While the doors of Sports Night shuttered after only two seasons, the show helped launch the television careers of several actors and became an early indicator of what Aaron Sorkin could do on TV. When the cast came back together for EW‘s reunion issue, they discussed some of the show’s most memorable moments.

Sons of Anarchy fans are still reeling from the Nov. 4 episode, which said goodbye to Bobby (Mark Boone Junior). But Billy Brown, the actor who plays August Marks, the Big Bad who pulled the trigger, may actually be able to cheer them up with a couple of great behind-the-scenes anecdotes. READ FULL STORY
ABC Family has renewed Chasing Life for a second season, ahead of the first season’s return from hiatus this December.

Pivot is no longer giving the cold shoulder to scripted dramas, as the network has unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming series, Fortitude.
Spoiler alert: The Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “What a Piece of Work Is Man,” said goodbye to a core character and watched another make a surprising move on the hood of a cop car. (Read our postmortems with Mark Boone Junior (Bobby) and Annabeth Gish (Jarry).) Peter Weller, who directed the episode—and, of course, recurs on the series as Charlie Barosky—spoke to EW about those memorable scenes, what makes Sons special, and how the Nov. 18 episode, which he also directed, nearly destroyed him.

Die Hard may always take all the action-movie attention around Christmas, but this year, Chuck Norris is stepping in to challenge John McClane’s holiday throne.
Spoiler alert: The Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy was a big one for Sheriff Althea Jarry (Annabeth Gish). She had a physical confrontation with Gemma (Katey Sagal), uncovered game-changing intel on Chris Dun, and asked Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) to prove he has feelings for her by “taking her” on the hood of her cop car in the parking garage in front of Quinn (Rusty Coones).
EW: I’m just going to jump right in with the scene I think fans will be talking about. Do you have a guess?
Gish: The sex on a cop car scene. [Laughs] READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert: In the Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) made another play to get Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) back from August Marks (Billy Brown).
Bobby’s fate—a bullet to the head from the gun Marks had hidden on him before the no-weapons-allowed exchange—will have surprised the fans who voted SAMCRO’s de facto conscience the club member most likely to survive in a pre-season EW.com poll. “I took that as a great compliment that people actually wanted me to survive,” Boone says. “I think that this show does surprising things more than most shows, and that is one of the reasons why people find it such good entertainment.”
The actor—who has already shot a movie called Caretaker with Connie Stevens since leaving Charming, plans to be in Sons costar David Labrava’s film Street Level, and hopes to get back into the recording studio as well (his cover of “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” feels even more poetic now)—spoke to EW about Bobby’s final ride.

There’s no denying it: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes is the object of affection for just about anyone who watches BBC’s Sherlock, whether its Molly’s unrequited love on the show itself or the legion of Tumblr fans who turn every wink, smirk, and step into a GIF-able moment.
But for all the love Holmes receives, he hasn’t exactly returned the favor. More bluntly, Holmes has never had sex on the show. Not with an actual proposed love interest, nor with Watson, to the dismay of all “Johnlock” fans. But while viewers shouldn’t expect a Sherlock sex scene anytime soon, Cumberbatch recently discussed what Sherlock would be like in bed—and readers may need a cigarette after some of his comments.
