Kevin, Big Brother 11
As we head into what could become the major turning point of the season, alliances are put to the test. Some remain strong, others are on the rocks and some are almost undoubtedly dead. So, where does everyone stand? Plus: Who won the veto and which houseguests threw down in a war of words? Let's find out.

I am so over Orson and his lame blackmail scheme. How long before the writers put that story to rest and let Bree and Karl tie the knot on Desperate Housewives? — David
MICKEY: Poor Kyle MacLachlan — the writers really screwed him with all that kleptomania nonsense. The good news (for us, at least) is that Bree's emotional affair with Karl will take on a new dimension when they start sending dirty text messages to each other. As Emily Post might write longhand on personalized stationery: OMG!
Any Fringe scoop? — Lizbeth
MICKEY: Right off the bat in the first episode, one character's alliances will be questioned, and the answer will be heartbreaking...
Big Brother 11, Chima
With the era of the Rat drawn to a close, it falls to Chima to put up first two potential candidates for Big Brother 11 Juror No. 1. Will she stay true to her word and target Russell after their showdown last week? Who else might she put up? Before we get to that, a special guest stops by the house to offer the houseguests their next luxury competition, and Jeff makes sure the audience at home knows who really has the power this week. Let's get to it.
We'd like to respond to a few fan questions before we get into tonight's show.
To Xxlaurahxx, who asked where do spirits go when they go into the Light? Mary Ann Winkowski, our real life ghost buster, tells us that beyond the Light there is an energy that is different than what's on the plain we're on. Check out the video on Mary Ann's website for more details. Once a spirit crosses over into the Light, Mary Ann does not have communication with them — she can only talk with earth-bound spirits. However, this season Melinda will get some insight beyond the Light. So make sure you check in with us on Friday nights because we think you'll be very surprised with what you learn.
To CriminalMindsChick, thanks for your posting. Good to know. We'll give your input some thought.
To Erin Lee — from the question you posted, sounds like ...
Ronnie, Big Brother 11
For longtime Big Brother fan Ronnie Talbott, actually making it onto the show was a dream come true. However, his "master of the game" approach quickly turned into a nightmare when he told one lie too many and was outed to the house as a rat. TVGuide.com chatted with Ronnie about whether he would take back any of those lies, his fiery exit speech to former cliquemate Michele and why he thinks the power of coup d'état won't be a factor in the game.
TVGuide.com: That was some speech you made to Michele. What did she do to you?
Ronnie: Until about five days ago, I had nothing against Michele because ...
Another Thursday night, another eviction. Would Ronnie the Rat finally see his game cut short? Or did he have one final trick up his sleeve? Plus: Who won the power of coup d'état and who became the new head of household? Let's find out.
Skeet Ulrich will guest for three episodes of CSI: NY as a complex and deeply disturbed killer, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Michele, Big Brother 11
Russell's plan to eliminate Ronnie the Rat has only one veto competition standing in its way. But even before Ronnie learns how it will shake out, he goes to desperate lengths to secure his safety. Meanwhile, Russell cooks up a brand new alliance (and rubs a few people the wrong way in the process) and Michele finds herself stuck between the two sides of the house. So, did Ronnie save himself yet again, or is his fate all but sealed? Let's find out.
Former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather has sued network CEO Leslie Moonves and CBS News President Andrew Heyward in an effort to have them reinstated in his $70 million lawsuit against the network.

It's true that the producers of the Emmys have decided to compress this year's telecast using time-shifting. But they promise it's all in service of creating a more entertaining show.
Faced with the prospect of having to present 28 awards in only two hours, nine minutes and 35 seconds, Don Mischer, executive producer of the telecast, outlined what the time-shifting will entail.
