by Alex Moaba, posted Jul 30th 2011 12:30PM


We learned a lot this week. We finally saw how much jibberish the 'Real Housewives' can yell before Andy Cohen reached his breaking point. Jessica Alba learned that she can indeed have sex while pregnant. Gene Simmons learned the hard way that in order to propose to your long-time girlfriend, you must not be so exhausted that you can't form coherent sentences. Lady Gaga confirmed that a 'So You Think You Can Dance' contestant is actually talented. And Kat Von D taught us all the valuable lesson that it might not be the best idea to get a tattoo of Jesse James's face. Check out the clips after the jump, and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.

'How to Make It In America' Season 2 Trailer: Hustlin', Hijinks & Hook-Ups (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Jul 26th 2011 4:15PM
Fear not, fans of HBO-produced half-hour comedies centered around a group of male friends trying to come up in the world. Just as 'Entourage' will be finishing its eight season run, Season 2 of 'How to Make It in America' is poised to pick up the slack.

In a new 1-minute trailer -- a fast-paced montage -- we can spot a few new plot developments emerging. It starts off with Ben and Cam (Victor Rasuk) re-entering the country through airport customs, which could mean they took a business trip to Japan, where Crisp NYC gained a foothold last season. It also looks like rapper Kid Cudi might have an expanded role this year; at one point his character kisses Rachel (Lake Bell), Ben's (Bryan Greenberg) on-again and off-again ex-girlfriend, which is bound to cause some conflict. It looks like they open a Crisp storefront, and other than that, there's a lot of clinking beer bottles, launching of hair-brained schemes and parties filled with models.

Check out the trailer after the jump. 'How to Make It in America' returns to HBO this fall.

Jon Stewart Tries to Trick Mayor Bloomberg, Wants a Free Parking PassMichael Bloomberg -- the current mayor of New York City -- appeared as a guest on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). While he was on the show, Jon Stewart tried to use a little deceit, in order to get a special privilege.

Jon asked the mayor for his autograph on a glossy photo. "Just right on the line there; that'd be great ... that's terrific," he said. Next, Stewart whipped away the photo ... to reveal that the mayor had just signed a "All Access Five Borough" free parking pass that was lying underneath. Nice! Well-played, Mr. Stewart!

Cablevision and ABC Disney Feuding in NYC

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 3rd 2010 10:02AM
Cablevision, ABC Disney FeudAnother media outlet and cable company are feuding again. Only this time, some serious collateral damage hangs in the balance.

ABC Disney and Cablevision are in another programming feud with one side threatening to yank the plug out of the wall for the local New York City affiliate WABC. This time, it's over (spins the "Wheel of Media Conglomerate Feud Causes") licensing fees! Man, the wheel keeps landing on that one for some reason. I swear that one of these days, it's going to land on "custody of Jon and/or Kate."

Cablevision executive vice president Charles Schueler said ABC Disney wants an additional $40 million on top of the $200 million they have already forked over to the Mouse House. The veep released a harsh statement against the media giant that said "It is not fair to force Cablevision customers to pay a new TV tax for programming ABC Disney gives away free, both over-the-air and on the Internet. In tough economic times, it is shameful that ABC Disney would hold viewers hostage by threatening to pull the plug, and we urge them to work with us to reach a fair agreement."

How'd You Like To See A 'Burn Notice'/'White Collar' Crossover Episode?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 5:30PM
Burn NoticeTV viewers often have "I wonder what would happen if ______ and ______ had a crossover episode?" fantasy. There have been many crossovers, of course. Everything from Jessica Fletcher appearing on 'Magnum, P.I.' to The Green Hornet and Kato appearing on 'Batman' and the recent crossovers we saw on all of the 'CSI' shows. Now 'White Collar' creator Jeff Eastin is talking about a crossover with another USA Network show.

In this conference call with TV critics, Eastin mentions that he'd love to do a crossover episode with 'Burn Notice.' He's friends with 'Burn Notice' creator Matt Nix and they've joked about it, but he might bring it up to USA for the second season (the season finale of 'White Collar' airs next Tuesday).

Review: '24' - '9:00PM-10:00PM'

24: Season 8, Episode 6

(S08E06) "If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, we don't do that anymore." - Hastings to Jack, on using unsavory methods with the Russians


Oh, snap. The Russians may have bought Renee's cover, but that doesn't mean she's out of danger. Just the opposite, especially given the fact that she's a loose cannon and doesn't seem to care whether she lives or dies at this point. Or maybe that's not necessarily true.

Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer 24
(S08E05) "I think this operation just blew up." - Jack

I think this season just blew up. After loving the first four hours in last week's two-night 24 premiere, hour five of Jack Bauer's eighth bad day crashed and burned pretty hard. While the main plot involving Jack and Renee is worth watching, it still has one big glaring misstep that I had a hard time getting over last night. As for the rest of the minor subplots? We can only hope they tie in to the rest of the story, because right now, very little of it is interesting.

Annie Wersching as Renee Walker
(S08E03/S08E04) "Renee, I know where you are and it's a dark place." - Jack

24's two-night four-hour season premiere continued tonight with the season's third and fourth hours and, by the end of it, we finally got a pretty clear picture of what the larger threat is and where it's headed... at least until next week.

Renee finally made an appearance, Hassan didn't get taken out, and Hastings figured out that Chloe actually knows what she's talking about. But was any of that enough to make up for the numerous shortcomings this season has already displayed?

Review: 24 - 4:00PM-5:00PM/5:00PM-6:00PM (season premiere)

Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, L) is briefed by CTU field agent Cole Ortiz (Freddie Prinze Jr., R) about the escalating threat.
(S08E01/S08E02) "You don't look like a Grampa..." - Jack's granddaughter, Teri

As if we needed another reminder that, yes, 24 has begun its eighth season and maybe, just maybe, Jack Bauer is getting too old for this crap. Good thing for us, this guy doesn't know how to say no.

Bauer's eighth very bad day kicked off tonight with a bang (literally) and with NYC as the show's newest (gimmicky?) setting, there's hope that season eight can reclaim some of 24's lost glory because, lest we forget, seasons six and seven started off wonderfully, too, only to falter as the clock kept ticking. Can Grampa Jack do the one thing that all old folks yearn to do and turn back time?

24 season eight -- An early look

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 14th 2010 10:00AM
Kiefer Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer in season eight of FOX's '24.'"WHERE CAN I BUY A METROCARD?!?!"

Though it's not something you'd expect to hear an angry Jack Bauer scream at an unsuspecting tourist, people familiar with New York City are going to be amazed that he doesn't need to.

Season eight of the real-time drama drops Bauer into the borough of Manhattan and when 24 returns in just a few days (it premieres this Sunday January 17 at 9 p.m. ET and Monday January 18 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX), it's almost comical how easy Bauer seems to get around the city. That's half the fun of it though -- eight seasons in and haven't the terrorists learned their lesson yet? Jack Bauer will always find you.

However, that doesn't mean Jack's alone in this. As many of the previews for the new season have pointed out, Bauer is a retired man, a grandfather to boot, and there's a whole new crop of CTUers ready to pick up the torch.

Details and spoilers on the new season after the jump.

Jon Gosselin ransacked his own apartment?

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 29th 2009 8:02AM
Jon & Kate Plus 8For those who were unaware, Jon Gosselin, of Jon & Kate Plus 8 fame (or rather, infamy), had his New York City apartment ransacked during the holiday weekend. Evidence points to his new ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman. Glassman is stating that Gosselin did it himself for publicity.

The first question is: why would Jon Gosselin need publicity? This isn't the Balloon Boy family. He's got a fleet of paparazzi following him and he gets plenty of publicity whether he wants it or not. I feel kind of bad for Gosselin since he's starting to have a string of high-profile sour relationships.

This whole situation smells of bitter ex-girlfriend. If Gosselin needed additional publicity, all he would need to do is have sex with one of the Kardashians or perhaps one of the female cast members of Jersey Shore and let the tape "accidentally" fall into the hands of the press.

Kim Raver won't be clocking any hours on 24 next season

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Aug 17th 2009 3:30PM

Kim RaverAt least that's what it sounds like 24 EP Evan Katz told EW's Ausiello. According to Katz, some of the things they have planned for the FOX drama's eighth season don't involve a Jack/Audrey reunion.

Can you blame them? 24 has had some doosie plots in the past that are pretty hard to swallow, but the last we saw of Audrey was at the very end of season six, and she didn't look so good. If she somehow ended up in the fold again next year (which takes place in New York City), I can't see people being too happy about it.

Dark Blue ad

The picture above isn't from a Los Angeles street, it's from a New York City street. TNT is creating some ambitious marketing for their new cop drama Dark Blue. They're turning part of NYC's subway into "underground L.A." Included in the ad campaign will be posters, signs on staircases, even entire subway cars wrapped in pics that show the L.A. skyline. The show starts on July 15.

What would Mad Men be like if it was set in Los Angeles?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 18th 2009 7:08PM
Mad MenI don't mean the filming of the show moving to Los Angeles. It is already filmed there. I'm talking about the setting of the show moving from New York City to Los Angeles.

Matthew Weiner hints at such a move, in that secretive way that he does because he hates giving away spoilers. But he does say in this new Rolling Stone interview that the 60s were all about Los Angeles overtaking New York as "the future," and we've already seen a few episodes set there (last season, when Don got involved with Anna). Weiner doesn't say they will move there, but he does say "I always want the audience to be worried that I'm going to pick up and move the show somewhere. Because, you know, I might."

So You Think You Can Dance: NYC and Denver Auditions

One excited auditioner on So You Think You Can Dance?
"Your metal rod is showing" – Sonya Tayeh


(S05E01) Screams and potential contestants wailing to the cameras start off our show. What did I get myself into? Cat Deeley preps us that we have thousands of dancers, six cities, lots of tears, and one obsessively screaming judge. I guess we don't get an explanation as to what happened to Joshua, other than making it to the opening credits. Whatever did happen to Step Up 3D? Let's hope it doesn't go straight to DVD.

We started the night with New York City's auditions, specifically in Brooklyn. Cat does the Brooklyn Dance while more people dance for the camera. Our judges today are Nigel, Mary, and Tabitha & Napoleon, our favorite lyrical hip-hop choreographers. The dancers still have the same process for auditions: win (straight to Vegas), lose (rejection) or draw (choreography round where the judges will make their decisions).
