Men of a Certain Age turns 2 — the so-called "terrible" stage in life — on Monday. But for the TNT drama, things remain as bittersweet as ever for its leading men as they continue to tackle and tiptoe around middle age.
"It's kind of that never-ending arc that everyone has in life, where you're still trying to get out from under," Ray Romano tells TVGuide.com. "They have a destination they want to get to, but they never ...
The Sing Off
Last year, Puerto Rican a cappella group Nota's take on the Jay Sean hit "Down" helped them shoot to the top on The Sing-Off, winning $100,000 and a Sony recording contract. A year later, a cappella music is again in focus thanks to Glee's recent best-selling single "Teenage Dream" (which coincidentally features former Sing-Off competitors, the Beelzebubs) and the return of The Sing-Off. TVGuide.com talked with the talent behind NBC's reality competition series at a recent Paley Center for Media event to discuss what's in store for Season 2...
"Doesn't everyone want to be pulled around by hunky reindeer?" asks 90210's Jessica Lowndes. The actress is taking a breather from the day's task: singing a sultry version of "Santa Baby" while being hauled around on an ice rink by strapping men-deer and a school of merry elves.
Filming the scene hasn't been easy. "I'm from Vancouver, and I don't know how to skate," Lowndes says. "It's embarrassing."
But this is what Adrianna wants, so in Monday's 90210 fall finale, Lowndes' character will celebrate her rapid rise up the pop charts the way any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star-in-training would. She buys a mansion and a little dog, dresses up as Mrs. Claus (if Mrs. Claus wore fishnet stockings) and throws herself an over-the-top bash.
In 11 seasons, CSIer Greg Sanders (Eric Szmanda) has never received so much as a kiss, so Eric took it upon himself to recruit ...
Men of a Certain Age
Some guys grow on you the better you get to know them. Take the three best buds of TNT's Men of a Certain Age. When I first met them a year ago, their midlife-crisis angst felt suffocating, the deck stacked against them in heavy-handed downer story lines. But as the first season progressed, it's not so much that life got easier but the shrill tone lightened up considerably (especially at home with Andre Braugher's sad-sack Owen). By the poignant end, I was looking forward to welcoming them back, and I'm happy to say the new episodes don't disappoint.

Bristol Palin has a message for Margaret Cho: We need to talk.
"You say you 'don't agree with the family's politics at all' but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values support the right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than k.d. lang at an Indigo Girls concert, " Palin wrote on Facebook to the openly bisexual Cho.
Palin used the post to ...
