Like big, historical drama? Period costumes; a feisty time-traveling woman and lots of beautiful scenery? Then "Outlander," a new series based on the book series that's set to air this summer on Starz, is right for you. Just check out this trailer and enjoy the tartan.
The show is set to air summer 2014
Plus, the first scene of the new season is screened
Hey Clone Club, the first second-season scene of "Orphan Black" was shown at press tour, and I think it's safe to say that the pressure is not letting up on Sarah and the rest of the clones as their story continues. First, a recap of the scene, then we'll get into what Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris and co-creator Graeme Manson had to say (and after press tour, I'll be writing up my own one-on-one interviews with Manson and Gavaris, which hint at some big picture shifts ahead). Hold on to your hats. It's gonna be a bumpy ride when the show returns Sat. April 19 at 9:00 p.m. on BBC America.
One controversial scene won't be cut
Fans of the beloved "Outlander" historical novels may be anxiously awaiting the new Starz series of the same name, or they may just be anxious. With fans having their own ideas about what Claire and Jamie should look and act like, a TV show runs the risk of disappointing. Fortunately, all those involved who came out for the "Outlander" panel at press tour made it clear they intended to stay true to the spirit of the books, despite some minor changes.
If the Puppy Bowl is too cute for you, consider the Fish Bowl

The win offers a chance for one designer to get to 'the next level'
So, spoiler alert -- I spoke to the winner of "Project Runway All Stars," and I can only say so much before I have to reveal the gender, so let's just say don't click to the story if you don't want to know.
Doing it in nature takes a nasty turn
You know, nature may be beautiful, but it's probably best not experienced naked (sorry, "Naked and Afraid"). In this clip from an all-new episode of "Sex Sent Me to the ER" (airing Sat. Jan. 11 at 10:00 p.m. on TLC), we meet Erik and Salina, a young couple who decide to climb a tree and get it on on a branch. Given that the title of this show is "Sex Sent Me to the ER," you can guess this does not end well.
The 'Daily Show' replacement talks about his new, unnamed show
When John Oliver sat down for his HBO panel at press tour, he probably wasn't expecting to spend so much time talking about Sarah Palin. But when one journalist asked him if he might want to stop by to say hello to the former Governor of Alaska, the stand-up comedian couldn't resist.
Jim Parsons talks about how coming out to the public was 'no big deal'
It's taken decades, but Ryan Murphy has finally persevered in bring the Tony award-winning play "The Normal Heart" to the small screen. The movie will air on HBO this May, and during press tour Murphy assured the audience that he's only changed the source material so much. "I think it's similar to the play, and I actively pursued [the rights to] the play. It was a play I loved, even when I was in college."
Warning: This clip from the season finale may make you feel sick
With the season finale of "Untold Stories of the ER" (Fri. Jan. 10 at 9:00 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health) upon us, we had to wrap things up with a memorable clip. In this exclusive, a woman and her husband head to the ER about the nasty, infected wound in the woman's arm. But we won't spoil it for you. It's just too delightful.
Gunn was 'blown away' by Macklemore's fashion sense
If you can't get enough of mentor Tim Gunn on "Project Runway" (and really, who can?), Lifetime is launching "Under the Gunn," a design competition show in which Gunn mentors three "Project Runway" winners as they mentor a bunch of competing designers. Sound complicated? Gunn says "multi-layered," so there.
