The Biz: Jackie Kennedy In Her Own Words

Jackie Kennedy

Generations of Americans have seen thousands of pictures of Jacqueline Kennedy, but they seldom heard her voice after her time as first lady. "She gave very few interviews, so we had very little insight into what she was really thinking behind those incredible photographs," says ABC World News anchor Diane Sawyer. On September 13, in the two-hour special Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words, Sawyer unveils recorded conversations between the iconic and often mysterious former first lady and historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr.

Cable's Big Players Get into the Reality TV Business

USA, TNT, AMC, FX

Rizzoli & Isles, meet Mark Burnett. Cable networks like TNT, USA, FX and AMC became scripted powerhouses while mostly ignoring reality TV — until now. All four networks have big plans to enter the reality arena in the coming year in a bid to keep up with the times.

Last week, TNT — known up until now as the home to dramas like Rizzoli — picked up the reality competition pilot Fortune Hunters, from ace reality producer Burnett. And over at AMC, the Mad Men network added two more reality projects to its plate: JJK Security, shot inside a real-life rural Georgia ...

Finale Review: Rescue Me

Denis Leary

Few things are more satisfying than watching a great episode of TV with an appreciative audience. Such was the case Wednesday night when FX screened the Rescue Me finale (my second viewing, but my first on the big screen) at New York's grand Ziegfeld Theater, a benefit for Denis Leary's Firefighters Foundation. Fittingly, a number of NYFD's finest were in the crowd, laughing at all the right places and cheering at many others (and maintaining a respectful silence when things got serious, which never lasted for very long).

It was a triumphant end to one of cable's most distinctive (if sometimes maddening) series, a well-timed tribute to ...

The NFL Rushes Back for Another Thrilling Season

NFL

It was the $9 billion question: Could NFL owners and players reach an agreement to end the bitter lockout threatening the 2011 season? After a resounding yes on July 25, teams scrambled to get ready. Record-setting TV ratings last year cemented the game's status as America's favorite sport, but what can fans expect on the field in the wake of the time-consuming labor dispute? "Teams that had very little change are going to have a huge advantage once the season starts," says CBS analyst Rich Gannon. "Some teams that have new quarterbacks, new systems, they're going to struggle." As the season kicks off tonight, TV Guide Magazine asked NFL analysts to tackle five burning questions... read more

Watercooler: Was Rescue Me's Series Finale Hot or Not?

Rescue Me

Smoke 'em if ya got 'em folks!

Last night, Rescue Me rang its final alarm with an intensely fitting finale. By centering on the aftermath of Lou's death, we got a heaping load of the show's gallows humor and tough-guy heart, best displayed as the crew gathered to spread the red velvet "ashes" of their fallen Lieutenant. And while the finale was timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11, star Denis Leary and show creator Peter Tolan allowed the memory of that tragic day to... read more
