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 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...
After months of speculation, Mitch Hurwitz told Rolling Stone that he's started work on an Arrested Development movie.
"I'm working on the movie right now," Hurwitz said. "I can't get into much more detail because I don't want to scare anybody off.
Even though Will Arnett is known for his comedic chops, he's all about the drama!
As part of TVGuide.com's Celebrity Watchlist video series, we asked the Arrested Development alum to reveal those shows that he considers appointment television.
Certain songs are so closely associated with a specific show and moment in television that it feels like blasphemy when another series dare use it for its own soundtrack. Here are 10 songs that shows need to avoid from here on out:
Stephen Colbert has a bone to pick with House of Cards star Kevin Spacey.
While interviewing Spacey — who's up for a Best Lead Actor in a Drama Emmy award for his role on the Netflix series — on The Colbert Report Wednesday, Colbert questioned the validity of Spacey's nomination. "Why should you get an award for TV when you're not on TV?" Colbert asked bluntly.

Listen up, Lorne Michaels! The fall season's almost here and we still haven't heard a peep about who's going to replace Saturday Night Live cast members Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and the soon-to-depart Seth Meyers.
So if you're having trouble making up your mind on who to hire, let me help you out.
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.
