Showtime Offers Preview of "The Tudors"

Curious about the upcoming costume drama The Tudors, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Sam Neill, Jeremy Northam, Henry Czerny, Henry Cavill, and Callum Blue? (Or just looking for your next historical fix with the conclusion of Rome nearly upon us?)

Showtime has created a VIP preview of their new bodices-and-battles drama, The Tudors (premiering April 1 at 10 pm on the pay cabler), but you can catch a sneak peak at, not one, but two upcoming episodes from the luxe period drama now.

The two-episode preview can be found here and, fittingly enough, the password is the word "king."

Oh and a word to the wise: The Tudors features the kind of, er, atmosphere you might find on Rome or Deadwood, so I wouldn't try watching this at work. Unless of course, you happen to work in a Henry VIII-style workplace where anything goes and sex, betrayals, and beheadings are the watchwords of the day.

In which case, go crazy.

I think I will wait for the premiere, which I am attending. :)

Wanna go?
Wow! Stellar cast. I'll definitely have to check out the previews. Maybe this will fill the gaping hole that will be left when Rome finishes.

I wish it was on HBO, as I no longer have Showtime. However, I don't think it could fill the hole (in my heart anyway) that will be left when Rome finishes up. It's a great show that should have gone on a lot longer.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.
