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.

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...

Katy Perry Capitalizing On Super Bowl 'Left Shark'

Katy Perry left shark
Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show was one of the better performances during the big game in recent years, but one of the most talked about moments was the two background dancers dressed as sharks who joined her as she sang hit single "California Gurls."

The dancer on her left (from the audience's perspective) created a huge buzz online because of its out-of-sync dance moves, and was quickly dubbed "Left Shark."

Following the performance, a Florida artist began producing Left Shark figures he created using a 3D printer and offering them online for $24.99, but Katy's lawyers quickl...

'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'

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 ...

It's unclear whether there is a formal child support agreement in place with Brown and the ba...

'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.

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhumanity!

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhum
Last season, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." started out a little so-so. Then, halfway through the season, HYDRA happened, and the show rocketed into an incredible action series.

This season, "Agents" has been, again, a little iffy. Solid in some parts, feeble in others. But now we've got Inhumans, and the Inhumans are definitely Season Two's HYDRA moment. Everything from now on should be comic book bliss.

Guess what? It totally is.

After months of playing coy with the Inhumans, "Agents" gives us all the Inhumanity we can handle. No new characters yet- we're sticking with the four core Inhuman ...
