Obama's toughest 2012 interview: Jon Stewart -- VIDEO

The Daily Show just got major props from the White House.

Obama press secretary Jay Carney told the audience at a George Washington University forum on Thursday that Jon Stewart was the president’s “toughest” interviewer during the 2012 campaign. He offered the compliment despite admitting that the Obama team wasn’t sure that the president should appear on Comedy Central in the first place.

“I remember we had some discussion during 2012 about, well, is it appropriate for the president, the sitting president and candidate, to give interviews with Jon Stewart and others,” Carney recalled. “And the answer was yes, again, because young voters we were trying to reach are more likely to watch The Daily Show than some other news shows.

'Reign' recap: For king or country

All I can say is that I’m very happy that I live in the 21st Century, and that my future husband will likely not own a castle with some sort of lock tower. And let’s be honest: Even if he did, he’d never have the power to lock me away in it (because, you know, equality and stuff).

That being said, I’m not totally mad at Francis right now. Is he looking out for France? Of course. Is he looking out for Mary? Yes. Is he still a teenager with a ridiculous amount of responsibility? Always. Let’s dig in!

Lindsay Lohan says 'sex list' is real, but there's an unfortunate reason it's public -- VIDEO

Another sad chapter in the saga of Lindsay Lohan went down when the actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday night.

Ostensibly there to promote Lindsay, which concludes its run this Sunday, Andy Cohen wasted no time playing one of the show’s most popular games with the actress — Plead the Fifth, where the guest is asked three dish-y questions and allowed to “plead the fifth” on only one. And naturally, Cohen used this opportunity to ask Lohan about the alleged “sex list” that’s been making the rounds in the tabloids. His exact question for her: “Recently, an alleged list of your alleged former conquests was leaked or published. A few of the names on the list were Ashton Kutcher, Orlando Bloom, Zac Efron, James Franco, and Justin Timberlake. Will you confirm that two of those names are [accurate]?” READ FULL STORY

What we learned when Shonda Rhimes went 'Behind the Scandalabra' -- VIDEO

Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes doesn’t want her political drama to be something you can watch while folding the laundry — she wants it to have your full attention. And Thursday’s surprise-packed season finale ensured that it would.

After the episode aired, Jimmy Kimmel turned Live! into Behind the Scandalabra – a special featuring Rhimes, who discussed the finale and gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show. Among the highlights: a blooper reel that reveals Bellamy Young’s go-to word when she messes up a line is “fart,” and that Josh Malina was once pied by a crew member while filming a scene.

'Parenthood' finale react: A house is not a home

Even though I knew it was coming, losing the Braverman house hurts, guys. It hurts bad. Let’s be honest: Next to Joel, it was arguably my favorite thing about this show. Okay, that’s taking it too far, but I am going to miss that beautiful house for a number of reasons, and I didn’t even grow up there!

That being said, losing the house was not the thing that made me cry the hardest in this episode. Nope, that award (not surprisingly) goes to Mae Whitman and Matt Lauria. At the hospital, we finally got to meet Ryan’s mother, who was not only an awful person, but also came bearing awful news. Ryan had been discharged from the Army and was heading back to Wyoming with her. And when Amber — Ryan’s non-wife (sorry, hospital) — asked him about it, he revealed just how he was injured. Spoiler: It’s not as badass as you probably thought. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol' 2014: And the Top 6 are...

This week was a nice reminder that American Idol is still a competition, as each contestant chose their song from a list of competitor’s picks. The Alabama trio of Dexter, C.J., and Jessica didn’t fare too well with their Lady Antebellum trio performance that Harry called “not good.” With only a bottom two, how did things end up for the top 7?

'Scandal': How we picked our Top 10 Twists, plus 7 honorable mentions

Scandal ends only its third season on Thursday night, and yet narrowing down the show’s many twists and turns into a top 10 list was an effort in restraint.

Take season 3′s “YOLO,” for instance: In a single hour, Huck tortures his onetime apprentice Quinn, Olivia discovers her mom is a terrorist, and the vice president murders her husband. That’s one episode. So we assembled EW’s most committed Gladiators to hash out our twisty top 10, and we think Olivia Pope would be proud of how we handled things. I brought the group a list of more than 20 of the show’s most shocking twists that we had to whittle down to an airtight top 10.

While some were simple to rule out (Do we really care that Gov. Reston murdered his wife’s lover? And is it technically a twist that Fitz has a secret house in Vermont for Olivia?), others were hard to see go. Which brings us to our honorable mentions. Below, every Scandal superfan who contributed to the list shares her favorite moment that just missed the cut: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal': We predict what's going to happen tonight

Gladiators, assemble.

The season finale of Scandal airs tonight, and naturally, we can expect plenty of crazy moments. We know the bomb goes off (Probably?) — but who’s inside the church, or what happens post-explosion is anyone’s guess. Will there be crazy hookups? Will we see another sighting of Fitz’s kids? Will we get any weird beyond-the-grave messages from dearly departed James? Below, check out some of our best guesses about what will go down tonight, and then add your own. READ FULL STORY
