'The Bachelorette' special: 10 things we learned from the never-before-seen footage

Hello, rose lovers. Let me first offer my condolences for the fact that you’re currently sitting on your couch without having experienced any of the drama that typically lights up your Mondays. You know, the moments when Marcus makes you feel awkward and as though he’s willing to tattoo Andi’s name across his forehead? Or the moments when Brian warms your soul because he genuinely sucks at reading signals? Or even the moments when someone confesses yet another sob story to add to the season of sob stories? I know you miss all of it. I do, too.

But save your tears for the cameras, y’all, because we have a clip show to digest. More specifically, we need to dissect the bits of never-before-seen footage we just watched. And yes, I’m talking about how the whole house hates Nick.

Basically, after the show decided to cut last week’s rose ceremony to talk about Eric Hill, it finally gave us an inside look at what happened after Eric’s dramatic departure. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

Comic Ian Edwards launches Team Coco Records with debut album '100% Half-Assed'

Ian-Edwards

Tuesday marks the release of Ian Edwards‘ new comedy album 100% Half-Assed. It not only marks the first album for Edwards, a stand-up veteran, but it is also the first release on Team Coco Records, the new comedy label launched by Conan O’Brien. It’s the latest in a long line of collaborations between Edwards (who also wrote for 2 Broke Girls last season) and O’Brien. “I think I’m the only stand-up who has been on Conan’s show every time,” says Edwards, who made his debut on the old Late Night show back in 2007. “I did it when he was in New York, and then I did it when he had The Tonight Show, and I’ve done it on TBS. Conan always just wants you to be yourself. So why not go with the people who allow you to represent myself the way I really am?”    READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars': Can you guess our top suspects for Uber 'A'?

Think you know who “A” could be? We do.

“A,” the scheming character on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has manipulated the Liars, caused injuries, and is an all-around terrible person. Since the show launched in 2010, multiple characters have come out as “A” helpers — Mona, Toby, Lucas — but none have revealed themselves to be Uber “A,” the real bad guy (or girl!) who controls all the “A” minions. But we have some ideas. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: '22 Jump Street' in theaters, 'Veep' finale, Jack White's new album, and more

If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.

Starz's 'Power' react: A really long 50 Cent music video

Within seconds of the Power’s opening credits, the viewer knows exactly what the series is about. Like 50 Cent’s hit album, it’s largely about how to Get Rich or Die Tryin,’ with gratuitous shots of expensive watches, expansive penthouse apartments, and pricey red-bottomed Louboutin shoes. Well, specifically, Power is about James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Mary Jane alum Omari Hardwick), a big-time New York City drug dealer who opens a hot, high-end nightclub as a front to hide his dirty drug money.

I'm Still Not Over... Olive's solos on 'Pushing Daisies'

If you name a character Olive Snook, she’s going to seem pretty flat. And amid the glittering chaos of Pushing Daisies, it would have been easy for Olive to spend the entire series as a one-off joke. She’s a comically inept waitress with a crush on her boss, Ned. She has a high, slightly irritating voice, and she usually misses the point of jokes. But then Kristin Chenoweth gets to sing.

Nielsen reveals top 10 TV series on Twitter and the year's most tweeted-about episode

If television gave us anything to tweet about this year, it was Walter White’s journey from chemistry teacher to Heisenberg to whatever it was that he became.

Nielsen has released its list of this year’s most talked-about series on Twitter, which was calculated from September 1, 2013 to May 25, 2014. Breaking Bad not only topped the list — with an average reach of 6 million people per each new episode — but also took home the award for the greatest reach for a single airing, thanks to its buzzy series finale. Viewers’ final hour with Walt, Jesse, and all those crazy Nazis reached 9.1 million people on Twitter, making it quite literally the tune-in event of the year. However, The Voice set the record for total tweets sent about a single episode with 1.92 million tweets about its episode on May 13. READ FULL STORY

Bravo's 'Ladies of London': This ain't your average tea party

Any fan of Bravo’s long-running Housewives franchise knows the formula for deliciously dramatic reality television: simply assemble a group of fame-hungry women with big egos, bigger hair, and (biggest of all) huge credit card statements. But after hitting cities including Atlanta, New York, and Beverly Hills, it seems like this country is pretty well covered — which makes Bravo’s move across the Atlantic to London a no-brainer. Though the network’s new series, Ladies of London, isn’t officially part of the Housewives franchise, it may as well be. After all, declares one well-dressed cast member in the show’s opener, “This is the big league: this is London.” READ FULL STORY

'Jeopardy!' champion Julia Collins loses

Who is Julia Collins? She’s the most successful woman in the history of Jeopardy! — and unfortunately, her time on the show has come to an end.

Collins lost during her 21st appearance, which aired Monday, after betting everything in Final Jeopardy and answering the question incorrectly. The clue that stumped her? “The New England writer who in 1999 became the last person to win an Oscar for adapting his own novel as a screenplay.” The correct answer: “Who is John Irving?” (Collins guessed Michael Chabon instead.)

Collins lost to Brian Loughnane — but walked away from the show with a total of $428,100 and 20 victories. For those of you keeping count, that officially puts her ahead of David Madden and firmly in the second place spot for most consecutive wins, behind only Ken Jennings. See the Final Jeopardy question that finally defeated her in the video below. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' episode 4: 'I came on this to meet a person, not a TV actress.'

Arrrrrgh! It’s all too much! The whole thing is so sad and uncomfortable and now this?? Sorry for wigging out on you, rose lovers, but if you’ve just finished watching tonight’s episode you’re probably dealing with many of the same feels. Click through so we can discuss more openly.
