Survivor: Nicaragua's Battle of the Ages

Survivor: Nicaragua

Huddled under the jungle canopy on Nicaragua's Pacific coast, a burly Massachusetts fisherman, a dog trainer from the South and a former Yahoo! executive gather around a fire pit for the pep talk of their lives. In the middle of the half-circle sits legendary former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson, whose famously coiffed hair — which he admits will "get messed up sooner rather than later" — has finally met its match under the Central American heat and humidity. It's the day before Survivor: Nicaragua's first immunity challenge, and the coach is in his element, presenting his imaginary playbook to his tribe of misfits, ready to do battle with their much younger and arguably more fit competitors. Little do they know that this season of Survivor was specially designed with the older underdogs in mind.

Outlaw's Jimmy Smits Pursues — and Plays with — Justice

Outlaw

Outlaw, NBC's new series, may have the foundations of a legal drama, but star Jimmy Smits says it is not a procedural show that is just about the cases: It's about the team.

"When audiences know who those characters are, they want to see how those characters are going to react in a particular situation... and we want to go along with the ride in terms of what they do. In this case, they're lawyers," Smits tells TVGuide.com.
