A&E Network has ordered 10 new episodes of the drama, which is in its second season. Production is scheduled to begin in the fall. The series, a contemporary prequel to "Psycho" that explores how troubled Norman Bates' psyche unravels during his teen years, stars Freddie Highmore as Norman and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma Bates. "Bates Motel," which drew 4.6 million viewers in its second season premiere, is the network's top-rated series in the 18-49 age demographic.

HBO has spent years looking for another hit like "The Sopranos," and it may have found it in "Game of Thrones. " Season 4 of the epic fantasy opened at 9 p.m. Sunday night averaging 6.6 million total viewers, according to Nielsen. Those are the best numbers for HBO since 2007, when the mob drama "Sopranos" ended with 11.9 million viewers. PREMIERE: Season 4 recap of 'Game of Thrones' It's also a huge bump over the 4.4 million viewers for the season 3 premiere in 2013.

Call it anguished schmoozing. Bill Cosby's interview with Dan Rather is remarkable far less for its emotional content than for the fact that it occurred at all. Just 11 days after the murder of his son, Ennis, the grieving father summons CBS News anchor Rather and a camera crew to his New York studio to chat intimately and candidly about Ennis, the slaying and its impact on him and his wife, Camille?

The five Academy Award nominees for animated short film this year split up into two disparate groups: happy meal and white tablecloth. Originally shown with the Disney feature film "Frozen," "Get a Horse!" is the best known and most seen of the bunch. As with "Saving Mr. Banks," Disney has mined its archives to bring us a 3-D meta update of 1920s Mickey Mouse cartoons. It's a blend of folly and nostalgia that won a nomination over "The Blue Umbrella," the whimsical Pixar short that ran before "Monsters University.

Some may wonder why Alec Baldwin is doing a talk show. Others may be puzzled why it's apparently set in a steakhouse.  At any rate, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin" premiered at 10 p.m. Friday with about 654,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. (Yes, evidently 10 p.m. qualifies as "up late" for MSNBC's audience.)  That performance wasn't too bad for a Friday night, but it was nowhere near the 1.5 million that showed up for Sean Hannity's program on Fox News Channel. However, building a talk show following takes time.  PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments The critics weren't in a forgiving mood.

Ascending British actress Andrea Riseborough's face is an exquisite road map of pain, fear and resolve in "Shadow Dancer," a thriller that explores questions of loyalty against a backdrop of Northern Ireland politics in the early '90s. Riseborough plays Belfast-born young mother Collette, a tragedy-stricken daughter of the Troubles. After she's caught trying to blow up a London subway, an MI5 officer (Clive Owen) taps her to spy on her IRA brothers. Riseborough captures this queasy situation with grimly haunting grace.
