The Simpsons Get the White Christmas Blues
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas — but only where The Simpsons live. The long-running Fox series will celebrate the holidays Sunday, Dec. 15 (8/7c) in predictably screwy fashion: Thanks to global warming, there's no snow anywhere in the United States except in Springfield, where a radiation leak at the town's nuclear-power plant has resulted in lots of local white stuff. Cue the price gouging.
Wedding bells may be ringing during the Grey's Anatomy midseason finale on Thursday (9/8c, ABC). But there are a few hurdles for April (Sarah Drew) to get over before she says "I do" to Matthew (Justin Bruening). First on April's list will be getting her best friend and former lover Jackson (Jesse Williams) to show up. But that does not mean the quirky doc is having second thoughts about walking down the aisle.
Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi
Ellen DeGeneres is a funny lady. Even when it comes to rumors of trouble in her own marriage!
On Wednesday's episode of her daytime talk show, DeGeneres addressed a report that she and wife Portia de Rossi are having problems...
Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes
Forget Olitz! Huckleberry Quinn has become one of the most beloved relationships on Scandal. But that all changed last week when Huck (Guillermo Diaz) tortured his protégée Quinn (Katie Lowes). Can their relationship ever be fixed? Maybe, if Quinn shows her true allegiance to OPA by killing Rowan (Joe Morton) as she planned to do at the close of the episode. TVGuide.com turned to Diaz and Lowes to get the scoop on the midseason finale and whether there's actually more to Huck and Quinn's relationship than just being fellow Gladiators and torture aficionados:
Bob Barker may be turning 90, but he still knows how to party. The former Price Is Right host returns to the long-running game show Thursday to celebrate the big 9-0, but Barker got a head start on the festivities.
Stephen Amell and Manu Bennett
[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Wednesday's midseason finale of Arrow. Read at your own risk!]
The real big bad of Arrow's second season was finally revealed!
It turns out Sebastian Blood's (Kevin Alejandro) quest to make super soldiers is under the direction of Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). Sporting his infamous eye patch, Slade was seen in present-day Starling City, telling Brother Blood that he is determined to burn the vigilante's world to the ground. Why does he hate Oliver (Stephen Amell) so much after spending all that time with him on the island? Because, given a choice, Oliver instinctively saved Sara (Caity Lotz) over Shado (Celina Jade) on the island, much to the dismay of Slade, who had harbored feelings for Shado.
But that was the least of the action during Wednesday's midseason finale, which also featured Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) taking one giant leap to becoming the superhero we all know and love. What's next for him and the rest of Team Arrow? Executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti were on hand during a screening of the episode to tease what's next:
Shaun Sipos, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder
Damon Salvatore is heading down a dark path — and he might destroy his relationship with Elena along the way.
In what was an eye-opening episode of The Vampire Diaries last week, Elena (Nina Dobrev) learned some of the history behind the Augustine vampires, including the fact that her boyfriend Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was locked up and tortured for five years. While his anger upon escaping was certainly reasonable, Damon revealed his revenge was to kill every generation of Whitmores, with the exception of one person per family, which also happened to include Aaron (Shaun Sipos)'s parents and aunt. In the final moments of the hour, Damon found himself alone in the cell while Elena was trapped in the lab alongside Damon's former cellmate, Enzo (Michael Malarkey), who had been presumed dead.
