Earlier this week, The Young and the Restless invited TV Insider to the set of the top-rated CBS soap for interviews over coffee and bagels at Crimson Lights. We took the opportunity to chat up executive producer/head writer Mal Young on some recent developments in Genoa City.
Read on to get the scoop!Christel Khalil Downgrades to Recurring Status on 'Young and the Restless'
But what will happen to Lane (aka Lily and Cane)?
You’re introducing a few family, the Rosales clan, one by one instead of all at once.
Mal Young: It can scare people off if you do that. We got to know Arturo (Jason Canela) first. Then, we brought on his brother Rey (Jordi Vilasuso), who’s investigating the case of J.T.’s (Thad Luckinbill) disappearance. They all come in with individual stories, then organically, we bring in [their sister] Lola (Sasha Calle) and you start to see them having family stories. If we did it like, ‘Here’s everybody all at once!’ it would scare everyone off.
Will we see their parents at some point?
Oh, yeah. There’s a whole story about where the dad is and the mother. Rey has a wife we’re going to be seeing down the line. She’s a big new character for us. We’ve got rich stories for every one of them.
Often, it takes a while for a new actor to settle in. Michael Mealor (Kyle) seems to have meshed nicely and quickly with the show’s vets.
Yes. He had two mentors when he started — Peter Bergman (Jack) and Jason Thompson (Billy), the two nicest guys in the business. They took him under their wings. Michael has this attitude that he wants to do good work. He passionately cares about it. He doesn’t fear it. He offered to come in on his days off to be part of the casting for Lola. He’s a special human being. He has hit the ground running.
The production values of the show look great; what have you brought to the show in terms of that?
Thank you. I hope people recognize that we’ve improved the lighting. We’ve made it more realistic. I’ve tried to make the direction and camera work more cinematic so that it doesn’t feel too ‘soapy’ – if that’s a word. Sometimes you can fall into a very old-fashioned outdated way of shooting drama on multi-camera. Multi-camera has to aspire to look like single camera. The camera moves have to be a particular way. We’ve lost the big zoom-ins. Those old ways are outdated. We’ve moved on from those. You want it to look like a prime time show.
Y&R’s lost two big fan favorites this year — Melissa Claire Egan (ex-Chelsea) and Mishael Morgan (ex-Hilary). Can you talk about the decision to write Chelsea out, leaving a return open, while Hilary was killed off?
When Missy [Claire Egan, ex-Chelsea] said she wanted to try new things we got the feeling that Chelsea was going off on a little trip and she wasn’t [leaving forever]. Missy and I talked about how this isn’t the end of the story. Chelsea has Adam’s kid. She’s got a big chunk of Y&R history out there. That character will walk back in one day. There’s no doubt about it.
Conversely, Hilary went to that big soap in the sky. Why?
I haven’t told anyone in the press this story, but I’m going to tell you. When Mishael came to me and said she wanted to move on, we talked about it. She’s a very talented and ambitious actress. She has big dreams. I said to her, ‘You’re not coming back, are you?’ She went no. She said there are so many opportunities for diverse casting now. She was upfront about that. She said I think I’ve got my moment. I said you’ve got the best show reel on TV. You’re leaving at a high. I’ll give you the biggest exit story I can possibly give you. I want you to be the next person we see in prime time.
What if all those beats had been played — the accident, Devon (Bryton James) and Hilary remarrying, and then Devon walks into the hospital room to find Hilary gone, leaving a note behind that they’d re-wed in haste and she was leaving town to recover?
I said to CBS and Sony she’s not coming back. I think we should kill her. Killing her sends out a message to everyone that she’s not coming back. Often soap deaths are never [final] and the viewers see through that. We got a lot of great comments from viewers loving that we did a proper death and showed the proper emotions. We showed the impact on Lily (Christel Khalil), Devon, and Neil (Kristoff St. John). It had repercussions.
Also, I didn’t want anyone else playing Hilary. I said to Mishael, ‘You’ve created this amazing, sometimes monstrous, character, I think it would be really hard to recast you and also a disservice to the character if we just went here’s another….actress who’s going to play you now.’ No. She will forever more now be Hilary. That was the best gift we gave her and she was in tears when I told her that. That was the reason we did it, two reasons.
Devon will either forgive Lily for Hilary’s death the way the Winters clan appears to have forgiven Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) for her role in Dru’s (Victoria) death – or it’ll be like Phillip (Donnelly Rhodes), where his passing was always there between Kay (Jeanne Cooper) and Jill (Jess Walton).
It’s real [for Devon]. His next big story is in trying to come to terms with his sister and his wife.
Adam (Justin Hartley) has already “died” once and come back once with plastic surgery. If and when he comes back again, do you write in a second round of plastic surgery to explain a new actor’s face in the role – or do you just not mention it?
I try not to think about that because it would keep me awake at night. I don’t know if or when [Adam will be back]. Everyone talks about him a lot. He seems to be a big part of the show. He’s officially dead, but…maybe not?
With Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) raising his son, Christian, and becoming more Adam-like, it sets the stage for Adam to return and square off against his brother.
There’s nothing to talk about right now [in terms of an Adam return].21 Actors to Keep in Mind for Next Year's Daytime Emmys (PHOTOS)
The focus might be on the 2018 primetime awards right now, but we already have our picks for 2019's soap set.
Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) killed J.T. (Luckinbill) to save her daughter Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and then they formed a pact with Sharon (Sharon Case) and Phyllis to keep silent. Why? Paul (Doug Davidson), the police chief, and Christine (Lauralee Bell), the district attorney, are sympathetic characters. Why wouldn’t they believe this was self-defense?
We picked these four particularly because they naturally don’t get along. Phyllis and Sharon don’t – there’s so much history there. Phyllis doesn’t trust Nikki and Victoria. It’s a fascinating mix. Then you throw into that the cops have always been looking to pin something on the Newmans. Paul and Christine have always wanted that, but they haven’t gotten close enough because of his relationship with Nikki. To bring in an outside [player, namely, Rey] who doesn’t have that history to rock the boat, ask questions, and also be falling over Sharon complicates things nicely.
You said you’d like to see an episode of Y&R done with just two actors — Peter Bergman (Jack) and Jess Walton (Jill) or Judith Chapman (Gloria) would be great. Who do you think?
(Laughs) I couldn’t answer that. They’re all fantastic. I don’t have pets, regardless of what social media says. But they’re all good enough to do it. That’s why I’m confident that we can do it. We’ve got the actors and the writers to do it!

This September marks David Muir’s fourth anniversary anchoring ABC’s World News Tonight.
He has more to celebrate than just that milestone: By the end of July, his show had beaten its network rivals in total audience for most of the past year.
What’s more, in April, Muir’s Q Score was the highest of any other TV news media personality, meaning he’s the most liked by viewers. The anchor shares some thoughts about his high-profile job.David Muir of World News Tonight: 6 Things I've Learned as News Anchor
The evening news anchor shares what he's learned on his one-year ABC anniversary
Why is a nightly show still relevant in a world of Twitter and endless online news?
David Muir: Americans are hungry for someone to break through the noise, and that’s what our team is doing. Network news is more than just relevant; it’s growing. Our newscast has the largest audience it’s had in 13 years.
You’ve traveled abroad 20 times in the past four years. What’s one report that really moved you?
We did a story about the famine in Somaliland in 2017. After it aired, viewers raised $1.8 million to help. I never underestimate people’s generosity and interest level in news around the world.
What stories are your current passion?
We have a feature called “America Strong,” where we highlight ordinary Americans going above and beyond. One standout was about a 20-year-old named Walter whose car broke down [before] his first day of work at a moving company. He walked all night, 20 miles, to get there on time. We do what we can to remind [viewers] that there is a common humanity.
What’s your first news grab in the morning and last at night?
I look at my iPhone the moment I wake up and read what our incredible overnight team put together. Then I dive into [newspapers] and I watch our competitors. I wish I could say I block out the news before I go to bed, but the last things I hear are “talking heads,” and then I do one last phone check!

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the Season 1 Episode of Castle Rock, "Past Perfect."]
After last week's dream-like journey through Ruth's mind and reality, Castle Rock put the pedal to the metal with its latest installment "Past Perfect."
While ramping up the energy, the show also deepens the mystery surround The Kid and his purpose — Is he evil? Is he human? More questions are raised each week and with only two more episodes left in the season we're exploring "Past Perfect" moments and new theories about what might be next.
One thing is for sure, all is not well in Castle Rock.A Major 'Castle Rock' Death & More Moments Explained From 'The Queen' Episode
Plus, did you catch those Leonardo DiCaprio movie references?New Neighbors
Castle Rock's newest residents start off the episode by purchasing deceased Warden Lacy's (Terry O'Quinn) house. The married couple who are going through a rough patch after the wife (Lauren Bowles) cheated on her husband Gordon (Mark Harelik) create a bed and breakfast with an interesting theme. Using mannequins, they recreate famous murders that occurred within the home — Gordon is a murder enthusiast.
You know things are taking a turn when Gordon's wife accesses the mysterious basement previously mentioned in the season. So what does this cavern hold? Multiple paintings of The Kid (Bill Skarsgård) created by warden Lacy — when Gordon makes a connection with one of the images you know their doomed fate is sealed. Similar to physical situations throughout the season when The Kid is present, Gordon's connection to the painting takes and ugly turn to murder when a couple arrives at their establishment.What Might Fans Expect From 'Castle Rock' Season 2?
The series is set in the same universe as Stephen King's works.
The ill-fated ending calls into question the reason that Lacy's wife Martha (Frances Conroy) wouldn't allow Henry (André Holland) to enter the basement before. Could she have known the paintings were cursed as The Kid appears to be? We wonder...Henry's Visions
After being locked in a soundproof chamber, Henry experiences visions in the form of a montage with interesting images. Among the flashes are a basement setting, The Kid's face, the woods, and a young Henry holding a screw driver. What do they have in common? Viewers will likely have to wait for more, but Molly's (Melanie Lynskey) ability to find him suggests there's more to her abilities than previously implied. Later on in the episode she notes that when she's around The Kid she feels different than any other experience she's had with her "psychic" powers. Could his presence be heightening that?Meet the Colorful Characters of Hulu's 'Castle Rock' (PHOTOS)
Learn more about the people from this peculiar town.The Kid
For weeks the question about who and what The Kid is has haunted fans, and it feels like viewers are finally making leeway. When Henry returned home from the woods, The Kid explains what happened to Ruth (Sissy Spacek) with accuracy, but his tone continues to imply a deep understanding of Henry, whether he's channeling his dead father or not. The most disconcerting information introduced about The Kid this week though, was his claim that he's waited 27 years for Henry without any explanation. At the end of the episode he has a scene with Molly that further complicates matters, as he displays a deep knowledge of her life as well, and suggests that she's... dead? Either way fans are seeing more layers to this otherwise mysterious character each week, will answers be provided by the season's end? We hope so.'Castle Rock' EP Says Hulu Series 'Isn't Just for Die-Hard Stephen King Superfans'

The horror enthusiast and semi-town historian Jackie Torrance (Jane Levy) drops by the bed and breakfast in the midst of Gordon and his wife's murder clean-up, and it sets off a red flag. Worried about the situation when she returns she also manages to save Henry from near-death as he and Gordon tussle on the front lawn with a knife. Ultimately Jackie's axe wins the fight, and hopefully she'll be there to save the day in the future if need be.Roush Review: 'Castle Rock' Viewers Are in For a Frightfully Fun Ride

When Henry decides to send his son back to Boston, Wendell (Chosen Jacobs) is left on the bus waiting to pull away from Castle Rock when a crow flies into the windshield — an image introduced earlier in the season. Moments later, Wendell is overpowered by a ringing sound, could he be suffering from the same ailment his father has? He definitely seems to have a bigger grasp than viewers are being shown.
Until the next episode the mysteries continue, but there's sure to be some answers soon, right?

Showtime has officially announced that Emmy Rossum will exit Shameless after Season 9.
The actress's role on the show moving forward came in to question after she posted a long message to fans implying an exit. The network confirmed Rossum's announcement in a statement from Showtime's head of programming Gary Levine:
"We were saddened when Emmy Rossum let us know that the upcoming ninth season of Shameless would be her last. But we are filled with an overwhelming sense of joy and gratitude for Emmy’s inspired work on our series, of course in front of the camera but also behind it. Fiona Gallagher will always be one of Showtime’s iconic characters, and we applaud Emmy for bringing this character to life in such a natural, touching and fearless performance. On behalf of everyone at Showtime and her millions of fans, we thank you Emmy!"
As Shameless nears its Season 9 premiere, one of its biggest stars is hinting at an exit.
Emmy Rossum, who leads the ensemble cast alongside William H. Macy on the Showtime series, posted a cryptic, emotional, and lengthy letter to fans on her Facebook page Thursday. The actress' tone and sentiment are causing many fans to worry this is the last we'll see of Fiona Gallagher.TV News Roundup: 'Shameless' Season 9 Premiere, 'Queer Eye' Trailer & More
Plus, Greg Berlanti's big deal and Jim Carrey's 'Kidding' trailer.
Beginning her letter, Rossum writes, "It’s a hard thing to put into words, feelings. But I’m going to try. Until Shameless came into my life 8 years ago, I led that kind of transient wonderful life of an actor. And I never realized how much I actually craved the kind of continuity that this show has given me.
"See, in real life, unlike Fiona, I’m an only child," Rossum continues. "I never had a big family. Being ensconced in that messy Gallagher family love is something I’d always dreamed of. But even off set, it feels real... It really feels like a family."
Since premiering in 2011, Shameless has seen Rossum and her co-stars grow and mature in front of audiences. As the oldest of the Gallagher children, Rossum's Fiona was a force from the start, and the series has only gained traction with its availability on streaming services like Netflix.
"This kind of stability, this family, has nurtured me and made feel safe enough to stretch and grow creatively," she adds in the letter. "The opportunity to play Fiona has been a gift. There are few characters — female or otherwise — as layered and dynamic. She is a mother lion, fierce, flawed and sexually liberated. She is injured, vulnerable, but will never give up. She is living in an economic depression, but refuses to be depressed. She is resourceful. She is loyal. She is brave," she continued. "I knew it the second I read the pilot script, this was different, this was special... Quite simply, the last eight years have been the best of my life... I am proud and I’m filled with gratitude."Showtime Sets 'Ray Donovan' Return, Expands 'Shameless,' Announces End of 'Homeland'
Plus, check out the trailers for 'Ray Donovan' and the network's new series.
Clearly Rossum is proud of her cast and crew and thankful for the show's continued impact, but it isn't until the tail end of her letter that the reality of her statement sinks in.
"I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block," she concludes, alongside a throwback photo with the cast and crew.
— Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) August 30, 2018
So what does this mean? Fans of the show know she'll be part of Season 9 — she's present in the trailer — but it doesn't sound like it's a permanent goodbye if she is leaving. "I know you will continue on without me," seems clear but her addition of "for now," leads many to think of Rossum's goodbye as temporary.
Until any official statements are released from the network, Rossum's letter is open to interpretation. Let us know what you think about her words in the comments below.

Teriah Is Back! 'Young & the Restless' Stars Camryn Grimes & Cait Fairbanks on Reigniting Mariah & Tessa
Fans of Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) are rejoicing now that the latter, after leaving Genoa City for a bit, is back on-screen at The Young and the Restless.
The couple’s gone through a lot of ups and downs as Mariah’s been questioning what — and who — she wants out of life. TV Insider chatted with the two actresses about their on-screen and off-screen dynamic, how they handle fan response to it, and what Fairbanks thought of Grimes’ emotional speech when she won this year’s Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.21 Actors to Keep in Mind for Next Year's Daytime Emmys (PHOTOS)
The focus might be on the 2018 primetime awards right now, but we already have our picks for 2019's soap set.
Tessa’s return has saved Mariah some serious money. She was contemplating hiring a private eye to locate her!
Camryn Grimes: In real-life! I want to know where you are at all times, but you won’t share your location with me on your phone!
Cait Fairbanks: I’m always trying to protect her [so I won’t tell her where I am]. She’s my angel!
It looked like the show might have been backing away from your storyline when Tessa left town. How did you feel when it was picked up again?
Grimes: I think it was always the intention to go back to it. I know some people panicked for a bit. So much happened between Noah [played by Robert Adamson], Mariah, and Tessa that you couldn’t just jump into a relationship after all of that went down and she stole the notebook. There had to be a build. I like that it was slow. I like that they found their way back to each other when it seemed like so much damage had been done because that’s the true testament of the feelings [that] are there.
Fairbanks: [Camryn and I] were on the same page in that we knew it was always going to be a thing but we didn’t 100 percent know. I think it had to [take time] because there was no way the relationship could just start after Noah. If you cheat on someone you can’t just get with the person right away. There are always trust issues.
In a sizzle reel of Riverdale shown at Comic-Con, there were snippets of two same sex couples shown. Thousands of fans cheered and applauded. But, sometimes, same-sex couples on daytime don’t get that response.
Grimes: Oh, I watch Riverdale. I love Riverdale. Please let Cheryl [Madelaine Petsch] get an older sister someday. Please.
How much do you guys read online about viewer response to Mariah and Tessa?
Fairbanks: I don’t read that much anymore. Most of the comments I see are pretty positive. Every so often we’ll get something [negative]. I try to call them out. Either way I feel that people know not to mess with us about it. I want to always clap back, but I don’t want to give that person attention. They have zero followers and [if I respond] they’ll get thousands of views. I’d rather have them shrivel.
Grimes: I echo the same thing Cait said. Most of the comments are positive. There’s this whole community now on Twitter that’s crazy [in a good way].
Fairbanks: They are the best.
Grimes: They’re the best. Honestly, they do a lot of the clap backs for us so we don’t have to. Every now and then [I’ll respond]. I’ve gotten over clapping back to everything because I realize it’s just not the important conversation. The important conversation is something we’re already doing. We’re continuing this story. It’s happening and those people who don’t agree, I’m sorry, but they’re just going to kind of go away eventually. It’s an old mentality that I think will die out.Christel Khalil Downgrades to Recurring Status on 'Young and the Restless'
But what will happen to Lane (aka Lily and Cane)?
What does Mariah bring to Tessa’s life and what does Tessa bring to Mariah’s?
Grimes: Tessa’s a whole enigma wrapped in a surprise. There’s the obvious — her sexuality. She challenges Mariah in trust and in vulnerability and emotion. These are all new things for Mariah. I think this real kind of love, this vulnerable, high-emotion, intense love is pushing Mariah out of her comfort zone.
Tessa: What’s interesting is that even though Tessa comes off closed-off, it’s the same thing; Mariah is challenging Tessa’s sense of vulnerability. Tessa is very protective and wants to take care of Mariah. She sees her as this big, shiny thing that she wants to just keep safe. Mariah brings this sweet energy [to Tessa’s life] that she’s never had. She’s had bad stuff happen to her. I think she brings an innocence to her life that she’s never really had before. It’s an innocent love that’s sweet and kind.
What did you think of Camryn’s Emmy speech in April in which she dedicated her award to anyone who’s “dared to dream and dared to love”?
Fairbanks: I was up, clapping the whole time. It was great. It’s true. It’s a tough business and this storyline aligns with us in different ways.
A post shared by Camryn Grimes (@camryngrimes) on May 1, 2018 at 9:57am PDT
You remember a time when daytime told its stories more slowly. Do you think Y&R telling this story slowly has been beneficial?
Grimes: I do remember that. I like the pacing of this story. Given that this was uncharted territory on our show, pretty much, for the most part…you gotta take your time and do it right.
Fairbanks: I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I think people were excited about it before it even happened.
Do you have a couple name?
Fairbanks: “Teriah.” There was “Messa” and “Teriah.”
Grimes: “Teriah” is the one that stuck.

After a crazy second season filled with Black Hood mayhem, surprising arrests, and battles for territory, Riverdale is showing no signs of slowing down in Season 3.
In a newly-released teaser for the upcoming episodes, fans were treated to even more exciting moments than first tease they got at San Diego Comic-Con.

Below, find the full rundown of the best moments from the 30-second teaser.Archie Goes to Jail
It was pretty much a given that Archie (K.J. Apa) would face jail time, considering that Season 2 wrapped with his arrest. Even though we know he's being framed by town baddie Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos), it appears that viewers will tag along for the protagonist's still-difficult journey. Even though Archie's ordeal was teased in the SDCC preview, this new teaser is sharing a lot more and bolsters the ginger's street cred.Cool for the Summer
In spite of being arrested, Archie seems to have enough time outside of jail in Season 3 to jaunt around town with Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), and Betty (Lili Reinhart). The group enjoys the simple things like cooling down in the river, driving around in a throwback convertible, and being "carefree."Behind the Scenes With the 'Riverdale' Cast on Set (PHOTOS)

Of course, now that he's been crossed by Hiram Lodge, wouldn't you side with the group actively fighting against him?Falice Is Real
Fans have been itching to see Betty's mother Alice (Madchen Amick) and Jughead's father FP (Skeet Ulrich) as a couple is skipping all the fluff and heading straight for the bedroom. Since Betty's father Hal (Lochlyn Munro) is out of the picture for being the Black Hood, there's a clear path for the former Serpent to worm her way back into FP's heart.'Riverdale' Cast Hints at Season 3's New Big Bad, What's Next for Choni & More Casualties (VIDEO)

For fans shipping Kevin (Casey Cott) and Moose (Cody Kearsley), they appear to have a big treat ahead as this secret couple seems to go public in the new teaser. Since Season 1, Kevin has had flings with the closeted jock, but a kiss near the lockers looks as if this pair isn't hiding or holding back anything anymore.What Is That?!
It was hinted that Betty's sister Polly (Tiera Skovbye) had joined a cult referred to as "The Farm." As innocent as it seemed in the beginning, the SDCC teaser hinted at dark things to come from Polly's involvement with these people.

The imagery is vague but Jughead's voice is clear as day in the final moment from the teaser. "Help, somebody, help!" he yells next to two inanimate bodies near a cult-like shrine. But who needs help? Viewers will just have to wait and see, but consider us intrigued.
There were quick shots of other fan favorites throughout the teaser, too, including Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) — but not together, sorry Choni fans. Catch the whole video below and make sure to catch the latest Season of Riverdale this fall on The CW.

Move over, Jack Bauer. There's a new Jack in town, taking on global terrorists, with an even higher pop-culture profile from a series of blockbuster movies and best-selling novels.
Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan probably needs no further introduction as the franchise moves to Amazon Prime Video's streaming platform, a near-perfect medium for an exciting, tautly entertaining deep dive into high-octane international intrigue. We've seen this icon in action as played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine—and now it's John Krasinski's turn, embodying the hero at his most empathetic, idealistic and unyielding.'Jack Ryan' EPs Carlton Cuse & Graham Roland Reveal What It Took to Create the Series (VIDEO)
And how the lead role was hard to cast until John Krasinski walked in.
Toward the end of the eight-episode first season — a second is already underway — Ryan's boss (the excellent Wendell Pierce) offers some jaded perspective while surveying a Turkish beach overrun with desperate refugees: "There is no version of this job that doesn't require compromise, not if you want to do something that matters." Ryan isn't sure he's buying it — yet.
Amazon's Jack Ryan series introduces the character at an early stage of his career: still working a desk at CIA's HQ in Langley, four years into his job as an analyst. The former Marine doesn't exactly jump at the chance to go into the field once he connects the dots to expose "a brand new Bin Laden" in the form of an Islamic radical sheik, Mousa Bin Suleiman (Ali Suliman). But off he reluctantly goes, and his Marine training soon comes in handy as he jets to a Yemen military base to interrogate suspects with a lead to the mysterious terrorist. Before the first episode is over, an attack on the base will satisfy any action fan's quota for violent mayhem, and Ryan emerges with aches and pains — and a bruised ego as his resolve to pursue his prey intensifies.
There's a haunted sorrow in Krasinski's subdued and appealing performance, which occasionally explodes into undisciplined rage as the body count and stakes rise. He's well matched by Suliman's shaded portrayal of Ryan's ruthless antagonist, and Saudi actress Dina Shihabi is equally compelling as the sheik's wife, Hanin, whose attempts to flee the conflict with her children become a riveting subplot over multiple episodes.
Likely to make nearly as much noise as Krasinski's superb hit horror film A Quiet Place, the new Jack Ryan won me over early on, when it showed him on a night off watching Jeopardy! at home over takeout. Just like the rest of us! I'll take "Sure-Fire Hits" for $800, Alex.
Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Series Premiere, Friday, August 31, Amazon Prime VideoBack to the Ozarks
One sure bet in the turbulent tanglewoods of Netflix's Ozark: Trouble will keep clipping the wings of the Byrdes, whose only goal is to get out.
Which makes for an entertaining second season of suspense, as on-the-lam money launderer Marty (Jason Bateman) and wife Wendy (Laura Linney) dream of fleeing to faraway shores with their two teenagers—as soon as they can open a casino as a front for a deadly drug cartel. But because this is an open-ended serial, viewers may be frustrated as well while plodding through 10 very long chapters of increasingly outlandish twists—including one ill-advised hostage crisis—that mire these antiheroes in a quicksand of plot machinations.
Ozark is driven more by story than character this year, despite the best work of Bateman, whose every look conveys guarded panic, and Linney, revealing ruthless steel beneath a benign surface.'Ozark' Cast Previews an Even Darker Season 2 — Plus, More Messed-Up TV Families
Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and more tease the Netflix series' return on August 31.
Best of luck telling the good guys from the bad, with adversarial allies that include the ferocious Janet McTeer as an icy cartel lawyer, the terrific Julia Garner returning as Ruth Langmore, the scrappy local trying to keep her jailbird dad (Trevor Long) from wreaking too much havoc, and Peter Mullan and Lisa Emery as the fearsome Snells, willful opium farmers with no love for these big-city interlopers.
Ozark is still a compelling place to visit, but, like the Byrdes, I’m itching for an endgame.

In ABC’s drama The Rookie, inspired by a true story, he plays the oldest new recruit in the Los Angeles Police Department.
Below, Fillion gives us his witness statement.
Nolan is 40, divorced and a dad. What else?
Nathan Fillion: His construction job was never his dream, and he wants to be relevant. LAPD is one of the few police departments that will take you over age 37. He’s optimistic and wants to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but he’s entering a world where people will hurt you as soon as [they] look at you.ABC Fall 2018 Premiere Dates: 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'The Conners,' & More Shows
Plus, find out when 'The Good Doctor' comes back.
What preparation did you do?
I met the original guy, but we’re not trying to reflect his life. We’re chasing a big bowl of starting over. There’s a cultural shift: People reboot at 40. We also train with police consultants and have them on set to make sure we lend reality to procedures.
How are you handling the physical demands?
There’s a lot of running, jumping, struggling and fighting. My knees are not so great. If I have to run down the street super-duper fast and you don’t see my face, it’s the [stunt] guy.
You’re 47. Did you ever feel out of touch with your younger co-stars?
I rented a karaoke machine and had the cast over. I didn’t know more than half the songs they knew, and they knew maybe half that I grew up with. But I don’t have time for new stuff! I’m a little cranky and older. I’m a creature of habit.
What have you learned?
We don’t see a lot of good news about police officers. But police are here for a reason — for many it’s a calling — and there are good officers who want to serve and protect.

Althea (Maggie Grace) is about to be put through the paces on this week's intense episode of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.
In the second half of its fourth season, The Walking Dead spinoff has been focusing on character-centric episodes, most recently with hours devoted to Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) and, last week, Morgan (Lennie James). In Sunday's episode, it's time to catch up with Al and June (Jenna Elfman), who were separated from the rest of the group after the recent hurricane.Mike's Meeting Meltdown & 3 More Crucial Moments From the 'Better Call Saul' Episode 'Talk'
The pressure is building.
During our chat with Grace on our TV Babble by TV Insider podcast, she talked about this particular episode and just how dire things get for the two women, whether Althea can trust June, and if a day battling a zombie on set is a good day or, well, a not-so-good day for an actor. Yes, we also talked Althea's hair!
Check out the podcast interview below (as always, you can listen here or you can download/subscribe for free here)....and see below for an exclusive clip from Sunday's episode.
In this exclusive clip, June realizes that Althea is coming down with a fever and things will only go south from there:

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the Season 5 finale of Younger, "Lizability."]
TV Land's rom-com Younger wrapped up Season 5 tonight with some shocking twists for our favorite characters both in and outside of the publishing world.
Liza (Sutton Foster) is sticking around Empirical/Millennial after all, mostly because financial backer Quinn Tyler (Laura Benanti) isn't letting her go. Meanwhile, Charles (Peter Hermann) is being "put out to pasture," according to Diana (Miriam Shor), by being promoted to a chairman role that would put him out of the spotlight (good news since his leaked romance with Liza could have painted the company in a poor light).'Younger' Season 5 Tackles #MeToo & the Changing Liza-Charles-Josh Triangle
'Younger' is almost back! Here's what you need to know about Season 5.
That, of course, leaves the role of publisher open for Kelsey (Hilary Duff) who has more than proved her worth after the success of her own imprint. And while Zane (Charles Michael Davis) might have quit, surely he won't be gone for long. Oh and before we forget, Claire (Phoebe Dynevor) is PREGNANT?! That can't be good for Josh's (Nico Tortorella) dreams of raising a loving family — or can it?
We can't wait to see where this all goes in Season 6, which yes, TV Land has already announced. Duff gives us some scoop on Kelsey's promotion and more.
First off, congrats on having another outstanding season under your belt.
Hilary Duff: Thank you so much. I loved this season. I think it was my favorite.
Have you read any scripts or do you know anything about next season's direction?
No, we don't have any scripts. They like to wait until the last minute to share anything with us. And honestly, I think it's because they don't know themselves. But sometimes we get our scripts during the table read.
Well, we do know that, during tonight's episode, Kelsey has gotten a huge promotion. How do you think she will do running the company as publisher?
I think that she's a little intimidated and feels like this is a big undertaking. But I also feel like she's been trying to be heard for a long time at that company and I think she doesn't know if it's her age or because she's a woman, but she's been constantly questioned with her choices. But she's a boss! I think she's going to step up and do a killer job. Plus, I love the addition of Quinn. She's all about female empowerment and her outlook on business and female relationships — it's pretty spot on. I think she's going to help mentor her a lot.5 Reasons Why 'The Bold Type' Needs a Musical Episode
With the cast's musical backgrounds and the potential for some real emotional moments, this is a no-brainer!
Do you think Kelsey will rely on Charles for advice at all?
Kelsey's respectful to Charles because he had given her a lot of opportunity in the beginning, but a lot of her respect has dwindled for him. They butt heads a lot this season. Kelsey's a class act. I know she gets a little too drunk and goes a little too hard sometimes but she is smart. She's got it figured out. And I think she's lost a lot of respect for him in the way that he's handled the relationship with Liza and the business itself. Also, his not trusting her decisions when she's the one who is raking in all the cash for the company.
Right?! Every time he would be like, 'I don't know if Kelsey can run Millennial without Liza' ... Liza has been important and all, but Kelsey's totally got this. The little amount of faith that she can steer the ship that she created is just crazy.
I can't tell you the amount of times where he's like giving Liza props and Kelsey's sitting there like, 'Really?' It's always like, 'Oh, Liza saved the day.' And for a lot of that, Kelsey didn't know he was in love with her. Kelsey was the one making the big decisions. So, I think she's going to finally be rewarded and I think she's going to do a great job. I love that we're going to see a lot of pressure put on her shoulders because I think young people do have a lot of pressure to deal with these days. She's not just a big talker, she's a doer. So hopefully she'll do a good job.
Now, Zane had a bit of a dramatic exit in the finale. What's the deal with them? Are we going to see him again or is he gone for good?
He looks too good to be done. He's such a good fit on our show and I think they do just have a chemical reaction to each other. I love that storyline. I do hate that he leaves the second she gets a promotion. Like, he is so weak. Well, that's just going to fuel their fire. I think that they're going to continue to hook up, but I don't know if that's going to get anymore serious.
I liked that we saw him a little more of his thoughts. He didn't come out and say how he felt about her soon enough in the beginning. The second another guy gets in the mix that she's interested in, he gets all emo about it and waits until it's too late to tell her he loves her. It's such a dude thing. Like, 'Wait, really?!' I don't think they're done, but I think Kelsey's going to learn a big lesson from this one. She doesn't make good choices in love.
Younger has already been renewed for a sixth season on TV Land.
September may be the month of network returning favorites and newbies, but Netflix is going to hold their own with a stacked list of fall releases.
Beginning September 7, family dramedy Atypical returns for a second season after leaving fans with a finale cliffhanger last year. Meanwhile on September 4, blockbuster smash hit Marvel Studios' Black Panther will be available to subscribers.
Fans of comedies BoJack Horseman and American Vandal will be pleased to learn that both shows return with new seasons on September 14. Later in the month, don't miss the highly anticipated limited series Maniac starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill or The Good Cop featuring Josh Groban and Tony Danza — both shows debut September 21.What's Coming and Going From Netflix in August 2018

"I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead," Goodman teased of his character Dan, Roseanne Conner's husband, in the new ABC series. His words seem to confirm the theory that fans have had since Barr was announced as not having a role in the spinoff: Her character will be killed off.John Goodman Speaks Out on 'Roseanne' Drama, Hints at the Death of Barr's Character
The actor finally breaks his silence on the ABC cancellation.
Then again, Goodman's words could be misleading — a way to keep fans off the trail of the real story. We're breaking down some theories that could explain the Conner family matriarch's absence from the show.Knee Surgery Complications
At the end of the Roseanne revival's first and only season, Barr's character was dealing with some serious knee pain. In the finale, Dan was pleased to hear that a storm that tore through their hometown of Lanford was declared a state of emergency so he could fund surgery for his wife.
If the story follows suit with what was set up in the finale, Roseanne is likely to die while under the knife or at least from surgery-related complications. Based on Goodman's statement and the show's arc, this the most likely option.How 'Roseanne' Cast Members Have Responded to the Cancellation & Controversy (So Far)
Laurie Metcalf has yet to comment.A Nod to the Original Series
In Roseanne's original run, the finale revealed that Dan had died of a heart attack prior to the show's end — which was magically reversed for the show's return last year. Unexpected as it would be, killing off Roseanne with a heart attack would be on-theme.
Plus, heart issues could easily be linked to the character's already-existing health complications. Maybe the surgery didn't come together in enough time to prevent a catastrophic cardiac event.Pill Addiction
Last season, Barr's character dealt with prescription pill addiction. Maybe she'll take one too many? It's a far stretch considering the show's audience and network, but Roseanne never shied away from taboo topics, so an overdoes isn't completely off the table. Drug addiction and substance abuse has become increasingly more relevant in the news, so it would be a timely touch by the writers.ABC Officially Picks Up 'Roseanne' Spinoff 'The Conners' Without Roseanne Barr
The show will focus on all of the Conner family aside from Roseanne — so how will she exit the show?Cancer
Another unlikely version, Roseanne could go in to surgery and discover she's more sick than she previously thought. The Conners' lack of medical insurance was a big theme in the revival, and a cancer diagnosis would be devastating for the financially-strapped family. This explanation would also work best if the show were to make a time-jump, which hasn't been confirmed or denied. Until more details surface, this theory is definitely one of the least likely scenarios, but not impossible.She's Alive
In an unlikely turn of events, could Roseanne's life be spared? Ultimately, this would only happen if the show wants to stick to a more comedic tone than one that's sad and dark. Maybe she's gone off to live with her youngest child, Jerry Garcia Conner, who was mentioned but didn't appear in the revival. It would certainly be the less upsetting alternative for fans who are sad to think of the iconic character as dead.
Whichever way viewers look at it, Barr's character won't be around. So speculate away, and be sure to tune in for The Conners to find out Roseanne's fate this fall.

On August 25, Senator John McCain passed away at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer. And the former presidential candidate not only left a lasting legacy in politics, but he also made his mark in the television world.
Though he was a serious politician, McCain never missed a chance to poke fun at himself. During his 2008 run against President Obama, McCain appeared a few times on Saturday Night Live, all in good spirits.Hillary Clinton Producing Scripted TV Drama About Women's Voting Rights

On the Season 2 finale of Bull, Dr. Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) almost didn't make it.
After winning one of the toughest cases of his career, he stepped outside the courthouse, only to realize something was very off. Last we saw of the legal mastermind, he was talking to the 911 operator, saying, "I think I need an ambulance. I think I'm having a heart attack."
Given the show's title and the fact that the CBS drama was renewed for Season 3, we're pretty sure Bull survives. But how will this life-or-death health scare affect him in the upcoming episodes?'Bull' Season 3: Annabelle Attanasio Leaving the Series
She plays Cable McCrory.
EP Glenn Gordon Caron told TV Insider previously that Bull will have a new lease on life. "I would hope that it would have a positive impact and it would make him appreciate life more and make him be somewhat more sensitive to people. He’s a very sensitive fellow and he means to be nice, but every so often he slips or he’s a little myopic in his thinking," he said.
Which could possibly mean a reconciliation with ex-wife Izzy (Yara Martinez), for whom he realizes he still has feelings. "Anything’s possible, she’s a wonderful character, wonderful actress. I love working with her, so why not?" Caron added.

"Bull returns to work following his heart attack with a new rich client for the firm to represent: an insurance company being sued by a dying mother for denying coverage of her liver transplant," reveals a press release.
So safe to say, Bull is back with his TAC (Trial Analysis Corporation) team, in particular Marissa (Geneva Carr), who was toying with the idea of leaving the firm.
