I’ve been trying to figure out a way to discuss last Sunday’s Game of Thrones but end up stuck trying to find a way to word it without being spoilery. However, The Daily Banter nicely sums up why it’s ridiculous to keep calling that one scene shocking when the whole episode was full of shocking brutality.
Tahmoh Penikett seems like The CW’s new featured hunk. The former Battlestar Galatica star recently showed up on Supernatural and Star Crossed. Now, E! reports that he’ll be appearing on the season finale of Reign.
One of the challenges of taking the fake news show format pioneered by The Daily Show to a premium channel like HBO — the lack of commercials. Really. Last Week Tonight producer Tim Carvell explains, “We realized early on, you don’t necessarily want to hear anybody talk to you for a half an hour straight. »

A baby is coming on Wednesday's episode of Bravo's “Flipping Out” whether the staff of Jeff Lewis Design is ready for it or not. Jenni Pulos is just about to give birth, but the staff of Jeff Lewis Designs has their focus on all the wrong things. In TheWrap's exclusive video, Jenni's due date approaches and the future mom contemplates all the possible scenarios. Apparently, there's a chance that giving birth will tear her you know what. And that has boss man Jeff Lewis fascinated, of course. See video: ‘Flipping Out's’ Jeff Lewis: NeNe Leakes Was ‘Regressing,’ Getting »

In the clip from "Back Flipping," Lewis and his team must design mini-cat doors for his cat-loving client in Pacific Palisades. The small door into the laundry room doesn't seem that insane -- it's probably for where the litter box is. But then the client says she wants a slide from the garage, a bunch of wet bars and dozens of TVs. Um, what?
But this client does ultimately cause Lewis to decide he wants to sell his Gramercy home and get back into flipping houses.
Also in the episode, the team is debuting a new line of paint at a huge trade show in Los Angeles called Dwell on Design.

As Jeff Lewis has brought on more household help over the past few seasons of "Flipping Out," fans have watched as original cleaning lady (and undeniable series Mvp) Zoila Chavez has butted heads with each and every one of them.
In this preview of Wednesday's (March 19) episode, exclusive to Zap2it, Jeff decides it's time to address the problem head-on and sits down Zoila, her main adversary Lupe and poor Maria, who just wants to work and stay out of the drama, for a meeting. Naturally, it doesn't go so well.
Does everything get resolved between Jeff's "dream team"? You'll have to tune in to find out.

As the new season of "Flipping Out" moves into its second week on Wednesday (March 12), it's clear that a major focus will be design assistant Andrew Coleman and his continued unprofessional behavior.
As revealed in last week's Season 7 premiere, Jeff Lewis' trustworthy assistant Jenni Pulos, she of the gigantic pregnant belly, is about ready to pop, which means maternity leave is knocking on the door. While Jeff admitted he was worried about what he'd do without her, Andrew reminded everyone just how delusional he is, suggesting he may get more responsibilities at Jeff Lewis Design in her stead.
Except, as even a casual viewer of the Bravo series knows, there's nothing in Andrew's history as an employee of Jeff's that would remotely suggest that he deserves more responsibility. And this is something Jeff is clearly keenly aware of.
Enter: Megan. At the start of tonight's episode, we learn that »
Producers, casting directors and executives share the secrets of how they find the right personalities for reality TV shows
It's a rarely discussed fact of reality television: before every Kardashian, Honey Boo Boo or Robertson, there was a casting director who thought they might be the perfect wacky character for TV. At the recent RealScreen Summit reality TV conference in Washington, a panel of casting experts, producers and network executives discussed what goes on behind the scenes of the casting world, a topic that doesn't usually get much attention. Turns out, it's not an easy gig.
Sheila Conlin, who owns casting and production office The Conlin Company, talked about one difficult couple she found for Fox's Kitchen Nightmares. "They were stubborn and a lot to handle, which for me, is a dream," she gushed. Translation: when someone's that difficult off screen, it's likely they'll be crazy on screen. That means buzz, »

Jeff Lewis isn't one to hold his tongue, especially when it comes to talking about fellow Bravolebrities from the “Real Housewives” franchise. The “Flipping Out” star appeared on Thursday's episode of “The Wendy Williams Show” and swiftly weighed in on the casting of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes on the upcoming season of ABC's “Dancing With the Stars.” Also read: ‘Flipping Out’ Producers Answer 5 Burning Questions About the Bravo Show (Video) “I'm actually very happy that she has this gig, because I feel like this last season we're watching right now, I feel like she has kind of regressed, »

NBC’s Constantine pilot has completed casting. Harold Perrinau will play an angel who watches over John Constantine and True Blood alum Lucy Griffiths (she played Eric‘s sister) is an “offbeat young lady” who joins forces with Constantine.
Aubrey Peeple, who plays Layla on Nashville talked with TV Guide about her character’s relationship with closeted singer Will, ” I think that him being good for her career was a huge factor in why they got together. But at this point … she’s totally head over heels for him, because she’s 19. There will always be that aspect of her career that drives her, and that’s what comes first. But she’s a hormonal teenager. She’s in love with him now.” Peeple also hints that Will and Layla’s storyline should get some major developments soon.
I just want Trent back on the show.

When a reality show like "Flipping Out" has been on the air for the better half of a decade, you pretty much know what you're going to get with every new season. That's not a bad thing if the show knows how to entertain. Luckily, "Flipping Out" does.
With the premiere of Season 7 on Wednesday (March 5), things at Jeff Lewis Design are same as they ever were -- with just a few minor changes. For starters, business is booming for Jeff, with a handful of new, high-profile clients seeking our favorite Ocd designer's services. Jeff's had some big clients in the past, but "CSI" star George Eads and Zack Morris himself, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, are some pretty big gets, if you ask us.
The other major change? Newlywed assistant Jenni, whose wedding was a central focus in Season 6, is pregnant. Like, super, ready-to-pop pregnant. Her impending motherhood looks to be a »
Jeff Lewis and his off-the-wall team of house flippers/designers return to Bravo for a seventh season on Wednesday. The team has survived economic slowdowns, divorce, broken friendships, employee turnover and avoided being sued by several unsuspecting interns and arrived at a new place on Season 7. “The thing about this season is that it's a little bit lighter and funnier,” executive producer, Authentic Entertainment's Lauren Lexton, told TheWrap. “I don't think that there are as many bigger, heavier issues looming on the horizon.” See video: Bravo Sets March Return for ‘Flipping Out,’ Releases Crazy First Look Trailer (Exclusive) “When we start this season, »

Coleman joined Jeff Lewis’s company during last year’s sixth season and while he wasn’t initially a good fit for the chaos of the busy design firm, he eventually settled into his roleand is now a vital part of the team.
However, that doesn’t mean that he’s still not making a few missteps (like telling a client that he’s out looking for little people for a promotional function), or that he’s not the target for some office pranks (like a fake snake buried behind a couch pillow for him to find). But Coleman brings fun to the workplace and, of course, to the show.
Since the seventh season kicks off tonight, we checked in with Andrew about »

There seems to be plenty of strong reactions to last night‘s How I Met Your Mother, fueling a certain fan theory about how the series ends. I’m still rooting for the show ending in divorce, that’s the only way I can justify the way they’ve made Ted such a jerk this season.
Virginia Madsen has joined the cast of NBC’s revised Babylon Fields pilot. Madsen’s career choices have been oddly hit-and-miss (anyone remember Scoundrels?) I’m hoping this is one of her better shows.
TBS has ordered a pilot of Clippers, a comedy from Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. The series follows a group who participated in different social circles in high school but now work together in a barber shop.

Jeff Lewis and his company of nutty employees will be back for a seventh season when “Flipping Out” returns on Wednesday, March 5 at 10/9c on Bravo.
