Fox on-field analyst Tony Siragusa owns five restaurants in his native New Jersey and helps design home entertainment meccas on his DIY Network series Man Caves. The retired NFL nose tackle also wears a Super Bowl ring, courtesy of his key role on the 2000 Baltimore Ravens. So, we figured the Goose would be the perfect guy to plan the ultimate Super Bowl party — and we were right. Here's how to throw a bodacious bash...
This was a week where history played out before our eyes, with revolution in Egypt catching journalists — including several of TV's biggest news stars (Anderson Cooper, Christiane Amanpour among others) — in the dangerous crossfire. Another colossal winter storm cutting a swath of snowy and icy peril across the country kept millions glued to the Weather Channel (if the elements didn't knock out your cable). And Charlie Sheen's epic real-time E True Hollywood Story continues, shutting down TV's most popular sitcom and challenging Hollywood's priorities in the process.
But hey, what else was on?

HUZZAH! The greatest compliment you can pay any TV show is to want to watch it again the second it's over. And once the February sweeps calms down, that's my plan with this week's delightfully inventive instant-classic episode of...
It was a reunion of sorts when, after almost two years of absence, Gil Grissom (William Petersen) appeared on the February 3 episode of CSI, titled "The Two Mrs. Grissoms."
"We had the perfect story," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn tells TV Guide Magazine about the timing of Petersen's return. "The two...

Nothing in the teen beauty queen-turned-VJ's resumé suggested she could hold her own opposite Emmy winner Tina Fey, but she was sharp, fast and funny as Carmen Chao, an MSNBC anchor of indeterminate ethnicity (in real life, Minnillo's the product of an Irish-Italian dad and a Filipina mom). In an attempt to help Jack's wife, Avery, outmaneuver Carmen for an NBC Nightly News gig, Fey's Liz faked a pregnancy...

NFL is looking to inject a little more relevancy into the big game's timeout. Enter the Black Eyed Peas. With their latest single "The Time (Dirty Bit)," the hard-hitting "Boom Boom Pow" and the ubiquitous "I Gotta Feeling," the popular hip-hop group has a catalog of gridiron-appropriate hits as deep as the competing teams' rosters. Plus, they've got an over-the-top stage show, which should make for a particularly memorable game break. With that in mind, we polled some football-savvy celebs for their favorite Super Sunday memories...

When ABC announced in early January that such network hits as Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Castle, Modern Family, Cougar Town and The Middle would be back for the 2011-12 season, one fan fave was conspicuously missing from the rescue boat. At a presentation of ABC's winter programming, new ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee told reporters he "wasn't quite there yet" regarding a renewal for Desperate Housewives, leaving fans to fret that they were about to spend their final months with Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby.
Now in its seventh season, the primetime soap continues to be a lucrative international ratings winner...
The lovely Jane Seymour has been added to the cast of Castle's upcoming episode set in the world of a fictional daytime soap opera. Jane will play the elegant Gloria Chambers and joins a growing guest cast that includes All My Children favorites Cameron Mathison and Rebecca Budig and The Young and the Restless' Corbin Bernsen.
Though Jane has never appeared on an American daytime soap...
Charlie Sheen's reps are racing to shut down a new Twitter account that claims to belong to the embattled Two and a Half Men actor. Someone using the Twitter handle "@ciestevez" and the name "Carlos Estevez" (Sheen's real name) recently joined the social media site.
The Twitter page also uses a photo of Sheen sitting next to Men co-star Angus T. Jones and contains just one post: "Last I counted I had four beautiful children, Kirstie." The post would seem to be in response to Kirstie Alley, whose Twitter account is one of ten that "Carlos Estevez" is following.
But there's one problem: This isn't really Sheen...
