11 November 2012 3:15 PM, PST

MTV is shutting down America’s Best Dance Crew.

Randy Jackson’s long-running competition series is coming to an end on the network. MTV released this statement to EW: “We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience seven amazing seasons of dance with Abdc, and look forward to more successful and dynamic entertaining collaborations in the future.”

'Once Upon a Time': Meghan Ory on Ruby's high anxiety episode

11 November 2012 3:06 PM, PST

Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? Everyone in Storybrooke.

At least, that’s the case this week when a man turns up dead following the first post-curse full moon, leaving more than a few suspicions directed toward resident wolf-girl, Ruby. And as Meghan Ory teases, Ruby isn’t taking the pressure well. “The main thing that’s been on her mind is ‘What’s going to happen? Am I going to turn into a wolf?’” she says. “She’s been having some wolf senses come back, so this is the make or break point. She’s pretty stressed out. »

'The Walking Dead': Lauren Cohan teases group 'mayhem' and the softer side of Daryl

11 November 2012 1:57 PM, PST

Last week, Lauren Cohan watched The Walking Dead with the rest of the country, knowing that by the end of the hour the gang would once again bid farewell to a longtime member. And even though she knew it was coming, she says, “I was weeping like a baby — no pun intended.”

But this week the weeping takes a (momentary) backseat to panic as the gang must fight to keep Lori’s child alive in a world short on baby formula.

Cohan chatted with EW about the gang’s next big hurdle and more. (If you’re not caught up, »

'Revolution' cast on which gadgets they'd miss most

11 November 2012 8:51 AM, PST

We asked the producers and cast of NBC’s Revolution which item that’s made possible by electricity they would miss the most if there was an actual prolonged global blackout like on the hit show.

Cars? Central heating? Perfectly formed processed snack foods? Most said the same item they were holding in their hands during the interview — their cell phone — but a few had different answers.

Ironically, not one member of the show’s team said television!

'Malibu Country' ratings drop as 'Boss' rises

10 November 2012 8:43 AM, PST

A Friday night reversal. After last week’s strong debuts by ABC comedies Last Man Standing and Malibu Country, this week CBS’ Undercover Boss rose up to overthrow the sitcoms.

Boss had 9 million viewers and a 2.1 adult demo rating, up 33.333333 etc. percent from last week. That not only won 8 p.m. but also came very close to topping ABC’s Shark Tank (6.7 million, 2.1) at 9 p.m. Tank slipped from last week’s series high, which is no surprise since the ABC sitcoms provided a softer lead-in this week, but this is still its second-biggest number ever.

Last Man Standing (7.3 million, »

'The Good Wife': Matthew Perry to return

9 November 2012 5:29 PM, PST

There will likely be no objections to this news: Matthew Perry is returning to The Good Wife. CBS announced that Perry –  who’s been busy starring on freshman NBC comedy Go On — will reprise his guest role as Mike Kresteva, the slimy attorney and adversary of Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) who plans to run against her husband, Peter (Chris Noth), for governor.

Perry’s episode is slated to air in early 2013.

'America's Funniest Home Videos' hits 500 eps: The writers pick their Top 10 clips -- Video

9 November 2012 4:03 PM, PST

It began all the way back in 1989, with a man jumping on a diving board that breaks in half, depositing him unceremoniously into a pool. Since then, America’s Funniest Home Videos has left no wacky clip unspooled: Take the woman who tumbles into a pool after a diving board accident. Or the kid who tumbles into a pool after a diving board accident. Or the dog who tumbles into a pool after a diving board accident…

Indeed, over the last 23 seasons of the original viral video machine, we’ve seen it all: more than 26,000 clips of high jinks, from great ones to groaners, »

'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert's wedding will be televised

9 November 2012 2:04 PM, PST

For fans still reeling from Emily and Jef’s breakup this should help lessen the sting: Bachelorette Ashley Hebert’s upcoming wedding to J.P. Rosenbaum will be televised on ABC, the network announced today.

Hebert, who chose love with Rosenbaum during her cycle of the dating show in August 2011, will participate in a whole wedding extravaganza. The special will include dress fittings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and of course the big day itself. The best part? The ceremony is being officiated by Chris Harrison.

Hebert is the second Bachelorette to make it to the altar. Funnily enough, Trista Sutter, who was the first, »

'Firefly: Browncoats Unite': Nathan Fillion reveals a great unproduced script idea -- Exclusive

9 November 2012 12:48 PM, PST

Ten years ago, Joss Whedon’s Firefly made its debut on television. Like most of Whedon’s TV efforts, it generally went unappreciated — ratings were never strong, mostly because it kept shifting time slots and was initially shown out of order — but also was deeply adored by the cult of fans who hung on every adventure of Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the crew of the Serenity. Though it was canceled after only 13 episodes, the show was one of the first great success stories for TV-on-dvd, and the demand was so intense that the Whedon got the cast back »

'Kitchen Nightmares': Gordon Ramsay gets a frosty reception in Brooklyn -- Exclusive Video

9 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST

There are few moments more chilling (in every sense of the word) than when Gordon Ramsay heads into the freezer of his latest Kitchen Nightmares victimproject. On tonight’s episode, when Ramsay ventures into the walk-in of Brooklyn eatery Mama Maria’s, he finds it brimming with frozen food — one of the bulldogish super-chef’s worst pet peeves. Despite the sub-zero temperatures, Ramsay gets hot under the collar in this exclusive clip you’ll have to see to believe. Check it out below.

Kitchen Nightmares airs tonight at 8 p.m. Et on Fox.

'The Following' strikingly gorgeous new poster

9 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST

Thus quoth the raven: “Wow”!

Wish we had this poster in time for our recent fall TV ads graded gallery. After releasing teasers and cast shots in recent weeks, Fox is now unveiling its official “key art” for Kevin Williamson’s The Following. Yes, this uses the same elements we’ve seen before (a girl with Edgar Allan Poe lines scrawled on her body). But this is a much more striking version of that idea. Check out the ad below. The Following premieres Monday, Jan. 21.

High-res version.

Here’s a new “all audiences” trailer for The Following, or watch the “intense” version here. »

'Suburgatory': Malin Akerman meets the neighbors...and is judged -- Exclusive Clip

9 November 2012 11:00 AM, PST

Judging from this exclusive clip from Suburgatory’s next new episode, we’re guessing first impressions aren’t among Tessa’s mom’s strong points. And that’s too bad because — as her daughter once learned — they’re everything in Chatswin.

Luckily, we think there’s a chance Alex (Malin Akerman) can bounce back from this mildly embarrassing introduction to the neighbors. Her meeting with her daughter, however? We’re not so sure that’ll go smoothly — especially considering the two haven’t been face-to-face since Tessa (Jane Levy) was a baby. Awkward…

Tune in Wednesday to see it all for yourself. »

'Beauty and the Beast' gets full season

9 November 2012 10:55 AM, PST

Beauty and the Beast will roar into 2013.

The new supernatural crime drama starring Kristin Kreuk just received an additional nine episodes from The CW.

This marks the second freshman drama to get a full ride from the network this fall (the first, of course, is Arrow). So far, the show is averaging 2.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-34, the network’s target demographic.

What about Emily Owens M.D.? No decision yet on Tuesday’s quirky doctor dramedy. We bet that Beauty would get a full season and not Emily Owens in the most recent edition of Death Watch. »

Chuck Lorre apologizes for 'Bachelor' criticism

9 November 2012 10:08 AM, PST

Chuck Lorre is (sorta) trying to make good with Bachelor producers and fans after making a dig at the show last week.

In an online version of his weekly vanity card, the Two and a Half Men/Big Bang Theory executive producer made an off-hand remark about the ABC reality series while tackling a number of larger political issues in anticipation of the then-upcoming presidential election. “What does it say about us when we think the institution of marriage is threatened by gay people who love each other, but not by idiotic game shows like The Bachelor?” he wrote in part. »

Ratings: Is NBC overusing 'The Voice'?

9 November 2012 9:09 AM, PST

The Voice’s rescue tour around NBC’s schedule continued Thursday night, with a special edition of the competition series boosting comedies The Office and Parks and Recreation. But was it worth it?

The night before, another special airing of The Voice gave considerable lift to Chicago Fire (and the firefighting drama was then picked up for a full season). Last night, The Voice (9 million, 3.0) gave a big lead into The Office (5.3 million viewers, 2.5 adults 18-49 rating) and Parks (3.8 million, 1.8). Both comedies improved considerably from their last original airings (The Office was up 32 percent to a season high). But even with the increase, »

TV Land's 'Happily Divorced': Molly Shannon tapped to guest star -- Exclusive

9 November 2012 8:29 AM, PST

Fran Drescher isn’t the only one who will be Happily Divorced come next year: EW has just exclusively learned that SNL alum Molly Shannon will guest on the TV Land sitcom, in an episode set to air not long after the new year.

Shannon is set to play the Maggie, the sister of Peter (John Michael Higgins), the gay guy who used to be married to — and still lives with — florist Fran (Fran Drescher). Like Fran, Shannon’s character is recently divorced and moves to La to stay with the odd couple. The casting actually pits Shannon against Drescher, »

Taylor Swift will perform on 'X Factor' next week

9 November 2012 7:45 AM, PST

Hot off the heels of her Dancing With the Stars: All Stars performance last week, Taylor Swift will take The X Factor stage next Thursday, Nov. 15. As if the show wasn’t star-studded enough!

The appearance will mark her first-ever television performance of “State of Grace,” the latest single off her new album Red. The album sold 1.2 million copies in its opening week, making her the only woman in the SoundScan era to sell over a million copies in a single week on multiple occasions.

'Castle': The team walks into a documentary. But who's the biggest ham of all? -- Exclusive Clip

9 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST

When Castle, Beckett, and Co. walk into a film crew’s documentary in Monday’s episode of Castle, some of the gang are going to ham it up.

Unsurprisingly, Castle seems to lead the pack of attention-seekers in this exclusive clip from the episode, titled “Swan Song.” Also not surprising? Beckett’s unfazed by the camera’s presence. (In fact, she almost seems downright shy!)

“It’s a great chance for our characters to speak straight to camera and break the fourth wall so to speak, and they have a lot of fun with it,” executive producer Andrew Marlowe told EW recently. »

Brooke Burke reveals thyroid cancer -- Video

9 November 2012 6:26 AM, PST

Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke says she has thyroid cancer. Burke posted a video message Thursday on YouTube disclosing her condition and her plans for surgery to remove her thyroid.

The 41-year-old mother of four says a lump on her thyroid was found during a biopsy. She says in the video that the surgery has been scheduled, but she doesn’t specify when. She says it will leave “a nice big scar right here,” tracing a line across her throat.

Although initially shocked by the diagnosis, Burke says she now feels strong and confident and her doctors are optimistic. »

Khloe Kardashian calls One Direction 's--ty,' and 8 other backstage 'surprises' at 'The X Factor'

Warning! Spoilers Follow! After boy band extraordinaire One Direction performed twice inside The X Factor’s Xanadome to promote their new album Take Me Home – and their fans’ piercing screams effectively liquified my eardrums – they happily bounded backstage to speak with the press, along with judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, and Demi Lovato, and co-hosts Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian Odom. Judge L.A. Reid skipped almost all press — though it was unclear whether he was licking his wounds from the loss of contestant Jason Brock or celebrating that his other two contestants Vino Alan and Tate Stevens came in third »
