The new issue of Entertainment Weekly boasts a six-page article on the hit FX spy spoof Archer, an interview with star H. Jon Benjamin, and creator Adam Reed’s favorite episodes. (Elsewhere on EW.com you’ll find an exclusive photograph of the entire Archer “cast” and a guide to the show’s running gags.) But how exactly does the Archer behind-the-scenes team create the show’s remarkable animation? Using a recent sex scene between Sterling and supposed Colombian drug cartel godmother La Madrina as an example, art director Neal Holman details the crafting of the Sterling sausage. (Phrasing!!!)

The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s fourth season is almost upon us! But you don’t have to wait until Sunday night to get your fix. We have a few exclusive images from the episode for you right here. (Click through all three pages to see them all!) First up is Rick Grimes rocking his new iconic look from the comics with the white shirt and fur-lined jacked. Looks like Rick is also rocking a growing beard and a heavy piece of artillery as well. But who — or what— is he looking at? Terminus, perhaps? (Click here for the full uncropped version of the photo.)
You might recognize Clara Mamet from her ABC show The Neighbors, which is about keeping up with the Joneses—if the Joneses were aliens. (Much like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, except Neighbors is scripted.) Or you might recognize her because she looks quite a bit like her sister Zosia Mamet, who plays Shoshanna on Girls. (Yep, that makes her another daughter of David Mamet.)
But soon, you may recognize her from movies as well. Mamet just wrote, directed and starred in her first film, Two-Bit Waltz, an autobiographical jaunt that features William H. Macy (Fargo), Rebecca Pigeon (Red), and Jared Gilman (Moonrise Kingdom). We stopped to catch up with the 19-year-old to discuss her movie, what it’s like having aliens for neighbors, and whether we can expect to see a Mamet Sisters project anytime soon. We also got a sneak peek at tonight’s episode of The Neighbors; check below to watch.
The 28th Survivor season finale and reunion show is heading back to its roots — Wednesday night. Entertainment Weekly has learned that the Survivor: Cagayan three-hour extravaganza will air on CBS, May 21 from 8-11pm. Richard Hatch won his million dollar check on a Wednesday night back in the summer of 2000, then the show (and the finale/reunion combo) moved to Thursdays. But in 2002 during season 4, CBS moved the Survivor: Marquesas finale to Sunday night. It went back to Thursday for Survivor: Thailand later in 2002, but then returned to Sunday after that for Survivor: The Amazon is 2003. And that is where the final episode and reunion have stayed ever since…until now. READ FULL STORY
The CW’s new drama The 100 premieres Wednesday night after Arrow. The post-apocalyptic drama centers on a group of troubled kids who are sent to Earth 97 years after a terrible event that left the planet soaked in radiation to see if the world is habitable once again. The problem? These kids — well, most of them — don’t want to live under the rule of the adults who sent them to Earth to possibly die.

With TV’s D.J. Tanner and Winnie Cooper (Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar) vying head-to-glittery-head for mirrorball trophy, more than a few of season 18′s Dancing With the Stars votes could depend on whether viewers preferred Full House or The Wonder Years. After Monday’s premiere, the DWTS cast — along with Our Pros! — weighed in on some of their favorite memories from those series. Find out whose dog’s name is “D.J. Tanner” (!?!) in the video below….
[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE LATEST BATES MOTEL!!!!]
Tonight’s Bates Motel had a whopper of a twist in the final moments: Dylan’s father is…his mother’s brother! Yep, according to Norma (Vera Farmiga), her bro Caleb (Kenny Johnson) is Dylan’s dad. This will likely not end well so we talked to Motel EP Carlton Cuse about this major development.
EW: Tonight’s big reveal was that Caleb is the father of Dylan. Did you all plan that from the start of the series?
CARLTON CUSE: Like most good creative ideas they evolve and they grow richer over time. Back when I first discussed the show with A&E I mentioned with them that I would love to add a brother character number one because I thought it would be great to have a window of normalcy to look out at Norma and Norman through the perspective of this other guy. Also, it just felt like this dynamic of this other brother kind of creating triangulation in the family dynamic would be super great. Kerry Ehrin and I put flesh and bone on the Dylan character and I think as we started writing him and developing him and actually watching him and seeing how hurt and damaged he was being this sort of third wheel in this family, it felt like a natural progression to try and explain that and deepen our understanding of how that happened. Then, honestly, it was Vera who sent us the idea and thought What if we do this. Kerry and Vera and I all talked about it. It just was one of those things that “Oh this completely makes sense.” It was all kind of sitting on the table and then it all kind of fell into place.
So where will this storyline go?
I think it has incredibly powerful consequences for Dylan. It’s just such a horrible revelation for his self-worth. It really sort of spins him into a dark place in concert with the fact that he’s unwittingly found himself right in the middle of this crazy drug family. I think those two things spiral on top of each other. That’s what we’re following for the rest of the season: the downward spiral of Dylan. I’ve talked before about how the thematic of this season is, Who am I? Now that Dylan gets this really horrible answer to this question, now he’s dealing with the consequences of it. It’s really an opportunity for Max Thieriot to shine. It goes to some pretty twisty places over the course of the season. The event kind of catalyzes his event for the rest of the season.
Will we meet Norma’s parents?
We’ve had conversations about other family members but this is kind of as far as its goes. You can’t take too many Bates relatives at one time.
Kenny Johnson is sorta perfect because he looks like Max.
I think he looks remarkably like him. If you took Max Thieriot and just led a hard and dissolute life for 20 years, he would look just like Kenny Johnson. It was sort of the brilliance of April Webster, our fantastic casting director, who found Kenny. I knew Kenny because he was on The Shield and The Shield was done by Shawn Ryan. I gave Shawn Ryan his first job on Nash Bridges and Shawn and I are friends. Shawn had extolled how amazing Kenny was and how fantastic he was an actor. We just jumped at the opportunity for him to join our show.
We’re also meeting Michael Vartan’s character. He seems so nice. Is that even possible on Bates Motel?
Well, that’s really the question: Is Norma capable of having a relationship with a nice, normal person? I think this is a problem for a lot of people in life in general. There’s definitely a lot of people who kind of just don’t choose well when it comes to relationships because they’re sort of drawn to qualities that don’t tend to go with people who turn out to be nice guys or gals. I think Norma in some way is being handed the life she wants on a silver plate and will it work out.
This was probably the most shocking episode so far. Are there more twists to come?
Yeah, there are some other surprises coming up this season. I think that’s kind of the fun of the show. This is not like a small nuanced cable drama where one thing happens. The story telling is intentionally pretty full-throttle. There’s a bunch of other stuff that happens.
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of Teen Wolf, we ask that you avert your eyes. As promised in the promos, the show said goodbye to a major character in this week’s penultimate episode. So do not continue reading if you don’t want to know who it was. READ FULL STORY
Monday night’s Bates Motel, airing at 10 p.m. on A&E, features a truly twisted family reunion when Caleb (Kenny Johnson) pays a visit to the Bates Motel in order to reunite with his sister Norma (Vera Farmiga). In last year’s season finale, Norma revealed to Norman (Freddie Highmore) that her brother had raped her when they were growing up.
EW has an exclusive peek at the episode which features a rather tense initial run-in between Caleb and Norma’s other son Dylan (Max Thieriot). Watch below: READ FULL STORY
The pranksters of truTV’s hidden camera comedy series Impractical Jokers are leaving the city and heading someplace rife for comedy: the country!
As the New York boys head to Texas (in an episode aptly titled “Bigger in Texas”), the funny foursome do everything in their power to make life in the Lone Star State as difficult as it can possibly be. Joe, Sal, Q and Murr throw Texas tourists for a loop when they take over the rodeo and attempt to sell their cowboy gear and teach ranchhand skills — to a ridiculously silly degree.
Check out EW’s clip from the special “on the road” episode below, which finds Joe and Sal trying to obey Murr and Q’s commands as they pull the rug over a group of unsuspecting tourists — by giving quite likely the worst cowboy lasso lesson known to man. READ FULL STORY
Glee reaches the 100 episode milestone with Tuesday’s hour, fittingly titled “100.” To celebrate the occasion, guest-star Gwyneth Paltrow reprises her Emmy-winning role of substitute teacher Holly Holliday (Kristin Chenoweth and Chace Crawford also make appearances) and even gets to croon a cover of Pharrell’s Oscar-nominated hit “Happy.” EW has the exclusive first listen of her version below.

In this exclusive clip of Tuesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, everyone seems to get pretty comfortable in Aviva’s bedroom, including both her current and ex-husband, who happens to be there with another housewife Sonja. Well, we all know that everyone has pretty much slept with Harry already, but apparently it may have been in the same bed as well! Watch below: READ FULL STORY
