The pay cable TV networks' battle for viewers will heat up Feb. 9 when HBO presents a "Game of Thrones" special. "Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing" will premiere at 7:45 p.m. that Sunday before a new episode of "True Detective" at 8 p.m. Is HBO trying to draw viewers away from the midseason premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead," which returns at 8 p.m. the same night? Discuss. "Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing" recaps the series so far, and will preview the upcoming fourth season.

HBO gives fans a little peak at what's coming to the cable network in 2014 in its annual year-end video, including a first look at the new season of "Game of Thrones" and several new series. We see Tyrion in shackles, Joffrey watching a celebration, Jaime Lannister flipping through a book, Sansa smiling and someone on horseback riding toward a group of people in front of a cliff. It's a nice little tease for fans that begins at the 1:36 mark. The fourth season of "GoT" begins in the spring.

Elijah Wood doesn't think he's much like Ryan, the character he plays on the FX comedy "Wilfred"--at least he hopes not. "Ryan's really struggling most of the time and is constantly questioning himself and the world around him and is not always in the most comfortable of places," he said Monday, "so hopefully none of that has rubbed off on me. " "Wilfred" officially begins its second season at 9 p.m. June 28, but at 9:30 p.m. Thursday FX will...

Dule Hill sounded a little bit like his always-hungry character Gus on USA Network's "Psych" when he came to Chicago this week. The actor ate a pineapple and Canadian bacon pizza at Giordano's on Thursday and planned to go to Lou Malnati's for more pizza Friday. "Why not?" he said. "I'm in Chicago. " (Update: I see from his Twitter feed he made it to Lou Malnati's.) Hill is in town to promote USA's third annual Characters Unite Month, which builds on its ongoing public service commitment to combat prejudice and discrimination.

I was a fan of "The Borgias" during its first season, even though creator Neil Jordan occasionally got tripped up as he jumped from big-screen movies to writing a weekly TV series. Based on the first four episodes of the new season, I'd say Jordan has figured things out. "The Borgias" ( 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime; 3.5 stars out of 4 ) still overflows with delicious intrigues, sex and deadly politics, but it now has an energy and constant forward momentum the first season lacked. Last season we saw Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons,...
