    mark consuelos kelly ripa michael consuelos

    • Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa made sure to visit their son Michael Consuelos on the "Riverdale" set.
    • Michael is a guest star on the third season of the show.
    • He's playing a young version of Hiram Lodge, played by his dad, on a flashback episode.
    • Mark and Ripa surprised him in his trailer. 

    Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa surprised their son on the set of "Riverdale." 

    In duplicate videos shared to their respective Instagram stories, the happy parents knocked on 21-year-old Michael Consuelos' trailer on the set of The CW show. 

    After a few seconds, Michael opened the door and looked confused. 

    "It's 'bring your parents to work day,'" Mark, 47, happily said off-camera.  

    "Great," Michael responded. 

    The adorable video was taken while Michael is on set to play a young version of his dad's Hiram Lodge for a special flashback episode of the series. 

    The fourth episode of the season will be a dark take on "The Breakfast Club" called "The Midnight Club" and will feature the young actors playing high school versions of their parents.

    When Michael was cast to play a young version of his dad, both of his parents congratulated him on their Instagram pages. 

    "Congrats to my son Michael on being cast as the younger (and much better and handsomer) Hiram," Mark wrote.

    "Congrats Michael on being cast as young Hiram Lodge on @thecwriverdale however [Mark] and I would like to take this opportunity to remind you and your siblings that as your fiduciaries we are hereby entitled to 10% of all future earnings hereto wit, or something like that," Ripa jokingly wrote.

    Michael is currently a student at New York University. 

    "Riverdale" returns October 10 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

    Kim and Kourtney Kardashian

    • The Kardashian sisters have certainly been bringing the drama during the show's explosive 15th season, with tensions mounting between Kourtney Kardashian and her two sisters.
    • In a new preview from the upcoming August 26th episode, Kim Kardashian West seems visibly angry when she learns that Kourtney will be traveling for the holidays with her children instead of staying in California with the family.
    • Kim calls Kourtney "the new Rob," and wonders if she's crying out "for help" in a tense discussion with Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner via phone.

    Season 15 of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" has been explosive, with the three Kardashian sisters frequently coming to blows over conflicting work schedules and the overall family dynamic.

    The fights have largely been between Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian, with Kourtney saying she's 'ashamed' of her 'disgusting' family after fighting with Kim over the family's annual holiday card photo shoot. In the vicious argument, Kim was seen telling her older sister, "No one wants you in the f------ shoot. Get the f--- out of here and go. No one wants you in the shoot. I'm planning it. So no one wants you in the shoot."

    She then called Kourtney "the least exciting to look at" as Kourtney walked out.

    The sisters attempted a group therapy session, but it seemed like things were still tense between them, and in a new preview from the upcoming August 26th episode, Kim and Khloé can be seen discussing their frustrations with Kourtney, with Khloé revealing that she recently had a discussion over the phone.

    According to Khloé, Kourtney told her, "Me and Kendall were talking about you," adding, "‘You're really scared about how your life is going to turn out.' She thinks I'm scared, and that's why I'm acting out because I don't want to let my old life go."

    Khloé didn't give context as to what Kourtney might've been referring to, but she told Kim, "It's hard for me to even be around her at this point."

    The sisters then got Kendall on the phone to ask her what happened, with Kim telling Kendall, "The fact that you even hang out with Kourtney, you're such a f------ freak … I'm just kidding."

    "Why? Kourt's my best friend right now!" Kendall said, with Kim responding, "I question your morals. I question your humanity."

    facetime kourtney kardashian kendallThen, Kendall reveals that Kourtney planned to travel with her children for the holidays instead of staying home with the family, saying, "I thought that was weird, but I tried to convince her out of it a little bit. I think she'll end up coming. That would be insane if she didn't."

    Kim said, "Do you think it's like a cry for help, a cry for attention? Is she the new Rob?" referring to their brother, Rob Kardashian, who is largely absent from the show and the family's public appearances in recent years.

    The family has alluded to Rob's mental and physical health struggles, and revealed he's missed major family events, including Kim's 2014 wedding to Kanye West.

    the big bang theory show

    • It was revealed that "The Big Bang Theory" will end following the upcoming 12th season.
    • Cast members Kaley Cuoco (who stars as Penny), Kunal Nayyar (who plays Raj), and Mayim Bialik (known for her role as Amy) reacted to the news and thanked fans for their support. 
    • The show has aired on CBS since 2007. 


    "The Big Bang Theory" will officially come to an end after its 12th season — an announcement that has cast members getting emotional.

    Kaley Cuoco said her 'heart is broken in two'

    On Wednesday, star Kaley Cuoco, took to Instagram to thank fans and everyone involved with the show’s production. The actress, who plays Penny, posted a photo of the cast, which she captioned:

    "This ride has been a dream come true and as life changing as it gets," she captioned the photo."No matter when it was going to end, my heart would have always been broken in two. Drowning in tears, we promise to bring you the best season yet. To the fans, our crew, families, Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers , CBS, and everyone who has supported us for so many years, thank you. We are goin out with a bang."

    Kunal Nayyar was almost rendered speechless

    Actor Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj, reacted to the news by sharing a message on Instagram as well.

    "As you may already know ... and for those of you who don't. This will officially be Big Bang Theory's last season," he wrote. "After season 12 we will be the longest running multi camera sitcom in the history of television. There are no words in any language that can describe what my heart wants to say ... The love that I feel for all of you is boundless. Without you the fans there would be no us. Tonight I sleep with a prayer of gratitude on my lips. This isn't goodbye ... yet ... still 23 eps to shoot!"

    Mayim Bialik said the show ending was 'very sad'

    Meanwhile, Mayim Bialik, who first appeared on the series in 2010, was not happy to learn the show was ending.

    "Am I happy? Of course not. This has been my job since Melissa Rauch and I joined the cast as regulars in season four," the actress wrote on her personal website. "I love my job. I love my castmates, and I feel such appreciation for our incredible crew, our brave writers, our entire staff, and our amazing fans. So many people are a part of our Big Bang family."

    The actress also wrote that she would be mourning the loss of a steady paycheck.

    "But my paying job — the one you know me for — is ending and yes: It's very sad. I fear it's going to be very hard to not cry every day for the next 23 episodes! But, as a cast, we love bringing joy to our viewers and we will continue to do that to the best of our collective ability," Bialik wrote.

    The rest of the cast has yet to comment on the end of the series

    Cast members Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Melissa Rauch, Simon Helberg and Mayim Bialik have yet to publicly react to the cancellation news, while CBS, Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre productions said in a  joint statement they are "are extremely appreciative of the show’s success and aim to deliver a final season, and series finale, that will bring The Big Bang Theory to an epic creative close."

    News of the show's cancellation isn't entirely surprising. The network began salary negotiations in early August in an attempt to secure the show's original cast members for two more seasons. According to Entertainment Weekly, the cast would stand to make more than $50 million, if they agreed. The massive payday, however, wasn't enough to keep Parson's interest. CBS confirmed to EW they decided to end the show because Parson's decided it was time to say goodbye.

    kristen bell

    "Veronica Mars" may be making a return. 

    The fan-favorite show starring Kristen Bell as a teen detective first premiered in 2004. After three rocky seasons where it was saved from cancellation by fans, the series ended in 2007. But years later, fans put their power together once again and pitched in to a kickstarter created by show creator Rob Thomas and Bell. After raising $2 million in just 11 hours, the movie was a go and came out in 2014.

    Now, a "Mars"revival is in the works at Hulu with Bell reportedly returning.

    In honor of the show's potential comeback, here's what the cast has been up to in the years since. 

    Kristen Bell acted on stage before landing the role as the titular character on "Veronica Mars."

    Veronica was a high school student at the start of the series and was a teen detective. 

    Bell's career has taken off, and she currently stars on the hit comedy series "The Good Place."

    Bell later starred on "Heroes,""House of Lies," and was the narrator for "Gossip Girl." She broke out in movies after starring in "Forgetting Sarah Marshal" and voiced "Princess Anna" in "Frozen" and subsequent Disney projects. She returned for the "Veronica Mars" movie in 2014. 

    Teddy Dunn's first and last major role was as Duncan Kane.

    Duncan was Veronica's ex-boyfriend, but he left on the second season.

    Big Little Lies

    How much are networks shelling out to bring Hollywood stars to TV?

    In this age of proliferated programming, marquee names have become essential to bring sizable audiences to shows. And the competition among networks and producers has driven industry salaries to new heights.

    At its height, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman reportedly negotiated $1 million salaries for the upcoming second season of HBO's Emmy-winning drama, "Big Little Lies."

    And Jim Parsons of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" made headlines this week for walking away from a reported two-year, $50 million paycheck for two more seasons of the sitcom, which CBS has subsequently decided to end in 2019. 

    Here's how much the highest-paid stars on TV are earning per-episode:

    Note: Some salaries may include producing fees.

    jamie brewer gabourey sidibe taissa farmiga american horror story coven

    "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" is bringing back a number of familiar faces.

    The eighth season of FX's anthology horror series is a crossover of the first and third seasons, "Murder House" and "Coven." Though some of the actors, like Sarah Paulson, will be playing multiple characters they've portrayed in the universe, others are just confirmed from certain seasons. 

    Keeping it in the "American Horror Story" family, multiple stars are also returning as completely new characters.

    Here's a breakdown of the actors who are returning and who they are set to play. 

    "Apocalypse" premieres on FX September 12 at 10 p.m. ET. 

    Connie Britton played Vivien Harmon on the first season of "American Horror Story" called "Murder House."

    She is the matriarch of the Harmon family. While in the house, Vivien gave birth to twins, one of which is the Antichrist. Both she and the other twin died after the birth, and her soul became trapped in the home.  

    Dylan McDermott portrayed Ben Harmon, Vivien's husband.

    As he attempts to leave the house with the living baby, he is hung by the ghost of his former student. His soul is also trapped in the home. 

    Taissa Farmiga is confirmed to return as her "Coven" character and her "Murder House" character.

    On "Murder House," Farmiga played Vivien and Ben's daughter, Violet. She accidentally kills herself from a drug overdose, and her spirit is stuck in the home. 

    Farmiga plays the witch Zoe Benson on "Coven." She ended the season with a seat on the Council of Witchcraft.

    • Sacha Baron Cohen took on OJ Simpson in the season finale of his Showtime series "Who Is America?"
    • Cohen's Italian photographer character tried to get Simpson to confess to murder by repeatedly joking about killing his girlfriend. 

    Sacha Baron Cohen tried in vain to get OJ Simpson to confess to murder in the season finale of his Showtime series "Who Is America?" on Sunday.

    Disguised in the segment as an Italian photographer named Gio Monaldo, Cohen sits down with Simpson in Las Vegas and introduces his girlfriend to Simpson. In an attempt to get her to recognize Simpson, Cohen says Simpson was a Buffalo Bill and an actor in the "Naked Gun" films. The girlfriend doesn't recognize Simpson — who was found not guilty in the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1995 — until Cohen makes repeated stabbing motions with his hand.

    "She knows that, oh Jesus," Simpson replies, shaking his head and laughing.

    After the girlfriend leaves the room and Simpson calls her "gorgeous," Cohen makes a series of jokes about killing her in an attempt to get Simpson to agree with him.

    "She's gorgeous, but sometimes I want to kill her," Cohen says. "I want to send her on a private helicopter and throw her over the Grand Canyon — oopsie daisy!"

    Cohen high-fives Simpson, but Simpson laughs and repeatedly says "stop."

    In another hypothetical murder scenario, Simpson goes along with Cohen's character by saying the girlfriend might go bungee jumping with a cord that's too long.

    The segment concludes with Cohen asking Simpson how he "got away with" his wife's killing.

    "Me and you, we got something in common," Cohen says. "We both, how you say, 'ladykillers.'"

    "No, I didn't kill nobody," Simpson says, laughing.

    "Ah, I didn't either," Cohen replies.

    Watch the episode on Showtime.

    sarah palin

    • Sacha Baron Cohen's Sarah Palin interview didn't appear on "Who is America?"
    • Palin admitted she was duped by Cohen, who disguised himself as a conspiracy theorist, before the show aired.
    • The show's finale did credit her as an inadvertent publicist, though.
    • A Showtime executive suggested earlier this month that the interview wouldn't see the light of day.


    The finale of Sacha Baron Cohen's show "Who is America?" aired on Showtime Sunday night — but it didn't include one of the show's most anticipated interviews.

    Sarah Palin was arguably Sacha Baron Cohen's biggest catch. Disguised as "" founder Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr. PhD, a conspiracy theorist in the mold of a folksy Alex Jones, Cohen apparently managed to interview Palin for a segment.

    Before the show aired, Palin admitted to being duped in a long Facebook post and accused Cohen of pretending to be a military veteran (Cohen, in character, contended on Twitter that he was a veteran of the postal service).

    But the segment with Palin wasn't part of any of the show's seven episodes, leaving viewers disappointed.

    The credits did, though, thank her for giving the show publicity.

    Gary Levine, the head of programming at Showtime, suggested earlier this month at a Television Critics Association Event that the Palin segment may be cut. When he was asked about it, he said Cohen was "selective in the final product."

    "All I can say about that is there are several people who have thrown themselves into buses that may not be heading their way," he said.

    It's not clear if Showtime will make a clip of the interview available on another platform. A representative for Showtime didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

    Sansa Jon game of Thrones

    • HBO aired the first look at the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones."
    • In a promo for their 2019 schedule, the network showed a three-second clip of Sansa and Jon hugging.
    • This hug is different than their initial reunion at Castle Black.
    • Some fans were happy with the footage.
    • Others thought it was a tease. 

    Fans have been anxiously waiting for the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" since the show last aired in 2017, and HBO finally provided fans with their first look — even if it is is a measly three-second clip. 

    In a promo for the network's upcoming slate of 2019 shows, new footage shows Jon Snow approach Sansa for a tense hug at Winterfell. 

    This family embrace is more sullen then the sibling reunion at Castle Black during the seventh season. 

    It's not much to go on, but some fans still got excited.

    Though others just want more.

    When fans last saw Sansa, she was the Lady of Winterfell and had Arya kill Littlefinger for his crimes. She also didn't seem thrilled about the prospect of teaming with Daenerys. As for Jon, he was on a ship with Daenerys heading back to Winterfell. It's on that ship where the two consummated their relationship

    Sansa's icy stare in the new clip may be directed towards Daenerys' arrival at the Stark home. 

    The new hug can be seen at 1:10 in the video below. 

    "Game of Thrones" is set to return in the "first half" of 2019, though the promo merely states "coming soon."

    dick cheney who is america

    Sacha Baron Cohen's Showtime series, "Who Is America?," caused a stir before its premiere last month, as several Republican politicians felt the need to get ahead of the show in explaining how Cohen "duped" them to appear on it.

    The former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the former congressman Joe Walsh, and the former US Senate candidate Roy Moore were among those who preceded the show's premiere with statements explaining their appearances on the series and criticizing Cohen.

    In the show's first season, Cohen interviewed former vice president Dick Cheney disguised as an Israeli "anti-terror expert," and roped several Republican congressmen and former elected officials into voicing their support for a program that would arm toddlers with guns to prevent school shootings.

    In the season finale, Cohen's Italian photographer character tried to get OJ Simpson to confess to committing murder, and his right-wing conspiracy character interviewed former congressman Barney Frank. 

    Though Palin's segment didn't end up making the cut for the season finale, Cohen listed Palin in the episode's closing credits as a "Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent)" for the free marketing she gave the show.

    Here are the notable people and politicians who appeared on the first season of "Who Is America?":

    Sen. Bernie Sanders

    The show's first episode began with Cohen interviewing Sanders, the Vermont senator who was a Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, as a right-wing conspiracy theorist character named Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr.

    Sanders, with a perplexed expression, politely dodged and shut down various absurd questions on income inequality and other topics from Cohen's Ruddick.

    Larry Pratt, executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America

    In the strongest segment on the pilot episode, Cohen's Israeli "anti-terror expert" character, Col. Erran Morad, introduced Pratt and several other conservative political figures to a fake program called "Kinderguardians" that would arm children as young as 3.

    Pratt endorsed the program and, reading off a teleprompter, said: "Toddlers are pure, uncorrupted by fake news or homosexuality. They don't care if it's politically correct to shoot a mentally deranged gunman. They'll just do it."

    Florida congressman Matt Gaetz

    Cohen's Morad character interviewed Gaetz for the pilot's segment on arming toddlers, but Gaetz wisely sidestepped the topic, saying, "Typically members of Congress don't just hear a story about a program and then indicate whether they support it or not."

    • On Sunday night's episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," the family fought over their plans for the holidays.
    • Kourtney Kardashian didn't want to attend the family Christmas party because Scott Disick would be there, and she wanted to bring then-boyfriend Younes Bendjima.
    • In the end, both Kardashian and Disick ended up attending, and so did Bendjima.

    This season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" has only recently kicked off, but already, there's been major drama among the family — especially where the Kardashian women are involved. After many arguments between Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney have broken out, on Sunday night, Kourtney was wrapped up in the drama again, and this time, it was all about the family's holiday plans.

    Basically, the argument was about whether or not Scott Disick would be invited to Kris Jenner's annual Christmas party. The rest of the family thought that Disick should obviously be in attendance — even though he and Kourtney are no longer together, he's still Mason, Reign, and Penelope's father and part of their family.

    But Kourtney wanted to bring boyfriend Younes Bendjima (who she has since broken up with) and thought it might be awkward for him and Scott to be at the same party together… even though Scott swore it wasn't a big deal (for him, at least).

    Kendall was totally on Kourtney's side, though, especially since Kris originally didn't want to invite Caitlyn Jenner because nobody at the party "would even know how to respond to her," and of course, Kendall wanted to have both of her parents at the party, too.

    Kendall and Kris

    Kourtney was torn between wanting Scott to be there for their kids and wanting to keep the peace between her ex and her boyfriend … and, of course, she felt like her family wasn't prioritizing her feelings if they'd invite Scott against her wishes.

    "You didn’t have a relationship with my dad for 25 years?” Kendall asked her mother.

    In the end, Caitlyn was invited — although she didn't actually show up. 

    Kourtney later confided to Kendall that she wasn't sure she wanted to attend the party because of the drama with her sisters and because of Scott. 

    Kourtney Kardashian Scott Disick

    “I just don’t know if we’re going to get along if we’re all in the same place,” Kourtney told her. “The meanness and stuff, it’s not worth it.”

    But Scott ultimately was invited — and attended — after he and Kourtney were able to hash out the situation themselves.

    "I think that our lives are changing. If my boyfriend is going to the party, if you're there, I just don't want any disrespect," Kourtney told Scott. "I've been feeling super anxious … but I don't want the kids to not have their dad there."

    Ultimately, the party went off without a hitch and Kourtney and Scott both got to celebrate the holiday with their children.

    “Not sharing this whole experience with my family and my kids, it wouldn’t have felt right,” Kourtney later said of her decision.

    Television is still the media medium of choice amongst adults in the US, with Americans aged 18 or older watching an average of almost five hours a day, according to a Total Audience Report.

    But as this chart from Statista, based on Nielsen data, shows, younger adults watch significantly less television than do older adults — Americans ages 18 through 34 watch a third of what adults aged 50 to 64 do.

    That could be explained by members of older age groups having already entered retirement, therefore having more time to spare to watch television. But the more likely culprit is the younger generation's tendency toward streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video instead of traditional network television.

    roseanne dan conner john goodman

    • John Goodman said Roseanne Barr's character would be killed off on "The Conners." 
    • In an interview with The Sunday Times, Goodman said his character's wife is "dead." 
    • "The Conners" is a spin-off of "Roseanne" after the revival was cancelled following a racist tweet from Barr. 
    • Goodman's mention of his TV wife's death is the first time it has been mentioned. 

    Roseanne Conner's fate has been up in the air since the "Roseanne" revival was cancelled and the spin-off "The Conners" was announced, but actor John Goodman divulged some information in a new interview.

    Though Goodman didn't go into much detail about the specifics surrounding his TV wife, played by Roseanne Barr, he told The Sunday Times that his character Dan Conner will be "mopey and sad because his wife's dead."

    ABC cancelled the revival in May after Barr sent a racist Tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. At the time, the president of ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey called her tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values." 

    The network announced the spin-off centered on the Conner family in June and confirmed that Barr would not return to play the family's matriarch. But how they planned to explain her absence wasn't revealed. The revival's finale ended with Roseanne preparing for knee surgery, as well as dealing with an addiction to pain pills. 

    Goodman's explanation to the Times is the first time any mention of killing Barr's iconic character has been made. 

    ABC didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment. 

    "The Conners" will premiere October 16, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

    guy pearce the innocents

    • Guy Pearce, who stars in the new Netflix original series "The Innocents," said in a recent interview that the company told him not to talk about "binge-watching" in interviews promoting the Netflix series.
    • Though it's unclear exactly where the phrase "binge-watching" originated, Netflix did use the term in a press release as early as December 2013, the year it released its first original series, "House of Cards."

    Though the rise of Netflix popularized the term "binge-watching" to describe how the company's subscribers tended to consume multiple episodes of a series in one sitting, Netflix now appears to have soured on the phrase.

    Guy Pearce, who stars in the new Netflix original "The Innocents," said in an interview with Empire Magazine's film podcast (via IndieWire) that the company told him not to use the phrase "binge-watching" while promoting the series. 

    "I don't think Netflix likes the term 'binge,'" Pearce said when Empire asked him if viewers would binge-watch "The Innocents.""When we did the promotion for ['The Innocents'] in the [United States], we were strictly sort of instructed beforehand not to talk about 'binge-watching.'"

    Pearce didn't elaborate on Netflix's reasoning for the policy, but one assumes that the company has taken issue with the term "binge" for its connection to disorders like binge-eating and binge-drinking. (Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter from Business Insider.)

    It's unclear exactly where the phrase "binge-watching" originated. But Netflix did use the phrase in a press release as early as December 2013, the year it released its first big original series, "House of Cards," in promoting survey results that found binge-watching was a "widespread behavior" among TV audiences. 

    Pearce stars in the supernatural Netflix series "The Innocents" as a doctor who treats shapeshifting beings. The series debuted on August 24.

    Don Draper of "Mad Men" cheated every time he got the chance.

    From the first season, all the way through to the last, Don was incapable of staying faithful to his partners.

    "Mad Men" was ostensibly a show about advertising — but it was really a character study of a man with a fake identity who couldn't help but cheat on every woman he was ever with.

    Tony Soprano of "The Sopranos" acted like having a "goumada" was his right.

    In "The Sopranos," Tony seemingly cheated with no guilt whatsoever. Hiding behind his culture, he seemed to think it would've been weirder for him not to cheat.

    Ironically, his wife Carmela decided she'd had enough around the same time that he seemed to be downshifting the infidelity.

    Issa cheated on Lawrence in "Insecure," leading to their breakup.

    "Insecure" creator Issa Rae was excited to explore the ramifications of a cheating woman.

    "The idea of a woman cheating is so bewildering for a lot of men," she told Entertainment Weekly, "like it's a huge mark of betrayal for them in a way that's kind of a double standard."

    Noah Centineo on Austin and Ally and To All the Boys I've Loved Before Netflix Disney Channel

    • Noah Centineo is the star of the Netflix movie "To All the Boys I've Loved Before."
    • The 22-year-old actor got his first break on the Disney Channel show "Austin & Ally."
    • In a clip from the show, fans can see how he's changed in just seven years.

    Actor Noah Centineo is skyrocketing in popularity after his breakout performance in Netflix's "To All the Boys I've Loved Before."

    But the 22-year-old's first major onscreen role came in 2011 with Disney Channel's original series "Austin & Ally," where Centineo played a teen crush of one of the main characters.

    One clip from the show has been racking up views ever since Centineo mentioned the show during a BuzzFeed video interview about his "firsts." The star said he first realized he was famous when two kids at a movie theater recognized him as Dallas on "Austin & Ally" and asked for his autograph.

    Many fans who saw this BuzzFeed interview likely went searching for footage of Centineo, and found this clip:

    Many of the top comments on the video, which was uploaded back in 2012, are now about Centineo and his role as Peter Kavinsky in "To All the Boys I've Loved Before."

    The most popular comment so far on the video is an all-caps exclamation about Centineo with over 5,000 "thumbs-up" votes:


    "Damn Peter Kavinsky glowed up," one commenter wrote.

    "He's so cute now and then but wow his voice changed so much i love it!" one YouTuber wrote in a comment that has been favorited over 2,000 times.

    Many others wrote that they looked up this video to see if it was really him, because 15-year-old Centineo's voice and hair have changed a lot in the last seven years. The video currently has just under half a million views on YouTube.

    Centineo most recently starred on Freeform's "The Fosters," the third and final season of which concluded this summer. You can also see him in a second Netflix rom-com, "Sierra Burgess Is a Loser," which premieres on September 7.

    For more on "To All the Boys I've Loved Before," read about the four great scenes that were improvised by Centineo and his co-star Lana Condor.

    game of thronesWrapping up a TV series after years of storylines is a difficult thing to do, and finales tend to leave viewers divided. Tons of ideas get thrown around when it comes time to end a series, but producers ultimately have to make a decision — they also tend to give themselves options, just in case.

    From "Game of Thrones" to "How I Met Your Mother," here are 13 TV shows that have multiple endings whether they're alternate stories or were created to deter spoilers.

    There's an alternate "Seinfeld" finale where Jerry and the gang don't go to prison.

    "Seinfeld" wrapped up nine seasons of episodes with a two-part finale that was largely hated by fans. The series ended with Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), George (Jason Alexander), and Kramer (Michael Richards) getting arrested and sentenced to a year in jail for failing to help a man who was being car-jacked.

    In an alternate ending included in the series' DVD box set, the jury found the character not guilty of criminal indifference, much to disappointment of those who testified against them.

    "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star said the finale "betrayed" the point of the show.

    After six seasons, "Sex and the City" ended with Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker)  and Big (Chris Noth) getting together. The two reunited in Paris after Carrie breaks things off with Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov). The series' finale scene reveals Mr. Big's real name is John and he tells Carrie that he's put his home in Napa on the market and he's moving back to New York to be with her.

    Series creator Darren Star revealed that he didn't write the final episode and wasn't happy with the way the show ended.

    "But I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage. Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached," he said in an interview with journalist David Blum.

    Two other endings were also filmed and were later included as extras on the series' DVDs. In one version, Carrie returns to New York and asks her friends to be bridesmaids for her wedding to Petrovsky. In another version, Carrie reveals she ended things with both men.

    There's an alternate ending to "How I Met Your Mother" that isn't as depressing.

    The series finale of "How I Met Your Mother" is one of the most controversial in TV history.

    After nine seasons, the identity of the show's titular mother was revealed, but viewers also learned she died six years before Ted (Josh Radnor) began telling his teenage children the story of how they met. The show ends with his children urging him to call Robin (Cobie Smulders) and ask her out.

    Fans who hated the ending received a bit of good news, when show co-creator Carter Bay announced that an alternate ending would be included on the DVD.

    "If you didn't like the finale, I guess that happens. We tried something and it didn't connect with you. I hope we're still friends," Bays wrote on Twitter. "16 days ago today we were in the HIMYM edit room, trying to decide between two very different endings. We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series. We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too."

    In the alternate ending, Ted's wife Tracy (Cristin Milioti) is still alive when he's telling his children the story and the show quickly flashes back to all the moments and missteps that eventually led the two to meet on a train platform.

    bachelor in paradise"Bachelor in Paradise" is now five seasons old. In that time, over 100 former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants have hit the sandy beaches of Mexico. They've come in search of love, or 15 minutes more of fame, or just a great summer.

    Still, even if you've been dutifully watching since season one, the show is such a revolving door of former contestants that it can be hard to keep track of it all. Season five added contestants from "Bachelor" spin-offs in other countries. It's not "Bachelor" Nation now, it's "Bachelor" World.

    But let's bring it back to Mexico for a minute, because you need to know these surprising things about "Bachelor in Paradise."

    1. It's filmed at an actual resort and you can stay there.

    According to Glamour, "BiP" films at the Playa Escondida hotel in Sayulita, Mexico. It's a functional hotel where you can book your own beach-side stay for anywhere from $165-$495 a night, according to the resort website.

    2. You can also get a tour of the town from Jorge.

    According to Bustle, Jorge the bartender has actually moved on from serving drinks and now runs his own tour company that takes tourists around nearby Nayarit, Mexico. According to Jorge's website, you can even tour some of the "BiP" date locations.

    3. The show wasn't always filmed in Sayulita.

    dwts judges season 25

    Dancing is "way more difficult than people think,""Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba told Hollywood Life.

    And she's right. But for some celebrities who have tried their hand at dancing, it's been a little more difficult than others. We rounded up some of the celebrities who have gotten panned for their dancing abilities by critics and the judges alike. 

    Not even the Worm and raising-the-roof could save Steve Wozniak.

    The Apple co-founder really left an impression on the "DWTS" cast and crew.

    "We cast Steve because he was the most left-field booking imaginable," former showrunner Conrad Green said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "He did the most distinctive inter­pretation of the Worm ever seen on any dance floor. [Judge] Bruno Tonioli is still shuddering at the memory."

    Master P didn't exactly kill it.

    The rapper was loved by the crowd — he was so popular, he made it four weeks despite receiving the lowest scores every single time he competed. But Inaba counts him as one of her bottom-three worst celebrity dancers in the show's history.

    "I love him but his dancing… well, you know," Inaba told Hollywood Life.

    Evander Holyfield couldn't quite float like a butterfly.

    The boxer also made Inaba's list of the worst stars on the show.

    "He gets extra points because he was the very first athlete on the show," Inaba told Hollywood Life. "He went for it and I give him a lot of credit for that."
