'30 Rock': Breaking up and breaking bad

Jack and Avery headed off to Canada for one last rendezvous before their baby arrived. Unfortunately, Baby D had other plans, and decided to make her debut early. READ FULL STORY

'Bones' proposal episode: How screwed is Hannah?

Bones-613Image Credit: Ray Mickshaw/FoxDespite Bones producers (and writers) repeatedly telling us how much Brennan likes Booth’s girlfriend Hannah — which means we should, too — a large portion of the audience has never warmed to the character. That makes tonight’s episode, in which Booth and Sweets decide in the opening booze-filled scene to propose to each of their girlfriends, particularly interesting. Assuming Booth does end up popping the question, Hannah will be damned if she says “I do” and, perhaps, damned if she doesn’t. (Why wouldn’t she want to marry our Seeley?) How do you hope this plays out? And how do you think this plays out?  READ FULL STORY

'The Good Wife': What's going to happen next week between Alicia and Will?

good-wifeImage Credit: Craig Blankenhorn/CBSIt’s taken me awhile to warm to Alicia’s brother on The Good Wife, but now that the promo for the Feb. 15 episode has shown him encouraging her to talk to Will about her feelings (and that second voicemail he left her), he’s my new best friend. I was already on a good TV-induced high from Will and Diane’s low-five last night after they tricked Derrick into firing some of his people, but when the promo embedded below started — “for this wife the waiting is finally over” — I almost passed out. How do you think that conversation, pictured, will play out? READ FULL STORY

Oscar promo: James Franco knows how to handle a wardrobe malfunction

The first on-air promo with Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway has arrived, and it shows the two of them “preparing for every possible Oscar emergency.” The highlight, obviously, is when he tackles her as she begins to have a wardrobe malfunction. Watch it below. Does it get you excited for their hosting gig? It did me. I’m curious what their playful energy will yield. And I’m suddenly hoping they continue the traditional bit of placing the host(s) in the Best Picture nominees. (Which would be easy for 127 Hours.) How would The Social Network have looked if Franco had starred in it? How would Black Swan have been different had it been Hathaway instead of Natalie Portman? I’m genuinely curious. I’d love to see them give us an actual taste of it before hitting us with the comedic twist. What’s your dream bit for these two now? If you need inspiration, here’s your full list of Oscar nominees.

Chloe Moretz to guest on '30 Rock'... but as what?

Chloe-MoretzImage Credit: Jon Furniss/WireImage.comChloe Moretz, star of Kick-Ass and Let Me In, is in New York City this week filming an episode of NBC’s 30 Rock. We know this because she tweeted it. And because the network confirms it. The show’s rep, however, won’t reveal what part 13-year-old Moretz is playing. Care to guess, PopWatchers? I’m thinking maybe Liz gets some kind of Sliding Doors episode, and we find out what her life would have been like if she hadn’t been head writer at TGS — and Moretz plays her smart-mouthed daughter. Or, maybe it’s time for a Pete-centric episode – and she plays his smart-mouthed daughter. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' kiss tonight: What was your most eagerly-anticipated prime-time pucker? And was it worth the wait?

castle-kissImage Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC/AP ImagesTonight, Beckett and Castle lock lips on Castle (ABC, 10 p.m. ET). EW’s spoiler maven Sandra Gonzalez, who will post an exclusive interview with the episode’s writers after it airs over on our Inside TV blog, just explained to me what she meant when she recently teased that the kiss wasn’t even the best part of the episode. When she finished describing her two favorite moments from the hour, she was collapsed in her chair, physically spent after experiencing the kind of emotional afterglow that those of us who truly love TV know all too well. Because those same people know how will-they-or-won’t-they couples tend to work on TV– and because we can clearly see Beckett looking at someone out of the corner of her eye in the sneak peek of the kiss — we’re prepared for this NOT to be the start of a beautiful romance.

But it still needs to do two things to be satisfying to viewers: READ FULL STORY

'Hannah Montana Forever': Promo for final episode has best freeze frame ever

hannah-montanaHannah Montana concludes its four-season run on the Disney Channel this Sunday, and the promo for the series finale shows Miley (Miley Cyrus) having to make THE BIGGEST DECISION EVER — doing a movie or going to college. I really have no idea which way she’s gonna go. When she flops herself on the couch and says, “I want this part more than anything else in the world,” I’m thinking movie. But then we see what appears to be young co-eds in pajamas at a dorm and I’m thinking college. But then she’s at an airport — movie? Then she looks at a framed graduation photo sitting in a set that looks like it’s been borrowed from a soap opera — movie, but she quits, and then college? What’s your guess? Watch the promo below.  READ FULL STORY

What midseason TV has you hot and bothered?

Parks-Recreation-Amy-NickImage Credit: Justin Lubin/NBCWatching TV this week is like participating in the opening scene of The Walking Dead — you’re an aimless zombies shuffling around on abandoned city streets, ready to lunge at a tasty rerun of The Barefoot Contessa at any moment. But lo! The 2011 midseason TV cometh. Hark! A new crop of shameless teenagers think they can sing. Paula Abdul will presumably live to dance. Oh, there will be so much new TV in January. And bitter cold, and depression, and fat. But focus on the TV! So much TV. (Check out our lists of start dates for the broadcast networks and the cable networks.)

What midseason TV are you dying to see right now? My top five:

5. TV Land’s Retired at 35, starring Jessica Walter as a hopefully Lucille Bluth-esque mom
4. NBC’s David E. Kelley/Kathy Bates legal drama, Harry’s Law
3. Survivor: Redemption Island, because Dalton Ross insists it’s going to be great and I know I’ll constantly be messing up and calling it Temptation Island.
2. Parks and Recreation. Finally.
1. American Idol — looking forward to the challenge of telling J. Lo and S. Ty apart!

What are yours? Also, what would you realistically pay to watch your No. 1 choice on-demand RIGHT NOW? I had myself convinced I’d blow $50 to see the Idol premiere because it’s going to be such a mindf—, but when I really thought about it and clicked over to Paypal, I realized it was probably more like $4.99, and it would probably have to include some sort of special “Steven Tyler Lip Dub” package, so…no. The real answer is zero dollars. Oh well!

'Breaking Dawn' photo: And with this, Bill Condon proves he's our people

Breaking-Dawn-photoIn case you missed Bill Condon’s Thanksgiving present to Twilight fans on Twitter, behold the first non-paparazzi photo from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. Condon posted it on the film’s official Twitter page Nov. 25. He’s a classy Oscar winner, so he didn’t go with the accompanying text I would have: SEX! SEX! SEX! But still, more than 64,000 people have viewed the honeymoon shot. (In the book, Edward bites a pillow, or two, instead of Bella’s neck during their first night together, hence the feathers.) I love that this is the first photo he chose to reveal. He’s letting us know we’ll get our romance, and even if we won’t be seeing things that would garner the film an R rating, it’ll still get us excited.

'Vampire Diaries': Could Jules give Matt a story line? What's Elijah's offer?

Annette Brown/The CW

As our Vampire Diaries withdrawal continues, all fans have to obsess over are episode descriptions, promos, and photos for 2010’s remaining episodes, the Dec. 2 return, and the Dec. 9 midseason cliffhanger. Watch the promo for the first hour, “The Sacrifice,” below. Elena doesn’t want the others to continue risking their lives to save her, so she comes up with her own plan. Jeremy tries to help Bonnie retrieve the moonstone from Katherine, and, we’re guessing, gets a little too close to her and Stefan must come to his rescue. Alaric finally gets naked. And yet, it’s the Dec. 9 synopsis — and accompanying photos — that we find most intriguing…

In “By the Light of the Moon,” the full moon approaches, which means Tyler will be transforming. That exec producer Julie Plec had already filled us in on. We also already knew that Damon and Alaric will rekindle their bromance — turns out it’s to investigate the arrival of Jules (guest star Michaela McManus, pictured), who shows up in Mystic Falls searching for her missing friend, Mason, and, possibly, a shirt that covers her bra. (Actually, I dig that she dresses sexier than the younger ladies on the show, and should she turn out to be a werewolf, like Mason, it would make sense that her body runs hot and she wears as little as possible.)

What I like about these two photos of her is 1) We can’t tell what’s behind that smile of Damon’s. Is it him welcoming her to town, pretending to be genuine; him toasting her because she’s as big a flirt as he is; or him being a smartass and the toast is “Game on”? 2) She’s talking to Matt. Is that just because he’s on the clock at The Grill, or could he fall for the older woman, which, if she is a werewolf, could get very interesting? Clearly, I’m hoping for the latter, because I want to see more of Zach Roerig, and a game of Matt in the Middle would get him some more screentime. Even though Caroline set Matt free, she would be jealous, and her desire to figuratively kill Jules could become literal since wolves and vamps are mortal enemies. Fun! READ FULL STORY
