"American Horror Story" returns in October with a tweak to the title. It will be called "American Horror Story: Asylum," FX and producer Ryan Murphy announced Wednesday. That's a fitting title since the series will be set in an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange's character, who will not be creepy Constance Langdon, the woman she played to perfection in the show's first season. The new season is set in 1964 and stars Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes.

Is Chicago having a big year at the movies or what? One of the spring's biggest films ("Divergent") was set here, filmed here and based on a book by a local author. Now two of summer's biggest movies, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and "Jupiter Ascending," plop the city back on giant screens, this time with even bigger stars (Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum/Mila Kunis, respectively). Yes, there also are "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" sequels on the way, plus "Guardians of the Galaxy," Angelina Jolie being evil in "Maleficent" and more Shailene Woodley in "The Fault in Our Stars.

Rarely has this reporter been so unable to contain her unbridled glee at interviewing a celebrity. I told everyone who would sit still long enough about this interview. I sweated the questions, mumbling to myself, "Shut up, Georgia, that one is so stupid. Think, dammit. Think!" But this, dear readers, was no mundane famous person. This was RuPaul, queen of queens, star of stars and host of "RuPaul's Drag Race" on Logo, which returns for its fourth season at 8 p.m. Monday, bringing three Chicago-based queens with it. On "Drag Race," the creme de la creme of the nation's drag queens...

"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,...

Ask Tom Riley what he enjoys most about playing a young Leonardo da Vinci in "Da Vinci's Demons" and he doesn't say the sword-fighting or the inventions or the romance - but his answer includes all those things. "Oh man, the unexpected, the not knowing what's next. I would say reading the script for the next episode and thinking, 'Holy shit, we're doing that?'" the British actor said during a recent phone interview, adding this about the 15th century inventor/artist/free thinker: "I just kind of love his unpredictability.

My heart sank when I heard the new season of FX's spy thriller "The Americans" ( 9 p.m. Wednesday, FX; 4 stars out of 4 ) would focus more on Cold War spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings' family. Remember how the momentum of Showtime's "Homeland" crashed to a halt whenever the story turned to Nicholas Brody's moody daughter Dana? Nothing kills drama like a sulking teen. "The Americans" focuses more on family in Season 2, but not at the expense of the suspense that made the first season a must-see.

For the past two seasons, drama behind-the-scenes of "Community" has caused more buzz than the comedy onscreen. Fighting between creator Dan Harmon, NBC and actor Chevy Chase resulted in Harmon's departure before Season 4. Costars Joel McHale and Jim Rash say things are looking up now that Harmon has returned for Season 5, premiering with back-to-back episodes at 7 p.m. Jan. 2 on NBC. "The monarchy has been restored and things are as they should...

In the first season of "Chosen" ( 2:01 a.m. Thursday, crackle.com; 3 stars out of 4 ), a Los Angeles lawyer and his family couldn't avoid a deadly game of kill-or-be-killed, finally succumbing to the twisted desires of the mysterious puppet master who was pulling their strings. The second season continues the story of Ian Mitchell (Milo Ventimiglia), his ex-wife Laura (Nicky Whelan), and their daughter, who are all on the run after Laura received an order she did not wish to carry out in the Season 1 cliffhanger.

Darth Maul returns to "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" this fall, and he looks pissed. Everyone's favorite Sith badass looms large in the first trailer for Season 5 of the animated series, which will premiere in September on Cartoon Network. "Our combined strength will be rewarded," Maul tells his brother, Savage Opress, in the trailer, "and Kenobi, this Sith pretender, Dooku, and all our enemies will fall.
