PopWatch Planner: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' hits theaters, 'Mad Men' sort-of finale, and more -- VIDEO

TV finales take over once again this week, with competition shows like The Amazing Race: All-Stars and The Voice saying goodbye to another season and drama Mad Men ending until the current season picks back up in 2015. If you’re tired of TV though, not to fear: X-Men: Days of Future Past comes out in theaters this week, and we’ve also got some recommendations for albums and books to digest when you have some downtime.

So without further ado, here are some suggestions for your pop culture schedule this week:


PopWatch Planner: 'The Voice' premieres, 'Scandal' returns, and The Fray's new album hits shelves

Aaaannnd exhale. After weeks of Olympic coverage, it’s just about time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming. My DVR might not be happy about, but I’m over the moon.

This is the week when your favorite shows find their way back to your TV screens. From the long-awaited returns of Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy to the season premieres of Dallas and The Voice, it’s hard to go wrong with your television choices. Meanwhile, at the theater, Liam Neeson is heating up the screen, and elsewhere, we’ve found book and album releases that are not to be missed. Basically, you’ve got a lot of work to do this week. Enjoy!

PopWatch Planner: The Grammys, 'Die Hard' lives, and 'The Following' kills

We made it through the blizzard! That means it’s time to warm up and dry off with a week of musical performances and Bruce Willis blowing things up.

That and several other post-disater to-dos for this week’s planner. Don’t forget to tell us what we missed.


'The Amazing Race' instant react: And the season 21 winner is...

Our full recap of The Amazing Race is in the works, but before that goes up, we thought it only right to let you know who took home the $1 million prize.

Tonight’s two-hour finale saw the three final teams — Lexi & Trey, James & Jaymes, and Josh & Brent — travel from Europe to the city that is the main home to EW itself: New York! The teams skittered from Coney Island to the Brooklyn Navy Yard (where one from each team had to escape a straight jacket while hanging upside down!) to Lombardi’s in Little Italy to, finally, the United Nations. There, the final challenge had them matching up the words for “hello” and “goodbye” from each of the nine countries they visited on their adventure.

Since it was a memory challenge (it always is at the end!), it’s really no surprise, then, that the winning team was…


PopWatch Planner: 'The Dark Knight Rises,' 'Boardwalk Empire,' and more

In a way, Batman is sort of like Santa Claus. He’s cloaked in mystery, sorts through the naughty and the nice at night, and has helpers who build his magnificent toys. Also — little known fact — the real Santa delivers his “Ho, ho, ho’s” in an Eastwoodian whisper. So it makes some sense that The Dark Knight Rises arrives on Blu-ray just in time for it to become the stocking stuffer of the holiday season. (Yeah, like you’re going to wait that long to watch it again.)

Check out what else this week has in store.

SUNDAY, Dec. 2

Boardwalk Empire season finale, HBO, 10 p.m.

Empire has demonstrated that it knows how to close. Every season, HBO’s gangster prohibition drama eases into the action, patiently setting up the game’s pieces during the first few episodes, before thundering towards an emotional climax. Expect more fireworks tonight. READ FULL STORY

On the scene: Martha Stewart talks chickens, tweets, 'Cooking School'

Starting the day with eggs from Martha Stewart’s Bedford, N.Y., farm? Now that‘s a good thing. To preview her upcoming Cooking School, the domestic mogul hosted an intimate demonstration at her New York City HQ today.

Entering the event, I must admit that I feared even putting myself in the sightline of La Stewart would send me into a tizzy akin to Ellen DeGeneres in her hilariously chaotic 1995 Thanksgiving episode of Ellen. Then came the aforementioned eggs, the homemade jams (blueberry, raspberry, and cherry), and the caramelized grapefruit (with a candied blood orange garnish — obviously)… and let’s just say Martha knows that the way to ease the nerves is through a glorious food coma.

And the 'Amazing Race' winners are [SPOILER]. And also us, for the most nail-biting finale ever!

Twenty seasons in and yet The Amazing Race still has the power to be one of the most nail-biting shows on TV. If this season unsatisfied some with its especially shrill, unlikable final four teams, it more than made up for personality deficiencies with sheer excitement. In tonight’s Hawaii-set finale, Army officer Dave and his wife Rachel reached the finish line first. They won, right? Wrong! They had completely skipped a Roadblock challenge, a bizarre task that was some kind of Hawaiian grass sledding, so they had to go back and start it from scratch. That meant Season 20 was officially anybody’s game. But there could only be one winner. And the victors were…! READ FULL STORY
