The long-awaited Goonies reunion on Nickelodeon's animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally takes place this week. Corey Feldman's first episode as the voice of a recurring character is set to premiere Saturday, Nov. 30, at 11 a.m. (ET). Feldman plays opposite his old Goonies co-star Sean Astin in the series. After Raphael's pet turtle, Spike, drinks some mutagen, he turns into the hulking, six-foot Slash — whose gravelly voice is supplied by Feldman.

Mae Whitman, Matt Lauria
Parenthood's Matt Lauria admits that he had a hunch early on that Mae Whitman was his (TV) soulmate.
"Mae and I both, within the first couple of episodes, thought that we had really landed on something special," Lauria tells TVGuide.com. "So we both put our whole hearts into it."
Thankfully, this was no instance of puppy love. In the final moments of last Thursday's season premiere of the heartwarming family drama, Ryan returned home from military duty and...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
TV's heroes in a half-shell are set to return to Nickelodeon next month. The current incarnation of animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kicks off its second season on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 11 a.m./10c.
In the first episode, "The Mutation Situation," the Turtles find out that alien Kraang has dropped mutagen canisters all over New York. Throughout Season 2, the heroes will have to recover those canisters before more mutants are created. Meanwhile, Kraang and Shredder have joined forces to stop the Turtles.
Joining the cast this season is Josh Peck (Drake & Josh), who voices teenage hockey player Casey Jones, a rebel who enjoys taking on the bad guys. TMNT also stars Sean Astin (as Raphael), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Mae Whitman (April O'Neil), Hoon Lee (Master Splinter) and Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder). Corey Feldman recurs as Slash.
What a difference a year makes. Last September, Parenthood faced a shortened 15-episode season after three years of high critical praise but lukewarm ratings. But thanks in no small part to Kristina's heartbreaking battle with breast cancer, the tearjerker family drama transformed from bubble show to buzz show. Now the NBC series returns for a full 22-episode season on a brand new night, Thursdays at 10/9c.
"Moving us to Thursdays was a vote of confidence from...
Mae Whitman and Matt Lauria
Good news, Ryan and Amber fans! Matt Lauria is returning to Parenthood this season, TVLine.com reports.
On the NBC series, Lauria plays Army vet Ryan, a friend of Zeek's (Craig T. Nelson) who began dating Amber (Mae Whitman) early in Season 4. After...
With the success of reality series such as Teen Mom and High School Moms, TV is no stranger to teen pregnancy. However, it's still widely the exception rather than the rule that a scripted character — on a network show no less — will have an abortion. But after riding a wave of critical and commercial success thanks to its honest-to-life depictions of breast cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others, Parenthood tackled the issue head-on in last week's episode. One minute, Drew (Miles Heizer) was worrying about college acceptance letters and the next, he was watching his girlfriend walk through the door at Planned Parenthood to take care of the unwelcome surprise. "We attempted to tell the story in a way that was balanced and would be fair to people watching the show who might have different points of view," showrunner Jason Katims tells TVGuide.com. "We've really been able to tackle difficult subjects in a way that is very honest and that's what we really were trying to do."
With just two episodes left in Parenthood's fourth season (Tuesday at 10/9c on NBC), Katims discussed the decision behind the shocking plot point, Sarah's (Lauren Graham) big decision between Mark (Jason Ritter) and Hank (Ray Romano), why there's hope for Amber (Mae Whitman) and Ryan (Matt Lauria) and previews one of his favorite scenes from...
Grant Bowler and Lindsay Lohan
The fall television event everyone had been waiting for has come and gone, but it will live on in Twitter infamy forever.
We're talking, of course, about Liz & Dick, the Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, which premiered Sunday.
The film was overwhelmingly panned by critics and regular viewers alike, and even some celebrities — including Lohan herself — offered their thoughts via Twitter. Here's a roundup of some of the best celebrity tweets from the night:

Question: How do you feel about the subject matter on Parenthood this season? Some of my favorite moments on the show have always been the lighthearted sibling moments with the jokes and teasing. Those moments are all but gone as the Kristina storyline has taken precedence this year. From the Twitter and Facebook comments I've read, it is really ringing realistically to many viewers. The show is handling it with grace, but it's so very heavy that it seems like a departure for a show that has always had a good dose of comedy in each episode. I doubt that they're gaining viewers this year. My fear is that for a show that has always seemed to get renewed by the skin of its teeth, this feels like the end. Do you have any insight as to ratings or where it stands with NBC? — Jennifer
