There's no better way to work off all that Memorial Day weekend BBQ than lounging on the couch watching endless hours of TV. (Exercise is overrated.) Check out our marathon roundup for the unofficial start of summer after the jump.
Pam Beesly and Paris Hilton
Let's face it: TV this week was pretty disgusting. On Heroes, Sylar crawled out of his grave and back from the dead — a development that made us disgusted with the show's writers. A sense of moral outrage accompanied the news that Chase killed an African dictator on House. Paris Hilton made us feel shame for liking her, and then got graphically beheaded on Supernatural. The Office elevated a pregnancy cliché — morning sickness — to high comedy art. South Park made us rethink Mexican cuisine. And Madonna and Lady Gaga made a gross display of themselves on SNL. Welcome to this week's Top Moments: Profound Disgust Edition.
Larry David, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin
Meg Ryan and Christian Slater will be among the A-list guest stars on Curb Your Enthusiasm's fall season. In other HBO news, True Blood, Entourage and Hung will all be back next summer.

Curb, which last saw the light of day nearly two years ago, returns for a seventh season on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c, the network announced at the fall TV previews in Los Angeles. In addition to the previously announced...
This was definitely one of the tougher episodes in recent memory especially being the mother of a son Watching Gates brave young patient succumb to his terminal respiratory disease was almost too much to bear The scene with the chaplain and the mother watching his struggle for each breath was heartbreaking made even more so by the courage and conviction the boy demonstrated by making the decision not to go on a ventilator On a much more lighthearted note I felt like there was a lot of chemistry between Sam and Gates as they butted heads over the ethical handling of the case Ive said it before but I really feel like a Sam-Tony pairing would be an interesting place to go especially when you think about the kids and the connection they would have there Come on ER writers throw me a boneAs Pratt and Morris opted for a rather nontraditional approach to preparing for their board exams a new attending came on the scene I loved Kari Matchett on both Invasion and St

Betty Thomas, the director who delivered two tongue-in-cheek Brady Bunch movies to the cineplex, is in talks to seize the reins of the big-screen Dallas remake, which at this oft, oft-delayed point still has John Travolta attached to play J.R. Ewing. Screenwriter Pam Brady (Hot Rod, and perhaps related to Cousin Oliver?) is taking a fresh, fresher crack at the script.Over the course of the assorted delays, such once-eyed stars as Jennifer Lopez (as Sue Ellen), Luke Wilson (Bobby) and Shirley MacLaine (Miss Ellie) have bailed on the adaptation. Meg Ryan was the latest name bandied about to tackle Sue Ellen. A January 2008 start date is now being targeted.
Glenn Close, who has a season-long stint on The Shield under her belt, is reteaming with FX as the star of a legal-thriller pilot revolving around a high-stakes litigator, Variety reports. Meg Ryan, meanwhile, is attached to star in The Best Awful, an HBO miniseries adaptation of Carrie Fisher's follow-up to her Postcards from the Edge novel.
Angela Bassett and her husband of nine years, Law & Order: CI's Courtney B. Vance, are expecting twins this spring — via a surrogate, says the New York Post.... Meg Ryan, who has a 13-year-old son via ex-husband Dennis Quaid, has adopted a baby girl from China.
As the World Turns alum Scott Bryce — who romanced Meg Ryan's Betsy back in the '80s as the original Craig Montgomery — is coming back to daytime. But instead of returning to Oakdale, he's headed for One Life to Live's Llanview as police psychiatrist Ed Crosby. He'll begin counseling broody cop John McBain (Michael Easton) on Jan. 4. Click here for more info from Bryce himself!

Can't wait 'til 2006 for the details? Just read on....
TVGuide.com: Welcome back to soaps! We sure missed you.
Scott Bryce: Thanks! Well, it's a recurring role, so we'll see how long I'm around. They've scheduled eight episodes for me so far, so I'll be airing into February on OLTL.
TVGuide.com: Before we get to that, Hunt Block is a fine actor, but for many ATWT fans, you're the one and only Craig. His Craig was very different from your more lovable version.
Bryce: Aww... he was playing a different part with the same name. They needed to give him connecti
Oh, man — do you love intrigue? Long as it's intriguing, right? And violence? Long as it's justified by the intrigue (and stays on the screen rather than in your actual life). So I know we're in for a treat here, 'cause HBO is no slouch when it comes to good historical drama. First good sign: Everyone has a British accent, which nearly always signifies a class act — and oh, yeah, the fact that this is a coproduction with the BBC. Duh. But if anyone knows class struggles, it's the Brits. I mean, when Polly Walker's Atia tells her servant she'll use the eyes of his children for beads if he doesn't bring her son Octavian back safely, can you imagine it coming out nearly so well from, say, the mouth of Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan?
Anyway, like any good epic, this one requires a flow chart, so I can't begin to summarize here. The most important bits: Caesar's been off commanding his victorious army for eight years, sending spoils back to the common people to b
