'Dancing With the Stars': Elizabeth Berkley finally channels Jessie Spano in an 'I'm So Excited' jive

Have my 17 (SEVENTEEN!) seasons of watching Dancing With the Stars just been validated? Don’t you dare answer that realistically. On tonight’s “Most Memorable Year of My Life” show (read our full recap), Elizabeth Berkley Lauren paid homage to the finest and fiercest caffeine pill dance party in television history: Jessie Spano’s “I’m so excited! I’m so… scared!” breakdown in a 1990 episode of Saved by the Bell.

Young Jessie and A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez, visiting from the Extra! set nearby) could never have predicted…that Zack Morris would be tweeting @ them, 23 years later, as they re-proclaimed their love in a televised ballroom! (Last part did not happen.)

Revel in the nostalgia/weep for humanity below. Don’t be scared! You need it to study. Here’s the video: READ FULL STORY

Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.56.58 PM

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Bad' tribute: Hank's journey from plot device to hero

[Spoilers for last night’s episode of Breaking Bad follow.]

If Breaking Bad‘s first season had ended with the death of Walt’s boorish brother-in-law, it’s safe to say nobody would have been sad to see him go. (Granted, that’s partially because Breaking Bad‘s initial audience was tiny.) At that point, Hank wasn’t a person so much as an obstacle to be overcome. When the DEA agent did get screen time, he was obnoxious enough to sap away any of Dean Norris’s innate likeability.

There Should Be a Sequel: 'My Best Friend's Wedding'

Every week, EW will imagine a sequel to a movie that we wish would happen — no matter how unlikely the idea really is.

After 1997’s My Best Friend’s Wedding grossed $127 million at the domestic box office, there was talk of a sequel. After all, did we really think sports writer Michael (Dermot Mulroney) and young, tone-deaf Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) were going to last, even if restaurant critic Julianne (Julia Roberts) conceded defeat and loaned the couple her song with Michael for their wedding dance? No! A quick Google search shows producer Jerry Zucker being quoted in 2001 saying that one idea bandied about was, in fact, My Best Friend’s Divorce, which would find Michael and Kimmy on the rocks and Julianne having to decide whether to stage another coup. “It seemed like a contrived way to get those people together again. … We cared too much about the original story to ruin it,” he said.

'Duck Dynasty' premiere: Wait, did I just cry?

I had to see what this Duck Dynasty situation was all about. Little did I know that by tuning in for Wednesday’s season 4 premiere, I’d be entering a WORLD OF TEARS prompted by the pop-up vow renewal ceremony of Willie’s parents — Phil Robertson and his wife of 48 years and counting, Miss Kay.

Phil is instantly my favorite character, a thoughtful voice of reason who quietly arrives at the punchline (somehow nearly every sentence he deadpans has a punchline) at his own pace. “Miss Kay, you wanna know something?” he asked his wife as they sat along the creek. “You are my best buddy.” READ FULL STORY

Having already gotten to know Suits star Patrick J. Adams better with an EW Pop Culture Personality Test, it’s only right that we bring in Meghan Markle, who plays his onscreen love interest Rachel, for questioning. And her answers do not disappoint. Watch the video below to find out which Beverly Hills, 90210 actor was her first celebrity crush and which Baywatch lifeguard received the only fan letter she’s ever written. READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' star Carrie Preston takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Her character, Arlene, may still be in mourning on HBO’s True Blood, but Carrie Preston was all smiles when she stopped by EW recently to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Even when we got her talking about the show her husband, Michael Emerson, once caught her sobbing while watching.

She also shares the TV show that makes her yell at the TV (Game of Thrones spoiler alert!), the show she wishes would’ve gone on forever, the movie she has to watch every time she spots it on cable, the former neighbor she wrote a fan letter to, and her geekiest possession. READ FULL STORY

'The To Do List': Laugh, reminisce, and even get a little misty

The To Do List is a hilarious, raunchy comedy about class of 1993 valedictorian Brandy Klark (Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza) checking off various acts on the hand-written spreadsheet she keeps in her Trapper Keeper. It’s all in preparation for losing her virginity to Rusty Waters (Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter), a hot college guy and fellow summer lifeguard who does a mean acoustic version of Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” And, even with all the bawdiness, it made me tear up. SPOILER ALERT! READ FULL STORY

Martin Freeman says farewell to Bilbo Baggins -- PHOTO

Bilbo-Baggins.jpg

Here’s a bittersweet bit of second-breakfast dessert: A few hours ago, Peter Jackson revealed that Martin Freeman had just shot his last scene as Bilbo Baggins.

This marks the end of the Sherlock actor’s two-and-a-half-year journey to and from Bag End — and nearly the end of Jackson’s own Tolkien immersion as well. “We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups,” Jackson writes on Facebook. The good bad hairy news: From here on out, he adds, “it’s wall to wall dwarves.” (Dwarfs are very upsetting.)

What would have happened on 'Happy Endings' season 4? Producers say...

The bittersweet saga of Happy Endings still has a sad conclusion: No other network stepped up to the kickball field’s home plate after ABC killed the show in May, meaning that Brad, Jane, Penny, Alex, Dave, and Max — Maaaax!! — will live on only in our weird fanfiction memories.

That said, at least we’re getting a bit of closure. Series creator David Caspe and Executive Producer Jonathan Groff (no, not that Jonathan Groff) recently did a postmortem interview with TVLine in which they discussed the show’s fate — “For me, the show’s a gigantic success,” said Caspe, who is such a Dave — and teased a few of the storylines fans could have expected if Happy Endings had survived to see 2014.
