• Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) has exited NBC’s new series Believe, per The Hollywood Reporter.

S–t! The Online Network is, um, swearing off something pretty major in episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live moving forward. “The fans have spoken,” TOLN tweeted Thursday. “No more cursing on #AMC and #OLTL.”

  1. Can’t wait how Believe would fare on NBC after Sunday Night Football is over now that one of its key cast members is out.

    I’m not a prude, but I have to admit the cursing on AMC and OLTL threw me off. They definitely weren’t the soaps I grew up on. I like that they’re pulling back on that.

  3. lll says:

    Person of Interest online? Win-win!

  4. Eric7740 says:

    Really??? They curse all the time in prime-time!!! I’m sure the same people that watch primetime shows watch soap operas. Lets stop being so refined.

  5. Kerry says:

    well swearing is more realistic and they have sworn before it is 2013 not the 50s. people swear more nowadays

  6. Anna says:

    Well as long they aren’t swearing good golly! How about they work on the sexism next?

  7. TVFan says:

    Does this mean that Person of Interest will now be available OnDemand?

  8. Alyssa says:

    Wow, no Castle as Comic Con? That was always a great panel. It’d be great for more promotion of the show as well. But of course, this IS ABC we’re talking about…

  9. Et al. says:

    It’s nice to see CBS tiptoeing toward the 21st century.

  10. Kel says:

    The Machine set POI free!

  11. Bobby says:

    So glad Person of Interest is finally available. I missed a couple of episodes from season two and I’ve never been able to catch up.

  12. KCC says:

    At $3/episode? What is CBS thinking? I like POI probably more than the next guy, but I won’t pay that much per episode. Is it just me or does it seem like CBS is doing everything to ruin it? Luckily, the fans keep it going strong

  13. Hera says:

    What are you talking about? POI has been available at Australia iTunes as soon as the episodes were shown. Unfortunately it also means Aussies still haven’t watch the season 2 finale yet! Stupid Channel 9 Australia. This preference for reality programs over original quality programs is another reason why people resolve to piracy.

    I will get off my high horse now and congrats that POI is available at iTunes in US…
