One thing we most certainly will not be getting from season three of “Game of Thrones” is more episodes, but that’s not to say that HBO’s epic fantasy adaptation won’t be giving fans a significant amount of extra material next year. The third season will be based on the first half (or thereabouts) of George R.R. Martin’s third installment in the Song of Ice and Fire series, "A Storm of Swords," and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have promised that it will be “super-sized.”

Not content with stepping in to save "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" after Matthew Vaughn bailed on directing, it now looks like Bryan Singer is going put his hand in another geek favorite property, but this time, on the small screen.

Until recently, "Parks & Recreation" have been modest with their guest stars, forgoing the "30 Rock" approach of just getting famous people to show, and instead bringing on collaborators that generally elevate the proceedings. For example: Megan Mulally and Patricia Clarkson as Ron Swanson's ex-wives, Detlef Schrempf as himself, Ben Schwartz as Jean-Ralphio and Andy Samberg as the loud Carl. And that careful approach seems to be continuing, as the show has lined up another great guest.

HBO has had a good year with their new comedy projects. “Girls” and “Veep” were both fantastic, while even Ricky Gervais’ “Life’s Too Short” seems to have received a far warmer reception on the channel than it did in its native U.K. On the drama front the only new show we got from them was “The Newsroom,” which even fans of the show will concede wasn’t quite the home run that you’d expect from an Aaron Sorkin scripted series. With “Treme” set to finish up with a mini-season in the New Year, HBO will be hoping for a raft of new projects that can compliment “True Blood,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Game of Thrones” and the aforementioned “The Newsroom” on their drama slate.

Though it met an early demise this past summer after a lackluster second season, AMC drama “The Killing” got a second chance at life when the cable network announced they would be bringing the show back, with Netflix likely handling a share of the costs. While both Mirielle Enos and Joel Kinnaman are set to return, it seems that other members of the ensemble won’t be back for the new season.

Jay Roach and Danny Strong have found their niche at HBO with political dramas. The director and writer first paired on "Recount" about the hotly contested 2000 election, and they followed it up this year with "Game Change," which focused on the McCain/Palin ticket of 2008. And while they aren't officially signed yet, you can imagine that the network will be giving their agents a ring as they develop "Double Down," a film about this year's election.

The feverishly anticipated fourth season of “Arrested Development” is almost among us, and creator Mitch Hurwitz's hint of the new episodes representing a “first act” to an eventual film has only stoked fan excitement. For that large contingency the pleasant news continues, as the series' recent production has yielded potential for extra avenues through the latest Bluth family chapter.

More rankings! As Oscar prognosticators puzzle, fret and worry over each top ten list that drops, a few patterns are becoming clear -- firstly, everyone loves "Zero Dark Thirty." And secondly, it looks like outside of a couple of categories, Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" won't be making much of a mark on the Oscar race. And indeed, the AFI shut it out entirely.

Just a quick glance at the names of the two leads of Showtime’s new show “Masters of Sex” is enough to get us a little bit excited. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan are those two names, and being that it’s generally a delight any time either of them show up on the big or small screen our interest was immediately piqued when we saw they were starring alongside each other. Well, now we’ve got our first look at the show thanks to a trailer that presents it alongside another one of their new dramas, “Ray Donovan” which boasts a similarly great lead in Liev Schreiber but tonally seems extremely different to "Masters of Sex."
