'The Walking Dead' Season 6 photos welcome you to the gun show
The first trailer for “The Walking Dead” Season 6 will be released next week during San Diego Comic-Con. Until then, AMC has given fans a tantalizing taste of what’s to come with photos of Glenn, Maggie, and Daryl courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. It was only a matter of time before things bottomed out in Alexandria and if these images are anything to go by, the Group’s time in civilization is drawing to a close. Glenn is in the midst of firing a round — as noted by the shell casing majestically twirling away from the gun — while sporting some brand-new facial injuries. Maggie might not be visibly injured, but her stance is one of someone ready to shoot a suburbanite. Daryl continues to be Daryl: nonplussed and ready for action. The lack of cookie-cutter houses behind him may indicate he’s already blown the Alexandria popsicle stand. »

Watch Bree Newsome Tell Her South Carolina Story (Video)
I'm sure you're all aware of filmmaker and activist Bree Newsome's bold act of defiance in South Carolina last week; if not, what rock have you been hiding under? A Google or Twitter search of her name will get you all caught up. Or you can also watch her tell the whole story on any of the TV shows she appeared on yesterday, which was apparently media day for her. She was interviewed by Amy Goodman for Democracy Now, by Chris Hayes on MSNBC, by CBS News, and several others, seemingly ending the day with an appearance on Larry Wilmore's late-night show, "The Nightly Show," on Comedy Central. She even now has her own Wikipedia page. I've embedded the segment from her appearance on "The Nightly Show" below. Click on any of the above links to watch the others:

Jon Stewart Leads Donald Trump Sing-Along
Many people have weighed in at great length on Donald Trump and his Mexican Rapists Candidacy Announcement, since the real-estate mogul delivered the headline-making speech in the gold-plated halls of Trump Towers a couple weeks ago. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart has not been one of them. His relative restraint in the days following the speech has surprised Stewart fans; it was as if raw meat has been thrown to a piranha and the fish had turned up its nose. This finally… »
Review: 'Hannibal' Season 3, Episode 5, 'Contorno': Throw Will From The Train
Previously: Review: 'Hannibal' Season 3, Episode 4, 'Aperitivo': Revenge Society Appetizer Previously, Will teamed up with Chiyoh, Jack teamed up with Inspector Pazzi, and Hannibal waited for everyone to come to him. Much more importantly, Mads Mikkelsen showed up in the new Rihanna video John Woo-ing a pair of money guns, and that's just amazing. Will Graham: Doin' Stuff! Concern set in early this episode, with yet more gratuitous slow-mo and snail close-ups. And things weren't looking much better when Will and Chiyoh settled in their train car with a good old-fashioned mope-off. ("No, Hannibal hurt me more!") Chiyoh offers this gratuitous insight: "If you don't kill him, you are worried you are going to become him." Yeah, we know! We've been watching this whole time! At this point, I was worried we were in for another stretched-out slog of an episode. But all was forgiven when Chiyoh »

'Big Brother 17' Spoilers: Who Won the Week 2 Battle of the Block?
It should've been a simple second week on Big Brother 17. The entire house was united against Audrey and it seemed like she would be the obvious target. But with such a crazy season filled with people trying to make big moves right away, nothing is that simple.
Even crazier, the new HoHs, Becky and Shelli, only had about six hours after winning HoH before they made their nominations, with the Battle of the Block coming at 5am. So in less than 12 hours, the HGs evicted Jace, two new HoHs were chosen, they got their HoH room, chose Have-Nots and played the Battle of the Block.
Spoiler Warning: This article contains Big Brother 17 spoilers.

SAG-aftra Seeking Protection for News Crews After San Francisco Attacks
SAG-aftra is seeking additional security measures for the protection of reporting teams in the aftermath of attacks on TV news teams covering a shooting death in San Francisco.
Three attackers stole equipment from Kntv and camera operator Alan Waples was pistol-whipped in the aftermath of a homicide on Pier 14 on Wednesday night.
“Safety for broadcasters continues to be a major concern in light of the continued robberies and attacks on news crews in the field,” the union said. “Our San Francisco Local met with all major news stations and requested various security measures for reporting teams. We also met with the Oakland Police Department on several initiatives, including: direct communication with area captains; safety training; parking passes; and stats on crimes involving media in a ongoing effort to protect news crews.”
The union said it would continue to reach out to the San Francisco Mayor’s Office and the S. »

Hannibal Recap: Bowels to the Wall
The snails slowly, beautifully pulling themselves across our screens throughout Season 3 of Hannibal can’t be mere coincidence, can they?
A few minutes into “Contorno” — the fifth hour of the NBC drama’s current run — those maddening molluscs appeared again, and I wondered if it was evil-genius creator Bryan Fuller’s inside joke about the plodding pace he’s adopted in the wake of the Season 2 finale’s horrifying bloodbath.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’d have given Seasons 1 and 2 every Emmy imaginable, »
‘Under the Dome’s’ Big Twist Isn’t All That Revealing (Spoilers)
“All Will Be Revealed” the on-air tease promised at the end of last week’s two-hour “Under the Dome” premiere, offering an incentive to brave another visit to the hermetically sealed-off town of Chester’s Mill. And while certain facts did come spilling out in rather ungainly fashion, either that ad was misleading (hardly a shock in the world of network promotion) or the words “all” and “revealed” must mean something different in TV circles.
It’s worth remembering only a few weeks have passed, in actual time, during the two-plus summers the show has been airing on CBS, seeking to wrangle Stephen King’s book into a manageable series. As with many past King productions, the mystery-shrouded premise reeled in viewers initially, only to watch those big numbers erode as the program became increasingly frustrating in its absurdity.
Until now, the producers have done a pretty fair impersonation of Lucy with the football, »

Rookie Blue Recap: Father Doesn't Know Best — But Does Sam?
Christopher Hayden, you’re a bad, bad dad.
Gilmore Girls vet David Sutcliffe plays really against type on Thursday night’s Rookie Blue as an abusive, overly controlling, super-strict father (to Orphan Black‘s Zoé De Grand Maison, aka Gracie!).
How horrible is he? “It’s not an appropriate shirt,” has never sounded so disturbing. And he makes his daughter sleep in a freezer in the garage when she’s “bad.” (Poor Gracie — from one crazy dad to another.)
