‘The Affair': Joshua Jackson Will Not Return as Series Regular for Final Season
Joshua Jackson will not return as a series regular for the fifth and final season of “The Affair,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.

However, this may not be the last you see of Cole Lockhart, as Jackson could return in some form for the Showtime series’ farewell year in which, obviously, fans will be saying goodbye to all characters.

News of Jackson’s exit follows that of Ruth Wilson, whose character Alison (Jackson’s main love interest) was killed off the Sarah Treem-created drama toward the end of the recently-wrapped Season 4.

Wilson said last month that she was “not allowed” to talk about why her character was written out, but the actress later told the New York Times that her exit did

Johnny Galecki Will Appear on ‘The Conners’ – and Juliette Lewis Will Play His Girlfriend
Johnny Galecki is coming back for more “Roseanne” — er, “The Conners.” And this time he’s bringing Juliette Lewis with him — as his girlfriend!

“Here’s The Big News!! Look what I’m doin!!” Lewis wrote on Instagram Tuesday, alongside a picture of her with Galecki and Sara Gilbert, as well as an image of her holding a script from the show.

A spokesperson for ABC confirmed Galecki’s return as David, an ex of Sara Gilbert’s Darlene, for the spinoff and said that Lewis will be playing Blue — his girlfriend who was referenced on the first (and last) season of the “Roseanne” revival last spring.

The romantic interest casting might give some “Christmas Vacation” fans a chuckle, as the two played brother and sister, Audrey and Russell Griswold, on the Chevy Chase-led 1989 comedy.

‘Making a Murderer': Season 2 of Netflix’s True-Crime Series to Premiere Next Month
The highly-anticipated second season of its true-crime doc “Making a Murderer” will premiere Oct. 19, Netflix announced Tuesday.

Per Netflix, the second season will see filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to Wisconsin and follow the post-conviction process for Steve Avery and his co-defendant and nephew, Brendan Dassey. Earlier this month, Avery was denied a new trial for the second time by Sheboygan County Circuit Court judge Angela Sutkiewicz.

“Part 2” will introduce Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s hard-charging post-conviction lawyer, in her fight to prove that Avery was wrongly convicted and to win his freedom. Ricciardi and Demos follow Zellner, who has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in America, as she works the case and uncovers unexpected evidence about what may have happened to Teresa Halbach and about how and why the jury convicted Steven of her murder.

What Does Sky Look Like With Comcast at the Controls? (Analysis)

With its takeover of highly successful pay-tv service Sky now almost assured, Comcast is not expected to do anything to upset its new golden goose. But a change in culture seems inevitable, and possibly in management.

Comcast sees enough to like in Sky to shell out $40 billion and is expected to retain much of the team that has built the business. It would also be a PR misstep to make wholesale changes. “It wouldn’t be a good look if they have taken over one of the biggest TV companies in Europe and take out the European management,” said Tim Westcott,

NBC's New Amsterdam: Grade It!

NBC added another medical drama to its lineup with the series premiere of New Amsterdam on Tuesday. Will you be checking into this hospital?

Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) stars as Dr. Max Goodwin — did no one point out to the producers that there’s already a Goodwin on Chicago Med? — the new medical director of New Amsterdam, the oldest public hospital in America. (It even has its own public school and prison!) The institution has gone through five medical directors in five years, so the gig is not without its challenges.

‘This Is Us’ Review: Season 3 Premiere Milks a New Mystery and Has a Little Fun Forcing Those Heartfelt Moments

‘This Is Us’ Review: Season 3 Premiere Milks a New Mystery and Has a Little Fun Forcing Those Heartfelt Moments
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “This Is Us” Season 3 premiere, Episode 1, “Nine Bucks.”]

During the hourlong return of “This Is Us,” two scenes stand out in terms of what’s working and what’s not. On the heartening side — surprise, surprise — it’s Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Deja (Lyric Ross). Using his birthday as reason for reflection, the fan and family favorite drives his prospective daughter to his father’s old home. There, he tells her his life has been defined by being adopted, and he asks her to choose whether or not she would like to officially be made a part of his family.

It’s a great speech, one Randall later admits to rehearsing, but it doesn’t go as planned. Deja isn’t honored or moved by Randall letting her choose; she’s pissed that he’s reducing her story to mimic his own. “Don’t tell me we’re the same,

The third season premiere of “This Is Us” offered another glimpse at the future lives of Randall (Sterling K.

Dancing With the Stars Premiere, Part 2: Did the Right Couple Go Home First?

Just in case you were craving four hours of so-so ballroom dancing in one week, ABC fulfilled that wish on Tuesday with a second night of Dancing With the Stars‘ Season 27 launch.

Actually, let me amend that statement: Only one hour of Tuesday’s broadcast contained brand-new performances and judges’ scores. The first 60 minutes, meanwhile, were mostly filler, including recaps of Monday’s routines and the cast announcement for DWTS: Juniors.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for This Is Us‘ Season 3 premiere.

Oh, so that’s who “her” refers to.

Kidding. You didn’t really think that This Is Us, the show that spent two seasons making us clamor to watch a guy who’d already died die, was going to give up the goods so easily, did you?

Instead, the NBC drama’s Season 3 premiere Tuesday picked up with The Big 3’s birthday, which was filled with celebrations (thanks, Madison!) and disappointments (Deja’s breaking her foster dad’s heart) marking Kevin, Randall and Kate’s 38th trip around the sun.
