Showtime has given a second season to “United States of Tara.” The premium network has renewed the Toni Collette comedy about a woman with multiple personalities for another round. “Tara” has averaged 2.1 million per week, including repeat airings, which is better than “Dexter” and “Weeds” in their first seasons (the “Tara” number also doesn’t include DVR use or on-demand viewing). Helping matters: Sunday night’s fourth episode climbed 15% over the previous week.

As reported earlier, the animated “Mary and Max”, voiced by Toni Collette, Philip Seymor Hoffman and Eric Bana, opened this years Sundance Film Festival. Unfortunately, none of the stars attended the premiere (on the other hand we’re getting plenty of Toni these days anyway ;-) but the director of “Mary and Max”, Adam Elliot, and producer, Melanie Coombs, were in attendance, as was Sundance boss Robert Redford. You can find a couple reviews on the film at Variety, Cinematical and Coming Soon. “Mary and Max” will be shown next month at the Berlin Film Festival.
