So, after years (and seasons) of bitter feuding, failed therapy, hurt feelings and high-pitched squeaking from Teresa, it seemed in Sunday's episode of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" that the war is over. Somebody, set up a parade and call the baton twirlers! Or give Dr. V her own series on Bravo (wait, she has one)!

On Oxygen's "I'm Having Their Baby" (Wed. at 10:00 p.m.), each week we meet a new mom faced with a terrible choice -- place the baby she's carrying in the hopes he or she could have a better life, or try to raise the child with few resources and usually little support. That these women also face the condemnation of loved ones is just a given.
In this HitFix exclusive clip, Cathleen asks her mother to be with her when she has to hand off her son the the adoption professional. It's a request her mother doesn't take lightly, and the conversation that ensues isn't a pretty one. The milkshakes don't even help.
Well, consider this a major coup for the Big Apple. Paul Greengrass’ “Captain Phillips,” a fact-based thriller about a hijacking at sea, was widely expected to make its festival debut in Toronto, or even Venice, ahead of its US release on October 11. Instead, however, it will have its world premiere as the Opening Film of the 51st New York Film Festival, which runs from September 27 to October 13.
Avicii's "Wake Me Up" music video has some advice for you: If you ever get the feeling you're too young and beautiful for your tiny, inbred, podunk town, then find your way to the closest metro and dance your ass off to Avicii.
The clip was shot as part of a fashion campaign (which rhymes with Lalph Rauren) and features several nonsensically beautiful models. A woman and a child are stared down by the townspeople as they strut through town.
"They don't like us... why?" the child asks the "mother."
Because you are traditionally pretty, immaculately conceived and wearing a belt, and that ish is just mind-blowing.
Conform and get a tattoo and turn up "Wake Me Up," featuring the talented Aloe Blacc.

It's been several years since we've had a Television Critics Association press tour session with Les Moonves, but with Nina Tassler unexpectedly called out of town CBS Corp's president and CEO is taking the dais on Monday morning.
This week's episode is a little less giddily bloodthirsty and quite a bit more somber than usual, as befits a death in the "True Blood" family -- last week Terry Bellefleur (the always excellent Todd Lowe) was shot and killed. We knew it was coming, but I had been hoping for some random twist to save Merlotte's fry cook. Wishful thinking. But in losing Terry, our surviving humans are given an opportunity to deal with a loss both more straightforward than what we're used to seeing on this show (no vampires, no werewolves, that sort of thing) and yet more complicated than anyone has yet to realize. R.I.P., Terry. You're just one more casualty on a show that's positively silly with them -- and chalks up another big one this week as well.
I never thought Aaryn would be HoH for a second time, largely because I thought she'd have been sent home by this point in the game, but wonders never cease on "Big Brother," do they? By some incredible stroke of luck (or a very precise throwing arm), Aaryn is the queen of the castle this week -- which means almost anything could happen. The only guarantee? Clowny the creepy clown is back! Mwahahahahaha!
Tonight's "Ray Donovan" was the last of the five episodes I saw before I wrote my initial review of the series. I was not crazy about the series (though I liked specific pieces of it), particularly as it moved along, and had felt that the pilot was the best of the five by a significant margin. So now that you've all had a chance to see what I've seen, I'm curious how you're feeling about "Ray." A number of you were fans of the pilot; do you still feel that way now?
A review of tonight's "The Killing" coming up just as soon as I explain that Salisbury steak is not steak...

Damon Lindelof worries a 10-year "Lost" reunion might be too soon
"Ten years does seem like the perfect time," Lindelof tells E! News. "But I also wonder if it's too soon? Especially if the announcement of such a panel would stir up rumors of MORE Lost, which is most definitely not in the cards at this time. That said, if someone was organizing it, I would be foolish not to attend...It's just not anything we've initiated internally."

I've been talking to people about "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for the last week or so, some who were at Marvel's Hall H presentation, many who were not, and I think at this point, it's safe to call this the single biggest risk on Marvel's calendar. I don't think there's much middle ground on this one. Either it wins people over and becomes a big hit, or it never gets past the initial impression that many people seem to have, which is, "There's a raccoon who does WHAT?!"
About a week ago, I finally sat down and watched "Movie 43," the anthology comedy film that has been vilified since its release at the start of the year. I think the film is dirty more than funny, intentionally trading shocks for laughs for the most part, but the segment that was directed by James Gunn is, in a very strange way, the single best audition tape that Gunn could have made for the "Guardians Of The Galaxy" job.
