It's Hamster Time! That guilty summer pleasure Big Brother returns Thursday for its 14th season and CBS promises it will be bigger than ever — at least by head count. Expect 12 new players to participate in the game, as well as four returning audience faves. Who will take home the $500,000 grand prize? Who will fall in love? Who will be the next Chima and have a batcrap-crazy meltdown? TV Guide Magazine sat for a chat with each the newbies before they went into the house but the drama started even sooner than expected. At the eleventh hour, one of the houseguests we met — Mike Baxter, a 23-year-old bartender from Boston — suddenly backed out of the show. Alas, we can't tell you much about his replacement Joe Arvin, a 41-year-old chef from Schererville, Indiana, but here's hot dish on the other 11. Let's get this party started!
When she's not playing the totally brill middle child Alex on Modern Family, Ariel Winter is very busy mouthing off. In animation, that is. She's the voice of Gretchen the Fireside Girl on Disney's Phineas and Ferb and Robin (yes, a female Robin!) in Warner Bros. upcoming animated flick Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1. On Friday June 29 she's back as the mermaid Marina on Disney Channel's preschool smash Jake and the Never Land Pirates (9am/8c). TV Guide Magazine chatted with the delightful Winter about her toon-filled life.
Apparently, we had nothing to worry about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the daytime TV community last month when it was announced that the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards would air Saturday, June 23 on cable channel HLN (8/7c). Up until then, it was widely believed the awards — which no network wanted — would go untelevised or end up on the Internet. But Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, tells TV Guide Magazine that he "always had two backup plans in place — including one with Reelz — if the HLN [deal] didn't happen. We would never have let these awards leave television."
