Gleeks, here’s something you already know: Ricky Martin is hot like fire. You’ve probably already seen his performance of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” and he’s even steamier on next week’s episode of Glee, titled “The Spanish Teacher.” EW got an early peek at the episode, in which Martin plays David Martinez, a night school Spanish teacher who helps Will (Matthew Morrison) when a student complains about his teaching abilities. But that’s only one part of a pretty plot-packed hour of Glee. Here are the highlights [MILD SPOILER ALERTS]… READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Who would win a Xena vs. Spartacus duel to the death? Lucy Lawless and Liam McIntyre argue it out
Spartacus kicks off again tonight with a new season, a new title (Spartacus: Vengeance) and a new leading man (Liam McIntyre, taking over for Andy Whitfield). But don’t worry, the show hasn’t changed too much. After all, there are still plenty of orgies, decapitations, and decapitations during orgies! In celebration of the Starz drama’s return this evening, McIntyre and costar Lucy Lawless stopped by the InsideTV Podcast, and wouldn’t you know it — all hell broke loose! In addition to discussing the ins and outs — no pun intended — of season 2 (which included McIntyre stabbing a man in the penis for his very first scene), the duo was grilled on a variety of topics. Such as: How does Lucy feel about losing the coveted Celebrity Duets title to Alfonso Ribeiro? And what kind of Super Bowl prediction is Patriots fan Liam ready to make while sitting here in the enemy territory of New York City? But we saved the best question for last: Who would win in a battle between Spartacus and Lucy’s iconic warrior princess, Xena? Not surprisingly, our two guests have very differing opinions on the matter. READ FULL STORY
Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein take on the dog park in new season of 'Portlandia' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

But when it comes to man’s best friend, they take things a few steps further.
In this exclusive clip for EW.com readers, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s Portlandia alter egos make your neighbors with the Yorkie in a pink sweater look like Santa Claus.

The return of 'Arrested Development': Tony Hale talks Lucille 2 and hopes for an iPad hand -- EXCLUSIVE
Since news broke last week that Netflix officially picked up Arrested Development for a 2013 run, fans have been taking a victory lap around the Internet that the five-year will-they-or-won’t-they revival roller coaster appears to be finished once and for all. EW landed an exclusive chat with Buster Bluth himself, a.k.a. Tony Hale. Of the long wait for Arrested‘s return, Hale laughed, “In this situation, Buster would have been in the hospital medicated.” What else did Hale have to say about everyone’s favorite seal-phobic, over-educated MotherBoy? Will Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) return? And what was Hale’s favorite Buster moment so far? Keep reading… READ FULL STORY
That’s right. As unlikely as it may seem, Darth Maul, the glowering Sith warrior who fell to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s blade at the end of Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace actually survived being cut in half and will return to George Lucas’s still unfolding space saga on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars (read our recaps here!) in spring 2012.
With his red-and-black tattooed face, Bronson-esque stoicism, Dervish-like mixed martial-arts moves (courtesy of Ray Park), and legendary double-bladed lightsaber—the coolest birthday present for 10-year-old boys in the summer of 1999—Maul was easily the most striking character in The Phantom Menace. (TPM is due to be released in theaters with a 3-D facelift February 10, 2012). And he only had three lines in the movie! Maul was a blunt instrument, a weapon of pure aggression to carry out the bidding of ūber Sith Lord Darth Sidious (a.k.a the future Emperor Palpatine), when he wasn’t yet ready to emerge from the shadows. Think of Maul like the Star Wars equivalent of Daniel Craig’s Bond. Only, did we mention he had a frickin’ double-bladed lightsaber?
When he was vivisected courtesy of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Maul immediately took his place among pop culture figures who’d also been cut in half: Bishop in Aliens, Quint in Jaws, Tony Goldwyn in Ghost, the Black Dahlia. Needless to say, we never expected to see him again, right?
Wrong! Last January a Clone Wars arc featuring a relative of Maul’s, the duped, sympathetic Nightbrother of Dathomir Savage Opress teased a hazy image of Maul in a crystal ball. Did this mean the former Sith Warrior was still alive? Indeed, and EW’s got an exclusive video first look at Maul’s animated form. Take a walk on the Dark Side and check it out after the break: READ FULL STORY
