NEWS ROUNDUP: SMASH Season 2; Burn Gorman Joins REVENGE, Barry Bostwick To SCANDAL

SMASH Season 2 Scoop: Showrunners Promise Same Show, Different Vibe
The NBC musical drama, one of the most talked about series in 2012, is back in February with a new showrunner (GOSSIP GIRL's Josh Safran), a new vibe and new castmembers. But according to Safran, viewers won't feel that the show itself is new.

"The stuff that you love from last year is still there, and the stuff that people thought maybe went off on tangents, we've looked at. Maybe bigger, more music. Maybe younger, in regards to the new castmembers," Safran said during Smash's panel at Sunday's Television Critic's Association Press Tour. Even though some changes are being made, Safran insisted that he didn't go into his new showrunner gig with plans to gut SMASH.

Samsung Multi-View: No more “I want to watch something else” arguments
Samsung wants to put an end to lounge arguments, adding a new feature to its latest TVs that allow two people to watch different shows – in up to Full HD resolution – simply by putting on a special pair of 3D glasses. Samsung Multi-View displays two different pictures on-screen simultaneously, each video stream being filtered out by one pair of glasses; meanwhile, speakers in the frames pipe through the correct audio.

TORCHWOOD's Burn Gorman to recur on REVENGE
Gorman will play Trask, a representative from the group previously aligned with Conrad (Henry Czerny) and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) and responsible for Emily's father's wrongful conviction.

Barry Bostwick joins SCANDAL
Bostwick will play President Fitzgerald Grant’s father. “Big Jerry,” as he is known, is described as both funny and overbearing, and was a political player in his day as well.
