Snowboarder Jealous of Test Driving a Mustang on 'The Amazing Race' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 1:00AM
'The Amazing Race' - 'Release the Brake!'After last week's non-elimination, continuous leg of 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), the action never let up as the five remaining teams continued fighting their way through Europe. With raft-building, pigeon chasing, waffle making and test driving, the adrenaline never let up.

The challenge that only allowed one of the contestants to navigate the test course in a new Ford Mustang left Andy jealous when partner Tommy was selected to drive. As a car enthusiast, he was really bummed to miss out on that great opportunity.

Wilford Brimley is a Tough Interview For Craig Ferguson (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 3:00AM
Wilford Brimley, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson loves playful banter with his guests. And he and Geoff have had a lot of fun doing their Wilford Brimley impressions on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), so it should have been a lot of fun to have the mustachioed one on himself.

Unfortunately, the 77-year old actor was very short in most of his responses, leaving little room for banter. When asked what kind of horse he had, Brimley's curt response was, "A brown one."

He did reveal that he doesn't like people, which is why he's living in Wyoming. You know, '60 Minutes' has an opening for an old curmudgeon, and Brimley's mustache is at least as long as Andy Rooney's eyebrows were.

Cochran Suspects Two Castaways are Having Sex on 'Survivor' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 12:00AM
'Survivor: South Pacific'It's Thanksgiving week, which means its time for another special edition of 'Survivor: South Pacific' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS). Rather than move forward, we get to look back over the season and see new scenes. Usually, this is a tedious episode each year, but this time around it proved rather interesting as we've got a good crop of castaways this season.

We saw a lot more personality and cunning out of Cochran -- are they setting us up to watch him win the whole thing? -- through extra confessional scenes. But we also saw even more suffering from the season's most "fragile" player. Particularly when he had to share a bunk with Keith and Whitney, who were apparently doing more than cuddling for warmth.

'NCIS: Los Angeles' Keeps Deeks Guessing Until It's Almost Too Late (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2011 6:15AM
'NCIS: Los Angeles'Did you see the big reveal of the mole coming on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS)? Don't feel bad if you didn't. We didn't either. The episode did a pretty good job of distracting us with the whole Deeks-Kensi dynamic, and that pesky shooting situation with Deeks.

We love that the Deeks shooting was all a ploy to flush out the real mole in the LAPD. That was a fun twist after putting us through a pretty emotional roller coaster, along with his partner.

Plus, the writers did a good job of pinning the mole status on Bates, all the way until the big reveal at the red sedan when Deeks came walking up and Bates was ready to point the finger at him. Suddenly, it all came together.

Letterman Says Penn State Should Have Forfeited Remainder of Season (VIDEO)

Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo, 'Late Show with David Letterman'With Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on CBS), it was no surprise that the conversation quickly found its way to the Penn State controversy surrounding Jerry Sandusky and much of the university's organization.

Russo and David Letterman still, though, struggled to comprehend some of the particulars of the story. Specifically, the parts about the apparent cover-up of Sandusky's actions by members of the school staff, and people's continued involvement with him and his charity.

Robert Wagner Back as DiNozzo's Father, and a Suspect, on 'NCIS' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2011 1:00AM
Robert Wagner, 'NCIS' - 'Sins of the Father'It's always good television when Robert Wagner reprises his role as DiNozzo Sr. on 'NCIS' (Tue., 8PM ET on CBS), but his appearance brought a whole new dynamic to his character, and his relationship with his son. Especially because it also brought with it a dead body in the trunk of his car.

Making matters worse, Senior had threatened to kill the man after he got screwed by him on a deal. He also claimed no recollection of the events leading up to his being in the rented Rolls with a stowaway in the trunk. It showed a different, more desperate and less smarmy side to Senior that was nice to see.

Alan Tells Walden to Lose the Wedding Ring For His Date on 'Two and a Half Men' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 5:45AM
'Two and a Half Men' - 'Fishbowl Full of Glass Eyes'Walden began the slow and painful process of moving on from Bridget and his failed marriage on 'Two and a Half Men' (Mon., 9PM ET on CBS) and it's a welcome progression. But we're starting to wonder if this billionaire thing is going to become a problem for the writers.

It's a lot of fun having Alan lose his mind when Walden reluctantly gives him his wedding ring -- Alan advises him it's like Kryptonite when you're trying to date -- and he discovers its value is in the seven digits. But it's going to be continuously hard to imagine Walden not stepping in to help Alan out financially at some point.

Robin Williams + Chlamydia = Funny to Craig Ferguson (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 4:00AM
Robin Williams, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'It's always entertaining when Robin Williams is doing his thing on a late night talk show, but there was perhaps no one more entertained than host Craig Ferguson on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). Ferguson was telling a story about a sign he saw in a Scottish bar warning people about chlamydia.

At this, Williams erupted from his seat and shouted in a thick Scottish accent, "Chlamydia, your dad's here! He parked the van out back."

That was all it took for Ferguson to completely lose his composure. He so couldn't believe what he'd just heard that he had to confirm Williams said what he thought. "That's the stupidest thing I ever heard," he laughed. Stupid funny, perhaps, based on that reaction.

Ty Burrell Talks About His Dad Embarrassing Him As a Teen on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 3:15AM
Ty Burrell, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Ty Burrell accepted his Emmy with a story about his father. He seems to have tons of them, and they're all incredibly entertaining. After his latest on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), we're thinking he should write a book about the man. Maybe call it '$#*! My Dad Did' and get CBS to make a show about it ...

It looks like his dad did crazy things to help his son out, too, so it served a purpose. We loved his story about his father wearing a short robe into a hotel lobby to encourage his son to get changed faster after away games as a teen athlete.

Nothing embarrasses a teen more than their parents, and we can only imagine the added horror of the robe. Wonder if there'll be a run on those from parents irritated by their own teenagers looking for ways to get them in line?

Caroline Loses Her Holiday Spirit on '2 Broke Girls' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 1:00AM
'2 Broke Girls' - 'And the Very Christmas Thanksgiving'It's always been hard to believe that Caroline could remain so relentlessly perky considering what the character's been through. This week, though, we finally got a glimpse of what losing everything and everyone she's ever known has done to her emotionally on '2 Broke Girls' (Mon., 8:30PM ET on CBS), and it was about time.

Now, I don't want Caroline moping around every week -- as that appears to be Max's job -- but she does need to work through these emotions from time to time at least during her first year as part of the working class. Kudos to her for taking a bad situation (can't afford new mixer) and turning it into a potentially winning one.

'How I Met Your Mother' Closes With Game-Changing Surprise (VIDEO)

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'The Rebound Girl'It was all about the babies on this week's 'How I Met Your Mother' (Tue., 8PM ET on CBS). While Marshall and Lily were trying to decide where to move to raise theirs, Barney and Ted came up with the ridiculous idea of bro-parenting and adopting a baby of their own.

We absolutely loved the redesign of Marshall and Lily's apartment to be so tiny you couldn't even open the front door. It made us want to go back to last year's Thanksgiving episode so we could compare.

Robert Wagner Cuffed on 'NCIS' as LA Cops Say He's Not a Suspect in Wife's Death

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 21st 2011 8:25AM
Last week the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. announced they are re-examining the drowning death of movie star Natalie Wood. The news led to frenzied speculation as to whether her husband, actor Robert Wagner, would now be named a suspect in her death, which has always been shrouded in mystery.

At a press conference Friday, a sheriff's spokesman told reporters that Wagner is not a suspect. "Her death was ruled an accident, an accidental drowing. And that's what it is. If, at the end of it, our investigation points to something else, then we'll address that."

However, over the last few days CBS viewers could have been forgiven for being rather confused about Wagner's status because he keeps appearing on screen in handcuffs. That's because, in a collision of art and life, the network's been promoting tomorrow night's episode of 'NCIS,' in which his character is accused of murder. After being asked if they'd considered postponing the episode, a CBS source told The Wrap that it "is running as scheduled."

Muscles in Brussels on 'The Amazing Race' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 21st 2011 6:30AM
'The Amazing Race' 19There was no room to hide on this week's episode of 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) when the Racers visited the European Parliament Building in Brussels, Belgium. Sadly for them, they weren't there to learn about the political machinations of the European Union, or to sample such Belgian gastronomic delights as beer, or mussels and fries with mayonnaise.

Instead, the teams got a taste of the favorite pastime of Belgium's most famous son -- no, not Tintin or Jacques Delors -- Jean-Claude Van Damme: Bodybuilding! It was time to break out the shaving foam, breathe in and strike a pose wearing nothing but a smile and a ridiculously small and shiny posing pouch.

As Andy gamely applied bronzer to fellow snowboarder Tony's lower regions he sighed "Our friendship has hit a whole new level." Former NFL tight end (no pun intended) Marcus may have been the only one who actually enjoyed the experience, saying "I really got into it." He was rewarded for his efforts with some very enthusiastic whistling from the ladies in the crowd.

CBS Chief Les Moonves Thinks 'Two and a Half Men' Could Last for 'Many Years'

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 18th 2011 3:30PM
Les MoonvesYou could forgive CBS CEO Leslie Moonves for being a little stressed; after Charlie Sheen's acrimonious exit from 'Two and a Half Men' earlier this year, America's biggest sitcom was in serious danger of imploding, leaving the network wondering if they might have to slaughter their golden goose just to save face.

Against all odds, 'Two and a Half Men' bounced back bigger than ever with the addition of Ashton Kutcher this season, but lately it seems as though Moonves has simply traded one headline-grabber for another. From engaging in a war of words with the Village Voice over sex trafficking to making a twit of himself on Twitter with an uninformed comment about Joe Paterno, Kutcher is developing a reputation almost as noisy as Sheen's -- and his impending divorce from Demi Moore over rumors of infidelity won't help matters much.

Still, despite Kutcher's antics, Moonves apparently doesn't think his golden goose is in danger any longer. According to Deadline, the CEO spoke confidently about the future of 'Two and a Half Men' at the recent Hollywood Radio and Television Society Newsmaker Luncheon in Beverly Hills.

"With these numbers, I'm hoping this show will last for many, many years," he insisted, also praising Kutcher's performance. "We're more than happy with how well Ashton has done, other than his comments about Penn State."

Robin Williams and Craig Ferguson Talk Offending With Comedy (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 18th 2011 4:15AM
Robin Williams, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Robin Williams and Craig Ferguson both know a thing or two about offending people. In this modern era of instant Internet feedback, it seems it's getting harder and harder to not offend people. Which is why, according to Ferguson 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), you stick with Nazi jokes.

Williams modified that claim, though, with one caveat. It doesn't work if you're in Germany, as he found out first-hand. On a talk show, he was asked why he thought there aren't as many comedians in Germany.

"Did you ever think you tried to kill all the funny people?" he replied. The answer was not received with laughter.
