On the Set: Wizards of Waverly Place Prepares to Disappear

Wizards of Waverly Place

There's some pretty intense competition going on among the Wizards of Waverly Place cast as they begin shooting the final episode of the hit Disney Channel sitcom. Sure, there's that whole plot point about which Russo child will win the wizard competition and keep his or her powers. Just as fierce, though, is the battle over who gets to keep the comfy lounge chair in the wizards' lair.

Erika Slezak Goes to Heaven One Last Time on One Life to Live

Erica Slezak and Jessica Tuck

ABC's One Life to Live will come to an end next week after 43 years on the air. But, first, Victoria Lord will have one more chance to visit Heaven. The grande dame of Llanview — played by six-time Emmy winner Erika Slezak — is famous for her near-death, out-of-body experiences that land her at the Pearly Gates. She's back there again Monday, Jan. 9, along with her soulmate Clint (Jerry verDorn), after the two of them are shot in a shocking denouement to the Statesville Prison break. This time, Viki will be escorted to the afterlife by her late daughter Megan, played by returning fan fave Jessica Tuck, best known these days as the bitchy vampire activist Nan Flanagan on True Blood. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Slezak about Viki's latest brush with death and — dare we say it? — a possible reprieve for OLTL!

The Biz: CBS' Morning Glory?

CBS Logo

The exposed brick walls in the new Manhattan studio for CBS This Morning are lined with items that reflect the legacy of the network's news division. A world map from Walter Cronkite's years on the evening news that was rescued from a New Jersey warehouse hangs on one side. Across the way are shelves with books by CBS journalists, vintage TV sets and video cameras. Standing out amid the paraphernalia is a green-and-gold Oakland A's cap, meant to remind the program's staff of the film Moneyball, in which Brad Pitt plays the renegade baseball executive Billy Beane.

CBS This Morning executive producer Chris Licht screened the film at a private launch party for the cast and crew held at the Ed Sullivan Theater last month. The message to the troops: read more

Watch My Show: Once Upon a Time's Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis Take Our Showrunner Survey

Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz

The CW Orders Mystery Drama Pilot Cult

The CW Logo

The CW has handed its first pilot order of the season to Cult, an hour-long project about a TV show that inspires copycat crimes.

The drama centers on a young female production assistant who grows suspicious after a rash of disappearances and possible murder seem tied to the show she works on, called Cult. She teams up with a journalist blogger to begin looking into the show's rabid fans, who may be behind the actual crimes.

Rockne O'Bannon (Defiance) is behind the show, which has been developed several times over the years at the networks — including ABC last year, the CW in 2009 and at the... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Springfield Plays Cleveland

Rick Springfield

Rick Springfield is coming to Cleveland, but concert tickets are not available. The '80s Jesse's Girl icon, who appeared as Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital, will pop up this summer on an episode of TV Land's Hot in Cleveland.
