Dancing with the Stars Backstage Report: Wendy Williams' Bizarre Behavior

Wendy Williams

Here's one for the etiquette police, and a first for Dancing With the Stars: Talk show host Wendy Williams — the second star this season to be told that her Dancing days are over — decided to skip the traditional "last dance" with her pro partner, Tony Dovolani. "I want to thank the judges, and I want to thank you also, Tony, for teaching me how to dance," said Williams upon her dismissal.... read more

Roush Review: Hackers, Slackers, Chefs — And a Fantastic Justified

Margo Martindale

On a busy Wednesday of new TV, we hear a familiar sound. It's the numbing drum roll of broadcast-network mediocrity, which beats on into the late midseason as Fox offers up a new comedy titled Breaking In (9:30/8:30c). Because heaven forbid something might actually break out this year.

This isn't a terrible show, because that might make it memorable. Instead, it falls into that category of being fairly clever without really being funny or all that amusing. A caper series with a high geek factor, Breaking In reminds me of those debates from Chuck's early days... read more

New Critics, New Host, New Format: Producers Dish on Spicing Up Season 3 of Top Chef Masters

Top Chef Masters, Curtis Stone, Ruth Reichl and James Oseland

It's hotter in the kitchen this time around on Top Chef Masters.

In Wednesday's third season premiere, three of the 12 master cheftestants will fail to complete their Quickfire dishes (failures made all the more painful because the chefs are paired off in head-to-head combat). The group is then immediately hit with a round of Restaurant Wars.

Bringing out the contestants' competitive edge is just part of an overall revamp to the Top Chef spin-off, which arrives following viewership declines between the first and second seasons (2.2 million viewers vs. 1.6 million). Gone are host Kelly Choi, critics Gael Greene and Jay Rayner, the five-star rating scale and the tournament-style elimination. The masters are still playing for charity but, by design, they'll feel more... read more

Christian Slater, Odette Annable, Bret Harrison and Alphonso McAuley

To many, Christian Slater will always be known for his dramatic work in films like Interview with the Vampire and True Romance. But that wasn't the case for Breaking In co-creator and executive producer Adam F. Goldberg.

"I sat down with Christian and I basically told him, for me, I think of him as a comedian. Heathers, Very Bad Things, Pump Up the Volume — those are movies that I grew up on and that were really funny," Goldberg tells TVGuide.com.  "He was in our top... read more

5 Things We Learned from NCIS' Pauley Perrette During CBS Tweet Week

Pauley Perrette

NCIS star Pauley Perrette live-tweeted Tuesday's episode, which introduced the Port-to-Port Killer, a serial murderer that the team will chase the rest of the season.

CBS kicks off "Tweet Week"

It was a tense hour that saw Gibbs (Mark Harmon) butt heads with Special Agent E. J. Barrett (guest star Sarah Jane Morris) over who should take lead on the sensitive case. Even the burgeoning romance between Ziva (Cote de Pablo) and her finally introduced boyfriend, Ray (Enrique Murciano) turned much more serious than flowers and candlelight

Thankfully, Perrette's tweets — all part of CBS Tweet Week — kept it a little bit lighter.... read more

Mega Buzz: Thirteen's House Return, Glee's Finn and Rachel and CSI: NY's Finale

Olivia Wilde, Lea Michele, Sela Ward

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What can you tell me about House's big 150th episode? — Trisha
ADAM:
The episode, perhaps the best of the season, finally reveals that Thirteen (the returning Olivia Wilde) ended up in prison. It's a shocking story, so we won't give it away, but we will say that she was convicted of one thing, but actually did something some might consider worse. Mitigating factor: She was acting in the best interest of someone very close to her, which moves House so much that he makes an incredible promise that proves that Dr. Crankypants may have a heart after all.

Is there hope for Rachel and Finn on Glee? — Cheryl
ADAM:
"There is [hope], absolutely," Cory Monteith tells us. "That's a very important, very... read more
