First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.
To break the tension, Demi Lovato was on hand with her new single 'Skyscraper.' While she showed a lot of great stage presence and confidence, her vocals seemed to betray her nervousness a little bit at times. All in all, though, she gave a very commanding performance.
This is Spoilers Anonymous, a weekly column here at TV Squad where we supply you with the dirt on some of the more popular shows on the air. We'll never put spoilers up here on the main page in order to help the reformed stay unspoiled. If you have anything to add to the group, feel free to step up and let yourself be heard, either with our tips form or by emailing us at tvsquad at gmail dot com, or call and leave a message at (775) 640-8479. Your anonymity is guaranteed, if you wish to remain as such.
This week we have spoilers for: 'Bones,' 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'Castle,' 'Chuck,' 'Desperate Housewives,' 'Eureka,' 'Fringe,' 'Glee,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'NCIS,' 'Private Practice,' 'Psych,' 'Smallville,' 'Supernatural,' and 'The Big Bang Theory.'
Hopefully, Demi Lovato doesn't head down that road. It doesn't seem likely, since she's been acting for years (she was in the cast of 'Barney & Friends' with Selina Gomez). Plus, she already had a taste of dramatic acting with a role in FOX's 'Prison Break' back in 2006.
With that accumulated experience, her guest stint as a schizophrenic patient on an upcoming May episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' should work out. Look for ratings to skyrocket as tweens ask their parents to stay up late on a school night to watch (and ask why everyone is having sex with everyone else at Seattle Grace).
More casting news after the jump.
Last night, we learned the Top Ten who'd be going on the 'American Idol' tour this summer. Out of all the contestants who made it into the Top 24, I'm ok with who's left. There are really only a handful of standouts for me -- Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche, and Siobhan Magnus -- but all of the contestants have their moments.
What I love about this season is there's such a diverse group of singers, each with their own fan base. We've got Crystal's bluesy-folksy vocals, Katie Stevens' teen pop, Michael Lynche's soulful blues, Casey James' guitar rock, Aaron Kelly's mad vocals (I'm convinced he can sing anything well), Tim Urban's Zac Efron vibe, and Siobhan's edgy pop-rock. Lee DeWyze, Didi Benami, and Andrew Garcia don't really pop out at me, but there's still time.
Did the right person go home last night? Let's talk about it after the jump.
A Porsche? Nah, got that already.
A kiss from Nick Jonas? Been there.
A spot on Disney Channel's 'New Year's Eve Star Showdown' lineup? Ding, ding, ding!
Beginning this Friday, Nov. 27, the Disney stars will duke it out for a spot on the Disney Channel's Dec. 31 evening lineup, the Hollywood Reporter confirms. Fans will be able to vote for their fave episodes and music videos at DisneyChannel.com. The winning shows will run on New Year's Eve from 6PM to 12:30AM, while songs from the 10 favorite music videos will play on Radio Disney, starting at 12PM on Jan. 1.
As for JONAS, it's already been yanked from Saturdays where, despite an impressive debut, it got slammed in its second outing by iCarly. So now, it's joining the Disney Sunday lineup, where it can nestle snugly behind Hannah Montana and Sonny With a Chance. This does create a powerhouse Sunday night for the network, while protecting the two newer shows with the power of Miley Cyrus.
I'll admit that I skipped the performance in favor of Adam Lambert. His performance on American Idol was more interesting than five minutes of a dance I saw before. In the recap, we learned that last night Melissa ripped her dress, which is one of the reasons why she was thrown off.
Admit it ... you're obsessed with the Jonas Brothers (known in the tween world as the Jo Bros) and Miley Cyrus (known in the tween world as -- Miley Cyrus). You wake up in Hannah Montana pajamas, you eat your cereal with your Miley Cyrus spoon, and you make sure you have safe sex with your Jo Bros' IUD. But, you need more to satisfy your craving for Disneyfied bubblegum rock and pop. Thing is, you fear that you have exhausted all of your resources.
Have some faith, slightly creepy one. Fact of the matter is the Disney Channel is watching your back. Starting at 5:30 pm tonight, the network will be premiering the Jonas Brothers' newest video, as well as Miley's first video from her new Hannah Montana movie. If that weren't enough to sustain you, Disney will be broadcasting the Kids Inaugural: We Are the Future concert, which will feature not only the Jo Bros and Miley, but Demi Lovato and Bow Wow (no longer 'Little').
See? Everything will be okay. Now you can get dressed in your High School Musical pants suit and head out to your job as CEO of a multi-billion dollar company.

I'm just full of Disney news (or full of something) this week, aren't I? On Monday I asked the question of what happened to the Playhouse Disney schedule. This time around I'm going to talk about the entire Disney Channel. Not just the cable network, but the website as well. For both are tops in their respective outlets.
Well, tops when it comes to kids programming -- an area of entertainment that continues to grow on a daily basis. For 2008, Disney Channel was top of the heap in a number of areas. Not only was primetime programming number one for viewers ages 6-14, but the premiere of the network's newest musical, Camp Rock (which introduced us to Demi Lovato), became cable's top entertainment broadcast of the year. Cable's top animated debut also went to Disney Channel with the premiere of Phineas and Ferb.
But about 10 minutes into the new Cheetah Girls: One World movie the other night, my daughter looked at me and said, "I was really hoping these Cheetah Girls movies would get better." Yeah, me, too.
I actually liked the first two movies, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. The second, directed by High School Musical alum Kenny Ortega, was a downright cute tale about the Girls' escapades in Spain.
