A crazy season of Survivor got even crazier when terrible Tony decided to blow up his alliance and oust LJ instead — even though that kept the bigger threat of Spencer around and may have turned future jury members against the Jersey City cop…excuse me, “construction worker.” Poor LJ was the victim of a guy who simply can’t sit still. How does he feel about his ouster? We found out when LJ called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss his big blindside. READ FULL STORY

Last night’s episode of Survivor was filled with some very candid comments from Morgan McLeod. Among the gems was this: “I am used to things being easier for me and not having to work that hard to get things.” And this: “She is a bitter, ugly, old lady. And I think she hates me because I’m cuter than her and have always been cuter than her.” And this: “If any person in the world can decide to be ugly or cute, most would pick cute.” And — after she was voted out — this: “They can say whatever they want at Tribal, that I was spiteful or that I was lazy, but I could care less what they said. I mean, Kass is a child and if she was upset with me — whatever. Grow up. You’re 40. Get over it.” READ FULL STORY
Things got personal last night on Survivor: Cagayan between Sarah and Kass. The alliance-mates could not agree on whom to target on the other tribe, so Kass decided to target someone else — Sarah! The move killed not only Sarah’s chances in the game (as she was eliminated), but also effectively ended Kass’ chances as well seeing as how her former tribemates that she turned on will likely never vote for her to win the million dollars now. So what was the strategic reason for the flipping? Or did Kass — who at one point told us “I can’t even look at her. I just want to punch her sometimes” — do it merely to fulfill a personal vendetta.
The woman she ousted believes it to be the latter. Sarah Lacina called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) today to talk about her big feud with Kass, and she left no doubt about her feelings for the lawyer, with whom she says she is “not on the best of terms.” Sarah also had some strong words when it comes to what she sees as Kass’ attempt to be a breakout villain on the show: “Just because nobody likes you doesn’t make you a villain, it just means nobody likes you.” Ouch. She also tells her adversary to “grow up.” READ FULL STORY
Game of Thrones returns on April 6 with a doozy of an episode and a doozy of a new character, the infamous Prince Oberyn (a.k.a. the Red Viper). Why the Red Viper? “He will poison you,” explains the man who plays him, Pedro Pascal. “He will stick you.” Pascal served up plenty of intel on his character and what to expect in season 4 when he stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio. And he explained why drama will follow when Oberyn stops into King’s Landing, because it seems the prince is not quite a fan of the Lannisters.
“He has only hate for the Lannisters, actually” explains Pascal. “He has shaped his entire life around his hate for the Lannisters.” (Fans of the books will know that hate springs from blame he assigns to the family for past events involving his sister, but we shall say no more here.) While Oberyn shows no fear, we couldn’t help but wonder if Pascal was nervous about filming some of Game of Thrones‘ notorious sex scenes, of which the actor became familiar with quite quickly — as in episode 1 quickly. “They warn you before you audition,” says Pascal of being told what was expected of him on the nudity front. But that wasn’t the thing the actor was most nervous about. “The thing I was scared of the most — it wasn’t the nakedness. It wasn’t the fighting with the spear and doing wushu martial arts. It was doing the scene with…”
Cliff Robinson made in to the NBA playoffs in 17 of his 18 seasons as a professional basketball player, but he experienced considerably less success in his latest competition, being blindsided on last night’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan after two of his former Brawn tribemates flipped sides to do him in. But the former NBA All-Star took the defeat in stride and called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to chat all about his time on the island…and in North Korea! And now you can hear the entire interview right here on the InsideTV Podcast!
Cliff reveals that he never knew about the plan to throw the challenge to get him out, talks about whether he holds any grudges, and mentions the one thing that happened that he wishes they had shown. Plus, he talks about meeting Kim Jong-un! (There’s something you don’t hear on many Survivor exit interviews.)

We already made the big reveal last week that about a new clone named Jennifer Fitzsimmons being introduced on season 2 of Orphan Black, but the creators of the show — Graeme Manson and John Fawcett — may not be stopping there. The duo called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), and when asked whether there may be even more clones introduced in season 2, they indicated that there indeed could be hope for additional sightings. “If one were going to go fishing for a new clone in our pond,” says Manson, “you might have a chance of catching another.” READ FULL STORY
You might expect someone that struggled mightily in pretty much every single challenge, tossed out her tribe’s food supply, took the lead on building a terrible shelter, and then got voted out one day before a tribe shake-up that could have completely changed her fortunes in the game to have some regrets from her experience on Survivor: Cagayan. But not when then someone is nuclear engineer J’Tia Taylor. One day after being eliminated on the show, J’Tia called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about how it all went wrong, and we mean ALL went wrong. And now you can hear the entire interview right here on the InsideTV Podcast. READ FULL STORY
They are determined to find each other. And if that means forcing everyone else to go along with their search, then SO BE IT! Maggie and Glenn will be together again! Or so they hope. The woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk all about tonight’s episode of the zombie drama and the evolution of her character. “It’s really the first time we’ve seen Maggie outside of the family Greene and without Glenn,” says Cohan.

Brice Johnston came onto Survivor: Cagayan wearing bright purple pants, but such attire was not the loudest thing about him. Even months after being eliminated from the show, Brice still has some choice words for his former Beauty tribe, and he shared those words when he called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) today to discuss his early exit. Whether he is blasting Alexis and Jefra for their lack of work ethic, slamming Jeremiah for…well, being Jeremiah, or just talking smack about everyone in general, Brice is ready to let her rip. And you can hear the rippage right here and right now on the InsideTV Podcast.
Brice also explains just how bad that rainstorm was, which players from other tribes he wanted to align with, and what surprised him most watching the season play back on TV. He also maintains the Beauty tribe wanted to get rid of him because he is the cutest member among them. So there’s that. To listen in on our interview with Brice, just click on the audio player icon below. READ FULL STORY
A lot of movie directors have been dabbling in television lately. But how many start their own freakin’ TV network? That would be one. And that one would be Robert Rodriguez. The director and now founder of the El Rey network stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this week to talk all about his new “video mix tape” and the super-cool programming they have in store. Of course, at the top of this super-cool list is a new TV version of his 1996 cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn (starring George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, with a screenplay by Tarantino).
So how similar or different will the TV series be? “The film, you only have a limited time to tell a story, and any character that Quentin creates, they can live and breathe for so much more than that,” says Rodriguez. “And so I decided to take the idea of the movie, retell it in a way, add new characters and have different things happen to characters you know and love, and really set up the story to sustain itself for several seasons. We get a lot more into the mythology of the temple where they go, and build up that mythology. You see some sign posts to what the movie had offered story-wise, but it goes in completely different directions.” READ FULL STORY
I don’t know if there will be any life vests on this season of The Amazing Race, but if so, floaters better grab them. That’s because reality royalty returns tonight when husband-and-wife team Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly take their second tour on The Amazing Race when season 24 of the reality show premieres on CBS. But how does racing around the world at breakneck speed compare with backstabbing house guests in the backyard on the show that first made Brenchel famous, Big Brother? We asked the couple when they called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). READ FULL STORY
Counting down the days until the return of Orphan Black? We’ve got over two months left until season 2 of the BBC America clone drama premieres on April 19, but one of the key players insists the wait will be worth it. “Season 2 of Orphan Black is like season 1 on crack,” promises Maria Doyle Kennedy, who plays Sarah’s foster mom, the mysterious Mrs. S.
That was just one of the tidbits Kennedy dropped when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to chat about the show as well as her music career. Another tidbit? Looks like we can expect more Mrs. S in season 2. “You’re going to see more of her,” says Kennedy. “I had a great time in season 1 and there were some great scenes, but there was also a lot of hovering. They just really liked me so wrote me more this time, so that’s great.” READ FULL STORY
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?
