Survivor: Nicaragua's Tyrone Davis wants to clarify that no, he wasn't voted home because of the chicken. The Los Angeles fire captain, 42, found himself in a debate after the commingling of the older and younger tribes when he argued against killing one of his new tribe's birds.

The most inspirational thing on TV this week was on the news, for a change.
The rescue of 33 Chilean miners, first trapped underground more than two months ago, kept viewers transfixed throughout the night and most of Wednesday after the first was brought to the surface Tuesday. Coverage of the miners' gleeful reunions with loved ones dominated...
Kanye West, Saturday Night Live
Kanye West's Saturday Night Live appearance had everything — a pristine all-white set, 30 dancers, and one of West's most brilliant, emotive performances. But one thing was missing: A verse in his first song, "Power" dissing the entire show.
The original version of the song includes the line...
William Shatner seems perfectly happy to be where he is.
At the moment, that's starring in CBS' new Twitter-based sitcom, $#*! My Dad Says, in which he plays the irascible but ultimately decent — and maybe lonely — lead character.
But it's also sitting in a futuristic treehouse-like structure, set in the middle of San Diego's Comic-Con, where he's doing interviews about the show and his life. And he's expressing no regrets.

If you thought MTV might confront the Kanye vs. Taylor elephant in the auditorium at Sunday's VMAs, you were probably disappointed.
Who rocked the VMAs white — not red — carpet?
But Kanye West and Taylor Swift still faced off at MTV's Video Music Awards Sunday — never sharing a stage — with their performances. And opinions were intensely split about who was better.
Kanye West and Taylor Swift
We're sure MTV would love to include some kind of stunning make-up session between Kanye West and Taylor Swift at Sunday's VMAs. Maybe it could involve Justin Bieber, whose presence makes everything just a little funnier. Or Lady Gaga, who sprinkles shock everywhere she goes.
Check out the most memorable VMA moments

It's been a great week for quitters. Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater went out big by quitting over his plane's intercom, grabbing some beers, and sliding down the emergency chute. Then a young woman's quitting via dry erase board made the online rounds, though she turned out to be an actress named Elyse Porterfield (whose name also sounds too good to be true). In honor of these disgruntled employees, real and fake, we salute eight of TV's greatest quitters — real, fake, and both.
8. Amanda Bynes: The All That and Amanda Show star announced in June that she was retiring from acting at the age of 24. A month later she changed her mind and announced her...
