American Horror Story: Coven killed off a witch this week.

For real. For good. For 100% dead.

So, who got the literal axe? Who is going to Hell, as the title of the installment so eloquently put it? You can watch American Horror Story online below and/or scroll down for the answer...

FIONA!

Yes, this Supreme's reign of terror is finally over, due to a cunning move by Sarah Paulson's Cordlelia.

American Idol revved up its audition engine and touched down in Detroit last night, a city known for cars, bankruptcy… and great music.

Did the aspiring singers on Season 13 live up the Motor City reputation? Yes, actually. We only heard one "no" through the show's first half hour or so, in fact.

That's unheard of!

But which on the "yes" side truly stood out? Who might actually go on to be the next American Idol? Let's count down the Top 5, shall we?

Pretty Little Liars once again delivered a major shocker and once again waited until the closing moments of an episode to do so.

Yes, PLLers, Alison is back!

Is she a victim? Is she behind all the games, manipulations and frightful adventures over the years? These are the questions the Liars - and us viewers, of course - are now left to deal with.

Aside from building this mystery, though, Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Episode 16 delved nicely into the characters themselves.

Spencer continued to keep herself isolated, blowing up at everyone from Emily to Toby. She simply won't let that whole putting-her-in-Radley thing go, especially when it comes to her dad.

Why does he keep protecting Jessica DiLaurentis? It's unclear. But Spencer's way of attacking him isn't getting her closer to the answer.

It's no shock that Spencer thinks Alison is trying to divide the group and doesn't trust her. But, ironically, Spencer arguing with Emily over their returning pal's intentions is making that exact development take place.

Is this really Ali's main game?

Then, of course, there's Ezra. Could he be any creepier?!? And who was that blonde woman we saw him yelling at? Can you believe he tried to sabotage Jake's equipment? There's a feeling of anxiety any time Aria is along with the guy.

Finally… Hanna and Travis?!? Really?!? We really hope you aren't reading this right now, Caleb. Sorry, bud.

What did everyone else think of the latest installment? Watch Pretty Little Liars online now and sound off!

The more things changed on The Following Season 2 premiere, the more they stayed very much the same.

Yes, we jumped ahead a year in the life of Ryan Hardy and, yes, he seemed to be doing a lot better as a professor no longer affiliated with the FBI.

But we quickly saw that he's still haunted by Joe Carroll and still looking into the serial killer's acolytes at night.

And we also learned that there are plenty of them to look into.

The scariest new characters, by far, are both played by Sam Underwood. Twins Mark and Luke feel like a different entity from the cult members we met last year, with one of them dancing around and talking to a dead girl.

There was mud. There were mullets. There was pooting. And there was sex talk based around cereal.

Yes, folks, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo kicked off Season 3 in style last night.

The opening episode centered around Sugar Bear needing his own space, especially when talked to maxi pads and when Pumpkin turned the house into her own beauty parlor.

Enter The Manper.

This monstrosity was parked in the driveway, much to June Shannon's outrage, as the woman who "wears the stretch pants" in the family insisted she'd force her now-husband to get rid of it.

It's early, but American Idol Season 13 already has a big problem:

These judges are way too likable. They're funny, they're relaxed, they share great chemistry, they can be honest when need be.

Where the Nicki and Mariah-like feuding? The Randy-ish repetitiveness? How are we able to be snark when the show has actually been pretty entertaining throughout two audition episodes?

American Idol in San Francisco

This week, Idol finished off its Austin showcase and then took off for San Francisco, where the panelists listened to A LOT of White Guys With Guitars.

And where Harry Connick Jr. continued to be awesome.

Duck Dynasty kicked off Season 5 with back-to-back episodes last night... and nary a word about the Phil Robertson gay controversy.

Nope. It was business as usual for this family, which welcomed back a loved one and which held a few totally insane (read: awesome) conversations.

Viewers met Rebecca (and her five suitcases) early in the opener. Willie and Korie’s exchange-student-turned-daughter, she spent the last two years interning in the fashion industry way out in Los Angeles.

We were taken into her welcome home party, but couldn't focus on anything aside from Si watching Air Bud (because he was sick) and taking a stance more controversial than anything Phil said about homosexual or teen marriage:

Air Bud is superior to Jason Bourne.

American Idol is a singing show that comes down to its contestants.

That's what we're told year after year by producers, but we came away from last night's Season 13 premiere with one thoughts:

HARRY CONNICK JR. IS THE MAN!

The new judge was harsh and honest when he needed to be. But also a total jokester throughout, most notable when he cradled Munfarid Zaidi in his arms (below) during the hopeful's audition.

Ah yes, there were plenty of auditions.

Pretty Little Liars reminded viewers of its title this week,

Yes, it's called Pretty Little Liars for a reason, most notably because these pretty young girls lie to nearly everyone around them... including each other.

We can start with Ali in "Love ShAck, Baby," whose diary was "creative nonfiction with pseudonyms," as Spencer rightly explained it. How could the girls decode this writing?

By investigating the stories, of course, such as a poem about a bumblebee that lead them to The Busy Bee, a bed and breakfast where… Ali was hiding out? Not quite.

ABC taught us a very valuable lesson on Episode 2 of The Bachelor Season 18.

Or, rather, Victoria taught us the valuable lesson.

Nice and sauced during a group photo shoot for Best Friends Animal Society, the aspiring wife had a few too many and drunkenly said of the show's sizzling star:

"This is how I am sober. If Juan Pablo is mine, I'm going to straddle him everyday. 'Cause life is about straddling. People and things."

Oh, but Victoria's antics didn't end there: she locked herself in a bathroom and demanded to leave the series, forcing Juan Pablo to ask the other women to make sure she made it home safely.
