Video diary: How Rico Rodriguez from 'Modern Family' does the Globes

Rico Rodriguez, Manny on ABC’s Modern Family, is giving Entertainment Weekly an exclusive behind-the-scenes look this week of what it’s like to go to the Golden Globes.

Take a peek and see Rico’s sister (and date for the big event) Raini, star of Disney Channel’s Austin and Allie, help her younger brother pick out an outfit and gear up with his favorite party jam.

Who was 2011's worst-dressed TV character?

Let’s face it: Not everyone on TV can be Victoria Grayson (Madeline Stowe), whose immaculate gown collection on Revenge makes her look like she’s stepped out of a magical silk sea that changes jewel tones at her every whim and envelops her in liquid wealth for every occasion — “breakfast,” for example. Nope, sometimes people on TV just look like crap. I’ve started a list of 2011′s Worst-Dressed TV People below. But it will likely seem as incomplete as Kurt’s ridiculous one-sleeved cowl-neck sweater on Glee, so please add your own suggestions in the comments! READ FULL STORY

Fall TV post-mort: What are you still watching? DVR'ing?

Let’s think back for a moment to the start of the fall TV season when we were giddy with hope and optimism about all the new (Hart of DixieNew Girl! The X Factor!) and old (Modern Family! Glee! Fringe!) shows we’d watch in the months ahead. Back then I posted a series of blog posts outlining what I planned to view live versus DVR every night of the week. At the time, I really did have every intention of sticking to my schedule, but naturally as the weeks wore on and plotlines developed my interests began to waver, for better and for worse. I’m sure you know what I mean, unless you’re one of those people who actually follows through with your goals, in which case we can’t be friends. Nevertheless, now that we’re in the midst of the dreaded hiatus period, I figured it would be a good time to reflect on where we started off this season and where we ended up. Check out my day-by-day post-mort below, beginning with all the shows I so naively intended to watch: READ FULL STORY

Obama girls not allowed on Facebook, don't get it anyway

In the latest issue of People magazine, the President and First Lady sit down to take a serious look back at 2011 and lightheartedly remind us that they’re just like us. The big news (for pop culture fans): President Obama watches Boardwalk Empire and Homeland, while wife Michelle and daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, prefer Modern Family. There, now you know what to talk to them about should you ever meet them. According to People.com, the Obamas only recently got a DVR installed in their second-floor family quarters in the White House. Reason I will never be asked to interview the Obamas: I would have wasted valuable time having them go through all their season passes.

Also of note: The girls aren’t allowed on Facebook, but they don’t want to be on it anyway: “Their theory is, ‘Why would we want to have a whole bunch of people who we don’t know knowing our business?’” the president says. “We’ll see how they feel in four years.” (Somehow, it hits home when children say it, right?)

P.S. My favorite line of the People White House interview is, “He kissed his wife, Michelle, and rolled his eyes at the jingle-bell collar she’d put on their dog Bo.”

TV Leaderboard: 'New Girl' gobble gobbles its way into EW.com reader's hearts

It may have started as one of the fall seasons most divisive new shows, but New Girl firmly grabbed the hearts of EW.com readers this week with its Thanksgiving episode, in which Jess invited prospective mate Paul Gunslinger (Justin Long) over for a turkey dinner partially cooked in a clothing dryer. Elsewhere, How I Met Your Mother‘s ongoing Barney/Robin will-they-or-won’t-they-oh-they-did-but-then-they-ultimately-didn’t plot line kept the show in second place for another week.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time series premiere debuted to the best numbers for a new network drama this season, and this week, with an episode that revealed the backstory for why the Evil Queen cast her curse, the show was also No. 1 with EW.com readers.

TV Leaderboard: 'Breaking Bad' tops again in EW.com reader ratings

As Breaking Bad enters the homestretch for its fourth season, this week’s episode — in which a tragedy forced Jesse to choose sides in the Walt/Gus conflict — was far and away the highest-rated TV show among EW.com readers. Elsewhere, Glee jumped into the top ranks for the first time, thanks to an episode, “Asian F,” widely considered to be one of the show’s very best in a long time. Parks and Recreation continued its unbroken streak of top-tier ratings, while The Vampire Diaries dropped a bit to fifth. Here are the full standings: READ FULL STORY

TV Leaderboard: 'Breaking Bad' passes 'Vampire Diaries' in EW.com reader ratings

The CW’s The Vampire Diaries may have been tops in EW.com reader ratings last week, but that was only based on partial data — we hadn’t yet been able to include Friday and Sunday programming. And now that a full week of new TV is under our belt, a new champion has emerged: AMC’s Breaking Bad, in which a desperate Walt turned to Saul for help after Gus brought the hammer down. Also moving into the top ranks: the season premieres of Friday’s sci-fi freakout Fringe, and Sunday’s lawyer-cum-political-cum-domestic drama The Good Wife. Check out the full standings below:  READ FULL STORY

For the 2011-2012 season, you may have noticed that EW.com’s recaps have featured a new starred rating for the episode in question. Each Friday, we’ll reveal your highest-rated episodes for the week. The top vote-getter for this week, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, should prrrrobably not be that huge of a shock given the show’s rabid following, and a strong episode that saw Elena, Alaric, and Damon confronting a hybrid just hours before a full moon. The biggest surprise? The polarizing series premiere of Fox’s New Girl pulled in the most total votes by far, and easily broke into the top five shows. Check out the rest of the list below:  READ FULL STORY

Fall TV Wednesdays: What to watch? What to DVR?

So without further adieu, check out my stress-less picks below and let me know if they align with your plans for the night.  READ FULL STORY
