From LA Examiner: Brief 'Scandal' Thoughts From Kerry Washington & Katie Lowes; Charisma Carpenter Hosts Charity Concert in L.A; 'The Voice' Auditions Return to L.A; On Writing with Amy Harris and 'The Carrie Diaries'...


The fact that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) ultimately went along with a conspiracy to rig the election to allow Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to win the popular vote, thereby becoming the President of the United States is something Scandal fans have known for awhile. Yet in “A Criminal, a Whore, an Idiot, and a Liar” audiences were finally treated to the backstory of that decision to see that it was not only not Olivia spearheading the idea, but it was also a decision that could have crossed the line for her but one that she made when she felt she had no other choice. Kudos to Shonda Rhimes and company for managing to deliver such tension in an episode where ultimately we knew just as much going in about what would happen as we did going out... [MORE]

"The Carrie Diaries EP breaks down her "origin story" of Carrie's "firsts"

The Carrie Diaries is not your mother's Carrie Bradshaw, and thank God for that, right? Young Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) is only a high school junior when we meet her in The Carrie Diaries. She just lost her mother over the summer, and she has instinctively stepped up to help raise her younger sister, but she is still going to school, dealing with friends and boys and dances and internships. Series executive producer Amy B. Harris emphatically called her series a "coming of age" tale that would be heightened because of its 1980s time period and New York City setting... [MORE
