Is Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke Replacing Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms?

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

According to ET, the long-running Lifetime reality series is replacing troubled star Abby Lee Miller with former Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke. Dance Moms representatives wouldn't confirm that Burke is replacing Miller, saying that filming on the current season ended last week and Cheryl Burke will appear on future episodes when Miller is unavailable.



ABC Cancels Time After Time

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

In an unfortunate turn of events, ABC has canceled the time-traveling drama series Time After Time, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on the 1979 novel Time After Time, the ABC drama starred Freddie Stroma (UnREAL) as a young H.G. Wells who follows his friend John Stevenson, a surgeon revealed to be the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper, to modern-day America via a time machine.



The Walking Dead: 7 Amazing Neganisms We'll Be Quoting Long After He's Gone

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

With his slimming leather jacket and uncomfortably handsome good looks, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has been the villain we hate to love and love to hate ever since he made his big debut on The Walking Dead. Sure, he viciously murdered several of our favorite characters, and he made Carl (Chandler Riggs) both cry and sing in the span of five minutes (the jury's still out on which was more brutal), but what can we say? The big baddie of Season 7 has had some of the most memorable lines in the entire history of the show, and no matter what happens to him when the season finale airs on Sunday, we're going to be quoting his most unique turns of phrase long after Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang have (hopefully) sent him packing. Harsh words for Father Gabriel here -- although, in Negan's defense, this is really one of those times when he just had the nerve to say what everyone else was thinking. Pee Pee Pants City is the original habitat of the rare creature known as the cold-sacked warlock. Hey, Rick, favor to ask: would you mind not killing Negan when you catch him? I want to see if he's free to do a reading at my grandmother's funeral. Has Eugene, in his brief tenure at the Sanctuary, invented a new form of scrotal alchemy? Is the harness literal, or metaphorical?



New Girl Revealed Schmidt's First Name in Hilarious Fashion

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

New Girl isn't a mystery show, and yet its six seasons have contained an unanswered question: what is Schmidt's (Max Greenfield) real name? Schmidt probably only became the successful businessman he is today by casting off his old name, which is associated with his humiliating childhood. This was the best name reveal since Mac (Rob McElhenney) from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's real name turned out to be Ronald McDonald. [...] like Mac, if Schmidt starts packing on mass, it'll be cause for concern.



The Flash: Did We Just Find Out Season 4's Big Bad?

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Like I said then, Thinker's a bit of a deep cut, a villain from the 1940s who used a psionic device called a thinking cap to give himself mental abilities, like telekinesis, to fight Jay Garrick's Flash. [...] there's the fact that the Arrowverse has played this particular name-dropping card before. [...] executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed at PaleyFest recently that Flash would not be doing a speedster villain next season. [...] though, is that Thinker offers up a whole different sort of threat to Team Flash. When you add on that there have been a few different versions of Thinker to draw on, including an accidentally-created artificial intelligence, there are a couple of different ways to play Thinker on the show, including having him start out as human, get defeated somehow, and then go on to to become something more ephemeral and harder to catch as an AI. Or, Flash could adapt Thinker's big story when he, along with a couple of other Golden Age Flash villains, trapped Keystone City in a time bubble, effectively erasing it from existence.



Sarah Paulson Really Wants to Play Kellyanne Conway on American Horror Story

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

After Ryan Murphy revealed that American Horror Story's seventh season would be inspired by the 2016 presidential election, fans immediately began dream-casting their favorite AHS stars as real-life political figures -- but they weren't the only ones! Actress Sarah Paulson has her own idea of who she'd like to play in the new season. First of all, where is she? [...] Mike Pence is really scary in a sort of smiley mask.



The Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cast Reunited and Gave Us All the Feels

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

In honor of the seminal show's 20th anniversary on March 10, Entertainment Weekly reunited Buffy's entire cast to reminisce and make our hearts burst with joy. Executive producer Joss Whedon and stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter, Amber Benson, Seth Green, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenberg, Kristine Sutherland, Alexis Denisof, and Michelle Trachtenberg all gathered together for a joint photo shoot and interview. Beyond just reflecting on how well everyone has aged, the cast also looked back on why Buffy connected so strongly with audiences when it premiered in 1997, and why it continues to hold such a strong place in viewers' hearts today.

Santa Clarita Diet Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Netflix announced the show's Season 2 renewal with a video in which the number "2" gets spelled out in body parts. The zombie series, whose 10-episode first season premiered in February, stars Barrymore and Olyphant as Sheila and Joel, a humdrum suburban couple whose life (and death) spirals out of control when Sheila turns into an undead creature with a rapacious appetite for human flesh.



The Mindy Project to End After Season 6

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Sex and the City lasted for, what, six seasons with 10 episodes each? creator and star Mindy Kaling told Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news. On a more serious note, the actress and executive producer explained that Mindy (Kaling) and her co-workers have gone through so much since the show launched five years ago on Fox, and that the series has simply reached its natural conclusion. The Mindy Project's fifth season finale ended with Mindy marrying her boyfriend Ben (Bryan Greenberg), and the final season will explore whether marriage really is what Mindy wants right now.



Flip or Flop Reportedly Canceled

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

The production company would typically be filming Season 8 right now, but Flip or Flop allegedly hasn't shot anything since wrapping on Season 7 earlier this year. The report isn't surprising in the least, given the tumultuous divorce of the show's stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa -- which involved a gun, an alleged affair and rumors of abusive behavior.



Exclusive Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Reid Calls Shaw's Bluff and He Can't Handle It

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

After being pressured to run contraband on last week's Criminal Minds lest he get his ass kicked again, Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) makes a game-changing move on Wednesday's episode. Normally, we'd be a little more concerned about Reid, but you know he means business with this death stare. Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS.



Bones Series Finale: Did Fans Get the Ending They Deserved?

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

The forensic anthropology procedural blew up a lot of things in its final two episodes, but it ended in the best way it could for its devoted fans -- with Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) hand in hand walking off into the night. [...] Brennan and Booth found peace with exactly who and where they are. [...] Bones tied a nice bow on its historic run. The main characters reached a final conclusion that allowed fans to imagine them walking off into the sunset and all of the demons they were fighting over the course of the series were put to rest. While there has already been talk of a Bones reboot in the future, the series didn't have to blow that door open and leave fans hanging and desperate for more answers. [...] there are fans who wanted to see the procedural continue until Brennan ended up in a nursing home, but in reality this is the most gratifying farewell they could have received.



NCIS: Do Torres and Quinn Have a Romantic History?

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Torres says he certainly doesn't mind that rumor going around, even though he never tried to get with Quinn, while Quinn notes "If I had spent any amount of time underneath that man I'd be crushed to death by his ego." Gibbs (Mark Harmon) assigns him to keep an eye on a disgruntled veteran who's a key witness in the case of the week (a murdered Marine in DC), but he doesn't make a good case for himself when the man escapes under his watch. Once he and Gibbs track the witness down, Vance admits that the reason he's throwing his hat in the ring for high-risk assignments is because his parents died when he was 3, so he doesn't know what it's like to have people who care about him -- i.e., no one would be upset if he got killed in the line of duty. Gibbs gives him a very Gibbs-like lecture about picking up the pieces after a horrible loss and notes that you can choose your own family members after losing everything.



The Fosters Breaks Ground Again With Transgender Romance

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 05:00:00 UT

Fans have been expecting the two to become a real couple ever since Aaron kissed Callie on the beach following their coffee shop meet-cute, but it took some breaking and entering, a car accident, some other relationship breakups and a trip to Los Angeles to bring the two lovebirds together. Despite the trials and tribulations it took for Callie and Aaron to get to this point, the new storyline is another groundbreaking move for the Freeform show that has consistently pushed boundaries for better inclusion and representation of the LGBTQ community. Since that opening episode, Callie has had to adjust her own point of view about LGBTQ stereotypes and has become one of the most open-minded people on the show. Cole also eventually developed feelings for Callie, but it never turned into an actual romance. A trip to Los Angeles for Aaron's father's birthday and a subsequent explosive family dinner helped push their bond to a new level. The date has been set for Callie's trial and their romance might be cut short if she ends up being sent to prison for the hit-and-run accident she was involved in at the beginning of the season.
