Kevin Murphy On RiffTrax's Return To National Geographic
Have you ever thought to yourself that TV would be more interesting with a commentary track? Well, the folks at National Geographic did.

They've once again enlisted the kings of aftermarket commentary - Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, collectively known as RiffTrax - to lend their gentle wit to two hours of NatGeo Wild programs.

Total Riff Off airs tonight, and Kevin recently dropped in from back East to talk to us about RiffTrax's second NatGeo go-around as well as the recent RiffTrax Live show.

The guys started December off with their usual RiffTrax Live holiday show,...

'Transporter: The Series': Frank Spotnitz Explains The Changes O
If you watched last week's season two premiere of Transporter: The Series, you probably had a lot of questions. Thankfully, we have answers.

Frank Spotnitz is the man who's now driving (pun intended) Transporter, and he also has a track record as one of the best creative minds in television. He's responsible for some of the most memorable episodes of The X-Files, and also helped lay the groundwork of a little show called Strike Back. On Monday, Frank took the time to walk us through the journey of Transporter from season one to season two, and explain some of the show's big changes.

Lacey Chabert Has Holiday Spirit In 'The Tree That Saved Christm
She melted our hearts in The Color of Rain, and got stuck on an airplane in Non-Stop. Now Lacey Chabert is helping us ring in the holidays with one of the season's first original films, UP's The Tree That Saved Christmas. We snagged a few minutes with Lacey last week to discuss the movie and her own holiday traditions.

In The Tree That Saved Christmas, Lacey plays Molly Logan, a hard-working woman chasing a writing career in the big city, waiting for her big break while toiling as the assistant to the CEO of a major publishing company.

Molly is surprised when the Christmas tree she orders...

Executive Producer Olivier Bibas Previews 'Transporter: The Seri
Transporter: The Series has been the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the season - and it's back tonight, as TNT rolls directly from last week's jaw-dropping cycle finale into the show's second go-around. Things are different for Frank Martin this time around, though, so we spoke to executive producer Olivier Bibas to get some insight into what's changed and how this fantastic show came together.

Olivier is managing director of Atlantique Productions, the French production company behind Transporter as well as a number of other international hits such as Jo, Borgia and Death In Paradi...

'Transporter: The Series' Season Finale Preview

'Transporter: The Series' Season Finale Preview And New Behind T
Frank Martin will face his biggest showdown yet in Saturday's Transporter: The Series season finale - and audiences will see action like you've never seen before on television.

So far this season, viewers have watched Frank (Chris Vance) deal with countless henchmen and tough guys determined to stand in the way of his deliveries. He's also had a poison capsule injected into his neck, driven with a live bomb in the back seat, and most recently, set a plane on fire by throwing his phone into one of the engines.

But in "Cherchez La Femme," things get even more dangerous for Frank when his la...

'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'

'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'
She's the woman that Huck can't let go of, no matter how hard she tries to make him. The character of Kim has been breaking Huck's heart (and the audience's) since her first appearance on Scandal way back in season two, and for that we can thank actress Jasika Nicole, who brings her to life.

We had the opportunity to talk to Jasika last week about what it's like to play the emotionally wound up Kim (not easy), plus discuss how she was able to move forward from her best-known role as Astrid Farnsworth on Fringe.

"I did [my] first episode [of Scandal] and it was kind of like a dream," she e...

Laura Spencer Doubles Her Success In 'Big Bang Theory' And 'Bones'

Laura Spencer Doubles Her Success In 'Big Bang Theory' And 'Bone
What's better than a recurring part on one hit TV show? How about recurring parts on two hit TV shows?

That's what's happened for actress Laura Spencer, who not only plays Raj's girlfriend Emily Sweeney on CBS's The Big Bang Theory, but also wears the lab coat of intern Jessica Warren on FOX's Bones. That means on any given Thursday, more than 20 million TV viewers could be seeing her.

We caught up with Laura last week to get a little dish on each series, talk about how she pulls off double duty, and ask her how she's going to program her DVR on Thursday nights.

After all, what's a girl ...

Early Preview: SyFy's '12 Monkeys'

Early Preview: Aaron Stanford Mesmerizes In SyFy's '12 Monkeys'
Aaron Stanford electrifies in SyFy's reboot of Bruce Willis' 1995 action flick, '12 Monkeys.' It is rare in a pilot for an actor to hit a character so completely and so perfectly. However, in '12 Monkeys,' Aaron amazingly hits every single possible nuance, note and facet of his character from start to finish. He was great as nerdy hacker Birkhoff in 'Nikita,' but in '12 Monkeys,' he's mesmerizing. During New York Comic Con, I caught a sneak preview of the pilot episode.

At the basic level, '12 Monkeys' follows a post-apocalyptic earth in the year 2043. Desperate to avoid a population-reduc...

Jeff Eastin Previews The Final Season Of 'White Collar'
New York's classiest crime show is about to come to an end. Tonight is the premiere of White Collar, kicking off the USA hit's sixth and final season. To help us say goodbye to Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke and the gang, we recruited creator and showrunner Jeff Eastin, who spoke with us about the decision to end the series and how things have changed since its premiere five years ago.

What made this the right time to wrap things up? "You can probably guess it was never the creator's idea to wind it down," he laughed. "For USA, I've got another show on their network, and I think the network's s...

Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity
CBS's Mom - a 2014 People's Choice Award Favorite New TV Comedy nominee - is back for its second season tonight, continuing the dysfunctional but well-meaning escapades of the Plunkett family. We recently caught up with Sadie Calvano, who plays Christy's (Anna Faris) daughter Violet, to ask her what laughs and lessons are coming in season two.

The new episodes don't pick up immediately after last season's surprisingly touching finale. "We ended last season with Violet giving away her baby," she explained. "In season two, you see Violet dealing with the ramifications of that decision. She's...
