I need some Scandal scoop ASAP! — Jennie
The campaign will be in full swing when the show returns, but Fitz may not make it out unscathed. He'll have to deal with both someone swearing vengeance against him and resurfacing old rumors. In unrelated news, you will see some interesting nudity in the midseason return.
Got any scoop on The Crazy Ones? — Lindsay
I've learned exclusively that...
Frontline: Syria’s Second Front
I'm beginning to hear in my mailbag from those whose reaction to slaloms, snowboarding and skating isn't so much "Oh my!" as "Oh no!" (And we're not talking Apolo.) Personally, I love dipping in and out of the Winter Games, and NBC is giving us plenty of opportunity — not just in the network's prime-time package, but with live online streaming and selected live events (in decidedly not prime-time hours) on cable outlets including NBCSN.
Things are about to get awkward at Casa de Longworth.
On Monday's The Glades (9/8c, A&E), Jim's mom Joan (Marilu Henner) drops by unannounced — which wouldn't be ...
Enough of Gary Busey and his ridiculousness. It's time for the Celebrity Apprentice competition to really begin.
Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik
Few things bring more pleasure than watching a deservedly hit comedy firing on all cylinders. Such is the case with this week's rollicking The Big Bang Theory (Thursday, 8/7c on CBS), which no matter how long we've enjoyed it still manages to show that it has new tricks up its sleeve — notably, Simon Helberg's gift for celebrity impressions. They come in handy as Howard assumes the role of dungeon master in a game of Dungeons & Dragons on what's supposed to be a boys' night, soon invaded by the gal pals when their plans for a Vegas getaway crap out. "I've never played Dungeons & Dragons with girls before," whines the resistant-to-change Sheldon, to which Penny answers: "Don't worry, sweetie, no one has." Big boom!
Lisa Rinna, Gary Busey, Penn Jillette
All-Star Celebrity Apprentice judge Ivanka Trump says the contestant that has impressed her the most this season is Lisa Rinna.
"Lisa Rinna has really come out strong and she had been fired relatively early in her season," Trump tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "This season has been less of a surprise because we know the relative strengths and weaknesses of each of the people, but I think they're harnessing each other's competitive energy and really putting forth their best. People who were incredibly formidable characters in past seasons ... are coming out swinging."
25 bubble shows: Which will survive?
Rinna is among the remaining six celebs duking it out for their charity and to be "hired" by Donald Trump. The others are Lil Jon, Gary Busey, Trace Adkins, Penn Jillette and Marilu Henner.
Another former Disney Channel star is coming to Two and a Half Men, but this time she has her sights set on Walden (Ashton Kutcher)!
Lizzie McGuire alum Hilary Duff will guest-star on the CBS comedy's upcoming season...
Bret Michaels, Gary Busey
You're hired — again! Fourteen former Celebrity Apprentice contestants will return to the boardroom for the show's upcoming all-star season.
Caterina Scorsone, Kate Walsh, Taye Diggs
These are the guest stars and events that the networks have planned for the second week of November sweeps:
Monday, Nov. 14
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Will Barney and Robin be able to keep their kiss a secret? They're going to try!
Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh
Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh are good sports. By the time the leads of CBS' new hit procedural Unforgettable arrive to scope out a late-afternoon Mets batting practice at Citi Field, they've already been filming since 9am — and when the MLB team takes the field later that evening for a home game, they'll be long gone, back to work at the show's nearby Queens studio. Luckily, those demanding days are paying off: The drama about a woman who uses her superhuman memory to help her cop ex-boyfriend solve crimes premiered last month to 14 million viewers, and the TV vets playing Carrie Wells and Al Burns are determined to keep knocking it out of the park — while cracking each other up in the process.
