Exclusive clip: Watch how hellish 'Life Below Zero' can be

The NatGeo show takes a raw, dark look at life off the grid

Imagine life without supermarkets. Or roads. Oh, and don't forget the cold (sometimes colder than 60 below) or the bears and wolves. Sounds like one heck of a reality TV show, doesn't it? Actually, it's how some people live in remote corners of Alaska, and they do it on purpose. Of course, that meant someone had to film it. So now we have "Life Below Zero" premiering Sun. May 19 at 10:00 p.m. on NatGeo.

'Scandal' recap: 'White Hat's Back On' for Olivia, but what of the gladiators?

Did you expect the cliffhanger?

I may need to lie down. The season finale of "Scandal" was so packed with ups and downs and twists and turns I may be a little sick to my stomach. Some story lines were tied up with a neat little bow, while others were clearly left in a big, knotted mess for next season. Of course, spoilers galore. I'm just hoping I can keep track of them all.

'Vampire Diaries' recap: The gang survives 'Graduation' but for how long?

What did you think of Damon's big moment?

I was going to say that this finale did an excellent job of keeping the focus on the bloody, beating heart of the series. Yes, there was some nail-biting drama, but mostly it was about big emotional moments. Klaroline. Delena. To a lesser extent, Stelena. Jeremy and Bonnie (they probably have a cute nickname, which you're welcome to mention in the comments). It all felt like (as befit a graduation-themed episode) a sweet and often poignant summing up, moving on and coming together.

Watch the TV show before you read the book!
You know who gets really excited about trees and stuff? People who have never, ever seen them. And hikers. But this show is about how the only humans to survive nuclear Armageddon on earth were those living in space stations, and now their descendants (who are actually being punished, so earth is basically considered juvie) get to come back and see what their grandparents had been whining about missing.

Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, gets the teen treatment
What better way to teach high school students actual history than to slap it on TV and cast a bunch of adorbs teenagers in the important roles? Better yet, history is public domain! So The CW brings us "Reign," which follows Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, through her teen years. Good thing the real Mary wasn't executed until she was, like, old.

Girl meets alien, love blossoms in this new drama

It seems that "Star-Crossed" is really a TV show about interracial love and school busing, but instead of people of color, we get aliens who look like white people with cool tattoos.

The next evolutionary leap of mankind is paranormal

Apparently, hearing voices does not mean you need medication. Maybe. On The CW's new series "Tomorrow People," the next generation of humans is born with paranormal abilities. Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices (see?) and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.

'So You Think You Can Dance' recap: The show heads to 'Audition City #2'

Detroit is the destination, and the talent is (mostly) hot

Detroit! Otherwise known as "Audition City #2," as stated in the episode title. Was that considered too big of a reveal? Did Fox think people would tune in, then see "Detroit" in the title and switch channels? I guess that will remain a mystery, but the good new is that TWitch is in the house! With Nigel and Mary. The producers had better not wear out poor Mary. She had cancer. Be nice, for crying out loud. But I guess the "nice" part of Detroit was giving Mary some time with the male exotic dancers. Good thing she didn't have heart problems.
