Well, kids, it's over. But before we officially stick a fork in Idol Season 10 and get busy forgetting who won (or who we thought should have won), let's look at some of ...
Desperate Housewives' seventh season ended with both a wink to the past and an unsettling nod to the show's future.
After Carlos came to Gaby's rescue by murdering the back-from-the-dead stepfather who'd raped her as a child, the housewives conspired to...
The dog days of summer are about to get hotter — and a whole lot scarier.
Based on the kitschy 1985 Michael J. Fox big-screen comedy about a pubescent, van-surfing furball, MTV's Teen Wolf remake could have been a total mutt. But thanks to some serious tweaking — and a supernaturally attractive cast — the cable net has unleashed a wolf of a different color.
"They said they wanted to...
Friday Night Lights
Friday Night Lights (Friday, 8/7c, NBC)
In their perfect (so far) season, it's now "rivalry week" as the East Dillon Lions take on their arch-rival Dillon Panthers (Coach Taylor's old team) — but the battle with the higher stakes may be the tug of war over star player Vince's future between the Coach and Vince's shady father Ornette. Meanwhile, Billy becomes Luke's personal trainer and puts the poor kid through the paces. Whatever helps you win.

For an American Idol also-ran, Pia Toscano certainly gets around. She's one of the headliners for this year's...
Though she's not known as a basketball fan, Katie Couric was honored Tuesday by the WNBA with the league's 2011 Inspiration Award. The award "recognizes an individual who inspires others through her commitment and dedication to work, family, and community." (Previous winners of the award include Susan Rice, United States ambassador to the United Nations and ABC News' Cokie Roberts and Robin Roberts.)...
The rumors started flying at about 4 pm Pacific time, roughly an hour before American Idol went live to the east coast: Lauren Alaina, one of the last two competitors standing, had no voice, and it would take every last minute up until show time for producers to decide whether or not she could perform...
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson
You'd think that after winning a marathon as grueling as Dancing With The Stars, the winner would be thinking about lounging on a beach somewhere, sipping fruity drinks with little umbrellas. Not Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Hines Ward. The newly crowned Season 12 winner is thinking about summer football practice, the next football season — and having surgery...
What a surprise. They lost Nationals.
Last night, Glee closed out its creatively crippled, nearly intolerable second season with the perfect metaphor for the show itself: No effort, no reward.
For months, the once-fabulous musical has stumbled like a mouthwash-swilling transient, wandering far, far away from what it has claimed to be about (music education in schools) to preach about bullying, canonize Kurt, demonize Rachel and pretty much bum us out. Seriously, Sam's poverty and a funeral episode? Fun, really. Thanks...
Jason Clarke and Matt Lauria

The Shield executive producer Shawn Ryan's high-caliber crime drama was given less than a full season to find an audience before itchy trigger-fingered execs shot it down. What turned out to be the series finale, "Mike Royko's Revenge," tied up an impressive number of loose ends as Det. Jarek Wysocki (the electrifying Jason Clarke) discovered his late brother was a dirty cop — and had left enough evidence ...
