Video: How Did Louis C.K. Do as SNL Host Post-Sandy?

4 November 2012 7:57 AM, PST

Louis C.K. took on a tough task hosting Saturday Night Live just days after Hurricane Sandy ripped through much of the show's home city. But from his opening monologue, the comedian wasted no time in addressing the disaster and then immediately (but also tastefully) poking fun at the city's residents.

"Today they turned the power back on which is great because we can go back to using way too much electricity, like insane amounts of electricity," he joked.

Seal Team Six Offers an Entertaining Look at bin Laden Raid, But Won't Sway Voters

3 November 2012 1:14 PM, PDT

Controversy arose when the National Geographic Channel announced that it will premiere a film about the successful military raid that killed Osama bin Laden two days before the presidential election, but anyone who walks away thinking that Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden is a political piece has blinders on.

From the first 15 minutes — which include an intense, violent firefight — it's clear that the film's purpose is to provide entertainment, not to advance a political agenda. President Barack Obama is merely a background player (albeit an obviously necessary one), while the real focus is ...

Once Upon a Time's Trip to the Past Helps with Emma's Giant Predicament

2 November 2012 3:01 PM, PDT

We've seen Once Upon a Time travel to many lands, both magical and real world, but this Sunday the ABC fairy tale drama will venture somewhere it's never gone before: Into Emma's past!

This week's Once will travel back to when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was vulnerable and wide-eyed, attempting to make it on her own as an adult for the first time. "You really get to see the difference of where she was at 10 years ago as opposed to now," Morrison tells TVGuide.com, explaining that at 18, though damaged, Emma still had hope that life could change after being raised in the foster care system. "By the time we meet her on her 28th birthday in the pilot of Once, she...

2 November 2012 1:14 PM, PDT

Miranda Lambert was overcome with emotion at last night's Cma Awards as she accepted the Song of the Year award with her husband Blake Shelton for their duet "Over You."

Fox Slashes Episode Order for The Goodwin Games

2 November 2012 11:18 AM, PDT

Fox has reduced the order of its midseason comedy The Goodwin Games from 13 episodes to seven, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

A lack of room on Fox's Tuesday comedy block is the reason for the change, according to a network rep. Fox recently ordered 24 episodes of Raising Hope, New Girl and The Mindy Project, along with 19 episodes of Ben and Kate. The seven Goodwin Games episodes will air sometime in the spring.

The single-camera comedy, from How I Met Your Mother executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris, stars Becki Newton, Scott Foley and Tj Miller as estranged siblings who reconnect when they stand to inherit a fortune after their father's death.

USA Cancels Political Animals

2 November 2012 10:35 AM, PDT

Political Animals will not return for a second season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

The six-episode series, starring Sigourney Weaver and Carla Gugino, was originally conceived as a miniseries, but producer Greg Berlanti and some of the show's stars hinted that it might be picked up for a second season if the initial run drew enough viewers.

Poll: Should the New York City Marathon Go On?

2 November 2012 9:08 AM, PDT

New York City is fully immersed in Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts, with thousands of residents still without power and mass transit only partially restored, but the city is still planning to hold its marathon on Sunday. Some are calling the race a symbol of New Yorkers' resilience, while others are lambasting the decision, saying that the resources being diverted to the race could be better used in such devastated areas like Staten Island and parts of Queens.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has never wavered in his decision to continue with the marathon, even though other elected officials, including Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, and some runners have said it should be postponed or canceled.

The Vampire Diaries: 5 Ways We Want Elena to Lose Control

2 November 2012 8:41 AM, PDT

The Vampire Diaries' new vamp Elena finally let loose on Thursday's episode, but she ultimately stopped herself from going over the edge. But was that short-lived glimpse of a wild Elena more fun than the even-keeled, loyal and — dare we say — slightly boring girl we've seen over the past three seasons?

Now that Elena has had a taste for blood and losing control, here's what we'd like to see during her first year as a vampire.

Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin Return to TV in ABC's Malibu Country

2 November 2012 7:57 AM, PDT

You won't hear any talk about vittles and varmints and cee-ment ponds on Malibu Country — premiering Friday at 8:30/7:30c on ABC — but there's no denying Reba McEntire's new series owes much to The Beverly Hillbillies. This fish-out-of-water comedy stars the country-music icon as Reba Gallagher, a freshly divorced Nashville mom and former singer who moves cross-country with her two impressionable teens to live in her ex-hubby's Malibu love shack. Also in tow: Reba's anything-goes mom, Lillie Mae, played by legendary comedian Lily Tomlin.
