Chelsea Tyler, Jon Foster
Steven Tyler's daughter Chelsea is engaged to Jon Foster, People reports.
Before popping the question, the actor-musician asked the Aerosmith front-man for permission on March 7 at Chelsea's 25th birthday party. And Steven was more than happy to say yes.

The time has come (finally) to talk about House of Cards. After three weeks of trying to keep the big spoilers under wraps and patiently wait around for people to finish binge-watching Season 2 — hurry it up, President Obama — the grace period is officially over. So where does that season premiere shocker rank with the rest of the jaw-dropping, must-rewind moments that followed it? TVGuide.com ranks the craziest occurrences from the season.
Suffice it to say, spoiler alert...
Laurence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen
"I never feel guilty eating anything," purrs Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) as he serves up another portion of some erotically charged exotic delicacy. NBC's Hannibal (Friday, 10/9c), in its second season, is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.
Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright
[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from the Season 2 premiere of Netflix's House of Cards. Read at your own risk.]
House of Cards' second season premiere ends with Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood telling viewers, using his trademark direct address to the audience in the most meta way possible, not to spend much time fretting over his most recent deplorable act. "For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy," Frank purrs. "There is but one rule: Hunt or be hunted. Welcome back."

While the Olympians continue to dominate the TV spotlight in Sochi, another gathering of championship talent takes a bow in the weekend's other gold-medal event: PBS's Great Performances presentation of National Theatre: 50 Years on Stage (Friday, 9/8c, check tvguide.com listings).
Laurence Olivier led the National Theatre upon its founding in 1963, and he and other luminaries are seen in vintage clips from past productions, interspersed throughout a dazzling evening of live re-enactments and tantalizing excerpts from landmark plays, including Angels in America, Stuff Happens, The History Boys and War Horse. Fans of Downton Abbey will delight to see the Dowager Countess Maggie Smith in her 1964 prime, vamping in ...
Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright
