Michael Buble reschedules concert to attend Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, remains Canadian

We’ve always liked Michael Buble, and now we know why: He announced to fans yesterday that he was rescheduling tonight’s concert at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun to Thursday night so he could attend Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in his hometown, Vancouver. Technically, the message on Bublé’s website says the change in date is to “accommodate all ‘Die-Hard’ hockey fans in the Northeast, so they can view game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals,” which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. It’s convenient for him that his beloved Canucks are facing off against the Boston Bruins so that sounds somewhat altruistic instead of entirely (and wonderfully) self-indulgent.

Bublé’s fans, at least the ones who know him well, will likely forgive him the inconvenience: READ FULL STORY

Why 'Parks and Rec,' 'Community,' and 'Justified' can hope for an Emmy nod: Thank the TCA Awards!

Earlier this week, nominations for the 27th annual Television Critics Association Awards were announced. With Emmy nomination ballots not due until June 24 (nominations are announced July 14), we got to wondering what the critics’ picks could tell us about the Academy’s. After comparing the last 10 years’ worth of nominations, here are four predictions:

• When a primetime comedy makes it into the TCA’s all-encompassing Program of the Year category — which has only happened four times between 2001 and 2010 — it always earns an Emmy nomination. That means Parks and Recreation — the sole comedy in TCA’s 2011 Program of the Year category — should earn its first Emmy nod for Outstanding Comedy Series.  READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' returns THIS MONTH. Time to start thinking about who Sookie should sleep with first. Poll!

Have you heard that True Blood returns June 26? Yeah, we thought so. But look at this way: Now that it’s June 1, the level of your anticipation isn’t quite so freakish. As Pam suggests in the latest promo, embedded below, Sookie needs someone. Whose arms are you hoping she ends up in first? Do not let the accompanying photo sway you. READ FULL STORY

Moviegoer etiquette: What food is acceptable to smuggle into a theater?

I came out of my TV cave yesterday and decided that three months was far too long to have gone without seeing a new movie. If you were on Twitter around 5 p.m., you might have even been one of the kind people who helped me pick which movie to go see. (Spoiler: Most people said Bridesmaids, so that won.) Only, my rare moviegoing experience took a turn for the unpleasant shortly after the flick began, when the person next to me decided it was a great opportunity to eat his cheeseburgerREAD FULL STORY

'Bachelorette': Should producers tell Ashley the truth about Bentley? Poll!

about her.” It’s tough to watch Ashley fall for the guy knowing from the “this season on The Bachelorette” promo embedded below that she’ll end up in the fetal position sobbing over him (or at least that’s what we’re led to believe). But then again, Ashley did get a warning from a franchise alum who’s friends with Bentley’s ex-wife claiming that he’s not on the show “for the right reasons” — and she chose not to ask him point blank about it because he’s hot. (Instead, she just asked him to always be honest with her and gave him a rose last, which, I’m guessing, hurt his pride enough to make him want to play her ever harder.) So, what’s your verdict? Vote in the poll below. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' starts tonight: Let the ab parade and heartbreak begin!

The seventh edition of The Bachelorette premieres tonight (ABC, 9 p.m. ET), and we’ll find out if aspiring dentist Ashley Hebert, who let her mind get in the way of her heart when vying for Brad Womack, can find a husband among the 25 men producers have selected for herEntertainment Weekly executive editor Kristen Baldwin will return with her weekly recap, while host Chris Harrison is back with his weekly blog. While we await their expert analysis, here’s what I anticipate judging from the early promos:

• A lot of skin. These men are so cut, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had to remove their shirts during casting. (Question for Harrison!)

• A lot of needless drama. If producers really wanted to make sure all contestants were on the show for the right reason (to find love), they could. If he says, “I’m gonna win,” he’s not. Look out for a man named Bentley. Ashley heard from a fellow Bachelor alum who’s friendly with his ex-wife that he’s supposedly there to promote his business. Ashley chooses not to ask him about it directly, but instead trust the sincere vibe he’s not giving off. In the second clip embedded below, he explains that he already knows it won’t work, that he could care less, and that maybe he would feel differently if Emily Maynard were the Bachelorette. I hope he gets kneed in the nuts at some point.

• A lot of booze. In the web exclusive clip below, we see contestant Tim is rendered incoherent for his first sit-down chat with Ashley and eventually passes out. You can judge him. As someone who has to have at least two mojitos in her to make it through this show, I shouldn’t.  READ FULL STORY

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
