The Biz: PBS Celebrates Music's Hall of Fame With Muscle Shoals

20 hours ago

The small Alabama town of Muscle Shoals and record producer Rick Hall don't have the same familiar caché as the renowned 1960s soul music labels Motown or Stax. But the hits Hall turned out at his legendary Fame Recording Studios are well into their fifth decade of being a beloved part of American pop culture. The familiar riffs heard...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm So Proud of Amy

18 April 2014 11:28 AM, PDT

Hey guys,

How'd you like Disney Week?

Thanks for all your votes and messages this week. They've really meant a lot to us, Amy especially. The waltz was a hard one for us, but we pushed through and I'm so proud of Amy and how well she did. We had our usual pep talk before we went out to dance and I just told her to really enjoy it. At the end of our performances, Amy is quick to criticize herself. As soon as we finish, she'll point out what she did wrong or say, "I was off-balance" or something. As I'm holding ...

Wigs, War and Witches! Shane West Talks New Wgn America Series Salem

18 April 2014 11:02 AM, PDT

Forget the magic fairy dust and enchanting spells, the witches of Salem are downright terrifying.

The upcoming Wgn America series, the network's first foray into scripted original programming, takes a fresh — and much darker -- look at the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Its witches are very real and actually manipulating the town into a state of fear. Shane West stars as war hero John Alden (historically, a survivor of the trials) who has returned home to find that his former love Mary (Janet Montgomery) has gone on to marry elderly town leader George Sibley (Michael Mulheren). What John doesn't know is that he got Mary pregnant and in order for her to get rid of the baby, she essentially made a deal with the devil-like witch Tituba (Ashley Madekwe).

Scandal Postmortem: Are Olivia and Fitz Over for Good?

18 April 2014 10:08 AM, PDT

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's Scandal finale. Read at your own risk!]

Fitz finally got what he wanted — it just cost him the one thing he cares about most.

Thursday's Scandal season finale, aptly titled "The Price of Free and Fair Election," found Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) getting elected to president for his second term on his own — and with a little (Ok, a lot of) help from the death of his son Jerry (Dylan Minnette), who was killed with a strain of bacterial meningitis. Naturally, Fitz assumed Maya Pope (Khandi Alexander) was behind the dastardly deed after her attempt to blow him up at the church failed.

Where We Left Off and What’s Next on Devious Maids

18 April 2014 7:37 AM, PDT

Lifetime's hit Devious Maids is just going into its second season, but does the juicy prime-time drama already have to worry about a name change? After all, when the series returns for Season 2 on Sunday (10/9c), not one, but two of the women will have packed their feather dusters (seemingly) for good. "We worry about that all the time and you will understand just how worried we are as the season progresses," executive producer Sabrina Wind tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "Let's just say maybe not everybody keeps their role." So what else is coming up for Marisol, Carmen, Rosie, Zoila and their employers in 90210 this year? Read on to find out...

18 April 2014 6:13 AM, PDT

Talk about a rerun. Almost every spring, the fate of NBC's Law & Order: Svu remains unsettled until the last possible moment. TV Guide Magazine talked to showrunner Warren Leight about the prospects for Season 16.

Weekend TV: Orphan Black, Salem, Lifetime Making Whoopi

18 April 2014 6:13 AM, PDT

"You are a bloody wrecking ball. You are an exploding cigar," laments a confidante of the clones under siege in BBC America's thrillingly entertaining Orphan Black. She's also a bloody marvel, as Tatiana Maslany plays these diverse doppelgangers with astonishing range and surprising nuance. Scrappy street waif? Check. High-strung soccer mom? Check. Lesbian scientist-in-training? Check. Deranged Russian assassin? Why not. Beyond a provocative premise and blistering pace, Orphan Black is a terrific showcase for one of TV's great performances. Even when it threatens to look like a stunt, with one clone at another's throat in a smackdown or layering the subterfuge when one clone pretends to be another, this bonded-by-genetics sister act never feels forced or phony.

Survivor's L.J.: "I Was Completely Shocked" by Tony's Betrayal

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT

Tony Vlachos is certainly not winning any friends on Survivor: Cagayan. Now that we've gotten to the portion of the game where people voted off become members of the jury, two out of three jurors heading into next week are victims of blindsides at least partially engineered by the New Jersey cop.

The latest castoff, L.J. McKanas, became the victim of an eyebrow-raising betrayal by Tony on Wednesday's episode, getting blindsided just a few episodes after he gave Tony his immunity idol at Tribal Council.

"I was completely shocked," McKanas tells TVGuide.com about his ouster. "I mean, when I replayed it in my mind, I thought, there's no circumstance where that makes any sense."

Scandal: Who Didn't Survive the Season Finale?

17 April 2014 8:22 PM, PDT

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's Scandal finale. Read at your own risk!]

Scandal's season finale was quite explosive — but it wasn't the bomb that was the most shocking moment.  

The big bomb scare was actually quickly resolved in the opening moments of Thursday's episode, with Jake (Scott Foley) arriving at the Oval Office to tell Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) about the bomb at the church before it exploded, which allowed them to evacuate in time. Unfortunately...

Excess Baggage: Everything Lindsay Lohan Did on Her Reality Show So Far

17 April 2014 12:47 PM, PDT

Lindsay Lohan's reality show promised an inside look at the troubled star working through her baggage and getting her life organized — we just didn't think it would be so literal.

Photos: Child stars gone bad

LiLo spent the majority of Lindsay literally sorting through mountains of crap as she moved from Los Angeles to a NYC hotel to her apartment. Yet we watched and loved every banal second of it.

With the finale just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reflect on what is surely one of the most fascinating, frustrating — and yes — boring reality shows of all time. Check out everything Lindsay did on her "comeback" series below:

James Franco Calls New York Times Theater Critic a "Little Bi---"

17 April 2014 11:57 AM, PDT

Perhaps James Franco should consider deleting his Instagram account.

Franco found himself in hot social media water (again) Thursday after referring to New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley as "a little bi---" via the photo-sharing platform. It seems Franco, who's currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, didn't take kindly to Brantley's less-than-glowing review of the play.

Top Videos: Leonardo DiCaprio Dances at Coachella, Amy Schumer Parodies Aaron Sorkin

17 April 2014 8:28 AM, PDT

This week, a bunch of kids learned what a Walkman is, and the worst Wheel of Fortune contestant ever blew not one, not two, but three puzzles on the game show. Amy Schumer and Josh Charles made a video that poked fun at Aaron Sorkin tropes, and Oreo staged a marketing campaign that challenged chefs around the country to "hack" everyone's favorite cookie. Oh, and Leonardo DiCaprio (maybe) showed off some interesting dance moves at the Coachella music festival in California.

Susan Lucci Dishes the Return of Devious Maids

17 April 2014 6:23 AM, PDT

She's back in black! Lifetime's Devious Maids returns for Season 2 on Sunday, April 20 (10/9c), with a three-month time jump and what appears to be another murder. But that delicious, high-maintenance drama queen Genevieve Delatour — played by Emmy winner Susan Lucci — has not yet recovered from last season's "Who Killed Flora?" story. In fact, she's still in deep, deep mourning. Or is she? La Lucci gave TV Guide Magazine the camptastic details.
