[Spoiler Alert If You Don't Want Know Details About The Season Finale Of American Horror Story: Asylum]

EW was lucky enough to have screened next week’s season finale of American Horror Story: Asylum and can reveal that it will go down as one of the best episodes of the mini-series’ second run, if not The Best. An epic, cinematic climax that packs a real emotional wallop, “Madness Ends” gives viewers a glimpse at the fates of Ahs: Asylum’s three leads: Lana (Sarah Paulson), Kit (Evan Peters), and Jude (Jessica Lange). All three actors are phenomenal, with Paulson in particular delivering a stellar performance that spans nearly 40 years and truly establishes Lana Winters as the heart of Ahs: Asylum. »

Check out Netflix's new 'Arrested Development' easter egg

17 January 2013 2:47 PM, PST

Netflix is getting creative with its advertising for the galactically-anticipated re-debut of Arrested Development. Right now, if you search for something “blue” on the Netflix website — either just typing “blue,” or perhaps specifically looking for something with the word in the title, like Blue Velvet or Return to the Blue Lagoon or Mickey Blue Eyes — you’ll note errant bits of blue paint along the side, along with a telltale blue handprint. Clip on the image below for a look:

If you click on the handprint, the infamous “I just blue myself” scene from Arrested Development will play. No word »

'American Idol' judges feud to intensify

17 January 2013 12:03 PM, PST

If you thought Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj bickered last night, just wait.

The diva combativeness on Fox’s American Idol will intensify during tonight’s second episode. “People said the passion between the two girls was invented,” Fox’s reality chief Mike Darnell tells EW. “It’s obviously real. That’s an interesting dynamic that we haven’t seen on one of these shows before.” In fact, the panel drama “ramps up” for all the judges, he says, not just Carey vs. Minaj. “All I can say is that tonight things get even more interesting.”

Ousted 'Top Chef' contestant on her shocking elimination

17 January 2013 11:15 AM, PST

Spoiler Alert: Don’t keep reading unless you want to know who was eliminated from Top Chef last night.

Restaurant Wars is one of Top Chef’s signature challenges. It’s been known to topple great chef-testants, but this year’s casualty was especially shocking. No one expected Kristen Kish, the young sous chef from Michigan, to pack her knives and go so early. As the leader of the losing restaurant theme Atelier Kwan, she was the most vulnerable, but you’d think her past wins and status as front-runner to win the whole thing would put her through over Josie Smith-Malave, »

17 January 2013 9:26 AM, PST

Tonight, Suits returns to USA (10 p.m. Et) with the first of six new episodes. The last we saw of brilliant-but-fake associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), he was grieving the loss of his beloved Grammy, and he’d rallied to help top closer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and managing partner Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) oust Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) from the law firm Pearson Hardman. But he was making a string of bad choices in his personal life including smoking pot again, and sleeping with his married ex Tess (Elisabeth Hower). His will-they-or-won’t-they love interest Rachel (Meghan Markle), the firm’s top paralegal, »

'Survivor: Caramoan': Returning Favorite Corinne says 'I think I'm amazing'

17 January 2013 9:01 AM, PST

She’s been called one of the show’s biggest villains ever by host Jeff Probst, but Corinne Kaplan did not do anything devious in the game to earn that distinction when she appeared on Survivor: Gabon. She did not backstab or betray anyone in her alliance. What she did do, however, was talk nasty to and about people she did not like, especially her arch nemesis, Sugar. So as Corinne returns to play Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs Favorites, it will be interesting to see if her tribemates respond to her loyalty or recoil from her negativity. (John »

'American Idol' premiere ratings down: 'NCIS' scored more viewers

17 January 2013 8:12 AM, PST

The only real question was: By how much?

Fox’s American Idol returned Wednesday night to its lowest-rated and least-watched regular-season premiere telecast ever (the first season aired during the summer and generally isn’t counted). Idol delivered 17.9 million viewers and a 6.0 adults 18-49 demo rating. That’s down 19 percent from last year’s opener, which was the previous lowest-ever record-holder.

The numbers also mean last night’s Idol premiere will not be the most-watched entertainment show this week — Tuesday’s NCIS had 22.9 million viewers. This is the first time another series was seen by more viewers than Idol during its regular season premiere week. »

'The Bachelor' deleted scene: Sean and Desiree critique terrible art -- Exclusive Video

17 January 2013 6:54 AM, PST

This week, in perhaps the most bizarre dates in Bachelor history, Sean took Desiree the bridal stylist to a fake art gallery as part of an elaborate, but not particularly successful, practical joke. While many of you commenting on my recap wondered if Desiree was in on the joke the whole time, this deleted scene from Monday’s episode indicates — to me at least — that Desiree believed she was in a real art gallery… filled with really terrible art. Click through to watch Sean and Desiree peruse and appraise the awful portraits and sculptures.
