How did we ever move away from having seers around? They seem to be pretty darn handy, especially if you have people trudging into war (and that trend certainly hasn't gone away). In this exclusive clip, Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) has the ultimate reassurance for his son Bjorn about going into battle. The seer said he'll be fine!
Really, this should be an episode ripped from a Travel Channel show. Everyone's having fabulous parties with amazing food and there's even fireworks in the offing, but all of the women are too busy screaming at one another (or watching other women screaming at one another) to notice how great they have it. If anything, we all probably need a glass of Ramona pinot just to get through it.
As Oliver on "The Originals," Chase Coleman is the real deal. Okay, not a werewolf, but an honest-to-goodness Southern boy born in Alabama and raised in Louisiana. As the scheming little brother to Jackson (Nathan Parsons), Oliver's intentions aren't entirely clear yet, but we're betting they will be soon. Coleman didn't give away much in my conversation with him, but he did talk about making a deal with the devil, loyalty, and what happens when you're dead (on "The Originals," of course).
Aw, shucks. It's been a tough season for Bill and Jen on "The Little Couple," one that's been complicated with chemo treatments and visits to the doctor. This week, the TLC show (Tues. at 10:00 p.m.) takes a lighter, happier tone with chocolates and tea parties. It's well-deserved and, yes, totally adorbs.
Ellen Degeneres may not be the first celebrity to come to mind when you think of reality TV design competition shows (if you think of them at all), but guess what? She's got one. "Ellen's Design Challenge" is a six-episode series for HGTV. Her show joins reality projects for Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates and one for "Star Trek" captain William Shatner on sister network DIY.
Another new Housewife, another crumbling marriage. Of course, we knew the picture-perfect (and utterly boring) image Shannon tried to drill into us in last week's season premiere was total crap, and this week we discovered she's a looney hypocrite in a crumbling marriage. Aw, shucks! She's gonna fit right in!
Party anthems! It's fitting, I guess, that the guest judge is Redfoo of LMFAO. Even though he won't be able to offer any useful critique of the dancing, he will be able to keep energy high at the judges' table. More importantly, he'll probably bother the hell out of Len, and that can never be a bad thing. So, what is he looking for in the performances? Something that will make him "go woo," of course. Aren't we all?
"Deadliest Catch" kicks off season 10 (yes, 10) on Tues. April 22 at 9:00 p.m. on Discovery, and to kick things off Time Bandit Captain Johnathan Hillstrand and Cape Caution Captain Bill "Wild Bill" Wichrowski stopped by the HitFix studio first thing in the morning (well, 9:00 a.m., so it wasn't all that early for them) to talk about the new season, which they deemed the "bloodiest one yet."
If you've gotten hooked on the USA series "Chrisley Knows Best" (season finale Tues. April 22 at 10:00 p.m.), don't be sad that it's wrapping up -- season two has already been ordered, and more importantly, you can win a T-shirt and stuff. I'll be live-Tweeting the show on Tuesday, so be sure to tune in -- because right after it airs, we'll be picking winners. That's right, winners. Like, five of them.
The final (and seventh) season of "True Blood" won't hit HBO until June 22, but the first trailer for the season has been released -- and it may look familiar to those of us who still remember those horrific images of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It seems that Hep-V virus hits town and leaves chaos in its wake -- and FEMA isn't coming to rescue anyone. This isn't subtext -- more like a hammer driving a point home.
