What to expect from 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver' -- VIDEO

John Oliver has already promised to give viewers insight on major news stories happening around the world…“eventually.” Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, which eschews the 24-hour news cycle for a weekly series that curates the top stories — or at least those with the best punch lines — from the previous seven days, is set to premiere April 27 at 11 p.m. ET on HBO.

Until then, the show has posted a few new clips that provide a glimpse at the kind of humor we can expect from the Daily Show alum’s new venture. The two videos feature Last Week web producer Josh Gondelman and parody the GOP’s recent ad campaign targeting hipsters, women and minorities:

'Grey's Anatomy' doc Kevin McKidd, 'Office' alum set for 'Franklin & Bash' guest spots -- EXCLUSIVE

Grey’s Anatomy doc Kevin McKidd is checking in to Franklin & Bash — and he’s bringing his real-life Scottish accent with him!

EW has learned exclusively that McKidd, best known for playing Dr. Owen Hunt on ABC’s veteran medical drama, has been tapped for a guest spot as a man named Albert Daugherty, who is also the Duke of Weddington. Per the storyline, the testy landowner — who is described as the kind of guy who would rather settle a dispute with a claymore than a discussion — crosses paths with the lawyer duo played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer after he finds himself in a spat with his neighbor.

Additionally, EW can report that Office alum Creed Bratton is set to appear as a judge in a separate episode. His character, Judge Semmer, is described as an aging athlete whose career ended in the cul-de-sac of family court.

Both actors’ episodes will air during Franklin & Bash‘s upcoming fourth season, which is slated for this summer on TNT.

'Gotham': First image of Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock

We can say this about Donal Logue’s new look in Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham…he’s certainly not in Charming anymore. The leather jacket. The detective hat. We dig it.

As previously reported, Logue, arguably known best for his work on Sons of Anarchy, will play Det. Harvey Bullock in the buzzy Fox project. Bullock is the rough-around-the-edges partner and mentor of Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), the character at the center of the series.

The Gotham pilot is executive produced by Mentalist EP Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon (CSI). Cannon is also directing the pilot, which is currently in production.

'Reign' star Anna Popplewell reveals [spoiler!] is getting married, talks Francis and Mary's 'happily ever after'

Reign‘s newest royal couple, Francis and Mary, just got back from their honeymoon, and things are already looking grim. For starters, Bash is still in love with Mary — even though he ended the last episode by kissing a hot hunter — and Lola has admitted that she is pregnant with Francis’ child. Add all that to the fact that King Henry just humped a woman out of a window to her death, and we’ve got some very exciting drama ahead of us.

To talk about what comes next for the very pregnant Lola, and what Olivia was saying about the darkness, we caught up with Anna Popplewell (Lola). She told us all about the love triangle, Henry’s “misbehaviors,” and an upcoming wedding: READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' finale moves off Sunday night for first time in 12 years


The 28th Survivor season finale and reunion show is heading back to its roots — Wednesday night. Entertainment Weekly has learned that the Survivor: Cagayan three-hour extravaganza will air on CBS, May 21 from 8-11pm. Richard Hatch won his million dollar check on a Wednesday night back in the summer of 2000, then the show (and the finale/reunion combo) moved to Thursdays.

It went back to Thursday for Survivor: Thailand later in 2002, but then returned to Sunday after that for Survivor: The Amazon is 2003. And that is where the final episode and reunion have stayed ever since…until now. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' producer on how Suicide Squad episode came to be

The long-awaited Suicide Squad episode of Arrow is here!

In the episode, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) for a mission to retrieve a dangerous chemical agent that poses a huge threat to the country. The catch? He’s forced to work with the team of criminals that comic book fans know as the Suicide Squad. Among them: Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Shrapnel. And, of course, his ex-wife Lyla (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), who executive producer Marc Guggenheim said was the catalyst for the episode.

“We wanted to do a Lyla-Diggle story,” he said. “We sort of established this relationship at the end of last year, and Diggle and Lyla [got] back together in episode 6 of this year. And it started off with, ‘What would be something good to have them fight about?’ And someone pitched in the writer’s room: ‘What if Lyla was involved with the Suicide Squad and Diggle was not approving of it? That would be a nice conflict for them.’” And it is. READ FULL STORY
