'Arrow' post mortem: Boss opens up about the shocking [spoiler]!

3 hours ago

Warning: This post contains major Arrow spoilers.

Shocked? Stunned? Heartbroken? Join the club.

The 20th episode of Arrow’s second season dealt a huge personal blow to the hooded hero — one that’s going to affect him and those around him forever. I guess what we’re saying is…

Rip Moira Queen.

Yes, the mayoral candidate/mom to the hero who walks among us and his sister from another mister, has been killed. Specifically, Slade Wilson stuck a blade through her chest in an ultra-emotional scene that played out in front of her children. Will they ever recover? Probably not. »

8 hours ago

The mother has a voice: Meg Ryan has been cast as the narrator for CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spin-off.

She’ll supply the voice of “future Sally” (played during the series in flashback by Greta Gerwig), the same way Bob Saget supplied the voice for future Ted in Himym. Like Saget, her character will never be seen.

'Arrow' Ep on Roy's big episode, how Summer Glau became Ravager

11 hours ago

Roy Harper is going to find himself spinning out of control in a way we have never seen on Arrow.

It’s been a long time coming, though. In the last few episodes, the Mirakuru’d lone wolf has put considerable effort into keeping himself in check as the anger-stirring serum courses through his veins. Wednesday night’s episode marks a major milestone in Roy’s evolution into Rage Roy, a path that has been anything but easy to craft, Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “That’s probably been one of the hardest things in the writers room to »

The CW ratings: 'Supernatural' up, 'Originals' down

11 hours ago

Supernatural is like the cockroach of The CW — in a totally good way! No matter what happens on the network’s schedule, the nine-year-old Supernatural tends to perform pretty well, it’s a total survivor.

Laura Prepon on Alex Vause's extended stay on 'Orange Is the New Black'- Exclusive

12 hours ago

Despite rumors to the contrary, Laura Prepon isn’t trying to cut her sentence at Litchfield Penitentiary short. As Piper’s sometimes-enemy and forbidden love interest, Prepon’s character Alex Vause was vital to the first season of Orange Is the New Black. So when reports swirled last year that Prepon would only appear in a single episode of the second season, fans started speculating as to why. One popular theory was that Prepon, as a scientologist, was quitting because the church objected to her playing a lesbian on TV.

“It’s ridiculous because it’s not true. I’m »

'Orange Is the New Black': Watch the first scene from season 2 -- Exclusive Video

12 hours ago

Things are getting bleak on Orange Is the New Black — although the first season wasn’t exactly a bright, sunny bit of comedy to begin with.

Series creator Jenji Kohan reveals in this week’s cover story that the show’s second season will feature a darker, more fractured approach to the ladies of Litchfield, who were a little too buddy-buddy with each other last year. “We needed a little more drama,” says Kohan, and that’s exactly what’s in store for the inmates as the prison power dynamic shifts at Litchfield thanks to new faces and new alliances. »

22 April 2014 6:13 PM, PDT

The CW is edging closer to deciding the fate of its six bubble shows. As we’ve previously reported earlier this month in Death Watch, Hart of Dixie and The 100 are likely to be renewed, while The Carrie Diaries is likely to be cancelled. It’s the other three remaining limbo dramas — Beauty and the Beast, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed — that have been the biggest question marks.

We’re now hearing freshman sci-fi shows Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed are now looking less likely to return. Yet sophomore series Beauty and the Beast is still up in the air — on »

Colbert shows Letterman his real personality on 'Late Show'

22 April 2014 4:54 PM, PDT

We’re used to seeing Stephen Colbert in-character on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, looking supremely confident as a right-wing master of the media universe. But Colbert came across a bit more humble during an appearance on CBS’ The Late Show on Tuesday night. It was Colbert’s first appearance on the show since landing the much-coveted gig to take over as Late Show host.

“I’m going to do whatever you have done,” Colbert told David Letterman, who will retire as the longest-serving late-night host next year. “It seems to have gone pretty well, Dave.”
