Season finale review: 'The Walking Dead' - 'Conquer': Wolves at the door?
A review of tonight's "The Walking Dead" finale coming up just as soon as I want my dish back clean when you're done... No matter what happens in the middle of a season, good or bad, "The Walking Dead" tends to do premieres and finales very well. This is the first time, though, that the series has ended a season with a 90-minute episode, and while the extra-long "Conquer" had some excellent things in it, it also had a number of stupid things, even if the latter occasionally got overtaken by the former. Case in point: the open gate. There is giving Rick an opportunity to prove to the Alexandrians how naive and defenseless they are, and there is having Deanna's other idiot son asking Father Gabriel to close the gate for him, then bolting for no particular reason (maybe he had to do some upper body work before the town meeting? »

Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson at iHeartRadio: Prison Party?
Here are Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson getting down at the iHeartRadio Music Awards (just before Nick Jonas took over with his own performance). Sure, there may be some lip-syncing here. And some of the dance moves may be bizarre. And the focus on toilets is strange. But I'll say it: This song is addictive. Still not convinced Iggy Azalea isn't just a Fanta girl. »

The Walking Dead's Incredible Season Five Finale Nearly Killed Us – Find Out What Went Down!
That was incredible. We were on the edge of our seat throughout that entire finale, and for once, we left it almost totally satisfied and not drowning in tears. Morgan returned, finally, first to show off some insane ninja skills to fend off a new threat – a group of dudes called the Wolves, who are also responsible for all of those walkers with W's on their heads. They've got some sort of walker army, and they're totally evil but Morgan couldn't even leave them to die after knocking them all out with his hiking stick, so he put them in an abandoned car. Then, it was up to Morgan to save Aaron and Daryl from nearly being killed thanks to a trap set by the Wolves, in which a few hundred »

Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande & More Big Winners at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards!
They came, they saw, they won! The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards started with a bang (we're of course talking about that ultra-hot Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson duet) and ended with one, too ("Peaches N Cream," anyone?). Other best moments from the night included Taylor Swift's low-key dance party with Innovator Award winner Justin Timberlake (which was right up there with her fronting guitar for Madonna) and Nick Jonas' steamy "Chains" performance (in which he wore, well, chains). Swift was definitely the biggest winner of the night, nabbing Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Lyrics before the iHeartRadio curtains closed. "More than anything in the world I hope »

Watch: Taylor Swift backed up Madonna at the iHeartRadio Music Awards
Taylor Swift knows that pop royalty deserves serious respect, and she offered it up in a major way: For Madonna's performance of "Ghosttown" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Swift served as Madge's guitarist and didn't contribute a single vocal. The duo gave "Ghosttown" a stripped-down acoustic treatment and looked pretty fantastic as they did it. I'd be down for a Swift cover of "Don't Tell Me" soon. »

First 'Fear the Walking Dead' teaser begins with an outbreak in Los Angeles
When AMC gave its "Walking Dead" companion series the imperative title "Fear the Walking Dead," there was some discussion of whether the series was a "Walking Dead" prequel or just a parallel story. We appear to have our answer. AMC debuted the first "Fear the Walking Dead" trailer during Sunday (March 29) night's season finale for "The Walking Dead" and it looks like the companion series will be starting from the beginning. While the first trailer doesn't feature any footage of stars including Cliff Curtis or Kim Dickens, it showcases East Los Angeles (or Silverlake, I suppose), as well as talk about an encroaching virus in five states. Flu shots won't help! Here's the first 15 second teaser: "Fear the Walking Dead" premieres in summer 2015. »

Watch the New 'Jurassic World' TV Spot (Video)
Universal aired a new trailer for Jurassic World during the Walking Dead finale on Sunday and as we edge closer to June 12, we see a little more of the dinosaur that's sure to be the star turn of the film. Chris Pratt's laconic game-keeper (or should that be dino-keeper?) is once again perturbed by the seemingly blase attitude of his boss Bryce Dallas Howard at creating killer dinosaurs. It's no surprise then when one of dinosaurs, a female, escapes and goes on a rampage, leading to Pratt stating rather wistfully in admiration that "she's killing for

Watch the First Footage From ‘The Walking Dead’ Spinoff
In the 15-second teaser, “Fear” takes a closer look at something AMC’s “The Walking Dead” never got too much into: life just as the zombie apocalypse hit.
“Reports in five states said a strange virus is going around, so if you’re not feeling well, go home and take care of yourselves,” says a voice in the clip just before panning to what seems to be a zombie.
The companion series, which has been handed straight-to-series two season order, got its name on Friday, but specific plot details are being kept mostly under wraps.
