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.

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?

Modern Family definitely has a gay agenda coming up, but it’s not what you think! We all know that Cameron and Mitchell are preparing for their big wedding day on the ABC sitcom, but before they can make it to the altar, there needs to be a wild and crazy Las Vegas bachelor party! However, as Eric Stonestreet told us when he stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), it won’t be Cam & Mitchell’s bachelor party. “We just shot an episode that was kind of an anti-bachelor party episode in Vegas,” says the man who plays Cam. “When we get there we run into Langham, Mitchell’s ex played by the great Fred Armisen, and he’s there having his bachelor party. And they say ‘Well, while you’re here, feel free to stop by,’ and he hands me a piece of paper with all the happenings, and I turn and I go, ‘Wow, an actual gay agenda.’ So I sneak off and go and participate in their bachelor party while Mitchell gets a sauna and gets a massage.” READ FULL STORY
No parrots. No peg legs. No eye patches. You will find none of those things in Starz’s new pirate drama Black Sails (which debuts Jan.25). What you will find, however, is a big sweeping adventure in the pursuit of treasure. And leading that pursuit is none other than Toby Stephens, who stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios (SiriusXM, channel 105) to chat all about it. And he reveals that when he was originally approached about starring on a pirate show, he had no interest. “When my agent sent me the script,” says Stephens, “I just went, ‘forget it.’” But then he finally read the darn thing and enlisted in what has the potential to be Starz’s biggest hit since the dearly departed Spartacus.
You can now hear the entire interview right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Stephens explains about life on the high seas, the pirate code of conduct, and why “they stopped at the teeth” when it came to making him and his shipmates look especially gross and grimy. Stephens also discusses his role in the James Bond universe, not only playing a villain in Die Another Day, but actually playing 007 himself as well. It’s a fun, rollicking chat that somehow manages to completely avoid the words “arrgh,” “matey,” and “scurvy” throughout. Just click the audio player icon below to listen in.
But that’s not all! We also break down all the Golden Globe television category shockers (Brooklyn Nine-Nine?) with Kristen Baldwin while weighing in on all things Jacqueline Bisset. And last, but certainly not least, Tricia Helfer stops by the studio to talk about her new ABC show Killer Women as well as her continuing friendship/partnership with fellow Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff. The only question is: How much awesomeness can you handle? Because there is plenty of awesomeness to go around. READ FULL STORY
Rejoice, human beings! Community is back, inching ever closer to actually fulfilling its “six seasons and a movie” destiny. Yet even as rabid as some fans may be, and even as exciting as the news is that show creator Dan Harmon has returned, there are still many who have yet to give the off-the-wall NBC comedy a chance. Rather than conduct an Inspector Spacetime investigation into this ongoing mystery, we enlisted Community cast member Gillian Jacobs to explain exactly why people should be tuning into season 5. And she did just that when she stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studios.
Now you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Jacobs talks all about the return of fired showrunner Harmon, discusses how her character of Britta has evolved (devolved?) since the show began, and reveals how much she actually understands when she first picks up a Community script. There is also a tangent about “stolen touchdowns” that is most certainly worth your time. It’s a must-listen for any fan of either Community or Torg the troll.
But that’s not all, because we then step into whooooooooose house? Run’s house!!!! (Sorry, 1980s rap reference there.) Rev Run himself stopped by the EW Radio studios with his lovely wife Justine to talk all about their new DIY show, Rev Run’s Renovation. Does the master M.C. know anything about home renovation? And can his marriage survive a house being turned upside down in order to install such things as a princess bed with a slide in his daughter’s room? I chat with hip-hop royalty about all that and more. READ FULL STORY
Paschal English got some company last week when Katie Collins became the second Survivor contestant ever to be ousted from the tribe after a colored-rock pulling tiebreaker. Her exit from Survivor: Blood vs. Water followed last night when she was beaten out by her own mother at Redemption Island. Katie called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to chat all about her time on the island, including her decision to chance it with the rocks, whether any part of her did not want to give her mother the okay to beat her, and why she is a bit worried about Kat after boyfriend Hayden went on about how “hot” she looked on the jury. And now you can listen to the entire interview right here and right now on the InsideTVPodcast. READ FULL STORY
Vytas Baskuaskas had his spot seemingly secured for another few days on Survivor: Blood vs. Water. Laura Morett had already won the Redemption Island duel, but he was well ahead of Tina Wesson in the loser-is-eliminated battle. Then he tried to sneak a peek at Laura’s completed puzzle. Then Laura blocked and twirled it so he couldn’t. And then she went one step further, giving Tina the answers so she could get her biggest competition out of the game. It was a savvy strategic move, but a brutal way for Vytas to be handed his proverbial walking papers, which explains why he refused the post-duel hug. The ousted Vytas called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to share his feelings on the controversial move — and those feelings are still conflicted. “I was pretty bummed when it happened,” says Vytas. “It’s Survivor, man. It’s a game of low blows and it was a low blow. And as long as you don’t get called out on it, it’s not against the rules. So kudos to them for taking me out.” READ FULL STORY
As a previous winner of Survivor, Aras Baskauskas knew he would be a target when he returned to play Blood vs. Water. But he didn’t see it coming when he was voted out of the tribe a few weeks back. And he certainly didn’t see being betrayed by one of his closest allies in the game — Gervase. Now that he has been eliminated from the game after losing the duel at Redemption Island, Aras called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to break down how, why, and where it all went wrong.
