The Flash is about to make his mark.

The CW debuted a new poster for the debut of The Flash, which stars Grant Gustin as scientist-turned-superhero Barry Allen, who is granted the power of super-speed after a freak accident. However, the Central City resident appears to be zipping through Arrow‘s Starling City in the poster, as evidenced by the Queen Consolidated building in the background and Big Belly Burger on the right—which are just a few of the Easter eggs. Can you spot them all?

Anarchy reigns in new trailer for E!'s 'The Royals'

E!’s first ever scripted drama series, The Royals, follows Elizabeth Hurley’s Queen Helena as she does her very best to protect her royal family’s image. But as can be seen in the series’ first official trailer, this is one monarchy that can’t quite stay out of the tabloids.

With a daughter who’s making bad wardrobe choices and a son who’s making bad life choices, Queen Helena has her hands full in the new series from One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn. Somehow, Joan Collins will also fit into the mix.

'AHS: Freak Show' star Sarah Paulson: Are two heads better than one?

Sarah Paulson will be pulling double duty on American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The upcoming season takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, where the arrival of a troupe of circus performers coincides with the emergence of a dark entity that threatens the lives of freaks and normal residents alike. Paulson will play Bette and Dot, Siamese twins who are likely among the show’s big attractions.

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, without a doubt, both physically and emotionally, because the way we’re doing it, I go back and forth between both girls without any break,” Paulson tells EW. “I’m not able to just play one thing out. I have to switch constantly. It makes me feel like patting your head and rubbing your stomach and you’re not sure what you’re doing anymore.” READ FULL STORY

Did Arie Luyendyk, Jr. just reveal the new Bachelor?

Sorry, future Bachelor contestants: Arie Luyendyk, Jr. will not be next season’s star.

The season eight Bachelorette contestant was rumored to be the title Bachelor next season, but Luyendyk refuted those rumors Monday when he tweeted, “I’m not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people.” The farm reference makes a strong case that Chris Soules, who failed to receive Andi Dorfman’s final rose last season of The Bachelorette and was known for his occupation as a farmer, will be the next Bachelor.

'Pretty Little Liars' boss teases Ali's 'bold move' and a fatal finale

Last year, the Pretty Little Liars summer finale shocked fans when the camera panned around to reveal that Ezra was the man in the black hoodie and potentially the leader of the “A” team. As we now know, that was all a cover-up—Ezra was merely an author trying to solve a mystery and write a best-selling book—but in the moment, the idea that the beloved Mr. Fitz could be evil was heartbreaking. So heading into tonight’s summer finale, which is being labeled the “fatal finale,” fans are on edge for whatever twist showrunner Marlene King has in store. And she promises it’s a good one.

“[The finale is] a different kind of shocking,” King said. “Literally two days ago, we had our final playback for it, so we could hear all the sound and everything, and there were a few people who work on the show who do music and sound and they hadn’t read the script, and I will say that there were a lot of gasps and some tears were shed. People had to take a moment after they watched it to gain their composure.” READ FULL STORY

Aaron Paul on a huge Emmy night for 'Breaking Bad': 'We were so stunned'

Breaking Bad drove out of the Emmys and into the night with plenty of trophies in tow: The critically adored drug drama won five awards for the second half of its fifth and final season, including acting statues for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Anna Gunn, as well as the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy for the second year in a row. “It’s an embarrassment of riches, being involved in something as special as Breaking Bad,” says Paul, who claimed his third Supporting Actor trophy for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman, Walter White’s soul-gutted meth-making partner-turned-adversary. “This is probably one of the longest goodbyes in television history—and it’s a damn good one.” READ FULL STORY

Emmys: Jeff Jensen and Melissa Maerz on a show that made TV seem small

JEFF JENSEN: Melissa, for all the self-serving yet correct talk about how expansive and diverse and ambitious television has become over the past few years, the Emmys made TV seem rather small last night.

Maybe I lost my sense of humor over the summer (too much Rectify and Ferguson, I guess), but Seth Meyers didn’t work for me. The Late Night comedian—at his best when seated behind a desk, gleefully reading his sharp, tart jokes and engaging guests with smart chat—kept the show flowing and didn’t fumble. He was an effective game manager, but nothing more. And he simply lacks the presence and dynamism that an event like this requires.

Meyers invoked his former Saturday Night Live pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and their ace work hosting the Golden Globes, but inviting the comparison only hurt him. (Could they host the Emmys next year? Check that: Can they host everything, like, from now on?) His funniest bit was the “Billy On The Street” video he did with Billy Eichner—and there, Eichner was dragging him along like luggage. (Emmy and NBC would have been better served by Jimmy Fallon, whose strengths—playful and inventive interaction with celebs; genuinely sincere gushing—seem ideally suited to emceeing a kudosfest.)

VMA ratings drop: Bring back the twerking bears

nicki-minaj

Nicki couldn’t deliver Miley numbers: MTV’s Video Music Awards dropped sharply in the ratings Sunday night.

According to Nielsen, the annual awards telecast had 8.3 million viewers—that’s down about 18 percent from last year. Across all simulcasts on MTV, MTV2, VH1, and Logo TV, and including all repeats, viewers totaled 13.7 million. The show racked up 12.6 million tweets—so, yes, more tweets than viewers.

The telecast was, by VMA standards, surprisingly shock free. Even Nicki Minaj’s much-buzzed performance of “Anaconda” was relatively tame, especially compared to last year’s infamous Miley Cyrus twerk-n-tongue fest. (Cyrus tearfully giving a platform for homeless youth issues just isn’t the same.) After the show, even the perpetually offended Parents Television Council grudgingly admitted “MTV seems to have toned down” the telecast. No worries, MTV, there’s always next year—shake it off.

Early Emmy ratings down, yet second-best in years

emmy-awards-01

It was the first Monday night Emmys in 38 years. Will it be another 38 years before a network does it again?

In the early numbers, the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were down about 10 percent from last year. Though more accurate live-adjusted ratings are still to come (which could boost matters slightly), the show’s performance is expected to remain below last year’s Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show.

'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

Klaus enlists an ally in new 'Originals' season 2 teaser

THE-ORIGINALS.jpg

So long as The Originals are in New Orleans, there will be war. And considering that there are now more members of the Original family in town than ever before, that war is only going to get bigger when The Originals returns to The CW.

In a new teaser for the second season, Elijah comes face-to-face with his father, Klaus continues plotting against just about everyone, Cami mentions those nifty “weapons” she recently came into possession of, and Klaus finds a weapon of his own. Or rather, Klaus finds a potential ally in Marcel. After all, you can’t kill both your parents without a little bit of help, right?
