It’s a good thing This Is Us tells its stories out of order — otherwise, Milo Ventimiglia would be out of a job. Fortunately, the show’s non-linear storyline allows for plenty of flashbacks and exposition, so we’ll still see plenty of Jack Pearson this season. In fact, Ventimiglia told us we’ll delve even further into Jack and Rebecca’s love story in the new episodes. (Click on the media bar below to hear Milo Ventimiglia)
Having been a judge on the show since its very first season, Adam Levine has literally heard (and sometimes seen) hundreds — if not thousands — of hopeful singers on The Voice’s stage. With the show now going into its 15th cycle, Levine is incredibly impressed by the performers he’s heard so far, and he’s a bit amazed that the talent can still be so strong, so many years into the show’s run.

Procedurals tend to be the longest-running shows on television, but if you’d told Mariska Hargitay back in 1999 that her new show, Law & Order: SVU, would still be on 20 seasons later, she probably would have laughed at you. After all, at the time, only one TV drama (Gunsmoke) had ever crossed the 20-year threshold, so who could blame her for being incredulous? Yet here we are, at the start of the 2018-2019 television season, and SVU is about to begin its record-tying 20th year. (One of the shows it’s tying, along with Gunsmoke, is the show SVU was spun off from, Law & Order.) She may not be laughing now, but Hargitay still finds it amazing and unbelievable that her show’s still going strong after all these years. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mariska Hargitay)
The 20th season of Law & Order: SVU premieres Thursday night at 9/8c on NBC.
