'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

Meredith Vieira talks about her People cover story on 'Today'People magazine has an exclusive interview and photo shoot with Meredith Vieira this week covering her family life and decision to leave 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). Ann Curry asked her about it on Wednesday morning's show, complimenting her on the photos and asking Vieira about the discussion between her and her husband Richard in the interview about leaving the show.

"It was very much a family decision," said Vieira. "It had to do with the fact that, you know, right now we're both in good health and want to enjoy ourselves and have a little more flexibility in our lives. But it's still, it's one week from today, and my heart's breaking here, too."

Saved By The Bell cast reunites ... in People

People magYesterday we had a video that "explained" why Tiffani Thiessen was too busy to reunite with her Saved By The Bell costars on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. But the new People has the cast on the cover. Everyone except for Screech, who is busy with his tell-all book.

So what is Fallon going to think about this? He's been trying to get them together for months! It will be anti-climatic now.

Robin from How I Met Your Mother is pregnant???

by Debra McDuffee, posted Nov 26th 2008 5:02PM
Robin and Stella about to hug at Stella's and Ted's wedding

Man, I've finally sorted through all of my confusion (how embarrassing ... ) about how Lily and Marshall on How I Met Your Mother actually aren't pregnant at all; rather, actress Alyson Hannigan is expecting in real life with her husband, Alexis Denisof of Buffy and Angel fame.

And now, this news comes across my screen? How am I to believe that the writers of How I Met Your Mother actually thought it was a good idea for Lily and Robin to be pregnant at the same time? Nevertheless, it's true, because People Magazine is reporting that Robin is pregnant.

So what's the deal? Is it Barney's baby? Now there's a real twist, and it was all foreshadowed in "Not a Father's Day" with Robin and Barney being so sweet on the sock.... What's that, you say? Robin isn't pregnant? You say Cobie Smulders, the actress who plays Robin, is expecting? I'm sure I can figure this out ...

Yay! Crappy new reality show coming to ABC!

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 6th 2008 6:06PM
ABC logoSure, ABC can cut down the order on new scripted shows and say no to others, but when it comes to new reality shows, there's no limit, it seems.

ABC will debut a new reality show on January 5 titled True Beauty. The show will have 10 super hot people living in a mansion, each vying to become the true beauty of the group. Winner gets money and a place in the "100 Most Beautiful" issue of People.

That's right, people are now campaigning for a spot in the issue. Supposedly it will be about inner beauty as well as outer, but no one really believes that. And guess who is producing the show?

a.) Ryan Seacrest and Paris Hilton
b.) Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher
c.) Tim Gunn and Paula Adbul
d.) Oprah Winfrey and Carson Kressley
e.) Tom Brokaw and Peggy Noonan

Is the future of Mad Men in doubt?

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 21st 2008 11:35AM
Mad boysAs Bob wrote the other day, AMC has given the Emmy-award winning drama series Mad Men a pick up for a third season. No shock, but that future will be greatly dependent on re-signing Matthew Weiner to continue as the show's creator. Imagining Mad Men without Weiner at the helm is like Sterling Cooper without Don Draper as creative director!

However, while we're waiting to hear that Weiner's signed on the dotted line, the news today has me even more nervous. Jon Hamm and John Slattery have yet to renegotiate their contracts, which means the stars of Mad Men could be done with next week's season finale.

I don't believe that's going to happen, but Roger Friedman floated the possibility out there. He even suggests that Jon Hamm's star has risen so high, so fast that he could be the next George Clooney. Clooney, you'll remember, parlayed a few seasons of ER into a movie career (although there was more to it than that).

CBS to rule People magazine

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 2nd 2008 12:42PM
CBS to rule People magazineA CBS press release landed in my inbox today with this earth-shattering news: CBS's fall programming ads (20 total) will be featured exclusively in People's Sept. 22 issue.

From the release: "In a special arrangement with the magazine, CBS will be the exclusive broadcast advertiser in the issue, on stands Sept. 12." Of course, that's right before the launch of CBS's new fall lineup.

And it sounds like this might be a first. George Schweitzer, president of CBS Marketing Group says, "CBS has long valued its relationship with People, and we're elated that they worked with us to pull off this first-time strategy to be the sole broadcast advertiser in this well-timed issue." You know, whatever. Blah, blah, blah.

So why should we care? Honestly, I really don't. I just keep thinking, People? What, they couldn't come up with anything snappier? Like, I dunno ... maybe Entertainment Weekly? Vanity Fair? I guess with 43 million readers, they'll reach a lot of people in People.

People magazine catches the reality TV wave

by Jane Boursaw, posted Aug 27th 2008 8:38AM
Half Their Size Hits the Small ScreenIn a media crossover, People magazine is coming to TV screens. ABC has scheduled an hour-long special called Half Their Size: The People Magazine Weight Loss Challenge for Sept. 30 at 10 p.m.

The franchise began in People in 2002, and focuses on folks who need to shed more than a few pounds -- preferably, half their size. Obviously, the magazine stories have been a big hit, since anything about losing weight is always a big hit.

The show will focus on eight residents of Mississippi -- the nation's "heaviest" state -- for a nine-month period to see how their lives change through diet and exercise.

Bret Michaels makes People's Hottest Bachelors of 2008

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 18th 2008 9:01PM
Bret MichaelsRock of Love's Bret Michaels was named one of the hottest bachelors of 2008 by People magazine. But skanks like Daisy de la Hoya, Heather Chadwell, and Ambre Lake knew that already. Bret is joined by fellow television stars Mario Lopez, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick, Chace Crawford, and Brody Jenner.

He credits his awesome weave, always protected by a bandana or cowboy hat, as the major part of his sex appeal: "It creates this Tarzanesque, likable bad-boy image. It says, 'I am a wild child. I will take you on a Harley ride, then make passionate love to you. And should you be attacked by a lion or an idiot at a bar, I will protect you. "To put it simply, long hair works for me. It rocks." No, Bret. You rock.

So what do you think? Does big man Bret deserve a spot on this list? You can view the whole list here.

Gossip Girl cast among People's most beautiful

by Erin Martell, posted May 1st 2008 11:01AM

Ed WestwickGossip Girl is getting a lot of exposure these days. A week after the OMFG scandal, the cast of Gossip Girl has made People magazine's list of the most beautiful people of 2008. No argument here. Eye candy is one of the main reasons why I love the show. My only complaint is that Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford were left out. Rufus Humphrey and Lily van der Woodsen are currently two of the hottest parents on TV.

Other familiar TV faces made the list, including: Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria Parker and Marcia Cross, Sarah Silverman, Ugly Betty executive producer Salma Hayek, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate, Dancing With The Stars' Carrie Ann Inaba and Jason Taylor, Vanessa Hudgens, Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, and Minka Kelly from Friday Night Lights.

Dr. Phil says Lynne Spears is a great mother. No, really!

by Richard Keller, posted Dec 24th 2007 5:01PM

Dr. Phil says Lynne Spears is a dedicated mother...in a parallel universe!Dr. Phil McGraw has lost all credibility in my eyes. Not that he had a lot of credibility in my eyes to begin with, mind you -- I have never been a fan of his down-home, pop psychology. However, his latest statements really put the capper on the fact that he doesn't seem to know what he's talking about.

During a holiday party in Beverly Hills this past weekend, Dr. Phil told People magazine that Lynne Spears, mother to Britney and recently pregnant, 16-year-old Jamie Lynn, is a "great and dedicated mother". He admits that things aren't looking up for her right now (ya think?), but McGraw adds that the Spears matriarch has her feet firmly on the ground and that she is turning to her faith for strength in this situation. In fact, Lynne told her friend Dr. Phil that they are turning to prayer to get past this all. No offense, but she must be praying nearly 24 hours a day.

thirtysomething actresses talk about being fiftysomething

by Meredith O'Brien, posted Jun 5th 2007 8:06AM

thirtysomething actressesDespite the pleadings of many fans, DVDs of the 20-year-old Emmy-winning dramatic series thirtysomething have yet to be (officially) released.

While fans (like yours truly) patiently wait for thirtysomething DVDs to go on sale, the four actresses who starred in the yuppie-focused show spoke with People magazine about being in their 50s, about cosmetic surgery, about the fact that they're spokeswomen for an arthritis prevention campaign (Arthritis? It has been a long time!) and about their love lives.

Is it better for Blake that he didn't win Idol?

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted May 28th 2007 3:03PM
Blake LewisI was never a Blake fan, but as the end of American Idol season six drew near, I came to admire his attitude even more than his singing or beatboxing skills. I like that Blake never talked back to the judges in a snotty, defensive manner. I like that he took his lumps with a smile and a shrug. I like that he didn't cry "foul" when forced to sing the generic "This Is My Now."

In the age of reality TV where everyone wants to win at any cost, it was nice to witness a guy who actually seemed to be enjoying the experience itself.

In a conference call with reporters, Blake said, "I honestly didn't care one bit [about] winning or losing, because I call myself a winner just by getting into the top 10."

Idol's famous and Idol's lamest

by JJ Hawkins, posted Apr 30th 2007 2:22PM

Jessica Sierra's MugshotIt's a good time to be Carrie Underwood and Bucky Covington.

Carrie was recently voted to People Magazine's "100 Most Beautiful People" list.

Of course, Drew Barrymore is at the top of this list and for me she kind of waivers between beautiful and beat-up looking from one movie to the next. Nonetheless, I'm pretty sure this should still be considered a good thing for Carrie.

If that wasn't enough, her song "Wasted" is currently number one on the country singles chart. Not bad from a girl from little old Checotah, OK.
