If you've ever wondered what it would look like for MTV News guy Josh Horowitz to straddle "A.C.O.D." star Adam Scott, well, you're in luck (and really weird). The actor is the guest on this week's After Hours, appearing in the segment "Up Close," in which interviewer and interviewee appear in uncomfortable proximity, while discussing more than a few awkward topics.
You'll only know just how bizarre things gets by clicking on the clip above! (Though don't say we didn't warn you...)

This past Sunday was the premiere episode of Lifetime's "Witches of East End" series, the television show based on my novel of the same name. Ever since the show was announced and publicized, I've been bathing in the warm afterglow of kudos, congratulations and well wishes. It's been a fun ride. And I've told everyone who's asked what I'll tell you now. What's it like to see your book on the screen? For me, the answer is: VERY PLEASANT.
I can't find another word to describe it. It's been a wonderful ride. I've been selling my books to Hollywood for over a decade. Many of my books have been optioned many times. I was tired of being seduced and abandoned by Hollywood. I'd had too many dreams, and too many dreams crushed.
So by the time "Witches of East End" came up for sale, I was old, chickens. I was old and tired and jaded and ready for nothing to come of it. I didn't even think about it much. The head of my management company, 3Arts, the venerable Erwin Stoff, told me he would like to produce it before it was published. I had no idea how BIG this was. I just took it for granted—oh, you too? Many, many people have wanted to produce my books, dear Erwin...get in line. But I said yes. I liked Erwin. I liked the movies and TV shows he'd made.
FROM MTV NEWS: Congratulations are in order for "Glee" star Naya Rivera: Sassy Santana's real-life alter ego is getting hitched! (Wonder what Demi Lovato has to say about this!)
E! News confirmed that the actress is getting hitched to rapper boyfriend Big Sean. The two began dating earlier this year, making their debut as a couple at the April premiere of the movie "42."

Julie Plec had her work cut out for her with last night's series premiere of "The Originals."
"The Vampire Diaries" executive producer created and launched the new drama about the Original vampire family via what the television industry calls a "backdoor pilot": a tester of sorts disguised as an episode of "The Vampire Diaries." That maneuver doesn't always work (sorry about your luck, Dwight Schrute centered spin-off from "The Office"), but this one passed with flying colors.
The appropriately titled "Always and Forever" series premiere had the difficult challenge of establishing a new show for folks who've never seen "TVD" (and seriously, who are those people?), while pleasing longtime fans of the Mystic Falls mythology. And the way the season premiere was able to simultaneously serve audiences both old and new was nothing short of excellent to say the least.

This week, "Glee" presents the Beatles with the greatest gift a television series centered on a glee club can bestow upon a band: by immortalizing them with a musical homage for a second straight week! Other than being knighted, and perhaps the birth of his children, this is probably the highest honor ever presented to Sir Paul McCartney.
Let's get to the action!
McKinley High's prom is approaching, and everyone is eagerly awaiting the nominees for prom king and queen. Mr. Schue crosses his fingers in anticipation—seemingly unaware that he is ineligible since, despite his overwhelming behavior that would suggest the contrary, he is not technically a student.

Considering anyone who's anyone was waiting and obsessing over and just generally going through the motions of life until "The Vampire Diaries" returned, it’s not surprising that Julie Plec knew what I did last summer. But, oh. Someone just mentioned that the episode title was referring to the characters. Right. Makes total sense. I’m not embarrassed at all.
But clearly, I was more excited about last night’s premiere than any human should have been. And I’m happy to report that the episode didn't disappoint.
Here are the goods:
Guys, there's soooo much good TV on tonight. In addition to the premieres of "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals," "Glee" returns with a brand-new episode featuring none other than Demi Lovato!
Demi will be playing Dani, a love interest to Naya Rivera's Santana. Make sure those DVRs are set!
In case you were wondering, yes, there are "Angels in the Outfield." This, according to "Don Jon" actor Tony Danza, who along with co-star and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt kindly appeared on our latest After Hours episode, "The Yes/No Show."
Other tidbits you'll learn during the quick clip: JGL does not like being called "jiggle," Tony is contractually obligated to be named "Tony" in at least half of his films, and Joe totally understood "Inception."

For four seasons, I've been attempting to spread the gospel of "The Vampire Diaries." (I know it’s shocking, but a lot of people in their twenties and older don’t exactly appreciate hot twenty or thirty-somethings pretending to be teenage vampires and witches and werewolves. Crazy, right?) But I think I've finally succeeded! Because only something of serious cultural importance (ahem, “The Vampire Diaries”) would still be going on when the government’s shut down! Am I right?!
So, I've decided it’s my duty to prepare you for tonight’s season five premiere of this all-important cultural institution. Which I will do right now.
Here’s what we know:
