The Show Girl Talks 'Lost,' 'Bizarre Foods' & New Series 'Gravity' (VIDEO)

Bizarre Foods with Andrew ZimmernWe're getting closer and closer to the end of 'Lost,' and things are finally starting to come together. Of course, when I visited the set in Hawaii before the season premiere, I had no clue what he was talking about, but now Jorge Garcia insight about the end gives me chills.

I also talk to 'Bizarre Foods' host -- and regular on 'The Soup' -- Andrew Zimmern about what he's got in store for Joel McHale to mock this season, and I get the dish on Starz' latest series 'Gravity' from stars Ivan Sergei and Krysten Ritter.

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 9th 2010 9:00AM
Very few TV freebies could get me to devote a chunk of my weekly talk time to them ... but a personalized Maggie Furlong Adventure Doll? You have to see her in action to believe it. (Thanks CMT's Adventure Country!)

I also talk with 'Romantically Challenged' star Alyssa Milano about which fellow Twitter-happy ABC star she wants as her TV ex-husband on the new show. Then I hit the set of 'Brothers & Sisters' during their big flashback episode to catch up with the show's matriarch, Sally Field. Her comments on the young Walkers, their secrets and her own memories of the '80s will crack you up.

The Show Girl On 'Future Food,' 'United States of Tara' & 'Lost' Geeks (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 26th 2010 9:00AM
Future FoodI'm addicted to cooking shows, but my new fave is so much more than just food and kitchen skills -- 'Future Food' is all about changing the way we approach eating through molecular gastronomy. It's smart, it's fun, it's educational and, yes, it'll make your stomach growl. What more can you ask for?

This week, I also dive a little deeper into two other must-watch shows with scoop on new alters for 'United States of Tara''s second season, straight from star Toni Collette, and a celebrity spewing about why she loves 'Lost' almost as much as I do.

Alex O'LoughlinYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

Alex O'Loughlin fans have been begging to get him a new role on TV -- and now, he's booked it, Danno. I've got O'Loughlin's thoughts on taking the lead in the 'Hawaii 5-0' remake. Then I've got his 'Back-up Plan' costar Jennifer Lopez dishing about her stint on 'How I Met Your Mother' and going all Madonna on 'Glee.'

Plus, don't miss a hilarious reveal from no-nonsense 'No Reservations' host Anthony Bourdain, and the scoop on 'The Ricky Gervais Show' from funnyman Stephen Merchant.

RuPaul's Drag RaceYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I talk to the Queen of the Internet, Cindy Margolis, and the Queen of ... well, queens, RuPaul. Both ladies are working it on reality TV -- the '90s pinup on dating show 'Seducing Cindy,' and the '90s 'Supermodel' songstress on season 2 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' Amazing.

To bring the show back to reality a bit, I also dig in to 'Lost.' (Hey -- I didn't say which reality.) If you haven't heard, we've got a brand spankin' new weekly show dedicated to the addictive, obsessive show I call my #1 favorite. And we're taking fan questions starting ... now.

Katee SackhoffYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I have a preview of ABC's new legal dramedy 'The Deep End' -- which is sort of like 'Grey's Anatomy' at a law firn -- straight from stars Billy Zane and Tina Majorino. I also get funny lady Aisha Tyler to beg another 'Arrested Development' alum (they already have two!) to come on her new animated comedy 'Archer.'

Then there's Katee Sackhoff. She's officially my new favorite actress, and now she's on '24,' but her answer to my sort of controversial 'Nip/Tuck' question -- why did they get all soap opera-y and keep your character but replace you with Rose McGowan? -- is equal parts lovely and hilarious.

Regina KingYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

In honor of 'Southland''s glorious return to our TVs (Tue., 10PM ET on TNT), I got star Regina King's take on whether or not her character, Det. Lydia Adams, should hook up with Ben McKenzie's character, Det. Ben Sherman. The words "cutie" and "animalistic" are part of her answer ... tell me you're not curious.

I also have some behind-the-scenes fun with 'Human Target' star Mark Valley, and share a few of my Golden Globe predictions. (Yay, 'Modern Family'! Sorry 'Cougar Town.')

Nurse JackieHappy New Year!!

2009 was an amazing year for TV fans -- and definitely a wonderful year to be The Show Girl -- but 2010 is looking like it might just top it.

Looking back at the best TV this past year, you can't forget our favorite new pill-popping medical professional (sorry 'House'!), a hilarious 'Modern Family' and the most lovable high school Glee club ever.

But 2010 promises us an 'UneXpected' twist on life, more of Mr. Nice Spy 'Chuck,' 'Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham's big return to primetime and (sniff! sniff!) the end of 'Lost.' Will you be watching? I know I will ... after all, it is my job.

And yes, it's a crazy fun job, but I couldn't do it without you guys. So if you want more TV scoop about your favorite shows, just email me your questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com. And, as always, happy TV watching!

Gordon RamsayYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

While everyone else is worried about being on Santa's "good" list this holiday season, I'm much more interested in the bad boys of TV. This week, I've got fun stuff from three of the baddest, starting with 'Californication' star David Duchovny, who dishes about the show's season finale (Sun., Dec. 13, 10PM ET on Showtime) and makes fun of Twitter.

I also have the scoop on Gordon Ramsay new show 'Cookalong Live' (Tues., Dec. 15, 9PM ET on Fox), and talk a little trash with the champ of TLC's latest reality show 'BBQ Pitmasters.'

Michael Emerson, 'Lost'You've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I dive back into 'Lost,' hitting around some possible endings and interesting ideas with star Michael Emerson, and sharing a few final season theories of my own.

I also chat with the stars of Syfy's 'Alice' about other possible childrens' story adaptations (a sexy 'Blues Clues,' anyone?), and get personal with 'Private Practice' star Taye Diggs -- who, strangely enough, sounds an awful lot like me -- about his first child and his stint on BFF Jay Harrington's show 'Better Off Ted' (premieres Tues., Dec. 8, 9:30PM ET on ABC).

This week, I sit down and get personal with 'The Mentalist' star Simon Baker in a very special interview, even getting him to answer a fan question from the live audience, and open up about being a dad.

And, for you 'Fringe' fans out there, I have scoop straight from Joshua Jackson on everyone's favorite bald man of mystery, The Observer. (Don't you want to know why he puts Tobasco on everything?) I also get 'Southland' star Ben McKenzie to promise he'll finally get on Twitter ... if fans of his do one little thing.

Chi McBride, Human TargetYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week's episode feels like a full-blown party, kicking off with a rock 'n' roll theme song for Fox's midseason show 'Human Target,' performed live with serious attitude by the show's star, Chi McBride. Chi also talks about getting out from behind the desk and getting in on the action for this DC Comics adaptation.

I also stop by the 'Yo Gabba Gabba!' set to chat with DJ Lance Rock, watch a super-secret season 3 musical guest perform and, yes, play with some new toys. (What kid won't want a 'YGG!' boombox for the holidays?) Then I've got a sneak peek at 'The Wanda Sykes Show,' straight from Wanda herself. Bar's open, people!
