Exclusive: The Teen Wolf Pack Grows!

Stephen Lunsford

Beacon Hills' population — and problems — will be growing big-time when MTV's howlingly sexy supernatural drama comes back this summer, TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively.

With production underway in Atlanta on Teen Wolf's second season, the returning original cast is being joined by four new recurring characters who sound like... read more

The Guide to Thursday TV: Bones, An Office Visitor, A Country Christmas, and More!

Bones

Always a popular (if sometimes contentious) topic in my Ask Matt forum, Fox's Bones refutes any notion that its heart isn't in the right place in this week's ultimately touching episode (9/8c). Ralph Waite (forever Papa Walton to many of us, though nowadays better known as Jethro's dad on NCIS) makes a welcome return as Booth's grandfather, bearing some unwelcome news that has the very pregnant Bones (Emily Deschanel) wondering how best to reach ...

Keck's Exclusives: Former Law & Order: SVU Executive Producer Releases Crime Novel

Neal Baer

During his 11-year reign as Law & Order: SVU's executive producer, Neal Baer dissected the horrors of nearly every sex-crime scenario imaginable. But there's one story he never tackled. "We never explored on SVU what it's like for the child of a child molester to deal with what their parent has done," says Baer, who now executive produces CBS's A Gifted Man. "The legacy haunts the child of the molester as well as the molester's victim."

This storyline is touched on in Neal's new novel, Kill Switch (out December 13), a medical thriller he describes as "the best of SVU meets medicine." Neal jumped on the phone to give us a preview of what's inside the pages... read more

The Guide to Wednesday TV: Two New Comedies to Hate, the Whitechapel Finale

The Exes

Comedy is very hot this TV season — thank ABC's best-of-class Wednesday comedies (all in repeats tonight), CBS' Monday blockbusters, NBC's cult faves and Fox's giddy New Girl — but two lousy new sitcom arrivals buck the trend, leaving a sour aftertaste.

Normally I'd celebrate at any circumstance that shrinks The X Factor to 90 minutes, but in this case, it opens the door for Fox's unpleasant I Hate My Teenage Daughter (9:30/8:30c), which traps two gifted comedians — My Name Is Earl's Emmy-winning spitfire Jaime Pressly and two-time Tony-winning scene-stealer Katie Finneran — in no-win roles as shrill moms who used to be ugly ducklings and are now cowed by their bratty offspring (forgettably rendered by Aisha Dee and Kristi Lauren), who are turning out to be the sort of spoiled mean girls who tormented the moms back when they were in high school.

Exclusive: Chandler Massey Delivers Scoop on His Days of Our Lives Coming Out Plot

Chandler Massey

He's sure no poster boy for GLAAD. Will Horton, the Days of Our Lives teenager played by Chandler Massey, is gay and deeply, desperately in denial about it. And his coming-out story won't take the politically safe route. Days currently has another young gay character — Will's friend Sonny, played by former 90210 star Freddie Smith — who is out and proud and inspiringly comfortable in his own skin. But Will's saga will be packed with guilt, rage, violence, drinking and blackmail — and that's weeks before the kid even has his first gay kiss! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Massey to get some exclusive deets on where this landmark plot is headed. Spoiler warning!

Terra Nova Braces for Explosive Season Finale

Jason O'Mara, Stephen Lang

Don't expect the season finale of Fox's Terra Nova to end with a bang — it starts with one! Airing December 19, the two-hour episode kicks off with the colonists warily awaiting the arrival of the 11th Pilgrimage. They're not sure if this is good news or bad. Bet on the latter. "Our evil guys, the Phoenix Group, will send somebody through the portal with a bomb, and it explodes," says exec producer René Echevarria. "Jim Shannon [Jason O'Mara] is hit by the blast and wakes up three days later to a very surreal scene — Phoenix soldiers have taken command of the colony."
