Here we have an early look at MTV’s “Teen Wolf” series, and it looks pretty good. By that, I mean it doesn’t look too much like Twilight. And there are crossbows.
Welcome to the mobile edition of the weekly “Walking Dead” post. Why mobile? Because I’m sitting in an airport writing on my phone, watching on my iPad. Hence, no pics and probably plenty of typos (which my editor had better had fixed).
If you follow the weekly procedural escapades of Fox’s “Bones” you know Michaela Conlin best as Angela Montenegro, a forensics-minded sometimes-bohemian party child and the titular character’s closest confidant.
Fox is developing a sitcom based off Weekly World News. No word yet when they plan to abruptly cancel it.
In the latest Muppet movie, one name stands out like a brown stain on an otherwise clean pair of tighty whities: Lady Gaga.
Until she scored a leading role on Fox’s lady-centric detective series “Bones,” Tamara Taylor’s acting career was, for the most part, a collection of guest shots and short appearances dating back to her television debut in 1991.
Breaking News: Kanye West has beef. The other day on the “Today Show,” the outspoken rapper taped an interview with Matt Lauer which, if you’re a reader of Kanye’s Twitter you’d know, didn’t go smoothly.You’d know this because he wrote, “Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!! I don’t trust anyone!”
Someone DOES listen to my prayers at night. In this Page 3 Old Spice commercial parody, model Rosie Jones struts around half-naked as the woman you’d like your woman to be like.
Rap’s most prolific shouter, Lil Jon, remixed the “Sesame Street” theme because why not? The lyrics always needed more “MOTHERF*CKERS!” in them.
Spike TV got Gary Busey together with some hottish chicks to drop some science on the mic appliance in order to promote their syndication of “Entourage.” The concept behind the music video promo is creative. Actresses and porn stars who have appeared naked on the show complain about stripping off and having to put their mouths on the cast.
Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial.
An Emmy Award winner and a native of London, England, Archie Panjabi has been onscreen for over fifteen years, with the majority of her career spent in television.
Conan O’Brien returned to the airwaves last night to prove that you can banish him to basic cable, but you can’t take away what makes him great. And it looks like with ‘Conan,’ he helped TBS finally earn their “Very Funny” slogan.
Get ready for some stereotypical alpha male behavior because Tim Allen might return to the boob tube.
I got to see the next two episodes of “House” with guest star Amber Tamblyn as new hire Martha M. Masters. She’s a foil to House’s (Hugh Laurie) abrasive antics because she believes in pure honesty and ethics. Tamblyn revealed in a conference call the other day that there really is a Martha M. Masters.
Thanks to a buttload (Nielson terminology) of people supporting zombie drama by tuning into “The Walking Dead,” AMC has picked up the show for a second season of 13 episodes. Yay, good television and the living dead can survive!
Episode 2, in which Rick Grimes makes some new friends, dismembers a corpse, and gets the F out of Dodge.
She’s intimately familiar with the persistent uncertainty that is big-screen stardom.
Gun changed for awesomticity's sake.
A real honest to goodness can kill a brotha hand gun was found on the set of "Law & Order: Los Angeles." Hit Fix reports the NBC show was filming in Culver City on Wednesday when a cameraman spotted it on a rock. Los Angeles police spokeswoman Karen Rayner says "the semiautomatic handgun was in working order. It will be test-fired, with the results logged for possible crime matches."
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I live right around the Culver City area in Los Angeles. That's where I lay my head at night. How am I supposed to feel safe now knowing that thing was found there? Skeet Ulrich has no right traipsing around my town. The gun on the rock, yeah whatever, but Skeet?! Now I have to start the moving process. I don't have time for this right now. The new Screen Junkies site launches next week! You like how I worked that in there?
You would guess by this montage that Don Draper is a bit of a dumbass on "Mad Men." For such a creative genius, he doesn't seem to grasp much that's told to him. Or maybe he's going deaf and no one has diagnosed it properly. Quick, someone clap in front of his face and see if he reacts. If he asks "what?" again we should immediately book an appointment with someone who looks into brains. A doctor perhaps!
See Don Draper perplexed after the jump…
Of all the Disney kids, Hilary Duff has the sweetest good girl image even by Disney standards. No scandals, no feuds, just wholesome music and family friendly movies (except for a few questionable paparazzi pics). So what did "Community" do to make her so nasty? She plays Meghan on this Thursday’s episode, leader of a Greendale clique who terrorize Britta, Shirley and Annie.

In an effort to avoid penning a 700-page dissertation on the specific facets of Cobie Smulders’ infinite hotness, we’ll sum it up like this: Oh my god. Best known as that dorky Canadian newscaster chick from the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” Smulders is set to grace the cover of the December issue of Maxim. And based on a set of prints leaked from the shoot, it looks like that particular issue is going to fly off the racks faster than most. If you want a copy, they’ll all be here at the Screenjunkies office. But you’ll have to fight us with katana swords to get one. We’ve been practicing.
A word from Cobie: “I had no idea what I wanted to do after college, but acting seemed like a good start.”

Conan O'Brien put on a five-minute trial run of his upcoming TBS show in a conference room. Here's hoping the production value of the actual show exceeds this one. I know it's not NBC, but paint is so affordable these days. I don't want to ruin the guest since he only stays for 30 seconds, so I'll only say that it causes a BIG BANG THEORY. Diet Coke probably gets more air time than anything else. Hey, someone's gotta pay for those spotlight gels.

Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)
Some people weren't meant to be parents.
Fox has unleashed the teaser trailer for their upcoming Chicago cop drama, "The Chicago Code." The series is created by Shawn Ryan, the man behind one of my favorite shows of all time, "The Shield." Don't let the cliché line shouting in the trailer deter you from watching the show when it premieres in February. I've seen the pilot and it is an exciting, well-written piece of television. Ryan knows his cops and his hometown well. He won't get away with the same explicit content that "The Shield" did, but there will be plenty of police brutality. Hey, it's Chicago, fugetaboutit! Ah crap, wrong town.

I don't watch "Saturday Night Live" anymore, but I do watch the popular videos that make their way to the web the following Monday. This week, Jon Hamm hosted with musical guest Rihanna. Of course Andy Samberg and Rihanna did a digital short sequel to "Shy Ronnie" entitled "Ronnie and Clyde." It's not as funny as the first, but Rihanna is hot and I like that she returns to the bank to snag hostage Jon Hamm so she can bang him.
Jon Hamm also appeared in a sketch in which he parodies Best Cry Ever Guy. If you don't know who that is, shame on you for not being more addicted to the Internet. You can check out the original video here and then the 'SNL'-ized, Hamm-ized version after the jump.
"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

Last night, Zach Galifiankis appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and made a very strong point about the legalization of marjiuana by sparking a doobie on live TV. None of the other guests would indulge, nor would Maher, which must have taken a huge amount of retraint for the weed-loving host. All of you prudes out there, if you take nothing else away from this video, remember this: smoking grass does not make you see dragons.
