The waiting game is over. In tonight’s mid-season finale of Grimm, fans were treated to a few moments they’d been ready to see for months. Secrets were revealed, hearts were broken and missions for vengeance were born.
Beware: Spoilers Ahead about tonight’s mid-season finale.
First up, Nick finally finds out that his memory-challenged girlfriend is harboring feelings for another man. He hasn’t been hit with the news of just who that man is yet, but the mental picture of the woman he once proposed to snogging any other guy is enough to send him into angry puppy mode. »

At long last, the end of the world is upon us! Not literally, no, but the fan-favorite trio behind "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" — Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright — are finally set to join forces again for "The World's End," their latest genre-bending picture about five old friends who reunite to replicate an epic pub crawl from their boyhood; calamity and hilarity ensue.
That's about all we know of "World's End," which is supposedly the third and final act in Wright, Pegg and Frost's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. But even if this is the end of the fan-dubbed Blood and Ice Cream movies, it won't be the last time the trio works together again.
"I think it's probably the end of this part of the trilogy. I don't think we'll never work [together] again," Frost told MTV News at the "Snow White and the Huntsman" premiere in London earlier this month. »

Plot: After a year of dating, Tom (Segel) and Violet (Blunt) decide to get married. Once Violet gets accepted to graduate school at University of Michigan, their plans for the ultimate wedding are put on further notice.
Who’S It For? Guys, this isn’t an “engagement” you’ll want to put off for as long as possible (like ol’ Turtle did last week in Think Like a Man). This one still maintains the special quality of frat humor seen in previous Apatow maturity movies like Knocked Up. At the same time, the relationship of Blunt & Segel balances the movie out to offer material that’s more “for the ladies,” if you’re going to force me to use crude demographics. »

The Academy Awards came and went without a win for her screenplay, but there's no question that Kristen Wiig is a hot commodity. The sink-pooping hilarity of Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote over a number of years, has only fueled her rising star as a Saturday Night Live featured player. And there are reports floating that she's planning on leaving SNL at the end of the season.
If so we'll really miss the myriad characters, original and impersonated, that she parades around SNL like someone proud to wear toilet paper on her shoe. To wit, here are some of the biggest hits and misses of Wiig’s SNL career:
The Target Lady
Jazzed by the love of her employer and off her Adhd meds, The Target Lady is a hyper-enthused employee always fleeing her checkout station to score deals she’s found from customers. As a good vehicle for guest stars »

Voters in Iowa have given Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum the green light to continue his surge. This success can be attributed in part to the prayerful support offered by the devoutly Christian Duggars, the fertile stars of the TLC reality show 19 kids and counting. Also, this date marked another hopeful redemption via reality TV in the shape of Celebrity Wife Swap for two other Christian souls, disgraced pastor Ted Haggard and Academy award-nominated actor Gary Busey, whose credits include Gunsmoke, Law and Order, and a voiceover on Grand Theft Auto.
The Haggards became celebrities on the Christian circuit thanks to Ted's high-profile position as founder of New Life Church, a megachurch in Colorado Springs. Also, in his capacity as president of the National Association of Evangelicals, he conversed with »
