'Glee': Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Imagine Dragons covers among season 4 music

Gleeks have to wait another eight days to see Glee‘s season 4 premiere, but Wednesday fans were treated to a taste of the music that the New Directions will be serenading us with this year. Wednesday evening, the Glee Facebook page featured a streaming presentation with five songs from the first two episodes of the season, all introduced by Darren Criss (Blaine) and Kevin McHale (Artie). No peeks at footage of the dance numbers for these songs, but the music was backed by stills from the new season.

EW tuned in to the stream, so if you missed it, we have the details on the music coming to the Fox musical show in the coming two weeks: READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Watch more of Kate Hudson as Rachel's mean dance teacher

Rachel Berry, you’re not in Ohio anymore.

On the upcoming season of Glee, the one-time star of the New Directions is in for a rude awakening when she gets started at NYADA in New York. In a recently released season 4 promo for the Fox musical show, fans got a brief taste of Kate Hudson’s no-nonsense, say-it-like it is dance teacher. Now a full clip from Rachel’s Dance 101 class has hit the web. Bonus: An intro with Cory Monteith, plus Ike Barinholtz of new Fox show The Mindy Project. Check it out below.

Zach Gilford talks morality and the mafia in 'The Mob Doctor' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

The Hippocratic Oath and mob ties don’t seem like they’d make for a good mix, and that’s exactly where Fox’s upcoming series The Mob Doctor derives its drama. In the upcoming Sopranos-meets-ER drama, Chicago thoracic surgeon Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro) is forced to use her unique skill set to pay off her brother’s debt to a local crime boss (William Forsythe). Without spoiling too much, it’s safe to say there will be screwdrivers lodged in heads and infirmed horse races involved. And those are just Grace’s nights! During her day job, Grace works alongside her blueblooded boyfriend Brett Robinson, played by Zach Gilford. The Friday Night Lights alum talked exclusive to EW about what to expect when the mafia infiltrates the O.R. READ FULL STORY

Ryan Murphy tweets new 'Glee' posters -- but where's Quinn?

Another day, another Gleeful bit of scoop from Ryan Murphy’s Twitter. The busiest man in show business has whetted fan appetites with a pair of new posters for his musical dramedy’s fourth season.

The first evokes Glee posters of old and focuses on Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), who’s due to discover that NYADA can be just as icy as the halls of McKinley High. Only this time, the frost isn’t coming from mean-girl cheerleaders — but from her very own dance teacher.

The second is a group shot that features both new and returning cast members, with one glaring exception: Dianna Agron’s Quinn is nowhere to be found. And while the poster includes pointed signs for the various cities where McKinley’s alumni are now living — New York, Los Angeles, Lima, St. Louis — there’s no arrow reading “New Haven,” where Quinn is attending college. Does this mean the former Cheerio captain is off the show for good?

Not so fast, says Murphy: “Gleeks, please relax,” he tweeted shortly after releasing the second poster. “Dianna is still on the show. We love her and have great plans for Quinn. #QuinnFabrayLives.” Unless she keeps texting and driving, of course.

Check out large versions of both posters below.

'Revenge' season 2 promo: Emily under pressure (and underwater!)

In season 1 of Revenge, we learned that Emily Thorne performs well under pressure. But I’m incredibly curious to see her Houdini her way out of the dangerous situation previewed in the promo for the show’s second season.

The video (see it below!) doesn’t give much context, but what we do see is Emily (Emily VanCamp) struggling to free herself before drowning in the ocean.

Here’s hoping Takeda included some water training in his Ass-Kicker lessons, or that mom Jennifer Jason Leigh has fins. (Better yet! Maybe Ryan Lochte can swim over from 90210 to help.)

Find out how it all pans out when the show returns Sept. 30.

New 'Glee' promo: See Kate Hudson's nasty dance teacher in action

This September, school is back in session — even though the class of 2012 has moved on. (Well, mostly.)

Fox just released a new trailer for Glee‘s fourth season — and while it’s only a scant 31 seconds long, it holds plenty of hints for what’s in store for McKinley’s finest. A newly transported Rachel is doing her best to succeed at NYADA, despite snide comments from mean dance teacher Cassandra July (Kate Hudson); Sue has apparently given birth, or is at least holding someone else’s baby; and Brittany is being Brittany, mistaking a New Directions member for… well, we won’t ruin the joke. For all this, plus a snippet of Darren Criss’s rendition of “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons, watch the full clip for yourself:

Carly Rae Jepsen to guest star on '90210'

CARLY-RAE-JEPSEN

We’ve been hearing Carly Rae Jepsen sing “This is crazy / But here’s my number” seemingly everywhere for months, but now we finally have some digits for her – well, a zip code at least. The “Call Me Maybe” singer will make an appearance on the season 5 premiere of The CW’s 90210. CBS Television Studios, which produces the show, announced the news today.

Jepsen will perform a song from her upcoming album and will play herself as the headliner for Adrianna’s Las Vegas show.

“We fell in love with ['Call Me Maybe'] when we first heard it and used it in last season’s finale before it was a national sensation,” 90210 executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen said in a statement. “We think she’s an exciting artist and are thrilled to be able to have her music on the show again, this time in a live performance in our season premiere.”

The episode will air Monday, Oct. 8.

'Arrow' promo: Meet the human weapon -- VIDEO

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) went to an island. Oliver Queen stayed on that island. Who emerged instead? His lethal archer alter ego, Arrow. In a new, extended trailer for The CW’s forthcoming Arrow, the hero grapples with his changed inner self that’s unknown to those around him. He also kicks a lot of butt and shoots the bounce right out of some tennis balls. Watch Oliver become a “human weapon” below. READ FULL STORY

'A Gifted Man,' 'Rob' canceled; Patrick Wilson 'couldn't be happier'

gfitedman-320.jpg

A Gifted Man is going to the TV afterlife.

The CBS medical drama, Rob Schneider’s sitcom Rob and crime procedurals NYC-22 and Unforgettable were also cancelled. “So…shocking to no one: A Gifted Man is done,” star Patrick Wilson tweeted. “Found out via email … and not from the network. Stay classy. Thanks to AGM fans! Great cast/crew … Thanks for the AGM love…but now that it’s ‘official,’ I couldn’t be happier. As good as it was (sometimes) it was not what I signed on for.”

Gifted Man wasn’t terribly rated by some Friday show standards (ahem, Fringe), but with with 8.6 million viewers and, more importantly, a 1.4 adult demo rating, it was low-rated by CBS standards. Unforgettable was far from a sure bet for cancellation with its hearty 12.1 million viewers and a 2.5 average. READ FULL STORY

Sarah Chalke books ABC comedy pilot

Will 2012 finally be the year that Sarah Chalke headlines her own successful TV show?

ABC is going to try to make it happen for fall: The network has cast the Scrubs vet in How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life, a comedy pilot from Claudia Lonow (Friends with Benefits). Chalke will play Polly, a recently divorced single mom moves in with her eccentric parents, Elaine and Max, a couple who are full of life but know no boundaries.

In 2010, Chalke headlined the short-lived CBS comedy Mad Love. She also memorably recurred on How I Met Your Mother as Stella while starring on Scrubs, the Bill Lawrence comedy that wrapped two years ago.

ABC tried to find a comedy for Chalke in 2010 by giving her the starring role in the ABC sitcom pilot Freshman, which never saw the light of day.

ABC fall development 2012: Out to please soap fans?

Like Revenge on ABC? Well you may get a lot more of it.

The lion’s share of the net’s drama pilots in development for fall offer sudsy tales in the vein of the Hamptons-based drama that’s currently tearing up the screen on Wednesdays. (To wit: The drama, which is averaging 8.7 million viewers, leads its hour against old dramas on CBS and NBC among adults 18-34 and key female demos. It’s also the net’s most-watched series in the hour in more than four years, since Lost in 2006-07).

Female-skewing serials fit in best for the home of Grey’s Anatomy and the outgoing Desperate Housewives, so ABC appears to be staying in its wheelhouse with adaptations of the tomes Scruples and 666 Park Avenue and another (with any luck, sexy) update of Beauty and the Beast.

Since no network dares to go into a new season without a legal angle or two, law-dog guru Shawn Ryan (The Shield) has also worked up an action thriller for the Alphabet Network. But even his project promises a serialized (and potentially soapy) take on the formation of a new nuclear nation that threatens our great god-fearing country.

Comedies? Well, the newest crop is a huge (see: smarter) departure from the dreck of 2011-12. Throwaways like Man Up! and Work It have been replaced with British adaptations and the much-needed return of funnywoman Judy Greer. (Remember her in Miss Guided?)

Save for a few more comedies, ABC has just about wrapped up their pilot ordering season. Next step: Make them, screen them, and decide whether they’re good enough to earn a series order for fall.  Here’s what they’ve drummed up. READ FULL STORY
