MY Olympics begins when...

Today, the Sochi Olympics officially opens. (Watch the opening ceremony tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC.) But with competition getting underway yesterday, perhaps your Olympics has already begun. Finish this sentence: MY Olympics begins when…

For me it’s when…. figure skating commentator Scott Hamilton admittedly gets a little too excited in the booth. It happened yesterday during the team figure skating event when Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu stole the men’s short program with a showstopper (watch it here) that had his fellow competitors standing and Hamilton referring to his triple lutz-triple toe combination as “sick,” before realizing his target demo may not know the meaning of that word and clarifying that it had been “awesome.”

‘Tis the season for original Christmas-themed TV movies. We’ve already spotlighted the five Hallmark Channel offerings you’ll be watching this year, whether or not you’ll admit it. Now, let’s examine Ion Television’s slate, which offers more truly inspired casting and amazing synopses.

'Sons of Anarchy' death watch: Who will be the next to die?

Spoiler alert: As we said in our recap, the Oct. 15 episode of Sons of Anarchy was the most uplifting 90 minutes of season 6 to date. Other SOA charters supported Jax’s decision to move the club out of guns. Bobby, it turns out, has actually been recruiting for SAMCRO this whole time. (You teared up. Admit it.) And Jax actually smiled. A lot.

Of course, we guessed — even before the promo for the Oct. 22 episode showed bullets and fists flying — that the reprieve wouldn’t last. Will SAMCRO rise from the ashes only to fall again? Can the club stay alive, whole, and out of jail?

We know from this week’s EW cover story that the body count will rise before season’s end. So, as we wait to see who’s next, what’s your guess? Poll below. Also, we’re revisiting the trail of casualties, season by season, to track how SAMCRO came to this current crossroads. Check out our NSFW look back at season 1, and see how the show is coming full circle. (Cue “John the Revelator.”)

'Nashville' fans will have to wait a while for the Scarlett-Gunnar afterglow. Next new ep airs...

nashville-scarlett-gunnar

If, like me, you were hoping there was a new episode of Nashville tonight so you could see what happens next between Scarlett and Gunnar, last seen finally making out on their couch (after he told her that his brother had been beaten to death — romantic?), I’ve got some bad news: The next new episode doesn’t air until March 27. I’m all for foreplay, but that’s just cruel!

While you watch the hookup again below, here’s some good news: I’m assured what happens next will be worth the wait. (And then we have the introduction of Scarlett and Gunnar’s hot new neighbor, played by The O.C.‘s Chris Carmack, to look forward to in future episodes.) But also in that March 27 episode: Rayna will appear on Katie Couric’s syndicated talk show Katie to discuss her failed marriage and career resurgence. Just how candid will she be? And will we get cutaway shots to Teddy, Deacon, and Juliette watching?  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Who do you WANT to get the cure? Who do you THINK will get the cure? POLLS!

Spoiler alert, if you haven’t watched this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries: We’re now on the island where Silas and the cure are supposedly buried. We know Stefan, Elena, and Rebekah all want the cure, and Damon doesn’t. Klaus, still stuck in Elena’s house, doesn’t want it either, but everyone, including Tyler, wants to shove it down his throat. So, who do you WANT to get the cure, and who do you THINK will get the cure? Polls below! READ FULL STORY

Sochi 2014: One year until the Winter Olympics (and return of PopWatch on Ice)

Today marks the one-year countdown to the start of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, and those inspirational NBC packages on the athletes are already taking shape: Yesterday, after skier Lindsey Vonn crashed at the Alpine World Championships and suffered a knee injury that will require surgery and six to eight months of rehab, she vowed to be ready for Russia.

In happier news, there is a $2,000 USA Luge Fantasy Camp being held in March, the 2013 USA Curling Nationals Championships will be televised later this month, and U.S. Figure Skating recently crowned its 2013 champs. Videos below. Time to care! READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Love Hewitt is all woman in 'Client List' music video: WATCH!

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Lifetime series The Client List returns March 10, and once again, she’s promoting the show with a sexy music video. This time, the “BareNaked” singer belts out “I’m a Woman” clothed in fringed lingerie. The track was produced by Randy Jackson, the video directed by Matthew Rolston, and the moves, we assume, inspired by Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera (circa Burlesque), and Channing Tatum’s spinning dubstep Magic Mike routine combined with the wet Flashdance number. So, in short, very original!  READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' season finale: Predictions? Polls!

Tonight, Sons of Anarchy‘s wild fifth season comes to an end (FX, 10 p.m. ET) with another emotionally-charged, bullet-laden, 90-minute episode. In his review for EW’s What to Watch section, Dalton Ross hints that we’ll see “the gnarliest thing the biker drama has ever put on screen,” while Ron Perlman teases for us that the season finishes at a place that’s “very dark and very sad” and “profoundly painful.” Perhaps both men are stating the obvious. Let’s get to the big questions. Polls below! READ FULL STORY
