After a down-to-the-wire negotiation, Lifetime has sealed a deal to bring back the Marc Cherry-produced soap Devious Maids for a third season.
Lifetime picked up 13 new episodes to air sometime in 2015. "Marc Cherry has created a uniquely twisted world that blends his...
If Emily VanCamp gets her way, this will be one helluva final season for ABC's Revenge. Actually, the actress would have even been satisfied had last May's jaw-dropping finale spelled the end of her vengeful character Emily Thorne's (aka Amanda Clarke) three-year takedown of the conspirators she blamed for her father's false imprisonment and death. In the season ender, Emily's...
Paul Reubens — the actor sometimes known as Pee-Wee Herman — joins NBC's The Blacklist for at least two episodes next month, and TV Guide Magazine has the first look at his character.
Reubens plays Mr. Vargas, a mysterious fixer for the underground criminal world. He first appears in the episode "Dr. Linus Creel," which airs on Monday, Oct. 6 at 10/9c. In the episode, Red (James Spader) warns Liz (Megan Boone) that a social-psychological experiment may be behind a series of killings at the hands of seemingly nonviolent people.
Mort Pfefferman's entire life has been an identity crisis. A divorced dad of three grown, though not always grown-up, children, melancholy Mort is truly at ease only when in the heretofore secret guise of his feminine alter ego, Maura. In a flashback from 20 years earlier, Maura laments, "No one's ever seen me except me" — a situation that's about to change as the funky younger Pfeffermans slowly get to know the truth about their trans parent in Amazon's Transparent (get it?), creator Jill Soloway's deeply felt, intensely human comedy. This series (available on Amazon Instant Prime starting Friday) should do for Amazon, reputation-wise, what House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black achieved for Netflix. It's at least their equal, with the feel and tone of...
He's not just "America's Favorite," he's also a soap star! Big Brother 16 contestant Donny Thompson wasn't named champ on last night's season finale of the CBS reality hit — he was evicted from the house weeks ago — but at the end of the show, the North Carolina groundskeeper did bag $25,000 in a viewer popularity poll.
Now he's off to the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, where he'll appear in scenes on Oct. 30-31 with Emmy winner Scott Clifton (Liam) and Aussie beauty Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) that'll riff on the paranoia Donny caused on Big Brother — he was so humble and down-home nice that the other houseguests suspected he was really a genius doctor from Harvard or an undercover super soldier.

If Grey's Anatomy is an oversexed St. Elsewhere, and Scandal a frenzied object lesson on how to put the woo-woo in The West Wing, then the latest Shondaland extravaganza, ABC's juicy legal melodrama How To Get Away With Murder (10/9c), is The Paper Chase on steroids. This instantly addictive thriller appears to have been written on...
There's nothing wrong with your TV reception! The beloved PBS Kids series Arthur returns for its 18th season Monday, Sept. 29 with an all-new series of adventures including a black-and-white riff on Hollywood film noir that finds Buster Baxter the rabbit turning private eye.
Also look for spoofs on The Wizard of Oz and...

As the fall TV season gets underway, you're going to hear a lot about "live-plus-3-day" and "live-plus-7-day" ratings in the coming weeks. More viewers are watching TV on a delayed basis, and network executives would prefer that everyone stop talking about next-day ratings, which don't capture the full audience snapshot, and instead wait to include several more days of time-shifted viewing.
