America's Got Talent didn't find its Susan Boyle this season, so the show is flying her in for the season finale.
Boyle, who took the Internet and the British version of the NBC talent competition by storm earlier this year, will perform on the show's Sept. 16 finale. The appearance will mark the songstress' first trip to the U.S.
Although Boyle came up just short of winning Britain's Got Talent, she gained worldwide fame when a clip of her singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables became a viral sensation. She will release her debut album ...
Every week on Catch It Keep It, we present a challenge to a team of three builders/contestants: Use science, engineering and ingenuity to protect a dazzling prize from a devious machination that is designed to utterly demolish it.
Salivating football fans who can't wait for Sunday's season-opening NFL games will love this week's episode. The prize: tickets to the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl in Florida. The challenge: Move a football through a unique obstacle course inspired by five of the most extreme forces that football players have to face. Let's take a look:
The NFL Way: The coldest game on record is the 1982 AFC Championship game — aka, the "Freezer Bowl."

Diaries' first episode was watched by 4.8 million viewers, enough to top 90210's 2008 debut. The fifth-season-opener of Supernatural, however, didn't hold on to the great lead-in. It drew 3.4 million viewers, a loss of 500,000 from last season's premiere.
The night was still dominated, however, by football. NBC's coverage ...
While the rest of the world was buzzing about Tom DeLay's casting on Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke was busy doing her homework on the former House Majority leader. "I didn't really know anything about him. I'm not kidding," Burke tells TVGuide.com. "But I totally think it is better not to know much about your partner beforehand. I'm not starstruck — ever — and I don't treat them any differently." And she's hoping Dancing fans won't treat DeLay any differently on the show. See what else the two-time champ has to say about her partner and find out why she's no rule-breaker.
