Yes, there are a few season finales to go, but with the rush of surprise twists, cliffhangers, and exits behind us, it’s now time for EW.com’s fourth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards. After taking your suggestions under advisement — and extending the cutoff date to March 31, because so many of you wanted to (dis)honor the passing of The Walking Dead‘s Andrea — here are this year’s nominees. UPDATE: Polls are now closed. Winners will be announced Friday. READ FULL STORY

Love is on the air: Who is the Greatest TV Couple of All Time?

face-off-final.jpg

You know how CBS puts its NCAA basketball tournament to bed each year with a video montage set to “One Shining Moment”? I can’t help but envision the “One Shining Moment” for EW’s Who is the Greatest TV Couple of All Time? bracket game, reminding us of the loves lost during this often ruthless contest. There’s a shot of Sam and Diane getting engaged in court, there’s a clip of Marge getting all Officer and a Gentleman with Homer at the power plant, and there’s Ross in the rain staring at Rachel inside Central Perk. But who will get the final glorious we’re-number-one embrace? Will it be the Doctor and Rose, whose love knows no time or space boundaries in Doctor Who? Or Kurt and Blaine, whose trailblazing romance continues to give hope to those yearning for a happy forever-after on Glee? Both finalists are beloved by the passionate followings of the show and have the online support to prove it.

The polls are open now and will close late on Thursday night, before we crown the Greatest TV Couple of All Time on Friday. You can check out our full bracket here.

Love is on the air: Who is the greatest TV couple of all time? The Final Four

It was a stunner: Even President Obama likely had Ross and Rachel advancing to the Final Four in his Greatest TV Couple of All Time bracket. But that’s why they play the games… and the popularity contests that skew towards current favorites. Like Marshall and Lily of How I Met Your Mother, deserved darlings who upset the presumed No. 1 seed with a little help from their friends. The couple joins Kurt and Blaine from Glee, The Doctor and Rose from Doctor Who, and sentimental favorite Lucy and Ricky from I Love Lucy (who’ve made it this far without a grassroots social-media presence).

Check out our full bracket here and vote in the polls below to determine who will move on to the championship round. Now, the Final Four remaining couples battle it out below!

Marshall and Lily, How I Met Your Mother vs. Kurt and Blaine, Glee

We’ve watched Ted tell the story of his search for the would-be mother of his children for nearly eight seasons, but How I Met Your Mother‘s greatest couple actually didn’t have to search very hard for one another at all. Marshall and Lily’s tale began in college — she was an art freak and he loved, um, sandwiches. For both Ted and the audience, the couple quickly became the ideal for that right-in-front-of-your-face/call-just-to-say-I-love-you romance — the kind of love where you know the search is over.

Peabody Awards honor 'Doctor Who,' 'Girls,' The New York Times (and a bunch of other stuff)

Doctor Who, Southland, Girls, and a host of other media were honored by the Peabody Awards this morning in the program’s annual announcement of its winners.

Administered by the University of Georgia’s journalism school, the Peabodys occupy a specific intersection in the yearly awards space by honoring “achievement and meritorious service” across multiple forms of broadcast — TV, radio, the Internet — which means each class can include an elastic number and type of winners.

Among those honored include D.L. Hughley’s satiric The Endangered List for Comedy Central, the SCOTUSblog, ABC’s documentary on Robin Robert’s battle with illness, The New York Times’ multimedia project “Snow Fall,”  and The Library of Congress’ “Media Mechanics” mini-documentaries.

Meanwhile, both the “seemingly immortal” Who and Michael Apted’s Up series were honored with Institutional awards for being great for a very long time and Lorne Michaels was the recipient of an Individual award because “he’s the patron saint of satirical television comedy and, as one of his old co-conspirators would say, you’re not.”

See the entire list of this year’s 39 selections — all honored equally, as per the Peabody’s egalitarianism.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones' and 'Doctor Who' return, Katherine's back on 'The Vampire Diaries', and more

We might as well call this premiere week. Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and The Voice are all back. Nashville returns from a long hiatus. Oh, and that movie where Ryan Gosling has a ton of tattoos that you’ve been thinking might be cool to check out is finally here.

Whether you’re planning an elaborate Game of Thrones party, still debating the Vampire Diaries dilemma that ended so many friendships, or just plotting the best possible way to get Matt Smith your phone number, this week has something for everyone. And we do mean everyone! We start with a salute to strong female characters from Broadway musicals and end with a show where the likelihood of blood (and/or sex) is 100%. Here’s what to do for the days in between.

SUNDAY
Kristin Chenoweth: The Dames of Broadway… All of ‘Em, 8 p.m., PBS

OK, hear me out. There are just so many TV options on Sunday! Revenge, The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time! So, you’re going to watch your favorite. But if you choose to DVR any other show, why not give Chenoweth a chance! She’s got charm, pizzazz, and oh man that VOICE.

MONDAY
The Voice, 8 p.m., NBC

Speaking of voices, the best use of spinning chairs on television returns. We’re all excited to see if Shakira and Usher can carry their weight as judges. Plus, we get to hear a pretty seductive version of ”Sexy and I Know It.”

TUESDAY
The Mindy Project, 9:30 p.m., Fox

Ellie Kemper guest stars! We can only hope that she becomes a regular on the show next season after The Office ends. Maybe if we all ask hard enough, Kemper and Kaling will bring their pop group, Subtle Sexuality, to the show eventually.

WEDNESDAY
Nashville, 10 p.m., NBC

After a month off, we get to find out what’s up with Scarlett and Gunnar! Let’s hope it’s steamy.


THURSDAY
The Vampire Diaries, 8 p.m., The CW

Klaus is shirtless. Caroline’s looking vengeful. We get the Katherine vs. Elena (sans humanity) scene we’ve been waiting for. Plus, we’re kind of loving Rebekah and Elena as partners in crime, right?


FRIDAY
The Place Beyond the Pines hits theaters

Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendez, and Rose Bryne star in this movie about fathers and sons directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine). Come for Ryan Gosling’s abs, stay for his (and Cooper’s) strong acting. Watch some scenes from the movie here to get excited.

SATURDAY
Doctor Who, 8 p.m., BBC America

You saw our two covers, paper dolls, and exclusive video, now it’s time for the premiere. How is Clara going to fare as a companion? Will she be able to fill the Pond-sized hole in our hearts? And who exactly is she? Be prepared to get taken through space and time by a man in a bow-tie.

SUNDAY
Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO

We’ve been preparing for this for a while and we know you have too. If the epic trailer, which basically looks like a movie, doesn’t make you want to watch consider this: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) goes ”dragon fishing” on a sea voyage.
