Oh, that Lynette Scavo is just the worst.
Seriously, of all the Desperate Housewives' harridans, we have never seen such a shrew, and that's including Bree's mercifully forgotten daughter, Danielle! Remember that mess?
Some familiar faces are coming to a TV near you, and TV Guide Magazine caught up with them at the 18th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala on April 29 to get the scoop on their new shows.
After almost a decade away from a steady TV gig, Lea Thompson (Caroline in the City) is now about to play the mother of a daughter she didn't know she had, on ABC Family's Switched at Birth, premiering June 6.
Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly
Michael Weatherly is in the makeup chair on the NCIS set, getting his brunette hair and long sideburns touched up. He's shooting "Baltimore," the May 5 episode that will flash back at hairy length to show the fateful meeting between his Tony DiNozzo and Mark Harmon's Jethro Gibbs, ten fictional years ago. Writer (and co-producer) Steve Binder sits nearby, in case the script needs any touching up along with Weatherly's dye job.
Cheers to Treme for its triumphant second season.

Oscar-winner Melissa Leo has been joined by her killer fellow Homicide: Life on the Street vet Jon Seda as a Dallas developer whose taste for New Orleans' food and music is rivaled only by his thirst to profit from the aftermath of its tragedy. Plus, the always-excellent David Morse has been promoted to full-time regular duty as a beleaguered NOPD cop. His "Let Bourbon Street be Bourbon Street" speech rivaled Hill Street Blues' best squadroom-briefing monologues.

It's the price viewers pay for living in a multi-channel world, where they can watch what they want when they want." Then in your Roush Review column in the same issue, "Stumbling to This Season's Finish Line," you close by saying: "After a season of coasting, let's hope the networks raise their game come fall. It's never too late." Are you perhaps using "never" too loosely?
Dr. Charlotte Brown and Dr. Travis Stork
Travis Stork is a bachelor no more. The star of The Bachelor's eighth season has proposed to his girlfriend, People reports.
Stork asked Dr. Charlotte Brow, his girlfriend of two years, to marry him on a recent vacation in Hawaii, according to the magazine. It seems like a good fit: Stork currently co-hosts the CBS morning show The Doctors and Brown, 28, is a pediatrician.
