Goodbye, 'Colbert Report'! We'll meet again some sunny day

Colbert-Finale-Musical.jpg

To watch a truly satisfying finale is that rare thing, like getting to see Abraham Lincoln’s unicorn horn.

Our expectations as fans are often so high, it’s almost impossible to meet them. And it seemed like Stephen Colbert was winking at that idea in the final, go-big episode of The Colbert Report, which featured an all-star singalong to “We’ll Meet Again” that included (among many others) Henry Kissinger, an astronaut, Big Bird, Bill Clinton, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan (who was still chained up in Colbert’s basement after his own finale) before its host flew off in a sleigh with three beyond-your-wildest-dreams, not-quite-real guests: Santa, Unicorn Abraham Lincoln, and, er, Alex Trebek.

Jeff Probst reveals the secret 'Survivor' ending you didn't see...and it's the best thing ever

So, I love just about everything when it comes to Survivor. That much has been established over the past 29 seasons. But there is one thing I do not love—the fact that it has been years since the show gave us one of those epic vote delivery montages where Jeff Probst transports the votes from on-location overseas to back here in the United States. There was the time he jetskied the votes past the Statue of Liberty and onto a New York City Subway en route to the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. And there was the other time where he jumped out of an airplane with the voting urn and then hopped on a motorcycle to get the votes to CBS Studios in L.A. These epic montages were hilarious and amazing and perfect in every way. READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' rookie Leslie Jones talks her big (and bumpy) year

In October, veteran stand-up comedian Leslie Jones made headlines when she walked from the SNL writers’ room to the stage. (The show had never featured two black female cast members at the same time before.) We jumped on the phone with Jones to discuss the learning curve—and, by the way, the 47-year-old breakthrough knows it’s been steep. READ FULL STORY

'The Amazing Race' season 25: See Phil Keoghan's behind-the-scenes photos

There’s just one work day left before we find out out who the 25th winners of The Amazing Race will be. You can’t always count on the most deserving team to take the crown, or for taxi drama and karma to line up exactly the way you want them to. But there is one winner you can count on to pull through on every single season of the rrrrace around the world: the show’s faithful host, Phil Keoghan.

Phil has been there for it all, and though his distressed leather jackets have changed from year to year, his enthusiasm for the game remains steadfast in the face of TAR‘s Silver Jubilee season. The Pit Stop master took it upon himself to snap a few behind-the-scenes shots in the last two legs of this season’s race, giving fans a taste of the ex-Phil-arating life (yeah, I said it) of an Amazing Race host.

Check out the photos below, and tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET to watch the Dentists, Surfers, Wrestlers, and Scientists—the first Final 4 in TAR history!—battle it out for the Season 25 title. READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs' creators talk that season 5 finale ending

Spoiler alert: The Covert Affairs season 5 finale, “Gold Soundz,” brought about big changes for Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Chris Gorham). After almost being killed, again, the latter decided he wants to leave the agency and travel the world with Natasha (Liane Balaban). If/when the show gets an order for a sixth season, would Auggie be in it? “Oh, he’ll be in it,” co-creator Matt Corman assures us. “It’s a slightly different dynamic for him at the outset. I think for now he’s trying this, trying something different. It’s interesting, he’s been so defined by his job. He has the CIA so dialed that for him, maybe more than any of our other characters, stepping out of that workplace is gonna be a real shift.”

With Arthur (Peter Gallagher) considering a run for Senate, Joan (Kari Matchett) heading up a new task force, and Annie debating whom to work for, whether to accept that mid-action sequence proposal from McQuaid (Nic Bishop), and what to do about her heart, season 6 could look a lot different. “It’s like any family, right, people go off in different directions, but they’re all still a family. There will always be things that unify them,” co-creator Chris Ord says. “And,” adds Corman, “pull them back together.” READ FULL STORY

Louis' next move revealed in 'Suits' promo -- exclusive

Suits fans have been waiting months to see what will happen now that Louis (Rick Hoffman) has figured out that Mike (Patrick J. Adams) doesn’t have a law degree—and that those closest to him at the firm have been hiding that fact. In August’s midseason finale, Louis used the knowledge as leverage to make a demand: “Pearson Specter Litt.” Will Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey (Gabriel Macht) make him a name partner? And what might that mean for Mike? Get a sneak peek at the new promo below.

Suits resumes its fourth season Jan. 28 at 10 p.m. ET on USA. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2014: How the May vs. May fight on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' came together

One of the most talked about (and gif’d about) moments of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. occurred early this season, when Ming-Na Wen’s Agent May ended up in a fight with her own doppelganger (a.k.a. a brainwashed Hydra agent). The scene was a beautifully choreographed dance of stunt work that, like most sequences on the show, looked effortless—but in reality, took a village to pull off. “There was one solid 16 hour day, but there were also two half day and quarter days,” explained stunt performer Samantha Jo of the resulting two minute sequence. “So it really spanned over 3 full days.”

As former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury taught us, nobody does it alone. EW spoke with members of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s creative team (Jo, fight choreographer Matt Mullins, and stunt coordinator Tanner Gill) as well as the real Agent May to get the scoop on everything that went into pulling this scene together.
