The Price Is Right Hands Out a Record-Setting $80K (!) on the Wheel — Watch
Get ready to witness a Price Is Right jackpot of epic (and expensive!) proportions.
In the clip above from Friday’s episode, three contestants line up to spin the wheel, and since Tpir is celebrating Drew Carey’s tenth anniversary as host this week, if they spin a dollar, they win $10,000 instead of the usual $1,000. What’s more: Their second spin could win them $25,000 if they spin a dollar again. Got it? Good… because this is what we in the TV biz call foreshadowing.
‘Scandal’ Season 7: Olivia Has Absolute Power, but Will it Corrupt Her Absolutely?
At the end of the sixth season of “Scandal,” Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) was in the power seat as the chief of staff to the first female president (Bellamy Young’s Mellie) and the new head of B613. And when the seventh and final season starts, Olivia is enjoying wielding her power, even though it may mean pushing aside those who have been closest to her.
“Olivia’s sitting in the highest seat,” said Washington during a set visit of which Variety was a part. “Anything that jeopardizes her ability to show up for the republic is potentially a problem. Relationships are not the most important thing right now, unless that relationship serves and enhances her ability to wield her power in the ways that she needs to.”
Olivia once wore a white hat as she fought to serve her clients, many of whom had been wronged by politicians or the system in general. Now »

Hillary Clinton’s Craziest Pop Culture References in ‘What Happened’: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Veep,’ and More
You can tell a lot about a person by the television they watch and the books they read — even while they reveal their theories as to why they lost a Presidential election.
Clinton’s new memoir, “What Happened,” chronicling her experiences surrounding the 2016 election, is surprisingly candid on a number of levels. For example, regarding her coping mechanisms following the loss of the election, “It wasn’t all yoga and breathing: I also drank my share of chardonnay.”
But even more fascinating are the ways in which she invokes current pop culture. Some of the references feel more forced than others. Some of them are truly bonkers.
This is not a complete list of every reference made, as we omitted some of the religious, spiritual, and historical texts upon which she drew to make her points. Instead, here is all the evidence you need that the Clintons know their way around a TV remote, »

What’s Next for Darci Lynne Farmer after “America’s Got Talent” Win?
America’s Got Talent is a popular reality television show and competition that has a large number of dedicated fans. Truth be told, it isn’t quite as much of a reality show, at least in the sense that you might think of it, as it is a competition that is a throwback to earlier decades when shows like Star Search were popular. As such, that is basically the format that it follows. Contestants have to audition in order to get on the show, and then they compete throughout the season in order to see who ultimately wins for that particular season.

Teen Wolf's 18 Most Memorable Pairings Ranked: Who's on Top?
Considering the show is literally about hormonal teenage animals, it really shouldn’t surprise you how many couples Teen Wolf has produced over the course of 100 episodes.
As we approach Sunday’s series finale (MTV, 8/7c), TVLine is taking stock of the romances we rooted for — or against, in some cases — during the past six seasons. (Disclaimer: I only included actual couples that made physical contact at some point throughout the series, so pairings like “Sterek” were unfortunately ineligible.)
(Second disclaimer: After reviewing these pairings, I have to offer my condolences to Lydia. She got stuck with some real duds over the years. »

South Park Decides to Go After Trump’s Incessant Tweeting
The show South Park has never been one to play it safe. In fact, this is a show that has always taken whatever was going on in the news and then taking it to an entirely different level, often making it a part of the writing and making fun of it in the process. Such is the case with the seemingly never-ending tweets of Donald Trump. You have to admit, Trump leaves himself open to a lot of criticism through the things that he does and says. In reality, South Park is only capitalizing on this fact in order to
