Missy Peregrym, Rookie Blue
In the young-cops drama Rookie Blue (airing tonight, 9/8c on ABC), Missy Peregrym plays a wet-behind-the-ears officer trying to make a name for herself on the force. But the 28-year-old actress has already made an impression on TV fans, turning up in such diverse series as Smallville and Life as We Know It. We asked Peregrym for her thoughts on Rookie's Andy McNally and her two other most notable roles, on Heroes and the much-missed Reaper.
Turning Blue "It's a rare thing to have a female lead on a TV show. I was excited to play...
Acrophobes, beware! The new vertigo-inducing quiz show Downfall challenges players to answer questions before their potential prizes — and possibly even themselves — are sent crashing over the edge of an L.A. high-rise on a massive conveyor belt. Host Chris Jericho tells us about the high points of tonight's season premiere, airing at 9/8c on ABC...
When Kid Rock broke through in 1998 with his rap-rock masterpiece Devil Without a Cause, few would have imagined the hard-partying son of Detroit would one day be embraced by a country-music audience — let alone host the CMT Music Awards, which honors the best in country music videos. But that's what he's doing Wednesday at 8/7c.
Are We There Yet?
Terry Crews has some news about single guys: "They're pretty selfish!" laughs the NFL pro—turned—actor, who tackles the role of newlywed Nick Kingston-Persons in Are We There Yet?, a new TBS sitcom based on the 2005 movie about a bachelor's road trip with his girlfriend's kids premiering Wednesday at 9/8c on TBS...
Bring out your dead!
Following last season’s departure of Khandi Alexander from CSI: Miami (Mondays at 9 pm/ET, CBS), there’s a new medical examiner getting her hands bloody in Miami: Megalyn Echikunwoke’s Dr. Tara Price.
Olivia Munn, Attack of the Show!
To the unhip — or those of a certain age — G4's Attack of the Show! (Mondays at 7 and 10 pm/ET, G4) may sound like a forgotten B-movie. But to video-gamers, techies and fanboys, the nightly live newsmagazine hosted by Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn is required viewing. "It's like Regis & Kelly, but for males 18-34," Munn says. "We talk about everything that a guy that age cares about: pop culture, the Internet, video games." No doubt many of those guys are also tuning in for Munn, a 26-year-old with model looks who will do nearly anything for a laugh — including eating a dangling hot dog or riding a gyrating chair. We spoke to Munn, just days after she made a splash at Comic-Con.
TV Guide: How was Comic-Con?
Olivia Munn: The fan support is beyond me sometimes. At Comic-Con, I become Justin Timberlak
Tommy Lee, Battleground Earth
Tommy Lee saving the planet? "It's not your normal thing to go cruising around doing, especially for a guy like me," laughs Mötley Crüe's wildman drummer, who stars alongside rapper Ludacris in the new Battleground Earth (Sundays at 10 pm/ET, Planet Green), a humorous yet educational competition series about the guys' efforts to go green.
TV Guide: Why'd you get involved with Battleground Earth?
Tommy Lee: I swore I wouldn't do another reality show, because I just did 'em [NBC's Tommy Lee Goes to College and CBS's Rock Star: Supernova]... but this is way more like a documentary. It's informative, educational, and it was another chance for me to learn about all this green stuff. Because to tell you the truth, bro... I only knew a little bit about this or that.
TV Guide: Can you sum up the show?
Haylie Duff, Legally Blonde: The Search for thr Next Elle Woods
It's a busy week for Haylie Duff. Perhaps best known as Summer in the 2004 comedy Napoleon Dynamite, and as the older sister of Hilary, the stage and screen actress mentors aspiring theater stars in MTV's new reality series, Legally Blonde: The Search for the Next Elle Woods (Mondays at 10 pm/ET). She also starred in Spike's hunted-in-the-forest thriller Backwoods Sunday.
TV Guide: Why'd you get involved with Elle?
Haylie Duff: I had done a Broadway show [Hairspray] and it was one of the best experiences of my life. It molded me into who I am as a performer…. I'm there to tell [the contestants] that all the times they want to cry and give up are worth it, because I've been there, too.
TV Guide: What can you tell us about Backwoods? It sounds like an updated D
Bear Grylls, Man vs. Wild
Bear Grylls has survived everything from Saharan heat to Icelandic cold. In tonight’s first new episode of Man vs. Wild (Fridays at 9 pm/ET, Discovery) since December, he endures a stomach-turning trek through Zambia. We talked to the adventurer about hanging tough in Africa.
TV Guide: How was Zambia?
Bear Grylls: It was wild. We were [in] probably the most remote part of Africa and I got bad heatstroke. I had eaten a bad snake and got quite dehydrated.
TV Guide: A bad snake?
Grylls: As opposed to "a good snake" to eat? I had eaten a live snake and it had its revenge by crapping down my throat as I ate it. I had really bad diarrhea the next day. I was doing a big climb on a 120-foot cliff face when I suddenly realized I've got to go. I remember hangin
Tom and Ray Magliozzi, Nova
You may not know the faces, but if you’re a fan of NPR’s automotive call-in show “Car Talk,” you certainly know the voices (and the frequent laughs) of Tom and Ray Magliozzi, aka Click and Clack, the Tappets. The boisterous brothers — who’ll get animated this summer for their very own PBS cartoon following their off-the-air lives — make a rare TV appearance on tonight’s Nova (8 pm/ET, PBS) to look at the “car of the future” and what will power it: ethanol, hydrogen or electricity.
TVGuide.com: You do so little TV. What attracted you to this installment of Nova?
Ray Magliozzi: The idea of the car of the future intrigues us. I was promised by reading Popular Science and
