'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Just Say No' - Enter The Kool-Aid Guy

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Just Say No' - Enter The Kool-A
TruTV is giving us a bonus Impractical Jokers this week. They want to use the hit power of the show to help launch some of their new unscripted programs. We just want to laugh at extra Sal, Joe, Q and Murr. Everyone wins. Here's what happened in this additional but no less embarrassing Tuesday-night edition of Jokers.

Challenge #1: Deal With It
The guys are back at Foxwoods again, working as blackjack dealers (once they pry Joe off the slot machine). Mr. Gatto also bats leadoff in this challenge, talking about the joys of "warm fish salad" until the gag is beaten thoroughly to death and Sa...

'The Voice' Recap: Three Knockouts, Four Artists Move On

'The Voice' Recap: Three Knockouts, Four Artists Move On
It's a short night for The Voice. With only a one-hour show Tuesday, the singing competition featured only three additional Knockouts, one of which was already shown early on the show's YouTube channel. At least one of the other two featured a steal by Gwen Stefani. Read on to find out which four artists moved on from the trio of matchups on Tuesday.

Team Gwen: Taylor John Williams, "Mad World" vs. Troy Ritchie, "Hey Ya"
This knockout were already posted to YouTube as another "sneak peek" clip, so there's not a ton of suspense here. It's the usual two artists are in one space and the coach...

'Black-ish' Star Yara Shahidi: 'Zoey Lives In A World Of Two Extremes'

'Black-ish' Star Yara Shahidi: 'Zoey Lives In A World Of Two Ext
ABC's Black-ish is one of the most talked about new comedies of the season. What makes it so buzzworthy? We recently talked to series star Yara Shahidi, who plays Zoey Johnson, about what drew her to the show and what she's most enjoyed about working with TV parents Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

"I love that Zoey lives in a world of two extremes," Yara told us. "She is always on her phone, but if you pay attention to her, you realize that she doesn't miss one thing that is happening around her. She is the oldest of the kids, and no matter how irritated she may be by them, she is...

'The Voice' Recap: Taylor Swift Joins For The Knockouts

'The Voice' Recap: Taylor Swift Joins For The Knockouts
Now that the Top 48 have been picked and cut in half (except for those eight steals), it's time to cut the field in half again (except for four more steals) on The Voice. Welcome to The Knockouts, which are back this season after having been replaced by a second cycle of Battles in season six. Apparently that change didn't go over well, because we're using the old formula: two artists each perform a song of their choice and only one moves on.

We can also say goodbye to the individual team advisors and hello to Taylor Swift, who becomes the go-to girl for all four coaches just as her new al...

Michael J. Nelson Celebrates Halloween With 'RiffTrax Live: Anaconda'

Michael J. Nelson Celebrates Halloween With 'RiffTrax Live: Anac
Halloween is about scares, and what's more scary than a terrible movie with a ridiculous snake? The hilarious trio at RiffTrax - Michael J. Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy - are celebrating the holiday this Thursday by skewering the 1997 Jennifer Lopez adventure flick Anaconda, and Mike spoke to me last week about the joys of riffing a half-cocked monster movie and his plans for Halloween night.

For those of you who haven't yet seen Anaconda, you're in for a treat. "I think the linchpin of the whole thing is, in the third act there's a shot of the boat going away from an Amazon water...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Personal (And State) Lines

October 27th, 2014 9:06am EDT
'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Persona
Now The Good Wife fans have seen Alicia kick off her campaign for Cook County State's Attorney, and see the roles reversed from the pilot six seasons ago. As if that wasn't one big image to put into our heads, Sunday's episode gave us another one: Alicia reclaiming Will Gardner's office. Oh, and Cary's in trouble again and Elsbeth is her typical awesomely out of left field self, but mostly, this one was about the chair.

Picking up the plot from last week's "Shiny Objects," Alicia's sexual discrimination case has now become a first-rate cluster since AUSA Josh Perotti (Kyle MacLachlan) is p...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day At The Office

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day
At this point, Transporter: The Series is starting to feel like a well-oiled machine, just like the cars it so embraces. It's doing what every good TV series should do - take us on an extended journey with its characters. And just when it has made us laugh with one story, then it returns with a more serious mission that reminds us how well developed it's becoming and how talented its star is.

Frank's second contract in week two brings him back to his home territory of Paris. He argues with Dieter about why he still hasn't driven the red Audi we first glimpsed in "Trojan Horsepower" before ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds Aren't Forever

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds
Transporter: The Series continues its high-speed drive in week two, with Frank going to a hockey game and a fight breaking out, but not before the audience enjoys some truly perfectly placed verbal jabs and a few guest appearances from some familiar faces. The result is the show's most fun episode to date, reminding us that it is possible to deliver the package and enjoy the ride, too.

Remember at the end of last week when Frank said he was going to Canada? Well, he's in Canada. Toronto, specifically, using a parking garage as his personal vehicle testing ground - you have to love the part...

RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'

RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'
Survivor's Remorse has done a few good things. The Starz original series has reinvigorated the half-hour comedy. It's added something fresh to the tired formula of famous people dealing with fame. And it's provided a new spotlight to shine on RonReaco Lee, one of the overlooked talents on television.

For the last few years, RonReaco has without fanfare enlivened every TV project he's been a part of. As snitch and often unwilling accomplice Julius Grant on FOX's criminally (pun intended) short-lived comedy The Good Guys, he stole every scene that he was in.

Thankfully, Good Guys creator Ma...

With 'Constantine,' Harold Perrineau Gets His Wings
As if Harold Perrineau wasn't cool enough as the bassist of the most underrated TV band, now he's gained supernatural powers as an angelic sidekick on NBC's new drama Constantine. His character Manny is tasked with watching over occult detective John Constantine (played by Matt Ryan, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) and trying to keep him in line, while the two battle literal forces of darkness.

We caught up with Harold last week to chat about Constantine joining the ranks of DC Comics adaptations on TV, how much Hellblazer reading he had to do, and if he's used to jumping on board new se...
