Read More: Sundance Review: Kevin Bacon Takes on Troublemaking Kids in Entertaining 'Cop Car' As a promotion for the upcoming two-hour episode of "The Following," someone at Fox decided to make the video above, in which Dean Winters ("30 Rock's" Dennis Duffy and Mayhem in those insurance commercials) and Kevin Bacon have lunch and then get Followed by folks including Michael C. Hall and Kyra Sedgwick... It all makes perfect sense if you watch the show. The point is, Dean Winters re-enacts World War II with toys in his bathtub. Important. The video, directed by showrunner Marcos Siega, is titled "Funny And Die" because it's meant to be funny and because (spoiler!) people die -- but this definitely wasn't made by Funny Or Die.

The Following gets a double dose this week, as Fox put two characteristically nasty episodes back-to-back...
This review contains spoilers.
3.4 Home & 3.5 A Hostile Witness
There's always a bit of an issue when a show does two episodes back to back. Do you try to stretch a night of watching into two reviews, considering the episodes are technically two separate episodes just on the same night? Or do you just combine the two of them and call it a night much like Fox's programmers did? In a serialized show like The Following, it's not quite the issue it would be on a show that is more episodic, so combining episode 4 and 5, titled Home and A Hostile Witness respectively, seems like the right thing to do even if that would cover a lot of ground in a single review.
There's something to be said for making someone wait for something. Instant gratification is great, »
There wasn’t a lot of movement in Monday’s ratings race, which saw NBC prevail again in key demos thanks to the night’s top show, “The Voice.” Also of note, ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” held up well in its second week and a pair of dramas that hit lows in recent weeks, NBC’s “The Night Shift” and Fox’s “The Following,” both edged up.
According to preliminary “live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “The Voice” averaged a 3.3 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 11.9 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., on par with last week and beating both ABC and CBS by 4 shares in the demo. At 10 p.m., “The Night Shift” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) was up from last week and was competitive in the demo with its drama competitors on ABC and CBS; it typically is revised down in the nationals, »

You've never seen Kevin Bacon like this before. The Following star teamed up with his executive producers Marcos Siega and Alexi Hawley for Funny And Die, starring himself and Dean Winters. The epic parody of the Fox serial killer thriller was shot last weekend, and it's got a crazy connection to another serial killer thriller series that bowed two years ago...Dexter! That's right, Bacon got Michael C. Hall to guest star in the twisted video short, but is he playing himself...or is he a follower of Joe Carroll's (James Purefoy)? Watch the hilarious short above now! Can we all just take a moment to let the amazingness of Funny And Die sink in?! Not only did Bacon get his real-life »

On Friday (March 20) morning, I assembled a one-person appeals board and by a unanimous decision, I've decided that the TV Academy and its genre classification system is/are a Comedy, because darned if those clowns don't make me laugh, which is more than I can say for undisputed comedy "Nurse Jackie." For a few years, the TV Academy has had difficulties with Emmy classification, because nobody on the Emmy rules committee is capable of accepting that sometimes things that are dramatic can also offer comedic elements and sometimes things that are comedic can often have dramatic elements and sometimes things that have a running time of between 44 minutes and an hour can be comedies and, in occasional extremes, it's even been known for half-hour things to be dramatic. It's almost as if life itself is neither wholly dramatic or wholly comedic and sometimes tone is fungible. But don't expect for »

The Following‘s sexed-up slaughterers will be less of a mystery — but probably more of a threat — after this week’s episode, according to this exclusive sneak peek at the hour.

Three episodes into The Following, and we've yet to see Joe Carroll. Sure, he's been talked about, and the events behind last season's Lily/Joe shenanigans have been the subject of many discussions and a Congressional hearing, but they're taking their time introducing Joe back into the world. It's coming, and I believe he's behind all of what's happening thus far, but it remains to be seen just what role Joe is going to play and just how this is all going to end up with him escaping police custody to resume his killing spree. For now, let's concern ourselves with the killers we have, not the killer we're waiting on.
The foremost murderer we have at this point is Neil, the mammoth »

Announced back in January, former Doctor Who David Tennant will be taking on the role of Zebediah Killgrave aka Purple Man in the upcoming Netflix show A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which is set to debut next year.
“This is something I grew up with,” Tennant said at North Carolina’s Wizard World (via withanaccent.com). “It’s like my eight year old self doesn’t know what to do with himself. I think comic books are a glorious wonderful art form and I think Marvel is one of the things that we’ll be looking back on in a hundred years’ time they’ll be one of the cornerstones of our cultural existence.”
Tennant also had a trip round Marvel recently and seemed to have grand old time. “I got shown around and clever people gave me comic books and told me how they got made and met people that spent their day doing that stuff, »

[Youtube "elUNFHEWaCc"] The egg lobby has finally landed its perfect spokesman. Kevin Bacon, star of The Following and best known for being separated by six degrees from any actor from any film or TV show in creation, has finally embraced his last name in a commercial for IncredibleEgg.org. The premise of the spot is that, well, "Nobody knows eggs better than Bacon," as the actor puts it. "Did you know that each egg contains six-" he starts, before being cut off by the woman in the commercial: "Six degrees of separation! Right." "No," replies Bacon. "I was going to say six grams of high quality protein. »
