Showtime's “The Affair” premieres Oct. 19 — watch the trailer
The drama delving into an extramarital affair starring “The Wire’s” Dominic West, Joshua Jackson, Maura Tierney and Ruth Wilson is a show "more about marriage,” says writer Sarah Treem. "The term affair will prove somewhat ironic if you keep watching the show."

Norman Weiss has been doing TV Tattle since the week "Freaks and Geeks" was canceled. He is a Hollywood outsider who was born and raised in Hollywood. "American Idol" and "Dancing with the Stars" are broadcast 2 blocks from his high school.
