In a heartwarming publicity stunt, ABC is paying for New York City couples to get married to promote Cam and Mitchell’s upcoming wedding on the season finale of ABC’s Modern Family.

Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson went on Good Morning America Monday morning to talk their fictional nuptials, which will be the center of the series’ final two episodes of the season, and to announce that ABC will be covering all marriage licenses at the New York City courthouse Monday.

'Revenge' season 3 finale: Where do we go from here? And other burning questions

Question one: Is Revenge back?

Question two: Are we destined to ask this same question at the end of every Revenge finale — at least, every finale that follows season 1?

Will 'Grey's Anatomy' kill Cristina Yang? -- POLL

JUKEBOX-GREYS-ANATOMY.jpg

Grey’s Anatomy fans have known for a while now that season 10 would be Sandra Oh’s last, but it wasn’t until last week’s episode that we realized how she was going to leave. Or at least, we thought we realized how she was going to leave.

After last night’s tear-filled interaction with Owen, I find myself doubting if she can really leave him. But more than anything, the promo for the finale terrifies me. The promo teases: “The goodbye you never expected,” which is either just talking generally about Cristina Yang leaving the show, or perhaps Cristina’s exit isn’t going to be what we expected.

'Agent Carter': Espionage, drama, and more -- why we're excited about ABC's new series

Stand back, world – Marvel is taking over the universe.

On the heels of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s renewal for a second season last night, ABC also announced the official pick-up of Agent Carter: a series centered around the popular Captain America character played by Hayley Atwell, based on the one-shot of the same name first released on the Iron Man 3 DVD last year.

True to form, Marvel is keeping the details of the project under tight lock and key. But until we can confirm more at ABC’s Upfront presentation next week, here’s what we do know: the series will most likely be a short order (13 episodes or less) that would air as a “bridge” during the hiatus period of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It will be set in 1946, with Peggy working for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) while also fielding covert missions for Howard Stark during the earliest days of S.H.I.E.L.D. (No word on specific casting, but it’s rumored that Dominic Cooper will be a recurring guest star.) It will focus on Peggy’s role as a woman in a post WWII world, when the men are returning from war and she is finding herself highly marginalized, while attempting to deal with the aftermath of her love, Steve Rogers. Should the series be successful, it will most likely continue as a short order, similar to the Mad Men model of moving forward a year or two in time with each new season (likely ending or leading up to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s complete formation.)

So why should we be excited about Agent Carter? (Aside from the obvious answer of getting to watch the amazingly talented Hayley Atwell own our TV screens once a week.) A female protagonist, a period setting, and an open field of storytelling are only some of the qualities that the series offers, all of which promise to help make it successful. In the wake of our enthusiasm, we break them down below. [WARNING: Slight spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier to follow.]

'Agents of SHIELD' react: I get by with a little help from my friends

I kind of want to make a list of all the things I loved about this episode. Like Maria Hill, and the Skye/Ward moments, and Lola finally getting some use, and did I mention Maria Hill? Take a page from Coulson and buckle up, because we’ve got two episodes left this season, and if tonight was any indication, we’re in for a hell of a ride. READ FULL STORY

ABC's 'Black Box': The craziest, least-crazy show on TV

Oh boy. Guys, I do not know what to do with Black Box, ABC’s new medical drama. (Yes, the show is about neither airplanes nor experimental theater; yes, its protagonist’s last name is “Black”; yes, this is a titling convention that must be stopped immediately.)

When its logical left brain is in control, Black Box is an utterly conventional, thoroughly dull entry in the over-saturated “Insufferable Genius” genre. But when the show’s crazy right brain takes over, it’s a jaw-dropping, over-the-top campfest with true potential to fill the Smash-sized hole in your (read: my) heart.

Neither version is good, per se, but one is at least interesting. Which, though, will prevail in the long run? Let’s examine the show’s chart (medical reference!) to find out. READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD' react: A little night music

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has really been on a roll these past few episodes, and “The Only Light in the Darkness” was no exception. It was an episode that I had been looking forward to for awhile thanks to the inclusion of Coulson’s mysterious cellist, but after last week’s development, I was also super curious to see what would happen now that Ward had rejoined the team with his Hydra cover intact.

Who's the biggest monster on 'Scandal': Rowan or Cyrus?

Talk about a clash of the chatty titans.

Scandal isn’t short on unsavory characters. In this universe, torture set against a bouncy Motown tune is de rigueur; each episode features at least two or three or nine betrayals. At this point in the show’s run, practically everyone but baby Teddy Grant has killed somebody, either directly or indirectly. Still, there’s no denying that the show’s two most ruthless, dastardly, outright evil characters are White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene and CIA bigwig Rowan Pope.

Thursday night’s season finale confirmed that neither of these men is to be trifled with, unless you want to be blown up and/or stuck with a rare strain of meningitis on live television. But which is actually the least redeemable presence on Scandal? For that, we’ll have to consider each villain’s history in a series of categories. READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD': New initiative art teases team divide -- EXCLUSIVE

Agents-of-SHIELD.jpg

Last week, EW exclusively debuted the first in a series of new art from Marvel and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven.” Each week, as we move towards the show’s May season finale, Marvel is releasing a different piece, which will tie in directly with the events of that week’s upcoming episode.

EW is proud to help Marvel introduce the art in advance of episode 18, “Providence,” which will air next Tuesday, April 15 at 9 p.m. ET. (Note that due to a scheduling change, ABC will air 2 hours of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a repeat of “Turn, Turn, Turn” at 8 and the new episode airing at 9.) The piece, which details the big events of this past week’s outing and teases both the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the appearance of Hydra, was crafted by Paolo Rivera, who has designed multiple posters for Marvel Studios as well as Eisner-award winning comics.

EW again spoke with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell about this week’s concept, and how it ties in to Tuesday’s episode.

'Lost' 10th anniversary reunion at PaleyFest: Five things we learned from the panel

“We have to go back.” That’s what Dr. Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox) says after returning home from the island in the third season finale of ABC’s epic drama Lost. And this Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, several of those castaways — as well as executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse — did indeed come back, to discuss the pivotal series as it celebrates the 10th anniversary of its premiere.

In addition to Lindelof and Cuse, the panel included Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Maggie Grace (Shannon), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), and Malcolm David Kelley (Walt). The cast and producers reminisced about their magical time on “The Island” and, naturally, still left us with a few unsolved mysteries. (Meanwhile, the panel’s moderator, comedian Paul Scheer, awkwardly urged audience members not to ask about another mysterious plane crash because it would “be in poor taste.” Yes; yes it would.) We did, however, learn these five things:
