Gen. Wesley Clark
Turner Classic Movies does not mess around. When execs at the oldies-but-goldies channel needed an esteemed military expert to cohost its 100th anniversary tribute to World War I, they went straight to retired General Wesley Clark, a 34-year veteran of the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense. Yes, the General knows his movies! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Clark about TCM's 43-film marathon, which appropriately kicks off on...
She may be the fairest of them all but you won't find Snow White in the new Disney XD cartoon series The 7D. This sassy, madcap take on the beloved Seven Dwarfs (premiering Monday, July 7 at 10 a.m./9c) is set in the merry but trouble-plagued kingdom of Jollywood where Queen Delightful constantly needs Snow's former cronies to save her — especially from Hildy Gloom, the fashionista witch voiced by Kelly Osbourne, who is determined to take over the royal palace and redo it in pink plaid.

Kelli Berglund, China Anne McClain
Fresh off the success of last week's Zapped, Disney Channel has set an airdate for its next original movie, How to Build a Better Boy. The comedy adventure, starring China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm) and Kelli Berglund (Lab Rats) will premiere Friday, Aug. 15 at 8/7c.
How to Build a Better Boy stars McClain and Berglund as Gabby and Mae, science whizzes but social outcasts who dream up Albert, a fake boyfriend for Mae. Then Albert comes to life as a robot soldier — and the girls discover that Mae's dad actually works for the military (which wants to get its hands on their creation).

Daytime's hottest and juiciest mess — the Hilary-Neil-Devon love triangle on CBS's The Young and the Restless — is about to take a turn for the worse (and by that we mean best!) thanks to a fateful elevator ride. Mishael Morgan, who plays the just-married Hilary, gave TV Guide Magazine the torrid dish!
School's back in session at Community, which has received an 11th hour order to return for a sixth and last season via Yahoo. A sixth season of 13 episodes will be available exclusively on Yahoo Screen.

Reid Scott may be best known for his Veep character, sleazy ex-campaign manager Dan Egan, but kids are now recognizing him — or, at least, his voice — for a different reason. Scott returns to Netflix on Friday, June 27 as the streaming service posts a new batch of Turbo FAST episodes.
Scott plays the cartoon's title character, an unlikely racing champ who happens to be a snail. Based on the 2013 film Turbo, Turbo FAST is the first original children's series on Netflix, and the first of several heading to the service under its programming deal with DreamWorks Animation. Unlike its adult live-action series, Netflix is staggering episodes of Turbo FAST, which has a 26-episode order. This is the third batch of five-to-six episodes that Netflix continues to premiere around holidays.

Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi
PBS is getting back into the sitcom business this Sunday with Vicious, a British series starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. The show, which has already been picked up for a second season in the U.K., stars McKellen and Jacobi as an elderly gay couple that have been together for 50 years — and given how much they enjoy hurling insults at each other, it shows. Gary Janetti is the sole writer and executive producer on the show; his past credits include Will & Grace and Family Guy. Janetti filled out our TV Guide Magazine Showrunner Survey to explain why we should get Vicious.
After seven seasons of sexually transmitted comedy, Californication's vice-ridden writer Hank Moody is hanging up his black T-shirt (Sunday, June 29, 9:30/8:30c, Showtime). While Golden Globe—winning star David Duchovny admits "there's some sadness" to saying goodbye to the role, "I feel good. [Executive producer] Tom Kapinos did a great job pulling everything together."
Next month, Duchovny begins shooting NBC's Aquarius, playing a cop tracking Charles Manson, which marks the X-Files vet's return to creepy TV. "We'll be pushing the limit," he says. "It will be as dark as...
