Seth MacFarlane talks 'Cosmos': Show focuses on lesser-known theorists -- VIDEO

If you’re looking for a show about Einstein and other big names in science, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey isn’t for you. That’s because the new show, hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, focuses on the lesser-known names who had a big impact.

Executive producer Seth MacFarlane spoke about this in a Sirius XM Town Hall, hosted by Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean.

In clips of the chat below, MacFarlane talks about new discoveries he made, including the story of Dominican monk Giordano Bruno. Bruno, who was featured in the show’s first episode, is thought to be one of the first to theorize that other stars and planets exist besides earth.

'Parks and Rec': Jim O'Heir teases a 'Jerry-centric' bromance episode and Amy Poehler's alternate idea for his wife

Parks and Recreation may have said goodbye to Chris and Ann, but there’s one character who you’ll still have to begrudgingly deal with for the rest of the season…JERRY!

Jim O’Heir, the actor responsible for TV’s most unfortunate bureaucratic buffoon, called in to EW’s TV Editors Hour on Sirius XM to talk about the current season of Parks and chat about all things Garry-Jerry-Larry Gengurch-Gergich.

Reminiscing about the farewell fetes for Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones, O’Heir recalled, “We set up this surprise [for Rashida]. They actually used the chair from Game of Thrones, and we sat her down in it and we all had little numbers that we did for her, and then we presented her with roses. Me and Adam Scott did something that we’re going to do in the next episode that airs, but I injured my leg doing it.” So…should we anticipate a Ben and Jerry tap number? “You’re not far off, my friend.” READ FULL STORY

Which 'Simpsons' character WON'T die this year? Hank Azaria drops a major clue

Fans of The Simpsons are on edge this year, as executive producer Al Jean teased back in October that the axe will fall on a character in the season 26 premiere. The only clues? The character has appeared more than twice on the show and is voiced by an actor who won an Emmy for playing the role (or roles).

While everyone scrambles to place their bets on the identity of the unlucky victim (the latest in a long line of offed characters including Maude Flanders, Fat Tony, and Bleeding Gums Murphy), Hank Azaria dropped a major clue about the Springfield resident who will kick the bucket in next fall’s season premiere.

'Happy Endings' creator reveals what would have happened to Penny and Dave -- and one GIGANTIC plot twist

It’s been almost a year since ABC sadly canceled its incredibly undervalued sitcom Happy Endings after its third season, and the bite still stings — especially since VH1 teased fans by airing the entire series on New Year’s Day, thereby reminding viewers just what a gem this little ensemble comedy was.

Show creator David Caspe and fiancée Casey Wilson (who starred on the series as perennially unlucky-yet-unswervingly plucky Penny) called in to EW’s TV Editors Hour on Sirius XM to talk about the dearly departed series and what they hope would have happened for the characters. Specifically, we inquired whether Penny and Dave (Zachary Knighton) would ever have gotten together, as a budding romance between the two was briefly suggested in the second season.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Why I was 'miserable' on 'SNL'

EW-SiriusXM-Julia-Louis-Dreyfus.jpg

Like many young comedians, a college-aged Julia Louis-Dreyfus dreamed of performing on Saturday Night Live one day. So when the future Seinfeld star was cast on NBC’s sketch show at the tender age of 21 — before she had even graduated from Northwestern University — she was understandably thrilled. (Louis-Dreyfus has called the moment “a huge Cinderella-getting-to-go-to-the-ball kind of experience.”)

Unfortunately, actually being on SNL was more Grimm brothers fairy tale than sanitized Disney story. “I did not adapt well,” the three-time Emmy winner (and current nominee) told EW editor Jess Cagle at a recent SiriusXM Town Hall. In fact, Louis-Dreyfus continued, “I was pretty miserable.”

'True Blood': Anna Camp says Sarah Newlin's craziest scene airs Sunday (and sent her to the ER)

Anna-Camp-True-Blood-Interview.jpg

It takes a lot to surprise True Blood fans, but Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) kissing the severed head of her late lover, Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), in last week’s episode did it.  “I had no idea, actually, that I was gonna kiss the head, it just sort of happened,” Camp said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly managing editor Jess Cagle that aired this week on EW’s Sirius XM channel. “If I get an impulse that’s, like, creepy, I’m like, why not? They can always tell me not to do it. But better to be pulled back than to be pushed forward, you know.”

But here’s something even more shocking: Sarah Newlin’s most insane moment is still to come. The Aug. 4 episode will feature a sequence shot over three days that the Pitch Perfect actress refers to as “the craziest scene I’ve ever shot.” She ended up going to the emergency room — in full Sarah Newlin hair and makeup — for a minor injury she received doing a stunt.  Listen to the interview below for more.

How did 'Sharknado' get its bite? A Syfy exec speaks

Admit it: Like everyone else, you’re currently obsessed with Sharknado. Syfy’s latest so-bad-it’s-amazing disaster flick is a social media marvel that brought in 5,000 tweets per minute last night — and though its first air is long over, excitement about the movie hasn’t died down quite yet.

Even Syfy senior vice president Craig Engler was shocked by the amount of attention Sharknado attracted last night — though on second thought, he understands the movie’s inescapable pull. “You put sharks in a tornado, and then you apparently have gold,” he explained to Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw on EW’s Sirius station this morning.

For more on the movie, the reaction, which big-name writer wants in for the sequel, and which wacky hybrid movies could be on the horizon next — Taranchalanche, anyone? — check out this clip from the radio show.

Sirius XM Radio and Comedy Central are teaming up to create a new channel on the satellite radio service devoted to showcasing the television network’s stable of stand-up comics.
