Recap: 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 12 Finale - The winner is...

Would Chelsea, Kirstie or Hines take the mirrorball?

It’s time for the finale of season twelve of “DWTS,” which is being addressed with all the fanfare of a royal wedding, but with tacky spangles, even more boring parts and fewer ridiculous hats. So let’s get through these two hours of fluff to learn the fate of our three celebrity finalists, shall we?

Recap: 'Glee' Finale - 'New York'

A trip to NYC highlights some of this season's problems, but offers hope for next year

Jayma Mays' appearance in the last three seconds of “New York”, tonight’s “Glee” season finale, says everything you need to know about this season’s quality of continuity. It was the final, and perhaps ultimate, “oh yea, and also THIS” writing moment of a season chock full o’ them. Only had Coach Beiste walked by in the background using Artie’s Magical Legs could that moment have been more jarring. Look, some shows are five pounds of story in a ten-pound bag. “Glee” is twenty-five pounds of story in that same bag, spilling over the edges at all times in a chaotic frenzy. Or, put another way: if other shows write their stories based on an existing recipe book, “Glee” just throws a ton of stuff into a pot just to see what happens. Every once in a while they accidentally concoct a dish that would win an episode of “Top Chef”. But usually they produce a plate that would be better served with something even remotely approaching narrative discipline.

Recap: 'The Voice' - The Battles, Part 3

Who would Blake, Cee-Lo and Christina send into gladiatorial combat this week?

After Tuesday's "American Idol" finale descended into a lackluster debacle of lethargic country and limiting laryngitis, the bar has been sufficiently lowered that I'm really looking forward to tonight's quartet of "Voice" Shout-Battles.

Game on, "The Voice."

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 10 Finale - The Performances

Could an illness-plagued Lauren Alaina pull off a surprising KO?

If you're as Twitter addicted as I am, you spent the 90 minutes leading up to Tuesday's "American Idol" finale on pins and needles waiting to see who FOX would offer up as a sacrificial lamb at the altar of St. Scotty McCreery. Would it be laryngitis-battling finalist Lauren Alaina or possible comeback kid Haley Reinhart?

Click through to find out who sang on Tuesday and who will lose to Scotty on Wednesday.

Recap: 'The Event' Finale - 'Arrival'

Did NBC's canceled drama at least tell us what The Event is/was? Kinda.

The final shot of “Arrival,” the season (and seemingly series) finale of  “The Event,” calls back to the same imagery that made the show’s pilot a hit last year. Back then we didn’t know what the nature of this show would be, and as the episodes rolled by, we continued waiting to find that out. Around mid-season it became clear that whatever the nature of “The Event” may be, we were already seeing it, and that it is perhaps best characterized by ‘waiting’ itself. At that point it just became a question of what we were waiting for. If the execution of the show was going to be so dull, we could at least hope for a solid payoff. Now, with the series coming to a close this week, I was left, sadly, almost as disappointed in the payoff as I was in everything leading up to it.

Recap: 'Dancing with the Stars' Performances - The Finals

Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane and Kirstie Alley fight for the mirror ball on 'DWTS'

Yay, it’s almost time for us to frantically vote for the season twelve champion! So far, everyone and their dogs (and some dogs, too) seem to be rooting for Hines, but I remain unconvinced. Yes, athletes always seem to win. Yes, Hines is cuddly as a teddy bear and has an equally heartwarming personal story. Yes, Kym deserves the sympathy vote for coming the closest to ending up in a wheelchair. But I’m still giving Chelsea the leg up for one simple reason – she’s just the best dancer. And, saying that, she’ll probably screw up royally tonight. So let the games begin!

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' - Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga

Could a beloved host end the 'SNL' season on a high note?

Justin Timberlake has helped “Saturday Night Live” produce two of its strongest episodes in recent years. Lady Gaga is as popular as popular music gets right now. Normally putting these two on the same episode of “SNL” would guarantee a classic night for the show. (The possibilities inherent in “Lonely Island + Timberlake + Gaga” boggle the mind. “Born this Way with a D#ck in a Box”, anyone?) But nothing’s so sure anymore for the sketch comedy institution. Will they pull out all the stops on this, the final episode of the year? Or have they already burned out, leaving us with a limp finish to the middling season?

Only one way to find out. As always, I’ll be grading each sketch as they air. Onto the final recap for the 2010-2011 season!

Recap: 'American Idol' Results - Down to the Top 2

Who made the Finals? And how were Nicole Scherzinger and 50 Cent?

This is our last Thursday "American Idol" Results Spectacular of the season. Yup. In case you haven't been paying attention, next week's "Idol" episodes are Tuesday and Wednesday, rather than Wednesday and Thursday, because the May Sweeps period (and The Official 2010-2011 TV Season) ends next Wednesday and FOX doesn't want to waste its "Idol" finale on a Thursday that effectively doesn't count. Thus, we can expect several helpful reminders from Ryan Seacrest during tonight's episode. And we can expect to send either Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina or Haley Reinhart home. But let's be serious: We're not sending Scotty McCreery home, are we?

Recap: 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 16 Finale- The winner is...

Molly and Brittani get made over, but who won Tyra's approval?

As we open on this finale episode of "America's Next Top Model" Cycle 16, let us engage in a moment of silence for Hannah. She of the weeping eyes and high-flying winged eyeliner will not be backcombing her hair into a Dee Snyder hawk’s nest and walking in a Vivienne Westwood fashion show for the finale. No! That honor is reserved for Molly and Brittani, one of whom will score a spread in Italian Vogue, a Cover Girl contract, representation with IMG, and the cover of Vogue Something or Other But Definitely Not Italian Vogue.

Recap: 'Top Chef Masters' - 'Date Night'

After a wedding proposal, one chef gets the boot

We’re down to just six chefs, and I’m sure it’s getting harder and harder for the judges to find a weak link at this point. After all, if you’ve made it this far your food must be pretty predictably solid. So when the chefs walk in for the Quickfire Challenge and discover a pile of what appears to be bondage gear, I’m wondering if the producers have just thrown up their hands and decided to make a food-related porn movie with our valiant chefs. Okay, not really. It’s a challenge of their senses. So nothing to fear, foodies!
