This TV blogger couldn’t be happier! Not only are there an impressive new batch of mid-season premieres to consume, Shondaland has finally re-opened, giving me even more delicious spoilers to share! Here are five scoops on “How To Get Away With Murder,” “Scandal,” “Empire” and more!

Liar Liar? Remember when "How To Get Away With Murder's" Conor had a full-on post-murder anxiety attack, ran back to his ex-boyfriend's house and lied that he was freaking out because of a drug problem? Did you wonder why he picked that cover story so readily? Jack Falahee dished to EW.com about his do...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake's Heart is Crushed, And So Is Ours

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake's Heart is Crushed, And So Is O
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" might be a comedy, and we might have laughed plenty at "The Defense Rests" (if you sat there stonefaced while Holt cackled at the genius of Wuntch's name autocorrecting to "butt," you may be a robot).

But it wasn't the funniest episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" history. And that's intentional- "The Defense Rests" is probably the closest thing this show will get to a Serious Emotions episode.

And those Serious Emotions come from Jake and Sophia, finally doing what was foretold when Eva Longoria only signed on for three episodes- breaking up.

At first, it's not a breakup...

'Mulaney' Recap: 'He Has An Achilles Body'

January 26th, 2015 10:31am EST
Mulaney
What type of TV universe does “Mulaney” exist in? Is it the kind in which psychopaths can thrive in their own little pocket like in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”? Is it the show business exaggeration of “30 Rock”? Is it the mostly realistic world populated by main characters who act like they are at a slight remove from everything, a la “Seinfeld”? Or is it the touchy-feel sort of so many sitcoms that try to teach real-world lessons so didactically?

Because of this state of uncertainty, it is hard to know what conclusions to make about Lou teaching John about power moves. The op...

'Bob's Burgers' Recap: 'Late Afternoon In The Garden Of Bob And Louise'

January 26th, 2015 9:44am EST
Bob's Burgers
Bob Belcher’s passion comes out when he gets into activities that are not typically known for inspiring passion. This could be a recipe for annoying others, but for the most part, he does not indulge his interests at the expense of the people in his life who do not share them. This is partly because he has not very often had the opportunity to fully indulge his passions. Acceptance into the community garden changed all that.

Bob insisted that this opportunity was for the sake of the restaurant, and thus the family. He certainly seemed to believe this. Not that this was a particularly ...

Which Celebrity Nephew Blew The Judges Away On 'Idol'?

January 24th, 2015 8:44am EST
American Idol
Carlos Santana's nephew wowed judges on the latest episode of "American Idol." Adam Lasher, 27, appeared at the audition with a broken hand after a skateboarding accident, but that didn't prevent him from impressing judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr.

Lasher played the guitar and performed an original song called "These Shoes."

He told host Ryan Seacrest that his uncle taught him how to play the instrument, and labeled him "a Jedi with a guitar."

It appeared that the judges were unaware that Lasher's uncle was Santana even though Seacrest had discussed his family ...

Backtrom - Rainn Wilson
Rainn Wilson has a new job as the lead in the new Fox drama "Backstrom."

The 13-episode drama is based on the Swedish book series by criminologist/novelist Leif G.W. Persson. The hourlong crime drama centers on an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior.

"Hart Hanson and Rainn Wilson are the perfect combination of creative vision and onscreen talent to bring this one-of-a-kind character and story like 'Backstrom' to Fox,” said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly.

“I’ve been in business with Hart for a long time, and no...

'Mulaney' Recap: 'I May Be A Hot Dog, But I'm Still A Young Hot Dog'

January 19th, 2015 10:53am EST
Mulaney
Last week’s episode provided the latest, and strongest, evidence of how the veteran presence of Elliott Gould has been one of the most reliable elements of the otherwise unreliable “Mulaney.” It does not always work when supporting characters are given a more prominent role, but it was such a delight watching Oscar be delighted that more of him seemed impossible to disappoint. Besides, regular cast members of a TV show, no matter how tangential, need to be able to handle plots of their own. So what a disappointment that Oscar’s most prominent storyline to date was missing so much of that...
