Total Blackout, the Syfy game show that challenges its contestants to complete fearsome tasks in complete darkness, returns tonight for the final six episodes of its second season.
It’s like Fear Factor – but in the dark. Challenges include walking across a plank without the benefit of actually seeing the plank (or how far above the floor it really is), crawling through tunnels filled with unidentified objects, and guessing the weight of objects and/or people (from a large snake to a sumo wrestler) just by touch. But the highlight of Total Blackout episodes tends to be the hilarity-producing challenge »

Katie Couric had a slew of former child stars on her show Monday, and the topic turned to why some are well-adjusted and why others struggle -- namely Amanda Bynes.Jaleel White -- who played Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" and costarred with Amanda in "Big Fat Liar" -- said, "All I can do is really do is pray for her."Jaleel found one of Amanda's bizarre tweets particularly bothersome: Where do you think Amanda Bynes will ultimately end up?Check out more "Tgif" stars by clicking the "Launch Gallery" link below!

Monday's (June 3) episode of "Katie" centers around former child stars, so host Katie Couric asks them to weigh in on troubled starlet Amanda Bynes, who began acting at the age of seven. Jaleel White, best known as Steve Urkel from "Family Matters," has a lot to say about Bynes, having worked with the actress on the 2002 comedy "Big Fat Liar."
"I wish I could take it easy on her," Jaleel says of Amanda. "But sometimes some of the things that comes out of her mouth -- she calls a lot of people ugly; Jay-z and Rihanna, and I'm just like -- I don't know. It comes from a very interesting spiritual place. All I can really do is pray for her, to be quite honest."
Couric then points out the obvious. "This is clearly a young woman who's in trouble, Jaleel, right," she asks. And the actor gives a pretty direct answer. »
It ended the only way that Shameless could. With a car on fire, a pub-load of punters and families partying, a police chase and the overwhelming message that even in the worst situations and with the worst people, there is always something holding us together. Family matters.
Paul Abbott's comedy drama has spanned an impressive 11 series and despite many cast departures, the show has maintained a loyal audience and tonight's (May 28) finale delivered a treat for those who have stuck with the show from the very start.
Anne-Marie Duff, Dean Lennox Kelly, Elliott Tittensor, Jody Latham and Kelli Hollis all returned for one last jaunt around the Chatsworth Estate, while the episode managed to squeeze in a birth, a funeral, an extended Frank Gallagher rant about overpaid footballers and technology-obsessed kids and a brilliant line about Jesus ("He never had a wife. God as his father. Silver spoon up the arse that one. »
Paris-based sales agent Other Angle is celebrating its fifth birthday at Cannes with a flurry of deals across its slate, and a pickup.
“The Big Bad Wolf,” a French comedy starring Benoit Poelvoorde (“Coco Before Chanel”), Kad Merad (“Welcome to the Sticks”) and Charlotte Le Bon (“Yves Saint Laurent”) sold to Canada (Christal), Switzerland (Frenetic) and Benelux (Alternative). Deals for Germany, Russia, Spain and Italy are closing.

Case in point: “On the Other Side of the Tracks,” a buddy cop comedy toplining “Intouchables” star Omar Sy and Laurent Lafitte (“Little White Lies”), sold to over 40 territories, »

HBO's "True Blood" ventures into a world where Bill (Stephen Moyer) is the ultimate vampire (known as "Billith" to the fandom) and isn't too fond of others. In a new "Waiting Sucks" behind the scenes clip, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) learns that there's something (or someone) else hunting down vampires. Who knows what their endgame is, but they want to learn as much as possible about vamp-kind.

Ah, nostalgia for the '90s, that bygone era when rock stars wore flannel and Friday nights were for cheesy sitcoms! It now seems that we could get a reunion for Tgif mainstay, "Step by Step." One of its stars, Patrick Duffy, is apparently all for bringing the Lambert-Foster clan back together.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Duffy revealed his idea for bringing "Step by Step" back. "I would love to work with Suzanne [Somers] again," Duffy said. "The 'Step by Step' cast was so wonderful to be with. They were my family, and I think a little two-hour special about where these people are -- not a documentary but actually doing a show -- seeing where they all come to over the years. It would be so fun to play that goofy Frank Lambert character again, aging another 25 years."
Obviously, Duffy has been thinking about this. »
It was the first thing on everyone's mind after the Veronica Mars movie made over $3 million in approximately 22 seconds: what's next? If there's anything Hollywood likes it's a trend. And getting fans to pay more for their movies. Combine the two and we're on the rain-slick precipice of falling into a world where every cancelled TV show gets a second shot on the silver screen. Thankfully Funny or Die has given us a glimpse into what that world might look like. And you know what? It's kind of glorious. Why not let Reginald VelJohnson pitch Taken 3: Family Matters? Who can deny Jerry O'Connell the joy of bringing to life all of the wacky Sliders universes he dreams about every night? Do any of us really want to live in a world without those...

I had a friend who, several years ago, decried Community as "too 'T.G.I.F.'"
For those of you too young to remember (or those of you whose parents only let you watch PBS while growing up), "T.G.I.F." was a Friday night programming block on ABC that featured such thought-provoking, high-brow comedy as Perfect Strangers, Full House and whatever show Urkel* was on.
I knew my friend meant it as a put-down about the way Community liked to have episodes end in a pat moral lesson, but I thought Community was a bit like "T.G.I.F." in the good way. In the same way that the "T.G.I.F." line-up had its mysterious foreign cousins, appearances by Stefan Urquelle, and other improbable nonsense that left my pre-teen self feeling like the world was ultimately a good place, so did Community leave me »

This week, Google celebrated April Fool's Day by promoting "Google Nose," while Ellen DeGeneres put together a highlight reel of her best pranks. Tracy Morgan and Jimmy Fallon recited some interesting fun "facts," and a young comedian parodied Taylor Swift in a sad-but-true song about leaving your 20s behind. Plus: Should someone start a Kickstarter campaign for a Family Matters movie? Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

With the success of fans using Kickstarter to fund the gestating film adaptation of the series "Veronica Mars", there's a plethora of fans trying to get their various shows on the big screen, and some of the talent is listening (like Zachary Levi talking about a "Chuck" movie). Yesterday, Funny or Die took it to the extreme by launching Kickstart or Die, with a series of projects they're trying to get funded based on series from the 90s. Honestly, I wouldn't be adverse to a movie for Sliders or Darkwing Duck, but there's also Family Matters, a one-man show with Baby Sinclair from Dinosaurs and a Wings revival. Kickstart Sliders, Darkwing Duck, Family Matters, Dinosaurs and Wings from Kickstart or Die: The Dinosaurs one falls a bit flat, but the rest of them are pretty damn great. It's awesome to see Jim Cummings in the flesh and lending his voice to this Darkwing Duck gag, »

Traditionally on April Fools' Day, we see a lot of fake news about obviously ridiculous movie announcements. Today, for instance, there's Funny or Die's Veronica Mars movie parody campaigns involving big-screen versions of Wings, Sliders, Darkwing Duck and Family Matters, and a promotion for the upcoming Seth Rogen/James Franco movie This Is the End came in the form of a Pineapple Express 2 trailer. In the past, we've seen nice pranks involving a Criterion Collection release of Kindergarten Cop, Fox Searchlight rereleasing Garden State and Little Miss Sunshine in 3D, Tim Burton remaking Little Shop of Horrors, a Matrix movie starring Robert Pattinson, a C.S. Lewis biopic starring Kirk Cameron, Johnny Depp playing Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street...

After finding out that "Veronica Mars" was able to raise enough money on KickStarter to make a feature film, lots of other shows are attempting to raise money for their own movies. Thanks to FunnyOrDie, we now have April Fools videos of Jerry O'Connell pitching a "Sliders" movie, as well as Reginald VelJohnson pitching a "Family Matters" movie, which will apparently be like "Taken." Check out the videos below, as well as pitches for Darkwing Duck, Dinosaurs, Wings. Sliders: Family Matters: »
This year Funny or Die pranked us with an April Fools joke that would get any lover of the 90s excited followed by immediate letdown. Creating the faux site Kickstart of Die for our favorite dated 90s shows like "Wings," "Sliders," "Dinosaurs," "Family Matters," and "Darkwing Duck," Funny or Die gave us an enjoyable dose of nostalgia while also supporting real charities. On each of the show's fake Kickstarter pages the original casts come together in videos asking for help in turning their memorable shows into movies since, if "Veronica Mars" could do it, why not? In the "Wings" video the casts tell us that the film "Wings: Serenity" has already been partially shot, but still needs $60 million more to finish. But before you pledge your dollars just yet make sure to watch the exclusive clip from the unfinished film in which Steven Weber and Amy Yasbeck try to save »

Ah, April Fools’: The one day when you can’t believe everything you read online.
A Google product that leverages “photo-auditory-olfactory sensory convergence,” a Twitter initiative that asks users to pay for vowels, and bacon-flavored mouthwash are just the tip of the jocular iceberg this year. Read on for a list of some of the best gags we’ve come across so far; we’ll be updating it throughout the day.
The search giant/omnipotent Internet god’s next big project? Searchable smells. Somehow, this still doesn’t sound as ridiculous as Google Glass.
