Somehow my ticket to mingle with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (that would be William and Kate) during their L.A. visit this past weekend must have been misplaced. No worries. The Mentalist star Owain Yeoman (Wayne Rigsby), one of the honorees at Saturday night's BAFTA Brits to Watch event, phoned me up with a play-by-play of the black tie event, which was attended by the future King and Queen of England, as well as Barbra Streisand, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Jason Bateman, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Rudd.
Futurama was recently picked up for 26 new episodes, which will air on Comedy Central through 2013. But when writers for the animated sci-fi comedy were mapping out the current season (Thursdays, 10/9c), didn't know if this would be their final frontier, so they crafted the season finale (airing September 8), as a potential series ender. "The idea is that it's Futurama reincarnated in three different animation styles...
Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård and Joe Manganiello
In case you haven't noticed, the men of True Blood don't mind taking off their clothes. During wardrobe changes for this cover shoot at the Good Luck Bar in Los Angeles, they casually stripped down to their skivvies in a supersize RV, parked curbside, that doubled as a dressing room. One visitor wasn't exactly sure how to keep from staring. As executive producer Alan Ball puts it, "They're all insanely beautiful."
But it's not just those hot bodies that...
The ladies of Wisteria Lane might want to call in the moving vans. ABC and the producers behind long-running Sunday-night soap Desperate Housewives could decide in a few weeks if the show's upcoming eighth season will be its last.
Creator Marc Cherry and executive producer Bob Daily are both signed to remain with the series through the season, as well as a potential ninth season. But rumblings have started that...

Tonight's bracing premiere of the seventh and final season of TNT's top-rated basic-cable series The Closer involves a chest-thumping rap star, lifeless bodies by the handful and an interrogation scene like no other. Viewers are also introduced to the season's ongoing plotline, which hovers over the show's various murder cases: a wrongful-death lawsuit against the LAPD's Major Crimes deputy chief Brenda Leigh Johnson that threatens to take her whole team down with her.
"I've always said the way she ...
She may be royalty, but Queen Latifah doesn't take herself too seriously. When the executive producer of VH1's new dramedy Single Ladies — about three women navigating relationships in the ATL — decided to guest star on her own series, she chose to send up her image in the tabloids. Tonight, Latifah plays newscaster Sharon Love, who inadvertently reveals she slept with Val (Stacey Dash) while they were roommates in college.
"One drunken night something happened between them," Latifah says with a laugh. "And not to stir the rumor-mill pot, but I have no problem ...
There's not a more popular — or badder — badass in soaps than The Young and the Restless' Victor Newman. But even he's pushing it with the fans. The megalomaniacal patriarch — played by Emmy winner Eric Braeden — earned considerable viewer backlash last month when he threw his ex-wife, Diane (Maura West), from the back of an ambulance and left her bruised and bloodied on the road. (Sure, Di's a lying, conniving skank who was trying to destroy Victor's life, but still!) This week, Victor pays a ...
