"Fargo" pulled off two of the coolest character introductions ever tonight. We don't even know their names – and never will – but we know their dynamic. And we like it a lot.
In the opening scene of "Fargo" Episode 2 (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX), titled "The Rooster Prince," we met two heavies – "We're from Fargo" – played by Adam Goldberg and Russell Harvard, and they seemed like your typical thuggish henchmen (albeit in some very interesting outfits)… until they started signing to each other. Watch their introduction here:
This isn't the first time American Sign Language (ASL) has been seen on the small screen recently, but it is the first time it's been shown totally out of context. No subtitles and a very obvious discrepancy between what was being signed and what was being said meant that the "Fargo" audience was just as out of the loop as the other characters on the show.
'Grimm' First Look: College Student Turned Cast Member Revealed as Leather-Loving, Machete-Wielding Wesen FoeCarrie Bell at Yahoo TV6 hrs ago
Nick (David Giuntoli) and friends have been up to their eyeballs in royals, Resistance fighters, and an enchanted rugrat for the past few months on "Grimm." And that's on top of their standard Wesen-of-the-week encounters, wedding planning, and an unscheduled visit from the very intense Mommie Grimmest (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). Portland's supernatural squad sure could use a break, but they aren't going to get it when the arrival of a mysterious drifter in the Rose City spells trouble (phonetically at least) as the cops-n-creatures series returns on Friday, April 25.

Aaron Sorkin was wrong, and he can admit it. He just apologized to "everyone in the world" for his critically savaged HBO drama "The Newsroom," specifically the way it depicts recent news events with perfect hindsight. He also said of the series (entering its third and final season this fall), "I feel like I'm just now starting to learn how to write it." Hey, better late than never, huh?
But he shouldn't have stopped there; there are plenty of irritating things about "The Newsroom" that call for a mea culpa. In fact, here are eight "Newsroom" scenes that we'd appreciate an apology for. Mr. Sorkin, we're waiting.
1. MacKenzie sends a sensitive email — to everyone. (Season 1, Episode 2)

It's a "Late Show" lovefest tonight as outgoing host David Letterman welcomes his replacement, Stephen Colbert, as a guest for the first time since Colbert signed on to take the reins of CBS's late-night talk show next year.
And this is no Leno-Conan situation; these two are obviously on great terms. Colbert has been a "Late Show" guest a dozen times already, and in the preview clip above, Letterman warmly introduces the man who'll take his seat as "the very talented and always entertaining Stephen Colbert."
Following 'The Following': Valorie Curry Explains Emma's Death and the Show's Harry Potter ConnectionBreanne L. Heldman at Yahoo TV9 hrs ago
Be warned! Spoilers from this week's episode of "The Following" abound.
When a show is about a serial killer and the people who love him, we suppose no death should be shocking. Still, some fans of "The Following" didn't see this week's farewell coming.
After two straight weeks of brutal deaths — Lily Gray (Connie Nielsen) and Mandy Lang (Tiffany Boone) — apparently the body count for the hit Fox show wasn't over, and original character Emma Hill (Valorie Curry) met her demise at the hands of madman Joe Carroll's ex-wife, Claire Matthews (Natalie Zea).
While actress Curry may have her murderous on-screen counterpart in her rear view mirror, we managed to squeeze seven still-simmering questions out of her.

In this week's episode, airing at 8 p.m. on The CW, she's racing to find a way to save her hexed Uncle Kieran. Meanwhile, Klaus, who failed to help her, is trying to get his hands on his mother's spellbook — which has gone mysteriously missing.
Watch a sneak peek:
Read on to see what Pipes reveals about Cami's relationship with Klaus, what it's like kissing Marcel, and why she feels sorry for fans who watch the big season finale.

Brian Williams has his mind on his money and his money on his mind.
On Monday's "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Fallon once again gave his old pal the lip dub treatment, splicing together footage of the veteran newsman in his "NBC Nightly News" anchor seat set to… Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice."
As you'll see in the clip, Williams, 54, "says" things like, "But I, somehow, some way, keep comin' up with funkya-- sh-- every single day."
Needless to say, it's not your typical Brian Williams newscast, though it certainly looks like it with cameos from "Nightly News" correspondents Natalie Morales and Lester Holt. However, it's not new terrain either. For several years, Fallon has been running these "Brian Williams: Gangsta Rapper" segments — seven in total. Previous rap mashups include Snoop Dogg's part from "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang," Ice Cube's bit in "Straight Outta Compton," and, in February, The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight."
The news anchor has also been game for Fallon's "Slow Jam the News" sketches.

Party rock was in the house Monday night! On Monday's "Dancing With the Stars," it was time to get the party started with the show's first-ever Party Anthem theme night. That meant plenty of party music, a plethora of cha-chas, and the perfect guest judge: LMFAO's Redfoo, one of the masterminds behind the ultimate party song "Party Rock Anthem." And the rapper made it clear he was there to judge the dancers' fun factor and not the technical aspects of the dances: "I'm not here for technical," he proclaimed. "I say 'technical schmesticle."

'Scandal' Deep Thoughts: Bellamy Young on Mellie's Crazy Year and Whether or Not Little Jerry's Big Sneeze Was ContagiousMaggie Furlong at Yahoo TV1 day ago
We still have a bit of a "Scandal" hangover, and we're not alone. "I'm in withdrawal," Bellamy Young told Yahoo TV, which makes sense considering Mellie's season of insanity. "It's been a crazy year. And she's been through so much this season — last year was the pregnancy and the birth and everything, but this year was the rape and the affair and my son dying, and oh! It's been a lot."

The cast of FX's "Fargo" is filled with recognizable faces: Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk. But hold on a second: Who's that playing the lead detective?
You shouldn't feel bad if you don't recognize Allison Tolman, a newcomer with a sparse résumé who managed to land a plum role alongside an all-star cast. She played a nurse in a 2006 episode of "Prison Break," and… yep, that's about all you might have seen her in. (By comparison, her co-star Joey King has 35 acting credits to her name — and she's 14 years old.)
