Comic-Con: TV's 'Brave New Warriors' on unsexy moments, fan fiction, and more

The handsome was on display Thursday afternoon at Entertainment Weekly’s Brave New Warriors Comic-Con panel, moderated by Lynette Rice. Squeals from the audience were expected, of course, but even the panelists seemed completely delighted by each others aesthetics. “I just wanted to speak for the fans and say, ‘Tyler, you are so sexy,'” said Grimm’s David Guintoli to Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey. Twice.

Okay, so it might have been tongue in cheek. Still, these guys know how to work a room, even if they do get paid to brood, as Guintoli said. Take a look at some of the best moments from EW’s panel with Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), David Guintoli (Grimm), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).  READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Glenn and Maggie lock lips in exclusive super-hot photo and GIF

They had some tough times in season 3 of The Walking Dead, what with her being forced to strip down by the Governor and him not being able to get over it. But Maggie and Glenn finally worked it out and even got engaged before all was said and done. How are things between the pair when things pick up in season 4? Pretty damn fine, it seems. “It’s in a really safe place,” says the woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, of the relationship. Steven Yeun, a.k.a. Glenn, agrees. “They’re in a good groove, living as close to what normal life should be,” says Yeun. “Whatever you can call that in this world.”

In fact, Cohan and Yeun got into the mood, so to speak, during a recent Entertainment Weekly photo shoot to show us just how great things are. They are lip-smacking, face-sucking, full-body-embracing great! Click on the “Full Size Image” button above to check out the rest of the smooch in all its full-sized glory. And then look below to see their passion in animated GIF form! Let’s just hope there are still condoms available in the zombie apocalypse, or else baby Judith Grimes may soon be having play dates.

'The Walking Dead': Daryl Dixon is a masked man in exclusive season 4 photo

The producers of AMC’s The Walking Dead have promised even scarier zombies and another new threat to rock the survivors when the hit cable drama returns for season 4 in October. But they did not warn us of the possibility that DARYL DIXON MAY NO LONGER HAVE A FACE!

Former cast members react to 'The Wire' being named the greatest TV show ever by EW

The TV landscape has been filled with cultural touchstones beloved by an entire generation, but when Entertainment Weekly revealed its list of the 100 Greatest TV Shows Ever (as part of our current The 100 All-Time Greatest issue) it was not The Simpsons, Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Sex & The City, Saturday Night Live nor any other show that begins with the letter S that topped the list. Instead it was a little-watched HBO drama that could not even crack 1 million viewers an episode for its final season.

Created by David Simon, The Wire started in 2002 as a tale of the Baltimore drug trade, but evolved over its five sensational seasons to tackle corruption in all departments of big city life — education, politics, and media included. And now it has been dubbed by EW the best TV show ever. I happened to be on the set of The Walking Dead right as the news broke and was able to get reactions from two former Wire — and current Walking Dead  — cast members: Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., who played doomed dealer D’Angelo Barksdale, and Chad Coleman, who was reformed killer Cutty.

'Walking Dead': Epic season 4 poster

Walking-Dead-Season-4-Banner.jpg

AMC has just unveiled the first The Walking Dead season 4 teaser poster (link below), which will be displayed as a banner at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. The image has Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) front and center, while Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) — on a horse! — fight off a sea of walkers. Everybody has their weapon of choice. The full image with all the characters is too epic for a mere blog, so here’s a link to the complete full-size image. The Walking Dead returns to AMC this October.

'Game of Thrones' sets another piracy record

Game of Thrones was the must-watch show of the season — and it has the illegal-download numbers to prove it.

According to TorrentFreak, the HBO fantasy series’ third season is the most-pirated show of spring 2013, with 5.2 million downloads. The Big Bang Theory lands at No. 2 with 2.9 million, followed by How I Met Your Mother (2.85 million), The Walking Dead (2.7 million) and rookie series Hannibal (2.1 million).

This is just the latest piracy record set by GoT, which was named the most illegally downloaded TV series of 2012. When EW spoke with HBO programming president Michael Lombardo in March, he saw the dubious record as somewhat of an honor.

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

'Walking Dead' blunder: AMC doesn't know what network airs 'The Voice'

AMC is justifiably very proud of its Walking Dead ratings. The apocalyptic zombie drama is the top-rated scripted series among adults 18-49 this season, beating every show on cable and broadcast. In fact, those broadcast hits are apparently so insignificant, AMC can’t even keep straight what networks they’re on!

In a full-page ad in today’s New York Times, AMC touted its ratings dominance to Madison Avenue. But while dissing broadcast rivals, AMC put NBC’s The Voice on ABC and ABC’s Modern Family on Fox. It’s okay, AMC, they’re just typos, it’s not the end of the world (but it is pretty funny).

UPDATE! In response to EW’s post, AMC issued this statement: “It appears our fact checking department was overrun by zombies. We have the utmost respect for these shows and networks.”

'Walking Dead': Dallas Roberts talks about Milton's big moment and the original scenes with Andrea we DIDN'T see

Mild-manned Milton was obsessed with learning how zombies act and what they think after being turned. Well, he got some first-hand experience on The Walking Dead’s season 3 finale after being stabbed by the Governor, bleeding out, dying, turning into a zombie, and then biting Andrea (forcing her to kill herself before she turned as well). We caught up with the man who played Milton, Dallas Roberts, who talked about portraying the impeccably dressed and coiffed assistant to the Governor while also revealing how the entire sequence was originally shot before the cast was summoned a few months later to return and re-film Milton and Andrea’s harrowing encounter.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So I kind of guessed you weren’t going to make it out of this season alive once I heard you had been cast on CBS’ Unforgettable.
DALLAS ROBERTS: That was a good guess. I was obviously dead by the time Unforgettable came up. It’s so nice to not have to spin or lie anymore, like, “Well see what happens with Milton in season 4!” It’s nice to not have to pull that off anymore.

EW: I actually thought there was a good chance that Milton might be the one to kill the Governor, so that shows you what I know.
ROBERTS: I’ve heard that from several people, and I think that Milton easily could have turned into some sort of power-broker there, but they obviously decided the Governor was too valuable to kill right now. READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead' finale breaks series records

The-Walking-Dead-Finale-Andrea.jpg

The Walking Dead has done it again.

The third season finale of the AMC zombie hit delivered another series-high rating Sunday night — despite the Easter holiday (when TV viewership tends to dip) and despite airing head-to-head against the premiere of another geek-titan series (HBO’s Game of Thrones — which also set a series record last night).

The finale was seen by 12.4 million viewers, just barely edging out the show’s previous record viewership of 12.3 million from its February mid-season premiere. The show also had 8.1 million adults 18-49, making it the week’s top program. This is close to yesterday’s ratings prediction and continues the show’s trend of setting new records for each of its season finales.

The Walking Dead has been a ratings phenomenon this season, averaging a 5.6 rating among adults 18-49 — higher than any other show on television.

Also, AMC indulged in a bit of smack-talk against Thrones. AMC pointed out that its post-Walking Dead talk show The Talking Dead with Chris Hardwick delivered more viewers (5.2 million) than the first telecast of the Thrones premiere.

“Two words: Grateful. Dead. It’s a joy that we get to work with such tremendous talent to make The Walking Dead and Talking Dead come to life for audiences that continue to engage and grow,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president. “In just three seasons, The Walking Dead has become a pop-culture phenomenon, entertaining millions of passionate viewers and obliterating traditional lines between cable and broadcast television.” EW’s recap is here.
