'Fringe': Science Channel to re-air all five seasons

Good news for all Observers! Starting next week, Science Channel will air three full hours of Fringe every Tuesday night. These nights of reruns will begin with a special message from John Noble, who plays brilliant mad scientist Walter Bishop; by 2013, the network will have re-aired the sci-fi series in its entirety.

The great Fringe rewatch begins Nov. 20 at 8 p.m., when the series’ two-hour pilot and first regular episode will play. Science will then air Fringe‘s full first season during daylong marathons on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24. Season 2 starts airing the following week. Even those with piles of Fringe DVDs may want to tune in: the Fringeblock’s commercial breaks will feature episodes of “Science of Fringe,” a short-form series in which real scientists will examine “phenomena such as time travel, dream sharing and parallel universes,” according to a release.

'Fringe' scoop: Singer/actress Jill Scott set to visit the Fox sci-fi saga as...

The future-flung heroes of Fringe, currently busy saving humanity from folically-challenged time travelers with noodle-baking psychic powers, are about to meet another kind of mentalist — and we’re not talking Patrick Jane or Sherlock Holmes. has learned that the producers of the soon-to-end Fox drama have cast singer-actress-poet Jill Scott in the role of Simone, described as “an incredibly intuitive woman, an oracle-like person.”

Look for Olivia (Anna Torv) to seek Simone’s assistance during an early season episode… in which the cortexiphan-juiced chosen one will eat a cookie and ponder that timeless truth: There is no spoon. (Oracle. Cookies. Spoon. It’s a Matrix joke, people! C’mon!) READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Fringe,' 'Supernatural,' 'Gossip Girl': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s October!! Holy muffins. How did that happen?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on my end. First, there was the Emmys, immediately followed by a series of set visits in Vancouver that sucked the life out of me in the best way possible. Now I’m back in New York, fall is in full swing, new shows are beginning to stick (and others, not so much), and hopefully we’re all enjoying having DVRs full of goodness. I know I am.

So let’s get to it. Remember to be sending me your scoop requests ( and follow me on Twitter for witty commentary and TV news. Also, if you’re emailing, take a second to tell me your favorite new show of the fall. This is an informal poll, but I’m really curious what scoop you might be craving in the near future. Time for some dish. Nom. Nom. Nom.

There’s no place as wonderfully warm and weird as the set of Fringe. A few journos and I had the pleasure of visiting the gang in Vancouver last week, and when I wasn’t handing out EWwy awards, I was gathering some fun little intel for fans of the mind-bending cult fave. (If you haven’t read the post-mortem from Friday, head here.) READ FULL STORY

'Made in Jersey' premiere a ratings grenade

CBS’ new legal drama Made In Jersey got off to a poor start in the ratings Friday night, which also saw the final season return of Fox’s Fringe.

Made In Jersey stars Janet Montgomery as a Garden State lawyer moving into the Manhattan big leagues. The drama opened to 7.7 million viewers and a very slight 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, down 39 percent from the debut of CSI: NY in this 9 p.m. time slot. The series also received somewhat lousy reviews, averaging only a 43 out of 100 on Metacritic (one critic dubbed it Snooki’s Law). Both of CBS’ bracketing returning shows, CSI: NY (9 million, 1.3) and Blue Bloods (11 million, 1.5), performed stronger than the newcomer, though both also slipped from last fall. CBS still managed to lead the night in total viewers, though tied ABC in the demo.

Over on Fox, Fringe (3.2 million, 1.1) was lower too, dropping 27 percent from last fall for its final season premiere. (Don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere).

So did anything do well Friday night? READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' season premiere: Cast answers burning questions from the set -- EW VIDEO

Torture. Emotional family reunions. A bleak picture of the world’s future. Strange foods. Yup, Fringe had all the makings of a classically great season premiere. Of course, there’s a lot more to come.

So when EW hit the set of Fringe earlier this week and got a chance to chat with actors John Noble, Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, and Jasika Nicole, there was no holding back all the burning questions we were left with after getting an early peek at the episode fans saw tonight. (Note: Jeff Jensen’s full recap is in the works!)

'Fringe': Joshua Jackson promises to 'knock your socks off,' plus five tuneful teases about tonight's season premiere

Fringe will bring five years of brainy-bizarre and emotionally engaging storytelling to a close this season with an epic yarn that can be summed up in a word: Observageddon. Joshua Jackson couldn’t be more psyched. “The last great untold story we have is the Observers’ story,” says the actor, who plays the temporally displaced alt-reality orphan Peter Bishop on Fox’s Friday night cult fave. “Just from a geek standpoint, going into the future and telling their tale is super-cool. … There’s going to be some knock-your-socks-off revelations.”

For anyone who read that last paragraph and felt lost… well, where’ve you been the past four years?! (“Sealed in amber” is the only acceptable response.) READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' promo art features Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv and John Noble as rebel icons... or the next great punk rock trio

With the premiere of Fringe’s fifth and final season almost here, Fox is launching a new promotional campaign that sets the tone for the sci-fi saga’s last hurrah. If you’ve been keeping up with the intel coming out of the Fringe camp since Comic-Con and through the Fall TV preview season, then you know that the show’s climactic chapter will take place in the year 2036, when/where The Observers rule the Earth as uppity overlords, and the former agents of Fringe division are freedom fighters questing to sweep away their powdery-skinned time traveling oppressors, perhaps back to the environmentally wrecked far future epoch from which those damn fedora’d fascists hail.

Fox’s key art speaks to that premise, via an image that also slyly symbolizes Fringe itself, a cult fave that could never quite connect with the masses, that got exiled to the rough streets of Friday night and yet survived, that found a dedicated audience and a compelling identity by being as Fringe-y as possible.

Or maybe I read too much into things. You be the judge:


'Fringe': A new photo from 2036 -- EXCLUSIVE

As you should have already heard, the fifth and final (sniff) season of Fringe largely takes place in 2036, a time in which the Observers have taken over.

In this season, which picks up right after “Letters of Transit,” the Fringe team, who have been preserved in amber for 20 years, are part of the resistance movement and fighting for freedom from their pale rulers. And it’s clear in the photo below, which you’re seeing first on, that they’re not going down without a fight.

True story: The other day, I spent three hours planning my TV schedule for fall. Yes, three hours. And yes, I took into account the fact that I have two DVRs. (Work and home!)

Like any good athlete, I’ve prepared and am ready for battle. THIS IS OUR TIME, fellow couch potatoes. Join me!

And now that we’re all motivated, I invite you to channel that excitement into some questions! Send all burning questions to And if you’ve already submitted one, maybe it made this week’s Spoiler Room column… READ FULL STORY

'Fringe' promo shows a very bloody Walter -- VIDEO


Fringe fans, avert your eyes from this horrific and heartbreaking sight, courtesy of the newest promo for the show’s final season. In the video made available today, our beloved Walter is seen bloody and in overall rough shape as he is seemingly being held captive by an Observer. And it’s tough to watch — even briefly. But if you’re up for it, click below:

New 'Fringe' promo features parental Peter and Olivia, a peek at Observaggedon

Comic-Con last month presented the first trailer for Fringe‘s final season. But that preview was created before production on season 5 began and primarily featured footage only from the Fox show’s time-jumping 19th episode of season 4, so fans have been eagerly anticipating the first real look at the fifth and final season, which starts airing Friday, Sept. 28. Now that wait is over: The promo for the season premiere has hit the web.

The video’s YouTube page declares the premiere title to be the name of Peter and Olivia’s child, “Etta,” which is a change from the much more of a mouthful, previously announced title, “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11.” Take a look at the promo featuring what would be a nightmare for any Observer-fearing parent below: READ FULL STORY
