Sneak Peek of TNT's Original Movie 'Good Morning, Killer' (EXCLUSIVE)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 13th 2011 4:00PM
'Good Morning, Killer,' the latest in TNT's Mystery Movie Night series (premieres Tues., Dec. 13, 9PM ET), is based on April Smith's novel of the same name about FBI Agent Ana Grey.

The story follows Grey (played by 'Army Wives' star Catherine Bell) as she tracks a serial kidnapper. Grey gets close with one of the victims just as the suspect decides to switch things up, making her job even harder.

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at the movie, helmed by Smith and co-starring Cole Hauser, Titus Welliver and William Devane, that sets up the eerie premise.

Oprah's 'Your OWN Show' Winner Premieres 'Rollin' With Zach' (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 12th 2011 10:00AM
Zach Anner, 'Rollin' With Zach'When Oprah Winfrey started her OWN network, she brought along her usual crew of experts to fill the line-up, but she also launched a nation-wide search for new personalities, with possibly the best reality TV competition prize ever: the winner would receive their own OWN show.

The series' first season ended in February with the announcement of a double win -- both cooking show host hopeful Kristina Kuzmic and comedian travel show host wannabe Zach Anner received new series, and we've got an exclusive sneak peek at one of them, 'Rollin' With Zach' (premieres on Mon., Dec. 12, 8PM ET on OWN).

Zach's comedic skills give his new travel show an interesting spin, but it's the fact that he's literally rolling places that intrigues even more -- his cerebral palsy means he's confined to a wheelchair. Obviously, that doesn't slow him down; the series' first two premiere episodes feature him flying high above Chicago on carnival swings and testing out the local Greek delicacies. Opa to Oprah, indeed!

Joe Rogan On the Bigger, Crazier 'Fear Factor' Return

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 8th 2011 6:50PM
Joe Rogan, 'Fear Factor''Fear Factor' is back (premieres Mon., Dec. 12, 8PM ET on NBC), and I realize that you might think what I've thought all along: original host Joe Rogan is kind of a tool. But after chatting with him for quite a while -- about everything from the show's revamp and his own fears to Miley Cyrus, 'Toddlers & Tiaras' and Anthony Bourdain -- I can safely say that this quote-machine of a man might be one of the most entertaining hosts on TV.

As for 'Fear Factor,' the redux, the rumors of everything being more intense after their five-year hiatus are true. "It is bigger and crazier than it ever was before," Rogan confirms. "I hope the show lives up to fans' expectations ... I think it will."

Keep reading for more scoop on these bigger, crazier challenges and Rogan's thoughts on fame, the old celebrity guest episodes (warning: he's really not a fan of 'Diff'rent Strokes' star Todd Bridges) and why he doesn't think any celebrities, no matter how C-list, will be coming on the show this time around.

The 'Community' Cast Previews Their Gleeful Christmas Extravaganza Episode

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 8th 2011 10:00AM
Last year's 'Community' Christmas episode ranks at the top of my list of favorite holiday-themed TV episodes ever. So how will this year's stack up?

Well there's no funny clay figurines or stop-motion animation, but that's not to say it won't be as magical or uncontrollable as Abed's adventure last season. I mean, we already know there will be a rap video. In 'Regional Holiday Music' (Thurs., Dec. 8, 8PM ET on NBC), the Greendale glee club is sidelined, so the study group has to step up to sing in their place.

I caught up with Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Gillian Jacobs on the 'Community' set to hear more about their song-and-dance-filled holiday celebration, Troy and Abed's sweet rap, why this episode will be particularly gif-worthy and the "very awesome character" that 'Saturday Night Live' funnyman Taran Killam is playing.

'Toddlers & Tiaras' Mom Admits Putting Child on Applebee's Bar to Sing Lady Gaga (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 6th 2011 6:50PM
'Toddlers & Tiaras' has had some seriously questionable displays of parenting, but never before has production literally halted an interview, rewound for an instant reply and asked, "Wait, wait, what?" in utter disbelief. Until now.

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at this week's new episode (Wed., 10PM ET on TLC) where Riley and Bob's mom proves how dedicated she is to socializing her home-schooled children. "We have taken our children to several drag shows. I've had her performing 'Poker Face' on the bar at Applebee's."

Yep. Uh-huh. But don't worry -- it's not that bad. "It's not like people threw dollars at her or anything, you know? She's not a stripper." Ah, well when you put it that way ...

Nevermind five-year-old daughter Riley's reasoning for not wanting to go to an actual school: "The teacher might be mean. She might throw me in a locker. She might put a bat, a rat, and a vampire ... she might put all of those things and I'll be passed out."

What is happening in this family? Take a look to see for yourself.

Candy QueenCandy isn't just for kids -- classic children's treats have been getting a very grown-up makeover lately, and TLC is right on top of the trend.

'Grey's Anatomy' Is Getting the 'Sliding Doors' Treatment, Reuniting Derek and Addison

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 3rd 2011 10:00AM
Twitter got 'Grey's Anatomy' fans very excited this week, but were the tweets misleading?

'Private Practice' star Kate Walsh and the shows' creator Shonda Rhimes were all a-tweet about Walsh being back on the 'Grey's' set to shoot. But it's not another crossover episode (although Rhimes promises there will be one again soon) -- Walsh's Addison is there to reunite with her TV ex Derek (Patrick Dempsey) for a "what if?" episode.

TV Line is reporting that a very special February sweeps episode of 'Grey's' will see the gang at Seattle Grace in an alternate reality. A very alternate reality, one where Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) isn't so dark and twisty, her surgical pro mom Ellis (Kate Burton) never got Alzheimer's and -- brace yourselves, MerDer diehards -- Addison and Derek never broke up.

EXCLUSIVE First Look: A TV Wedding, 'Hawaii Five-0' Style

A 'Hawaii Five-0' wedding'Lost' alums Daniel Dae Kim and Reiko Aylesworth have had plenty of special events to celebrate on the big island, but this one takes the cake.

Yep, the 'Hawaii Five-0' wedding is almost here, and we've got the exclusive first look at the big day. In 'Alaheo Pau'ole' (Mon., Dec. 12, 10PM ET on CBS) -- which translates to "Gone Forever" -- Chin and Malia are tying the knot, but not before the Five-0 are called to investigate a crime or two. It seems a man was left for dead in an abandoned WWII bunker, and that is somehow tied to a Jane Doe case the Capt. Fryer (Tom Sizemore) is working on.

So will the complicated case put the kibosh on the wedding celebration? Doesn't look like it. Check out these five exclusive pictures, including a peek behind-the-scenes, after the jump.

The Month That Made Me Love Kelly Ripa

Kelly RipaKelly Ripa is cute and fashionable and does a helluva job making me believe I need shiny new energy efficient appliances in my home. But still, I've never really been a fan. Until now.

Yes, TV people, this was the month that made me love Kelly Ripa. She's now charming audiences sans Regis every morning with a roundup of guest co-hosts for 'Live! With Kelly' that makes me think someone's picking names out of a deep and diverse celebrity-filled hat over there. And you know what? The chemistry is totally there, with all of them.

But that's not what turned the tides and made me see the bright, talk show host light about Kelly Ripa. Here are just a few recent examples of her media perfection, in and outside of her 'Live!' day job.

Jonah Hill Talks the Fate of 'Allen Gregory,' '21 Jump Street' & Co-Hosting 'Live! With Kelly'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 2nd 2011 11:00AM
Jonah HillFrom Oscar buzzy sports drama 'Moneyball' with Brad Pitt, to his turn re-imagining an '80s classic with the big screen '21 Jump Street,' to his Fox animated series 'Allen Gregory' and a stint co-hosting 'Live! with Kelly' next week, it's safe to say that Jonah Hill is having an awesomely schizophrenic moment in his career.

I caught up with the actor/writer/producer/funnyman to find out about the fate of 'Allen Gregory' (season finale airs Sun., Dec. 4, 8:30PM ET on Fox), his absurdly inappropriate animated series that finds him voicing a precocious seven-year-old who sips fine wine and lusts after his geriatric school principal. The show's gotten mixed reviews and has done little in terms of ratings for its first batch of episodes -- and, as expected, it was nowhere on the midseason schedule Fox just unveiled -- but that's fine by Hill.

"I just think everything on TV is so boring that our show ... [laughs] look, our show is not exactly killing it in the ratings," Hill laughed. "We're not a show that's gonna win a bunch of Emmys or get 20 million viewers a week. But we totally stand by what we do and aren't gonna change that for anything. Our central love story is between a six-year-old kid and a hideous 80-year-old lady, you know? I feel really prideful that we got that on the air."

Check out the rest of our chat, including scoop on his 'Jump Street' costar Channing Tatum and his next project that'll reunite him with some old pals, after the jump.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: 'Wire' Star Dominic West on the Killer 'Adult' Role That Could Have Wrecked His Career

by Maureen Ryan, posted Dec 2nd 2011 10:00AM
'Appropriate Adult,' a British film airing Dec. 10 on Sundance Channel, is a fascinating and tremendously well-acted look into the heart of darkness. It features Dominic West and Emily Watson doing some of the best work of their careers, and it was well received when it aired in the U.K. earlier this year (the Guardian called it "mesmerizing").

But for a number of understandable reasons, West, who is best known for his leading roles in 'The Hour' and 'The Wire,' thought the role might capsize his career.

"It was something everybody advised me not to do -- certainly my wife didn't want me to do it," West said in a recent phone interview from his home in London. "It was not a popular decision in the press here until people had seen the film."

In 'Appropriate Adult,' the actor plays notorious serial killer Fred West, who, with his wife, Rosemary, murdered more than a dozen young women, including members of their own family, during the '60s and '70s. Many feared a film about Fred West would somehow glamorize the couple or otherwise minimize the damage they did to the victims and their families.

But West said the script by Neil McKay convinced him that the film offered him "a very well-written, very challenging role that I felt I couldn't give up even if it was to ruin my career, which I don't think it has yet." [See West's performance for yourself in the exclusive clip below.]

'Weed Wars' Looks Inside the Business of Medical Marijuana With a Colorful Cast of Card-Carrying Characters

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 1st 2011 6:00PM
Steve and Andrew DeAngelo, 'Weed Wars'The war on weed just got a lot more colorful.

Despite your own personal feelings about medical marijuana use and the fight to legalize the drug, the folks at Oakland's Harborside Health Center, the largest dispensary on the West Coast (and the largest retailer of cannabis on the entire planet, according to the owners), are opening their doors to show the other side of the story.

Steve DeAngelo, the founder and executive director of Harborside, and his brother Andrew, the general manager, are bringing weed to reality TV with Discovery Channel's new four-part series 'Weed Wars' (premieres Thurs., Dec. 1, 10PM ET).

They're not in the business of dealing a drug -- they provide a variety of wellness treatments and services to their card-carrying clients, as well as a assortment of cannabis-laced products, including edible treats and desserts, lotions, teas, topicals and, of course, a wide range of smokable product as well.

I caught up with the DeAngelos to talk about the issues, the fear that comes with running a business like this and the eclectic characters -- staff and clients alike -- that we'll see on the show, which makes the series reminiscent of a workplace sitcom of sorts.
