Emma Slater Dishes On 'Dancing With The Stars' Season 19
ABC's Dancing with the Stars is back for Season 19, and Emma Slater is hoping to score a Mirrorball Trophy win with her new partner, world.

Last season, Emma's stint on the dance floor was cut short when Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams retired from the competition due to health issues. With that limited amount of time, was she able to learn anything from working with Billy Dee that's helped her in working with Michael?

"Loads of things," she told us. "I think it's really about just choreographing to your partner's ability and your partner's needs. What I learned with Billy, I learned ...

The Best 'Saturday Night Live' Episodes Of Season 39

September 22nd, 2014 2:00pm EDT
Miley Cyrus
With “Saturday Night Live” on the cusp of beginning its latest season, we will be spending the next several days looking back at the best of last season.

Today, we're covering the best episodes.

1. Miley Cyrus (10/5/13) – The great thing about a host like Miley Cyrus is that her personal life offers so much material for “SNL” to mine and she is self-aware enough to actually allow the show to make fun of it. Thus she was game to cover the hoopla over her VMA performance and “Wrecking Ball” video. The real fun came when making fun of Miley was mashed up with making fun of Congress, in “We...

What To Watch For In 'The Voice' Season 7
It's that time of year again. The Voice is back, and now on its third lineup of superstar coaches. After three years, six completed seasons and one Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, NBC's singing competition has climbed to the top of the TV charts. So how could it possibly get any better? Here are five things we'll be looking for in season seven.

1. Can the new coaches coach?

This is the most obvious one. Not only did Shakira and Usher have chemistry with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton from an entertainment standpoint, they were capable of advising their artists, whic...

With that said, let’s focus on some of the top moments...

'Ray Donovan,' Season 2 Episode 11 Recap: Night of the Two Dozen Cliffhangers

September 22nd, 2014 10:21am EDT
Ray Donovan
You've got to hand it to "Ray Donovan"- the show's got some serious chutzpah. Or, moxie, spunk, cojones- whatever the appropriate Hollywood underworld slang might be.

Because every penultimate episode of every TV season ends on a cliffhanger. But "Ray Donovan," and "Rodef," it's own second-to-last ep, is not satisfied with a single cliffhanger.

"Rodef" wants every cliffhanger, ever, all smushed into a single TV episode like a "to be continued" buffet.

So at the end of "Rodef," we're left with the following questions:

Will Abby kill Cookie Brown?

Will Ray kill Cookie Brown?

Will R...

'Masters of Sex' Recap: Top 5 Moments from 'One For The Money, Two For The Show'

'Masters of Sex' Recap: Top 5 Moments from 'One For The Money, T
Here are the top 5 moments from “One for the Money, Two for the Show:”

Historical Context

One of the highlights of any period television series is when real world events affect the lives of the characters. Mad Men famously made the death of Marilyn Monroe personally affect many of the office characters. We’ve seen this a couple of times during Masters of Sex, especially in “Fight,” but this episode was overflowing with historical events, each of which effected the characters drastically.

For fantasy obsessed Flo, the news of Clark Gable’s heart attack is devastating, leading her to conti...

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: S6 Ep10 The Day Of Jacqueline

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: S6 Ep10 The Day Of Ja
Just when you thought it was safe to go back over the George Washington Bridge: Jac is back.

The former cast member does very little in this episode except reintroduce herself to the audience as the loving mother of autistic four-year-old Nicholas. She’s still on the housewife periphery though, as her only contact is with sometime-housewife Kathy, who’s building a house that they visit. Jacqueline tells Kathy that she’s reached out to Teresa Guidice in her time of need via text message; apparently the two women have not spoken in a while. She says that even though they no longer have a rel...

'The Strain' Season 1, Episode 11 Recap: A Trip to the Master's House

September 22nd, 2014 8:51am EDT
The Strain
We probably shouldn't hold "The Strain" under any kind of close logical inspection. It's big and spectacular and gruesome and, on occasion, kinda dumb.

This is a gift horse we should not look in the mouth (if for no other reason than "its mouth probably contains a horrid vampire stinger").

But here's a nitpick that must be made: surely, there was some other option for Zack than to leave him alone with a dementia-ridden senior in the middle of the full-on vampire apocalypse.

At least lay down a few ground rules. No doing what Mrs. Martinez says, if it sounds especially crazy. No picking u...

'The Good Wife' Season Premiere Recap And Review: 'The Line' - S
After season five of The Good Wife left our jaws - and our hearts - on the floor, now it's time to see what the award-winning drama plans to do in the wake of its massive changes. "The Line" picks up exactly where the end of season five left off, with Alicia (Emmy winner Julianna Margulies) being asked to run for State's Attorney, while still trying to run her own law firm and move on from the death of someone she loved. And after all that, it's not even really her episode.

Rebuffing Eli's (Alan Cumming) request to run for the office (and laughing at his "Saint Alicia" nickname for her), s...
