In CBS’s new series BATTLE CREEK, premiering Sunday, March 1 at 10 PM, the police department of the title Michigan town receives a boost in the form of newly-transferred FBI Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel). Almost everyone is thrilled by this – except for Milt’s new partner, Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters), who thinks Milt’s Boy Scout attitude is an act, or if it’s not, that Milt is crazy. Riding herd on this mismatched pair is Commander Guziewicz, the station chief portrayed by Janet McTeer. McTeer, originally from Newcastle, England, has been nominated for two Oscars (for her lead …Read On »

On NBC’s CHICAGO FIRE, currently running Wednesdays at 10 PM and just picked up for a second season, Jesse Spencer plays Windy City firefighter Matthew Casey. Casey has a lot going on at all times, what with a romantic quadrangle going on, his desire for revenge against a local criminal organization and of course literally putting out fires. Viewers of CHICAGO FIRE and Spencer’s previous U.S. series, HOUSE, where he played Dr. Robert Chase for eight years, would never know the actor hails from Australia. He does a terrific American accent when portraying American characters, but when talking about his …Read On »

Hayden Panettiere stars in NASHVILLE | (c) 2013 ABC/Jon Lemay

In ABC’s NASHVILLE, which airs Wednesday nights at 10 PM, up-and-coming crossover country music star Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere, is locked into a rivalry with more traditional and established country icon Rayna Jaymes, played by Connie Britton. Both actresses were nominated for Golden Globes for their work on the Callie Khouri-created series, still in its first season. Juliette represents something of a departure for Panettiere. Although the New York-born actress has been a thespian since her early childhood and has also cut an album as a singer/composer, she is usually known for playing kindly and selfless characters – …Read On »

HOUSE ends its eight-year run tonight with a two-hour finale beginning at 8 PM on Fox. We caught up very briefly with Robert Sean Leonard, who has played Dr. James Wilson, exasperated best friend of Hugh Laurie’s difficult-to-get-along-with Dr. Gregory House, for the entire run, and got his views of two topics – his love of theatre and his dislike of the term “bromance,” especially as applied to Wilson and House. ASSIGNMENT X: You’ve been on Broadway twelve times so far. Do you have a preference for doing series television or theatrical film or stage? ROBERT SEAN LEONARD: Yes. It’s …Read On »

Fox has just renewed BONES for an eighth season. The series, now on Monday nights at 8 PM, was developed by Hart Hanson from Kathy Reichs’ novels about a forensic anthropologist who uses her skills to solve homicide cases. On the show, Dr. Temperance Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel, teamed up with FBI agent Seeley Booth, played by David Boreanaz, to find and catch murderers. Over time, the partnership became a will-they/won’t-they romantic relationship, which became a yes-they-do when Brennan became pregnant by Booth at the end of last season. In the episode “The Prisoner in the Pipe,” their daughter …Read On »

Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Michael Grant Terry Writer: Stephen Nathan Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: November 3, 2011 Season 7 has a nice sturdy ring to it. Relatively few TV shows last this long. BONES enters this hallowed territory with the charm of its banter and character dynamics very much intact. The mystery of the week winds up feeling more peripheral than usual, but that’s not why most viewers tune in to BONES in the first place. Pleasingly little has changed in the dynamics between …Read On »

With HOUSE returning for Season 8 with a leaner cast this fall, and a long negotiation process that delayed the announcement it would be returning, the question mark of whether the show will return for a Season 9 was in the air at today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association session for Fox. Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly says he still has no word if this will be the show’s final season. “I can’t confirm it’s the last season,” says Reilly. “Hugh [Laurie] is mulling it. The producers are. This is the original team of creators who have been there from …Read On »

At today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association press tour, Fox’s Entertainment President Kevin Reilly spoke about how proud he was with their Thursday night staple BONES and would love to see it continue well into Season 8 and beyond. “The producers and I would like to keep it going,” says Reilly. “And FINDER [its spin-off] is off to a great start. I see those shows as compatible and feeding off each other. I’m pretty darn happy with BONES on Thursday night. As CSI [on CBS] was fading, BONES is looking as resilient as ever. It’s a really valuable show to …Read On »
