Thanks to his role as Capt. William Lennox in the much beloved toy line-turned-blockbuster franchise Transformers, Josh Duhamel knows a thing or two about fanboys. Now the 37-year-old actor is channeling his inner geek, going behind the counter as a comic-book store owner named Oz on Nickelodeon's animated series Fanboy & Chum Chum.
It's going to be a showdown of Olympic proportions on the 200th episode of Dancing with the Stars, as Season 6 champ Kristi Yamaguchi and Season 4 winner Apolo Anton Ohno lead the top 6 pairs in a group dance face-off. "It's going to be fun and intense!" Yamaguchi, who won with Mark Ballas, tells TVGuide.com. "It's just an honor to be asked back for such a big celebration. I think a lot of us have incredible, positive, fun memories of our experience on the show, and to be able to play such a great part in such a big episode — I couldn't ask for more." So what's the former figure skater's plan of attack to take down her fellow Olympic gold medalist's team?

Yamaguchi: Yes! We alternated with picks. Apolo won ...
Kyle Riabko and Trevor Donovan
Since discovering he'd drunkenly hooked up with a male classmate in the season premiere, the frustration of 90210's Teddy has combusted in angry and violent ways, from firing off an antigay slur to throwing punches.
Trevor Donovan, who plays Teddy, says the show won't rush his character into a happier, more accepting time — even while it has introduced an apparent love interest for him in Ian. He'll continue to stumble, sometimes aggressively, as he slowly comes to terms with his sexuality. (Coming up: A misguided attempt to figure things out at a gay bar in West Hollywood.)
"Teddy's story has been about how painful and confusing this situation can be, and it won't be OK for him any time soon," Donovan says.
Saturday Night Live
The Women of SNL (Monday, 9/8c, NBC)

Erin Ludwig and Ian Ziering
Ian Ziering and wife Erin are expecting a baby girl, People reports.

A U.S. teen was crowned Miss World 2010.
Alexandria Mills was named the winner in this year's competition. The 18-year-old from Louisville, Ky., became the third ever U.S. contestant to take the title in the pageant's history.
Second place went to...
Bill Hader, Jon Hamm, Nasim Pedrad
Mad Men's Jon Hamm again showed his acting range and comedic chops, hosting his second Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live. This year's costume, he said, was "slightly less nervous" as opposed to last time's "nervous."
The 39-year-old actor's monologue proved that he's just as good as coming up with ad campaigns on the spot as his alter ego Don Draper:
The Walking Dead
The title characters, flesh-eating zombies, stalk the living (human and animal) in this chilling new series. It's a gory, ghoulish goulash of horror, action-adventure and drama, with a sprinkling of macabre humor. Andrew Lincoln stars as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma into a nightmarish, apocalyptic world overrun with these rapacious, stumbling, staggering "walkers." They are quite the scary bunch. Rick wants to find his wife and son, so he heads to Atlanta, which is rumored to be a safe haven. And the game is on. — Ray Stackhouse

Andrew Lincoln, The Walking Dead
If you've seen any zombie film, the flesh-craving creatures of AMC's The Walking Dead aren't exactly novel.
That's not to say that makeup and special effects wizard Gregory Nicotero hasn't seriously outdone himself. Or that being caught on a city block surrounded by hundreds of soulless, hungry ghouls isn't terrifying. It's just that this story is about more than delivering a few scares.

"The most compelling part of the series is how emotionally involved you become in these characters' lives," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (Terminator, Aliens) tells TVGuide.com. "Even though I've read all the scripts and was there when it was shot, I still find myself becoming surprisingly emotional in almost every episode over something the characters are having to endure. To me, that is unexpected and remarkable."
That idea was paramount for Hurd's collaborator, writer-producer-director Frank Darabont, who tried for years to get an adaptation Robert Kirman's beloved series of comic books off the ground...
