The previews show Tori doing her best to hide her baby bump from the press -- including an awesome scene of her writhing around on the closet floor, trying to get her Spanx on -- while Dean is trying his hand in the culinary arts. (I can't wait for the inevitable episode where Tori compares sharp knives and mandolines to racing motorcycles, Dean's last swiftly-nixed hobby.)
In our exclusive clip from this season, little Liam is acting out and playing rough with mama Tori in the middle of a photo shoot (fun takeaway: even Tori's cropped 'do is all extensions!), forcing Tori to finally admit that her good cop role to daddy Dean's bad cop can't last forever.
Watch and tell us: Do you think Tori is a better mom than her mom was?
I wrote in my season 4 review that 'Box Cutter' was one of the finest season premieres I'd ever seen, and the word that kept coming to mind as I watched it was 'trust.'
There isn't any between Gus and Walt, but trust was nevertheless evident in every frame shot in the Superlab.
They say hindsight is 20/20. Unfortunately for the groups on this season of 'American Idol,' no one realized that a star was being born in the chubby, unassuming Jacee Badeaux.
Although easily a fan and judge favorite, Jacee Badeaux had a horrible time trying to find a group that believed in his talents.
It was looking almost like the end of the road for Jacee before he connected with a group who desperately need a day-two member.
Although the judges made it pretty clear that people who flubbed words during their performance would go home, they let Jacee slide, making the bumpy group auditions worth the 'Idol' ride for this early fan favorite.
'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on Fox.
For those of you who wish Thanksgiving would never end, 'Chuck' had just the recipe for you tonight. However, 'Chuck Versus the Leftovers' was, shall we say, undercooked. All the ingredients were there for a solid episode -- Mama Bartowski, Alexei Volkoff, Morgan Grimes as John McClane -- and yet, very little of it came together. Toss in the emphasis of the season's most annoying story line, and you had an episode that left a slightly bitter taste in one's mouth.
Volkoff -- upset that Chuck survived the blast in Stephen Barktowski's basement -- ordered Mary to send a trio of hit men (The Three Assassamigos?) in order to finish the job. Even though Chuck's only fighting lessons consist of the same ones that Carmen Electra no doubt teaches, Sarah and Mary manage to save his hide once again. If it's a Mary episode of 'Chuck,' then it's probably an episode in which Chuck behaves childishly, and therefore annoyingly, until the bitter end of the hour. And tonight followed that pattern slavishly.
"Of course, the secular progressive agenda is a theme in my book," O'Reilly bragged. "So I"m glad to see the 'Glee' people are reading it."
O'Reilly didn't offer any comment on the fact that 'Glee' was mocking the way O'Reilly characterizes people he disagrees with as having a "secular progressive agenda." But that's probably because he seemed so excited to see Meatloaf onscreen. (And who can blame him for that.)
In this segment from 'Out of Control Drivers' (Sun., 9PM ET on TLC), the Oklahoma Highway Patrol makes repeated attempts to nudge the rear-end of this speeding criminal in a vain attempt to spin the blue car out of control. But this suspect is either incredibly lucky or a hotshot driver -- he pulls off some unbelievable maneuvers to keep one step ahead of the law.
Spoiler guru Reality Steve has, up to this point at least, successfully predicted every show twist and elimination on 'The Bachelorette', including the upcoming scandal that will rock next week's episode. This is due to a number of well-placed sources and the fact that the 'Bachelorette' finished filming in May, which means that Ali's final decision has long been made.
Would you like to know how (we're 99 percent sure) 'The Bachelorette' ends this season? Join us after the jump and BEWARE OF HEAVY SPOILERS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON -- they can leave bruises, you know.
"It was strictly a story-line-related decision," an unnamed 'Ordinary' source told Ausiello, maintaining that producers of the show hope to bring the pair back on a guest-star basis, depending on their schedules.
Beck took a minute of time during Tuesday's 'Glenn Beck' show (weekdays, 5PM ET on FNC) to credit his wife with making him see the error of his ways. After she heard his on-air comments, she quietly asked him why he had "made fun of the president's children."
In case the last season of 'The Bachelor' and the numerous previews, 'After the Rose' specials, opening credit voiceovers and multiple Chris Harrison interviews during the episode didn't quite give you the whole story, allow us to remind you that Ali Fedotowsky almost won Jake Pavelka's heart last season on 'The Bachelor,' before her mean old employers were meaniefaces who told her to stop frolicking about on a reality game show and get back to work, or risk getting fired.
And because Ali was a workaholic shrew, she chose her career over love and broke poor Jake's heart -- for shame! Much weeping and hand-wringing ensued for the rest of the season, and in subsequent tabloid columns, just to remind us that one should never choose career stability and a steady paycheck over a dreamy hunk of Texan man who can fly planes to like, anywhere!
But now Ali is back, and she's learned her lesson! She's quit her job and moved out of her apartment in her quest for romance, so let's just hope that none of her potential suitors have recently quit their jobs and are living with their parents, since that could get awkward. Oh, wait ...
TheWB.com's 'Rockville, CA' (premieres Tues., March 17) revolves entirely around one of the things Schwartz's hit shows are known best for: killer soundtracks. Taking place at fictitious Club Rockville, the web series' cast consists of a bevy of easy-on-the-eyes twenty-somethings, including the club owners, their friends and, of course, the music fans.
AOL TV hit the set at real-life venue the Echoplex in L.A. to chat with the stars and Schwartz's music guru, Alexandra Patsavas. Then, just like that, we were treated to an awesome live performance by the episode's featured band, Travis. It's all in a day's work, folks ... -- By Maggie Furlong
What exactly was so offensive about the ad, which featured Tyra and the show's contestants in bathing suits against a waterfall? The city's director of transit services said that most of the complaints came from people who felt that the city was endorsing a show that was disrespectful to women. Whether you find ANTM disrespectful to women depends a great deal on whether or not you think the entire modeling industry is disrespectful to women. I find ANTM's labor practices more offensive than I do the content of the show, and almost all advertisements turned into a big, blurry morass of noise for me back in the mid-90s. Regardless, do as you will Santa Monica residents (and ANTM contestants). To paraphrase wordsmith and raconteur Bobby Brown, it's your prerogative.
