Clementine Ford, the eldest child of Cybill Shepherd and a recent cast member of The L Word (where she played Molly), is joining The Young and the Restless in the contract role of Mackenzie "Mac" Browning, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Although Mac returns to Genoa City on Wednesday, April 1, her presence will be no joke to ex-husband Billy. The young lovebirds were ...
Who watches the Watchmen? Only weekend box office numbers will tell for sure, but the big-screen adaptation will give its audiences plenty of chances to see it.
Watchmen will open on 3,611 screens this weekend, the most ever for an R-rated film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Additionally, 1,600 locations will offer midnight screenings, including all 124 of the theaters showing the film in IMAX.
Watchmen director Zack Snyder is no stranger to big openings. In March 2007...
America's Next Top Model
Wednesday's ratings roundup:
An audience of 22.5 million total viewers tuned in for American Idol, marking a 9 percent increase over last week's results show. (But really, Tatiana? Oh, the pain had best end tonight.) Knight Rider's series finale managed a distant second with 5.76 million viewers, representing a 21-percent drop-off from the show's debut.
Trailing repeats of CBS sitcoms and Lost, the season premiere of America's Next Top Model averaged 3.89 million viewers over its two-hour run, up 11 percent from its previous opener. Plus, to paraphrase Dr. Johnny Fever, you should see what it's doing with teenage girls!
Opposite a Criminal Minds repeat, Lost won the hour and the demos with 10.61 million viewers, a gain of 800K from last week's Idol-ized outing. In third, Fox's Lie to Me (10.2 mil) was down 9 percent.
Even with CSI: NY and Law & Order serving leftovers, the freshly canceled Life on Mars (5.67 mil) managed just a 100K gain.
The Bachelor, Melissa, Jason
If you're mad at Jason Mesnick for dumping his fiancée on the air, you can stop: Both Mesnick and ex Melissa Rycroft now say they broke up before the taping of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose.
Of course, you now can fire up the ol' outrage over the fact that what we watched Monday night wasn't a breakup at all, but rather a relationship post-mortem presented to viewers in a way that made it look like a breakup.
Heroes, Knight Rider
Some of this TV season's "bubble shows" are starting to pop, while others continue to ride the fence — or even safely hop off.
Case in point: Despite sagging ratings and amid backstage upheavals, Heroes will fight another day. The Peacock's onetime pride and joy is likely to return in the fall for 18 to 20 episodes, NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstad told the Hollywood Reporter, though an actual pick-up order has yet to be placed.
One thing playing in Heroes' favor is ...
Inside the Box, the Shonda Rhimes-produced ABC pilot about a Washington, D.C. network news bureau, has found its female lead, and she is perhaps more Earl Grey than Meredith Grey.
U.K.-bred actress Indira Varma — whom you may know as Niobe from HBO's Rome (and who more recently played Booth's Scotland Yard counterpart on Bones) — will fill the plum role of ...
Namaste, y'all! Wednesday's episode of Lost continues the story of what happened to those remaining on the island, ping-ponging between the moment when Locke left the island and the moments leading up to the arrival of Ajira Airways Flight 316. We learn what happened when Locke turned the frozen donkey wheel, what the Dharma Initiative was like in the 1970s and what the heck LaFleur is.
JC Chasez, America's Best Dance Crew
Between writing and acting, JC Chasez is a busy man these days. But on Thursday, he'll put it all on pause to be front and center to crown the new champions of Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew on the live Season 3 finale (10 pm/ET on MTV). It's down to the all-female Beat Freaks and the momentum-gaining Quest Crew. Who does the former 'N Sync-er want to win? Read below to find out, and to get the scoop on Season 4, his high-flying new movie and if he'll ever follow in Joey Fatone and Lance Bass' footsteps on Dancing with the Stars.
Wait, was that really the Art Garfunkel on the March 1 episode of HBO's Flight of the Conchords (Sundays at 10 pm/ET)? Yes! Conchords' Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie wrote the episode, titled "Prime Minister," around him, and then prayed he'd say yes to a cameo. Garfunkel says he took "a leap a faith" and signed on without seeing a script.
In the episode, Jemaine and Bret book a gig as Simon and Garfunkel lookalikes, where they meet Karen (guest star Mary Lynn Rajskub, 24's Chloe), a woman who asks Jemaine on a date. The catch: He has to wear his Garfunkel costume, even when they have sex — she calls it "Garfunkling." We talked to its namesake about being immortalized by such weird comic geniuses, his recent reunion with Paul Simon and his quest for the perfect Simon and Garfunkel cover song.
Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice
After two seasons of looking for answers, Burn Notice's Michael Westen will finally come face-to-face with the person who promptly ended his career as a spy.
"The person who burned me, you're actually going to meet in the season finale [Thursday at 10 pm/ET, USA]," star Jeffrey Donovan said. "And he's going to have answers that will only satisfy people halfway. Dealing with any kind of covert organization, they can't ever spill the beans totally."
And the perils are aplenty ...
