3 hours ago
"Supernatural" fans, here's some major news about the upcoming spinoff pilot "Supernatural: Tribes" -- it's getting a name change!

'Heartland Table': Amy Thielen is canny about fresh food
4 hours ago
And she certainly walks the talk, buying poultry and beef from neighbors near her rural Minnesota home and growing vegetables in her large garden to use in recipes she prepares on the show and for her husband and 6-year-old son.
But in northern Minnesota, growing season is short, so in cold-weather months she must resort to more conventional sources such as supermarkets. She also freezes, vacuum-packs and cans.
In fact, she's a trained canner.
"I've never told the Food Network that," Thielen tells Zap2it, laughing. "I've taken classes at the University of Minnesota because at one point early on, I wanted to manufacture jams and pickles. That was a very short-lived obsession that kind of fizzled out, »

'The Mindy Project' Season 3 scoop from Ike Barinholtz and Mindy Kaling
5 hours ago
Technically the writers of "The Mindy Project" will have a month off after they finish production on the Fox comedy's second season before they congregate to start breaking Season 3, but Ike Barinholtz tells Zap2it on a recent visit to the set -- where they were shooting the Season 2 finale -- that he's constantly thinking about ideas for new episodes.
"My [writing] partner and I were just talking about an idea for a story a little bit ago," he says "It's so funny, you get a few weeks' break and you're like 'Ok, well I'm going to go shut it down and think about other stuff,' but you do think about the show. It's such a big part of our lives, so you'll be in an argument with your wife one day and you'll be like 'Oh, this'll be a great episode.'"
The writers are "just starting to" think »

Zap2it: What are you working on?

Zap2it: Will you be singing the same ballads Fantasia did, or will they change the score?
Zap2it: Are you going to do "The Trip to Bountiful" when it opens in Los Angeles?
Vanessa Williams: I start rehearsals in August, and it opens in mid-September and runs through the second week of November. It was one of those things as soon as I heard that Cicely [Tyson] had agreed to do it in L.A., I was definitely there for her. Not only that, I did not want to give up my role, »

'The Vampire Diaries' says goodbye to Katherine: Watch her best moments
18 hours ago
"The Vampire Diaries" said goodbye to one of the series' best characters on Thursday (March 6): Katherine Pierce.
She may have served her purpose as a villain for most of the time she was onscreen on The CW's supernatural series, but it can't be denied that Katherine got things done. There's a reason she survived over 500 years even though she was being hunted by an Original vampire the entire time: She was smart, she was logical, and she was efficient.
Unfortunately, that meant Katherine had to step on more than a few people to stay ahead of the game, and that caught up with her on her deathbed. Instead of going quietly into that good night (a.k.a. passing through Bonnie), she was violently sucked out of this world and thrust into a darker existence that we're calling The Dark Side (as opposed to the lighter Other Side that »

'The Flash': 'Arrow' spinoff casts Patrick Sabongui as Captain David Singh
20 hours ago
Although the role has a guest-starring status in the pilot episode, Sabongui's character could become recurring if the show is picked up to series by The CW (according to The Hollywood Reporter).
As a police captain, David Singh would be the boss of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), the young man who becomes the titular Flash. Others cast in the pilot include Jesse L. Martin (Detective West), Candice Patton (Iris West), Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon), Rick Cosnett (Detective Eddie Thawne) and John Wesley Shipp.
A stuntman as well as an actor, Sabongui has guest-starred in "Flash" executive producer Greg Berlanti's "Arrow" and "The Tomorrow People." He has also recently appeared on "Almost Human," "Nikita," "Psych" and more.
'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 16: A woman's vengeance and a school trip add 'Insult to Injury'
21 hours ago
Dangerous byproducts of car-accident deaths, plus the police commissioner's visit to a museum, meant another active day for the Reagans.
"Insult to Injury," Friday's (March 7) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods" -- written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly, from a story by him and series script coordinator Andrew Raab -- made Frank (Tom Selleck) a chaperone for grandson Sean's (Andrew Terraciano) school field trip. The trek's main guide, Joyce Carpenter (guest star Annie Wersching), quickly proved herself something of a control freak.
"This isn't my first rodeo," she briskly informed Frank. "You're just to follow my lead." Clearly, she did not know Frank Reagan.
What looked to be a day of paperwork for Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) became something else when he took a call meant for a detective who had passed away. The distressed caller, named Jill (guest star Bess Rous), angrily told Danny that the NYPD and the justice system had failed her. »
'Grimm' Season 3: Reggie Lee discusses 'Mommy Dearest' shocker and Wu's first name reveal
22 hours ago
Warning: If you haven't watched Friday's (March 7) episode of "Grimm," you're about to be spoiled.
At long last, "Grimm" fans have gotten what they wanted for the character of Sergeant Wu. Not only did he discover the Wesen world, but viewers also learned his first name.
Except the whole Wesen storyline didn't exactly play out the way many people were likely expecting. Wu couldn't handle the fact that the Aswang was more than just a fairy-tale creature, and he ended up in a mental institution over it. Will he be able to come to terms with this supernatural world? That remains to be seen.
Zap2it spoke with Wu himself, Reggie Lee, about the seminal episode, what this means for his character and how they decided on the name of "Drew Wu."
Zap2it: What was your response to Wu having a mental breakdown over seeing a Wesen?
BBC America's 'Orphan Black' Season 2 clips hid a binary message from Walt Whitman
23 hours ago
Current favorite thing about the internet: The hardcore "Orphan Black" fans who decoded a secret binary message in the eight promo clips BBC America released via its Instagram in anticipation of the clone thriller's Season 2 premiere on April 19.
The eight teasers showed our very first glimpses at the show's upcoming second season, including Felix and Alison having a heart-to-heart, one of the clones attacking Rachel, sick Cosima, a new dude who makes out with Sarah and more, and before the "Orphan Black" logo flashed at the end of each one, a binary message came on screen.
After realizing each binary code that flashed was different, the Internet detectives at After Ellen decoded the message. It turned out to be quotes from from Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself."
Revisit the clips and each quote below. What does it all Mean?!
1. "I am large, I contain multitudes."

'Enlisted' star Angelique Cabral books lead NBC comedy pilot 'Two to Go'
7 March 2014 5:04 PM, PST
Here is your weekly reminder to watch "Enlisted," Fox's funniest sitcom of the season: Star Angelique Cabral, who plays Geoff Stults' nemesis/frenemy/flirt buddy on the comedy, has booked a lead role in a new NBC comedy pilot.
According to Deadline, Cabral will star in "Two To Go," a comedy about longtime best friends Kurt and Laura (Christine Woods), who struggle with "the challenges of modern-day dating" while their group of friends insist they should be together. Cabral will play Anne, the Pilates instructor wife to Echo Kellum's stay-at-home dad Nick.
Before you fret: Yes, it is in second position to "Enlisted" so if the show is picked up and "Enlisted" is renewed, she'll stay on the military comedy. And yes, this is a very common move for actors during their busiest staffing time of the year. But it's still kind of a bummer to remember that »

7 March 2014 4:30 PM, PST
In a a behind-the-scenes video from The Wrap, which appears on the "Day of the Doctor" DVD release, Smith commandeers a camera to ask Coleman what she'll miss most about him. "The daily abuse," she answers.
Based on the hugs and jokes they share in the video, it's easy to see just how special their connection aboard the Tardis was. »
'New Girl,' 'The Following,' 'Mindy Project' and 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' all renewed for 2014-15 on Fox
7 March 2014 4:27 PM, PST
Fox has picked up three of its Tuesday-night comedies -- "New Girl," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "The Mindy Project" -- for next season, along with drama "The Following."
Three of the four pickups seemed fairly likely: Ratings for "The Following" have been down some this season but it remains a solid performer, and "New Girl" and "Brooklyn" are the network's two top live-action comedies. The "Mindy" renewal is a mild surprise as its ratings are somewhat lower, and it's been on hiatus since January, with a return set for April 1.
The four shows join the already renewed "Bones," "Glee" and "Sleepy Hollow" on Fox's schedule for next season. The network also has made series commitments to several new shows, including dramas "Gotham" and "Backstrom" and comedies "Mulaney" and "Cabot College," for 2014-15.
Where they all end up on the schedule is very much an open question, as Fox is committing to »
'The Mentalist' Season 6, episode 13: Jane goes underground in 'Black Helicopters'
7 March 2014 4:15 PM, PST
After nearly two months off the air, "The Mentalist" returns to CBS Sunday (March 9). The show's first episode back finds Jane literally going underground to work a case.
Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, titled "Black Helicopters." The episode centers on the death of a U.S. attorney in Mexico, which leads Jane to a separatist compound near the border. In the clip, Jane (Simon Baker) calls Fischer (Emily Swallow) and Cho (Tim Kang) and asks them to trace his phone, but when they arrive, there's no sign of him -- just an angry guy with a shotgun.
The situation goes from tense to just when Jane, through Fischer's phone, asks everyone not to shoot and then pops out of a hole in the ground. Take a look:
"The Mentalist" airs at 10 p.m. Et/Pt Sunday on CBS. »
'True Blood' Season 7: Ryan Kwanten says fan-favorite characters will die
7 March 2014 3:30 PM, PST
When "True Blood" enters its seventh and final season this summer, not all of its characters will come out alive -- or still undead. Zap2it spoke with Ryan Kwanten while he was promoting his new movie "The Right Kind of Wrong," and he says some big surprises are in store in Season 7.
"There will have to be something, I dare say," Kwanten says. "Some more favorite [characters] are going to appear, and some more favorites are actually going to be on the chopping block."
Though Season 6 ended on a bit of a series reboot, Kwanten says Season 7 will harken back to earlier seasons. Because the show is coming to an end, he says the actors are »
