What to Watch Tonight: It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, The Shining, and 30 Rock (Yes, 30 Rock)

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

What to watch on Wednesday, October 31…

8pm, NBC
30 Rock
NBC’s schedule is all messed up due to Hurricane Sandy, so it’s decided to air this election-themed episode of 30 Rock, “There’s No I in America,” a day early (30 Rock is replacing Animal Practice) instead of pushing it back to next week (as the network is doing with this week’s The Office and Parks and Recreation). Tonight, we’ll see Liz and Jack stage a debate in an attempt to sway Jenna’s political support, and Pete will try to recreate the magic of the 2008 election.
8pm, ABC
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Say it with me now, “I got a rock!” But this classic is anything but. Yes, even though the rest of the Peanuts gang thinks he’s crazy, Linus still believes that the Great Pumpkin will visit him in the pumpkin patch on Halloween—one of these years! A must-watch for the 100th time.
8pm, BBCA
The Shining
From the iconic scene featuring the creepy Grady twins (you know, the last kids you wanted to play with as a kid) to the tidal waves of blood rushing through the hotel halls, this film has enough scenes to frighten you, repeatedly, for life.
8pm, Fox
The X Factor
Since the 2012 World Series ended in four games (woohoo Giants!), The X Factor‘s Top 16 acts will perform live for the first time during a special two-hour-and-seven-minute show airing tonight instead of Thursday, as had been previously scheduled. Here’s hoping the contestants are well prepared to hit the stage one day early.
9pm, CBS
Criminal Minds
Some monsters may turn out to be real in tonight’s episode, “The Good Earth,” in which the team investigates a disturbing case involving a suspect who keeps his victims in stables “like livestock.” Meanwhile, JJ gets upset when her son Henry doesn’t want to celebrate Halloween. What kid doesn’t like free candy? Well, it is a scary world out there…
SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, Syfy
Face Off
Syfy’s horror-makeup reality show couldn’t have picked a better day to announce its winner (hmm, it’s almost like they did it on purpose). In tonight’s special LIVE finale, we’ll find out which of the three remaining contestants (Nicole Chilelli, Derek Garcia, and Laura Tyler) wins last night’s challenge to create two original Halloween-inspired characters: a demon and a good witch. McKenzie Westmore will host, and the finale will reunite all of the season’s contestants.
10pm, NBC
Chicago Fire
In tonight’s “One Minute,” Chief Boden is accused of leaving a homeless man to die in a warehouse blaze after ordering his men to evacuate the premises. Meanwhile, Detective Voight continues to intimidate Casey in hopes of discouraging him from testifying against his son, and Herman loses his temper during a rescue call at a Halloween party.
10pm, FX
American Horror Story: Asylum
A violent storm passes through tonight’s episode, “Nor’easter” (too soon, American Horror Story, too soon!), causing chaos and giving a group of patients a chance to escape from Briarcliff. Plus Sister Jude is haunted by her past, and more Bloody Face!
10pm, ABC
Nashville
In “We Live in Two Different Worlds,” Rayna and Deacon perform at Teddy’s campaign fundraiser, and a woman from Teddy’s past shows up, testing his and Rayna’s marriage. Meanwhile, Juliette works on her public persona by appearing on Good Morning America and Teddy decides to run an “ethical campaign”… but how long will that last?

News Briefs: OMG Disney Bought Lucasfilm and Star Wars

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

MOUSE HOUSE MEETS THE DEATH STAR NEWS

… Holy crap Disney (maybe you’ve heard of it) bought George Lucas’s Lucasfilm for $4 million! Excuse me, $4 BILLION! That means Disney, the media giant that owns ABC, ESPN, Marvel, and It’s a Small World, now owns the rights to the Star Wars franchise and Indiana Jones! Following the announcement, Disney said it’s planning a new Star Wars movie, Star Wars Episode VII: Let’s Make Some Money, for release in 2015. But how does this effect YOU and how does this effect television!? Let’s run through some scenarios…

– At its best, it could mean a Star Wars TV show. There’s been talk about this for a long time, but with Disney (and ABC) owning the rights, it’s that much closer. Of course, Disney’s grittiest network is A & E, so it might not be the program fans are hoping for. Maybe ABC will give The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles another shot?

– At its worst, we get something like The Jar Jar Binks Variety Hour on ABC Family or Howard the Duck: The Show.

– At its silliest, Darth Vader comes to Once Upon a Time‘s Storybrooke and falls in love with Cinderella.

ABC waited a few years before considering S.H.I.E.L.D. for the small screen after Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, so TV productions could be a ways off. Expect this to be a big deal in the film industry immediately, with TV-related announcements coming later. [Disney via press release]
HURRICANE SANDY SCHEDULING CHANGES

… Because of Hurricane Sandy coverage, Private Practice will be bumped this week on ABC. Ditto for NBC’s Go On and The New Normal, which will be back in two weeks because of election coverage next week. Storm coverage will replace the comedies. [Zap2It]

… NBC is re-airing Monday’s episode of The Voice on Thursday night since it was bumped from some major markets due to blackouts and Hurricane Sandy coverage. That means Thursday’s comedy block of 30 Rock, Up All Night, The Office, and Parks and Recreation will be moved. 30 Rock will actually move up a day and replace Animal Practice on Wednesday night, and The Office and Parks will move back to next week. Up All Night‘s move is yet to be determined. This week’s Revolution will also re-air on Friday night. Your best bet is to watch TV non-stop just to make sure you don’t miss anything. [NBC]

… Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are taking a second day off due to the storm, so there will be no new episodes tonight. [NY Post's Twitter]
EVERYTHING ELSE

… Chris Klein (Wilfred) has been cast as the husband of a WME talent agent for an upcoming Fox project. Based on the tell-all blog by Nikki Joel, the comedy will follow a 30-something woman and her crazy marriage to her manly husband. [THR]

Glee‘s Grant Gustin, who plays Sebastian, has booked a multi-episode arc on The CW’s 90210. He’ll play a rich college student. [THR]

… Rebecca Sinclair is back in business with The CW. The former showrunner of 90210 has two projects in the works at the network. The first follows a self-obsessed pop star who comes from a religious family and who reevaluates her lack of faith after a fan says she was saved by the pop star’s words and claims she has divine powers. The second is based on the book The Lost Girls, about a group of women who go eating and praying and loving their way around Cambodia. The CW version will add a mystery to the story when one of the women disappears. [Deadline Hollywood]

Mega Buzz: A Bones Houseguest, a Once Reunion and a Hawaii Five-0 Prequel

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

I’m dying for Bones to come back. Give me some scoop! — Will
ADAM:
The newly single Sweets is moving in with Booth and Brennan! Although the arrangement begins because Booth pities Sweets, who’s been sleeping in his office, Seeley soon becomes less than enamored with his houseguest. Why? Let’s just say it involves a Jacuzzi and some unfortunate timing. Also: Ever wondered what kind of superhero skivvies Booth wears? Wonder no more!

What’s this about Snow and Charming finding a way to communicate between worlds on Once Upon a Time? — Emily
NATALIE:
It’s true. The star-crossed lovers will find a way, but like everything in these worlds, it comes with a price. “They find a direct line of communication that requires a great risk,” Ginnifer Goodwin says. “There’s something very tragic about the fact that the risk that’s taken is potentially a great sacrifice that is made in order to get Emma and Snow White home. There’s something really beautiful about the selflessness that is necessary to communicate.”

I’m looking forward to Danny’s flashback episode on Hawaii Five-0. Are any other characters getting flashbacks? — Terri
ADAM:
As a matter of fact, yes! Executive producer Peter Lenkov tells us that there will be a McGarrett flashback late in the season that is actually a direct prequel to the pilot. “The flashbacks take place hours before the pilot began in Korea,” Lenkov says. “You’ll get to see McGarrett in training as a Navy SEAL. The idea is that McGarrett had actually gone into North Korea with another Navy SEAL, a man who saved his life and was killed there.” So will we see familiar faces as well? “We’re hoping to bring back one of the Hesse brothers,” Lenkov says. “We’ll see what actually happened with Hesse in Korea.”

I can’t believe Fringe is almost over. Got any scoop to cheer me up? — Jeanie
NATALIE:
As the final season inches closer to the end, a familiar face we haven’t seen in quite a while will pop up — and Walter will not be too happy about it. Hit the comments with your guesses as to who’s returning!

Florrick for Governor! What can you say about Peter’s new opponent on The Good Wife? — Janet
ADAM:
As the producers have teased, this individual is definitely someone viewers already know. He or she will be strong in an area where Peter is weak — so much so that the new candidate offers to make Peter the lieutenant governor if he drops out of the race now. Although the most recent affair allegations may be a good reason to quit, don’t expect Peter go down without a fight. (Plus: Alicia’s pretty fired up about it too.)

This season of The Walking Dead has been so bloody! Will things ever let up? — David
NATALIE:
Not even close. In fact, this week’s episode will shock you as not one, but two people are on the chopping block by episode’s end — both making gallant sacrifices for the greater good. Hint: Have some tissues handy, if you can find them.

How long is Mac’s aphasia story line going to last on CSI: NY? — Brenda
ADAM:
Executive producer Pam Veasey says it will take some time, mostly because, as we saw in the most recent episode, Mac is going to be slow to accept other people’s help. “He’s not going to share [his struggle] and what you learn later is that he really needs to share it,” Veasey says. “As we move through the season, he does meet challenges. There are some conflicts with people in the office. Ultimately he does get better, but it’s a challenge and a struggle for him. It’s about: ‘When do you let others help you as opposed to you being the hero helping others?’”

Is Elena going to kill anyone on The Vampire Diaries anytime soon? — Gene
NATALIE: She’s certainly getting closer. When Damon takes her to a Halloween party at a fraternity house on this week’s episode, she enjoys herself a little too much. It’s not until one of her besties shoots her a look that she realizes just how far she’s taken things. The upside? The blood dripping from her mouth kind of looks like it’s part of her costume.

Last week’s Last Resort was intense! Give me some more spoilers! — Steve
ADAM:
As one might expect, shooting the Secretary of Defense isn’t going to be good for Admiral Shepard. “His actions make it harder for Kylie to interact with him,” executive producer Shawn Ryan says. “I mean, he’s dragged away by Marines, and he just shot the Secretary of Defense. It will certainly have consequences.” As for Capt. Chaplin & Co., they may not need the admiral as an ally to sustain their new civilization. Remember those minerals Sophie was testing for? “If they do exist, do they represent a means of surviving for Marcus and the crew?” Ryan teases. “How does it change the way the outside world views them?”

An obvious Arrow question here: How does no one realize that Oliver is Arrow?! — John
NATALIE:
Stephen Amell feels your frustrations, but don’t worry: It won’t be long before that very question is addressed! “It’s like, ‘Hey, he’s shown up to Starling City right at the same time that the vigilante has. How long do they expect us to suspend disbelief?’ I think that we do a good job of presenting questions and that’s an obvious one and it’s not going to take us too long to figure that out,” he says.

What’s going to happen on Homeland now that Brody is a double agent? — Mark
ADAM:
Brody seems to be keeping his word to help the CIA… for now. He’ll give Carrie & Co. some valuable intel about the shop where his suicide vest was made. The real question: Will paranoid Carrie believe Brody, even when he’s telling the truth? Then again, by the end of the next episode, she’ll have a very good reason to be suspicious.

Any Char/Coop scoop on Private Practice? —Heather
NATALIE:
Private Practice is doing one last crossover before the end… sort of. Get ready to put on your dancing shoes because that’s exactly what Charlotte and Cooper will be doing in the upcoming Charlotte-centric episode, in which the duo will shake their groove thing in numbers choreographed by Debbie Allen (aka Jackson Avery’s mom)! (We did say sort of!)

Natalie’s Mega Rave: The return of 3XK on Castle was masterfully done. Even I began to suspect that the ruggedly handsome scribe could be guilty of murder before we learned 3XK had masterminded the whole thing. I’m with Rick: 3XK is definitely not dead — and that makes me both angry and excited.

Adam’s Mini Rant: NBC is shelving Revolution until March? Don’t networks usually try to keep hit shows on the air?

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

Tonight’s Private Practice has been bumped for A Special Edition of 20/20: The Perfect Storm, airing at 10/9c on ABC.  Creator Shonda Rhimes revealed on Twitter that the drama will be back with a new episode on November 13, after the presidential election.

Spoiler Chat: Once Upon a Time, Glee, Gossip Girl and More!

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment
Colin O'Donoghue, Once Upon a Time

Is one of Once Upon a Time‘s ladies about to be hooked on Captain Hook?

Hey, we wouldn’t blame her. Have you seen the dude? Captain Hook is fine, and we’ve got scoop on which lady will be sharing some “interesting” chemistry with the ABC hit’s new bad boy. Plus, we’ve got scoop on a Glee fan favorite’s possible return, Gossip Girl, Bones, Hawaii Five-0 and more in today’s Spoiler Chat…

Riley: When is Max Adler going to return to Glee? If Grant Gustin is coming back because Sebastian still has more story to tell, how can Dave, the boy last seen crying in the hospital after a suicide attempt, not have more story to tell? We have been waiting over eight months now…..Plus, Dave still hasn’t sung!Thank you.
Sorry, Karofsky fans, but as of right now, there are no plans to bring back Max Adler, at least before the new year. But they are still writing season four, and we hear that both parties are open to having the character come back for an episode or two, if it suits the storyline. When we asked Adler about returning back in February, he told us: “I would love it. To have experienced that life and to have this role has just been incredible, and I think it’s really important for people to see it.”

Jentrom15Flicka: Who knew Captain Hook was so sexy?! Is there any scoop on what’s next for OUAT‘s newest bad boy?
What’s next is a journey with Emma Swan that Captain Hook himself, aka Colin O’Donoghue, thinks fans will enjoy very much. “They have a very interesting dynamic between the two of them because Emma is obviously a strong character, strong-willed, and Hook is Captain Hook, you know?” he teases. “So they have an interesting kind of back and forth. That’s all I’m going to say at the minute!” Someone sound the love interest alarm for Emma, y’all!

Darcy: There are so many rumors about the Gossip Girl finale going around! Care to share any scoop on what’s really going down?
We totally would…if we could get anyone to actually talk about it. “There’s so many spoilers out there right now that I really feel like I Can’t talk about it!” Stephanie Savage tells us, though she confirms that there are either flashbacks or flash-forwards in the final hour. As for Josh Schwartz, his lips were also sealed (“There’s a lot that’s already out there unfortunately, and I will leave it at that!”) but did tell us that the show did take steps to throw people (including the pesky paparazzi) off. Translation: Don’t believe everything you hear and see!

James: Got any scoop on Hawaii Five-0?
Danny’s fam is coming to town! Well, his nephew Eric, to be precise. Eric will be paying Danny a visit all the way from New Jersey in episode 13. Hit us up with your casting suggestions in the comments, authentic New Jersey types only, please!

Bones, David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel

Jen: Bones please! Give me something on the beautiful Booth!
Our buddy Booth will have lots to deal with in the upcoming episodes. First, there’s an episode revolving around the 9/11 terrorist attacks that will surely send Bones fans reeling (it’s an emotional episode). And then there’s the episode following that one, where a secret will be revealed. And it will only get juicier from there!

Kassy: Just saw Fun Size and Jane Levy was so awesome in it that it put me in the mood for some Suburgatory scoop!
Your wish is our command! We recently caught up with Jane at that very flick’s premiere, where she teased Tessa’s reunion with her mom, played by Malin Akerman. One thing you wouldn’t expect? A reunion of the teary and emotional kind. “Quite the opposite,” Jane tells us. “I think Tessa doesn’t really know how to deal with it. It’s hard to explain.”

Barbara: I love, love, love you and your amazing spoilers! Not that I want to stop gushing about how much I love you, but can we please get some scoop on Kensi and Deeks on NCIS: LA? Or any scoop you have on that show! Love it!
Thank you, B! Flattery will get you everywhere, don’t ya know? We talked to LL Cool J about what’s coming up this season, and he seemed borderline giddy (or as close as that man can get to “giddy”) about NCIS: LA exploring Hanna’s life and introducing more family and friends, which of course means they’ll most likely be in danger. When we pressed him for more, he only said that the show is about to get “interesting.” How coy of you, sir Cool J! Kidding, we’re not allowed to call him that.

Spoiler Chat: Scoop on Vampire Diaries, Big Bang Theory, American Horror Story and More!

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment
Joseph Morgan, Candice Accola, Michael TrevinoOne gorgeous vampire. Two hot hybrids. What more do you need from a TV love triangle?

The Vampire Diaries‘ love triangle between Caroline (Candice Accola), Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is set to heat up soon, thanks to the arrival of a new wolf in town. So which guy will Caroline be sticking close to in upcoming eps?

Plus, we’ve got scoop on American Horror Story, Go On, Big Bang Theory and more in today’s Spoiler Chat

Mike N.: Loving American Horror Story‘s new season! Any scoop on what’s going on in 2012?
You mean, other than arm-ripping and death, courtesy of Bloody Face? We’ll meet Dr. Gardner, a therapist in episode nine, who is professional and comfortable. Hm…now who would need therapy in the present-day AHS world? In the same episode, only in 1964, we’ll be introduced to a powerful and educated court magistrate as well as a new nurse, Betty.

Moonmoon217: Any Klaroline, pretty please?
The Vampire Diaries‘ resident blonde vampire will getting closer to Klaus after she gets jealous when her BF Tyler keeps a secret from her. A very hot secret: He’s been hiding his werewolf friend Hayley (played by The Secret Circle‘s Phoebe Tonkin) in his house and didn’t tell her. Ouch!

Jordan in Wisconsin: So bummed Breaking Bad is ending soon! It’s the best show on television. Any chance they’d make another 8 or 10 episodes?
Not likely, and Bryan Cranston tells us why that’s a good thing. “My feeling is that movies should be as long as it needs to be to tell the story. And it’s the same thing with a series,” he says. “And I think we’re coming to natural end, so I don’t want it to extend past where we’re going. It is sad, though.” Word, Mr. Cranston. Word. Also, if you haven’t seen him in Argo yet, run to the movie theater now.

Theresa in Boston: What’s coming up on New Normal?
An epic Halloween episode, that is for damn sure. Not only are both Nicole Ritchie and George Takei guest starring, but Bryan will be dressing up in what Andrew Rannells tells us is a “tribute to Honey Boo Boo.” Oh, and did we mention we’ll be flashing back to other Halloweens? That’s happening, too.

THE BIG BANG THEORYDave: Any Big Bang Theory scoop?

The sitcom is taking a cue from its network-brother How I Met Your Mother…as in we’re going to be meeting one of the gang’s mommas in an upcoming episode! Bernadette’s soft-spoken mother, Mrs. Rostenkowski, will make her TBBT debut in episode 10.

Gale: I do the right thing for my country and vote, and watch Scandal. Please give scoop!
You are a true hero to America for watching such a great television show. Kerry Washington told us at the Hollywood Film Awards that she would love to have President Barack Obama on the show, but there is one tiny problem. “He’s such a good guy, and our show is just about the naughty, naughty people.” But someone else is willingly offering their services to the show. It’s Bill Maher, who Washington says has offered his set to their show if they want it to fit Real Time with Bill Maher into the Scandal world.

Rosalyn: Any Go On scoop?
Ryan is getting back out there! Yes, our widower will start dating again soon on the NBC comedy and is doing so with a friend of Carrie’s. While attractive and charming, Hannah can also be a bit of a mean girl and can be pretty self-involved. We’re now taking bets for how short their date will be!

Auggie, steps behind the camera tonight to direct “Man in the Middle,” in which Annie receives intel from Mossad about a scheduled meeting between two terrorists and has only 12 hours to track them down (I hope Brody’s not sending them any texts!).
