'Revolution': Boss and Elizabeth Mitchell preview the second half of the season

24 March 2013 10:44 AM, PDT

It’s been four months since NBC’s post-apocalyptic drama Revolution aired a brand new episode. But executive producer Eric Kripke promises the show’s return, which takes place tomorrow, will be worth the wait: “In terms of plot, if the first half of the season was to find Danny, the second half of the season, this war really begins,” he says.

The war, in question, is of course the epic battle brewing between Monroe (David Lyons) — the power-hungry de factor dictator of the Monroe Republic — and, basically, everyone else. On a micro-scale, Monroe has a longstanding feud with his »

'Dexter': First season 8 teaser is here

23 March 2013 1:44 PM, PDT

The first official teaser for the eighth season of Showtime’s Dexter has arrived.

As is typically the case with Dexter teases, there’s no new footage. But it’s an intriguing way of reminding viewers of all the victims of Dex’s Dark Passenger (both directly and indirectly) that may be coming back to haunt him in the show’s home stretch.

Dexter returns June 30 with a slew of guest stars this season, including Charlotte Rampling, Darri Ingolfsson, Bethany Joy Lenz and Sean Patrick Flanery.

Showtime has not confirmed whether this is the final season of Dexter, but CBS Corp. »

Jay Leno's Friday jokes: Knifed in the back by NBC

22 March 2013 7:39 PM, PDT

Jay Leno doubled down on the NBC jokes Friday night.

Instead of just one zinger directed at the broadcast network during his Tonight Show monologue taping, the comedian went for two this time.

The first: “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC too. I was stunned by that.”

And the second: “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? »

'Today' will air interview with Jerry Sandusky

22 March 2013 3:28 PM, PDT

Excerpts from a documentary crew’s interview with disgraced Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky are set to air next week on Today.

According to the AP, the excerpts are part of Sandusky’s interview with a documentary filmmaker, who is working on a film about Joe Paterno. It took place while Sandusky serves out his 30- to 60-year prison sentence after being convicted last summer on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

NBC says Sandusky will “describe what he says happened on the campus, and what he thinks of whistleblower Mike McQueary and late head coach Joe Paterno,” in the excerpts. »

'Vampire Diaries': Daniel Gillies on Elijah's return -- 'He's gonna shock and possibly even horrify'

22 March 2013 11:18 AM, PDT

In next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Elijah is back. “There’s been a lot of talk about what I’m returning for and to do,” Daniel Gillies says. The episode’s synopsis simply states that Elena has a “surprising encounter” with Elijah in Pennsylvania, where she and Rebekah are headed in their search for Katherine and the cure. “All I can say is tune in,” Gillies says, “because Elijah’s gonna shock and possibly even horrify a few. In fact, I’ll say he’s gonna horrify many. But franky, I don’t care. I think what he’s doing is wonderful. »

'Game of Thrones': Jack Gleeson on Joffrey's season 3 romance

22 March 2013 10:05 AM, PDT

Jack Gleeson wants something cleared up.

On HBO’s Game of Thrones, the 20-year-old plays King Joffrey, easily the most despised character on the show. That’s really saying something on a drama with more than two dozen major characters, many of whom with resumes that would easily get them rubber-stamped into the Evil League of Evil. Joffrey is considered worse than the guy who crippled a boy by pushing him out a window (Jaime Lannister) and worse than the guy who killed a couple innocent orphans because he needed small corpses (Theon Greyjoy). Joffrey “wins” because he isn’t just evil. »

Jeanne Cooper: My favorite 'Young and the Restless' episodes -- Exclusive Video

22 March 2013 9:30 AM, PDT

In honor of The Young and the Restless’ 40th anniversary on March 26, EW asked Jeanne Cooper — who, at 84, has been on the CBS soap longer than any of her castmates — to remember how she first came to the daytime drama in 1973 and why she’s still a part of the series today. She also selected some of her favorite episodes, linked below.

“(My agent) said ‘I know you. You won’t like doing it. Even with the stage you don’t like doing it for six months. You will get very bored playing the same person.’ I said you’re right, »

'American Idol' drops again: How low will the ratings go?

22 March 2013 9:20 AM, PDT

When American Idol season 12 premiered lower in the ratings than last year, that was to be expected — returning weaker has been the show’s trend for several years.

When Idol numbers dipped after the show moved from auditions to the Hollywood rounds, that was also to be expected too — the reality veteran’s ratings tend to sag during the middle portion of its run every year.

But Idol is dropping nearly every week and last night was down 50 percent from its Thursday night premiere this season … and that’s scary.

Thursday’s Idol fell another 7 percent down to 11.7 million viewers »

Norman Reedus talks about all the showrunner upheaval on 'The Walking Dead'

22 March 2013 9:00 AM, PDT

Usually when a TV program changes showrunners it is a sign of struggling show making a last ditch effort to gain traction and ratings. Which is what makes the case of The Walking Dead so curious. The show smashed ratings in its first season, and then AMC dismissed the man who smashed those ratings, Frank Darabont. The network promoted Darabont’s number two, Glen Mazzara, to the top spot for the back end of season 2. Mazzara was credited with getting the zombie drama back on track — after what some saw as a creative rut at the start of season 2 — and »

'New Girl': Meet Nick's family! Jess will certainly have to... -- Exclusive Video

22 March 2013 8:07 AM, PDT

New Girl fans have relished putting together the puzzle that is Nick Miller, TV’s most lovable thirtysomething curmudgeon. Back in January, the episode ”A Father’s Love” introduced one piece in the form of Nick’s scamming dad Walt (Dennis Farina). This Tuesday, an unexpected trip to Chicago offers a few more: Nick’s mother Bonnie (Margo Martindale), brother Jamie (Nick Kroll), and cousin Bobby (Bill Burr). The reasons that force Nick and the roommates to visit the Windy City may be dramatic, but the results are nothing short of hilarious.

In an exclusive video, Martindale and Kroll join Jake Johnson, »

New York City makes play to lure 'Tonight Show' back

22 March 2013 7:13 AM, PDT

If New York isn’t trying hard to lure The Tonight Show back to Manhattan, it’s doing a pretty good impression.

A Cuomo administration official said Thursday that New York is trying to lure TV shows from California with a proposed tax credit program and the Tonight show would qualify if it decides to move back to Manhattan. The show moved to Burbank in 1972 when Johnny Carson was host.

But there is no deal with NBC or the Tonight show, and the official wouldn’t say if the state is trying to attract the show. The person wasn’t »

'Veep': Julia Louis-Dreyfus's staffers snap and curse (even more) in deleted scenes -- Exclusive

22 March 2013 6:30 AM, PDT

Forget coffee — this Nsfw video of Veep’s prickly, foul-mouthed characters demanding cappuccinos with “crack sprinkles” and hissing about the “most important piss” their boss has ever taken should be the only energy boost you need. The first season of HBO’s caustic political comedy hits DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday; beyond even more deleted scenes, the release features a few shorts starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s hapless vice president, a making-of documentary, and commentary from creator Armando Iannucci and Louis-Dreyfus, among others.

If you still haven’t caught the series that won the Seinfeld alum her latest Emmy — for shame! »

'The Voice': This auditioner is sexy, and he knows it -- Exclusive

22 March 2013 6:00 AM, PDT

A wannabe singer transforming a beloved pop song into a moody, acoustic ballad? Been there, done that. What Voice season 4 auditioner Christian Porter does to Lmfao’s “Sexy and I Know It,” though, is something different altogether. The only thing this cover shares with the original is its lyrics; otherwise, Porter’s take on “Sexy” is a bluesy, falsetto-tinged jam that seems tailor made to go viral. (For good reason: As commenters have pointed out, the performance seems to have been inspired by Noah Guthrie’s own acoustic “Sexy and I Know It.”) Prompting three of the competition’s four »

NBC's Jay Leno plan has some insiders baffled

21 March 2013 7:10 PM, PDT

Reports that NBC is quietly planning to dump top-rated Jay Leno has some Hollywood insiders baffled.

Though NBC hasn’t officially announced any changes to its late-night lineup, multiple media outlets and sources suggest the network intends to replace the longtime Tonight Show host with Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon by the end of next year. One common reaction among some broadcast and late-night veterans goes like this: NBC is the lowest-rated major broadcast network, yet Leno is the No. 1 late-night host. Fallon is currently averaging two-thirds of Leno’s 18-49 rating and half his viewership. Dumping Leno — especially within »

Jay Leno jokes about being booted from NBC

21 March 2013 7:09 PM, PDT

Jay Leno is shifting his target in his latest joke about the the dramatic recent Tonight Show transition headlines. Instead of poking fun at NBC’s ratings like the late-night host has done earlier this week, on Thursday night he took a shot at his own perilous position at the network.

“Are you all excited about March Madness?” he asked the Tonight audience at the taping earlier today. “Are you all into March Madness? People are talking about who’s in, who’s out, who’s gonna be eliminated. And that’s just here at NBC. I’ve never been in the paper this much. »

'Low Winter Sun': Watch the trailer for AMC's new cop drama

21 March 2013 4:17 PM, PDT

Take The Shield, add two tablespoons of CBS cop shows, a pinch of Lennie James, and bake for 30 mins at AMC-Fahrenheit and you have Low Winter Sun, the new police drama that looks to bring a little law enforcement to the network that currently keeps our attention with zombies and Mad Men.

Based on a British miniseries, the show follows the story of a morally questionable cop, Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty), whose bad deeds catapult him into a much darker existence. James plays the main character’s partner in crime — in more ways than one.

ABC summer schedule: Here's when Desiree Hartsock's 'Bachelorette' airs

21 March 2013 2:42 PM, PDT

ABC wasn’t fooling — Bachelor Pad didn’t make the cut despite our plea — but here’s the rest of the network’s summer lineup.

ABC’s schedule includes the return of The Bachelorette (with Desiree Hartsock in the driver’s seat), the series premiere of the Alyssa Milano soap Mistresses (which was originally intended for this season, then was pushed until summer — so does that mean it’s worse than Zero Hour?), plus new crime drama Motive (a crime drama that starts each episode by revealing the killer’s identity) and new reality effort Whodunnit? (a mystery competition show). Here’s the plan:
