The simulcast of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special show “Day of the Doctor” is now just over a month away — unless, of course, you’ve popped ahead in your TARDIS to the future (in which case, NO SPOILERS!) Regardless, the BBC has just released the first batch of photos from the show, which feature current Doctor Matt Smith, former Doctor David Tennant, “mystery” Doctor John Hurt, Jenna Coleman, and Jemma Redgrave who plays the Brigadier’s daughter Kate Stewart.

NBC orders full season of 'The Blacklist'

Cross this one off your “will it last?” list.

NBC announced Friday that it has ordered nine more episodes of The Blacklist, the twisty “villain catching villains” procedural starring James Spader. The network had previously ordered 13 episodes of the drama; with this, it has committed to a full 22-episode season.

“The many layers of Red Reddington and his mysterious reasons for getting into bed with the FBI seem to be fascinating to fans of this show,” NBC Entertainment president Salke said in a press release. “With great talent like James Spader and Megan Boone on board, as well our stellar executive producers and the whole cast and crew, we believe this outstanding series will continue to make NBC a big destination on Monday nights.”

The big lead-in theory: Fall TV time slots trumping buzz

fall-tv-super-fun-night

So far, nearly every new show with big ratings this fall has something in common: An even bigger show airing right before it.

CBS’ The Crazy Ones and The Millers, NBC’s The Blacklist, ABC’s The Goldbergs and Super Fun Night were not the fall’s most buzzy titles and only The Blacklist averaged firmly positive reviews, according to Metacritic. But along with the sophomore season of NBC’s Chicago Fire, these shows have generated some of the best ratings we’ve seen so far this season while standing comfortably in the shadow of even larger lead-ins.

Crazy Ones and Millers had massive Big Bang Theory support, Blacklist and Chicago Fire benefited hugely from The Voice, Super Fun Night had back-up from Modern Family and Goldbergs is coming out of top-rated new drama Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — which was one of only two new shows at this point to really notably break out without the benefit of a larger opening act (the other is Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, which has a lead-in from Bones).

Which new TV show will be canceled first?

Who will be the chosen one?

We’re smack in the middle of the fall TV launch rush. Each show is birthed with the bright shining hope of lasting for five years on the air, or perhaps even more, followed by a luxuriant and lucrative after-life in syndication. Only a few will be lucky to survive to the end of the season. And just one will infamously become the First Cancelled Show of the Fall. Anybody remember which title first blinked off the grid last year? … Nope, not Fox’s The Mob Doctor. It was CBS’ Made In Jersey.

Vote below in our poll. There’s also the fall schedule for advanced players who want to take into account a show’s competition and lead-in. Since I don’t want to skew the post, I’m putting my guess on my Twitter feed. READ FULL STORY

Amber Tamblyn is no stranger to the realm of TV, but this time she’s in uncharted territory: sitcoms.

'Nashville' sneak peek: Rayna's life is in peril -- EXCLUSIVE

CHILLS!

That’s what we got when we watched the exclusive sneak peek below from next Wednesday’s season 2 premiere of Nashville.

In the video, we pick up right after last season’s terrible car wreck and see Deacon use his many, many muscles to drag an unconscious Rayna out of the car, all the while whispering sweet pleas for her to “wake up.” (Sob!)  And if that’s not enough of a heart-squeezing moment, we cut to the hospital, where we see Rayna in very rough shape to say the least… READ FULL STORY

Fall TV: Six toughest time slot battles (and which show will win)

It’s war! Next week broadcasters shove the bulk of their new shows into the spotlight and anxiously count how many viewers show up to watch. Even in this era of heavy DVR use, a show’s time slot still matters plenty — just ask NBC’s Revolution, which was hugely boosted whenever it ran behind original episodes of The Voice last season (or any show that runs against The Voice, for that matter). Here are six of the most interesting new top time-period battles this fall — and who we think will win.

Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher talk 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher are teaming up to clean up the streets with a new weapon: Laughter. From the producers of beloved small-town-government comedy Parks and Recreation comes the promising big-city-cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, an ensemble show starring Samberg as Jake Peralta, a young detective whose gift for solving cases is rivaled by his talent for clowning around, something that displeases his straitlaced, straight-faced new boss, Captain Ray Holt (Braugher). In EW’s Fall TV Preview issue, we visited the Brooklyn Nine-Nine set and spent some time interrogating the new partners in comedy crime before their big debut on Fox tonight at 8:30 p.m. Our critics have also named the show one of the best new series of the fall. Before you race to the newsstand to pick up the issue, though, step out of the vehicle and slowly place your hands on the scroll bar to check out these bonus quotes from the cast and series creators Michael Schur and Dan Goor.

'Glee' First Look: Does this mean Blaine and Kurt are [SPOILER]? -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Last season’s finale of Glee ended with Blaine (Darren Criss) contemplating proposing to soul mate Kurt (Chris Colfer). Well, we don’t know if he goes through with it or not, but based on this exclusive photo from the Sept. 26 premiere, the pair are getting along just fine.

But, Criss says, this is not Kurt accepting Blaine’s hand in marriage; he’s merely agreeing to date the former Warbler again. Blaine still pulls out all the stops for the wooing with a marching band accompanying him on The Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” (the two-part premiere is a tribute to the iconic British band). “Well, Glee never skimps,” Criss says of the elaborate number. “A simple question is not going to escape an elaborate gesture on Glee, that’s for sure.” What can Criss say about a potential Klaine engagement? Not much. Teases the actor: “There’s definitely going to be an answer to what Blaine is going to do within the first two episodes.”

'Revolution' sneak peek: 'The world is changed forever' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

REVOLUTION-CLIP.jpg

The nukes are off! And although Comic-Con attendees might already know the fate of those missiles, EW has an exclusive first look at what else season 2 holds for Revolution.

The first episode back will pick up right where we left off, with everyone trying to correct their mistakes. But that won’t last long before we jump forward in time — by three months, to be exact. So what’s different about this season? Well, other than introducing a small town in Texas (another walled city) and adding a “more fantastical edge,” it seems to be the same Revolution we know and love. Oh, but don’t forget about nervous breakdowns, murdering missions, refugee camps, and a potential “bigger force” at play. So it’s Revolution, but just with a “different little kick to it.”

Invasion of the Amells: A Q&A with The CW's best bloodline

Cousins Stephen Amell, 32, and Robbie Amell, 25, are used to having “Football Sundays” together, but starting Oct. 9, they’ll share something else: “Amell Wednesdays.”

The CW will air their action-packed dramas back-to-back (the returning Arrow at 8 p.m., followed by The Tomorrow People at 9 p.m.). We chatted with them for EW’s Fall TV Preview issue, on newsstands now. Read that Q&A to find out who’s shirtless in more episodes this season (so far) and where Robbie falls on the list of people Stephen will call to babysit (his wife, Cassandra Jean, is expecting their first child later this year). In the meantime, here’s more.
