Finally, we get a good, long(ish) peek at what we can expect from "American Horror Story: Coven." Yes, there's still plenty of spooky imagery, but in this teaser we get a sense of the plot, the setting and, most importantly, what we can expect from Jessica Lange this time around.
They couldn't keep us in the dark forever
The network orders 12 episodes and three new specials
One swinger wants to go a little further than her partner approves
Hey, guess what? Swingers get jealous! Not about their significant others having sex with other people, of course, but about emotional commitments and flirting. Who knew? This week on the four-part series "Secret Sex Lives: Swingers" (Sat. Sept. 21 at 10:00 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health), our Atlanta-based couples discover that there are actually some lines that shouldn't be crossed. In this exclusive clip from the "Wives Gone Wild" episode, odd couple Hali and Bryan discuss renegotiating their agreement. It goes over about as well as you might expect it to.
Some fans got great makeovers, and some were hot messes
I bet you had the same reaction I did when I saw that tonight was the Superfan challenge on "Project Runway." How lucky these ladies are! They get top-to-toe makeovers and their VERY OWN OUTFITS courtesy of highly skilled (and, yes, highly stressed) designers! They meet Tim Gunn! They meet Heidi Klum! They meet... well, a bunch of judges who aren't Michael Kors! Sure, they have to listen to incessant plugs for L'Oreal hair care, but most gals get a version of that whenever they get their hair cut. What a treat!
It was only while watching the episode that I realized there is no amount of money that would inspire me to walk down a runway rocking a craptastic sofa cover or an unfinished suit that splendidly highlighted my back fat. I would also not care to have a well-meaning designer reveal to all of America that I had gobs of excess skin that needed to be corseted into an arrangement that made me look ]vaguely attractive and not so much like the Elephant Man. And so, with those bitter truths revealed, the dream of being a Superfan withers and dies.
Andy, GinaMarie and Spencer all got the boot
It seems the fallout continues from the racist, homophobic and generally offensive comments made inside the "Big Brother" house this season. Now we know that not only have finalists Spencer and GinaMarie lost their jobs for the slurs they made (jury member Aaryn was also canned from her modeling agency), but so has the inoffensive Andy. Yes, Andy [warning: spoilers ahead].
While there's plenty of fighting, the talent may be better
Having found a formula that works in "The Real Housewives" franchise, Bravo has done its level best to milk it dry before flogging it to death in endless permutations (look for a "Real Housewives" in a town near you!). With the franchise aging and America possibly running low on actual housewives to film, the network has been sniffing around for new territory with mixed results. Very mixed results, mind you.
See the spooky, witchy images from the new season
The enticing (but not revealing) images keep spilling from the vaults for FX's "American Horror Story: Coven." Today we get four new poster images, each one spookier than the last (although I'll say the spookiest has to be Voodoo Queen). Here they are. Consider yourself warned. And oh, remember that the show premieres Wed. Oct. 9 at 10:00 p.m. If you don't watch, there's a chance you will be cursed. Or something.
See the images below:
The 'Dancing with the Stars' pro joins in on a woman's plot
If you're into revenge and weight loss PLUS you'd like to see a cameo from a "Dancing with the Stars" pro, then do we have a clip for you! On tonight's episode of "My Big Fat Revenge" (Oxygen, Tues. at 9:00 p.m.), Lacey Schwimmer joins in with the plot to make a bully cry. Enjoy!
See the poster slither, too
Time for another "American Horror Story: Coven" teaser! This one promises the kiss of death, though no one seems worse for wear in these 28 seconds of creep. Unless you count the snake. If this whets your appetite, so to speak, you can watch the season premiere Wed. Oct. 9 at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
The star says TV's role is to 'provocatively challenge audiences to evolve'
On the surface, "Dads" (premieres Tues. Sept. 17 at 8:00 p.m. on FOX) probably seemed like a basic, even family-friendly, sitcom. Best friends and video game company co-owners Warner (Seth Green) and Eli (Giovanni Ribisi) find their lives derailed when their respective fathers David (Peter Riegert) and Crawford (Martin Mull) move in with them. A home run, right? Not exactly.
Given that Seth McFarlane is the brains behind the operation, it makes sense that buttons would be pushed. What might be more surprising is how unfunny the pilot is. While I wasn't laughing over the small penis jokes and cliched cracks about Asians and Puerto Ricans, nothing else struck me as particularly funny, either -- and apparently I'm not alone in yawning, as plenty of critics have given the show a firm thumbs-down. Still, no one can fault the talented cast doing their best with subpar material -- including Green. I spoke to Green after a heated panel at TCAs, and found his defense of the show more engaging than the show itself. Here's what he had to say about FOX traditions, "All in the Family" and why he thinks the naysayers just don't get it.
