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.

Nashville closed its last episode of 2013 with a double whammy: Not one but two possible fatalities in an accidentally shot Peggy and a suicidal, staring-down-a-locomotive Will.
Dee Johnson, the ABC series’ showrunner, took some time to chat with TVLine about how Wednesday’s episode will affect the rest of the season, how the death of either character might play out and whose romantic storyline may just be beginning.

[Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t watched Tuesday night’s episode of Person of Interest!]
After setting up the possibility that Detective Fusco (Kevin Chapman) would be the one to kick it, Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan and Ep Greg Plageman threw audiences for a loop by sending beloved cop Joss Carter (Taraji P. Henson) to an early grave on tonight’s jaw-dropping episode.
EW talked with Nolan and Plageman about what went into the decision to kill off Carter and how they managed to keep it a secret from…well, pretty much everyone. (Also, check out our interview with Henson!)
Entertainment Weekly: You guys, I’m devastated. This is awful!

The first season of Lifetime's over-the-top soap "Devious Maids" came to a satisfying end Sunday (Sept. 22) when the Powells stopped their divorce proceedings to commit murder. Nothing like hate to rekindle love.
Oh, and speaking of murder (spoilers coming right up) ...
Philippe did it.
The ex-husband and current fiancé of Genevieve (Susan Lucci) killed Flora, which is where we all joined the story. Adrian and Evelyn Powell (Tom Irwin and Rebecca Wisocky) killed him.
Everyone except perpetually clueless Genevieve realized that Philippe is evil. Just as he was about to kill another maid, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), the Powells slipped him a drug and staged his suicide. They did not do this to protect Marisol, but rather for Adrian to exact his revenge on Philippe for killing "his maid."
Yes, this 1 percenter thinks that people belong to him. To remind us how different life is for those who have $100 million, when »
Did Marc Cherry really just kill off Taylor?
If that weren't surprising enough, it appears that Philippe (Stephen Collins) killed Flora, the maid.
Given that people have appeared dead and were not, and that the season finale, which creator Cherry promises will tie up all loose ends, airs in a week, we can't be certain of either.
What we do know is: Philippe is evil, Rosie is reunited with her son, Zoila uses her manipulative ways to protect her daughter and Evelyn finally has enough.
A hired killer, doing Philippe's bidding, was supposed to whack Marisol (Ana Ortiz). Marisol was fleeing the Stoppards' home after Michael (Brett Cullen) warned her that Philippe figured out who she really is: the mother of the young man falsely accused of killing Flora, »
Marvel has reached a settlement agreement in a long-running lawsuit filed by Ghost Rider creator Gary Friedrich over ownership of the character. While the settlement hasn't been fully executed, both sides, "have amicably agreed to resolve all claims." The terms of the settlement agreement were not made public at this time, with Marvel retaining the right to use the character in future projects.
Back in June, Gary Friedrich won an appeal over Marvel, overturning the comic book studio's victory and set up a trial slated to begin in November, before the settlement came through. Gary Friedrich worked as a freelancer for Marvel in the 1970s, creating the Ghost Rider character who first appeared in 1972's Marvel's Spotlight #5. The primary issue of the case was whether Friedrich contributed the character as a "work for hire," which would mean that Marvel retains all ownership rights and Friedrich would have no entitlement to the copyright renewal term. »
As the first season of "Devious Maids" builds toward the end, a major clue about who was involved with Flora, the murdered maid, is dropped in Sunday's (Aug. 25) episode.
And Olivia, (Valerie Mahaffey), Michael's first wife, hangs herself from the tree in front of Michael and Taylor's (Brett Cullen, Brianna Brown) house during their dinner party. Not quite the second course they were expecting after announcing that Taylor is pregnant.
Another major story line has Remi Delatour (Drew Van Acker) returning from rehab. Despite Valentina's (Edy Ganem) worry that he will blame her for being sent there when his massive cocaine habit resurfaced, he appears as in love with her as she's always been with him.
Remi is one of the big surprises of the episode. Not just because he kept his »
It isn't yet obvious who killed Flora (Paula Garces), though a few minutes with her and one understands why she evokes homicidal thoughts. A flashback shows Michael (Brett Cullen) offering her hush money for sex she had with his client. Flora sneers at the amount.
She demands more, telling Michael that she was raped. Michael's initially incredulous because she had been a prostitute.
Flora explains that of course prostitutes can be raped, and adds that she is pregnant. She doesn't name the rapist or the father, but they were different men.
This episode is all about getting priorities straight, as these four plot points prove.
A week ago I knew very little about Justified. It was a show that had been recommended to me on a number of occasions since it first debuted in 2010, but one that I’d just never gotten around to watching. I had a vague idea that it was about a detective of some sort, and that an actor I like a lot, Timothy Olyphant, was in the lead role, but not much more than that.
Luckily for me, this week sees the release of Justified Season 4 on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as the Season 1-4 box-set, the latter of which I was able to get my hands on to put together this feature. I decided to set myself a viewing challenge and catch up with the entirety of the show so far in just seven days. Four seasons. 52 episodes. Approximately 36 hours of television goodness. An extremely attractive, but also incredibly daunting prospect. »

Aside from nasty gossip, safecracking and lying, this Sunday's (Aug. 11) episode of Lifetime's "Devious Maids" is really very sweet.
It's as if everyone needed to take a little break from the over-the-top situations. It's still a telenovela, though.
A maid walks in a couple having sex in the kitchen, a housekeeper is diagnosed with cancer and the seeds to an unorthodox marriage are planted.
Broke, because her business manager ran off with all of her money, Genevieve decided the only way to strike it rich again was to marry rich, a scenario that's always worked for her.
You've got to hand it to her. Other people »
Now halfway through the season, "Devious Maids" brings a few plot points to a boil this episode.
Flirtations building since the beginning are consummated. Two women saw their fortunes change abruptly and finally, someone got the punch in the face he had been begging for.
Not that we're condoning violence, but to watch Adrian Howell (Tom Irwin) is to want to slap him. Hard.
With that in mind, here are the five moments we were waiting for that erupted this episode:
1) Genevieve (Susan Lucci) is broke. She had no visible means of support, only six ex-husbands. Genevieve does rich so well, she really is nobility in search of a country.
She floats over her realm, her mansion, with its gardeners, maids and the various people who pamper her. When her business manager takes a powder, with all of her money, Michael (Brett Cullen) tries explaining to her that she will need to move, »
Does any character on "Devious Maids" understand boundaries?
Of course not! And that is why it's so much fun.
If we wanted real life, we would turn off the TV. But it's a fair chance in real life no one is polishing our Rolls Royce, wearing couture gowns to dinner or accompanying us to assist in the ever-so-difficult chore of selecting vegetables at the market.
The third episode does not disappoint. Each character is only more of what he or she was in the pilot and second episode. So far, only Genevieve (Susan Lucci) is proving truly good, but she is ridiculous, which works so well on her.
From the beginning, we knew Marisol (Ana Ortiz) was different, not a real maid. She's too confident. That's not a dis to the other maids, as no one is exactly a shrinking violet, but there is a level of subservience in the »

"Devious Maids" has had so much buzz surrounding it for so long that the Lifetime show, which premiered Sunday (June 23), had to be terrific.
Granted, there will be critics. But those who loved "Desperate Housewives" will recognize the sensibility of its creator, Marc Cherry, and one of its stars, Eva Longoria (who's an exec producer). Plus there's a whole lot of over-the-top telenovela drama.
Set in the rarefied world of Beverly Hills, the show opens at a party in a mansion.
"I think what you people do is heroic," the imperious Evelyn Powell (Rebecca Wisocky, "True Blood") says in the series' opening line. The stately redhead in a satin seafoam gown gives momentary kudos to the great work maids do, then her voice turns steely and she says to Flora (Paula Garces): "I am in awe of your determination to succeed in this great country of ours. That said, »
Actress Sarah Shahi plays the mysterious Samantha Shaw on the intriguing CBS drama, Person of Interest. She must be feeling the love right about now because the show is bumping up her involvement. Shahi has been promoted to series regular status. Get ready to see more, more, more.
For a character who was simply introduced to the series in the second season in a multi-episode arc, this is quite an accomplishment. She will join the other regulars, Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, and Taraji P. Henson. CBS president Nina Tassler announced confirmed the news to THR.
Shahi’s character, Shaw, is just as capable as Caviezel’s John Reese. She has a penchant for taking out terrorists before they have a chance to attack.
When he role first began turning heads the actress has no clue that this promotion might one day come, saying, “All I’ve been told is that it’s a multi-episode arc, »

Today’s photos from an action-packed, upcoming episode of Person of Interest, titled “Zero Day”, reveal a familiar face. Yes, that’s the lovely and talented Amy Acker reprising her role on the CBS drama.
I’m tickled that J.J. Abrams is giving Acker, a favorite of mine, more work. The actress is already a darling of Mr. Joss Whedon, who hired her as his Beatrice for Much Ado About Nothing and gave her a role in The Cabin in the Woods. Of course she’s also appeared in a number of his shows, to include Angel and Dollhouse. Abrams has also used Acker in the past. She appeared in the final season of Alias. Great minds think alike!
As for today’s photos, they reveal that our trio of crime fighters, Reese, Mr. Finch and Detective Carter will have their hands full during “Zero Day,” which is seasons 2′s »
