29 minutes ago

There's just one work day left before we find out out who the 25th winners of The Amazing Race will be. You can't always count on the most deserving team to take the crown, or for taxi drama and karma to line up exactly the way you want them to. But there is one winner you can count on to pull through on every single season of the rrrrace around the world: the show's faithful host, Phil Keoghan. Phil has been there for it all, and though his distressed leather jackets have changed from year to year, his enthusiasm for »

'Covert Affairs' creators talk that season 5 finale ending

10 hours ago

Spoiler alert: The Covert Affairs season 5 finale, "Gold Soundz," brought about big changes for Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Chris Gorham). After almost being killed, again, the latter decided he wants to leave the agency and travel the world with Natasha (Liane Balaban). If/when the show gets an order for a sixth season, would Auggie be in it? "Oh, he'll be in it," co-creator Matt Corman assures us. "It's a slightly different dynamic for him at the outset. I think for now he's trying this, trying something different. It's interesting, he's been so defined by his job. He has »

Best of 2014: How the May vs. May fight on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' came together

19 hours ago

One of the most talked about (and gif'd about) moments of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. occurred early this season, when Ming-Na Wen's Agent May ended up in a fight with her own doppelganger (a.k.a. a brainwashed Hydra agent). The scene was a beautifully choreographed dance of stunt work that, like most sequences on the show, looked effortless—but in reality, took a village to pull off. "There was one solid 16 hour day, but there were also two half day and quarter days," explained stunt performer Samantha Jo of the resulting two minute sequence. "So it really spanned over 3 full days. »

While Covert Affairs fans await word on whether USA will renew the globe-trotting drama, the intense fifth season comes to a close Thursday as Annie (Piper Perabo) and McQuaid (Nic Bishop) try to get villain-turned-potential asset Belenko (Shawn Doyle) out of Argentina. "It's a classic Covert Affairs episode in that there's high stakes, we're abroad, they're operating without a net, and they're up against a tremendously savvy adversary," co-creator Matt Corman says, referring to the Russian Vega assassins who want Belenko dead. As co-creator Chris Ord explains, "If anything, the bar is higher than last season when Annie's goal was to kill Henry. »

'Survivor': Why that 'wicked stepmother' speech enraged me

20 hours ago

Last night, three women made it to the final three on Survivor for the first time in five seasons—and Natalie Anderson, who was clearly the best player, won. (Read Dalton Ross's recap here.) You'd think that might be a victory for Survivor fans who like to see smart, tough women triumph. Right? But toward the end of the season finale, something happened that so enraged me, I wanted to snuff out my own torch and use it to stab my TV. Finalist Missy Payne was attacked, very personally and nastily, for acting in a way that's supposedly unbecoming for a mother. »

Remembering Stephen Colbert's 6 most awkward in-character interviews

20 hours ago

When Jennifer 8 Lee was prepping for her 2008 interview on The Colbert Report, she didn't know what to expect. A friend who wrote for The Daily Show gave the author some good advice: Don't try to out-funny Stephen Colbert; "just be calm and roll with the weirdness." Over the past nine years, Colbert—in character as a fact-free conservative pundit—has commanded a powerful perch at his round interview table, keeping guests off kilter four nights a week. In especially brilliant moments, he has asked tougher questions than real journalists. After all, Colbert's the guy who asked Robert F. Kennedy Jr. »

'Fargo': Season 2 scoop and premiere script page -- exclusive

22 hours ago

Fargo is going back in time to 1979 for season two, and EW has a first-look at a page from the season premiere script. Expect another snow-swept rural crime drama loosely inspired by the Coen brothers' film, only this time the action is set in Luverne, Minnesota, where humble married couple Peggy and Ed Blomquist (Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons) find themselves caught in an escalating war between a local crime gang and a major Mob syndicate. (A character in season one cryptically described the 1979 case as “savagery, pure and simple," with a massive pileup of bodies.) "The scope of the »

Jon Stewart talks 'The Nightly Show,' Larry Wilmore, and giving a voice to underdogs

22 hours ago

In EW's Forecast issue, we profile Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore, who's helming Comedy Central's newest late-night series. The show premieres after The Daily Show on January 19—which happens to be Martin Luther King Day. (Wilmore told EW that he already has his first joke: "Yeah, I gotta work. I know!") It's Jon Stewart, though, who actually came up with the concept for the show, with Wilmore in mind to host. "He pitched the idea of a show that would give a platform to underrepresented points of view and underrepresented voices, whether that's African-Americans, women, first-generation Americans, any group that's underrepresented, »

17 December 2014 11:01 PM, PST

[Spoiler Alert If You Haven't Seen The Latest Installment Of American Horror Story: Freak Show.] The most recent episode of FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show marked a homecoming of sorts for Lily Rabe.

The twists and turns of Ascension’s three-night mini-series flight landed the earthbound space ark’s most Right Stuffy space hero and the story itself in a mysterious place strewn with wreckage and reminders of other stories. And more mystery! In the final minutes of part three, we learned that Dr. Harris Enzmann (Gil Bellows) was using the decades-long psych experiment started by his father to trigger “punctuated” evolution and produce a next-gen X-Man—a “star child”—possessed with “morphic resonance” (i.e., telepathy, telekinesis, super-powers) capable of manipulating the vast energies located within the nuclear powered “Panopticon” to do even more amazing things, »

17 December 2014 2:48 PM, PST

Ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White earned gold in Sochi, so we'll say the second best performance delivered by U.S. figure skaters at the 2014 Winter Olympics was Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, who joined play-by-play announcer Terry Gannon in the booth. The trio have since been named NBC Sports Group's new lead figure skating broadcast team, which means they'll be calling the action through the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

HBO: We're not releasing overnight ratings anymore

17 December 2014 1:37 PM, PST

HBO isn't going to reveal how many subscribers watched its shows anymore -- at least, not right away. The premium network just announced that starting Jan. 1, its press office would no longer distribute next-day ratings for its series. The move follows a similar decision by FX, which earlier this year likewise stopped releasing "live plus same day" ratings, numbers that only account for a episode's first night of viewership. »

Darlene Love talks singing 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' on 'Letterman' -- for the last time

17 December 2014 1:36 PM, PST

David Letterman's reign as host of The Late Show ends in May 2015—and Friday marks his last holiday broadcast. Which means the episode will also be the last one to feature Darlene Love singing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Love first performed the song on Letterman's show in 1986, when he was still hosting Late Night on NBC. 28 years later, the tradition is still going strong...until the end of the week, at least. In advance of the performance, EW talks to the vocalist about the origins of the tradition, the end of an era, and why the song won't be leaving TV for good. »

Broadcast ratings update: What's a hit, what's not

17 December 2014 9:49 AM, PST

Big picture first: Fall was lousy for broadcast. Not one of the five major networks posted ratings gains, and three declined from last year (chart below). NBC ranked first once again, but the network was down 9 percent overall among adults 18-49. CBS was down 7 percent. And Fox dropped a wince-inducing 16 percent. (Slotting three hours of Utopia didn't help.) Only ABC and The CW managed to break even, with The CW also posting a 10 percent gain among total viewers. Among individual shows, returning hits like CBS' Big Bang Theory, ABC's Scandal and Modern Family, and NBC's The Blacklist and The Voice continued to top the chart. »
