'Archer' Star Aisha Tyler: 'The Insanity Is Nigh For Lana'

'Archer' Star Aisha Tyler: 'The Insanity Is Nigh For Lana'
Tonight's episode of Archer focuses on Lana Kane and her parents, Claudette and Lemuel Kane (voiced by CCH Pounder and Keith David). With the parents coming to town, this was the perfect time for us to sit down with the voice of Lana, the ever-witty Aisha Tyler, to ask how much of Lana she sees in herself, if maternity has made Lana a bit nicer, and how crazy the Archer cast really gets.

"I think the insanity is nigh on Archer for Lana," teased Aisha. "That’s about all I can tell you, but she’s about to enter a world of reckless pain for in a few episodes, so I think that will be very fun....

'The Americans' Recap: Phillip's Job Crisis

'The Americans' Recap: Phillip's Job Crisis
In this episode, we learn that Phillip is as screwed up as his wife. Sure, Keri Russell’s Elizabeth character was separated from her family, brutally raped by a superior, and forced into a fake marriage with a guy she didn't know. But Phillip had to do the dirty with a guy with manboobs as part of his training. He’s straight. And did I mention manboobs?

His seduction of the CIA program head’s underage daughter Kimberly (and how far he might have to take it) is torturing him. It’s especially squicky because she’s around the same age as his daughter. Isn’t turning her to the cause almost a d...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta Kills Someone Off

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta
Is anyone else noticing that "It's Always Sunny's" title gags are starting to lose a little steam?

As solid as this season has been (astoundingly solid, considering how badly most shows sag once they hit the decade mark), that "Sunny" trademark of turning the episode title into a punchline has't been the same lately.

Episode titles like "Charlie Work" and "Psycho Pete Returns" just hang there. They describe the episode just fine, but there's no punch.

Remember how things were in the early seasons? Like when Dennis and Dee quit the bar to start new, super-successful dream jobs. Then, sec...

Survivor: Worlds Apart Premiere – And So It Begins

February 26th, 2015 12:27pm EST
Survivor
Yeehaw! It’s the 30th season of Survivor, and we’re going all cowboy this year! 18 plucky Americans, divided into three tribes, are jounced through the jungles of Nicaragua in the back of a pickup truck to meet our boy in blue, Jeff Probst.

Our contestants have been chosen based on their work styles. The White Collar group (the ones who make the rules,) Blue Collar (the ones who follow the rules,) and No Collar – those crazy freethinkers who live to break the rules. Why, there’s a No Collar fellow right now! You can tell because he looks vaguely like Fabio and has attached white feathers t...

'Vikings' Star Katheryn Winnick: 'Lagertha Is A Free Woman'

'Vikings' Star Katheryn Winnick: 'Lagertha Is A Free Woman'
Katheryn Winnick doesn't just kick people's behinds as Lagertha on Vikings; she can do that in real life, too. Actress, martial artist and generally strong woman, this is a lady who doesn't have to pretend to be cool - she's as impressive off camera as she is in front of it.

What makes her so inspiring? We caught up with Katheryn last week to discuss where Lagertha is headed in the new season of Vikings, her memorable guest stint on TNT's Transporter: The Series, and how she became the woman audiences know and love today.

"It's a bit surreal," she said, when we asked her about the fantast...

'Empire' Recap 'Lyon's Roar' Jamal’s Coming Out Song

February 26th, 2015 11:56am EST
Empire - FOX
The last time the Lyon’s family put on a united front—that wasn’t a publicity stunt---was right before Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) went to prison. Sadly they’re even more divided now that she’s out.

Inspired by her and Lucious’ sexual reunion, Cookie wants to bring the whole family together for a Lyon’s legacy album and accompanying documentary. It will kill two birds with one stone: make Lucious immortal and mend family ties (at least some of them.) Basking in the day after hookup, Lucious (Terrence Howard) agrees. But Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) warns him about seconds.

“You want Cookie’s n...

'The Middle' Recap: "Steaming Pile of Guilt'

February 26th, 2015 11:49am EST
The Middle
The funny thing about how forgetful Frankie and Mike are with Brick (and with everything in general) is how much they expect themselves to not remember. That is just the nature of forgetfulness: you might recognize this trait in yourself, but that might only make you powerless to stop the inevitable. The extent of their neglect of their youngest child has become so thorough that they have a set of tricks for covering their tracks, like delaying his birthday to the following year. But it has gotten to the point that the usefulness of these tricks has been exhausted (they delayed his birth...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'
"Nanda Parbat" is the last "Arrow" we're getting for about a month. Naturally, that means cliffhangers, and the last ten minutes (ish) of "Nanda Parbat" were crammed full of 'em.

Naturally, this episode's left us with a lot of questions to linger over in the next month.

Will Oliver really be the next Ra's al Ghul? Will Nyssa side with good or evil after learning the truth about Sara's death? Will the Atom resemble the actual, comic-book Atom in any way, or just be Ray Palmer in an Iron Man suit?

For the record, we're going with: no, yes, no. Now let's count down the best moments from "Na...

Lady Gaga To Have Major Role In Season 5 Of 'American Horror Story' (Watch)

Lady Gaga To Have Major Role In Season 5 Of 'American Horror Sto
Lady Gaga's already Mother Monster, so it's only appropriate that she become a real, monster too.

The singer's just announced over Twitter that she'll be joining the cast of "American Horror Story" next season, and as a series regular, no less. Meaning, she'll be playing a major role, and not just hopping on "AHS" for an episode or two.

Gaga also revealed the theme and subtitle for the next of FX's hit horror anthology. Coming this fall: "American Horror Story: Hotel."

Admittedly, "Hotel" isn't nearly as terrifying as "Freak Show" or "Murder House," but this hotel probably has a bunch of...
