Who ordered the Lucci Sandwich? Delicious Erica Kane returns to All My Children October 6 after a 10-week absence and walks right into a love triangle. The Pine Valley diva, played by Emmy winner Susan Lucci, has been away on a pre-honeymoon with fiancé Jack (Walt Willey) — a plot device to accommodate the actress' summer hiatus — and she discovers that her gruff mountain man Caleb (Michael Nouri) is now lookin' mighty fine. TV Guide Magazine had a little chit-chat with La Looch to get her take on ...
It may be hard to believe, but Beverly Hills, 90210 — the ultimate teen drama — debuted 20 years ago on Oct. 4, 1990. Its 10-year run follows the Walsh twins on their move to the tony zip code from Minnesota, through their high school years and on to California University. So what's everyone up to now?

This was not your typical Dancing With the Stars elimination. The stars and their pro partners were unusually upset by the ouster of crooner Michael Bolton — and even more upset by judge Bruno Tonioli's devastating comments on Bolton's performance the night before, including ...
Gail Simmons, Johnny Iuzzini
If you ever wondered how Just Desserts judges Gail Simmons and Johnny Iuzzini manage to consume boatloads of rich, decadent sweets in one sitting during production, the answer is... well, cut back on real food. The only problem, says Simmons, is that just eating dessert isn't so good for you. "At night when we'd finish, I'd realize I didn't put anything in my mouth that has actual nutritional value to it," she says. "And at the end, I'd be craving so much saltiness. ... I don't have Johnny's metabolism." Burger and fries after dessert? Sign us up.

In this video, Simmons and Iuzzini talk about the first time they met, and how he confessed to her that he had a little crush. Aw.

Some sex scenes turn you on. Others turn your stomach.
For the third year in a row, we're singling out the TV hookups that do the latter. From a twisted True Blood sex scene to a slap-happy afternoon on Mad Men to seeing way too much of Steve Zahn on Treme, we celebrate all the lowlights. (And there's not enough bandwidth in the world to touch on all the sliminess in the Jersey Shore house.) ...

A Philadelphia native and brother of the late still photographer Irving Penn, Penn first made his name directing television dramas and Broadway plays in the 1950s and '60s. He earned Tony nominations for his stage productions of Two for the Seesaw, The Miracle Worker and All the Way Home, winning for The Miracle Worker. Star Anne Bancroft also won a Tony.

Jennifer Love Hewitt
On Wednesday's episode of Law & Order: SVU, Jennifer Love Hewitt guest-stars as Vicki, a woman who has been repeatedly raped by the same man for more than a decade.
Hewitt says the role is like nothing she has done before: raw and stripped-down. "Looks-wise, wardrobe-wise, hair-wise, makeup-wise ... [I had to] take everything off and be something that I've never been before. [It] really allowed me emotionally and physically and mentally to go to a different place," she says.
SVU's Neal Baer says premiere was inspired by Vertigo
No oops needed. Because Glee did it again.
Just when it was getting easier than Santana to write off the show as all cracked eggs and no omelet, they went and knocked it out of the lip-synching park with their Britney Spears episode. Granted, there was about as much plot as there was in Crossroads, and most of the hour was randomly strung-together fantasies sprung from the nitrous tank of John Stamos' dentist character, but when the fun (and quotability) is at a level this high, we'll let it pass. This time.
However, a few nits ...
If ever you needed proof of just how different NCIS and its spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles are, consider "Worst Nightmare," this week's episode of the mothership show. On NCIS: L.A., the team operates under top secrecy at all times, to the point of even the headquarters building being disguised; the agents pretty much go undercover just to go to the bathroom. Meanwhile, the latest hour of NCIS centered around the not-so-secret presence of... interns.
Interns? Yep, NCIS had an infestation of 'em, and rather than break out a can of Raid, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) was intentionally encouraging the influx of college students, showing off his softer — softie? — side....
