Dandy Turns Up the Crazy on ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

11 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Damn it, Ryan Murphy. You did it again. We thought last week’s episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show was too much to handle, but we were definitely wrong. Last night’s episode, aptly titled “Tupperware Party Massacre,” kicked it up several notches. And by “it,” we mean the blood-bathing, weirdly infantile, and over-gelled menace known as Dandy (Finn Wittrock).

So much next-level shit happened last night that needs to be addressed. Luckily, VH1 is here for you. Let’s start by breaking down Dandy’s most psychotic moments, shall we?

1. Dandy goes to Maggie Esmerelda (“Surprise, bitch!” empress) for some spiritual guidance. 

Dandy was definitely the star (in the Mommie Dearest sense) of the most recent Freak Show hour. We start the episode with him seeking advice from supreme fake fortune teller Maggie about his lady issues (i.e.: Bette and Dot got a whiff of his »

Local Chefs Have Right Recipe for Food Network’s Global Plans

10 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Food is fast becoming the universal language of television.

Food Network parent company Scripps Networks Interactive is in the midst of a big push to beef up its international channel portfolio. The effort began five years ago as a mission to export the culinary adventures of homegrown stars like Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, Giada De Laurentiis, Rachael Ray and Alton Brown to viewers globally.

But as the channels have taken root in the U.K., Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, execs have been pleasantly surprised at the wealth of local talent they’ve discovered, and how well the shows travel from territory to territory. The early success has convinced Food Network to redouble its investment in local original programming.

“Just as we have done in the U.S., we’re finding talents who are just at the beginning of their careers,” says Jim Samples, president of international for Scripps Networks. »

Rachael Ray Reveals What She Thinks About Gwyneth Paltrow and Martha Stewart's Ongoing Feud

4 December 2014 5:42 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is Rachael Ray on Team Gwyneth Paltrow or Team Martha Stewart? That's the question a viewer wanted answered after she phoned in to Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Wednesday. Rather than publicly bash her peers, Ray wisely took a diplomatic approach. "I'm on team food. I think everybody who likes to eat has a different take on it and everybody's opinion should be respected," she said. "I love Gwyneth Paltrow. I think that she is very devoted to everything she puts her mind to, and I think she is really a brilliant cookbook author. She writes in many different disciplines." What about Stewart (or M. Diddy, as she was known in prison)? "I have to have nothing but respect for »

Watch John Oliver Attack Homer Simpson, R2D2 With Salmon Cannon

10 November 2014 9:13 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Oliver spent his acclaimed first season on HBO's Last Week Tonight sounding off on hot-button issues like civil forfeitures, the terror of drone strikes and the NFL's wishy-wishy policies toward domestic abuse. And during Sunday night's season finale, the host focused on another headline-maker: the Salmon Cannon. 

Oliver opens the bit by giving a definition of "salmon": "cat food for people, tuna's understudy that you hope never has to go on and that stupid fish that doesn't know how rivers work." The host then cites a recent TV »

“The Simpsons” Reaches Its Lego Anniversary, Six Seasons for “Hot in Cleveland” and “Childrens Hospital”

2 May 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


As of this week, streaming video services like Netflix and Hulu are required to have closed captions the same way broadcast TV is required. That happened thanks partly to activism by Marlee Matlin. Matlin is now working to make captions more accurate (yes, please!) and to try to implement crowdsourcing of captions.

Former One Tree Hill cutie Tyler Hilton has joined the cast of CBS’ summer drama Extant, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hilton will play a techie who is a “rock star” at work but socially awkward away from his office.

I hope Tyler Hilton’s wearing those cute specs on Extant.

TV Land has ordered a sixth season of Hot in Cleveland.

Also renewed for a sixth season: Adult Swim’s Childrens Hospital, which will take a longer-than-usual hiatus returning in the summer of 2015.

Here’s the latest poster for AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire:

Food Network Star Returns June 1st – Meet The Contestants

24 April 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Food Network Star is a show that represents a bizarre high and low for me. If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably already know my take on the show, and what happens afterward. The short version is that while I actually love the competition show itself, it never (almost) ends up with a person that I would ever watch, and that’s almost always because the person I would actually watch gets cut fairly early.

On the other side of the coin, the show becomes less interesting to me (as do all reality competitions) the more we move into the category of contestants who already own restaurants, or otherwise have a fairly decent food-related career. But, that’s just me.

At any rate, the show has some new twists this time around, and the competition is going on the road.

Take a look at all the info below, »

Tahmoh Penikett to Heat Up Another CW Show, Hgtv Orders a Show from Ellen DeGeneres and “Modern Family” Takes an Australian Vacation

23 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


I’ve been trying to figure out a way to discuss last Sunday’s Game of Thrones but end up stuck trying to find a way to word it without being spoilery. However, The Daily Banter nicely sums up why it’s ridiculous to keep calling that one scene shocking when the whole episode was full of shocking brutality.

Tahmoh Penikett seems like The CW’s new featured hunk. The former Battlestar Galatica star recently showed up on Supernatural and Star Crossed. Now, E! reports that he’ll be appearing on the season finale of Reign.

One of the challenges of taking the fake news show format pioneered by The Daily Show to a premium channel like HBO — the lack of commercials. Really. Last Week Tonight producer Tim Carvell explains, “We realized early on, you don’t necessarily want to hear anybody talk to you for a half an hour straight. »

Kirstie Alley Defends "Circus Fat" Comment: I Can Call Myself Whatever I Want!

8 April 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kirstie Alley is coming to her own defense after receiving backlash for her comment that she wasn't "circus fat" in a new advertisement with Jenny Craig. The former Fat Actress star appeared on Rachael Ray's daytime talk show and told her, "So, on my ad, I say I'm not fat-fat, I'm not circus fat, I've just gained 30 pounds. Well first of all, I'm talking about myself, and second of all, I grew up in an era—pioneer days—I grew up in an era where my dad would take me to the fair and to the circus and they actually had fat ladies in the circus." She added, "Everybody in the audience was so thin that they would bring out this fat lady and would like, point and »

Hollywood Figures Make Last-Minute Push for Affordable Care Act Enrollment

31 March 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood’s role in promoting enrollment in the Affordable Care Act was on display in the final hours before a deadline for coverage this year, as John Legend, Jared Leto and Kerry Washington were among a wave of figures tweeting a link to and a top administration official once again defended President Obama’s turn to pop culture to spread the word.

Monday was the last day of open enrollment, with more website problems reported due to a software bug and to a surge in traffic. Nevertheless, a scramble for signups had been expected, and the site reported record volume.

As the enrollment date approached on Oct. 1, the White House sought to tap into pop culture, drawing on Obama’s base of entertainment industry supporters to send out tweets and other types of social media messaging, for YouTube stars to promote signups, and for administration officials to appear »

Rider Strong Films “Girl Meets World” Appearance, “Arrow” Debuts Its Suicide Squad and You Should Watch “Enlisted”

19 March 2014 4:47 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Following this week’s Teen Wolf shocker, MTV has unveiled a memorial site.

Andrew Rannells tells E! that he’d like to see Elijah bring some guy-on-guy sexuality to Girls. “I volunteered myself for nakedness… I feel like with Looking on the air, I gotta represent some gay sex on the show. I’m willing.” I’d think it would be safe to say that we’ll be willing to watch that.

Six reasons you need to watch Enlisted.

Betsy Brandt is getting back to participating in prestige cable dramas, taking a role in the second season of Masters of Sex, according to The Hollywood Reporter in a recurring role. She’ll play Dr. Masters‘ new secretary.

Brandt may not be the only Breaking Bad alum to show up on another cable drama. Aaron Paul and Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter have been publicly tweeting each other about »

“King of the Nerds” Crowns a Winner, Adrian Pasdar Joins “S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “The Big Bang Theory” Will Be Around Until 2017

13 March 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


A&E has pulled Those Who Kill from the schedule after two weeks. The crime drama has failed to hold onto the audience of its lead-in Bates Motel. However, A&E isn’t cancelling the show yet, the channel plans on relaunching the show.

CBS has renewed The Big Bang Theory for three seasons. That will keep the show on the air until the spring of 2017.

This works as a still from tonight’s episode or as a group reaction to the renewal.

If you want to see the best challenges in reality TV you should be watching the amazing King of the Nerds, which airs its finale tonight. Then again, it’s impossible to do any better than to have a “navigate a laser maze to rescue George Takei” challenge.

Rose McIver (last seen on Masters of Sex and Once Upon a Time as Tinkerbell) has been picked »

Michelle Obama Reveals What Really Made Her Say "Ew" as a Kid—Plus, What Song Makes Her Happy?

3 March 2014 2:51 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We can probably all agree that seeing Michelle Obama on Jimmy Fallon's "Ew!" sketch with Will Ferrell was one of the best things ever. Right? Right. Along with bringing the funny, Flotus just seemed like such a natural when it came to ew-ing things, and that's because she had her fair share of saying "ew" to some specific dinner options when she was younger. Like what, you ask? "Brussel sprouts. Uh, liver," Obama began to tell Rachael Ray (airing March 5). "Liver was a dark day in our household. It was dark…We were angry." Liver: Ew! Unless you actually enjoy eating liver—like Ray, who said she "grooved on liver"— then it would »

“Looking” Faces a Minority Trap, a “Portlandia” Teaser and Britney Spears Becomes a “Simpsons” Figure

20 February 2014 4:34 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Hln has announced its first set of new shows as part of its new identity as the channel for the “social media generation”. It includes I Can Haz NewsToons highlighting online political satire, Keywords which sounds like an online scavenger hunt game show and #What’s Your Fomo about people’s “Fear of Missing Out”. I double checked the story to make sure it didn’t come from The Onion. It isn’t. I think. I’d better check again.

Talking to a panel, Looking writer Jc Lee commented on the criticism the show has received from gay viewers, “It’s a minority trap… When you have a piece that showcases a community, there’s this identity factor where if you’re showing a certain kind of queerness, you’re not honoring what queerness is. There’s a sense their queerness feels threatened by a show that is normalizing it. »

Denis O’Hare Turns to a “Rake”, Will Forte is the “Last Man on Earth” and John Oliver Gets a Premiere Date

13 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


The casting for Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham continues as Donal Logue has been picked to play Harvey Bullock, a detective on the Gotham police, one with a confusing history thank to all those continuity reboots at DC Comics.

Fox has ordered a comedy series from the writers of The Lego Movie. The Last Man on Earth stars Will Forte as, well… the last man on earth. The series is expected to start airing sometime in 2015.

Will Forte

The cast of Sharknado 2 has added a handful of actors including Vivica A. Fox, Judah Freidlander, Mark McGrath, Judd Hirsch (playing a cabbie, see what they did?), Kelly Osbourne and, uh, Andy Dick. In a few of those cases, I suspect the casting is the result of a “Which celebrity would you like to see eaten by a shark? (Yes, we already know about Tara Reid.)” survey.

Yes, there is a change. »
