TV Jukebox: What were your favorite songs in shows this week?

Have you ever been watching the end of a Vampire Diaries and wondered why you were weeping? Or been humming a random Springsteen song all week before you remember it was featured in Glee? Well, friend, you are not alone. We here at EW have been keeping our eyes and ears open in search of the best music appearing on the small screen this fall season. From that tireless search was born the TV Jukebox. Since the premieres began rolling in, we’ve found songs from perennial earworm provider Grey’s Anatomy, some danceable goodness from Glee and How I Met Your Mother, a surprise entry from still wet-behind-the-ears sitcom Free Agents, and more. Check out our picks below!  READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Whose wedding dress was better? (Poll)

Wedding dress madness continues on PopWatch! And while last night’s Grey’s Anatomy wedding was no royal wedding, it was gorgeous. I had only just stopped weeping from Bailey’s speech about God when the Bails (we’re tight that way) stood at the altar and officiated the ceremony between Callie and Arizona, both wearing white bridal gowns by Amsale (ABC confirms) with touches of their personality peppered through the styling. Callie, for example, had a veil custom made for the occasion to look like her mother’s (even though she ended up leaving in a fit before the ceremony… ). Arizona, meanwhile, kept it a little more bohemian with a looped headpiece with flowers on the side and minimalist jewelry. Callie didn’t have jewelry either, but the sleeves on her dress were certainly quite enough.

Speaking of which, unlike the saga we went through to identify Duchess Catherine’s best dress, I think this race has a clear winner. READ FULL STORY

Kevin McKidd says 'Grey's Anatomy' musical will likely garner 'a positive reaction.' Are you ready?

I’ve got a box of Puffs ready to go for tonight’s Grey’s Anatomy: The Musical Event. If you haven’t done the same, it’s safe for me to declare you completely unprepared.

Last week, I admitted to being skeptical about this episode, but the more and more I hear about it, the more confident I am that I’m going to be completely destroyed tonight. That’s a good thing! Kevin McKidd (who plays Owen) thinks we’ll like it, too.

“I think any time — at least in my life — you take a risk and try something new it’s always worked out, Because life would be boring if we just did the same thing every single day,” he says. “It’s a pretty emotional episode. It plays into the strengths the show has always had. My hunch is that it’s going to be a positive reaction.”

He’d know — Owen actually plays a big part in the episode because [MINI SPOILER] READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' musical sneak peek: Should the show be taking this kind of risk?

You are probably extremely skeptical about next week’s Grey’s Anatomy: The Musical Event. I don’t blame you; I can’t help but be too. Next week, we learn that Callie was gravely injured in the car crash we saw at the end of last night’s episode, and, as the team works on her, we enter her subconscious, which is apparently rife with musical numbers we’ve heard on the show before.

The thing is, I’m not concerned about the cast’s ability to execute this challenging episode of television. Sara Ramirez is a stage vet with a powerful voice. Sarah Drew’s single line about the endangered baby in the promo below broke my heart just a little. Chandra Wilson is, well, Chandra Wilson. Need I continue?

Rather, I’m worried about how this risky move could affect the show’s upward momentum. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Big Bang Theory,' take on Twitter

greys-anatomyImage Credit: Randy Holmes/ABCTelevision was a-Twitter last night, with both Grey’s Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory relying heavily on current technology for plot points. Sheldon’s students tweeted about how bad his lectures were, and someone “uploaded pictures to their Flickr account.” On Grey‘s, some of the doctors started tweeting their surgeries. Timely!

Maybe too timely, actually: READ FULL STORY

The Best TV Character Deaths of 2010

2010-deathsImage Credit: Michael Courtney/FoxOn TV, death is a good thing. Death shakes up the status quo. Death eliminates annoying characters, and it sends off beloved characters with an emotionally-explosive bang. The threat of main-character death has hovered over some of the greatest TV shows of the last ten years. Some shows, like 24, practically made a game out of their gleeful employment of the Death Twist, an out-of-nowhere elimination of an apparently central character. (Be honest: you had a couple bets going on who would die in the Lost finale, right?) Killing off a main character can be just a cheap gimmick, but when it’s done well, it can be incredibly moving. It can even revitalize a show. (See: Grey’s Anatomy, post-bloodbath.)

For our round-up of the best character expirations on TV this year, we focused exclusively on characters that were, if not series regulars, at least important parts of an ensemble — our (perhaps arbitrary) cut-off was that the character must have appeared on at least four episodes before expiring. By nature, this list skews towards drama, but it’s not all dour. On TV at least, death can be pretty funny. As you might expect, this post is SPOILER ALERT central, so if you’re worried, just click down to the comments right now and tell us your favorite deaths from 2010. Otherwise, check out the list after the jump… READ FULL STORY

TV Insiders podcast: Maks from 'DWTS' talks smack, Brenda from 'Survivor' discusses her shocking exit, and we tell you why 'Grey's Anatomy' is back!

If you thought Maksim Chmerkovskiy was upset about not making the final three on Dancing With the Stars…well, you were right! Brandy’s butt-slapping partner called in for our latest edition of the TV Insiders podcast to discuss not making the finals (“This is bulls—“), his reaction to a verbal confrontation with a certain female judge (“Screw Carrie Ann”) and whether he was, in fact, wearing a thong during his week 8 waltz  (you’ll have to listen to find out!). You have to hear it to believe it…and even then you still may not believe it. But Maks isn’t the only reality standout calling this week. The self-proclaimed king — not queen, mind you — of Survivor: Nicaragua, Brenda Lowe, also phoned in to defend not only her refusal to scramble for votes, but also the woman who backstabbed her: NaOnka. And if scripted fare is more your thing, Jennifer Armstrong joins Michael Slezak, Annie Barrett and yours truly to discuss why Grey’s Anatomy has again attained must-watch status after a rocky couple of seasons. It’s the most action-packed episode of the TV Insiders yet! You can download all the madness straight to your mp3 player, or click on the video player below to enjoy all the podcast magic right here and right now. Plus, if you have a question for the TV Insiders, you can tweet it to @EWDaltonRoss. Okay, prepare yourself for Maks and Brenda unleashed…

Under-appreciated Entertainer of the Year: Round 1 rages on with players from 'Parenthood,' 'Grey's,' 'Top Chef,' 'Runway,' etc.

Underappreciated-Entertainers-6BImage Credit: (CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Rahim, Anderson, Derry, Guerra) Roger Arpajou; Saeed Adyani; Lifetime Netowrk; David Geisbrecht/BravoI feel under-appreciated. Now girls, help me out, if you know what I’m talkin’ about,” sang Christina Aguilera on the aptly titled “Underappreciated,” a terrific but lesser-known cut from 2002’s underrated Stripped CD. And sadly, that’s a sentiment familiar to the 64 participants in EW.com’s first annual Under-appreciated Entertainer of the Year single-elimination bracket tournament.

As Day 6 of our first-round matchups continue, you’re going to have some brutal choices to make: Project Runway‘s Mondo Guerra and Top Chef‘s Tiffany Derry already got robbed on their respective reality series this year, yet one won’t even survive the initial duel of this bracket game. Parenthood‘s Peter Krause has done incredible work on a show that’s struggling in the ratings, while Sara Ramirez somehow fails to get the same awards-season love as many of her colleagues on ABC’s hit Grey’s Anatomy. Alas, you can only vote for one of ‘em.

We’re also showing mad love to some musicians and movie actors who deserve bigger commercial and/or critical success than they currently receive. In the former category, we’ve got Ray LaMontagne facing off against The Gaslight Anthem, and in the latter, it’s Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) taking on Joe Anderson (The Crazies).
