The Americans' Second Season Focuses on Family, Russia's Turbulent Class System

Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys

After spending years in a foreign country pretending to be married in order to infiltrate the United States, only now have The American's dynamic duo Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) come to realize what they really mean to each other.

Fortunately, Elizabeth does survive her run-in with the FBI in the Season 1 finale, and the super spies will explore what it's really like to be married and actually love each other in Season 2. But they'll have other problems to contend with this year as the children become more aware of the often strange lives their parents lead.

The Americans Finale Postmortem: Who survived Season 1?

And let's not forget that they're still spies, so there's that little issue of the Cold War reaching a boiling point. How will they deal? To get the scoop, TVGuide.com sat down with executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, who also tease trouble in the rezidentura with the arrival of one of the Soviet Union's upper elite, Nina's (Annet Mahendru) precarious new position with Stan (Noah Emmerich) and the possibility that Elizabeth and Phillip's secret lives may not stay secret for much longer: read more

Amazing Race's Bopper: Withdrawal Was "Heartbreaking"

Bopper

The Amazing Race All-Stars made its first elimination before the race even started. That "gut-wrenching" start Phil Keoghan described saw fan fave Bopper bow out at the starting line due to an inflamed pancreas. Instead of his BFF Mark withdrawing as well, Bopper was replaced by fellow Kentuckian and now three-time Racer Mallory. "The whole thing was just terrible timing," Bopper tells TVGuide.com. "But as much as I wish I could've gone, I wanted Mark to go even more. He shouldn't miss out on this because of me." See what else the Season 20 alum had to say about his withdrawal and how it all went down.

Mind Games: What Happens When Con Men Try to Do Good?

Mind Games

Like many actors considering a new project, Steve Zahn says he was sucked into ABC's Mind Games based solely on the pilot script.

"I was floored by it," Zahn, who was just wrapping up a four-season run on HBO's Treme when he first the script, tells TVGuide.com. "I really thought it was a cable show. It didn't read like network to me."

Winter Preview: Check out all the must-see new shows

Perhaps Zahn should have looked a little closer at the author's name. Mind Games creator Kyle Killen's back catalog includes a pair of complex series with brilliant pilots that critics instantly labeled as "cable shows on broadcast TV." ... read more

Amazing Race's Natalie and Nadiya: "We Were Just a Hot Mess"

Natalie and Nadiya

Natalie and Nadiya nearly made the final three on The Amazing Race 21, but they came nowhere near as close on All-Stars. The twins became the first team eliminated Sunday after they self-destructed searching for a bridal shop in China and second-guessed their decision to enter an even-numbered ferris wheel booth, which contained their next clue. "It was just terrible," Natalie tells TVGuide.com. "We were out of control, we had bad luck. It was not our day at all." Ironically, it was their previous performance on Season 21 that played a part in their downfall, they believe. Keep reading to find out why.

Did Downton Abbey Lose Its Charm? Finale Rounds Out a Frustrating Season

Michelle Dockery, Julian Ovenden

[WARNING: The following contains spoilers from the Season 4 finale of Downton Abbey. Read at your own risk.]

We are grateful to have Downton Abbey in our lives, but our devotion to the show is the very reason we're so irked at how it progressed this season.

Although we've come to terms with the loss of Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay), it doesn't seem like the writers quite know what to do in the wake of those deaths. So much of this season felt either forced or false or just failed miserably. Has Downton Abbey lost its charm?

Before launching into the season as a whole, let's go over the highlights of the finale, shall we?

Nancy Kerrigan Looks Back on "Sad" Tonya Harding Scandal, Defends Herself: I Wasn't Whining

Nancy Kerrigan

Nancy Kerrigan opened up for the first time about the Whack Heard 'Round the World Sunday on NBC's documentary Nancy & Tonya. And befitting someone who has avoided the spotlight the past 20 years, she doesn't waste many words describing the scandal that ushered in the age of salacious celebrity headlines.

It's sad," Kerrigan said. "The bizarre craziness that all transpired — it's all sad."

NBC revisits Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding scandal in "fascinating character study"

Kerrigan was infamously clubbed in the knee at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in an attack hatched by Tonya Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and clumsily executed by Shane Stant, who jumped through a Plexi-glass door to flee. Though many people, including Harding's former coach, entertained the possibility that Harding was somehow linked to it, Kerrigan revealed that ...
