Question: The zombie apocalypse starts up again on The Walking Dead in less than a week. Aside from stockpiling water and canned goods, should I be preparing myself to say goodbye to one (or more!) survivors in the first episode? —Shannon
Ausiello: There is a lot of death in the first two episodes, but I’m not saying how major or minor they are. I will say that this particular departure is still a ways off. Bonus Scoop: The midseason finale — aka Episode 8 — is tentatively (and ominously) titled “Made to Suffer.”

Question: Will Carol and Daryl finally seal the deal on The Walking Dead? —Jason
Ausiello: They’re certainly headed in the right direction: The two share a sweet — dare I say flirty — moment in Sunday’s premiere.

Question: Dexter is killing it this season. Scoop? —Jeffrey
Ausiello: Oct. 21. Mark your calendar. Dex makes one of his most memorable kills in some time.

Question: Any Meredith and Derek scoop that you can give us Grey’s Anatomy fans? —Tia
Ausiello: If Ellen Pompeo has any say in the matter, Derek will soon replace Cristina atop Mer’s “Person” list. “It’s not very realistic that a married woman would have her best friend be her No. 1 before her husband,” the actress shares. “I guess if you’re 20. But for a grown woman, your No. 1 person should be your husband — or what’s the point of getting married? Your significant other should be your significant other, so hopefully we’ll transition into that.” Where do you stand on this issue? Does Pompeo make a good point? Should Derek be Mer’s “Person” over Cristina? Hit the comments!

Question: I’ll take any scoop on my favorite shows Grey’s Anatomy, Dexter, Private Practice, Cougar Town, Community, New Girl, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Girls, The Newsroom, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, The Office, Doctor Who, Sherlock or Glee. If that’s not possible I’ll settle for scoop on my non-favorite-but-still-watch-them-anyway shows HIMYM, Modern Family, TBBT, Revenge and… heck I’ll just add America’s Next Top Model because it’s a guilty pleasure. —Ilona
Ausiello: Ilona, you’re a greedy whore who’s about to get a VD surprise: Did you check out our exclusive photo of Mystic Falls’ newest badass vampire hunter, Connor (Todd Williams)? Like many things on the show, he’s not all that he appears to be. “He’s got a history that presents a bit of a mystery that needs unraveling,” teases EP Julie Plec. Bonus Scoop 1: Episode 2 will hint at a connection between Connor, Jeremy, and Connor’s mysterious [spoiler!]. Bonus Scoop 2: I think we’re going to meet Bonnie’s “protective” father in Episode 10.

Question: I’ve just recently watched every episode of Nikita and I am now suffering from “Post-Show Syndrome” (it’s a real thing). A Nikita scoop may not cure me but it could ease my pain, especially if it involves Alex. —Stephanie
Ausiello: The Season 3 premiere airing Oct. 19 features an unexpected development that will make “Mikita” fans very happy (see photo, right, for a possible clue). The Oct. 26 episode, meanwhile, features an unexpected development that will have Alex fans doing this.

Question: Any idea what brings Billy Baldwin back to Gossip Girl? Also, when does he return? —Jess
Ausiello: Serena’s dad resurfaces in Episode 7, but we’ll quickly learn his tentacles have been stirring one particular pot all season long.

RELATED | Gossip Girl First Look: Giddy Up, Chuck and Blair!

Question: Do you have any scoop on next week’s episode of Gossip Girl? –Danielle
Ausiello: Three scoops, actually. 1) Unless the censors at The CW get cold feet at the last minute, Georgina says something to Dan that includes the words “raw” and “hard.” 2) Serena is a closet Millionaire Matchmaker addict. 3) Jenny gets a shout-out (kinda).

Question: Will Chuck and Blair get married in the Gossip Girl series finale? —Annie
Ausiello: Don’t know. I will say that one of them will fail to accomplish an important item on their pre-engagement to-do list, potentially rendering their little agreement null and void.

Question: In Glee‘s “Break-Up” episode, it was left pretty ambiguous what exactly Blaine did with Eli. Was that the intention? Are we to decide for ourselves if it was sex or something less severe? —Matt
Ausiello: Darren Criss tells me he has “his own theory” about the exact nature of Blaine’s infidelity. “It’s very open-ended,” he concedes. “We don’t know who this person is or what this decision was.” Regardless, Criss hopes that if the “Klaine” split does indeed stick, “I would love to see them be a part of each other’s future relationships…. If Kurt meets someone new and they are having some problems, I hope Blaine is the person that Kurt calls and says, ‘This is really tough for me.’ And vice-versa. If Blaine meets somebody, he goes to Kurt. That happens in real life with all kinds of relationships. You create a bond with somebody and regardless of what happens, in the end the bond is there for the rest of your life. And I think that’s an excellent message to show young people: The end doesn’t mean it’s the end. It’s just a new chapter.”

Question: I have a super-great idea. How about some positive Finchel scoop? How many times can Glee break my heart?! —Lauren
Ausiello: Cory Monteith isn’t giving up on the couple, so neither should you. Asked if he thinks “Finchel” is done for good, he quickly replied. “I don’t. It’s hard when you get attached to someone.” In the meantime, exec producer Brad Falchuk confirms that Finn will eventually get a new love interest. “The idea is yes, it’s interesting to have him find someone,” he says. “I don’t know if it has to happen so soon — certainly not in the first nine or 10 episodes — and we don’t know who it’s going to be yet. But we’re kicking around a few ideas.”

Question: I love, love, love Ray Romano on Parenthood and have been scouring the Internet looking for scoop on when his “multi-episode arc” will wrap up. Can I expect to see him through most of this season? —Amanda
Ausiello: Hank will be around for most of the season, much to the dismay of poor Mark. And even though Sarah’s personal and professional partners have yet to come face to face, Jason Ritter says the situation nonetheless remains very awkward. “We’re trying to suss each other out,” he explains. “He can’t quite figure out why she’s with me, and I can’t quite figure out what their thing is.” Despite the Hank complication, Sarah and Mark are about to take a big step forward. “There’s talk of moving in together,” previews Ritter, “and what that means for her son, Drew. Living with your teacher is probably not the coolest thing for a kid who’s already self-conscious at school about his mom dating a teacher. So Mark tries to win over Drew over, who’s a little standoffish. But I’m working on him. I’ll crack him.”

Question: I’m really loving 666 Park Avenue. Do you have any new scoop? —Tyler
Ausiello: We’ll soon learn that “Jane is a little more attuned to the supernatural world than we think,” previews Rachael Taylor. “There’s a very complicated, intricate reason why she can feel and experience these spooky secrets of the building more so than [most]. Basically, Jane may have her own connection to The Drake.” (Now read that sentence again while listening to this.)

Question: Dude, I loved the season finale of Necessary Roughness! Any hints you can give me about what happens when they come back in January? —Jaime
Ausiello: You’ll have a gay ol’ time! “We’re doing a storyline where a football player comes out,” USA Network co-prez Jeff Wachtel told TVLine at Friday’s GLSEN Awards in Los Angeles. “It’s beautifully done, really smart and we’re really proud of it.” Who do you think is high-tailing it out of the closet? Place your bets in the comments!

Question: I seem to be the only one that wants Revenge‘s Emily and Daniel together. Any scoop you can give me on them? —Karen
Ausiello: I can tell you someone who definitely doesn’t want those two to reunite: Ashley. And while I hear that she and Daniel settle into more of a real relationship by Episode 6 – though their pairing certainly doesn’t seem like anything more than convenience/opportunity right now — portrayer Ashley Madekwe teases that her character’s got a big development coming her way. “We know where she says she’s from, but we don’t know if she’s lying,” says the fashionable actress. “We don’t know how she got to the Hamptons, what she’s doing there or who she’s really working for.”

RELATED | Revenge First Look: Who Has Jack in Tears?!

Question: I love the idea of Adrienne Barbeau as Victoria’s mom on Revenge. Any other intel you can share on her arrival? — Jo
Ausiello:  Mmm-hmm. Besides giving us Sheila in present tense (emphasis on “tense”), the flashback-happy primetime soap will also introduce us to Mommie Dearest in her younger days, when she was still a blue-collar babe shortchanging her kids in hopes of striking pay dirt with whatever Richie Rich’s wallet happened to be open.

Question: I am a huge fan of Downton Abbey and was wondering if you could give any scoop on Sybil/Branson or Mary/Matthew? — Caitlin
Ausiello: Them specifically, no. However, I do have some tantalizing teases about Season’s 3’s Christmas episode (known here in the States as the season finale). For one thing, “It’s not set at Christmas,” Hugh Bonneville tells us. “It goes out to Christmas, but it’s not set at Christmas. It has a very different flavor [and] lots of thrills and spills along the way.” Adds Brendan Coyle: “It’s very, very romantic and deeply heartbreaking. It’s very Downton.” If it’s so very Downton, it must end with a cliffhanger, yes? “I can’t give that away,” Bonneville insists. “[But] the end is phenomenal.”

Question: When is Max Adler going to return to Glee? They can’t honestly think Dave’s story is over. They left him in a hospital bed after he tried to kill himself! A little dream sequence is not a happy ending or any kind of resolution! — Ally
Ausiello: Did someone ask for a Happy Endings scoop? Because have I got a doozy of one! Max is going to hook up with Dave and Jane! Okay, not the Dave and Jane but a coupla guys who could pass for their long-lost twins. Cue Twilight Zone theme in 3, 2….

Question: Rutger Hauer on True Blood? Count me in! Any other Season 6 casting prattle you can share? — Tiff
Ausiello: Not only is the show casting an oily Rick Perry type to play the recurring role of Texas’ governor — perhaps an instigator of a human/vampire war? — it’s casting a Southern belle to play his twentysomething (and presumably less oily) daughter.

Question: I’m so excited we get a fifth season of Southland. Any scoops? — Tom
Ausiello: When the show returns, a new cop will be walking the beat: Lucero, a Mexican-American native of East L.A. whose POV of the city is colored by his experience of it. Lucero also — if you ask me — should be played by Jay Hernandez.

Question: Can I get a Suburgatory tease or two? —Jennifer
Ausiello: How about three! In Episode 7, someone will have moved out of their home, another Chatswin resident gets kidnapped and two characters will have a dance-off. Just business as usual in the ‘burbs.

Question: The ending of Sunday’s amazing Homeland properly made me go, “I need to see the next episode now!” Got any scoop? —Jack
Ausiello: The next episode (airing this Sunday) contains about 13 ZOMG! moments, not to mention tour de force performances from Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Morena Baccarin. I tweeted this over the weekend but it bears repeating: It’s hands-down the best episode of the series to date. Yes, even better than “The Weekend.”

  1. Hey on Bones we’ve seen it twice but will there ever be a third round of Bones and Booth Dancing and Singing Hot Blooded by Foreigner?

  2. Raquel says:

    It’s so great to know that Ellen (and Patrick) really understand how things should be and fight for it. Mer/Cris relation is unhealthy. Like Ellen said if they were teens we could accept that but they are married now that codependent relation shouldn’t exist. It’s great to have friends and no one said Mer/Der couldn’t have friends, Der and Mark had a great friendship, Mer/Alex have a really beautiful relation but M/C is just too toxic. If only Shonda could listen to what Ellen and Patrick!

    • tripoli says:

      So she should just give up the intensity and comfort of a friendship because she is married? That’s just stupid. There is nothing wrong with having an equally strong bond with someone other than your spouse. Sure, there may be moments where her focus could be Derk instead of Cristina, but there is no reason it should have to be one or the other or that her relationship with one is unhealthy and toxic and therefore should take a back seat. Lets not pretend that the Meredith and Derek relationship hasn’t been just as toxic a lot of the time they’ve been together.

  3. praise says:


  4. Renee says:

    Oh can’t wait for Nikita!

  5. Siren says:

    Reading this new spoilers of Glee, Unfortunatly, I do not think they have learned from season 2. I would call Fuinn 2.0 the longest, stupidest, most pointless, dragged out storyline ever. I’m just not willing to stick around for that again. None of the spoilers we’ve gotten have me interested in tuning in again after the hiatus. Boo Glee.

  6. KarlaScio says:

    I adore Cory (the most underrated actor on Glee) and I am so happy with this news. Finally he will be given some storylines that don’t involve him cheering on Rachel. So sick of that.

    • Marcela says:

      Season 3 was such a waste when it came to Finn. A rushed actor dream storyline, they only spent one episode dealing with his dad crap, and the rest was Finn telling Rachel what a star she was and how imporant she was. It was sickening. If they find somebody likeable and make it interesting I see this becoming a big hit!

  7. Kay says:

    I think the only people dissapointed with the Finn news are clingy finchel shippers. I think this is a great thing and will be much more interesting than Rachel and Brody. I also hope Finn gets a proper storyline – without Rachel. Here’s to hoping!

    • haha says:

      Just read through the FINCHEL IS FOREVER comments and laugh dear. It’s what I do.

    • Danica says:

      It won’t be any more interesting than Rachel/Brody if they hire someone just as ineffectual as Brody’s portrayer for Finn. If that’s where the bar is set chances are it will be just as frustrating to watch as Fuinn 2.0. Be careful what you wish for.

  8. methodacting says:

    GO FINN! only character I care about anymore. Hope he gets a hot chick to love and/or bang.

    • Genny says:

      Me too. The only reason I’m still watching this show is to catch the handsome Mr Cory Monteith in action. So glad Finn is finally back. The first 3 episodes have been the most boring Glee ever.

  9. Ann says:

    They did an incredibly stupid thing with this whole OOC Blaine cheating story line. If they have any sense at all, they’ll try to retcon it into Blaine flirting and sharing a kiss with Eli and then refusing to do more, consumed with guilt, and try to salvage this amazing, inspirational couple and save them from being like any other couple on the show. I was so disappointed with the lazy writing and unimaginative “twist”. And we all know Klaine are going to get back together, so it was totally unnecessary, when they could’ve just broken them up for more in-character reasons.

    • daved says:

      And for some reason. I like it.
      Since when did blaine become more interesting than kurt?

      • anne says:

        It kills me how Blaine gets sooooo many songs and Kurt barely gets any, even when it’s his own storyline. I mean where is the balance?

        • daved says:

          I’m already bored with Kurt and his Vogue stuff, and I don’t like SJP.
          I don’t care whether he sings. but he obviously will at some point, So I wouldn’t really worry if I were you.. his rate of songs get has always been constant and never really increased of decreased too much, and he gets more than Artie and Tina by a mile. Despite them being better singers. /shrugs/

    • Leo says:

      There’s nothing OOC regarding Blaine because he actually HAS NO CHARACTER, since the very beginning… he has always been a plot device and his writing has always been bipolar, at the very least:

      1- first he was a senior, then a sophomore…
      2- he was afraid of attending Prom with Kurt due to a gay-bashing at a dance some years ago (when did that happened anyway? when he was twelve?… after decreasing his age, that story doesn’t make sense anymore), but he had no trouble serenading a guy in public at the GAP store a few months before (sigh)…
      3- he was an “out & proud homosexual”, but a simple drunken kiss at a party made him have “bisexuality issues” :S
      4- in this same point, despite his “out & proud” stance and encouraging Kurt to “stand for himself”, he later tells Kurt to “tone himself down” and “fit” at Dalton…
      5- he’s introduced as a sensitive, caring and emotionally mature gay guy, only to have him portrayed later as “clueless” in romance and saying Kurt how “unsexy” he is…
      6- he is completely oblivious of Kurt’s romantic feelings, then he falls madly in love after hearing him sing about a dead bird (in that sense, Kurt’s rendition of DCFMA in “Special Education” was FAR superior and a more logical choice to make Blaine fall for him if the writers were going down that route in the first place)
      7- he makes a big fuss over Kurt receiving text messages from Chandler… but he had no issues when chatting with Sebastian on Facebook, and now he is portrayed as a cheater…
      etc, etc, etc…

      Is all a big mess, which doesn’t show evolution nor character growing, because is like each new fact contradict previous ones, and I really like Darren Criss, he is an extremely talented actor and performer, but seriously, RIB is wasting his talent for comedy here (oh, the irony! they barely give him funny stuff to do!) with all this erratic BS. What’s clear in the end is that the writers and producers of Glee have NO IDEA of what are they doing with their own characters, is like they decide things as the filming is about to take place, with everything being improvised… and they film a lot of scenes only to be dropped later for no reason (the “rubber ring” scene anyone?).
      They plan something at all? This new season says “no”.
      Does RIB know the word “continuity”? ……………

      • daved says:

        All that shows me, is that Blaine is not the “perfect prince charming” everybody wants for Kurt to stick his rod in.

        But why should he be? Why should his character accommodate Kurt in every way? If anything, THAT is what makes it one-sided.

        You’re not Blaine. Your POV, is not necessarily his. You think DCFMA would make him fall in love more than Blackbird? Don’t forget that they’d barely known each other at that point. And kurt hadn’t dressed himself like Criss Angel nor called him out about solos and challenged him.

        • kaley says:

          “Why should his character accommodate Kurt in every way?”
          He doesn’t have to accomodate him in every way. In a relationship you have to compromise. But he at least should treat him with respect. So far Blaine is just very self-centered and expects his boyfriend to build his whole life around any of his whims. This is what is one-sided concerning Klaine and that’s not how relationships work. The cheating was the final demonstration of disrespect towards Kurt, throwing something away to a random guy that “didn’t mean anything” that clearly was very important and private to Kurt, and even passive-aggressively blaming Kurt for it, cause “he wasn’t there”. Wow. This guy needs to grow up, stat.

    • kaley says:

      While I agree, that this solution was lazy writing and the cheating totally unnecessary, I hope they won’t retcon it. Blaine would look like a complete tool for creating this huge dramatic scene in the first place and not making himself clear on what actually happened on various opportunities provided later. I also don’t think it was OOC for Blaine to cheat, just the way it came about seemed completely bizarre to me. Considering Blaine‘s behavior in the past, I would have expected a drunken misstep, not a premeditated hook up via facebook. But whatever, I’m afraid they’ll gloss over the conflicts anyways, like so often before, because they’ll pander to fans again and reunite them despite all what happened.
      That aside I think Klaine would offer more interesting storylines when broken up: We could see Blaine dealing with the loss of someone he considered his soulmate and love of his life. How will it change him? How will it influence a future relationship? How will Kurt deal with the betrayal of his trust? How will he be able to trust anyone again for a future relationship? How will they deal with their relationship? Will they avoid each other? Will they be able to talk to each other again?
      The bottom line would be: Cheating destroys trust and can damage relationships beyond redemption. Think twice before you do something stupid and risk losing someone that means the world to you.
      That would be a good message to send and offer material for more than a season to come. And Blaine could learn something for a future relationship, ergo character growth.
      On the other hand, getting them together again would basically say: You can betray someones trust in the most horrible way, they’ll finally forgive you despite the pain you put them through, because… you are considered attractive by a bunch of mostly tween girls on the internet, so you have a behavioral free pass? I don’t think so. There’s also hardly room for character development: Blaine would learn nothing, because his misstep will have no consequences in the long run. Kurt will continue to be the ever forgiving martyr and get character assassinated over this, because the Kurt we know would never take a cheating boyfriend back.
      Knowing Glee the second option is probably what will happen, unfortunately. They will reunite an continue to be the same boring couple as before, just even more flawed because another huge conflict will have been glossed over to keep up the apperance of the perfect couple Klaine has never been in the first place.

  10. Mike says:

    No Once scoop…darn, to be honest out of all the shows I watch it is the only show I can’t wait a week to watch, I’m addicted. And am I te only one that was glad GOssip Girl fans didn’t hog the comments, of course glee did, for once I wish commenter would comment on better shows

  11. Sarah says:

    Thank you so much for the spoiler about Chuck and Blair. They love each other and they will solve their issues at the end. They are getting married in the last episode. I’m sure.

  12. Ash D says:

    Ugh can Klaine be over for good? Darren thinks they should just be friends but with their destructive relationship, I doubt they’ll be able to salvage that. And no one cares about Finchel or Finn. Praying for the poor soul that ends up being Finn’s new love interest.

    • Ricardo says:

      And no one cares about Finchel or Finn – umm yeah because that is why Finn trended worlwide during each episode (even the ones he was not in) and like 4 times during the 4th ep….more than any other character lol

  13. Jen says:

    THANK YOU ELLEN POMPEO for finally speaking up for how most MerDer fans everywhere feel!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Nobody is saying that Meredith and Cristina cannot be best friends or have a close friendship but it is completely unrealistic and unhealthy that Meredith would put her best friend’s needs and desires before those of her own husband’s! It is completely unacceptable that Meredith would leave Derek’s side when his best friend…practically brother…is dying just so she can run and be with her “person” Cristina! Every time I hear that term on the show it makes me want to throw up! That one scene in the premiere where she abandoned him made me sick and just ruined the entire episode for me…to the point that I did not even care about watching the rest of it! I wanted Meredith to go to Derek in that moment and she didn’t so I did not care what happened after that!

    This crap of Cristina popping in at their house all the time needs to stop…no more of Cristina hopping in the middle of their bed and all that crap because it has gotten way out of hand in the last few seasons! Derek needs to be Meredith’s “person” and the person who she always turns too and some definitive boundaries need to be set in the Meredith and Cristina friendship! Their friendship is great in the right context but it needs to stop crossing the line. I really hope Shonda Rhimes is reading this and that she sees how Ellen and Patrick,,,AND the fans of the show…feel about this. She needs to make some major changes there and start treating Meredith and Derek’s marriage with more respect and have them both act like mature adults! Their marriage comes first!

    • Donna says:

      Cristina didn’t hop in their bed until she was invited there by Meredith. Mer could have gotten up and went to the living room to talk to Cristina. No consideration shown for her husband waking up to his wife’s “person” in his bed.

      • Amy says:

        You both don’t agree, yet are making the exact same point. The Meredith/Cristina relationship, in particular over the last several seasons has gone from endearing to one of unbelievable codependency that should be at the very least lightened up a ton. I’m glad the actors are now speaking out, though again I am doubtful Shonda will stop making this relationship of Cristina and Meredith anything but overplayed and dysfunctional not only for them as characters, but their husbands in the SLs as well sadly.

  14. CJ says:


  15. Karen says:

    Really? You want to call one of your readers a whore? Gosh. How enlightened of you.

  16. hulkhogan says:

    Finn getting a new love interest might be one of the most exciting things to happen to the 4th season. I hope they get it right.

  17. Kim says:

    Really Ausiello? Calling one of your readers a greedy whore just so you could use a cheap and unoriginal VD joke? Here’s some scoop for you Ausiello – just because you are gay it does not make it ok for you to call a woman a whore, even in jest. Wise up and even better, have some class an apologize. It is never ok to call a woman a whore.

  18. Ed says:

    Necessary Roughness! Any hints you can give me about what happens when they come back in January? —Jaime
    Ausiello: You’ll have a gay ol’ time! “


  19. MJ says:

    Lucero is a dude?!! wtf Southland! Lucero is a woman’s name. Actually one of the most famous actresses in Mexico is named Lucero, so a guy being named like that would be really weird.

    • Carl says:

      I hope “Lucero” is actually the guy’s last name… it would be VERY weird to the hispanic audience if that’s not the case… like having a girl named “Miguel” XD

  20. Corinne says:

    “We know where she says she’s from, but we don’t know if she’s lying,” says the fashionable actress. “We don’t know how she got to the Hamptons, what she’s doing there or who she’s really working for.”

    I do know that I don’t care.

  21. Mari says:

    No Castle scoop this time.. But maybe for the next round, Can you please tell me what’s going on in those promos for episode 5 – probable cause – where Castle is holding a gun and Beckett is hurt?

  22. Annie says:

    I think Ellen Pompeo talked by herself, I mean for Ellen (and Im agree with her) is her husband first, but not for Meredith, and this is a tv show people not real life. And if really Ellen and Patrick are so interested in their story lines then they could do anything about it but both said that their first reason to renew was THE MONEY!!!!!!!! They dont care the stories even Ellen always says that she dont involves in the story of Meredith, she does her work everyday and that’s all. Every time that she answer about the show always say that she dont knows anything about what coming..

    • Monic says:

      Word. They renewed their contracts only for money, but now pretend to be interested in their stories and everything is Shonda and writters fault right? If they really care their stories then could put that in first place in their contracts but not, was all about money. Sorry but it’s true.

      • G says:

        Ellen and Patrick always fought for their storylines, for the adoption storyline, they even went out for dinner with the head of writers for after the trail mess. Ellen even said it’s unrealistic in s7 when April and Jackson moved in with her. Money or not they always speak the truth, no ass kissing and want the best for Meredith and Derek.

        • Amy says:

          So much WORD. Patrick and Ellen have been fighting for their SLs for years. In S7, when PD/EP weren’t happy with the “Mer changes the clinical trial results” SL they both spoke out about it and then publicly met with show producer Tony Phelan to try to make the outcome the best they could for themselves and fans. Ellen spoke out about her character during the drowning episodes. Dempsey was completely outspoken publicly about the Addison/Derek SL in S2 and how he never got why Derek would stay. This is not a money thing. These two actors have always fought for their stories (as Sandra Oh does as well) and have been known for it long before Ellen/Patrick said anything recently. That they care so much has to speak about it is something I really like about some of the S1 actors really.

          • Jessica says:

            Agree with both of you. They’re just both so awesome and want what’s best for their characters and are not afraid to speak about it.

  23. Lore says:

    I just want Finchel together ASAP. <3

  24. Sean says:

    I can’t wait for Southland to return – one of the best shows on TV!

  25. Steve says:

    Someone asked for Game of Thrones spoliers…hmmmm…seeing as how close they have been sticking to the books on major plot points, at least so far, I think all you need to do is read them and you will get all the spoilers you want.

    • Lauren says:

      This “witty” retort is getting old. Actually, correction, it IS old. We get it. You are bRaInY and read the books. Some of us don’t care to. We watch TV and this is a TV site, not

  26. Why is it the only shows people are talking about on here are Glee, Grey’s Anatomy and Gossip Girl? A couple comments about the show 666, but the rest is all about the silly soapy shows, which is just full of air heads and fluff writing and acting, their silly shows, especially Glee and Gossip Girl too! The Walking Dead is the one I am interested in here, I probably would be with 666, but I didn’t know it was on already! This is why good shows like Fringe get canceled while reality shows and shows like Glee and Gossip Girl keep on going even after they run out of any real story lines! Those shows are just about people screwing each other and screwing each other over while stabbing each other in the back! most of characters aren’t even likable, especially Gossip Girl!

    • tripoli says:

      Because those are the shows that this site know will get the most comments. Any article like this that mentions Glee or Gossip Girl will be full of back and forth snarking from the fans. Lots of site visits. With you on The Walking Dead, although now that I am without cable I will have to avoid any potential spoilers at all costs. Enjoy the new season!

    Emily and Daniel! The Ashley character is like a fly buzzing in the background, you know its there but you don’t really care.

  28. Sg.Grant says:

    I absolutely hated Ray Romano in everything I’ve ever seen him in. That said, I am loving him in Parenthood. He is perfect for the show.

    I want more Hummelberry in NYC

  30. Shevy says:

    If you are familiar with the comic series of The Walking Dead you know that Rick’s wife and the new baby die at the prison. Given this season will take place at the prison I would venture to say that Laurie is the series regular death this season

    • Kate says:

      Maybe, but the writers have said many times that they’re not following the comic exactly,and have changed things up for the show.

      • Shevy says:

        They have changed things, but the characters that died in the comic have died in the series. They did kill Dale off a little earlier than in the comics but I think that was to avoid and ill conceived romance with Andrea. They also kept Shane longer, but again that was more for dramatic effect. I do think that killing Laurie would open the show up to many more storylines. Namely a romance between Andrea and Rick; it’s also an easy way to get rid of the baby who, let’s face it, probably wouldn’t fair well during a zombie apocalypse, slows the group down, and could easily attract walkers with it’s cries.

  31. Marco says:

    I know that there are no news on the Max Adler/Dave Karofsky front (even though they reopened an already closed storyline for a PSA and now claim it closed like it was before they reopened it; how stupid are they???), but the way of breaking the HE scoop was kinda rude. How about “Sorry, no news; how about a Happy Endings scoop to cheer you up?”?

    And Klaine as BFF… that just might work, seeing as they were the gay Finchel (aka the worst gay relationship I’ve seen in a long long while) when they dated and I hope they realized their mistake with Klaine (starting the relationship in the first place, and then it becoming quite triggering – sorry but there’s NO WAY Blaine can not come out as a douche or worse from the car scene in TFT – etc, etc), but I’m afraid because Glee doesn’t think friendship are actual serious bonds…

    • Filteredout says:

      The only triggery thing that glee has ever done is Dave Karofsky.

      • Leo says:

        ohh please, again with the “Karofsky is soo triggering!” thing, yet being an emotionally abusive egotistical brat (and now a cheater) has a free pass… because “Blaine is soo cuuuuute!!!” … :P duh! the only thing revealed with this kind of shallow comment is how superficial are the people who write them, judging characters based only on the external side of things… maybe they need in RL what they want so much in fiction: their own personal hot cute cheater ;)

  32. Marie says:

    Thanks for the Vampire Diaries scoop! I’m so excited for Jeremy’s story this year. And I’m looking forward to seeing Connor on the show too.

  33. ishwar says:

    I find it mindboggling how a few people don’t like finchel and ship other couples! Klaine, are the most boring couple to ever exist. Sometimes I have to remind myself that they aren’t just friends, because they really seem like that. Brittana confuses me. I mean, I don’t think they truly love each other. and I don’t mean that in a bad way its just. Well there’s nothing there. Finchel are the only couple, where I look at them and go WOW! they’ve been through a lot, they have history. they have TRUE love. For me disliking finchel is like disliking Ross and Rachel. They are the core couple! Get your head examined people!

  34. Holly says:

    So funny that Darren just wants a Klaine split up and Cory is perfectly happy for things to work out for Finchel. IDK, I just don’t see the point for Finn to have someone else when he just needs to focus on himself. Same with Rachel too, if they throw her with Brody it will be so underwhelming after last epsiode. I guess unless they have someone like Julianne Hough come in for a few eps for Cory then lets just let them focus on themselves.

  35. Lainey says:

    Wow so with that Glee scoop I am even less interested in the show. I think the last epsiode showed us that Finn and Rachel need to grow as individuals before reuniting and that growth doesn’t need to be done with new people. I want to see them rediscover each other not move on to new people. I guess I will tune out until things make sense to me. Sigh

    • Danica says:

      I agree with this completely. They can’t grow together, but they can with other people who don’t know them as well? Yes Glee, that makes sense (eye roll). I’m perfectly fine with them having separate stories that allow them to grow, leading to them finding each other again eventually. What I object to is yet more 3rd party interference. It’s just a cheap ploy that everyone sees through and no one wants experience again.

      • F. Dillinger says:

        Correction: you don’t want to see your ship dating other people.

        • Danica says:

          When it completely goes against the story as the writers themselves have set up, absolutely I do. The writers have established that these two characters need to grow as individuals outside of their relationship. Tossing them both into new relationships so soon after their breakup belies that idea. It’s no so much that I object to Rachel and Finn in relationships with others. On the contrary, I think it might be interesting to see what they are like with other people. Only the guy they hired as Rachel’s love interest can’t act and my son’s pet hamster has more charisma than he does. This is Lea Michele and Glee can’t do any better for her than him? Please. Let’s face it – the writing is no longer there, so it’s incumbent upon the actors’ selling talents to carry the show . . . and that guy is the one Glee hires for their lead actress? Therefore I trust even less that they’d hire someone who can keep up with Cory. Finn and Rachel haven’t been single for a long time. Let them AND the audience find out who they are outside of a relationship.

  36. seriously says:

    it’d be nice to explore a glee storyline without introducing love interests, just saying…

  37. Kay says:

    I’m interested to see Finn discover something he is passionate about and get some direction, and I think having someone else be interested in him would do good things for his confidence, but at the same time I’m a Finchel fan and the thought of them with other people all season doesn’t give me that good Glee feeling. And it’s a bit of a waste of the amazing chemistry Cory and Lea have. They act so well opposite each other.

  38. Nikki says:

    Finn needs to find himself, not another girl. Glee doesn’t write third parties well as proved in season 2 when Finn inexplicably went back to the girl who cheated on him and lied about it and would’ve ruined his life had someone not taken it upon herself to expose the lie. And the new guy with Rachel this season feels like a brick with a sculpted bod that Rachel has had chained to her leg and has been dragging around so that he can occasionally pop up and tell her how sexy she is. Finn’s new love interest will probably be another CW wannabe who can’t really act and will be such an obvious stall that I won’t be able to keep my eyes from rolling back in my head or my hand from turning off the remote. I wish we could just get some interesting stories. After The Break Up I had some hope, but new spoilers have pretty much destroyed that hope. Glee can’t seem to follow up on their great episodes, and one or two great episodes a season interspersed among the inane filler isn’t enough to keep me watching. I miss season 1.

  39. Jenn says:

    Personally, I think the Glee writers don’t have a clue what they’re doing. Let’s hope that they keep both Finn and Rachel solo the rest of this season so they can do some ~individual growing up . That’s why they broke up right? To do some much needed self-discovery. Adding another third-party would cheapen that journey IMO.

  40. Jess says:

    If Finn OR Rachel get a new love interest, I’m completely done. Glee is selling me (especially the last episode) that they BOTH need to work on THEMSELVES ALONE and find their place and dreams in the world before they can be in a relationship with each other. That should mean ANY relationship. How is Finn finding his dream suddenly mean he wants to date someone else? How is Rachel succeeding in NYC suddenly make her want someone else? The writers how sold us on their solid MATURE relationship both in the train scene and the auditorium scene now. If they find themselves and are ready for a relationship, WHY would they choose anyone else? These writers suck. They just want third parties to stall the Finchel story and after 4 years of it, its annoying. You CAN write characters together with angst. ANNOYED

  41. H says:

    Finn and Rachel have always been shown to know each other better than anyone else. Now is the time for them to focus on themselves. They made it very clear in the last episode, to those who were willing to listen, that Finn and Rachel love each other but are on different pages in their lives right now. The Finn and Rachel storyline happens with or without “shippers.” It’s been there since the pilot, before shippers were part of the picture. They will have their time apart, but there is no doubt that their love for each other will prevail.

  42. Lorette says:

    Ill tune back in when Finn and Rachel are back together for good. Thx for the warning. I can’t handle any more boring 3rd parties.

  43. LaLa says:

    Thanks for saying whats on my mind Ellen Pompeo! I’m soooooo tired of this “My Person” crap with Mer and Cristina. Like she said its realistic if you’re like 20, but your husband should be your no. 1. I know i”m not the only fan that thinks this way, many Cristina fans like myself are tired of this thing between them.

  44. Ausiello, dude. How old were those quotes from Cory and Brad? I hate to think that there going that route with Finchel again. Brody was BO-RING. Here’s hoping that if they go this route with Finn’s love interest, the girl will have more to offer story-wise. I’m still not on board with this, tho. Why can’t they just keep Finchel single?

  45. N says:

    I love Finchel and I think it’s extremely unfair to say they have a manipulative relationship. I don’t think that’s the case at all. I think they have a real relationship. One full of support and love. Yes they fight and yes they clash and yes they’ve hurt each other before. People do that. Not everything is roses and sunshine and walks in the park.

    I think to say Rachel has never been pursued by someone who genuinely likes her is truly unfair because Finn did. He’s in love with her. So damn in love with her that he put her before his dreams or rather what he wanted. She’s done the same in this most recent ep.

    As for their current situation, I think they started to rely on each other a little too much. Rachel feeling like she couldn’t succeed without Finn being there every step of the way with her and then Finn basically dreaming to make Rachel proud or rather dreaming for everyone but himself. It’s not manipulative. It’s getting too comfortable and perhaps too dependent. It’s holding on to the good in your life. It happens. It’s not a sign of some toxic love. It actually happens to real people. You know it’s real love because of the sacrifices they’ve both made. Finn letting her go without him in the S3 finale and telling her he couldn’t have to be there with her and that she’d be a star without him because he knew she would make it and her letting him go dream big on his own and reminding him that he was all he needed to make it in ep 4 of the new season. Sacrifice is often a necessity when you love someone. It’s a necessary learning curve for the both of them.

    I’m not saying they didn’t pick dramatic ways to do it but such is the writing. I see Finn and Rachel’s flaws and their need for improvement in certain areas just like I would any other character but it’s pretty obvious how much they love each other. Sometimes people need to grow on their own before they can grow together.

    I think the new love interest storylines should just be given to other people because no matter what it’s never gonna be the same for either of them and it’s a story they’ve told before for Finchel. Give them some independence and solo time. We don’t need to see them with other people not when we know where their heart lies. It’s more interesting to see them go after their dreams and the like then perhaps later on, in terms of romance, they’ll fall in love all over again. Look, I’m not gonna say they have this flawless untouchable relationship or that they’re perfect because they’re not. They’ve hurt each other and other people, yes. It’s real. They’re “real”. They’re people who are trying to find who they are while being in love with each other and I don’t see anything horrible or toxic about that. I didn’t know having insecurities made you toxic. I’m not caught up in some high-school girl fantasy like so many other people seem to believe. I see the flaws yes but I also see the good and this whole notion that they’re some toxic unhealthy relationship just baffles me. Why? Why are they labelled as such because they have issues? Then hell yes, all of us who have ever struggled with similar things are unhealthy and toxic. Hurrah.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.

  46. Maria Fentes says:

    I’m not down with Finn getting a new love interest. Can’t the writers come up with a more creative story line than love triangles? Every season it’s the same thing and it makes for boring tv.

  47. Kem says:

    What do you mean by a Jenny Hunphrey shout-out Ausiello? Because Jenny was mentioned in the premiere and sporadically we find out where she is or what school she’s in so that’s nothing new. Do you mean more than that?

  48. Linda says:

    Looks like I might not be watching Glee come the new year. If Finn gets a new LI, I don’t see why I should invest more of my time on the show.

  49. susan says:

    I would be ok with exploring a new romantic interest for Finn. His relationship with Quinn, his one-night stand with Santana and even his relationship with Rachel have shown him to be very pliant and accomodating to the women in his life. At least with Rachel there was mutual respect and trust. Rachel sees him for who he truly is (as opposed to Santana/Quinn who saw him as a “Lima Loser” and told him as much in all their interactions). f he gets into a new romantic relationship I hope the writers make her less bossy and/or commanding. Finn deserves a sweet girl
