23 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When last we saw Olivia Pope, she was flying off into the sunset (or maybe just flying off) with Jake by her side—leaving behind a broken Fitz, who’d just lost his son and realized some horrible things about his father. D.C. now rests in the hands of Olivia’s own father, who once again took over B-613. So what awaits the team when season four starts up? How about a new face?

No one loves a #humblebrag, but we'll make an exception for Ellen DeGeneres -- and for news about "Scandal." Earlier today the TV star tweeted the following:

So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops.

As if we wanna-be Gladiators aren't obsessing over the next season of "Scandal" already, stockpiling our cabinets with Liv's favorite wine glasses and fancy jammies! That's okay; we wanted an excuse to re-watch old episodes of "Arrested Development," featuring de Rossi as the shallow, self-absorbed Lindsay Bluth.

In the meantime, we're wondering what will happen on the next season of "Scandal" and where Portia fits into all of this. Will she try and fill Olivia's stilettos at Pope & Associates now that Liv's jetted off with [spoiler], after [spoiler] told [spoiler] about [spoiler], [spoiler] dies, and [spoiler] celebrating returning »

Did Portia De Rossi Record Drunken Fights With Wife Ellen DeGeneres?

15 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Portia De Rossi, who reportedly finished up a stint in rehab for alcoholism recently, allegedly taped her wife Ellen DeGeneres during a drunken fight.

Was Portia Taping Drunk Fights With Ellen?

Prior to her reported 30-day stay in a rehab facility, De Rossi, 41, allegedly taped arguments she’d had with DeGeneres, 56. The Arrested Development actress reportedly hoped to show her wife’s less positive attributes in action.

“Portia secretly taped some of their arguments. She was drunk,” a source told InTouch magazine. “Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating.”

“Portia going to rehab was the first step in saving their marriage,” the source added. “They want their marriage to work more than anything.”

Portia's Alleged Rehab Stint

Earlier this month, an insider told the tabloid about De Rossi’s unconfirmed visit to rehab, claiming that Ellen’s “domineering” personality led De Rossi to seek solace in alcohol and prescription pills. »

Meredith Vieira: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Her New Talkshow

14 July 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If anybody can make a new syndicated daytime talkshow work, it’ll be Meredith Vieira.

The veteran journo and TV host ably demonstrated her skills in her Monday luncheon session to tubthump her NBCUniversal-distribbed yakker at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Vieira thoroughly charmed the crowd as she spoke about her motivation for diving back into the daytime grind, how her show will focus more on everyday people with inspiring stories rather than celebs and plans to mix up her show with music and comedy bits. “The Meredith Vieira Show” bows Sept. 8. In many markets, it will be carried in an afternoon block with NBCU’s “The Steve Harvey Show” and Ellen DeGeneres’ yakker.

Here are 5 tidbits from the chat. Vieira ended the session sitting cross-legged on the stage (in a white suit, no less) while taking questions from the scrum.

It was the ratings, of course. But NBC’s top entertainment executives went on record to give a little more insight into their decision-making process on canceling Community and The Michael J. Fox Show last season.

NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters at his Television Critics Association press tour session in Beverly Hills on Sunday that the Community fandom’s “six seasons and a movie” mantra had nothing to do with the network.

“That sixth season thing was created by them — I’m surprised they didn’t say ’10 seasons and a movie,’” the executive said. “And before my time »
