Chuck and Blair['Gossip Girl' - 'Memoirs of an Invisible Dan']

Lonely Boy definitely lived up to his nickname this week; Dan may be on the cusp of literary greatness, but with friends and family feeling stung by their fictional portrayals, our budding Hemingway found himself alone in a room full of people, and his Amazon ranking certainly won't make waffles with him in the morning.

This week's 'Gossip Girl' was firing on all scandalous cylinders, elevating itself above guilty pleasure viewing to recapture some of the sparkle of its glory days. The whole gang got together, which always guarantees fireworks, and there were moments to tease both the loyal Chair and the Dair fans. Serena's selfishness was back with a vengeance, and Ivy got herself a new ally -- or did she?

Join us after the jump for our five favorite moments from this week's episode.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 5: Ricki's Roger Rabbit Flops, J.R. Shines

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 17th 2011 11:20PM
Ricki Lake & Derek go '80sIt was '80s night on 'Dancing With the Stars' this week and that meant big hair, big shoulder pads, acid brights, a guest performance by The Bangles and ... Roger Rabbit?

The seemingly unstoppable Ricki Lake didn't look so smooth doing the Roger Rabbit this week, even after some encouragement from surprise guest, filmmaker John Waters, who gave Ricki her big break in 1988's 'Hairspray.'

Unfortunately, Ricki just couldn't find the beat this week, and that definitely hurt her scores. After scoring two 10s last week for her thrilling 'Psycho' tango and being atop the leaderboard for three weeks in a row, Ricki dropped the ball this week, only scoring a 24 and losing her top spot to J.R. Martinez.

Pan Am RatingsOne of the most anticipated new fall shows has quickly become one of the lowest rated. What happened to 'Pan Am'?

'Boardwalk Empire' Gangster Index, Week 4: Where Have You Gone, Commodore?

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 17th 2011 1:30PM
Just when we were starting to get a read on the complex political landscape developing on Season Two of 'Boardwalk Empire,' a massive eruption has shifted everything around ... again. With the Commodore, Nucky Thompson's chief nemesis, incapacitated by a stroke, the anti-Nucky conspirators suddenly find themselves without a leader, and panicked by the thought that betraying Atlantic City's treasurer may be the last mistake they'll make on this Earth.

Nucky's stock, meanwhile, is back on the rise, as he continues to find creative ways to quickly re-occupy the power vacuum we saw forming after his arrest. And as both Thompson and Darmody set their sites on extending their bootlegging operation into Philadelphia, a proxy war looms on the horizon.

To keep track of the deals, deception and death, AOL TV is maintaining the 'Boardwalk Empire' gangster index, a guide to who's up and who's down among HBO's organized criminals.

Check out the index to find out how your favorite liquor-slinging sociopath fared in Episode Four, 'What Does the Bee Do?'

'The Walking Dead' Season 2 Premiere Recap

by Mike Ryan, posted Oct 17th 2011 11:30AM
The Walking Dead Season 2 Premiere RecapI like 'The Walking Dead' again. This comes after not liking 'The Walking Dead' at the end of last season (which I harped on way too much over at Vanity Fair last season) after really liking 'The Walking Dead' when it premiered. But, you see, I still feel a bit burned from last season's debacle. What started as a nuanced and (somewhat) realistic approach to an outbreak that left most of the population of Earth as non-sentient monsters, quickly deteriorated into absolute nonsense. Look, say what you will about 'Lost,' but at least its plot point about a mysterious bunker played out over the course of more than an entire season. 'The Walking Dead' decided to pull off its version of The Hatch (no joke, I really feel the Center for Disease Control was a ripoff of The Hatch -- way more on that right here) – from its discovery to its destruction – in two episodes. It's as if the same virus from the plot of 'The Walking Dead' somehow infected the show itself. (And, as we know, that virus claimed some causalities.) Regardless, whatever the problems were at the end of the last season ... I'm, cautiously, giving the second season another chance. And after watching last night's episode ... I'm, cautiously, optimistic.

'The Good Wife' Season 3, Episode 4 Recap

The Good Wife Season 3, Episode 4 Recap['The Good Wife' - 'Feeding the Rat']

I'm waiting to be wowed.

Yes, Season 3 is just beginning to set things up, but after such a thrilling Season 2, it's very easy to let impatience take over.

Starting the episode with the crime and having viewers see the accused was innocent was a nice twist. One person "saw" the crime and said the real witness did it? Yeah, OK. Can you get more blatantly obvious? If there's one thing 'The Good Wife' audience has proven time and time again it's that they're smart. To me, this was a sloppy story. It brought the entire episode down.

'Dexter' Season 6, Episode 3 Recap: 'Smokey and the Bandit' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 16th 2011 11:15PM
Season Six of 'Dexter' has already shown it has two intriguing, disturbing and creepy "Big Bads" working for it in Travis and the Professor. They're murdering people in bizarre ritualistic ways and their storyline was the most compelling part of this episode, yet frustratingly, Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks were only given a few minutes of screen-time. Using an abandoned temple as an evil lair, they orchestrated a grotesque final scene that made the Headless Horseman look quaint, sending a chopped-up, half-murder-victim, half-mannequin riding on two horses through a Miami block party.

Still, at this point it's unclear exactly what specific kind of twisted cult ideology is driving Travis and Professor Gellar's murderous weirdness. It feels like we should know by now, but I guess we're still in the weird ritualistic storytelling phase of this season's plot set-up. It's something about repentance and purity, but that lack of info is starting to walk a dangerous line between suspenseful and feeling like it's overdue. As Travis put it, "I don't believe what you are saying."

'Nikita' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 15th 2011 12:20PM
Kelly and Alex['Nikita' - 'Partners']

I love it when a plan comes together, and this season of 'Nikita' seems to be laying out its puzzle pieces so confidently that it's a pleasure to watch the bigger picture falling into place with such precision.

As if Owen working for Gogol wasn't enough of a bombshell in 2.02, this week's installment deftly painted Ari Tasarov and his company into a much larger canvas, one involving Kelly, Nikita, Alex and even Zetrov itself.

Perhaps wiser minds than mine predicted that Ari and Sergei Semak were in cahoots, or that Ari was behind Kelly's escape, but few could've foreseen how intimately intertwined the storylines would become, or how satisfying it was to see such big moves being made so early in the season.

'Up All Night' jumped from 2.4 rating to a 3.5 rating.
