So, this all-star season is actually shaping up to be some kind of awesome, at least when it comes to the level of dancing we're seeing. Of course, with the dancing being pretty impressive across the board (with a few exceptions), this season may be more of a popularity contest than usual -- and great choreography is going to be more important than ever. We've already seen some stinker routines, and there's only been one week of dancing -- so I hope that the stars aren't the only ones committed to bringing their A games to the floor.
The stars get serious after Pamela Anderson's exit
There are tears, threats, secrets revealed and nasty comments a-plenty
Um, wow. That's really about all I can muster after watching the first part of the three part "The Real Housewives of Jersey Shore" reunion, which is so far beyond crazy that I almost expected it to end in a spray of bullets or a cult suicide. With everyone so completely past sane, the unfortunate side effect is that there's almost no one to side with without feeling a little crazy yourself. Let's face it -- when Teresa seems relatively balanced, you know the situation is dire.
It's time for summer vacation in the Hamptons, and Emily is on the warpath
The curse is broken on Storybrooke, but will there be consequences?
So, after waiting all summer for "Once Upon A Time" to return to the air, fans of the show were rubbing their hands together in glee at what seemed like an inevitable plot payoff on tonight's season premiere. When we left the show, the curse over Storybrooke had been lifted, and all our fairy tale favorites were no longer blinded to their true selves -- or evil queen Regina (Lana Parrilla)'s role in that unpleasantness. So yeah, she's gonna get her what for and how, right? Well, kind of.
Though 2 stars are villainous fun, the promise of future plotlines is unclear
Given that “666 Park Avenue” is centered on such a fundamentally monochrome battle of good versus evil (The demon’s sneaky emissaries! Pitiful, weak-willed humans!), it seems downright wrong to feel wishy-washy about the show. In the pilot, it doesn’t seem as if our main foursome has much tolerance for shades of grey, and I’m not talking about the book.
While 'Bridesmaids' comparisons are welcome, the stars didn't plan on them
With its female-centric storyline about a group of bawdy, fun-loving girls who compete in a collegiate a cappella singing competitions,"Pitch Perfect" invites comparisons to the equally irreverent "Bridesmaids" -- and judging from the posters for the movie, the comparison is entirely welcome, at least by the marketing department. But according to star Anna Kendrick, it was never intentional.
Why Jane and Lisbon may never open 'the locked box'
"The Mentalist" will be kicking off its fifth season with new episodes Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10:00 p.m., but that's not all that's new. It's a new night for the series, which will be up against stiff competition from NBC's Sunday night football and ABC's "666 Park Avenue." Star Robin Tunney isn't scared of no programming changes… oh, wait, maybe she is. I spoke to the actress at the TCA press tour and she discussed how she really feels about the new night, what she sees happening this season, and her feelings about Jane and Lisbon opening "the locked box."
It's a baby design challenge - complete with screaming dolls
Can you believe Ven is gone? I know; it's a huge relief. Anyway, the designers feel the same way, and not just because they were so sick of that fan/flower trick they wanted to yank their own teeth to distract themselves from the searing pain of seeing it over and over and OVER again. But Ven's timely exit has left them a little shaken -- and focused on getting to Lincoln Center. Christopher, however, is feeling confident, having won three challenges. I think Christopher may be getting a little smug, really.
The 'Twin Peaks' star still isn't ruling out a sitcom
If there's one thing you can expect from Kyle McLachlan, it's the unexpected. After establishing himself as a quirky leading man in films like "Blue Velvet," "Dune" and on TV shows like the cult classic "Twin Peaks," McLachlan had of late seemed destined to get into sitcoms with comedic turns in "How I Met Your Mother" and "Portlandia." But he's all business as a buttoned-up lawyer with a blue collar background in "Made in Jersey," premiering Sep. 28 at 9:00 p.m. on CBS. I talked to him during the recent TCA press tour about his latest role, why he isn't ruling out a sitcom and why his new series had reshoots to up the comedy quotient -- but not from his character.
A 'Mob Wives' star will come to blows with a 'Real Housewives' icon
