“Coven” is back! Finally, that one-week gap was unexpectedly torturous, I had been so used to the weekly fix of witchy bitchery that suffering through that annoying mini-hiatus (who cares about Thanksgiving, really?) gave me some serious withdrawal symptoms. But all is good now that there is a new episode to dissect.
“The Sacred Taking” opens with Queenie asserting her new Voodoo badass persona, cutting a rapist’s heart out, dissing the coven and saying things like, “This is Voodoo,” and “War is coming.” Zoe and Madison try to convince her to come back, Queenie makes it clear that once you...

Producers from the ABC TV series “Scandal” are shortening the number of episodes for the third season due to lead actress Kerry Washington's pregnancy.
According to Deadline.com, the show's costume designers are finding it increasingly difficult to hide her pregnancy on the show. As a result, TV executives decided to make just 18 episodes instead of 22.
The political drama airs the second part of its riveting winter finale next Thursday. The program will then take a brief hiatus before returning in February.
Washington is expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

We've officially reached the halfway point of the final season of Nikita. So it's time to start putting some of these irons in the fire. "Set-Up" reveals the backstory of a major character (and it's about time!), but it doesn't have that much more to offer.
Picking up where last week's episode left off, Alex finds herself under interrogation in a CIA safe house in Mumbai. The Agency's "forensic accountant" (Rose Rollins, from NBC's short-lived Chase) is another of those 'look how tough I am' types. Nikita wants Sam to help rescue Alex, but he balks.
She then realizes Birkhoff is conspicuo...

A remarkably beautiful Bones 9.11, in which Bones finally finds a meaning of angels - they're in the mathematical equations that a "freakoid" (Booth's word) genius physicist (perfectly played by Richard Schiff) writes on the blackboard, to describe the soaring life of his recently murdered daughter.
If this sounds like both more powerful and sophisticated stuff than usually found on television, that would be right. Bones always flirts with what it means for Bones to be a genius and therefore apart from most other people in the world, including Booth. But we get to see that genius in bot...

Yes, she's beautiful - but she's also talented, tenacious, and tough enough to hang upside down in a straightjacket. Krystyn Lambert is part of the magic team on Criss Angel BeLIEve, and we snagged a few minutes with her last week to discuss the show, and her own emerging career in magic.
Let's get the obvious part out of the way first: Krystyn is a woman. A ridiculously good-looking woman. The only woman on the magic team, in fact. But none of that is truly relevant. She's part of Team Angel because she's earned the right to be there. In Tuesday's episode, we saw her perform two demonstra...

Last night, 'The X Factor' officially became the most unpredictable singing talent show we've ever seen.
Restless Road is going to win this show, it's been clear all along - but there were two that seemed like they could challenge the super country trio: Rion and Ellona.
These two girls with the titanic voices were poised to use pure talent to take on Restless Road and challenge them in a three-cornered battle on the last show.
Then last night happened and suddenly the two girls with the big voices (Rion Paige & Ellona Santiago) won't get to sing anymore. Won't get the chance to take on ...

The Augustine experimentation storyline is just getting started. The Vampire Diaries produces exposition heavy episodes before massive arcs that span more than one season. “The Cell” had the exposition and a healthy dose of ret-conning. Damon reveals more about his inhumane side that does and doesn’t run counter to the character’s progression. Elena learns about this secret from Damon’s with horror and astonishment. Caroline reminded her recently about Damon’s past as a sadistic serial killer, but true love forgives all sins in this show for a character in need of rationalization. “The Cell...

When Carson Daly asked Blake Shelton and Adam Levine if they were cooking for Thanksgiving, we might've floated the idea of a Blake and Adam cooking show. And after you favorited and retweeted that on Twitter, we might've asked Blake about it. His response was typical hilarious Blake Shelton.
"If you want to make a cooking show that invol...
