‘Tis the season to end the TV season. A time of apocalyptic cliffhangers, teary eyed goodbyes, and of course, angry runaway wedding-crashing badgers. Speaking of spoilers: There will be a lot of them in our critical assessment of the year’s most notable finales so far, from The Office to Nashville to one not-so-happy Happy Endings. If your DVR cue is clogged with deferred climaxes… well, you should get that checked out, because it sounds painful. You should also not read everything that follows this colon: READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Nashville (1-10 of 15)
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 »
Spoiler alert!If you haven’t watched this week’s Nashville and intend to, stop reading now. Otherwise, let’s relive the moment that had some people wanting to shout Deacon’s name from the rooftops. (Now known as Twitter and Facebook.) Then, we’ll assess where we stand on various plot-points in five polls. READ FULL STORY »
The weather is warming up, the brown things are turning green, and it’s time to watch some baseball. Or, if stadiums aren’t your thing, watch some baseball in a dark theater on a giant screen. Advance word on the Jackie Robinson flick 42 is quiet, though the First Family loves it.
The buzz on 42 – plus other things the White House has yet to approve for your week — below.
Last night wasn’t the first time the Stella Sisters, 13-year-old Lennon and 9-year-old Maisy, who play Rayna’s daughters on ABC’s Nashville, sang on the show. But their cover of the Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” made us sit up and take note. Watch it below.
In case you didn’t know the girls were a YouTube sensation even before they were cast on the show, we’ve embedded some of their greatest hits below. READ FULL STORY »
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
The days of infinity pools, the Harbor School, and witty banter in the Cohen’s kitchen are long gone, but that doesn’t stop us from following the careers of those who created some of our favorite dramatic moments (accompanied by Imogen Heap songs) on The OC. And if we’re already being nostalgic, we might as well take things all the way back to season 1. You know, when Ryan Atwood still wore a wrist cuff, and Luke was the bad guy who won our hearts. Speaking of the blonde love triangle, we’ve got an update on what Luke, Ryan, and even Marissa (she’s back from the dead!) are up to now. READ FULL STORY »
If, like me, you were hoping there was a new episode of Nashville tonight so you could see what happens next between Scarlett and Gunnar, last seen finally making out on their couch (after he told her that his brother had been beaten to death — romantic?), I’ve got some bad news: The next new episode doesn’t air until March 27. I’m all for foreplay, but that’s just cruel!
While you watch the hookup again below, here’s some good news: I’m assured what happens next will be worth the wait. (And then we have the introduction of Scarlett and Gunnar’s hot new neighbor, played by The O.C.‘s Chris Carmack, to look forward to in future episodes.) But also in that March 27 episode: Rayna will appear on Katie Couric’s syndicated talk show Katie to discuss her failed marriage and career resurgence. Just how candid will she be? And will we get cutaway shots to Teddy, Deacon, and Juliette watching? READ FULL STORY »
So, there’s this little party in Hollywood tonight with your close pals Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway, and company. People are getting really dressed up, and it’s on TV, and we hear Hugh Jackman is going to sing, so maybe you should tune in. But other than the Oscars, there’s tons to tune into this week — Twilight’s out on DVD, Top Chef crowns a new winner, and more! What should you be paying attention to this week? Let’s see, shall we?
