Candace Cameron-Bure, Mark Ballas
It's getting to be crunch time on Dancing with the Stars, with only six pairs remaining in the competition heading into Monday's episode, when each pair will perform two dances. And the stars are starting to feel the pressure.
When TVGuide.com caught up with Candace Cameron Bure last Thursday, she was trying to remain calm about this week's rehearsal schedule. "This week is going to go incredibly quickly, with learning two dances. I'm trying not to freak out about it," she said. "Mark [Ballas, her pro partner] said, 'There's no reason to just yet.' He's like, 'On Sunday if you're not good, I'll tell you to start freaking out. But don't freak out yet.'"
May the fourth be with you.

Still, with no other wide-release movie to compete with, the 2014 sequel still easily landed at No. 1 for the weekend.

Joel McHale, Barack Obama
Apparently President Obama's appearance on Between Two Ferns earlier this year was just a warm-up for his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this weekend.
Obama once again demonstrated his natural knack for comedy with a self-deprecating speech at Saturday's event, while also managing to work in a few not-so-subtle digs at his political rivals.
On Wednesday's episode of Survivor: Cagayan, Jefra Bland essentially gave up a shot at a million dollars for a margarita and guacamole. Was it worth it?
"Sitting at home watching from the couch, I'd always told myself, I would never bet on food," Jefra confessed to TVGuide.com. "But being there and being so hungry in the moment, as soon as Jeff [Probst] uncovered the quesadilla and the guacamole, I couldn't resist. ... Looking back now, finishing seventh, obviously I wish I would have saved the money and drew for the rocks."
