• Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) has exited NBC’s new series Believe, per The Hollywood Reporter. The Bad Robot-produced drama follows an unlikely relationship between a gifted young girl (Johnny Sequoyah) and a man sprung from prison (Jake McLaughlin) who has been tasked with protecting her from the evil elements that hunt her power. Guillory, who will still appear in the pilot as the first person seeking Bo, will not be recast.

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.”

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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

    • From what I have read, the networks have no say, it’s decided by the studios that make each show.

  • 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…
