This Week's Cover: The Surprising Power of 'Pretty Little Liars'

PLL-EW-COVER-1248_510x680.jpg

Television isn’t just about ratings anymore. Now networks are fighting to earn the “most social” title for their hit shows, and one of the savviest series in the social media universe is the over-the-top teen mystery Pretty Little Liars. The ABC Family phenomenon and its digitally-inclined stars — Lucy Hale, 23; Ashley Benson, 23; Shay Mitchell, 25; and Troian Bellisario, 27 — are changing how networks measure success, one photobomb, tweet, status update, and Keek video at a time.

Some of the of their posts may be related to the ABC Family drama, where the girls play an atypically glamorous high school foursome tormented by anonymous and cunning cyberbullies out to punish the friends of a dead queen bee. But the cast’s real gift is for unleashing more personal-flavored details — a video of Benson slinking around to Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” with person-of-interest James Franco; photos of Hale in the studio recording her country album — that serve as a dose of gossip-crack for viewers and fans, which keeps them clicking and tuning in. Pretty Little Liars draws 3.8 million viewers each week, while also maintaining a colossal digital footprint of more than 10 million likes on Facebook, a Twitter handle (@ABCFpll) with a million-plus followers, and four stars who collectively reach more than 5.5 million with a tweet or retweet. (Hale alone boasts 2.2 million Twitter followers.)

Kate Upton's 'Sports Illustrated' cover: Chilling!

Screen Shot 2013-02-08 at 5.49.11 PM

Sports Illustrated has revealed its 2013 Swimsuit Issue cover, which features 20-year-old model and untalented car-washer Kate Upton (again!) braving the harsh Antarctic tundra in an open white parka and hopefully fleece-lined bikini bottoms. See the full, absurdly booby image (NSFW, BUT WHY ARE YOU STILL AT WORK?) after the break. READ FULL STORY

'RuPaul's Drag Race' react: Monica Beverly Hillz talks to EW about her shocking runway revelation

You never know what kind of craziness is going to go down on RuPaul’s Drag Race — especially once the show heads to its rather unpredictable runway. In the past we’ve seen queens be disqualified (Willam) and admit that they were HIV-positive (Ongina), and last night included another runway shocker, one that deserves a SPOILER ALERT in case you haven’t seen it: Contestant Monica Beverly Hillz admitted that she is a transgender woman.

“It’s true what you’re saying — there is a lot going through my head,” she said through tears to the judges, after they critiqued her rather harshly and said that she seemed “sad” and “disconnected” and not like herself. “I feel I’m not here. I’ve just been holding a secret in and trying so hard. I’m not just a drag queen — I’m a transgendered woman.”

Anne Hathaway addresses 'Les Mis' premiere wardrobe malfunction -- VIDEO

Matt Lauer doesn’t mess around. When he greeted Anne Hathaway on the Today show this morning, the host got right down to business: “Good to see you,” he said. “Seen a lot of you lately.”

Lauer, of course, was referring to Hathaway’s major wardrobe malfunction at Monday’s Les Mis premiere. While exiting her car in a tight Tom Ford gown, the Oscar nominee accidentally flashed a crowd of photographers — who quickly noticed that Hathaway wasn’t wearing underwear.

The actress was clearly reluctant to discuss the mishap with Lauer. But after some prodding, she launched into an articulate response that skillfully turned the question on its head: “Well, it was obviously an unfortunate incident,” she began. “It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which takes us back to Les Mis, because that’s what my character is.”

Boom! Did Hathaway miss her calling? She’d make a great PR flack, or maybe a high-powered lawyer.

Miley Cyrus can't be tamed, dances with a stripper

They grow up so fast.

Miley Cyrus got the best of both worlds this weekend, World No. 1 being “a dubstep concert” and World No. 2 being “a strip club.” The 20-year-old former Hannah Montana star performed onstage for the first time in awhile Saturday night, strutting her stuff in a Rihanna-worthy getup that featured over-the-knee python boots, a breast-baring top, and an S&M-style chain that linked her silver belt to her silver necklace.

Her hair is even shorter and buzzed on the sides now, and an exotic dancer clad only in a thong and pasties writhed on a pole as Cyrus sang. Somewhere, Angus T. Jones is clutching his pearls.

Cyrus’s fourth studio album will drop in 2013. May Mickey have mercy on us all.

ABC Family's 'The Mistle-Tones': 5 reasons to watch

Television movies during the holiday season are a particular delight. Mostly because — from the random storylines to the even-more-random casting — they’re completely crazy. Tonight’s entry from ABC Family, an original two-hour movie titled The Mistle-Tones airing at 8 p.m., is no different. Thus, here are the five reasons you should tune in:

1. Cat fighting between Tori Spelling and Tia Mowry! Well, there’s no real fighting — physically, anyway. But the Beverly Hills, 90210 and Sister, Sister alums trade a lot of spicy words, as the pair battles to rule the holiday group-singing circuit. Which brings me to… READ FULL STORY

I’m ready to propose some. Are you ready to propose? WHY NOT? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, IT’S DECEMBER. Seriously what is wrong with you? READ FULL STORY
