Melissa Benoist Shows Us That Supergirl’s Normal Activities Are Awesome

29 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

If you haven’t seen some of the behind-the-scenes photos of Supergirl star Melissa Benoit doing normal stuff in her costume then you’re in for a treat.   She’ll walk her dog on set.  She’ll talk on her iPhone.  She’ll lead girl-scouts on an adventure.  And all the while she’ll cradle her puppy. She has absolutely zero qualms about showing the world that while Supergirl is being a hero in the crime world, she’s also got real world issues that need tending to.  Needless to say we’re big fans of Melissa and decided to share a few of these candid moments of the soon-to-be television star. Our personal favorite has got to be the one of her walking her dog.  Sure it’d be much cooler if she were flying her dog but come on.  It’s just as good.  Which is your favorite snapshot? »

VH1 Cancels Hindsight, Even Though It Was Already Renewed for Season 2

28 August 2015 2:53 PM, PDT

VH1 has apparently gone back in time and decided to cancel Hindsight. Although the network had renewed the freshman time-traveling series back in March, EW.com is now reporting that the series will unfortunately no longer have a second season. “Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime line-up since 2010 and will continue to be in the future,” VH1 explained in a statement. “We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again.” Hindsight »

Gillian Vigman Is That Woman Who’s in Every Commercial Ever

28 August 2015 2:25 PM, PDT

They’re all out there.  Those actors who you see multiple times over but just never know their names?  I would say the most recognizable actress out there whose name virtually no one knows has got to be Gillian Vigman.  And yes, I just found out here name today.  So who is she?  She is most recognizable for her role as “Jack’s Wife” in many Jack in the Box commercials.  However she’s also notable for her membership in the recurring cast of comedians on sketch comedy series MADtv. She also starred in the ABC comedy Sons & Daughters. But what about other stuff?  Oh you know like being in commercials for like…everything?  Try Chase, Swiffer, DirectTV, Esurance, California Milk, McCormick, Hanes, Splenda and about a gazillion more.   Vigman’s in her 40s so she’s been doing this a while. I feel like she should get a break and be the main character… »

Mythbusters Tests Out Walter White’s Trunk Gun From The Breaking Bad Finale

28 August 2015 1:41 PM, PDT

Recently the Discovery channel released a preview of the next episode Mythbusters. Adam and Jamie and Breaking Bad genius creator Vince Gilligan attempt to test the crazy stuff that Walter White pulled off in the finale. Here’s the thing though. Do you think it’s possible to even make the trunk gun that good ol’ Walter made? Given the time he had to not only think of it but to construct it? Is this even possible? Also how in the world are you able to trap a group of violent neo-Nazis like that? Seems a little nuts don’t you think? But Adam is going to test it. What we don’t know is if he can survive the next episode. One thing’s for certain. He’ll be wearing a brown hat. So make sure you tune into the Discovery Channel to find out if Walter White was »

Five Things We Want to See in Arrow Season 4

28 August 2015 1:11 PM, PDT

We’re still over a month away from the return of Arrow to The CW (Season 4 premieres on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 8 p.m.), but the seemingly never-ending summer hiatus hasn’t stopped us from thinking, discussing, and speculating about what’s coming next in the superhero series. Season 3 of the show proved to be a divisive one, as many fans claimed that Arrow was no longer as great as it used to be, and while we have yet to see any footage of Arrow Season 4, everything we’ve learned about the new season so far has us incredibly excited about the direction the series is going in and the many possibilities for the show’s characters. From a bigger role for Diggle to a more threatening villain, here’s a list of five things that I want to see in Arrow Season 4. Diggle Back in Action It was initially understandable when Diggle was pushed to… »

New Reign Season 3 Trailer: Mary “Can’t Take on Two Queens”

28 August 2015 11:50 AM, PDT

It will be a battle of not two but three queens when Reign returns for its third season this fall on The CW, and from the look of this all-new trailer, things don’t seem to be going all that well for Mary. As Reign fans know, the show’s second ended with many twists and turns, from the news that Francis is indeed dying to Kenna’s pregnancy, and much more. However, the biggest development that occurred was Catherine arriving at English court to swear her allegiance to Elizabeth and help the Queen of England take down Mary. As shown in the video below, Catherine and Elizabeth are still plotting together to destroy the Queen of Scots, thus giving Elizabeth control over both Scotland and England. And while Mary understands that they are a major threat, she’s also losing key allies and is struggling to find a way to defeat her enemies. »

Big Bang Theory Season 9 to Feature ‘The Force Awakens’ Storyline

28 August 2015 10:23 AM, PDT

With Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hitting theaters this December, real-life nerds everywhere (including this Star Wars fanatic right here) are anxiously awaiting their opportunity to see Han, Luke, Leia, and all the new characters the series is introducing up on the big screen. However, the new Star Wars film will also impact the nerds on television as well, as TVLine is reporting that The Big Bang Theory will feature a storyline in its upcoming ninth season involving the highly anticipated sci-fi film. “We’re talking about how that will be weaved into [the guys’] lives,” Big Bang Theory executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVLine. “And we have some really cool ideas.” With Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj’s being so Star Wars obsessed, Molaro insists that “it would be weird for us not to mention” The Force Awakens‘ release. “Obviously, we’re all excited about it, just as human »

28 August 2015 9:28 AM, PDT

2015 Pilot First Impressions: Fox’s Lucifer

28 August 2015 8:47 AM, PDT

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about The CW’s Containment. Next up: Fox’s Lucifer, which premieres at midseason. The Premise: Based on the DC/Vertigo comic. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A., where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub, and begins assisting a skeptical detective on an investigation after a friend of his is murdered. The Cast: Tom Ellis (Merlin) as Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German (Chicago Fire) as Detective Chloe Dancer, Db Woodside (24) as Amenadiel, Rachael Harris (SuitsNew Girl) as Kim Martin, Scarlett Estevez (The Massively Mixed-Up Middle School Mystery) as Trixie, »

The Originals’ Two Kols, Nathaniel Buzolic and Daniel Sharman, Take a Photo Together

28 August 2015 7:34 AM, PDT

If you’re a fan of The CW’s The Originals, you’re used to multiple actors playing characters you love (or, in some cases, love to hate). This phenomenon reached new heights in Season 2 of the vampire drama, as different actors played the Mikaelson’s mother, Esther, their brother, Finn, and even Rebekah, with Maisie Richardson-Sellers taking over the role that Claire Holt originated for most of the season. While fans came to enjoy Richardson-Sellers’ portrayal of Rebekah and were big fans of Yusef Gatewood as both Finn and Vincent, there was one member of the original family that viewers always loved, thanks to both the actors that played him. I’m talking, of course, about Kol Mikaelson, who was originally played by Nathaniel Buzolic and then was portrayed by Teen Wolf‘s Daniel Sharman in The Originals Season 2. And even though the two actors never shared the screen on the CW series, »

Ghost Adventures Host Zak Bagans Buys Dr Kevorkian’s Death Mobile

28 August 2015 7:08 AM, PDT

Zak Bagans isn’t your normal TV host. While he spends much of his time on Ghost Adventures, he also spends an equal amount of time collecting really really weird stuff. Adding to his list, Baganz recently purchased Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s former mobile death assistance labratory. What did Zak buy it for? The host says that when hear Les Gold from Detroits “Hardcore Pawn” was selling the 1968 Vw van, he bought it for $32,500. Just in case you didn’t know, Kevorkian used the van during his string of 130 assisted suicides before his own death in 2011. Only one problem with the van. It doesn’t run! Zak also got the original registration a copy of Kevorkian’s driver’s license. Just in case you’re wondering what other weird stuff that Bagans has picked up, back in March he purchased the cauldron serial killer Ed Gein used to secrete dismembered body parts. »

Grandfathered Taps The Astronaut Wives Club’s Joanna Garcia Swisher to Guest Star

28 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

Looks like John Stamos’ Jimmy Martino may have a thing for redheads. The Astronaut Wives Club‘s Joanna Garcia Swisher is set to guest star on Stamos’ upcoming Fox comedy Grandfathered. EW.com first reported the casting news. The new series focuses on Stamos’ Jimmy, a successful restaurateur and man-about-town who is used to being the most suave, most handsome, and most single person in the room. But all that changes with the surprise appearance of Jimmy’s adult son, Gerald (Josh Peck) and his baby daughter, Edie, causing Jimmy to straight from single to grandfather in six seconds flat. Swisher will play Sloan, “a cute and bubbly girl who works in the admissions office at a prestigious, selective preschool that Jimmy is trying to get Edie into. Jimmy hooks up with her, causing complications with Edie’s preschool admission prospects.” As mentioned above, Garcia currently stars on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club, »

Watch Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence Dance on Top of Billy Joel’s Piano at Wrigley Field

28 August 2015 6:37 AM, PDT

It was just reported a couple of days ago that Emmy-nominated actress and writer Amy Schumer and Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence are writing a screenplay together, and while that is most definitely exciting news, I don’t think it tops what the two of them did last night at Billy Joel’s concert at Wrigley Field. Accompanied by other friends of theirs, Schumer and Lawrence joined Billy Joel on stage for his performance of “Uptown Girl,” at first only dancing around the legendary singer. However, during the song, both Schumer and Lawrence took it a step further, climbing on top of the icon’s piano and using that as their dance floor. It was all pretty fantastic. To be quite honest, my words don’t really do it justice. Check out multiple videos of Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, and the rest of their group lighting up the stage and making »

Farrah Abraham Threatens To Spit on Her Housemates on Celebrity Big Brother

28 August 2015 6:30 AM, PDT

Housemates were put up against one another in a UK vs USA challenge, in which they were tasked with choosing three celebrities who could not go to a party. Following an earlier challenge in which the Housemates had to try to knock down cardboard cut-outs of each other with a cannon, Natasha, 33, said Farrah, 24, should be disinvited from the party. During spin-off show, Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, Farrah was seen screaming at her fellow Housemates as she felt left-out. Should we feed bad for the reality star, bad girl, horrible mom, and anything else we can think of? While we’d rather not get into specifics here’s one sentence we can actually share: “I wonder if I can spit on someone from up here.” Farrah admitted that she’s not really used to spending time with other people. Still though, not spending time with others probably doesn’t… »

Kristen Taekman Takes a Break at Lego Land with the Girls

28 August 2015 6:21 AM, PDT

Kristen Taekman is one of the unfortunate TV wives who’s been in the news lately because of her willingness to stand by husband Josh after the Ashley Madison hack exposed him as a user.  She’s been receiving tons of support from the internet and friends alike.   All things considered she seems to be putting on a brave face.  Well, with the exception of the picture above. What else can she do?  Personally I think it’s a matter of time before she leaves Josh but until then we love what she’s doing on social media.  Like this latest shot of her and her daughter at Legoland captioned “Just hangin’ out with the girls.” When your husband is potentially having an affair, nothing gets your mind off of all the hoopla than spending quality time with the kids.   Although I can’t imagine her 10th wedding anniversary was anything worth writing home about. »

Bones Season 11: Betty White to Compete With Brennan

28 August 2015 5:59 AM, PDT

Bones already has plans for a major crossover in Season 11, and now it’s lined up a major guest star for this fall as well. As first reported by TVLine, Betty White will appear on the Fox drama this season as “an accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern.” Per TVLine, White will play Dr. Beth Mayer, “who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist, which will lead to some serious competition with Emily Deschanel’s Brennan.” White’s past TV credits include CommunityThe Client List, 30 Rock, Boston Legal, and, obviously, The Golden Girls, on which she played Rose Nylund. Most recently, she was a series regular on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland, »

Game of Thrones Spoilers: Stannis Is Still Alive…At Least in the Books

27 August 2015 2:43 PM, PDT

Game of Thrones‘ Season 5 finale left the futures of many major characters up in the air, from Theon and Sansa’s leap of faith to Arya’s blindness to, of course, the stabbing and apparent death of Jon Snow. Another character whose fate remains unclear is Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who appeared to be facing death at the hands of Brienne (Gwendoline Christie); however, we never saw Brienne’s sword strike the proclaimed king’s neck, as the camera cut away at the last second, leaving many to wonder if Stannis was actually alive. And while the episode’s director, David Nutter, has gone on record saying that the script’s intent was that Stannis was killed by Brienne, author George R.R. Martin is now telling fans that, at least in his novels, Stannis is still living and breathing. Martin answered the question on his LiveJournal earlier this week, when »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 3: 24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub to Guest Star as Charles’ Love Interest

27 August 2015 1:47 PM, PDT

Uh oh, Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans, sounds like Charles is about to go “Full Boyle” in the upcoming third season of the hit Fox comedy. And the woman that will be capturing Charles’ eye (and heart) won’t be anyone from the precinct; in fact, she’s not a cop at all. Mary Lynn Rajskub, best known for her role as computer whiz (and best friend of Jack Bauer) Chloe O’Brien in Fox’s 24, will guest star in Season 3 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Charles’ latest love. Her character, Genevieve, is a successful art gallery owner who Charles believes might just be his soulmate, and since we know Charles’ track record with women (just look at what’s happened with Rosa, Vivian, and even Gina last season), we’re pretty sure that his romance with Genevieve won’t exactly play out as he hopes. Still, though, even if Rajskub’s Genevieve »

TBS Renews American Dad! for Two More Seasons

27 August 2015 1:19 PM, PDT

American Dad! isn’t leaving TBS anytime soon. The cable network renewed the animated comedy for two more seasons, the show’s twelfth and thirteenth, earlier today. American Dad! will continue to air on TBS through 2018, with Adult Swim still airing encores of each new episode after they debut on TBS. Today’s American Dad! renewal is for 44 more new episodes of the series, 22 for both Season 12 and Season 13. Back in November, TBS renewed American Dad for Season 11, which is slated to air on both TBS and Adult Swim beginning in early 2016. “American Dad! has thrived since coming to TBS and Adult Swim, demonstrating the Turner portfolio’s ability to build enduring hits through a combination of smart programming, savvy promotion and extensive multiplatform distribution,” said Deborah Bradley, executive vice president of networks optimization and content commercialization for Turner Broadcasting. “We look forward to keeping the crazy-but-lovable Smith family around for a long… »

Homeland Season 5 Trailer: Domesticated Carrie, Deadly Quinn & More

27 August 2015 12:12 PM, PDT

Homeland may be changing locations to Berlin for its upcoming fifth season, but Showtime’s first official trailer for the spy drama makes it clear that, even though the characters might be in a different country, the show will be just as intense and action-packed as ever. In the two-plus minutes of video, there’s bombs exploding, people being kidnapped, new characters putting on really scary-looking masks, and Carrie actually appearing to be a good mother to her daughter (which might be the most shocking moment of all). However, even though Carrie is attempting to make a fresh start in Germany, it seems that she won’t be able to keep whatever new life she has for long. “Maybe I knew some day the past would catch up with me,” she says in the trailer, an idea that is reiterated with this season’s tagline: “The only way out is back in. »
