Boyish enthusiasm shines in 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls' premiere

3 hours ago

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive in the wild. He’s proven that. But can he teach celebrities how to do the same? That’s the fun of Grylls’ newest series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, in which Grylls takes celebrities into the wild for 48-hour adventures, where they’ll jump out of helicopters, eat worms, and, if they’re Zac Efron, rappel down a waterfall.

In the premiere of Running Wild, Bear picked up Zac Efron for a two-day journey through the Catskills that could not have been more adorable if they had tried. Zac, a lifelong »

Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

10 hours ago

Update: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy’s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode. »

Watch Rob Lowe's delightfully bonkers Shark Week promo

10 hours ago

You thought this guy was the King of Summer? Nope.

Clearly, only one man is truly awesome (and crazy) enough to trek across the ocean atop two great whites, nonchalantly tossing chum in the air as a hot mermaid hitches a ride by his side. That man’s name: Rob Lowe, erstwhile Parks and Rec star, once and future Lifetime luminary, and all-around swell guy. He isn’t appearing in any Discovery specials this year as part of the network’s annual Shark Week—but he is doing some splendidly ridiculous stuff in this exclusive promo.

Oh, you want to »

11 hours ago

This post contains plot details of “Karma,” the True Blood episode that aired on July 27. Read our full recap here.

 

The writer/director of Sunday’s installment of True Blood, Angela Robinson, took EW inside the big Sarah Newlin reveal and her personal inspiration for Bill’s legal consultation.

What was the genesis of the idea that Sarah Newlin would be the antidote to Hep-v?

We really wanted to bring Anna Camp back, and Sarah Newlin was still out there. We didn’t really want to create a whole new Big Bad for this season. Instead of having the story spiral out, »

Sarah Palin is going rogue with her own online news channel

12 hours ago

After spending years criticizing supposed failures of the liberal media, Sarah Palin has decided to take matters into her own hands. On Sunday night, the former Republican vice presidential candidate announced the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based news website where Palin promises to “talk directly to you” without a need to “please the powers that be.”

The channel already includes video takes on Vladimir Putin (so you will be able to see Russia from Palin’s media coverage), special education in schools, and a quote of the day (today’s is from Thomas Paine). There’s a running tally of »

'Sleepy Hollow' producer previews new monsters, gives season 2 scoop

13 hours ago

War is coming to Sleepy Hollow. And he bought a new outfit for the occasion.

As you’ll see from the following exclusive sketches, Fox’s delightfully insane supernatural drama is planning a second season that’ll be bigger (18 episodes, as opposed to last year’s 13), badder, and most definitely more terrifying. EW chatted with Sleepy executive producer Roberto Orci about some of the beasts who’ll be spooking Ichabod and Abbie this year—including a beefed-up Moloch, a creepy take on the Pied Piper, and a mysterious being known as the Kindred—as well as some burning questions about the season more generally. »

Enough, already: Why I'm quitting 'The Leftovers'

27 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

That’s it. I quit. No more.

For weeks, I’ve stuck it out with The Leftovers, which many critics (including me) have described as one of the bleakest, most brutal, most depressing dramas on television. But it wasn’t until Sunday’s episode, “Gladys,” that I decided I’d had enough. I refuse to watch another minute of this show.

It wasn’t just that a woman (the Gladys of the title, played by Marceline Hugot) got stoned to death in the episode. I’ve seen worse on my all-time favorite show, Breaking Bad. What I objected to wasn’t the violence. »
