Survivor: Redemption Island
Spoiler Alert: The following reveals the outcome of Wednesday's episode of Survivor.

Here's the low down on Lowe: When it comes to talk of Rob Lowe joining the cast of Two and a Half Men, don't believe the hype.
Lowe is a full-fledged cast member on NBC's Parks and Recreation. That means he has a multi-year agreement to star on the show — which would appear to rule out a sudden move to fill the Charlie Sheen void. "He has a regular series deal," says one network insider. "He's sticking with Parks and Rec."
The Lowe idea has spread fast and wide in recent days, so much that even Sheen is...
Lost's Terry O'Quinn is coming back to ABC for the hourlong drama pilot Hallelujah, a network rep confirms.
