Not about the subject matter — the show came with high critical acclaim, and the success of The Walking Dead proved that audiences could stomach undead antics.

But she will now depart the FX drama after striking a deal with Homeland producer Fox 21 to return for Homeland's fourth season and its fifth, pending an order from Showtime. Stiehm's deal also includes a development component.
When Adam F. Goldberg created his 1980s-set ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, he knew he needed to include a catchy title tune. "The '80s was the Golden Age of theme songs," he says. "From Golden Girls to The Facts of Life to Silver Spoons, people sometimes remember the theme songs more than they remember the show."
Goldberg co-wrote the theme song for his last comedy, Fox's short-lived Breaking In. This time, he decided to contact his favorite band...

Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true?

After last week's big reveal on FX's The Bridge -- in which viewers learned the killer was none other than "Kenneth Hastings" (a.k.a. David Tate), the co-worker who's been romancing the wife of Det.
