picked up for a third season, the cast can afford to sit back and laugh a little – which they did plenty of last night at a screening and panel discussion for Emmy voters.
Five of the six main cast members were in attendance (minus Elisha Cuthbert), along with creator David Caspe and executive producer Jonathan Groff. And if any show could use a little Emmys love to boost its profile, it’s this one. In fact, we’ll make it easy for all you Emmy voters out there: Write Adam Pally (Max) and Casey Wilson (Penny) on your ballot in pen for as long as the show is on the air; pencil in TV’s best married couple, Eliza Coupe (Jane) and Damon Wayans Jr. (Brad), when you can; and heck, if you have room, throw in

Well, here we are, "Revenge" fans: After months of twists and turns, our new favorite primetime soap wraps up a very entertaining freshman season this week. And if our exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday's grand finale is any indication, Season 1 is definitely going out with a bang.
We've got a first look at an angry Daniel surprising Emily in her home (doesn't she ever lock the door?) and confronting her with the knowledge that she hasn't exactly been faithful to their engagement. Check it out right here:
Well, to be fair, Emily did kiss Jack, so Daniel has a right to be a little upset. (And for the record, the death of a beloved pooch is not an excuse for cheating.) But is TV's best love triangle really finished? And is Emily actually preparing to tell Daniel the truth about who she is? We know one thing: Wednesday night can't come soon enough.

Reality TV's fiercest family feud may finally be coming to an end: Bickering father-and-son motorcycle builders Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. (aka Senior and Junior) will meet face-to-face on tonight's season finale of Discovery's "American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior." And we've got an exclusive first look at the reunion right here. Check it out:
In the clip, Paul Junior drives over to his old stomping grounds, Orange County Choppers, to sit down with his dad for a long-overdue talk. And Junior has mixed feelings about it, admitting to "a little anxiety" and a feeling that he's "walking into the lions' den," but concluding that "as a man, this is what you do -- the hard stuff." And Senior seems open to a reconciliation as well, saying that the meeting "can't go [any] worse than the last time" (referring to an off-camera meeting that went sour) and giving Junior credit for being the first to reach out.

That handsome guy in the photo is young New Zealand actor Jay Ryan (“Terra Nova”), who stars opposite Kreuk as Vincent Keller, aka the Beast. And we’re guessing he’s supposed to know he’s the Beast because of that one tiny scar on his otherwise perfectly airbrushed face. Granted, we’re not exactly fairy-tale scholars, and it’s been a long time since we’ve seen the Disney cartoon -- but isn’t the Beast supposed to be, you know… ugly?
We shouldn’t be surprised; after all, The CW might as well change their name to the Hot Young Hotties network, since almost every show they have features a bevy of beautiful young people for their teen viewershipRead More »from The CW's Epic 'Beauty and the Beast' Fail: Where's the Beast?

This week, the major TV networks rolled out all their new shows for next season – and as usual, there are a lot of duds coming our way. (Did CBS not know there’s already an awesome “Sherlock” reboot on PBS before greenlighting “Elementary”?) But we still managed to find a few shows that look to be worth at least a one-episode tryout. Here are the nine new shows we’re making room for in our busy viewing schedules.Read More »from The Nine New TV Shows We’ll Be Watching Next Season
"The Mindy Project" (Fox, Tuesdays at 9:30 PM)
Mindy Kaling, always one of our favorite Dunder Mifflin worker bees, gets her own Fox comedy this fall – and Fox must like it, too, because they’re putting it in the coveted post-“New Girl” timeslot. Kaling plays a hopelessly romantic OB/GYN who dreams of being swept off her feet in classic rom-com fashion; Chris Messina (“Damages”) plays the doctor she’ll fight being attracted to for a few seasons before inevitably giving in. We’re happy to see Kaling get a much-deserved shot at stardom, and she even got a few big names to make

Two and a Half Men" wrapped up its first post-Charlie Sheen season last night, and the network has already renewed it for a tenth season, bringing this season's main cast -- Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer, and Angus T. Jones -- back intact. But behind all the good press, a dirty secret is lurking: Viewers seem to be abandoning "Men" in droves.CBS's long-running sitcom "
The initial numbers paint a rosy picture: When they renewed the show, CBS crowed that "Men" is up 13 percent in total viewers (15 million) and up 27 percent in the all-important 18-to-49 demographic (5.2) this season. But a lot of that bump comes from the huge numbers "Men" pulled for Kutcher's debut back in September, when a whopping 28 million viewers tuned in to see how "Men" would move into the post-Sheen era.
Viewership has eroded slowly but steadily ever since, to the point where an original "Men" episode hasn't topped the 12-million-viewer mark since February. By comparison, that's below what last season (the finalRead More »from 'Two and a Half Men' Ratings Slide: Are Viewers Jumping Ship?
- Dave Nemetz | Yahoo! TV – Mon, May 14, 2012 2:40 PM PDTThe worst-kept secret in showbiz got confirmed today, as “The X Factor” guru Simon Cowell introduced the show’s new judges – pop stars Britney Spears and Demi Lovato – at Fox’s upfront presentation. And though Britney looked fantastic, rocking a tight white minidress, she looked absolutely petrified as well. Which leads us to ask: Is she really up for this gig?
Along with Simon, Demi, and fellow judge L.A. Reid, Britney walked out on stage to greet hundreds of potential advertisers. (These upfronts are closed to the public, so no video or photos from the presentation have emerged.) And while Simon couldn’t have been prouder of his new lineup, crowing, “Well, we delivered,” Britney stood frozen with an awkward smile plastered on her face. Britney did speak briefly to the crowd, throwing out some generic statements about how she’s “so excited about this whole experience” and how “it’s gonna be so much fun.” But once she was finished, she looked like she couldn’t wait to hand theRead More »from Can New 'X Factor' Judge Britney Spears Handle the Pressure?

Why is that?This fall, an old “Friend” is heading back to TV: Matthew Perry returns to NBC to star in the new sitcom, “
Here, we look back at why Perry’s post-“Friends” shows haven’t worked -- and try to predict if “Go On” can break that streak.
“Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” (NBC, 2006-07)
Perry Played: Matt Albie, the pill-popping head writer of a fictional sketch-comedy TV show on Aaron Sorkin’s behind-the-scenes drama.
Why Didn’t It Work? We’re still trying to figure that out. Sorkin’s writing was typically impeccable (this came between “The West Wing” and “The Social Network” for him), and Perry proved he had dramatic acting chops to spare. But maybe Sorkin’s heady intellectualismRead More »from Will Matthew Perry’s Third Post-'Friends' Series Be the Charm?

FX's twisted comedy "Wilfred" -- starring Elijah Wood as an aimless stoner who sees his neighbor's dog (Jason Gann) as human -- had us laughing all last summer. And we're happy to report that this shaggy dog has fetched itself a second season, which kicks off June 28. To get you ready, we've got an exclusive look at the show's Season 2 poster right here. Check it out:
Well, Wilfred pushed poor Elijah around all last season, so it's no surprise to see him leading the way here. (And is that some sort of faux-diorama museum exhibit they're standing in?) In any case, we can't wait to see what new tricks this old dog has up his sleeve this season.Read More »from Exclusive: Check Out the Season 2 Poster for FX's 'Wilfred'

We're T-minus seven weeks away from Charlie Sheen's triumphant return to TV as an anger-management therapist with plenty of issues of his own on FX's new comedy, "Anger Management." And since we can't wait that long to start "winning!" again, we managed to get you an exclusive sneak peek at the show's official poster right here. Check it out:
It's a stark black-and-white shot of Sheen walking across a barren landscape away from a literal trainwreck. (Hey. the man is nothing if not self-aware.) But the wry smile on his face and the "hostile makeover" tagline are telling us Sheen is ready to turn the page and start making us laugh (intentionally) again.
What do you think of the poster? Will you be watching "Anger Management" when it debuts next month? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to Yahoo! TV for more exclusive "Anger Management" content.
"Anger Management" premieres Thursday, 6/28 at 9 PM on FX.
