NBC renews 'SVU' for 16th season

Yup, it’s coming back!

NBC has renewed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for a 16th season.

Why? Because ratings for this current season ain’t too shabby: It’s been averaging a 2.5 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 8.4 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen. That’s an increase versus last year of 19% in adults 18-49 (2.5 vs. 2.1) and 16% or 1.2 million persons in total viewers (8.4 million vs. 7.2 million).

NBC made the announcement in preparation for its upfront presentation Monday in New York. Stay tuned for more pickups (or cancellations).

TNT picks up dramas with Jennifer Beals, Ed Burns

UPDATED: TNT has ordered the supernatural drama Proof, a Jennifer Beals starrer about a brilliant surgeon who’s persuaded by a cancer-stricken tech millionaire (Matthew Modine) to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings and other supernatural phenomena.

The network has ordered 10 episodes of the drama that’ll also star Joe Morton (Scandal). The drama’s from Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer) and  Rob Bragin, who wrote the pilot.

It’ll bow in 2015.

Also on tap for next year: Public Morals, a police drama from Ed Burns (Saving Private Ryan). Set in New York in the 1960s, the drama focuses on the police department’s public morals division, where cops walk the line between morality and criminality as the temptations that come from dealing with all kinds of vice threaten to get the better of them. The show centers on Officer Terry Muldoon (Burns), who is determined to raise his sons to be honest and hardworking as he deals with the city’s dark underbelly.

Public Morals also stars Michael Rapaport (Justified).

'Hit the Floor': Summer's sexiest promo has arrived -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

HIT-THE-FLOOR.jpg

Hit the Floor, VH1’s sexy summer soap revolving around the Devil Girls — the dancers for a fictional Los Angeles pro basketball team — returns May 26 for a second season. We’ve got your first look at the sexy, sweaty promo now. Watch it below. Fans will notice one new face: She’s All That‘s Jodi Lyn O’Keefe joins the show as Lionel, the estranged starlet wife of Coach Pete Davenport (Dean Cain). Other additions include Adam Senn’s Zero, a God-loving player who has eyes for bad girl Jelena (played by scene-stealer Logan Browning); and Brent Antonello’s Jude, an ambitious junior agent with mysterious motives.

The show was last summer’s top-rated new scripted cable series among adults 18-49. Cain tells EW he expects the ratings to continue to rise. “It is scandalous and wonderful, there’s a lot of beautiful youngins, the drama is good, and it’s set in a really fun, glamorous world, so I think we’re gonna pick up steam,” he says. Cain gets his first sex scene of the season less than 10 minutes in. “It’s a little slow for us,” he jokes. How will Lionel factor into Pete’s existing love triangle on the show? “It’s more of a diamond shape now. We’re gonna go for an octagon, maybe see what happens,” he says, laughing. “Let’s put it this way, when he was a [basketball] player, Pete Davenport was a prolific scorer. And now as a coach and as a lover, Pete Davenport is a prolific scorer.” READ FULL STORY

Kiefer Sutherland explains why one CIA operative wanted him to call his mom -- LISTEN!

Jack Bauer is almost back. Ahead of the May 5 debut of 24: Live Another Day, Kiefer Sutherland sat down with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean for a SiriusXM Town Hall premiering May 2 at 7 p.m. ET on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). Sutherland took questions from the audience, including one that led him to recount the story of a real CIA operative recognizing him on a ski lift and the conversation that ensued. The gentleman was a fan of the Fox drama but had one request: “He said, ‘I would really like it if you could call my mother and explain to her why I can’t get everything done in 24 hours,'” Sutherland says. “And so I apologized to him profusely.”

Listen to the clip below. Another fan, who’d marathoned 24, asked Sutherland which shows he’s binge-watched. Find out the answer in our second sneak peek. READ FULL STORY

'Outlander': See latest trailer for Starz series

'Drop Dead Diva' welcomes back Ben Feldman -- EXCLUSIVE

If Jane (Brooke Elliott) and Grayson (Jackson Hurst) finally making it to her bedroom in the April 27 episode wasn’t enough reason for Drop Dead Diva fans to be happy, we have another: Fred (Mad Men‘s Ben Feldman), Jane’s original guardian angel, will make a return in the final season. He’ll appear in an episode airing in June. Enjoy your first look (and pray no one touches any buttons).

'Sons of Anarchy': Theo Rossi looks ahead to the final season (and more anxiety)

It’s less than a month until cameras start rolling on the final season of FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and while Theo Rossi (Juice) hasn’t yet read the script for the premiere, fans know from creator Kurt Sutter’s WTF Sutter web series that it’s been turned in to the network with “a few disclaimers in terms of the tone.” 

That’s the kind of tease that makes die-hards both nervous and excited — a state Rossi himself has been in since the identity of Juice’s father became a plot point in season 4. “For anybody who’s had to be near me, live with me, be friends with me, family members, it’s been a nightmare, because it’s been anxiety ever since,” he jokes to EW. “The truth is, what I’ve gotten to do on this show I don’t think I’ll ever match on any job ever, because I’ve literally gotten to play every single emotion an actor can play. I’ve been the funny guy, the loyal guy, the guy fearing for my life, the guy trying to take my own life, the guy taking a lot of other people’s lives as a stone-cold killer, to this guy who’s kinda floating in the abyss now and you don’t know where he’s going — which I think is the most dangerous part about him,” Rossi says. “It’s why you do this, it’s why you get into this racket. Kurt gave me that all in one character. So for this year, I don’t expect that to be any different. If anything, I expect it only to be intensified, really heavily.” READ FULL STORY

'Veep' star Timothy Simons teases Jonah's 'moment in the sun' (and how he keeps a straight face)

It’s already been a season of change for White House liaison-turned-Ryantology founder/reporter Jonah Ryan on HBO’s Veep, but actor Timothy Simons tells EW that Sunday’s episode has yet another: “You might actually see, for the very first time, Jonah have a little bit of success — albeit short-lived,” he says. “Unfortunately the story always ends poorly for Jonah. But he does have a moment in the sun.” Looking further ahead into season 3, Simons says we’ll have more of an understanding of Jonah’s family by the time it’s over. We’ll meet a parent: “I don’t want to spoil any of that,” he says, “other than to say you get a little bit of insight into what might have created him.”

Here are three questions Simons could answer: READ FULL STORY
