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

When season 18 of Dancing With the Stars wraps on May 20, executive producer/showrunner Conrad Green will take his final bow.
EW has confirmed that Green, who was been with Dancing since its launch, is leaving to work on Fox’s Utopia, a new project from Big Brother creator John del Mol. Utopia will take 15 people and put them in an undeveloped location to build their own civilization. They will have an entire year to do so, amidst eliminations and other reality show shenanigans.
Big Brother‘s Jon Kroll will also join Utopia as an executive producer.
Deadline first reported the news.
If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.
Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, Ryan is back. Even worse? He’s injured.
We don’t know much other than that, but we caught up with Matt Lauria to talk about Ryan’s reunion with Amber, his potential future on the show, and the theoretical appearance of his Friday Night Lights character Luke Cafferty (because why not?): READ FULL STORY
'Reign': Adelaide Kane previews Mary's first attempt at blackmail, familial visitors, and Bash and Kenna's 'bonding'
When we last left Reign, King Henry had nearly lost his mind (and quite literally lost his shoes) when he forced Sebastian and Kenna to get married. And, of course, we can’t forget that he appointed a servant named Penelope as his new rightful queen. But believe it or not, this week, Henry is not Mary’s greatest concern. Instead, Mary discovers a new clause in her marriage contract and decides to dip a toe in the blackmail pool that Catherine knows all too well.
We chatted with Adelaide Kane about Mary’s first taste of royal power, her upcoming visitors, and what Bash’s marriage could mean for our favorite love triangle (love square?): READ FULL STORY
Veteran NBC journalist Jane Pauley is joining CBS News Sunday Morning as a contributor. The network’s chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer made the announcement during his annual Schieffer Symposium on the News at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth on Wednesday evening.
“She is reinventing herself and is coming to work at CBS News,” Schieffer said during the event. “We couldn’t be happier.”
Pauley joined Schieffer on the panel, which also included CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, editor Bob Woodward of The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan. READ FULL STORY
Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start off with this hidden immunity idol clue that caused all the ruckus. The clue was hidden in Spencer’s napkin at the reward feast. Do you guys just place it in a napkin and whoever happens to sit there gets it so it is just a random luck of the draw situation? And seeing as how Spencer almost did not even open and use the napkin, have you ever had an instance where you hid a clue and nobody ever found it?
JEFF PROBST: Yes and Yes. In this case, we set up the reward and then they walk in and sit where they want. In fact, I think the woman serving them says “sit wherever you want” or something similar. It’s completely random. And yes, there are times they don’t find the clue. It’s rare but it happens. We don’t worry too much about it because the idols almost always end up being found and even when they aren’t found, players are so good at pretending they have one or making a fake one that they are always an element in the game.

Screw America’s Funniest Home Videos. Screw Punk’d. Screw the Jamie Kennedy Experiment (not really, JKX was amazing). Candid Camera is the OG when it comes to watching people make fools of themselves on national television. And it’s been off the air since 2004. Creator Allen Funt started pranking folks on a radio show called Candid Microphone (doesn’t have the same ring to it, huh?) back in 1947. A year later it moved over to TV, where it was renamed and picked up the most-useful-show-slogan ever: “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera!” Be honest, how many times have you sarcastically said that to someone? Mr. Funt himself hosted the program until 1992. His son, Peter Funt succeed him as the show’s host until it was canceled in 2004. READ FULL STORY
The spinny chairs will be put into storage and Blake Shelton and Adam Levine will have to move their man-crush to Twitter, but the music won’t end once The Voice crowns a season 6 champion.

We all have our favorite clone on Orphan Black. For many, it is funky bisexual scientist Cosima. For others — like myself — stressed out soccer mom Alison gets top billing. And still others gravitate toward punk protagonist Sarah. But if you ask the woman who plays them all, Tatiana Maslany, who her favorite clone is lately, you’ll get a surprising answer: Rachel.

It’s safe to say that Glee‘s Rachel (Lea Michele) and Blaine (Darren Criss) both enjoy a nice Broadway show tune.

In this exclusive clip, Rachel and Blaine perform “Broadway Baby” from Sondheim’s Follies for NYADA’s Carmen Tibideaux (guest star Whoopi Goldberg) at their mid-winter critique. Watch below.

DirecTV customers will have The Weather Channel back on their lineup starting Wednesday.
The move comes nearly three months after the TV distributor dropped the channel after the two parties failed to reach a carrier agreement. The financial terms of their new contract were not disclosed, but in a release, The Weather Channel said they had “agreed to reduce reality programming by half” on weekdays. READ FULL STORY
Conan O’Brien is going to Comic-Con — in 2015.
TBS announced Monday that Conan will broadcast an entire week of shows (July 8-12, 2015) from San Diego’s Spreckels Theater. (So perhaps we can take Conan off the David Letterman replacement lists?)
This marks the first time a late-night program has ever broadcast from San Diego during the event, the network said.
This year, Comic-Con will take place from July 17-24.
Bates Motel has just been booked for an extended stay at A&E.
The network announced Monday it has renewed the Vera Farmiga-led drama for a 10-episode third season, set to begin production this fall.
The show’s second season, which recently revealed a huge (and completely disturbing) twist, premiered a little over month ago, notching 4.6 million viewers, according to numbers from the network.
Bates, which also stars Freddie Highmore as Norman, airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.
