Plus, meet the newest Bachelor, Londoner Matt Grant, who will start his journey next Monday!

Finally, today is the series premiere of Canterbury’s Law on FOX at 8/7c. This drama follows Elizabeth Canterbury (Julianna Margulies, Carol from ER), a rebelliuous defense atorney who’s willing to bend the law in order to protect the wrongfully accused. It also stars Ben Shenkman (Angels in America), Aidan Quinn (films such as Desperately Seeking Susan and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee), Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls) and relative newcomer Trieste Kelly Dunn (guest starred in Dawson’s Creek and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).
