Top Moments of the Decade

Barack Obama

What were our top moments of the decade? Check out the video below to see just a few of them: Kelly Clarkson, a sweet, plainspoken waitress from Burleson, Texas, captured our hearts when she won the inaugural season of a little singing competition called American Idol. The Sopranos had a habit of killing off its main characters, but we gasped when "nice wise guy" Silvio whacked the beleaguered Adriana. And back in the real world, Barack Obama made history as the first African-American president of the United States.

Check out these top moments in the video after the jump, and then see many more in our Best of 2009 and Best of the Decade sections.

Desperate Housewives: Drea de Matteo on Wisteria Lane's New Mystery

Drea de Matteo, Desperate Housewives

Drea de Matteo's addition to the cast of Desperate Housewives is somewhat of a cosmic punchline for the actress.

First of all, get this: She's a huge fan of the show. "For some reason, the real prissy homemakers appeal to me the most," she says, singling out Marcia Cross' Bree and Dana Delany's Katherine. "I'm obsessed with their wardrobes."

Plus, she remembers a time when she considered giving up acting altogether and wished she could just get a gig on a long-running TV show, and specifically mentioned Housewives. Lastly, when her longtime boyfriend, musician Shooter Jennings, proposed to de Matteo recently, the marriage-averse actress replied... read more

Mega Buzz on Grey's, Heroes, 90210, Lost and More!

T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy), Greg Grunberg (Heroes) and Jeremy Davies (Lost)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com

Is there anything to report about the new season of Grey's Anatomy? — Jenny
MATT: I know there's been talk that Season 6 might pick up a few months after the nail-biting May finale, but sources tell me that's not the case. In fact, the Sept. 24 opener will find both Izzie and disfigured George still coding — and as anyone following the headlines can tell you, T.R. Knight isn't returning to the cast. Over the two-hour premiere, watch for the outcome of this traumatic scenario to weigh heavily on a lot of people — including at least one doctor whose reaction you may have taken for granted. (See related casting exclusive.)

Heroes' Greg Grunberg has hinted that Matt's super-powered son may not have gotten all his powers from daddy. Is Janice a hero, too? — Curtis
TIM: Maybe so, says ... read more

Mega Buzz on NCIS, 90210, Ghost Whisperer and More!

Cote de Pablo (NCIS), Jessica Lowndes (90210) and Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer)

Senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions. As always, you may direct your own spoilery needs to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Is Ziva's father going to make a return on NCIS this season? — Morgan
Matt:
My moles at the CBS hit may be tight-lipped about the Ziva-Tony romance (a very popular topic in the Buzz box), but on this matter they did let slip some intel: Eli David, played by Michael "What a Feeling" Nouri, will be seen again, and possibly before the end of this season.

The gay character on 90210 has to be the guy who starred in the musical with Annie. He's tall, handsome, well-dressed and —mannered, and he loves musical theater ... hello! — Jason
I'm thinking that it's Ty, Annie's Spring Awakening costar. We haven't seen him in forever. — Kathryn
Mickey:
Rampant trading in gay stereotypes aside, this is an educated guess. But if Ty does come out of the closet ... read more
