Sunday night was a busy one, as new midseason TV series were premiering all over the place.
The most hyped of them all was probably "The Cape," NBC's newest entry in the superhero genre (read more on that here). Family man and cop Vince Faraday (David Lyons) is framed as being the masked killer Chess, and inadvertently fakes his own death.

After much speculation, it's finally official: Elijah Wood has joined the cast of Peter Jackson's two-part "The Hobbit" saga.
While that may be fantastic news for "Lord of the Rings" fans, it also has followers of the J.R.R. Tolkien book series scratching their heads, since Wood's character, Frodo, doesn't appear in "The Hobbit" novel and wasn't even born when the action takes place.

"We recognize historical fiction is an important medium for storytelling and commend all the hard work and passion that has gone into the making of the series, but ultimately deem this as the right programming decision for our network."
