Press Release: Emmy®-nominated actor Josh Charles will recur in a season-long arc on the third season of MASTERS OF SEX, which premieres July 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe® nominee Michael Sheen and Emmy nominee Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, MASTERS OF SEX chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop-culture trajectory. Masters and Johnson’s research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. Best known to television audiences as Will Gardner on The Good Wife, Charles is set to play Daniel Logan, a self-made businessman working in the scent industry. In an attempt to bottle the smell of sex and market an aphrodisiac to the general public, Dan seeks out Masters and Johnson’s expertise on desire. A charismatic salesman, Dan’s involvement with Masters and Johnson becomes complicated. [Read more…]
Most Needed Integration: Just when we were thinking that MASTERS OF SEX’s Betty — played by the awesome Annaleigh Ashford — had become completely disconnected from the main story, she landed a job as Masters and Johnson’s secretary!

Most Efficient Use Of Time: When not shooting his literal partner-in-crime or being harangued by the ladies he’d kidnapped, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Levi found time to dash out to a Supercuts and ditch his long, flowing locks for a stylish new ’do!
Smartest Decision: Viewers voted not to reward BIG BROTHER’s Team America for the lame play they put on as part of a self-created challenge. “We decided to do something very entertaining,” said mastermind Frankie, proving not to understand the meaning of that word. [Read more…]
