Top Moments: Heidi's New Face, Breaking Bad's New Lease on Life and Fringe's New Tune

Fringe, Breaking Bad

There's no laugh like an unexpected laugh. But this week was filled with them, as such unlikely sources as unhappy employees, CSPAN, and a debate about the Fourth Amendment provided doses of mordant comedy. Of course, we also got our usual, predictably solid joy from Cougar Town and a celebrity sing-along — plus a shockingly poignant moment from... The Hills? We can hardly believe it ourselves. Welcome to Top Moments: Ode to Joy Edition.

Todd Bridges, Everybody Hates Chris

It takes Diff'rent Strokes to move the world, and nobody knows that better than Todd Bridges. Tonight, he begins a recurring gig as a crazed ex-military man named Monk on Everybody Hates Chris (8 pm/ET, on the CW), so we had to see what the former Willis Drummond is talkin' 'bout these days.

Skating with Celebrities Why...

Travis Stork, The Bachelor

Skating with Celebrities Why is it that I saw more falls during the recent Olympic ice-dancing competition than during the entire season of Skating with Celebrities? I don't care if the Torino routines were technically and artistically more difficult — it's just not right. And speaking of the recent global games, I was so out of the loop. I had no idea that Sir CrankyPants was actually Sasha Cohen's coach. Plus, I had no clue that Jillian's partner, John Zimmerman, was married to Italian Olympic skater Silvia Fontana. But back to business. Much like Sunday night's inflated Dancing with the Stars finale, this baby could have been wrapped up in about 20 minutes. But no, the show insisted on parading all the eliminated contestants and their partners back for a couple more rounds of free-skatin' fille read more

Olympics: Women's Figure Skating...

Olympics: Women's Figure SkatingForget about the Shani-nigans of the speed-skating feud, Lindsey Jacobellis' fall from grace and Bode's disappointing body of work. Figure skating is the premiere event of the Winter Games, even without Jillian Barberie and Todd Bridges. And last night's free skate presented Sasha Cohen with the chance to become America's next golden girl.   The night's memorable moments: Kiira Korpi, Finland: Why do I have a feeling we'll be seeing this girl in Maxim sometime soon? In the words of Dick Button, "My goodness!" Extra hot points for skating to "Fever." Yelena Sokolova, Russia: Redeems herself from Tuesday's short program, when she had a Chernobyl-size meltdown. Why is it that all Russian skaters and gymnasts look like '80s New Jersey mall chicks? Liu Yan read more

Todd Bridges Is No Longer Skating By

Todd Bridges, Skating with Celebrities

Perhaps no reality-show elimination is as brutally cold as on Fox's Skating with Celebrities (Mondays at 8 pm/ET), where the booted have likely spent weeks sliding their backsides on the ice. The first to lack muster with the judging panel was Diff'rent Strokes alum Todd Bridges, who in this TVGuide.com Q&A sings the praises of his pro partner, opens up about his sobriety, and promises a true Hollywood tell-all the likes of which you cannot imagine.

TVGuide.com: You treated Skating with Celebrities viewers to a "Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Willis?" early on. Did you just want to get it out of your system?
Todd Bridges:
Yeah, I figured if I kill it before anyone read more

Six Celebs Are Skating on Thin Ice!

Scott Hamilton, Skating with Celebrities

Incredulous laughter. That's everyone's first reaction upon hearing that, starting tonight at 8 pm/ET, Fox is airing its own take on the embarrassment-of-famous-faces reality-show format by making them try someone else's profession in Skating with Celebrities. Scott Hamilton, the 47-year-old Olympic gold medalist, skating legend and cancer survivor, has no problem with that. Rather, he was fully aware of the potential for pratfalls when he signed on to host the contest, which pairs celebs (everyone from bad boy Todd Bridges to former teen queen Deborah Gibson) with champion skaters (Nancy Kerrigan, Kurt Browning and others) for si read more

Here are the six star-pro matchups: Wheaties cover-boy Bruce Jenner with Tai Babilonia; Full House's Dave Coulier with Nancy Kerrigan; Diff'rent Strokes/Los Angeles jail alum Todd Bridges with Jenni Meno; Dude, Where's My Car's Kristy Swanson with Lloyd Eisler; grown-up teen-queen read more
