FX
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ has proven just a bit more cogent than last season’s ‘Coven’ (while simultaneously connecting itself to the ‘Asylum’), but the FX horror drama’s January return will accomplish something no other ‘Horror Story’ has dared. Check out Neil Patrick Harris’ magical guest appearance in our first preview for the ‘Freak Show’'s antepenultimate hour, “Magical Thinking”!

Amy Adams is adorably bad at flip cup. The ‘Big Eyes’ star—and hey, this week's ‘Saturday Night Live’ host!—hit up ‘The Tonight Show’ last night to play an extremely festive round of flip cup with host Jimmy Fallon. Although the cheery spirit was strong in this particular round of holiday-decked flip cup, that didn’t do much to help Adams’ overall performance.

‘The Legend of Korra’ Finale Review: “Day of the Colossus / The Last Stand”

EDIT

‘The Legend of Korra’ began as a “What if?”: What would the ancient-skewing world previously depicted in ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ look like 70 years in the future, with a female protagonist, with the traditional Hero’s Journey thrown out the window? The original plan was for a mini-series — a graphic noir tale that dipped its toe into recognizable class wars. But what Korra could do, become, say, wound up overflowing into three more seasons. The potential creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko saw in their new incarnation crescendos into the show’s very last beats.

Comedy Central
Even though "Stephen Colbert" the host, actor, and comedian is only leaving us for a brief bit of time -- he'll take over hosting 'The Late Show' late next year -- "Stephen Colbert" the 'Colbert Report'-created character left us last night, when the Comedy Central talk show ended its nine-year run. Colbert's final episode was weird, marvelous, and marvelously weird, ending with a massive, star-studded sing-a-long that included crooners like Big Bird, Jeff Daniels, Cyndi Lauper, James Franco, and more more more.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Review: “Orphans”

EDIT
by Britt Hayes 4 days ago
For the second week in a row, ‘American Horror Story’ has delivered a pretty solid episode—it could be due in part to the increasingly smaller number of carnival performers combined with the show’s rotating system, which makes at least one cast member (or attraction, in the parlance of a sideshow) sit out each week in order to focus its narrative efforts elsewhere. And maybe “Orphans” works because it tells a story that’s genuinely sad, which accentuates the horror of the hour. And maybe I also think this episode is great because Lily Rabe reprises her role as Sister Mary Eunice, and she is a total queen.

Anyone keeping up with HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ well knows that season 5 will be one of transition for many characters, in particular Arya, who was last seen boarding a ship toward a brand-new life in a foreign country. And while it’s hard to say exactly who Arya Stark will become when ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 picks up in 2015, we at least know what she’ll look like, based on new concept art.
