Arnold Schwarzenegger is following up his stint as governor of California by returning to his showbiz roots. According to Entertainment Weekly, the former Governator is being turned into a cartoon superhero called -- what else? -- The Governator.

Comic legend Stan Lee is co-developing the comic book and corresponding cartoon TV show. "The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he'll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger," Lee told EW. "We're using all the personal elements of Arnold's life ... Only after he leaves the governor's office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood."

HBO Cancels 'In Treatment' Sessions

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 31st 2011 1:00AM

Dr. Paul Weston is closing his practice: HBO has pulled the plug on 'In Treatment,' the Gabriel Byrne drama that followed the therapy sessions of a psychologist and his clients. The show lasted three seasons.

Though the series was a critical success -- Byrne won a Golden Globe in 2009 and Glynn Turman and Dianne Wiest won Emmys for their performances in the first season -- it never performed well in the ratings, drawing only 259,000 viewers for its season 3 premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 25th 2010 5:00PM

For instance, you get therapy several times a week, in easily digested half-hour chunks.

'In Treatment' (9PM ET, HBO) is back, and it's as addictive as ever, especially now that Gabriel Byrne, who plays empathic shrink Paul Weston, has terrific actresses like Debra Winger and Amy Ryan to spar with.

The Show Girl Gets 'Dirty' with Mike Rowe, Talks 'In Treatment' & 'School Pride' (VIDEO)

Mike Rowe, 'Dirty Jobs'Mike Rowe does a lot of 'Dirty Jobs,' but this week I get him to do the one job that millions of people around the world do every single day, often multiple times a day. Any guesses? He also shares cold, hard cell phone picture evidence (shown here) that a lemur bite is serious business, and says he'd love to romance the main character on one of TV's funniest shows.

I've also got details on the latest season of 'In Treatment,' including new castmembers Debra Winger and Amy Ryan and what the airing schedule is like this year, since they love to change it up and confuse us all.

Then I catch up with Cheryl Hines and Denise Cramsey to talk about their new reality-renovation show 'School Pride,' which they say has "the biggest impact of any renovation show ever" ... and judging by the emotion it stirs in me, I might have to agree.

Coming to 'In Treatment': Debra Winger!

by Bob Sassone, posted May 5th 2010 9:45AM
Debra WingerShe made a big guest appearance on 'Law & Order' earlier this year, and now, Oscar-nominated actress Debra Winger has signed on as a regular cast member on HBO's 'In Treatment.' She'll play one of Dr. Paul Weston's (Gabriel Byrne) patients when the show returns for its highly anticipated third season later this year.

Winger is one of those actresses who used to be everywhere, and then, she, well, wasn't. She had big hits in the '80s with movies like 'An Officer and a Gentleman' and 'Terms of Endearment' -- and was even the voice of E.T.! -- but then she stayed away from Hollywood for awhile. When she returned, she was more selective about the roles she chose.
