Jonathan Penner and Jeff Probst have a habit of mixing it up. Turns out the player doesn’t like getting sassed by the host and usually has a biting reply on the tip of his tongue. So perhaps it is no surprise to learn that it takes but a few seconds for them to go at it again at the start of Survivor: Philippines (which debuts Sept. 19 on CBS). In the video below (shot on location in the Caramoan Islands), Probst gives the lowdown on what happened when he tried to give Penner an ultimatum at the outset of the game. Penner’s response is…well, pure Penner. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Philippines': Jeff Probst says bringing Jonathan Penner back is NOT a cheat -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
The theme tying together the players brought back to compete again for Survivor: Philippines is that they were all medically evacuated so never got a chance to see how they would have fared had their bodies not betrayed them. That certainly makes sense with Mike Skupin (who fell in the fire in Survivor: The Australian Outback) and Russell Swan (who passed out due to dehydration in Survivor: Samoa). But what about the third player, Jonathan Penner? While he was forced to leave Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs Favorites due to an infected knee, that was his second time playing. He faced no such medical complications in his first time out, coming in 7th place in Survivor: Cook Islands. So is including Penner here as someone who didn’t get to play a complete game a bit of a cheat? READ FULL STORY
'The Walking Dead': Andrew Lincoln on not making eye contact with costar Sarah Wayne Callies in season 3 -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
While most of the attention from the season 2 Walking Dead finale centered on the fact that zombies infiltrated the farm and started biting any of Hershel’s relatives they could get their disgusting jaws on, another quieter event took place that will also set off serious ramifications when the AMC drama picks back up in season 3 on Oct. 14. After Rick told Lori about how he killed her former lover and his best friend Shane, she recoiled in seeming disgust.
And now it appears that time — the show picks up several months later — has not healed all wounds. “I’m not saying that it’s irrevocable, their relationship, but it’s pretty close to that,” Andrew Lincoln told us while taking a break from shooting one of four Entertainment Weekly Walking Dead covers. “Every time they see one another, they’re reminded of the shame.” Lincoln goes on to explain that the disgust ran so deep that he couldn’t even look at Sarah Wayne Callies. “We made a choice as actors, certainly for the first few episodes, not to make eye contact. It was an interesting choice because every time that we looked at each other, it burned.” READ FULL STORY
The Governor speaks! David Morrissey on how his 'Walking Dead' character differs from the comic book version -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
A lot of people were thrown when the suave David Morrissey was cast to play one of the most evil and barbaric characters in comic book culture in the Governor. (Much like the way people were thrown when “that British guy from Love Actually” was cast to play steely sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes). But after going and seeing Morrissey in character on set, it was clear to me that when season 3 of The Walking Dead picks up on AMC Oct. 14, the Governor we meet will be a different beast from the one we were introduced to in the comic book — at least at first. Morrissey’s Governor is a much more political animal with a messiah complex — one whose evil lurks behind a shiny exterior.
Morrissey took a few minutes out from fondling a big knife for one of our four new Walking Dead Entertainment Weekly covers to offer some insight as to how the TV Governor differs from the comic version. “We probably meet the Governor earlier in his journey,” says Morrissey “I think he has more complexity than in the comic book.” So instead of coming across a complete lunatic, as in the comic, expect to see the seeds of lunacy being planted right before our eyes: “The things that make him the way he is happen to him on screen. We see them happening.” READ FULL STORY
One of the great joys of Grey’s Anatomy‘s last season was watching the relationship between Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) develop further, as the doctors worked together on the smallest patients inside Seattle Grace Mercy West’s neo-natal unit. The special kinship between the pair is on display in the upcoming, Sept. 4 DVD release of Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season in a fun little deleted scene that EW has here for you exclusively.
The never-before-seen scene comes from the January episode “Suddenly” and finds Karev and Robbins performing surgery on one of the hospital’s newborns. “Huh,” Karev says unceremoniously, in the middle of operating. And that’s what Robbins takes issue with: “‘Huh’? You don’t ‘Huh’? when you have an open newborn baby on the table,” the motherly/teacherly doctors scolds Karev. “You know what? I’m taking over.” Karev continues his mumbling, and that’s where the funny comes in between this pair: “Hey! Use your words, Karev!” Robbins implores him. “Or you’re not making another cut.”

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker discuss the upcoming Daryl and Merle Dixon reunion -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
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?
