This is how confident we were that Tony Lucca would advance through this week's battle rounds on The Voice: We got a hold of him Monday morning — just as he'd completed a weekend performing on a rock cruise — to ask him if his missing facial hair would make a comeback in subsequent episodes, what really happened after Christina Aguilera failed to recognize her former fellow Mouseketeer ("Wake up," Christina!), and whether or not coach Adam Levine is actually a loveable, cocky rock star (or just a cocky rock star) when the cameras aren't rolling.
And, of course we grilled him all about MMC (that's Mickey Mouse Club for those who didn't grow up in the 90s), from dating Keri Russell and making Britney Spears swoon, to his affection for the soap-within-the-show Emerald Cove. In our minds, there's no doubt that it was the Mouse Club faithful that helped send "Tony Lucca" trending on Twitter immediately after he appeared on The Voice's second season premiere. (And — spoiler alert — we were
Our top moments of the week:
13. Lamest Dirty Talk: It took time, but The Bachelor's Jamie finally decides she's going to kiss Ben. Despite being a self-proclaimed prude, Jamie straddles Ben and tells him exactly how she is going to plant one on him. But she doesn't stop there. She keeps flapping her gums, even while the two are kissing, which just makes Ben laugh. If first kisses say it all, then it seems clear why Jamie didn't get a rose.

Fringe may be moving to Fridays, but Fox says the show is far from over.
"I beg you not to write the eulogy prematurely," Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly said Tuesday at the Television Critics Association's winter preview. "It's a show we're passionate about .... I really hope those fans would stick with it... I'd be heartbroken if it went away."

Reilly also said that if viewers who watched the show on Thursdays followed the show to Fridays, it would be enough. "It would significantly improve our Friday night in terms of numbers and quality. ... If our fans stick with us, the show could stay on the air for many years."

David Cross, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret
In IFC's The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, David Cross plays a man whose little white lies snowball to such a degree that in one week he's gone from meek office temp to a criminal on trial for "funding a terrorist organization, possession of biological weapons, possession of child pornography, blackmail, espionage..."
From Jennifer Garner in Alias to Evangeline Lilly on Lost, executive producer J.J. Abrams knows how to empower his leading ladies. His next heroine? Gugu Mbatha-Raw, the star of NBC's new spy series Undercovers.
"J.J. has written such a wonderful part, and he's known for writing great parts for women," Raw says. There's also Keri Russell, who played the sensitive college girl in Felicity, and Anna Torv, who will command not one, but two roles this season on Fringe.
As Felicity, the sensitive college girl forever caught between two men in The WB series of the same name, Keri Russell became known for dramatic, breathless hellos, rather than breathless laughter. But Will Arnett, her co-star in Fox's new comedy Running Wilde, says Russell is not only funny, she was at the top of their wish list to play his opposites-attract love interest.
"That's a bald-faced...
Keri Russell, Maggie Q
