Difficult doesn't begin to describe the past six months for Samantha Harris. But now that she is officially cancer free, she can get back to work - for herself, and for others. "When I officially got past my second stage of reconstruction surgery, which was the third surgery I'd had this year, and I reached that six-week mark after surgery, that was when I got the all clear," the former Dancing with the Stars and Entertainment Tonight host told People Thursday.

Syfy's “Haven” pulled off a twist no one saw coming when it separated its leading lady into two distinct — but identical — characters.

Rome Film Review: ‘Jia Zhangke: A Guy from Fenyang’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Auteur portraits of fellow auteurs don’t always make for illuminating films: The line between sincere mutual appreciation and smug mutual congratulation can be a fine one. Brazilian director Walter Salles, however, gets the balance just about right in “Jia Zhangke: A Guy from Fenyang,” an intelligent, restrained but warmly intimate cinematic conversation with the Sixth Generation Chinese trailblazer. Similarly simple in concept to Olivier Assayas’ 1997 study of Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Salles’ film follows Jia as he wanders the scarred streets of his hometown — many of them recognizable from his own films — and muses wryly on a politically fractious career. Unspooled in Rome as a “work in progress” (effectively complete, but minus closing credits) ahead of its world premiere at the Sao Paolo fest, this clip-heavy cinephile’s delight should get heavy play on the festival and repertory circuit.

Series premiere talkback: 'Constantine' - 'Non Est Asylum'

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning, I posted my review of NBC's "Constantine." Now it's your turn. For those who tuned in tonight — or saw an earlier version at Comic-Con, or through other methods — what did you think? Was Matt Ryan a better or worse choice than Keanu Reeves? If you're a fan of the character from the comics, did this feel like an authentic translation, or one that just got the surface aspects right? Did you like Lucy Griffiths as Liv, or did you understand why the producers were so eager to dump her after this episode? How did you feel about Harold Perrineau as the angel? Did you like the Constantine vs. Constantine climax? And will you watch again? Have at it. »

Who Wore it Best? Supernatural's Castiel vs. Constantine's John Constantine

9 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Supernatural fans have seen Castiel, an angel played by Misha Collins, rocking the same outfit for six seasons now on the CW hit series.  The angel with free will has become known for his khaki trench coat, black suit, white button down shirt and blue tie. In fact, when he was human for a brief stint in season nine, he was forced to throw away his dirty uniform when he only had enough cash to buy food and not do his laundry...and fans were not happy seeing Cas in regular, human clothes!  It was like seeing Santa rocking blue jeans...aka not pretty at all.  But did you know that Castiel's outfit was not an original costume? Supernatural creator Eric Kripke actually based »

New Radicals frontman Gregg Alexander breaking his silence to talk 'Begin Again'

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — Gregg Alexander is enamored by movies. He grew up in a conservative household where television was "Satan's tool," but he'd sneak off to friends' houses to watch theirs instead. He talks passionately about filmmakers like the Coen brothers, Michael Haneke and Mike Leigh and seems eager to be a part of an industry he finds incredibly efficient. So it's perfectly fitting that he would eventually make his way there via a collaboration on John Carney's "Begin Again," and maybe even more understanding that after 15 years of being relatively reclusive away from touring and the media, he's finally speaking out again in support of the film and his work on tracks like "Lost Stars," which is primed for a Best Original Song Oscar nomination. "It's been exciting and to some degree emboldened me and been a reminder that film and music are amazing dancing partners," Alexander says of his experience. »

Recap: 'The Amazing Race' - 'Morocc' and Roll'

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I missed the monkey in Friday (October 24) night's episode of "The Amazing Race." Before the episode, Phil Keoghan tweeted a picture with a money, so I was excited for a monkey, but rather than being a heavily featured monkey, there was apparently just a single monkey on a leash and I missed him. I caught the monkey in the odd Prego commercial that aired after the episode, but I sat in disappointment not noticing the Moroccan monkey who apparently appeared. Sigh. So Friday night was one big disappointment for me. That's not entirely the fault of the "Amazing Race" episode, mind you. There was a good Detour and a nicely chaotic Roadblock, but is anybody else feeling like this season is slowly devolving into a mixture of unlikable teams and boring teams? I like Bethany & Adam and I think I can root for them until they do something to piss me off. »

'Interstellar' director Christopher Nolan says it's important 'to start looking up again'

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — When you see "Interstellar," you'll get the sense right away that a deep admiration for exploration lies at the root of it all. Amid all of that epic imagery (and equally epic familial drama), there is a seething indictment of our general abandonment of space programs. At a press conference Friday afternoon, filmmaker Christopher Nolan and three of the film's stars spoke about their early experiences with space travel and the value of keeping Nasa funded while continuing to push for the outer limits. "I remember when I was a kid, my first real confrontation with space travel was when the Challenger exploded," actress Jessica Chastain said. "I remember how traumatic that was for me, watching on the news and all the children in class were watching and I was very young. So I never imagined that it was something I wanted to do. But I think we »

ABC Has Cancelled Manhattan Love Story

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

ABC’s Manhattan Love Story is no more: The network has canceled the little-seen romantic comedy, the first freshman casualty of the new fall season. Production on the 8:30 p.m. Tuesday show has halted and no more episodes will air. A previously scheduled Halloween special will air in place of Mls next week, and then, starting Nov. 4, ABC says it will fill the now-dead show’s slot with a second helping of fellow freshman Selfie. Mls debuted to a modest 4.7 million viewers and then continued to bleed viewers each of the four weeks it aired, attracting just 2.6 million this week. (It also got virtually no bump from time-shifting, a sign viewers either had no interest in it or, just as likely, no idea it even existed.) Finally, critics were also harsh on Mls, with Vulture’s Margaret Lyons urging viewers to “run” from the show. »

And the First Canceled New Show of the Fall Is...

10 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

And we have our first victim of the fall. ABC has made the first cancellation of the fall TV season after ordering more episodes of seven of its new and returning series, including Once Upon a Time, Grey's Anatomy and black-ish. The network has canceled Manhattan Love Story, the low-rated freshman rom-com set in the Big Apple, THR reports. The comedy, which starred Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman (who are now dating in real-life, so hey, at least there's a silver lining!), debuted to just 4.7 million viewers, and dropped to 2.7 million by its fourth outing.  Even worse? It notched a paltry 0.7 demo rating in its final outing. In addition to Grey's, Ouat and »
