'The Vampire Diaries' recap: Is Damon in danger?

Bonnie and Jeremy, um, register for classes, wink, nudge

This was an episode of highs and lows, not just for the characters but for us. There were story lines and character developments that were lovely or tragic (or both) and which made perfect sense. And then, there was Caroline. But we'll get to her in a moment.

Listen: CulturePop No. 33 - 'Bering Sea Gold' star Zeke Tenhoff

We talk Alaska, dating, Emily and his upcoming 'diarrhea' moment

On "Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice" (Fri. at 10:00 p.m. on the Discovery Channel), Zeke Tenhoff is often too busy dealing with life or death issues to chat much. Even when his ex-girlfriend Emily Riedel wants to complain about her bad day, he usually has to tell her he's trying to fix something or stop the dredge from falling apart so she needs to zip it for a while. Guess what? Zeke's a lot of fun when he's not dealing with important issues that may make or break his ability to make a living or, you know, survive.

Exclusive clip: Nine try to exit a polygamous cult on 'Breaking the Faith'

Despite being convicted of sexual assault, the leader is still in control

"Breaking the Faith" (premiering Sun. Nov. 24 at 10:00 p.m. on TLC) isn't just about a group of young people trying to start new lives -- it's about how (and if) they do that after escaping the controversial Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a cult run by convicted felon Warren Jeffs. Jeffs is serving a life sentence for child sexual assault (he's said to have 78 wives, 24 of whom were underage when he married them), but he's reportedly still the president of the organization. In this exclusive clip, watch what happens one day before "extraction," which aptly describes what it takes to get people out of this cult.

Exclusive clip: Woman is stuck in a toilet on 'Untold Stories of the ER'

Guys, this really can happen when you don't put the seat down

Women complain all the time about how their husbands and boyfriends forget to put down the toilet seat. Now, they might finally have a really strong argument to get their menfolk to change. In this exclusive clip from "Untold Stories of the ER" (airing Fri. Nov. 22 at 10:00 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health), a woman is stuck on the john for 18 hours before paramedics are called. Eighteen. Hours. And why did this happen? Yup, her husband didn't put down the toilet seat.

'American Horror Story: Coven' recap: Will Queenie be loyal?

Kyle's luck finally changes and Marie Laveau gets a gift

I just don't get Zoe. One week, she oozes puppy-eyed empathy and love-kissy snuggles. The next, she's all about the killing and the zombie sex. Truth is, Killer Zoe is much more fun, don't you think?

She's here! Stevie Nicks arrives at 'American Horror Story: Coven'

The Fleetwood Mac diva is on the set and looking fine

We all knew that we absolutely needed Stevie Nicks to show up on "American Horror Story: Coven" (Wed. at 10:00 p.m. ET on FX) once we saw Lily Rabe's Misty Day character. Guess what? Show creator Ryan Murphy agreed, and now Stevie is on the set. Better yet, Murphy tweeted a picture, so we have proof positive that Nicks not only accepted the offer, she's there in her best witchy garb, ready to twirl and croak and curse and do whatever the role demands. How much do we love Stevie? Let us count the ways -- though quietly, and to ourselves. It's the only respectful way.

Exclusive clip: Feel the buggy buzz on 'Life Below Zero'

Just try not to itch while watching this

When Alaska warms up, it's stunningly beautiful. It's also riddled with mosquitos. In this exclusive clip from "Life Below Zero: Hungry Country" (airs Tues. Nov. 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Nat Geo), we see how Glen is faring with the bugs as he treks to the water to fish. If you think you know buggy, chances are you really don't. Warning: watching this clip will make you feel itchy, guaranteed.

Glen would stay home and a, but he's avoid the mosquito storm, but he's low on food. Living 65 miles from the nearest road, it's not like he can just pop over to Ralph's and pick up a few TV dinners, either. Fishing isn't the most efficient way for him to feed himself, but it might be the only way -- and, as we later learn, the fish aren't biting.

Clip: Check out Grandma's freak out on 'Top Gear'

It's a parking garage race that puts some seniors to the test

If you've ever taken your grandma for a drag race, the clip from this week's episode of "Top Gear" (airing on History Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 9:00 p.m.) will be no big deal to you. If not, you might enjoy the expressions of confusion and terror on the faces of these elderly women. Even better, you can laugh because you don't call these women Grandma. Probably.

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: Did Brandi bash Kyle?

Lunch at Carlton's isn't exactly friendly or civilized

So, many things happened on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" this week. We learned Yolanda "almost died" from Lyme disease, Lisa was more than thrilled to be voted off "Dancing with the Stars," and Brandi likes to dump guys before they can dump her. Really, that could have been enough to keep us more than mildly amused by our high strung, semi-crazy gals. But the true drama was reserved for a friendly, getting-to-know-you ladies' lunch at Carlton's. On the menu were catty comments, sly innuendoes and a liberal sprinkling of the C-word. Oh, and salad. You can't have a nice lady lunch in Beverly Hills without the salad.

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Maks joins the judges' table

It's the semifinals! Who will make the cut?

It's the semifinal! And Maksim Chmerkovskiy is back -- and sitting next to Len at the judges' table! This is so exciting. Do you think they'll elbow one another into a fist fight? Or maybe hug. Anything is possible with these two. Maybe they'll whack one another with paddles when they disagree on a score. Hey, don't rule it out!

Also, the couples have to perform two different dances to the same song tonight. I guess we ran out of money for the music budget? Just kidding. The song will be changed as well.
