'Covert Affairs' star Christopher Gorham takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

As Covert Affairs fans gear up for Tuesday’s season finale (USA, 10 p.m. ET), there’s a lot to ponder: What will Piper Perabo’s Annie do after hearing from her sister Danielle (Anne Dudek) that her voice changes when she talks to Christopher Gorham’s Auggie? How will Annie and Danielle make it out of Sweden with a target on their backs? And why is Auggie shirtless for an eye exam? For that last answer, and a full debriefing on the finale from Gorham, come back to Inside TV after the episode airs. In the meantime, enjoy his fun, spoiler-free EW Pop Culture Personality Test.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The season finale is an emotional hour. Name a TV moment that has made you cry.
CHRISTOPHER GORHAM: Everything makes me cry. I’m like an emotional wreck. Anything with children. Parenthood makes me cry. Just the opening credits, I’m like, “[In sobbing voice] Oh god, it’s so real. That’s how it is.”  READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Chuck,' 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Thanksgiving, Roomies!

As I’ll likely be in a Turkey coma on Friday, here’s something to be thankful for a little early… Spoiler Room: Special Wednesday/Pre-Holiday/Yay For a Long Weekend Edition! Yup, just a few scoops to take you into your hopefully lovely holiday.

But before the 411 — and at the risk of sounding very sappy — I have to say that I’m very thankful for your readership and highly entertaining comments and questions this year. Here’s to another great one!

On that note, don’t slack! Send questions and ponderings to spoilerroom@ew.com or Tweet ‘em to me @EWSandraG. Be well!

‘HIMYM’: ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODE…
The logline for next week’s How I Met Your Mother is incredibly teasey. Observe: When “Robin receives bad news, she decides to lie about it to the gang. Meanwhile, Marshall hangs Christmas decorations on the house in the ‘burbs with help from his neighbor.” But still unsatisfied, I hopped on the phone yesterday with HIMYM executive producer Carter Bays, who talked about the next episode. (To read part of our chat, click here.)

What I left out about the Dec. 5 episode, however, is something that truly sent chills of anticipation down my spine: While Bays said he believes it’s “one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” he also expressed a little apprehension, saying he hopes viewers will see it the same way. “You know, honestly, I hope people stay on board after the next episode,” he tells me. “I think there’s some incredible acting in it, and it’s a really nicely told story that we’re very pleased with. But… this Barney and Robin stuff is a third rail for our show in a good way. It’s nice to get a little jolt every now and then, but it is so divisive among fans from what I’ve gathered. So hopefully people will enjoy the story for what it is. But yeah, we’re nervous about where the story goes. Excited, and very proud of it, but I hope people stay on board. I think they will.” READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs': Peter Gallagher says 'revealing' episode proves Arthur is 'a badass motherf–––er'

In tonight’s episode of Covert Affairs, Arthur Campbell at the center of the action unlike we’ve seen before.

In the revealing episode, Arthur (Peter Gallagher) revisits his past as a former covert operative, a post he held during the Cold War in Berlin, and finds himself crossing paths with a former flame who betrayed him. “It causes all sorts of interesting personal, domestic, and professional tension,” teases Gallagher. “The initial conflict is that I’m going back to see a woman I was close to, [but] the audience will know quickly whether or not they’re worried about Arthur [cheating on his wife].”  READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Suburgatory,' 'Once Upon a Time': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Go Rangers!

Just kidding. Last night was actually the most baseball I’ve watched since the last time I watched a repeat of A League of Their Own on TBS, so don’t take that declaration too seriously. I don’t care who wins — either way, we don’t get Fringe tonight. Pfft.

That said, I have some scoop today that will hopefully satisfy your need for one more week — or make the delay even more painful. I can’t decide which is more truthful, but let’s try to see the sunny side of things.

In other news, enjoy spoils and teases from a ton of other shows below! If you don’t see a show you like, send me an e-mail with your request: spoilerroom@ew.com. (I read and appreciate them all!) Twitter also works: @EWSandraG. I also try to comb comments, but I sometimes miss those. To make sure they reach my eyes, use the two previously mentioned methods. Don’t be shy!

See y’all next week!

‘FRINGE’: WHAT YOU WON’T SEE TONIGHT
As great as last night’s Game 6 was, it was hard to ignore the collective sigh among Fringe fans on news that Game 7 would result in a one-week delay of the new Fringe episode. And I’m right there with you — that sucks. Luckily, before I even knew the outcome of the game, I’d planned a healthy serving of dish for you. READ FULL STORY

Cable shows: Hottest program this summer was...

Who cared about broadcast shows like America’s Got Talent or So You Think You Can Dance? Cable programs had no trouble drumming up the eyeballs this summer, which is probably why viewership levels were up year-to-year among ad-supported basic nets like TNT, USA, History and MTV (4 percent) versus what the Big Four broadcasters were attracting (down 3 percent).

Did your favorite ad-supported cable show make the top 10 cut? (We’re talking just the nets with commercial, people. Not HBO or Showtime). Check out the charts below which take into account the top 10 new and returning shows on ad-supported cable among viewers through Aug. 21. (Note to tweeners: Kiddie nets were excluded). And one other thing: Who knew there was a show called Mounted in Alaska? READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Castle,' 'Community': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Did you know the first 100 words of this column are the last 100 words I write every week? I say this for two reasons: 1) If you’ve ever noticed the coherency of this column increases as you work your way through it, you now know why. 2) You now also have an incentive to click to the second page of this column. (Yes! I’m paginated now! << I don’t know if that statement is the “Spoiler Room” speaking or yours truly. I’m going to say it’s the “room” since I, in fact, am not paginated.)

At any rate, take note of the little number “2″ because it’s your path 2 more scoop. (See what I did there.) Hey, I warned you just one paragraph ago…

Remember to send scoop requests to spoilerroom@ew.com (note to the two smooshed “r”s) and follow me on Twitter for more things that don’t make a lot of sense and a few things that do (like TV scoop!). @EWSandraG READ FULL STORY

Basic cable shows: What's hot (and what's not)

We know what you’ve been thinking: Is Extreme Couponing a hit for TLC? Is anyone really watching American Restoration? Lucky for you, we’ve got the results from the second quarter, which will not only allow us to gauge the success of series that aired during the regular TV season (hi, The Killing!), but also take into consideration shows that began in June (welcome back to TV, Falling Skies‘ Noah Wyle). Averages are based on the premiere (or original) episodes only; no reruns go into the making of these stats. Enjoy after the jump (and no goofing on Khloe & Lamar). READ FULL STORY

'True Blood,' 'Torchwood,' 'The Closer,' 'The Killing': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

As you read this, I am likely standing in the center of the sun. That’s not meant to be poetic. I’m on vacation in my homeland of Texas! But I couldn’t leave without first giving you your weekly helping of TV scoop. In exchange, can someone pick up my mail?

Speaking of mail, send me some! Spoiler requests, casting suggestions for the numerous primetime openings we seem to have, or even your pilot questions. Email spoilerroom@ew.com or Tweet me @EWSandraG. I’ll check them when I return in two weeks!

Note: Small programming change: Next week, I’ll have a very special Q&A for Weeds fans instead of your regular column. You’ll enjoy it! Promise!

‘TRUE BLOOD’: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED ROUND 2

Last week, we tackled some of your burning questions. This week, it’s round 2. The countdown to the June 26 premiere of True Blood is on! Here’s some stuff to tide you over.

Hi. I am a HUGE fan of True Blood. I know this season is primarily about Sookie/Eric, but this Bill fan wants to know if the former couple will have any decent scenes together as well? Will Bill be pursuing Sookie or is he too busy with his new power position? — CK
I know you’ve seen the first eight minutes, but the next eight will definitely answer your question about whether Bill cares or not. That said, Bill’s storyline is sometimes very twisted, but mostly just full of twists. READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs' star Christopher Gorham talks Auggie's Tweetcast, torso, and tricks of the trade

Fans of Covert Affairs‘ Auggie (Christopher Gorham) are getting to see what the blind CIA tech head does when he’s not “handling” Annie (Piper Perabo), courtesy of the six-week Tweetcast: Mission Budapest. Developed by the shows creators, writers, and Gorham, the series of tweets — including videos, photos, audio streams, and classified documents — follow Auggie as he guides two CIA operatives with a romantic past through an op in Hungary and continues to live his life outside of the office (have we gotten video of him swimming yet?).

You’ve got to love the idea of CIA operatives tweeting their whereabouts next to photos of their faces. “Yes, that did occur to all of us,” Gorham laughs. “The suspension of disbelief is that it’s not the regular Twitter, that when you’re following the Tweetcast, you are becoming a CIA officer and it’s an interoffice Twitter.” The real mission, of course, is to expand the world of the series, assure the audience that Auggie does more than serve Annie, and introduce agents who, at some point, may enter the show. (A filmed resolution to the Tweetcast will air during Covert Affairs‘ July 12 episode as a payoff to fans, who can also help influence how the mission unfolds.)  READ FULL STORY
