HBO’s Game of Thrones cast is sticking around for awhile. The network has signed the bulk of the current main cast through a presumed seventh season.
The premium network has locked down the acclaimed fantasy hit’s cast for another two years, sources say. But according to THR, which first broke the story, the seventh (and presumed final) season came at a high cost. In exchange for agreeing to a seventh season option, the cast received “huge raises” for the currently shooting fifth season, along with the sixth and seventh. The raises “will make the cast members among the highest paid on cable TV.” HBO had no comment on the report. READ FULL STORY
Alyssa Milano admits she was nervous when hosting Project Runway All Stars for the first time last season—but all that’s behind her now. In season 4, which premieres Thursday, Oct. 30, she settles comfortably into her hosting and judging role—she even “gets into it” with fellow judge Isaac Mizrahi over a critique—even though she was eight months pregnant while filming the show. Here, Milano tells EW what it was like to tape the series (in heels no less), who her favorite guest judge was, and what to expect from this season… the best to date, according to Milano.

After a rough—albeit gif-tastic—start to the fourth season of Scandal, Mellie has finally traded in her Uggs and fried chicken for behavior more fitting of a First Lady. But all that will be somewhat tested on Thursday’s episode, when a former First Lady (Carol Locatell) comes back into the picture. Little does Mellie know, the previous FLOTUS is far from upstanding.
Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This is kind of a new one for you guys in terms of a tribe recklessly devouring all of their food supply. Tell us about how you came up with the decision to take all the comfort items back from Hunahpu for more rice. Are there any other options you and the producers discussed before settling on that?
JEFF PROBST: Having a tribe eat through or lose their entire staple of rice is one of the greatest gifts the reality gods can bestow upon a show like Survivor because it creates story. Big story. Once I heard they were low on rice and we were still very early in the game there really wasn’t any other consideration than to take every single thing at camp — other than the most bare essentials. In this case, it was easily justified because there were no mitigating circumstances — they simply ate it all. There has to be a big check for that kind of indulgence. But the big idea I am still circling is this: If you make the assumption that you can always trade for more rice (even if it’s your entire shelter) is eating all your rice so you can stay strong for challenges actually a decent strategy? I would not be surprised to see another tribe take the risk and employ this strategy in future seasons. So in my subconscious I am already thinking of how we might handle this same situation if a tribe didn’t have enough supplies to make a fair trade. Say for instance a tribe that had won no rewards, had only the barest of shelter, but like Hunahpu, also ate all their rice. What is the appropriate invoice at that point? READ FULL STORY

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.] READ FULL STORY
