After a shaky batch of episodes that stranded the band of survivors on the world’s most manic-depressive farm, The Walking Dead has been on a roll the last couple weeks. Two main characters were killed off in two consecutive episodes — heck, one character was even killed off twice — and the penultimate hour of the season ended with the promising sight of a bloodthirsty zombie herd bearing down on Hershel’s Farm. The stage was set for an old-fashioned human-vs.-zombie showdown — Gunfight at the OK Corral with more biting. And sure enough (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER) READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Walking Dead (51-60 of 95)
Time flies, but it seems to take waaaay longer when you’re waiting for the most anticipated movie of the year to open or a favorite TV show to come back from an extended hiatus. This Friday, Hunger Games fans will finally get their wish when Katniss, Peeta, and the rest of the crew come to the silver screen. But that’s not all that’s on the docket this week. The planner is bookended with AMC favorites, starting with tonight’s Walking Dead season finale and moving on to next Sunday’s Mad Men season 5 premiere – it’s only been 17 months in the making!
In between, there’s the Dancing with the Stars season opener, a couple new TV shows (Touch and Bent) to check out, and of course, NCAA March Madness. Have a great week!
The Walking Dead season finale, 9 p.m. AMC
The Walking Dead season finale tonight should have enough blood, gore, drastic turns of events, and gun-wielding zombies to hold you over until next season. If not, perhaps you should seek outside help… or just watch the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer a few more times. After the show, check out our interview with showrunner Robert Kirkman and the full recap of the episode on insidetv.ew.com.
Dancing with the Stars season premiere, 8 p.m., ABC
If you ever wanted to see Urkel dance, this season of Dancing With the Stars is your chance. Former Family Matters star Jaleel White joins tennis great Martina Navratilova, Extra host Maria Menounos, singer Gavin DeGraw, and more under the glitter ball.
The Muppets out on DVD/Blu-ray
I have had “Man or Muppet” in my head since The Muppets came out over Thanksgiving, but that won’t stop me from watching it again. Relive all the Muppety magic as the Jason Segel/Amy Adams – and don’t forget Kermit and Miss Piggy — film makes its way to DVD and Blu-ray.
Bent premieres, 9 p.m., NBC
Amanda Peet (where’s she been?) stars in NBC’s new sitcom Bent. She plays a recently divorced lawyer who hires a contractor with a reputation for womanizing to renovate her kitchen. What I’m looking forward to most? The always hilarious Jeffrey Tambor playing an aspiring musician (and the contractor’s father).
Touch premieres, 9 p.m., FOX
A sneak peek of the new Kiefer Sutherland drama was well-received earlier this year, but will fans remember and be ready come back for the full season? A step away from Jack Bauer on 24, but back in the same time slot, Sutherland stars as a New Yorker whose wife died on 9/11, and who’s now raising his 11-year-old son.
Bonus if you’re reading this on Sunday: There’s an online Q&A at 6:30pm.
The Hunger Games opens in theaters
The hottest movie of the year comes out today, but may the odds be ever in your favor in buying a ticket – advance sales on Fandango list over 1,000 showtimes already sold out, and more are going fast. Our Hunger Games special coverage has the lowdown from the cast and crew of the film, plus you can check out clips from the movie, and share your thoughts on opening day!
March Madness basketball, CBS
Regional finals continue this weekend, so keep an eye on your bracket and settle in for some serious college basketball.
Mad Men returns, 9 p.m., AMC
A season premiere just 17 months in the making, Mad Men returns Sunday night with a special two-hour episode. Are Don and Megan for real? How’s Joan doing with the baby? What pitch is Peggy working on this week? It’s been a loooong time for us to go without a scotch, so get your decanter and highball glass ready.
Readers of the Walking Dead comic waiting to see the character Michonne make her semi-promised debut on the TV show version have so far been waiting in vain. But fans of the sword-wielding zombie-slayer will soon finally be able to find out how she got to be, well, a sword-wielding zombie-slayer.
Chat live with 'Amazing Race' alums Justin Kanew and Zev Glassenberg tonight; plus, 'Walking Dead,' 'Celeb Apprentice' chats and more!
Tonight, starting at 7:45 p.m. ET/4:45 p.m. PT Amazing Race alums Justin Kanew and Zev Glassenberg will chat live with you on EW.com, take your questions, and add their running commentary to the new episode of the 20th cycle of CBS’s venerable franchise.
Known affectionately to their fans as “Team Zinger” for their repertoire of rimshot-worthy one-liners and off-the-cuff cultural commentary, Justin and Zev first distinguished themselves on Season 15 of The Amazing Race. All seemed well when the duo arrived as Team No. 1 at Phnom Penh, Cambodia. A pair of motorcycles awaited them as their reward! But then, Zev realized he’d lost his passport, and host Phil Keoghan, being the stickler for travel documents that he is, announced he wouldn’t be able to check them in until they could find it. Zev and Justin searched everywhere, but they couldn’t retrieve it before all the other teams had checked in, leading to their on-the-spot elimination. They later returned for the 18th cycle, titled Unfinished Business, where they placed fourth. Get your questions ready for Justin and Zev, and see you tonight at 7:45!
At the same time, my distinguished colleague Hillary Busis will be hosting her live chat of Once Upon a Time. And then at 9:00 p.m. ET, riff with us about all the boardroom backstabbing on Celebrity Apprentice. I know the hearts of Trekkies everywhere hang heavy this week following the firing of George Takei last Sunday, but, to co-opt The Donald’s own hyperbolic rhetoric, this will be the best…live chat…ever. It’s gonna be a yoooge event. I mean, yoooge.
Also, at 9:00 p.m. we have our live chat of The Walking Dead. Still grieving for poor, achingly self-righteous Dale after he was torn apart by a walker last week? Commiserate with your fellow fans and mourn him together. Consider our live chat Dale’s wake.
With all of our chats we’ll be going a few minutes (or more) after the episode ends, so you can collect your thoughts and share your instant feedback about what you just saw, especially if it was a shocker. You just know that if there’s a three-way brawl between Penn Jillette, Arsenio Hall, and Lou Ferrigno on Celebrity Apprentice you’ll have to weigh in, right? Look forward to chatting with you tonight!
Norman Reedus, beloved star of The Walking Dead, logged on to EW.com tonight to answer your questions in the wake of tonight’s shocking episode, “Judge, Jury, Executioner.” If you’ve seen it, you know a beloved character met his fate, with a little help from Reedus’ Daryl Dixon. Seriously, if you thought that Sophia-is-a-zombie reveal was mind-blowing, your head must be positively spinning right now. So click on the live chat below, after the jump, to read the full transcript of what Norman had to say: READ FULL STORY
Norman Reedus, the beloved actor who each week brings to life The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon, the most badass character on TV, will be joining us for an EW.com live chat tonight at 9 p.m. ET. He’ll be taking your questions and adding his running commentary to the new episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” in which Rick ends up siding with Shane over the fate of that crippled interloper, Randall, leading Dale to fear the group is losing its humanity. It’s an explosive episode, featuring plenty of Stanley Kramer-worthy oratorical fireworks from Dale. Not to mention a particularly vivid demonstration of Daryl’s mastery of “enhanced interrogation” techniques.
If you’re a male between the ages of 23 and 28, odds are you had a poster of The Boondock Saints featuring Reedus hanging on your college dorm room’s wall. READ FULL STORY
Norman Reedus, the beloved actor who each week brings to life The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon, the most badass character on TV, will be joining us for an EW.com live chat this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. He’ll be taking your questions and adding his running commentary to the new episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” in which Rick ends up siding with Shane, leading Dale to fear the group is losing its humanity.
If you’re a male between the ages of 23 and 28, odds are you also had a poster of The Boondock Saints featuring Reedus hanging on your college dorm room’s wall. Though he already had a strong following because of Troy Duffy’s 1999 cult film, he’s proven to be, for many, the true breakout star of The Walking Dead. His haunted, humane, profoundly vulnerable Daryl flies in the face of the many Deliverance-style hixploitation stereotypes that continue to glut pop culture. Of course, that doesn’t mean he can’t be handy with a crossbow! In our chat he’ll talk about season 2, what the death of Sophia means for Daryl, whether romantic sparks with Carol are in Daryl’s future, and whether his relationship with terrifying older brother Merle really is as love-hate as it seems. Get your questions ready, and see you at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday.
