"It's The Rosie Show!" shouts a blonde lady sitting at a desk in the middle of the studio formerly known for hosting Oprah Winfrey's talk show during the Monday premiere of Rosie O'Donnell's latest foray into the genre. We cut to Rosie on a stage, doing stand-up that's eerily reminiscent of the early Seinfeld days. Except that jokes about puffy shirts and Halloween candy are funny, and this is not.

After her first week's performance, judge Carrie Anne Inaba described her dance as "magical" and "perfection." Since then, Phillips and partner Tony Dovolani have received the season's first 9 out of 10 score from the judges. Last week was particularly poignant for the singer: teams were required to express the most memorable year of their lives through dance. Phillips chose 1990's "Hold On," the hit single from her former band Wilson Phillips' debut album -- a markedly significant turning point in her life. "I had a lot of abandonment issues. I ended up turning to drugs and alcohol as a teenager," she says.

"A few months ago I got a phone call saying that Jennifer [Aniston] and Marta [Kauffman, co-creator of Friends] were doing the project and I immediately said yes," says Tripplehorn. "When we started filming, I realized that I hadn't had a mammogram in two years. So I rushed out to get one immediately. My wish is that when people see this film, it will remind them to do the same."
