Showtime will air a benefit concert featuring songs inspired by the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack, reports Deadline.

Called “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis,” the concert will take place Sunday in New York City’s The Town Hall and will benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation.

Showtime will broadcast the concert Friday, Dec. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The set list will feature songs from the movie, as well as music from the folk rock period of the ’60s.

Written and directed by the Coen brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis will be in limited release on Dec. 6.

'Dexter': Who's the best villain ever? Michael C. Hall and co-stars pick their favorite foes -- POLL

Dexter Morgan has been hiding in plain sight for eight seasons on Showtime, and throughout those years, a handful of people have challenged our antihero — but most didn’t live to tell the tale.

At last week’s PaleyFest farewell to Dexter, we asked the show’s cast and producer to name their favorite foes for the serial-killer-with-a-code. We heard one name quite a few times — the Dexter cast is still getting over the damage done by John Lithgow’s Arthur Mitchell, a.k.a. The Trinity Killer, in season 4 — but a few answers might surprise you (is Dexter’s ultimate antagonist actually Deb?).

We’ll have to wait until Sunday’s finale to see where current contender Oliver Saxon — a.k.a. Daniel Vogel, a.k.a. The Brain Surgeon — ends up on the list. For now, let’s see what the cast has to say:

Watch 'Masters of Sex' pilot online now -- NSFW VIDEO

In Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Michael Sheen’s William Masters and Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson research the science of human sexuality — so the show should be right at home on pay cable.

But just how racy will things get? Now we have a better idea, since Showtime has posted the pilot to YouTube more than a week before the series premieres. Watch it online now:

'Homeland' premiere leaks online

Could this be the work of Abu Nazir’s ghost?

Homeland fans — and Showtime — were taken by surprise yesterday, when a pirated version of the drama’s third season premiere leaked online. The episode is set to air at the end of the month.

TorrentFreak writes that within hours of the file’s posting, 100,000 people had downloaded it — not surprising, considering Homeland was one of 2012′s most-pirated TV shows. Though Showtime has distributed press screeners of the episode, Deadline notes that the leaked episode is reportedly a workprint missing both visual effects and opening credits, indicating that it may not have been ripped from a screener. (Update: NPR writer Linda Holmes says that Showtime’s  press screeners did lack effects and credits.) The cable net has not yet responded to EW’s request for comment.

Homeland returns to Showtime Sept. 29, seven days after the 65th annual Primetime Emmys — where last year’s Best Drama is up for 10 awards.

Joshua Jackson commits to 'The Affair' for Showtime

Fringe and Dawson’s Creek alum Joshua Jackson is making the jump to Showtime for the cable channel’s pilot The Affair. Jackson will play a Long Island cowboy (that’s not a metaphor, his character actually manages a ranch) in the drama that deals with spouses, wandering eyes, and the effects of an affair on two families.


Michael Sheen AND Lizzy Caplan? You're going to want to watch NSFW 'Masters of Sex' trailer

Call Salt-N-Pepa: Showtime has decided it’s time to talk about sex.

Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, tells the story of real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, whose controversial — to say the least — research helped kick off the sexual revolution. For those interested, Masters and Johnson’s work picked up after Alfred Kinsey’s research (which was the subject of its own 2004 movie, starring Liam Neeson).

“He is a brilliant scientist out of touch with his own feelings, and she is a single working mother ahead of her time. The series chronicles their unusual lives, romance, and unlikely pop culture trajectory,” per Showtime. And, in case the title didn’t give it away, their “unusual lives” are obviously full of NSFW moments. You’ve been warned. Watch below:


'Homeland' sends 'Signals,' releases season 3 teaser -- VIDEO

In a sneak peek as mysterious as what is really going on in Nick Brody’s head, Showtime has released a preview for the upcoming third season of Homeland. The teaser, which is really only a glimpse at the tone of next season rather than a preview of its look and feel, includes audio snippets of characters such as the now-fugitive Brody (Damien Lewis) and lovable curmudgeon Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Notably absent is the voice of the erratically brilliant (or brilliantly erratic?) Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).

Watch the teaser trailer entitled “Signals” below:

'Web Therapy,' 'Who Do You Think You Are?': Dan Bucatinsky on 'Friends' reunion, Kelly Clarkson's roots

'Ray Donovan' renewed for second season

Liev Schreiber stars as a guy who makes the problems of L.A.’s elite disappear, while Jon Voight plays his devious recently paroled father (Voight introduces the video below and says Showtime’s “Brace Yourself” slogan with just slightly more enthusiasm than if he was at gunpoint). Also: This online version is edited for content, so expect blurred boobies. Ray Donovan premieres after the final season debut of Dexter on June 30:

'Nurse Jackie' renewed for sixth season

Edie Falco will be returning to her Emmy-award winning role as emergency room nurse Jackie Peyton on Showtime’s critically-acclaimed dark comedy series Nurse Jackie.

'The Big C' review: The paradox of Cathy Jamison's tart yet flavorless 'hereafter'

The Big C is bringing closure to cancer-stricken Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) with a four-episode miniseries. Subtitled hereafter, even the opening credits have a nostalgic air, scrapbooking through Cathy’s journey through illness. Gone along with her tranquil opening swim in her home pool, the too-good-to-be-true serenity of season’s 3 Puerto Rican escape (when Cathy quite literally jumped ship to make a new life with a fisherman) is quickly overwritten. Like a rock plunking into the aforementioned pool and creating ripples, the sometimes jarring opener was fun to watch at times, though viewers’ pleasure is slightly diminished by the fact that we’ve spent three seasons sympathizing with the perspective under the water.
