SPOILER ALERT: This recap contains storyline and character spoilers.
When Clay Morrow was killed with two episodes still left to air in Season 6, it was a pretty safe bet that something even more shocking, and more heartbreaking, was going to happen in the “Sons of Anarchy” season finale. Still, could anyone have predicted this: motorcycle mama Gemma — high, drunk, and working off a big dose of misinformation — stabbing her daughter-in-law Tara to death in the head, using a carving fork, while also pushing Tara’s head into a sinkful of dishwater in her kitchen?
Good-guy Charming cop Eli became another victim when Juice burst into the kitchen and shot the sheriff so he could clean up the scene and get Gemma out of the house. That left Jax, who’d agreed to turn himself into district attorney Patterson as the source of the gun from the season premiere school shooting, to walk into the Teller home and find his dead wife.
Patterson, who arrived at the house to pick up Jax in the deal that would clear the club and Tara (and leave Tara free to raise Abel and Thomas while Jax served time), walked in as Jax sat on the floor, sobbing while he cradled Tara’s body in his arms.

Looks like Blake Shelton's winning streak is finally over. For the first time in "Voice" history, he has no chance of triumphing on the show. After leading Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, and Danielle Bradbery to victory over the past three "Voice" seasons, Blake is officially out of the running, having lost his one remaining team member, Cole Vosbury, on Tuesday's semifinals results episode.
Meanwhile, Blake's archrival, Adam Levine, has a great chance of scoring his first "Voice" victory since Team Adam's Javier Colon took the title way back in Season 1. While Adam did suffer his first loss of the entire season (incredibly) this Tuesday, when James Wolpert was sent home in fifth place, his contestants Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin did make it through, and either has a very good shot of coming out on top. And Christina Aguilera, who's never won "The Voice," finally may taste sweet victory if her last girl standing, teen prodigy Jacquie Lee, prevails.

Last night, the "Voice" top five performed on the most important episode of Season 5 yet: the semifinals, which determine the three contestants that'll be in next week's big finale. All five contestants were very strong, but judging from today's iTunes numbers, it looks like Tessanne Chin is already the winner this season, as her "Bridge Over Troubled Water" went all the way to number one.
But who will join Tessanne in next week's finale? Will the other two finalists be Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin, who also made the iTunes top 10 and therefore received that all-important "iTunes Bonus"? Or will season-long fan favorite Cole Vosbury make the cut? And does James Wolpert, who almost went home last week (and won't have an Instant Save to depend on this week), still have a shot?
Today, my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield discuss all this and more. Check out our latest dish below, and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section as well!

Ian Ziering did the so-bad-it's-good Syfy movie "Sharknado" for the money — but not to support a flashy celebrity lifestyle. Rather, he did it to give his kids health insurance!
When the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star first read the script, he was "apprehensive," as he told ABC News. But then his wife reminded him, "Look, you're going to have two babies [by] this spring, you need to go to work."

"As an actor I get my insurance from the Screen Actor's Guild by union, and you have to make so much every year to get that type 1 insurance," he explained.
He realized he had to "take one for the team" and take on "Sharknado."
"I probably would have passed on it," the 49-year-old star admitted. "But now it's not just me, I'm providing for a wife and two kids."

Two years ago, NBC's little show that could, "The Sing-Off," almost didn't. After its third season tanked in the ratings, the a cappella talent competition was canceled, robbing viewers of some truly fantastic singing — and, more tragically, of the wit and wisdom of Ben Folds, the greatest reality TV judge of all time .
But a lot can happen in two years. Ironically, Season 3's winner, Pentatonix, went on to huge success, with their two albums respectively debuting at number 14 and number 10 on the Billboard chart. The sleeper-hit comedy flick Pitch Perfect put a cappella on the pop-culture map. "Sing-Off" fanatics started a grass-roots "Save the 'Sing-Off'" campaign to revive the show. And now, "The Sing-Off" is finally back.
And you know, it's even better than I remember.

The most important episode of "The Voice" Season 5 so far — the top five semifinals, the show that'll determine which three contestants (with no help of an Instant Save) advance to next week's finale — took place Monday night. Hypothetically, it could be an all-Team Adam finale next week, if all of Adam Levine's contestants make it through. There's also a chance that one of the other coaches still represented in the mix, Christina Aguilera or three-time champ Blake Shelton, could be out of the running after the votes are tallied, leaving them sitting on the sidelines alongside poor, jilted CeeLo Green.
But enough talk about whether Adam will win, or Christina will win, or Blake will win. The stakes are obviously much higher for the actual contestants , the ones who are trying to win an actual record contract , not just bragging rights. So let's recap how they all did…and then predict which three will make the cut.

Boston strong couple Jason Case, 34, and Amy Diaz, 29, met in a Rhode Island hookah bar, dated for 18 months, and then decided to test their skills and their relationship by applying for "The Amazing Race 23." Six months later, their love affair is still going strong, an engagement is imminent, and their bank accounts are healthier, thanks to avoiding Philimination. Yahoo TV spoke exclusively with this season's winners Monday while they were on a train to New York about the highs and lows of the competition, their controversial alliance, and how the race affected their bond.
How does it feel to finally be able to tell people you won?
Amy: We are so relieved. Our moms needed tranquilizers throughout the entire season and definitely last night.
Jason: It was really tough not to tell anyone, but it was harder not to mess up and give anything away. People would try to trick us and ask questions to try to figure out if we'd won or lost. Amy and I were very prepared for that. We had a great poker face for the last few months, so we completely blew people's minds when we won. They had no idea.

It’s official: The Cumberbatch, er, the presumed-dead Sherlock Holmes, springs back to life in the upcoming third season of “Sherlock.” And as the just-released trailer for the new season shows, Sherlock is incredulous that life has gone on without him during his absence.
“I think I’ll surprise John,” Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) tells his bro, Mycroft (Mark Gatiss), in the trailer. “Pop over to Baker Street. Who knows? Jump out of a cake.”
“Baker Street? He isn’t there anymore,” Mycroft says. “It’s been two years. He’s got on with his life.”
“What life?” Sherlock asks. “I’ve been away.”

"NCIS" is the gift that keeps on giving for CBS.
The mega-hit drama has already spawned one successful spinoff, "NCIS: Los Angeles." And now executive producer Gary Glasberg and star Mark Harmon are hoping the crime procedural's magic will extend to a third series set in New Orleans.
The "NCIS" team is planning a backdoor pilot — an episode of the original series that introduces the new characters for the potential spinoff — to air in spring 2014.
According to Showbiz 411, there are four main characters and the roles are open to any ethnicity. Here's a rundown of each, with our casting suggestions. Plus, check out who our followers on Twitter want to see on the spinoff!

As "American Idol's" Danny Noriega might say, this is almost TMTH (too much to handle). Yahoo's Reality Rocks can exclusively confirm rumors that the wild Season 7 Idol, famous for his perfectly purple-streaked emo hair, skinny ties, and sassing back to Simon Cowell, has just signed up for another, very different reality competition: "RuPaul's Drag Race"! And Danny is looking very different these days, too.
Since leaving "Idol's" top 16 in 2008, Danny, now age 24, has reinvented himself as the fabulous drag queen Adore Delano, performing in drag shows across Southern California and rubbing glittery shoulders with "Drag Race" alums like Morgan McMichaels. Danny/Adore even auditioned for "Drag Race" last season, narrowly missing the cut. But when Season 6 premieres in February 2014 on the Logo network, Adore Delano will finally get her closeup. (Interestingly, she will be competing against Courtney Act, a veteran of "Australian Idol," so this will be a very Idolicious season.)
