Winter Olympics - Hongbo Zhao and Xue Shen
A dream that started 18 years ago culminated in Olympic gold, while one of the longest streaks in sports ended.
China's Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo won the figure skating pairs title Monday at the Winter Olympics, capturing the one honor that had eluded them since they first started skating together in 1992. With 216.57 points, they became the first pairs winners from China — and snapped Russia's 46-year reign in the event, a run that spanned 12 Olympics.

The last time an American man won Olympic figure skating gold, Evan Lysacek was a toddler. That was in 1988 when Brian Boitano edged Canadian Brian Orser in the Battle of the Brians on Orser's home turf in Calgary. Twenty-two years later, the Winter Olympics are back in Canada, and Lysacek, the defending world champion, is seen as the one who can end the U.S. drought. "Scott Hamilton is a good friend of mine, and he keeps telling me that most U.S. world champions have won the Olympics," Lysacek, 24, tells TVGuide.com. "But I'm just going to do my best. I'm the type of competitor that just goes about my business and handles things when I get there." Lysacek, who finished second at nationals behind Jeremy Abbott and ahead of Johnny Weir, has his work cut out for him with a loaded international field that includes defending champion Evgeni Plushenko. See what he has to say about his competition, whether he will throw a high-scoring quadruple jump and why the men's team is "going to take on the world."

Campbell Scott, Damages
Campbell Scott isn't a familiar face to the average TV viewer.
Sure, he's the son of George C. Scott and Colleen Dewhurst, and he's been a working actor since 1986. But other than some brief appearances on recent TV series (Six Degrees, Royal Pains) and some big Hollywood films in the early '90s (Singles), Campbell Scott has preferred to work in theater and independent films (Roger Dodger).
Campbell Scott joins third season of Damages
So how did he end up going mainstream with FX's twisty legal thriller Damages? "I knew nothing about it — how embarrassing?" Scott tells TVGuide.com. "But when the guys started talking about it, my wife and I watched the first season and we just flipped. It really seemed like a 13-epsiode movie to me. It seemed to be really well-written and beautifully performed. I thought, 'That's the kind of television you want to be involved with.'"
And then there is the chance for Scott to play something new. As Joe Tobin, the troubled son of a man who's pulled off the largest Ponzi scheme in history...
