Brandon Routh joins 'Arrow' as The Atom

Brandon Routh is trading in his blue and red tights for another pair of blue and red tights. EW has confirmed that the Superman Returns actor has booked a recurring role in Arrow‘s third season as Ray Palmer, a.k.a. The Atom.

According to TVLine, Ray Palmer, an “unparalleled scientist and inventor,” is Queen Consolidated’s new owner and has mysterious plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division. He is rumored to be a love interest for Felicity.

In the comics, Ray Palmer/The Atom has the power to alter the size of his body and can shrink down to subatomic levels. This is not the character’s first live-action appearance: John Kassir portrayed the character in the failed 1997 CBS pilot/TV movie Justice League of America. The Atom has also been featured in both the Young Justice and Justice League Unlimited animated series.

The Atom is the second DC Comics superhero to join Arrow in its third season. As was previously reported, Devon Aoki was cast as the classic DC Comics hero Katana.

Arrow premieres on the CW on Wednesday, October 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Teaser for 'Boardwalk Empire's final season warns 'all empires must fall'

Last night, HBO released the first teaser trailer for Boardwalk Empire‘s upcoming fifth and final season, which is set to begin in September. While the 37-second trailer doesn’t give much away about the upcoming season, it does warn fans that “all empires must fall.” It also features several shots of Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) pensively looking out at things: the water, the Onyx, the distance. After a flurry of other short and nondescript clips from the upcoming season, the trailer settles down on Nucky saying, “The trick’s to stay alive long enough to cash out”—and then ends with the phrase “No one goes quietly.”

Check out the teaser trailer below.

'Jane the Virgin' extended trailer: She's having a baby -- VIDEO

“Accidentally artificially inseminated” sounds more like the hook of a Saturday Night Live sketch than the premise of an upcoming CW series. For doubters, the network has released an extended trailer for the upcoming dramedy Jane the Virgin, which tries to sell the show a little more strongly than simply saying, “trust us.”

Based on the popular Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, the U.S. version of Jane stars Gina Rodriguez (Filly Brown) as a hard-working, devout Latina who is kind of hoping her boyfriend proposes — though she’s a little worried he’ll get down on one knee so she’ll finally agree to do the deed. When a mix-up at the OB-GYN leads to that artificial insemination plot line, Jane must choose whether to keep the baby — and whether to let the handsome father into her life.

Check out the extended trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Fall's five toughest time slot battles (and which shows will win)

gotham-big-bang-theory.jpg

With 25 new shows flooding the broadcast schedule this fall — and networks making all sorts of crafty time slot changes for existing shows — the TV chessboard has once again been dramatically rearranged. Let’s run down some of the most intriguing new rivalries in the making and determine–

What? What did you say? “Time slots don’t matter”?! Okay; usually, now’s the time I’d explain why that assumption is wrong. Yet because DVR playback and streaming have become so prominent, even those who are paid to obsessively dissect broadcast network scheduling strategy are agreeing that time period almost doesn’t matter nowadays. Except, of course, those times when it does — like how The Voice is used to help fuel The Blacklist, or how The Big Bang Theory seems to crush rival comedies into only having five seasons and no movie. But even if the impact of shows on other shows has waned considerably, somebody has to win each of these slots. So let’s have some fun and look at some of this year’s most intriguing showdowns (the full fall schedule is below for reference): READ FULL STORY

The CW's new fall shows (all two of them!): A snap judgment (and a punt)

The CW apparently likes what The CW does, because TV’s YA fantasy aisle isn’t making radical changes to its fall lineup. Just two new shows and a scheduling shift, with The Originals moving to Mondays. But count me among those bummed that The Tomorrow People became a thing of the past too soon: I admired the perspective and the storytelling of the network’s take on super-powered outsiders, especially in its early going. That said, I like the looks of the superhero saga that aspires to fill the void… READ FULL STORY

100 most-watched shows on broadcast TV

With the year almost over, it’s time to take stock over what shows brought the most viewers — and which ones didn’t. The No. 1 show shouldn’t surprise you (who can deny the power of Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly?) but it’s nice to see a newbie in the Top 10 (way to go, James Spader!).

Here are the Top 100 most-watched shows of the fall. (Survey dates are from Sept. 23 to Dec. 15). Remember, Persons 2+ isn’t the coveted advertiser demo, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a show that millions upon millions like to watch. READ FULL STORY

Capsule TV Reviews: Give These Shows a Second Chance

The-Crazy-Ones-Review.jpg

We weren’t so sure about this crop of five new fall series — but to our surprise, they’ve ripened quite nicely.

When they debuted, we thought we might hate them. The ditzy blondes. The malevolent horsemen. The cranked-up-to-11 scenes of Robin Williams’ improv. But as these fall TV series we doubted developed beyond their pilot episodes, they began to grow on us: We laughed at uterus jokes and rooted for telekinetically gifted teens. Here’s what changed our minds. READ FULL STORY

'Doctor Who': Check out a new webisode with some old enemies -- VIDEO

Following last week’s “The Night of the Doctor” webisode the BBC has released to iTunes another mini-tale ahead of this Saturday’s 50th-anniversary special show. The new story — ominously titled “The Last Day” — doesn’t feature the Doctor himself but does boast some familiar faces. Did I say “faces”? That may not have been quite the word I was looking for.

'Doctor Who' shocker! Ex-Time Lord actor reprises role in 50th anniversary minisode -- VIDEO

Are you a fan of Doctor Who? Then you need to stop what you’re doing  — be it driving a car, flying a plane, or talking about how you didn’t sexually harass a member of your mayoral staff — and watch the just-released video below, which contains a big surprise and sets up the forthcoming 50th anniversary special show, which debuts November 23.

I’ll say no more, except that it does indeed feature a surprise appearance by a former Time Lord actor and…Argh, I’ve said too much already!

They’re the Unlucky 7: New broadcast shows that have tanked in the ratings. They’re not the only freshman flops this fall, but these are the seven with the most creatively intriguing face-plants.

From NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show to ABC’s Betrayal, here’s our list of seven deadly snores. Starting with … READ FULL STORY
