Today in show business news: Emma Roberts has joined the Ryan Murphy family, CBS hires a Bad Teacher, and a glimpse of the next Vince Vaughn movie.
ABC has made the pilot episode of its new country music soap Nashville available online and boy howdy, it's a daggum blast! Well, that might be a little overly effusive, but it is a mostly entertaining, well-acted hour full of fading glory and rising bitchery.
Despite all the grand lead-up to the making of Lincoln — Tony Kushner's much whispered about script, long delays partly having to do with Liam Neeson climbing aboard and then leaving to be an action star — the promotional material so far is pretty underwhelming. And, if we're honest, a little silly.
It's scary, but I'm just going to come out and say it: I have an NCIS problem and it is only escalating.
Disney has released its first teaser trailer for next year's big (and we mean big) movie adaptation of the beloved old series The Lone Ranger, and for the most part it looks like a pretty straightforward summer action yarn. But there's trouble lurking around its edges.
Today in celebrity gossip: An old couple got hot and heavy at a New York club, tempers flare at American Idol, and Amanda Bynes really does not like Lindsay Lohan.
The once most-troubled network is on an amazing rebound. They're topping the ratings and ordering full seasons of new shows. It's all very exciting. Elsewhere in showbiz news, Meryl Streep is being lured for an ill-advised project and Drea De Matteo is going back to work.
Every network TV season includes a best show you're not watching — last spring it was the sturdy but forgotten Prime Suspect, and this season it just might be The Mob Doctor, a Fox drama that's struggling and looks to soon be sleeping with the fishes. (No more mob jokes, I promise.)
Cheers, that bar we all know and love—those of us old enough to have experienced it on the teevee, and those of us young enough to consider it nostalgic now that we're 21—has turned 30. In honor of this anniversary, we've taken a look at a few of our other favorite TV bars in hopes of learning more about, of course, ourselves.
Last night was the most intense night of television so far this season—not necessarily because of the nature of the content, but because there was simply so much of it. Here's how we strategized for the big Sunday night.
Today in show business news: Miley Cyrus might be receiving a job offer she should refuse on principle, Spider-Man will swing again, and Greg Kinnear heads back to TV.
Today we review two new movies, the sci-fi actioner Looper and the college a cappella comedy Pitch Perfect
A trailer for an upcoming family drama/horror/thriller has us pretty darn excited. Elsewhere in showbiz news: Honey Boo Boo ain't goin' anywhere, Christopher Guest assembles his own version of the Avengers, and Justin Timberlake stretches his acting muscle some more.
CBS debuted its patently ludicrous new show Vegas last night, a 1960s-set sorta police drama starring Dennis Quaid as a rancher turned semi-reluctant sheriff and Michael Chiklis as a new mobster in town.
What irked us so much about Ben and Kate wasn't so much Ben and Kate as a standalone show, per se, but rather the bigger whole that it represents. Meaning, boy oh boy are we getting sick of these single-camera comedies about quirky people doin' quirky things.

The Emmys have always been a pretty conservative awards ceremony, with things rarely getting too radical. Last night's show was no different, as cozy, comfy crowd-pleaser Modern Family won three of the five big comedy awards (plus Best Direction) and Two and a Half Men's boring old Jon Cryer took Best Actor.
The college dropout may have more than one intimate encounter caught on video. Elsewhere in today's celebrity gossip: Natalie Portman has a dramatic new look, Anjelica Huston is turning her house into a club, and Katie Holmes reconnects with an old friend from Capeside.
