HBO has run out of Luck. On Wednesday, the pay cable network, along with executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann, announced an abrupt end to the Dustin Hoffman-starring drama, following news that three horses had died during production.
Whether it was the threat of continued negative press, or that no one could guarantee another horse would not perish during the run of the series, the surprising and quick decision to pull the plug has caused many in the media to theorize as to why.
HBO cancels Luck after three horses die during production
When a third horse died Tuesday during filming for the second episode of the second season, HBO quickly announced that all use of horses on the show would be suspended indefinitely. (Two other horses died last year during the filming of the first season.) But...

Question: I've been watching Once Upon A Time from the beginning, and I thought by now, we'd start to see some real movement towards the present-day fairy-tale folks realizing that something was amiss. But it seems to be dragging and dragging, and while the "fairy tale" portions are fun to watch, there's nothing there that gives one hope that finally, someone other than Henry knows something's amiss. It's getting boring. Any tidbits as to when that ...
Homeland and Modern Family topped Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, winning series awards, while The Artist solidified its status as Oscar front-runner with three wins.
Check out all the Golden Globes fashion hits and misses
Homeland won two of its three awards: best drama series and TV drama actress for Claire Danes. The actress is now a perfect 3-for-3 at the Globes. Her co-star Damian Lewis lost drama actor to Kelsey Grammer (Boss). It was a big ceremony for Showtime, as Episodes' Matt LeBlanc scored his ...
It's a good news, bad news day at HBO: The cable channel has renewed freshman series Enlightened, but opted to cancel Sunday night comedies Hung, How to Make it in America, and Bored to Death.

Oh, Golden Globes. You never fail to amuse and bemuse us with your quirky, awesome and weird nominations. After coming up empty with the Screen Actors Guild, Homeland landed three nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and was just one of the many new shows that reaped nods. And with so many shiny new toys to play with, the HFPA once again forgot about Breaking Bad. But those weren't the only things that caught our attention Thursday.
Claire Danes, Kelsey Grammer
New blood was the toast of the Golden Globe Awards nominations Thursday as Homeland, American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, The Killing, Boss, Revenge, Episodes, Enlightened and New Girl all scored nods.
A day after getting shut out of the Screen Actors Guild nominations, Homeland nabbed ...
On the 12th day of December, with only 12 days (gulp) until Christmas Eve, here's a dozen topics of interest — or possibly disinterest — regarding today's unusually busy, for mid-December, TV lineup.
Mother's Day: On CBS's biggest Monday hit, Two and a Half Men (9/8c), Mimi Rogers drops by the Malibu manse as Walden's mom. Alan, naturally, is smitten (ewwww), but in the opposite-of-nurturing tradition of mothers ...
Last Man Standing, Homeland, The X Factor
So many new shows, so little time! With a handful of fall TV casualties already — RIP Charlie's Angels, Playboy Club, Free Agents, How to Be a Gentleman and H8R (and it's not looking too good for Prime Suspect or Man Up either) — it's time to assess what's worth keeping on your DVR, and what you can safely skip.
For now, we're high on American Horror Story, a spooky mash-up unlike anything else on TV, and Homeland, a twisty thriller anchored by two riveting performances. We're cautiously optimistic about Suburgatory, for those who miss Gilmore Girls, but then there are the shows we're thisclose to ditching...

Enlightened, Laura Dern
HBO has a way of attracting big-time film stars to the small screen. With the Monday night premiere of Enlightened, the network's done it again with Laura Dern, who plays an executive who has had a "nervous breakthrough." We want to know what you thought of this show — and what you think of every new series this season.
They rarely make TV-movies like Lifetime's Five (Monday, 9/8c) anymore, and I really wish they would. A sensitively told issue-of-the-week anthology in the classic life-affirming tear-jerker tradition, the high-profile talent is on both sides of the camera in these intertwined vignettes dealing with breast cancer. Though the subject matter is wrenching, the tone here is more about emotional uplift, emphasizing the importance of bringing loved ones along for the fight.
