Boardwalk Empire Exclusive: Gangster Rapture

Boardwalk Empire

Three faces of Boardwalk Empire grace a photo studio in Manhattan's meatpacking district on a sunny Saturday: Gretchen Mol is glowing, not only because she's expecting her second child, but because her makeup's done and she now sits rosy-hued as her stylist affixes fiery-red extensions to her blonde locks. Michael Pitt, the very image of laconic Hollywood cool in his gelled locks and pinstripes, lounges on a sofa languidly strumming his acoustic guitar. Finally, a haggard Steve Buscemi shuffles in. He's here on two hours sleep, having worked till 4am directing an episode of Nurse Jackie. He plops down, takes one look at the tape recorder ...

Ask Matt: On Modern TV Families, Community, Big Bang, LUX and More!

The Middle

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: My current favorite show on TV is Modern Family. How could anyone not love that show? My other favorite show is Friday Night Lights. How it has never been a huge hit baffles me. Both are such refreshing, positive shows about everyday families. There are no other shows that portray families in such a realistic way. Instead of amoral teenagers who have little to no parental influence or just overly dramatic dysfunctional families, these shows celebrate the best of what families are: They fight with and for their each other, but it is because ...

Nigel Lythgoe

After a couple of seasons were the backstage drama eclipsed the onscreen suspense, American Idol is finally back to being fun, says executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.

"It's a whole different atmosphere now," he told TV Guide Magazine at the 7th Annual Gala benefiting the Alfred E. Mann Foundation. "Everything is so positive. I think the last couple of years, because everyone was always so worried about ratings and Simon going or Simon not going, it... read more

Jane Badler, Laura Vandervoort and Morena Baccarin

After a year and a half hiatus, the New York Comic Con returned this weekend, drawing a reported crowd of 100,000 to the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan. The event doesn't quite have the star power of San Diego's Comic-Con International, but it's quickly becoming one of the top fan events for sci-fi related movies and TV as well as video games and, of course, comic books.

 

One of the weekend's biggest draws was a panel for... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Smallville's Lois Becomes Isis!

Smallville

Smallville may make us wait until the bitter end to see Tom Welling in his Superman suit, but on the October 22 episode we'll get to see Lois costumed as another Superfriend.

Keck's Exclusives: First Look at Glee's Rocky Horror Episode

Glee

Grab your toast, toilet paper and squirt guns and prepare to dance the "Time Warp." Just in time for Halloween, Glee's New Directions gang is staging The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the October 26 episode.

"I've loved Rocky Horror since I first saw it when I was 12," says Chris Colfer (Kurt). "There is no point to it except being crazy and having a good time." And boy, do they ever. The visionary behind the looks, which include Kurt as Riff Raff, Lea Michele's Rachel as Janet and Amber Riley's Mercedes as Frank-N-Furter, is costume designer Lou Eyrich.

"The Glee kids' take on Rocky Horror is a little more hip," says Eyrich. The outfits, with a price tag north of $30,000, were inspired by both the stage version and the 1975 film. All of the actors were "so excited to see what everyone was wearing when they came to the wardrobe trailer," Eyrich adds. No wonder!

Flamboyant NFL Stars Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco Talk It Out The T.Ocho Show

Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens

Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco are going deep — on their own weekly talk show. "There are no topics really that are off-limits," Owens says of Versus' The T.Ocho Show, which pairs two of the most opinionated, controversial, in-your-face players in the NFL. "I think Chad is the louder of the two mouths — definitely when we have something to say it's heard."

T.O., who joined Ochocinco in the Cincinnati Bengals receiving corps this season, isn't worried about the league taking offense... read more
