Multi-talented comedian and actor Rodney Carrington will stay up late to host the biggest celebration of the year and ring in 2012 on AMERICAN COUNTRY NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE airing Saturday, Dec. 31 (11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET live; CT/MT/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Carrington, and co-hosts Rick Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell of “Pawn Stars,” will help count down to 2012 during the ultimate year-end party featuring some of country’s biggest and brightest musical stars.
Grammy-nominated country star Joe Nichols will join previously announced AMERICAN COUNTRY NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE performers Lauren Alaina and Rodney Atkins to rock the Vegas strip. The year-end festivities also will feature performances by Eli Young Band and Toby Keith. Howie Mandel will make a special appearance to share his New Year’s resolution and offer a sneak peak of his upcoming MOBBED series of specials, airing Wednesdays, Jan. 4, Jan. 11, Feb. 1 and Feb. 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Rodney Carrington is a comedian, actor, singer and writer who has recorded eight comedy albums that have sold more than three million copies. His album “Morning Wood” has been certified gold and his “Greatest Hits” recently was certified platinum. Carrington starred for two seasons on his own TV sitcom “Rodney,” and co-wrote and co-starred with Toby Keith in the feature film “Beer for My Horses.” According to Pollstar, Carrington was one of the Top Five highest-grossing touring comedians in the past five years, and he consistently has been in the Top 10 over the past 10 years. He regularly performs to sold-out crowds across the U.S. and Canada.
Rick Harrison, who is currently starring on “Pawn Stars,” is the owner-operator of Las Vegas’ World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, a family business. Trained in the pawn business from the age of 13, Harrison was born a hustler. He dropped out of high school to sell fake handbags, and later, with enough money to partner with his father, he opened the Gold & Silver, where his son also works. Harrison is the author of “License to Pawn: Deals, Steals, and My Life at the Gold & Silver.”
Austin “Chumlee” Russell stars on “Pawn Stars,” working at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop for the Harrison family. Having been around the shop since he was a kid, Chumlee’s heart of gold makes him a pro at customer service, and he always wants to give his patrons the best deal.
Grammy-nominated country star Joe Nichols has received many accolades and accomplishments throughout his career, including four No. 1 and eight Top 10 singles. Legends like George Jones and Merle Haggard have given Nichols their public seal of approval, adding luster to accomplishments that reflect the respect he has earned across the board, including new artist awards from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music; four Grammy nominations; a CMA Album of the Year nomination; and multiple RIAA platinum and gold albums and singles. His stream of hits include chart-toppers like “Brokenheartsville,” “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” and “Gimmie That Girl,” and Top 10 smashes like “The Impossible,” “If Nobody Believed In You,” “What’s A Guy Gotta Do,” “Size Matters” and “I’ll Wait For You.” His sixth, and most recent album is “It’s All Good.”
Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for over 30 years. As host and executive producer of the FOX series MOBBED, Mandel has put a hidden-camera spin on the “flash mob” concept by helping a special guest plan an extraordinary surprise for a friend, family member, loved one or co-worker. Mandel recently received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality/Competition Host for “Deal or No Deal” and a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Game Show Host for the syndicated version of the show. Mandel has done countless comedy specials both on cable and network television; has hosted his own syndicated talk show, “The Howie Mandel Show”; and continues to be a mainstay on the talk-show circuit. He frequently appears on “The Tonight Show” to perform his signature hidden-camera bits, and he was always one of the first people Regis Philbin called to fill in for him on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” He also continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the U.S. and Canada.
AMERICAN COUNTRY NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE is executive-produced by Bob Bain, produced by Paul Flattery and directed by Michael Dempsey.

i've been a fan of Nathan Fillion's since i first saw him years ago as Joey Buchanan on [the soon to be late *sigh*] daytime drama One Life To Live. That fandom was reinforced after seeing him as Capt.Mal on Serenity/Firefly and of course Desperate Housewives. A few months ago a tweeter was telling me she & her mom are HUGE fans of Castle---and was surprised i hadn't seen Castle. [Sorry i don't recall her name---if U R her & recognize this tweet's deets tweet me back @sookietex 'kay? THX :D]
Mea Culpa Mea Maxima Culpa, but i had a good reason for not having seen Castle. It airs at the same time as when i was watching the Yankees and as much as i admire Mr.Fillion i bleed pinstripes so i was unaware of Castle. Well i knew of it, but i didn't know what night it aired until recently, much less that it is about to have a 4th season. Thank goodness for modern technology because now i can watch my beloved Yankees AND Castle :D

ChillerTV has something to sate zombiephiles while AMC's The Walking Dead is on hiatus: Steve Niles' Remains. It premiered Friday December 16th 2011. A shrewd scheduling tactic on ChillerTV's part since that other network's undead juggernaut is on vaycay 'til March 2012.
The tagline for the ChillerTV network, "Scary Good", is the real deal Lucille, because as good as AMC's The Walking Dead is, Steve Niles' Remains makes TWD, look like a kiddie show.
A catastrophic energy shockwave accident has transformed all but a handful of the world's population into zombies. These undead not only feed on the living, they feed on each other. And if the mood strikes they will even feed on themselves while being eaten by another zombie!
Remains is funny, and there are hotties of both sexes. Throw in beautiful Nevada desert location and you have a textbook example of classic sci-fi/horror.
Bonus! There's a webisode prequel: Road To Reno that is "scary good"[see video below].
Double Bonus! Steve Niles is on twitter @SteveNiles and is responsive to fans questions and comments.
If you missed Remains December 16th airing, no need to fret, ChillerTV has scheduled 8 repeat airings TVGuide.com the first repeat airing on Wednesday December 21st at 8:00pm est. Please check your local listings.

New SHOWTIME Pilot to Begin Production in 2012
LOS ANGELES, CA (December 5th, 2011)–Multi-talented actor Liev Schreiber has been cast in the title role in the SHOWTIME pilot RAY DONOVAN, a drama set in Hollywood, California. Production will begin in Los Angeles in early 2012. RAY DONOVAN is a SHOWTIME production and is created by Southland creator Ann Biderman. Biderman, Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will executive produce.
Ray Donovan is Hollywood’s best professional “fixer.” He’s the one called in to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the city’s elite. He can make anyone’s problem disappear, except the ones created by his own family. The series, which has comedic undertones, will take a novelistic look at contemporary Los Angeles.
Considered one of the finest actors of his generation, Liev Schreiber’s repertoire of resonant, humanistic and oftentimes gritty portrayals have garnered him praise in film, theatre and television. Schreiber recently completed production on P.J. Hogan’s comedy Mental alongside Toni Collette and will next star in Mira Nair’s thriller The Reluctant Fundamentalist opposite Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland. Schreiber will also be seen in Goon with Jay Baruchel and Seann William Scott.
Schreiber's many feature credits include Salt with Angelina Jolie; X-Men Origins: Wolverine; Defiance with Daniel Craig; Repo Men; The Painted Veil; The Manchurian Candidate opposite Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington; The Sum of All Fears; Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock; Kate & Leopold; Every Day; Michael Almereyda’s Hamlet; Spring Forward; The Hurricane; A Walk on the Moon with Diane Lane; The Daytrippers; Nora Ephron's Mixed Nuts; and Wes Craven's Scream trilogy.
His portrayal of Orson Welles in Benjamin Ross' “RKO 281” brought Schreiber Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominations. His other telefilm credits include George C. Wolfe's “Lackawanna Blues” and John Erman's “The Sunshine Boys”, opposite Woody Allen and Peter Falk. As one of the documentary medium's foremost narrators, he has lent his voice to such works as “Mantle”, “:03 from Gold”, “A City on Fire: The Story of the ‘68 Detroit Tigers”, “Nova”, and “Nature”.
Last year, Schreiber received his third Tony nomination for his role in Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge" alongside Scarlett Johansson. His performance as Ricky Roma in the 2005 Broadway revival of David Mamet's “Glengarry Glen Ross”, directed by Joe Mantello, earned him his first Tony Award. He was again a Tony nominee for his portrayal of Barry Champlain in the 2007 Broadway revival of Eric Bogosian's “Talk Radio”, directed by Robert Falls, Other stage work includes the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park production of “Macbeth”, in the lead role opposite Jennifer Ehle, directed by Moisés Kaufman; “Iago”; “Hamlet”; “Henry the V”; and “Cymbeline”.
In 2005, Schreiber made his feature directorial debut with Everything is Illuminated, which he also adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling novel of the same name. The film, starring Elijah Wood and Eugene Hutz, was named one of the year's 10 Best by the National Board of Review.

Fans anxious for the third season of FX' Justified will only have to be patient for a few more weeks. Justified returns Tuesday January 17, 2012 at 10:00pm
The 2nd season's finale "Bloody Harlan" lived up to it's title. There were explosions, and gunfire. Hobbled Dickey Bennett is the sole survivor of the real estate scheming, drug dealing Bennett clan. Corrupt sheriff and eldest son Doyle Bennett took a bullet right between the eyes courtesy of the Feds. Matriarch Mags took a non-lethal shot to the leg from tragic teen Loretta McCready. But remorseful and grieving Mags ultimately opted to put an end to her troubles by her own hand, by pouring a taste of her 'apple pie' moonshine in a poisoned glass. The same method she used to kill Loretta's dad.
Series hero U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens emerged [for the most part] unscathed. The Kentucky born and bred, deliciously long legged, sure eyed sharp-shooter, smart-ass, baddass lawman will be back to pursue new villains. With his childhood friend and sometimes nemesis Boyd Crowder having his back when it doesn't conflict with his other side of legal doings.
Season 3 brings Neal McDonough, Mykelti Williamson, and Carla Gugino to the cast. Fans will remember McDonough from the large screen from Captain America: The First Avenger and tv's Desperate Housewives. Williamson from Forest Gump and 24. Gugino from Californication and Sucker Punch.
In Justified Gugino will play Karen Goodall, assistant director of the U.S. Marshals. The history between herself and Raylan is not pleasant. Williamson plays Limehouse, a Harlan citizen and not a model one. Limehouse is a man who has and will do what he's gotta do to get ahead in the world by whatever means necessary. McDonough plays Quarles a gangsta from Detroit figuring Harlan to be ripe for the picking now that Mags is gone.
But what Quarles hasn't figured on is Limehouse, who isn't about to give up what he's already acquired much less surrender what could be to come. Seeing as he was already establishing himself as Harlan's new crime boss in the weeks before Mags' death, Crowder is also not planning to move over for the marauder from the motor city.
Production of the third season's 13 episodes began in October 2011. According to the episode listings at imdb 3 of the 13 episodes have been completed.
