CBS Goes ‘Under the Dome’ With Stephen King in Summer 2013

In a rare move that sees major broadcast network CBS taking on a show originally developed for pay-cabler Showtime, CBS has announced that it will take to series an adaptation of esteemed horror author Stephen King's novel 'Under the Dome.' The project is to be written by 'LOST's' Brian K. Vaughn, but will it bring in the post-apocalyptic buzz that 'The Walking Dead' and 'Revolution' have managed to pull in? And will it continue beyond the initial order?

The good Doctor could certainly not have achieved such notoriety without his legions of dedicated fans, one of whom in Australia has taken it on himself to perfectly re-create the interior of the Doctor's famous box in his home! Are you ready to step inside the real TARDIS?

The CW Cancels ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’…For Real, This Time

A few weeks ago, a number of outlets jumped the gun (or scalpel) when rumors broke that The CW had decided to pull the plug on its plucky freshman medical drama 'Emily Owens, M.D.,' though at the time it proved not to be true.  Sadly, even rumors may come to pass, as the the network has now officially confirmed the Mamie Gummer-starring series' cancellation.  So with 'Emily Owens' officially dead on the table, what plans are in place for the remaining episodes of the series?

‘Two and a Half Men’ Update: Angus T. Jones Not Quitting

As much as we'd love for the fallout from Angus T. Jones' religious rant against 'Two and Half Men' to continue on indefinitely, sooner or later an impass would have to be reached.  Charlie Sheen can continue commenting on his former cast-mate's outburst, but given Jones' apology yesterday, there aren't likely to be many further developments.  To that end, the actor is believed to stay at his 'Two and a Half Men' job for the moment, but will he leave at the end of the season?

‘Waterworld’ TV Series for Syfy? Let’s Hope So

Though it may seem like a distant memory, a forgotten relic of the 1990s and laughable portent of big-budget studio epics gone awry, few remember that Kevin Costner's post-apocalyptic 'Waterworld' was considered ambitious in its time. Nearly 20 years later, could it be time for a return to 'Waterworld'? New reports suggest that Syfy could look to the forgotten franchise for a new TV series, or even feature film, but could the prospect ever find dry land?

‘Key & Peele’ Renewed for a Third Season

Sketch comedy needs a kick in the rear every couple years, and it's been too long since Dave Chappelle flamed out when fame and fortune made 'The Chappelle Show' his cross to bare.
