At the time, she had no idea what was going on and didn't tell anyone what happened."This older girl was one of the cool girls who would say, you know, 'Let's do this. Let's do that. Do you wanna try a cigarette?' One of those things where she made you want to feel like you were a grownup, and that was what made her cool," Williams said in an episode of "Oprah's Master Class."She continued, "She came into the room where my friend and I were sleeping and she told me to lie down on the floor. She took my bottoms off and she said, 'Be quiet,' and she went down on me. And at 10 years old, »

News Nuggets: Emmys chief will 'definitely' look into 'fishy' Emmy category entries

13 July 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum addresses fears that shows and performers are entering into "fishy" categories to increase their chances of winning Emmys. TV Critics Association members specifically asked on Sunday about "Orange is the New Black" and "Shameless" submitting as comedies and why certain series regulars are considered guest stars. Rosenblum said, "This isn't a new problem. I remember 'Desperate Housewives' entered into the comedy category. So, this isn't something that is a new issue for the category to be raised. It predates my tenure here." He added, "But as an organization, should we look at refining those rules? We should definitely look at it."

'Game of Thrones' vs. 'Game of Crowns' and other fictional-turned-reality shows

13 July 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Game of Thrones is the latest fictional show to get the reality treatment — well, sort of. Tonight, Bravo premieres Game of Crowns, a reality show that sounds suspiciously like the HBO fantasy drama but is really about pageant ladies vying for the winning tiara. Which, you know, could get as dangerous as Game of Thrones.

This isn’t the first time a fictional show has spawned a similar-sounding reality show. MTV released Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County in 2004 after seeing how successful the fictional The O.C. was; Bravo did something similar when they launched The Real Housewives in »

Press Tour: Emmy chief will look at category problem, do nothing

13 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's press tour panel for the 2014 Emmy telecast was a chance for Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" producer Mike Shoemaker to talk about their approach to Seth hosting the show. Mainly, though, it was an opportunity for TV critics to complain to Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum about the broken Emmy category system — and for Rosenblum to smile, talk about his desire to examine the problem, and then make clear that he has no real plans to do anything to fix it. In fact, Rosenblum mainly seemed to think that the category issue — where dramatic shows are submitted as comedies, where miniseries are submitted as ongoing series (and, in the case of shows like "Tremé" and "Luther," vice versa), where series regulars are submitted as guest stars — was a good thing, because it suggested a healthy state of the industry. "There's far more terrific programming today," he noted. "The »

Birthday Gallery: Gale Harold Turns 45

10 July 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Over the last 15 years, Gale Harold has had recurring roles on shows as diverse as Defiance, Hellcats, Desperate Housewives, The Secret Circle and Vanished, and well-received turns on stage in Suddenly Last Summer and Orpheus Descending, but of course, it’s his role as the ultimate TV bad boy icon Brian Kinney on Queer As Folk for which he’s most well known.

Brian was the guy you loved to hate … or hated to love, and of all the gay characters ever seen on TV, he may be the most polarizing. But what can’t be argued with is what Gale brought to the role, a combination of charisma, danger, sex appeal, and ultimately … heart.

Today is Gale’s 45th birthday, so let’s take a look back at the career of the man who brought us one of TV’s most unforgettable bastards.

Exclusive: Hear the first sounds from the 'The Purge: Anarchy' soundtrack

8 July 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fans of 2013's "The Purge" should ready themselves with round two from "The Purge: Anarchy,"  to the strains of the same composer from the first scary flick. Nathan Whitehead returned to score the sequel, and HitFix today exclusively reveals the first piece to arrive from the soundtrack: the ominously titled "Don't Do This." Check out the song below. “Scoring ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ was thrilling,” Whitehead said of the new music. “Everything is bigger this time; the action, drama and tension all take place on a much larger scale. I worked hard to incorporate this larger scope in the music, and we went much further combining aggressive electronics and textures with a live orchestra. It was such a satisfying challenge, and I hope my score delivers the intense experience that moviegoers are looking forward to having.” The original soundtrack will be be released on July 15 via Back Lot Music, while the »

Composer Steve Jablonsky on 'Transformers: Age of Extinction': 'This was the craziest film of all'

26 June 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Steve Jablonsky would be among the millions excited about the opening of “Transformers: Age of  Extinction” tomorrow if he weren’t so fatigued. “I barely know what day it is,” he says.   Since last December, he has worked on the score for Michael Bay’s new “Transformers” film. He’s so tired, he’s not even sure how much music is in the film. “It’s about two hours of music,” he says. “We could figure it out, but we’re all too exhausted.” He has another algorithm: Working on one Michael Bay film is like “scoring two-and-a-half smaller films.” He finished the score in early June, mere days before the movie debuted in Hong Kong. “Some people have told me not to mention how last minute it was, but at the premiere, Michael stood up and said, ‘I finished this film 40 hours ago.’ This one was the craziest film of them all. »

Have you seen these Sesame Street TV spoofs?

24 June 2014 11:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Sesame Street delivers its True Blood parody, we revisit its TV spoofs from Sons Of Anarchy to Mad Men and more...


It's an odd combination: pre-school puppet show meets some of TV's most adult, violent, sex-charged drama, but it's showing no signs of going away. In addition to Sesame Street's clutch of film parodies (if you've not seen it, we can recommend Hunger Games: Catching Fire), the PBS children's show has been spoofing TV's best and brightest for years. 

As its latest TV parody - an educational felt version of HBO's True Blood dedicated, as so many of these spoofs are, to the art of rhyming - arrives, let's revisit some of Sesame Street's previous homages, from Birdwalk Empire, to Homelamb, Sons Of Poetry, 30 Rocks and more...

Jersey Boys’ Erich Bergen on Getting Fired and Why Clint Eastwood Waits in Line for Lunch

23 June 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s not that strange for a stage actor to play the same role for the film version. Erich Bergen is different, though, in one key way: He was fired from the Las Vegas cast of Jersey Boys five years ago, only to land the part of Four Seasons songwriter and singer Bob Gaudio in the Clint Eastwood–helmed movie edition that opened Friday. Bergen, who kicked up a media ruckus in the Vegas press in 2009 by badmouthing the producers after his dismissal, admits he wasn’t sure what would become of his career after that. But the 28-year-old booked a series of plays and musicals, including a starring role in the touring cast of Anything Goes, and appeared on Desperate Housewives, Gossip Girl, and other TV shows. This fall, he’ll star opposite Téa Leoni and Bebe Neuwirth in Madame Secretary, which CBS is slipping between 60 Minutes and The Good Wife on Sundays. »

Everything mentioned from 2004 and 2005 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

20 June 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

VH1′s latest wallow in very recent nostalgia is, by nature, a silly exercise: On Saturday, the five-night anthology will end by celebrating the long-ago year of 2009—you know, that dark age when The Simpsons was only in its 21st season, and commuters who wanted to play Angry Birds had no choice but to do it on the iPhone 3Gs. Those suckers didn’t even have iOS 7!

If it’s going to be done, though, it might as well be done right—which is why there was something vaguely disappointing about the pop-culture milestones celebrated in the miniseries’ fifth and sixth episodes, »

17 June 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Taormina, Sicily – Eva Longoria was honored Tuesday with a humanitarian award by the Taormina Film Festival in Italy where the multihyphenate champion of many causes talked about how her stardom attained playing Gabriela Solis on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” boosted her philanthropic bent.
