Where We Left Off and What’s Next on Devious Maids

Judy Reyes, Roselyn Sánchez and Ana Ortiz

Lifetime's hit Devious Maids is just going into its second season, but does the juicy prime-time drama already have to worry about a name change? After all, when the series returns for Season 2 on Sunday (10/9c), not one, but two of the women will have packed their feather dusters (seemingly) for good. "We worry about that all the time and you will understand just how worried we are as the season progresses," executive producer Sabrina Wind tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "Let's just say maybe not everybody keeps their role." So what else is coming up for Marisol, Carmen, Rosie, Zoila and their employers in 90210 this year? Read on to find out... read more

Weekend TV: Orphan Black, Salem, Lifetime Making Whoopi

Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris

"You are a bloody wrecking ball. You are an exploding cigar," laments a confidante of the clones under siege in BBC America's thrillingly entertaining Orphan Black. She's also a bloody marvel, as Tatiana Maslany plays these diverse doppelgangers with astonishing range and surprising nuance. Scrappy street waif? Check. High-strung soccer mom? Check. Lesbian scientist-in-training? Check. Deranged Russian assassin? Why not. Beyond a provocative premise and blistering pace, Orphan Black is a terrific showcase for one of TV's great performances. Even when it threatens to look like a stunt, with one clone at another's throat in a smackdown or layering the subterfuge when one clone pretends to be another, this bonded-by-genetics sister act never feels forced or phony.

Survivor's L.J.: "I Was Completely Shocked" by Tony's Betrayal

LJ McKanas

Tony Vlachos is certainly not winning any friends on Survivor: Cagayan. Now that we've gotten to the portion of the game where people voted off become members of the jury, two out of three jurors heading into next week are victims of blindsides at least partially engineered by the New Jersey cop.

The latest castoff, L.J. McKanas, became the victim of an eyebrow-raising betrayal by Tony on Wednesday's episode, getting blindsided just a few episodes after he gave Tony his immunity idol at Tribal Council.

"I was completely shocked," McKanas tells TVGuide.com about his ouster. "I mean, when I replayed it in my mind, I thought, there's no circumstance where that makes any sense."
