Watercooler: The VMAs Were Far From Award-Worthy

Chelsea Handler

Let's not be too harsh on Chelsea Handler. It wasn't all her fault that the VMA's stank this year.

No, there was a lot wrong with last night's show. First off, about 90% of the performances were autotuned monstrosities — none worse than Best New Artist zygote Justin Bieber, who took to a stage outside of L.A.'s Nokia Theatre for a mall tour-caliber rendition of his hit, "Baby," which sounded like he was singing through an airplane propeller. Kid was more dubbed than a Godzilla movie... read more

Huge's Hayley Hasselhoff: There's More Boy Trouble Ahead

Getting your heart broken is no fun, but it may just be what Huge's Amber needed.

Last week, Camp Victory's resident pretty girl — though she doesn't think so herself — was dumped by hunky counselor George (Zander Eckhouse) barely two trysts into their secret relationship. She ended the episode in tears — a good wake-up call, says Hayley Hasselhoff, who plays Amber.

"She came to camp to lose weight and I think now she realizes she got off-track because she focused all her time and energy on this boy that she shouldn't really be with," Hasselhoff tells TVGuide.com. "Her whole fling with George brings her ...

Roush Review: Few Laughs in Melissa & Joey, Big Lake and Kids' Death

Kids in the Hall

Memo to the gods of summer TV: Enough already! These are the dog days of August, I understand that all too well (as I wring out my socks after every muggy walk home from work), but the last thing we need in this summer of original-programming bounty is a pack of actual barking dogs pretending to be comedies.

Two make their bow Tuesday night, with back-to-back episodes challenging you to make it to that second half-hour.

First up: ABC Family's retro snooze Melissa & Joey, or: The Manny. Not Manny as in the wonderfully precocious Manny (Rico Rodriguez) of Modern Family, but male nanny, Who's The Boss? style.

Joey Lawrence fills that role, as "Joe," a down-on-his-luck commodities broker who lost his fortune and family in a financial meltdown. Let me be the first to say: "Whoa." He moves in, platonically, to work ... read more

Melissa & Joey: Take Two

Melissa and Joey

Following their success with last year's TV-movie My Fake Fiancé, former teen stars Joey Lawrence (Blossom) and Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains It All; Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) are reteaming for a new sitcom, Melissa & Joey (premiering tonight at 8/7c on ABC Family). The premise? When local politician Mel Burke suddenly finds herself responsible for her teenage niece and nephew, help arrives in the unlikely form of Joe Longo, a former Wall Street trader who moves in as the family's "manny." Can you say, "Whoa?!"? ... read more

Watercooler: Pretty Little Shocker!

Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario

OK, first off, if you've never gone glamping, do so immediately. Massages. Mani-pedis. It's divine.

Secondly, did you really think the girls would catch "A"? Come on. This was only the mid-season finale, kids!

Last night, Rosewood's fab four left us hanging — and Tweeting feverishly — as they came oh-so-close to nailing their texting tormentor ... read more

A Secret Life Engagement? "There's a Very Expensive Object in Play," Star Says

Ken Baumann

Getting married just because you're expecting a baby from a one-night stand is not exactly the best reason to say "I do." Or is it?

Last week, Ben balked at his father's suggestion to wed Adrian (Francia Raisa) on The Secret Life of the American Teenager (Monday at 8/7c on ABC Family). The teen, however, will have a change of heart on Monday's episode when the two go in for Adrian's first sonogram.

"He definitely ...

Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell Fills Shoes She Wouldn't Have in Her Closet

Shay Mitchell

Pretty Little Liars has tackled storylines such as a student/teacher relationship, divorce and disapproving parents. For Shay Mitchell's Emily, high school is hard enough, and it's more difficult that "she doesn't know who she can talk to or who is going to support her" about her budding sexuality, Mitchell says.
