For better or for worse, there’s a lot of Duck Dynasty news. First off, after pulling its Phil Robertson merchandise, Cracker Barrel put the items back on the shelf after being on the receiving end of outrage from Duck Dynasty fans. If you were thinking of getting a meal at Cracker Barrel as a thank you for taking action, you can cancel that gesture.
Speaking of the outrage, A&E increased the security at its New York headquarters after receiving death threats and “suspicious packages” from angry fans.
Adding a bit of irony, some people pointed out that the creator of Duck Dynasty, Scott Gurney, starred in The Fluffer, which is a movie Phil Robertson wouldn’t approve. (And yes, you can find screen caps of Gurney’s nude scenes with a bit of searching.)
The suspension of Phil Robertson doesn’t mean A&E will be editing »

Coleman will play Jim, a kind, empathetic pastor who is devastated by the death of his 16-year-old daughter, whose body was found in the desert. Although he's committed himself to charitable work, he's neglected the needs of his family, and, when questioned by the CSIs, seems to have a lack of connection when talking about his loss. Could the CSIs suspect him?

Oooh, mid-season finale! Or as we used to call it in the olden days, the last episode until the next one. Let’s jump right in …
And kick off with a flashback to the VP (Kate Burton) and her closet case husband (Jack Coleman) arguing. It quickly escalates from “you never empty the dishwasher” to “you’re a godless sodomite” to “you knew that when you married me.” But what breaks Sally is when he threatens to go on 60 Minutes, because we all know that exposure to 60 Minutes has led to many, many gruesome homicides.
So Sally reaches for a letter opener on her desk – the stabby kind that only people who plan on murdering someone have on hand – and plunges it into his back several times. Then she calls in Cyrus (Jeff Perry) for clean up duty.
Cyrus spends most of the episode with a serious case of the guilts. »

Scandal Recap – “A Door Marked Exit” Intensity-wise, the episode took a step back compared to last week’s episode. However, “A Door Marked Exit” found a way to tie up loose ends while setting the stage for some of next season’s plot lines. It began where the last episode left off, with Vice President Sally Langston (Kate Burton) still in shock over the murder of her husband, Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman). Her thoughts drifted between the fight and the aftermath as she tried to conceptualize what had happened. She called Cyrus Beane (Jeff Perry), who hired Quinn Perkins (Lindsay Dwyer) … Continue reading →

You know you're watching "Scandal" when the cover-up of a murder -- the murder of the vice president's husband, in fact -- is hardly the most shocking event of the episode.
The hit ABC drama went into its fall finale on Thursday (Dec. 12) with several balls in the air, what with the three insane cliffhangers left dangling last week. Not only did Sally Langston (Kate Burton) murder her philandering closeted husband, but Quinn (Katie Lowes) was ready to dispatch of Eli (Joe Morton) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) realized her mother (Khandi Alexander) wasn't the angel she thought.
The episode picked right up with Sally and Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman), giving us a peek into the epic fight over his tryst with James (Dan Bucatinsky) that resulted in a letter opener in his back. "I cannot wait until you meet your maker. I cannot wait until you are judged for your lies, »
Rowan was tossed out of B-613 and Huck dismissed Quinn, sending her straight into Charlie’s arms in Scandal’s winter finale, “A Door Marked Exit.”
Scandal Recap: eCyrus Covers Up Murder For Sally Langston
The episode began with Vice President Sally Langston (Kate Burton) reliving the murder of her philandering husband, Daniel Douglas (Jack Coleman), for Cyrus (Jeff Perry). She confronted him about the photos, furious with him for putting her chance at the Presidency at risk. Daniel Douglas had had enough and decided to leave her, but, as he walks towards the door, Sally picked up a letter opener from her desk and stabbed him repeatedly in the back. Cyrus is in shock, as is Sally, who cannot stop mumbling about evil, God and the devil. Going over the events leading up to Daniel Douglas’ death – the temptation, the set up, the pimping out of the husband – Cyrus »
The Today Show has apologized for a segment about the imposter sign language interpreter at the Nelson Mandela memorial. While discussing the incident, a producer appeared miming his own fake sign language but was quickly shut down by hosts Natalie Morales and Al Roker.
Guy Pearce. Sigh.
Julie Chen threw some shade in the direction of The View during an interview with Howard Stern and a follow-up interview with Extra. “The show has lost its way is my feeling because they don’t really talk about politics anymore and when they do, no one is really trying to hear what Jenny (McCarthy) is saying.” Every time I’ve tried to watch The View this season, the show has just been a mess. The compelling moments happen by accident.

Huck turned on Quinn and Cyrus and James hit a breaking point in their marriage in the newest episode of Scandal, “Yolo.”
Huck Tortures Quinn
The episode started where the last one left off, with Huck (Guillermo Díaz) in Quinn’s apartment getting ready to torture the truth out of her. Quinn (Katie Lowes) is duct-taped, lying on the floor, completely at Huck’s mercy. While Huck claims he doesn’t want to hurt her, he’s practically salivating at the thought of hurting her. Because they’re friends, he’s going to let her keep all her fingers and toes. Instead, he goes straight for the teeth. He’s only able to rip one out before he has to go help Liv (Kerry Washington) deal with her mother (Khandi Alexander).
Liv And Her Mother Run From Command
Liv, clearly unsettled by having her dead mother in her apartment, ditches »
Liv shows off this week’s $5,000 overcoat.
Let’s kick things off this week with the juicy gay bedroom farce involving Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and his totally reasonable, well-thought-out plan to gain leverage over the Vice President by Pimping Out His Own Husband! (And congrats to Backlot reader sophea who totally called that in the comments last week.)
I totally don’t understand why Cyrus doesn’t just hire some hot male escort to use as manbait, given that was exactly what he did last week with a woman. Maybe he’s exhausted the White House’s prostitution budget and needs to improvise? And you have to seriously wonder about the wisdom of a plan that even Mellie (Bellamy Young) considers too low and cautions you to be wary of endangering your marriage.
But Cyrus plows right ahead, telling James (Dan Bucatinsky) that to make up for being such a »

Well, it was bound to happen: Olivia Pope's ghost of a mother has found her.
After last week's horrifying trip into Mellie Grant's past, the Thursday (Nov. 21) episode of "Scandal" snapped its focus back onto She Who Wears the White Hat, Kerry Washington. And, as in most weeks, Liv was put through the ringer.
Not only did she lose a client (So long, Lisa Kudrow! We barely knew you!), but she regained her forbidden love and a zombie of a mom. First, the love. While Liv was busy at work with Opa to track down that person missing from the flight Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) down way back when, he continues to call her, now that he knows her dad is Rowan/Eli/the boogeyman (Joe Morton). She tells him to leave her alone, she smashes her Fitz phone, but, like Jake (Scott Foley) sadly says, she knows it won't stop him. »
When "Scandal" first premiered, Mellie Grant, as played by Bellamy Young, was nothing more than a Machiavellian Lady MacBeth -- the cold, villainous obstacle standing between our hero Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and the love of her life, President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn). But as the series has progressed, and as Thursday's (Nov. 14) episode made abundantly clear, Mellie has morphed into the tragic center of the hit ABC show; a woman who, if you're not rooting for yet, you ought to be.
Viewers have always had an idea of the sacrifices Mellie has made in her life so that Fitz could become, remain and succeed as President of the United States. We've heard about how she gave up her career as a lawyer, watched as she stood by a man who threw his love for another in her face; but it wasn't until tonight's episode that the series seemed to »
On ABC’s Scandal (Thursday, 10/9c), First Lady Mellie Grant made the ultimate sacrifice by inviting arch rival Olivia Pope to stand at Fitz’s side for the foreseeable future, running his reelection campaign. And while Liv has yet to accept the assignment, the overture crystallized the lengths to which Bellamy Young‘s Machiavellian magnolia will go to get what she wants — especially if, someday, maybe, that includes her husband’s affections.
TVLine invited Young to preview Mellie’s imminent foray into “fixing” a First Lady problem, reveal who’s about to “wig” out and ruminate on whether the First Marriage might possibly last. »

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Welcome to another episode of ‘Scandal’ where political manoeuvres and dangerous liaisons are the show’s bread and butter. Let’s see what happened this week, shall we?
Olivia and her dad Rowan are having possibly the awkward, most stilted conversation between a father and daughter, Liv vocally admitting that she’s just being silent to get through the dinner so that Rowan won’t start performing more power plays against his outspoken daughter and be more like her outspoken mother. Rowan disagrees. At the same time, Jake and Huck are breaking into Rowan’s home, the man himself entering just as Jake sneaks out with all of Rowan’s files on a memory stick. Nice job, boys!
At the White House, Mellie and Cyrus are trying to charm Leo Bergen in order to get him to run the re-election campaign for Fitz. Bergen is brutally honest about Fitz’s chances, »

No, no, no.
What Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Jake (Scott Foley) uncovered about Operation Remington on Thursday's (Oct. 31) episode of "Scandal" can't be true, can it? This is all a Halloween trick, right? Because there's no way that Olivia (Kerry Washington) will be able to handle this betrayal.
Alright, so, let's just get it out in the open. Huck and Jake, the B613 Brothers, spent the episode trying to piece together just what Operation Remington was with all the spy tactics only two shadow government operatives would possess. And what do they discover? The day of Remington, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) wasn't in Iran. He was in Iceland. The same day a Boeing 747 went down -- a 747 with Maya Lewis on its passenger list. Who's Maya Lewis, you ask? A woman who never took her husband's name. What's her husband's name, you demand? Pope.
That's right. It's looking like Fitz »
We Got Pope’D! | With the reelection machine revving up, Cyrus and Mellie court Leo Bergen, a top-shelf campaign manager, (played by Private Practice‘s Paul Adelstein) to keep Fitz in office. Leo, though, isn’t shy to list Potus’ liabilities — including but by no means limited to his “My Wife’s a Frigid Shrew Problem. »
