14. Worst Name-Dropping: Country diva Juliette exerts her power over reality star Layla by switching sets and stealing her duet with boyfriend Will on Nashville. In return, Layla anonymously calls TMZ and reveals that it was Juliette who broke up the marriage of one of the country's most well-known couples. At least this will make good material for a song?
13. Worst Missed Connection: Yes, everyone knows that Simon Cowell loves to be mean. But the acerbic judge accidentally takes it too...
Rainn Wilson has signed on for his first post-Office gig. The actor has landed the title role in CBS' drama pilot Backstrom, TVGuide.com has learned.
The NFL may be in a lockout, but some of the league's biggest stars joined Taylor Lautner to spoof the situation for Funny or Die.
In a mock movie trailer for Field of Dreams 2: Lockout, Lautner plays an Iowa corn farmer who, just like Kevin Costner in the original film, hears a voice say, "If you build it, they will come." After creating a football field in the middle of the farm, real NFL players including Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis, Shawne Merriman, DeSean Jackson and Dwight Dweeney show up for the big game.

24's Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and less-than-plausible story lines have always had an uneasy alliance. Every really bad day of Bauer's packs so many plot devices into 24 hours it's hard to always keep things fresh. Here are a few of the most ridiculous plotlines the writers of the Fox series conjured up over eight seasons:
24 Boss: There will be no "happily ever after" for Jack Bauer
Teri Bauer Gets Amnesia (Day 1)
After being kidnapped and...
After eight very long days, the many presidents featured on 24 are a complicated bunch. From David Palmer to Charles Logan to Allison Taylor, the drama series has created some of the most multilayered leaders ever to occupy the White House. We look back on the presidents who led the free world in which Jack Bauer allows us to live.
President David Palmer, Day 2 and Day 3
Presidential candidate Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) survived an assassination attempt against him in Day 1 to take over the White House in Day 2. As president, Palmer brought Jack...

After watching the promo for the next episode of Grey's, I must ask: Is there anything for Mer-Der fans to look forward to? You know, other than three women lying in Mer's bed while Derek lives downstairs? — Karen
Matt: Well when you phrase it like that, you make me think that Melissa George's debut this week as Sadie, a college pal of Meredith's, will only further muddle things for the would-be Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd. But maybe not. Consider this: Sadie's arrival will prompt Cristina — who feels displaced by her BFF's old BFF — to be a better sounding board for Derek, and that just might ease the tension in the lovebirds' overcrowded nest. Oh, and speaking of Xtina: Kevin McKidd (Owen) is now a series regular.
When does the next volume start on Heroes? Because "Villains" is turning the show into Heroezzz. (No offense, Tim Kring.) — Charles
Mickey: I hear you, Charles. At this point, I don't even care who is good and who is evil and/or how they got there; I'm just ready to move on. The next volume, titled "Fugitives" and said to be inspired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, begins in January. It centers on a character called ...

Any TV drama that deals with military heroism must eventually also confront the enormity of tragic loss. With that said, consider this a spoiler alert regarding the next two episodes (tonight and Nov. 13) of CBS underrated The Unit, in which this covert Special Forces team takes a fateful, fatal hit.The network and the shows production studio have been urgently promoting these episodes (so much for keeping this twist under wraps), and while theyre uneven, theyre very much worth watching. Theres undeniably a bit of a sweeps stunting at play here, but Im willing to take executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) at his word when he says, in a cover letter attached to the screeners I received, For three years, weve wanted to tell this story, but couldnt until now. We needed the audience to know and love our characters for it to have the impact we knew it deserved. He adds: In the current war we are fighting, military dea...
I had forgotten that the hair/makeup trailer is such a crossroads until my cousin Phillip flew back to L.A. with me from Dallas. Raising three daughters he separated from their mother because he "always had his eyes open for what might be around the corner" and orphaned at the age of 14, he's a devoted father, saving for his three daughters' futures. He gets up in the morning at 5:30 am, seven days a week, to take a bus to his job at a milk plant. He'd like to buy a house one day where all his girls can have their own rooms "Even after they're grown they can live with their dad." He stresses education and is ever-protective of his girls always gives them the practical advice, like, "Don't let the boys talk you out of your panties." Phillip has muscle-bound arms and the sweet smile of a teenager that belies the fact that he is about to hit 40. He takes two weeks off every year but never really goes anywhere. Wanting to do something for himself for a change...
