AMC Cancels Rubicon

Rubcion

AMC just sent Rubicon a four-leaf clover: The critically lauded-but-low-rated conspiracy thriller will not be renewed for a second season, the network announced Thursday.

Exclusive: Rubicon boss makes a case for second season

"Rubicon gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story, and we're proud of the series," AMC said in a statement. "This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team."

The series told the story of intelligence analyst Will Travers... read more

Ask Matt: Fringe, Terriers, House, Bones, Fall Malaise and More!

Question: I know that you and many others are loving this season of Fringe with the alt-world, Doublivia high jinks but I am a bit more, shall we say, off-put. One of my problems is that I'm getting a very Charmed vibe about the whole thing. Allow me to explain. I was a devoted Charmed fan (until the unfortunate last season), but one of the staples of that show which always bothered me were the possession/body-swap type episodes. One of the sisters would be overtaken or possessed or swapped out or what have you and the other sisters would take forever and a day to noodle it out. No matter how strangely or out of character they acted, they would sense nothing was amiss until the whole thing blew up in their faces. With Fauxlivia in the mix on our side, I'm getting that familiar feeling of "Really? Come on!" when it comes to the continued obliviousness of the rest of the cast.... read more

Ask Matt: Go, Peggy! Plus White Collar, Big Bang, NCIS, and More!

Elisabeth Moss

Question: I'm starting to think Elisabeth Moss is going to have a major problem to deal with next summer: deciding which Mad Men episode to submit for Emmy consideration! Peggy has always been one of Mad Men's most complex and intriguing characters, but this season it just feels like Moss and the writers providing her material have been stepping it up more and more in each episode. I can't decide which Peggy moment has been my favorite so far this season: her dabblings in '60s counterculture, her moving reaction to the news of Trudy Campbell's pregnancy, her clever takedown of the horrid new art director, or any of her scenes with Don in the heartbreaking "The Suitcase" episode. What really is blowing my mind is that we're only about halfway through this season of Mad Men. If it's this good already, I can't even imagine how great the climactic episodes are going to be! I just wanted to check in and see if you have been enjoying Peggy lately as much as I have been... read more

Ask Matt: Post-Emmys, Plus Fall Preview, Secret Life, Huge, Weeds, Persons Unknown and More

Jim Parsons

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

Question: I was absolutely thrilled with the Emmys, both the show itself, plus the recipients of the awards were for once not terrible to watch. But a couple of questions remain. I was probably happiest that Jim Parsons received the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy, though I wish the show itself would have gotten recognition. I know that you have discussed previously why Big Bang Theory wasn't nominated and probably won't be, but do you think that Parsons' win could possibly change that? The show seems to be on a continuing upward spiral, and I hope that the Academy will maybe recognize that next year.

My mom and I were discussing the Emmys the morning after, and I told her that Modern Family had beat Glee in the comedy series category. She couldn't fathom how Glee would possibly be considered a comedy (she's probably seen about half of its episodes). I tried to explain to her that if Glee had gone in as a drama that it would have had absolutely no chance, and that putting Glee and, for example, Mad Men on the same playing field would be absolutely ridiculous. Maybe you could help better explain why Glee is a comedy, and why it's not a drama? — Alex

Ask Matt: Closer, True Blood, Eureka, Mad Men, Terriers and More

J.K. Simmons and Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

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

Question: I absolutely love The Closer! It's one of my favorite shows and I am always so eager to watch that I usually don't even wait for my DVR to get ahead enough to allow me to skip commercials. This season started off with a bang and I've loved it, but I'm a little concerned. What will happen if Brenda does become chief? On one hand, as a woman, I think it would be great for the character to be a female Chief of Police in Los Angeles. On the other hand, I am afraid for what that would mean for her position as a "closer." If she gets some distance from the cases, how can she possibly get all of those confessions that have the audience on the edge of their seats? Plus, I have not enjoyed the rather jerk-like qualities this whole process has brought out in Pope. I know he's got his heart set on being chief, but it seems a little uncharacteristic for him to be such a jerk now when he has not gone completely into that territory before. Please tell me that whatever is in the works is going to maintain the same quality of scripts and keep Brenda right in the middle of the action! Do you have any insight into the rest of the season or what impact this whole development would have for the future of the show? — Beth

Matt Roush: Now that's a true sign of devotion, watching a show in real time, not DVR time. I'm very fond of The Closer as well.... read more
