Big Brother's alternate reality TV week has come to an end, and the Rewind certainly panned out better for some houseguests than others. Had the Houseguests not pushed the button, Victoria likely would have gone home last week and who knows what would have happened from there? But the button was pushed.
The name of the DC Comics supervillain Captain Boomerang may seem pretty silly, but it doesn't sound like audiences will be laughing when they see him invade Starling City in the upcoming season of Arrow. New reports have confirmed not only the character will be showing up in Season 3, but also who will be playing him.
In Edlund’s comics, which began back in the late 1980s, The Tick escaped from a mental institution outside The City, with no memory of his life before turning into the bulked-up hero. His behavior was more erratic and irreverent, making him seem more like an addled teenager than an awe-inspired child, as he was presented in Fox’s live action show.
We spent months knowing Hayley Atwell as the only actor officially on-board for the upcoming series Agent Carter, but slowly that has started to change. In recent weeks it's been revealed that Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj have come aboard to play SSR Agent Jack Thompson and Agent Daniel Sousa, respectively, but now we have news that another character from the established Marvel Cinematic Universe will be regularly popping up in the show. Kind of.
Tragedy befell production of TNT’s sci-fi drama Falling Skies on Monday night, as a security guard was killed near the set in a most horrible and unpredictable manner. The Season 5 production was shut down today so that the proper authorities could handle the situation.
As we reported, the Big Brother live feeds went dark yesterday, after which we expected one of the nominated houseguests to be evicted for tonight's pre-taped episode. The feeds have been down all day today, but they came back up for a few minutes, and there were only four Houseguests
It looks like NBC's looking to turn another movie into a TV show, as a TV adaptation of the 90s comedy Problem Child is in the works. So, are they going the Parenthood route, in turning the comedy into an hour-long series that's much more of a drama? Or are they taking the About a Boy avenue, in aiming for humor with a half-hour format? As it happens, it's the latter.
Tightrope walker Nik Wallenda is ready for another daredevil challenge. He’s been planning a crazy tightrope stunt in Chicago since the spring, and on Tuesday, the Discovery Channel announced that Wallenda will be able to walk untethered above the Chicago River this winter. The walk will air live on The Discovery Channel this November.
Well, one thing is clear, Valerie Cherish does a terrible Al Pacino impersonation. The latest teaser for The Comeback has Lisa Kudrow's TV Star character spontaneously quoting The Godfather, only she doesn't seem to recall what movie the line is from. And her Pacino impression isn't very good. But that's kind of what we love about Valerie. Her kind of funny is always just a little bit off.
Bill Hader is finally making himself a known entity in Hollywood, but for years he ruled the Saturday Night Live stage in New York. The former Not Ready For Primetime player popped up on Seth Meyers’ Late Night this week, and it wouldn’t be a true SNL reunion without a little Stefon talk. You can hear more about the origins of the character, as well as some funny behind-the-scenes stories, below.
The last couple of weeks have been a PR nightmare for the NFL, following the lengthy spotlight on player Ray Rice after a tape was released showing aggravated assault against his now-wife.

Instead of quieting things down, pulling Rihanna from the opening sequence stirred the pot, and now the “We Found Love” singer is speaking out about her treatment by the NFL.
In this excellent preview, viewers are ushered into Gotham’s world in the most immersive way possible, at least through a video clip. It helps if you splash water on your face while you’re watching. Trust me. I'm Batman.
While most networks are just now giving new projects pilot commitments, Netflix is not nearly as restricted as the networks and just signed on for two seasons of a brand new project this morning. On Tuesday, Netflix signed on with Judd Apatow and Legendary Pictures for Love, a brand new romantic comedy that will offer an “honest take” on 21st century relationships.
Humorously, from a fan perspective, it also gives us a chance to make a knee-jerk judgment of how coordinated or uncoordinated a competitor might be. So, for example, it’s pretty clear from just this intro that Michael Waltrip isn’t exactly Justin Timberlake.
Shout Factory is giving the classic sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati its due by restoring much of the series' classic music for its upcoming DVD release. Maybe you and me were never meant to be, but a series that takes place inside of a radio station is meant to be experienced with its original music intact.
