Ariana Grande, known for her role on Nickelodeon's Victorious, recently gained a following for her YouTube song mashups.
Combining Lady Gaga's "Born this Way" with Madonna's "Express Yourself" made sense melodically, Grande tells TVGuide.com, but she also wanted to send a message with her tunes.
For a new show, Dr. Drew sure spent a lot of time covering old news. Last night, Celebrity Rehab guru (and licensed physician) Dr. Drew Pinsky launched his eponymous HLN show and like a fun drunk at a wedding trying to do the Chicken Dance, it was both entertaining and uneven.
"I will be addressing a whole range of related topics that impact each and every one of us," he promised at the outset. "That's family, relationships, sex."
Dancing with the Stars
It's one thing to see a celebrity stumble on Dancing With the Stars. It's quite another to see one of the show's most experienced pros — Maksim Chmerkovskiy — do the rumba and fall to the ground after suffering a muscle spasm in his left thigh. And to make matters worse, he was balancing his star, actress Kirstie Alley, at the time so she tumbled to the floor with him.
As a Manhattan maternity concierge — and the star of Bravo's latest ultra-niche reality show Pregnant in Heels — British import (and mother of two) Rosie Pope is the go-to expert for high-end moms-to-be who expect nothing but the best for their blessed event. We kid you not.
Cote de Pablo, Sean Murray, Michael Weatherly
"Tiva" fans, brace yourselves. Tonight's NCIS (8/7c, CBS) is the first episode to feature love interests for both Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo — not counting each other. Sarah Jane Morris (Brothers & Sisters) — last seen moving in for a kiss with Tony DiNozzo — returns as special agent E.J. Barrett. And it's the first guest shot for Ziva David's long-built-up boyfriend Ray Cruz (Enrique Murciano).
Karina Smirnoff and Ralph Macchio
Cheers to Ralph Macchio for proving he's alive and kicking on Dancing With the Stars.

The all-grown-up Karate Kid could've been this season's Steve Guttenberg — an '80 relic who remains irrelevant. Instead, he's like the male Jennifer Grey — a movie star who's been out of the picture for years but returns triumphantly to have the time of his life.
Ty Pennington has found the most extreme home of them all: The high-end auction house.
The host of TV's long-running feel-good reality series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Pennington has now signed on to host The Great Big American Auction — which just landed a pilot order from ABC. (Pennington's not moving far: ABC is also the network behind Home Edition.)
Think of Great Big American Auction as a more contemporary Antiques Roadshow. In this case, Great Big American Auction will feature personal treasures with a historic, artist or pop culture bent, all being auctioned off to the higher bidder (and all with a personal story to boot). Among the examples: A near-mint copy of Amazing Spider-Man #1; a ring once owned by Elvis Presley; and an autographed Les Paul guitar being auctioned off to benefit Cystic Fibrosis research.
The show is also touting a fully intact
Dr. Drew Pinsky is finally practicing a little work/life balance.
Well, to be honest, it's more of a work/work balance. But for workaholic Pinsky, at least it's an acknowledgement that something had to give. As he turns even more attention toward TV, Pinsky confirms that he has wound down his medical practice.
