Dancing with the Stars
Last year, Dancing with the Stars reverted back to a one-night format for its 17th season, and as the reality competition heads into its 18th outing, even more big changes are on the way.
"When you're a show reaching its 18th season and its ninth year, I think you have to keep changing things up every so often just to make sure that the experience doesn't become too familiar," executive producer Conrad Green tells TVGuide.com. "It's spring, so it's time for a spring cleaning."
Check out nine big changes coming to Dancing with the Stars this season:
Veronica Mars fans who donated $35 or more to the Kickstarter campaign that financed the recent movie adaptation were promised a digital download of the film upon its release. Unfortunately for many fans, that didn't come to fruition.
On Friday night, many users took to Twitter to complain that the movie wasn't downloading properly from Flixster. Creator Rob Thomas responded promptly on the movie's Kickstarter page.
Gillian Anderson, Rachael Taylor
There's not a lot of time for character development in the pilot episode of Crisis, NBC's hostage thriller that premieres Sunday. The first hour is more preoccupied with immersing viewers into the action and getting a couple of major twists out of the way than delving into the depths of its major players.
But here's what we do know: A bus of children is taken hostage by a group of highly trained criminals while on a field trip. What do the bad guys want? It's unclear. But the children's parents all hold positions of power in Washington, D.C., ranging from the CEO of a major corporation (Gillian Anderson) to the president of the United States. There's also a nearly unrecognizable Dermot Mulroney playing a shlubby parent chaperone who's an embarrassment to his daughter, but who defies expectations when it comes to the events that unfold. And in a made-for-TV coincidence, the no-nonsense FBI agent in charge of the case, Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor), is the estranged sister of Anderson's character, Meg Fitch.
In a game that's all about forming alliances, J'Tia Taylor essentially blew up her own chances of winning in Week 2 of Survivor: Cagayan, when she dumped out all but a few grains of her tribe's rice in a moment of frustration. Despite the fact that she managed to (shockingly) not get voted out immediately afterwards, J'Tia's torch was finally snuffed in this week's episode.
"I have no regrets," J'Tia tells TVGuide.com of the rice-throwing incident. "It was kind of like my 'go big or go home' moment."
At this point, she's done both. Read our full exit interview with J'Tia to get her full explanation regarding the rice, and thoughts on how Jeff Probst may have influenced her tribe's decision to toss her on Wednesday's episode.
