Dave Erickson, the Fear the Walking Dead showrunner who developed the series with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, will leave at the end of its upcoming Season 3 to develop new projects at AMC, the network announced Friday.

NCIS: LA: Kensi Is Going Undercover With a Twist -- Literally

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Los Angeles' Kensi (Daniela Ruah) may very well be finally getting the proposal from Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) she's earned by the end of this season, but either way, she's most definitely going to be getting her groove on. In "From Havana with Love," airing April 9, the fierce field agent known for her forensic acumen and combat expertise is going to be showcasing a totally different set of skills for a new case. Lou Ferrigno Jr. will star as Victor Larmont -- a man who suspects his wife is selling Navy secrets to terrorists. [...] dancing is totally in Ruah's wheelhouse; she won Portugal's version of Dancing with the Stars in 2006.



Hugh Grant Dances to "Hotline Bling" in This Love Actually 2 Clip

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

A clip from the highly-anticipated Love Actually reunion that was filmed for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day special in Britain has made its way to the interwebs via The Guardian, and it stars the Prime Minister attempting to recreate his "Jump For My Love" dance from the original film -- except this time he's swishing those hips to Drake's "Hotline Bling." The poor guy ends up falling down the stairs of his Downing Street home, which makes that side swivel move across the doorway a bit too painful.



Melissa McCarthy Explains the Genesis of Her Sean Spicer Impression

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

A good friend of McCarthy's, Kent Sublette, is a head writer on SNL, and upon hearing that McCarthy happened to be in New York, he rang her up and asked if she wanted to come in and do Spicer for the sketch show. Thankfully, that "WHAT!?" turned into a yes, and soon McCarthy was donning a bald cap and screaming like a petulant child.



The Walking Dead: What's Gonna Go Down at Oceanside?

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

The Walking Dead only visited this all-female colony once, way back in November, in what was at the time the least-watched new episode of The Walking Dead since Season 3 (it's since been replaced by "Say Yes"). In that episode, "Swear," Tara (Alanna Masterson) washed up on Oceanside's shore after getting separated from the still-missing Heath (Corey Hawkins). The Saviors don't know they're there, and Oceanside's leader Natania (Deborah May) wants to keep it that way. Tara decided to leave and head back to Alexandria, and on the road home, she realized the Oceansiders escorting her out were gong to kill her. Tara didn't tell for a long time, but eventually the need for guns in the fight against Negan became too pressing and she told Rick (Andrew Lincoln).



Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Teases a Big Jaime-Cersei-Brienne Development

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays kingslaying sister-schtupper Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, gave a telling non-answer when the reporter presented him with a popular fan theory. The theory? Coster-Waldau also almost revealed something from Season 7 before stopping himself, saying that Cersei will have another suitor besides him. Oh, and he thought that melting-ice-block premiere date reveal was stupid, too.



King of Queens Reunion! Leah Remini to Guest-Star in Kevin Can Wait Season Finale

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Leah Remini will reunite with her King of Queens hubby Kevin James in the two-part season finale of his freshman sitcom Kevin Can Wait, CBS announced Friday. Remini will play Vanessa Cellucci, a cop who goes undercover with Kevin (James) as husband and wife after he agrees to come out of retirement for one more assignment. Scientology and the Aftermath for a second season last week, and the actress recently joined the pilot for NBC's adaptation of What About Bob?



Riverdale May Go Supernatural in Season 2

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Season 1 of the CW's Archie comics reimagining Riverdale is a teenage murder mystery. According to showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale may get even Twin Peaks-ier in Season 2 by introducing... In 2013, Aguirre-Sacasa wrote an Archie comics spin-off called Afterlife with Archie, where Sabrina the Teenage Witch brought Jughead's dog back from the dead, but the dog was a zombie that bit Jughead, who started a zombie outbreak that overtook Riverdale. [...] there was Cheryl Blossom's (Madelaine Petsch) vision of her brother Jason (Trevor Stines) as an undead being, and a winking reference to the "dark pagan gods" that brought about the zombie apocalypse in Afterlife.



The Walking Dead: Here's How Rick Can Beat Negan

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Without his trusty barbed bat, the only thing badass about Negan is that black leather motorcycle jacket. While grabbing that bat from him won't be happening anytime soon (we're likely to see him drenching it in walker guts and infecting people with it first) it's his primary source of power. Snatch it from him when he's alone and otherwise unarmed, and he's got nothing. The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.

Today Is Jim Parsons' Birthday, Except He's Been the Same Age for 10 Years

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is 44 today, but you never would have known that unless I told you, because Jim Parsons looks exactly the same as he did when he started The Big Bang Theory in 2007. Seriously, look at these photos and tell me what year they're from (the fact that Sheldon's wardrobe never changes contributes to the agelessness, to be fair). Incredible. The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS. Other Links From TVGuide.com The Big Bang TheoryJim Parsons



Chicago Fire Exclusive: Is Someone Targeting Innocent Drivers?

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

The Casting JonBenet Trailer Is Here to Keep You up at Night

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Netflix unveiled the full -- and completely unsettling -- trailer for Casting JonBenet Thursday and, well, good luck sleeping tonight. Casting JonBenet, which is billed as a "documentary hybrid," explores the death of the six-year-old beauty queen who was killed in her Colorado home in 1996. Netflix has released clips previously, but the full trailer provides a greater understanding of how chilling and surreal the actual film will be, as it weaves between spooky reenactments and footage of real people.



Seth Meyers Warns Trump to Stop Stealing from SNL

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

If you thought Seth Meyers was hard on Donald Trump before, the Late Night host joked that "it is on," now that POTUS stooped to a new low: stealing Chevy Chase's iconic "Weekend Update" introduction from Saturday Night Live. Meyers, a longtime "Weekend Update" anchor himself, was referencing Trump's recent interview with Time, in which the Commander-in-Chief said: "Hey look, in the meantime, I guess, I can't be doing so badly, because I'm president, and you're not."

The Blacklist: Redemption: Tom Just Made a Huge Mistake

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

After a German immigration official kills 64 refugees by releasing nerve gas into a room where they're waiting to gain asylum, Halcyon intervenes. Tom (Ryan Eggold) and Solomon (Edi Gathegi) are tasked with posing as flight attendants in order to stop a plane from being hijacked and therefore prevent more nerve gas from ending up in the hands of terrorists. The operation is a success, but not before Tom nearly dies in a plane crash and Solomon impromptu sky-dives to stop one of the hijackers. Howard (Terry O'Quinn) has asked him to break into Scottie's safe and steal a file folder, so that Howard can get the "keyword" he needs to help him decrypt a message he intercepted from Scottie's communications. Earlier in the episode, we see Scottie in bed with Trevor (Dan Amboyer), explaining that she's the one who found a mysterious line item called Whitehall in the company budget, and it was when she started asking Howard about it that he started acting paranoid and unstable -- which eventually prompted her to remove him from the board.

Pretty Little Liars: How Will Aria React to Ezra and Nicole's Reunion?

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Ezra (Ian Harding) and Nicole (Rebecca Breeds) reunited on international television with Aria (Lucy Hale) watching hopelessly in Rosewood at the end of Pretty Little Liars' Season 7 mid-season finale. The intimate embrace and kiss put a huge question mark over where Aria and Ezra's engagement stands going into the final ten episodes of the series. [...] we decided to ask Ezra himself how things are looking when Pretty Little Liars returns.

American Crime's Benito Martinez Explains Why Luis' Son Came to the U.S.

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

American Crime unveils Episode 3 of its third, most sprawling and (so far) best season Sunday. [...] the most gripping story is easily Luis' realization that his farm "job" is essentially indentured servitude, and how hard it'll be to find his son against such massive odds. In our chat ahead of Sunday's episode, Martinez explains why Luis took off in search of his child, and previews a scene that begins to explain why Teo took off in the first place. American Crime's excellent Season 3 is a glimpse into red state blues Why has Luis been willing to make such a risky trip? John [Ridley, creator] is a master at crafting characters and their needs and making sure that their need is paramount. The translation is, "You know you're just hurting your mom's feelings." [...] it's just a snippet of a full conversation where he's telling the family that he has to make a journey to the States because he wants to be a chef and he wants to have a better life. [...] that's what he's telling us at the dinner table that he has to go try this. [...] my wife is crying and I'm upset and the whole challenge is to find out what happens. Because that conversation, that argument is the last conversation they had. To your point about telling your son, "Look at where you live," it looks like the family was doing reasonably well -- they're eating dinner, everyone's dressed and clean -- so the life that had in Mexico was pretty decent, is that right? [...] it ain't New York City, where you can be a chef in the finest restaurant. What Regina's character is trying to do is have her own truth within that and try to help these kids on the street. Whether we're an immigrant or a person who can live in their parents' house anymore. The sacrifice it must be, the physical toll it must take. The surprising thing about it -- and I've worked with the Farmer's Union out here in California before, been to award shows with them, and I'm very aw



Lucifer's Second Season Is Getting Shorter...With a Devilish Twist

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Get the scoop on your favorite returning Spring shows Since Lucifer has already been given the green light for Season 3 -- and got the heads up early on -- fans shouldn't worry that this is an indication of the show's success. The network has one hour less of primetime TV real estate than the other broadcast networks because it shares its 10 o'clock hour with local news affiliates.



Grey's Anatomy: See What Martin Henderson Has to Say About Those Riggs-Derek Comparisons

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

[...] that Henderson's character, Nathan Riggs, and Derek's widow Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) have dabbled in romance and seem to be heading towards a full-blown relationship, Henderson is, predictably, facing some comparisons to the character fans knew as Dr. McDreamy -- and not all of them are favorable. For me, it's just fun to sort of be a part of that and see the audience grapple with it. Because I think even the people that sort of go, 'Oh, I hate Riggs,' it's a testament to how much they love the show and obviously how much they love Derek.



Riverdale: The 8 Best Theories on Jason Blossom's Killer

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

When ABC released the first image for Time After Time -- the new drama in which H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma) chases Jack the Ripper (Josh Bowman) into modern-day Manhattan -- it took a while for fans to recognize the stars. The typically clean-shaven UnREALand Revenge alums were not only sporting some very slick period duds, but some very unexpected facial hair.
