Yes, Perd Hapley of 'Parks and Rec' was on 'Revenge' last night: We chat with TV's hardest-working fake newscaster

Buried within Sunday’s crazypants Revenge finale was a glorious Easter egg for devoted TV watchers: a newscast delivered by none other than Perd Hapley, a.k.a. Pawnee, Indiana’s most beloved TV personality.

Well, sort of. Perd, of course, isn’t real — he’s played by Jay Jackson, who’s delivered fictional news reports on series including Scandal, DexterThe MentalistThe Closer, and Body of Proof, not to mention movies like Battleship and Fast Five. Look at Jackson’s IMDB page, in fact, and you’ll find that he’s played a reporter nearly every single time he’s appeared onscreen.

Why is that? Simple: Jay Jackson actually was a professional reporter for many years, with an impressive broadcast resume that includes stops at various local stations in Los Angeles and San Diego, as well as two prestigious Golden Mike awards. (He hasn’t, however, won an individual Emmy, despite what the Internet may have you believe: “I was part of a newscast that won a Best Newscast Emmy in 1997. Some reporters claim that as an Emmy win, but I don’t,” he explains to EW. “I think a promoter put that on a flyer some time ago and it’s just been going around.”)

How did Jackson go from real-life Ron Burgundy to fake newsman extraordinaire? EW called him to find out. READ FULL STORY

WARNING: This story contains spoilers from the season finale of Revenge. Proceed with caution, West Coast!

Fans of ABC’s twisted Hamptons drama-fest Revenge learned earlier this week that the show would be returning for a fourth season, and thank the TV Gods for that. Because after tonight’s season finale, which featured multiple deaths and one HUGE twist, we’re guessing there would have been a few not-so happy fans. “I was telling everyone, if we didn’t get picked up, that was going to be the ultimate act of revenge,” jokes exec producer Sunil Nayar, who called EW to break down the show’s boldest finale yet.

Of course she does. In this exclusive clip from season 3’s finale, Emily seems to be on the hunt for her next move when she’s stopped by — you guessed it — Victoria, making for a heated exchange in a graveyard.

'Revenge' First Look: Olivier Martinez gets close to Victoria...and Emily?

Somehow it doesn’t surprise us that Victoria is looking cozy with media mogul Pascal LeMarchal (guest star Olivier Martinez) in this Revenge First Look, but what’s he doing with Emily on his other arm?

Explanations will be given soon enough as Revenge returns with new episodes March 9. And it is in this upcoming string of fresh episodes that we will first meet Martinez’s character, who is the father of Karine Vanasse’s Margaux and is said to have a romantic history with Victoria. Judging by these exclusive photos from the March 23 hour, however, perhaps their attraction isn’t necessarily a thing of the past. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge': A sneak peek of the show's January return -- VIDEO

After being shot twice in the stomach by [spoiler alert] her new husband, Daniel, Emily Thorne is in rough condition when Revenge returns Jan. 5 for a new batch of episodes. The most pressing issue? She doesn’t remember a thing!

This development, which you can see below in a brand new clip from the show’s Jan. 5 episode, was teased by star Emily VanCamp when she spoke exclusively to EW about the big shooter reveal. “She’s so lost, she’s so confused, she’s so vulnerable,” VanCamp said of her amnesia-stricken character. “It’s a whole different side we’ve never seen.”

'Revenge' post-mortem: Emily VanCamp on finding out shooter's identity, what comes next -- EXCLUSIVE

Sixty seconds into the new season of Revenge, Emily Thorne was shot. But exactly who fired the gun was a mystery that the show kept from viewers and expertly unraveled in the episodes that followed.

Tonight, the mystery was finally solved. [Do not read on if you do not want to know who shot Emily Thorne.] READ FULL STORY

'Revenge' sneak peek: Emily and Daniel duke it out -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you thought last week’s episode of Revenge had lots of Daniel vs. Emily moments, just wait till you check out the exclusive clip from this Sunday’s episode below.

In it, Daniel confronts Em about a not-so-flattering factoid that ended up in a story about him, and what transpires is pretty explosive.

These two really duke it out more than any healthy engaged couple should, and I’d wager that this split was for good if we didn’t already know that Emily at least makes it into her white dress.

InsideTV Podcast: Colton claims he did NOT quit 'Survivor' twice

Colton Cumbie secured his place in Survivor infamy last night when — coming off a season in which he was a legitimate contender for most unlikable Survivor contestant ever — he quit just days into Survivor: Blood vs. Water because he didn’t like his tribemates. But if he thought he was taking the easy way out, he was wrong, because host Jeff Probst lit into him for what the host suggested was a “selfish” move. Actually, the host suggested a lot more than that, even reaching into the past of Survivor: One World to throw another accusation Colton’s way. “What is it that has happened on your tribe that is forcing you to quit,” asked Probst, “for what now I can confirm for myself is a second time? The first time you feigned an appendicitis. Turns out you didn’t have it. You want to own that one now?”

Colton called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning and, in fact, did not want to own it, claiming that it was some sort of mystery illness that led him to leave Survivor: One World. Colton told Jessica Shaw and me exactly why he quit this time, how he felt about Probst raking him over the coals, and what he thinks the public’s perception of him is now. He also reveals what put him on the outs of the tribe (targeting Aras), and that he actually would not have quit had Tyson swapped places with Rachel at Redemption Island, putting her on his tribe. Whether you love him or hate him — and I’m guessing almost everyone falls into the latter category — you’ll want to hear what Colton has to say about his latest debacle of a showing and you can do it by clicking on the audio player icon below.
