The business makeover genre gets tweaked in Comedy Central’s new series Nathan For You, in which writer Nathan Fielder (Important Things with Demetri Martin) attempts to help reinvigorate small businesses using controversial, often ill-advised methods. In the process, he documents people’s over-the-top reactions — and shows there’s no idea too extreme. (Think “poo” flavored frozen yogurt.)
“My favorite part about helping small businesses is seeing that smile on the owner’s face when I’m done,” Fielder tells EW.com. “I had no idea that most people smile with their lips tightly together and the edges of their mouth lower than the center.” Check out an exclusive trailer of the show below: READ FULL STORY »
The 50th anniversary really kicks into high gear this Monday when Genie Francis returns to General Hospital on ABC. The icing on the cake continues on Feb. 19, when Kin Shriner will reprise his role as Scotty.
EW obtained these exclusive first looks of the actors — back where they belong in Port Charles.
The cast of Scandal were big winners at last week’s NAACP Image awards. The show walked away with a win for Best Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama, which was given to star Kerry Washington.
In this week’s installment of EW’s Scandal video, a series that has been produced all season by cast member Josh Malina, get a behind the scenes peek at this celebration-filled night, which was made even sweeter when Washington walked away with the Best Supporting Actress award for Django Unchained. (The cast watched the win from backstage while waiting to do press after their collective victory.)
Watch this week’s episode below, as well as others from previous weeks you may have missed.

On tonight’s episode of Workaholics, Tyler Posey is trading fur and claws for f-bombs and bathtubs filled with off-brand Four Loko. The Teen Wolf actor guest stars on Comedy Central’s bromantic favorite as Jillian’s (Jillian Bell) nephew Bobby, a cocky 18-year-old who enlists the TelAmeriCorp gang to help him lose his virginity.
The role was a dream come true for Posey. “I’m a HUGE fan of the show,” he told EW via email from the remote, undisclosed location where he’s currently filming Teen Wolf‘s third season. “I have every episode recorded.” And though he had a blast appearing on the show, Posey’s also not sure how the spot turned out: “I’m kind of nervous about seeing it because I’ve never really done comedy.”
Should the heartthrob consider branching out from teen dramas more often? Judge for yourself by watching the exclusive clip below. Warning: Though there’s bleeping, it’s still pretty NSFW.
Did you watch NBC’s reboot of Smash last night? If you did, then you saw guest-star Jennifer Hudson’s first appearance as Broadway star Veronica “Ronnie” Moore (Hudson appears in 3 out of the first 4 Smash installments). Ronnie first appears in Beautiful, a Broadway show-within-Smash, and performs a rollicking swing number called “Mama Makes Three.” But that was not how producers initially intended to introduce Ronnie.

This is one juicy clip from this week’s Scandal, but a warning: there’s quite a bit of scoopy goodness within. So if you don’t like spoilery moments, you best avert your eyes.
Even if you don’t like teases, you need to watch this clip of Olivia and Fitz in their first encounter in what seems like forever because, 1) It’s steamy and filled with that delicious Fitz-Liv star-crossed, breathy dialogue we love, 2) KISSSSS! 3) Fitz reveals that he knows much more than Mellie thinks about their baby’s birth and, 4) We learn that even though she’s struggled with doubts, Liv is serious about this thing with Edison — but who is she kidding? There’s no resisting FITZ!
Click below, enjoy, swoon, and watch Scandal this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. READ FULL STORY »
On this week’s Criminal Minds, Hotch and Co. will head to the eastern shore of Maryland where a father (Ken Olin) needs the team’s help to search for his two teenage daughters. The twist in this tale? The girls’ mother went missing exactly a year before.
“The idea is what’s going on with the father? Is he a serial offender or is he the unluckiest man on the planet and the victim of a serial offender?” executive producer Erica Messer says of the episode, which she wrote and was also the first episode of the show to be directed by star Thomas Gibson, who Messer says “rose to the occasion” on his first outing.
“I think it was great for Thomas who’s, obviously, been with us from day one, to sit in the meetings we sit in 24 times a year to make these episodes and to really see the behind the scenes,” says Messer of Gibson, who previously directed two episodes of his previous show, Dharma & Greg. “Of course he’s seen it for 180 episodes on this series and on others, but it’s a totally different thing to be in that seat where, as a director, you’re responsible for every single thing on that screen. That means there’s a lot of questions on your way and a lot of responsibility and a lot riding on your decisions and choices.” READ FULL STORY »
Just so you know, Mac and D.B. met before — at some work shindig, where somebody covered Freddy Mercury with a karaoke machine, which prompted a local to hurl chicken wings.
But for the purposes of the CSI and CSI: New York fans, this will be the first time Mac (Gary Sinise) and D.B. (Ted Danson) meet on camera. Here’s a sneak peek of the crossover episode that starts on CSI tomorrow at 10 p.m. and ends on CSI: NY this Friday. READ FULL STORY »
Get ready for a little extra Castle and Beckett.
EW has learned that ABC has picked up an additional episode of Castle, bringing its season 5 order to 24 episodes. The additional episode is expected to allow the series to air another new episode in April, rather than a repeat.
Castle, which this season made good on its promise to have Beckett and Castle in a romantic relationship, has seen a slight dip in ratings in recent weeks, but it remains a strong performer. In all likelihood, the next bit of good news for fans of the series will be official word on season 6. Networks usually start making announcements about renewal ahead of the fast-approaching May Upfronts.
As Timmy on CBS’s Rules of Engagement, Adhir Kalyan has a wealth of comedic moments to tackle. And as the show prepares to kick off season 7 tonight on CBS, EW asked the actor to revisit some of his favorite moments.
So Kalyan was nice enough to come up with five highlights, presented below — with video clips!
1. “Flirting” – Season 4, episode 1
“Bible Study episode — Russell asks Timmy to retrieve his cellphone from the apartment of a girl he’s had a one-night stand with. When Timmy arrives at the girl’s apartment, he finds himself drafted into a Bible Study Class, as well as a situation that becomes increasingly more complicated.” READ FULL STORY »
Tonight’s episode of Castle marks one of the most highly anticipated character returns of this season.
Since the season 5 premiere, Beckett (Stana Katic) has had her sights on Jack Coleman’s Sen. Bracken, the man she learned was responsible for her mother’s murder. And while he may have slipped through her fingers the first time around (technically, she let him walk as part of a “deal”) it looks like Beckett is ready to take him down.
In the exclusive clip below, Beckett declares to Castle (Nathan Fillion) that she has no intention on missing her chance to get justice. Castle, meanwhile, doesn’t seem thrilled about the idea. Watch and make sure to catch the episode, tonight at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. READ FULL STORY »
On last week’s Chicago Fire, Severide (Taylor Kinney) was ready to go under the knife to repair a serious shoulder injury that has plagued him most of the season and was facing a lengthy downtime as a result. This week’s episode finds post-surgery Severide coming face-to-face with someone from his past (Shane McRae), a firefighter who entered the firehouse while he was away and is set to recur starting this week.
