Falling Skies: It's Not About the Aliens; It's About What They Left Behind

Noah Wyle

Sci-fans have seen aliens ravage Earth many times before, from Independence Day to V. But TNT's Falling Skies will be different. It won't be about those meddlesome aliens. It will be about what happens after our extra-terrestrial friends have left.

The Steven Spielberg-produced Falling Skies, which debuts next summer, picks up six months after an alien invasion has wiped out a sizeable chunk of the human population. Did they leave any... read more

MTV, CW Tops GLAAD's Gay-Friendly Programming Survey; CBS Fails Again

90210

MTV has received GLAAD's first "excellent" rating in the organization's annual survey of gay-friendly programming, for its inclusion of LGBT characters or issues.

"From their inception, MTV programs like The Real World and America's Best Dance Crew have offered richly diverse portrayals of gay and transgender people that help Americans better understand and accept our community," said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios.

Glee honored at GLAAD Awards

After reviewing nearly 5,000 hours of primetime programming, GLAAD also announced that The CW has moved into ... read more

Angie Harmon's on the Case in Rizzoli & Isles

Angie Harmon

How can you not love Angie Harmon? Not only is the former model still superfine, but she is also packing
major brains and brass behind that pretty face. So it's fitting that her Rizzoli & Isles (Mondays, 10/9c, TNT) character, Beantown detective Jane Rizzoli, is proving herself to the old boys' club tonight when she takes on her pill of a new boss (Donnie Wahlberg).

Helping Harmon's case? Real-life research... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Rizzoli & Isles Cops Out

Lorraine Bracco

Jeers to Rizzoli & Isles for criminally neglecting its high-caliber supporting cast.

Per its title, the hit TNT crime drama follows the cutesy exploits of Beantown galpals Det. Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander). The wildly overqualified and underutilized ensemble includes Emmy nominee Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) and Oscar nominee Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway) as Rizzoli's stereotypically squabbling mom and dad ... read more

The Closer Creator James Duff: Our Show Is "Ruthlessly Apolitical"

The Closer

The Closer is ruthlessly apolitical. The writers have opinions on national affairs, of course, but we don't think our little show is a place to air them. I mention this as preamble to one of the very best episodes we've ever produced because, between the time "Help Wanted" was written and shot, and it's date-of-air, the state of Arizona passed a new law dealing with the hot button issue of illegal immigration. And many people who watch the show might suppose we are commenting — one way or another — on this deeply problematic issue. We are not; we wouldn't even try.... read more

Leverage's Aldis Hodge Previews John Schneider's Guest Appearance

Aldis Hodge

This week's episode of Leverage is nothing but a fun ride, guest-starring "Mr. Dukes of Hazzard" himself, John Schneider. He comes in to play a mean, greasy record company CEO stealing people's dreams, when in real life he couldn't be farther from that. He was such a great guy to have on the set and off, as he ran around the city of Portland with the lot of us. He came with such professionalism and spirit.... read more

Memphis Beat Episode Recap: "Polk Salad Annie"

This week's episode is all about finger lickin' goodness and family drama as Dwight and his crew try to solve an attempted murder amidst the backdrop of a tasty Memphis barbecue fest. The opening shot features our favorite detective by day/crooner by night, Dwight, belting out the title Elvis tune "Polk Salad Annie" saying he's going to tell us a story.  Alright then, here we go!

Rizzoli & Isles Premiere Draws Big Audience

Rizzoli & Isles

The premiere of Rizzoli & Isles attracted 7.6 million viewers, making it the second-biggest cable TV series debut ever.

Monday night's launch of the TNT crime drama finished slightly behind the 2008 unveiling of Raising the Bar — and it managed to... read more

Celebrity Blogs: The Closer Creator James Duff Previews "The Big Bang"

The Closer

Those audience members familiar with The Closer's dedication to authenticity will not be surprised to find that several things have changed from Season 5 to Season 6. The LAPD moved into new headquarters, and so have we; their Chief-of-Police retired and so will ours; the race to fill this all-important post consumed the city's police department for a time, as it will also completely consume Assistant Chief Will Pope, who hopes to claim this position as his own. Pope's ambitions will forever alter his relationship with his subordinate, friend and ex, Brenda Leigh Johnson. And so, because the center of gravity completely changes for all our characters this year, we adopted the theme of attraction.
