Rick Fox, Dancing With The Stars
Rick Fox is shooting for a three — for Cheryl Burke. The former Los Angeles Laker has three National Basketball Association championships, and a Dancing with the Stars victory this season would give his pro partner a record third Mirrorball trophy. "I'm putting the pressure on myself to get that for her," he tells TVGuide.com. "I know Derek [Hough] and Mark [Ballas] could get three too. I have to make sure I'm attentive, coachable and I'm putting in the effort that is required. She shapes our partnership into championship level." So coachable is Fox that he gamely went with Burke's last-minute costume change to have him shirtless in their samba. What prompted the change? Find out below. Plus: See when Fox will return to The Game...
Of all The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss is the least desperate.
The Georgia native is a music industry veteran who has produced songs for artists including Mariah Carey, Usher and Alicia Keys. She even took on the lost-cause vocals of Kim Zolciak last season and, through some sort of engineering wizardry, turned out a legitimate dance hit in "Tardy for the Party."
You also won't find Burruss doing much of the trash talking or backstabbing inherent to the Housewives franchise. In fact, Burruss wasn't even sure she wanted to come back for another season.

Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens
Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco are going deep — on their own weekly talk show. "There are no topics really that are off-limits," Owens says of Versus' The T.Ocho Show, which pairs two of the most opinionated, controversial, in-your-face players in the NFL. "I think Chad is the louder of the two mouths — definitely when we have something to say it's heard."
T.O., who joined Ochocinco in the Cincinnati Bengals receiving corps this season, isn't worried about the league taking offense...

The Good Wife
God in America (Monday, PBS, check local schedules)
Is that Benjamin Linus in Puritan drag? Michael Emerson is among the familiar faces in historical recreations (as John Winthrop) as two of PBS' most prestigious franchises, American Experience and Frontline, team for a six-part (over three nights) survey of American history as seen through the prism of religion. From the nation's origins, built on the principal of religious freedom, the series winds its way through wars and social revolutions including the civil-rights movement, exploring the part religion has played in shaping this country's melting-pot nature...

For Richard Castle, romance can be messy. Now he's about to face his daughter's love life.
On Monday's episode of Castle, at 10/9c on ABC, Castle (and viewers) will meet Alexis' first boyfriend. It turns out that the "cool dad" act is, well, an act.
