6 Things You Didn't Know About 'Big Bang Theory' Before the Season 8 Premiere!

17 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et has some behind the scenes tidbits from TV's top rated comedy!

Our favorite gang of scientific nerds is back for season 8 and Et has some behind the scenes tidbits from TV's top rated comedy! Here are six things you probably didn't know about The Big Bang Theory.

6. Origins of "Bazinga" (Hint: It involves a grapefruit!)

Sheldon's trademark catchphrase originated with show writer Stephen Engel who would set up a recurring practical joke that involved taping a hallowed out grapefruit back together. "I'd open it up and [he] would say 'Bazinga," exexcutive producer Bill Prady recalled. "It was Stephen's word for gotcha." It caught on so much that not only did they put it in the show but Bazinga has officially been dubbed a species of bee.

5. Penny has a last name, we just won't ever find out what it is.

17 September 2014 8:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Never underestimate the things a son will do for his mama.

That’s the takeaway from the Extant series finale, in which both of Molly’s (for lack of a better term) “kids” play a significant role — and one of them sacrifices himself to protect her and the rest of the world.

But which non-human saved the world: the robot or the alien? Read on to find out.

17 September 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Talk about smart offspring! Both Katie Couric and Rob Lowe dropped off their eldest child to start college at Stanford on Tuesday. The television host posted a Twitter picture of her 18-year-old daughter, Carrie Monahan, saying "Move in day @Stanford! #goodluckclassof18!" In the picture, Carrie looks cute in a sundress and ready for her first year of college equipped with her nametag on a lanyard around her neck. Katie, of course, looks like one proud mama! Lowe also said goodbye to his first born when he dropped his son John Owen Lowe off as well. The actor tweeted a picture of the University's mascot saying, "One of the best, (and most disturbing) mascots ever. »

Katie Holmes To Direct All We Had

12 September 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The ranks of female film directors are about to swell a little more, as Katie Holmes confirms her plan to helm the upcoming adaptation of the debut novel from Annie WeatherwaxAll We Had. The script is being written by Josh Boone (Stuck In Love, The Fault In Our Stars), with Holmes starring and pulling producer duties alongside Jane Rosenthal (Little Fockers) and Berry Welsh (NYC 22).

The story is described as ‘wry and sharply observed’ by publishers Simon And Schuster, and centres on a mother and 13 year old daughter, who find themselves existing on the verge of poverty in small town America, after their old life implodes. Holmes will play the role of the mother, but there is no news yet on wider casting.

While this news will almost certainly be met in many quarters with derision, it is important to note that, of late, Holmes has finally begun to come into her own. »

Extant episode 12 review: Before The Blood

12 September 2014 1:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once you give in to Extant's bonkers storytelling, it's a lot of fun. Here's Holly's review of the penultimate episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.12 Before The Blood

Unlike the Seraphim, Extant this week starts to get back on course, which is to say, back off the rails. In a good way. Or, in a “we only have one more week and we’re probably getting cancelled anyway so let’s ramp this thing up to 11, y’all!” way.

Halle Berry turns in what might be her most prettily distressed performance yet for this penultimate episode of the season (and possibly series). And for good reason - Molly learns she’s the reason the Seraphim has lost contact, as she punched in the codes signalling an asteroid attack while under the influence of The Offspring. And, she’s now the only one who can go up there and fix it, »

One Direction comes back with 'Four' in November, hear new song 'Fireproof'

8 September 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Almost exactly a year after releasing its third album, “Midnight Memories,” enduring boy band One Direction returns Nov. 17 with its fourth album, the cleverly titled “Four”  (Are they in cahoots with Maroon 5, who just released “V,” their fifth album? Also, not to be confused with Huey Lewis & The News' "Fore" album) The British quintet announced the album via YouTube, as well as informed fans about the availability of  24-hour free download of “Fireproof.” Two of the band’s members, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, co-wrote the new tune with John Ryan, Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta. “Fireproof” is a mid-tempo, sweet, wistful tune, which features, per usual, the members trading lines about a love that goes on despite the odds. A drum loop propels it forward, as a nice electric guitar line gives it some heft. It doesn’t have an undeniably catchy chorus or build like “Story of My Life, »

Venice Spotlight: Ami Canaan Mann On ‘Jackie & Ryan’

31 August 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Since she is the daughter of iconic filmmaker Michael Mann, it seems surprising that director Ami Canaan Mann’s first screenplay would focus on a modern-day train-jumper musician who sneaks onto freight cars, armed with guitar and Sterno to cook and make coffee as he heads from city to city to busk on the streets and stay true to a century-old music and lifestyle.

That is the subject of Jackie & Ryan, a collision between the singer (Ben Barnes) and a married woman and former singer (Katherine Heigl) who is nearly broke after fleeing with her daughter from a loveless marriage in New York to go home to Portland with her litigious husband in hot pursuit.

This is Mann’s third film as a director, the most recent being the gritty thriller Texas Killing Fields. From the Coppolas on down, there have been enough cross-generational director success stories to make you »

Famous TV Feuds - Oral Sex, Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric

28 August 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

A new book will expose a now famous TV feud between Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric, including an oral sex accusation from Katie to Diane. Sheila Weller has a new book due out called 'The News Sorority' that will include some of the fighting between the famous women of TV news. According to Radar Online, "Weller's book claims that Couric even threw Sawyer some serious shade when she found out that her competition had beaten her to an interview." The report notes that Couric was overheard allegedly saying, "I wonder who she blew this time to get it." While the book will shed some light on TV feuds, last month Kim Kardashian ended her feud with Katie Couric. The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who lashed out at the Us chat show host last August, accusing her of being two-faced, celebrated Independence Day with the veteran journalist in the Hamptons, »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 7 - HitFix Picks

26 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 7 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon goes from "Simpsons Tall Tales" (the end of Season 12) through to "The President Wore Pearls" (the beginning of Season 15). I must admit: The "Simpsons" fans on Team HitFix are beginning to drop like flies. Josh Lasser's fandom carried through the Tomacco episode, but no further. David Lewis wrote a blurb here for "Simpsons Tall Tales," the episode he says ended his active support of the show.  Fortunately, Sepinwall and I had a pair of favorites apiece and Katie Hasty also had a preferred episode, so we've got some recommendations for you, plus a couple episodes you can avoid.  [And while I only wrote up two episodes I love, there are at least 10 more that I'll be happy to rewatch if I'm around and another 10 more that I'd enjoy having on in the background. Possibly more. This may be the worst period for "The Simpsons" thus far, but I'll always maintain that middling-to-poor "Simpsons" is still more rewatchable than nearly anything else on TV.] Check out our recommendations for Day 7 and chime in with your own favorites... Katie Hasty Recommends: "She Of Little Faith" (3 a.m.) Episode #275 Why »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 6 - HitFix Picks

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 6 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon starts with "The Simpsons Bible Stories" and carries through "Children of a Lesser Clod," going from Episode 221 through Episode 268. Again, we're not in the Golden Age anymore, but that doesn't mean that there aren't great episodes kicking around in here. We have seven top-notch recommendations and that doesn't even include the crayon-in-the-brain favorite "Homr" or the toad-licking "Save me Jeebus!" fun of "Missionary: Impossible." Actually, "Missionary: Impossible" should definitely be here, but I'd already saluted two favorites and nobody else wanted to call it. Oh well. Check out our recommendations for Day 6 and chime in with your own favorites... Daniel Fienberg Recommends: "Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner" (4 a.m.) Episode #229 Why It's a Classic: I think there was a universality to the first 10-plus seasons of "The Simpsons" that maybe has lapsed a tiny bit in recent years, but when it comes to specificity, »

Extant episodes 7 & 8: More In Heaven And Earth & Incursion

22 August 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Molly continues to have Offspring trouble in this week's Extant double bill. Here's Holly's review...

This review contains spoilers.

1.7 More In Heaven And Earth; 1.8: Incursion

In this week’s double episode, Molly becomes a mama to be reckoned with (though she needs to work on her catchphrases), John is hit harder than ever before with the implications of playing God, and... well, all kinds of stuff. Episodes seven and eight, I presume, were meant to be aired in separate weeks, but presented together, they were a lot to deal with. Not that that’s a bad thing - we were treated to probably the greatest amount of reveals to date, not to mention a staggering amount of “what have we done?” Let’s dive in.

Really, I think it’s Katie Sparks’s ghost (for lack of a better term) that weaves the discrete stories of this week’s two hours together, »

Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles

20 August 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

Alexander Skarsgard Joined The Giver to Work with Meryl Streep

Alexander Skarsgard is best known for playing True Blood's resident bad-boy vampire Eric Northman, but he found his role as the kindly Father in The Giver to be a welcome departure. "It was definitely a character I hadn't played before," the 37-year-old tells People. "Every year, when we wrap up a season, I look for things that are different from Eric Northman. "It was a real challenge because he is a character who does horrendous things, but that said, he's not a bad guy," adds Skarsgard. "He just doesn't know any better."

Natalie Morales, Al Roker On The Modern Morning Show: ‘We Have Become Very Interactive’

14 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For many people, “Today” wouldn’t be “Today” without Natalie Morales and Al Roker.

The show’s news anchor and meteorologist have been with the program since 2006 and 1996, respectively. These days, when the show comes on the air, the camera is on four people – Morales and Roker as well as Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie – not just the two leads. It’s all part of a new and broader focus on all the hosts of NBC’s four hours of toast-and-orange-juice programming that comes as the Peacock works to revamp the program to make it more competitive in the intense morning-show wars.

Below, in a lightly edited interview held in Roker’s dressing room at “Today,” the two discuss the future of the format and offer some historical perspective behind one of TV’s most competitive slugfests.

Tumble debut: Hit or miss? Twitter reactions

9 August 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

New gymnastics show Tumble made its debut on BBC One this evening (August 9), encouraging celebrities to risk injury for our viewing pleasure once again.

Before the show even made it to air, there were dislocated ankles and Mr Motivator had to pull out altogether with a dislocated knee.

But was the final product satisfying and did the celebrities deliver? Digital Spy has a round-up of the best reaction to Tumble:

So, 'Tumble' rather disappointingly is not the biopic of Mr. Tumble... pic.twitter.com/5UayFYUiNf

Call those hoops? #Tumble pic.twitter.com/r9E7IIugWH

Katie Weasel (@KatieWeasel) August 9, 2014

Tumble. Celebrity gymnastics. First event: the low bar.

Charlie Brooker (@charltonbrooker) August 9, 2014

The BBC saw Splash and thought "we want a dire show like that" and made #tumble. The result was 100x worse than Splash. Totally awful TV.
