Jon and Kate Gosselin
Hours after filing for divorce, Jon and Kate Gosselin announced the decision on their show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, saying they had decided to "separate" and were trying to do what was best for their children.
Interviewing separately, both parents used the word "separate" — not divorce. But late in the episode, on-screen text said they had filed Monday for the "dissolution" of their marriage.
Kate said she wasn't "fond" of the idea and was most worried about her children. "How they'll be another statistic," she said. "How they'll be the kids looking back and saying, 'My parents split up when I was fill-in-the-blank age.' That's primarily it, but for myself I don't really want to be alone. I don't want to do this alone, but it's required and I've got to do it."
"It's life, it's a roller coaster. Sometimes it goes off the track," Jon added. "I don't hate Kate, but y'know. I just have to do what's best for me and my kids."

Tate's alter ego, Black Shawn, still has a wild relationship with Colleen Gavin (Natalie Distler). And last week he endured a decidedly un-P.C. hose-down from her father, Tommy (Denis Leary). It's just going to get more dramatic this week when Shawn attends a Gavin family dinner at the request of Colleen's sister. Tate offers a preview of what's to come.
The Superstars, Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Maksim Chmerkovskiy has yet to claim a Dancing with the Stars title, so what's a pro dancer to do? Go for an even bigger title: the Superstars crown. Chmerkovskiy is one of eight celebrities who will be paired with eight athletes in the ABC series (premieres Tuesday, 8 pm/ET) to compete in sporting events to determine the best athlete in the world. "It's an opportunity to do something outside of the dancing realm and to do something and not be judged," he tells TVGuide.com. "Nobody can say [in Italian accent], 'That was not very good!' There's no voting, there's no Bruno, there's no Len." Chmerkovskiy, who will hit Broadway July 25 with fiancée Karina Smirnoff in Burn the Floor, is paired with freestyle skier Kristi Leskinen. See what he has to say about his first meeting with Leskinen, how wedding plans are coming along and his infamous remarks about Melissa Rycroft's inclusion on Dancing last season.

How dead is Reaper? Although star Bret Harrison tells us a comic book about the canceled CW series is in the works, that's the only way the hellish adventures of Sam and Sock are likely to continue anytime soon. Tyler Labine, who played Sock to Harrison's Sam, says syndication speculation is groundless: "I think it's not officially, officially dead but as far as everyone is concerned, it's over," he says. Of course, the two would happily reunite for a movie. "Yeah, the R-rated version of Reaper," Harrison says. "There's a lot of things you do on set before you shoot the actual taping that would be a lot of fun." To mark the second and final season's recent release on DVD, the pair also talked about why they wish the show had gone to hell.
