Despite heavy criticism about the gratuitous violence against women, Stalker actually fared okay in its series debut, but the same can’t be said for week two of what ABC’s been touting as the No. 1 new comedy, Black-ish.
Tag: Fall TV (40-52 of 382)
Though Kevin Williamson is the Scream King, the debut of his new series Stalker was more of a whimper. And I’m not just talking about the sounds coming from the victims of the show’s eponymous creeps.
There was something literally and viscerally bloodless about the premiere, which was touted by CBS as “the scariest drama to ever air” on TV and which I have to admit was one of my most anticipated series of the 2014–2015 season. The pilot didn’t have quite the lingering chill it could or should have… nor did it have the narrative fire its multiple gasoline-drenched set pieces hoped to convey. There is certainly plenty of unsettling material to mine, but Stalker has yet to come close to the pulse-pounding promise of its initial trailer.
For those who didn’t catch the premiere, here are the basics (along with some spoilers): READ FULL STORY
It’s the burning question of the fall season: Who is the actual murderer on ABC’s new hit drama How to Get Away with Murder?
On the season premiere, it was uncovered through flash-forwards that a group of students from Annalise Keating’s class attempted to cover up the murder of her husband, Sam (Tom Verica), who was killed with the coveted justice statue Annalise uses as an immunity idol in her class. Who’s the real killer?
“I love everyone creating their own theories,” executive producer Pete Nowalk tells EW. “Some of [the clues] we’ve planted intentionally, a lot of them are subtle Easter eggs of suspicion for the audience, and some of them we didn’t plant and people are still seeing them. I’m hoping people really get into the details and subtleties of the show, and they might even want to watch certain episodes twice or watch those flash-forwards again because they’re all very specific and detailed and full of little clues.”
With the clues provided from the series premiere, we’ve listed 10 suspects—though, to be fair, there’s no guarantee that any or all of them are actually the murderer. Below, we weigh the odds on the suspects and Nowalk offers up juicy teases on what’s next:
Just in time for Halloween, NBC is about to get a little bit spookier thanks to its new supernatural series, Constantine.

Upon discovering Anna’s (Elizabeth Lail) necklace in Mr. Gold’s (Robert Carlyle) pawnshop during the Once Upon a Time premiere, Elsa (Georgina Haig) will lock down the town of Storybrooke in a bid to find her sister.

If Grey’s Anatomy fans expected a warm sisterly embrace between Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Maggie (Kelly McCreary) when the ABC medical drama returned for season 11, they were sorely mistaken. Instead, the unaware Meredith butted heads with the new head of cardio, ultimately leading to a nasty confrontation that will undoubtedly color Meredith’s reaction when she eventually finds out the truth that Maggie is her half-sister.
“It’s going to get worse before it gets better,” McCreary tells EW. “Maggie’s a professional, but they push each other’s buttons professionally. They have different approaches on how to do things. Try as Maggie might, she can’t release her stubbornness or other vices, like her tenaciousness, when it comes to working with Meredith.”
