Death Watch 2011: Fall TV Survival Status Week 5

UPDATED: So far, so predictable: All the shows that have been pink-slipped were pretty much expected. (Across the nation, scores of TV critics are crowing “we told you so!”) Now comes the really tough decisions: Some new (and old) shows are still posting ratings south of a 2.0 rating (here’s looking at you, Prime Suspect), but at what point does a network start to hit bone when it makes so many painful cuts?

Let’s look at the latest, season-to-date averages in adults 18-49, the demographic of most concern to advertisers. (Note: We’ve included the averages for the shows that have already earned full-season orders. Yeah, we’re scratching our heads at some of those CW pickups, too). READ FULL STORY

'Glee' scoop: Chord Overstreet in negotiations to return

Fox

Chord Overstreet’s character Sam has been MIA from this season of Glee so far, but there’s a good chance that will change in the coming months: EW has confirmed that Overstreet is in negotiations to return as Sam, a.k.a. “Trouty Mouth,” later this year on the Fox hit. (TV Line first reported the news.)

The hope would be for him to do a handful of episodes and then potentially recur. Sam’s departure was explained in the season three premiere by his father getting a job in another town. But the big question is what this will mean for Amber Riley’s Mercedes, who began dating Sam in the season 2 finale but now has a new boyfriend. Meanwhile, a rep for studio 20th Century Fox would not confirm the news.

How a 'House' call put Charlyne Yi's soul-seeking plans on hold

Not long before she was scheduled to get on a plane to Sri Lanka, a call from House executive producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs put Charlyene Yi’s plans to visit orphanages on hold. The irony has not escaped her.

“I was like ‘I don’t know if I should take this job because I was soul-seeking and trying to do something meaningful,'” she said. “But I realized I’d be broke if I left and went for that Sri Lanka trip. And I thought if I took this job — aside from being interesting and an awesome opportunity — I could use that money I got pretending to help people and help people in real life. I thought that’d be really fun.” READ FULL STORY

Sneak peek at 'Six Days To Air: The Making Of South Park' documentary -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When EW recently spoke with Trey Parker and Matt Stone about the new documentary Six Days To Air: The Making Of South Park, the pair promised that the film would be a relatively sober affair. “It’s about the making of the show,” said Stone. “It’s not a documentary that’s going to be like, ‘Oh my god, here’s Matt taking a p—.’”

'Suburgatory': Watch the new opening credits -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Opening credits are an unfortunately dying practice in the world of television, so I’m glad that one of my favorite new shows of the season, Suburgatory, had made the effort to whip some together, even if they’re only 10 seconds. In the new credits, airing tonight, we get to see quick flashes of Tessa and George’s life in New York City — and, most importantly, Jeremy Sisto in a “Kiss the cook” apron.

'2 Broke Girls' picked up for full season

Expected, yet still welcome news: CBS’ 2 Broke Girls is getting some job security, landing a full-season order.

The Monday night comedy has been flying high as part of the network’s comedy block. The most recent episode averaged 11.5 million viewers and a 4.5 adult demo rating, matching its How I Met Your Mother lead-in. New comedies this fall so far are definitely getting the network love over dramas, with Fox picking up New Girl and NBC ordering more Whitney and Up All Night. No freshman drama, however, has yet to receive a full season.

'American Horror Story': Watch a clip from the scary series premiere! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

EW already gave you a glimpse of the horrifying basement featured in the opening credits for FX’s American Horror Story, premiering Oct. 5 at 10 p.m. Now, we’re taking you back downstairs for this exclusive clip from the premiere. The show is centered on the Harmon family — Ben (Dylan McDermott), Vivian (Connie Britton), and Violet (Taissa Farmiga) — who move to from Boston to Los Angeles and buy a house whose former inhabitants have died.

In this scene, Violet and Tate (Evan Peters), a troubled teen being treated by psychiatrist Ben, lure an unsuspecting mean girl to the Harmon’s basement in order to scare her. But what happens next is scarier than Violet ever could have imagined. Watch it below:  READ FULL STORY

Michael Emerson to former 'Lost' co-star Terry O'Quinn: I won't quit you, either!

Our ongoing lobbying coverage of a potential John Locke/Benjamin Linus TV reunion continues! Last week, Terry O’Quinn (now guest-starring on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 with ex-Oceanic 815er Daniel Dae Kim) told EW he still wants to work with fellow Lost co-star Michael Emerson (now on CBS’ Person of Interest), even though plans for a J.J. Abrams-produced action-drama vehicle fell apart earlier this year. Said O’Quinn: “I was actually looking to do a series after Lost. … Michael and I fiddled around with one and we sort of got through the process of generating some interest in it, and we just didn’t come up with a script that everyone agreed on. Michael and I stay in touch; we still talk about that. Maybe we’ll make it happen before we get too creaky. I would love to have at least one more good experience like Lost.”

“I feel very much the same way,” Emerson tells EW.com. “I was very gratified to read that in the press. We’ve both told each other that even though there may be some bumps along the road, sooner or later, we’re going to work together.” For fans of Emerson’s new show with Jim Caviezel (and there could be a lot of them: Person of Interest launched last week to 13.2 million viewers), the actor has some scoop about tonight’s episode (airing at 9/8 c): READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' gets full season order

Looks like it’s not so bad being the new girl.

Fox just announced it has ordered an additional 11 episodes of its freshman comedy, New Girl, bringing the full order to 24 episodes.

The Zooey Deschanel show, which premiered last week and was Fox’s highest-rated sitcom debut ever, held up this week in the ratings, retaining 92 percent of its premiere audience. It also earned an impressive 5.2 rating in the all-important 18-34 demographic.

'American Horror Story': Watch the terrifying opening credits sequence -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

FX’s new series American Horror Story is without a doubt one of the scariest things ever produced for television. Usually you have to hit up a multiplex for the kind of jolts delivered by this thriller, but creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (Glee) have crafted a small-screen roller coaster ride. The series follows the Harmon Family — husband Ben (Dylan McDermott), wife Vivian (Connie Britton), daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) — as they move into an old Los Angeles home with a dark history. For example, the home’s basement not only is in need of dusting but also might be the resting place of a serious evil creature, seen in the Oct. 5 premiere. And then there’s the man in the rubber fetish suit…

Even scarier than all this? AHS’s opening credits sequence, which EW is exclusively premiering today. READ FULL STORY

'Playboy Club' star Sean Maher opens up about his sexuality: 'This is my coming out ball'

Sean-Maher

Firefly alum and Playboy Club actor Sean Maher has worked steadily in Hollywood for 14 years, and during that time, he made the choice to be closeted about his personal life as a gay man — until now.

For the first time, Maher opens up about his sexuality in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I was nervous coming here today because I’ve just never talked about it,” Maher says, while sitting down to chat at Little Dom’s Italian bistro in Los Angeles’ trendy Los Feliz neighborhood, the area where the actor lives with Paul, his partner of nearly nine years, and their two children, Sophia Rose, 4, and Liam Xavier, 14 months. “But, it’s so liberating. It was interesting to be coming to have a conversation that I was always afraid to have.” Despite his trepidation, he adds with a big smile: “This is my coming out ball. I’ve been dying to do this.”
