What to Watch: 5 Web Series Worth Checking Out

27 January 2013 1:29 PM, PST

NBC’s Grimm gives us something to grin about, renown restaurateur Bobby Flay makes being healthy look — dare we say — fun, and child phenoms make us all feel lazy. Plus, you heard it here first: Coin-flipping may determine who walks off with an Oscar next month.

Grimm Web Series | In the first episode of the four-part series, Bud (Danny Bruno), an Eisbiber, stops by Rosalee’s (Bree Turner) spice shop to obtain a hair loss cure for … “a friend.” Silas Weir Mitchell also stars in this humorous little ditty that will tide fans over until the show’s March 8 NBC return. »

Adam Levine Hosts Saturday Night Live: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

27 January 2013 8:36 AM, PST

Adam Levine got a little help from Jerry Seinfeld, Cameron Diaz and Andy Samberg to kick off his first Saturday Night Live hosting gig, but things might’ve worked out better had those bold-faced names mentored the show’s writers instead.

Indeed, the setups this week were so unimaginative, the Maroon 5 frontman wound up playing himself not once, but twice, and even worse, other sketches (the firehouse meltdown, The Sopranos Diaries, even that “Yolo” short) relegated him to nothing more than a bit player with little to no chance of scoring a laugh.

Ratings: Nikita Surges to Season Highs

26 January 2013 12:31 PM, PST

The CW’s Nikita made the most of this relatively quiet Friday night, surging 25 percent week-to-week to score season highs.

In fact, Nikita‘s total audience of 1.6 million viewers marks its largest haul in almost 14 months (since Dec. 2, 2011). And the spy drama’s 0.5 rating represents its best demo delivery since March 23. Impressive — let’s give Michael a hand!

26 January 2013 12:12 PM, PST

You know you’re in for a particularly wild episode Spoiler Alert! when the discussion starts with sideburns and nipples, and ends with a statement like “Someone’s gonna end up sleeping with their sister!”

But that isn’t the half of it!

This week, when Matt Mitovich and I welcome to the guest couch Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer from MTV’s Nikki & Sara Live, our topics range from how American Horror Story will top itself in season 3 (an unsexy Adam Levine?) to how Allison Williams managed to keep her tatas covered during Girls’ most awkward sex scene ever. »

The critically acclaimed Ben and Kate completed production on 15 of its 19 ordered episodes; 13 have aired, and there’s no word on a plan for the final two.

Smash‘s serial lurker is back!

TVLine has learned exclusively that Jaime Cepero will reprise his polarizing role of Ellis, the ruthless and scheming former assistant to Tom and (later) Eileen, during the show’s upcoming second season.
