'The Voice's' Christina Aguilera on beating Blake Shelton to the finals: 'I kind of felt bad'
5 hours ago
It was bound to happen, and on Tuesday (Dec. 10), it finally did: Blake Shelton's three-season winning streak on "The Voice" came to its end when the coach's final artist, Cole Vosbury, was eliminated a week before the finale.
Though she's still in the game with young vocalist Jacquie Lee, returning coach Christina Aguilera didn't find much joy in being a part of Shelton's demise. Speaking with reporters backstage after the results episode, she admits, "I really wasn't invested in that whole derail," adding, "Adam [Levine,] I know, is going to pop champagne over that tonight, but you know, I kind of felt bad. You know, I don't feel good when anybody goes home. It's not about that."
Instead, she's focusing on coaching the young Lee all the way to victory, explaining that there's no room for holding back next week. "At this point, yeah, you've got to go big or go home, »
'Sons of Anarchy' Season 6 finale - 'A Mother's Work': [Spoiler] dies and it isn't pretty
5 hours ago
Where do you even begin after the bloody opus that was the "Sons of Anarchy" Season 6 finale, "A Mother's Work"? While there were no end of theories about what would happen as the season came to a close, Tara's (Maggie Siff) death has left a hole in the hearts of viewers everywhere.
It was a horrible end she met, at the hands of her own mother-in-law, just when things were starting to look up for her. Jax (Charlie Hunnam) had agreed to turn himself into the authorities, taking the fall for the school shooting gun. It would keep the club clear of the charge, give Tara immunity for her crimes and keep his kids safe from the life of the club, in the arms of their mother.
The two came to an agreement after the club located the runaway Tara in a park with her sons. Tara surely thought it »
'Law & Order: Svu's' Capt. Cragen retires: 12 other great cop-show bosses (plus Jim Dangle)
5 hours ago
After 15 seasons as the boss on "Law & Order: Svu" -- and three seasons before that on the original "L&O" -- Capt. Donald Cragen is retiring.
Dann Florek filmed his final scenes as Cragen on Friday (Dec. 6), capping a run of more than 400 episodes across the "Law & Order" universe. (The character is coming up against the NYPD's mandatory retirement age, the same thing that led to the exit of Richard Belzer's Detective John Munch earlier in the season.)
The gruff, disapproving commander is a stock character in crime shows, but Cragen transcended those tropes over the years and joins a pantheon of truly great cop show boss characters. With due respect to predecessors like Barney Miller and Frank Furillo of "Hill Street Blues," here are our favorites since Cragen first appeared on "Law & Order" in 1990.

'Victoria's Secret Fashion Show': Miley Cyrus strikes again and she wasn't even there
6 hours ago
They're the girls every guy wants and every girl wants to be ... the Victoria's Secret Angels. And on Tuesday (Dec. 10), we got to watch them parade their nearly-naked bodies down the runway while Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, A Great Big World, and Neon Jungle performed during the "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show."
It's kind of funny how a lingerie company puts on a huge fashion show annually, seeing as how lingerie requires the least amount of fabric and creativity to create, but Victoria's Secret has rebranded what a fashion show can be by adding outlandish and visually stimulating costume ideas to the bras and panties. There were long, billowing skirts and huge, feathered wings added to the bras and underwear.
But here's the thing: They're still bras and underwear. There was more skin showing in this one-hour telecast than most networks would allow in an entire season. Just check out »
'American Horror Story: Coven' 'The Head': A 'Good Wife' face stops by
7 hours ago
Things come to (ahem) a head Wednesday, Dec. 11 on "American Horror Story: Coven," with the academy witches trying to fight back against the witch-hunter who tried to take them out. Here are a few spoilery tidbits for "The Head."
Did you think Joan Ramsey couldn't get any crazier? She totally can. Let's just say her former husband and Ella on "Pretty Little Liars" have something in common. The main storyline revolves around Hank this week, since he's the witch-hunter who shot up Ramsey's house last episode. It turns out he comes by his witch-hunting ways naturally. Misty Day may seem like a simple ne'er-do-well swamp witch, but it's not just Fiona who has taken notice of her extraordinary gifts. Myrtle goes eye-for-eye with the Council, after they burned her at the stake based on Fiona's testimony. It's unexpected and awesome.
Get excited, "Good Wife" fans. Everyone's favorite Chicago drug dealer »
'Dance Moms' holiday special: Cathy Nesbitt-Stein stops by to fight
7 hours ago
It's time for the "Dance Moms" holiday special, which should prove to be full of yuletide cheer and nothing but "God bless us, every one," right?
Uh huh. In the holiday spirit, Abby Lee Miller says that Christmas means to her that it's "two weeks off from the dance studio. No moms, no kids, no complaining."
Miller then says her "Dance Moms" are so rude that none of them are on her "nice" list. They're all on the naughty list -- Christi, whose mouth is out of control; Melissa, who is naughty all the time, inappropriately in front of the kids; Kelly showing up drunk at the dance studio, etc. etc.
The gifts are given out by shirtless Santa's elves. Kelly gets a beer helmet and eight bottles of tequila, Jill gets lip plumper, Holly gets shoes (for her big feet), Christi gets a cash box and makes »
'The Sing-Off' Season 4: Meet Street Corner Renaissance
8 hours ago
It's been two years since the last season of NBC's "The Sing-Off" aired, but since then -- thanks to the success of the movie "Pitch Perfect" and to Internet phenomenon Pentatonix, who won Season 3 -- a cappella singing is en vogue again. Zap2it spoke with each of the groups competing in Season 4 to get an idea of what the competition will hold. Up next: Street Corner Renaissance, the elder statesmen of the competition.
The fourth season premiere of NBC's "The Sing-Off" was full of interesting song choices, but none was smarter than Street Corner Renaissance's lovely, old-school doo-wop version of One Direction's hit "What Makes You Beautiful."
A group of elder gentlemen singing a song by the most popular band among the entire teenage population of the world was a good choice, especially since it turned out so lovely. The Los Angeles-based group, which has been together for around a decade, »
'The Voice' results: The Top 3 revealed - Who made it to the finals?
8 hours ago
And then there were three.
Tuesday (Dec. 10) was a big night for "The Voice," as the hit NBC competition readies to head into its final week. Not only did a plethora of former contestants return to perform their new, original work (more on that later), but the show shed two artists from the Top 5, revealing the final three singer left in the game. So who went home? And did either Christina Aguilera or Blake Shelton join CeeLo Green in the loser's circle? Or did Adam Levine finally say goodbye to an artist? Let's find out!
Switching things up a bit, host Carson Daly called the Top 5 on stage to reveal not the first artist safe, but the first artist going home. And that unlucky soul was Team Adam's James Wolpert. After a teary hug with the other artists and a standing ovation from his coach, which became another emotional hug, »

LeAnn Rimes was part of one of the big performances for the 2013 American Country Awards. She was called upon to sing a medley of Patsy Cline songs, as a tribute to the singer who died in 1963 at the age of 30.

'Community' Season 5 spoilers: 5 things to know about 'Repilot' and 'Introduction to Teaching'
8 hours ago
"Community" Season 5 is everything you want it to be. Darkly funny, edgy and embarrassing-laughter inducing, the first episodes of the new season -- "Repilot" and "Introduction to Teaching" -- are pretty much brilliant.
Why are they so good? Here are five "Community" spoilers to give you a hint.
1. Jeff Winger's (Joel McHale) legal career isn't exactly skyrocketing, even if his commercials do feature the lawyer punching out a giant robot in order to save the city.
2. Did Greendale suck away the dreams and humanity of its students? That might explain why -- when Season 5 begins -- Annie (Alison Brie) has a job passing out pens for a pharmaceuticals company.
3. Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks) likes to draw ducks.
4. It is possible to graduate from Greendale Community College, even if your senior thesis is created from Lego bricks.
5. At no point in the previous four years of "Community" has the audience seen »
'Agents of Shield' Episode 10 'The Bridge' recap: What happened the day after Coulson died?
9 hours ago
"Marvel's Agents of Shield" brought all of the loose strings of Season 1 together for one big cliffhanger in the show's 10th episode, "The Bridge." To tease fans over the brief midseason break, the ABC Marvel series brought Centipede to the forefront and had Coulson's team lose their leader.
While "Agents of Shield" still hasn't reached it's full potential, "The Bridge" proved definitely getting there. The Centipede revelations shown in "The Bridge" were there all along in the previous nine episodes for those willing to look for them. For an organization so intent on creating the ultimate human, it was a nice twist to have them take Coulson to discover what happened "the day after [he] died."
That means Coulson's death is going to be finally, finally dealt with after "Agents of Shield" returns on Jan. 7. There are plenty of theories for why Centipede is so interested in Coulson, but it seems »
'The Walking Dead' Season 4b: [Spoiler] is confirmed to return
10 hours ago
Warning: Spoilers for the second half of "The Walking Dead" Season 4 are below.
TV Guide reports that Kirkman says Carol "will definitely return before the end of the season." But that's not all viewers have to look forward to. The "Sanctuary" mentioned in the radio signal Daryl, Michonne, Bob Stookey and Tyreese heard in the car will "come into play," and there will be some flashbacks to look forward to as well.
The confirmation of those flashbacks seems to explain what executive producer Gale Anne Hurd teased about viewers seeing Hershel again. Though he died in the midseason finale, his daughters Beth and Maggie could remember earlier times with their father. TV Guide speculates that the »
'Orphan Black' recruits 'Suits' star Patrick J. Adams for Clone Club
10 hours ago
According to Deadline, Adams will play Jesse, a "brave but regular guy" who "lands in a ton of trouble when the clone characters played by Tatiana Maslany enter his life" on an upcoming episode of the show.
"Orphan Black" Season 2 premieres on April 19, 2014. "Suits" Season 3 premieres on USA on March 6, 2014. Both shows are shot in Toronto, so the scheduling for Adams' appearance shouldn't be too disruptive to his "Suits" schedule.
Adams tweeted about his love for the show earlier in 2013, writing, "Orphan Black. Episode 2. And I'm hooked. #pleasecanigueststar." Looks like he got his wish! »

Matt Smith talks leaving 'Doctor Who', filming the Christmas special
11 hours ago
The role of the Doctor on "Doctor Who" is one that changed Matt Smith's life. After spending three seasons in the role, Smith has practically become synonymous with the Doctor. His run has coincided with the show's popularity skyrocketing around the globe, the pinnacle being a worldwide simulcast of the 50th anniversary special in 94 countries.
Still, the man who plays the 11th Doctor is ready to leave it behind to take the next step in his life. Before he leaves the life of a Time Lord behind for good though, Smith spoke to the Radio Times about the impact the role has had on him.
"Everything changed," he says of playing the Doctor. "It's all-consuming -- and that affects the rhythm of your life. Now, however, it's settling down a little." Since announcing he would be leaving the show, Smith has filmed a role in Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, »
'The Sing-Off': The AcoUstiKats twerk backstage before performances
12 hours ago
It's been two years since the last season of NBC's "The Sing-Off" aired, but since then -- thanks to the success of the movie "Pitch Perfect" and to Internet phenomenon Pentatonix, who won Season 3 -- a cappella singing is en vogue again. Zap2it spoke with each of the groups competing in Season 4 to get an idea of what the competition will hold.
The University of Kentucky AcoUstiKats want you to know that they've got swag. Like, a lot of it. "We are the epitome of the Southern gentleman with a little bit of modern class and a whole lot of swag," group member Ron Wilbur tells Zap2it.
Adds Ross Hill, "We are a lot like the typical male collegiate a cappella group, but with 100 times more soul and swag."
So, to sum up: They've got lots of swag. That means, as you saw in their debut performance of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines, »
'Psych: The Musical' was 'a Herculean task,' says James Roday
13 hours ago
The musical event of the television season is almost upon us, "Psych"-Os. Stars Dule Hill and James Roday and creator Steve Franks spoke with the press Tuesday (Dec. 10) about what went into making such a big episode, which Roday says was nothing short of Herculean.
"After all the work that [Franks] did to get us there, there was no way we weren't gonna step up to deliver the goods," says Roday. "He wrote the whole thing, he conceived it, he composed it with Adam Cohen, he directed it. It was a gargantuan, Herculean task that he took on, so in some ways, when you think about it, Dule and I had the easy job of just bringing it to life."
"Steve's been so generous with letting ... [the writers] have the autonomy to do crazy things on his show over the years, that knowing that this was his baby, his crown jewel ... It was a no-brainer, »

'Doctor Who': Peter Capaldi's Doctor costume a mix of 'old-fashioned' and the future
15 hours ago
A new actor taking over the lead of "Doctor Who" means a lot of things. There's a new personality, the chemistry with his companion and, of course, the wardrobe. The look of the Doctor is as important as anything else, with each incarnation of everyone's favorite Time Lord having an individual sense of style.
Chances are the fez and tweed jacket will be retired with Matt Smith, but what about Peter Capaldi's costume? The Radio Times cites a BBC source who says Capaldi has worked with showrunner Steven Moffat, executive producer Brian Minchin and members of the art team to discover the look of the new Doctor.
According to the source, the new costume is a "bit old-fashioned to denote the fact that he is the oldest Doctor," but it's "looking to the future as well." Though Season 8 of "Doctor Who" is currently in production, the costume is being kept tightly under wraps. »
