11 late-period 'Simpsons' episodes you should watch this week

5 hours ago

When the “Every Simpsons Ever” mega-marathon of The Simpsons began last Thursday on Fxx, it renewed interest in a show that will go down as one of the all-time greats—but has nevertheless been struggling commercially and creatively for awhile at this point. The show’s unimpeachable heyday in the ’90s is rightfully heralded, and as the marathon got going, it was those episodes that created the most excitement. Sure, they’ve been out on DVD for some time, but rebroadcasting them in order emphasized how great the show was at its peak.

'True Blood' star Kristin Bauer van Straten returning to 'Once Upon a Time' for major arc

8 hours ago

Kristin Bauer van Straten has booked a return trip to Once Upon a Time.

EW has learned exclusively that the True Blood alum will reprise her dastardly role as villain Maleficent during the second half of Once’s upcoming season.

Could this mean that Maleficent will be season 4’s other big villain after the Frozen storyline? It’s unclear as of now, but Bauer will be back as a recurring guest star for a big arc, so here’s hoping this means the show will dive more into her past, as well as Aurora’s history.

New 'Sons of Anarchy' photos are appropriately unsettling

11 hours ago

Two weeks from today, Sons of Anarchy’s final ride begins. We’ve already seen a shot of Charlie Hunnam and Marilyn Manson in the Sept. 9 season premiere; now FX has released more images. Above, a not-at-all awkward shot of Jax (Hunnam) with Gemma (Katey Sagal), the mother he doesn’t know killed his wife, and Wendy (Drea de Matteo), his ex who checks herself out of rehab early and wants to help out with the boys.

Of course, that encounter is still preferable to the one Jax has at the start of the season premiere when he’s being held in jail. »

Barry Allen speeds through spoiler-filled 'Flash' poster

12 hours ago

The Flash is about to make his mark.

The CW debuted a new poster for the debut of The Flash, which stars Grant Gustin as scientist-turned-superhero Barry Allen, who is granted the power of super-speed after a freak accident. However, the Central City resident appears to be zipping through Arrow’s Starling City in the poster, as evidenced by the Queen Consolidated building in the background and Big Belly Burger on the right—which are just a few of the Easter eggs. Can you spot them all?

The network also released key art for Jane the Virgin, which stars Gina Rodriguez »

Anarchy reigns in new trailer for E!'s 'The Royals'

13 hours ago

E!’s first ever scripted drama series, The Royals, follows Elizabeth Hurley’s Queen Helena as she does her very best to protect her royal family’s image. But as can be seen in the series’ first official trailer, this is one monarchy that can’t quite stay out of the tabloids.

With a daughter who’s making bad wardrobe choices and a son who’s making bad life choices, Queen Helena has her hands full in the new series from One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn. Somehow, Joan Collins will also fit into the mix.

Sarah Paulson will be pulling double duty on American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The upcoming season takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, where the arrival of a troupe of circus performers coincides with the emergence of a dark entity that threatens the lives of freaks and normal residents alike.

Did Arie Luyendyk, Jr. just reveal the new Bachelor?

14 hours ago

Sorry, future Bachelor contestants: Arie Luyendyk, Jr. will not be next season’s star.

The season eight Bachelorette contestant was rumored to be the title Bachelor next season, but Luyendyk refuted those rumors Monday when he tweeted, “I’m not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people.” The farm reference makes a strong case that Chris Soules, who failed to receive Andi Dorfman’s final rose last season of The Bachelorette and was known for his occupation as a farmer, will be the next Bachelor.

'Pretty Little Liars' boss teases Ali's 'bold move' and a fatal finale

14 hours ago

Last year, the Pretty Little Liars summer finale shocked fans when the camera panned around to reveal that Ezra was the man in the black hoodie and potentially the leader of the “A” team. As we now know, that was all a cover-up—Ezra was merely an author trying to solve a mystery and write a best-selling book—but in the moment, the idea that the beloved Mr. Fitz could be evil was heartbreaking. So heading into tonight’s summer finale, which is being labeled the “fatal finale,” fans are on edge for whatever twist showrunner Marlene King has in store. »

Aaron Paul on a huge Emmy night for 'Breaking Bad': 'We were so stunned'

15 hours ago

Breaking Bad drove out of the Emmys and into the night with plenty of trophies in tow: The critically adored drug drama won five awards for the second half of its fifth and final season, including acting statues for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Anna Gunn, as well as the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy for the second year in a row. “It’s an embarrassment of riches, being involved in something as special as Breaking Bad,” says Paul, who claimed his third Supporting Actor trophy for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman, Walter White’s soul-gutted meth-making partner-turned-adversary. “This is probably »

Emmys: Jeff Jensen and Melissa Maerz on a show that made TV seem small

15 hours ago

Jeff Jensen: Melissa, for all the self-serving yet correct talk about how expansive and diverse and ambitious television has become over the past few years, the Emmys made TV seem rather small last night.

Maybe I lost my sense of humor over the summer (too much Rectify and Ferguson, I guess), but Seth Meyers didn’t work for me. The Late Night comedian—at his best when seated behind a desk, gleefully reading his sharp, tart jokes and engaging guests with smart chat—kept the show flowing and didn’t fumble. He was an effective game manager, but nothing more. »

Vma ratings drop: Bring back the twerking bears

16 hours ago

Nicki couldn’t deliver Miley numbers: MTV’s Video Music Awards dropped sharply in the ratings Sunday night.

According to Nielsen, the annual awards telecast had 8.3 million viewers—that’s down about 18 percent from last year. Across all simulcasts on MTV, MTV2, VH1, and Logo TV, and including all repeats, viewers totaled 13.7 million. The show racked up 12.6 million tweets—so, yes, more tweets than viewers.

The telecast was, by Vma standards, surprisingly shock free. Even Nicki Minaj’s much-buzzed performance of “Anaconda” was relatively tame, especially compared to last year’s infamous Miley Cyrus twerk-n-tongue fest. (Cyrus tearfully giving a »

Early Emmy ratings down, yet second-best in years

16 hours ago

It was the first Monday night Emmys in 38 years. Will it be another 38 years before a network does it again?

In the early numbers, the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were down about 10 percent from last year. Though more accurate live-adjusted ratings are still to come (which could boost matters slightly), the show’s performance is expected to remain below last year’s Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show.

The Emmys received a 10.9 household rating from 8 to 11 p.m. Et in the 56 top markets measured by Nielsen Media Research. There was some real upside to this performance, however. This is the »
