It’s sectionals on tomorrow night’s Glee, and Fox has posted a tease online that shows New Directions doing a Jackson family tribute (including Ms. Jackson’s “Control”) and the Trouble Tones taking on Destiny’s Child (“Survivor”). I appreciate that both groups are putting more emphasis on choreography than we’ve seen in the past — none of that pacing and changing formations — but both dance crews look Finn-awkward to me. A second sneak peek shows what Chord Overstreet’s Sam has been up to since we last saw him:
auditioning for Magic Mike stripping under the name White Chocolate! “Cory [Monteith], the whole time we’re doing it, he’s got his phone out,” Overstreet says of filming his return. “I’m like ‘Cory, if you tweet one of those videos, I swear I’m going to kill you.’” (Cut to Monteith proudly showing a picture on his phone.) Sam’s also been learning Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup,” which is his first song back. Watch the previews below. READ FULL STORY

Last night, the promo USA aired for the Dec. 6 season finale of Covert Affairs definitely got fans talking. “All season long, he was always there for her,” the voiceover says of Christopher Gorham’s Auggie and Piper Perabo’s Annie. “Now, will admitting her true feelings be her toughest mission yet?” The real question is, was it just the show’s female fans doing all the tweeting? Here’s why I’m asking: Yesterday, I chatted with Gorham for two items we’ll post next week: A fun, spoiler-free EW Pop Culture Personality Test before the finale and a juicy postmortem Q&A after it airs. During the personality test portion of our chat, I asked him to name a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple he roots for… READ FULL STORY
Consider this a PopWatch PSA: If there’s a holiday film you look forward to seeing each year, start checking the listings now. You don’t want to get a confessional e-mail from your friend Robb the morning after titled “My Hallmark Night” detailing how he stayed up late watching TV movies, including one of your favorites, 1999′s A Season for Miracles (starring Carla Gugino as the aunt who goes on the run with her niece and nephew to keep the kids together, David Conrad as the cop who falls for her, and Patty Duke as the angel who SPOILER ALERT! orchestrates their happily ever after). Luckily, it repeats Dec. 3 at 2 a.m. ET and Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. ET.
So, which holiday movie would it kill you to miss? My must-see is Flirting With Forty, the Lifetime movie starring Robert Buckley as the surfing instructor who gifts long-distance love Heather Locklear a bikini that she wears to take out the garbage on New Year’s Eve. READ FULL STORY
The mystery surrounding Natalie Wood’s death 30 years ago may not have been a recent topic of conversation for most people until police announced they were reopening the case last week. But as Slate’s Brow Beat blog keenly observed, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld worked it into a debate about whether reunions are ever a good idea during the seventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Watch the scene below.
And as for Robert Wagner’s ill-timed return to NCIS last night: His character, Tony DiNozzo’s con man father, was — spoiler alert! — ultimately cleared of any wrong doing after he woke up with a dead man in the trunk of his rented Rolls. He’d been roofied at a bar and framed by the lawyer of a business associate who’d just screwed them both. READ FULL STORY
If you’re not caught up on Sons of Anarchy, stop reading now.
If you are, have you recovered from these last two weeks? I was physically out of breath watching “Hands,” the Nov. 8 episode in which we endured the painful wait for Clay’s hitman to make his move on Tara and saw Clay beat Gemma. Last night’s episode, “Call of Duty,” piled onto the tension. READ FULL STORY
Now that we’ve seen trailers for both Mirror, Mirror (the rom-com take on a battle-ready Snow White starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, and Armie Hammer) and Snow White and the Huntsman (the darker, more action-filled version starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth), which film’s release are you more eagerly awaiting? Let’s put it to a vote. If you need help, we’ll break it down for you. READ FULL STORY
Let the fandom wars explode!
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer Lawrence dismissed fan fears that Hunger Games will just be Twilight: Round 2, with Team Peeta and Team Gale. “Hunger Games is not Twilight,” she explained.
While that is obviously true to anyone who has read both franchises’ source material, the remarks should be encouraging for fans who have been fearful that Team Peeta shirts weren’t too far off on the horizon. Especially in the first tome, a triangle isn’t really apparent — and it’s never the main plot in the way Edward/Jacob/Bella is in Twilight. Much more pressing for Katniss is, you know, the fellow Tributes who are trying to kill her.
For me, this clarification by Lawrence is incredibly encouraging. READ FULL STORY
Male stripper movie Magic Mike has already proven itself a gift that keeps on giving. Two of the stars are making headlines today for talking about the movie that they’re not even promoting yet. Matt Bomer shared a great story with MTV News about his first run-in with a thong. “I had never worn a thong before, so the first time I tried it, I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,” he said. “I had to call a wardrobe person in and go, ‘Something’s wrong with my thong, you guys. I think we’re gonna have to figure this out,’ and they’re like, ‘Uh, yeah your legs are in the wrong holes.’ So, that was step one.” He went on to explain that there’s a technique to tearaway clothes, and that director Steven Soderbergh made him feel like he was shooting a documentary. Combine those two thoughts, and you have the makings of the best DVD featurette ever.
Co-star Joe Manganiello, meanwhile, dished to the LA Times‘ Ministry of Gossip about the routines in the film, which is a comedy. (“It’s like Animal House and Hangover funny,” Manganiello said.) Each stripper has his own theme. READ FULL STORY

Guest blogger Joshua Malina: Top 7 reasons 'Sports Night' will never get 'Arrested Development'-style revival
Last night I signed into my primary news source and was made aware by multiple tweets that Arrested Development — Mitch Hurwitz’s groundbreakingly kick-ass comedy — was slated to return to the air after a five-year absence. I’m delighted at the prospect, though I take it all with a grain of salt. Announcements of the show’s return have now run longer than the original series. Still, here’s hoping it happens.
On the heels of the A.D. bombshell, folks have been tweeting me throughout the day asking when they can expect the return of Sports Night, Aaron Sorkin’s proto-dramedy about the hijinks, hilarity, and heartbreak that go on behind the scenes of a cable sports show. The answer — in brief — is “Never.” Don’t get me wrong. I’d sign up now. I mean what am I doing today? I’m writing this. Hell, I’d be open to discussing a second season of Big Shots, or a third episode of Imagine That. I’m not the problem, people. But I have aggregated some of the issues that prevent a Sports Night reunion. Herewith, the top 7 reasons it’ll never happen: READ FULL STORY
