Gone but not forgotten, Lee Thompson Young and his character will receive a proper sendoff in the fifth season of Rizzoli & Isles. The actor, who played detective Barry Frost on the TNT drama, committed suicide last August. On Wednesday, series star Angie Harmon tweeted that he will be honored in the first two episodes of season 5:

“I’m pretty much the go-to guy when it comes to sex stuff,” Josh Henderson says with a laugh. And suddenly, we’re happy Dallas is back!
When Season 3 kicks of Feb. 24 (9 p.m. ET on TNT), we quickly learn why Henderson’s John Ross is cheating on new wife Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) with Emma (Emma Bell), who you’ll recall also lives at Southfork. “He only knows how to do business one way, and that’s how JR taught him. It’s like history repeating itself,” Henderson says. “He basically justifies things: ‘I’m doin’ this for us.’ But what Pamela doesn’t know is what this is. He doesn’t want her to find out, obviously. But at the end of the day, stuff’s gonna come crashing down, and I think it’s gonna surprise the audience what ends up happening. It’s pretty dangerous.”
While Henderson jokes that the show is “gettin’ a little weird this season, in a good way,” executive producer Cynthia Cidre looks at it as turning things up to 11. “We decided, let’s just embrace the fun of it,” she says. “There’s definitely a lot more sex. We have a few fistfights, but no one’s landed in the pool yet.” (We also have one pregnancy and two shootings to look forward to.) READ FULL STORY
Those Atlanta housewives better watch their weaves, because a new group of women are looking to take over the South, one country-music-filled dream at a time.
TNT has unveiled the cast for its new show Private Lives of Nashville Wives, but from the looks of this exclusive sneak peek, it doesn’t look like these ladies have much to hide.
My eye is on Jenny, a Midwest girl. She really doesn’t like skinny bitches who never eat and think they’re fat. And the best part is she will say that to said skinny bitches’ faces (and make out with their husband). The other women, including Cuban American identical twin sisters, a former soap star and a Hooters girl who married a man 23 years her senior, don’t seem to like her very much (it’s probably because she’s not a blonde — instant housewife-outcast status).
Check out the butt-slapping, gun-blazing, guitar-playing preview below:

Fans of TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles can rejoice: Looks like Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles will be back for another summer. The juicy procedural that stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander consistently produced amazing numbers — it’s ranked #1 out of all summer’s basic cable television shows with an average of 8.4 million viewers.
TNT also renewed Major Crimes and Perception, along with the previously announced renewal of Falling Skies. Major Crimes averages more than 6.7 million viewers while Perception snags around 5.6 million viewers per episode.

'Falling Skies' Comic-Con panel: Footage of what's next for Karen and how the cast sees their characters dying
The Project: TNT’s Falling Skies
The Panel: Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Connor Jessup (Ben), “the devastatingly handsome” Drew Roy (Hal) — as moderator and Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Wil Wheaton called the actor — Colin Cunningham (Pope), “the face-meltingly beautiful” Sarah Carter (Maggie) — another Wheaton descriptor — Doug Jones (Cochise), executive producer Remi Aubuchon, and director/executive producer Greg Beeman
Footage screened: The audience was treated to a brief clip from the upcoming July 21 episode. Karen has Tom on a torture table in a creepy, alien place, not unlike the harnessing factory from season 2. The professor-turned-soldier tells Karen, “Go to hell.” She leans in and whispers ominously, “If you haven’t noticed, this is hell.” Once Tom manages to get the upper hand in the situation, he puts a gun to Karen’s forehead. When he’s sure he’s gotten all the information about Anne and Lexi he can from her (which isn’t much), he shoots her point blank! That shocking end to the clip had the audience gasping in a collective “ohhhh!” followed by cheers. Let’s hope Hal’s ex-girlfriend-turned-formidable-alien-ally is really dead — or does Falling Skies have a trick up its sleeve?
At the end of the panel, there was also a screening of a sizzle reel with footage from the remaining episodes of season 3. Moment to most look forward to from that: A high-octane train sequence with Pope leaning off the side of the train, firing off a rifle at what only can be enemy aliens.

Ever since an alien parasite wormed its way into the head of the oldest Mason brother, Hal has been creeping out viewers all season long on Falling Skies. Tonight the TNT sci-fi show ramped up the creep-out and the shocker factor of the evil Hal storyline.
SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read on if you do not want to find out what happened in Sunday’s episode of Falling Skies, “Be Silent and Come Out.” READ FULL STORY
During Falling Skies‘ first two seasons, fans watched Hal Mason grow from high school lacrosse hotshot to alien invasion survivor trying to prove himself to his protective dad, to seasoned soldier in the fight for the planet. Now, in season 3, Drew Roy, who plays Hal on the TNT sci-fi series, has flexed some more acting muscles with the ever-creepier and unsettling “evil Hal,” as he’s come to be known since an alien parasite wormed its way into his head at the end of season 2.
Falling Skies ups the ante for the “evil Hal” storyline in tonight’s episode, “Be Silent and Come Out.” When EW chatted with Roy, the actor provided a few teases for the episode. Read on to learn what you can expect from tonight’s episode and more about Hal in season 3 thus far, then come back to EW.com after tonight’s episode for Roy’s memories from shooting the intense “Be Silent and Come Out.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Last summer, you told us that you watched The Shining and Take Shelter in preparation for shooting season 3, but at that point you couldn’t reveal why. Now that we’ve seen what’s going on with “evil Hal” this season, what can you tell us about why those films were helpful?
DREW ROY: With The Shining, I just wanted to see how Jack Nicholson had that deterioration take over him from when he first stepped into the hotel to when he loses it and attacks his family. It felt like it was a similar theme going on with Hal in that he was being controlled by the aliens, but from the outside it was just like some mental problem he was going through. Anytime you can learn from a great film, it’s worth watching. But you never want to copy what somebody does, so it’s more of seeing how that path was laid and then take that into consideration as you move forward with your own performance. READ FULL STORY
TNT has picked up a fourth season of Falling Skies.
The Sunday drama that stars Noah Wyle is averaging 5.8 million viewers and ranks as basic cable’s No. 1 scripted series with adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 for the summer-to-date.
TNT will air the fourth 10-episode next summer. Falling Skies also stars Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Carter.
Major Crimes is staging a major classic TV reunion.
EW has learned that TV (and all-around) stars Tim Conway (The Carol Burnett Show), Paul Dooley (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Ron Glass (Barney Miller), Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Marion Ross (Happy Days) are all set to appear in an episode of the crime drama, set to air in August.
Per the story line, the quintet will play a group of outspoken residents at an apartment complex, who all once worked together on a 1970s crime drama (called Prognosis: Homicide!). In the episode, the tenants help Major Crimes solve a case involving the death of a rather unpopular neighbor.

It’s a sunny late September day on the Vancouver set of alien invasion series Falling Skies, and director Greg Beeman is wishing there were more wind.
The cast and crew of the TNT sci-fi show are working on a long tracking shot of the Falling Skies heroes cleaning up after a battle in their home base of Charleston, where an American flag, for now, hangs limp on a pole in the center of town.
“I want that American flag to furl,” Beeman says. “Is it ‘furl’ or ‘unfurl’?” A crew member sitting next to him in video village assures him they want the flag to unfurl. The energetic director claps and chants, “Unfurl, baby, unfurl” before adding, “Raise it really quickly so it catches the wind and flows real pretty.”
Beeman commits several takes to making that flag in the wind a cinematic opening to the long shot through Charleston, but it’s about more than making it look “pretty” — the American flag is also part of some essential imagery for a show that has, since its beginning, loosely alluded to the American Revolutionary War. Humans find themselves fighting on their own turf for independence from aliens. When various infrastructures crumble after the invasion, for the survivors whose story started in Boston, the American flag remains “an iconic and tangible symbol of who they are and what they’re fighting for,” showrunner Remi Aubuchon said.
That nod to the Revolutionary War continues to evolve in season 3 — which premieres on TNT tonight — when the show picks up seven months after the cliffhanger of last summer’s finale: A new alien species called the Vohm has arrived, and they become Falling Skies’ own version of the French.

During last week’s Upfronts presentations, Turner networks TNT and TBS announced that they will become the first entertainment networks to live stream content nationwide across multiple platforms 24/7. Cable subscribers will be able to watch a simulcast of the two networks’ programming via apps currently called TNT and TBS that will soon be rebranded as Watch TNT and Watch TBS.
Turner (which, like EW, is owned by TimeWarner) already streams live content for its networks CNN, HLN, and Cartoon Network, though only CNN and HLN stream 24/7. News and sports were among the first types of programming Turner made available live. Jeremy Legg, Turner SVP of business development and multi-platform distribution told EW that “it got to the point where we felt like the market was mature enough that we bring the next set of content online. So our general entertainment networks were the next logical place to begin streaming. This is in some ways the last set of streaming that we’re doing rather than the first…. It’s obvious to us that consumers want to be able to access our content on these other platforms.” READ FULL STORY
