This NatGeo show explores the weirdest of the weird
Know what a looner is? It's not a kind of eclipse; it's what some people call balloon fetishists. In this clip from "Taboo: Strange Passions" (premiering Sun. Aug. 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET), viewers will be invited to step inside the world of a balloon lover as well as several other people who've made quirky lifestyle choices.

Well, if you can get past the fact the guy loves balloons. Really, really loves them. Watch an exclusive clip below.
It's the big finale - which one of the final three will make the cut?
It's the big finale, and our final three will be competing for a chance at getting a character arc of seven episodes on "Glee." Considering that "The Glee Project" has been a lot more entertaining than "Glee" lately, I'm not sure if this is the big reward it used to be, but everyone seems excited about it nonetheless.
It wasn't all fun and games during season two
"The Glee Project" wraps up tonight as finalists Ali, Aylin and Blake do their best to win over "Glee" mastermind Ryan Murphy in the season two finale. The good news is that they'll be joined by all their eliminated castmates for the final video assignment, in which the GleePros go to prom. I had a chance to talk to a few finalists and a few of those returning for the finale during TCAs. Ali, Shanna, Aylin and Abraham were happy to talk about some low points (think meat dress), high points (almost everything else) and why they all became besties instead of rivals.
The 'Hotel Hell' makeover king says hotel owners are worse than restaurateurs
Gordon Ramsay takes on the task of berating and shaking up clueless hotel owners on "Hotel Hell" tonight (two night season premiere Mon. Aug. 13 at 8:00 p.m. PT, Tues. Aug. 14 at 8:00 p.m. PT; regular series time will be Mondays at 8:00 p.m.) Ramsay will travel to San Diego, California; Couer d’Alene, Idaho; Cambridge, New York; Milford, Pennsylvania; and Winter, Vermont to fix the bad, the bedbug-ridden and the downright stinky. In a conference call with journalists, Ramsay talked about what he likes (comfortable rooms), what he doesn't (scratchy towels) and why we all need to complain more.
Look for fan favorites Cheryl, Maksim, Kym and Chelsie
“Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” is gearing up for a big debut (Mon. Sept. 24, 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC), so fans will be pleased to see their favorite pros returning to the show along with the all-star celebs. Here are the star-studded pairings:
The family could be perfect for both hoarding and couponing shows
It's the ultimate smash-up: The latest episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" (Wed. 10 p.m. on TLC) features elements of both "Extreme Couponing" and "Hoarding: Buried Alive" as the family clears shelves of processed foods. We see TLC crossovers ahead! Though it's their way of saving money for Honey Boo Boo's pageant expenses, it certainly isn't helping their diet plans any. Watch the grocery store fun below.
What do you think of Honey Boo Boo's family?
Why is season 10 going haywire?
Okay, buckle up, "PR" fans -- this is apparently the episode that gets all hella lotta crazy, as Heidi Klum promised while promoting the season. Apparently Andrea's nighttime exodus is only the beginning of the melting down this season. I'm not sure if means we're in for lots of drama or just more stealth exiting from the show, which isn't dramatic so much as it's annoying. When you have clothes in your closet that are older than the designers calling you "immature," maybe that's a sign you blew it big time. Talking to you, Andrea.
Did you think it was a sign of the coming apocalypse or not?
Last night we were treated to a double-episode debut of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on TLC. And, as expected, plenty of people panned the show before it even aired, railing against it as a sign of the coming apocalypse or a new low bar set in television. But now that at least some of you have seen the show, what did you think?
Olympic swimmer follows his 'Peeing in the Pool' skit with star power
Ryan Lochte won us over (or just grossed us out) with his "Peeing in Pools" Funny or Die segment, and he's now followed it up with a performance opposite "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star Sir Patrick Stewart and Simon Pegg of 2009's "Star Trek" reboot. Stewart plays a Dickens-esque ticket scalper and, well, hilarity sort of ensues. While Lochte surely scored gold with his "Peeing in Pools" segment, this one isn't so crystal clear.
Stars ranging from Beth Ditto to Janice Dickinson are set to appear
