'TURN: Washington's Spies' recap: Both sides step up covert activity

Covert operations intensify on both sides of the Revolutionary War in “False Flag,” Episode 203 of “TURN: Washington’s Spies” on AMC.

General George Washington (Ian Kahn) praises a “wonderfully detailed” report from the Culper spy ring regarding Redcoat military maneuvers in New York City. But he dismisses as “unclear” a four-word message from Philadelphia accusing General Charles Lee (Brian T. Finney) of treason.

“I beg your pardon sir, but this is clear as day,” exclaims Maj. Ben Tallmadge (Seth Numrich), head of American intelligence. “Gen. Lee is a traitor!”

“The spirits of the men are lifted after our victory at Saratoga,” Washington calmly replies. “Now is not the time to disparage a fellow general.”

Ben refuses to drop the matter, however. A patrol under his command was “butchered” in an ambush and Ben suspects Lee tipped off the British.

To set a trap, Ben forges a letter from Gen. Horatio Gates (David Bryan Jackson) to Lee calling for Washington’s immediate ouster. Lee’s response...

It's real: 'Full House' will be reincarnated as 'Fuller House' on Netflix

It's official: "Full House" is coming back to TV. Or more accurately, to Netflix.

The streaming giant confirmed Monday that it has ordered 13 episodes of "Fuller House," a reboot of the 1987-1995 ABC family sitcom about a widower (Bob Saget) trying to raise three daughters with the help of two male friends.

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse in the original "Full House," will reprise his role, as will Candace Cameron-Bure, who played eldest daughter D.J., Jodie Sweetin is also coming back as middle daughter Stephanie Tanner.

Jeff Franklin, who created the original series, is likewise returning.

Stamos also confirmed the news on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Monday night, saying he had just "sealed the deal" minutes before he went on the show.

We were trying to do some sort of spinoff, we wanted to give credit to the legacy, we didn’t want to just sort of throw it away," he said. "It starts off as a reunion that then spins off."

He told Kimmel the idea has been in the works for years: "We've been...

'Gotham' recap, 'Under the Knife'

The Ogre is on the loose, and Jim is on the clock to find him before he finds Leigh.

But Leigh isn't the loved one the Ogre has chosen to use as retaliation against Jim. That would be Barbara.

Social media doesn't exist in "Gotham," so he can't go based off a Facebook relationship status to see who Jim's with.

Instead, the Ogre discovers an old picture in the newspaper of Jim with Barbara at a charity event.

The Ogre finds Barbara at a bar and seduces her. She invites him back to her place, and he's ready to kill her until he discovers she tells him she doesn't have a boyfriend.

"If a bus hit me tomorrow, no one would care." Sheesh. Breakups suck, but it does get better, Barb.

Even with if she's unwittingly giving him the green light to kill her, the Ogre realizes that killing her would have no impact on Jim. So, he hides his knife and leaves — for now.

But there's something she says that sticks with him: "Once you see the real me, you would run screaming like everyone else."

At first...

'Dancing With The Stars' recap, Spring Break week

It's "Spring Break" week. I'm not even sure what that means except for gross things like wet T-shirt contests, beer funnels and parents having to deal with kids out of school/daycare for five days straight. The opening credits are all swimming pools, sand, surf and ice cream cones. Except for Miss Patti LaBelle, who's sitting like a lady with her fan open and fluttering. She's my role model, y'all.

Two rounds tonight: Individual dances and then the first team dance of the season.

Patti LaBelle & Artem Chigvintsev


Artem didn't have spring break because he grew up in Russia, and Patti didn't have a spring break because she's from back before that sort of thing went on.

Patti starts out on a chaise longue and is helped up by a couple of pool boys. Again, my role model. They have four backup dancers with them, and I really don't like the backup dancers. It's one thing for one pro to tone themselves down to make the star look good; it's another thing to have five of them running with...

'The Voice' recap: The Top 10 raise the bar

Midway through “The Voice” Top 10 performance show on Monday night, Carson Daly said what we’d all been thinking.

“Something [is] going on tonight, ladies and gentlemen,” the host observed, as 16-year-old Koryn Hawthorne, of Team Pharrell Williams, finished singing a highly emotional version of Ed Sheeran’s “Make It Rain.”

The crowd and coaches had erupted into yet another standing ovation – having already risen to their feet for Team Christina’s Kimberly Nichole and Team Blake’s Meghan Linsey. And they would rise again before the evening had ended.

“Some awesome performances on the show tonight,” Daly added, “that is clear by the energy in the room.”

Blake Shelton agreed. “This is not the episode of ‘The Voice’ that you want to slip up even a little bit,” he said. “These performances …”

No doubt about it, the evening brought numerous standout performances – thanks in part, perhaps, to the inclusion of some pretty accomplished producers in the rehearsal process.

'Once Upon a Time': Cruella De Vil is the worst

"Sympathy for the De Vil" is a really misleading title for Sunday night's episode of "Once Upon a Time." Cruella De Vil, sort of the third wheel when it came to power among the queens of evil triumvirate, proves that she is most likely the worst of the bunch, and may have put Rumpelstiltskin's plans right on track.

First we go back to England in the early 1900s where we meet a little Cruella De Vil, tormented by her mean mother as she's chased through the forest by her mom's two dalmatians. It seems the little girl has a Cinderella type of situation with a father who's recently deceased and what appears to be a wicked mother or stepmother.

In the present, Maleficent confronts Cruella, who skids to a stop to avoid hitting the all-powerful sorceress. Apparently Cruella knew something about Maleficent's child, Lily, and never told her.  It's simple, actually, says Cruella. "I'm a really terrible person and I left her in the woods to die."  Wow. So, of course, Maleficent dragons up, but that...
