CBS's newest thriller starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott is just like a real-life politician: slick, impeccably styled and often displays touches of brilliance. Unfortunately, it works too hard and too fast to get your vote.
Collette plays Dr. Ellen Sanders, a surgeon who was selected to operate on the President. McDermott is a rogue FBI agent who takes her family hostage in order to force Sanders to kill POTUS during surgery. Toss in Tate Donovan has her filandering, lying husband, and her darling children--a daughter concealing a pregnancy and a drug dealin' son--and poor Dr. S...

While promoting his new movie, "Runner Runner" and preparing for this weekend's iHeartRadio Music Festival, the overachieving Justin Timberlake walloped fans with a new single, "TKO" on Thursday night after teasing fans throughout the day on social media.
The uptempo song details a twisted relationship with a girl who "hits below the belt." Snap Judgment: the track is a certified banger in which JT deftly sings his face off. "TKO" sounds more contemporary than earlier singles like "Suit & Tie" and "Take Back The Night" which have a retro vibe.
"TKO" is the second single off Timberlak...
