Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' finale

Chris-Harrison.jpg

I want to start off by saying congratulations to Andi and Josh on their engagement. I couldn’t be happier for them.

That said, this live After the Final Rose special was easily one of the more intense hours of television I’ve ever hosted. I want to pick this story up about a month and a half ago. That was the first time I sat down with a producer who let me know that Nick was still very much interested in Andi and he wanted to talk with her. Nick called me and we talked for a bit about how he was doing, and he let me know his feelings and how he really wanted to get some closure with Andi. At the time Andi was in Mexico and she was just beginning her new relationship with Josh, so she didn’t think it was the appropriate time. I understood both sides in this case. Nick essentially had a Band-Aid just ripped off of him and there was no closure whatsoever. He was being extremely cool about the whole thing and his approach was kind and respectful, not angry or vengeful. Because of that when he showed up to talk to Andi at the Men Tell All I sat down to talk to him. There was obviously a lot more to the conversation that you didn’t get a chance to see, but you got the overall idea. But one thing that wasn’t shown is how I explained to him that although I respected his emotions and thought he was handling this very professionally I made it very clear that I respect Josh and his relationship with Andi.

What does an episode of 'Friends' look like without any jokes?

Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.

The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying.

'Community' at Comic-Con: New episodes coming 'probably sometime after Christmas'

TV Guide Magazine hosted the panel “Greendale Forever” in honor of the impending sixth season of Community on Yahoo TV. The panel included Community creator-mascot Dan Harmon, longtime writer Chris McKenna, and cast members Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, and Jim Rash, plus Dino “Star Burns” Stamatopoulos.

The ebullient panel didn’t reveal very much about the upcoming season, although Harmon did announce that he wanted to adhere to the same basic Community episode structure even though the show is no longer bound by broadcast restrictions. “My philosophy is: Attempt to make the same show, and let the lack of boundaries kind of make themselves felt, instead of just going, ‘We can make the episode 49 minutes long, and say the f-word the whole time.'” READ FULL STORY

Who will die in 'Sons of Anarchy's final season? The polls are open

Sons-of-Anarchy.jpg

The third teaser for Sons of Anarchy‘s final season is titled “Fear the Reaper” (watch it below), and makes it clear that Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is the one people need to be scared of—and also that the law will be watching. As creator Kurt Sutter has said, Jax’s singular purpose for most of the season is to avenge Tara’s death. And as Sons fans know, retaliation—particularly when it’s misdirected—leads to more violence.

It’s a running joke among the show’s cast and fans alike that everyone will die by the time the credits roll on the series finale. But what if we asked you to seriously predict the fate of 15 characters?

Hit the polls below. Results will be used in Sunday’s Sons of Anarchy panel at Comic-Con (12:30 p.m. PT in Hall H), moderated by EW‘s Mandi Bierly.

UPDATE: The results are at the bottom of our panel recap.

Here's how 'Supernatural' star Misha Collins is breaking world records

Supernatural‘s Misha Collins spends most of the year fighting demons (and sometimes angels) in a trench coat. And when Supernatural returns for it’s tenth season, Collins promises that between trying to find Dean and solving the problem of his own fading grace, Castiel will once again have his hands full. But until then, the 39-year-old actor is keeping busy by breaking world records alongside Orlando Jones and William Shatner. But why?

Well, because he can. August 2-9 will mark the fourth annual GISHWHES, the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, which Collins launched after being inspired by an annual scavenger hunt he participated in when he was an undergraduate at the University of Chicago. “It used to be a very academically rigorous and a very socially dismal place,” Collins says. “The only social interaction we had was in the basement of the library where there was a little coffee shop. We didn’t even have a student center. There was a study commissioned at the University of Chicago of the top 300 universities, and we ranked 300 out of 300 for social life. [We were] the very, very worst—under the Naval Academy, I might add. [But] we had this one bright spot on the calendar, which was a campus-wide scavenger hunt. Everyone basically stopped going to classes and stopped doing anything and just participated in the scavenger hunt for four days. And it was just so much fun.” READ FULL STORY

See The Rock join Jimmy Fallon for an old-school workout

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by The Tonight Show to promote his new film Hercules, Jimmy Fallon asked about Johnson’s workout routine. From there, Johnson and Fallon put on some killer wigs, reenacted classic workout VHS tapes, and even perfected the art of the “squat thrust” as The Fungo Brothers.

As the Fungo Brothers always say, “You gotta hustle for the muscle!” READ FULL STORY

Celebrate Batman Day with rare set photos from the 60s TV series

Today is Batman Day, the one day of the year DC Comics has set aside to commemorate the Caped Crusader’s 75th anniversary. Over those 75 years, Batman has taken on a variety of interpretations both in comics and pop culture, from Frank Miller’s definitive Year One to the lauded 90s animated series.

However, the first to truly capture the nation’s imagination was the 1966 television show starring Adam West. To celebrate the character’s milestone birthday, browse through Life‘s series of rare set photos that went unpublished in the magazine’s famous March 1966 cover story on the show. It’s a great peek at the making of a classic show that defined the character in the public consciousness for 23 years. READ FULL STORY
