'Doll & Em' finale: A Season 2 is not in the works
2 April 2014 9:30 PM, PDT
HBO's new mockumentary "Doll & Em" came to a close Wednesday (April 2) after airing its six episodes over three weeks. Star Emily Mortimer tells Zap2it that fans should not hold their breath for a follow-up season just yet.
"These six episodes were self-contained, they finished up the story we were telling," says Mortimer. "If we did get commissioned to do a second season, it would be something different."
The show ended with Mortimer and her real-life childhood friend having swapped situations on the show, as the "master becomes the servant and the servant becomes the master," Mortimer tells us. By the end of the series, Doll was the diva and Em ended up ... spitting on her. Yikes.
What did you think of the conclusion to "Doll & Em"? Would you tune in for more if a second season was commissioned? »
'The Americans' Season 2, episode 6: Sex, drugs and covert murder in 'Behind the Red Door'
2 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT
Of all "The Americans" episodes in this excellent Season 2, "Behind the Red Door" might best encapsulate the passion, fear and danger of espionage. It's hard to remember sometimes that these are people who have literally given up everything for a cause -- and that makes them some of the most fascinating and dangerous people on the planet.
Even in this fictional version, it's fascinating to watch them try to change the world.
Philip and Elizabeth are finally ready to target Marshall Larick, the military guy who they suspect may have killed Emmett and Leanne. Unfortunately for them, Larick is both highly intelligent and rather angry about this whole being-blackmailed-by-the-communists-because-he's-gay thing.
While Larick is quite convincing about not being the killer, he also lets slip that he's involved with the training of Nicaraguan Contra leaders on Us soil. It's safe to say that the Soviet Union wants »
'Nashville' Season 2, episode 19 recap: Scarlett's toxic mom drives her 'Crazy'
2 April 2014 8:45 PM, PDT
Thank goodness there's a four-week break before we get a new episode of "Nashville," because Wednesday's (April 2) episode was a doozy. There were so many revelations, confrontations and emotions running high that it's going to take four weeks to recover from the roller coaster that was "Crazy." Let's dig right in to the drama, y'all!
Even though Maddie took down the video she titled "Maddie Claybourne," everyone knows the Internet is forever. Someone got hold of the video and it went viral. Even the ladies on "The View" made a cameo to discuss the murky waters of Maddie's paternity, calling her Rayna and Deacon's "love child." When the paparazzi get vicious, Rayna gets worried when she can't reach Deacon. She freaks out, thinking he might have started drinking again.
Knowing that Deacon would head to the lake house they were supposed to live in way back when, Rayna and Luke »
'American Idol' Xiii Top 8: The duets are shaky; Sam Woolf's time has come
2 April 2014 7:30 PM, PDT
The theme for "American Idol" this week is going back to the start, which means performing the song they used for their initial audition for the judges. They will also be paired up for duets, which should be interesting.
1. Jessica Meuse, "Blue Eyed Lie," original song
This might be the most emotion we've seen from Jessica since her audition, you can tell she wrote this. She sounds great, really rocking the Stevie Nicks moments on some notes, but also showing off a great growly rocker voice. The only big criticism is that when the camera pulls back, she's standing there knock-kneed. When she doesn't have pants on, she needs a better stance behind the mic. Heh.
This was ... Ok. Definitely let him show off some personality, even if he wasn't exactly on key in spots. However, I was kind of bored. It sounded »
'The 100' episode 3 recap: An unlikely murderer changes everything on the ground
2 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT
As dark as "The 100" has been so far -- with the mass executions, sending children down to a dangerous, unknown environment and the cruelty the teens have shown on the ground -- nothing prepared viewers for the extremely dark episode 3, "Earth Kills."
Seriously, who would have thought the sweet, little girl seeking comfort for her nightmares would turn around and straight up murder one of the main characters who had done literally nothing wrong to anyone for the entire show? His one transgression was even revealed not to be true, making him a truly good guy. Rip Wells, your death will not go unnoticed.
Nope, Wells' violent, shocking, brutal death is about to change everything on the ground. Since no one knows who killed him, tensions will run high among the 100, with blame falling on more than a few innocent parties. But there is also the added consequence of everyone »
'Arrow' Season 2, episode 18: 'Deathstroke' reveals all the secrets
2 April 2014 6:30 PM, PDT
"Arrow" doesn't like to keep secrets -- not really, anyway. How else do you explain the fact that there are four monster revelations in the single episode, "Deathstroke"?
Seriously, the way they keep revealing stuff, Oliver might want to invest in a billboard to make sure everyone knows. But what are the big four secrets of the week?
#1: Who's your daddy, Thea?
At the end of the previous episode, Thea Queen made the foolish mistake of getting in Slade Wilson's big, fancy car. That's because he didn't want to talk about her boyfriend issues and smudged makeup. He wanted to kidnap her. Which he does.
That's just about all he does for awhile though, that and sending a "Save me!" video to Moira's debate. Thus, while everyone in Starling City is running around, shooting people with Himalayan pit viper venom and arresting Slade on suspicion of kidnapping, Thea is »
'Survivor: Cagayan': A Tribal Council for the ages because 'Chaos Kass' is crazy
2 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT
When we last left our "Survivor: Cagayan" castaways, two people went home -- and if you haven't read our interview with Lindsey, you really should because there's ... a lot of stuff happening there. Anyway, time for the merge!
The six Aparri members start talking about the merge and who they're going to target first if the merge comes the next day. Trish or Jefra seem to be the names tossed out there, which surprises me. You'd think they would target whichever strong male doesn't win Immunity, like Tony or Lj. Hmm.
They agree "Top 6," but of course, that depends heavily on if someone can be poached. Kass is concerned about Sarah and Jeremiah and voices that to Sarah's face, which Sarah takes offense at. Um, don't be offended. Kass was just being honest and since you are the only Brawny who is in their tribe, then maybe you're thinking »

'The Boondocks' creator Aaron McGruder explains his departure from the series
2 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT
When it was announced that Adult Swim hit "The Boondocks" would be returning for a fourth and final season, the part of the press release that stuck out was how series creator Aaron McGruber wouldn't be back. At the time, Sony Pictures Television explained the new season "was produced without the involvement of Aaron McGruder, when a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined."
While McGruber was initially silent on the issue, he took to the Facebook page of his next Adult Swim show, "Black Jesus" to address his departure. In an open letter on the page, he writes about the responsibility he had to make sure the show offended viewers, but that it was for "the right reasons." Doing so was not an easy task, nor was it quick.
He doesn't say what, exactly, led to his departure, but writes, "To quote a great white man, 'Hollywood is a business'. »
'Sharknado 2' gets Matt Lauer and Al Roker cameos: Has it jumped the Sharknado?
2 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT
Has "Sharknado" finally gone too far? Probably not, but they sure are getting close to the line. It was revealed on "Today" Wednesday (April ) that Matt Lauer and Al Roker would have cameo appearances in "Sharknado 2: The Second One."
The two even showed a piece of their scene on the morning show, in which they are reporting on the Sharknado itself as it ravages New York. In the end, a shark ends up on their news desk and Lauer attacks it with an umbrella while they continue reporting.
Given just how ridiculous the footage looks, Syfy has the makings of another cult classic in their hands. Other cameos include Andy Dick, professional wrestler Kurt Angle, Kelly Osbourne and Mark McGrath. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles from the first "Sharknado."
"Sharknado 2: The Second One" premieres Wednesday (July 30) on Syfy.

'Nashville': Lennon and Maisy Stella recognize that fame is a 'wild, wild thing'
2 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT
Many child actors are so busy twinkling for the camera that only viewers who consider all kids inherently adorable can stomach watching them.
Then there are the Stella sisters: natural on camera and easy in each other's presence. If you haven't been watching ABC's "Nashville" Wednesdays, you're missing a terrifically written and acted drama with multidimensional characters and great music.
And you're missing the quiet showstopping performances the girls regularly turn in. There's a purity to their voices, which blend seamlessly. The sisters, Lennon (named after John), 14, and Maisy, 10, have always sung together.
Recently, Lennon's character, Maddie, has had more drama. She posted a a video identifying herself as Maddie Claybourne, putting it out there that Deacon (Charles Esten) is her dad.
Her action leaves her mom, Rayna (Connie Britton), and others upset. With their roles expanding, the Stella sisters talk to Zap2it with their mom, Marylynne, close by. »
'My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding' Season 3 premiere: First look clip
2 April 2014 1:15 PM, PDT
The hunt is on for Heather Small to create her perfect wedding in "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding." In the above Season 3 Zap2it-exclusive premiere clip, 18-year-old Heather calls Sandra Celli to design her a dream dress.
"This is really a Romeo and Juliet story," Celli says. "This dress has to be impressive enough to heal the feud. That's a big ask for a dress."
But Heather has more problems on her hands than just planning her wedding -- she also has to convince her mother that it's the right move for her.
"I love my girls. My girls are my life," Connie Small explains of why she doesn't want Heather to get married. "I want them to do the things that I never got to do."
The "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" premiere airs Thursday, April 3 on TLC at 9 p.m. Et/Pt. »
'Arrow' Season 2, episode 18 video: Dark times ahead in 'Deathstroke'
2 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT
"Arrow" Season 2 may not be going into its final episodes on a happy note. As "Deathstroke" approaches, Thea has been kidnapped and Slade Wilson seems unstoppable. As the producer's preview video for Wednesday's (April 2) episode shows, fans should be worried about everyone even making it out alive.
How bad could it be? Let's make a guess, based on the narration of the video.
First of all, it seems likely that someone important could die. How else do you explain the Queen family not being the same and Team Arrow suffering a devastating loss? It's possible that someone could just leave. But probably not.
Also, what is Laurel going to do that will change her forever? There have been hints that Helena's message to the lawyer about letting the darkness in could reverberate in "Deathstroke." Could Laurel go full-on dark-side with this? That would actually be kind of fun.
Finally, Isabel Rochev is back. »

2 April 2014 12:35 PM, PDT
The reality star discovered her pregnancy, with her child this time from Nathan Griffith. While this came as a surprise to no one, it was certainly a happy moment for the young couple. They hope this baby will bring them closer together. But first, they have to tell Jenelle's mom Barbara.
Jenelle's tough mom brought up some good concerns she has about her daughter having another kid if they don't work out as a couple, since Barbara knows she'll end up taking care of the new baby. But Jenelle promises that no matter what happens with her and Nathan, she'll take full responsibility for the baby. Time will tell if that's true, since Jenelle and Nathan end the episode in yet another argument.

'Million Dollar Listing New York': Fredrik Eklund is riding the real estate boom
2 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT
These are heady days to be in Manhattan real estate, what with supply lagging behind a demand driven to an all-time high by foreign buyers, and interest rates staying at near-historic lows.
Fredrik Eklund, agent for Douglas Elliman Real Estate and one of the stars of Bravo's "Million Dollar Listing New York," which returns for its third season Wednesday, April 2, just enjoyed his best month ever since he began selling properties in New York's richest borough.
"In February, the shortest month of the year," he tells Zap2it, "I sold $152 million in one month, which is about triple the highest amount I sold in a month in 2013, which made No. 1 in the nation."
"I've been doing this for 12 years," he continues. "I've never seen anything like it. ... It's booming now more than it ever has before, more than 2006 and 2007, before the downturn. The pricing is crazy; it's very strong. You »
'Sam & Cat' not renewed: Are Jennette McCurdy's racy pics to blame?
2 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT
It's a tumultuous time for Nickelodeon, which is faces with one of it's most popular shows possibly going away. The network has yet to renew "Sam & Cat" for a second season, following a 40 episode Season . That revelation comes shortly after scandalous photos of one of the stars, Jennette McCurdy, appeared online.
The relationship between McCurdy and Nickelodeon seems strained at best, with the actress sitting out Sunday's "Kids Choice Awards," where "Sam & Cat" won the award for Favorite Show. When asked by fans why she skipped the awards show, McCurdy tweeted, "I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me."
She later clarified, "It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me" and had nothing to do with the photos.
A source tells TMZ that money is at the heart of the matter. McCurdy »
'How I Met Your Mother' alternate ending: Fan-made video keeps Ted and Tracy together forever
2 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT
Outrage over the way "How I Met Your Mother" ended is starting to dissipate. This video may help.
An enterprising fan has excised the last couple of minutes from Monday's (March 31) series finale, and in so doing has allowed Ted (Josh Radnor) and Tracy (Cristin Milioti) to remain together forever, instead of what actually happened.
The real ending does have its defenders, including Radnor himself. "I thought the title of the show was always a bit of a fake-out," he tells Vulture. "It was more of a hook to hang the thing on. Really it was more about, these are the crazy adventures and these are the lessons I had to learn before I met your mother."
YouTube user "Ricardo J Dylan" begs to differ. "I believe that this is more like the ending that we deserve," he writes in the "about" section of the video. His version cuts out »
'Agents of Shield' episode 17 'Turn, Turn, Turn' promo: A battle for Shield's soul
2 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT
Who is an ally and who is an enemy on "Marvel's Agents of Shield"? That will be the big question in Season 1's 17th episode, "Turn, Turn, Turn."
Considering it comes out in two days, by now we can tease that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is going to have some game-changing effects on the world of "Marvel's Agents of Shield" (yes, we've seen it, and yes, it's awesome). Once the events of the movie become known, the stakes in this episode will be even higher than anyone previously thought.
Right now the show is implying that agents Melinda May and Victoria Hand are working against Shield, but is Agent John Garrett an enemy as well? The end of this promo sort of implies it, and photos from episode 18, "Providence," show Garrett with Raina and Ian Quinn. Next thing you know, we'll find out FitzSimmons are secretly Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. »
