Somebody finally goes home, while Russell begins to scramble
This elimination challenge is so tough even the judges are stumped
Five chefs remain – and one of them is Tiffany. Huh. Richard can’t believe Dale went home last week, neither can Tiffany and for that matter, color me stumped, too. What no one says (except for Tiffany) is that everyone was pretty sure she was packing her knives last week, as she’s seemed to be circling the drain for a while now. I’m not saying she isn’t talented, but some of her dishes have seemed, if not inedible, a little rough. At this stage in the competition, the bar has been raised awfully high and I’m just not sure she’s firing on all burners, so to speak.
The models take acting lessons and then pose with live bees
Sexsational: It’s the “werq” of 2011, ladies! And it’s also the word that the judges have used to describe Molly, the first panel winner. Poor Nicole, meanwhile needs to get her youth on; she’s been told by the panel that she photographs 15 years too old. Ouch! But will Tyra pay for her laser peel?

The Laurens shine, the Killer Z's struggle and Pia wins the night
Watching the Top 12 Men perform on-air on Tuesday, I realized that I'd fallen victim to In Person Inflation Syndrome, convincing myself after watching the taping that the contestants were better than they turned out to be.
What will that mean for the Top 12 Women on Wednesday (March 2) night?
I walked out of the Monday taping convinced that the gals were completely inferior to the guys. Did I suffer from In Person Deflation Syndrome and will they all prove to be far better than I thought? Or will it turn out that the women were even worse than my middling initial read?
Click through for my recap. Once again, I'll be including some additional tidbits from my time in the audience. The caveat is that Monday's taping was far more fluid than Friday's, so there may not be anything juicy this time around...
Did 'Idol' save the best for last on Tuesday night?
If you read my Top 24 preview, posted this afternoon, you know that I was in the audience for Friday's taping of Tuesday (March 1) night's performances by the "American Idol" Top 12 Guys.
Click through with my recap of the performances, judged tonight, plus little trivia tidbits culled from my attendance at the taping...
The Race stared down the Oscars with aboriginal art and kangaroo costumes
A fateful meeting leads to a break through for Walternate
The Friday night run of “Fringe” has polarized fans of the show, if comments around these parts are any indication. I know it’s polarized me, as I have winced as often as I have marveled at the steps the show is taking. I’ve tried to couch my reservations with the caveat that the proof will be in the multiverse pudding, but that hasn’t allayed fears that the idea of Peter’s choice of which Olivia to love will determine the fate of an entire universe seems a bit…well, hokey. It’s not that I need emotional resonance removed from my sci-fi. But I don’t want the entire endeavor to boil down to well-produced fanfic, either.

The Martins are determined to revive Elijah, but the plan comes with a cost
Time for more fun with vampires! And witches! Not so much with werewolves, because they’re in Florida or something, but they’ll come back eventually, I’m sure. So, we begin with suggestive frolicking. Elena tells Stefan they should go to school at some point. That Elena, always so conscientious! Stefan thinks this is cute because after a couple hundred years you realize higher education is a big waste of time. Actually, some people realize that a lot sooner. But I digress.
Will Jennifer Lopez return to hug the remaining Semifinalists?
When we left Paula Abdul... errr... Jennifer Lopez, the emotionally unstable "American Idol" judge was bawling and questioning her ability to handle the remainder of the judging process.
Wednesday's episode ended with a big ol' "To Be Continued..." leaving as many as two viewers nationwide wondering if J-Lo would be able to return.
Click through for a full reveal of the rest of the Top 24 and to discover if J-Lo mustered up the guts to deliver both good and bad news...
Phillip remains eccentric, but Rob's tribe may have a bigger threat
