For Greer Grammer, Hollywood isn't just a place — it's the family business.
The 22-year-old actress stars in MTV's "Awkward" and is following in the footsteps of her father, Kelsey Grammer, and her sister, Spencer Grammer ('Greek" and "Ironside"). But don't think she's a pampered princess who gets work based on her last name. Greer , whose big dream is to appear on Broadway, is a professionally trained performer attending the University of Southern California.
Grammer chatted with Yahoo TV about the fourth season of "Awkward," which premieres tonight, as well as the career advice she's gotten from dear old dad.
It's senior year on "Awkward." What can we expect from such a big year? Everyone finds out their class rankings, which creates some drama seeing where everyone is. My favorite episode so far this season is one where the kids go and visit colleges, and having been on a college visit, it's fun to watch. We get to see how your favorite characters are dealing with going to college. Are they all going to the same college? Are they going to split up? It's very interesting.

The Red Wedding left fans shocked and in grief. The Purple Wedding? Everyone was cheering and clapping.
The second episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 4 delivered a surprise gift to viewers who haven't read the books — the long-awaited, much-wished-for death of King Joffrey.
Joffrey was the character almost everyone loved to hate. A video compilation of Joffrey getting slapped went viral. He was a jerk, a coward, a liar, and a terrible king. And for him to die in such ignoble fashion — choking during his wedding reception — was just icing on the pigeon pie.
#PurpleWedding began trending on Twitter immediately, as "Game of Thrones fans celebrated the joyous occasion:

SPOILER ALERT: This recap contains character and storyline spoilers.
The episode, "The Lion and the Rose," in a nutshell:
* Joffrey and Margaery get married * Bran has a vision of where he needs to go * Roose Bolton moves to secure the North
Body count: 1 VIP, a handful of others
Nudity count: None
Dragon sightings: None
New people: Mace Tyrell (Margaery's father)
New places (opening credits): None
Best line: "Go drink until it feels like you did the right thing." — Bronn to Tyrion
Joffrey is dead! Joffrey is dead! Joffrey is dead!
Dreams do come true!
The collective wish of "Game of Thrones" fans finally happens in "The Lion and the Rose" after Joffrey and Margaery's wedding. (Yeah, people in Westeros shouldn’t attend weddings; no good can come of it.)
And though we dearly wish Tyrion had gotten another slap in (or that Sansa had a chance), it's still incredibly rewarding to see the life disappear from Joffrey's pale face.

Here comes the beautiful bride... and her ghastly groom!
In the second episode of "Game of Thrones" Season 4, King Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell finally takes place. And, as we saw with last year's Red Wedding, anything can happen at a Westeros union. Considering how high-stakes these nuptials are, we have a feeling something big is going to go down.
So, to properly welcome the new season, you have to go big, too — with an epic wedding reception! Here are six steps to throwing a lavish party even the Lannisters would evny:
1. Spin Some Tunes
Set the mood for the party with Rdio playlists inspired by the characters. Love to hate Joffrey? Listen to his king-ly playlist:
Or try a compilation inspired by Hodor. Don't worry — it's not hours worth of him saying "Hodor."
2. Prepare a Feast
Good guys, bad guys — on "Scandal," the lines are so blurred, that it's impossible to tell the difference.
On the one hand, you've got Maya Pope, who plants a bomb to take out the President of the United States. On the other hand, you've got Rowan Pope, who kills a man in cold blood in his daughter's office. And on the other hand (yeah, in this case, we've got three hands), there's Cyrus Beene, who's as ruthless and cunning as any B-613 agent.
Well well well… Who knew Cy could stoop so low… #AskScandal
Sure, Olivia may consider herself a "white hat," but taking down B-613 actually ended up endangering the man she loves. And without that black ops apparatus, the info Jake gets about the bomb lands in the wrong hands of Cyrus. Unless the Chief of Staff has a change of heart, Sally Langston, VP Andrew, and countless other innocents are gonna go BOOM.
Maybe B-613 weren't the bad guys after all.
On "Scandal," Olivia Pope talks about white hats and black hats, but as viewers saw last week, maybe everybody's wearing grey hats.
Olivia (Kerry Washington) finally succeeded in cutting off funding to the black ops program B-613 — just when their operatives were spying on her mother's plan to launch a bomb. In this week's new episode, airing Thursday at 10 p.m. on ABC, the money is gone but Jake (Scott Foley), Quinn (Katie Lowes), and Charlie (George Newbern) still have to figure out who, what, when, and where that bomb will target.
Newbern chatted with Yahoo TV about the final two episodes of the season, Charlie's relationship with Quinn, and which cast members can't stop cracking up on set.
As "Reign" has shown over and over again, nobody at French court is to be trusted. That is, unless they need something from you.
On this week's "Reign," Mary (Adelaide Kane) is approached by an unexpected ally — one of Queen Catherine's ladies-in-waiting. The cunning French royal uses her "Flying Squad" as a sort of spy operation.
"We're trained and polished and sent to sleep with important noblemen and report back to her," the lady admits to Mary.
But Catherine's latest request is giving her pause — she wants the lady to sleep with King Henry to pry him away from Penelope, the servant who has him enraptured. But the lady has heard rumors that the king is mad and she desperately wants Mary's help to escape. But what can she offer Mary in return?
"Reign" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
They say the first year of marriage is the hardest; in a royal marriage, it must be brutal.
On "Reign," Mary (Adelaide Kane) and Francis (Toby Regbo) haven't been married long, but they already have huge obstacles in the way of their happily ever after — like the fact that they're each responsible for their own countries.
That becomes a huge issue in tonight's new episode, airing at 9 p.m. on The CW, when Mary learns of a secret clause in her marriage contract that endangers Scotland. As Kane told Yahoo TV, this causes Mary to tap into her darker, more ruthless side to find a way to save her country — even if it means taking down France.
We also asked Kane questions posed by fans on Twitter. See what she had to say!

Click, click, boom!
Wednesday night's intense episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" ended with a shocking death — William Lewis (Pablo Schreiber) killed himself after a hair-raising game of Russian Roulette with Sgt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay).
His death caps a long arc for the character, who has been Benson's toughest foe. It came after an episode in which the rapist/killer kidnapped a girl, tried to rape Olivia, got Olivia to admit to perjuring herself during his trial, and forced the detective to point a gun at her own head.
But the last bullet ended up going into Lewis's head, with Benson covered in his blood.
Watch the intense scene:
The ending left fans just as stunned as the detective:
The end of svu will forever haunt me
That was one of the best law and order svu episodes I've seen. William lewis was one of the best bad guys they've had
I had nightmares about that SVU episode last night
For fans wondering why Lewis would off himself instead of living to torture Benson some more, showrunner Warren Leight explained that the criminal knew he was at a "dead end."

Geocentrism is the new "it" science? Uh, not quite.
A new documentary called "The Principle," which argues for geocentrism (the belief that the sun revolves around Earth), is making waves. But not because the film actually has merit — rather, because it has used the words of scientists and even celebrities without their consent or knowledge.
"Orange Is the New Black" star Kate Mulgrew says she was tricked into participating in the documentary, which was produced by Robert Sungenis (who also questions the Holocaust, so there's that, too).
In the trailer for the movie, the former "Star Trek: Voyager" captain can be heard intoning, "Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong."
