RuPaul promises 'most outrageous' cast to date
The two-night miniseries doesn't reach 'Bible' levels
While the adventures of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow kept Americans on the edge of their seats in the 1930s, 21st century television viewers weren't quite as captivated by "Bonnie & Clyde." While the first night of the two-part miniseries drew in a healthy 9.8 million total viewers, that number was below History's "Hatfields & McCoys" (13.1 million) and "The Bible" (14.3 million). Still, "Bonnie & Clyde"'s numbers were good enough to make it cable's best miniseries opening in total viewers since 2006's "Broken Trail."
The History series is set to return this February
Fans can open up a variety of tantalizing photos and clips
Leave it to "Sherlock" to release a trailer loaded with twisty reveals that require just a bit of work from loyal viewers. BBC One has released an interactive trailer for the show (which returns to the air Jan. 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS in the U.S.). Click on the text that pops up intermittently throughout the trailer and see additional photos, additional footage, and even a hint as to how Sherlock may have survived that fall after all (think diagrams).
Did Phaedra forgive Apollo too easily?
Boy, life is never boring in Atlanta, is it? Porsha's suffering from the pretty faints, Cynthia and her ex Leon are debating whether or not to lie to their daughter Noelle about sex or just stick her in a cage until she turns 30, and Kandi's mother is throwing punches in a wedding parlor. That's not even getting to Kenya sobbing in a restaurant.
Tinkerbell struggles to find her confidence
This week's episode of "Once Upon A Time" isn't exactly twisty-turvy. We know Henry (well, Pan in Henry's body) is going to put some nefarious plan into action, and everyone will fall for it because their defenses are down, and the pieces will be put in place for a bang-up midseason finale next week. Still, there are a few surprises, like the appearance of a really cheesy-looking Medusa. The scope of the show is getting a little broad, in that Greek mythology (Pandora's box and Medusa), Arthurian legend and Mary Shelley's favorite monster all fall under the fairytale banner. But I guess as long as we don't see ewoks, hobbits or the cast of "Glee" in any future episodes, I guess it's all fine.
This episode is all about hot vampires in small spaces
The theme for tonight's episode of "The Vampire Diaries" seems to be hot vampires trapped in small spaces. I'm not kidding, either. First, we have to deal with Damon's entrapment by the truly loathsome Wes. It turns out Wes comes from a long line of sadists, I mean, scientists who love poking and prodding vampires to see how they tick. And, as we know, Damon has been through this before.
Stephen Moyer brings starchy attitude to Captain von Trapp
There are so, so many things about "The Sound of Music Live!" that I can't get excited about. Commercials would be one of them, as you don't tend to get those on DVDs or, thank God, in Broadway plays (at least, not yet). I also fear anything that had an exclamation point in the title unless it's a parody. Then, there's Carrie Underwood, who has the voice of an angel but zippo acting experience. Well, zippo if you don't count small roles in "How I Met Your Mother" and "Soul Surfer," which I don't.
We're betting this test isn't covered by insurance
Sometimes emergency rooms are very serious places. But sometimes, a doctor does something really, really unexpected that's probably not ethical at all. But it's funny! And a little violent! In this exclusive clip from "Untold Stories of the ER" (airing Fri. Dec. 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit & Health), doctor Mike Abernethy tries a little test on a convict that undoubtedly isn't covered by insurance. Bet it hurts!
It's the holiday spirit run amok on the TLC show
