Alex Høgh Andersen on what’s coming up for Ivar on VIKINGS

Following a season that found the Ragnar’s sons coming together with a common goal that ended with Sigurd’s brutal murder at the hands of his own brother, VIKINGS has started S5 with the pedal to the metal with no indication of letting up.  The show feels fresh and exciting, and it sounds like the best may be yet to come! Ahead of tonight’s all new episode, called “The Plan,” I spent some time catching up with Ivar the Boneless himself,

From the Set: THE MIDDLE hits 200!

THE MIDDLE has quietly had one of the best runs of any comedy series of the modern era: always funny, always relatable, and one of my favorite shows on TV.  Now in their 9th and final season (Eden Sher promises “we decided it!”), the series has hit another milestone – 200(+) episodes. Episode 200, aptly named “The 200th,” celebrates Orson’s late achievement: they were selected as one of the top 200 cities in Indiana – number 200, to be exact!

My Take On…THE MARVELOUS MRS MAISEL

Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), the titular Mrs from Amazon’s new series THE MARVELOUS MRS MAISEL, is a woman scorned. Left by her joke-stealing husband Joel for the dim-witted secretary at his big-city office, she stumbles into a burgeoning career as a stand up comedian at the start of the 1960s, under the guidance of a woman named Susie (the jokes about whom all come down to “what’s with that dude? Oh she’s a lady”).  As the 8 episode first

Which athletes will we see on DANCING WITH THE STARS s26?

DANCING WITH THE STARS just celebrated their 25th Anniversary season with Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold taking home the mirror ball. Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced during the finale that the show would be adding a twist to season 26 – every competitor would be from the sports world.  Since they’ve had a great showing over the years from Kristi Yamaguchi, Helio Castroneves, and Rashad Jennings, just to name a few, it stands to reason that Season 26 could be the

Re-Take: What happened on CHICAGO MED last season?

CHICAGO MED premieres tonight at 10/9c with a gripping new episode – you can find the videos from our interviews with cast on YouTube (Drs. Halstead & Manning, Drs. Rhodes & Bekker, Drs. Charles & Reese, Mrs Goodwin & Maggie).  Let’s look back, though, at what you may have missed last season! When we last saw the CHICAGO MED team, everyone was in a transition. Robin was correctly diagnosed and cured from her neurological nightmare. She and Connor can move

ONCE UPON A TIME’s Mekia Cox on Tiana, Sabine, and playing CHICAGO MED’s Robin

Mekia Cox has been busy this year – joining ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME as iconic Disney Princess Tiana (and her Hyperion Heights counterpart, Sabine) and gearing up for a rough go of it as CHICAGO MED’s Robin (Season 3 premieres 11/21). Adding to her busy Chicago to Vancouver schedule, not one but two production companies that produce musical performances on multiple nights in multiple cities, and Mekia is living a “when it rains, it pours” kind of life! I

Brandon Spink talks BERLIN STATION S2

BERLIN STATION has been airing a fantastic second season Sunday nights on Epix. We had the chance to catch up with Brandon Spink, who portrays Robert’s son Noah, about season 2, working with his incredible TV fathers, why you should be watching BERLIN STATION, and what’s coming next! What was it as a child that made you say “I want to be an actor?” When I was 7, I would always do these little school plays so I would do
