Vampire Diaries' Teen Wolf

The Vampire Diaries

Oh, what the howl? After last week's jaw-dropping face-off between Mystic Falls' vampires and werewolves, it sounds like things are about to get even more hair-raising on The Vampire Diaries. "The werewolves want vengeance so bad," says executive producer Kevin Williamson. "And now that Jules knows Tyler is a werewolf, she gives him a choice to make: Is he with the werewolves?"

Siding with the furrier folks in town could come with a hefty price ... read more

Transformers Primed for an Animated Comeback

Transformers Prime

Having written the first two Transformers movies, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were ready to take a break from the robots-in-disguise franchise. "We'd spent more time on Transformers than we even spent going to college, so we figured maybe it was time to take a break," Orci tells TV Guide Magazine. "But then (Hasbro chief executive) Brian Goldner came to us and asked if we wanted to do an animated series."

That new program, Transformers Prime, bowed last fall as a five-part miniseries, but now returns as a full-fledged series this Friday, Feb. 11, at 6:30/5:30c on The Hub, the new kids channel formed by Hasbro and Discovery Communications. The Hub ordered ... read more

Guest Column: House's Doctor of Desires

House

To celebrate Valentine's Day, we asked best-selling romance writer and House fan Eloisa James how House stacks up against the heroes in her books.

At first glance, Dr. House is nothing like a conventional romantic hero. Can you imagine him bare-chested on a book cover, a bodacious blonde (or perhaps a ravishing radiologist) drooping in his arms? Not so much. House is the "Hunchback of Princeton," as Hugh Laurie himself once said. He's a disagreeable, physically (and emotionally) crippled genius. He'd hold up that blonde just long enough to point out her roots. The Cranky Cripple and the Bodacious Bride would never make it to the shelves — just ask my editor.

As the TV series has gone on, though, it's become evident that ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Which Original 90210-er is Landing on The Event?

Gabrielle Carteris

Many of us (myself included) were stunned to realize that in January, original Beverly Hills, 90210 star Gabrielle Carteris became the first of her old Peach Pit gang to turn the big 5-0.

Well, if you're wondering what Gabrielle looks like now (pretty amazing actually!), you'll find out on March 14 when she debuts as an alien on NBC's The Event. Gabrielle's character, Diane Geller, who appears again on the March 21 episode, is an old friend of ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Jason Ritter Would Consider Playing Jack Tripper if Recruited by James Franco

Jason Ritter

As I first reported last week, Oscar host and nominee James Franco is in talks with the Three's Company estate holders about developing the 1977-84 sitcom into a feature film and Broadway play — possibly with a dramatic take, after presenting this unusual concept as ... read more

Watercooler: The Forecast for Mr. Sunshine

Mr. Sunshine

If you hadn't heard — the screams of those irate Cougar Town fans were quite loud — Matthew Perry returned to series TV last night on Mr. Sunshine. And since almost every outlet known to man has run a review of his new sitcom about the misanthropic manager of a sports entertainment arena (mostly unkind assessments of the reworked pilot, the forced writing and the abusive decision to ... read more

The Biz: Which Shows Will Be Canceled?

Detroit 1-8-7

The broadcast networks are at work on their new fall shows, which means some of your favorites will be moving on. Here are the series facing an uncertain future.

ABC
The network wants to bring back Desperate Housewives but still has to make deals with the show's stars. "Everyone is hopeful and optimistic that we'll be returning for an eighth season," executive producer Marc Cherry tells TV Guide Magazine. "But until the women have signed on, there's no guarantee." ABC needs Housewives for at least another year to launch something new in the slot that follows it, especially if ... read more

Now here's some stunt casting to get your nostalgic juices flowing.

Exclusive First Look Video: Fringe's "Vicious, Vicious" Triangle Heats Up

Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson

In a perfect world, it would be all about Peter and Olivia. But in Fringe's alternate universe, there's that damn Fauxlivia to worry about, too. And with young Mr. Bishop still harboring the warm-and-fuzzies for his Mata Hari from the other side, not to mention a pileup of major revelations that come out in this week's episode (Friday, 9/8c on Fox), things just can't be black or white... or in the show's multiverse color scheme, red or blue.

Who should our hero pick, Liv or the liar? In the exclusive video after the jump, the cast discusses TV's trickiest threesome, Peter's, um, bedroom abilities, and how the fate of mankind may actually rest on his decision... read more
