Now that Amanda Knox's Italian murder conviction has been overturned, Lifetime is racing to update its TV movie, Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy. As a stroke of luck for Lifetime, the cable network had already scheduled a re-airing of the film on Tuesday, October 4.

Now Lifetime is planning to quickly add a new brief opening to the movie, an "epilogue" of sorts detailing Monday's news, as well as read more

Keck's Exclusives: Which Funny Lady Is Modern Family's Cameron Trying to Pick Up?

Leslie Mann

One of my favorite comediennes — who has starred in the movies Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin and The Change-Up — has just booked a role on an upcoming Modern Family destined to be a classic (though really aren't they all?).

Leslie Mann will play a woman who Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) tries to pick up at a bar. No, Cam's not going all bi on us. Rather, it's part of a bet he makes with Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) to see if Cam is smooth ...

Watercooler: In Praise of Fringe's NewLivia

Anna Torv

Let us not feel anger at those who didn't watch last Friday's Fringe. For while yes, they helped contribute to one of the show's lowest Nielsens ever, they too deprived themselves of a showcase for Anna Torv's latest iteration of her Agent Olivia Dunham. Call her NewLivia. And pity the fools who missed this standout episode.

Having already given us Original Recipe Olivia, the alt-world's Bolivia (or Fauxlivia), Bolivia-As-Olivia and the Spock-possessed BelLivia, Torv is now up to her awesome in the fifth version of this complex ...

Exclusive: Debbi Morgan Finally Talks About Her Hush-Hush Role on The Young and the Restless

Debbi Morgan

There will soon be a lot of Harmony in Genoa City... and some folks won't like it one bit. Emmy-winning phenom Debbi Morgan — formerly Dr. Angie Hubbard on All My Children — will join The Young and the Restless on Friday, October 7 as the ne'er-do-well, drug-addict mother of Devon Hamilton (Bryton James).

These days, Yolanda has gotten off the crack, named herself Harmony and has started a new life as a waitress in a Milwaukee diner. TV Guide Magazine went down to the Y&R set to chat with Morgan about her hot new ...

First Look: Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman Team Up on The Brave and the Bold

Batman

We sure are gonna miss Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Only a handful of episodes remain of the exuberant Cartoon Network series, and clearly there's no been no slacking off in the writers' room. This week's installment, "Triumvirate of Terror" (airing Friday, October 7 at 6/5c), is a charming and lighthearted tribute to the "Big 3" of DC Comics, with Superman and Wonder Woman teaming up with the Dark Knight. The trio meets at a diner for a meal of bacon cheeseburgers, fries and shakes while discussing what items to leave in a superhero time capsule. The fun doesn't last for long when their archenemies — the Joker, Lex Luthor and Cheetah — plan a team-up of their own. After years of futility they decide to switch ...

Cheers & Jeers: Morena Baccarin Lands on Homeland

Morena Baccarin

Cheers to Morena Baccarin for proving she's flesh and blood on Homeland.

The Brazilian-born actress is best known for her role as alien queen Anna on ABC's short-lived sci-fi remake V. That makes her down-to-earth work as Jessica, the morally conflicted wife of tortured ex-POW Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) on Showtime's anti-terrorism drama all the more refreshing. As Jessica deals with her husband's PTSD — and grapples with the affair she had with his best friend after she assumed he was dead — Baccarin gives an ...

Ask Matt: The Good Wife's Move, Community, Sons of Anarchy and More!

Julianna Margulies

Question: In previous years I followed CBS shows Shark and The Unit to their new time on Sunday evenings that ended up to be their last season. Because of the preceding football game, one never knows when a certain program will start, with delays that can last as long as an hour. This, of course, prevents one from switching to another network for a later program. Since we still have a video tape recorder that automatically fast-forwards over commercials (most of them), I would end up taping those shows, with an extra margin of half an hour. I don't know whether a TiVo type recorder can even adjust to such delays. It appears that The Good Wife will follow the same pattern. Perhaps this time I will watch it online, or On Demand. But I have to wonder how much this new time slot will affect its viewership (in addition to the new direction and hair style). — Hanna

Matt Roush: This is a perennial problem for viewers in the time zones where football overruns impact the start of CBS' prime-time lineup. (Rule of thumb: If you're not watching live, set the ...

Matt's Guide to Monday TV: Stephen King on Horror Movies, House Behind Bars and More!

Hugh Laurie

Happy Early Halloween: Turner Classic Movies launches a month-long series of Monday night horror marathons with the special A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King (8/7c), an enjoyable survey of the genre by one who knows. "Terror is something that lives in the head whereas the reaction we have to horror is ... visceral," the prolific author explains during a discussion of The Exorcist, one of many seminal movies featured here, including the original Cat People, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Night of the Living Dead and, of course, Halloween. Bela Lugosi's Dracula, however, never impressed the King: "To me, he looked like some kind of wacked-out concert pianist." Tonight's lineup of spooky classics includes the original 1931 Frankenstein and the notorious Freaks, plus in the wee hours the silent masterpieces Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu and Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera.
