Awkward stars Ashley Rickards, Beau Mirchoff, Nikki DeLoach, Jillian Rose Reed, and Brett Davern. In last night's Awkward season five and possibly series finale, there were some twists. Did you see them coming? Chessler previously said it was designed as a series finale, just in case it is the end. Did it feel like one, to you?

“My hope is that Faking It will be the first show that started what I call the post-gay era on television,” series creator Carter Covington tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We always tried to approach the storytelling as coming from a place beyond coming out stories and really exploring the lives of all of our characters, regardless of their sexuality. »

Tabitha Stephens is celebrating a big birthday today, though age 50 is probably not over-the-hill territory for a half-witch. It was 50 years ago today that “Bewitched” aired the episode “And Then There Were Three,” when Samantha and Darrin’s baby girl, Tabitha, is born. “Bewitched” star Elizabeth Montgomery was pregnant off-camera too during the show’s second season: her second son was born in October of 1965. On many TV shows, the birth of a baby has marked the beginning of the end of the show, as the young newcomer shatters the chemistry of the original cast or dilutes the a show’s premise. Not so for “Bewitched.” Viewers loved Tabitha and all the delightful storylines brought on by a child discovering her powers in a mortal home. The show ultimately aired for eight seasons. After several babies portrayed the growing Tabitha, Erin Murphy played the Stephens daughter for six years on the hit ’60s sitcom. »
