Fear The Walking Dead: The Group Is Splintered As Season 2 Returns

For those of us still reeling from May’s (literal) barnburner of a Fear the Walking Dead midseason ender, relief is in sight. The newly splintered Manawa-Clark-Strand-Salazar crew returns Aug. 21 with their already dicey world in tatters and no alternate plan at the ready. Let’s take stock. After banishing Strand (Colman Domingo) for giving Thomas (Dougray Scott) a merciful end, Celia (Marlene Forte) and her corral of undead went up in flames, courtesy of a fed-up Madison (Kim Dickens) and a hallucinating — and now MIA — Daniel (Rubén Blades). Nick (Frank Dillane) took the loss of his spooky mentor personally […]

Better Late Than Never cast

Better Late Than Never: Winkler, Shatner, Foreman and Bradshaw Tour Asia. Hilarity Ensues.

Better Late Than Never premieres Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 10/9CT. Henry Winkler and William Shatner are sitting on a bus in Thailand, watching George Foreman and Terry Bradshaw sing karaoke duets. No, it’s not the start of an epic joke. Or the kind of post-bender dream that makes you wonder if you should give up the sauce entirely or indulge a bit more often. It’s just one of the excellent adventures the four legends of sports and entertainment tackle together in NBC’s new Winkler-coproduced series Better Late Than Never. Inspired by the Korean reality smash Grandpas Over Flowers (that’s not a […]

When Does Dance Moms Return? And What’s With the Cats?

Neither fraud conviction nor Ziegler defection nor — well, we guess, much of anything — can keep Abby Lee Miller and her reality show off of Lifetime. Yes, people, Dance Moms will return for the second half of its sixth season on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 9/8CT. Though Miller could be sentenced to up to 30 months in jail after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud (she learns her fate on Oct. 11), the show must apparently go on. No. Matter. What. And with star sisters Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler and their Abby-acolyte mom Melissa off to greener pastures, and hair-bow-loving spitfire — and frequent Miller target — […]

Becky Lynch WWE

Becky Lynch on the WWE Women’s Revolution heading into SummerSlam

It wasn’t an easy road to WWE for Becky Lynch. The 29-year-old paid her dues, working for more than a decade around the world before opportunity finally came knocking. And the knocking hasn’t stopped since, with the SmackDown performer among the top female athletes in the company. The overall women’s division in the company is on the cusp of greatness, and Lynch is a big reason for that. This was proven at WrestleMania 32 when the “Irish Lass Kicker,” Charlotte and Sasha Banks showcased a new era. Lynch didn’t secure the women’s championship, but all three left winners for their […]

Toddlers and Tiaras TLC

Mega Grand Supreme! Toddlers and Tiaras will return to TLC

Toddlers and Tiaras — a.k.a. the show that brought us Honey Boo Boo, child — is coming back to TLC next month. In an all-new, 13-episode season, the reality train wreck about tots in cupcake dresses and more makeup than I wear in a year and their fame-seeking mothers will introduce audiences to more pampered princess-wannabes and show how the pageant circuit has evolved in recent years. If you’re wondering what exactly that might entail, the press release reveals that the spray tans and teeth-perfecting flippers of yore have given way to  “luxurious beauty treatments and private jets” plus “relaxation exercises and acting classes” […]


We Mine the Mind of Simon Cowell as America’s Got Talent Narrows the Field

Let’s just get this out of the way right now: Yes, Simon Cowell genuinely is the kindhearted, quick-to-grin guy you see on the current season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, which launches its live shows on Tuesday, July 26. We’ll swear to it. Credit the joy of being dad to adorable toddler Eric. And being freed from the laser focus on bolstering his record label via the global Idol and X-Factor franchises Cowell also helped create. But mostly, says the charming Brit, watching an endless parade of good people do entertaining things makes him feel like a kid at the carnival […]
