If fans of ABC's "Revenge" feel like making a drinking game out of watching the soapy series, they now have a drink of choice: the Black Dahlia. In Wednesday's episode, "Treachery," the real Emily Thorne--I'll call her Amanda (Margarita Levieva) to make things easier--mixed up a few Black Dahlias for herself and bar hunk Jack (Nick Wechsler). I looked around the web for the drink and found many versions of it. But not the "Revenge" version. So here's the recipe as Amanda said it: BLACK DAHLIA 3 ounces of vodka 1 ounce Creme de cassis "A little"...

Christmas may have just passed, but if you're paying attention to some of TV's biggest shows, you'd think it was Halloween. There has been one common theme as fall finales wind down, and it's not snow or merrymaking. It's death. Main characters are dropping faster than snowflakes, so we're letting you know whom you should be grieving by taking a look at what their headstones might look like. BEWARE SPOILERS! Clay Morrow, 'Sons of Anarchy' Clay was booted from his position as president of the club after numerous betrayals.

I'm in a bind. My friend Elliott and I bought tickets to see the much-anticipated conclusion to Chris Nolan's Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises” on IMAX this Wednesday. Let me note that this is exactly the way I want to see it. With over an hour of footage shot specifically for the IMAX screen, it's one of the few times a $20 movie ticket is totally worth it (“Avatar” and “Watchmen” being very important instances of when it was not). Secondly, I'm very happy to be going on a bro-date with Elliott.

One of three chefs with Chicago ties on Bravo's"Around the World in 80 Plates"reached the end of the road Wednesday night. On a show of big personalities, travel agent-turned-chef Gary Walker proved himself a reliable supplier of one-liners and a steady source of entertainment for fans. The ladies of the Kappa Phi Delta sorority house at Illinois Institute of Technology, where Walker worked as a chef before filming the show, even got a shout-out when he chugged beer during a pub crawl challenge on the show's first episode filmed in London.

The second of three chefs with Chicago ties on Bravo's “Around the World in 80 Plates” reached the end of the road Wednesday night. Nick Lacasse, who has worked as chef at The Drawing Room in the Gold Coast for the past six years, performed well in the episode's cooking challenges, but was voted off the show as a result of his fellow team members' immunity and alliances with one another. Even though his journey was cut short, we'll always remember him for spouting off one of the funniest one-liners of the series so far: When fellow team member Steve “Nookie” Postal asked him...

Something tells me Nucky Thompson's shocking move in the Season 2 finale of "Boardwalk Empire" will come back to haunt him. A new teaser for the HBO drama's third season (spoiler alert!) replays in super slo-mo Nucky (Steve Buscemi) gunning down his one-time protege Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt), who betrayed his former mentor in a political coup. It's dark and moody, which suggests Nucky will feel the reprecussions of the murder for a long time to come. The most revealing part of the clip shows Nucky looking over Darmody's body, and as he drops...
