The Vampire Diaries
Paul Wesley has the prerequisite young Hollywood muscles and tats. But that image of cool is softened by a self-deprecating sense of humor punctuated by frequent chuckling. And when the 28-year-old New Jersey native talks about his girlfriend — Pretty Little Liars' Torrey DeVitto — he sweetly says, "I'm lucky to be with her." That balance of bad boy and gentle romantic has kept fans swooning for Wesley's heroic bloodsucker Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries. "Paul is very funny, charming, winning and a very subtle actor," says exec producer Kevin Williamson. "He's just brilliant." On April 7, The CW hit returns with Stefan trying desperately to keep his human love Elena (Nina Dobrev) safe from Klaus, the übervamp who's hell-bent on sacrificing her. We asked Wesley to give us some scoop about Stefan — and the actor who plays him...
Jorja Fox, Laurence Fishburne and Melinda Clarke
As dominatrix Lady Heather on CSI, Melinda Clarke probably knows all too well the trouble with getting excited prematurely. So maybe that's why, when she got the call to play the character for the sixth time, she was both happy and cautious.
"I had a conversation with Anthony [Zuiker, the show's creator] and was like...
There may be no better opportunity for a first-time winner to take home the Masters crown this year. "Many of the past champions aren't in good form, so watch out for the guys that haven't won or performed well at Augusta before," says CBS golf analyst Ian Baker-Finch. Young guns such as Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Day "have no fear — they feel they can win," golf's most prestigious tournament Baker-Finch says. "They're not going to be too awed by Augusta National." Neither are the players who are "getting towards the twilight of their careers...
Here's one for the etiquette police, and a first for Dancing With the Stars: Talk show host Wendy Williams — the second star this season to be told that her Dancing days are over — decided to skip the traditional "last dance" with her pro partner, Tony Dovolani. "I want to thank the judges, and I want to thank you also, Tony, for teaching me how to dance," said Williams upon her dismissal....
Smallville's passionate fans aren't the only ones having a hard time saying goodbye to the series, which ends its 10-year run on Friday, May 13. Allison Mack, who plays Chloe Sullivan, Clark Kent's longtime-friend-turned-superhero-computer-whiz, decided she couldn't walk away without one final appearance. A series regular for the show's first nine years, Mack signed on for just five episodes this season and had wrapped up that commitment in February. Now in New York City, where she recently finished a run in the Off Broadway play Apple Cove, Mack talked to TV Guide Magazine about her decision to go back one last time, her fervent fans and the next chapter in her life...

The charismatic actor, who spent seven seasons on CBS as streetwise FBI agent Danny Taylor on Without a Trace, resurfaced on the network as CIA operative Ray Sanchez — or "CI-Ray," as DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) dubbed him...
On a busy Wednesday of new TV, we hear a familiar sound. It's the numbing drum roll of broadcast-network mediocrity, which beats on into the late midseason as Fox offers up a new comedy titled Breaking In (9:30/8:30c). Because heaven forbid something might actually break out this year.

This isn't a terrible show, because that might make it memorable. Instead, it falls into that category of being fairly clever without really being funny or all that amusing. A caper series with a high geek factor, Breaking In reminds me of those debates from Chuck's early days...
After seven seasons spent narrating the wacky goings on of Wisteria Lane, Desperate Housewives' late great (and rarely seen) Mary Alice Young will finally be getting more screen time — in Dallas.
On TNT's new Dallas pilot, Brenda Strong will pick up where original Dallas players Victoria Principal and Priscilla Presley left off. She'll play...
Meredith Vieira is expected to leave NBC's Today when her current contract expires later this year, according to a source familiar with her plans.
Vieira has been in discussions with NBC News executives for several months about extending her deal, which is up in September. But the co-anchor is said to be weary of the demanding early morning hours and is ready to move on. Vieira has often said that the health of...
