If you haven't watched the episode yet, you may want to before reading this. It's not that last night's "Project Runway" was all that exciting (in fact, it was a little dull), but that the elimination was actually shocking. Thus, I proceed, but I'm starting with spoilers. Consider yourself warned.
It's time for the textile challenge!
Take in the voodoo goodness
We'll be seeing this at the start of every episode soon enough, but there's something special about the first time, isn't thee? The main titles for "American Horror Story: Coven" have been released, and they're just as creepy and unsettling as you'd expect.
The fatality in the season premiere may not be the one you expect
The storm that hit Grey Sloan Memorial (sorry, but it will always be Seattle Grace to me) at the end of last season was a doozy, and of course we had a nail-biter of a cliffhanger. Dr. Webber decided to go into the basement to check on the status of the generator and ended up getting electrocuted. This officially makes working for this hospital only slightly less dangerous than working on an Alaskan crab boat.
Don't expect a family friendly take on angels
"Touched by an Angel" with a dark twist? Not exactly. The Anne Rice novel "Angel Time" has been snapped up by CBS as the basis for a new series with Joe Carnahan ("The A-Team," "The Blacklist" and Sarah Timberman ("Masters of Sex") signed on as executive producers. Carnahan will direct the pilot if it's ordered, while Liz Garcia and Joshua Harto ("Memphis Beat") wrote the script. Given the talent and the book involved, this isn't likely to be family-friendly viewing, even though Rice wrote the book during her ten-year return to the Catholic belief system of her youth (she renounced her faith again in 2010).
The actor says to expect things to get 'really tough and tragic'
When you meet Kevin McKidd, what's most startling (at least it is if you're a "Grey's Anatomy" fan) is the accent. Born in Scotland, McKidd's rich, rolling brogue sounds nothing like Owen, the lovelorn surgeon he plays on the show (which has a two-hour season premiere tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC). Though the actor has played many other characters memorably (fans will remember him from "Rome" and "Trainspotting"), after five seasons on the ABC show he's probably best known as Owen -- and that's just fine with him. During press tour I talked to McKidd about what's next for Owen and Christina (if anything after their split), if Owen will ever get out of denial about wanting to be a daddy, and whether or not he's really a frustrated rock star.
The primetime soap lathers up with new twists
"Nashville"'s back, and even though the show has had ample times to rest and reboot, it returns with some of the same problems it had last season. Cheesy plot twists? They spring up like stubborn kudzu, weighed down with some redundant flashbacks (Deacon was a drunk! We know!). But who cares? We find out what happened to Rayna and Deacon! That's the important part, isn't it?
Watch: Creepy voodoo teasers from 'American Horror Story: Coven'
The teasers just keep coming from "American Horror Story: Coven," and there's nothing we can do to stop them. Did you remember the show comes back on Oct. 9? At 10:00 p.m. ET? On FX? Good. Now, let's watch some creepy stuff.
What is clear from these two new teasers as well as the awesomely disturbing new poster is that this season isn't just about witchcraft -- it's also about voodoo, which is a mash-up I can definitely live with. What do you think?
Being an endurance racer isn't all fun and games
On Esquire Network's "Boundless (premiering Sept. 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET), best friends Simon and Turbo compete in an intense 155-mile, seven-day stage race, which involves camping and running through the volcanic ruggedness of the Icelandic Highlands. It also involves using the bathroom outdoors. Apparently, this is not so fun.
Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris and Dylan Bruce return
We knew it was going to happen after a knockout first season, but it's still a cause to rejoice -- start of production on the second season of 'Orphan Black' was announced today. Everybody's back, too (well, not the people who got killed off last season, but still). Tatiana Maslany returns in the lead role of Sarah – an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after discovering she is a clone. Reprising their roles are Jordan Gavaris as the lovable Felix, Dylan Bruce as ex-army officer Paul, and Maria Doyle Kennedy as Mrs. S. The series is shooting on location and in studio in Toronto through February 2014.
Sometimes being a little person is not much fun
Just in case you were thinking being a little person was only a hassle when you need to get the peanut butter on the top shelf, this might be the right clip for you to watch. On this week's episode of "Little Couple" (Tues. Sept. 24 at 10:00 p.m. ET on TLC) Will has to undergo surgery, and poor Jen and Bill can't do much more than sit on the sidelines. Being a parent is hard; being the parent to a little person is that much harder.
In this clip, Jen and Bill deal with what it's like to feel powerless to help the little guy who's just getting to know them. No one will tell if you tear up a little.
