Naomi and Wynonna Judd
The Judds' basic trajectory reads like Grey Gardens in reverse: Naomi and Wynonna made something out of nothing (as opposed to Big and Little Edie Beale, who made nothing out of virtual aristocracy). Still, watching Naomi and Wynonna interact during last night's two-hour premiere of their eponymous OWN show was like watching the country mouse equivalents of the cosmopolitan Beales...

The new site gets a nifty little plug in Monday's episode...
Olivia Wilde and Hugh Laurie, House
There's no denying that Monday's House is special — but not because it's the show's 150th episode.
"I refuse to acknowledge those numbers as milestones," creator and executive producer David Shore tells TVGuide.com. "I hate to pooh-pooh this, but I believe Episode 149 should be just as good as Episode 150. One number's not more important than another number. This is kind of a departure episode, but that's purely coincidental."
Mega Buzz: Clues about Thirteen's return to House
Whether or not all episodes are created equal, this one is emotionally significant, both for Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) and Thirteen (Olivia Wilde), who returns to the show after a mysterious disappearance more than a year ago. And since House and Thirteen's happy reunion takes place outside a New Jersey correctional facility, her return promises to be just as baffling...
The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan
On Sunday's Amazing Race: Unfinished Business, teams traveled to Varanasi, India, where they completed such tasks as hauling hay and making fuel with cow manure. Luckily for Phil Keoghan, who live-tweeted the episode, he didn't get down and dirty because "there is no time" for him to try any of the tasks, he revealed.
Here are five more tidbits we learned from the Amazing host:
Romeo may be portrayed as a flirt on Dancing with the Stars, but Chelsie Hightower says the rapper is all business this week after getting tepid critiques for their rumba. "We are working our butts off!" she tells TVGuide.com. "We joke around, but our main goal is to focus on the dancing and we're working extra-hard this week to come back stronger with our paso doble." Making their comeback slightly more difficult is the show's first classical week, which will feature a 46-piece orchestra for each couple's dance — not exactly the type of music that goes with the paso.
Skeet Ulrich, Caitlin Carmichael
In its 20-plus year history, Law & Order has said goodbye to cast members in many different ways. There are those who simply move to a different gig (we hardly knew you, Sgt. Phil Cerreta). Then there's the more controversial exits, like A.D.A. Claire Kincaid's fatal car crash or Det. Green's resignation after a messy internal affairs investigation.
But, for just the second time in franchise history, an officer will be...
