It's been 15 years since we first met best friends Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) on HBO's ground-breaking series "Sex and the City" (based on the novel by Candace Bushnell). While the dating scene has changed considerably since the series debuted (hello, OKCupid and Snapchat!), the truths about life and love that it offered up remain relevant.
As we celebrate the show's 15th anniversary, we reminisce about our favorite episodes.
With its bevy of bodacious babes and sunny setting, The CW's "Privileged" is one of our favoritest shows to ever gain admittance into the Annals of TV Series Gone Too Soon. (Here's hoping she's having a torrid love affair with "Freaks and Geeks"...) Canceled after its first season, "Privileged" followed Yale graduate Megan Smith (played by the perpetually plucky Joanna Garcia Swisher), who accepted a job nannying for a pair of spoiled Palm Beach brats with the hopes of writing a book about her experiences.
The series helped launch the careers of several actors—including "Pretty Little Liars" starlet Lucy Hale, who played twin Rose Baker. Though some stars haven't fared quite so well, we couldn't help but notice that this week in particular has been a very good one (dare we say, a "Privileged" one?) for the series' alumni. Let's take a look:
Ancient vampires, teleporting teenage dreamboats, aliens in love, and Mary, Queen of Scots: There is quite the collection of amazing characters coming to the CW this year, and not to brag or anything, but we've been hanging out with them all morning...on the intertubes.
The CW has released the official trailers for all of its new series in the 2013-14 season, giving audiences their first major taste of the shows that will shortly be duking it out for fandom supremacy and/or precious space on our overstuffed DVRs.
The upcoming shows include "Star-Crossed" (a forbidden love story with an extraterrestrial twist), "The 100" (a post-apocalypse survival drama featuring juvie delinquents as post-nuclear lab rats), "Reign" (a bodice-ripping tale of romance and politics in 16th century France), "The Tomorrow People" (a third-time's-the-charm reboot of the classic sci-fi series about mutant telekinetic teens and the thugs who hunt them), and "The Originals" (the long-awaited spin-off featuring some favorite bloodsuckers from "The Vampire Diaries".) And if you're having a hard time deciding which of those sounds most exciting...well, so are we, but maybe after another 20 viewings of these video promos a favorite will emerge. Possibly.
Tonight's the night! The third season of MTV's supernatural series "Teen Wolf" premieres at 10 p.m. ET. Shall we all howl at the moon in unison? (Just kidding...maybe...)
Of course, we're not the only ones enthused; the stars are too!
"We pick up tonight with her returning, and she sees Scott, and all those things come back to her," Crystal Reed (who plays Allison) told MTV News, previewing the season. "And she's made a pact with her father not to be involved with werewolf hunting anymore, because it's really not that good. Things start to happen in Beacon Hills, and she finds herself starting to question whether she can keep that commitment anymore, just because she's a person who can't just stand by when bad things are happening. She has to be involved, and she has to help even if that means lying and doing things undercover. So that's where we are with that."

The night has finally come to say "Thank You and Goodbye" to ABC Family’s longest-running original scripted series, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." What a better way to do it than by seeing our favorite characters pressed to make some life-changing decisions and dressed in the ever stylish cap and gown.
While we can only imagine how the outcome of tonight’s episode will bring us to tears, this will certainly not be a final goodbye for the actors of the hit series. We know what star Shailene Woodley is up to for the next few months (hello, every YA adaptation, ever), but what of her co-stars? Let's find out!
The "Girls" of HBO may be short one guy since breaking up with Christopher Abbott (a.k.a. Marnie's on-again-off-again boyfriend Charlie) in early April, but they're hardly waiting by the phone for him to call. Deadline has the scoop that a new hottie has been added to the cast of the series.
Meet Michael Zegen, who is no stranger to network watchers seeing as he plays mobster Bugsy Siegel on the drama "Boardwalk Empire."
ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars" doesn't return for its fourth season until June 11, but executive producer and writer I. Marlene King is already revealing Rosewood's secrets.
Marlene took to Twitter today to spill a major spoiler about the upcoming season debut—namely, that the identity of a certain royal rabble-rouser will be unveiled!
"The Queen Of Hearts from the Halloween train will b unmasked in the premiere. U will be shocked to discover Shims identity! #PLLSpoiler," she wrote.
Another hottie has entered the "Game of Thrones," and we couldn’t be more excited to see Ed Skrein spice up our Sunday nights. So, to celebrate, we’re naming him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Ed, and keep reading for more details about him!

Is "The Originals" about to get "Lost"? Not quite, but when we caught up with Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies, the stars of The CW's upcoming "Vampire Diaries" spin-off, we were curious as to how flashback heavy their new series would be. After all, its predecessor never met a period scene it didn't like, and with a millennium's worth of history at their disposal, there's no shortage of content to mine.
"We have a thousand years to draw on, so I hope so," Joseph said of his wishes for a flashback-filled narrative. "I even wondered at one point, when we were talking about the format of the show, whether it would follow a 'Lost' format—flashbacks every episode. I think that would be too expensive."
"But awesome," Daniel chimed in. "Can we do that? What an amazing idea. You never shared that with me. I'm sort of hurt that you're doing it in the middle of an interview."
"I have to keep something up my sleeve," Joseph replied with a wry smile. "I think I read it somewhere. It wasn't mine."
Whatever the case, you can bet there will be plenty of historical moments featuring the Original family, and if Joseph has his druthers, they may shiver your timbers.
