THE FOLLOWING is back this Monday!

And while the show’s return might be good news for fans, unfortunately it doesn’t bode well for Ryan Hardy and Mike Weston: though Joe is behind bars, their problems are only getting started as they deal with new faces who are stirring up trouble, as well as a mysterious big bad.

I sat down with Kevin Bacon (Ryan) and Shawn Ashmore (Mike) to talk about what’s in store for season 3, their characters’ dynamic, and why Michael Ealy’s Theo is a “big unknown”…

BACKSTROM Video: Kris Polaha Reveals the Origins of the Newly-Revealed Romance — and Brainstorms Potential (Awkward) Couple Names

February 27, 2015 by  
Filed under Backstrom

BACKSTROM revealed a secret romance in last night’s episode, “Ancient, Chinese, Secret.”

According to series star Kristoffer Polaha (Niedermeyer), the seeds were planted from the start, as he told his co-star, Beatrice Rosen (Paquet) they should just play that there was something there. And, voilà!

On the show’s Vancouver set, Polaha spoke with reporters about the romantic revelation…and, after learning what the term “shipper” means, tried to help brainstorm what the couple’s name should be…

Comments Off on THE LAST MAN ON EARTH: Will Forte, Chris Miller, and Phil Lord Preview Fox’s Unique New Comedy

last-man-on-earth-featured

It’s not uncommon for people associated with shows to claim they’re doing something that hasn’t been done on television before. Occasionally, they’re at least partially correct. But when talking about the new Fox comedy, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, it’s hard to think of any other series that has attempted something quite like this — there is nothing on television to hold it up against, the show is its own unique being.

The basic premise is simple: Phil Miller (Will Forte) is, as the title suggests, the last man in the world. He traveled all over looking for another living being, and has now settled in Arizona (with some ball buddies).

Beyond that? The series gets a bit more complicated, as layers of the show are pulled back that really can’t be discussed until it airs.

So in the meantime, I asked THE LAST MAN ON EARTH executive producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord what they want viewers to know about the series pre-air, and spoke with series star (and creator) Forte about acting solo…

MSW_107_00064_hires1In tonight’s brand new episode of MAN SEEKING WOMAN, Josh and Mike head to a destination wedding…in Hell.

But before the duo can get there, Josh — in a funk from his hookup with his ex, Maggie, being a one-time thing — is encouraged by his sister, Liz, to come out for a night of dancing with her and her boyfriend. But, with this being MAN SEEKING WOMAN, the “dancing” isn’t what you might expect.

Comments Off on PARKS AND RECREATION: The Cast Sings ‘Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian’ on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS

PARKS AND RECREATION said its goodbye on NBC last night — and how incredible was that episode?! — and after the hour aired, the entire cast appeared on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS.

If you’re a PARKS fan, the entire LATE NIGHT episode is worth watching, but if you need a little more immediate PARKS in your life post-finale, the cast singing “Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian” (and two unexpected people making out) should do the trick…

Comments Off on BACKSTROM Exclusive Video: The Cast (and Hart Hanson) Goof Around While Promoting the Series

backstrom-tinyThink you know the new Fox series, BACKSTROM? Well, just wait until you hear the cast and creator Hart Hanson attempt to explain it.

In the (hilarious) exclusive video below, the cast — Rainn Wilson, Dennis Haysbert, Genevieve Angelson, Kristoffer Polaha, Page Kennedy, Beatrice Rosen, and Thomas Dekker — and Hanson share their pitches for the show, but can’t get it quite right. There are a lot of giggles, pitches to show Wilson’s butt on network TV, some misspeaking (nope, this isn’t taking place in the “special victims unit”), a ton of poking fun at each other, and general hilarity.

Just try to watch this video and keep a straight face… Read more

Comments Off on THE VOICE Audition Highlight: Meghan Linsey Sings ‘Love Hurts’

THE VOICE is an incredibly platform for discovering new talent, but one of the most memorable auditions of the night (for me) was Meghan Linsey…AKA one half of the country music duo, Steel Magnolia.

Linsey — who at one point toured with THE VOICE coach Blake Shelton — made an impression going solo…and managed to get multiple chairs to turn.

Miss the audition? Check it out now…

THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON: Christina Aguilera Sings as Britney Spears, Cher, and Shakira in ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’

THE VOICE coach Christina Aguilera stopped by THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON on Monday night, and given her vocal talents, host Jimmy Fallon had her play “Wheel of Musical Impressions.”

The “random” stops had Aguilera impersonating Cher (her BURLESQUE co-star), Britney Spears (her MICKEY MOUSE CLUB co-star), and Shakira (a fellow VOICE coach), but man, Aguilera was spot-on.
