SPOILER ALERT! Who shot J.R? It was his sister-in-law and mistress Kristin Shepard. That may sound a bit ridiculous to offer a spoiler alert for something that aired 34 years ago, but consider that someone once sent an angry letter to EW after I offhandedly mentioned the identity of Rosebud from 1941’s Citizen Kane, a “mistake” I do not plan to make again here. But all of this begs the question: When does a spoiler cease to be a spoiler? And whose responsibility is it to prevent the dissemination of information after it has already been made public: the person that has already watched it, or the person who has yet to see the TV show or movie in question?

Tag: Hart of Dixie (1-10 of 17)
George has been a bit of a free agent in the business of love so far on this season of Hart of Dixie. But that’s about to change.
On tonight’s episode, Wade’s ex Tansy (Mircea Monroe) is back in Bluebell, but this time around, she’s not just there to ruffle Wade’s feathers — she’s getting close to George (Scott Porter). “She sort of turns his whole world upside down and he loves it,” teases Porter. READ FULL STORY

Even though New York is freezing, things are heating up in TV Land.
Okay, to be honest, it’s not that cold today; I just needed something to open the column with. Give me a break, you know how hard it is to come up with random openers every week? Does anyone actually read these two first paragraphs? Bueller? Bueller? Forget it. But don’t forget to send questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘THE WALKING DEAD’: MORE MAJOR CASUALTIES TO COME?
The collision with Woodbury is coming and Lauren Cohan couldn’t be more excited for fans of The Walking Dead to see it for themselves. “Maggie plays a big part in that,” she teases of the clash. “It’s going to be crazy!”
Crazy — and deadly, as one might expect. “The body count is not done,” she says. “That’s pretty much all I can say, but we’re not just going to see death. There’s going to be a whole host of challenges now that we’ve got the human threat. Woodbury is up to no good. The Governor is up to no good; it’s really scary. We’ve got some scary stuff ahead.”
And with the gang and Rick still reeling from at least two major losses (Carol = RIP?), exactly who will step up as the leader when the two camps finally meet is not entirely clear. The only guarantee? They’re going to have a formidable foe in the Gov. “It’s interesting to see within the prison [group that] people step up and lead even if they don’t want to. In Woodbury, the Governor steps up and takes control because that’s something he couldn’t have gotten away with in the real world. And that has absolutely no limits.”
Hart of Dixie‘s second episode of the season airs Tuesday and while we already know what we can expect from BlueBellapalooza, there’s much more to come — like a camping trip, an armadillo, George “sowing his oats,” and possibly an amendment to the “decision” Zoe made in last week’s season premiere.
Rachel Bilson spilled on all this and more as she took on some questions that y’all sent in for your Spoiler Room video. READ FULL STORY
Bluebell is one talented town. So what better way for them to show off their various skills than with a talent show?
Continuing Hart of Dixie‘s tradition of hosting random events, this week’s episode finds the town in a tizzy over its very first BlueBellapalooza, where cast members Scott Porter, Wilson Bethel, and Claudia Lee will end up showing off their musical skills.
Lee, who plays Lemon’s younger sister Magnolia on the sophomore drama, says the episode “picks up the pieces from the premiere,” where, as you’ll recall, Zoe and Lemon each made their own declarations of independence. “Lemon is trying to become independent, and Magnolia and Brick are confused,” says Lee. “It’s a lot of new things and new avenues that everyone is exploring.”
It’s a message Lee says her song, “Take My Hand,” which she performs in the episode, also touches on. “It’s a great song about sticking to what you believe in and I really think it describes what’s going on in Bluebell right now and what’s going on in season 2 of Hart of Dixie.”
Check out a piece of her performance below! READ FULL STORY
The last time we checked in with Dr. Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), she was torn between George (Scott Porter) and Wade (Wilson Bethel), but Hart of Dixie exec producer Leila Gerstein promises the indecision won’t last long.
“We will pick up episode one with Zoe realizing that the choice is in front of her,” says Gerstein, about the second season premiere, which kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. EST on the CW. “The truth will come out to both gentleman and she will make her choice.”
Just don’t expect this “choice” to put an end to the tension between the trio. In fact, Gerstein says the triangle gets even more heated in season two.
“Now that George has laid his cards on the table and Wade and Zoe have actually had sex everything is much more heightened,” says Gerstein. “The triangle will get to play as actual real relationships and emotional stories…and there’s some sex.” Obviously.
Bilson, for her part, is looking forward to seeing where the triangle is headed. “It’s quite a pickle Zoe is in,” she says. “[But] I think it’s a sweet pickle because what girl doesn’t want two guys?”

Is McKayla Maroney impressed by Hart of Dixie? Seems so. The Olympics sensation has lined up guest-star role on The CW’s small-town medical drama.
Maroney is, of course, a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. team who competed at the Olympics this summer in London. She’ll appear in Hart of Dixie‘s second season as Tonya — a girl who comes to the defense of her friend of Rose (recurring guest star McKaley Miller). A few weeks ago The CW snatched up another Olympics star, Ryan Lochte, for a gig on 90210, and last week Maroney’s teammate Gabby Douglas landed a part on The Vampire Diaries (of the three roles, methinks Gabby got The CW guest-star casting gold medal).
Hart of Dixie stars Rachel Bilson and returns to The CW on Oct. 2.

Surprise: NBC’s America’s Got Talent premiered lower in the ratings this year despite the high-profile addition of Howard Stern as the show’s new judge.
Monday’s two-hour Got Talent returned to 10.3 million viewers and a 3.6 rating, down 16 percent from last year. EW’s Ken Tucker suggested Stern’s performance was almost too nice.
Before everybody points fingers at Stern, however, here’s a big mitigating factor: Last year Got Talent premiered at the very end of May and was paired with The Voice. This year, Got Talent faced a full boat of competition from rival networks, so the talent competition might have returned lower in the ratings due to the scheduling change. NBC points out last night’s rating matches Got Talent‘s performance two years ago. At 10 p.m., NBC’s Smash (6.1 million, 1.8) finale was steady.

Poor George Tucker. He just learned his fiancée cheated on him with a friend. He’s not sure who to trust. And he’s generally on a downward spiral. So where can a good man blow off steam? New Orleans, of course!
Tonight’s episode of Hart of Dixie follows sweet old George (Scott Porter) to the Big Easy, where he flees to escape his shambles of a life. The result, says Porter, is a George unlike fans have ever seen.
“[So far] we’ve seen a very level-headed man — someone who is very intent on fixing things and making everyone’s lives easy and making sure that everyone is happy. And when George’s world comes crumbling down and he sees everyone knew about this secret, he feels like a fool,” says the Friday Night Lights alum. “I think at some point everyone in this world has to think of No. 1. If you don’t make yourself happy and if you’re not secure in all your relationships, it only leads to hurt and destruction.” That’s not to say George isn’t feeling a little hurt and destructive in tonight’s episode. But he’s able to channel all of that into a rather rousing musical performance, which you can check out in the video below. (And, yes, that is actually Porter, a longtime theater performer, singing on the show!)
Also along for the George Tucker Broken Heart Tour? Zoe Hart, naturally. READ FULL STORY
