'The Middle' Recap: 'Flirting With Disaster'

March 5th, 2015 8:40am EST
The Middle
The three disparate plots of “Flirting with Disaster” all shared the theme of taking on new, uncomfortable roles. There were varying levels of difficulty for the adjustments involved, but by the end, everyone was in a better place. “The Middle” has certainly never shied away from heartwarming moments, but they snuck up a little more sneakily than usual in this episode.

Frankie’s flirtation with Finn may have been atypical behavior, but it was not like this side of her was completely unfamiliar. Axl’s friends in Orson have been trained for years not to interact with the rest of the Hecks...

'American Idol' Recap: Top 8 Guys Perform, 4 Eliminated
Last night on American Idol 2015, the top 12 guys turned into the top 8. The results produced some surprise eliminations, with some even bigger surprise advancements. Besides Idol eliminations, we got treated to some Motown.

American Idol Motown week usually gets us extremely excited. We love Motown but we also love seeing how different artists interpret it. American Idol 2015's contestants definitely aren't afraid to experiment with the classics. Some experiments deserved standing ovations, while others did not. Here's the run down of last night's top 8 guy performances, and a reveal of t...

'Suits' Season Finale Recap: Donna Loves Harvey, Then Leaves Him

March 5th, 2015 8:05am EST
'Suits' Season Finale Recap: 'Not Just A Pretty Face' - Donna Lo
So here we are: another Suits season finale. The end of another chapter in one heck of a well-written book. The conclusion of a chess game. There are lots of ways to describe this show, and "Not Just A Pretty Face" proves that they're all right. And that this writing staff loves cliffhangers. And that we're all going to go slowly crazy until this summer when season five starts.

Picking up as Harvey leaves Donna's place after the end of "Intent," our boy has a lot on his mind. That's in the form of a flashback sequence, where we see how he's just won his first trial with the District Attorn...

Chris Hemsworth Fails At 'Dirty Dancing' Highlights ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

Watch Chris Hemsworth Fail At 'Dirty Dancing' In This Week's SNL
Chris Hemsworth is perhaps best known as the actor that plays the powerful Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Thor's superhuman strength is clearly make believe, it's not unfair to expect that Hemsworth himself should be able to handle at least a couple strong man tactics, right?

Well, if the new hilarious promo clips for this week's Saturday Night Live are any indication, then maybe not. SNL's own Kate McKinnon found out the hard way when she asked this week's host to lift her up in the air "Dirty Dancing" style.

You can watch the video for yourself below, but it turns out tha...

Oprah Closing Harpo Studios, 200 Employees To Lose Jobs
Oprah Winfrey is moving her business to Hollywood, much to the chargin of 200 of her employees at Chicago-based Harpo Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Winfrey will relocate all of her Chicago-produced shows to her Oprah Winfrey Network headquarters in Los Angeles, effectively shutting down Harpo Studios. Winfrey apparently broke the news in person to her staff in Chicago this past Tuesday. The move comes two months after Winfrey moved her growing cable network into a new space in West Hollywood.

The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Winfrey on the move.

'Suits': Gabriel Macht Talks Donna, Directing And Continuing To Grow

'Suits': Gabriel Macht Talks Donna, Directing And Continuing To
Season four of Suits has been a big one for Gabriel Macht. As Harvey Specter, the lawyer that everyone wishes we had, he continues to add more nuances to an already complex and compelling character. We've seen more growth for Harvey this season than in any other, from an actor who somehow keeps getting better even though he was already one of the best on television.

Then there's the fact that he directed the midseason premiere like he'd been behind the camera for ages. The return of his father to the show, plus we're about to introduce an important member of Harvey's family. And oh yeah, t...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Hunt' - One Marshal And A Baby

March 4th, 2015 10:06am EST
Justified
Remember when Raylan Givens became a father? The baby Givens has been understandably overlooked for most of the final season of Justified, but Willa is front and center in "The Hunt," along with her mother Winona (a returning Natalie Zea) and oh yeah, all those bad guys we're still trying to find.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, Raylan, Rachel, Tim and associates are still looking for the wounded Ty Walker (Garret Dillahunt), who isn't going to get any help from Markham or surviving henchman Seabass (Scott Grimes), whom Markham bribes to abandon his former CO.

But Raylan ba...

'New Girl' Recap: 'Walk Of Shame'

March 4th, 2015 9:20am EST
New Girl - Walk Of Shame
“We are sluts, and we are clowns, but we are not losers!”

A few episodes ago, “New Girl” got away with the typical TV wackiness of a lost wedding ring by not really being about the ring. In this episode, Jess and Cece’s titular “Walk of Shame” involved a host of ridiculous indignities. This trope is not as common as the “stalling for lost item” routine, but it is at least just as wacky. There were points to be made with the girls’ predicament, but they did not overcome the fact that the mess they were in was gradually making less and less sense.

Jess and Cece’s feminist justifications ...

'The Voice' Recap: 'Season 8 Blind Auditions, Part 4' - Blake Wa
The last full night of auditions on The Voice was Tuesday, and naturally it was a busy one. The superstar coaches reached the phase where they got pickier with their few remaining button pushes - except for Blake Shelton, who turned his chair for a whopping nine of the fifteen singers who crossed the stage.

Meanwhile, Pharrell found himself in dogfights with Adam and Christina that were markedly different from his earlier successes, and everyone added valuable artists to their teams. Who went where and who do we think has the early advantage? Read on.
