And the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 19 winner is...
20 hours ago
Sparkly Spoilers Ahead: The name that was etched into the Mirror Ball Trophy from the first dance this season didn’t have to be hastily magic marker-ed over by DWTS producers. The judges, contestants, and fans all agreed though, that this race between Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, and Janel Parrish became one of the tightest in the history of the show, and the finale freestyle dances (10s all around!) proved it. Luckily, that means a deserving star-turned-dance-machine has taken the crown; and the brand new owner of the trophy that launched a thousand rhinestones is… »

'The Flash': Barry will face Reverse Flash-but who is he?!
25 November 2014 12:18 PM, PST
Even before the debut of The Flash, diehard fans had a pretty good idea about the show's future uber villain. During Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) initial introduction on Arrow last season, the forensic scientist shared the tale of witnessing his mother being murdered by a blurry figure, a clear nod to DC Comics villain Professor Zoom, otherwise known as the Reverse Flash. What's more, when the spin-off began filling out its cast, Rick Cosnett was tapped to play Eddie Thawne, seemingly a play on the name Eobard Thawne, the alter-ego of Professor Zoom. If the producers hadn't quite hit the nail on the head, »

Watch Jess' sexy colleague push (and pop open) her buttons on 'New Girl'
25 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST
Under the pressure of her taboo romance with her colleague, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is literally coming undone. When Ryan (Julian Morris) turns up at the loftmates' holiday singles party, Jess tries to set a few ground rules to keep their relationship buttoned-up. Unfortunately, her sultry-in-scarlet velvet dress has different intentions. Let's just say "Mr. G" has had an eyeful by the time Jess finishes telling him all the unexpected ways that she is totally not acting on her attraction to him. »

'The Walking Dead' star Sonequa Martin-Green on Sasha's big mistake and a 'gut-wrenching' midseason finale
25 November 2014 9:10 AM, PST
I don’t blame her. After all, that Grady Memorial Hospital cop named Bob seemed like a decent enough guy. And he shared the same name as Sasha’s boyfriend Bob, who got…you know, eaten. So Tyreese’s sister maybe wasn’t thinking completely clearly when she agreed to help her prisoner by putting his former friend out of his zombie misery — only to get bum rushed and knocked out, allowing said prisoner to escape. Whoops! We caught up with the woman who plays Sasha, Sonequa Martin-Green, to get her thoughts on what the heck happened. She also breaks »

'Sleepy Hollow' showrunner talks fan reaction to season 2: 'Just trust us'
25 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST
Has Sleepy Hollow lost its groove? The answer to that question depends on who you ask. Ratings for season 2 have been down across the board; fans (and, er, recappers) have become fond of grumbling about the show's perceived shortcomings, from the unfortunate marginalization of Nicole Beharie's Abbie Mills (Sleepy's co-lead, though she's largely taken a backseat to the action this year) to the mishandling of Katia Winter's Katrina, a witch who's always in need of rescue. That said, plenty of folks would argue that season 2 is as bonkers-brilliant as ever—chief among them Mark Goffman, the supernatural dramedy's showrunner. »

New contender for worst sitcom title ever
24 November 2014 1:03 PM, PST
The hallowed list of worst network sitcom titles ever might have a new contender: NBC is developing a comedy titled #Winning. And if that name makes you wince, check out the dozen or so other famously bad sitcom titles below that are arguably worse. The NBC project is inspired by an apparently true story where a trio of friends learned that their "suddenly famous pal broke up with their entire friend group via a form letter, leaving them more determined than ever to 'win' at life." Setting the concept aside, let's take on that title (which could change—this project »

Who is going to die on 'The Walking Dead' midseason finale?
24 November 2014 11:49 AM, PST
Will someone die on Sunday’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead? It could go either way. Last season, both Hershel and the Governor met their ends at the halfway point. So did Sophia in the Barnageddon massacre that closed the first half of season 2. However, season 3’s eighth episode featured no major character deaths (sorry, not counting Oscar or Zombie Penny), so there is no guarantee that someone will be biting the dust on Sunday. But let’s play the timeless game of “What if…?” to try and determine who might be the one to go should somebody not »

24 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST
With CBS' The Mentalist entering its seventh and final season, we spoke to series creator Bruno Heller about what fans expect now that crime-solvers Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) are officially an item, if there's a wedding in their future, whether the CBS finale will have a true ending, and the odds of the popular detective series having an eighth season afterlife on another network. EW: In broad strokes, what’s unique about the final season? Bruno Heller: From a professional point of view, we got a chance that’s rarely given in this business to really end the story, »
