Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' episode 2

BACHELOR-CHRIS-HARRISON-02

Ladies and gentlemen, your Miss America 2013 is… Miss New York. I want to start this week by congratulating Miss New York on winning the crown and by thanking the Miss America Organization for having me back again this year to host the show. I have to admit I was a little surprised when I peeked at the card on the stage and saw the judges chose Miss New York over the very popular Miss South Carolina. It was definitely a bit of an upset, but Miss New York is a very deserving winner and really blew the judges away in her interview earlier in the week, and that stuck with them throughout the final night. Imagine me being involved with a competition show that had a little drama. I appreciate all of you that watched the ceremony and for all of those that watched the Bachelor on Monday night.

I was so happy we were able to get the cameras to Sean’s house in time to catch him in the middle of his workout… pardon me, his shirtless workout. I did feel a little bad when we accidentally caught him in the middle of his shower. But being the man he is, Sean took it all in stride and got ready for his week of first dates. Sarah got the first one-on-one date and was as nervous as she was excited. It always amazes me every time we land a helicopter on the driveway of the mansion. The space it lands on isn’t very wide and I’m always so impressed with the pros that land those choppers each time. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' season premiere

BACHELOR-CHRIS-HARRISON-02

Let me start this season off by saying it’s always good to be back. I always miss you guys as much as you miss the show. I didn’t get a chance to put up a blog after Ashley and JP’s wedding so before I dive into the new season of The Bachelor let me back up a bit and say just a few words. I was incredibly honored to be a part of that special day. The truth is that the odds of any relationship, on TV or off, making it all the way to the altar and ending in marriage are so small that it’s something that should always be cherished and celebrated. When you add to that the fact that Ashley and JP are such good people and so fantastic together it should definitely be celebrated. One thing I’m always struck by during these Bachelor weddings is how damn fun they are. At the end of the day it’s just a bunch of family and friends celebrating one of the great things life has to offer: true love. Speaking of true love, let’s talk about Sean and his search for that very thing. READ FULL STORY

After assembling a laugh-out-loud cast for the first season of his dating show parody Burning Love, Ken Marino set an ultra-high bar as he stepped behind the camera to produce the web series’ second season. But, as you can see from this exclusive cast shot, Marino has outdone himself. From Party Down cast mates to comic mainstays, the next set of suitors in this “loving homage” to The Bachelorette is chockablock with gut busters.

Below, Marino talks EW through season 2 with four exclusive pics, singles out some of the early favorites, and reveals the theme of season 3. Read on… READ FULL STORY

First look at the poster for Broadway's 'Picnic' with 'Lost' star Maggie Grace and Sebastian Stan -- EXCLUSIVE

picnic-poster

Maggie Grace and Sebastian Stan get close — Nicholas Sparks-movie close — in the brand-new poster for the Broadway-bound revival of Picnic, William Inge’s 1953 Pulitzer-winning drama about steamy passions in the mid-20th-century American heartland. Stan, a Gossip Girl alum who appeared in Captain America and last summer’s USA miniseries Political Animals, plays a handsome young drifter who crashes a Labor Day picnic in a small town — and catches the attention of the beautiful but innocent Madge Owens (played by Grace, a Lost alum who most recently reprised her role as Liam Neeson’s daughter in Taken 2). The limited-run play, directed by Sam Gold, begins previews Dec. 14 before a Jan. 13 opening at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre.

'Buffy' season 9 spin-off 'Willow': Our favorite witch tries to bring magic back to the world -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 — the spin-off comic book series, overseen by Joss Whedon, that continues the story of his distaff dispatcher of neck-biters — the world is devoid of magic. It’s made life less outrageous for Buffy and her friends — no giant Dawn rampaging through the streets of Tokyo, for example — but for one of the Scoobies, it’s also made life simply less, period.

For Willow, reverting from a righteously powerful witch to just another mortal person has proven so painful, her one goal in life has been to bring magic back to the world. But how? Willow recently finished an arc on the sister comic series Angel & Faith in which the trio ventured into a hell dimension in the pursuit of their own impossible goals. And in this first look at the five-issue Willow miniseries (subtitled “Wonderland” and launching Nov. 21), we get a sense of what’s at stake for Willow’s quest other than the return of her magical mojo.  READ FULL STORY

'Robot Chicken': New York Comic-Con exclusive! -- PHOTO

Cartoon Network’s heavily-caffeinated mega-spoof Robot Chicken is currently in the middle of its sixth season of frantically satirizing every element of geek culture. Chicken‘s co-creator and patron saint Seth Green will be at New York Comic-Con tomorrow talking about what’s coming up on the show, but Cartoon Network has given EW.com an exclusive — and, absent any context, somewhat horrifying — image from an upcoming episode. Suffice it to say that you may never watch E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial the same way ever again. Look upon the image if you dare! (And click on the image for a bigger image if you double-dare!)

Chris Harrison blogs the 'Bachelor Pad' season finale

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

There is so much we need to discuss that took place on the finale of Bachelor Pad 3 but let’s be honest the only thing that anybody on the planet will be discussing is Nick deciding to keep the money all for himself leaving Rachel heartbroken and just plain broke. I can’t wait to hear from all of you and get your feelings on this situation. While I don’t necessarily want to just throw out my own opinion I do have a unique perspective of this situation and there are some things I think you should know that might change your perspective.

But first I want to say that no matter what you think of Nick’s decision, you have to feel bad for Rachel. Whether she was used by Michael or not, I think we could all see she was falling in love with a guy that was just never going to have those same feelings for her. She was left heartbroken. She did a very good job of expressing her feelings for Michael and did the best she could to try and get some sort of answer. But let’s face it, we’ve all been in that situation, and there is never an explanation that will make anybody feel better about it.

The only thing that made any of that okay was the fact that Rachel knew she would at least walk away from this $125,000 richer. Unfortunately for Rachel, Nick had other plans for that money — which is to say, he really wanted it for himself. Let’s put Rachel’s feelings aside and the fact that Nick didn’t handle the situation well after he won the money, and let’s lay out a few facts:  READ FULL STORY
