"What a difference a year makes," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said during his opening remarks at the Television Critics Association winter previews Sunday.
Of course, he was referring to NBC's huge comeback this fall. On the strength of Sunday Night Football, a fall cycle of The Voice and new drama hit Revolution, NBC ended the fall as the No. 1 broadcast network. In fact, Greenblatt said the network was up 24 percent in the adults-18-to-49 demographic and 19 percent in total viewers; NBC was also the only network to improve in both measures this fall.
Below you can find all the scoop on NBC's new and returning shows from the Television Critics Association winter TV previews.
"The revolution and the battle against Monroe really begins."
That was the party line Sunday at Revolution's panel during NBC's winter TV previews, as executive producer Eric Kripke promised reporters that the second half of the series' freshman season will actually begin to deliver on the promise of the title...
On Once Upon a Time's main street in Storybrooke, resident evil queen Regina sits in her car, peering into her side mirror with tears streaming down her face. The mirror's reflection shows Emma breaking bad news to Henry — someone has been murdered in Storybrooke, and all signs point to Regina as the culprit. As Regina realizes she's likely lost Henry forever and more tears fall, the director yells, "Cut!" With only a minute or two to spare before the scene resets, Lana Parrilla dries her face, peers up in the air in an attempt to stop crying before reapplying more makeup. It's time to do the scene again, and this time, it draws even more local looky-loos. That's because the Storybrooke set of ABC's fairy tale drama isn't closed to the public, but a real working street in Steveston, a town just south of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.
Once Upon a Time Postmortem: A Storybrooke reunion! What's next?
Filming in Steveston is both a blessing and a, ahem, curse. On the one hand...
There are hot doctors who may have unrequited feelings for one another. Colleagues call one of the docs 007. Another doc is definitely McDreamy — and has the hair to prove it.
No, we're not talking about Grey's Anatomy. We're describing TNT's new medical drama Monday Mornings, a near carbon-copy of ABC's Seattle-based series. In David E. Kelley's new take on the medical world, doctors — including those played by Jamie Bamber, Alfred Molina, Ving Rhames and Jennifer Finnigan — in a Portland-based hospital face life-and-death decisions every day as they fight against often-impossible odds to save their patients.
What a difference a year makes.
A year ago, Cougar Town was waiting (and waiting) to start its third season on ABC after two acclaimed but low-rated seasons. ABC had held the show for midseason and didn't announce a return date until after eight months off the air. Now going into its fourth season (beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 10/9c) — its first on TBS — the show's return is no secret thanks to a constant stream of commercials and a...

Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion

Winter TV Preview: Get scoop on all the must-watch new shows
As we first reported, the episode, titled "Significant Others," finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) in a pickle when his "deep-fried Twinkie" ex-wife Meredith (Scandal's Darby Stanchfield) winds up crashing at Casa Castle after her planned trip to Europe falls through because Alexis (Molly Quinn) has mono. As luck would have it, Beckett (Stana Katic) is also sleeping over while her place is being fumigated.
Can we say awkward? In any case, based on our exclusive first look at the episode below, Beckett is a little bit unsure about to handle the threat of Meredith...
