Priscilla Queen of the DesertHeadline: 65th Annual Tony Awards - ShowVenue: Beacon TheatreLocation: New York, NY United StatesDate: June 12, 2011Credit:

Last time I was in New York City, I took in a performance of the wild, wacky and fabulously over-the-top Bette Midler-produced Broadway musical Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. Tickets ain't cheap. But no worries, TV fans. I've just learned that the cast — led by recent Tony Awards nominee Will Swenson — will perform ...

Elijah Wood Takes a Bite Out of Wilfred

Elijah Wood

For a guy who spent years hanging with Hobbits and Orcs in Middle Earth, it's weird to hear Elijah Wood call Wilfred "the strangest project I've ever done." Especially since it's true.

FX's new comedy is the weirdest show you'll watch all summer, or maybe ever. The hilarity kicks off with — hee hee — a suicide attempt gone wrong. Unable to mix a potent enough pill smoothie, aimless ex-lawyer Ryan (Wood) finds salvation in the form of... read more

Watercooler: Has Flipping Out's Jeff Lewis Finally Calmed Down?

Jeff Lewis

So if the show is called Flipping Out, one would imagine there would be, you know, some flipping out, right? At least maybe a few rage-fueled screaming matches like in seasons past?

Apparently not so much anymore. At least that was the case during last night's fifth-season premiere, which seemed to be all about the softer side of Jeff Lewis. And truth be told, that's OK with us. Especially if it means that the former... read more

Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who played mob daughter Meadow on HBO's The Sopranos, will guest star on the September 18 season finale of Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva. She'll play Tina Howard, described to me as a hard-edged but sweet travel agent with a sense of adventure. read more

Julie Chen Finally Gets to Play Big Brother

Julie Chen

What's Julie Chen doing inside the Big Brother house? To help kick off the 13th season of the CBS reality hit (premiering Thursday at 9/8c) the one and only Chenbot spent four hours playing the game with her chatty cohorts from The Talk before the real contestants showed up. Footage of that will air on The Talk Thursday. Chen gave TV Guide Magazine the scoop.

TV Guide Magazine: You've hosted Big Brother since 2000 but we always see you outside the house playing puppet-master. How'd it feel to be a contestant?
Chen: I was so excited! After all these years of hosting, I finally got to play the game and I was so ready! The day we got our official instruction sheet with all the ground rules I felt like the houseguests do when they're ...

Watercooler: Pretty Little Lovin' for Jason and Aria?

Lucy Hale

OK, what was that?

Did y'all catch that business going on between Aria and Jason on last night's Pretty Little Liars? Yeah, the shirtless basketball — "I liked your pink hair" ­— meaningful glances exchange about halfway through the episode. That one.

We knew there was gonna be ...

Meet the Big Brother 13 Houseguests

Big Brother 13

Allison Grodner is one tough interview. The big cheese at CBS's Big Brother franchise is maddeningly fond of peppering her answers with evasive wisecracks and un-informational silences, along with the occasional, oh-so-expected catchphrase "Expect the unexpected." But as Thursday's premiere of Big Brother 13 approaches, there's no hiding the exec producer's enthusiasm for this year's houseguests.

"I think this is our most interesting and diverse mix of people yet. We have some very big ...
