Fans of VH1’s Hit the Floor (Mondays at 9 p.m. ET) last saw Dean Cain’s pro basketball coach Pete Davenport unconscious in his bed after another bender. Cain can’t tell you if Peter lives or dies, but he can share a great story about how his house was built as a direct response to an episode of The Brady Bunch that infuriated him. READ FULL STORY

FX has announced that the final season premiere of Sons of Anarchy will air Sept. 9 and be one hour and 45 minutes long. As EW reports in our Comic-Con Preview issue (on newsstands July 18), we’ll pick up 10 days after the tragic events of the season 6 finale. Jax will be behind bars, where he meets Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson), a white supremacist shot-caller whom he uses to expand his power base.
If seeing Jax in prison orange makes you uncomfortable, odds are you’re flashing back to season 5’s “Laying Pipe.” (Yes, the guys were wearing blue scrubs when Opie (Ryan Hurst) was killed, but they started and ended the episode in orange.) Jail has never been a safe place on SOA, which may also have you wondering if Manson’s recurring character will be long for this world. If you were signing on for Sons‘ epic final season, in which essentially everyone is expected to die, wouldn’t you hope to go out in a gloriously grisly way, too?
Let’s revisit the show’s history of prison deaths: READ FULL STORY
You can always count on a Real Housewife having something to say about someone else—which is why, when we put six costars of Hulu’s spoof The Hotwives of Orlando in the Hot Seat, we asked them to rate each other’s answers. Watch Casey Wilson, Andrea Savage, Angela Kinsey, Dannah Phirman, Tymberlee Hill, and Danielle Schneider judge each other below while they reveal their Real Housewives love guru, most prized pop culture possession, mood music, and go-to drink to throw in someone’s face.

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunion, move over. The Facts of Life alums Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Kim Fields (Tootie) have reteamed to play wedding coordinators in a Hallmark Channel original movie, For Better or For Worse, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m. ET. When Whelchel stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw and Dan Snierson asked her to sing the Facts of Life theme song. And when she failed to remember more lyrics than Shaw, they asked her to compensate by sharing a secret from the set. It turns out George Clooney wasn’t that memorable of a kisser. READ FULL STORY
With The Night Shift having already scored a second season on NBC, co-stars Jill Flint and Eoin Macken will be spending a lot more time together. As we discovered when they visited EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, they still have a lot to learn about one another, especially when it comes to celeb crushes and music preferences.

After Madeline Brewer finished her stint as Tricia on the first season of Orange is the New Black, she auditioned for eight months before landing the new, non-supernatural role of graphic artist Miranda Cates on Hemlock Grove‘s second season (now available on Netflix). “Weird things happen to her that involve Peter and Roman,” Brewer says. “I wanted her to become a vampire-werewolf hybrid, because I think that would then immediately bump me up to the coolest character on the show, but that didn’t happen. I’ll just have to stick with being a normal person.”
The character has nine tattoos, which took two and a half hours to apply. “As an artist, Miranda had designed them herself. One of her tattoos is of particular interest to anyone who plans on watching the entire season. There’s a bit of foreshadowing going on there,” she teases. (Miranda also has a nose ring, which is Brewer’s in real life.) READ FULL STORY
Sons of Anarchy fans expecting to read another colorful rant from creator Kurt Sutter about the FX drama’s lack of Emmy nominations may have been disappointed today. Not because the show actually did earn a nod (though Sutter, Bob Thiele Jr., and Noah Gundersen are nominated in the Original Music and Lyrics category for penning the song “Day is Gone,” which was used over the emotional montage at the end of the season-six finale). But because the guest column Sutter penned for NikkiFinke.com on how it feels to be snubbed in the major categories, again, only uses the C-word once. And that’s in reference to his prior reputation for losing loudly: “I’m halfway through my second paragraph and I haven’t called anyone at AMC a money-whoring, talentless c–t yet. So, that’s progress, right?” he writes. READ FULL STORY
