'The Bachelorette' episode 6: 'If you say you're gonna do better, then I guess I've gotta wait for you to do better'

You know what Tom Petty says, Andi: The waiting is the hardest part. But I think you’re going to be waiting a long time for the dude referenced above (no spoilers here—stay tuned for my full recap later) to stop being such a major d-bag. Then again, you seem to have a thing for major d-bags… otherwise why would Josh still be in the mix? In other news, I cannot believe it took this long for Team Bachelorette to work a lie-detector test into the show—brava, as they say in Italy. As for the suitor who admitted while strapped to a polygraph that he does not wash his hands after using the bathroom? I think that stomach bug you suffered on the same date was karma catching up with you. Am I right, fellow germaphobes?

'The Bachelorette' exclusive: Watch Cody confront Nick

Nobody mocks Cody and gets away with it. Nobody.

For most rose lovers, Cody is just a body builder Andi barely associates with — yet doesn’t feel the need to send home. But on tonight’s Bachelorette, expect Cody to do more than sit back, flex his muscles, and blend into the background.

We’ve got an exclusive clip of Cody’s first confrontation with none other than series frontrunner Nick. After the guys decide to call out the way Nick feels he deserves more than, well, everyone else, Cody takes things one step further: Putting those muscles of his to good use, Cody get in Nick’s face and makes sure that Mr. Perfect knows that it’s never OK to mock a man in a pink/purple shirt.

'The Bachelorette' sneak peek: Boyz II Men's Wanya Morris tolerates Andi's vocals -- EXCLUSIVE

Sometimes you want to hide your eyes when you watch The Bachelorette. Other times, you need to wrap that pillow around your head and cover your ears.

'The Bachelorette': Watch the guys' deleted introduction videos

When The Bachelorette premiered last week, there was a little something missing. Thanks to a 90-minute time frame, the show had to cut its usual “Meet the Guys” videos, which meant viewers had to pick their favorite suitors based on nothing more than a limo arrival and a cocktail party.

But now, the guys’ introductions are available online, so before you head into tonight’s episode, you can properly educate yourself on a few of the men, their jobs, their passions, and how very excited they are that Andi is the Bachelorette. And perhaps most importantly, you can find out why Marquel made Andi eat cookies last week.

Watch a few of the best introductions below, and find the rest of them here:

'The Bachelorette': Chris Harrison explains the show's handling of Eric Hill's tragic death

Fans of The Bachelorette have now seen how the show decided to handle the tragic death of 31-year-old contestant Eric Hill, who fought for Andi Dorfman’s heart before dying of injuries sustained in a paragliding accident. The accident occurred in April 2014, after Hill had already left the show, but figuring out how to honor Hill’s time with Dorfman was something the show did not take lightly.

And as viewers saw in the season premiere, Hill’s passing was addressed immediately, with a quick dedication, before the show kicked off, still featuring Hill as one of the 25 men competing for Dorfman’s heart. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette': Chris Harrison compares Andi's season to Juan Pablo's, teases 'so many guys falling for her'

Chris Harrison is confident that Andi Dorfman will win over the hearts of pretty much everyone. “If you weren’t before, I think you’ll quickly become an Andi fan,” Harrison said. And starting tonight, that theory will be put to the test when Andi — the girl who told Juan Pablo it wasn’t “OK”  — embarks on her journey to find love.

We caught up with Harrison to talk about how Andi has approached the experience and what viewers can expect from the lawyer who can’t dance:

Chris Harrison: The death of 'Bachelorette' contestant Eric Hill will be handled with respect

The cast and crew of The Bachelorette season 10 have been mourning the loss of contestant Eric Hill, who died of injuries sustained during a paragliding accident last month. As the May 19 premiere approaches, host Chris Harrison says producers are now trying to figure out the best, most respectful way to deal with the tragedy on the show.

“It’s a horrible, horrible thing. He was taken away too young,” Harrison tells People. “It’s something we’ve never dealt with on the show. It didn’t only affect our cast, but also our crew who worked closely with him.”

Harrison says Hill was “a big part of the show.” The 31 year-old had already shot his scenes for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s season when a parachute failure led to his death. “We all took a moment to step back and reflect and respect Eric and his family,” Harrison says. “We wanted to really take it all in and let ourselves mourn a little bit.” READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Amy Schumer reveals the too-offensive sketch Comedy Central wouldn't let her show

Amy Schumer has no problem pushing buttons on her new show Inside Amy Schumer. But there are a select few buttons her channel, Comedy Central, deemed simply unpushable. Schumer stopped by the TV Recap show on Entertainment Weekly Radio (channel 105 on SiriusXM) and revealed to Jessica Shaw and me one controversial sketch for her program that Comedy Central wouldn’t let her air. “I wanted to write a sketch where a guy tried to kill himself and had a failed suicide attempt, but then still had to come to work on Monday,” said Schumer. “And everyone knew, but he didn’t get his work done and he is like, ‘Well, I didn’t think I was going to be here.’ And we wanted it to be like he was a hipster — like, what would a failed suicide be as a hipster? And I think they were like, ‘that’s too sensitive’ or ‘too personal’.”

It also sounds too hilarious. So what other topics has her channel deemed off-limits? “The sort of hot-button stuff switches,” said Schumer. They want you to stay away from Muslim stuff a little bit. And, like, rape, I guess. And domestic violence.” So there you have it! To hear the entire interview with Schumer — in which she also discusses her take on penis photos and reveals whom she smoked pot through an apple with — just click on the audio player below. It is soooooo worth the click. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Mike Fleiss reveals he wants to bring 'Bachelor Pad' back in 2014

While Desiree is spending this summer avoiding bad white boy rapping and suitors obsessed with hashtags and high fives on The Bachelorette, fans of the franchise have been mourning the loss of the guiltiest of guilty pleasures, Bachelor Pad, which will not be returning to ABC’s schedule this August, where it has resided for the past three years.

But Bachelor/Bachelorette exec producer Mike Fleiss dropped a bombshell on Jessica Shaw and me when he called in to chat on Entertainment Weekly’s new SiriusXM channel 105. “I love Bachelor Pad,” said Fleiss. “I thought it might be good to give it a break for a little while — let the fans starve for it a little bit so that next summer when it comes back…” WAIT, WHAT?!? Bachelor Pad is coming back? “I have a good feeling it will be back next summer,” revealed Fleiss. “I really wanted to give it a break because I did not feel like we had enough superstars to populate the pad.” By “populate” we’re pretty sure he means spread sexually transmitted diseases, but there’s no need to get into technicalities. The point is, plenty of bimbos and himbos could be back in work in 2014! Mike Fleiss: job creator!

To hear Fleiss talk about the return of Bachelor Pad, the biggest differences between The Bachelor and Bachelorette, the horrific “Right Reasons” rap from last week, and all the drama set to go down on Monday night with the arrival of one of the suitor’s girlfriends, then click on the audio player below for more.

InsideTV Podcast: Norman Reedus previews season 4 of 'The Walking Dead': 'They've introduced a way to make the zombies scary again'

We still have over four months until the return of The Walking Dead, but it’s never too early to check in with one of the survivors as to what’s going on and what to expect. Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, called in from Senoia, Georgia (where the show is filming) to talk to Jenna Morasca and me on EW’s SiriusXM channel and update us on the progress of season 4. “The scripts this season are just amazing,” says Reedus. “It feels like we’ve shot about three movies already. It’s super intense.”

Reedus also backs up exec producer Gale Anne Hurd’s comment about the zombies becoming more of a threat when the show returns. “They’ve introduced a way to make the zombies scary again,” he says. “They’re terrifying. The new threat is just unreal.” Reedus also tells people not to worry about the show now being on its third showrunner in four seasons, with Scott Gimple replacing Glen Mazzara (who replaced Frank Darabont). “The structure of the writing is a bit different,” says Reedus. “It’s so intense. These are our best scripts so far.” To listen to our entire interview with Norman Reedus, just click on the audio player below.

But that’s not all. Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany called in to EW Radio before the BBC America clone drama’s season finale to chat with Jessica Shaw and me about playing seven different distinctive characters — often in the same scene. What was her audition like? Which clone is her favorite to play? What music does she listen to in order to get in the mood for each character? And which clone is most like the actress herself? Fans of the show will definitely want to check out our chat with Tatiana.

Last but not least, the evil genius behind The Bachelor and Bachelorette, Mike Fleiss, called in to talk about the new season, unfortunate white boy rapping, the differences between the two franchises, and dealing with spoilers. He also broke some news: Bachelor Pad may be back in 2014! Find out why it’s taking the summer off in 2013 but should return next year. READ FULL STORY
