"PHOTO PREVIEW: Summer comes to an end in Suburgatory's season 2 premiere"

When Suburgatory finally returns to ABC later this month, the summer has turned into fall for Chatswin just as it has for the viewers. This means Tessa (Jane Levy) is on the train back to George (Jeremy Sisto) after spending the summer in New York City, dancing at clubs and finding her mother's music. When she returns, will she have the air of a more mature girl who can no longer relate to her "small town" friends? ... [MORE]

"Fall 2012 TV Preview: ABC’s Nashville"

Though there will undoubtedly be ample parallels drawn to Country Strong-- or Smash, just set in the country world-- if you have to compare Nashville to something, it should be "The Spoiler," a novel by Annalena McAffee.

But just as quickly, things go bad, as there is no venting when one firefighter climbs into the attic through a window and is basically engulfed in a Backdraft style wave of fire. His death should be felt by the whole house, but it really only weighs heavily on the chests of his two best buddies, and the guys on opposite ends of him with that rescue. And thus enters the main tension of Chicago Fire's pilot... [MORE
