The Swedish actor helps give AMC's hypnotic adaptation of a Danish mystery series its chilly Scandinavian/Girl With the Dragon Tattoo vibe as Stephen Holder, the skeevy new partner of Seattle homicide cop Sarah Linden (the incandescent Mireille Enos). With a wiry frame and a live-wire intensity akin to Oscar nominee John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), Kinnaman routinely swipes scenes with his jittery charisma.
Apple store flash mob
Apple stores are notorious for having crowds, but what happens when a flash mob starts dancing in the middle of one? Lemonade Mouth star Hayley Kiyoko decided to find out.
Kiyoko and choreographer Chris Dupre went into a Los Angeles store and nonchalantly flipped on one of the computer's webcams. With a few cameras capturing the moment, they blasted the hit song "Determinate" from Kiyoko's recent Disney Channel original movie. While at first the pair appeared to just be having some fun, soon dancers began to join in and before the customers realized what was happening, Kiyoko and company were performing a full-on routine.
Cee Lo Green
Glee (Tuesday, 8/7c, Fox)
Too much isn't always a good thing for this erratic yet always exuberant series, but with Lady Gaga music as the hook (including "Born This Way," which doubles as an episode title), this week's outing expands to 90 minutes. With prom looming, Quinn aims her sights on the title of queen — but so does the super-sized Lauren. Meanwhile, Mr. Shue is using the Gaga playlist to teach the glee club more musical life lessons in self-acceptance and embracing what makes each of them special.

It was a sad day for fans of All My Children and One Life to Live when ABC announced that it was pulling the plug on its long-running soaps. But it shouldn't come as a shock.
Ratings for the soaps took their first major hit in 1995, when several cable networks provided gavel-to-gavel coverage of the O.J. Simpson trial. The stunning real-life drama captured the attention of daytime viewers and broke the soap habit for many of them. The numbers have drifted downward ever since.
I can't stand the suspense! Are we finally going to see whose wedding the gang is at on How I Met Your Mother's season finale? — Nicole, Las Vegas
"We're going to learn a great deal about this wedding, but not everything," teases executive producer Carter Bays of his top-secret May 16 season ender (the name of the episode: Barney's catchphrase, "Challenge Accepted").

Question: I don't understand why more people are not watching Fringe. I admit Season 1 was a bit rocky, but Season 2 was great, and so far this season has been the best, in my opinion. It's the only show that seems to fill The X-Files void for me. Last Friday's "LSD" episode was brilliant. I still crack up every time I picture the "How wonderful!" thought bubble above cartoon Walter. And how hilarious was tripping Broyles? He's the only character I've never liked on the show, because he's so rigid, but it was nice to see him loosen up a bit. Too bad it took a bad trip of LSD to do it. Anyway, I know it was renewed for a fourth season despite the poor ratings, but do you think that will be the end? I mean, how can they afford to keep such a low-rated show around?
