How serious is Kitty's illness on Brothers & Sisters? Nora looked really upset in the promos. — Bev
ADAM: Nora has plenty of reason to sob: Kitty's ailment is of the life-threatening variety. But before anyone can focus on her grim prognosis, Kitty will have to break the news to Robert, who is in the midst of his own health-related crisis.
I can't wait to see how Katherine gets her revenge on Susan on Desperate Housewives. — Kelly
MICKEY: I'm with you, Kelly! The thought of a brooding, bilious Dana Delany makes my cold, black heart sing as well, but my mole tells me that Susan will not takes things lying down. Just as she did at her wedding, Susan will confront Katherine at every turn, which will be problematic when...
The 14 couples get cut to 13 as a third celebrity gets ousted on Dancing with the Stars through a new elimination format. Whose time is up? Find out below!
Mark Dacascos and Lacey Schwimmer
For those of you who voted for couple No. 3, thank you for helping Lacey and I make it to the next week of Dancing with the Stars. For those of you who voted for other couples, thank you for supporting the show.
Stepping on to the stage for our premiere dance reminded me of how I felt when I was about to jump out of a plane for the first time (I've done two tandem free-falls from 12,000 ft.). It was a surreal mixture of terror and utter joy. My blood was pumping so hard in my head it was difficult for me to hear the band.
Deep breath, exhale, smile.
We began our cha-cha in sync and with energy. We had an immediate connection with the audience. All was going well until the beginning of the last third of our routine, when, for whatever reason, I blanked out.
Yes, I totally forgot ...
It's Week 2 on Dancing with the Stars — and it's probably the most grueling week yet. After a three-night premiere, the remaining 14 pairs only had four days to learn a new dance (the jive, tango or quickstep). How did they fare? Let's find out.
In the fourth-season premiere of Brothers & Sisters, Nora and Holly team up to throw an engagement party for Rebecca and Justin. The happy couple turns out to slightly less that happy, however, when the stress of medical school gets to Justin. Meanwhile, Kevin and Scotty investigate adoption via surrogacy, only to find out they may not be on exactly the same page. Kitty and Robert continue to work on their rocky marriage, Sarah takes a business trip to France and Nora uses time spent with her own mother to realize that she's reached a point in her life where it's OK to relax.
On the Season 6 premiere of Desperate Housewives, Lynette tries to come to terms with her unplanned pregnancy, Bree and Karl weigh their options, Susan and Katherine square off over Mike and Gaby squabbles with her unruly niece. Plus, Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) has moved to Wisteria Lane with her creepy family under mysterious circumstances. What were they running from? And how far will they have to go to fit in?
Louie Vito, Chelsie Hightower
Len Goodman can tell Louie Vito how to dance, but he can't tell him how to wear his hair.
"Some people like it and some people don't, but I'm not going to change it," the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells TVGuide.com. "I'm not going to cut my hair and have everyone see how bad it looks short! I'm going to save these luscious locks."
After impressing the crowd with a respectable foxtrot on Monday's season premiere, the snowboarding Olympic hopeful got an earful from the head judge about his shaggy mop of hair and its lack of ballroom-appropriateness. For the record, Vito, who will perform the jive this week, just had it "trimmed." And if you ask ...
Drea de Matteo, Desperate Housewives
Drea de Matteo's addition to the cast of Desperate Housewives is somewhat of a cosmic punchline for the actress.
First of all, get this: She's a huge fan of the show. "For some reason, the real prissy homemakers appeal to me the most," she says, singling out Marcia Cross' Bree and Dana Delany's Katherine. "I'm obsessed with their wardrobes."

Plus, she remembers a time when she considered giving up acting altogether and wished she could just get a gig on a long-running TV show, and specifically mentioned Housewives. Lastly, when her longtime boyfriend, musician Shooter Jennings, proposed to de Matteo recently, the marriage-averse actress replied...
Brothers & Sisters
Most TV actors would be pleased with one meaty storyline each season, but Brothers & Sisters' Dave Annable feels like he struck gold this season with two.
Not only will Annable's Justin Walker start medical school this fall, but he'll also be planning a wedding with new fiancée Rebecca (Emily VanCamp). Naturally, those two arcs will conflict, and the result will be major drama.

"We're really trying to tell the truth of how chaotic his life has become," Annable tells TVGuide.com. "Justin gets very frustrated ...
Elizabeth Mitchell, V
ABC will air its alien-invasion drama V in two parts starting in November and then continuing after the Olympics in March 2010.
"We're planning to air four episodes in November and end with a cliff-hanger," a rep for the show tells TVGuide.com. In March, the show will resume airing the rest of the original 13-episode order, which has not changed with the new airing schedule. V continues to be...
