Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki
Supernatural (Friday, 9/8c, The CW)
It's a mad, mad, meta world when the Winchester brothers are transported to a parallel universe where Sam and Dean become their actual alter egos: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, stars of a TV show called Supernatural. Even weirder, Castiel turns out to be a Twitter fiend whose real name is Misha Collins, and so on. Sounds like a fun change of pace from the recent grim tidings. Meanwhile, in the same...
As I first reported last week, Oscar host and nominee James Franco is in talks with the Three's Company estate holders about developing the 1977-84 sitcom into a feature film and Broadway play — possibly with a dramatic take, after presenting this unusual concept as ...
James Franco and Anne Hathaway
To critics claiming that picking James Franco and Anne Hathaway to host this year's Academy Awards is shameless pandering to young audiences, Franco has only one thing to say: "Duh!"
Will it finally happen this time? General Hospital heroine Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) — whose past wedding days have all been disasters — is scheduled to marry crime lord Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) on February 18. Right now things don't look so good for the duo. Sonny is being haunted by prophetic dreams that something will go heinously wrong at the ceremony. His venomous ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright) plans to ruin the big day by revealing that Brenda has a secret past — and a child — with Sonny's son Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). And supervillain The Balkan (Daniel Benzali) also intends to be a party pooper — he's all set to kidnap the bride. Despite all this, head writer Bob Guza assures us that vows will be exchanged...
After having fun at the Sundance Film Fest with a Three's Company-themed art installation, unpredictable Oscar host and Lead Actor nominee James Franco is getting more serious about plans for his favorite '70s sitcom.
"When we were accepted to Sundance, we didn't have the series rights, but then the Three's Company estate contacted us," James reports. "At first they were opposed to it, but then ...

Our top moments of the week:
11. Best Excuse for Facial Hair: White Collar mixes style and substance for its flashback episode. Fans finally learn how Neal met his love, Kate, and future partner-in-crime(-solving) Peter. But much more importantly, we get to see Tim DeKay rock a mustache! Your move, Bradley Whitford.
10. Cheapest False Alarm: Remember all those promos for that catastrophic tsunami on Hawaii Five-0? "This is one wave you don't want to ride," CBS warned us. Yeah, it never happened. It turns out the tsunami warning signal was a fake, instigated by a hacker who wanted to create an evacuation as a diversion. We haven't felt this cheated since Rob Lowe "died" for a hot second on Brothers & Sisters (the first time).
9. Worst Display of Emotion: The dysfunction between Sammi and Ronnie reaches a new high...
