It's a drizzly winter afternoon in Seaside Heights, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi — her newly slimmed-down body poured into a skintight dress that barely covers her backside — sits at the bar, legs crossed. Unlike the drunken, foulmouthed clown she seems to embody much of the time on the MTV reality hit Jersey Shore, Snooki is quiet, even demure, thanks in part to being under the weather. "I was burning up last night," she says. Her fever is accompanied by a sore throat and swollen glands. But, she says, "I know when to turn on the switch."
And turn it on she does, along with her seven other cast mates — Deena Cortese, "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — scattered throughout the Beachcomber Bar and Grill in the town that launched them into pop-culture infamy. The gang, who wrapped...
It's more than a bit ironic that the set of Fox's new drama series The Finder is, well... so darn hard to find. That's probably because the last place anyone would expect to discover a Florida Keys dive bar would be in the middle of a chilly Los Angeles oil field. But sure enough, in a well-lit clearing at the tail end of a dusty trail of pumping derricks, the cameras are rolling on a night scene that finds stars Geoff Stults, Michael Clarke Duncan and Mercedes Masöhn throwing back beers after wrapping their characters' case of the week.
At nearly 6-foot-4 and with perpetual scruff, rugged 34-year-old Stults looks just like the kind of dude who'd work out of a bar in the middle of nowhere, or — as the watering hole is dubbed — The Ends of the Earth.
Stults plays Walter Sherman, an Iraq War veteran-turned-finder of lost people and things. Offering a tour of the set, he explains, "We have the...
So American Idol is back. Yay.
Maybe it's the lingering X Factor hangover, or the fact that The Voice does the early rounds so much better by limiting the tryouts to worthy talent, but Idol's overwrought and too-long auditions are just played. Seriously, for every wacky wannabe or ...

The dazzling actress has returned to her regular role on FX's Justified as Winona Hawkins, the now-pregnant ex-wife of Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant). Meanwhile, she also appeared on the recent season opener of Showtime's Californication as Carrie, the bitter ex-girlfriend of David Duchovny's Hank Moody. Clearly, Zea's got the ex factor.
While it always sucks when White Collar vanishes from our screens, those unwelcome absences also make its returns 10 times more of a reason to celebrate. So we here at the Watercooler have rounded up that many moments from last night's mid-season premiere to express how happy we are to have the delightful caper back again. Of course, we're not the only ones who dig the show so please feel free to add your own reasons in the comments field below. And remember, there can never be enough praise for the Burke-Caffrey bromance.
Before ABC's Revenge came along to revive the prime-time soap in all of its shamelessly melodramatic splendor, there was an irresistible British potboiler called Mistresses, a sort of Desperate Housewreckers about four glam chums with a knack for making a mess of their torrid relationships. Of which they've had plenty.
