'The Bachelorette' special: 10 things we learned from the never-before-seen footage

Hello, rose lovers. Let me first offer my condolences for the fact that you’re currently sitting on your couch without having experienced any of the drama that typically lights up your Mondays. You know, the moments when Marcus makes you feel awkward and as though he’s willing to tattoo Andi’s name across his forehead? Or the moments when Brian warms your soul because he genuinely sucks at reading signals? Or even the moments when someone confesses yet another sob story to add to the season of sob stories? I know you miss all of it. I do, too.

But save your tears for the cameras, y’all, because we have a clip show to digest. More specifically, we need to dissect the bits of never-before-seen footage we just watched. And yes, I’m talking about how the whole house hates Nick.

Basically, after the show decided to cut last week’s rose ceremony to talk about Eric Hill, it finally gave us an inside look at what happened after Eric’s dramatic departure. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars': Can you guess our top suspects for Uber 'A'?

Think you know who “A” could be? We do.

“A,” the scheming character on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has manipulated the Liars, caused injuries, and is an all-around terrible person. Since the show launched in 2010, multiple characters have come out as “A” helpers — Mona, Toby, Lucas – but none have revealed themselves to be Uber “A,” the real bad guy (or girl!) who controls all the “A” minions. But we have some ideas. READ FULL STORY

'Turn' season finale: The rebels are coming! The rebels are coming!

When we first met Abraham Woodhull, the saddest cabbage farmer in all of 1776 Long Island, earlier this year, he was suffering through the psychological discomfort of sitting on the political fence while his childhood friends took up arms for the patriot cause against the garrison of British soldiers in his hometown of Setauket. Ben Talmadge was a Connecticut Dragoon officer. Caleb Brewster had gone underground to disrupt British operations. And Anna Strong, the woman Abe gave up to marry his dead brother’s fiancée, was likely spitting in the redcoats’ whiskey as she served them at her husband’s pub. Slowly, Abe became the key player in what became the Culper spy ring, the secret New York intelligence operation that George Washington relied on to conduct his war strategy. But though he’s a valuable asset, Abe mostly has been a lover, not a fighter. Despite his resurgent passion for Anna, he’s perceived by most as an upstanding family man — a conflicted husband, a devoted father, the son of the town’s most prominent Loyalist — and in the season premiere, when he was suspected of murder, he could honestly claim that he’d never killed anyone before. Well, not anymore. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: '22 Jump Street' in theaters, 'Veep' finale, Jack White's new album, and more

If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.

50 Cent parodies 'Maleficent' in faux Disney trailer -- VIDEO

Maleficent, 50 Cent — it’s a match made in pun heaven.

The rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to premiere a trailer for what he jokingly called his latest project, a spoof on Disney film Maleficent featuring 50 Cent as the title villain. “This one ain’t going to no Redbox,” 50 told Kimmel.

50 Cent replaces Angelina Jolie in the clip as Maleficent — sorry, Malefiftycent — and, of course, makes sure to mention his biggest claim to fame: “I’ve been shot nine times, I’m not afraid of no little white girl.”

Funny or Die 'Reading Rainbow' spoof: Reading leads to superpowers -- VIDEO

For years, Reading Rainbow taught kids that reading could make them go twice as high as any butterfly. But according to Funny or Die’s spoof of the Reading Rainbow theme song, we now know reading can do much more: turn you into a god, give you superpowers — as the song says, you can “literally do anything” if you read a book. They do say knowledge is power…

Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter campaign last week to raise money to expand the Reading Rainbow tablet app to the Web and mobile and to fund special Reading Rainbow packages for schools. As of Wednesday, almost $3.5 million has been donated — that’s more than three times the amount Burton originally was asking for and there are still 28 days left to donate. As Burton can probably attest to, money is also power.

Blast from the past: Steve left 'Blues Clues' because he was... balding?

When Steve Burns left Nickelodeon’s Blue Clues without warning in 2002, he broke children’s hearts everywhere. Some just sobbed; some whispered that he had actually died of a drug overdose. But the explanation for his departure was hardly as dramatic in real life.
