Our top moments of the week:
11. Best Arrival: Viewers say goodbye to 24/7 soccer coverage and hello to FX's new sister channel, FXX, in appropriate fashion. When FXX officially kicks off at 7 a.m. Monday morning, the reception begins to go out and the game footage interchanges with an image of a black leather couch. Suddenly, the black leather couch begins to move and out from the seams bursts a very hot and a very naked Danny DeVito in a classic It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia clip. Goal!
10. Most Surprising Twist: Mistresses' Karen thinks her nightmare is over after the wrongful-death lawsuit against her is dismissed, but then her medical license gets suspended for six months. Who ratted her out for sleeping with Thomas (not to mention helping him die)? Not Elizabeth, but her...
After initially ignoring the controversy generated by some Big Brother contestants' racist and homophobic comments on the show's 24-hour webcam feed, CBS is now taking further steps to distance itself from the contestants.

It's summertime and the living is easy...except on the hit game show Big Brother where lying and backstabbing are the order of the day and revenge is a dish best served cold — with a heaping side of slop! The 15th installment of the popular CBS franchise, hosted by Julie Chen, will return Wednesday (8/7c) with two new twists that are sure to stun the contestants and trigger seismic shifts in the game. Instead of two houseguests being nominated for eviction each week, the players will now nominate three. Plus, BB viewers will play a key role in the outcome of the game when they get to vote each week for the contestant they feel is playing the best game — the Big Brother MVP — and the winner will be given a special secret power.
TV Guide Magazine sat for a chat with the sequestered houseguests to get their juiciest deets just before they met each other and entered the game. Who plans to lie about her perfectly legal but highly unpopular occupation? Who is most likely to send the CBS censors into cardiac arrest? And who is related to a highly polarizing BB contestant from the past? Expect the unexpected!
