Ray DonovanWithout a doubt the best new show of the summer! Liev Schreiber plays a Hollywood fix it man whose dysfunctional father (a superb Jon Voight) is causing more problems than his actual clients. The show is midway through its first season, and was recently renewed for a second. Showtime is constantly airing old episodes, meaning you can catch up fairly quickly before the newest airs Sunday night.
America's Got TalentIs it a guilty pleasure? Yes. But the summer is always a time to sit back and relax.

Watch Out, Tonight Show:You're not the only one moving to NYC!

Never Knew How Much We Missed You?: Tia Mowry, forever known as 1 of the 2 stars of the '90s sitcom Sister, Sister, is back — but this time, she's a mom. And it's kind of confusing. Mowry will star as a party girl turned mom (she marries a rich older dude with step-kids), for a comedy pilot Instant Mom on Nick at Nite. The interesting part is that the series will run its episodes on NickMom — making it the first scripted series for the primetime TV block. The show will then air repeats on Nick at Nite. [Deadline]
The Walking Dead Gets New Regulars: A couple of cast members from the series are movin' on up to the regular side — and we don't mean going from undead to alive (no one's discovered that cure yet). Chad Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) will be joining the also-recently-upped David Morrissey (The Governor) in full-time status for the upcoming fourth season. Melissa Ponzio (Karen) is also set to recur as a guest star. Sorry, Carol (portrayed by Melissa McBride), looks like this ain't your year to join the big leagues (again). [Deadline]
Super-Sizing American Idol: Starting with this week’s results episode on Thursday, American Idol will keep the cameras rolling on its eliminated contestants after the episode ends. The new feature is called “Still Rolling,” and will give fans access to what really happens after the final votes are announced. Viewers will see promos running on Thursday’s Idol, then get a behind-the-scenes peek during special airings of New Girl and The Mindy Project. The first piece will air at 9:14 PM ET and the second piece five minutes later. The other two will air around 9:44 PM ET and 9:52 PM ET. [THR]
Season 5 of Misfits Will Be Its Last: The British hit-drama Misfits will end its series after five action-packed seasons. The fifth and final season, which will consist of eight hour-long episodes, is set to premiere Fall 2013 in the UK. American fans can tune in to the superhero show on Hulu and Hulu Plus.

Hayden Panetierre Bikinis in Miami (Celebuzz)t, Tonight Show:
Heidi Klum may be the final replacement judge for America's Got Talent.
Sources told TMZ, who also snagged a pic of the new AGT set with "Heidi" on it in big, bold letters, that she's back to the reality TV judging game as one of the four folks on the panel, alongside Howard Stern, Mel B of the Spice Girls, and Howie Mandel. Hollywood.com had yet to receive confirmation from NBC and Klum's reps at the time of publication, but seeing as the show's auditions are already underway in New Orleans, there's little time for futzing around with new judges.

But the real question is: Can Heidi hack it as an AGT judge? Sure, she's got years of experience judging designers on Project Runway, but will she know who to say Aufedersein to on the NBC series?
Tell us what you think!

America's Got Talent is getting spicy: The NBC talent show has reached across the pond to cast its newest judge, Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Spice Girl Mel B., a.k.a. Scary Spice. She'll join Howard Stern and Howie Mandel as the judges for the new season of the summer reality staple.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Brown will replace Sharon Osbourne as the feisty Brit on the judging panel. “I’ve known Melanie since she did Dancing with the Stars, and I’ve known her as a performer of The Spice Girls before that,” NBC president of alternative Paul Telegdy told EW. “To know her is to know a very frank, strong, enduring entertainer. Someone who has a very strong point of view. We needed somebody who was qualified for the job. She’s an amazing singer, dancer and a huge personality. The contestants will get a lot of constructive feedback from her and I can’t wait to see her chemistry with Howard and Howie.”

This might not be the last casting news will hear, as EW reports the show is considering adding a fourth judge to the mix. But Telegdy tells the magazine that it'll only happen if they find the right person.
Brown has previous judging experience on the Australian version of X Factor. She'll take over for Osbourne, who announced she was quitting after last summer's edition of the show.
What do you think of this spicy new blend of judges? How will Brown fit in with Stern and Mandel?

In a mechanized world an imaginative young inventor Rodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor) wants to be as famous as his hero the greatest inventor of all time Mr. Bigweld (voiced by Mel Brooks). With his father's "follow your dreams and never give up" ringing in his ears Rodney leaves his small town and sets out to the big bad Robot City to meet his idol and show him his invention. Once there Rodney meets the Rusties a ragtag group of street-smart bots lead by the wacky Fender (voiced by Robin Williams) who know the ropes. Rodney finds out that Bigweld has gone into seclusion and Robot City is being taken over by an ambitious robot named Ratchet (voiced by Greg Kinnear) whose motto is "Why Be You When You Could Be New?" Ratchet soon halts production on parts for the older robots. If the bot folk can't afford the new stuff they are gathered up and sent to an underground chop shop where Rachet's hideous mother Madame Gasket (voiced by Jim Broadbent) melts them down and turns them into metal for new parts. But the evil duo's plan is soon spoiled when Rodney and the Rusties start fixing the older models and decide the must get the reclusive Bigweld back on track to fight back.
How can you go wrong with such a fabulous cast? They all do a great job including McGregor as the earnest Rodney Copperbottom; Brooks as the soft-hearted boss Big Weld; Kinnear as the vain and conniving Rachet; Broadbent as the repugnantly evil Gasket; Jennifer Coolidge as the hilarious and lovable big-booty bot Aunt Fanny; Halle Berry as the smart and seductive executive bot Cappy; and Amanda Bynes as the perky Piper determined to prove herself. But once again voice over veteran Robin Williams steals the show as the broke down and chaotic robot Fender. With his hundreds of voices and impersonations animated films fit the frenetic Williams to a tee making him the undisputed king.
Blue Sky Animation and Oscar-winning director Chris Wedge who brought us the delightful Ice Age are back turning in another stellar animated effort. Robots is rivet-ing transporting the audience into a world of mechanics electronics and robotics. The best scene is when Rodney gets to Robot City and goes on a roller coaster "cab" ride with Fender through a maze of whirligigs and gadgets. Good fun. Added into the mix is a groovin' soundtrack that makes you want to get up and dance with the characters while snickering at the songs' innuendos. Overall Robots incorporates vibrant colors above the ground with dark rusted images below to bring to life this lively world of metal folk.
