Starting tonight, crime-fiction king James Ellroy, author of L.A. Confidential, American Tabloid and more, hosts six episodes of a new show about some of the most devilish acts ever to terrorize the city of Angels. As "the demon dog of American literature" guides viewers through crime scenes, we get to know victims, killers and celebrities, and it begins with the family tragedy that sparked his fascination with crime. But no one is more interesting than the writer himself. We asked Ellroy for the cold, hard facts on his new series.

It's not a Real Housewives reunion without a blowout or two. And based on the trailer for the upcoming Beverly Hills reunion, some choice words will be exchanged among the ladies.
We gather that Kyle and Camille will go at it again, Kim will shed some tears about the way her sister treats her, Camille is convinced her negative portrayal on the show was a "setup" and Andy Cohen brings up a drinking problem with one of the ladies.

It's good to be dead. Or a vampire. Or a community college student, for that matter.

Aw, hell Cesar. The super-friendly seamster got the boot last night and for real, we're gonna miss him. Not only had he stood out as one of the nicest contestants to work his wares on any of Bravo's competitions, he was also pretty darn talented.
The chart-topping, star-making talent contest returns for its 10th cycle with Part 1 of the two-part season premiere. The off-season has been a game of musical chairs for the judges: Kara DioGuardi, Ellen DeGeneres and sharp-tongued vet Simon Cowell are out and new judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are in, joining sole returnee Randy Jackson. In another development, music impresario Jimmy Iovine serves as the new in-house mentor. We kick off tonight with the oft-colorful preliminary auditions, which are set in New York and New Jersey. Other audition destinations this season include Austin, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Nashville, New Orleans and San Francisco. — Dean Maurer
