It may sound like the next Lost or Terra Nova, but the makers of NBC's new epic drama Revolution promise that it will actually reward viewers who follow the intricate mysteries of a world without electricity where a rogue militia rules the land.
NBC at TCAs: All the latest news
Jacob Artist, Dean Geyer
Finchel fans may not be happy with this news: Dean Geyer has been cast as a potential love interest for Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) on Glee, Fox announced Monday.
Jacob Artist has also joined the cast as Puck's younger half-brother.
In the new season, Rachel heads to New York to attend New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts, where she meets Brody Weston (Geyer), a handsome upperclassman who shows an interest in her. Geyer's credits include a stint on the Australian soap Neighbours, Australian Idol and a guest-starring role on Terra Nova.
There aren't enough words. Except in the world of Aaron Sorkin, where there are always enough, maybe too many, as the Emmy- and Oscar-winning maestro of the hyper-verbal aria (The West Wing, Sports Night, The Social Network) aims his sights back on TV with the exhilarating, exasperating and often sensationally entertaining The Newsroom. (It premieres Sunday at 10/9c following summer hit True Blood.)
Kat Dennings, Simon Cowell
The 2011-2012 TV season ended with a whimper, as all five broadcast networks posted year-to-year drops in viewership during May sweeps. But the season as a whole wasn't too bad: Sure, some big swings (Pan Am, Terra Nova) missed, but a solid 15 freshman shows (out of 45) were renewed. Here's a roundup of this year's winners and losers.

Mary McCormack, Stephen Lang
On last week's In Plain Sight, Mary (Mary McCormack) welcomed her fugitive father, James (Terra Nova's Stephen Lang), with open handcuffs rather than open arms. And based on this exclusive sneak peek from Friday's episode (10/9c on USA), things between the two aren't going to get warm and fuzzy anytime soon — even when they have to work together.

Your most beloved program is on the bubble — so you mass-mail trinkets to the network, sign an online petition and add a plea to your Twitter avatar. But are network execs really paying attention?
The answer is yes — but that doesn't mean they've been swayed. "I love the fans and I don't begrudge them," says one network executive. "At least it gives us some evidence that there's a ...
