Oscar winner Kathy Bates turned down many TV roles through the years before accepting the lead in NBC's Harry's Law. Just like her character, Harriet Korn, a tough-talking attorney who tussles with gang members and smokes ...
Like all good things, Kathy Griffin comes in threes! The brassy and funny redhead's newest Bravo special, Kathy Griffin: 50 & Not Pregnant, debuts Thursday at 10/9c, the same week the former D-List star is making 'em laugh in her very own Broadway show, Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony, and after popping up Tuesday as a Sarah Palin-esque regionals judge on Glee (8/7c, Fox). So how grateful are we that she could squeeze ...
Scooby-Doo and Batman
It's a reunion nearly 40 years in the making when Scooby-Doo and his gang team up with the Dark Knight on a delightfully bizarre episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, airing Friday, April 1 (6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network). Written by animation and comic book vet Paul Dini and hosted by Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens (who reprises his role as Bat-Mite, a self-described "all-powerful being ...
Dr. Oz and John Edward
As a rule, the worlds of western medicine and psychic phenomena just don't mix, but that's not the case on Tuesday's installment of The Dr. Oz Show. Oprah discovery Mehmet Oz will welcome famed psychic medium John Edward, who claims to relay messages from the dead, and the two men will discuss how connecting with the afterlife can be therapeutic for those in grief. Edward also conducts readings for several members of Dr. Oz's studio audience, and offers advice on how to pick up signals your dead loved ones may be sending you — things you can do without the help of a psychic. TV Guide Magazine spoke by phone with Dr. Oz, who had quite a wild time watching ...
So when you can say things got weird on a show as weird as Fringe, you know we're talking way-out-there weirdness, right? Like beyond Sheen crazy.
And last Friday, things reached just that level of bananas when we saw, in the final moments of ...

Question: Hoping you might have some thoughts on Supernatural this season. Like a lot of fans, I've been seriously disappointed by the fact my favorite show seems to be floundering without Eric Kripke at the helm. I'm finding season 6 to be an incohesive mess, with little apparent "through line" when it comes to plot and characterization, and disappointing underuse of both Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins. I'd love to know how you see things, and what your thoughts are for the show moving forward to a seventh season? As you know, the Supernatural fandom is very active online, and I'm getting the distinct impression from go-to fan forums that a good proportion of the fandom is underwhelmed by season 6, and have either jumped ship or plan to if things don't look up after the show starts airing again. — Kate
Matt Roush: I gather you weren't part of the crowd at Sunday's PaleyFest lovefest in L.A., huh? These are almost fighting words when you consider how passionate the fan base for Supernatural is. I can't speak for any fan consensus, because I rarely seek out those forums so as to keep my own perspective untainted. But I'm not surprised to hear this season has been a letdown to many — although it doesn't get better than the recent "meta" episode, which I enjoyed greatly, in part as a commentary on doing a "season 6" when the fifth season was for so long regarded as the show's likely endgame...
On Monday's The Bachelor finale, Brad Womack will hand out his final rose — or, not. Well, this time he probably will.
Should he give his final rose to Chantal, the sassy divorcée who slapped him during their first meeting? Or to Emily, the sweet Southern belle with a daughter at home. Or should he repeat his decision from Season 11 and choose neither?

Inside the Actors Studio (Monday, 7/6c, Bravo)
Even in those moments when it succumbs to fawning self-parody, there's something about James Lipton's craft/career-focused Q&A's that I find irresistibly endearing. (May have something to do with my nostalgia for what Bravo was like before all of those heinous Real Housewives took over the network.) This week, this marginalized show — notice how it airs outside prime-time parameters — welcomes its first-ever graduate from the Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University. Said successful alum being Bradley Cooper, beloved by TV fans for his work on Alias but now busy with a film career including The Hangover, Wedding Crashers and the new Limitless opposite Robert De Niro.
