Who Shot the Daytime Soap? logo
What went wrong? Daytime soaps are currently enjoying one hell of a ratings renaissance but it wasn't that long ago that they were considered dead as disco. How did such once-mighty shows as Guiding Light, As the World Turns, All My Children and One Life to Live get the ax in quick succession? Were there people at the networks who secretly wanted them gone? If so, why? And how come our beloved soaps are suddenly so damn hot again? Will it last?
It ain't easy being Justified's Boyd Crowder. But creating the character? That's a heckuva good time, both for actor Walton Goggins and exec producer Graham Yost. "He's changed a lot over the seasons," Goggins tells TV Guide Magazine. "That's been so rewarding for me as an actor. And he's got a lot more changes to go."
My Strange Addiction
TLC's human shockfest My Strange Addiction returns for a fifth season on New Year's Day with the one-hour special I'm A Living Doll, which explores the lives of three people who undergo radical plastic surgery, extreme diets and other appearance-altering means in order to look like human dolls.
The special premieres Jan. 1 at 9/8c, followed by two more new episodes at 10/9c. Among the stories explored: A woman who dresses up like a pony every day; a single mother who drinks paint; two identical twins who haven't been apart for more than 30 minutes in 20 years; and a 26-year-old who eats mattresses, consuming a total of eight beds in the past 20 years.
My Strange Addiction continues on Jan. 8 at 10/9c with cases including a 33-year-old man who has spent $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber; a woman who chews on dirty diapers; a man who's hooked on leeches; and a woman who eats an entire palate of eye shadow in one sitting. Who's hungry?
You sci-fi fans sure are a crafty crowd! Responding to Fox and Almost Human's invite to remake the show's extended trailer, droves of viewers submitted their DIY renditions that varied in style, sophistication and, honestly, visual success. Now, the best bits of the batch have been patched together into a full-length clip that plays like a scene-for-scene substitute for the original cinematic promo created by Ari Margolis of Fox's Special Ops marketing brain trust. Just be warned: Some of this stuff is Almost too funny to take in with a single viewing.
LEGOS, little kids playing Kennix and Dorian, a laughable line-reading of "I was made to feel!," and a last-seconds shot of our beloved Fringe vet John Noble? Be still our Human hearts! What do you think of this homemade hybrid?

Two worlds are about to converge on the season finale of Witches of East End.
On the penultimate episode, Joanna (Julia Ormond) destroyed the key to Asgard, the world from which she and her family of witches came. But when a mysterious — and very curious — man named Mike (Enver Gjokaj) showed up to Ingrid's (Rachel Boston) library, he revealed that not only is there a second key located in Fair Haven, but that the key is Ingrid herself. Will Mike use Ingrid to get to the other side? Will Penelope (Virginia Madsen) destroy her son's wedding to Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) so that she can return home to Asgard and reunite with Archibald (Matthew Del Negro)? And will the Beauchamp girls work with their newly discovered father to save everyone? We checked in with both Boston and executive producer Maggie Friedman who answered our burning questions heading into finale.

Megyn Kelly caused controversy Wednesday night when she responded to a Slate article questioning the depiction of Santa Claus as white.
"For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white," Kelly told her viewers on The Kelly File. "But this person is arguing that we should also have a black Santa, but, you know, Santa is what he is — just so you know, we're just debating this."
