Randy Jackson, Briston Maroney
Randy Jackson returns to American Idol tonight in his new role as mentor, guiding the contestants through Rush Week. The 31 remaining hopefuls will cycle through Jackson's workshop, a series of classes focusing on vocal skills, styling and social-media training. Former finalists Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtry will also be around to field questions. Idol's top dawg breaks down the intensive two-day process.
TV Guide Magazine: Why did you want to come back for this workshop?
Jackson: Being a judge, you don't have that closeness with the kids. I know they have a trillion questions, so I really wanted to prepare them for the show and make it informative. You've got all these people at the top of their fields who want to help. This is for the rest of the [contestants'] lives, so they have to take advantage. It's like a college-prep course, and I'm the dean!

To say it's been a rough zombie apocalypse for The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) would be like saying the polar vortex is making things a little chilly. Over the last three and a half seasons, he has suffered the deaths of his wife and best friend and lost track of his infant daughter as well as the group of survivors he had sworn to protect. On a late-August day in Senoia, Georgia, while filming...

Survivor hits the beach this February for its 28th season, pitting 18 brand-new castaways against each other in a Brains vs. Beauty vs. Brawn twist. The CBS reality staple returns to the Cagayan province of the Philippines and is the first season without any returning players since 2012's One World.
Although the contestants are split into three distinct groups, each tribe contains a player with a significant sports background. David Samson, current president of the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team, will compete on the Brains Tribe, while former NBA star Cliff Robinson, who spent the majority of his 18-year career playing for the Portland Trail Blazers, joins the Brawn Tribe. Morgan McLeod, 21, a member of the Beauty Tribe, was selected to the San Francisco 49ers cheerleading squad when she was still in high school.
A professional poker player, horse trainer, nuclear engineer and two police officers are also featured in this year's cast.
Survivor premieres with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 8/7c on CBS.
Check out the full tribe list below. Do you think the brains, beauty or brawn have the advantage?
