TV News: Dusk, Rake, Thrones, Bates, Dead

From Dusk Till Dawn
The El Rey Network has released two new photos from the “From Dusk Till Dawn” series, the first showcasing stars D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as the Gecko Brothers and the second of Eiza Gonzalez as vampire stripper Santanico Pandemonium. Check out the photos at Culture Map, while the series itself is set to debut on March 11th.

Fox midseason drama “Rake,” the U.S. remake of the Australian dramedy, premiered on Thursday night to a 1.7 rating and 7.1 million viewers. That’s better than “Glee” in the timeslot last Fall, but “Rake” had a much stronger “American Idol” lead-in. [Source: The Live Feed]
