30 Rock Episode Recap: "The Moms"

America, big changes are happening. I'm back living in Orange County, Calif., after my year at NYU, Aaron Kelly was finally voted off Idol, and 30 Rock wasn't actually that funny this week. As I sat down with 10 of my closet hometown friends to watch Liz and the gang, I expected to be laughing all the way home. Instead, I was amused, a bit confused, and left wanting more. In any event, I shall recap, and you, my commenting audience, can decide whether I'm right, or whether the OC air is getting to my head.

The episode begins with Liz bringing Jack a budget for approval, and reminding him that Mother's Day is just around the corner. Jack freaks out, and as he is running out to make Jonathan order flowers, his mother, Colleen, is waiting at his office door. First and foremost, Elaine Stritch (as Colleen) is the best 30 Rock guest of all time. She manages to make me laugh harder than any actress on television.

7 Things to Watch Out for When Betty White Hosts Saturday Night Live

Betty White

Betty White has popped up everywhere lately — she's in movies and on award shows and in a Super Bowl commercial and, of course, on Craig Ferguson's couch — but the one place she never thought she'd wind up was hosting Saturday Night Live. "Well, at my age, I'm an old broad. ... I said, 'I'd rather watch it than do it,'" she recalls of her initial reaction to the invitation to host.

Her agent, though, really wanted her to do it. "To be invited to do a show as current ...

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 16

With O'Neal gone (tear), the players head back to SoCal to resume the competition. It's been 4 months, and the remaining 6 contestants have lost a whopping total of 805 pounds! So with that achievement, it's time for makeover week! I love seeing how each season's cast undergoes beatification to match their physical — and emotional —transformations.

Although this time around there's no Tim Gunn, it's still fun to watch each person put on clothes they never imagined wearing. But poor Michael still needs to shop at Big and Tall, all by himself. "Who loses 183 pounds and still can't fit into clothes?" he asks. Daris, meanwhile, lets celeb hair stylist Jonathan Anton chop off his locks, and the difference is immediate. As everyone goes to check themselves out, they're surprised by family members who have come to surprise them.

Celebrity Apprentice Episode Recap: Week 8

This week, the two teams must create three 30-second radio commercials for Clockwork Home Services. RockSolid and Tenacity must make one radio spot for each of the company's three different services: plumbing, heating and air conditioning and electricity.

Because this take is very music-related, Bret volunteers to be the project manager for RockSolid, while Summer decides to step it up for Tenacity. After her significant absence last week, Holly says the key is how Summer manages Cyndi.

Michael Douglas: I've Taken Blame About Being a Bad Father

Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas says he takes blame for "being a bad father" as he tried to forge his career and that the family had a lot to do with son Cameron's drug problems and legal troubles.

Cameron Douglas sentenced to five years in prison

The 65-year-old Oscar winner told Matt Lauer during a Today show interview airing Monday he was a bad dad "if being a bad father is working your butt off trying to create a career at one time."

"I've also confessed the fact that I was in rehab 20 years ago," he added. "[His mother] was a very young mother when she had Cameron and her skills were limited to such an extent. The other part of course is genes. I lost a brother with ... read more

The Office Episode Recap: "Body Language"

Love is in the air at the office, and Michael will finally learn of his fate with the bartender he met a few episodes back. Will he finally score, or as Tila Tequila (now Miss Tequila) would say, "his shot at love will end." Get it? A "shot" at love, because she is a bartender, and pours shots?

The episode opens with Michael (aka Miguel) speaking Spanish with Erin. He reveals that since Mexico is North America's "neighbor to the South," everyone should learn the language. We later find out, as he is going around the office attempting to speak with other employees, that he is going on a trip to Cancun. In order to help the boss, Oscar tries to get Michael to learn how to gender-specify words, but instead, he ends up drawing penis and breast pictures on sticky notes, and taping them to objects. The worst part, Michael can't even say "that's what she said" correctly.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "Argus"

After getting a double dose of 30 Rock last week, one episode seems like a let down. However, Fey and the gang live up to the challenge, and produce a hilarious, quite snotty episode that holds up to any comedy around. Bring on the funny, gang.

The episode opens as Liz is picking out her "Vietnamese size two" dress for Cerie's wedding. Jack darts into Liz's office in order to notify her that he has been named in Don Giess' will, and he is ecstatic. All the boss wants is a piece of his hero's life, even "sleddy," Giess' prized boyhood sled.
