David Lyons and Mena Suvari
Several months ago, The Cape's creator, Tom Wheeler, clued me in that he planned to kill off a series regular in his first season finale. Then ratings fell, NBC cut the show order from 13 to 10 episodes, and now the season finale appears to be the series finale. But for those loyal Cape fans out there, there will still be a significant death before the Cape hangs it up for good.
The concluding chapter will be available for viewing at http://www.nbc.com/the-cape/ beginning at midnight tonight, Friday, March 11.
Kelvin Lewis and Nancy Lieberman
Nancy Lieberman has been breaking basketball barriers for almost four decades, and she's not done yet. The 52-year-old Hall of Famer is currently in the midst of her first season as the first female head coach at the NBA level, calling the shots for the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League (the equivalent of Triple-A baseball).

Lieberman isn't shy about her competitive nature, but she's not afraid to show a softer side with her players.

"Martha is going to be called, 'Martha.' ... I was like, 'Do you really want to be 'Grandma'? I don't like the term Grandma!" she said.

Our top moments of the week:
11. Most Passive-Aggressive Duo: After completing the frog-in-a-mud-pit Detour on The Amazing Race in what can only be described as adult diapers, Kent marvels at how cold it was in the pit -- not to mention, the fact that his goth makeup held up. "Were you cold?" he asks gal pal Vyxsin. She responds: "No, because I was working really hard." Oh, snap!
10. Most Outrageous Flirting: On Bethenny Ever After, the newlywed/new mom shamelessly flirts with Dan, a delish Rachael Ray Show producer — or as Bethenny calls him, "a tall, cute glass of...
The votes are in, and it's time for American Idol to send another hopeful crooner home. And apparently, the "new" Idol isn't much different from old Idol when it comes to overstuffed results shows. Anyway, Ryan Seacrest lets us know that more than 30 million votes were cast Wednesday night. But who did America vote for?
