Love it! TV Guide Magazine has learned that the legendary soap scribe Agnes Nixon will make an appearance on One Life to Live before the show ends its run on ABC — and her role is a hoot! Nixon, who created OLTL back in 1968, will play...
Kelsey Grammer was at a Robert Plant concert in Los Angeles this spring when the rocker and his Band of Joy performed the track "Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down." Listening to the song's lyrics as he sat in the Greek Theatre audience, Grammer realized the song was a perfect match for his character on Starz's Boss, the mercurial mayor of Chicago.

They say "Everything's Bigger in Texas," which happens to be the episode title for the premiere of Bravo's Texas-set ninth season of Top Chef (10/9c). And it also may explain why a ginormous platoon of 29 chef-testants descends on the historic Alamo for the first round of competition, and why the process of narrowing the field to a Top 16 can't even be contained within the first pulse-pounding episode.
Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's great, and sometimes it's infuriating. Whatever it is from week to week, Glee is always fun to watch...with others.
Like drinking games, flash mobs and stonings, the musical is best enjoyed in groups, whether they're on your couch, phone or Twitter feed. When it soars — as it did with the episode before its baseball hiatus — we gather 'round to sing its praises, marvel at the "return to form" and express how much we all love the idea of Santana and Mercedes joining Shelby's group. When it's less than awesome, as it was last night, with those blah numbers and that gruelingly overplayed gag about Brittany's obsession with Irish exchange student Rory being a leprechaun, we run ourselves ragged clowning on the show, bouncing bashes off one another like a Sue-Burt showdown.
One of our all-time favorite soap hoppers is making his way to Salem! Daytime Emmy Award winner Ian Buchanan — a veteran of All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Port Charles and General Hospital — is joining the cast of NBC's Days of Our Lives. A Days rep tells TV Guide Magazine that the popular Scotsman will play a character named Ian McAllister, a mega-rich businessman with a powerful and dangerous hold over cosmetics mogul Madison James (Sarah Brown).
Cheers to Conan O'Brien for getting back into an Empire State of mind.

To celebrate his first anniversary on TBS, the carrot-topped cutup has returned to the Big Apple to host a week of shows from the Beacon Theater. And so far, the trip has given Conan — and his show — a jolt of energy. All those downed power lines after the freak Halloween-weekend snowstorm aren't the only live wires in town this week.
Has David Arquette danced his way back into the heart of his estranged wife, Courteney Cox? "No," says Arquette, the latest dancer to be shown the door on Dancing With the Stars.
Sitting in the audience and watching Arquette dance his heart out week after week, there were two things you couldn't miss: First was the joy on the face of his 7-year-old daughter, Coco, and second were the tears in the eyes of Cox, 47, who sat ringside. "I like that people hope for us," says Arquette, 40. "But it really is time to move on."
Denis Leary & Michael J. Fox
"You want us to talk to each other?" Denis Leary jokes, relaxing with his old pal Michael J. Fox. "This is really hard, because we don't have a lot to say to each other. Actually, we do, but it's mostly hockey talk." In fact, Leary, 54, and Fox, 50, share a lot more than their love for the Boston Bruins: They're devoted dads and husbands (Fox married Family Ties costar Tracy Pollan in 1988, one year before Leary wed writer Ann Lembeck) with their own charities: the Leary Firefighters Foundation and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Fox's Emmy-winning role as a hedonistic paraplegic on Leary's recently wrapped drama Rescue Me reignited his acting career, leading to his irreverent turns as an...
Andrew Dice Clay
Andrew Dice Clay is getting another chance to play himself (after the final season of HBO's Entourage). Fox's Raising Hope has invited the potty-mouthed stand-up to appear in the November 29 episode.
In the show, Dice is the celebrity judge of an amateur inventors convention attended by the Chance family. While the Chances have high hopes that their invention will make...
If it feels like a month of Tuesdays since Fox aired new episodes of freshman breakout comedy New Girl (as well as Glee and Raising Hope), you're not far off.
