Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

BIO Channel is being rebranded as FYI, a contemporary lifestyle network reflecting how people live their lives today. FYI — which is slated to launch in summer 2014 — is currently developing more than 30 potential new series that are said to “inspire, not instruct, today’s viewer.”

The Bridge has promoted Emily Rios and Matthew Lillard to series regulars in Season 2, following their heavily recurring arcs in the FX drama’s freshman run, Deadline reports. Rios and Lillard co-star as El Paso Times reporters.

  • “JoBro-no-mo’ Nick Jonas is making a return trip to Hawaii Five-0.” Ugh, once was too much! I hope they kill him this time.

    • Wow, can’t get over you guys dishing out such mean things. He obviously was well-received on Hawaii otherwise the heads of CBS wouldn’t have asked him to come back for another episode :)

        • Linda, A Judoon is a Doctor Who race of aliens who talk in rhymes, using short words that end in “o.” “JoBro-no-mo” is exactly like they talk. Thought you might have been familiar with them because of that.

    • No kidding. I read it and instantly said, “This is why I’ve never had any interest in H50.”

  • Can you really call someone an actor/musician when they possess no talent for either?

    • Geez, why so harsh…he tries and you gotta give him some credit for his work ethic! He must have done well enough to warrant a return invite from TPTB.

  • I am very interested in seeing what Mike Kelley will do for HBO, but more importantly, I wish he would go back to Revenge!!

    • He created a great series but he’s the one who felt strongest that Revenge needed The Initiative and we know how that turned out.

      • Actually Mike insisted on shorter cable-like seasons for Revenge. Some that, reportedly, ABC refused to give him so that is why things like the Initiative were brought in to create filler. I’m very excited to see what Mike and HBO can come up with.

  • Yes! for The Bridge news. They were my favourite part of the show last season.

  • Yay! For Mike Kelley!

  • Love the additions to The Bridge. Matthew Lillard particularly. His performance was no less than award-winning during the first season. Shaggy is all grown up!

  • Wow, I wasn’t aware Matthew Lillard and Emily Rios weren’t already regulars on “The Bridge.” Two great performances. Good for them!

    Comment by Geo – December 11, 2013 01:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • When the Bridge started I thought that Matthew Lillard was already a regular on the show until I saw him being credited as a guest star. Anyway about time. Matthew Lillard and Emily Rios have this amazing chemistry as their characters try and navigate the murky world that they live in. I also like their characters as friends as it’s usually rare to see men and women just be friends on a show without the complications of romantic feelings between them. I can’t wait to see the new mystery that they will get drawn into in season 2. I’m guessing it has to do with the millions found in that old woman’s house.

  • Matthew Lillard was amazing, I’m glad he’s coming back. Love Tosh.0

  • NO to BIO changing to FYI! It’s going to be another Court Tv to Tru TV fiasco!

    • So you don’t want to be inspired but not instructed?

  • Changing the biography channel is a huge mistake, its needed as is! Mike Kelly congrats can’t wait for your short seasons no filtered cable series!
