'The Voice' Season 8 Premiere Recap: Adam's Terrible Day
The Voice is back (not that you missed it; it only went away two months ago!). And while the focus is on the return of original coach Christina Aguilera, there are plenty of other storylines in season eight.

Like can anyone derail Blake Shelton and the seemingly indomitable country voting block? Will Adam Levine continue to have his mojo when it comes to snagging four-chair artists? And how many wise words will Pharrell Williams come up with this season?

After another rocking performance from the coaches, who team up on Lenny Kravitz's hit "Are You Gonna Go My Way" with some really distra...

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Gaga

Lady Gaga Oscars 2015
You could almost hear the world cringe when Scarlett Johansson appeared on stage at the Oscars to introduce Lady Gaga, who would be singing a four-song nmedley to mark the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music, but as soon as the eccentric pop star sang the first words to the musical's eponymous theme song, it was clear that the biggest highlight from this year's award ceremony had just begun.

Known for her outrageous fashions at these types of events, Gaga, born this way: Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, dressed down for her performance, wearing a white Azzedine Alaïa ball gown, putti...

Julie Ann Emery Stands Out In 'Better Call Saul'

Julie Ann Emery Stands Out In 'Better Call Saul'
AMC's Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul has been even better than we were expecting it to be. In addition to being as well-written and produced as its predecessor, it's also populated by some tremendous actors, from Bob Odenkirk to Michael McKean and Julie Ann Emery, who plays the enigmatic Betsy Kettleman.

We sat down with Julie Ann last week to discuss what it's been like for her to go from portraying Ida Thurman on FX's critically beloved Fargo to taking on the less-than-scrupulous character of Betsy, and the number one thing she's learned from working on two tremendous projects.

Bill Corbett And Kevin Murphy On 'RiffTrax Live: Sharknado' (And
Need something to do with your weekend? How about getting caught in a sharknado? RiffTrax's hilarious skewering of the most famous B-movie since The Room, Rifftrax Live: Sharknado, is now available for digital streaming and download. You can enjoy Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy's commentary on Tara Reid's acting, improbable weather formations and that infamous chainsaw scene.

We caught up with Bill and Kevin on Wednesday to look back on Sharknado and ask them if they're arming themselves for Sharknado 2: The Second One - plus, we've got some fresh information on what the RiffTr...

'12 Monkeys' Takes Amanda Schull To Number 1

February 20th, 2015 12:06pm EST
Amanda Schull
SyFy's 12 Monkeys has been one of the biggest surprises of the new TV season: a smart, legitimately suspenseful science-fiction thriller that's already blown the movie out of the water. Within that, one of the best things about it is that its main ensemble is comprised entirely of actors who've been doing tremendous work elsewhere and are now really getting a chance to shine.

One of those is Amanda Schull, who won us over as hard-charging lawyer Katrina Bennett on USA's Suits, and is now playing a strong woman of a different kind as Dr. Cassandra Railly, the woman who may hold the future o...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Wrong Playwright' - Nugget Visits The Mothership

February 20th, 2015 10:07am EST
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Wrong Playwright' - Nugget Visi
In this week's Impractical Jokers, there's more mayhem in the grocery store, Murr still has no luck with women, and a familiar mascot drops by to say hello (or to plot murder, who knows). It all reaches a head with the all too memorable theme of Brian Quinn finding out he has no career in the arts.

Challenge #1: Hide and Sneak
The guys are playing best-of-three "hide and sneak" in the local market - hiding an item in a shopper's cart for the other person to identify and steal. Murr drops a bag of flour into an elderly woman's cart and distracts her for Sal, but Sal has a really hard time g...

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'Nellis' - The One With Area 51

February 20th, 2015 9:06am EST
'Archer' Recap And Review: 'Nellis' - The One With Area 51
Archer has already done undersea, in space and let us not forget Skytanic, so it was probably only a matter of time before Adam Reed got to an episode involving aliens. And when Adam Reed does something, he really goes for it. "Nellis" may be the most off the wall episode this season...yet.

Incredibly brassed off about Lana setting him up royally, Archer has dealt with his anger in the only way he knows how: massive debauchery. This forces him to phone Cheryl/Carol for help, as he is now too broke and drunk to get home. But when she sends her private jet to get him, it's really so everyone...

It's 'Grand Theft Shopping Cart' On Tonight's 'Impractical Jokers'

It's 'Grand Theft Shopping Cart' On Tonight's  'Impractical Joke
It's well known that the Impractical Jokers are a menace to grocery stores. They've eaten people's food, attached balloons to unsuspecting customers, and Santiago still wants his money back.

This Starpulse exclusive clip from tonight's episode, "Wrong Playwright," is no exception. Out on the floor, Q selects a random item off the shelves - one which will be easily recognizable to anyone who listens to the "What Say You?" podcast - and it's up to Joe to identify and swipe the item out of an innocent bystander's cart.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Sal and Murr are arguing about Murr, once a...

Carlos Pratts Gets The Spotlight In Disney's 'McFarland, USA'
Disney's McFarland, USA is all about inspiring young adults to do amazing things, and it's a case of art imitating life for actor Carlos Pratts, who co-stars in the film as Thomas, one of the members of McFarland High School's 1987 cross country team.

Like his character, Carlos is getting his chance to shine in this heartwarming sports pic opposite Kevin Costner. We sat down with him on Tuesday to discuss what it was like for him to make McFarland.

You probably haven't heard the story of coach Jim White and the McFarland High runners, who come together out of unlikely circumstances and th...

Linus Roache Returns For Another Season Of History's 'Vikings'

Linus Roache Returns For Another Season Of History's 'Vikings'
History's Vikings is back, which means that we get to enjoy another season of Linus Roache as the brilliant but always devious King Ecbert of Wessex. Last seen defeating the Vikings in battle, Ecbert still has plenty up his sleeve in season three - and whether or not he can be trusted is always up for debate.

After our interview with him from last season, we caught up with Linus recently to learn a little bit more about what Ecbert may be up to in these upcoming episodes and what it's been like for him to portray the character for his second season.

"With King Ecbert, you never quite know...
