Eva Longoria on 'The Next Food Network Star'This next show brings into question what level of celebrity is actually worthy of being called a "celebrity." On 'The Next Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food Network), contestant Brad is terrified about serving food to Eva Longoria. ... Oh, Brad. We have to ask, why?

[Spoiler alert.]

Yes, Eva is currently on a TV series, and yes, she's a judge. And yeah -- she's currently married to an NBA star who hasn't won anything in a while. But we have to ask -- is this such a big deal? Brad seems to panic, and that doesn't really to help his case, cooking-wise. OMG! IT'S EVA LONGORIA! And he cares ... why?

In the end, Brad's excessive concern doesn't work out. He gets kicked off the cooking show. Dude; Brad. Just maybe relax a little next time around.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'A Little Night Music' Recap

(S06E21) "I really need to surprise my audience." - Patrick

'Desperate Housewives' writers should have followed the dialog they wrote for Patrick and try to surprise us because 'A little Night Music' was anything but surprising. I expected much better this week since this is, after all, one of the last three episodes of the season.

Even if the episode was a let down, it did push the storylines a bit further and reminded us that you can't run from your past and lies all your life as they will catch you sooner or later.

How Much Longer Can ABC Keep 'Desperate Housewives' Cast From Bolting?

by Gary Susman, posted Apr 29th 2010 2:00PM
With the sixth season of 'Desperate Housewives' winding down, how much longer can the series stay on the air? Depends on the players and how long ABC can get them to stick around.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the network would like another two seasons. Creator Marc Cherry has spoken of a nine-season run. But the core cast - Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, and Eva Longoria Parker - are contracted for only one more season, and so far, says Deadline, there's been little negotiation between the network and the stars about an eighth season.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Epiphany' Recap

(S06E20) "His name was Eddie. Everyone thought he was harmless." - Mary Alice

Let's get it out of the way right now: this week's episode, 'Epiphany,' is no 'The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,' the show's 100th episode which starred Beau Bridges last season and had the same episode format. No matter, this week's installment offered us a nice walk down memory lane, including scenes with Mary Alice (above with 4-year-old Eddie, while showing us why the latter became to be the Fairview Strangler.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'We All Deserve to Die' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E19) "Sometimes ... we let it in." - Mary Alice about "Evil"

After months without mentioning the strangler storyline, 'Desperate Housewives' finally let "Evil" back in and treated us not only with hints and, sadly, a new killing, but also with the identity of the culprit!!!

We first saw the person in the second episode of the season. My immediate instinct was that the strangled was a young man with whom Julie may have had a complicated "thing" with and that I didn't think it was Julie's ex (played by Steven Weber). In comments TV Squad readers left to my review of that episode, most fingers were pointed at Danny, McCluskey, Ana, Angie, Roy, and Katherine. Of course, as more episodes aired, people were added to the list while others were removed. Did you guess right? The answer coming up!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'My Two Young Men' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E18) "You should never trust family photos. They are designed to be deceiving." - Mary Alice when describing the Van De Kamp's photos

Last week's episode set a lot of storylines in motion: Preston and Irina's upcoming wedding, Sam becoming a part of Bree's life, Katherine and Robin potentially becoming a couple, and Patrick eventually finding the Bolens. This week, these four storylines continued to be developed and questions were raised as we fast approach the final episodes of this season of 'Desperate Housewives.'

Before I comment on these four storylines and the fact that Preston still has the worst fake mustache in TV history, I must warn you that the next new episode will air on April 18. That means we will have to wait close to a month before getting new dish on our favorite Wisteria Lane residents!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Chromolume #7' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E17) "I know that you have a secret." - Gaby to Angie

'Desperate Housewives' titles are always found in lyrics of songs written by Stephen Sondheim. This week's unusual title is no different. 'Chromolume #7' is a song in the musical 'Sunday in the Park with George.' More precisely, the Chromolume #7 is a color and light machine featured in an act of the musical.

The title fits with Mary Alice's commentary at the end of the episode saying that it's not always easy to see people's true colors and that people hide their true nature from us every day. This week, we got confirmation on Angie's secret, we learned who Sam really is, we discovered how Gaby acted when she was a high profile model, and we met Preston's girlfriend and mustache!

The Marriage Ref, Tina Fey, Eva LongoriaIs flossing in bed – or anywhere other than the bathroom – gross? Yes! And the panel on 'The Marriage Ref' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC) agrees with us!

We're glad to know that Jerry Seinfeld, Tina Fey and Eva Longoria Parker all agree that not only is flossing in bed just plain wrong, the whole segment was downright disgusting.

Marriage partners, take note -- never, ever floss in bed! Case closed, let's move on.

Watch the video after the jump.

'The Marriage Ref' Would Be Funnier Without the Celebrities

The Marriage Ref
'The Marriage Ref' is a strange beast. After watching last night's post-Olympic sneak preview of the show, which moves to its Thursday at 10PM ET slot on March 4, it feels like a '60s-style celebrity panel game show joined to a TLC marriage show.

It's a pretty straightforward idea: a married couple is depicted having an argument over a specific issue. In the pilot, for instance, one husband wanted to get his recently-deceased dog stuffed and display the mutt in the living room, over his wife's vehement objections.

The celebrity panel, who in the premiere consisted of Kelly Ripa, Alec Baldwin and executive producer Jerry Seinfeld, talk and joke about the situation, coming down one one side or the other. The final decision is rendered by the ref, host Tom Papa, who tells the couple via satellite feed.

But the pilot made me want to see much more of the couples having their funny conflicts than the celebrities yukking it up over those conflicts. And that's a problem.

(S06E16) "You may envy our lives, Gaby, but it's nothing compared to how we envy yours." - Bob to Gaby

After last week's episode centered around Robin, I expected this week's installment to put the main ladies back front and center. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the 'Desperate Housewives'' writers hadn't forgotten about some of the background characters and decided to give them center stage this week.

'The Chase' offered us tidbits about Penny, Karen McCluskey, Andrew, Celia and, two of my favorite recurring characters, Bob and Lee. While introducing a new cryptic character named Sam ... For sure, he has a secret agenda that will rock Wisteria Lane.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Lovely' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E15) "Hello, there!" - Roy to Robin

When Susan and Mike decided to have Robin live under their roof at the end of the last 'Desperate Housewives' episode, it was pretty much a given that her presence on Wisteria Lane would shake things up a bit. As expected, the men and teenage boys drooled all over her while the ladies wanted her off their block asap!

Even if I knew Robin would stick around for a while -- Julie Benz's stay on the show has been extended from three to an unknown number of episodes, by the way -- I never expected her to get a full episode centered around her, especially so soon. It almost looks like Marc Cherry and co. are ready to have her permanently move to Wisteria Lane, don't you think?

Not only did Robin have an impact on all ladies and their families, which helped change their minds about Robin, but the character's background got fleshed out rather rapidly. We may even know more about Robin after only two episodes than we did about the Applewhites at the end of their season!

(S06E14) "Stink, stank, stunk." - Lynette to Dr. Graham

Before going on a short hiatus, Desperate Housewives treated us with a so-so episode. This week's episode introduced an almost unrecognizable Julie Benz as stripper Robin (see above), whom Susan takes under her wing; offered us a funnily stinky performance from Frasier's Jane Leeves, which helped Tom and Lynette grow as a couple; put Angie and the Solises at odds as Danny and Ana were ready to take their relationship to the next step; and had the Bree-Orson storyline take a turn that I'm not enjoying at all.

Guess who's coming to Sesame Street?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 21st 2010 10:40PM
There are few signs in this crazy business that you have become an indelible and beloved member of the pop culture lexicon than getting a cameo appearance on an episode of Sesame Street. Case in point: Gallagher, O.J. Simpson and Kanye West have yet to appear on an episode of Sesame Street.

Well, would you want West teaching your kids the difference between "near" and "far," things that are yellow and why George Bush hates black people?

Some upcoming episodes of the long running PBS kids' show will include appearances by Christina Applegate on Jan. 25, Hugh Jackman on Jan. 27, Debi Mazar and Sarah Jessica Parker on Feb. 16 and Paul Rudd and Eva Longoria-Parker on Feb. 18.
