Exclusive: Lauralee Bell Returns to The Young and the Restless

Lauralee Bell

Get ready to relive a nightmare! Longtime fan fave Lauralee Bell is heading back to CBS's The Young and the Restless for a series of episodes starting November 9 that'll be packed with juicy flashbacks — circa 2001-03 — featuring Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria.

Just before Longoria hit Wisteria Lane, she played Genoa City nutjob Isabella Braña, a former prostie who clashed with Bell's character, Christine, and made her life a living hell. Isabella not only got pregnant by Christine's husband, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), but later faked... read more

Matt's Guide to Thursday TV: Parks By the Book, Grey's Guys Step Up, and More!

Amy Poehler

Leslie Knope has literally written the book on Pawnee, Indiana. (Actually, the writers of Parks and Recreation have, and the very amusing mock guidebook — Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America — is available now.) In tonight's Parks episode (NBC, 8:30/7:30c), Leslie's promotional tour for said book lands her on public radio — a satirical spin courtesy of guest Dan Castellaneta (moonlighting from his suddenly contentious Simpsons gig) — and then on Pawnee Today, where the town's chirpiest cheerleader experiences a bit of an identity crisis, courtesy of "Gotcha!" host Joan Calamezzo (the hilarious Mo Gaffney). The episode is just fine, but from what I've skimmed — who has time to read this time of ...

Watercooler: How Hot is Revenge's Ice Queen?

Madeleine Stowe

Do not mess with Revenge's Victoria Grayson. As we've tweeted about before, the woman gives "I will cut you" eyes like nobody's business, and last night, she was no less frightening. Which is why we worship at her well-heeled feet and leapt at the chance to chat up Madeleine Stowe. Just be careful: Stowe says that Victoria may not be the only villainess keeping the Hamptons hopping.

TV Guide Magazine: OK, we love Victoria. She is so nasty!
Stowe:
Oh thank you! I adore [executive producer] Mike Kelley for giving me that kind of latitude. A lot of stuff is going to be happening with her. She has more to hide!

TV Guide Magazine: Sounds like we're going deeper into her backstory...
Stowe:
We have been having some major discussions about earlier stories and what has made Victoria the creature she is. And "creature" is the right word! It should be really fascinating. There is an early story of her adolescence that is very... read more

Matt's Guide to Wednesday TV: FX's Horror Story, HBO's Tribute to George Harrison and More

Dylan McDermott

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE A HAUNTED HOME: To hell with Casper. The ghosts are decidedly unfriendly these days. Not content to go "Boo!" in the night, the malevolent spirits that haunt FX's terminally twisted American Horror Story (10/9c) have a tendency to get under the skin, playing sexually charged and violent mind games with their victims.

But how frightening is this haunted-house creep show? Depends on whether you're of the "less is more" or "more is more" school of terror. Horror Story errs on the side of overkill, reminding us of the perilously thin line between what's scary and just plain silly. From Ryan Murphy (Glee) in his garishly gothic psychosexual Nip/Tuck mode of wretched excess, this is so overstuffed and disjointed in its reckless piling on of nasty shocks-for-shock's-sake, it often feels as if it were edited with a Cuisinart on "chain saw" setting.

Still, I defy you not to get goose bumps anytime a character descends into the Cellar Where Disgusting Evil Lurks, starting with the classic prologue — set in 1978, the year Halloween premiered, and ...

Kristin Cavallari Gets the Boot on Dancing With the Stars

Kristin Cavallari

Don't let the scattered boos from the audience fool you: The Dancing With the Stars crowd wasn't all that upset when reality star Kristin Cavallari was told she was headed for the hills.  There was nothing close to the outrage displayed during DWTS's most shocking elimination ever, in Season 5, when the super-talented and chock full of personality Disney kid, Sabrina Byran (also partnered by pro Mark Ballas), was sent packing.

No, other than head judge Len Goodman crying foul, this was small wave of protest ...

Roger will play a high-powered IRS agent questioned in connection ...

Special Report: TV's Hosts With the Most

Ryan Seacrest

No one has come close to replicating the power and fortune amassed by legendary TV hosts Dick Clark, Merv Griffin and Oprah Winfrey — yet. But American Idol's Ryan Seacrest is on his way, and others are right behind.

Today's TV hosts aren't satisfied with just their day jobs. If you don't have multiple shows, a line of licensed merchandise and a production company, you're not trying hard enough. It's all about creating empires, and... read more

Watercooler: Glee Wows Us Once Again

Amber Riley

Damn, when Glee is good, it is goooood.

Last night, after the new season's "meh" first two outings, the musical got back its groove with a dazzling hour that dared to develop characters, present numbers that beg to be rewatched, and pull on our heartstrings — all in the same episode. It was like we were watching the show we fell in love with when it premiered in 2009.

Except back then, there never would have been so much attention paid to Brittany, Mike Chang, Emma and Mercedes, who all got to shine alongside... read more
