'Fargo' premiere: Martin Freeman talks That scene

2 hours ago

(This story features Martin Freeman talking about Tuesday’s episode of Fargo. Spoilers below!)

Aw, jeez — we didn’t see that coming.

Yes, Martin Freeman’s mild-mannered Lester Nygaard was in the middle of one very bad day when we met him in Fargo’s premiere. And encountering a dangerous drifter like Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) — while you’re in the hospital, thanks to your old high-school bully — would be enough to put anyone on edge. But even when Lester’s wife seethed, “You’re not a man, Lester. You’re not even half a man,” we didn’t think he’d kill her. »

Kevin Williamson looks back at the 'Dawson's Creek' series finale: The art of saying goodbye

5 hours ago

For Entertainment Weekly’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic TV shows to learn how they crafted their series finales. No one’s story was quite like Dawson’s Creek creator Kevin Williamson’s. He’d stepped away from the drama, which was originally set to end with the season 6 episode “Joey Potter and Capeside Redemption,” which sent Joey (Katie Holmes) off to Paris. But then the network had an idea: “Warner Bros. called Greg Berlanti up knowing we were friends and said, ‘See if you can talk Kevin into doing the finale. »

Stephen Colbert gives first interview to David Letterman

9 hours ago

Stephen Colbert will begin transitioning into his new role as CBS’ upcoming Late Show host next week. The appointed Late Show heir will give his first interview since accepting the job to — who else? David Letterman.

David Letterman will interview Colbert on the Late Show on Tuesday, April 22.

Last week, CBS announced the Colbert Report host will succeed Letterman when the veteran host retires after 21 years on the show. Though a widely-praised choice for the gig, there remains some question as to what Colbert will be like as a host after shedding his conservative Comedy Central character. Though he’s »

'The Mindy Project': Inside the breakup scene that left you in shambles -- Exclusive Photos

11 hours ago

Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.

“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”

'River Monsters' on EW Radio: How people can fish (and possibly lose an arm)

11 hours ago

The whole point of River Monsters — one of the highest-rated shows on Animal Planet — is to show what evil can lurk in some of the world’s most dark and mysterious waterways. But it also focuses light on what makes river fishing so exciting for many thrill-seeking anglers.

On tonight’s edition of Inside TV on EW Radio, the executive producer of River Monsters will talk about the dangerous practice of noodling, a type of fishing that involves reaching one’s hand into holes where catfish lay their eggs. The goal is to nab the little bugger — but sometimes, a tug-of-war may ensue. »

'Friends with Better Lives' could use better ratings

11 hours ago

Friends with Better Lives is the latest sitcom vying for a semi-permanent slot in the CBS Monday night block now that How I Met Your Mother has departed, but so far, it’s not impressing in the ratings.

The second episode last night of the new show starring James Van Der Beek and Brooklyn Decker was down 31 percent from its premiere preview two weeks ago. Meanwhile, CBS’ fellow freshman Mom finished up its first season run with an equally modest number. The network also tried shifting 2 Broke Girls to 8 p.m. to try kick starting the night in the old Himym slot, »

11 hours ago

Witchcraft. Wild accusations. Shane West’s wig.

There’s a lot to look at in the following new trailer for Wgn America’s first original series Salem, a new scripted show set against the backdrop of 17th-century Massachusetts’s infamous witch trials. The twist: In this version of the story, the witches are real. (Think Hocus Pocus, but not actually anything like Hocus Pocus.)

West stars as John Alden, a soldier who returns home only to find his village whipped into a witch-hunting frenzy. He also happens to be an old flame of Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) — a member of Salem’s elite who, »

Billy Bob Thornton talks 'Fargo,' 'Entourage,' and why he'll never direct again

13 hours ago

Billy Bob Thornton has played some devilish characters, but never one as frightening and fascinating as Fargo’s Lorne Malvo. Malvo is a mysterious grim reaper of sorts who lives by a strict code of malevolence — one that has a way of rubbing off on the innocent souls around him. In the premiere of FX’s new series, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. Et, a chance encounter with pathetic pushover Lester Nygaard (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) leads to some very bad things in the small town of Bemidji, Minn.

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany on what she can do even better in season 2

14 hours ago

When Tatiana Maslany reported to duty for season 1 of Orphan Black, she didn’t know if anyone would even take notice. After all, it was a new show from Canada airing on a channel (BBC America) that had only recently jumped into the original programming game. She could only guess what the reaction would be as she filmed that first season. That was certainly not the case when the cast and crew reunited for filming on season 2 (which premieres April 19). Rapturous reviews and a devoted #CloneClub let them know that there was indeed an audience following their every move. So »
