The FX Cold War drama is revved up and ready as it starts its final season, humming along at a swift pace, dropping revelations right and left — no political pun intended.
Hello, old friends — and by friends, we mean our favorite TV shows. And as with any friend who’s been away for some time, it's nice to catch up on what's been going on and discover what's new.
If you were hoping to get some serious scoop on the final season of “The Americans” out of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys when they appeared on “The Late Show” on Wednesday, you were probably disappointed.

Nina had survived so much, for so long, avoiding what seemed like a certain death sentence after getting caught double-agenting with Stan Beeman, and then rebounding into triple-agent work and an affair with co-worker Oleg Burov. Game of Thrones’ gentle giant met a most ungentle end, torn to pieces by White Walkers as his charge, Bran, is spirited away into the night.
There’s one thing everyone can usually agree on at the Thanksgiving dinner table — the sides are the best part. In that spirit, Yahoo TV is using the holiday to honor the supporting players that have made watching TV this year a delicious treat.
Asking celebrities who or what they’re wearing on an Emmys red carpet is a common thing. And while giving the stars a chance to humble-brag about a designer is always a nice thing to do, Yahoo Superfan’s Khail Anonymous was asking about a different kind of fashion on this year’s Emmys red carpet: what are you wearing tomorrow?
The Emmys: Who Should Win Note the phrasing here: These are picks for who I think should win the Emmy awards that will be handed out on Sunday night.

The Americans wraps up its fourth season on FX Wednesday night with an hour in keeping with everything that has preceded it. Which is to say, tightly coiled drama that doesn’t need to raise its voice very frequently to generate suspense and high emotion. “It’s been a hard year,” Matthew Rhys’s Philip says to Frank Langella’s Gabriel at one point in the finale, written by show-runner/creators Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields.

While most Mother’s Day celebrations are all about remembering the warmest and fuzziest maternal moments, we’ve decided to give shout-outs to mommies of another kind: TV’s most manipulative mothers. You know the old saying, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”? These moms take that idea to heart, ensuring that everyone is onboard with what will make them happy… no matter what subtle, and sometimes not–so-subtle, methods they have to employ to make it so.
Never mind what Marty McFly says. In our opinion, it’s totally cool to be chicken. March 19 marks National Poultry Day, and we’re seizing the opportunity to celebrate some of our current favorite TV chickens. Not actual fowl, of course, although there are plenty of those to be found on the airwaves.
It’s a new year, and 2016 brings us a slew of new shows to watch, dissect, binge, and obsess over.

There was an unprecedented variety of excellent dramas this year… as well as an unprecedented amount of them. But with the range of tone, genre, casting, styles of writing and direction — this was truly a ripe year for drama, spreading across network, basic and premium cable, and streaming as well.
