To call Anthony Anderson a foodie is a bit of an understatement. The 43-year-old actor has competed on Food Network's Chopped, judged episodes of Iron Chef America, and has vowed to go to culinary school. "Within the next couple of years," Anderson specifies. "The kids will be off at college, the bills will be paid, and I won't have to worry about anything except how I'm gonna make this Alfredo sauce from scratch." So when Food Network was pitched the idea to tour the U.S. in search of the nation's coolest food festivals, they had the perfect host in mind. "I said, 'That's right up my alley, let's make that happen,'" Anderson recalls. The result is Eating America With Anthony Anderson, which premieres Monday, July 28 at 9/8c.
The sound you just heard was about 4,000 Vampire Diaries fans losing their minds over this perfect video that kicked off the show's panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon. Featuring Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder musing over the fate of their characters, Bonnie and Damon, now that they've been sucked into oblivion, the video hits all the right notes and brings up a few good questions. Will we see a bigger storyline for Tyler? Could he be Elena's new guy? What is Alaric gonna do now that he's alive again? And most importantly, are "Bamon" gone for good? (Don't make us laugh!)
Here's the clip, which we're sure those in the San Diego Convention Center's packed Ballroom 20 will want to check out ASAP, since there is no way they heard most of the jokes over their room-rattling screams.
We've always known that Nicki Minaj has a colorful personality, and now she's literally getting animated. The pop star makes a guest appearance on Cartoon Network's adorable Steven Universe next month, and TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive look at the episode, which was just screened at Comic-Con in San Diego.
Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
We've got Marvel-ous news for superhero fans: Disney XD will officially announce today at Comic-Con that two animated series based on Marvel Comics characters have been given second season renewals. Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and Marvel's Avengers Assemble both return with new episodes this fall on Disney XD's "Marvel Universe" block.
Of all things Arrow's Oliver Queen can do, it's his ability to rock our world with nothing but a well-edited sizzle reel that we love the most this time of year. Mainly because it's such a long wait until The CW hit's third season kicks off on Oct. 8, and things like this eye-popping clip—which just debuted during the show's scream-filled panel at San Diego Comic-Con—are really the only thing that are getting us through the wait.
Don't fret, Grounders. If you couldn't make it to The 100's panel at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon, TV Guide Magazine is here for you, and we have this exclusive first look at the sizzle reel that opened the session earlier this afternoon. So sit back and soak in the action as Clarke (Eliza Taylor) takes matters into her own hands after being brought to the ominous Mt. Weather following last season's finale shocker.
Remember when nostalgia used to signify a comforting escape into the past? It hasn't been the same since Mad Men took us beneath the surface glamour to expose the grim consequences of chasing and selling the American dream. WGN America's bold new period drama Manhattan (Sunday, 9/8c) goes even further, eschewing the romantic veneer altogether in a gritty story of scientific mavericks operating in extreme circumstances. Looking back at a bygone time (World War II) with a jaundiced eye, the ambitious Manhattan is far more serious in intent than the channel's more recent effort at historical-fiction original programming, the lurid Salem.
Hide your husbands and your sons! Emmy winner Eileen Davidson is heading back to NBC's Days of Our Lives as maniacal mantrap Kristen DiMera and, as you can see in this exclusive preview clip, she's already roped in Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) — literally.
William deVry, Nancy Lee Grahn
You ask, they deliver. TV Guide Magazine sat down with General Hospital stars William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn — better known as the über-popular Julexis — for a sprawling chat too big for one installment. Part 1 posted last week. Now, in part 2 of the interview, deVry and Grahn answer Twitter questions from their devoted fan base, the Julexis Army.
TV Guide Magazine: Let's start out with a question that's sure to get one of you into trouble. Your fan @EdinaHotdish wants to know: "What's the best and worst thing about working with each other?"
William deVry: Nancy's constant need to protect me on the set.
Nancy Lee Grahn: I have to show him the ins and outs at the studio. He needs help understanding the vibe. He doesn't know how things work. William is like an innocent little puppy.
