'Nashville's' Nick Jandl On Love Triangles And Playing Doctor
Nick Jandl is certainly doing his part to keep Nashville interesting. As Dr. Caleb Rand, he's not only treating Deacon (Charles Esten) but getting between Scarlett and Gunnar (Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio). We caught up with Nick last week to ask him about the love triangle, his musical background and what it's like for him to portray a doctor on TV.

SPOILER ALERT: If you're not caught up on the current season of Nashville, this interview contains discussion about what's ahead in the remaining episodes of season three.

For Nick, the entire Nashville experience has been a pleasant surprise...

Terrence Howard & Ex-Wife Square Off Over Money

Terrence & Michelle Howard
The success of the FOX show "Empire" could cost Terrence Howard some money. The actor's ex-wife, Michelle Howard, is seeking a cut of his paycheck from the hit series.

The couple divorced in May 2013, and Michelle reportedly receives $5,800 per month from her ex. However, new documents obtained by TMZ.com reveal she is entitled to 21 percent of anything the actor made over $62,500 in the first three months of 2015.

Terrence filmed three episodes of "Empire" this year, for which he earned $125,000 each. For Michelle, that equals a $65,000 pay out.

Terrence plays the king of hip-hop, Lucio...

'Better Call Saul' Penultimate Episode Impresses

March 31st, 2015 10:05am EDT
'Better Call Saul' Recap: 'Pimento' Charges Towards An Epic Seas
Well this is weird. "Better Call Saul" was guaranteed a Season Two right around the time the first season started filming (at least as far as we can tell). You'd think Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould and the rest would have at least a vague mapping of where the full two seasons are headed. Right?

Except "Pimento," this season's penultimate episode (also, the caviar of the South), plays very much like a series finale.

By the end of "Pimento," Saul is fuming, having been told by his brother that he's "not a real lawyer" and that he's just Slippin' Jimmy with a fake online degree. Saul takes off...

‘Shameless’ Struggles Between Comedy And Darkness

March 30th, 2015 10:31am EDT
'Shameless' Season 5 Episode 11 Review 'Drugs Actually'
Shameless doesn't always find the right balance between dark comedy and pure darkness. This season is a prime example of the balance being off kilter. The first three seasons always found the perfect formula for being fun and heartbreaking. For every plot about Debbie kidnapping a baby, there was Fiona fighting her parents for custody of the kids. Season 4 was far too depressing, with the lighthearted plots being overshadowed by Fiona's downfall. This season feels like the writers are trying hard to course correct by bringing the fun back to the show, but without any of the same heart as be...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Undisclosed Recipients' - Don
So the State's Attorney's election is over - so now what? That's the big question at the heart of this week's episode of The Good Wife, "Undisclosed Recipients," which between the post-election drama and another hacking problem, feels like it's going back to some of the same plot wells.

In what could've been a jumping-off point to start something fantastic for the remainder of the season, ultimately the biggest takeaway for the audience is to be more careful with one's emails.

Everyone at Florrick, Agos & Lockhart is celebrating Alicia's victory for two seconds before their motivations be...
