BBC America has picked up a second season for its new original series Atlantis. The show, which premiered Saturday, is a fantasy-adventure with characters such as Hercules, Pythagoras, and Medusa populating the supposed lost city. Following the mega Doctor Who 50th anniversary special event, the series premiered to 838,000 total viewers — a series-premiere record for the network’s Supernatural Saturdays programming block.
It seems BBC America’s good fortune has continued after the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode “Day of the Doctor” broke records with 2.4 million total viewers during the first American telecast. The special also received a Guinness World Record for “largest ever simulcast of a TV drama.”
Atlantis airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America.
Brody’s on a potential suicide mission. Carrie’s pregnant and off her meds. Saul is, once again, impressing us with his Langley warrior’s code of honor. Showtime’s Homeland is having its most-watched season yet and heating up for its home stretch, which will spend the bulk of its time following Brody’s assassination attempt on a high-ranking government official in Iran. We talked to showrunner Alex Gansa after Sunday’s riveting ninth episode that included Brody (Damian Lewis) coming off heroin, reuniting with Carrie (Claire Danes) and departing on his dangerous mission. Will Brody ever return?
Entertainment Weekly: That might have been the best episode of the season. Usually I like the episodes that are more story driven, but even though not a lot actually happened in terms of action I was pretty riveted.
Gansa: I’m glad you thought so. It’s a relief. The director, Jeffrey Reiner, did a fantastic job.
We’ve seen a lot of withdrawal scenes before. Can you talk about what you wanted to do differently with Brody?
Gansa: We looked at Gene Hackman’s performance in the second French Connection movie, which was incredible and somehow very personal — that’s what we wanted Brody to go through. Something that felt intimate and personal and not the same old thing. I know Damian did a tremendous amount of research and talked to junkies about what withdrawal is like. I think we do it in a very impressionistic way without spending too much time on it. And we introduced this drug ibogaine that speeds the process up that we learned about in our research.
I wasn’t sure if that was a real thing or an invention to take the scene to the next level.
Gansa: It’s totally a real thing.
Clearly you don’t ever want to go to CIA rehab. READ FULL STORY
'Bob's Burgers' animates The National singing Thanksgiving song in boatloads of gravy -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Fans of The National, Bob’s Burgers and, well, gravy, you are in for a treat: The Fox comedy has animated the Brooklyn indie rockers singing “Sailors in Your Mouth,” the wistful ode to the savory sauce that was heard in Sunday’s Thanksgiving episode. That wasn’t the first time that the band and Bob’s Burgers bonded: The National contributed a rendition of “Kill Your Turkey” to last year’s Thanksgiving episode, and Bob’s Burgers writer Scott Jacobson directed the video for The National’s “Conversation 16,” which stars… Bob’s voice actor Kristen Schaal.
Press play for a trippy, drippy journey into Bob’s mouth and beyond. READ FULL STORY
Seven was a lucky number for Tatiana Maslany this year: She broke out with her mesmerizing performance — well, seven of them, if you count all the clones she has played to date — in BBC America’s conspiracy drama Orphan Black. As a result, EW has named her one of our Entertainers of the Year. We asked the 28-year-old Canadian actress to select her most memorable day from her banner year, and she chose her journey this summer to San Diego for Comic-Con. Maslany being Maslany, she couldn’t just play one role that day, so she took on two: celebrity and fan. Read on:

The Time Lord has conquered the box office.
A special nationwide 3D screening of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary TV special “Day of the Doctor” grossed a stunning $4.8 million at the U.S. box office.

Your favorite mom-and-pop a cappella competition show is back in less than two weeks, and it’s time to get ready for the doo-wop.
The Sing-Off‘s unique sound is a mix of old and young, classic and new; and this exclusive clip of the premiere episode, airing Dec. 9, is the show at its most endearing. Street Corner Rennaissance, the oldest group in the competition, manages to even out-charm those 1D moppets, putting a soulful spin on One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” in their debut performance.
Judge Shawn Stockman is so impressed, he’s compelled to get up and give a round of hugs to the gentlemen of SCR. You better believe I’d be giving them hugs too, if only to see if some of their cool would rub off on me. Check out sneak peak below:
