Celine Dion Shows Off Her Twins on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

Celine Dion and her twin boys on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'After a difficult road trying to conceive, Celine Dion had twin boys in October. In a clip on Monday's 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Dion showed off her boys, Eddy and Nelson, in footage taken from her time at home with them.

Winfrey introduced the segment, which showed Dion singing to the boys, tending to them in their rockers, and talking to them about her appearance on Winfrey's show, where she hoped to be better dressed. The whole family signed off the video together, surrounded by white pillows. "We're going to say buh-bye," said Dion. "It's going to be nap time."

Winfrey pointed out that one of the boys waved as the camera pulled back. When they took a second look, the boy did appear to be waving goodbye. Or he could also have been saying, "Please get these cameras out of my house during nap time."

Tonight, 'NCIS' was back to a fairly complex, interesting case that dominated the story telling. It could have used more suspects, but unlike other eps this season, this one stuck closely to the plot.

There were no personal flashbacks or deep introspection ... just Abby doing her forensic thing, Ducky waxing eloquently about the history of suicide bombings, Vance and Gibbs butting heads, Ziva wondering about how long the NCIS team will stick together, and McGee and DiNozzo jeopardizing a protection detail and nearly winding up drummed out of NCIS entirely.

Piers Morgan Can't Get Barbara Walters to Talk About Her Love Life (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Feb 3rd 2011 1:00AM
Barbara Walters has been married three times and has dated famous and powerful men. On 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), Morgan tried to get the 81-year-old to open up about which of her romantic partners meant the most to her.

"Who's been the love of your life?" Morgan asked.

"I have this little dog ..." Walters joked.

"Which is the man, if you had five minutes to live, you would take to a desert island?" Morgan tried again.

"If I had five minutes to live, it wouldn't be with any man. If I had five minutes to live it would be with my daughter, I would be with my closest friends. At this point in my life, I would not want to be with any one man," Walters explained.

After this, Walters forbade any more questions about her love life.

'House' Season 7, Episode 8 Recap (VIDEO)

'House's' team on the episode ['House' - 'Small Sacrifices']

Religion always makes a great foil for 'House.' Notice that I put House in quotation marks, referring to the show and not just Hugh Laurie's character.

Of course, it can fall into the inevitable tiger trap of House using his medical prowess to prove to some pious dolt that religion is just a big scam designed to do whatever scam it really is (i.e. financial, ethnic cleansing, sucking money out of poor people to build giant gold buildings).

This week's episode did go for the giant flank steak dangling over the covered hole in the ground, but it wasn't totally unsatisfying to know that the dumb ol' lug would fall in it.

"Money can't buy happiness. It IS happiness." - Jack

I was all ready to throw this episode of '30 Rock' onto the "so-so" pile. The first time I watched it I thought the Liz plot was really lame and there weren't quite as many great quotes as there usually are and Tracy didn't have much to do.

Then I watched it again and you know what? All those things happened to be true, but this was still a pretty good episode.

'Community' Season 2, Episode 9 Recap

Alison Brie and Kevin Corrigan in 'Community'['Community' - "Conspiracy Theories and Soft Defenses"]

Twist endings can be a lot of fun when done well, but as more and more movies and shows try to shock their audiences out of complacency with a well-timed "Aha!" moment, good twists become harder to come by. People start to expect the surprise, and nothing kills a reveal faster than a prepared observer; after all, there are only so many tricks a story can pull and still be consistent.

The end of 'Conspiracy Theories and Soft Defenses' worked because it never really wanted to catch us off guard. The climax, a series of increasingly ludicrous fake-outs, got laughs because it was ridiculous, and, by the end, managed to mock the idea of of the twist-ending without completely denying its charms. Once again, 'Community' walked the fine line between self-conscious parody and realistic characters, and once again, it nailed the balance perfectly. After an intermittently bumpy start, the show is on the kind of sophomore season run that guarantees its spot in all kinds of year-end top 10 lists.

'Friday Night Lights' Season 5, Episode 4 Recap

friday_night_lights_nbc_michael_b_jordan['Friday Night Lights' - 'Keep Looking']

Is football the answer to all of life's problems? No, of course not, but you can't tell that to uber-football fan Buddy Garrity (Brad Leland). When his troublemaker son arrives in Dillon and proves to be a rebel without a cause, Buddy gets his boy into pads and has him try out for the Lions as a way of straightening him out. If only Tami (Connie Britton) could fix Epic with a helmet and the pigskin ...

This was an interesting episode of 'Friday Night Lights,' as it built on certain stories that have been ongoing, like Julie (Aimee Teegarden) and Derek (Gil McKinney), while resolving at least one other. For more on that and Luke's (Matt Lauria) visit to TMU, read on.

This season has had more than a few episodes about fathers, with Gibbs' dad (Ralph Waite) targeted in the opener by the Mexican cartel and last week's return of Tony DiNozzo Sr. (Robert Wagner) in a lighter, fun episode that had him getting into the action.

But of all the characters on the show, it's Ziva (Cote de Pablo) who has the most complicated and explosive relationship with her father. This was not going to be a lighthearted episode. In fact, it was with some trepidation and intrigue that we watched the return of Eli David (Michael Nouri) to the show. How would Ziva handle it?

'Chuck' Season 4, Episode 8 Recap

['Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus The Fear of Death']

Tonight's 'Chuck' is a good example of why television can do things that other forms of popular entertainment rarely can. Sometimes television can be used to successfully replicate the same storytelling formula over and over again. There's nothing inherently wrong with that approach, but it doesn't take advantage of the medium's secret weapon. 'Chuck Versus The Fear of Death' showed what happens when the narrative and emotional buildup of several years' worth of storytelling gets exploited in order to push the show to the next level. It wasn't perfect, but at its core it was 'Chuck' at its finest.

Seeing a shaggy Chuck pop up on Castle's screens tonight served as a visual representation for what so much of this episode was about. If the first two seasons of the show were about Chuck Bartowski trying to get the Intersect out of his head in order to be normal, then the past two seasons have been accepting it not just as a part of himself but as a way to actually better that self. The trick, of course, lies in the following question: Does the Intersect actually make Chuck who he is, or simply enable him to become the man he could always be?

The Squints discover a current victim in a century-old shipwreck in this week's episode of 'Bones.'

['Bones' - 'The Shallow in the Deep']

Welcome to another 'Bones' recap. Or, as the theme has been the last few weeks, 'The Dating Game.' Last week we went into detail on the unemotional relationship between Booth and Hannah. This week we're taking a look at the kind-of, sort-of romance between Lance Sweets and Daisy.

When we last left the good doctor and Miss Wick they had decided to keep their relationship as platonic as possible after their long separation. However, as things do, it didn't go the way they planned. For they began heavily snogging each other even before the Season 6 premiere had ended. Now that the Squinterns have rotated through, we got to see how they've both moved on in their lives.

"I don't believe you! The liberal media would have told me about this!" - Liz, to Jack

So this will be the episode where the Tea Party will get all riled up because they were made fun of, a development we all knew was coming. But '30 Rock' makes fun of both the left and the right, don't they? Jack, the arch conservative, always gets the better zingers in about the liberal media and The Huffington Post and those damn hippies, so what's wrong with an episode that shows John Slattery as a nut job (as Liz put it)?

At least his New England accent was better than Julianne Moore's.

'Community' Season 2, Episode 8 Recap

['Community' - 'Cooperative Calligraphy']

It's called a "bottle episode" because it simulates the sensation of being trapped. In, y'know, a bottle. Because most shows operate on less than ideal budgets, showrunners are always looking for ways to cut costs that don't harm production values; given its regular indulgence in movie parodies and guest stars, 'Community' can't be the cheapest show to produce. So we get tonight's "Cooperative Calligraphy," which, credit cookie aside, took place entirely in one set, the study room at the library, and had no character appearances outside the ensemble and a few visits from the Dean.

Unsurprisingly, Abed realized what was happening early on. After Annie found she was missing a purple pen, she freaked out and demanded the whole group stay behind to help her look for it, or else confess they took it. This wasn't the first pen she's lost, and beneath her adorable, girl-next-door exterior, Annie hides the heart of a deeply insecure control freak, paranoid that everyone is out to get her because, after all, she deserves no better. So she stopped the exodus to the puppy parade and started pointing fingers. Abed recognized the bottle episode set-up, but he couldn't stop the inevitable; soon, friends were going for throats, and then everybody got naked.

'The Event' Season 1 Episode 7 Recap

['The Event' – 'I Know Who You Are']

'The Event' returned tonight, picking up moments after the climatic events of last episode. In addition, it carried over all the strengths and weaknesses of that previous hour. 'I Know Who You Are' continued to actually strengthen some of the show's core elements, even while its worst parts keep dragging the whole endeavor down. There's a potentially good show in here, buried under an unnecessarily tangled narrative. Streamlining the show's focus should yield increasingly stronger results, but for now, it's saddled with about one story line too many.

There were a lot of moving pieces in tonight's episode, with the three facets of the overall conspiracy in play. But on a fundamental level, the problems tonight were all the same. Each story, at its core, lay around themes of trust and family. While 'The Event' has often succeeded at telling a fairly interesting story with fairly bland characters, the protagonists tonight all made decisions in relatable fashion. Let's break things down by the type of familial problem at stake.

It was somewhat disappointing that there was no carry over from last week's 'Two and a Half Men,' which ended with Charlie (Charlie Sheen) bemoaning the loss of Rose (Melanie Lynskey).

But even though there was no Rose on the show, there was plenty of laughs. It was Evelyn's (Holland Taylor) birthday and there's nothing quite like the family get togethers at the Harpers!

"Four time Canadian Ace nominee and three time Tony ... Shalhoub sex partner..." - Jenna, doing her own obit voice-over

I think we're all wondering how Jack and Avery are going to break up on '30 Rock' (the same with Liz and Carol). Elizabeth Banks is too busy to be on a sitcom every week, so you know that Jack and Avery are going to separate at some point. I suppose they could keep them together by having Avery always "out of town," but that would be too lame to continue for too long.

The fact that she is pregnant complicates the plot a bit, so maybe she will stay on in some way.
