RuPaul's Drag Race
If you've wondered why RuPaul's Drag Race didn't debut earlier in the reality competition craze, RuPaul says you can blame George W. Bush. The "Supermodel" singer asserts that the "mean-spirited times of the Bush era" weren't right for the show — maybe a Rudy Giuliani administration would have been more drag-friendly? We talked to RuPaul about the challenges facing Drag Race contestants and how Project Runway villain Santino Rice ended up on the panel of judges.

That's just one of the hints Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof dropped about the sixth and final season of the show when we interviewed them at the show's Hawaii premiere party. They also told us a bit about the Man in Black, promised to explain the Smoke Monster, and told us who's really dead...

Mostly known as Liz from the WB series Roswell, Appleby told TVGuide.com she's glad to be back on the network where she got her start, and on a show that's "about people being there for one another."
