Though streaming giant Netflix has the cable network in its crosshairs, it still has a long way to go before it reaches the heights and grandeur of HBO. The network stands above all else on the small screen when it comes to programming, though many rival networks are starting to catch up. Over the weekend two new trailers arrived for two of the network’s hotly anticipated premieres.

Even though he put "Robopocalypse" on hold to figure out the script, 2013 is still shaping up to be a very busy and exciting year for Steven Spielberg. He was recently named as the jury president for the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, he's producing "Jurassic Park IV," which stomps back into theaters next year, he's working with Tom Hanks on another "Band Of Brothers"-esque series for HBO, and now he's making an unrealized dream project from one of the greatest filmmakers of all time come back to life.

People are dropping like flies on PBS' popular period drama, "Downton Abbey." At the end of season 3 (massive spoiler alert if you haven't gone this far yet), Dan Stevens' character Matthew Crawley died in a tragic (and rather ridiculous) car accident just moments after his first son was born (he was seemingly so elated he was driving while pleasantly looking up at the clouds without a care in the world). The reason for this hasty writing-him-out of-the-turn was because Stevens, appearing next in the WikiLeaks drama "The Fifth Estate," evidently feels like Hollywood is calling and he better strike while the iron is hot.

"Game Of Thrones," "Mad Men," "Arrested Development"..."Hannibal"? Could the ailing, struggling, embarrassing NBC finally have a show that people will want to talk about this spring? And more importantly, that people will want to watch? Well, the more we see of the show, the answer could very well be Yes. After a quick teaser last week, a much meatier bite from "Hannibal" has arrived, and we have to say, it looks great.

In every discussion surrounding the long-awaited fourth season of “Arrested Development,” there’s been the presumption of longevity; that everything Mitch Hurtwitz is planning will blend into a master timeline of Bluth family chronicles. At least, that was the case until Netflix CEO Reed Hastings declared the upcoming season to be “a one-off” and “non-repeatable,” but luckily, elsewhere in the company it seems the mood is more optimistic.

It looks like you're not going to be able to watch any episode of the new season of "Arrested Development" without crashing into a guest star. With Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Isla Fisher, Terry Crews, Conan O'Brien and John Slattery among those we know for sure are popping by, and side players like Mae Whitman and Carl Weathers also slated to return, the list is now getting (awesomely) longer.
