They are determined to find each other. And if that means forcing everyone else to go along with their search, then SO BE IT! Maggie and Glenn will be together again! Or so they hope. The woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk all about tonight’s episode of the zombie drama and the evolution of her character. “It’s really the first time we’ve seen Maggie outside of the family Greene and without Glenn,” says Cohan.

Saturday Night Live announced tonight that its next host will be a repeat offender: Louis C.K., who first hosted the sketch show in the fall of 2012.
C.K. will have his second stint as host March 29, after the program takes a two-week hiatus. No musical guest has been announced yet — unless C.K., who created, writes, directs, edits, produces, and stars in the acclaimed FX series Louie, is somehow preparing to provide the episode’s music as well. The next season of Louie premieres on FX this May.
Is this the best new TV series title of 2014?
Science Channel has greenlit a new show titled I F—ing Love Science executive produced by CBS late-night star Craig Ferguson.
The series is inspired by the popular Facebook page “I F—ing Love Science,” created by British biology student Elise Andrew. The page has gathered nearly 5 million followers by posting photos, cartoons, and news related to science. The cable channel announced the show at its South by Southwest Interactive festival party in Austin on Saturday night.
Supernatural spinoff double scoop! You know how The CW’s new Supernatural series is called Tribes? Forget about that. The official title is now Supernatural: Bloodlines. Also, the show has cast actress Melissa Roxburgh in a series regular role to play Violet, a member of the werewolf pack. We’re told “Violet hides her true nature because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Nathaniel Bozulic), but when cornered, her inner wolf breaks free.”
Roxburgh was previously seen playing Blake in a couple episodes on The CW’s Arrow, and was even once in a Supernatural episode in 2012 as Lila Taylor, a love interest for Chronos. The Supernatural spinoff pilot will air as part of the regular CW series later this season. It’s described as a “sweeping drama about the various mafia-esque monster families that, unknowingly to humans, run the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural.”
But the Supernatural name change does lend itself to a question: Which title do you like better? Take our poll: READ FULL STORY
Fox has pulled out all the stops on its update of Carl Sagan’s astronomy classic Cosmos. Not only is the show going to air simultaneously across 10 News Corp.-owned networks — including Fox, National Geographic Channel, FX and Fox Sports — but the show has enlisted President Barack Obama to introduce the first episode.
In the video message, President Obama “invites a new generation to embrace the spirit of discovery and inspires viewers to explore new frontiers and imagine limitless possibilities for the future,” says Fox. Last Friday, Fox and Nat Geo hosted a special preview of the show at the White House as part of the first-ever White House Student Film Festival.
The 13-part Cosmos premieres Sunday, March 9 at 9 p.m. ET. Will Fox’s media empire and the lure of splashily produced science teachings be able to steal viewers’ attention from heavy competition such as AMC’s The Walking Dead? Or will TV viewers not have enough braaaaains to check it out?
Countdown to the 'Bachelor' finale: Juan Pablo and Clare find their potential wedding song -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
It’s officially time for day three of our countdown to the Bachelor finale! The subject of choice: A deleted scene featuring a tender moment between Juan Pablo and one of his final two women, Clare.
Before all the drama surrounding Juan Pablo and Clare’s dip in the ocean, they were just the happy couple who went on the first one-on-one date of the season. And during that date, they were treated to a private concert from Josh Krajcik. From that point on, they’ve considered Krajcik’s “No Better Lovers” their song. They even danced to it during a one-on-one date later in the season.
And in an exclusive deleted scene, we see Juan Pablo surprise Clare by playing it on his phone, a move that makes her tear up and proclaim, “We should just play it when we get married.”

ABC’s Mind Games isn’t an out-of-the-gates hit. Far from it — the show debuted Feb. 25 to 3.6 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demo, and slid to a 0.6 rating on Tuesday.
But Christian Slater, who plays one half of the fraternal duo (alongside Steve Zahn) in charge of a unique problem-solving company, says Mind Games just needs time to grow. READ FULL STORY
On Sunday, March 9, Fox and National Geographic Channel will simulcast the premiere of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a 13-part series hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson that follows in the epic footsteps of the Emmy Award-winning 1980 TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Ann Druyan, who co-wrote the original Cosmos with her late husband Carl Sagan, serves as an executive producer, and as Seth MacFarlane revealed in his SiriusXM Town Hall with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean, you can thank her for the trippy spaceship that becomes “home base” through this new journey across space and time.
“It was very important to her that it be something that was kind of timeless and very simple,” MacFarlane says in the excerpt below, noting that the original “Ship of the Imagination” was used only in the first episode of the original series and had an exterior shaped like a dandelion. “There was, I guess, some people smoking weed in 1980 also,” he jokes.
The new ship has a flat floor and flat ceiling: “The floor opens up to reveal the past, the ceiling opens up to reveal the future. The front wall is just a big open window,” he says. “It was important to us that [Neil] not just be a guy who’s lecturing us but that he actually take us to the places that he’s talking about.”
MacFarlane also spoke about the inspiration for his new film A Million Ways to Die in the West, which hits theaters this summer. His novel of the same name is on shelves now. Listen to that clip below as well. READ FULL STORY
John Corbett is set to rock out with Denis Leary on the small screen.
EW has confirmed that the Sex and the City actor will co-star alongside Leary in FX’s comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, which is written and produced by the Rescue Me alum.
Leary plays Johnny Rock, an aging rocker who ruined his dreams of being rich and famous as the lead singer of New York’s legendary early 1990s band The Heathens. Twenty-five years after breaking the band up on the same day their first and only record was released, Johnny, now a broke bartender, tries to get everyone back together, including Flash (Corbett), the much-acclaimed former lead guitarist of The Heathens who helped originally form the band.
Corbett returns to FX after starring in the short-lived poker comedy Lucky. His other TV credits include United States of Tara and a role as another aging rocker on NBC’s Parenthood.
Brothers & Sisters alum Dave Annable is giving the prime-time soap world another go.
EW has learned that Annable has been cast as a series regular in Fox pilot Red Band Society, the hospital soap about a group of teenage patients who form a bond while being treated in a children’s wing. Octavia Spencer also recently signed onto the project.
Annable, who last appeared in ABC’s 666 Park Avenue, will play Dr. William McAndrew, a rock star pediatric oncologist and surgeon who is compassionate and dedicated to his job but tries — usually in vain — not to get attached to his young patients.
The one-hour dramedy, from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, is considered a strong contender for fall. Fox will announce its official 2014-15 slate in May at the annual Upfronts presentations in New York City. Spielberg, Margaret Nagle and Justin Falvey are among the exec producers.
