Yesterday, NBC followed through with their latest tradition of an annual Red Nose Day special, a star-studded fundraiser that helps support projects in some of the neediest communities in the U.S. and some of the poorest communities in the world. All of your favorite stars turned out for this event last night including Elton John, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Jeff Goldblum, Margot Robbie and literally dozens more.
Not all of the fun from last night’s show is worth highlighting, but there were two segments that we just couldn’t pass up. One features the return of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to TV sketch comedy while the other has Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead imagining their own Red Nose Day special akin to the Star Wars Holiday Special.

This fall marks the return of The Walking Dead, and that means AMC returned to Hall H to tease the forthcoming sixth season of the comic book adaptation.
After the jump, we share what we learned about the forthcoming season, including tidbits about the dynamic between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Morgan (Lenny James); a couple new cast members; who wants Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Rick to get together; and just how many walkers we’ll see in the season premiere.
First of all, if for some reason you happen to be behind on The Walking Dead, you’ll be able to catch up on five seasons on five Sundays starting on July 26th at 2:30pm Eastern and continuing for five consecutive Sundays after that. Otherwise, if you’re not caught up, you might not want to keep reading The Walking Dead Comic Con 2015 panel recap after the jump. Read More »
The fourth season of AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead, just ended a few weeks ago but the first look at the next season is already here. (PS – That’s not it above.) The first season 5 photo is not particularly revealing, especially if you’ve seen the finale of season four. But it’s pretty representative of the story we can expect when the show returns this October. Check out the first Walking Dead season 5 photo below. Read More »
One of fundamental rules of The Walking Dead universe is that everyone alive is infected with the zombie virus. The only way it takes hold is if you die.
With that in mind, a deleted scene from the third season of The Walking Dead has come online. Taken from the episode “Home” where Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is losing his mind and seeing visions of his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), the scene flips what we thought happened on its head in an extremely visceral way. Check it out below. Read More »

As we get closer and closer to the Season 2 premiere date, the promos for AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead get more and more revealing. With about two and a half weeks to go, a new 90-second trailer has been unveiled which offers the best look yet at the upcoming season.
The zombies are still after Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company, obviously, but just as worrisome is what the survivors are up to when they’re not busy fighting zombies — they’re picking fights with each other and threatening to split off from the group. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Who’s ready for the fall television season? I, for one, am not — I’ve still got a ton of catching up to do, for one thing, and it means the end of summer, for another — but I suspect I may be alone in this. At any rate, the networks would like to remind you to start preparing yourselves for the upcoming season. We’ve got great new teasers for the sixth season of Dexter and the fourth season of Fringe, plus a clip and a poster from Season 2 of The Walking Dead, all after the jump.

The new television season isn’t quite upon us yet, but the networks have definitely started gearing up. HBO’s just released an extended trailer for the eighth (and last) season of its escapist Hollywood fantasy Entourage, set to premiere in two weeks.
[UPDATE: Sadly, it turns out that the Walking Dead video posted below is fan-made and not an official teaser. Original story follows.] Over at AMC, the producers behind The Walking Dead have only recently begun casting for its new characters, but a recently released photo and now a brand-new teaser promise that the next season will be just as zombie-tastic as the last. Watch both trailers after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
AMC has released a five minute sneak peak at the first episode of the upcoming small screen adaptation of The Walking Dead, which premieres Halloween night, October 31 at 10pm. The sequence takes place very early on in the episode, and basically involves the main character waking up to the zombie outbreak (something we’ve seen before in movies like 28 Days Later). I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the first two episodes of this series and I can’t recommend it more highly.
Also, a couple weeks back we posted a fan created fan opening title sequence created by Daniel Kanemoto using artwork “ripped from the pages of the comic, originally illustrated by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore.” AMC has finally released the real opening title sequence online and guess what — the fan created titles is much better on almost every level.
Hit the jump to watch the five minute sequence and the real opening title sequence.
