'Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: 'Mexi-Loco'

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: Are Apollo and Phaedra doomed?

Oh, Apollo. Sure, it's really swell that you managed to come to some kind of a semi-coherent, possibly drunken accord with Kenya. That's peachy keen. The problem is that Phaedra has been telling you for a mighty long time not to talk to Kenya, and you just don't care. She might as well be telling you to eat your vegetables or wash the dishes, because you keep reacting as if she's being a mean old mommy, which is not really a great thing in a marriage.

18 things we learned from 'The Vampire Diaries' PaleyFest panel

For Ian Somerhalder, it's all in the eyes

I'm fairly sure I would have more to relate from my trip to "The Vampires Diaries" PaleyFest panel if not for the screaming. Oh, yes, screaming. Before the panel began, there was screaming. During a short video tribute to Katherine Pierce (more on that later), there was screaming. When Paul Wesley spoke, there was screaming. When Ian Somerhalder spoke, there was screaming. When anyone spoke, there was screaming. Did I mention the screaming? Needless to say, a lot of dishy details were drowned out by, yes, screaming.

Exclusive clip: It's a frozen turkey fiasco on 'None of the Above'

You will not believe what happens in this experiment

On Nat Geo's new series, "None of the Above" (premiering Mon. March 24 at 9:00 p.m.), host Tim Shaw challenges viewers to guess the outcome of his over-the-top (and sometimes explosive) experiments. In this exclusive clip, Shaw decides he wants to cook a frozen turkey fast. So, why not drop it in a 30-gallon drum of peanut oil? That has to end well, right?

'The Vampire Diaries' recap: Can Enzo be trusted?

And are Damon and Elena meant to be?

A theme running throughout this episode is Elena's disappointment in her friends -- which is entirely valid, because seriously, how could they not tell Katherine had moved in and started calling the shots? Though Katherine made an attempt at imitating Elena, she didn't try all that hard -- all too often she wanted to do something and simply whipped up a feeble excuse as to why Elena might blunder into it (gosh, Stefan, didn't mean to get all that oil on my shirt -- oopsie, I'm naked in a hotel room with you!). Of course, only in Mystic Falls could  you even entertain the idea that a dying vampire had hopped into your friend's body without being institutionalized. Still, it's like getting a haircut that no one notices -- wasn't anyone paying attention?

'Duck Dynasty' hasn't changed, but have we?

Dipping ratings may not mean what you think

After Phil Robertson said the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person (to wit: his opinion of homosexuals, the 21st century, a GQ reporter), there were many people calling for his suspension (which happened), his reinstatement (which also happened) and the end of "Duck Dynasty" (which didn't). While ratings represented a year-over-year dip when the show returned for a fifth season in January, 8.5 million viewers are nothing to sneeze at, especially for a basic cable show. This week the show lured in under 5 million viewers, again making it the most-watched basic cable show by a landslide. Not bad, but less than half of the 11.8 million that was the series' high watermark.

Exclusive clip: It's time for the Trailer Park Games on 'Myrtle Manor'

Chelsey can't pound beers, and Jared wonders why

Gosh, talk about ruining the Trailer Park Games for Jared. He wants to practice pounding back beers (this is called training or, on other days, Saturday night), but his wife just won't join in. Why would a respectable trailer park woman turn down beer? Hmmm, let's see. A raging yeast infection? Mouth sores? Wait, I know, pregnancy! At least, maybe pregnancy (and possibly the other stuff, but who knows). In this exclusive clip from "Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor" (airs. Thurs. March 20 at 10:00 p.m. on TLC), Chelsey confesses she might have a bun in the oven. Drink up, Jared!

'Party Down South' producer talks 'Jersey Shore,' 'Bachelor'

SallyAnn Salsano knows what works - and what doesn't
