Andrew J. West sure does have an appetite. First we saw him eating humans on The Walking Dead as leader of the cannibals at Terminus, and now the man who played Gareth is following that up with a scene in — where else? — a restaurant. READ FULL STORY
The Meredith Vieira Show will return for a second season, according to Deadline.
The program, hosted by Vieira, has been renewed by NBC Owned Television Stations, making it the first freshman syndicated talk show to land a second season.
The show premiered September 8 of this year, and hit a series ratings high last week in the target demographic of women 25-54 with 0.7.
Whether you loved or hated it, Arrested Development‘s fourth season was a departure for the show, telling its story out of sequence as each episode focused on a single character’s perspective. Sometimes it worked (i.e., Maeby’s episode) and sometimes it didn’t (some of George Sr. or Lindsay’s episodes), but it appears fans will now have a chance to watch the show in a brand-new way.
Launching a scripted show is tougher than it looks: WEtv has canceled its first drama series, The Divide, after one season. The legal drama ran for eight episodes and starred Marin Ireland and Damon Gupton.
The network said in a statement: “We are extremely proud of The Divide and grateful to its brilliant creators, Richard LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn, and an amazing cast and crew, for bringing this story to life as WEtv’s first scripted series.”
More and more cable networks are getting into scripted programming. Bravo, E!, WGN, Pivot, and even Animal Planet have all either recently launched, or are readying to launch, their first scripted shows.
When we last saw Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) in Elementary‘s season 2 finale, they were heading their separate ways: Holmes to London to work for MI6, Watson toward a new life in New York without the partner she described as having a pull “like gravity” on her.
Creator/executive producer Rob Doherty promises a reunion on tonight’s season premiere, which takes place eight months after Holmes’ departure. Fans of the prickly detective won’t be shocked to learn that “things did not exactly work out with MI6. Holmes [feels] a certain compulsion to come back to New York. The biggest surprise he has in store is that he has found himself a new protégé and partner.”
But Holmes isn’t the only half of the crime-solving duo with a surprise up his sleeve—Watson has continued sleuthing by day and started spending nights with a new man. Liu and Doherty gave EW a preview of three new faces to watch this season, as well as an update on how Holmes and Watson will move forward. READ FULL STORY

Making arrangements for your own funeral can be a macabre experience, but for two darker characters on Portlandia, it’s more exciting than their birthdays.
It was bad enough that Missy, John, and Keith ate all the rice at their previous tribe. But then they came over to Coyopa and started also helping themselves to that supply, well, Dale Wentworth was none too happy about that, so what did they do? They voted both him and his daughter out of the game!
Dale called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss where it all went wrong, whether he thought his fake idol play would work, and how he feels about daughter Kelley last week saying she wishes she hadn’t played alongside him. Not only that, but Dale has some strong feelings about Jeff Probst bailing out Hunahpu last night with a trade for more rice. Find out why he thinks even his former Coyopa tribemates should have had to deal with the consequences of the over-consumption. You can now listen to the whole thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast by clicking on the audio player below. (The ‘Survivor’ interview with Dale begins 19 minutes in.) READ FULL STORY
