Hawaii Five-0

Mele Kalikimaka! (That's Hawaiian for Merry Christmas). In honor of the holiday, Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov is giving fans a gift — the introduction of the villainous Wo Fat, Steve McGarrett's archenemy from the original 1968—1980 series.

Just in time for their holiday episode (expect to see Scott Caan's Danny as Santa), Lenkov is planning the return of James Marsters as Victor Hesse, who murdered McGarrett's father in the pilot and, we'll learn, has a connection to Wo Fat. read more

Has Sesame Street Become More Gay-Friendly?

Has Sesame Street become more gay-friendly?

In recent months, the long-running children's program has seen openly gay stars Wanda Sykes and Neil Patrick Harris on the show, spoofed the gay-friendly True Blood, and featured a will.i.am performance of "What I Am," a tune about accepting who you really are, which triggered Internet speculation about its message.

That followed a June 11 tweet from Bert — who, along with roommate Ernie, has long been suspected by fans to be gay — that read: "Ever notice how similar my hair is to Mr. T's? The only difference ...

In many ways, zombies are the most horrifying of classic monsters. They're not romantic, tragic-hero types. They just are. No explaining them, no containing them; they're the human animal reduced to its most primitive and soulless state, compelled by only one need: to feed. All you can do is run.

The Bold and the Beautiful Hires the Homeless

Stephanie Forrester

In these days of crippling budget cuts, it's pretty damn remarkable that The Bold and the Beautiful went down to L.A.'s Skid Row and hired some 25 real-life homeless people to tell their life stories on camera. The sequences, airing October 28-29, are part of a plot that has Beverly Hills matron Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) battling stage 4 lung cancer and using what time she has left to help those who have nothing. The soap's exec producer-head writer Brad Bell, who has hired an additional 30 homeless to appear as extras, swears he won't be dropping this storyline anytime soon. In fact, it'll be an integral part of the show's holiday season. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the B&B boss man about his groundbreaking plot and where it goes from here. ...

Private Practice

Question: I'd argue that Mad Men's recently wrapped fourth season was perhaps its finest to date, but I'm disappointed with the way the writers treated Betty throughout the season. Betty was easily one of my favorite characters during the first three years of the show, and I was thrilled when January Jones finally received an overdue Emmy nomination for her stellar work. However, not only was the actress sorely underused this past season, but she was asked to play Betty as a one-note shrew for the majority of her screen time. There were glimpses of the broken woman inside the monster here and there, but unfortunately I think Matthew Weiner has turned Betty into a character Mad Men fans love to hate. I can't help but view this as a waste of a great actress and a potentially fascinating character. What's your take on Betty now that season 4 is over? Can she be redeemed in the eyes of fans next year, or has the character outlived her usefulness now that both she and Don have moved on? — Donnie
