CBS announces intentions to repurpose Showtime hits for prime-time programming...with edits, of course.

Dexter may cut up CBS

It isn't uncommon to see CBS populated with ruthless serial killers who have little to no regard for justice or human life. Shows such as CSI, Cold Case, and Criminal Minds are often centered around crack teams of investigators trying to put serial killers on the loose behind bars.

Now it appears that the network may be adding one more serial killer to its mix, but this time he's the centerpiece. Showtime's Dexter, the series starring Michael C. Hall as a murderous antihero (and forensic scientist for the Miami Police Department), may get bumped up into CBS' programming schedule along with other programs from the pay-cable network, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Showtime is part of the CBS Corporation.

Showtime's period drama bequeathed with a third-season pickup; Jonathan Rhys Meyers returning to the throne.

Tudors crowned with third season

The guillotine hasn't dropped on The Tudors yet. Showtime today announced that its pricey period drama has been picked up for a third season, which will debut in 2009.

The Tudors chronicles (with some embellishing) the lavish, tumultuous, and downright sexy life of King Henry VIII, played by Irish superstud Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Velvet Goldmine). The drama is currently airing its second season.

"The Tudors is now a fixture for us at Showtime and we're on our way to completing the entire saga of all six wives of Henry VIII," Showtime president of Entertainment Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. "We are enormously proud of this show, the extraordinary cast, and the production team that recreates the grandeur of the Renaissance year in and year out."

The next chapter of The Tudors will focus on Henry's marriages to his third and fourth wives, Jane Seymour (Anita Briem ...

Previously sober Jonathan Rhys Meyers charged with public drunkenness and breach of peace in Ireland airport.

Tudors star arrested, drunk

England's King Henry VIII was well known for his affinity for debauchery, and apparently the actor portraying the king in Showtime's The Tudors doesn't mind having a good time, either.

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested on charges of public drunkenness and breach of peace on Sunday at the Dublin airport in Ireland, according to the Associated Press. The 30-year-old actor was in Dublin to promote his movie August Rush on a talk show, and was on his way back to London.

The Irish actor allegedly caused a ruckus when police officers asked him to calm down. He was later released on bail.

Rhys Meyers, who also starred in the films Match Point, Velvet Goldmine, and Mission: Impossible III, spent time in a California rehabilitation clinic for alcohol issues earlier this year. He checked out a month later and said he had been sober ever since.

Creative Emmys awarded, Catholics mad at Griffin

The main course of the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards won't be served until this Sunday, but over the weekend, appetizers were handed out in the form of the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. This batch of Emmys honors technical achievements such as makeup, casting, editing, music, costuming, and more, as well as guest appearances by actors and animated programs.

HBO was the big winner of the evening, taking home 15 awards in total, three more than second-place NBC. Reps for the pay-cable network walked to the podium for programs such as Rome, Deadwood, When the Levees Broke, and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. Wounded Knee won the most awards of any program with five, followed by BBC/Discovery Channel's Planet Earth and NBC's Tony Bennett: An American Classic with four apiece.

Guest acting awards--divided by gender and genre--went to Leslie Caron for Law & Order: Special ...

True Blood: Cut to Partially-Eaten Pie
Cheesy, suggestive cues continue the show's campy fearlessness as True Blood's third season borders on a parody of itself. But the show is still oh-so delicious.

The Tudors focuses on the life and romances of the young King Henry VIII. The first series takes a look at the often overlooked, early political relationships as well as Henry's trysts with such notable women as Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn.
The second series looks at King Henry's struggle with the Pope over his divorce, and his marriage to Anne Boleyn as well as the creation of the Church of England.
The third series focuses on the people's response to the creation of a new national Church and on the king's third and fourth marriage. The series is shot on location in Ireland. Michael Hirst, writer of the Oscar-winning movie Elizabeth, is the series creator, writer and executive producer.moreless
