Rules of Engagement Star Previews New Season

Patrick Warburton

Relationships are never easy, especially for the guys and gals of Rules of Engagement. TVGuide.com caught up with Patrick Warburton — who plays married man Jeff — to get the scoop on what we can expect from the couples in the new season (premieres March 2 at 9:30 pm/ET on CBS), and what David Spade is like when the cameras are off.

TVGuide.com: What can we expect for this upcoming season?
Patrick Warburton: [Jeff] ends up with a new buddy who is gay, unbeknownst to him, so he has to kind of deal with that. He's played by Orlando Jones, who was fun to work with and a good guy. We also have a new character. His name is Timmy and he's the assistant to Russell. He's very refined and witty and sharp and classy and Spade is on the other end of that spectrum, so you put the two of them together and there's just a great humor and chemistry. So we've opened up the show a little bit.

TVGuide.com: What do you think of Jeff and Audrey's relationship as far as getting under each other's skin?
Warburton: Jeff and Audrey can say horrible things to each other, but it comes from a place where they love and respect each other. Jeff's not a total gripe either. He's also attracted to his wife and that's ... read more

Radio Broadcasting Pioneer Paul Harvey Dies at 90

Paul Harvey

Paul Harvey, the distinctly voiced news commentator whose radio career spanned nearly 60 years, died on Saturday in Arizona, a spokesman for ABC Radio Networks tells the Associated Press. He was 90.

A cause of death was not immediately available. Harvey's passing comes less than a year after that of his wife and longtime producer, Lynne.

"My father and mother created from thin air what one day became radio and television news," Paul Harvey Jr. said in a statement. "So in the past year, an industry has lost its godparents and ... millions have lost a friend."

Known for his staccato voice and trademark delivery of "The Rest of the Story" (a feature through which he anecdotally recalled the lives of famous folk), Harvey's career ... read more

Biggest Loser Apologizes After Marathon Controversy

Biggest Loser

Looks like Dane's inspirational "where are they now?" package at the end of Wednesday's Biggest Loser: Couples is now a little less inspiring.

After losing 100 pounds in eight weeks, Dane was booted by his fellow competitors who believed he was a front-runner for the $250,000 grand prize. As is customary, the show followed up on Dane to see if his weight loss has continued at home. The resulting footage showed him training with his wife for a marathon, and concluded with him crossing the finish line at 3 hours and 53 minutes — a remarkable time for even trained runners.

Moving, right? Well it didn't really happen... read more

New Top Chef Hosea: "I'm Not Going to Apologize Because I Beat Them"

Hosea

Top Chef's Hosea Rosenberg's final venison dish has earned him a win, and the blogosphere all is abuzz over it — though not always in a good way. TVGuide.com caught up with the Colorado chef, who spoke candidly about all the haters out there, what the deal was between him and Stefan and if there's any future for him with make-out buddy Leah now that they're both swingin' singles.

TVGuide.com: Congratulations. How does it feel to be the new Top Chef?
Hosea Rosenberg: It's pretty surreal; the whole thing is kind of like a dream. I was home watching with a bunch of people at a viewing party. I hadn't told a single person up until Padma announced me as the winner. I was proud and happy about what I had done, but it was unimaginable.

TVGuide.com: What do you think about Carla listening to Casey's dish suggestions?
Hosea: I can't really say what was happening during the cooking part of it, because I was so busy with my own food. Carla told me right before we went to Judges' Table that not everything made it to her plate, and that she was pretty worried about it. I know Carla took a few suggestions that Casey made that affected her dish. I don't know whose fault that is or why the food came out how it did. Ultimately, it was Carla's meal. It was unfortunate, and I felt terrible standing up there with her.

TVGuide.com: A lot of people are saying that past performances should have been taken into account. What do you think?
Hosea: This competition is about ... read more
