Dot-Marie Jones on her 'Glee' Emmy nomination on 'Good Day LA'Dot-Marie Jones's Coach Beiste is perhaps the only person in the 'Glee' universe who could go toe-to-toe with Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. For that fortitude and charisma, she was rewarded with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress.

Tuesday, 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on FOX) anchor Tony McEwing got a glimpse of how intimidating Jones can be when he mispronounced her character's name (it's pronounced like "beast," but McEwing said "beasty").

McEwing immediately apologized, and asked her to be gentle. "I'm always gentle," she said, "for a minute." He also noticed she had a broken foot. "I broke a bone because somebody wasn't gentle, Tony," said Jones.

Elizabeth Banks Let a Fan Think She Was Chelsea Handler (VIDEO)

Elizabeth Banks, 'Chelsea Lately'That was not a mirror trick on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). It turns out that Chelsea Handler and Elizabeth Banks really are two different people. They do, however, share many similar features, which could be why people get them mixed up.

Banks talked about an experience in Toronto where she went along with a fan who thought she was Handler. At first, she thought she was being recognized, but when the fan started talking about Handler's books and how much his girlfriend loved her, she realized it was Handler he was talking about.

"You can't ruin it, right?" Banks said. "You gotta let the guy go off and tell his girlfriend he met her favorite author."

Elizabeth Banks, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'When you see Elizabeth Banks, do you think of sororities? When Craig Ferguson found out she was in one on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), he defaulted to the 'SNL' skit with the sorority girls.

"Delta Delta Delta, can I help ya, help ya, help ya?" he asked, and he was actually right. In fact, her college experience was so great that she met her husband there, though she never did get to the story we really wanted to hear.

"I met him on the lawn of a frat house," is how the story began. But then she started talking about how he tried to play it all cool for the new girl but we're with Ferguson. This isn't the story we want.

'30 Rock' - 'Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter' Recap

(S04E17) "Thank you, Lemon, but my true present is that exquisite ensemble. You look like a prison weed dealer." - Jack to Liz, on her singles dodge ball outfit.

Jack, Jack, Jack! I guess there are worse things than having to choose between gorgeous Elizabeth Banks and beautiful Julianne Moore on your 51st birthday. I'm with Liz, though. Guys have it easy. They just get more distinguished and stately as they get older. Girls get flabby arms and wrinkles. " You're juggling two beautiful women while I have to pay to have kick balls whipped at me," says Liz. "This is gender inequity out the yang."

Elizabeth BanksElizabeth Banks is at it again.

Review: Modern Family - Great Expectations

Modern Family: Great Expectations
(S01E08) I don't know if enough credit is being given to the child actors on this show. All four are doing top-notch work... five if you count Lily. We already knew that Rico Rodriguez is amazing as Manny, but so little is being said about the Dunphy children. They haven't had as much screen time, yet, as really anyone else on the show, but who can deny how funny it is watching Ariel Winter as middle daughter Alex just torturing her dimmer siblings.

Sarah Hyland is channeling her best Mila Kunis in the role of eldest daughter Haley, who's just so tortured by how mean and horrible her family is. This week, she matched wits with her grandfather, only he'd been down this road so many times with his own daughter, and to a lesser extent his son, that he knows all the tricks by heart.

I was laughing so hard I had to rewind and watch the whole scene again when Haley got up from the table and stepped outside, only to find Jay out there already changing a light bulb.

Scrubs: My Cuz

Scrubs: My Cuz
(S08E16)
We're in the homestretch now, folks. Things are advancing in the world of Sacred Heart. And when characters who've been living more or less the same lives for eight years all of a sudden get new jobs, urges to return to old ones, or pangs to move away, you know a finale is a-comin'.

It's kind of too bad, since this season has been pretty satisfying for the most part. As Bill Lawrence and his crew have gotten down to basics, the show has gotten funnier, more personal, and more dramatic (when drama is called for). In fact, this has probably been the best season since season four, and it's good to see that the show still has hilarious episodes like this one still in them.
