TV's hottest stars were out in force at the TV Guide Magazine Hot List party, an event celebrating the biggest names and hottest shows on the small screen this year.
ET was on the red carpet, getting the inside scoop from the stars of today's most beloved shows on what to expect from coming episodes and why they love the shows they're on.
Red hot comedy goddess Anna Faris opened up about her new sitcom Mom, in which she plays a recovering alcoholic who is trying to get her life together while living with her mother, who is also a recovering addict.
"I'm so proud of [the show] and I'm so happy that people are enjoying it," Faris said. "It really is the best job of my life… I love doing it. I'm really proud of what we're doing and what we're saying with the project."
Dan Bucatinsky, who won an Emmy this year for his performance as James Novak on ABC's Scandal, said of the political thriller, "I'm thrilled to be part of the show. Scandal is having a great season."
"I just read the last episode of the ten that are airing before the winter, and it's unbelievable," Bucatinsky said. "Everyone is pushed to a limit you would never imagine happening… we read the scripts and we're like, 'this is like a season finale.'… that’s the trick. The trick is to think of every episode like a season finale, which is certainly working for us."
Clark Gregg and Ming-Na Wen from the hit ABC sci-fi superhero romp Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also walked the red carpet and talked about the love the show has been getting from the get-go.
"It's hard to introduce a new show," Gregg said. "You've got to introduce all these new characters. People knew Agent Coulson (Gregg's character on the show), but it takes a minute for a new show to find it's feet. And I feel like some of our best episodes are just now starting to pop, so the fact that so many people have been watching it and getting into it, it's an early surprise for us."
