Keck's Exclusives First Look: A Shark Takes on a Diva

April Bowlby, Barbara Corcoran

Popular Shark Tank panelist Barbara Corcoran can invest in and reject companies with ease, but how does she fare in her first acting role, playing herself on the July 7 episode of Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva? "I spent five to six hours memorizing my script," she says, "and I still flubbed my lines."

TV's Hits and Misses

Kerry Washington

TV executives must have been happy to put a fork in the 2012-13 season. Ratings dropped across the board for broadcast networks due to fading reality franchises and the failure to launch any major new scripted hits. Cable also slumped, with audience levels flat compared with the previous season. And with the number of viewers who time-shift growing, the path to success is more treacherous than ever. Here are the shows that navigated the bumps — and the ones that became ratings road kill.

The Weekend Playlist: Doctor Who and Other Finales, Affleck Joins SNL "5-Timer" Club

Matt Smith

Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).

First Look: Phineas and Ferb's Dr. Doofenshmirtz Pitches ABC's Shark Tank

Dr. Doofenshmirtz from "Phineas & Ferb" guest stars on "Shark Tank."

The Sharks have never met an inventor like this. Phineas and Ferb's bumbling villain Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz will appear next month on the season finale of ABC's Shark Tank, offering the show's tycoons a chance to invest in his latest evil invention.

Fans of the animated Disney Channel hit Phineas and Ferb know, of course, that Dr. Doofenshmirtz's nefarious "inator" creations, generally inspired by his desire to control the greater "tri-state area," usually wind up self-destructing. read more

Ask Matt: Zero's Epic Fail, CSI Split, Americans, Following, Southland

Zero Hour

Question: Zero Hour canceled. OK. I get it. The ratings were too low in that time slot. But then I don't get it. This was, what, a planned 10-episode season? Three down, seven to go. It was always planned to be a mid-season short-run program. Aren't all the episodes already filmed and ready for broadcast? So the ratings are so low that they are willing to call it a complete loss? And execs think that reruns will generate more revenue in that same slot against the same competition? If you are losing the time slot ratings already, how does airing reruns change that result? And why not move shows like this to Saturday? They have already given up on Saturday programming as it is. At least let seasons like this run their course. — Joe
