Hostages

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: What do you think about new shows that have a premise that seems unsustainable beyond one season? When Revenge was announced, it seemed like a good idea for a miniseries rather than a long-term program, and with the results we saw in the second season, that doesn't seem so far off. The new CBS show Hostages sounds interesting, but it doesn't seem like something you could continue beyond the initial 15-episode run without the writers coming up with convoluted ways to keep situations from being resolved or having it turn into a different show entirely. So I guess my question is: Do you think networks are getting desperate to have instant hits and aren't thinking about whether or not the show can last and still be good? — Mike

Henry Winkler on His Royal Pains Return and "Insane" Parks and Rec Guest Spot

Henry Winkler and Paulo Costanzo

To some — OK, millions — Henry Winkler will always be best known as Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli from the iconic TV series Happy Days. But to a whole new generation of fans, Winkler gets recognized for a much more recent role.

"I did a Broadway play in October and a little 10-year-old boy came up to me and said, 'Hi I'm your fan,'" Winkler tells TVGuide.com. "And I went, 'Oh, you read my books?' and he said, 'No, I love Royal Pains."

Since Winkler's debut on the show in Season 2, the actor has made quite an impression as the charming yet calculating Eddie R. Lawson. Eight months after... read more

Stephen Colbert to Kevin Spacey: "Why Should You Get an Award for TV When You're Not on TV?"

Kevin Spacey

Why We Still Can't Stop Talking About Orange Is the New Black

Taylor Schilling

It's been one month since Orange is the New Black premiered on Netflix and if you haven't finished yet, you're making a mistake. And don't even get me started on those of you who haven't begun watching.

Unlike Netflix's previous original series, which were self-indulgent (House of Cards), uneven (Arrested Development) and downright bizarre (Hemlock Grove), Orange has inspired a passionate following precisely because it's nothing like its streaming predecessors — or like anything else on TV, for that matter.  The summer lull between Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad is such an especially dark place for television that a comedy-drama set in a women's prison immediately became more than just a welcome change of pace; it became an obsession. And Orange is more than worthy of the attention.

Ask Matt: S.H.I.E.L.D. vs. NCIS, Glee Tragedy, Orphaned at the Emmys

Cote de Pablo

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: NCIS has been a ratings juggernaut for CBS for many years. It has consistently been the top-rated show. But I wonder if that is going to last. ABC has scheduled Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opposite NCIS this fall. I know S.H.I.E.L.D. has a lot of positive heat going for it at the moment. It's also directly tied to a series of blockbuster movies. And now the very popular Cote de Pablo is leaving. Her character Ziva's chemistry with Tony has been a major draw. I know the show is going to have to very careful in who they hire to take her place. Could this be the season that knocks NCIS for a loop? Right now, it's looking a bit vulnerable. What are your thoughts? read more

Premise: A young man leads his oddball family and their real-estate-development business following a securities-fraud fiasco that put the father in jail. This is an arrestingly sophisticated and sardonic sitcom, with deliciously deadpan narration and stylish flashbacks, about mostly self-absorbed characters at odds with one another and the world at large.
