'Arrow' Season 2, episode 16 video: Diggle gets stuck with the 'Suicide Squad'
12 hours ago
The upcoming "Arrow" Season 2 episode, "Suicide Squad," is going to be a tough one for John Diggle (David Ramsey). Not only does he have to supervise a bunch of criminals going on a seemingly impossible mission, he also has to make nice with Deadshot (Michael Rowe), the man who killed Diggle's brother.
In addition to Diggle and Deadshot, the Squad also features A.R.G.U.S. mastermind Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), Shrapnel (Sean Maher) and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White). Diggle is used to dealing with morally vague tough guys like Oliver Queen, but this takes the grey areas to a whole new level.
"Suicide Squad" airs Wednesday, March 19 at 8 p.m. on The CW. »
'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 17: 'Knockout Game' causes expectant couple's tragedy and more
13 hours ago
A personal tragedy can affect someone in unforeseen ways.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) got new proof in "Knockout Game," Friday's (March 14) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods" written by co-executive producer Brian Burns and directed by Robert Harmon, who also worked with series star Tom Selleck on most of the "Jesse Stone" TV movies.
The story opened with expectant parents Mike and Stephanie Rose (guest stars Josh Segarra and Rose Hemingway) taking an evening stroll and discussing possible names for their child. Suddenly, a gang of youths came rushing up behind them and one punched Stephanie in the face, felling her. A panicked Mike cradled her and screamed for help.
Frank (Selleck) already had concerns about the so-called "knockout game" being practiced randomly throughout the city's boroughs. As he struggled to determine factors linking the attacks, he ordered the NYPD to reach out to informants for any potentially useful information.

'Banshee's' Demetrius Grosse discusses the shocking ending to Season 2
14 hours ago
"Banshee" took a dark(er) turn in the final minutes of its Season 2 finale when Emmett and his wife were in the process of escaping the town where they had just experienced the heartbreaking loss of their unborn baby at the hands of a skinhead attack on Emmett's wife and were gunned down before they could escape to Florida and try to put their lives back together.
Actor Demetrius Grosse tells Zap2it that he was shocked at that turn of events and while he of course has no ill will towards the Cinemax drama, the way the show ended his character's arc doesn't sit well with him.
"Initially when I read the story, I was kind of appalled. I didn't understand why the writers decided to kill off Emmett. I think it's a non-sequitur that happens in this show," says Grosse. "The retaliation that Emmet inflicts, I feel like »
'Tanked' helps animals with Nascar driver Ryan Newman
16 hours ago
In Friday's (March 14) episode of Animal Planet's "Tanked," aquarium experts Wayde King and Brett Raymer of the Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (Atm) head to Statesville, N.C., to meet a racing legend and help rescue some of God's critters.
Newman, who drives for Richard Childress Racing, and his wife, Krissie, own Rescue Ranch, a non-profit animal-welfare organization founded in January 2012, which helps to end pet overpopulation and provide humane care.
Atm takes on the challenge of creating a desk-shaped freshwater tank for Newman, that not only features fish but reproductions of some of his favorite pets -- such as a bulldog, a Laborador retriever, rabbits, turtles and snakes -- all surrounding a realistic-looking Nascar helmet.
"He bought 200 acres for his wife," King tells Zap2it, "and they save animals. They bring them to the ranch, and they have an education program so that kids can learn about the animals and touch them. »
Joe Morton joins TNT pilot 'Proof': The end of Rowan on 'Scandal'?
17 hours ago
Papa Pope's found himself a brand-new gig.
"Proof" tells the story of a skeptical, hard-science, female surgeon, Katherine (Jennifer Beals), who's grappling with a handful of family problems, including a recent tragic death. She begins investigating cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences and hauntings -- looking for proof to answer one of humanity's greatest questions: Is death the true end, or is there something else beyond it?
Morton is set to co-star as Dr. Charles Russell, the serious and intimidating head of Katherine's hospital. He finds himself driven to control her, but appreciates her talents and her commitment.
THR reports that the casting in the pilot "leaves the door open" for Morton to return to "Scandal," though that's only likely a possibility until the series gets a full order. »
'Gold Rush' season finale: Grandpa John Schnabel is 'feeling wonderful' and proud of Parker
17 hours ago
On Friday, March 7, after the first part of the "Gold Rush" Season 4 finale aired on Discovery Channel, fans worried about the health of legendary Alaskan miner John Schnabel, the beloved "grandpa" of 19-year-old miner Parker Schnabel, who's been working this season for equally legendary Canadian miner Tony Beets in the Klondike.
The elder Schnabel was undergoing treatment for a recurrence of cancer, and fans rushed to the Internet, concerned that something terrible had happened to the kindly 94-year-old, whose gentle manner, sage advice and obvious love for his grandson have endeared him to viewers' hearts.
But Parker assuaged fans' fears, tweeting, "My grandpa is way more of a bada** than I'll ever be."
And by the end of the episode, Schnabel and both grandsons -- Payson and Parker -- were back at Smith Creek, part of a family claim deeded to them jointly by Schnabel (according to him, 49 percent to each grandson, »
'Game of Thrones' featurette explains how showrunners got 'best job in the world'
18 hours ago
"Game of Thrones" has grown into a cultural phenomenon, but initially it was something of a gamble for HBO. The series' two showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, had no TV or film experience before they pitched "Game of Thrones" to the network, though they've proven themselves more than capable in the time since they got the gig.
In the above video -- which is narrated by Tywin Lannister himself, Charles Dance -- David and Dan explain how they became friends, how they became fans of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series and how they convinced George R.R. Martin to let them film his unfilmable story. It's quite interesting and funny, and proves how dedicated they are to making "Game of Thrones" the best series it can be.
"Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO on April 6 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt. »
'The Walking Dead' Season 4: Will the group arrive in Terminus in episode 14?
18 hours ago
For use on external sites w/exclusive video premieres.
AMC released a new trailer for "The Walking Dead" that focuses about the mysterious new location Terminus. But considering this is being released in the days leading up to episode 14 airing, does this mean viewers can expect the show to finally reach Terminus this weekend?
By the end of last week's "Alone," all of the characters in "The Walking Dead" except Beth (who had been kidnapped) and Daryl (who joined/was taken by a group of violent men) were on the road to Terminus. The time discrepancies between each of the characters' storylines are unclear, but chances are Carol, Tyreese, Mika and Lizzie are the farthest ahead on the journey.
That would make sense considering the promo for episode 14, "The Grove," focused solely on that group. Though the promo seemed to imply only those four characters would be in this episode, »
'Celebrity Apprentice' cast: Kate Gosselin, Geraldo Rivera, 'Housewives' approached?
18 hours ago
While NBC hasn't officially announced when the latest season of "The Celebrity Apprentice" will begin, it sounds like the production is well underway in the casting department. The latest stars rumored to be competing for Donald Trump's adoration include Kate Gosselin, Geraldo Rivera, Keshia Knight Pulliam and a couple of "Real Housewives."
According to TMZ, Rivera, Pulliam and Gosselin are all signed on to appear on the seventh season of the show, alongside "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore.
NBC had not confirmed that the show would even return for the 2013-14 season until January. NBC head of alternative programming Paul Telegdy said the holdup on the official announcement was because of casting issues.
"In the celebrity iteration of 'The Apprentice,' we obviously need to know we can cast the show," Telegdy, told TV critics in July »
'Homeland' Season 4 promotes Nazanin Boniadi to series regular
19 hours ago
Nazanin Boniadi might be busy on "Scandal" right now, but soon she will be getting an increased role in "Homeland." The actress, who portrayed Fara Sherazi in Season 3, has been promoted to series regular in Season 4.
It makes sense that "Homeland" would want to keep around its lesser players instead of adding too many new actors to the mix. Season 3 ended on a bit of a reboot for the show, and Season 4 will follow Carrie Mathison as she heads into the field. Fara will have a "key role" working for Carrie in the CIA, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
"Obviously it's going to require a fair bit of reinvention, but [showrunner] Alex [Gansa] and his team are inheriting a lot of players still on the board, most notably Carrie [Claire Danes]," executive producer Howard Gordon told Zap2it at the TCA 2014 winter press tour, where he was promoting his new FX series "Tyrant." "I mean, »
'Banshee' Season 2 finale: Star Hoon Lee's 'petrifying' flashback, plus Rabbit's presence resolved
20 hours ago
"Banshee" is wrapping up its second season on Friday (March 14) with an action-packed finale, appropriately titled "Bullets and Tears." Star Hoon Lee teases for Zap2it a fun flashback he takes part in, where his character Job is dancing in a club.
"It was a little treacherous. I usually describe myself as an actor who moves badly. I wouldn't say it was 'fun' so much as 'petrifying,'' says Lee with a laugh. "We worked with James Allsop, who is a very well-regarded choreographer. He was just incredibly nurturing, lots of holding my hand as I quietly wept in the corner."
A good portion of the "Banshee" finale occurs in flashbacks, tied to the infamous diamond heist that has propelled the entire series from its inception. "In some ways the diamonds are a little bit of a MacGuffin, they're a little bit of a proxy for what was the relationship »
'Piers Morgan Live' wraps March 28: CNN's replacement plan
20 hours ago
The end date for "Piers Morgan Live" has been set by CNN, as has their plan for the series' time slot once Morgan takes his leave.
The news and politics talk show will air its last episode on Friday, March 28, after which a laundry list of familiar CNN names will take a spin behind the host's desk before the network announces a permanent replacement.
CNN's 9 p.m. hour will see multiple temporary fill-ins, including Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Michael Smerconish and Bill Weir. Weir, an anchor and chief innovation correspondent, will also sub for Morgan next week while the outgoing host is on vacation.
Though he's losing his show, Morgan has stated that he'd like to continue to do "big" interviews for the network, telling The New York Times, "I'd like to do work -- interviews with big celebrities and powerful people -- that is better suited to what I »

21 hours ago
Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood have been touring the country on and off since 2002 performing a two-man show called "An Evening with Colin and Brad," performing improv sketches and games -- some from their years on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and some that are brand new.

'Teen Mom 2' canceled? Season 5 might be the last for Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry
23 hours ago
Update: An MTV spokesperson tells Zap2it that "no decisions have been made regarding additional seasons of "Teen Mom 2."
An insider revealed to the gossip site that MTV wants to end "Teen Mom 2" with high ratings instead of fizzling out down the road. The network also added additional episodes to the current Season 5 instead of renewing the series for a whole new season.
"Though it is not Season 6, per se, it's pretty much another season," a source close to production tells the site. "The girls already filmed a reunion for 'Season 5′ but this season is technically 'Season 5B.'"
Zap2it reached out for confirmation but did not heard back at the time of publication. »
'Veronica Mars': 10 fun facts learned at Paleyfest 2014
14 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT
The "Veronica Mars" cast made their last public appearance before the movie's release Thursday (March 13) at the opening night of Paleyfest 2014. It was a night of love from both the actors and the audience as everyone celebrated the arrival of the fan-funded film.
Though the panel was jam-packed with jokes, most of which came from Chris Lowell's assertion that everyone hates Piz, creator Rob Thomas and his cast also revealed some very interesting facts about the history of the movie and series.
They almost Kickstarted the movie in 2012That's right, it almost happened a year earlier. Thomas told the audience that the video that was eventually used with the campaign was actually shot in 2012. The original campaign was only three or four days from launching when Warner Bros. pulled the plug. According to Thomas, that was the lowest point of his career, as he thought "Veronica Mars" was dead in the water. »
TV ratings: 'Big Bang Theory' tops night, 'American Idol' down in time slot change
14 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT
Fast National ratings for Thursday, March 13, 2014
"The Big Bang Theory" continues to be CBS' winning comedy as it brought in 17.3 million viewers and a 10.4/18 households rating on March 13. Though it was down from its 17.9 million viewers (10.7/18) the week before, it still was by far the most-watched program of the night.
The series continues to be a great lead-in for "The Millers," which was the second-most watched program of the night. Also performing well was "Scandal" (down from last week, but still winning the coveted 18-49 demographic in its timeslot). Meanwhile, "Once Upon A Time in Wonderland," "Parks and Recreation" and "Reign" held steady from the previous week, and "Community" eked out a slight increase in viewers and ratings.
"American Idol" continued its dip in ratings from earlier this week when the results show moved from the 8 p.m. hour to 9 p.m. Though it still topped its competitors, it was »

'Mad Men' Season 7 pic: January Jones' Betty has a lot of baggage
14 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT
As with all the other cast shots thus far, the photo of Jones as Betty shows her at an airport. Cigarette in hand and wearing a bold, pink-and-purple dress and short hair, she looks vaguely annoyed at something or someone. The skycap at the right of the shot looks to be the same one as in the picture of Don (Jon Hamm) and Megan (Jessica Pare), so you can imagine she spotted her ex and his current wife and is none too pleased to see them.
"Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner has cautioned against reading anything into the cast photos, saying he just liked the contrast between the relative glamor of air travel in the late 1960s and the slog it is today. So »
'Resurrection' Season 1, episode 2 spoilers: Is Elaine's back-from-the-dead father hiding something?
14 March 2014 5:30 AM, PDT
By the end of the series premiere, "Resurrection" had upped the count of back-from-the-dead family members to two: 8-year-old Jacob and Elaine's father Caleb. When episode 2 airs this Sunday (March 16), don't expect any more deceased family members to show up. "Unearth" focuses on the mystery surrounding Jacob and Caleb's return to Arcadia ... and one of the two is hiding a secret.
Here are five spoilers from the episode:
- The beginning of the episode ups the creep factor behind the idea of people coming back from the dead. But this is a show more focused on the drama behind what the returned family members means for everyone rather than the fact that they did indeed return from the dead, so don't get too hung up on the opening scene.
- While Elaine is over the moon about getting a second chance with her father, her brother Ray is less than enthused. »
