Mike Rowe tells fans that 'Dirty Jobs' has been scrubbed

Star proud to say he 'never shared the sewer with Paris Hilton'

It's going to be an unhappy Thanksgiving for fans of "Dirty Jobs." After eight years, star Mike Rowe took to the Interwebs to let the public know that he's navigated his last sewer for the show. "A few weeks ago, I was officially informed that 'Dirty Jobs' had entered into a new phase," he wrote in a post for the Huffington Post. "One I like to call, "permanent hiatus." Or in the more popular industry vernacular, canceled."

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Two couples go - and not the ones you might expect

Paula Abdul shows us her dreams are mostly old MTV videos

It's the double elimination all the remaining celebrities fear -- no one wants to go home this far into the competition. To get so close to the mirror ball and fall short of the mark? Heartbreaking. Though I would tell said celebrities, hey, it's a mirror ball. I don't even think you'd get much money for pawning it. So, you know, have some fun. Enjoy the fact you probably dropped a dress size or two without trying. It's all good.

Hugh Laurie in negotiations to star in "Crossbones" for NBC

He'll be able to keep his Brit accent to play Blackbeard the pirate
Apparently playing medicine's favorite bad boy drug addict can open the door to a gig as one of the most famous rebels in history. Deadline.com is reporting NBC is in negotiations with former "House" star Hugh Laurie to star in a new action-adventure series, "Crossbones." The project comes from "Luther"creator Neil Cross and feature producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. This time around, Laurie won't have to fake the accent, as he'll be playing the English pirate Blackbeard.

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: 'Don't Sing for Your Supper'

Yolanda may be a great hostess, but Taylor's not impressed

Just so you know, Yolanda Foster throws fabulous dinner parties. Yes, her husband tells some guests they're not talented enough to engage in the after-dinner sing-along, but that's mostly because it's all about him telling stories of his youth and all the famous people he's worked with. But really, they should shut up simply because they're in the presence of greatness. If he wants to tell stories about Boz Scaggs, they'd better listen! Even if they don't know who Boz Scaggs is! But I'm getting ahead of myself. A few other things happen, thank God, because just watching the Foster's fabulous dinner party makes me want to throw something at the screen after a few minutes. Maybe I would feel  more patient if I'd been given a tempura avocado roll. Just a thought.

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: A tribute to Michael Jackson and weird mash-ups

It's a fraught semi-finals with a double elimination looming

We kick things off with a Michael Jackson tribute, because it’s the 25th anniversary of his album “Bad.” So, that will explain last week’s whackadoo dance assignments, right? Well, no. It just adds another level of confusion, as the second half of the evening will be dedicated to Michael Jackson, but not the first. Yeah, the weird mash-ups will just be freestanding weird mash-ups. Let's just hope this is something that will never be repeated on the show. Never, ever.

Justin Bieber gets the Oprah treatment on 'Oprah's Next Chapter'

Watch a preview of one of the singer's most 'in-depth' interviews ever

For true Beliebers, it's been a pretty good month. Justin Bieber may (or may not) have gotten back onto the market following his (maybe on, possibly off again) split with Selena Gomez.  Hey, it's sad, but he might be single! Or not! And now we learn he's done a sit-down with Oprah. Her interview with Bieber will air on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” Sun., Nov. 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: 'Call Me Miss USA'

Porsha and Kendra go head to head at a charity fundraiser

This week, we get to meet our latest housewife, Porsha. It seems fitting that Porsha battles with our other new housewife, Kenya, over an extremely trivial matter, and it all ends in name calling and hurt feelings. This is how our beloved housewives roll, so it's nice to see the new kids picking up the ball so quickly. Of course, they aren't the only housewives on the show, though the other housewives seem too tired and battle-worn to get fired up about much of anything this early in the season. Still, it's nice to check in with them, check their temperatures and make sure they haven't become too Zen and conflict-averse (NeNe, I'm looking at you). Maintaining housewives is like training pitbulls. Once they lose their taste for blood, they might as well become housepets.

'Project Runway' recap: 'Made in the USA Today'

They need to create headlines, but one gets a career obit

We kick things off the way we always do -- with a useless introduction from the host. Carolyn Murphy imitates Heidi Klum, but without the German accent that makes the bitchy attitude oddly endearing. Carolyn tells the designers it's time for the first fan interactive challenge! Which Joanna Coles will explain! In the workroom! Do we really have to stick with this stupid structure? Come on, Lifetime, this show is only an hour! And those poor designers have to go to two locations for no stinking reason!
