The Biz: Fox News' Bret Baier on the Network's Big Anniversary

Bret Baier

On October 7, 1996, the "on" switch was thrown at the Fox News Channel — and the TV news universe hasn't been the same since. A one-hour special, Fox News Channel — 15 Years — Fair and Balanced (Friday, 10pm/ET; Saturday, 10pm/ET; and Sunday, 3pm/ET), will reflect on the rise of the cable news ratings leader. Among the Fox News veterans looking back is Special Report anchor Bret Baier, who opened the channel's Atlanta bureau in his apartment with just a fax machine and a cell phone in FNC's early days. The Biz recently talked with Baier, who became anchor of Special Report in 2009, about the anniversary, the channel's critics and his emergence as the face of Fox News in the Beltway.

Why Those Two-Hour Reality Shows Are Here to Stay

Dancing With The Stars

Overwhelmed by all those two-hour reality shows? You're not alone, and even the networks admit that it's a lot to watch. But they still benefit from those supersized series — so expect to see even more shows go the expansion route.

Two-hour episodes used to be rare, and reserved for special milestones. But what was once a stunt is now the norm, as two-hour series like Dancing with the Stars, The Sing-Off, The Biggest Loser and The X-Factor all take up loads of on-air real estate — sometimes eating up as much as four hours of programming a week (if lengthy results shows and recap specials are included).

Watercooler: Are You in League With FX's Raunch-Com?

The League, Seth Rogan

Oh my.

Now, we're no prudes here at the Watercooler, but there are some things we just can not discuss in an open forum. Like most of the stuff that went down last night in the screamingly raucous (and just plain raw) season opener of The League. Honestly, we are still blushing. And giggling.

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
