To help celebrate General Hospital’s 50th anniversary on April 1, EW obtained an exclusive look at the very first scenes from the long-running ABC sudser — which, naturally, begins with images of busy nurses (and a fairly ominous soundtrack). Brace yourself for the Twilight Zone feel of the original black and white episode, and see if you recognize anyone! READ FULL STORY

William Petersen remains one of the more sought-after actors to headline a TV show but the former star of CSI isn’t ready to come back to broadcast TV … yet. Instead, he’s set to appear Friday opposite Julia Stiles in Blue, a web series in its second season from Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment) about a single mom who’s trying to protect her son from the consequences of her secret career as an upscale escort. Petersen, who splits his time between Los Angeles and Chicago, plays Blue’s (Stiles) father, who has been in jail for the majority of her life and is serving a life sentence.
“Rodrigo just asked,” Petersen tells EW of the one-day shoot in Culver City, CA. “It was kind of cool, this two-person scene. I mean, there’s no money. But it’s sort of old school filmmaking. It was bare bones, a couple of walls. A piece of glass.”
Here’s an exclusive peek at Blue, which can be found on You Tube’s WIGS channel. The current season of Blue ends April 5 and also stars Mark Consuelos, Holly Robinson Peete and Kathleen Quinlan. READ FULL STORY

Morena Baccarin is getting really good at playing a wife who’s afraid of her husband.
In Sunday’s episode of The Good Wife, the Homeland actress plays the new bride of Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker), a recurring character who may (or may not) have killed his first wife.
Also in the episode: Diane proposes marriage! Here’s a sneak peek of the promo.
UPDATE: Jeanne Cooper, the longtime star of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, died on May 8, 2013, at the age of 84. In March 2013, EW talked with the actress about the series’ 40th anniversary and asked her to select some of her favorite episodes, linked below.
ORIGINAL POST: “(My agent) said ‘I know you. You won’t like doing it. Even with the stage you don’t like doing it for six months. You will get very bored playing the same person.’ I said you’re right, so I just kept hiding on island after island in Hawaii. Finally (Producer) John Conboy said, we have to have her. I caught a red-eye out for the table read. William Gray Espy, the young lead who played Snapper, warned everybody that I was a tough lady who doesn’t put up with a lot of nonsense. I was going to give it my all for three years but all of a sudden, when you are creating another person who grows with you, Katherine grew with me. I grew with her. It was fascinating. Then, of course, I got a divorce and couldn’t afford to be too terribly hard ass about what I was and wasn’t going to do. You have to admit, to have a paycheck coming in weekly for 40 years is pretty great. I did not join this show when I was 21. I was 45. Everybody was shocked I would do this and stay with it. [Co-creator] Bill Bell gave me carte blanche to do what I wanted. READ FULL STORY
In hopes to gin up excitement for new coaches Usher and Shakira, NBC screened the first two hours of The Voice today for journalists before the fourth season premieres on March 25. As expected, the show was quick to trumpet the talents of his newest additions– they’re multiple Grammy winners and international icons, y’all! – but the real test came when they had to sit down next to veteran show stealers Blake Shelton (who’s as charismatic as ever) and Adam Levine (who’s as picky as ever).
Favorable editing aside, the newbies have (so far) lived up to the build-up. Usher displayed the right amount of confidence (“This is the show I wanted to be associated with because it has credibility,” he said, in a not-so subtle slight to American Idol) but also showed an amusing amount of humility — especially when he’s called out for referring to Nashville as a “state.” (D’oh!) Shakira, meanwhile, is less like a diva and more of a delight — her precious accent making her all the more winsome, especially when she starts to talk trash by calling Levine’s season one win “beginner’s luck.” It can’t be easy to dodge playful barbs from Shelton and Levine — comic moments come easy for those two now — but in all, Usher and Shakira appear to have settled in quite nicely and are pretty slick at selling themselves as coaches. (Kudos to Usher for playing the Justin Bieber card when trying to lure a teen to his team). The new players make good band mates, too: The premiere’s opening musical segment features Levine on drums, Shelton and Usher on guitars and Shakira on harmonica. Sounds odd, I know, but the combination rocked. READ FULL STORY
It seems like 150 years since we last had the opportunity to watch a new episode of Doctor Who — and in a sense that’s how long it has been given the most recent show to feature Matt Smith’s Time Lord was the Victorian-era set special Christmas episode, “The Snowmen.”
But on March 30 at 8 p.m. ET, Doctor Who will finally return to BBC America and kick off the show’s 50th year with a run of eight shows. In next week’s Entertainment Weekly, we will be marking the start of the second half of the current season — and its big birthday — with a Doctor Who cover story. But right now you can further whet your Who-petite, by exclusively checking out the trailer for the new eight shows. Take a look below and tell us what you think… READ FULL STORY

On Friday’s episode of Shark Tank on ABC, a budding entrepreneur with a gnarly twang pitches an unattractive women’s shoe that features a changeable sole — all for the not-so-reasonable price of $200. “Push, slide and snap!” Jessica promises, “it’s that easy.”
But is it that profitable? Decide for yourself:
