Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains - Colby Donaldson
Even though Colby Donaldson holds the record for most individual immunity challenge wins, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' last Hero drew criticism from fans when he failed to live up to his reputation. The Australian Outback runner-up doesn't care about his uneven performance now that he's changed jobs from being a reality show contestant to a reality show host. "The food and lodging is much better on the other side of it," Donaldson says of his new History channel show...
Matthew Gray Gubler
Like the skilled chess player Dr. Spencer Reid is, Matthew Gray Gubler was thinking ahead when he cut his hair last month (and he didn't do it himself this time).
"Every year, they do these cliff-hangers, so it's like, if you want to change anything, you have to ...
CSI's season-long hunt for Dr. Jekyll will finally come to a close, thanks to another serial murderer, Nate Haskell, aka The Dick and Jane Killer (Bill Irwin).

At the end of last week's episode, Haskell told Dr. Ray Langtson (Laurence Fishburne) that he knows Dr. Jekyll's true identity. The finale (Thursday at 9/8c on CBS) features Haskell as the Hannibal Lecter to Langston's Agent Starling in a Silence of the Lambs-esque cat-and-mouse game.
"How much of what Haskell is giving them is truth?" executive producer Carol Mendelsohn tells TVGuide.com, noting that Captain Brass will be furious that the team is trusting a convicted killer to help. "Langston believes that in the lies are some truths, and that the truths that Haskell is spinning will actually help in the investigation. And little by little, they do get closer to Dr. Jekyll."

Russell Hantz, Survivor
After his aggressive social game and knack for finding immunity idols without clues on Survivor: Samoa last year, Russell Hantz cemented his status as one of the biggest villains in Survivor history with his performance on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. Russell was a natural fit for the Villains team, but his aggressive tactics throughout Season 20 led to getting zero votes at the final Tribal Council. Hantz spoke with TVGuide.com about Parvati Shallow, Sandra Diaz-Twine and why the game of Survivor needs to be...
Jim Parsons and William Shatner
CBS will add only five new series to its fall lineup, taking an if-it-ain't broke approach that will bring back 18 series, though some of them will be in unproven new time slots. The male-dominated new shows include the previously anticipated Hawaii Five-0 reboot, a new legal drama, The Defenders, starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell, a family cop drama starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg, and $#*! My Dad Says, a William Shatner vehicle inspired ...
Parvati Shallow, Survivor
Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains runner-up Parvati Shallow holds the record for most days of any Survivor castaway in history. But those 114 days of game play (in Cook Islands, Micronesia and current season) also made her a big target, forcing her to align with Russell Hantz. Parvati's close ties with Russell may have helped take her to the end, but being associated with one of the game's biggest Villains ultimately cost her the $1 million prize, which went to Sandra Diaz-Twine. Shallow talked with TVGuide.com about how she knew Sandra was a serious threat, how the Villains outlasted the Heroes and what she really thinks of Russell...
How I Met Your Mother - Josh Radnor, Judy Greer
The message of this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother: Everyone has baggage — but mostly it's just Ted. Also, Tony's kind of a tool, Marshall's too nice, and apparently Barney takes pleasure in a good chick flick now and again.
The episode starts with Papa Ted telling his kids that dating in your 30s is much different than dating in your 20s. Once you're in your 30s, you have to realize everyone has baggage. We see Ted walking with a lovely woman when her phone rings. She self-consciously tells Ted it's her ex; they've been making an effort to stay friends. That seems perfectly reasonable — but oh wait.
