'Project Runway All Stars' host Alyssa Milano talks season 4

Alyssa Milano admits she was nervous when hosting Project Runway All Stars for the first time last season—but all that’s behind her now. In season 4, which premieres Thursday, Oct. 30, she settles comfortably into her hosting and judging role—she even “gets into it” with fellow judge Isaac Mizrahi over a critique—even though she was eight months pregnant while filming the show. Here, Milano tells EW what it was like to tape the series (in heels no less), who her favorite guest judge was, and what to expect from this season… the best to date, according to Milano.

'Scandal' star Bellamy Young on the end of Smelly Mellie (and what's coming next)

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on that controversial rice trade

Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This is kind of a new one for you guys in terms of a tribe recklessly devouring all of their food supply. Tell us about how you came up with the decision to take all the comfort items back from Hunahpu for more rice. Are there any other options you and the producers discussed before settling on that?
JEFF PROBST: Having a tribe eat through or lose their entire staple of rice is one of the greatest gifts the reality gods can bestow upon a show like Survivor because it creates story. Big story. Once I heard they were low on rice and we were still very early in the game there really wasn’t any other consideration than to take every single thing at camp — other than the most bare essentials. In this case, it was easily justified because there were no mitigating circumstances — they simply ate it all. There has to be a big check for that kind of indulgence. But the big idea I am still circling is this: If you make the assumption that you can always trade for more rice (even if it’s your entire shelter) is eating all your rice so you can stay strong for challenges actually a decent strategy? I would not be surprised to see another tribe take the risk and employ this strategy in future seasons. So in my subconscious I am already thinking of how we might handle this same situation if a tribe didn’t have enough supplies to make a fair trade. Say for instance a tribe that had won no rewards, had only the barest of shelter, but like Hunahpu, also ate all their rice. What is the appropriate invoice at that point?  READ FULL STORY

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.] READ FULL STORY

'Richie Rich' comedy series coming to Netflix

Jake-brennan

A classic 1 percent cartoon character is coming to Netflix. The streaming media company has ordered a live-action version of Richie Rich. Only in this adaptation, the world’s richest kid earned his money through his own endeavors.

In the Richie Rich comics dating back to 1953, Rich was the son of a wealthy industrialist. In the Netflix version, he invents and sells a “cool new green technology” that nets him a trillion dollars. “Richie moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever,” reads the press release.

Netflix has ordered 21 episodes of Richie Rich, envisioned as a half-hour comedy and starring Jake Brennan (Dark Skies), along with Joshua Carlon, Jenna Ortega, Lauren Taylor, Kiff VandenHeuvel  and Brooke Wexler. Brian Robbins (Awesomeness TV), Tim Pollock and Jeff Hodsden (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) are executive producers.

In addition to the comics, Richie Rich inspired two animated series and a 1994 movie starring Macaulay Culkin

Your first look at Eva Longoria's guest arc on 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

Jake may still be haunted by his feelings for Amy, but it looks like he’s about to scare up a romantic adventure with a new woman. (Sorry. Halloween. It’s in two days.)

Nine days after Halloween, on the Nov. 9 episode of Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Eva Longoria will kick off a three-episode arc, playing a defense attorney named Sophia who draws the interest of Jake (Andy Samberg). The hitch? She’s representing a client that Jake would like to put behind bars. “Jake meets his match with Sophia—she’s a whip-smart lawyer who some people might possibly consider to be attractive,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Dan Goor quips to EW. “There is sexual tension between the two characters, but there is also the reality that cops and defense attorneys hate each other. The question is: Will Jake sleep with the enemy?”

Ponder that while you check out Exhibit A: exclusive photos, as seen above and below, from Longoria’s first two episodes. READ FULL STORY

Syfy will never stop airing 'Ghost Hunters'

GhostHunters

Syfy has renewed Ghost Hunters for a tenth season. The cable channel’s longest-running non-wrestling series just received a pickup for another 13 episodes to air next year, along with a renewal for a fourth round of Paranormal Witness.

“We couldn’t be more excited about entering a brand new decade of paranormal investigations with Jason Hawes, a refreshed TAPS team and Ghost Hunters,” said Heather Olander, SVP, alternative series development and production for Syfy. “We also eagerly anticipate the return of a revitalized and scarier than ever Paranormal Witness: True Terror, which features shocking firsthand accounts of truly frightening and skin-crawling supernatural experiences—including the real-life story of the hit movie, The Conjuring.”

The show has been rather phenomenal at generating reliable ratings for the network, though admittedly far less phenomenal at proving the existence of ghosts. The reality franchise has also generated three spin-offs over the years and plenty of imitators. Though no longer as strong as its peak years when it was averaging 3 million viewers, the current ninth season of Ghost Hunters is still pulling 1.7 million total viewers, 841,000 viewers in adults 18-49. For more on Syfy, read EW‘s deep-dive Q&A with the network’s head of programming about their rather promising new drama series in the works.
