  1. Both NBC’s THE SECRET LIVES OF HUSBANDS AND WIVES and Lifetime’s THE SECRET LIVES OF WIVES are heavily in the casting announcements lately, aren’t they? I wonder if both go to series if either one would be forced to make a name change?

  2. Anonymous says:

    I thought Kim Raver was going to be on Revolution? Will she do both shows?

    I hope James Tupper keeps his recurring role on Revenge.

    Of course both shows might not even get picked up, they sound too much like Desperate Housewives.

    • Anna says:

      Kim raver is just a guest star on revolution so she’s not going to be in every episode so she can still do the lifetime show. Plus the lifetime series is just a pilot for now so it will have to get picked up first leaving her open to go to revolution again if it doesn’t get picked up.

  3. Ana says:

    So I guess Kim Raver won’t be a permanent addition to Revolution. That’s too bad. I guess once she’s done, I will be done with the show as well. I’m just waiting for her to come on. And the names for these new shows are kind of confusing.

    I’ll be watching just for Martin Henderson! He’s amazing!
