Arrested Development, Netflix
The fourth season of “Arrested Development” brought a number of alterations to the much-anticipated series: the fractured narrative, its single-character episodes, the ramped-up narration by Ron Howard. Even the show's music felt different -- its upbeat swing score higher in the mix and more noticeable in its presence. However, the mid-season pop gem, “Getaway” was a hilarious season highlight, and now the song, alongside the Bluth family's past musical output, is gearing up for release.

Whatever David Bowie does, it's bound to be cooler than what everyone else is doing, and that's certainly true in 2013. The music legend dropped a new album, and along with it two celeb-filled, eye-popping videos that pretty much defied whatever else the industry was doing. So, would Bowie stoop to doing a weekly TV show?

Having run down our favorite series, we wanted to turn our attention to some of the performers who've been appearing in them.

Unlike the movies, which do operate on a January-December basis when it comes to awards consideration, the TV season is a slightly different proposition. With ratings dipping in the summer, new shows tend to be unveiled in September or early fall, and are usually wrapping up by May. The rise of cable networks like FX and HBO has staggered this more, but the Emmys taking place in September tends to mean that the season has a more definitive end at this time of year.

The sixth season of AMC's "Mad Men" came to a close Sunday night, wrapping up what has been arguably its most divisive season yet. As usual the highlights were in no short supply -- the mini-movie meditation "The Doorway," the amphetamine-fueled "The Crash," Don and Betty's temporary reunion in "The Better Half" and the final moments of "In Care Of" just to name a few -- but despite great episodes for whatever reason this season never seemed to coalesce as well as in previous years. Throughout much of the season, it was unclear if the narrative deja vu was a flaw in the writing or sort of the point of the story being told. And coming off a phenomenal season five, you couldn't help but feel that maybe season six just couldn't reach the highs of last year's paradigm-busting episodes. Ironically, the turning point for many this season came midway through when Don and Ted make a pact to merge Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and Cutler, Gleason and Chaough.

While fans of "Downton Abbey" were left a bit bummed out after Dan Stevens' exit from the show last season, leaving a rather significant absence among the Crawley family, it looks like everyone's favorite PBS drama has rebounded with a bit of casting that will certainly light up message boards and Twitter all over again.

Showtime has two new television dramas premiering this year. The first is “Masters of Sex,” which stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, and a new teaser trailer has recently dropped. “Masters of Sex” is based on the real-life stories of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, played by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who were researchers in the nature of human sexual response. The trailer showcases a playful, provocative tone, it should be fun watching Caplan and Sheen play off each other. “Masters of Sex” will premiere on September 29th, after the third season premiere of “Homeland.”

Reshoots, Rewrites & Why The Second Season Of 'The Newsroom' Is Only 9 Episodes Long

Before the first episode of "The Newsroom" aired, expectations were sky high for one reason: Aaron Sorkin. This was going to be the new show from the mind behind "The West Wing" and Oscar-winner who penned "The Social Network," and moreover, it was going to tackle the thorny world of cable news. But the results were far from satisfactory. Wildly uneven, and sometimes more polemical than dramatic, the show still managed an average of 7.1 million viewers per week, though critics were divided, particularly when it came to show's on-the-sleeve politics.

It’s hard to imagine that anyone would pass up on a show that has magicians and conmen battling Nazis, but HBO has done the unthinkable. After months of development, the cable network has decided to pass on the period piece drama “Hobgoblin.”
