Lie to Me showrunner Shawn Ryan is leaving the series, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Ryan, 43, is exiting the Fox crime drama to focus on...
Ryan Seacrest, American Idol
And we have the final four! After a night of middling Frank Sinatra covers, America spoke — and it was one more American Idol hopeful for the road. Before that, Lady Gaga brought her brand of weirdness back to the Idol stage, the show continued to dote on Harry Connick Jr. and the contestants sang two (groan) group numbers...
In this week's episode of Glee, the clubbers discover an old video of Sue Sylvester performing Olivia Newton John's "Physical." To make up for their past terrible videos, Olivia and Sue team up to make an updated video for the new generation. Plus: Molly Shannon guest-stars as a perfect foil for Sue, while Mr. Schue starts an investigation into a salacious list about the glee club members.
I will post a full recap of the episode soon. Until then, use the comments section to discuss "Bad Reputation."
Aaron Kelly, Michael Lynche
Harry Connick Jr. was on hand to guide American Idol's five remaining contestants through their performances of Frank Sinatra tunes, and, well, I felt bad for ol' Blue Eyes' daughters, who were sitting in the front row. Although most of Connick's arrangements — yes, in a very nice touch for the show, Harry wrote and performed the arrangements with his own band — were excellent, not all the singers were up to them? So, who did the Chairman of the Board proud?
24 - Katee Sackhoff, Kiefer Sutherland
SPOILER ALERT: This article reveals key details about Monday's episode of 24, so if you haven't watched yet and don't want to know who died and why, stop reading now!
On Monday's episode of 24, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) started off his laser-focused vengeance plan with a bang, shooting and killing shifty mole Dana Walsh (Katee Sackhoff) at point-blank range for what he perceived to be her role in the death of his girlfriend Renee Walker (Annie Wersching). Executive producer Howard Gordon knows that the fans won't be mourning Dana, but with only four hours left before Jack doesn't ride off into the sunset (see below), Gordon thinks it's important to explain what Dana's death represents in what he calls Jack's "descent into darkness."
In this hour, Jack goes further than ever in his quest for revenge, and another 24 villain bites the dust.
This episode picks up right where the last left off, in the middle of Dalia Hassan's United Nations press conference announcing her decision to take her late husband's place and ensure the peace agreement is signed.
If there's an opposite of the U.N. building, it's the dank warehouse where private security company agent Mark Bledsoe (D.B. Sweeney) is currently giving Walsh the water board treatment. And when she won't talk, the advice he offers is chilling, but also darkly funny (if you have a sick sense of humor). "Take short and shallow breaths. You'll recover faster. That way we won't have so much downtime between sessions."
For Lane Bryant, rejection can be a good thing.
Less than a month after a Lane Bryant lingerie ad was turned down by both ABC and Fox, the ad in question has amassed 2.3 million views online in one week, Advertising Age reports.

The Cleveland Show
Could the writers of The Cleveland Show have a future creating rhymes for Kanye West?
"It's like you're painting something to show Picasso," Cleveland Show co-creator and executive producer Mike Henry tells TVGuide.com of writing a rap for West, who voices a character in Sunday's episode. "He read it, and he was laughing. We had a room of five or six guys that wrote the rap, and Kanye joked we should write on his next album."
Check out photos of The Cleveland Show
West, the Grammy-winning rapper who is almost as well known for his antics as his music, voices Kenny West, a small-time rapper and the coolest kid in Stoolbend. When Cleveland Jr. falls for Kenny's girlfriend (voiced by Taraji P. Henson), they stage a rap-off to win the girl's heart.
Henry says getting West on board was a snap...
Tim Urban, American Idol
Tim Urban knows he was the butt of a lot of jokes this season, and the recently eliminated American Idol singer is OK with that.

Urban, who was cut during Hollywood Week but brought back when another semifinalist was disqualified, says cynics and bloggers had their stories written for them before he even finished his first — as Simon Cowell would say, dreadful — performance.
"I feel like I created the perfect storm for Internet buzz," Urban tells TVGuide.com. "I was the alternate who went out the first week and just tanked it. ... I created a storyline right there at the start."
But Urban says it was the drive to change that storyline that helped him make it to the finals and all the way to a seventh-place finish ...
After 33 million votes were cast, American Idol sent another singer home. After a night of mostly solid performances, America's decision was decidedly tough. So, who was the unlucky contestant?
