Anne Hathaway debuts as a lounge singer on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Let’s start with the good: Anne Hathaway sounded great when she stopped by the Tonight Show Tuesday to sing old-timey versions of hip hop songs, accompanied by Jimmy Fallon on piano. (Like an earlier installment of this series featuring Ariana Grande, the bit was technically introduced as “Broadway versions” of rap tunes — but that just seems inaccurate.)

The not-so-good: The bit maybe isn’t exactly…funny? It’s too bad for Hathaway, who could use a silly viral video right about now. That said, elsewhere on the show she gave a charming interview, explaining to Fallon how those pictures where she looks like she’s drowning in the ocean were blown entirely out of proportion, thanks to paparazzi.

We’re all guilty here, guys. Watch the Princess of Genovia perform below:

Jon Hamm mocks '90s dating show appearance on 'Late Late Show' -- VIDEO

Once upon a time, Jon Hamm competed on a dating show — and lost. But although it happened back in 1995, the internet only found out about the incident recently. So when Craig Ferguson interviewed the Mad Men star on The Late Late Show Tuesday, he naturally used the opportunity to find out more about young Hamm’s foray into dating shows.

Seth Rogen refuses to phone in his 'Saturday Night Live' promos -- VIDEO

Seth Rogen hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend for the third time – so he knows his way around Studio 8H and the whole promo routine. Aidy Bryant… perhaps less so. See, it’s her first time filming SNL promos, and she might be a little nervous… or neurotic… or power-mad. She’s not about to let the Neighbors star phone this one in, especially when this week is really all about her.

Watch the clip below, which features a bonus description of Zac Efron’s haunting beauty. READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD' react: Hail Hydra!

Agents-of-SHIELD-react.jpg

How about that, agents? How. About. That.

“Turn, Turn, Turn” ended a little more than an hour ago, and my head is still reeling from all those reveals. And that kiss! And so much more! Where do I even begin? I suppose I’ll start by saying that first of all, if you’ve come here having not seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, you should probably be warned that a minefield of spoilers lies ahead. I’m not kidding. The stars and creators teased that the events of Marvel’s most recent movie would tie in to their show in a very big way, and boy, did they ever. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has tried to do tie-ins before — sort of with the pilot, when they made a lot of passing references to The Avengers, and then more notably with Thor 2, the previous big Phase 2 tentpole. But Winter Soldier is the first series tie-in that’s actually felt meaningful and relevant, no doubt due to the fact that unlike otherworldly Asgard, S.H.I.E.L.D. plays a very big and relatable role in both the television series and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or, should I say, played. READ FULL STORY

'Mindy Project' recap: 'I don't know why, but I still want to hit it'

Say it ain’t so, Mindy Project!

Last week’s double header of Mindy was all about secretly kissing one Danny Castellano – complete with a Bridget Jones-worthy ending that made everybody swoon. And last night, things seemed to be moving along right on schedule with our 2014 Mr. Darcy. A happy Mindy announced via voiceover that Danny was sleeping at her place and that dating a co-worker? It kind of ruled.

The opening moments/montage – that featured both Mindy and, once he caught on, Danny coming up with work excuses to bring the other into their office so they could make out — were some of the sweetest and romantic the show has tried. Mindy blissed out with a new guy really is so stinkin’ adorable. Of course, things can go south fast – especially when one person (ahem, Danny) wants to keep a relationship a secret. Have teen dramas (not to mention real life) taught us anything? As Seth Cohen once said to Summer Roberts: “Acknowledge me now or lose me forever.” You know Mindy watched that.  READ FULL STORY

Yeah, Kate Mulgrew doesn't really think the sun revolves around the Earth

(Wait, what?)

So here’s the situation: On Monday, word broke that Kate Mulgrew — best known these days for playing Red on Orange Is the New Black – is the narrator of an upcoming documentary called The Principle. Spoiler alert: The principle is that contrary to Copernicus and, you know, centuries of documented science, the sun revolves around the Earth.

This is notable for several reasons, including but not limited to these:

'The Voice': Who's on our Top 20 power list?

If you’ve stuck with the sixth season of The Voice, you may be incredibly relieved to know that we’ve finally arrived at the Top 20, narrowing down some less-than-stellar talent to the best of the best. Or, most of the best. In truth, there are still some stragglers who have yet to prove themselves, but the playoff rounds (beginning April 8) should weed out the less impressive folks and leave us with a pretty nifty Top 12, worthy of performing in front of the voting public.

Before the next round begins, here’s the breakdown for this season’s first power list. Two more players from each team will be knocked off before the live shows begin, so logic takes precedence here. It’s worth pointing out that Team Shakira’s players barely crack the top ten, while the other three coaches each stand a chance of winning.

Check it out, and yell at me if you disagree. I can take it. READ FULL STORY

Korean dramas: A beginner's guide

Why are more and more Americans falling under the sudsy spell of South Korean dramas? One theory: These shows tend to come in self-contained 16- to 20-episode seasons, making them easily digestible. Another: If you don’t speak Korean, watching one demands your full attention (subtitles!), meaning you get sucked in that much more quickly.

And then there are the dramas themselves — endearingly theatrical and kooky, with a sweetness that can be tough to find in grittier American fare. “Their portrayal of love is a little more PG,” says Jacqueline Sia, senior content manager of massive international TV library DramaFever. “Korean dramas can spend 16 episodes getting to the point where the leads kiss.”

Want in? Simply start with any of these conveniently categorized gateway dramas. Anieyo (translation: You’re welcome). READ FULL STORY

Billy Eichner pimps out Paul Rudd for a dollar -- VIDEO

Paul-Rudd-and-Billy-Eichner.jpg

Billy Eichner is one of New York’s finest reverse-pimps. In the next episode of Billy on the Street, he drags Paul Rudd through Manhattan and offers random strangers $1 to have sex with the adorable, ageless wonder. Don’t get too excited, pervs. This is hypothetical sex — you know, the worst kind.

Rudd is a good sport, but Eichner, who keeps stealing scenes on Parks and Recreation, is a riot. His boisterous behavior, his prohibition on hugs and haggling, and his unending commentary make this segment one of his show’s best ever.

Late Night Highlight: People get hurt when they stare at Christina Hendricks

As Beyoncé sings: “Pretty Hurts.”

No one may know that better than Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who is no stranger to everyone — seriously, pretty much everyone — thinking she’s quite attractive (and, you know, a very talented actress). But all that glitters isn’t gold: Hendricks stopped by Conan last night, where Conan O’Brien asked her what it’s like to experience men getting all “silly and dopey” when they see her. Turns out, it can be a bit of a hazard.
