For its second season, NBC’s Smash is undergoing a reboot that includes more musicals and bigger star power, like Entertainment Weekly cover girl Jennifer Hudson and music icon Liza Minnelli. EW has the exclusive first images of Minnelli, who plays herself in episode 10 of the musical drama. The actress even gets to sing an original song, written by Smash producers Marc Shaiman and Scott Whittman, alongside star Christian Borle, who plays Tom. “This [Broadway] community is so small that a Tom would know Liza Minnelli personally,” says NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt. “It’s an episode where Tom is trying to make it up to Ivy (Megan Hilty) because they’ve had a bit of a falling out. He takes her to a restaurant because it’s her birthday and as a peace-offering, he presents Liza Minnelli to sing a song that he wrote. And Christian and Liza sing it together.” Check out another image of Minnelli below. READ FULL STORY
Tag: First Look (118-130 of 460)
On Jan. 8 at 10 p.m. ET, Discovery premieres the first installment of Africa, a seven-part coproduction with the BBC from the documentary team behind Life narrated by Forest Whitaker. Below is a first look at what’s been described as “the most violent giraffe fight ever filmed,” featured in that first hour, “Kalahari.” It took the crew four weeks to capture the 90-second desert knockout in which two giraffes use their six-foot long necks as weapons and exchange blows. It was the only giraffe fight they saw the month they were there. You’ve got to see it to believe it. This clip is just a tease. READ FULL STORY
History scored earlier this year with a dramatic, mini-series retelling of the legendary drama between the dueling Hatfield and McCoy clans, and the cable network is once again dipping back into legend again with a new series Vikings, which will debut early next year. Following our first-look photo, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at the series — starring Gabriel Byrne, Travis Fimmel, Jessalyn Gilsig, Gustaf Skarsgard (yes, brother of Alexander and son of Stellan), Clive Standen, and Katheryn Winnick — via the debut trailer.
The 30-second promotional clip is a smorgasbord of beards, long hair, shields, weapons, and general savagery that — depending on how it all pans out in series format — looks like it could be quite the juicy, battle-filled dive into a long-gone world. In previous press releases, History calls the series — which is created and written by The Tudors creator Michael Hirst — “high on adventure, exploration, conflict, warfare, and bloodshed,” as well as a “family saga.” Specifically, the actions follows historical figure Ragnar Lothbrok (Fimmel) as he rises up the ranks to become King of the Viking tribes.
Promises the trailer: “A storm is coming.” Indeed. See for yourself here:
Is this what the Confederacy meant when it said the south will rise again?
The record-breaking successes of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — both of which trade on regional stereotypes to varying degrees — has paved the way for at least two more reality shows that aim to shed more light on the beasts of the Southern wild: Welcome to Myrtle Manor (early 2013), which chronicles life in a South Carolina trailer park, and Gypsy Sisters (Feb. 10), which takes a deeper look at the American gypsy subculture by exploring the lives of a family based in West Virginia. Both will air on TLC. READ FULL STORY
Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker bro down on the cover of 'The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine' issue #3 -- EXCLUSIVE
The recent midseason finale of The Walking Dead finally saw Daryl and Merle Dixon reunited shortly before the closing credits. It’s almost like the producers deliberately left fans wanting more!!! (Of course, as Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman told yours truly, that was indeed their dastardly plan all along).
Did you honestly believe that Big Brother’s Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas wouldn’t make a reality show out of their reality show romance?
We didn’t either.
That doesn’t mean we want to avoid this train wreck of a broadcast. For the Dec. 15 season finale of WE’s My Fair Wedding with (the unbelievably ripped) David Tutera, Brenchel — who also ran the 20th season of The Amazing Race together — reminds us that even a couple of hot messes can make for great TV.

First, a show of hands: Who won’t miss the way-too-compact Newman ranch?
We certainly won’t, which is why Victor Newman’s new penthouse is a welcome step in the right direction for Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps, as she continues to put her stamp on CBS’ The Young and the Restless. EW obtained this exclusive sneak peek of Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) and Melody Thomas Scott (the beloved Nikki, who continues to suffer from selective amnesia when it comes to the father of her children) as they first set eyes on their cosmopolitan new “home.”
Fans will see the set for the first time this Wednesday. If only Miguel was there to give them a tour. READ FULL STORY
Dylan McDermott’s return to American Horror Story, after appearing in season 1 as the haunted Dr. Ben Harmon, has been highly secretive… that is until Nov. 21′s Asylum episode, “The Origins of Monstrosity.” During the present-day story line, viewers heard modern-day Bloody Face call the police and taunt them and the voice definitely sounded like McDermott’s.
Then, this week, Ryan Murphy confirmed to EW what fans had theorized: “Yes. Dylan is modern-day Bloody Face. So the question is, Why is he the modern-day Bloody Face? What is he doing? And that’s revealed in episode 9.” Now, McDermott has posted a photo of himself as the villain on his WhoSay page, although sans his famous flesh mask.

Is a marriage proposal not real until Jack Donaghy knows? On the Nov. 29 episode of NBC’s 30 Rock, Liz (Tina Fey) lets her boss in on her big news — and Jack (Alec Baldwin) is positively un-Donaghy-ian in his reaction. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY
Look for not one, but two nights of models from Victoria’s Secret on CBS. In the Dec. 3 episode of Hawaii Five-0, lingerie model Behati Prinsloo will guest star alongside Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan. We’re guessing she won’t wear much.
Prinsloo will also appear in the network’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Dec. 4.
Here’s a sneak peek of the bathing beauty with the 5-0 boys: READ FULL STORY
In tonight’s episode of 90210, Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) opens for Ne-Yo — and then opens a very special box from Dixon (Tristan Wilds).
Is it some engagement bling? Our guess is no, because last we checked, Cartier wasn’t packaging its rings in boxes that size. But maybe he’s trying to fool his lady love?
