HBO’ Developing ‘Game Change’ Sequel ‘Double Down’: Barack Obama Vs. Mitt Romney

The moment Alaska governor Sarah Palin first came to the world stage as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections, we knew that her larger-than-life personality would become the stuff of parody and portrayal from years to come. Once we finished laughing at Tina Fey's dead-on impression, the tone turned serious as HBO's 'Game Change' garnered multiple Emmys with Julianne Moore in the lead role.

Now, the original 'Game Change' writers have begun work on a sequel covering the 2012 elections between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, titled 'Double Down: Game Change 2012,' and guess what HBO wants to do with it?

‘True Blood’ Season 6: Robert Patrick Joins as Series Regular

Sure, we were sad to hear that ABC opted not to renew 'Last Resort,' which maintained relatively meager rating in its initial run despite being recieved as one of the better offerings of the season. But one good show's loss is another of our favorite's gain, as the cancellation frees up series star Robert Patrick to join 'True Blood' full time! The one-time 'Terminator 2' star will return to Bon Temps as Jackson Herveaux, father to Alcide and newly minted series regular, but does that mean the werewolves will have a bigger story?

‘The Newsroom’ Season 2 Adds Recurring Mitt Romney Staff Role

For as much drama as HBO's 'The Newsroom' creates around Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy and his supporting players, it's easy to forget that the show roots itself in real-life news events by keeping a timeline several months behind our own. Previously, we'd heard of a few guest stars joining the second season of HBO's buzzy Aaron Sorkin drama, but the latest confirms that former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will play a large role in season 2! So, are you ready to meet our new recurring cast member, a link to the famous one-percenter?

‘True Blood’ Season 6 Adds New Faerie Love Interest For Sookie

We've seen the same old story a hundred different times, whether it's a young woman torn between her love for two brooding vampires, or a vampire and a werewolf, or, in 'True Blood's' case, all three. But we've got to hand it to the writers of 'True Blood' season 6 for making the old dog do some new tricks. We've just learned that 'True Blood's sixth year has just cast English actor Robert Kazinsky as a new love interest for Sookie Stackhouse, with a surprising twist: he's a faerie!

HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ Season 2 Casts Patton Oswalt, Rosemarie DeWitt

Well, alright then.  Comedian Patton Oswalt's TV career definitely seems to be taking off to new heights, first with a recurring stint on FX's gunslinger drama 'Justified,' and now as we've learned, another recurring gig on HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom.'  Oswalt isn't alone however, as Rosemary DeWitt has also been tasked for a recurring role, but who will the former 'United States of Tara' stars (yes, both) play?

Louis C.K. Returns to HBO for 2013 Stand-Up Special

As intriguing as it was to see acclaimed comedian Louis C.K. take on 'SNL' hosting duties for the first time a few weeks back, fans of the comic's FX series 'Louie' still lament the fact that the show's fourth season had been pushed all the way back to 2014.  So, what better way to get our Louis C.K. TV fix than with an all-new HBO stand-up special in 2013?  Will it prove just as award-winning as his last show?

With its well-deserved buzz and Emmy win for star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 'Veep' is bound to attract some major attention for its impending second season.  We've already heard at least one name joining in a recurring capacity, that of former 'Luck' and 'Transformers' star Kevin Dunn, but who's next?  Well, according to one source, character actor Gary Cole is about to join the Vice Presidential sitcom in a major recurring role, but as whom?  And what political figure might he be based on?

‘Sesame Street’ Did A ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Parody, Because Why Not?

We remember the very first time we saw 'Boardwalk Empire,' and thought to ourselves "golly, this is pretty swell, but gosh darn it if all this sex, crime and murder wouldn't be a bit better with chicken puppets."  Thankfully, we no longer need fear copyright infringement or crippling lack of funding, now that 'Sesame Street' has made its own parody of the HBO gangster drama!  Nope, you're not dreaming!

Watch How ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 2 Achieved Its Breathtaking Special Effects

A few years ago, 'Game of Thrones' might not have seemed like a sustainable enterprise for HBO given its somewhat effects-heavy nature. Much more than simple swords and shields, to realize the world envisioned in George R.R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novels would take a great deal of breathtaking, yet often subtle effects depicting vast landscapes and intricately detailed locales. With its recent Creative Arts Emmy win, how would you like to see how they do it?

Tebow Nation is Considering a Boycott

Bill Maher vs. “Tebow Nation”

I admit that I'm a Tebow, "The Footballer", fan. Not a Tebow, as Christian Crusader, fan. However, it doesn't bother me at all that he wants to use his celebrity to promote his religious beliefs. Who gives a poot? I just like him because he set the NFL back 60 years or so. He plays leather helmet football.

On the flip side of that, it also doesn't bother me at all when someone makes a joke about his religious motives. It doesn't bother me when someone makes a joke about Jesus though either. But again, I'm just missing that "I am offended by that" gene.

So now there's the Tebow Nation getting all fired up over a tweet that Bill Maher, comedian and long-time host of "Real Time" on HBO, shot off into cyberspace. They're offended, I guess. Again, I don't get it. But whatever.
