Creepy new Fringe finale poster released

The last ever episode of Fringe is just days away, so Fox is stepping up the publicity with this creepy promo poster...

We've seen the promo trailer, now a disturbing new image arrives for the two-hour Fringe finale, due to air this Friday in the US and early Saturday morning in the UK and Ireland.

Entitled An Enemy of Fate, the one hundredth and final episode of Fringe comes directed and written by showrunner J.H Wyman, and sees Walt and co. face off against The Observers in an epic battle for the fate of mankind.

As posters go, this one's startlingly reminiscent of Magritte's The Son of Man, if you imagine a levitating apple just about where the nosebleed is...

CNN's Zucker Backs Piers Morgan Taking Stand on Gun Control

New CNN president Jeff Zucker said at a meeting for CNN employees that he supports Piers Morgan's decision to speak out against U.S. gun laws, Politico reports.

Morgan has called for tighter gun control laws since the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., a month ago. The backlash to Morgan's stand has included a petiton -- dismissed by the White House -- calling for the British-born Morgan to be deported.

During a town-hall meeting with staff, Politico said, Zucker was asked whether CNN employees should express opinions. Zucker said he was in favor of it when appropriate, citing Morgan's case.

That doesn't necessarily mean CNN is breaking with its longstanding practice of not expressing opinions in its news stories. Morgan is a host, not an anchor or reporter.

It also does not appear from Politico's reporting that Zucker was taking a stand on gun control. He seems to have backed Morgan's right to express an opinion without necessarily agreeing with that opinion.

'Homeland' star Damian Lewis confirmed for 'Top Gear' appearance

Homeland star Damian Lewis has been confirmed as a special guest for the 19th series of BBC Two's Top Gear.

The British actor, who won a Golden Globe for his role as Sergeant Nicholas Brody at the weekend, will take part in the show's 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' feature.

Lewis will be interviewed by host Jeremy Clarkson and then take a drive on the Top Gear test track.

Previous celebrities who have impressed with top speeds on the show include Matt LeBlanc, Simon Cowell, Ellen MacArthur, Jimmy Carr, Rowan Atkinson and Michael Fassbender.

Top Gear returns for its 19th series on Sunday, January 27 at 8pm on BBC Two.

Features expected in the new series include a road trip across the US in the new SRT Viper, a Lexus LFA and an Aston Martin Vanquish, a race from Wembley to Milan to watch a football match, and James May rallying in a Bentley Continental GT, driven by ex-Mini WRC driver Kris Meeke.

There will also be an Africa special where Clarkson, Hammond and May buy a station wagon and have to drive to the source of the Nile.

'Honey Boo Boo' Star Reveals HIV-Positive Status

Lee Thompson, one of the stars of TLC's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," says in an interview with an Atlanta magazine that he is HIV-positive.

In an interview with Fenuxe, Thompson -- who is called "Uncle Poodle" on the show -- says that he was diagnosed in May.

"I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me," Thompson told the site. "I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it. I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do."

Thompson's ex is currently serving a five-year sentence because of the deception, Thompson told the site.

"I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest," Thompson said. "I don’t have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself."

A spokesman for TLC had no comment for TheWrap on Thompson's revelation.

"Boo Boo," the hit "Toddlers & Tiaras" offshoot, follows child beauty-pageant participant Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family in rural Georgia. Thompson is a recurring cast member.

Thompson offered a blunt assessment of those who have unsafe sex.

"They are damn fools!" Thompson said. "They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners."

Thompson told the site that he wants to use his celebrity status to combat bullying and promote safe sex -- and perhaps parlay his experience into a future TV gig.

"I want to have my own television show and highlight what it is like being gay in the south," Thompson said. "I think I have a good story to tell."

'Drop Dead Diva' Canceled by Lifetime

"Drop Dead Diva" has been dropped.

The series has been canceled by Lifetime after four seasons, the last of which ended in September.

An individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap that the cost of producing the series had become prohibitive, and that Lifetime had approached Sony Pictures Television, which produced the series, about coming up with creative ways to keep the series on the air, apparently to no avail.

Ratings-wise, the series had performed well. In combination with "Army Wives," "Drop Dead Diva" helped push Lifetime to the number one cable position on Sundays from 9 to 11 p.m. among the women 25-54 demographic last year.

"Drop Dead Diva" revolved around a shallow model who dies in a car crash and comes back to life in the body of a recently deceased lawyer who had led an altruistic life. Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho and Jackson Hurst starred on the series.

'Call the Midwife' Jessica Raine: 'Working on Doctor Who was magical'

Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine has spoken about her experiences working on the new series of Doctor Who.

Raine will guest in the upcoming run of the BBC show as a character called Emma Grayling.

Speaking to the Radio Times about her stint, Raine said: "[It is] very different from Midwife. On Doctor Who it was all mind machines and strobe lighting.

"But it was a magical experience and something I was very happy to do. It's a very different character and genre - you have to throw yourself into it and take it very seriously.

"I hadn't realised what an institution Doctor Who is. I got offered the part and didn't think that much about it. Then you go on set and you see this blue police telephone box, and suddenly the weight of what you're doing hits home."

She also praised Doctor Who's Matt Smith for the "darker edge" he has brought the long-running sci-fi series. "He's a brilliant actor. He has a very long career ahead of him," she said.

Raine's episode is expected to be titled 'Phantom of the Hex'.

TNT Orders Rebecca Romijn, Jon Tenney Private-Eye Series

"X-Men" star Rebecca Romijn and "The Closer" vet John Tenney will star in a new TNT private-eye series based on author David Baldacci's Sean King and Michelle Maxwell characters, the network said Tuesday.

The as-yet-untitled series, which has been given a 10-episode order, will revolve around a pair of unorthodox private detectives and former Secret Service agents who use their unique skills to solve crimes.

Maxwell (Romijn) is a formidable investigator with athletic prowess and Beltway connections who's determined to prove herself after being forced to resign from the Secret Service. King (played by Tenney), meanwhile, is a recovering alcoholic who was bounced from the Service after a candidate he was protecting was assassinated. Now a lawyer, he uses his legal insight to solve cases.

Michael O'Keefe and Chris Butler also star in the series, which is being produced by CBS Television Studios for summer 2013 premiere.

Shane Brennan ("NCIS") wrote the pilot, with "Third Watch" alum Grant Anderson executive-producing along with Brennan.

Lorraine Kelly gets Mark Wright confused with Alex Reid in interview

Michelle Keegan was left confused this morning during an interview with Lorraine Kelly.

The Coronation Street actress - who is rumoured to be dating former TOWIE star Mark Wright - was asked by Kelly about her relationship with Alex Reid.

An uncomfortable looking Keegan responded that she preferred to keep her private life to herself.

However, she later realised what Kelly had asked and joked about the mistake on Twitter.

She wrote: "Oh my god just realised what Lorraine asked me at the end of that interview.

"Alex Reid where the HELL did that come from?! Hahaha!!!! X."

Kelly apologised for the error, saying: "So sorry I had you going out with Alex Reid this morning - no wonder you looked shocked!!"

Keegan replied: "phahahahaha!!!! I know it was the 1st time I heard of that rumour! ;))) lovely seeing u today as always see u very soon. Xxx"

Michelle Keegan is said to have been dating Mark Wright since a holiday in Dubai earlier this month.

Keegan ended her engagement to The Wanted singer Max George in April 2012, before they announced their eventual split in July.

AMC's 'The Killing' Renewed for 3rd Season

AMC's "The Killing" isn't dead yet.

The drama has been renewed for a third season, the network and Fox Television studios, which produces the series, said Tuesday.

Veena Sud will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer for the 12-episode season, as will actors Mirielle Enos (who plays Sarah Linden) and Joel Kinnaman (Stephen Holder).

The new season, which begins production Feb. 25 in Vancouver, will focus on a new case, which will be resolved by the end of the season.

“‘The Killing’ from day one has been a truly original take on the crime drama. Veena Sud and the rest of the talented creative team are hard at work shaping the lives of Linden and Holder, portrayed by the terrific Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman," AMC president Charlie Collier said of the renewal. "We're so pleased to welcome back 'The Killing' for another season."

The new season of "The Killing" will pick up a year after Rosie Larsen's murder case -- which dominated the first two seasons -- is closed, with Linden no longer a detective but finding herself drawn back into the world of crime-solving when her partner's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden.

"The Killing" averaged 1.9 million total viewers over its first two seasons. However, the June 2012 second-season finale fell off in the ratings from its first season finale, drawing 1,9 million total viewers compared to the 2.3 million that tuned in to the series' Season Two finale.

AMC initially decided to pull the plug on the show a month after its second season ended.

"After much deliberation, we've come to the difficult decision not to renew ‘The Killing’ for a third season," the network said at the time. "AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast.”

ABC Pulls 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23,' 'Happy Endings' From Sunday Schedule

It appears that the great Sunday night experiment for ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23" and "Happy Endings" is over.

The two comedies, which were added to the network's Sunday night schedule, have been pulled from the Sunday roster, with a repeat of the reality series "Shark Tank" taking the 10 to 11 p.m. slot that the comedies previously occupied.

"Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B---," which regularly air Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30 p.m., respectively, began airing additional episodes on Sundays beginning Jan. 6 to replace the freshman drama "666 Park Avenue," which itself had been pulled from the schedule. (The network plans to air the remaining episodes of "666 Park Avenue" this summer.) The comedies were intended to run on Sundays through January,

However, neither show managed to find much of an audience in their new timeslots. On Jan. 13, "Happy Endings" matched a series low in the 18-49 demographic preferred by advertisers with a 1.0 rating/2 share, while "Don't Trust the B----," which stars Krysten Ritter (left) and James Van Der Beek, dropped 11 percent to a series low of 0.8/2.

By contrast, for their most recent Tuesday night airings, "Happy Endings" and "Don't Trust the B----" drew a 1.4/4 and 1.1/3, respectively.

Following Sunday's "Shark Tank," a Hallmark movie will air in the timeslot on the 27th. The slot will be filled with a "Modern Family" repeat and programming to be determined will fill the slot until ABC's new drama "Red Widow" takes over on March  3.

'Dancing on Ice': Anthea Turner suffers rib injury in training

Anthea Turner has reportedly suffered a rib injury during her Dancing on Ice training.

The TV presenter is said to have popped a rib in rehearsals, but hopes to battle through the pain in order to compete on Sunday night, reports The Sun.

Turner apparently spent yesterday in bed after she felt the bone "ping" out of place while rehearsing.

The source said: "Anthea popped a rib during her duel routine on Monday and has a hot water bottle on her ribs all day, but she hasn't missed any training - yet.

"She is really worried about it, as she is in a lot of pain, but she's a real trooper and is insisting that it will be all systems go for this weekend.

"Her attitude is that the show must go on, and she has told everyone she will be at training over the next few days, regardless of the rib injury."

Yesterday, Turner tweeted: "Lying on my bed with hot-water bottle strapped to my ribcage. Felt it and heard 1 ping Y/day PAIN!!!! (sic)."

Sunday's show will see Anthea Turner go up against Shayne Ward in a head-to-head duel.

Each duo will battle it out against a couple who scored similar results last week. Leaders Matt Lapinskas and Brianne Delcourt will go up against Gareth Thomas and Robin Johnstone.

One celebrity from each skate-off will be granted immunity by the judging panel - with five losers facing the public vote.

Graham Norton to host seven-hour chatshow marathon for Comic Relief?

Graham Norton will reportedly front a seven-hour chatshow marathon for Comic Relief later this year.

The talkshow host will book up to 50 guests and performers for the charity project in March, according to The Sun.

The show will reportedly take up BBC Three's entire schedule from 7pm until 2am.

It will also take on his usual Friday night show format, with guests being brought in and out all evening. Producers are also planning several surprises and twists.

David Walliams, Doctor Who's Matt Smith and Miranda Hart are among the stars named as possible guests.

A source said: "This will be the most exhausting thing Graham has ever done.

"Seven hours of live telly is no mean feat so Graham is booking people he knows will lift his spirits.

"There will be all the usual banter and silly clips and there will be some big set pieces too, which are being thrashed out now."

The project follows the marathon BBC Radio 1 broadcast by Chris Moyles and Dave Vitty in 2011, when they remained on air for over 50 hours.

Damian Lewis confirmed for 'Homeland' return

Damian Lewis will return to Homeland for its third season, it has been confirmed.

Executive producer Howard Gordon told TVLine that the actor will continue to play Nicholas Brody on the hit Showtime drama.

"He's alive so of course he'll be back," Gordon said. "One of the great challenges of next [season] is how he'll be back. But there's no doubt that he will be back."

Homeland's second season ended with Claire Danes's character Carrie Mathison helping Brody begin his new life as a fugitive.

Executive producer Alex Gansa had previously teased that Lewis's involvement in season three was "an open question".

"We had a much clearer picture of what the first two seasons would be than we do of what the third season would be," he said. "Damian's involvement and [the actors who play Brody's family] is very much up in the air."

Showtime boss David Nevins also hinted that Homeland could survive without Lewis.

Lewis won 'Best Actor In A Television Series (Drama)' at last night's Golden Globes for his role in Homeland. Co-star Danes won 'Best Actress In A Television Series (Drama)', while the show itself won 'Best Television Series (Drama)'.

'Arrow' exec on Colton Haynes debut: 'It's hopefully unexpected'

Colton Haynes will play an "unexpected" role on Arrow, show exec Marc Guggenheim has hinted.

On the CW drama, Teen Wolf star Haynes will play Roy Harper - the teen character who became the costumed sidekick of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in the original DC comics.

"Our interpretation of Roy is hopefully unexpected," Guggenheim told TV Guide. "Roy is from the Glades, which is part of Starling City that is the slum of the slums."

The streetwise Harper will become romantically involved with Oliver Queen's sister Thea (Willa Holland) in future episodes of the superhero series.

"Obviously he's from a very different side of the tracks from Thea," said Guggenheim. "So that gives us a fun dynamic to play around with. We're designing it to be a longer-term relationship."

Fringe actor Seth Gabel and Spartacus star Manu Bennett will also play guest roles on Arrow later in 2013.

The series returns to The CW in the US on January 16 and is back on Sky1 in the UK on January 21.

Jeremy Irons: 'Television Doesn't End With 'Downton Abbey''

Jeremy Irons wants American viewers to realize that "television doesn't end with 'Downton Abbey.'"

The British actor took several entertaining jabs at the popularity of the hit series Tuesday while promoting his PBS show, "Uncovering Shakespeare."

But he later offered a clarification that either negated his insults or amplified them, depending on your interpretation: He said he's never actually seen an episode of "Downton," which airs in the U.S. on PBS.

Irons, in a playful mood, spoke during a Television Critics Association panel in which he also took several deadpan digs at the French.

"What I'm really excited about with 'Shakespeare Uncovered' is we'll see some of the best British actors playing Shakespeare. What you can do is to open up to this huge American audience... show them that actually television doesn't end with 'Downton Abbey.' If you think that's good, then watch the Shakespeare productions. You'll see what real writing, what real stories, what real characters are about."

He added -- at the prodding of his "Shakespeare Uncovered" cohorts -- "We do love 'Downton Abbey.

But he went on to compare the show to a Ford Fiesta and Shakespeare to an Aston Martin.

"A Ford Fiesta will get you there and give you a good time. But actually an Aston Martin..." he said, as laughter drowned him out.

He later talked about the difficulty of performing Shakespeare: "It's practice, practice, practice with Shakespeare. You can't sort of mutter it in a sort of 'Downton Abbey' way."

A reporter asked for clarification: Was it fair to say Irons considers "Downton" a bit overrated?

WNET vice president of programming Stephen Segaller, seated beside Irons, seemed to dread the answer.

"If I shot myself now, would it create enough of a diversion?" he asked.

But Irons answered.

"I don't watch very much television," Irons said. "I've never seen 'Downton Abbey.' So I don't know what I'm talking about, basically. I'm sure it's splendid."

Irons also joked that the French of old often lost battles because they were more interested in looking good than fighting. A reporter joked that Irons probably wouldn't be vacationing in France anytime soon.

"As long as you undertstand them, you can deal with them," Irons said.

Irons also talked about the "nightmare" of starring in a play with your wife, which he said he once made the mistake of doing in "The Winter's Tale."

"There's no one to go home to and bitch about your leading lady," he said.

Irons is one of several actors -- including Ethan Hawke, Derek Jacobi, Trevor Nunn, Joely Richardson and David Tennant -- who will help examine the author's works in the series.

PBS to Air TED Talk on Education With Bill Gates, Geoffrey Canada

PBS will air the first TED Talk produced for television, an education special featuring Bill Gates, Geoffrey Canada and Sir Ken Robinson, the network announced.

"TED Talks Education" will air Tuesday, April 16, the same night PBS will air the film "The Central Park Five," about five young men falsely accused in an attack on a jogger in 1989.

Microsoft founder and philanthopist Gates, author and educator Robinson, and social activist and educator Canada will record the special on April 4 at the Harvey Theater at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Friday, April 4. It will be produced by WNET and Ted Talks.

TED (which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a nonprofit devoted to "ideas worth spreading." The group's TED Talks have become an online phenomenon thanks to their mix of data, video, humor and anecdotes to introduce innovative ideas.

Celeb Big Brother: Lacey Banghard gets naked again, Heidi goes berserk

Page 3 model Lacey Banghard stripped off naked in front of fellow housemate Heidi as she prepared to shower in the Celebrity Big Brother house last night (January 15).

The 20-year-old glamour model upset the ex-Hills star when she began to undress in front of her, causing Heidi to flee to the bedroom before branding her behaviour "super inappropriate" to husband Spencer Pratt and former Heartbeat actress Tricia Penrose.

Heidi added: "I don't wanna be around it, not around me and my husband."

Earlier in the week, a naked Banghard attempted to protect her modesty after forgetting her towel and emerging fully nude in the lounge to retrieve it.

Meanwhile, Spencer took a more laid-back approach to the naked drama unfolding in the house and applied a face mask to relax instead.

He added: "If it was a clear shower, maybe it's a big deal. I'm sure other people are showering naked."
