Ryan Hansen talks playing himself in 'Play It Again, Dick'

16 minutes ago

The latest chapter in the world of Veronica Mars, Play It Again, Dick, does not focus on Veronica’s crime solving abilities, nor is it about her pals and enemies in Neptune, Calif. No, the web series Play It Again, Dick, which premiered this week on CW Seed, focuses on the antics of Ryan Hansen, one of the show’s real-life actors. The Ryan Hansen on screen, however, is not really Ryan Hansen, instead it’s a version of Ryan Hansen invented by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, back as creator and executive producer of Play It Again, Dick.

ABC orders game show '500 Questions' from Mark Burnett, Mike Darnell

2 hours ago

This newly announced event game show on ABC sounds a bit tough—and more than a little mysterious.

ABC has made a direct-to-series order for 500 Questions, a new event game show from executive producer Mark Burnett and Warner Bros. unscripted and alternative television president President Mike Darnell. Burnett and Darnell previously worked together on Fox’s Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

Details about the show are scarce, but according to the press release, the show will feature “contestants in a pressure-packed, incredibly intense environment.” Hopefully, it won’t be as much pressure as it will be for the contestants on Sex Box. »

3 hours ago

Grey’s Anatomy fans may not have to wait long to see Grey Sloan implode over the news that another one of Meredith’s half-sisters is working there.

The upcoming season’s second outing is actually a Maggie-centric episode, in which the new doc—the progeny of Richard Webber and Ellis Grey, who gave her up for adoption—attempts to make a good impression at work, but gets caught in some unfortunate circumstances.

3 hours ago

Beast Mode Cowboy will have to take his act to the jury house as 26-year-old Caleb Reynolds was voted out of Big Brother last night. He was ultimately done in by his alliance partners Cody and Derrick, who got rid of Caleb to keep the much more beatable Victoria in the final three. We were able to ask Caleb a few questions en route to his new digs and here’s what he had to say about his ouster, whom he blames, and how he would have done had he made the finals.

Entertainment Weekly: How shocked were you when Cody voted you out? »

The Riddler on 'Gotham' villain theories and going green

4 hours ago

The first season of Fox’s ambitious new comic-book drama Gotham is all about the Penguin’s rise to power, but there’s another would-be villain lurking in the shadows. Cory Michael Smith plays Ed Nygma, the man who will become Gotham City’s quiz-happy Riddler… eventually.

For now, Ed’s a forensic scientist working with Gotham Pd, which adds a twist of intrigue to his inevitable transformation into villainy. On the show’s Brooklyn set, EW sat down with Smith to get a hint of what we can expect from his Riddler.

Pharrell is part Yoda and five other tidbits about 'The Voice'

The Voice launches its seventh season next week, with Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams joining the well-established buddy comedy that is Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. At a press luncheon for the show earlier this month, the coaches and host Carson Daly—minus Williams—discussed the new group’s dynamic and how Levine and Shelton welcomed the two newcomers into the fold. (Levine claimed to be nice; Shelton said “I’m going to beat you.”) Stefani also revealed she has a great description of Williams up her well-tailored sleeve.

'The Walking Dead' star Danai Gurira wigs out

5 hours ago

Michonne looks like a badass. And a good part of that badassery is due to her hair — those flowing dreadlocks that whip around as she is slicing and dicing zombies left and right. But it’s not real. I’m not talking about the zombies — which are, of course, totally 100% real — but rather the hair. It’s actually a wig worn by actress Dania Gurira to achieve maximum Michonne.

We asked Gurira what she loves and hates the most about the wig, and you can now see her full response in the video player below. On the positive side, Gurira »

'Red Band Society' gets sickly ratings

6 hours ago

Fox’s earnest teen hospital drama got off to a weak start in the ratings Wednesday night, while NBC’s preview of Debra Messing’s cop dramedy delivered a healthy sampling.

The Steven Spielberg-produced Red Band Society had only 4 million viewers and an anemic 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 at 9 p.m., slipping a tad from its Hell’s Kitchen lead-in. Red Band Society follows a group of teens who cheerfully endure various medical hardships and live in a pediatric hospital ward run by tough-love nurse (Octavia Spencer). Industry insiders have been skeptical that the concept would be a reliable draw, »

'Big Brother' host Julie Chen on 'shocked, embarrassed, confused' Caleb

7 hours ago

Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

Entertainment Weekly: Well, a very different exit this time around as opposed to the one the night before with Frankie. What did you sense with Caleb when he walked out —  just utter shock?

I think he was shocked and embarrassed and confused. But I think the thunderous applause took over and he was enjoying the attention. Good for him. I am sure he was hurt and felt played. 

Caleb did so well in challenges but was also so easily manipulated. »

8 hours ago

Darrell Hammond, who holds the title of longest-tenured cast member in Saturday Night Live history, has a new gig at Studio 8H: Hammond is replacing legendary announcer Don Pardo as the show’s announcer. Pardo died in August at the age of 96. 

Hammond, a cast member from 1995 to 2009, was a natural choice for the job, having previously stepped in for Pardo when the announcer was out due to his health. “I sat in for Don when he had laryngitis several times over the years,” Hammond told USA Today. “He was a lovely person.

If Hollywood insiders had to bet on one new show delivering a big premiere rating this fall, they would put their money on Fox’s Gotham.

With two dozen new broadcast series helping kick off 2014-15 season, networks are quietly attempting to calculate which shows will become the next hit and which will die on the vine. Their confidential predictive tracking data, shared by the Big 5 broadcasters, »
