"Were you surprised?" asks host Tom Bergeron moments after the show. "I was really surprised. I thought he'd go at least three or four weeks." The "he" in question is David Hasselhoff, the first star bounced from the new season of Dancing With the Stars.

Dancing with the Stars - Mya, Donny Osmond, Kelly Osbourne
After getting dethroned for a few weeks from our Dancing with the Stars power rankings, Mya has reclaimed the top spot with 43 percent of TVGuide.com users' votes.

Kym Johnson and Warren Sapp, Dancing with the Stars
If timing is everything, then Warren Sapp may be peaking on Dancing with the Stars at just the right moment. He came in a strong second on Monday night, and he did so despite the fact that he's been dancing with a huge disadvantage: He loses a full day of training every week. Read on to see how Warren's disadvantage led to his first big fight with Kym...

Stepping in to the TV Guide Sexiest Stars Party at Katsuya Thursday night, the place was packed as throngs of people swished through the crowded front room and snaked around past the sushi bar, the photo booth and into the back room, S Bar. Servers moved through the crowd with trays of tall, exotic cocktails, and the bar was lined with glossy guests in hip threads. Weaving through the scene were recognizable celebs squeezing by. Suddenly, there was E! host Michael Yo high-fiving a TV Guide pal (his rumored new main squeeze, Karina Smirnoff, was not in tow). Next, there Kenneth the Page aka Jack McBrayer who seemed just as earnest in real-life as he does in his 30 Rock garb. Upon some intros, he shook hands, and said, "Thanks for having me!" It was tempting to inquire about his video costar, Mariah Carey, and her new husband, but there was sushi waiting (priorities, priorities).Stepping in to the dining area with a pomegranate Mojito in hand, the central sushi-making ar...

Before we get to the reasons why Tuesday nights finale of Damages should be a model for how a serialized show on the ropes should end a season in high style, resolving many major plot points while cunningly setting up a second season (if there is a second season) here are a few observations on some other positive TV news.The full-season pickup for Pushing Daisies. Best news of the week. Ever since the pilot began to circulate last spring, the reaction has been a mix of delight and unease: first, amazement that something this fabulous was coming to TV; second, skepticism that the TV audience would embrace it; and lastly, whether it could sustain the same quality after the knockout first hour. The answer so far has been affirmative, especially (and to me, most critically) in the quality arena. Each episode has been a gas, a treat, a knockout. With great buzz and solid if not spectacular numbers, ABC did the right thing in giving Daisies even more room to grow.The o...
Joey Fatone, The Singing Bee
Folks like me "love" music, we just don't make a study of, you know, the actual lyrics. Perhaps the most famous example is "Excuse me while I kiss this guy," one misunderstanding of the words to "Purple Haze." Not one but two — two! — game shows debuting this week were inspired by the fact that people with a song in their heart don't always have the correct lyrics in their head. The first one out of the gate is NBC's The Singing Bee, premiering tonight at 9:30 pm/ET and hosted by Joey Fatone, known both for his singing (as part of 'N Sync) and his dancing (on this past season of Dancing with the Stars). TVGuide.com invited Fatone to explain why his "complete
