People listen when Steve Harvey doles out advice on his namesake talk show, whether it's about courtship, marriage, divorce, child-rearing, or — that touchiest topic of all — money. So what words of wisdom does he have for this fall's new talk-show hosts? We asked. He delivered.
TV Guide Magazine: You, Katie Couric, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake all debuted talk shows in 2012, but you're the only one still standing, and your ratings keep going up. What's your survival secret?
Steve Harvey: Speaking my mind. People get a kick out ...
Shemar Moore, Kristoff St. John
You can go home again — though you might be in for a shock. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore returns to the daytime soap role that put him on the map 20 years ago, Malcolm Winters on CBS's The Young and the Restless. The two-episode experience left Moore, who left the show in 2005, stunned and pretty frazzled. He told TV Guide Magazine all about it.
TV Guide Magazine: Back to the old suds grind, eh? How'd it go in Genoa City?
Shemar Moore: It was both wonderful and scary. It was the same set ...
Citizens of Gotham, you are a strange bunch.
As part of the big push for their pre-Batman drama (debuting Sept. 22), Fox invited fans to recreate the show's movie-style trailer — originally mastered by the...
Ten years after he first hit it big on the charts, rapper-turned-actor Ja Rule has partnered with Queen Latifah to film his home life for MTV. Latifah is among the executive producers on Follow the Rules, which has been ordered to series by the cable network.
The half-hour "comedic docu-series" will center on Ja Rule and his family, including wife Aisha and their two sons, Jeffrey Jr. and Jordan, as well as both his and Aisha's mothers. (Their oldest daughter, Brittney, is in college.)
Disney XD has set a premiere date for Kirby Buckets, an ambitious new comedy that mixes animation with live action. The show will launch Monday, Oct. 20, at 8/7c, followed by a new episode of Lab Rats at 8:30/7:30c.
Kirby Buckets stars Jacob Bertrand (Marvin Marvin) as a 13-year-old who aspires to be a famous animator. The show follows Kirby and his best friends Fish (Mekai Curtis) and Eli (Cade Sutton) as they navigate their unusual small town. Kirby's animated characters (whom only he and the audience can see) also show up.
The National Football League's orbit has expanded so astronomically that it will elbow The Big Bang Theory from Thursday to Monday for several weeks this fall.
Thursday Night Football premieres Sept. 11 on CBS with its lead broadcast team of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. The games will be simulcast on the NFL Network, which takes over the Thursday package at midseason with Nantz and Simms still in the booth.
It's hard to say no to Meredith Vieira. While putting together her new daytime show, NBCUniversal executives let the host pick her executive producer, sidekick, band — even the furniture on her set (a tatty, pet-ravaged couch from her Westchester, New York, home). Perhaps the "suits" — as Vieira calls them — are aware that she is one of the rare TV talents who is not afraid to walk away from it all.
After becoming, at age 35 in 1989, the youngest correspondent ever hired by 60 Minutes, she left the prestigious CBS newsmagazine two years later to have her second child when then-executive producer Don Hewitt refused her request to work part-time. Her very public decision sparked a national conversation on the challenges for women who balance motherhood and career. After an Emmy award-winning stint on the ABC newsmagazine Turning Point, she changed course, becoming a founding panelist on the daytime coffee klatch The View in 1997.

Question: You are probably going to get a lot of angry email about how Orange Is the New Black and True Detective didn't win any of the major Emmys. But I think they may have suffered from submitting in the wrong category, and some of the voters probably didn't want to get more viewers angry after letting both OITNB and True Detective submit in the wrong categories. So glad for Julianna Margulies' win for The Good Wife and Jim Parsons' win for The Big Bang Theory. But the biggest shock for me is Sherlock's three wins, couldn't be any happier. Which win/snub shocked you, and do you think OITNB and True Detective could have won more awards if they had submitted in the proper categories? — Aadil
Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors
Spider-Man is getting an upgrade. In the third season his animated Disney XD series, the popular webslinger gets a promotion to the Avengers, and makes some new friends (and enemies) along the way. The new season — premiering Sunday, Aug. 31 at 9 a.m./8c — also comes with a very Marvel-ous mouthful of new title: Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors.
That's all folks! The final episode of The Looney Tunes Show is going to be super. Cartoon Network's Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck comedy signs off Sunday with a Superman-themed adventure. Bugs recounts his time as the caped crusading SuperRabbit, facing off against Daffy in the role of General Zod and Elmer Fudd as Lex Luthor.
