Who's your favorite TV couple now? (Don't hurt us, Leslie and Ben!)

We’re just hours away from tonight’s two-part, one-hour season finale of Parks and Recreation, and if you want a tease of what’s in store, cocreator Mike Schur gave EW’s Dan Snierson 10 of them. Naturally, the first hint is about Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) trying to hide their new relationship from everyone so they don’t get in trouble with boss Chris (Rob Lowe). I cannot tell you how invested I am in these two staying together. Somewhere along the line — maybe in front of the wildflower mural on the second floor? — they became my favorite TV couple.

EW's Fringe Fairy Annie Barrett a living hidden gem in the 'DWTS' ballroom -- PHOTO!


In case you missed it, PopWatchers, our own Fringe Fairy/Hidden Gems expert Annie Barrett made an appearance in the front row of the Dancing With the Stars ballroom last night. Read her recap here. Instead of her regular phone call with Tom Bergeron for “The Host’s Leaderboard,” the two will be doing a video version of their weekly podcast tonight from his dressing room. Look for that to post on PopWatch Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime, let’s all wish Annie luck in achieving her Day 2 goal at Planet Mirrorballus: “to get Maks to welcome you to EW.com using only his ass. There is no reason this shouldn’t happen.”

Alex Pettyfer to star in Channing Tatum stripper movie 'Magic Mike.' Love it already.

I'll admit as someone who saw the Christopher Atkins' movie
A Night in Heaven way too young, I've got an unusual appreciation for the male stripper genre. But I truly believe Magic Mike, the film inspired by Channing Tatum's early days as an exotic dancer, moving forward is something to celebrate. First, I love that Tatum pursued turning his tale into a film whether or not his reps wanted him to. Now, I love that director Steven Soderbergh has cast Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, Beastly) as the young stripper Tatum's character will mentor. Have I ever seen Pettyfer act? No. But like most people who read his recent VMan cover story, I'm curious about the Brit who supposedly has the phrase "Thank you" tattooed on his lower abdomen -- "In case I forget to say it," he told VMan, winking. He's not afraid to speak his mind -- he's no fan of Los Angeles, as he reveals in that piece -- but he's also got a softer, quiet side, as he showed when he made his U.S. talk show debut with Ellen DeGeneres. He told her she stars in his favorite animated film (Finding Nemo), then gamely but shyly took off his dress shirt to put on the I [heart]

 Ellen T-shirt she had made for him. Watch that clip below. The 21-year-old knows how to remove a shirt. (“Do you want to help me?” he asked Ellen. Looks like a bad boy, talks like a gentleman? Sexy!)  READ FULL STORY

Andy Samberg will swim with sharks for Shark Week, probably not wearing this

Details for the 24th annual Shark Week — kicking off July 31 — are emerging. Today, Discovery announced that this year’s “Chief Shark Officer” Andy Samberg will host his own special with the working title Shark City. Per the network, “Samberg travels to the Bahamas and takes the plunge — literally jumping into the shark-filled waters to introduce viewers to a specific group of sharks that live off the shores of Nassau. They each have their own distinct personalities, quirks and feeding patterns. Learn how they size each other up, what they like to eat and what scares THEM.” That’s all the info I have, but if this is something like Shark Week regular Stuart Cove introducing Samberg to individual Caribbean reef sharks and revealing what he’s come to know about them over the years he’s led his underwater adventures, that could be totally fun. If you’re going to swim with relatively non-threatening sharks like that, you’ve got to give us something different, and finding out that this shark responds more to women in bikinis and has therefore earned whatever nickname is acceptable.  READ FULL STORY

Royal Wedding poll: Which plot point from Lifetime's 'William & Kate' do you most wish was true?

It happened: Just six days ahead of Friday’s Royal Wedding, I found myself flipping channels Saturday night at my parents’ house, landing on Lifetime’s William & Kate right as Kate Middleton fled Prince William’s 21st birthday party. (He had invited another young woman up to help him blow out the candles.) “I’m the girl he hangs out with, not the one he brings home,” Kate said to her trailing friends, echoing the snooty mean girl who’d just assured her that William wouldn’t have time to socialize with his flatmate (who he was secretly sleeping with) at this public event. And with that, I was sucked in — not only to the rest of the movie but also to the repeat so I could see what I’d missed. You can watch William & Kate, “inspired by true events,” online now. SPOILER ALERT! The most ridiculous plot points make our poll below.  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': What do you think season 3 will look like?

If you missed last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries and intend to watch it, stop reading now. SPOILERS FOLLOW. If you’re good to go, I’ve got to know: Are you suddenly hoping Klaus succeeds with the sacrifice, becomes a werevamp (or vampolf? it’s more European?), and tries to start his own hybrid race in season 3? I am.  READ FULL STORY

'Justified': Raylan's 'ready to explode.' How great will these final two episodes be?

When Justified exec producer Graham Yost teased that something horrific would happen at the end of season 2′s eleventh episode that would have Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens “ready to explode,” we should have guessed he meant the (presumed) death of his Aunt Helen, but I didn’t see it coming until Dickie and his new Coover (Noover?) showed up in her kitchen. Watch the scene below. I hate to see a strong woman like Helen go, but if it was her on the stretcher shown in next week’s kickass promo (also embedded below), I like that she went out shotgun in hand. (We know from her gasp she was hit, but there were two shots fired.) I also like how it instantly made everything more complicated: Raylan already hates his father, whose new partnership with outlaw Boyd is to blame for Helen taking a bullet, but does he hate Dickie more? Will Raylan, who had no problem going rogue this episode, use his always-loaded guns on Dickie for revenge, or will he control himself and bring him in by the book? Will Mags turn on Dickie, who she’s already all but disowned, after what he did to Givens-Bennett peacekeeper Helen, or will she not want to lose another son to Raylan? And where does this leave Raylan and Boyd, who’s shown alongside Ava raising guns at Raylan in the promo? (Really, Ava?)  READ FULL STORY

Andy Samberg to host Shark Week. Can he top Craig Ferguson?

Today, Discovery announced that Saturday Night Live‘s Andy Samberg will host the cable channel’s 24th annual Shark Week this July. Samberg’s official title is Chief Shark Officer and comes with obligations to film on-air wraps for the week-long event and host a Shark Week special during which he may dive with the apex predators. He has to swim with sharks, right? I mean, we want to see the music video we assume he’ll shoot, too, but the host of Shark Week must get wet.

Samberg has big flippers to fill: Last year’s Shark Week, hosted by known enthusiast Craig Ferguson, was watched by almost 31 million people, making it Discovery’s highest rated to date. Ferguson swam with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas during his special and his fear produced some great moments. READ FULL STORY

Royal Wedding schedule released. Down to the minute.

Am I the only one who got a little nervous reading the detailed schedule for the Royal Wedding posted on the official site? Can you imagine American celebrities announcing what time they will leave and arrive, which entrance will be used, and where the bride will be staying the night before the ceremony? I understand this is an internationally televised wedding on an entirely different scale, but I still find it fascinating (and optimistic). Below is the schedule, copied and pasted with local times. The marriage service will being at 6 a.m. ET, the carriage procession of the bride and bridegroom with a Captain’s Escort of the Household Cavalry at 7:15 a.m. ET, the Buckingham Palace balcony photo op at 8:25 a.m. ET, and the “fly past” by the Royal Air Force and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at 8:30 a.m. ET.  READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' season premiere date: The waiting stops sucking June 26

HBO has announced that True Blood‘s 12-episode fourth season will premiere June 26. (Here are more midseason cable premiere dates.) This gives us an excuse to debate two things: 1) Is Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) hotter when totally shirtless, or when wearing a leather jacket with no shirt underneath? I say the latter. To make an informed choice, you will just have to watch the promos embedded below. 2) SPOILER ALERT! Which story line other than amnesic Eric are you most looking forward to — Jason becoming one of Crystal’s kind, or Sam having a new friend, Luna, who comes with a jealous werewolf ex? Watch those teases below as well.  READ FULL STORY
