Someone got voted out on tonight’s Survivor, but most of the debate and discussion will center around the trade Jeff Probst offered to the Hunahpu tribe for more rice (since they had gorged themselves on their entire supply already). My full recap will be up later [UPDATE: Dalton's recap is now live], but read on to find out or sound off on what happened. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.] READ FULL STORY
The American Horror Story installments of Asylum and Freak Show just became even more connected: EW has exclusively learned that Lily Rabe will be appearing on Freak Show and reprising her Asylum role as nun Sister Mary Eunice. The actress, who has appeared in every season of AHS and is currently starring in the ABC midseason series The Whispers, will shoot her spot this weekend.
The reason for Sister Mary’s return involves Pepper (Naomi Grossman) and how she ended up going from the freak show to Asylum‘s titular institution, Briarcliff. Rabe’s appearance will be on AHS‘ 10th episode, which is their big winter cliffhanger.
EW has also confirmed reports that Neil Patrick Harris and his husband, David Burtka, will indeed appear on Freak Show this season but in separate episodes.
Fox is also dipping its toes in Neverland’s waters. The network is developing League of Pan, a series that’s set to follow the Lost Boys 15 years after they left Neverland. READ FULL STORY

A classic 1 percent cartoon character is coming to Netflix. The streaming media company has ordered a live-action version of Richie Rich. Only in this adaptation, the world’s richest kid earned his money through his own endeavors.
In the Richie Rich comics dating back to 1953, Rich was the son of a wealthy industrialist. In the Netflix version, he invents and sells a “cool new green technology” that nets him a trillion dollars. “Richie moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever,” reads the press release.
Netflix has ordered 21 episodes of Richie Rich, envisioned as a half-hour comedy and starring Jake Brennan (Dark Skies), along with Joshua Carlon, Jenna Ortega, Lauren Taylor, Kiff VandenHeuvel and Brooke Wexler. Brian Robbins (Awesomeness TV), Tim Pollock and Jeff Hodsden (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) are executive producers.
In addition to the comics, Richie Rich inspired two animated series and a 1994 movie starring Macaulay Culkin
As if being the King of France isn’t hard enough, Francis has had to do it all the while being haunted by the spirit of his dead father. And as fans of Reign know, Francis was the one responsible for his father’s death, and therefore has been living with a great deal of guilt.
But in an exclusive sneak peek from this week’s episode, Francis can no longer keep his secret. In a confrontation with the woman Henry is possessing, Francis admits to killing his father … only he might have said it a little too loudly.
Jake may still be haunted by his feelings for Amy, but it looks like he’s about to scare up a romantic adventure with a new woman. (Sorry. Halloween. It’s in two days.)
Nine days after Halloween, on the Nov. 9 episode of Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Eva Longoria will kick off a three-episode arc, playing a defense attorney named Sophia who draws the interest of Jake (Andy Samberg). The hitch? She’s representing a client that Jake would like to put behind bars. “Jake meets his match with Sophia—she’s a whip-smart lawyer who some people might possibly consider to be attractive,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Dan Goor quips to EW. “There is sexual tension between the two characters, but there is also the reality that cops and defense attorneys hate each other. The question is: Will Jake sleep with the enemy?”
Ponder that while you check out Exhibit A: exclusive photos, as seen above and below, from Longoria’s first two episodes. READ FULL STORY
Syfy has renewed Ghost Hunters for a tenth season. The cable channel’s longest-running non-wrestling series just received a pickup for another 13 episodes to air next year, along with a renewal for a fourth round of Paranormal Witness.
“We couldn’t be more excited about entering a brand new decade of paranormal investigations with Jason Hawes, a refreshed TAPS team and Ghost Hunters,” said Heather Olander, SVP, alternative series development and production for Syfy. “We also eagerly anticipate the return of a revitalized and scarier than ever Paranormal Witness: True Terror, which features shocking firsthand accounts of truly frightening and skin-crawling supernatural experiences—including the real-life story of the hit movie, The Conjuring.”
The show has been rather phenomenal at generating reliable ratings for the network, though admittedly far less phenomenal at proving the existence of ghosts. The reality franchise has also generated three spin-offs over the years and plenty of imitators. Though no longer as strong as its peak years when it was averaging 3 million viewers, the current ninth season of Ghost Hunters is still pulling 1.7 million total viewers, 841,000 viewers in adults 18-49. For more on Syfy, read EW‘s deep-dive Q&A with the network’s head of programming about their rather promising new drama series in the works.
