One Life to Live's Ilene Kristen Weighs In On Cancellation -- And The Fate of Fraternity Row!

Ilene Kristen, One Life to Live

It's bad enough One Life to Live is going off the air. Now the show's soap-within-a-soap, Fraternity Row, has gotten the ax, too! But can Roxy Balsom save it? The dippy beautician, played by that irrepressible diva Ilene Kristen, is Fraternity Row's number one fan (who knew?) and is leading the charge in Llanview to keep the show on the air. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Kristen who will headline a special fantasy episode of OLTL airing Monday, Dec. 19 in which Roxy faints while visiting the set of Fraternity Row. When she wakes up, she's Lorraine, the leading lady of the show! read more

Critic's Guide to Wednesday TV: Nearing the End of Survivor and X Factor

Ozzy Lusth, Edna Ma

Some thoughts about what's on tonight, starting with the reality contests. Was CBS' Survivor just teasing us with that trailer that showed Edna the Meek possibly upsetting Ozzy the Cocky in the next Redemption Island challenge? We'll believe it when we see it, but it would be nice for something unexpected to happen. The final Upolu 5 have stayed boringly, rigidly loyal to their game plan the last few weeks, but now that it's down to the next-to-last episode (8/7c) — the finale airs as the usual multi-hour extravaganza on Sunday — all bets presumably are off. Could anything keep Coach from making the finals? And if Ozzy somehow is bounced as well, that would make the climactic tribal council more interesting — which isn't the same as memorable.
