Hell on Wheels fans may want to keep an eye on the Twitter account of Quigley, the horse star Anson Mount rides on the AMC Western, come Saturday night. Odds are he’ll have a strong opinion about the scene in our sneak peek below. Cullen (Mount) and Elam (Common) run into a bit of trouble when they forge deep into Indian territory to secure a new lumber source after a railroad accident. In the clip, Jimmy Two Squaws (Brent Briscoe), a fur trader who became adept at marrying into tribes to consolidate his business networks and is frequently hired by railroad scouts and traders to negotiate with tribes on their behalf, delivers a request to Cullen from Red Bear (Adam Beach), chief of the Kiowa.

This certainly isn’t the first time tears have been shed during a challenge, but Nany and Jonna’s jaunt through an electrified obstacle course on tonight’s Rivals II is so wimpy that fellow competitor Frank deems it “the most pathetic show[ing] I’ve ever seen on a Challenge,” and host TJ Lavin calls it “pitiful” (while holding a foofy little white dog, no less!). By the end of the exclusive clip below, you might be crying too — from laughter.

Earlier this summer, Jeff Probst officially broke the news on Entertainment Weekly Radio that the 27th season of Survivor — titled Blood Vs. Water — would feature returning Survivor players and their loved ones. And now we can officially reveal that one of those pairs will be Survivor: One World’s Kat Edorsson and her boyfriend, Big Brother season 12 champ Hayden Moss. And the two talk about it for the first time right here! While players from both Survivor and Big Brother have appeared on fellow CBS reality competition show The Amazing Race — and a relative of Survivor’s Russell and Brandon Hantz, Willie, played on last summer’s Big Brother — Hayden will become the first person to have appeared on both programs.
In the video interview below (which was shot on location), I asked the couple which show is harder, Survivor or Big Brother. “I will answer that question exactly in about 39 days,” said Hayden the day before the game began. “Really, I’ll be the only person ever that can answer that question. So I’m excited to test it out and see what Survivor is all about.” READ FULL STORY
Tonight’s episode of Entertainment Weekly and Sundance Channel’s series The Writer’s Room sits down with New Girl creator Liz Meriwether, star Jake Johnson, and executive producers Brett Baer and Dave Finkel.
Talking about the first kiss between Nick (Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in Jan. 29 episode, “Cooler,” Meriwether says, “We wanted it to be messy,” and Johnson himself admits that he was surprised the two characters’ showmance heated up as quickly as it did. But which of the loftmates was originally slated to kiss Jess at the end of a drunken night of True American? Find out in the video below! READ FULL STORY
Tonight’s episode of The Challenge: Rivals II is called “Mortuusequusphobia.” Now, you might be wondering, What is mortuusequusphobia? Well, for Georgia peach Jemmye, it’s 57 varieties of horror. Yes, TV fans, Jemmye has a shriek-inducing fear of ketchup — a phobia that low blow-throwing ex-boyfriend Knight has absolutely zero qualms about exploiting. Like an average episode of MTV’s long-running reality hybrid, the confrontation in question begins with your run-of-the-mill murder threats… and then things get really twisted. Watch the red terror below. READ FULL STORY
In the latest iteration of the action-adventure-reality genre, the CW has a late entry with the new series Capture, a man-versus-man-versus-wild competition set in an Inspector Gadget-like forest compound.
“You will hunt and be hunted. You will remain here for as long as you survive the game.” These are the foreboding words of Captured host Luke Tipple (also an Australian marine biologist, according to his website ).
The new CW competition series — premiering Tuesday — pits 12 teams of two against each other in an enclosed wilderness compound, where they fight each other, hunger pangs, unfortunate space-agey pantsuits, and bad weather in order to avoid being captured. When two teams are caught, the remaining teams vote to decide who must leave. The prize? $250,000.
Here’s a preview of the show, which looks like a real-life version of The Hunger Games meets The Blair Witch Project, or maybe it’s just the heavy panting and life-or-death-like-gamesman atmosphere?

Season 3 of The Walking Dead was a bit of a rough road for Carl Grimes, what with him having to watch his mother die and then put a bullet in her brain so she did not come back as a zombie. Oh, and then he had to sit there while his dad went off the proverbial deep end. Will things be any better when AMC’s zombie drama picks up again for season 4 on Oct. 13? And where does the relationship between Papa Grimes and son stand?
“When Lori died the group was a lot smaller,” says Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) in the video interview below, which was taken during Riggs’ Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). “So at the end of the season about 50 people [from Woodbury] got off that bus. And so now that there’s 50 more people in the group, Rick and Carl might have some more time to get closer together. Or not.” Way to be cagey!
To see exclusive footage from EW’s Walking Dead cover shoot and to hear Riggs talk more about where things stand for Carl (as well as what it’s like to go hang out with zombies every day on set), just click on the video player below.

So many mysteries when it comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead. How did the zombie apocalypse begin? Why is everyone infected? Are there any safe areas left? Also, how is it that crossbow-wielding badass Daryl Dixon never manages to run out of arrows? We went straight to the source for answers and asked the man who plays Dixon, Norman Reedus, for an explanation.
“I try to recycle the arrows as much as possible,” says Reedus in the video interview below while taking a break from his Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). He’s got a point there as you often do see Daryl pull an arrow out of the skull of a walker he’s just put down. But still, with that few arrows at his disposal, and considering all the times he isn’t able to reuse one, it would seem he would have run out by now, right? “They go on runs and we raid places and this is Georgia so that is one of the weapons that people hunt with,” says Reedus. “So it’s not unheard of to find more arrows.” Reedus also assumes there is off-screen replenishment going on. “When you show this large of a time frame, there’s a lot of things that are sort of understood. You never see us go to the bathroom, but we do that.”
Reedus also spoke eloquently about the evolution of his character and how his on-screen brother Merle’s death has changed Daryl. As Reedus explains, with Merle gone, “Daryl has the opportunity to become the man he was never going to be.” To hear more from the man on all things Daryl Dixon, click on the video player below.

Throughout the third season of Falling Skies, Hal Mason has been secretly struggling with a piece of alien tech controlling his actions.

Carol Burnett fans have been looking forward to her appearance on Hot In Cleveland and her reunion with Mama’s Family costar Betty White for months now.

When BBC America’s Copper wrapped up its first season last October, we left Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) in a pretty dark place. The Civil War-era New York police detective had just suffered betrayals from his wife and his best friend, and the last scene of the finale had Corcoran turning to drugs to deal with his despair.
Copper‘s sophomore season picks up four months later, a jump that new showrunner Thomas Kelly decided to take “to get a fresh start but not move ahead too far out so we wouldn’t have any drastic changes to explain.” The struggles Copper‘s characters faced at the end of season 1 are still present in their lives, but they’re also moving on — season 2 has a theme of reconstruction, both for individual characters and for America, as the Civil War comes to an end.
Below is an exclusive clip from the first few minutes of Copper‘s season 2 premiere, which starts off with a rare serene moment outside the city, but fair warning: It gets bloody and violent pretty quickly.
