Joseph Fiennes, Claire Forlani, Jamie Campbell Bower
There's plenty of sword play and sex scenes in Starz' upcoming take on the legendary story of Camelot. But star Jamie Campbell Bower says those expecting "a beefy King Arthur" should keep looking.
"We find this character when he's in his late teens. What I didn't want to have was ...
Jimmi Simpson and Serinda Swan
Breakout Kings may sound like a reincarnation of Prison Break — the executive producers are the same and a Prison Break character will even appear on the A&E series — but producers Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead insist it is not the same show.
"It's a completely different show," Santora said at Friday's Television Critics Association's winter preview sessions. "It's really not about people breaking out of prison; it's about...
Melissa and Joan Rivers
Joan Rivers has made an entire career out of being brutally honest, whether through vicious stand-up or her infamous red carpet critiques.
So it's no shocker that Rivers was more than game to take aim at everything from Oprah's new network to Jersey Shore during the Television Critics Association's winter previews.

"Does anyone want to know about our new network? It's called Rent," Rivers, 77, joked less than 24 hours after...
How did Ricky Gervais' next show, An Idiot Abroad, wind up on The Science Channel? Thank Karl Pilkington.
Fans of Gervais and Stephen Merchant's popular podcast (and subsequent HBO series) already know Pilkington is the pair's friend and longtime punching bag. In An Idiot Abroad — billed by the network as "the most elaborate practical joke-turned-social experiment in television history" — Gervais and Merchant send him to see the Seven Wonders of the world.

Gervais explained why Pilkington has the makings of a Science Channel star. "Karl sees things very differently from the rest of us," he said via satellite Thursday during the Television Critics Association's winter previews. "He does investigate, he does do what science does and...
Noah Wyle, the star of Steven Spielberg's new TNT alien-invasion series, Falling Skies, is still intimidated by his boss.

The Vampire Diaries
Midway through Season 2, the CW series The Vampire Diaries has already featured death, destruction and multiple transformations. For viewers, the most fun to watch, no question, has been the metamorphosis of Caroline Forbes.
2010's Best Episodes: Vampire Diaries' killer transformation
Throughout Season 1, Caroline, played by Candice Accola, was the quintessential popular girl in school, full of insecurities despite her cheerful outer shell. And although it appears that becoming a vampire has actually softened her, Accola tells TVGuide.com, the compassion was...
Retired at 35
When it came time to lure George Segal back to primetime television for TV Land's new sitcom Retired at 35, he had two mandates: his character would have to smoke cigars and play the banjo.
"I said [it was that] or no dice," the industry veteran, 76, joked Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn.'s winter preview session.
Added series creator and executive producer Chris Case: "There was no banjo in the original pilot script until George came on board. It's so collaborative, this medium. You go, you know what George Segal plays the banjo. Let's do that."

Benjamin McKenzie and John Cudlitz
It's odd to think that the cast of a show entering its third season has never shot more than six episodes at a time, but that's the case for TNT's Southland.
The gritty police drama debuted as a midseason replacement on NBC in 2009 and earned a 13-episode renewal for Season 2. Then, NBC canceled the show before it even premiered, allowing TNT to buy and air the six episodes NBC had in the can in early 2010.

So when TNT ordered a 10-episode third season, which begins Tuesday at 10/9c, the cast and crew were equally excited and cynical. "Well, the joke on set is...
