Box Office: Melissa McCarthy Gets Last Laugh As Identity Thief Steals the Weekend

10 February 2013 2:07 PM, PST

Film critic Rex Reed may not have enjoyed Melissa McCarthy's performance in Identity Thief, but that didn't stop moviegoers from coming out in droves to see the new comedy over the weekend.

Identity Thief, which stars Jason Bateman as the victim of McCarthy's (yep) identity thief, opened in first place by a landslide, earning $36.6 million over the weekend despite a severe winter storm that caused several movie theaters in the Northeast to close temporarily, Box Office Mojo reports.

10 February 2013 8:23 AM, PST

No more Mr. Nice Governor.

On Sunday's midseason premiere of The Walking Dead (9/8c, AMC), the Governor (David Morrissey) will begin to more closely resemble the arch villain from the graphic novels that inspired the series. And why wouldn't he? After all, the Governor's town has been attacked and Michonne (Danai Gurira) has both killed his zombie daughter and taken out his eye with a shard of glass.

David Beckham Had a Butt Double in H&M Ad

9 February 2013 8:32 AM, PST

Why on Earth would soccer hunk David Beckham need a butt double?

In the Guy Ritchie-directed video for clothing company H&M, Beckham gets locked out his home so he races through the streets in his tight green underwear in search of keys. (Unfortunate for him, lucky for us.) But if you take a closer look, there are some continuity errors with the tattoos on Beckham's bod. The reason? Even Beckham has a butt double -- although his reasons were more about timing than modesty.

Once Upon a Time's Josh Dallas: Will the Residents of Storybrooke Go Back to Fairy Tale Land?

8 February 2013 5:27 PM, PST

Ever since the curse was broken, it's been a hot topic up for discussion: When will the residents of Storybrooke find a way to return to fairy tale land?

As we saw earlier this season on Once Upon a Time, fairy tale land is no longer as magical as it once was. Now a desolate land overrun by ogres, it isn't really much of a home for Storybrooke townsfolk to go back to. Still, it won't stop them from trying — especially when they face a giant problem in this Sunday's episode, airing 8/7c on ABC.

Lightning Round 5: Once Upon a Time bosses answer your burning questions

Anton the giant (Jorge Garcia) returns this week, ready to wreak havoc after a case of mistaken identity sets him hellbent on destroying David (Josh Dallas). But it's David who just may be the key to getting our favorite fairy tale characters home. »

Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara Previews Upcoming War; Discusses His Exit

8 February 2013 5:03 PM, PST

The Walking Dead kicks off the second half of its third season Sunday (10/9c, AMC), which marks the beginning of the end for former showrunner Glen Mazzara.

In late December, AMC announced that its megahit series — which drew a whopping 10.5 million viewers for its midseason finale — was renewed for a fourth season, but it would go on without Mazzara, who will be replaced by Dead writer Scott Gimple. This wasn't the first time that this has happened, either. Mazzara had actually replaced original showrunner Frank Darabont.

Walking Dead names new showrunner for Season 4

Despite his exit, Mazzara is still promoting the show because of his work on the latter half of Season 3. Below, Mazzara discusses his exit, any regrets he may have and then teases the impending war between the prison and Woodbury.  Lest we forget, Daryl (Norman Reedus) is in the clutches of the deranged Governor (David Morrissey), who just lost his eye, »

Playing Matchmaker for Downton Abbey's Lovelorn Servants

8 February 2013 4:24 PM, PST

"You know the trouble with you lot? You're all in love with the wrong people." -- the wisdom of Mrs. Patmore

Not every servant on Downton Abbey can have the fairy tale romance of Bates and Anna (false murder rap and imprisonment aside), and a servant in the 1920s is further constrained by his/her status. For every Gwen (Rose Leslie) who opened up her romantic prospects by becoming a secretary, sadly there's a fallen Ethel (Amy Nuttall) who's forced into prostitution after having an affair with a military man. What's one of the serving class to do but flirt awkwardly with one of their own in hopes of safely pairing off?

Ratings: Community Grows in Return; Scandal Ties High

8 February 2013 9:09 AM, PST

Good news, Human Beings! Community went up — just a tick, but still — in its long-awaited Season 4 return.

Thursday's premiere drew 4 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up a tenth from last season's premiere and up five-tenths from the Season 3 finale. That's also higher than the dearly departed 30 Rock's average in the timeslot and is Community's best performance since March 15, when it returned from a lengthy midseason hiatus.

Which canceled show should return?

Community boosted Parks and Recreation (3.8 million, 2.0) to a season high and The Office (4.2 million, 2.1) rising ...

The Weekend Playlist: Grammys Sing Live vs. Walking Dead, Guy Meets Girls

8 February 2013 6:36 AM, PST

Singing or screaming? It's your choice on one of the busiest Sundays in a while. While CBS' standards-and-practices watchdogs are apparently keeping a close eye on any potential wardrobe malfunctions, the show goes on at The 55th Annual Grammy Awards (8/7c) from L.A.'s Staples Center, where it's probably easier to name who isn't performing or presenting than listing the full talent roster. (One star not on CBS' list: Justin Bieber, who's busy hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend.)

General Hospital's Kin Shriner on John Stamos, Genie Francis and the Pot-Smoking Eighties

7 February 2013 8:16 PM, PST

It's hard to tell who's more excited about Kin Shriner's February 19 return to General Hospital — him or us! The most beloved third wheel in suds history, Shriner's Scotty Baldwin was married to Laura (Genie Francis) back when she famously fell in love with Luke (Anthony Geary). Will the poor guy finally get revenge? According to an ABC rep, "Scott Baldwin returns to Port Charles as most of the town is gathered at the Haunted Star for a Valentine's Day party and the first person he sees is Luke. Things will escalate very quickly between the two of them."

Best Moments: Mother's Robin Sparkles Is Back and Scandal's Shocking Twist

7 February 2013 8:05 PM, PST

Our best moments of the week:

11. Worst (Best) Moment of Truth: After suspecting it for weeks on The Mindy Project, Mindy finally confronts the guy she's been dating — Jaime (B.J. Novak) — about his best friend, who seems to be the Sally to his Harry. After an intense line of questioning from Mindy in the line to go to the top of the Empire State Building, Jaime realizes he actually is in love with his best friend. The moment would be slightly more romantic if a) he was in love with Mindy, b) it wasn't Valentine's Day and c) he didn't completely trip over himself on...

Why Girls' New Season Completely Changed My Mind (For the Better)

7 February 2013 7:06 PM, PST

As someone who's been very vocal about my nuanced dislike for Girls, it both shocks and pains me to say this, but I like — no, I love — the second season of the divisive HBO comedy. Well, at least the four episodes I've seen so far. There's always a chance the series will nosedive starting in Episode 5, but as of now, the show has completely reinvented itself in my mind. And for all you other Girls haters out there, let me explain why I firmly advocate that you give the show another chance.

CBS' The Job Offers Contestants a Shot at Their Dream Gig

7 February 2013 7:00 PM, PST

Two years ago, a conversation Michael Davies had with his daughter, then a 19-year-old college student, inspired him to create a reality show about people trying to find employment.

"When she finished up freshman year at school, she told me that she had no intention of going back for her sophomore year," Davies tells TVGuide.com. "And when I asked her why, she said because none of the graduating seniors in her college have real jobs."

And thus, CBS's The Job, which premieres Friday at 8/7c, was born.
