Remember last fall's The Playboy Club and Charlie's Angels? Both shows quickly fizzled — but their failure didn't sour the networks on period dramas or remakes. Both trends are hot again as pilot season gets underway this winter.
Kelly Preston and John Travolta
Kelly Preston feels "amazing" after losing 39 pounds, she tells People.
"I lost 39 pounds, have more energy than I had 20 years ago — and I feel amazing," Preston says. "I'm going to be turning 50 next year ...
Derek Hough and Ricki Lake may have topped the Dancing with the Stars leader board last week, but Hough by no means thinks they're the ones to beat. "It felt great, but if you look, the scores were really close, so it's going to be a very competitive season," Hough tells TVGuide.com. "I know people are going to do really well next week and whatnot, and as long we can keep improving as far as her skill set, then I think we'll be in good shape." Not in good shape? His apparent inability to add their scores. Find out what the three-time champ has to say about this math skills, why Lake was never hung up on being Kirstie Alley, and why he chose to film a movie last season instead of going for a threepeat.
Kirstie Alley has lost 100 pounds, she tells Entertainment Tonight.
"I feel like I'm back in my element," she said. "I honestly didn't even realize what I looked like."
The Dancing with the Stars runner-up has long talked about her body struggles. In 2004, she became the spokeswoman for Jenny Craig and in 2006, she showed off her slimmed down figure in a bikini on Oprah. She regained weight before mambo-ing off the pounds last spring.
In what would be her first network series since 2000, ABC is close to picking up a new comedy pilot starring Kirstie Alley, Deadline reports.
The Manzanis, a multi-camera comedy, is described as a new take on Roseanne and would star Alley, 60, as an opinionated wife and mother who...
Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake
What was high school like for Cameron Diaz? "Super-easy," she told TVGuide.com at the Bad Teacher premiere in New York City. "I already knew it wasn't the real world and there was another world outside."
The Office's Phyllis Smith, who's co-stars in the film, says she wishes she'd had more "chutzpah" in school and wasn't so shy. Kirstie Alley also would've liked to be less timid. Her advice for her high school self: "Lighten up ... sleep with more guys!"

Question: I am thrilled! Laurence Fishburne is leaving CSI. I thought that the mothership of this franchise lost a lot when Grissom left, but bringing in Laurence Fishburne's character was the worst possible mistake ever.
Yes, Kirstie Alley got the lowest scores of the evening. And no, she didn't have a marching band like Hines Ward or do death-defying lifts like Chelsea Kane. But she still has a very strong shot at winning Dancing With the Stars.
Why? Because the studio audience — usually a very accurate barometer of viewers as a whole — wasn't just a little upset with her scores for Monday nights' samba and freestyle (a total of 54 out of 60), they were thoroughly ticked ...
Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke
Now that the Disney Kid has beaten the Karate Kid, all bets are off. With Tuesday night's elimination of Ralph Macchio, it'll be Chelsea Kane, Kirstie Alley and Hines Ward in next week's Dancing With the Stars finale. But even show insiders are at a loss, trying to figure out who will ultimately sashay home with the prize.
"I gotta believe it's gonna be either Chelsea or Hines," says second season champ Drew Lachey, one of those rare birds who maintains the physical conditioning required to come back to this show and do what he did Tuesday night: Reunite with his pro partner, Cheryl Burke, and dance. "Chelsea and Hines are the strongest ...
Sorry for being MIA the past week! It has been really busy with rehearsals, especially with the semifinals.
I hope you enjoyed the show last night. I honestly think we've done all we could to make the finals and it's time to let the chips fall where they may. Kirstie did a wonderful job last night. I don't think anybody expected there to be ...
