As Breaking Bad enters the homestretch for its fourth season, this week’s episode — in which a tragedy forced Jesse to choose sides in the Walt/Gus conflict — was far and away the highest-rated TV show among EW.com readers. Elsewhere, Glee jumped into the top ranks for the first time, thanks to an episode, “Asian F,” widely considered to be one of the show’s very best in a long time. Parks and Recreation continued its unbroken streak of top-tier ratings, while The Vampire Diaries dropped a bit to fifth. Here are the full standings: READ FULL STORY »
Tag: The Amazing Race (21-30 of 37)
For the 18th season of Amazing Race, eleven teams returned seeking redemption after losing their first time around. Of course, only one team could actually attain the sought-after redemption — going into last night’s two-hour season finale, seven teams had lost again, usually for the same reasons why they lost on their first go-round. (Message to Team Goth: Consider taking an orienteering course if you ever come back for a third Race.) In the end, though, one team successfully took home the $1 million prize.

Amazing Race had its fair share of squabbling couples (Nick and Vicki! Chad and Stephanie!) and passive-aggressive travel shenanigans, but the team of doctors made an inspirational portrait of courageous amiability under fire. Throw in the fact that Nat’s a diabetic with a fear of heights, and that vegetarian Kat had to devour a gloriously weird-looking sheep’s head in Norway, and you’re left with only one conclusion: These women deserved to win. (Read the full season finale recap here.) We caught up with the conquering heroines to get some clarification (why’d they fly to Dubai?) and ask the important question: Yeesh, do these women ever get angry?Nat Strand and Kat Chang are two of the most adorably non-dramatic reality show contestants ever. The 17th season of
Entertainment Weekly: Congrats on being the first ever all-woman team to win Amazing Race!
Kat: We’re still getting used to the title!
Nat: Even if it wasn’t us, we would’ve loved for any of the other girl-girl teams to win. We’re absolutely elated, and very honored, that we’re the lucky team that gets to carry that title.
You two never finished last, but you did have a couple of second-to-last-place legs. What was the low point? READ FULL STORY »
In the short history of fruit-related disaster videos, nothing has yet bested the Fall of the Grape Lady. But this just-tweeted preview video from the new season of The Amazing Race comes close. See, one of the Home Shopping Hosts has to hurl a watermelon at a suit of armor using a giant slingshot, which was actually the national pastime of Medieval France. Unfortunately, the slingshot backfires, and… READ FULL STORY »
Race fans, we’ve had a long and memorable season. After many centuries of philosophical debate, we learned empirically that Cowboys are better than Detectives. We saw a re-enactment of the trench warfare of World War I. Perhaps more terrifyingly, we saw Brent and Caite re-enact the same fight on five continents. (“You’re dumb!” “You’re dumb!” “You’re a towel!” “No, YOU’RE a towel!”) We saw just how easy it was to lose one coconut. (For want of a coconut, the race was lost…) And now, the 16th race around the world is over, and only one team reigns supreme. (SPOILERS APLENTY after the jump…)
Just because no one was surprised by the outcome of last night’s Amazing Race finale doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive that couple Meghan Ricky and Cheyne Whitney reached the finish line first. After a night of drinking and a way-too-early Early Show appearance, the winning duo checked in to shed light on their victory, Meghan’s voice, and Cheyne’s hair.
EW: Where did you watch the finale last night?
Meghan: Most of the cast came out to New York so we all met up and got to watch it in a private screening room at a hotel. That was pretty fun to be with the cast again.
Cheyne: And then we stayed out drinking and went to bed about 5 hours ago [6 a.m.]
Meghan: No, we went to bed at 3:30 am and got up for the Early Show 3 hours later.
EW: How was it seeing everyone from the show? Tense?
Cheyne: Not at all. We’re lucky enough that we’re still really close with a lot of the cast. We had gone to visit Sam and Dan and Brian and Ericka. We’ve seen Zev and Justin, Ron and Marcy. We’ve hung out a lot with everybody. Our cast is really close. Everyone’s really friendly and genuinely enjoys each other’s company.
EW: Were drinks on you last night?
Meghan: Everyone wanted them to be but we said, “Let’s wait until we get our check.”
