David Hasselhoff has used to have a TV show, but after some trials and tribulations, he now he has a Vegas show. Lest you think it's a step backwards, the Hoff told 'Access Hollywood Live,' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that his live show is "Just one big party, Hoff style" that combines his stage performances like 'Jekyll and Hyde' and 'Chicago' with his TV shows 'Baywatch' and 'Knight Rider.'

The Hoff's goal is to give bachelorettes a show they'll never remember. When Billy and Kit joked that his audience would like to be touched by him, he said, "We're in the audience, man, most of the show ... The bachelorettes are going to get discounted at the door." The rest of us will have to pay full-price. See you there?

David HasselhoffIt looks like soap opera fans are about to get another blast from the past.

On the heels of Juliane Moore's cameo as Frannie Hughes on 'As the World Turns' and news that Charles Shaughnessy will be reprising his character, Shane Donovan, on 'Days of Our Lives,' EW.com is reporting that 'Knight Rider' himself, David Hasselhoff, is returning to 'The Young and the Restless' to play Dr. Snapper Foster.

From 1975-1982, David Hasselhoff was the epitome of a soap leading man on 'The Young and the Restless.' Gorgeous, hunky and hot, he wooed the ladies and was brave and committed to saving lives as a Genoa City medical man. More importantly, the character of Snapper was an integral part of the Foster family. The Fosters were the folks from the wrong side of the tracks, hard-working and self-reliant.

America's Got Talent
(S04E26) This is it, people. The time has come to name the winner of America's Got Talent, the world's biggest talent search. The two-hour (!) final results bash included performances from Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle, The X Factor's Leona Lewis, Thelma Houston, Cirque du Soleil, Rascal Flatts, and Shakira. Sadly, none of the previous AGT winners performed.

Based on the TV Squad poll I've included in my review of the Top 10 performance show, 35.1% of the voters, including myself, said Barbara Padilla would win. Kevin Skinner received 22.2% of your votes, while Recycled Percussion placed third in our poll with 19.4%. The other contestants all got under 7% of your votes. (Note that these results were accurate at the beginning of the results show.)

Did the TV Squad poll results match reality? Official results coming up!

If you haven't watched the finale yet and do not want to be spoiled as to who won the competition, it's time to click elsewhere now!
