'Revenge' star Gabriel Mann takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO


On Sunday, Revenge wraps its second season (ABC, 9 p.m. ET) with a two-hour finale, and Gabriel Mann (Nolan) admits the show’s writers “had their hands full” trying to sort out the chaos caused by the Carrion program’s activation and the whole mystery of the Initiative. “I would say our finale is the solution to a season-long puzzle,” he says. “I was really thrilled the way they were able to do it, because even in thinking about trying to answer some of those questions myself, I would not have come to this.” There will be a death: “It’s one of our original core characters. It’s very bittersweet,” he says. “You have to anticipate on a show like this that’s part of the game you play, but for some reason it doesn’t make it any easier.”

We thought our Pop Culture Personality Test might be a nice distraction, but then we asked him to name a TV moment that made him cry, and well, you’ll see… READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'The Great Gatsby,' Rihanna's documentary, and more TV finales

May has arrived, spring has (sort of) sprung, and we are officially smack dab in the middle of finale season. We’re also coming up on some of the biggest movie releases of the year. Basically, it’s an exciting time to be an entertainment junkie, folks! So here is what we’ve rounded up for you this week. Whether you’re a Rihanna fan, an avid reader of YA novels, a country music fan, or a Gleek, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your week … entertainment-wise. The rest is up to you.

Rihanna 777, 8 p.m., Fox
Catch an up-close-and-personal look at life on the road with Rihanna in this documentary about her November 2012 tour, in which she traveled to seven countries for seven concerts in seven days (get it?) to promote her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for a Chris Brown cameo … or maybe we shouldn’t.

Golden by Lady Antebellum hits record stores
Lady Antebellum’s fourth studio album marks their return to the sound that fans fell in love with — think “Need You Now.” From upbeat tracks to emotional ballads, this record is sure to please fans. But if you’re looking for something a little more outside-of-the-box, we hear good things about The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which also drops Tuesday.

Amazon Original Pilots, amazon.com
Check out Amazon’s slew of original pilots, watch them for free, and then vote for which pilot you want to be developed into a series. Voting goes through mid-May so act now! Our recommendation: Alpha House, starring John Goodman as a D.C. senator.

Community, 8 p.m., NBC — OR — Glee, 9 p.m., Fox
So many season finales, so little time. Whether you want to spend your night laughing or tapping your feet is up to you, but when it comes to Glee, regionals always provides a good show. Plus, will Blaine go through with proposing to Kurt?!

The Great Gatsby opens in theaters
Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic novel is finally here, and it promises to be a visual experience that will leave you feeling one of two things: absolutely in awe or absolutely confused. But one thing is certain: With Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Toby Maguire in the lead roles, the party’s attendees are sure to be as pretty as the parties themselves.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
The next big YA novel is here, and it focuses on a brave young female character and what happens to her when the world is invaded by aliens. Oh, and there’s a love interest. More importantly, Sony has already made a deal to launch what Yancey predicts will be a trilogy to the big screen.

Once Upon a Time, 8 p.m., ABC — OR — Revenge, 9 p.m., ABC — OR — Survivor, 8 p.m., CBS
It is an epic three-way battle of finales, and thanks to our best friend, DVR, we don’t have to choose. But if you do have to choose, we hear that big things are going down in Revenge‘s final hour.

Popwatch Planner: 'Oz the Great and Powerful,' 'Switched at Birth,' and more


How many times have you heard “I can’t believe it’s March” this week? Well, one more time, “I can’t believe it’s March!” The Oscars are over, the college basketball brackets aren’t even out yet, and it’s going to be a while before May sweeps begin. In the meantime, Justin Timberlake is hosting Saturday Night Live again, Rachel Zoe returns, and our cover stars from Oz The Great and Powerful are hitting the big screen. Here is our list of to watch this week to beat March Madness (Look, we don’t really watch sports). Have a great week!

Golden Globes 2013: After-parties boast celebs from Quentin Tarantino to Selena Gomez

Near-freezing temps were no match for Sunday night Globe winners such as Quentin Tarantino and celebrities like Selena Gomez, who were determined to keep the party going following the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Full of booze and ravenous for food, stars flocked to several bashes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel just after the awards ceremony, from HBO’s soiree at the downstairs Circa 55 restaurant and The Weinstein Company’s party at the old Trader Vic’s, to the NBC-Focus Features-Universal’s rooftop shindig, Warner Bros. InStyle‘s huge party in the Oasis Courtyard, and Fox’s tented bash just outside the hotel.


NBC's 'Deception': Better than 'Revenge,' or a carbon copy?

If the networks aren’t careful, they might soon find that they’ve run out of sexy nouns to use as TV show titles. Revenge? Taken. Scandal? Check! And tonight, we can add another series to the list: Deception, a sudsy drama that bears more than a passing resemblance to the first ABC soap I mentioned. (Almost certainly coming next season: CBS’s Power, the twisted tale of a green energy mogul’s lust for, well, you know.)

Like Revenge, Deception is set in the rarefied world of New York City’s upper crust. The first show centers on the Graysons, an incredibly wealthy family with more than a few skeletons in its walk-in closet; the second focuses on the Bowers clan, a group of billionaires with their own checkered pasts. Both families have high-powered patriarchs, acid-tongued matriarchs, bratty, pill-popping teenage daughters, and dreamboat 20-something sons who work for their fathers — and fall for each series’ respective protagonist.
