The day Stephen Colbert has been waiting for has (almost) arrived.
The funnyman's bid to have his name attached to the newest module of the international space station will draw to a close on Tuesday's edition of The Colbert Report, according to The Associated Press. Astronaut Sunita Williams will appear on the program as well.
Colbert urged fans to write in his last name in a NASA poll that allowed the public to vote for the new room's moniker. "Colbert" easily beat out NASA's suggestions, which included Serenity, Legacy, Earthrise and Venture.
Even so, NASA has the final word...
Like it or not, Miley Cyrus has star power.
The tween queen led Hannah Montana: The Movie to the top of the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $34 million and outrunning last week's champ, Fast & Furious, according to Variety. Hannah marks the second-best Easter weekend opening of all time.
Cyrus' flick set a few more records: It's the biggest April opening Disney has ever had, and the movie's Friday gross — $17.3 million — is the best opening day of any live-action, G-rated film in history.
Fast & Furious wasn't a big loser, though. It added $28.2 million to its overall gross ($118 million) and won the international box office. More impressively, the film earned more than $200 million worldwide ...
Greg Grunberg, Heroes
As Heroes enters its final three episodes of the season (Mondays at 9 pm/ET, NBC), the lines are (literally) being drawn for a multi-hero crossing of paths at the mysterious Coyote Sands. But will this creepy burial ground become the new Kirby Plaza?
"Everybody does come together at Coyote Sands," Greg Grunberg tells TVGuide.com. But after last week's reunion with the son he never knew he had, Grunberg's Matt Parkman will have a whole new set of priorities in the remaining episodes and beyond.
"The baby and his family is the reason Parkman is going to do something in the last episode that he may regret for the rest of his life," Grunberg says. "It's a huge story that we play out — something that only a guy who's been pushed and is desperate to save his family would ever do."
So how does the recently resurfaced Janice ...
Monica Potter, Eric McCormack
TNT will no longer put its trust in Trust Me.
The network pulled the plug on the freshman advertising drama Friday, according to The New York Times. The show, which starred Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh
as creative executives at an ad agency, received mediocre reviews for its premiere, which drew only 3.4 million viewers and lost half the audience of its The Closer lead-in. The following week, the numbers fell to 1.9 million viewers.

Problems with Britney Spears' Circus tour almost kept the show from going on in Vancouver, where the singer walked off stage during a sold-out concert.
Three songs into her performance Wednesday night, Spears left the stage while the GM Place audience sat in darkness for more than half an hour, according to the Vancouver Sun. A female voice told the booing crowd that the show was stopped because smoke was making everyone on stage uncomfortable, including Spears.
When the smoke cleared, Spears returned...
This American Idol results show featured tons of performances, including those of the crowd-pumping hip-hop variety and twangy country alike. But there was also a surprise blast from the past, an un-lip-synched group number and, of course, one of our Top 8 sang for his/her life. Who did America vote into the Bottom 3? And did the judges see fit to save someone from elimination? Let's find out.
