Beyond Scared Straight
The debut of A&E's new unscripted show, Beyond Scared Straight, attracted 3.7 million viewers, making it the network's most-watched series to date.

DuBois dishes on the dinner table dust-up.

"Why does fun always have a price?"
These are the words of Poor Sue Heck — I can never refer to this scene-stealing character (played brilliantly by Eden Sher) without adding the word "poor" in front of her name — in another hilarious episode of ABC's underappreciated The Middle. Yes, the show is fun, but with the sting of truth. Living in the shadow of the marvelous Modern Family (which offered up another farcical hoot this week), ABC's Wednesday ...
