New season of 'Killer Karaoke' gets super-freaky with cow brains -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you think getting up in front of a crowded bar to sing is difficult, then you probably wouldn’t do well as a contestant on truTV’s Killer Karaoke.

The ridiculously hilarious and slightly demented competition show returns Feb. 20 for a new season with new host Mark McGrath. Contestants attempt to sing karaoke hits without missing a word while facing some extreme and bizarre challenges.

This year, Killer Karaoke is upping the ante with a fresh new format: Each episode’s competition will begin with six contestants singing an opening number, after which they will be ranked based on a scoring system. The highest-ranking players will earn advantages throughout the show, such as deciding who goes first, picking their challenges, and sometimes even choosing what obstacles their opponent will face. But the ultimate goal is winning over the audience, who will be voting throughout the competition. When all is “sung and done,” the top two contestants must face each other — as well as their biggest fears — in a final head-to-head battle. The singer with the highest score will then win the weekly cash prize of up to $10,000.

Check out this exclusive clip from the new season with contestant Lamar doing his best Rick James while some super-freaky things get dropped on his head. Warning: The clip is both hilarious and a little gross if you don’t like cow brains.

'Revenge' First Look: Conrad's ex faces off with Victoria -- EXCLUSIVE

The eye daggers are flying fast and furious in this exclusive photo of an intense meeting between Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Conrad’s first ex-wife, played by Gail O’Grady.

Viewers will meet O’Grady, best known for her three years playing Donna Abandando on NYPD Blue, at the end of Sunday’s episode of the ABC soap, but as this photo from the March 9 episode shows, she’s going to stick around awhile to cause some trouble.

Revenge airs a new episode Sunday and returns March 9 in a new time slot, at 10 p.m. ET.

Check out another photo from the March episode, titled “Payback,” below.

Retta takes on Mario Lopez in the Olympics on 'Hollywood Game Night' -- EXCLUSIVE

NBC’s pop culture party series Hollywood Game Night is amping up the fun for its official season two return on Monday, January 20 at 8 PM ET.

Part of the joy of the show is finding out which celebs will be pitted against one another as they partake in a variety of kooky games that will have you screaming answers at your TV. In the two-part premiere, host Jane Lynch will welcome stars Michael Chiklis, Mario Lopez, Paget Brewster, Alyssa Milano, Thomas Lennon, and Retta to the fray.

Below, watch an exclusive first look clip at one of the new games in season two: “Clue-Boom,” which forces players into a pass-the-bowl guess-the-word game before time runs out and the party explodes.

Kenya Moore says she's having a baby on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


It’s not often that the phrase “I’m definitely going to have a child” is met with “Can you be a little more specific?” Generally the response is more cheers-and-hugs oriented, but when you’re dealing in the Real Housewives franchise, it’s important to ask for as much specificity as possible, particularly regarding words like “definitely.”

A main point in Kenya Moore’s storyline this season has been getting some closure on her mother’s abandonment of her as a child, and that includes wanting to start a family of her own. But as she’s yet to even name her boyfriend on the show (unless you count “African prince”), her “baby daddy” prospects are limited. Watch below as Kenya sits her slightly skeptical family down to tell them the steps she’s taking to prepare to have a child. READ FULL STORY

'Happy Endings' creator reveals what would have happened to Penny and Dave -- and one GIGANTIC plot twist

It’s been almost a year since ABC sadly canceled its incredibly undervalued sitcom Happy Endings after its third season, and the bite still stings — especially since VH1 teased fans by airing the entire series on New Year’s Day, thereby reminding viewers just what a gem this little ensemble comedy was.

Show creator David Caspe and fiancée Casey Wilson (who starred on the series as perennially unlucky-yet-unswervingly plucky Penny) called in to EW’s TV Editors Hour on Sirius XM to talk about the dearly departed series and what they hope would have happened for the characters. Specifically, we inquired whether Penny and Dave (Zachary Knighton) would ever have gotten together, as a budding romance between the two was briefly suggested in the second season.

'Modern Family' sneak peek: Jesse Eisenberg guest spot is straight out of your judgey neighbor nightmares

In the episode, which also features guest spots from Jane Krakowski and John Benjamin Hickey, The Social Network actor plays Asher, a neighbor of Mitchell and Cam’s whose eco-friendly ways cross the line from admirable to agitating.

The exclusive clip below shows an interaction between Mitchell and Eisenberg’s character. Check it out: READ FULL STORY

'Penny Dreadful': See a new image from Showtime's upcoming monster mash -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Showtime’s new horror-drama, Penny Dreadful, premiering this Spring, posits that Victorian London was one helluva town, in which characters from classic novels like Frankenstein and Dracula crossed paths with each other—and with an American sharpshooter (Josh Hartnett) and a mysterious woman (Eva Green) who’s battling her own demons (the pair can be seen in the above exclusive image) .

Creator John Logan (Skyfall) says he drew inspiration from ’40s monster mash-up movies. Says Logan, “I thought there was incredible excitement to slamming all those myths together so that’s what we’re embracing in Penny Dreadful.” Though his take has a premium-cable bent — “It’s highly erotic, very bloody” — there’s a humanity to the horror. “It’s about building a family,” says Logan. “Admittedly, the creepiest family you can imagine.”

'Top Chef' preview: Jon Favreau helps cheftestants find their voices -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


This season of Top Chef has been one big party down in New Orleans. In this week’s episode, actor/director Jon Favreau stops by and asks the cheftestants to dig deep to put their own culinary visions on a plate.

In this exclusive clip from Wednesday night’s episode, Favreau first gets a little personal with the final five chefs while enjoying some food truck oysters. Take a look below:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's EW Q&A: From Golden Globe hosts to Darth Vader's moms

This interview originally appeared in the Dec. 20th issue of Entertainment Weekly.

In the mid-’90s, they found themselves on the same improv comedy team. In the mid-aughts, they became the first female duo to anchor the “Weekend Update” desk on Saturday Night Live. A few years later, they costarred on the big screen in Baby Mama. And today? Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are still finding ways to sit or stand next to each other while trading punchlines. In fact, they just tackled the daunting roles of guest editors for a recent issue of EW. The duo’s next reunion will take place on Sunday, when they host the Golden Globes for the second year in a row.

In the meantime, each is thoroughly busy on her own: Poehler stars on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, is writing a memoir, and is exec-producing an upcoming NBC sitcom and Comedy Central’s Broad City, while Fey, creator and star of 30 Rock, will hit theaters next year in Muppets Most Wanted and This Is Where I Leave You, and recently sold sitcoms to Fox and NBC. Since Poehler is based in L.A. and Fey is stationed in New York, EW decided to spare almost every expense and reunite them for a long-distance conversation over three bagels and one muffin, with Poehler, 42, chatting from EW’s West Coast bureau and Fey, 43, joining via Skype from New York. How did their freewheeling conversation come to involve George Clooney in a Ziploc bag, Siamese-twin judges, and a high-flying geisha? Read on.

'Crossbones' EP sheds light on John Malkovich's NBC pirate drama -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Is there room on the high seas for two elaborate pirate shows? We’ll find out this spring, when NBC premieres the swashbuckling series Crossbones — months after Starz brings its own salty tale, Black Sails to the small screen. There are, however, plenty of differences between the two programs… and not just because one’s on pay cable (read: nudity!) and the other isn’t.

To wit: While both shows are set in the same year (1715) and place (the pirate paradise of New Providence, an island in the Bahamas), Black Sails is a gritty prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Crossbones, by contrast, is a fact-based drama that focuses on one of the world’s most notorious real-life pirates: Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard (played by John Malkovich. Yes, that John Malkovich). The action begins when the British government has assassin Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle of Covert Affairs) go undercover to bring Blackbeard down. But like many a clandestine agent, Lowe soon finds himself being drawn deeper and deeper into Teach’s world — and even becoming sympathetic to the scoundrel’s political ideals.

Want to know even more? Check out our Q&A with Oscar-nominated producer Walter F. Parkes, who’s executive producing Crossbones alongside Laurie MacDonald, his wife and business partner, and series creator Neil Cross, whom you may know as the mastermind behind the BBC’s Luther. READ FULL STORY

'Salem' first look: Shane West and Ashley Madekwe travel back in time -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Believe it or not, there are more witches coming your way. WGN’s Salem takes place in 17th-century Massachusetts and tries to uncover the truth behind the town’s famous witch trials.

Created by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, the show stars Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, and Elise Eberle. We have an exclusive first look at Shane West, who plays John Alden, a “hardened war veteran” and onetime love interest of Montgomery’s Mary Sibley, the town’s “powerful enchantress.”

And below, we have another first look with Ashley Madekwe, who stars as the powerful witch’s accomplice:

'Castle' sneak peek: Dad issues -- EXCLUSIVE

There’s something strange afoot on Monday’s Castle — and it involves Castle’s father!

In this exclusive sneak peek from next week’s new episode, we see the return of James Brolin as spy daddy, who you’ll recall made a swift exit at the end of last season’s “Hunt.”

But this reappearance is anything but straightforward. In fact, the clip below will show you that he’s far from eager to make his real identity known: READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy talks Stevie Nicks' debut on 'Coven' and which witches are actually dead -- EXCLUSIVE


The “White Witch” finally made her much-anticipated debut last night on American Horror Story: Coven. Yes, the one and only Stevie Nicks popped up as a pal of Fiona’s and gave the Miss Robichaux ladies a little private concert. Elsewhere, Nan, Joan and (maybe?) Misty perished. Plus, Marie did an awesome thing her tongue. EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about all this and more, like which witches are gone for good.
