I was all set to talk about how scary Stefan is in this new promo for season 3 of 'The Vampire Diaries' -- he is very, very scary -- then something else caught my eye.
As EW pointed out, the trailer features a split-second shot of a lingere-clad Caroline straddling a shirtless Tyler. Racy! Even racier than the first peek at season 3 we got from Comic-Con, and Damon was naked in that one.
So, essentially, season 3 of 'TVD' is going to feature more sex, more nudity and more vampire violence. Why is Sept. 15 still a month away?!
Pedowitz was on hand to assuage the fears of 'Supernatural' fans, revealing that, despite internet rumblings and rumors, the network has "no plans" for Season 7 to be the last year of the spooky drama series, revealing that he and the rest of the network's brass hope the series "keeps on going" and that they'll be examining the show's future on a season-by-season basis, depending on how the ratings hold up.
I can really only focus on one thing: Naked. Damon.
Yep, following the pretty exciting rehash of the main plot points of the series, we're treated to a soapy, nude Ian Somerhalder -- well, he's about as nude as he can be on The CW.
So, you know, watch the following trailer (via TV Guide) for a neato recap teasing 'TVD' season 3, stay for the shirtlessness.
Simple waitress one day, object of affection for multiple supernatural beings the next -- it's a hard life she leads.
Alas, we can't all have multiple sexy vampires fawning over us. Instead we'll all have to make due with watching the new season of 'True Blood' when it premieres on HBO at 9PM Sunday night. In the meantime, and in honor of the Bill-Sookie-Eric love triangle, I've compiled a list of the sexiest vampires to ever grace TV screens.
Check out who made the cut after the jump, then weigh in on your favorite sexy vampires.
The network announced the premiere dates for its fall shows today. While The CW traditionally debuts its shows earlier than the other networks, this year it's scattering the return of its original programming throughout the month of September.
Returning series include 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Gossip Girl,' '90210,' 'Nikita' and 'Supernatural,' while the channel's three new scripted series are 'Ringer,' 'The Secret Circle' and 'Hart of Dixie.' The network's reality night will see 'America's Next Top Model' paired with the new 'H8R.'
So, when will your favorite vampires and your soon-to-be favorite witches come back? Check out the schedule after the jump.
Though Graham informed us that they couldn't reveal much about season three's mysteries, since the writers were returning to work the very same day, she did confirm the tentative airdate for the season three premiere: Thurs., September 8. Better start stocking up on vervain, 'TVD' fans.
Spoilers were off-limits, but the three stars were willing to offer some speculation on the direction of their characters next year, including Jeremy's newfound abilities and Caroline's tumultuous love life.
They did, however, have a few suggestions for when Kevin Williamson, Julie Plec and the rest of the writers finally sit down to brainstorm the season.
"I'd like to see Elena stand on her own two feet and fly solo for a second," Nina Dobrev suggested.
Ian Somerhalder's hopes for Damon were a little less lofty. "I just hope that Damon and Stefan and Klaus can go on a bender or two," he said.
Paul Wesley was into the partying idea: "Get hammered, go to Tijuana, strip clubs, tequila."
I've started enough of these 'Vampire Diaries' recaps recalling the exact expletives I uttered during particularly exciting episodes. But if you'll allow it, I have to do it one more time -- OH MY GOD.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from 'As I Lay Dying.' (Rookie mistake, I know.) It just seemed that all the events of this season led up to last week's episode, which truly did have a finale-esque feel (the sacrifice, the deaths, the bite, the Klaus not actually dying, the more deaths). Even while I was watching last night, I wasn't sure how they'd manage to go out with a bang.
But oh, me of little faith. I must've forgotten what show I was watching, because the final ten minutes -- capped with the epic last scene -- left me shaking in silence on my couch more than an hour after it ended. (Not kidding. I've never had such a visceral reaction to a TV show before.)
Well, we can't say we weren't warned.
'The Vampire Diaries' executive producer Julie Plec told reporters last week that "there will be some severe and tragic consequences [as a result of the sacrifice], and loss of life would be extreme over the last several episodes."
Last night's sacrifice-a-palooza certainly followed through on that promise. And while I expected plenty of gasps and "oh my god"s, I did not expect the uncontrollable sobbing. (Although I probably should by now, it basically happens every other day in Mystic Falls.)
Woah. Woah, woah, woah.
I was all set to talk about what a perfectly nice filler episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' was, then AH MAH GAH. The end? The end! Only on 'TVD' are the filler episodes just as exciting as ever.
Last night's episode, which chronicled the final day in Mystic Falls before the sacrifice as Klaus and his right-hand witch gathered the necessary components (including luring Tyler back to town), introduced the possibility of the game changer of all game changers: Could Elena become a vampire?
I'll defer to the wise words ancient vampire Elijah gave Elena on last night's 'Vampire Diaries' after he told her that he and Klaus are brothers: "I'm a little behind on the times, but I believe the term you're searching for is OMG."
And I'll defer to poor Elena when she told him moments before, "I heard that, I'm still processing."
...you mean I have to string words together and form sentences to discuss this episode? All I really want to do is type Klaaaaaaaaus over and over again. I'll try my best, though, after the jump.
In another world, Matt Davis would've made a fantastic villain.
Alas, though we weren't sure of Alaric's true nature when he first arrived in Mystic Falls last season, Ric turned out to be a pretty good guy (neglecting to tell his girlfriend about his not-so-dead wife being her niece's birth mother notwithstanding).
Thankfully, Davis was able to flex his bad-guy muscles on last night's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' as the first living embodiment we've seen of the ultimate bad guy: Klaus, the first vampire. It was nice easing into Klaus' wickedness via a friendly face, though he truly is evil -- he made Katherine stab herself in the leg repeatedly just for funsies. Don't worry about her, though, because he doesn't plan on killing her anytime soon -- "I've searched for you for over 500 years. Your death is going to last at least half that long."
With a title like 'The House Guest,' we knew at least one person on Thursday's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' would arrive unannounced to cause some major trouble for our Mystic Falls residents. Well, let's be honest -- someone causes trouble every week. Mystic Falls would actually be a terrible place to live, despite the adorable waiters at the local watering hole and near-constant stream of town-wide parties. People die at an alarming rate for a sleepy Virginia town.
But that's all beside the point, because OH MY GOD. Just ... wow. What started out as the most lighthearted, high school-centric episode of the season turned into yet another heartbreaking, gasp-inducing, masterfully written installment. And how about that Nina Dobrev? Girlfriend can ACT, am I right?
If you're a fan of the show, you should probably do as the man says and tune in this evening.
Following a second dramatic ratings dip for his cult hit show that Fox doomed to the Friday death slot, the star has started to campaign for fans to watch the show on Fridays, as opposed to later in the weekend on their DVRs.
"I'm a positive person in general, but we really need our 'Fringe' fans to tune in and watch us on Fridays," Jackson told Entertainment Weekly. "We did good when we first moved, but last week we did not have a good week, ratings wise. It is going to take the people that like the show to watch the show and start the campaign and show their support if they want to see us stick around for another season."

Overheard while watching last night's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries': What? Ah! WHAT?! EEEEE! NO WAYYYY. WHAT? Is that-- wait, is he-- what? Holy crap! Ahhhhhh!
Now imagine that with three times as many inappropriate expletives and you'd have a realistic transcript of my verbal interjections during what was hands down the best episode of the season.
To make a long story short: Stefan had sexy long hair and was evil and killed lots of ladies, Lexie came back (!!!) and made him good again, Alaric killed Elijah (yes I said ALARIC), ELIJAH CAME BACK TO LIFE, Elena STABBED HERSELF, Elena KILLED ELIJAH (yes I said ELENA), Katherine came back. But the long story's much more fun ...
