Recap: 'America's Next Top Model' - 'Diane Von Furstenberg'

With Demi Lovato guesting, the models tackle bullying and their own demons

Gee, I wonder if Demi Lovato may be on this episode. Something tells me Demi Lovato may be on this episode. Why do I keep obsessing over the fascinating fact that Demi Lovato may be on this episode? Could it be the eighty billion stories being lobbed at me by a merciless PR machine like a giant potato gun of high fashion propaganda?

Could be. Maybe. Not sure.

Recap: 'Big Brother' 12 Finale - And the winner is...

Will Enzo, Lane or Hayden represent The Brigade in the Winner's Circle?

It's time to wrap up another decent season of "Big Brother." I'm not sure that I'm rooting for any of the three finalists, but that doesn't mean that there haven't been a few fun moments along the way.

OK. Fine. I'll admit it: I'm rooting for Enzo. I'm not enthusiastically rooting for him, but if you figure that The Brigade was the season's dominant force -- and it'd be folly to say otherwise -- how can you not figure that makes The Meow-Meow the season's pivotal player? The problem? As we begin Wednesday's (Sept. 15) finale, Enzo's the only hamster with no chance of winning HoH. Uh-oh.

Recap: 'Survivor' Premiere - 'Young at Heart'

All anybody can do is talk about Jimmy Johnson, but is that a bad thing?
Semi-notable fact: "Survivor" hasn't aired an episode without Russell Hantz since May 17, 2009. Leaving aside whether you loved Russell or hated him, that's a long time in "Survivor"-Land and it seemed worth acknowledging.
 
Now, on to the premiere of "Survivor: Nicaragua" after the break...

Bill, Sookie, Eric, Russell, Pam, Jason, Tara and Sam reach a crossroads

Recap: 'The Vampire Diaries' Premiere - 'The Return'

Katherine's arrival brings out Damon's dark side and threatens Stefan

"The Vampire Diaries" is back with more intrigue, more Katherine, and the juicy ramifications of that Damon-Fauxlena kiss that left us panting in Season 1's shocker of a finale! See how "TVD" keeps its balls in the air and ties its story threads together in the most unexpected ways (while giving us steamy action, love triangles, murder galore, stabbings, and a hunky new maybe-werewolf) in its Season 2 opener.

Recap: 'Project Runway' - 'What's Mine is Yours'

The designers get paired up – and one team melts down

It’s time for another edition of the half-hour-too-long “Project Runway.” While I now find myself strangely drawn to Garnier products when I’m at Target, I have to say I haven’t found the newer, longer “PR” particularly rewarding. Except for the episode when Gwetchen lost her friggin’ mind. That, I could have watched the ten-hour director’s cut. I can only hope there are more Gwetchen meltdowns coming, or I’m going to start buying conditioner in cheap green bottles and it’s not going to be pretty.

Recap: 'Big Brother' Thursday - Why takes the Head of Househould lead?

Enzo, Hayden and Lane compete to determine their own finale fate

8:00 p.m. ET Why am I doing a minute-by-minute recap for a Thursday "Big Brother" episode that isn't going to feature an elimination? Well, force of habit for one thing. Also, I know my blogging structure for "Survivor" and "American Idol" and "The Amazing Race," but other than minute-to-minute Thursday elimination recaps, I don't have a feel for "Big Brother" and with less than a week left in the season, why am I going to bother experimenting with formats? Exactly. Plus... Final Head of Household!

Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - PoV and Eviction narrow the field to 3

Winning the POV has never been important – but who wins?
As the Chenbot helpfully points out, it’s a special eviction episode of “BB.” Otherwise known as Wednesday. I know, I should be more excited, but when we’re down to so few hamsters, and Lane and Britney have blown their chance to shake things up, it just isn’t that exciting any more. Basically, we’re just watching the (b)rigade waddle into the finals (sans Matt, of course) like a bunch of overfed zoo animals, and it’s about as thrilling as watching feeding time at the Galapagos turtle exhibit.

Recap: 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 15 - 'Welcome To High Fashion'

Tyra Banks seeks out a model to make the cover of Italian Vogue

Well would you look at that: Top Model just got classy. For the first time, a winner of Tyra Banks’s supermodel-choked superseries gets a spread in Italian Vogue. There will also be a contract with IMG, one of the top modeling agencies on Earth. What’s the Italian translation for “Gee, fancy!”?

It doesn’t end there. Big-name designers, photographers and editors are also on tap. I feel suddenly unworthy; I shall fight this feeling of Cycle 2-style inadequacy by seeking a distraction. Oh, hey, thanks, Tyra! Tyra’s going to tell me a story. She got discovered when she was in ninth grade while sitting on a bench at Immaculate Heart high school.

Recap: 'Big Brother' Sunday - Nominations put half the house in danger

A new HOH is named, and promises are made to be broken

You know, I can’t decide if Lane’s decision to keep his buddy Hayden over Ragan was an inspiring act of loyalty or just insanely stupid. Oh, come on, it was just insanely stupid, who am I kidding? I’m still a little stunned that, when presented with the harsh reality of what keeping Hayden in the game would mean for him, Lane actually decided it was more important to stick with the backstabbing (b)rigade than make a power move. Did he temporarily lose his mind? I guess it doesn’t matter, but it will make the rest of the show somewhat agonizing to watch as the two biggest floaters, Enzo and Hayden, merrily skip into the winner’s circle with nary an obstacle to block them.
