"Things are gonna get worse"
We are just about 2 weeks away from the season 6 premiere of The Walking Dead and as you can see above, AMC has given us a new teaser trailer for the new season. Things are gonna get worse as we pick up the action from where it was left off in the season 5 finale episode last spring. I mean, things are always intense on The Walking Dead so none of this should come as any surprise. The new season will feature new characters, new settings (in and around Alexandria) and of course lotso zombies … what more could you ask for? Check out the trailer above and get ready, the 6th season of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC on Sunday October 11.

New episodes are coming to Netflix!!!
Has there ever been a show that you’ve fallen in love with—like madly, deeply in love with—but you haven’t even seen it yet? Okay, that is me with Black Mirror. Last year one of our UK writers at Paste wrote a piece that I edited titled, Black Mirror: The Show That Will Cure Your Addiction in Five Steps and I’ve been obsessing over this show in my head since then. Also, there was a friggen Christmas special with Jon Hamm that I need in my life. Now that Netflix has announced Season Three is being released by the streaming device, my body is officially ready for a binge. The show is said to be one of the darkest, most scathing and entertaining indictments of our tech-obsessed world, and I want to know who’s watching already! Click inside for more!

"Evil has returned to Sleepy Hollow"
Back in March we learned the happy news that Fox renewed Sleepy Hollow for a third season and next Thursday, October 1, the show returns with all new episodes. As you can see in the trailer embedded above for the season 3 premiere episode titled I, Witness, Ichabod and Abbie are back at it again fighting the forces of evil in the “quiet” hamlet of Sleepy Hollow. Over the summer, it was reported that the new season of Sleepy Hollow will feature much less of the Headless Horsemen (which is dumb to me but whatever) but the reports failed to mention that the new season would also feature much less hair on both Ichabod and Abbie — everyone got a haircut! Additionally, EW reports that two episodes of the new season will crossover with new episodes of Bones. Um, what? Brilliant! Check out the trailer above and get excited, a whole new season of Sleepy Hollow is coming our way next week.

Season 5, Episode 1
And, we’re back! Scandal, Scandal, Scandal. I have to admit, I’ve had my moments where I’ve almost tried to quit you. But I haven’t missed a single episode yet, and there’s always something that keeps bringing me back. Season Four had its flaws, but Shonda Rhimes gave an interview over the break and promised us one thing that gave me incredibly high hopes for Season Five: MORE GLADIATING. For that reason, I was a little disappointed in last night’s premiere, but still very entertained. Click inside for more!

JGL does BBHMM with TRG
The always amazing Joseph Gordon-Levitt paid a visit to The Tonight Show last night to chill with his buddy Jimmy Fallon and perform with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet The Ragtime Gals. JGL and the Gals teamed up for a ragtime performance of Rihanna‘s club banger Bitch Better Have My Money which, you can hear above, translates fairly well. BBHMM has to be the best pop track to be released from a non-existent album this year and now, thanks to Jimmy, Joseph and the Ragtime Gals, it’s also a song that your grandparents can enjoy as well.
Can I take your order?
Jimmy Fallon continued his long streak of providing the Tonight Show audience with fun sketches and skits that strike the perfect balance of nostalgic entertainment when he orchestrated a Kenan & Kel reunion on the show last night. Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, stars of the ’90s series Kenan & Kel, came together last night for a reunion of their famous Good Burger skit for the first time since the series ended back in 2001. Jimmy brilliantly inserted himself into the skit long enough to get the ball rolling before Kenan and Kel ran away with it. Click the embed above to watch and love. I wasn’t a huge fan of Kenan & Kel when it aired in the ’90s (I wasn’t the target demo) but even I have to admit that this reunion is pretty damn cool. Enjoy.
The new season begins in 2 weeks
While many of the shows this new TV season are premiering this week, we will still have to wait 2 more weeks to see new episodes of The CW‘s shows … including The Flash season 2. As you may recall, we got our first look at Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick as he will appear on The Flash and today we get to see the moment when the old Flash (Jay) meets the current Flash (Barry Allen) on the show. The video embedded above is referred to as a “trailer” but it’s more of a behind-the-scenes/outtake video meant to promote the second season of the show. Have a look above and mark your calendars, The Flash returns in just 2 weeks.
NBC aired the second episode of Neil Patrick Harris‘s new weekly variety show Best Time Ever which, to my EXTREME GLEE, included a comedy bit by our dear Britney Spears. Britney conspired with NPH (and Joe Jonas, for some reason) to prank a couple of men applying to be her bodyguard. Neil would feed lines to Britney that she would *have* to say to the unsuspecting bodyguard applicants and she delivered PERFECTLY. As you can see above, this prank skit thing is actually very funny, mostly because of Britney‘s charm. I know I cannot be truly objective but I fully contend that this Brit skit is the funniest thing that NPH has pulled off on Best Time Ever. Have a look above, I think you will enjoy it immensely.
"So you want to dance with the devil?"
Back in May, we got our first look at Ryan Murphy‘s new TV series Scream Queens and my first impression was that the new series looked very much like other things had had been released before (Pretty Little Liars, Scream) and failed to immediately impress me. Even still, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the show when the promo for Scream Queens started amping up over the summer. Before last night’s series premiere, I ready mostly great reviews for the show and couldn’t wait to see for myself. I am very relived to say that the Scream Queens pilot episode far exceeded my expectations and actually turned out to be wholly satisfying and very funny. I admit I wasn’t really jazzed on the news that Ariana Grande had been cast on the show but I can honestly say, she had the best scene in the entire episode … which you can watch in full below.

Dead is Dead
TV Line secured a quick interview with actress Maisie Williams on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards Sunday night and in addition to asking her about her upcoming guest appearance in the new season of Doctor Who, she was also asked about the mortality of the Jon Snow character (played by Kit Harington) on Game of Thrones. If you are caught up with Game of Thrones (which ended its 5th season months ago, so it’s not really a spoiler to talk about it now), then you know that Jon Snow appeared to have been killed in the season finale episode … but because he is such a big, important character, many people refuse to believe that he is actually dead (or will remain dead). Maisie was asked the Jon Snow question and she unequivocally answers that he is dead … adding, “sorry”. Click below to watch her short video interview and see what you think about what she has to say about the deadness of Jon Snow. More »
