Did 'Mixology' deserve a second season? -- POLL

The first (and only) season of ABC’s Mixology has been a lot like a typical night out at the bar. There’s the appealing guy (Blake Lee’s Tom) or girl (Ginger Gonzaga’s Maya) you’re hoping will approach you, the guy (Andrew Santino’s Bruce) or girl (Frankie Shaw’s Fab) who unfortunately does approach you, and the bartenders (Vanessa Lengies’ Kacey and Adan Canto’s Dominic) who are more concerned with their own personal drama than getting you a drink.

But just because it got the bar scene right doesn’t mean it got everything right: The one-night-only gimmick had a tendency to wear thin, especially when you got invested in a bargoer’s love connection only to have that same character pursuing someone new the next week. These people had a lifetime of relationships in a single night and location. The ratings reflected that flakiness, and ABC pulled the plug earlier this month.

'Friends' PopWatch Polls: Which ex was the best (and worst)?

Friends is tearing EW apart.

We can’t decide if Ross really should have been allowed to sleep with another woman during his hours-long break with Rachel. Or if Phoebe’s art piece Gladys was actually less terrifying than Glynnis. Or if Smelly Cat was really that smelly, or whether Bamboozled’s rules actually made sense, or which Friend had the comfiest couch, or what happened to LaPooh, or whether Ben was really alive or just a figment of Ross’ imagination in seasons 1 through 8.

But here’s a doozy that comes with a very loaded set of options: Which Friend’s ex was the best, and who was the worst? As we know, our favorite New Yorkers were not shy when it came to blind dates, one-night stands, or lengthy relationships, leaving fans with a slew of guest stars who were both endearing and/or utterly awful (I’m so over Janine…).

Cases can be made for each and every failed relationship. Does the gold crown go to Tag, whose name was horrible but whose hair was not? Charlie, who may very well have been Ross’ fourth wife if she hadn’t dabbled in Joey? Janice, the queen of Yemen?

Or what about Emily? Richard? Mona? Mark? Fun Bobby? David? Duncan? Joshua? Pete? Elizabeth? Paolo? Julie? Janine? Gary? Bonnie? Kathy? Chip? Parker? Gavin? Tommy? Cheryl? Katie?

The world of Friends exes is pretty monstrous, so we’ve got two polls for you to consider: READ FULL STORY

'Friends' PopWatch Poll: Gladys or Glynnis?

“Applause” or “Roar”? Edward or Jacob? Whigs or Tories? History has long provided us with pop culture battles rife for debate, but there are some questions that have never even been posed to the general public. Until today. READ FULL STORY

Is Gwen Stefani a good fit for 'The Voice'? -- POLL

The Voice has had its fair share of megastar mentors, starting with original quartet Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. And the reality contest has been able to keep up its twice-a-year schedule by cycling out some of those judges with the equally star-powered Shakira and Usher.

So it comes as no surprise that Gwen Stefani might be the next superstar to join the NBC show. TMZ reports that it’s a done deal, while The Hollywood Reporter says the No Doubt singer is simply in talks, but NBC wouldn’t confirm the news when EW reached out for comment.

Whether the addition pans out and Stefani indeed replaces Aguilera in season 7 — which begins taping in June, airs in the fall, and includes another new judge in Pharrell Williams — let’s talk about what we think of the idea. There’s no question that she has an impressive career, both with No Doubt and as a solo artist, but how well do we know her personality? The Voice panel has thrived on the dynamic between the mentors, most notably with Blake and Adam’s bromance and Christina’s tension with the others. Where will Gwen fit in? It’s also worth noting that Stefani has worked with one of her potential chair-mates: Pharrell (with The Neptunes) produced her breakout solo single “Hollaback Girl,” and she contributed vocals to his 2005 solo single “Can I Have It Like That.”

'House of Cards': Let's talk all of season 2

House-of-Cards.jpg

Did you spend all of Presidents Day weekend breathlessly binge-watching the second season of House of Cards? Good — because so did I. (It’s what George Washington would have wanted.) And after coming up for air, fortifying myself with a few racks of slow-cooked ribs, and spending way too long Googling variations on “fluffy pet from the future and/or outer space” — seriously, there is no way Cashew is actually a guinea pig — I’m finally ready to process what I just saw.

(Spoilers, obviously, follow.) READ FULL STORY

Help us solve the mystery! Who's your favorite Sherlock Holmes? -- POLL

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first introduced Sherlock Holmes to the world in his 1887 novel A Study in Scarlet. Since then, the London-based detective best known for his logic, use of disguises, and overall ability to solve just about anything has been portrayed on screens both big and small. From Basil Rathbone’s 1930’s version of the character, featuring his signature pipe, to Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent adaptation, every Sherlock has a little something different to offer its audience.
