Question: When dealing with shows like House of Cards (in which an entire season is available at one time), what's your opinion on how spoilers should be discussed? Is every episode fair to be talked about as soon as the season comes out? Should no spoilers be talked about for, say, a week and then every episode is fair game? Or would you treat it more like a traditional series and discuss only one episode at a time? On the receiving end, do you just avoid all spoilers until you've finished watching the entire season? I'm mainly asking this because I'm only up to episode 6 of the new season of House of Cards and am avoiding any article with a spoiler alert, because I don't know just which episodes they may be spoiling. (Thankfully, so far the biggest spoiler I could have had ruined was a very shocking moment in the first episode. I don't gasp very often at a TV show, but I did then.) — Scott

"It's a room full of excitement. It's a room full of sweat," recalls Ellen Burstyn, who won her Oscar in 1975 for Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. "It's your bar mitzvah times a million," says director-writer Jason Reitman, a four-time nominee (Up in the Air, Juno) who remembers getting over his loss with a post-show visit to In-N-Out Burger. (My kind of guy.) "It's a bit like being in a car crash. Everything slows down, everything goes into slow motion," Helen Mirren reflects on the moment her name was read when she won in 2007 for The Queen.

Mindy Kaling for Elle Magazine
Elle Magazine is facing backlash in the wake of its Women in TV issue, with some critics saying the publication intentionally highlighted only Mindy Kaling's face on the cover because she isn't as thin as some of the other honorees.
Gracing the other Women in TV covers are Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel and Allison Williams, all of whom are shown in nearly full-body color shots. Kaling's picture, however, is cropped from the chest up and is in black-and-white. Check out all the covers here.

Question: Announcing a plan to take their top dramas off the air to avoid reruns is one thing, but how do you think ABC is actually going to fare for the next couple of months while Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Once Upon a Time and Revenge take two-month breathers? I am a fan of the airing-consecutively strategy, but I'm afraid they won't stick to this model, because quite frankly, the new shows they are using as substitutes in these timeslots don't look very good. What happens if something bombs? Will they have no choice but to rush these signature shows back to the air sooner?

When Al Higgins took over as showrunner on Mike & Molly in May, executive producer Chuck Lorre posed a question that he couldn't answer.
"We sat down and the first thing Chuck Lorre said to me was, 'Why is Melissa McCarthy a movie star and not a TV star?' And I had no idea," Higgins tells TVGuide.com. "I was stumped. And he said, 'In her movies, people react to her and on the show, she reacts to everyone else.' I thought about that and he was right. He said, 'I want to flip that dynamic.'"
