With a repertoire including Merv Griffin, Steve McQueen, the Monkees and the Brady Bunch, Gene Trindl holds the record for shooting TV Guide Magazine covers — more than 200 of them! We went behind the lens with the late photographer's grandson, Skylar Schofield, who calls Trindl's impressive roster of cover images his "ultimate résumé."
Steve McQueen, Wanted: Dead or Alive, May 30, 1959
"He never really watched too much television, because it was weird for him to see his subjects [as stars], even though that's what he was trying to capture," says Schofield of legendary Hollywood macho man Steve McQueen (posing on our cover for his hit Western Wanted: Dead or Alive). "He really respected people who were true craftsmen."
After a disastrous and humiliating turn on Celebrity Apprentice in 2011, former Partridge Family star David Cassidy has gone from first fired to recently hired. But is his new role on the Feb. 27 episode of CBS' CSI — he plays a desperate plastic surgery-obsessed has-been — another slap in the face? The former teen heartthrob, now 62, doesn't see it that way...
Former Partridge Family teen idol David Cassidy's 2011 stint on The Celebrity Apprentice wasn't exactly boast-worthy, but it did get the guy noticed by CBS.
Our top moments of the week:
14. Saddest Confession: On The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki tears up and tells Tamra that she and her husband Donn are having "major issues" and that she's been praying every night for them to come together. She explains that they only talk to each other a few times a month and haven't had sex in almost two years, but feels conflicted because God hates divorce. Of all the marriages that have fallen victim to the Real Housewives franchise (and there have been a lot), this is one we wish hadn't.

So do TV viewers during the Great Recession like to watch shows about benevolent rich folks or those aiming to get rich?
Secret Millionaire, premiering on ABC more than two years after Fox dumped it, attracted some 12.6 million haves and have-nots at 8/7c Sunday, boosting the two shows that followed it. An hour later, Undercover Boss lured 10.9 million on CBS, according to preliminary Nielsen figures.
The Celebrity Apprentice
Country star John Rich, rapper Lil Jon and actor Gary Busey gather outside a Manhattan pizza joint with a giant inflatable guitar and a handful of fliers. Dressed as a cross between a deranged carnival worker and late-night televangelist, Busey — the natural barker of the bunch — assumes the identity of the "Pepperoni Profit" [sic], screaming at unsuspecting tourists to "stop the bus, turn off the key and get your butts in here!" The ones who oblige him score a slice — and a front-row seat to the spectacle of this season's first Celebrity Apprentice challenge, debuting tonight with a two-hour premiere.
David Cassidy has pleaded no contest to driving under the influence on a Florida Turnpike last November.

Shirley Jones, David Cassidy
I think I love this: Shirley Jones will guest-star on ABC Family's Ruby & the Rockits, playing mother to David and Patrick Cassidy, her real-life stepson and son, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Shaun Cassidy, another of the actress' sons with the late actor Jack Cassidy, executive-produces the new comedy. He joked that Jones got the role the old-fashioned way.
