More than ever we're looking forward to 'Homeland' season 4 as it will be a reboot of sorts for the series, with the events of season 3 finale "The Star" teasing new settings and crises to come beyond Nicholas Brody. Now, following the additions of Corey Stoll and Laila Robins, 'Homeland' season 4 has gone even further to add 'Smash''s Raza Jaffrey and 'Roseanne' alum and 'Caddyshack' star Michael O'Keefe.
Just when we thought Showtime's 'Master of Sex' season 2 had scored its most impressive casting to date in comedian Sarah Silverman, the buzzworthy breakout period drama has added three more names to an already-stuffed roster. Joining Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan for the second coming of 'Masters of Sex' will be 'Smash' star Christian Borle, 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' favorite Rene Auberjoinois, and 'Flash Forward' star Courtney B. Vance.
'How I Met Your Mother' may or may not have introduced a major curveball into its narrative with this past week's episode "Vesuvius," but its sequel spinoff series 'How I Met Your Dad' is just getting warmed up.

As controversial as NBC's 'Smash' may have been, many were sad to see the series close out its two year run in recent weeks, even as ousted creator Theresa Beck continued to blast the series. Thankfully, all is not lost as breakout star Megan Hilty will be right back on NBC this fall joining 'Smash' guest star Sean Hayes in new sitcom 'Sean Saves the World.'
And lo, the final curtain has fallen on NBC's 'Smash,' which aired its season 2 (and ultimately series) finale this past Sunday night while much of the world busied itself reveling in 'Arrested Development' marathons.

Even the most casual of 'Smash' viewers knows that what started as a promising Broadway musical drama quickly devolved into the target of critical angst, leading to a complete creative shakeup in season 2 and the replacement of show-runner Theresa Rebeck with 'Gossip Girl' helmer Josh Safran. Now, as the series lies on the verge of cancellation, Rebeck had some rather harsh words for the direction 'Smash' has taken in season 2, and her own involvement in the debacle.
No one was exactly surprised when NBC's controversial Broadway drama 'Smash' made the leap to Saturday nights, effectively shelving the series as its second season continued to tank in the ratings. Now, however, it seems NBC has granted the upcoming 'Smash' season 2 finale a spotlight on Sunday night, but will it prove to be the series finale after all?
It was of very little surprise that 'Smash' season 2, for all its creative changes and efforts to address criticisms of the first season, was recently relegated to NBC Saturdays, presumably to air its final episodes and accept a quiet cancellation. Much of NBC's midseason lineup has continued to flounder, but what do the 'Smash' producers themselves have to say of the change? Will the upcoming finale prove to be the series-ender after all?
Despite its surprise nomination for the 2013 Golden Globes last night, 'Smash' didn't manage to take home the gold for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical.
