Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is giving $100 million to Newark, N.J., schools on the same day The Social Network, the unflattering film about establishing his company, is premiering.
Zuckerberg, who just placed as the 35th-richest person on Forbes' annual list, will present his donation along with Newark Mayor Cory Booker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Friday's Oprah Winfrey Show.
Survivor: Nicaragua, Shannon Elkins
The slip-ups on Survivor are usually involve alliances, blind sides and hidden immunity idols, but the La Flor tribe's Shannon Elkins got himself in much deeper water during his final tribal council. After arguing with former ally Chase Rice, Shannon turned to tribemate Sash Lenahan. "Hey, I'm gonna get this out of the way right now," viewers heard him say. "Are you gay"?

Fox's Family Guy will be presenting an hour-long Christmas special entitled Road to the North Pole, complete with three musical numbers. It's the long-running animated show's first holiday outing since Season 2. The insanity begins when Brian takes Stewie to see Santa at the mall.

If The Breakfast Club had been filmed like The Real World, it might look something like My Generation, a docu-style drama chronicling nine fictional Austin high-school students over the last 10 years. Every actor plays both 18-year-old and 28-year-old versions of their characters.
Jaime King (Gary Unmarried), 31, plays Jackie Vachs, "the Beauty Queen," who went to Hollywood but came back to Austin with her dreams unfulfilled. "When she's young, she's open and vibrant and fun," King says. "And now she has a life she never would have chosen."
When we last saw the reluctant assassin Nikita, she was a blonde. But the hair color of the lead actress — Peta Wilson then, Maggie Q now — isn't the only change you'll notice when you tune in to the CW's bold reimagining of La Femme Nikita, the cultish 1997—2001 USA Network series. Early intel suggests this isn't your parents' Nikita. Here's why. ...
Doris Roberts and Patricia Heaton
Cripes, are you already behind?
