10 burning questions about MTV's guilty pleasure 'Are You the One?'

My latest obsession? MTV’s Are You the One?, a Real World-style dating show that drops 10 guys and 10 girls in Hawaii and asks them to work together to find the perfect matches among them. If they can successfully pair up with their predetermined soul mates, they’ll all split a million bucks.

After just two episodes, I’ve gotten deeply invested in the show, and I can’t quite explain why. If a team of matchmakers told you that only one Bachelor contestant was scientifically compatible with Juan Pablo, wouldn’t that completely change the way you watched? That’s how it feels with Are You the One?, which plays up our  voyeuristic love of TV dating by promising you that, yes, 10 of these couples actually do belong together.

Or do they? The first two episodes have proven that mutual attraction (they’re all beautiful, FYI) and surface connection (“You like the movie Labyrinth? Wait, I like Labyrinth!”) don’t a perfect match make, and therein is the guilty fun of the show. It’s as if The Challenge and The Bachelor had a weird but gorgeous, chiseled baby who only cries on Tuesday nights at 11 p.m.

In my conversations with a few dear friends who have also fallen victim to the show’s puerile charms, we realized there were quite a few questions that we needed answering, so I took them straight to the producers. Read on — or, if burning questions aren’t your thing, scroll all the way down for an exclusive clip from Tuesday night’s episode. READ FULL STORY

'Falling Skies' season 3 finale: Showrunner Remi Aubuchon answers your burning questions!

The third season of Falling Skies has kept viewers on the edge of their seats as the stakes were raised for the Mason family and other beloved characters, but Sunday the TNT sci-fi show wrapped up for the summer.

EW has answers to your burning questions about tonight’s finale straight from showrunner Remi Aubuchon.

SPOILER ALERT: Stop right there, move no further, as if a Mega Mech just stomped into your path, unless you’re ready to read details of tonight’s season finale of Falling Skies. READ FULL STORY

'HIMYM' unveils the mother! The creators answer your burning questions -- EXCLUSIVE

Yep, folks, we finally met the mother: Tonight’s How I Met Your Mother revealed actress Cristin Milioti as the show’s titular — and, until now, extremely elusive — character.

The unveiling took place in the final few seconds of the season 8 finale, as Milioti’s yet-unnamed character simply walked up to a Long Island Rail Road ticket booth to purchase one ticket to the fictional Farhampton, presumably to go play in the band at the impending nuptials between Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders). The show didn’t exactly spell out the reveal (casual fans could have missed it), but there was one key to knowing the doe-eyed girl was the mother: the bright yellow umbrella she was holding. That’s the linchpin accessory the show’s narrator and father Ted (Josh Radnor) previously set up as the woman’s signature — and identifying — item.

EW was on set for the filming of the game-changing scene, and scored an exclusive interview with co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. The pair revealed, among many other things, that we likely would have met the mother in May 2013 no matter what: The original plan was for the show to end after just eight seasons (meaning it would have been over…now), with the mother briefly introduced in the series finale. Only after HIMYM was extended to nine seasons did Bays and Thomas make the decision to reveal the mother before the final season — in tonight’s episode. (Though it seems Ted won’t be coming face-to-face with her until much later next season.)

While the scene answered the biggest burning question — who was the woman at the center of the saga that Ted has been reliving for his kids (and viewers) since the show first launched in 2005? — it left us with many, many more: Why do this now? Why didn’t they cast a big, big star? Why wasn’t the mother actually Robin? How was the long-awaited casting kept secret from the show’s incredibly rabid followers? Read on as Bays and Thomas break down the Mother of all reveals.


'Falling Skies' season finale: Showrunner Remi Aubuchon answers your burning questions!

Falling Skies has been spicing up its addicting recipe of sci-fi, family drama, action and major creep-outs throughout its second season, and it all came to a head in tonight’s finale.

SPOILER ALERT! Be afraid, very afraid, almost as afraid as you are of crawlies, to read on if you haven’t yet watched the Falling Skies season finale.

The 2nd Mass’ season-long journey to Charleston ended in disappointment and new lessons for the Revolutionary War-alluding show. Fans got some fun surprises (and spine-tingling ones!) in “A More Perfect Union,” the season 2 capper to the Steven Spielberg-produced TNT show.

After watching the cliffhanger-filled finale (and taking some time to catch our breath afterward) EW chatted with showrunner Remi Aubuchon. The writer/producer is currently knee-deep in prep for season 3, which begins shooting in less than three days! But he took a break from his work in Vancouver, Canada to talk at length with us about shooting the finale and what fans can expect when Falling Skies returns next summer for another 10-episode season.

Aubuchon talked about the new addition to their lineup of alien species, revealed what Red Eye was silently saying to Ben as he died and cleared up a point of confusion about the skitters that’s been a subject of great debate among fans since Lourdes and Anne made a major discovery last season.

'Revenge' season finale: Creator Mike Kelley answers burning questions!

Last night’s season finale of ABC’s delectable soap Revenge — perfectly titled “Reckoning” — was, in a word, explosive. And filled with juicy cliffhanger after cliffhanger.

With so many doors opened, there are so many questions that are begged: Is Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) really dead? What’s going on with the increasingly tangled love life of Emily (Emily Van Camp), Jack (Nick Wechsler), Amanda (Margarita Levieva), Daniel (Josh Bowman), and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe)? Is Amanda’s baby really Jack’s? Who will play Emily’s mother? And what will the character be like? How did the show so perfectly pick Florence and the Machine’s haunting “Seven Devils” to play during the episode?

To answer these questions, we went straight to the source: Revenge creator and executive producer Mike Kelley, who holds the keys to the show’s castle. As usual, he was tight-lipped about some things — but let a few other juicy tidbits slip. Read on for the answers to all your burning questions from last night’s season finale.

'Pretty Little Liars' season 2 finale reveals identity of 'A': Burning questions answered! -- EXCLUSIVE

The wait is over: The identity of the elusive “A” was revealed on Monday’s new episode of ABC Family’s addictive teen mystery-drama Pretty Little Liars. The fast-paced episode careened through a Psycho homage and a masquerade ball before — SPOILER ALERT! — dropping the bombshell that variously snobby clinger Mona Vanderwall (Janel Parrish) was “A,” the cyber-bully who’d been terrorizing Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) since the death of their pal Allison (Sasha Pieterse) in the show’s 2010 premiere.

The reveal, of course, leads to so many questions: Why Mona? What was her motive? Did she have help? Is there a “Team A” now? Will Mona be back when Pretty Little Liars returns for season 3 in June? What’s happening next season? And we should address the other shocker of last night’s episode: Why kill Maya? To answer those burning questions and more, EW tapped series creator Marlene King and executive producer Oliver Goldstick for an exclusive interview to fill us in on all the scoop:
