When viewers first met Richard Castle -- a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother -- he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide cop with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother.
Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work. Then, after four seasons of “will they” or “won’t they,” Castle and Beckett finally gave into their feelings for each other. The fun and conflict continue to escalate as the crime-solving dynamic duo navigate a whole new chapter in their relationship.

Cristela’s dream of becoming a lawyer is something her traditional Mexican-American family doesn't quite understand. She’s entering her sixth year of law school after juggling home obligations and working multiple jobs to pay her way.
Cristela lives in cramped quarters with her sister Daniela, her long-suffering brother-in-law Felix and their two young kids. The senior member of this extended family, all living under one roof in Dallas, is Cristela’s old school mom, Natalia, who tells her “somebody could have been a doctor two times in the time it’s taken you not to become a lawyer.” Daniela loves her sister but balks when she tries to bring her modern views into family life. Felix resents how Cristela pays no rent and worst of all, always drinks his last beer. After six years of setbacks, her mom Natalia worries that becoming a lawyer might not be in the cards for her and doesn't want Cristela to be hurt by a dream that might not come true.
Felix’s cousin and co-worker Alberto flirts shamelessly with Cristela, but the only feeling she has for him is a shared passion for the Cowboys.
Then, Cristela’s life begins to look up. Lawyer Trent Culpepper, who is unapologetically politically incorrect about Latinos and just about everyone else, offers her an internship at his prestigious firm. She’ll be working – unpaid – with Culpepper’s pampered daughter Maddie and good-natured fellow intern Josh.
Her family can’t believe she’s going to work for free. But when a turn of events shows just how effective Cristela can be when she works her lawyer knowledge for the greater good of the family, they decide it’s worth (begrudgingly) supporting her as she follows her dreams – which might not be so impossible after all.

Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the ‘80s. For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), these were his wonder years, and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other -- just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McClendon-Covey) is a classic "smother," an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who loves her delicious kids, but still rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff and sometimes oblivious, parenting with half his attention span but all his heart. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is popular and terrifying, doing her best to cover up that she's the smartest of the clan. Barry (Troy Gentile) is a passionate dreamer, who maybe dreams a little too big and who always gets the short end of the stick. Adam (Sean Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who’s navigating first love, and growing up with his family. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al "Pops" Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who’s learning as much from his family as he teaches them.
The Goldbergs stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as Beverly Goldberg, Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille) as adult Adam Goldberg, Sean Giambrone as Adam Goldberg, Troy Gentile (Good Luck Chuck) as Barry Goldberg, Hayley Orrantia (The X Factor) as Erica Goldberg, with George Segal (Just Shoot Me) as Pops Solomon and Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Murray Goldberg.

Annalise Keating (Academy-Award Nominee Viola Davis) is everything you hope your Criminal Law professor will be - brilliant, passionate, creative and charismatic. She's also everything you don't expect - sexy, glamorous, unpredictable and dangerous. As fearless in the courtroom as she is in the classroom, Annalise is a defense attorney who represents the most hardened, violent criminals - people who've committed everything from fraud to arson to murder - and she'll do almost anything to win their freedom. On the surface, Annalise seems like she has it all - a successful career and loving husband, Sam (Tom Verica) - but her relationship with a local Philadelphia detective, Nate (Billy Brown), will force her to confront secrets about her life she never saw coming.
Each year, Annalise selects a group of the smartest, most promising students to come work at her law firm. The students vying for this coveted position include Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch), a wide-eyed, likable boy-next-door recently accepted off the waitlist; Michaela Pratt (Aja Naomi King), a confident, ambitious overachiever born knowing how to "lean in;" Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee), a sly, sophisticated heartbreaker used to getting any prize he lays his eyes on; Laurel Castillo (Karla Souza), a quiet, sensitive idealist who's easy to underestimate and Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry), an entitled know-it-all born into a world of Ivy League educations and country club memberships. The students all work under two of Annalise's dedicated associates: Frank Delfino (Charlie Weber), a local Philly boy done good, and Bonnie Winterbottom (Liza Weil), a sweet, observant team-player with a hidden edge.
Early in the first season, Wes will become entangled with his mysterious neighbor, Rebecca (Katie Findlay), after she becomes the main suspect in the murder of a beautiful university coed. Annalise's involvement with Rebecca's case will challenge her students' values, convictions, and dreams, as she teaches them the dark truth about the law and our justice system. It's worth it though. Working for Annalise is the opportunity of a lifetime, one that can change the course of our students' lives forever, which is exactly what happens when they find themselves involved in a murder plot that will rock the entire university.

Tim Allen returns for a fourth season as “Mike Baxter” in Last Man Standing, a show about everything that families are dealing with today – all filtered through the blunt “man’s man” comedy of an iconic American dad. Mike continues to be surrounded by forces seeking to challenge his ideas on just about everything in which he strongly believes.
Mike and his wife, Vanessa, a geologist considering a career change, live with their three daughters in Denver, Colorado. They find themselves tussling with the ongoing parenting dilemma: How much can they continue to influence their kids as they grow up and move on?
Since his seven-year-old grandson, Boyd, moved out of the Baxter home with his mom, oldest daughter Kristin, Mike especially feels the pain of separation. Mike considers Boyd as the other “last man standing” in his life and persists in trying to save the boy from the liberal guidance of his young parents.
Kristin now lives in an apartment in downtown Denver with her son and her baby-daddy, Ryan. It can be a bit of a struggle financially but she and Ryan are determined to raise Boyd their own way, outside of Mike’s well-meaning influence.
As they plan for an upcoming wedding, Kristin and Ryan continue negotiating the terms of their own relationship – one that started off rocky with a high school pregnancy and Ryan skipping town. Ryan has since become a caring spouse and father, but Mike still often sees him as an irresponsible goofball.
Back home, it’s an exciting time of broadening horizons for 20-year-old Mandy Baxter, a sophomore at UC Denver and talented designer with her own clothing business. This new status as an entrepreneur adds to Mandy’s vanity and cheerful self-confidence. Mandy’s sweet relationship with Kyle, who works for her father, continues to blossom.
Like her older sisters, 16-year-old Eve Baxter is also spreading her wings a bit. She, too, is dating – much to Mike’s discomfort. Eve is still a tomboy at heart and active in Junior ROTC. She carries her cocky gung-ho attitude into every project she takes on, which makes papa Mike very proud.
Chuck Larabee, Mike’s frenemy neighbor, continues to take friendly pokes at Mike. Of course, Mike pokes Chuck right back, giving as well as he gets.
Mike tries to escape all the female drama at home in the warm, manly embrace of his job at the Outdoor Man store, a sporting goods emporium where he is marketing director. Mike’s long-time boss and friend, Ed Alzate, continues to provide a slightly warped sounding-board as Mike considers the various thorny issues confronting him at home.
Mike still revels in his Outdoor Man video-blog, which he delightedly uses as a pulpit for his opinions and a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault. When he’s supposed to be selling mountain bikes or kayaks, for some reason he always ends up spouting off about the environment, Obamacare, international politics or any other topic occupying his mind.
“Last Man Standing” stars Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, Nancy Travis as Vanessa Baxter, Molly Ephraim as Mandy Baxter, Kaitlyn Dever as Eve Baxter, Amanda Fuller as Kristin Baxter, Jordan Masterson as Ryan Vogelson, Christoph Sanders as Kyle Anderson, Flynn Morrison as Boyd Baxter, Jonathan Adams as Chuck Larabee and Hector Elizondo as Ed Alzate.
“Last Man Standing,” created by Jack Burditt and executive-produced by Tim Doyle, Tim Allen, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Shawn Levy, Richard Baker, Rick Messina, and is from Twentieth Century Fox Television.
Manhattan Love Story, a new romantic comedy airing Tuesdays this fall, is based on this simple premise: The only way to maintain relationships—with lovers, spouses, family, co-workers, or friends—is to keep most of our thoughts to ourselves. At the heart of the story are Dana (Analeigh Tipton, Crazy, Stupid, Love) and Peter (Jake McDorman, ABC Family's Greek, Shameless) a couple navigating the complicated terrain of a modern day relationship. The audience will hear Dana and Peter's inner thoughts, highlighting the differences of men and women as this couple traverses the highs and lows of dating.
Dana grew up in a small town with her sights set on New York. She romanticizes about life in the big city and her polite, sweet nature is often misinterpreted as naiveté, but she is a smart girl who is generally one step ahead of those who dismiss her. Peter, on the other hand, grew up in New York and feels that he has seen and done everything the city has to offer. While Dana is determined to succeed in New York in both business and love, Peter is perfectly content to go on dating his way through Manhattan.
Peter's wealthy sister-in-law and Dana's college roommate, Amy (Jade Catta-Preta), is a dilettante in the sense that she has a thousand different passions, and unique because she masters each of them. Her husband, David (Nicolas Wright), is Peter's brother who loves his wife and money. David is more than happy to let Amy take the reins of his life because, after all, she's doing a better job of running it than he ever would.
Chloe (Chloe Wepper) is Peter and David's half-sister from their father's third marriage. Like David, Chloe is not afraid to say what she thinks and unlike David, what she has to say is actually perceptive and intelligent. William (Kurt Fuller), the kids' father, is incapable of understanding that he's wrong about anything. He loves being the authority figure, and since all of his children work for him, he's never had one moment in his adult life when they haven't had to do what he has wanted.
Filmed in New York, Manhattan Love Story stars Analeigh Tipton as Dana, Jake McDorman as Peter, Nicolas Wright as David, Jade Catta-Preta as Amy, Chloe Wepper as Chloe and Kurt Fuller as William.

She has a fling with Ward, who happens to be a spy for the evil organization known as HYDRA. Ward is loyal to Garrett, who turns out to be the Clairvoyant.
A massive battle takes place and S.H.I.E.L.D. is completely dismantled. HYDRA has been infiltrating the organization for years. Coulson and the remaining loyal members of his team take down Ward and Garrett. There are casualties though. The fate of Fitz remains in question after he showed Simmons how he feels by risking his life to save her.

After being left to die in the middle of the ocean by Ward, Agent Leo Fitz, brilliant engineer, and Agent Jemma Simmons, genius bio-chemist, found a way to escape their watery grave.

Forget about athletes, movie stars and politicians. Parents are the real heroes—but we think Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton), must be some kind of superhero. A loving wife and mother of three, she's middle class in the middle of the country and is rapidly approaching middle age.
Frankie and her husband, Mike (Neil Flynn), have lived in Orson, Indiana, their whole lives. A man of few words (every one a zinger), Mike is a manager at the town quarry and Frankie is the third-best used car salesman (out of the three) at the local dealership. She may not be a high-powered career woman, but when it comes to her family, she'll go to just about any length. And with kids like these, she had better. There's Axl (Charlie McDermott), her semi-nudist teenage son conceived while under the influence of Guns N' Roses; Sue (Eden Sher), the awkward teenage daughter who fails at everything... but with the utmost of gusto; and their seven-year-old son Brick(Atticus Shaffer), whose best friend is his backpack.
Sometimes it seems like everyone is trying to get to the top, or struggling not to hit bottom, but we think Frankie and her family will find a lot of love, and a lot of laughs, somewhere in The Middle.

Jay's grown daughter, Claire, and her husband, Phil, also have their son, Luke, heading to high school; their middle daughter, Alex, is full steam ahead on the college track, and the eldest, Haley, is back home figuring out her future. With the kids all growing up, this new chapter means Claire can explore returning to the workforce, which will have its fair share of missteps and victories. And this will be a big year for Claire's brother and Jay's grown son, Mitchell, who alongside his loving partner, Cameron, and daughter Lily, will have a lot of reasons to celebrate.

This is Fairy Tale Land. It's filled with magic, monsters and all of the characters we all know from stories growing up. It's real, and so are the people in it. But unlike the "happily ever after" you may have heard about, their stories continued, and The Evil Queen cast a Dark Curse over the land....
This is Storybrooke. It's a quiet, little, New England town filled with people who go about their everyday lives with no idea who they really are. The Queen's Curse has trapped them here and placed her in near-complete control. They have no real memories and no real hope.
Once Upon A Time is, at its core, a story about hope.
"For us, that’s what a fairy tale is. It’s that ability to think your life will get better. It’s why you buy a lottery ticket—because if you win you get to tell your boss that you’re quitting and you get to move to Paris or wherever and be who you always wanted to be. And that’s Cinderella, right? One day she’s sweeping up and the next she’s going to the ball. Adam and I just wanted to write about something hopeful that for one hour a week allows one to put everything aside and have that feeling that your dreams just may come true."
- Edward Kitsis, Co-Creator/Executive Producer
About Season 1: Emma Swan’s life has been anything but a fairytale. A 28-year-old bail bondsperson, she’s been taking care of herself since she was abandoned as a baby. But when Henry—the son she gave up 10 years ago—finds her, everything changes. Henry is desperate for his mom’s help and thinks that Emma is actually the long, lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. Yes, the actual Snow White and Prince Charming. Even stranger, Henry believes that Storybrooke, the sleepy New England town he calls home, is really part of a curse cast by the Evil Queen, freezing fairytale characters in the modern world with no memory of their former selves.
Of course the seen-it-all Emma doesn’t believe a word, but when she gets to Storybrooke, she can’t help sensing that everything’s not quite what it seems. As Henry shows Emma around with the help of his fairytale book, the town, and its inhabitants like Henry’s therapist Archie Hopper and the enigmatic Mr. Gold, seem just strange enough to set off her already suspicious nature. She becomes even more concerned for Henry when she meets his adopted mother, Regina, who he suspects is none other than the Evil Queen herself!
Storybrooke is a place where magic has been forgotten—but is still powerfully close—and happily ever after seems just out of reach. In order to understand where the fairytale world’s former inhabitants came from, and what ultimately led to the Evil Queen’s wrath, you’ll need a glimpse into their previous lives. But it might just turn everything you’ve ever believed about these characters upside-down. Meanwhile, the epic battle for the future of all worlds, modern and fairytale alike, is about to begin. For good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell. For detailed recaps please visit Once Upon a Time's Season 1 Episode Guide.
About Season 2: To ensure that no one in Fairy Tale Land—especially Snow White—had any more "happily ever afters," Evil Queen Regina cast a curse which trapped the fairy tale characters, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Although still alive, they had no knowledge of their former selves and were sleepwalking through life—ageless—for 28 years, until a savior arrived in the form of Emma Swan. Unbeknownst to Emma, she was the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, who had whisked her out of Fairy Tale Land and into our world as an infant to save her from The Curse. Abandoned as a baby, Emma's life was anything but magical; her last job was as a bail bondsperson, but she mostly drifted without much of a life plan. When her 10-year-old son, Henry—whom she had given up for adoption years earlier—appeared on her doorstep with a book of fairy tales and a wild story about how Emma was the progeny of fairy tale characters trapped in a town called Storybrooke, she thought he was crazy. But curiosity got the better of her, and when she brought Henry back to the town—where Regina, ever the control freak, had made herself mayor and was also Henry's adoptive mother—Emma soon discovered that Storybrooke was more than it seemed. Over time she came to believe the stories were true, began to see cracks in the curse, and was finally able to break it.
Reality and myth were merged as the fairy tale characters began awakening, once The Curse was lifted, and remembered who they were. But to their dismay they were not transported back to fairy tale land. And to make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin—aka Mr. Gold—in an effort to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina, introduced magic into the town. In fairy tales magic has its place, but in our world it can have unfathomable consequences. Now the fairy tale characters must contend with magic in their quest to find a way home, as new fairy tale characters are revealed, old acquaintances are revisited, and some we had come to believe could be trusted will turn against their own kind. For detailed recaps please visit Once Upon a Time's Season 2 Episode Guide.
About Season 3: Welcome to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won't show up on your GPS, but it's a magical place to visit. Reality and myth merged after Emma broke Regina's curse, which had deprived the fairytale characters of their memories and trapped them in our modern world. When they finally regained their identities, our heroes were dismayed to discover that they weren't transported back to Fairy Tale Land. To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin—aka Mr. Gold—decided to escalate his power struggle with Regina by introducing magic into the town. But this is our world, and magic always has a tendency to yield unfathomable consequences.
The first order of business this season was to save Henry, who had been kidnapped and transported through a portal to Neverland. But Neverland was a much darker place than one remembers, and our heroes had to face a foe more powerful than the Dark One himself—Peter Pan. After being tricked and led astray for days—and learning that he was also Rumplestiltskin's father—Pan was defeated and trapped inside Pandora's Box. Our heroes returned to Storybrooke, only to discover that Pan had switched bodies with Henry and was about to enact a curse that would have killed every living soul in town. But after discovering the switch and restoring Henry back into his body, Rumplestiltskin paid the ultimate price by sacrificing his life and killing Pan. In turn, Regina obliterated her original curse, which erased Storybrooke from existence and whisked its residents back to Fairy Tale Land, leaving Emma and Henry together back in our world with pleasant memories—but with no memories of Storybrooke or its residents, and with Storybrooke itself seemingly gone for good. And they all lived happily ever after... Hardly!

About Season 4: After defeating Zelena — the Wicked Witch of the West — Emma and Hook were pulled into her time portal, which brought them back to the Enchanted Forest of the past. When they accidentally thwarted the initial meeting of Snow White and Prince Charming, Emma and Hook had to find a way to fix the timeline and get them together, or risk altering their futures and possibly obliterating Emma and Henry's existence; not an easy task to undertake. When Emma was captured by The Evil Queen, she met a female prisoner scheduled to be executed. Upon finding a way to escape, Emma saved the prisoner's life by taking her along. But Hook believed the woman's fate was to die and feared that things could be altered by her continued existence. After successfully getting her parents back on track, Emma, Hook and the prisoner found themselves captured by Rumplestiltskin and imprisoned in a room that contained his most unpredictable magic. With no way to escape, Emma discovered that her own magic had returned, and she was able to whisk herself, Hook and the prisoner back to present day Storybrooke. Upon their joyous return, Emma learned that the prisoner was none other than Robin Hood's wife, Marian, who was presumed dead in the previous timeline. Regina and Robin Hood had begun to fall madly in love with one another, but with Marian's return, their relationship could be in danger. And, unbeknownst to anyone, Emma and Hook also brought back Elsa.
You never give up on the people you love...
The Storybrooke residents do not know what Elsa has in store for them. Back in the past, in Elsa's kingdom of Arendelle, we will discover what happened to her, her sister Anna and Kristoff, and how and why Elsa became a prisoner of Rumplestiltskin.
And now that Emma has brought back Robin Hood's wife, Marian, and possibly sparked the end of Regina's relationship with him, will she return to her old, evil ways and do everything in her power to get even? And newlyweds Belle and Rumplestiltskin continue to be deeply in love with each other. But Rumple is hiding a secret from Belle -- one that, if found out, could destroy their happiness - he continues to be the master of the dagger that calls upon him to be the Dark One. Can Emma and Hook commit to one another, and can these two damaged people take their love to the next level?
Mary Margaret and David have a new baby, Prince Neal, and are looking forward to raising him into a proud, brave and loving adult. But they are still sad that they were not able to do this with Emma, instead helping her escape the curse when she was first born and not meeting her again until she was 28 years old.
Henry is very happy to have both of his mothers back in Storybrooke. But with biological mom Emma and paternal grandfather Rumplestiltskin's blood running through his veins, he will be tested by both the light and the darkness.

He finds himself intertwined in the goings-on in town for the first time as his mysterious past pushes him to an unknown future.

Everyone has secrets… and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite by keeping those secrets under wraps. Pope’s team are at the top of their game when it comes to getting the job done for their clients, but it becomes apparent that these “gladiators in suits,” who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, have trouble fixing those closest at hand -- their own. The series is created by Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice). Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) and Mark Wilding are executive producers. Judy Smith is co-executive producer.
Quinn Perkins is recruited by Harrison Wright, a representative from Olivia Pope & Associates, one of the most prestigious firms in the country. She soon finds herself engrossed in the fast-paced world of crisis management with a diverse, driven group of "gladiators in suits" who "make problems go away" for their clients. Olivia is drawn into a case revolving around a White House intern named Amanda Tanner, who is claiming to have had a sexual relationship with Olivia's former boss—and lover—President Fitzgerald Grant. At first, Olivia dismisses Amanda's claim, but it soon becomes clear that she is telling the truth. As more of Amanda's story is revealed, including the fact that she's pregnant, Olivia begins to find herself at odds with the man she loved and her former mentor and current White House Chief of Staff, Cyrus Beene.
When Amanda Tanner is abducted and it's discovered that she was murdered by a professional killer, Olivia begins to believe the worst. Meanwhile, Quinn begins a romantic relationship with a reporter, Gideon Wallace, who has begun to piece together the Amanda Tanner story. When Gideon discovers that the Vice President's Chief of Staff, Billy Chambers, is the true mastermind behind Amanda's attempt to blackmail the President and her death, Billy murders Gideon. Quinn discovers her dying boyfriend, but she can't be found at the scene of a murder. Olivia and her team help to hide Quinn's involvement with Gideon's death and save President Grant from a scandal that could ruin his presidency. But Assistant State Attorney David Rosen knows that Quinn was at the scene of Gideon's death and he's determined to find out what her secret is. Who is Quinn?
Six months have passed and a trial reveals that Quinn Perkins is actually Lindsay Dwyer, the former girlfriend of one of seven people killed in the Cytron office bombing. After losing his case, U.S. Attorney David Rosen investigates the possibility that perhaps Quinn/Lindsay isn’t a murderer. His relationship with Abby gets him inside access to Pope & Associates. Olivia meets with a secret group about the Rosen situation. This clandestine clan includes energy tycoon Hollis Doyle, Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton, First Lady Mellie Grant and White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene. This is the group that pulled off the greatest conspiracy of all time. They rigged a national election so that an unsuspecting Fitzgerald Grant would become President of the United States.
Olivia Pope continues to navigate through her feelings for the most powerful man in the world while dating past flame Senator Edison Davis. Her true feelings for Fitz can’t be denied when an assassination attempt nearly claims his life. The president recovers to learn from Verna Thornton’s deathbed confession about the rigged election that won him the presidency. The dying Supreme Court Justice also admits to being the one behind his assassination attempt. All this remains a secret after Fitz suffocates Verna so she couldn’t testify to David Rosen.
10 months pass and Captain Jake Ballard enters Olivia’s world both professionally and romantically. He spies on her at the request of his old military pal who is now his Commander-In-Chief. Speaking of Fitz, Mellie can’t take his obsession with Olivia any longer, so she tells the world her husband had an extramarital affair. In other news, David Rosen was in cahoots with Sally Langston’s former right-hand man, Billy Chambers, to get proof of the election rigging. He tricks Billy into confessing to murder. He turns over the only rigging evidence to Cyrus in exchange for a job as U.S. Attorney of DC. As for Olivia, she is shocked when she’s fingered as the president’s mistress. She’s rescued from the aggressive press by Jake Ballard’s mysterious, dangerous boss. His name is Rowan. But Olivia Pope only knows him as “Dad.”
News that Olivia is Fitz’s mistress is “handled” when a White House employee takes the fall. Olivia goes to work on the presidential re-election campaign. Jake is released by B613 to later become the head of the organization. The man who was in charge, Rowan/Eli/Papa Pope, eventually reveals the truth about Operation Remington and Liv’s terrorist mom, Maya. Olivia can’t deny her passion for Fitz, who brings her to Vermont to show her the dream. This is where she’d make jam. Back in the real world, Olivia strikes up a fake relationship with Jake that leads to some real passion.
Flashbacks show that Big Jerry Grant raped Mellie, who has an affair with Fitz’s V.P. candidate, Andrew. Cyrus Beene’s plan to bring down Sally Langston by throwing James at Daniel Douglas backfires. The V.P. overcomes the guilt of murdering her hubby to run against Fitz for the presidency. Huck engages in some teeth-pulling torture when he learns Quinn betrayed Olivia. These two eventually lick and make up. Charlie exacts revenge by letting Huck know where his family is. Jake kills James and others in the name of B613, which is, indeed, brought down by Olivia until her dad reclaims his Command position. Jake gives David the proof he needs to take them down again.

Social Media superstar Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But after a workplace mishap goes viral, she quickly realizes that being "instafamous" isn't all it's cracked up to be and being friended is not the same as having actual friends.
She enlists co-worker and marketing guru, Henry (John Cho), to 'rebrand' her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. At first, Henry wants nothing to do with Eliza, who is the epitome of all he deems wrong with the app-addicted world. But soon, Henry takes pity on Eliza. With a few expert tweaks and some help from the effervescent office receptionist Charmonique (Randolph) and Eliza's quirky neighbor Brynn (Rachel), he can tone down her palette, teach her a few social graces, and help break Eliza of her instinct to put Internet connection above personal connection.
What Henry doesn't anticipate, however, is how much he'll learn. As a workaholic who rarely makes time for socializing, even Henry's boss, Sam (Harewood), knows he is disconnected from personal relationships. Henry eventually begins to realize that his little "project" just might have something to teach him. After all, keeping life at arm's length is great for taking a selfie, but not so much if you want someone in the picture next to you.
Selfie explores the struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline-whether she 'likes' it or not.
Selfie stars Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, Guardians of the Galaxy) as Eliza, John Cho (Star Trek, Harold and Kumar) as Henry, Da'Vine Joy Randolph (The Angriest Man in Brooklyn) as Charmonique, Allyn Rachel (Weeds) as Bryn, and David Harewood (Homeland) as Sam.
Shark Tank, the critically-acclaimed reality showthat has reinvigorated entrepreneurship in America, has also become a culturally defining series. The recipient of the 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, the business-themed show has returned to the ABC Television Network for its sixth season.
The Sharks -- tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons -- continue their search to invest in the best businesses and products that America has to offer. The Sharks will once again give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream, and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires.
The Sharks are: billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; "Queen of QVC" Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary.
The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the Tank must try to convince the Sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into million dollar realities. All of the good, bad, emotional and even absurd pitches help showcase the "I wish I had thought of that" business ideas and products.
But the Sharks have a goal, too -- to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they're more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.
This season, Nick Woodman, one of America's newest and youngest billionaires and founder and CEO of GoPro, will be a guest Shark in multiple episodes. Forbes magazine calls GoPro a "cultural phenomenon" and "America's fastest-growing digital imaging company."
There will also be guest stars and specially-themed episodes, including ones featuring all-college students as well as all-veteran entrepreneurs. Episodes will continue to include follow-up stories, allowing viewers the opportunity to see how some investments led to success.
The hit unscripted series, which will reach its milestone 100th episode in November 2014, continues to be a ratings force, regularly finishing as Friday night's No. 1 series. Last season, Shark Tank dominated its 9 o'clock time period and surged by double digits year to year with Total Viewers (+16%) and Adults 18-49 (+14%), marking the series' best-ever season on both Nielsen measures.
In 2012 and 2013, Shark Tank received Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Program. Additional recognitions include two Summer Television Critics Association (TCA) nominations for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming (winning in 2013), three Critics Choice Award nominations for Best Reality Series (winning in 2014), and three Producers Guild Award nominations.
In Season 6, the Sharks are on track to surpass the amount of money offered each season in their investment deals. Over the past five seasons, the Sharks have offered more than $45 million to bankroll a creative array of innovative entrepreneurs.
Viewers will continue to ride an emotional roller coaster this season, complete with heated fights between the Sharks, ingenious business ideas and touching moments. Whichever way the wheeling and dealing may go, many people's lives will be better off -- because they dared to enter the unpredictable waters of the Shark Tank.
Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill and Phil Gurin are the executive producers of Shark Tank, which is based on the Japanese Dragons' Den format created by Nippon Television Network Corporation. The series is produced by One Three Media in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Andi Dorfman, 26, a beautiful and successful woman, has it all at first glance — her loving family, her great friends, and even her dream job. But she realized there was something missing. So, last September, she put her busy life on hold to try and find love on The Bachelor. She thought she had found her match, but in the end it was not meant to be, and Andi walked away from Juan Pablo. She did not, however, let that experience stop her desire to find her perfect soul mate. Andi will embark on her own journey to find love when she stars in the tenth edition of The Bachelorette, which will premiere MONDAY, MAY 19 (9:00 – 11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
While on The Bachelor, Andi revealed that she doesn’t want an ordinary love. She longs to find a great love like the one her parents share and her newlywed sister has found. She isn’t sure what has kept her from finding it, but she is sure she wants to keep on trying.
The whip-smart, stunning Bachelorette lives in Atlanta, where she works as an Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County, Georgia. Andi is one of very few women working as a gang prosecutor and she aims to keep her community safe by putting criminals behind bars. She hopes that one day her own children will live in a beautiful world full of warmth and opportunity. But first, she must fearlessly pursue her next goal - to find the wonderful love of her life.
Andi is the younger of two sisters and grew up learning how to hunt and fish, both activities she still enjoys -- almost as much as she loves to shop. Andi was a sorority girl at Louisiana State University until she graduated in 2009. After that, she earned her JD from Wake Forest’s Law School in 2012. She has been an Assistant District Attorney since passing the bar in her native Georgia and has been prosecuting criminals ever since.

They agree to follow a manual written by the departing mother that sets out the rules of their new household - how they parent, manage their social life, do house work, unwind and more.
In the second half of the week, everything changes. The new moms take charge. They introduce their own set of rules and get to run the new household their way. It's a radical shock to both celebrity families. The results are explosive, enlightening, emotional and often very funny.

One blind spoonful could change everything on ABC’s The Taste. This new cooking competition show is literally all about taste.
Sixteen competitors, from pro chefs to home cooks, whip up dishes attempting to impress four of the world’s most notable chefs. The catch is all the dishes will be judged in a blind taste test. In this pressure-packed contest, the taste of a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing.
The Taste features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre and award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson. Each of the four culinary superstars and mentors -- Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Samuelsson -- will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call as they vie to create the best tasting dish.
In each episode, the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be eliminating.

Or is it something far more unsettling... as she searches for the answer.
Halfway across the world, in the middle of the Sahara Desert, Defense Department operative Wes Lawrence unearths a strange, haunting geological phenomenon. Are these mysteries connected? The answer will force them all to face their greatest fear. That perhaps the enemy... is already in their homes. As the clock counts down, it's a suspenseful race to save not only their families, but the world. Before it's too late.

From J.J. Abrams, the creator of Alias, comes the action-packed adventure that became a worldwide television event. Stranded on an island that holds many secrets, 48 plane crash survivors must band together if they hope to get home alive.
The survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 discover that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, housing and hatches with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as "The Others," and a mysterious man named Jacob. They find signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th-century sailing ship called The Black Rock, a downed Beechcraft plane from a failed drug run, the remains of an ancient, four-toed statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the Dharma Initiative -- a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past.
Faith, reason, destiny and free will all clash as the island offers opportunities for both corruption and redemption... but as to its true purpose? That's the greatest mystery of all.
About Season 1
Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed, leaving 48 passengers alive and stranded on a remote island in the South Pacific. The survivors include a diverse group of people from different walks of life -- a doctor (Jack Shephard), an escaped fugitive (Kate Austen), a con man (James "Sawyer" Ford), an Iraqi interrogator (Sayid Jarrah), a married Korean couple (Sun and Jin Kwon), a rock star (Charlie Pace), a lottery winner (Hugo "Hurley" Reyes), a pregnant woman (Claire Littleton) and a man formerly confined to a wheelchair who is now inexplicably healed (John Locke). As the castaways attempt to get home, flashbacks illuminate their troubled lives before the crash, as the island they find themselves stranded on begins to slowly reveal its mysterious nature.
About Season 3
Jack, Kate and Sawyer are held captive by the mysterious Others, including Juliet Burke, a woman with questionable loyalties and an eye for Jack. Back on the beach, Desmond has recurring visions of Charlie dying, but that doesn't stop the pair from undertaking a dangerous mission to disable a signal jammer in an underwater Dharma station. Desmond's girlfriend Penny had sent out a rescue ship to find her lost love, and unjamming the signal could help the survivors contact the nearby freighter that has arrived offshore. But is it Penny's boat?
About Season 4
A handful of survivors make it off the island, and the identities of the rescued "Oceanic Six" are revealed as the story jumps ahead in time with the introduction of flash forwards. Meanwhile, the arrival of the freighter brings hope in the form of new allies, as well as a new threat in the form of ruthless, mutinous mercenaries. Why does Jack's dead father, Christian Shephard, re-emerge to lure Claire into the woods and will Desmond find his "constant" to stop his consciousness from leaping across time? And if only six survivors make it off the island, what fate awaits those who are left behind?
About Season 5
"When are we?" Ben has moved the island, but it begins to skip through time like a scratched record. The time-hopping finally settles in the 1970s, where Sawyer, Juliet and Miles join Dharma during its heyday when a very young Ben Linus is living in the group's barracks. Off the island in the present, Jack tries to reunite the Oceanic Six for a return trip to the island. John Locke's body is part of the cargo on Ajira Airways 316, which suffers a similar fate as Oceanic 815, but instead of Christian Shephard seemingly coming back to life, it's Locke, who has somehow returned from the dead.
About Season 6
The aftermath of the hydrogen bomb's detonation sets off the series' explosive conclusion. The rivalry between the Man in Black and Jacob reaches a head as they each try to recruit the survivors for their own purpose -- to either escape the island or to protect it. The origins of the Man in Black, Jacob and ageless Richard Alpert are all revealed, while the introduction of "flash sideways" redefine Jack and the people in his life in new storylines off the island. Only Desmond seems to know how the flash sideways tie into everything, but will the Man in Black or Widmore stop him? Who will leave the island and who will protect it?
From Shonda Rhimes, the Golden Globe-winning creator of Grey's Anatomy, comes the story of a team of gifted doctors working together to change the lives of their patients for the better as they look to one another for friendship and love.
Having made a home in Los Angeles and among her friends at the practice, renowned neonatal surgeon Addison Montgomery may have at last found true love with fellow doctor and longtime friend Sam. But just as things have become romantic for the two of them, their friends question if their relationship, so complicated by the presence of Sam's ex—Addison's best friend, Naomi—has a chance.
Oceanside Wellness' co-founders, Naomi and Sam, nearly lost their daughter, Maya, in a car accident that took the life of the practice's own Dell.

Having bitterly fought for custody in court, Pete and Violet came through the drama not only ready to co-parent, but ready to be with one another. It's soon after this realization that the two decide to get married and begin a new life together.
At long last, through numerous bumps in the road, break-ups and make-ups, Charlotte and Cooper are engaged to be married, but the trip to the altar may not be an easy one.
The newest addition to the practice, Dr. Amelia Shepherd, is as gifted a surgeon as her Seattle-based brother, Derek, but is struggling to find herself as she learns to fit in with this close-knit group of surgeons. And Pacific Wellcare psychiatrist Sheldon Wallace is embittered after having pursued many of the women in the practice and come up empty-handed.
The doctors of Oceanside Wellness and Pacific Wellcare work on the most difficult cases, patients whose medical needs often pose moral and ethical dilemmas.
