TV Roundup: Lindsay Lohan is 'Elizabeth Taylor Reincarnated,' According to Co-Star

Elizabeth Taylor is the role that Lindsay Lohan was always destined to play. At least according to her co-star. Plus, AMC doesn't want DISH customers to miss out on the premiere of The Walking Dead and CBS' Sherlock Holmes reboot Elementary premiered big. Oh, and there might be a Downton Abbey prequel in the works, which definitely calls for sherry toast.

Liz Taylor is Possibly Rolling Over in Her Grave
Lifetime is really milking this Lindsay Lohan thing for all it's worth. A new behind the scene featurette for the upcoming TV movie Liz & Dick, about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's tumultuous romance, puts Lohan's comeback front and center.

"Her first starring role in 5 years" the video boasts. "Lindsay in back" it blusters. Lohan's co-star, Grant Bowler, who plays Taylor's on-again-off-again husband, even goes so far as to say that the actress is "pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated." Bowler also added that Lindsay was "excellent to work with."

For her part, Lindsay says that she feels a unique connection to Elizabeth Taylor, who also dealt with intense public scrutiny. "I relate to her on a lot of levels," the often trouble star says. "Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it's true or not."

Liz & Dick premieres this November on Lifetime. You can check out a preview here.

Magic in the Air
Once Upon a Time doesn't premiere its highly-anticipated second season until Sunday, but we've seen the episode and we've got 11 not-too-spoilery tidbits for fans of the fairy tale drama.Click on over to get the scoop! It's oh-so-magical.

 Debuts Big, Last Resort So-So

CBS' new Sherlock Holmes drama, Elementary, had a strong first showing, nabbing 13.3 million viewers (3.1 in the 18-49 demo). The drama won the 10pm timeslot and improved on its Person of Interest lead in. The night's other buzzy new drama, Last Resort, didn't fare quite so well in the heavily competitive 8pm hour, which also featured the return of The Big Bang Theory and another night of X Factor auditions. The submarine drama launched to 9.1 million viewers with a 2.2 in the youth demo. Those ratings are just barely above what Charlie's Angels did in the same slot last season. If you haven't seen Last Resortyet, do yourself a favor and check it out. 

Ding! Breaking Bad Villain Heads to American Horror Story

Before They Were Crawleys

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes recently revealed to BBC that he'd love to do a prequel that explores the early courtship of Earl and Lady Grantham. "They had a slightly troubled courtship, because she was in love with him before they married, as we know, and he married her entirely for her money," he mused during the Bafta Screenwriters' Lecture series. Yeah, we would totally watch that. Read full story.
