What's in store for Jack on Lost? — Edison
MICKEY: Matthew Fox tells us that Dr. Shephard is not so interested in saving people anymore. "For the first time in his life, he's really listening to his own sense of what his fate is. He actually believes he's completely ready to give his life for what he is meant to do on this island." Gulp. That sounds ominous, huh?
Any scoop on the Eric-Calleigh relationship on CSI: Miami? Please tell me the writers plan to give them a happy ending! — JC
ADAM: Would that I could, JC, but I'm leaning toward something a little more...
Sarah Palin fired back at Family Guy after the series' most recent episode indirectly mocked her youngest child, Trig Palin. She called the scene "another kick in the gut" on her Facebook page.
The episode, which aired Sunday, grabbed headlines after Chris...
Another 24 baddie goes down, but this is only the eighth hour of a very long day, and the nuclear threat is far from over.
The hour starts off slow with some more of Walsh and Kevin-Ex's drama — which seems even less compelling after the recap clips ended on Jack with a bag over his head. Unsurprisingly, Kevin and his (still-unnamed?) buddy want to keep using Walsh as their "golden goose," likely helping them score more seized drug money. I think Walsh and her suddenly reappearing Southern accent are the only ones who didn't see that one coming.

The calendar may say February, but it might as well be Halloween with all the ghosts on TV this week. Jay Leno and David Letterman revisit their tortured past, Hiro mourns his lost-in-time love on Heroes, The Good Wife's cheating husband has come home to roost, Claire returns on Lost and the specter of Paula Abdul is straight-up haunting American Idol's Hollywood Week. Welcome to Top Moments: Ghosts of TV Past Edition.
For the second week in a row, ABC's Modern Family posted significant gains, despite going head-to-head with ratings powerhouse American Idol.
Modern Family drew 10.1 million viewers, an increase of 8 percent from last week, and tied its season high in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Its lead-in, The Middle (8.2 million), was also up, improving 11 percent to reach a series high. Faltering against Idol, Cougar Town shed more than 3 million of Family's viewers and fell sharply in the 18-to-49 demo.
Fox, of course, won the night, anchored by Idol (25 million viewers), which was up 4 percent from last week, when it debuted in the 9/8c Wednesday timeslot...
And then there were 71. After the Group Day — the round of the competition when big personalities have a way of derailing big talent — American Idol makes another round of cuts. But the producers do not vary from the formula. Rather than show many new faces, screen time is given to the drama of infighting among group members, leaving viewers unaware of many of the voices who could very well end up in the top 24. (After all, this round only cut 25 singers, but I feel like I wasn't introduced to anyone I hadn't already seen.)
Yes, the rehearsals went late into the night. Yes, there were last-minute group changes and major diva power struggles. And yes, plenty of singers forgot their words. Ultimately, I find myself just longing for the voting to start. In the meantime, some thoughts on the groups featured in tonight's episode...
