Scary clown alert: See 3 new 'American Horror Story' teasers

Well, we all knew it was coming. American Horror Story: Freak Show co-creator Ryan Murphy had warned EW back in May that the next iteration of his horror anthology would include “the most terrifying clown ever!” Now, FX has released three new teasers for the series and there’s at least one scary clown—maybe even two. Best to watch these with the lights on.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Oct. 8 on FX and features Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, and Denis O’Hare.

'Mindy Project' teaser promises awkward romance for Danny and Mindy

The Mindy Project‘s second season ended in grand romantic-comedy style, as Mindy and Danny kissed—at the top of the Empire State Building, no less. While fans have had to wait several months to see the pair as an actual couple after the two professed their love for each other, Fox has released the first teaser of the third season, and it’s replete with all the awkward romance viewers should expect from the titular doctor.

In the sneak peek, Mindy and Danny are about to have sex for the first time, but, unsurprisingly, the night gets off to a less than ideal start as Danny can’t seem to stop talking, much to Mindy’s frustration.

The Mindy Project‘s third season debuts on Tuesday, Sept. 16, and with it comes a string of big guest stars including Scandal creator Shonda RhimesFargo‘s Allison Tolman, and Cheers’ Rhea Pearlman as Danny’s mother.

Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace round out panel on 'The View'

It looks like there will be two Rosies sitting on the panel on The View this season.

Actress Rosie Perez and political analyst Nicolle Wallace will be rounding out the panel of hosts on The View, joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell. A performer on stage and screen, Perez is best known for her roles in Do The Right Thing, The Counselor, and Fearless, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.

“I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join The View,” Perez said in a statement. “Knowing that I’ll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable.  The opportunity to connect with our nation’s audience on a daily basis… icing on the cake! Very happy.”

Wallace is an author and political analyst for MSNBC, and she worked as communications chief for George W. Bush’s administration and was the senior advisor for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008.

“I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades,” Wallace said in a statement. “I have watched The View for many years and now to be seated alongside three women that I have admired is both humbling and incredibly exciting.”

Along with the two new hosts comes a new executive producer, Bill Wolff, who will replace long-running exec Bill Geddie. Wolff recently served as vice president of programming at MSNBC and was executive producer of The Rachel Maddow Show. These changes come as The View reinvents itself for the new season with a new logo, studio design, and color scheme.

The View returns with a live premiere on Monday, Sept. 15 at 11 pm ET on ABC.

FXX sees ratings boom thanks to 'The Simpsons' marathon

Having taken the crown as the longest TV marathon ever, The Simpsons can add another achievement to its trophy case—launching FXX as a viable network.

While many at FX expected the “Every Simpsons Ever” marathon to draw viewers, the results proved to be beyond anyone’s expectations. Bill Carter at The New York Times has a breakdown of the 12-day marathon’s viewership, and the results would even make Comic Book Guy crack a smile.

Simpsons episodes screened in prime time averaged 1.32 million viewers over the course of the marathon, a huge jump from the network’s previous average of 206,000 viewers at the same time. These numbers not only catapulted FXX to third place among all cable networks in the 18-to-49 demo during the marathon, but it also made it the highest rated network in all of cable television for three out of the 12 nights.

Somewhere, Mr. Burns is whispering “Excellent” to himself as he looks over the marathon’s results.

The marathon also proved to be a hit with fans. The Every Simpsons Ever Twitter profile tweeted along with each episode, retweeting viewer photos and tweets from Simpsons writers, artists, and others involved with the show’s production.

Only a year old, FXX was, prior to the marathon, a struggling network that took over what had previously been Fox Soccer. The Simpsons marathon gave the channel a needed jolt in the ratings and paved the way for FXX’s nightly programming in the months to come.

Visit the Times for a full analysis of the ratings, along with input from FX executives and James L. Brooks, who helped develop the show with Matt Groening and described viewer affection for the marathon as “emotional in ways that we didn’t anticipate.”

Patton Oswalt to guest on CBS' 'Battle Creek'

Battle Creek, CBS’ upcoming buddy cop drama co-created by Breaking Bad‘s Vince Gilligan and House‘s David Shore may not have a premiere date, but it does have a noteworthy guest star.

Patton Oswalt joins stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as the unorthodox mayor of Battle Creek, Mich., in the freshman season’s sixth episode, “Cereal Killer,” EW has learned exclusively. The character’s full name? Mayor Scooter Hardy. There really was no other casting choice.

Duhamel stars as Milton Chamberlain, a handsome, charismatic FBI agent with unlimited resources, who opens a field office at the underfunded police station in Battle Creek and chooses a gruff local detective, Russ Agnew (Winters), to be his partner. Janet McTeer, Kal Penn, Edward Fordham, Jr. and Aubrey Dollar also star.

Oswalt, who’s become a go-to guest star, is also set to reprise his role as Fire Marshall Boone on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine this fall. Other recent turns include appearances on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Modern Family, Drunk History, Justified, and  Parks and Recreation.

'Covert Affairs' bosses promise a death in midseason finale

Last week’s episode of USA’s Covert Affairs saw Annie (Piper Perabo) coming to believe that McQuaid (Nic Bishop) orchestrated the Chicago bombing, then having second thoughts when she had the chance to bring him in. “She trusts her gut instinct, and her gut instinct is telling her to trust McQuaid,” co-creator Chris Ord says. “We’ll see where that leads her.”

“If she does go ahead and trust McQuaid,” co-creator Matt Corman adds, “it’s gonna complicate things between she and Auggie even further. Throughout the season, the issue of trust between Annie and Auggie has been showcased, and it’s something the two characters are still working through.”

As the promo for the Aug. 26 midseason finale hints, not everyone will make it to the second half of season five. “Fans of this show have come to expect twists and turns, and this episode delivers. Without getting too specific, yes, a character that the audience has come to know will die,” Corman confirms. READ FULL STORY
