Late Night Highlight: Emilia Clarke reminisces about her awkward 'Game of Thrones' audition on 'Tonight' -- VIDEO

The Mother of Dragons can bust a move! Well, sort of.

While stopping by The Tonight Show to promote season 4 of Game of Thrones on Wednesday, actress Emilia Clarke told Jimmy Fallon that GOT co-creator David Benioff “suggested [she] do a little dance” during her audition for the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

Unfortunately, she decided to show off her Funky Chicken moves. Luckily, she still got the part.

Highs and lows of 'The 100' series premiere

The CW’s latest drama with attractive teens is a post-apocalyptic tale about 100 (hot) delinquents who get ousted from their space home by really horrible adults, then sent to Earth to see if the once radiation-soaked planet is inhabitable again. What unfolds is a Lord of the Flies type rebellion: The teens attempt to establish their own society and cut off communication with their leaders on the Ark (the name they use for their space station home) because, Dude, they sent us here without knowing if it was safe and were totally cool with us dying. So, like, GFY. 

Not all the teens think that way, though. Some of them, like Wells (Eli Goree), whose dad (Isaiah Washington) is Chancellor, and Clarke (Eliza Taylor), the daughter of space doc Abby (Paige Turco), keep in mind the implications of severing communications with the Ark. (If all of their health monitors indicate death, they say, no one will want to come back for them.)

Further complicating matters is the fact that it seems Earth’s newest residents are not alone. There’s something lurking about in the forests where the teens were dropped, and judging by their first encounter, they’re not friendly. And, frankly, that’s exciting. In fact, the introduction of these mysterious beings was one of the best parts of episode 1, which is why they made my list of highs and lows below:

'Arrow' react: Dig(gle) a little deeper

As far as I’m concerned, the more Diggle, the better. And tonight’s episode reminded me why that’s the case. And when you add in a tearful Ollie and the Suicide Squad? Oh yeah. I’m one happy viewer. Here’s what went down: READ FULL STORY

Late Night Highlight: Kristin Cavallari defends her decision not to vaccinate her kids -- VIDEO

Just last week, Fox’s Lisa Kennedy joked with Kristin Cavallari about Jenny McCarthy’s decision not to vaccinate her kids. Then, in an awkward moment viewers won’t soon forget, Cavallari announced that she had also made the decision not to vaccinate.

And last night, on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Kristin Cavallari about her controversial decision. Cavallari said she felt she was doing what’s right for her kids. “There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines,” she said.

Watch Cavallari, who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Jay Cutler, below:

Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon get nostalgic, play Pyramid on 'The Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon have a lot more in common than we knew.

Dunham stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday to promote Sunday’s season finale of her HBO comedy, Girls. And while it’s not surprising that these two had a breezy, fun conversation — thanks in no small part to their mutual admiration — what we didn’t expect was a five-minute nostalgia trip, with the duo reminiscing about video stores and the impact of Reese Witherspoon’s early career.

It turns out both Dunham and Fallon had gigs working as video store clerks when they were teens. In the interview below, we learn that Dunham worked at Mr. Video 3 for $4.75 an hour when she was 14, while Fallon was 17 when he worked at Video 2. Dunham laments the “video store guy” — those dudes who “are kind of mean, they think they’re smarter than everyone, [but] they’re probably not because they work at a video store” — going the way of the dinosaur. She says those guys at Mr. Video 3 “had real opinions about film, whereas I was like, ‘Whatever Reese Witherspoon is in, give it to me.’”

'The Originals' react: Bad moon rising

Can’t we all just get along? That was the theme behind tonight’s episode, the short answer to which is: No. Not when Klaus Mikaelson is involved. Honestly. For someone who’s so stuck on the idea of family, Klaus seems to forget that Elijah is the one who has saved his life for all these years. We get that you want to be the big bad wolf, Klaus, but what exactly are you doing? Then again, you could make the argument that he wants his child to be safe. Is he actually being a good father, even if it means being a bad brother? Let’s get to it! READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Blade of Glory

Our first glimpse at Dean in possession of the First Blade that he and Sam have been chasing for the last few episodes has instilled me with great fear. Fear because he seems aggressive and brutal…and dangerously unpredictable.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. I would be remiss to glaze over the efforts the Winchesters put into obtaining said blade. So allow me to recap… READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' finale react: I know what you did that summer

Matt Lauria is returning to 'Parenthood': We imagine the scenarios

If you’ve felt that Parenthood has been lacking in the hot guy department lately, well, you clearly haven’t been looking at Joel or Carl. But if you’ve been craving a certain young man in uniform, we’ve got good news! EW has confirmed that Matt Lauria, who plays Ryan York, is returning to the show.

But before you can jump for joy, let’s all remember that Ryan left Amber to go to war, because he feels the most like himself when he’s a soldier. So for starters, how is he returning home from war, and what could his return mean for Ryber?

As far as I see it, there are a few ways this could play out: READ FULL STORY
