On Monday's episode of Today, Prison Break's Lane Garrison discussed his 22-month jail stay with Matt Lauer. It was billed as Garrison's "first sit-down" interview since getting out of jail in April 2009, which differentiates it from the stand-up interview he did with TMZ earlier this month. And that's on top of the gory details of his real-life prison experience he divulged to In Touch over a year ago. Garrison seemed content to play along and act like this was the first time he's really talked about his jail stay, going as far as to say he's kept quiet till now "out of respect for the family" of his victim. Hmmm...

Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!
First of all, sorry for the delay. It's been a very busy week and I've been feeling a little under the weather. It's getting to the point in the competition where the scheduling is catching up to all of us now. It always happens around this time of the season. It's one of those, "Oh, here we go again." I'm overdosing on Vitamin C and a bunch of remedies. There's no point of dwelling on it. You just have to get over the hump.
Well, I'll just start by getting this out of the way. Kirstie's shoe came off because she has lost a lot of weight since she started the show. She's lost a couple of sizes and basically her feet lost weight as well, as funny as that sounds. This isn't something you'd notice normally, but we looked down and the shoe looked like it ...
To maximize the hilarity of clip below from this week's episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, pretend for a second that you work on the customer-service phones of a steak company (any steak company will do, but if you want to be specific about it, go with Omaha Steaks). Since you work the phones, you know little about corporate decisions and/or your company's participation in a reality show that won't air for months. You're just doing your job, answering undoubtedly inane and entitled inquiries. Your line rings (or flashes or however it works — you're the expert!) and on the other end is this...
The Martha Stewart Show
The Martha Stewart Show celebrates the Easter/Passover season with flower arranging tips (Monday), an all-puppy hour (Tuesday) and easter dinner recipes from hotshot chef Michael Galata (Friday). The Emmy-winning series will also reach the 1,000th-episode mark on Wednesday, but Stewart won't be too reverent about it. She's packed the anniversary show with comedic bloopers, behind-the-scenes secrets and a gab session with Saturday Night Live cutup Seth Meyers.
Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski
That Chuck and Sarah's wedding won't go off without a hitch should be of no surprise to fans of the NBC spy series Chuck, but expect some high-jinks from all the events leading up to the big day as well.
"We have a lot of fun at the bachelorette party," says Yvonne Strahovski, somewhat sarcastically. "Sarah has no friends. Her bridesmaids are off somewhere on a mission. They're unavailable. So Ellie organizes a lovely situation." By 'situation' she means a hot performance from a Thunder From Down Under-like group with some local flavor.
Corey Stoll, Alfred Molina, Alana De La Garza
They've been busy reading the Los Angeles newspapers at NBC's revamped Law & Order: LA. The show is relying on two of the year's biggest L.A.-centric news stories to fuel its narrative over the next two weeks. Tonight, Law & Order: LA will tackle local government corruption — motivated by the well-publicized mess in the City of Bell, a suburb of Los Angeles. Then, on April 25, the show airs its episode based loosely on the mysterious murder of Hollywood power publicist Ronni Chasen.
Vincent Irizarry, John Aniston
Nominations for the 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards won't be announced until May 11 but we can tell you right now which soaps are most likely to land in the Outstanding Daytime Drama competition. Here's a look at what each of the seven serials submitted for the top prize and how they stack up.
All My Children (episode 10,505; airdate November 23, 2010)
A strong, crackling hour during which Dr. David Hayward — not dead after all — walks into the courtroom during his murder trial and shocks the snot out of everyone in Pine Valley. Oddly, there are no out-of-the-park performances here but the noir-ish flashbacks detailing how the dastardly doc (played by fan fave Vincent Irizarry) faked his demise and tried to frame his rival Ryan are exceptionally well crafted and quite riveting. The stuff of grand memories? Not really. But this is good, solid work and in some years (like this one) that's more than enough to put a show in the race.
