Anti-Redskins commercial reappears during NBA Finals -- VIDEO

For several years now, some Native-American groups have protested the nickname of one of the NFL’s signature franchises: the Washington Redskins. The Kansas City Chiefs, apparently, are acceptable, but Redskins, to many Native-Americans, is a derogatory term. It’s also been the name of the Washington football franchise since 1937 and, thus, is a billion-dollar brand for the league.

Before the Super Bowl earlier this year, the National Congress of American Indians posted a video online, titled “Proud to Be,” urging the league to change Washington’s nickname. On Tuesday night, during halftime of ABC’s telecast of the NBA Finals, an abbreviated version of the two-minute clip aired in seven major markets. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black': What if Uzo Aduba played every part? -- VIDEO

Tatiana Maslany isn’t the only actor who’s prepared to take on multiple roles in a television show. She’s also not the only actor who knows how to rock a wig (or five).

In a new Funny or Die video, Orange Is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba “auditions” for various other roles on the show, including Piper, Red, Taystee, and more. There’s stretching, singing, and even a Lil’ Wayne impression of sorts. They might’ve wanted her to read for the part of Crazy Eyes, but it’s obvious Aduba could’ve taken on a number of characters.

'Pretty Little Liars': Our top six suspects for Uber 'A' revealed

We probably won’t know who Uber “A” is until Pretty Little Liars ends, whenever that might be — but in the meantime, EW did some investigating and came up with six characters we think are most likely to be the dreaded leader of the A-Team. You’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to guess which six we chose, and now it’s time for the big reveal. (Just imagine each character is slowly turning around to reveal a black hoodie.)

Shonda Rhimes tells dreams to 'suck it' in amazing Dartmouth commencement speech -- VIDEO

Shonda Rhimes knows how to write a speech; we know that much. But does she know how to deliver one of her own speeches? Though she might not like doing it, the answer is clearly “yes.”

On Sunday, Rhimes stood in front of her alma mater’s graduating class of 2014 to tell this year’s newest batch of Dartmouth alums what to expect after college. Her speech was filled with candid revelations, personal stories, and of course, a few references to the wild world of ShondaLand. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

'Murder in the First': Not just another cop show

Creating a worthwhile new cop show is tough. At this point, we’ve seen just about every possible variation within the genre, from comedies to reality shows, and every dramatic procedural in between. Plus, two of the biggest cop shows are still in rotation: Law & Order: SVU clearly knows the formula for success, and then there’s the buzzed-about True Detective, which recently raised the bar for just about every detective show from this point forward. So what do you do when everything’s been done and been done well? Spoiler: Murder in the First might have just done it. READ FULL STORY

'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
