Modern Family's Sofía Vergara has been named the No. 1 Most Desirable Woman of 2012 by AskMen.com. In a tally of more than 1 million international votes for the site's annual list of the "Top 99 Most Desirable Women," the Colombian-born actress took the top spot.
On Tuesday's episode of Glee, Mr. Schue's whiteboard lesson du jour was WWMJD, or "What would Michael Jackson do?" And while there was no shortage of attention paid to the King of Pop — the gang sang no less than 9 numbers, which seems like a record -- the episode's real theme was all about what lies ahead for Glee's graduating class.

Hugh Laurie, Teri Hatcher, Mariska Hargitay

Thanks for the preview of next week's House. Anything else you can tell me? — Alex
ADAM: While lots of (deserved) attention has been paid to Jeffrey Wright's excellent guest turn as a neurologist deciding House's fate, don't take your eyes off the rest of the team. The incident that leads to the investigation leaves a major character fighting serious injuries that could upend his or her future on the show. And the crippling fallout will even have Dr. Crankypants uttering the words — gasp! — "I'm sorry."
Is Julie really pregnant on Desperate Housewives? — Jaime
NATALIE: The promos don't lie, and neither do we. Susan is going to be a grandma. The surprise twist? The father...
