Our top moments of the week:
15. Oddest Return: Jerry Seinfeld has kept plenty busy since the end of his TV show in 1998. However, it's still a little odd to see him return to stand-up on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno basically doing the same comedy he's been doing his whole career with some minor chronologically required updates (America's obesity problem! Push-up bras!). Aren't there struggling up-and-coming stand-up comics who need his coveted spot more? Also, isn't this precisely why the...
The title of this week's pivotal episode of FX's Justified (Tuesday, 10/9c), "Get Drew," may evoke memories of an Elmore Leonard classic (Get Shorty), but Justified is a modern classic in its own right, honoring Leonard's spirit with wit and suspenseful grit and twisty plotting that just won't let up. That's especially true after last week's revelation of the identity of the long-missing and much-sought-after Drew Thompson, who sets off a multi-faceted manhunt.
Johnny Weir is revolting, which may actually work in his favor on Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.
On the Food Network competition series kicking off Sunday at 9/8c, the world champion figure skater once again neglects to play it safe and listen to his coach's advice. He joins TLC's Chilli, Dean McDermott and Cornelia Guest on Team Guy Fieri, who are vying against Team Rachael Ray's Gilbert Gottfried, Kathy Najimy, Hines Ward and Carnie Wilson. At the end of the competition, the winner will earn bragging rights as well as a $50,000 grand prize for the charity of their choice.
Hold on to your ears, Law & Order: SVU fans. Loud-mouthed comedian Gilbert Gottfried — known primarily for naughty Comedy Central roasts, voicing the obnoxious parrot in Disney's Aladdin and getting fired as the Aflac duck — is bringing his 'beloved' voice to the long-running NBC procedural.
Executive producer Warren Leight explains...
Marilyn Manson, Josh Saviano, The Wonder Years
TV Guide Network is taking a look at 25 of Hollywood's urban legends in a new special.
Was a dead munchkin hanging in the background of a Wizard of Oz scene? Did Marilyn Manson play Paul Pfeiffer on Wonder Years? And one of the all-time enduring questions: Did a combination of Pop Rocks and soda kill Mikey from the Life cereal commercials?
Always think before you tweet. New York Rep. Anthony Weiner learned that the hard way (no pun intended) this past week after accidentally tweeting lewd photos of himself, denying it before finally admitting it in a rambling and odd press conference Monday. But Weiner isn't the only public figure, let alone politico, to commit a Twitter faux pas. Behold nine other celeb tweeting gaffes.

One day after being fired as the voice of Aflac's mascot, Gilbert Gottfried issued an apology for making offensive jokes about the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan that has claimed hundreds of lives.

A few nights ago, when Modern Family's Cameron-as-Fizbo tried on a court jester's shtick for size, Mitchell offered this dour rejoinder: "There goes the theory that an English accent makes everyone sound smart." I don't think it's Anglophile snobbery that has me celebrating the return of Being Human to BBC America's lineup Saturday night, while being left as cold as a cadaver by Syfy's spotty remake. The original is simply a much better show.

Better acted, for sure, and it's not just a matter of dialect. There's an intensity to the British original, even when it's going for droll humor, that's lacking in the shrill and...

Cheers to TV's most unexpectedly grade-A treat: Z-Rock. If This is Spinal Tap and Curb Your Enthusiasm had a baby, it'd look like IFC's semi-improvised comedy series about Z02, a real-life Brooklyn metal band by night who pay the bills by playing kids' music as the Z Brothers by day. The power trio's members are surprisingly adept actors, and they're ably supported by stand-up Lynne Koplitz as their foul-mouthed but loving manager she's like a sexier Susie Essman. Aptly, the guest list includes comics (Joan Rivers, Gilbert Gottfried) and rockers (just wait til you see the Z Brothers play a bris with Blues Traveler's John Popper). In short, Z rocks!
