Do you have a fixin’ for the Dixons? It seems to be only a matter of time before Daryl is reunited with his racist redneck brother Merle on The Walking Dead, especially with Merle now surfacing in season 3 alongside the Governor in the town of Woodbury. But we’re super impatient and couldn’t wait for that to happen, so we brought the two people who play them, Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, together for one of our four Walking Dead season 3 sneak peek covers.

'Push Girls' season 1 finale sneak peek: What does it take for Angela to get on a plane? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
There’s nary an episode of Sundance’s Push Girls where the viewers don’t learn something about living life as a quadriplegic or paraplegic. In the show’s first season finale — airing tonight at 10 p.m. on Sundance Channel — one of the lessons is about the hardships surrounding how Angela Rockwood, who is a quadriplegic, gets onto an airplane. If you can imagine, the process is quite an orchestration, and EW has an exclusive clip below that details it all.
“Just going away for three days, one suitcase is full of medical supplies,” Angela tells viewers in the clip of Push Girls, which was recently renewed for a second season. “Getting in the plane is always super nerve-wracking for me.” Angela has to arrive at the airport extremely early and be the first one put on the plane, and she can only sit in an aisle seat.
The hour-long episode also details Auti Angel’s pursuits surrounding her acting in an independent film and the coming premiere, as well as following Angela as she goes to New York with boyfriend Cody for a fashion shoot, hence the airplane drama. Watch the exclusive clip from Sundance Channel’s Push Girls here:
'The Walking Dead': Danai Gurira (a.k.a. Michonne) explains her armless, jawless zombie 'Pets' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
The season 2 finale of The Walking Dead featured the arresting image of a hooded, katana sword-wielding figure carrying around two zombies in chains. That walking warrior was none other than Michonne, one of the most popular characters from the comic book on which the AMC drama is based. Now the woman who plays Michonne, Danai Gurira, gives some insight into those armless, jawless zombies known as “Pets,” which we will see much more of when season 3 premieres on Oct. 14.
Gurira took a minute out from posing as a badass for one of our four new Walking Dead Entertainment Weekly covers to discuss where the Pets come from (“They are connected to Michonne’s past,” she says—but will it be the same past as the comic?), as well as why she keeps them chained by her side (“She’s realized she’s the higher life form. So how do you make the lower life form work for you?”).
Check out more fresh intel on Michonne’s zombie Pets — as well as footage from our photo shoot — in the video player below. And you can buy the Michonne EW cover (or all four Walking Dead covers in a special bundle pack) right here.
From what we’ve seen in the first few episode of this season, we know Hank (Russell Hornsby) is having a rough time dealing with his nightmares and paranoia. And in the upcoming third episode of the brand new — and so far awesome — season of Grimm, Nick’s partner finally comes clean about his struggles.
The big question: Will Hank’s confession move Nick to admitting the truth about the world they live? Tell us what you think after watching this exclusive clip from the next new episode!

Can there ever be too much Judith Light on television? In a word: no. Which is why it’s good that the Who’s the Boss? legend is returning to her guesting gig on TV Land’s sitcom The Exes, where she plays the over-bearing mother to Kristen Johnston’s divorce lawyer character Holly Brooks. EW has an exclusive clip of Light’s reappearance on The Exes in tomorrow night’s new episode, titled “Sister Act,” which also stars Amanda Detmer as Light’s other, more beloved, perfect daughter Jill.
Just like last time, the appearance of Light’s motherly character ruffles Holly’s feathers, largely because she’s so often pushed to the side in favor of her perfect — and married — sister. The full episode apparently finds Holly inventing an alternative lifestyle for herself that spirals out of control (to impress Mommy Dearest maybe?), but until it airs Wednesday evening at 10:30 p.m., whet your appetite with a preview clip of Light’s return — and the fireworks it causes — here:
'Survivor: Philippines': Michael Skupin, Jonathan Penner and Russell Swan return, and talk about it here -- EXCLUSIVE
The 15 new players — including Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel and former National League baseball MVP Jeff Kent — competing this fall on Survivor: Philippines were announced on Monday. And now we can reveal the three previously medically evacuated players that are returning to play alongside them: Michael Skupin, Jonathan Penner, and Russell Swan — each of whom was evacuated in episode 6 of his season.
Skupin was the star of one of the grisliest scenes in reality TV history when he fell into his tribe’s fire on Survivor: The Australian Outback in 2001. The image of Skupin’s skin melting off his hands is about as gnarly as it gets, yet it took 11 years for him to be invited back onto the show. “For 22 seasons, I’ve thought about playing this game again,” the 50-year-old Skupin told EW.com while on location in the Caramoan Islands the day before filming commenced, but he is not looking at this outing as a shot at redemption. “I’m not here because I fell in the fire or to prove to the world anything,” he says. “I’m here to play the game again, from start to finish. This will be a whole new adventure for me.” READ FULL STORY »
'The Walking Dead': New time-lapse video shows how to make a zombie in under 90 seconds -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
From my time as an extra, I am all too familiar with the process of being turned into a zombie for AMC’s The Walking Dead. It basically involves sitting still for 90 minutes while people slap prosthetics and blood all over your face, and then blind you by sticking demon contact lenses into your eyes. But if you want to see for yourself just what it’s like, then we have a special treat for you — a time-lapse video showing the entire process of a lovely lady being transformed into a flesh-eating ghoul right before our very eyes. And why would she subject herself to such a process? To be part of Entertainment Weekly’s Walking Dead cover shoot!
That’s right, while there may not be a new EW on stands this week due to last week’s Fall Movie Preview double issue, next week will bring a special first look cover at season 3 of The Walking Dead. What will the cover look like? Who will be on it? I can’t tell you! (Yet.) But we can show you monster makeup guru and Walking Dead exec producer Greg Nicotero (in the badass red Millennium Falcon t-shirt) and his team in action, and what it takes to turn a perfectly nice woman into a member of the undead. In this special time-lapse video below we show you the entire 90-minute process in under 90 seconds. See what it takes to become an Entertainment Weekly zombie, and then keep your eyes peeled for next week’s big Walking Dead cover. Or should I say…covers?

The Closermay be saying goodbye tonight — but thankfully most of the team isn’t.
In the show’s series finale, Kyra Sedgwick’s Lt. Brenda Leigh Johnson is reflecting on her life — personally and professionally — and on the verge of making a major decision. “We recognize the chief is — not unstable — but acting distracted and drifting away during conversation. She has a lot on her mind,” says Closer actor Tony Dennison, who plays Det. Flynn, a character who will cross over to the spin-off Major Crimes.
And Brenda’s emotional issues, one can assume, lead to her decision to relinquish her duties at the station. But there are no hard feelings, says Denison. “We understand why she has to go. It’s not like, ‘Can’t you stay?’” he says. “We send her off with love.”
Enter Major Crimes, a show that centers on Mary McDonnell’s Capt. Raydor and features most of the Merry Men Brenda leaves behind, to fill the void. “It’s like the band played on,” Denison says of the first episode.
That band, however, seems a little out of tune in the exclusive clip from the series finale below. In last week’s episode, the station’s internal leak was revealed to be Sgt. David Gabriel’s girlfriend, and immediately, trust issues began to arise. “My character is a little uneasy having Gabriel around there,” he shares. But can the team patch things up before their fearless leader takes her bow? Or will we enter Major Crimes with some major drama still afoot? Make your guesses below. And for more on Major Crimes, check out the second clip after this exclusive peek at The Closer‘s series finale.

Who better to host a new series titled Deadly Affairs than the queen of daytime Susan Lucci? No one, honestly. Come September, the former All My Children legend will lead the aptly-named new Investigation Discovery show that takes an inside look at dalliances gone wrong, everything from “love triangles that implode to office romances exposed,” says the network’s official description for the series. “They happen in real life and, sometimes, are stranger than fiction.” Lucci’s Erica Kane might take issue with that.
To give you a taste of what’s to come on the show, Investigation Discovery has produced a series of web shorts that will premiere this weekend on the network’s website and feature Lucci doling out cheeky advice about how to spot an affair. EW has an exclusive sneak peek at the first one, which focuses on grooming. “In marriage, there are always distractions,” Lucci says. “I know it’s shocking, but one in five spouses will cheat. Could you be headed toward a deadly affair?” Then comes the advice about how to spot an affair by renewed interest in grooming.
Catch Lucci in the series when it premieres Sept. 8 at 10 p.m., but for know watch a glimpse of her cheeky fun here:
'The Walking Dead': Deleted scene from original season 2 opening reveals abandoned storyline -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
It is well known that instead of starting with Rick talking into his walkie-talkie and then the group being pretty much already out of Atlanta, the original plan for The Walking Dead’s season 2 premiere was to pick up just seconds after the CDC was blown to bits in the season 1 finale. I was on set playing the part of a zombie for an intense sequence in which Shane’s car breaks down just a few blocks away from the explosion, leaving him isolated from the group and having to fight off and outrun an army of the undead before finally being rescued by the group in the RV. But what happened after that?
More of the story will be revealed when The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season DVD and Blu-ray sets are released on August 28. And you can get your first taste right here. In this exclusive clip following Shane’s rescue, we see the survivors trying to seek shelter with some familiar faces from season 1— Guillermo and the Vatos. But when Rick and Co. arrive back at the nursing home where Glenn was once held hostage, well…the people they find there are not people at all, setting off a frenzied attack. Click on the video player below to see for yourself. READ FULL STORY »
MTV has been red hot in the scripted arena, with buzzy entries such as Teen Wolf and Awkward. And the teen network isn’t just resting on those shows. Next up: The Inbetweeners, a story adapted from a popular British format that follows a group of middling teens in high school. EW has an exclusive first look at the series, via the first two minutes of the pilot, which can be viewed below.
To be more specific, The Inbetweeners chronicles the lives of those kids who aren’t on top or bottom of the social ladder — but the ones who are right in the middle and, yes, may even be more invisible than the lowly nerds. MTV describes the show as such: “The Inbetweeners takes a comedic look at a group of teenagers navigating high school and charging into adulthood the way everyone does…by taking one step forward and three steps back.”
If you’ve been watching the Olympics all weekend, then you probably already know that Grimm‘s season 2 premiere is just around the corner (Aug. 13). And if you take a look at the exclusive first promo below, you’ll see it’s likely going to be gold medal-worthy.
Season 2 of the supernatural drama will pick up right where the first season finale left off — with Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) having a lot of issues to contend with, not the least of which is coming face-to-face with his mother, who, as Monroe puts it, is supposed to be “not-so-alive.”
“I have a lot of enemies, Nick. It was safer for you if I was dead,” she tells him in the clip. (He’s less than willing to accept the excuse, it seems.)
More teases from the cast can be seen in the video below, so watch to learn how Nick’s main lady Juliette is doing after being scratched by a “monster cat,” how Nick’s partner Hank (Russell Hornsby) is dealing with paranoia after seeing his first creature last season, and to see what’s in store for “badass” Nick as he comes into his Grimm-ness.
