Stage manager Debbie Williams is "my right hand during these shows," Ryan Seacrest said via Twitter.
A stage manager who has served as American Idol host Ryan Seacrest's "right hand" since Season 1 was injured in one of two on-set accidents that plagued the show's Tuesday-evening production.
During rehearsals and less than two hours before this week's performance show went live, Debbie Williams fell from ...
This Thursday at 9 pm/ET, fans of the CW's Supernatural who already have been unsettled by the warring Winchesters will find much more to make their brothers-loving spines tingle.
As seen in this exclusive preview of the episode "When the Levee Breaks," Sam will involuntarily book a reservation in the subterranean panic room, as Bobby and Dean debate how best to deal with the demon-blood addict.
Whilst Sam is pinned down in his ersatz prison, Dean ridicules his bro's bloodthirstiness, saying it must make him feel "strong, invincible ... a big, bad wolf in a world of little pigs."
Forgetting about Sam for a moment, can the show's fans survive such a verbal beat-down? We dare you to make the jump and watch the video.
All is not entirely well with the Oceanside Wellness gang as ABC's Private Practice serves up its second season finale this Thursday at 10 pm/ET. As Addison fights her feelings for married dad-to-be Noah and one of their own "betrays" the practice, pregnant Violet is thrust to a genuinely shocking set of circumstances. Amy Brenneman spoke with TVGuide.com about where her complicated shrink has been and where she is about to go.
TVGuide.com: First off, congratulations on the Season 3 pick-up. Were you concerned at all?
Amy Brenneman: Uh, no. No. Not really. It would have been odd if we didn't [get picked up].
TVGuide.com: How do you think Violet has changed since Season 1? Was there anything you had hoped for or asked for?
Brenneman: In Season 1 we met Violet at a pretty heightened point in her life, and I always thought she's not go to stay in this place of feel jilted and hysterical. I told [series creator] Shonda [Rhimes], "Listen, I will do whatever you want ...
Consider him saved by the barber.
When TNT premieres the second season of its legal drama Raising the Bar in June, Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Jerry will make an appointment to get his unwieldy mane (revisit it here, if you must) managed.
Jerry's decision to brave the buzzer comes as he reaches another birthday, and is part of a bid to present a more professional appearance to his clients.
As would be the case in real life, the public defender's makeover does not go without mention. For example ...
Ben's near-death and Jin's return to the living are among this season's thumps.
As Lost catches one last breath this week before unfurling the final four episodes of Season 5, we thought it a good time to assess the 13 end-of-episode "thumps" served up thus far.
Make the jump and review the list of moments that wowed us before the screen went to black, and then vote for the one that slammed you deepest into the sofa (or beanbag chair, if you've been appropriately channeling the '70s).
Feel free to elaborate on the thump you're stumping for in the comments section.
"Octo-Mom" Nadya Suleman has revealed new details about her nascent reality show — but the deal isn't done just yet.
On Wednesday, Suleman opened up about the possible show, explaining that it would be a documentary series versus traditional reality fare. "It's going to be..."
Apparently even Simon Cowell is mortal.
The man who brings a certain something to American Idol, its across-the-pond predecessor, X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent (watch clip here), is beginning to question whether he can keep the candle burning at all three ends. And that's not even factoring in his work as a music producer.
"I don't want to come over as whiney, because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs," Cowell tells the UK's Daily Mirror. "But there is a point where ...
Are you ready for an "Octo-Mom" reality show?
Nadya Suleman could have a TV deal "by the end of the week," her lawyer, Jeff Czech, told Us. The "Octo-Mom" met with four production companies this week to explore creating a reality show about life with her 14 children. "Nadya has been interested in, and hoping to find, something not so intrusive to the family and babies while, at the same time, [something to] sort of focus on trying to make a little income for herself," he said.
While no deal has been inked yet, potential Octo-Shows include...
We are sad to report that the identity of the actor who is playing the mysterious Dr. William Bell on Fringe has leaked before he could make a surprise appearance on the season finale.
But we are very happy to report that we've confirmed the actor is Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy! Nimoy's casting, as first reported by the FringeTelevision blog, which we hear is all but a done deal at this point, may finally put to rest all those fan-created conspiracy theories about Dr. Bell (He's a cyborg! He's Nina's prosthetic hand! He's Walter!).
Nimoy is no stranger to J.J. Abrams productions: He also reportedly reprises the role of Spock in a cameo for the wunderkind director's Trek reboot, which hits theaters on May 8. Scuttlebutt says he's a time-traveling, "from the future" Spock, who returns to help the young Spock (Heroes' Zachary Quinto).
Nimoy will first appear in the season finale, and will then recur throughout next season.
What do you think of Nimoy's casting? A fanboy's dream? Too nerdy?
This Wednesday at 9 pm/ET, Discover Channel's MythBusters — led by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage — returns with a "Demolition Derby Special," in which our stalwart experimenters try to flip a bus (à la Speed), compact a compact car, and mimic a remarkable Lexus commercial.
In this video Q&A with TVGuide.com, Hyneman and Savage discuss the difficulty they often face in recreating "once in a million occurrences," with Savage admitting, "Sometimes it really kicks our butt."
Also coming up in the show's seventh season: another Alaska special, in which they try to sail a boat made out of sawdust and ice, a nod to Seinfeld (does double-dipping really spread germs?), and an in-depth expose of, yes, the age-old banana-peel slip. Says Hyneman of their look into the slapstick chestnut, "It's hilarious."
See everything the guys had to share after the jump.
