New ABC special dares to rank all-time best 'Schoolhouse Rock' songs

Just in time for the school year, ABC will celebrate groovy and educational jams with The ABC’s of Schoolhouse Rock on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m.

The Chandra Wilson-hosted special will feature interviews with the creators and writers of the Emmy-winning series. More importantly, it will seek to settle the age-old debate: Which is the best Schoolhouse Rock song of all time? Look, we all know the list is going to include “I’m Just a Bill,”  “Conjunction Junction,” and maybe even “Interplanet Janet”—but I’m telling you, people, if “Sufferin’ till Suffrage” does not make the top five, there is no justice.

Niecy Nash joins 'The Mindy Project'

Is there such a thing as too many funny people on one show? Well, we’re about to find out when Niecy Nash brings her talents to The Mindy Project.

EW has confirmed that Nash will join the show’s third season in a recurring role as Dr. Jean Fishman, a rival of Mindy’s—or as Mindy Kaling tweeted, her “work nemesis“—and the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital. TVLine, which first reported the news, described Fishman as “a take-no-prisoners type” who “also happens to be a lesbian.” And considering we know that Mindy kisses a girl this season, could Nash’s introduction be related?

We’ll find out when The Mindy Project returns for its third season on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Spoiler Room: Scoop on 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'New Girl,' 'Once Upon a Time' and more

Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

Co-creators of 'Life on Mars' reunite for new BBC America show

PHARAOH-GRAHAM.jpg

Ashley Pharaoh and Matthew Graham, co-creators and writer of Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, and Eternal Law, are pairing up once again to write a new series, titled The Living and the Dead, for BBC America and BBC One.

The new series will be set in Somerset, England, in 1888, focusing on “a land and a community on the edge of monumental change, on the great hinge between ancient traditional ways and an industrial, scientific future,” according to a press release. Furthermore, the show is about “a land of ghosts and myths, poltergeists and demons—if there was ever a time for those ghosts to rise out of the ground, this would be that time. At the heart of this small community is Nathan Appleby, a reluctant gentleman farmer who is obsessed with proving the existence of the afterlife.”

The new original drama will follow Appleby as he investigates hauntings and all things paranormal/ghostly until one question could end his work: “Will Nathan’s interest in the occult begin to threaten his family, his livelihood and even his sanity?”

“We are as excited about this show as anything since Life On Mars and Ashes to Ashes—we want it to be moving, tender, sensual…and very, very scary,” Pharaoh and Graham said in a press release.

The Living and the Dead will shoot in the West Country of England next year. No casting announcements have been made as of yet.

Paul Reubens to play bad on 'The Blacklist'

The guest list for NBC’s The Blacklist continues to grow: Paul Reubens has been cast as Mr. Vargas, a dapper, finicky “muscle” who handles delicate situations in the criminal underworld, EW has learned exclusively. He’ll first appear in season two’s third episode, with the arc slated for at least two episodes. “We’re forgoing the bow tie and the bicycle, and it’s going to be something totally different, and it’s gonna be awesome,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp says. “It can’t get strange enough for me. One of the most fun things is being able to write for actors who I’ve admired and think are interesting and try to play against expectations. I think this will be a fun one. I’d say he’s gonna shake things up a bit when he enters Red’s orbit.”

“It started with the character,” he says. “We knew what he would feel like and sound like, and then as we started kicking around names, Paul’s name came up as, ‘Well, that would be cool. That will never happen, but we might as well ask.'”

Reubens started work on the show Friday. Other guest stars in season two include Mary-Louise Parker, Lee Tergesen, and Krysten Ritter. Peter Stormare will, of course, return as Berlin.

'Big Brother:' Zach talks Zankie and says 'I am completely 100% heterosexual'

Zach Rance wanted to be noticed this summer on Big Brother. That much was clear. Whether he was parading around in that goofy pink hat, starting a showmance with Frankie (even though he says he is straight), or calling other contestants a “fruit loop dingus,” Zach liked to be noticed. Maybe he should have played a little more under the radar because his fellow alliance members had finally had enough and evicted him from the Big Brother house last night. Then, with a chance to reenter the game in a jury competition, he fell short, ending his dream of emerging as the winner. We were unable to chat with Zach because he is back sequestered on the jury, but we were able to sneak a few questions to him via email and here’s what that lunatic had to say. READ FULL STORY

Girls lovers and hate watchers can unite in enjoyment of this sneak peek of season four of the HBO show. Showrunner and star Lena Dunham released an Instagram video in which Hannah Horvath (Dunham) rides her bicycle through an idyllic pasture, only to topple over in a heap. Could it be that Horvath is thriving in the great outdoors of Iowa? Fans won’t know until early 2015, but at least the props crew was diligent enough to put a bike helmet on Dunham for the shot.
