Toby Keith, 'American Country Awards'It was a big night for Toby Keith at the 'American Country Awards' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX), as he took home honors not just for work he's done in the past year, but over the past decade. Co-hosts Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth were on hand to bestow upon Keith the Artist of the Decade Award, but Keith's good buddy Stephen Colbert couldn't miss out on the opportunity, sending kudos from his desk at 'The Colbert Report.'

It was only the second year of the fan-voted country music competition, but the stars weren't shy at showing up to the sophomore event. Fan support certainly helped former 'American Idol' contestants from the first season to now.

Brad Paisley, Eric Stonestreet, Carrie Underwood, 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards'Eric Stonestreet came onto the stage at 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC) with a mission. While these superstars of country music were busy celebrating their industry and receiving awards for their work this past year, they were ignoring the elephant in the room.

"I think you forgot to sing a song about what's weighing on everyone's mind in this room," Stonestreet told hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. "The divorce of Kim Kardashian and What's-His-Name."

Brad Paisley Performs for Four-Year-Old Fan on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 15th 2011 12:45PM
Brad Paisley performs 'Nobody's Fool' from the 'Cars 2' soundtrack on 'Good Morning America'With two songs on the 'Cars 2' soundtrack, Brad Paisley could be opening up a whole new, younger audience for himself. That was certainly the case Friday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), when Paisley performed his song 'Nobody's Fool' for a crowd that included a four-year-old lifelong fan.

Anchor Robin Roberts was interviewing Paisley, who was named CMA Entertainer of the Year and will co-host the awards with Carrie Underwood in November, and asked him what his favorite song to perform was. "Anything new that's a hit, anything that's brand new, because you haven't worn it out and you're still experimenting with it," said Paisley, noting he was learning in front of the fans.

Roberts pointed to the boy in the crowd, who was hoisted on his father's shoulders, and suggested Paisley use him as inspiration. The father said it was his son's fourth birthday, and that Paisley had been his favorite "ever since he was two" years old. "His whole life," Paisley said. It doesn't get too much more brand new than that.

'Idol Gives Back' Line-up Announced

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 2nd 2010 1:03PM
Idol Gives Back airs on April 21stI've never been a big fan of 'American Idol.' Mostly because the show rips up the FOX schedule to the point that viewers forget programs like 'Bones' and 'House' still exist on the network. And don't get me started on what it did to the 'Glee' schedule!

Still, the show does redeem itself once a year with 'Idol Gives Back,' which raises a good deal of money for various charities ($140 million to date). This year, the program will take up the entire FOX schedule on Wednesday, April 21st with performances by Alicia Keys, regular 'Gives Back' performer Carrie Underwood, The Black Eyed Peas, Annie Lennox, and Jeff Beck.

Donations raised from the show will benefit the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, Malaria No More, Save the Children, and the United Nations Foundation. Donations can be made via phone during the broadcast as well as online, through text messaging, and via the primitive mail service.

Oh, to make sure viewers don't think the show is too charitable, the week's voting results will be revealed and a finalist will go home during the show. Hey, they have a reputation to keep!

CBS Anchor Is Smitten with Carrie Underwood (VIDEO)

CBS Anchor Is Smitten with Carrie UnderwoodJeff Glor, co-host of 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS), seems to have a bit of a crush on singer Carrie Underwood. In fact, he makes a special request: can he sit next to her? "I know you want to sit next to Carrie..." says co-host Maggie Rodriguez. Mr. Glor plops down next to Carrie Underwood, and then they all discuss Underwood's new fiancee: hockey player Mike Fisher.

So we've already got Glor flirting with Underwood. But then, Rodriguez asks to see Underwood's engagement ring, and her fingers caress Underwood's hand for an... oddly long time. Are both CBS anchors flirting with Ms. Underwood? Judge for yourself.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Hooked' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 2nd 2010 9:24AM
Carrie Underwood and Josh Radnor in 'HIMYM' - 'Hooked'(S05E16) When I was out in LA for the press tour in January, I had the pleasure of watching the table read for this episode. This was the actual Monday-morning table read, not a show for the gathered critics; the writers were sitting by taking notes that would be used to make changes before shooting.

What struck me about the table read was that, despite the fact that it was the first draft and the cast hadn't fully gotten into how exactly they were going to play the script, the episode was funny. People were genuinely laughing, including the writers, who have lived with the script for some time; they weren't cackling in an effort to sell their funny lines. In fact, it was one of the funniest episodes of the season.

Watching the final version, I noticed that not a whole lot changed from that table read. And, even though I knew most of what was coming, I laughed as hard as I did when I was on the set a month and a half ago. If that's not the sign of a top-notch episode, I don't know what is.

How I Met Your Mother, Carrie UnderwoodIt takes some chutzpah to turn down Carrie Underwood, but Ted did the right thing on 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS).

Ted, listen to us: You absolutely did the right thing. You don't need to get snarled up in that vicious cycle of deceit and hook-ness. You're a man for walking out that door, and don't you forget it. (Cue Carly Simon's 'Let the River Run.')

Best TV of the '00s: Reality Series

More of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about a major category that came of age in the aughts: Reality shows.

While I would never call myself a reality TV junkie, it really bugs me when people make blanket statements like, "I hate reality TV," or, "Reality TV is the bane of my existence." The genre has grown so much in the past decade that it has become just like scripted television, in that there's good and there's bad. Even though we're splitting this up into two lists, "Reality," and "Trashy Reality," you won't see a single show that starts with, "Who Wants to Marry" on either list.

This list is dedicated not to the guilty pleasures, but to the shows that you wouldn't be embarrassed for your neighbors to know you watch: the classy reality, if you will. So without further ado, here is TV Squad's list of the best reality shows of the decade.

Carrie Underwood on Her Holiday Special, Working With Dolly Parton and Her Favorite Christmas Song

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Dec 7th 2009 10:00AM
Carrie UnderwoodIt's been a busy fall for multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood. In early November, the 'American Idol' winner released her third studio album, 'Play On,' and reprised her role as co-host of the CMA Awards, along side Brad Paisley. But she's also been in the Christmas spirit this season, as indicated by her two-hour variety special, 'Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special,' which airs tonight at 9PM on Fox.

The show will feature musical performances as well as skits, pairing Underwood with Dolly Parton, Kristin Chenoweth, 'Idol' season 7 winner David Cook and Christina Applegate.

Underwood recently spoke to reporters via a conference call about her special, plus her own thoughts on the holiday season. Here's what she had to say.

Carrie Underwood next in line for variety show revival attempt at FOX

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 13th 2009 1:05PM
Carrie UnderwoodOh man, that variety show format worked so well for Nick & Jessica! Remember what a smash sensation the Osbournes variety show was? Boy, Rosie O'Donnell sure rewrote the book on how to do a great variety special! The networks remember how great these attempts to revive the long dead TV format went, because they're at it again.

This time, FOX is dipping back into the American Idol well and plucking out plucky season four winner Carrie Underwood. They've scheduled Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special for a December 7 air-time. Luckily, since Underwood is doing just fine in her recording career, this isn't likely to be an attempt at a weekly series.

If the networks really do believe they can revive the variety format, this is a good way to do it. The holiday season seems to be the best time to lure American audiences into one-off specials and different kinds of programming. If the special does well, they can look for another one next year maybe. Or perhaps they'll have found something to do with all those former Idol contestants.

We're excited to watch both specials. But what we really want to know is: Whose will be better? Will J-Hud give another Oscar-winning performance? Or will Carrie steal her holiday thunder?
