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.

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.

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."

It might be hard to believe, but 2012 marks the 120th birthday of Vogue magazine. When it first started, there were no photographs, just illustrations, and a focus on society women. When Condé Nast took over in 1909, things changed, with photography introduced and fashion becoming the focal point of the weekly. Of course, the publication eventually became a monthly, and riding the social tides and political changes, it has become the magazine we know today. And to commemorate the journey, directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato have put together "In Vogue: The Editor's Eye," a brief flip through the pages of the magazine's editorial history, particularly the women whose influence and determination not only allowed the magazine to stay relevant, but maintain its position at the forefront of its many competitors.
