Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey capped off his first Father's Day by announcing he'll be a father for the second time. The actor's girlfriend, Camila Alves, is pregnant with their second child, McConaughey wrote on his website.

This week on TNT's The Closer (Monday at 9 pm), one of the Major Crimes Division's own — Det. Sgt. David Gabriel — finds himself facing tough questions in the wake of a shooting. Corey Reynolds previewed his character's crisis as well as the introduction of one of Brenda's most formidable foes ever. (Also: Read The Closer creator James Duff's blog about this episode.)
TVGuide.com: The consensus seems to be that this season's first two episodes have been fine and all, but we have yet to get that "wow" episode. Is this week's that episode?
Corey Reynolds: I'd like to think it is. This week's episode is really exciting for a couple of different reasons. For myself personally, acting-wise, it was a bit of a challenge to let myself go through the emotions that take place. And we get a heavyweight guest star coming in this week, with Mary McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica) playing Capt. Raydor. I can assure you, she quickly becomes one of Kyra [Sedgwick]'s most vicious [on-screen] nemeses. (Watch an exclusive video clip below.)
TVGuide.com: Even more so than any slippery suspect, like Jason O'Mara's firebug or Billy Burke's Phillip Stroh?
Reynolds: You'd think that two officers working together would share some commonality, more so than an officer working against a criminal. But ...
On this week's True Blood, Lafayette, ever the survivor, tries to make a deal with his vampire captors. Tara becomes suspicious of Maryann's motives. Jason is a standout at Jesus camp. Maryann tortures Sam, as she delights the patrons of Merlotte's with a little interpretive dance. Sookie gets into trouble with Bill when she lets Jessica visit her family. Meanwhile, Eric has a job for Sookie and Bill, which will have them singing "the stars at night/are big and bright" in no time.

When Scrubs returns for its somewhat unexpected ninth season this fall on ABC, the show will make a move from the halls of Sacred Heart to those of a medical school — with Christopher Turk (played by Donald Faison) and Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) leading the way.
"It's going to be a different show," creator Bill Lawrence told EW's Ausiello. "It'll still be life-and-death stakes, but if the show is just Scrubs again in the hospital with a different person's voiceover, it would be a disaster, and people would be mad."
While Cox and Turk will now be teaching and the setting will ...

Watch and discuss the new MMM after the jump!
Sunday's True Blood premiere answered at least one burning question: Is Lafayette alive? Answer: Yes! Nobody is more surprised by this turn of events than Nelsan Ellis, the actor who plays Lafayette.
As a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse novel series, on which Alan Ball based the vampire drama for HBO, Ellis knew that Lafayette, Merlotte's wisecracking cook — and part-time pornographer/drug dealer — is totally dunzo after Book 1. When he arrived on set for the finale episode's table read, he prepared himself for the end. "I thought, this was fun, time to look for the next gig," he says. What changed? Read on...
