Any Lost scoop? — Ari
MICKEY: You can add Katey Sagal's name to the list of Lost alums who have jetted off to Hawaii to shoot scenes for the final season. Call me a romantic, but I never believed that Locke's beloved Helen was actually dead; that whole cemetery scene reeked of fakery. Plus, we've all heard the rumors about Season 6 employing an alternate timeline (or, more intriguing, a "do-over" of Oceanic Flight 815), which means that even if Matthew Abaddon was telling the truth, Helen is still just as likely to be alive as, say, Charlie, Boone, Shannon, Eko or Juliet.

Sylar crawled out of the ground on Monday's Heroes. Does that mean no more Nathan? — Justin
ADAM: That remains to be seen. But I will tell you this... read more

Christian Slater Talks About the Tears and True Heroes Behind The Forgotten

Christian Slater

The last time we saw Christian Slater on TV, he was doing double duty as the good guy and the bad guy on the short-lived Jekyll-and-Hyde drama My Own Worst Enemy. In his new show, The Forgotten, Slater takes a complete 180 to tell the story of a former Chicago police detective and his volunteer group, who solve the cases of unexplained disappearances and unidentified homicide victims. The show might seem like just another crime procedural, but there's more heart and more at stake thanks to Slater's character, Alex Donovan, a man still reeling from his 8-year-old daughter's disappearance two years ago. In an interview with TVGuide.com, Slater tells us about the behind-the-scenes tears, the gravitas involved and the unsung heroes behind The Forgotten.

Dancing's Maks Ready to Samba Out of Bottom Two

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog! I'm excited to share my thoughts and stories with you this season. First, thanks to everyone who has voted for Debi and me. We are working hard every day. Our next dance is the samba and it's going great! I think she's finally getting the hang of all of this. It's a hard dance and requires a lot of precision, but at the same time, it's a lot of fun. I think Debi will do a great job. She did a wonderful tango last week and  she's getting better and better, and I love that. That's what the show's all about — improving every week.

Last week, we were in the bottom two. I don't know what happened. I don't think about that. Everybody has their fan base and maybe hers is smaller. We're doing our ...

Dana Delany, Kyle MacLachlan, Jeffrey Nordling and Drea De Matteo

On Sunday's episode of Desperate Housewives, we find out what happened to Julie Meyer. Her attacker is still at large, but the neighbors' suspicions focus on Danny Bolen, with whom Julie appeared to have a perhaps-rocky relationship. Also, Susan helps Lynette make a very important decision. Bree's secret weighs on her. Angie, ever the protective mother, comes up with a plan involving Ana to cover for her wayward son — that is, until Gaby catches wind of it. Oh, and Katherine might have gone completely around the bend, sanity-wise, this week.

Dancing's Natalie Coughlin Cooking Up an "Intense and Sexy" Rumba

Natalie Coughlin

Results are cut-and-dry in swimming, and Natalie Coughlin wishes the same was true for Dancing with the Stars. "It's such a foreign concept to me, standing up there and hoping you got picked," she tells TVGuide.com. "In swimming, you're the fastest or not. It's so weird being judged." Alas, she is being judged and she hopes everyone will like what they see from her on the parquet because she doesn't want to leave any time soon. "I think it was last week when I realized, whenever this is over for me, it's going to be really depressing. I really love it," Coughlin says. See what else the 11-time Olympic medalist has to say about her improvements on the dance floor, why the rumba is her favorite dance and why she may pop up on another reality show.

Extreme Makeover Helps Keep Kids Together in New Home

This week finds us in Greene County, Mo. where Chris and Niki Hampton were happily living in a 792 sq. ft. house with their 9-year-old son Dakota and 6-year-old daughter Hannah (cramped but content). Then, the Hamptons got a phone call from Social Services. Niki's sister's four children had been taken by the state, and Chris and Niki had one hour to decide whether they could take in their nieces and nephews, or let them go to a foster family. They knew immediately that they had to take in Jacob, Lexi, Kira and Gage. Though they weren't sure how eight people could squeeze into the tiny one-bedroom, one-bathroom house, the Hamptons knew that they needed to take those kids in, or they would lose them into the system where they'd likely be separated. This week is about following through with their wish to keep those kids together, safe and create one big family unit.
