'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.

'Revenge' season 2 promo: Emily under pressure (and underwater!)

In season 1 of Revenge, we learned that Emily Thorne performs well under pressure. But I’m incredibly curious to see her Houdini her way out of the dangerous situation previewed in the promo for the show’s second season.

The video (see it below!) doesn’t give much context, but what we do see is Emily (Emily VanCamp) struggling to free herself before drowning in the ocean.

Here’s hoping Takeda included some water training in his Ass-Kicker lessons, or that mom Jennifer Jason Leigh has fins. (Better yet! Maybe Ryan Lochte can swim over from 90210 to help.)

Find out how it all pans out when the show returns Sept. 30.


'Revenge' DVD extra: Who is Nolan's secret nemesis? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Just how does Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) get himself into sticky situations like this one pictured here in season 1 of Revenge? One word: secrets. And it’s just that — again, secrets! — that are heavily spilled in the extras on the Revenge: Season 1 DVD release, which hits retailers a week from today, Aug. 21.

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive peek at a particularly juicy extra, “Nolan Ross Exposed,” which features the dastardly Mr. Ross in a recently unearthed sit-down interview with reporter Sarah Juarez (Stephanie Maura Sanchez). You might remember Juarez from news updates during the season finale plane crash, but in the “Nolan Ross Exposed” extra, she grills Nolan about everything from his childhood to his father, and his sexuality to his business, NolCorp. He gamely — often to hilarious effect — answers.

The full “Nolan Ross Exposed” extra is about three minutes long (and even features Sarah asking Nolan about his patented whale cameras), but the minute or so we have here concerns queries about a woman who seems to be something of a nemesis to Nolan. Sarah suggests that Nolan’s business has succeeded because of this mysterious (and now jettisoned) woman, and that’s where this EW exclusive clip picks up — and where the billionaire gets extremely defensive and sassy. “I’m not denying that she’s smart, but she obviously pulled the wool over your eyes, though — that wouldn’t be difficult,” says Ross. “I’m just saying there’s a reason that Swift Tech is located so close to my coattails.”


'New Girl,' 'Revenge,' 'Scandal,' 'Sons of Anarchy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hello from L.A. and TCA!

'Revenge': Jennifer Jason Leigh to play Emily's mom

Huge casting news on ABC’s Revenge: Acclaimed actress Jennifer Jason Leigh joined season 2.

She’s landed the much-anticipated recurring role of Emily Thorne’s mysterious mom.

Who will play Emily’s not-actually-dead mom has been a big guessing game among fans for months. Back in May, creator Mike Kelley told “What we really want to do is find the perfect actor for the role. It would be really great for her to be as formidable as Madeleine [Stowe], but it’s a completely different part.” Stowe once noted, “It’s got to be someone who’s got a little bit of a screw loose and can do that well.” READ FULL STORY

Emmy Watch: 'Revenge' creator on the season's best moments

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to return nomination ballots, is running a series called Emmy Watch, featuring highlight clips and interviews with actors, producers, and writers whom EW TV critic Ken Tucker has on his wish list for the nominations announcement on July 19. 

Whatever you do, don’t call Revenge a soap opera to creator Mike Kelley. Okay, we’ll call it a smart, addictive, complex, original, hilarious, heartfelt, and yes, occasionally sudsy drama about Emily Thorne’s (Emily VanCamp) return to the Hamptons to take down the family responsible for her father’s death. With a first season full of murder, romance, and fabulous parties aplenty, the highlight had to be the season finale, which wrapped up enough to keep us sated, but left enough questions open to keep us intrigued all summer long. Kelley, who is already writing next season’s scripts (no, he won’t answer anything about Victoria getting off that plane), shared his favorite moments of that episode and the rest of the season.


Emmy Watch: Madeleine Stowe looks back at the 'Revenge' finale

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to return nomination ballots, is running a series called Emmy Watch, featuring highlight clips and interviews with actors, producers, and writers whom EW TV critic Ken Tucker has on his wish list for the nominations announcement on July 19. 

Thanks to a surge of great roles for women on cable and in broadcast, Supporting Actress in a Drama could end up being the most competitive category when Emmys are handed out Sept. 23 on ABC. With the balloting process beginning June 11, EW asked Madeleine Stowe to reflect on Revenge‘s first season and what episode she would submit if she’s fortunate enough to hear her name read as a nominee next month.


'Revenge': Who should play Emily's mom?

During Wednesday’s high-octane finale of Revenge, it was revealed that Emily (Emily Van Camp) may not be alone in this world after all.

Her mother lives!

That means a new foe for Victoria will pop up in season 2. Oh, the possibilities! To whet our appetites, this is what creator Mike Kelley had to say about the new part to EW’s Tanner Stransky: “What we really want to do is find the perfect actor for the role. It would be really great for her to be as formidable as Madeleine [Stowe], but it’s a completely different part. What you’re going to discover about the woman who was Emily’s mother is the circumstances under which they were separated and you’re going to find that there’s some deep psychological issues with her, which I think is going to be fun for us to explore. For Emily, she’s going to start seeing some of the psychological damage that her mother has in herself.”

The challenge is finding the perfect woman who seems capable of inflicting such emotional damage (and able to go toe-to-toe mentally with the fierce Madeleine Stowe). If only Dana Delany weren’t tied up for another season in the low-rated Body of Proof; we like her chances opposite Victoria. At least there are plenty more 40-something women who could assume the part of Emily’s mother-from-hell.

Would Sigourney Weaver ever do a TV soap? Perhaps that’s wishful thinking. What about Sharon Stone? We heard rumblings that she was approached for the pilot. And what about Marcia Cross?

So many choices. Fortunately, there are plenty of 40-something women who are up for the job. Take our poll below…or add a few of your own!

'Revenge' season finale: Creator Mike Kelley answers burning questions!

Last night’s season finale of ABC’s delectable soap Revenge — perfectly titled “Reckoning” — was, in a word, explosive. And filled with juicy cliffhanger after cliffhanger.

With so many doors opened, there are so many questions that are begged: Is Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) really dead? What’s going on with the increasingly tangled love life of Emily (Emily Van Camp), Jack (Nick Wechsler), Amanda (Margarita Levieva), Daniel (Josh Bowman), and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe)? Is Amanda’s baby really Jack’s? Who will play Emily’s mother? And what will the character be like? How did the show so perfectly pick Florence and the Machine’s haunting “Seven Devils” to play during the episode?

To answer these questions, we went straight to the source: Revenge creator and executive producer Mike Kelley, who holds the keys to the show’s castle. As usual, he was tight-lipped about some things — but let a few other juicy tidbits slip. Read on for the answers to all your burning questions from last night’s season finale.


'Revenge' boss teases season finale and poses a juicy query: 'Is Emily willing to kill?'

What’s going on with Revenge‘s dynamic, scheming duo Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Nolan (Gabriel Mann) in this photo? You’ll find out more in tonight’s season finale, but EW enlisted the show’s creator and executive producer Mike Kelley to answer the big question this shot begs: Did Emily and Nolan get caught?

You’re not going to get the answer that easy. “It’s either a predicament… or it’s Emily’s plan,” Kelley teases cryptically. Last week’s episode detailed the beginning of Emily’s hunt for the elusive white-haired man (played by James Morrison) who killed her father in prison. “He has all of the information, and there’s this weird kind of respect between the two of them,” Kelley continues. “What we tried to do was try to emulate the Clarice Darling and Hannibal Lecter relationship, because it’s oddly sort of sympathetic or empathetic. It’s really interesting — they’re both cut from the same cloth. They’re mortal adversaries, but they have a respect for each other, and it’s a really interesting relationship.”


TV's top time-period battles this fall

With the fall TV schedule now complete (below), we get to step back and take a look at the hellish battleground that broadcast hath wrought. There’s some very tough-to-predict match-ups this fall:*

Tim Allen vs. Whitney Cummings (Fridays, 8-9): “No, my show’s lamer!” ABC and NBC have their low-expectations comedies airing on Fridays this fall, and they might run head-to-head depending on when NBC launches (ABC’s comedies premiere in November). NBC has Whitney and Community and ABC has Last Man Standing and new comedy Malibu Country. (Community fans, if your ass beat by Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, we have no words for you). At least 9 p.m. shows Shark Tank and Grimm will have half-way decent lead-ins for once. Our prediction: Edge goes to ABC.

Britney Spears vs. Christina ‪Aguilera‬: OK, so one this is kind of a cheat. The Voice and X Factor won’t air on the same nights, let along in the same time period. But if you think their lack of head-to-head scheduling will matter to the media, you deserve to be hit, baby, one more time. Everybody will obsess over how these two compare. NBC’s The Voice has the wind at its back, averaging 6.2 in the adult demo this season compared to X Factor‘s 4.4. We all want to see how Spears handles the reality show spotlight, but many wonder if she can pull off being entertaining and analytical. Mark Burnett cast The Voice with big names who are charismatic and have the cojones to criticize a singer. Simon Cowell seems to like big names — who are just big names. Prediction: You can’t hold down Xtina. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge' boss teases tonight's origins episode: 'It's a love letter to fans'

Tonight’s new episode of ABC’s soapy indulgence Revenge is titled “Legacy” for a good reason — it delves into the history of lead character Emily (Emily Van Camp) as it relates to the folks she’s currently trying to take down in the Hamptons. The official logline from ABC describes tonight’s episode as “the genesis of Amanda’s ultimate plan to bring justice from her father.” But we’ll let series creator and executive producer Mike Kelley explain: “It’s sort of one from the archives, one from the Revenge archives,” he says. “I wouldn’t call it a flashback episode, as much as an archival episode. It’s a bit of a love letter to fans.”
