On Wednesday, six-time Tony-winner Audra McDonald returned to The Tonight Show to sing some ridiculous Yahoo! Answers, accompanied on piano by Jimmy Fallon and The Good Wife's Josh Charles. If you enjoyed McDonald's Tony-winning performance as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, you'll love hearing her take on classic tracks like "How can I be the life of the party?", "Does vodka really kill bees and wasps?" and "I swallowed an ice cube last night and then it disappeared, and I'm wondering if it's stuck." Truly effervescent. »

"Salem," Wgn's first original scripted drama, is an unapologetic piece of trash, perhaps best summed up by the scene in the pilot where a naked Janet Montgomery — playing an actual Salem witch in a way that weirdly justifies all of the religion-fueled paranoia of the period — lets a toad suckle at a nipple on her thigh. While a channel's first scripted show isn't always representative of what follows, they tend to create expectations for what's to come, and it would have been easy to assume that Wgn's plan was to lean heavily on campy genre fare. But "Manhattan," Wgn's second original drama (it debuts Sunday night at 9), is as far in tone and ambition and quality from "Salem" as the New Mexico desert of 1943 is from 17th century Massachusetts. At a minimum, it suggests you shouldn't assume anything about whatever the channel's going to do next. Created Sam Shaw and »

Though the Primetime Emmy Awards are the TV honors that everyone's familiar with, when it comes to clout, the Television Critics Association Awards take the cake. Voted on by over 200 professional journalists, the TCA Awards honor the very best in television regardless of which networks can afford the most expensive campaigns, and so the list of 2014 winners comes with a considerable degree of weight. Breaking Bad took the “Program of the Year” title for the second year in a row, while the Outstanding Achievement in Drama award went to CBS’ critical favorite The Good Wife. The Best Comedy award resulted in a tie between the blissfully explicit Veep and FX’s wholly unique Louie, while True Detective won both Best Miniseries and Individual Achievement in a Drama for Matthew McConaughey.
