Seth Meyers continued his breakout year Monday night as the host of television's biggest night, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Hosting a major awards show is ostensibly an honor, but increasingly, in the world of live-tweeting, a thankless assignment — and one that was made even more tedious by the fact that this year's Emmy telecast occurred on a Monday. Did Meyers rise to the occasion?

Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and Johnny Galecki
The new deals for The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco, which pay each $1 million per episode, make them the top-earning actors in TV Guide Magazine's annual survey of stars' salaries. But will the trio be the last to...
George R.R. Martin
It turns out George R.R. Martin and the Game of Thrones showrunners aren't the only ones who know how A Song of Ice and Fire will end. Apparently, some exceptionally perceptive fans do too.
While speaking at the Edinburgh International Literary Festival, Martin noted that some readers have correctly puzzled out the ending to the saga, which consists of two more books, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
Sean Bean takes the term workaholic to a new level on TNT's Legends.
The latest action series from Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24) follows Martin Odum (Bean), an agent in the FBI's Deep Cover Operations division who becomes so enmeshed in the personas ("legends") he adopts that the lines between his real and fictional identities start to become blurred.
"This guy ... has a kind of personality disorder, to put it mildly," Bean tells TVGuide.com. "He's a very driven man who creates characters and people from his past experiences. He's very good at it and he totally immerses himself, to a point where he kind of pays quite a big price psychologically."
"Fire in the hole!" production assistants yell as three black SUVs come charging down a Stevenson Ranch, California, canyon. Suddenly, a half-dozen explosive charges ignite around the cars, sending them skidding up to a safe house, where a gun battle between FBI agents and vigilantes ensues. A hooded man sprints out of the shack to free two FBI captives from one of the vehicles and rushes them to an awaiting helicopter.
"So far, there's been a great deal of action," says Sean Bean, the smiling star of...
Eric Lange and Demian Bichir
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday's episode of The Bridge. Read at your own risk!]
Throughout Season 2 of FX's The Bridge, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) has been motivated by one thing: to avenge his son's death — and he finally got the chance to on Wednesday's episode. Did he take it?
Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) is everyone's favorite bastard, but many Game of Thrones fans theorize he's also a prince.
As far as Jon knows, he's Ned Stark's bastard son. But there's speculation that Ned lied about Jon's ancestry and he's actually the son of Ned's sister, Lyanna Stark, and Westeros' former king, Rhaegar Targaryan.
Game of Thrones' biggest unsolved mysteries
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones isn't all blood and gore! This week, HBO released a blooper reel from the show, featuring characters like Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) enjoying some lighter moments on set. In other news, Sarah Palin debuted her new online news channel, and DMX almost had a heart attack on a roller coaster. Plus...
Alexander Siddig, Nell Tiger Free
With the sunny kingdom of Dorne factoring heavily into Game of Thrones' fifth season, it should come as no surprise that the show is filling out that world.
That being said, the HBO drama made a splash at Comic-Con on Friday, announcing the casting of eight new characters for Season 5, including Prince Doran Martell and the Sand Snakes — the hot-blooded and vengeful bastard daughters of Oberyn Martell...
