EXCLUSIVE 'Virgin Diaries' Sneak Peek: Meet 35-Year-Old Virgin Carey (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 1st 2011 3:30PM
Did you catch that promo for TLC's 'Virgin Diaries'? The one with the virgin couple awkwardly sucking face at the altar and on the dance floor on their wedding day? Well there's more where that came from.

In their new one-hour special 'Virgin Diaries' (premieres Sun., Dec. 4, 9PM ET), TLC promises to shed light on a wide range of sexually inexperienced adults who are all still virgins for a multitude of reasons, from religion to factors beyond their control.

The show has received a lot of press -- and a lot of controversy, too. Many people believe that this special aims to mock a lifestyle that millions of people have chosen, but TLC maintains that it's celebrating virgins. "Losing one's virginity is a big life decision," TLC's west coast vice president of production, Timothy Kuryak, told ABCNews.com. "It seemed like one of those seminal life moments that's interesting to follow for TLC." He then added: "We're not trying to make light of this or treat it in a sort of trivial way. We want to document these peoples' stories and why they make this decision."

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at Carey, a 35-year-old bachelor who freely admits that he's "not a virgin entirely by choice," as he consults his friends about how to score on his upcoming date. Their advice: First impressions matter.

Chord Overstreet GleeWelcome back, Trouty Mouth.

Chord Overstreet makes his triumphant return to 'Glee' (Tues., Dec. 13, 8PM ET on Fox) after a sudden departure.

News of Overstreet's exit broke this summer after the actor wasn't offered a series regular gig on the teen musical show. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy said Overstreet was welcome to return as a recurring guest star, but Overstreet decided to pursue his music and other acting gigs. Since leaving 'Glee' he guest starred on ABC's 'The Middle.' However, he's taken up the recurring offer and his character Sam Evans will return to help New Directions perform at Sectionals.

"We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back," Murphy said in a statement in October. "So here's an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks -- Sam is coming back to McKinley, and just in time for sectionals!"

In preview photos below, Overstreet's character is performing for the glee club. Even his trusty guitar is back.

New 'Dallas' Trailer: The Next Generation of Ewings Feud Over Oil (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 1st 2011 1:45PM
TNT's next-generation reboot of the wildly popular '80s drama 'Dallas' is due out next summer, but here's a new first-look trailer at the Ewing clan back in action.

The new version of the show has plenty of continuity from the old 'Dallas,' as it still features Larry Hagman as J.R. and Patrick Duffy as Bobby, but it adds the next generation of Ewings, played by Jesse Metcalfe and Josh Henderson, to the mix.

And guess what ... the Ewing family is still drilling for oil in Texas and feuding with each other about how far they're willing to go in pursuit of staying rich. In the trailer, Bobby makes it pretty clear that he doesn't want the kids making the same mistakes he and J.R. made, but greed has a way of making things complicated for the Ewings.

Check out the new trailer after the jump.

Michael Buble, Ed Helms Christmas VideoWhat's better than a digital short featuring the very charming Michael Bublé? A digital short featuring Bublé and the musically inclined star of NBC's 'The Office,' Ed Helms!

Helms and Bublé teamed up to do three digital shorts for NBC's 'A Michael Bublé Christmas' (Tues., Dec. 6, 8PM ET), but you won't see this one during the actual show. Yep, it's a shocking online exclusive. In the short, Helms and Bublé play hosts of a live 1974 Christmas special that goes horribly wrong.

Why did we say shocking? Well, the sweater on Helms' character does a little more than festively twinkle. Check out the video below.

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 1st 2011 10:00AM
'Supernatural' gets 'Mad'Apologies for the semi-misleading headline, 'Supernatural' fans -- sadly the show is not taking a page out of the 'Fringe' playbook and tackling a psychedelic animated episode; at least, not as far as we know. (Although there's always the anime series.)

But for those of you who take your Winchesters in 3D, 2D and heck, any way you can get them, AOL TV has an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming 'MAD' episode, featuring Sam and Dean facing one of their most frightening foes yet: a teenage girl celebrating her Super(natural) Sweet Sixteen.

The parody airs next week (Mon., Dec. 5 at 8.30PM ET on Cartoon Network), but you can get a first look at the hilarious skit after the jump. Prepare to learn more than you ever wanted to know about Dean's taste in shoes ...

Jon Hamm Makes Robot Noises on 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 30th 2011 5:30PM
If the 'Mad Men' extended hiatus has had one upside, it's that it's allowed Jon Hamm the freedom to do a bunch of guest-spots in other shows and movies, particularly ones that showcase his comedic chops. There was his epically weird sex-scene with Kristen Wiig in 'Bridesmaids,' his 'SNL' hosting gig, and now a guest-spot on the David Cross-starring IFC comedy 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.'

In this promo clip released by IFC in advance of the show's Season 2 premiere (Fri., Jan. 6 at 10:30PM ET on IFC), Hamm, who plays the butler to Todd's British boss Dave, makes a series of "dumb robot" noises as part of a scheme to confuse Will Arnett's character Brent Wilts. Check out Hamm trying to sound like a dial-up modem after the jump.

The Kardashians Make Barbara Walters' 'Most Fascinating People of 2011'

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 30th 2011 12:40PM
the kardashians It's that time of the year again. Seasonal snow is on its way and the holiday lights are making their big debut, but most importantly, it's time for Barbara Walters to unveil her annual 10 Most Fascinating People list.

And it looks like the first family of reality TV -- the Kardashians -- made the cut. The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' stars Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and sisters Kourtney and Khloe all made Walters' list.

After raking in a reported $65 million in 2010, launching a new clothing line for Sears, airing a four-hour wedding special, having one of the most talked about divorce scandals of the year and making headlines on a daily basis, it looks like the Kardashians not only fascinate Walters, but they also fascinate the public.

The Kardashians will have a bit of reality TV company. Music mogul and 'The X Factor' judge Simon Cowell made the list, as well as businessman -- and 'The Apprentice' star -- Donald Trump.

'Misfits' Season 3 Exclusive: Cast Talks Coming to America

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 29th 2011 4:00PM
misfits season 3 hulu exclusive Rejoice, 'Misfits' fans! As previously reported, the quirky, foul-mouthed UK teen dramedy is coming back to America exclusively on Hulu for Season 3.

At the end of Season 2, our favorite teen anti-heros were left powerless, but it definitely won't stay that way for long. Kelly (Lauren Socha), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and Simon (Iwan Rheon) have all-new powers, which means that there will be some serious adjusting. And new blood.

After the departure of fan-favorite Nathan (Robert Sheehan), we wondered who could possible step in and fill out that advantageous orange jumpsuit. Enter Rudy, played by actor Joe Gilgun. Think of him as one part Nathan and one part painfully shy Simon circa Season 1, and we have to admit, he fits in with the 'Misfits' quite well.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, the young cast talks about 'Misfits' coming to America, and how they hope the US will embrace the show just as much as the UK has done.

EXCLUSIVE 'What Not to Wear' Preview: Meet Tron's Hooker (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 29th 2011 1:00PM
As much as 'What Not to Wear' makes me cringe sometimes, hosts and makeover gurus Stacy London and Clinton Kelly are always there to lighten the mood with pure, unadulterated snark. Like saying someone's outfit is better suited for a hooker from 'Tron.'

They're not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, of course, but sometimes the ugly truth is the only way to get through to people. This is one of those times.

They've got some brand new episodes (premiering Tues., Nov. 29, 9PM ET on TLC) and their first client back is a tough nut to crack. And by nut, I'm implying that she's a little crazy ... but delightfully so. Maybe it's a work side effect?

We've got an exclusive introduction to Jodi, a 50-year-old belly-dancing psych ward nurse. Yep, you read that right, and her wardrobe is just as confused. Here, Clinton and Stacy try to show her the light about why this reflective, futuristic ensemble -- which she describes as her "edgy, hip-hop, downtown nightclub look" -- should be a thing of the past.

Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood'Tori & Dean' are back for a sixth season (premieres Tues., Nov. 29, 10PM ET on Oxygen), and their sweet Hollywood home is busy as ever, with a new business and baby #3 on the way.

The previews show Tori doing her best to hide her baby bump from the press -- including an awesome scene of her writhing around on the closet floor, trying to get her Spanx on -- while Dean is trying his hand in the culinary arts. (I can't wait for the inevitable episode where Tori compares sharp knives and mandolines to racing motorcycles, Dean's last swiftly-nixed hobby.)

In our exclusive clip from this season, little Liam is acting out and playing rough with mama Tori in the middle of a photo shoot (fun takeaway: even Tori's cropped 'do is all extensions!), forcing Tori to finally admit that her good cop role to daddy Dean's bad cop can't last forever.

Watch and tell us: Do you think Tori is a better mom than her mom was?
