'How To Get Away With Murder' Season 1 Episode 6 Recap: A Dweeb In D-bag's Clothing

October 31st, 2014 10:43am EDT
How to get Away With Murder
After weeks of being left out of the murder club, tonight we finally get a glimpse into Asher Millstone, who is really just a complete dweeb in douchebag’s clothing. Asher provides some much serious comic relief on the show and is also perhaps the “purest” of the kids. Sure, he’s the poster boy for white privilege and wears it proudly on his button down-sweater combos, but there’s something also so sweet about his awfulness.

Asher may have grown up as a rich, entitled little Main Line brat (I’m assuming he grew up on the Main Line, which is a very rich and old area of Philadelphia suburbs)...

'Scandal' Review: Best Moments From 'An Innocent Man'

'Scandal' Review: Best Moments From 'An Innocent Man'
There are no innocent men on Scandal. Or women. Many of the characters like to claim they wear “white hats” and have high opinions of their own moralities, but we see each and every one of them commit atrocious acts in the name of getting their way. “An Innocent Man” plays on that duality between characters that want to do good things but are constantly lured into hurting people. In four seasons, most of these characters have yet to grasp that, but they’re finally starting. A few characters began to step out of their “good person” mode and towards the first strong character development in a...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: Why Did Damon Return Without Bon
The Vampire Diaries season 6 started off with the adorable and intriguing pairing of Bonnie and Damon. Their bickering has been the highlight of this season-so far. Last night's episode ripped our duo apart. One had to stay with the devilishly charming, but totally psychotic, Kai. The other got to return home on The Vampire Diaries season 6. We'll give you one guess to get it right. Hint: the one that always sacrifices themself did it again.

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries Sal's Sister

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries
In the second of two new Impractical Jokers episodes this week, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr complicate job interviews, somebody drops their pants, and Murr commits the cardinal sin in the Book of Vulcano by once again involving Sal's sister in the anarchy. Not bad for a season finale.

Challenge #1: Help Unwanted
The Jokers are going into job interviews with resumes created by each other and lines being fed to them; their ultimate goal is to get the job, no matter how idiotic the other three guys make them look. Murr makes a Y2K reference and claims he spent three weeks in a "job simulator" at Goo...

Previously on, Survivor – the tribes switched up, leaving the Coyopa tribe with 3 pairs of loved ones and a single, while the new Hunahpu contained 5 couples and just one pair.

After Tribal Council, Dale was angered at the vote ejecting his daughter Kelley. His only hope to stay in the game is to pretend that the icon he found early in game is the Hidden Immunity Idol.

The Hunahpu’s nervous...

Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity
CBS's Mom - a 2014 People's Choice Award Favorite New TV Comedy nominee - is back for its second season tonight, continuing the dysfunctional but well-meaning escapades of the Plunkett family.

The new episodes don't pick up immediately after last season's surprisingly touching finale. "We ended last season with Violet giving away her baby," she explained. "In season two, you see Violet dealing with the ramifications of that decision. She's...

'The Middle' Season 6, Episode 5 Review: The Weirdest Halloween Yet

October 30th, 2014 10:12am EDT
The Middle
As a sixth season sitcom with a comfortable timeslot, “The Middle” could very easily coast along on doing the same thing over and over. But that is not this show’s m.o. It is allergic to change, and its viewers are better off for its commitment to character development. The important things about “The Middle” stay the same: each Halloween episode is simply named “Halloween” and then “Halloween II” and now “Halloween V”; and holiday episodes continue to be its forte. But the specific elements that make each holiday episode so great are new and exciting each time.
