Boston Med, Futurama
From the never-say-die TV files comes this joyous comeback: the rebirth of the long-ago-canceled animated sci-fi spoof Futurama on Comedy Central Thursday night (10/9c) with an episode not-so-coincidentally titled "Rebirth." As you'd expect, these intergalactic punsters are in on the joke and milk it for all its worth....
Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi
Although they may no longer be on the wings of love, The Bachelor exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi will be appear together on-camera at least one more time.
Two days after announcing their split, the former couple will be interviewed on ABC, a network rep says. No specifics have been released on when the interview will take place or...

The good news about this year's bumper crop of new summer TV: There's plenty of it. (I spent much of the last few days wading through a mid-July burst of new crime-drama premieres.) The bad news: There's too much of it, and too little of it — at least from what I've seen so far — is any good. (I'm talking about the brand new stuff here, which keeps on coming whether we particularly want it to or not.) At this point, I'm beginning to pine for good old repeats.
Tuesday night provided two particularly painful examples: TNT's dreary Memphis Beat crime drama and ABC's insipid Downfall game show.
Memphis is particularly disappointing...
I'm pretty sure if we cut Jimmy Kimmel open, we'd find that he is stuffed with awesome. Because the clown prince of late night once again showed us why he rocks last night with one of the strangest, silliest and most inspired talk-show episodes TV has been blessed with since, oh, ever.

Do you know which Desperate Housewives kid was switched at birth? — Daniel
MICKEY: Our source is saying that the new season will raise several possibilities, and that we shouldn't jump to any conclusions based on this recasting. That said, Lynette's daughter Penny will have more heavy lifting to do this season, acting-wise...
Oh, sweet mother of all that's holy. Not only has the Real Housewives of New Jersey Danielle Staub inflicted unspeakable pain on our eyes with her flatulence-and-funky-boobs sex tape, it seems she's now intent on making us wish we were deaf, too...
Cheers to The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky for cutting screwy Kasey loose.
It may have been hard to tell what the mush-mouthed ad exec was saying — even with the subtitles during his love poem! — but there was no mistaking the fact that he's bughouse loony. In a frightening attempt to prove he was there to "guard and protect her heart" (an oft-repeated phrase that no doubt launched a thousand drinking games), Kasey got a tattoo of a heart with a shield and 11 studs, representing the 11 studs who were chasing after her. (Ew.)...
Ali and the nine remaining guys continue their round-the-world trip with a visit to Iceland on this week's The Bachelorette. But while she and her suitors enjoy the sights, the real question remains: Will Ali enjoy the sight of Kasey's new "love shield" tattoo when she goes on her first two-on-date with Kasey and Justin? Will the love warrior or the wrestler win the rose...
Vampires, werewolves, and holistic remedy makers! Oh my! The Monahans are the newest members of the practically perfect community know as The Gates. Just as you'd expect, nothing is quite as it seems in this ABC series premiere...
