Miley Cyrus

Cheers to Saturday Night Live for getting the most out of guest host Miley Cyrus.

Despite her dual role on Hannah Montana, she's not the world's most versatile actress — that's one of the running gags in SNL's "Miley Cyrus Show" sketch, with Vanessa Bayer as the always overly effusive pop star. So NBC's venerable skitcom carefully cast her in roles she could handle: herself (defending her reputation in a self-aware opening number, "Sorry That I'm Not Perfect," teaching kids how to overact for the Disney Channel and stepping in for fellow Disney ...

Matt's Picks: March 7-10

Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein

House (Monday, 8/7c, Fox)
To escape from a very unpleasant reality — the episode is titled "Bombshells" — Cuddy retreats into a dream world, with elaborate fantasy sequences teaming Cuddy and House in a musical number choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance fave Mia Michaels, as well as homages to the Western and classic sitcoms. It's no laughing matter, though, as Cuddy wonders if House will be... read more

On Set with the Craziest Celebrity Apprentice Cast Yet

The Celebrity Apprentice

Country star John Rich, rapper Lil Jon and actor Gary Busey gather outside a Manhattan pizza joint with a giant inflatable guitar and a handful of fliers. Dressed as a cross between a deranged carnival worker and late-night televangelist, Busey — the natural barker of the bunch — assumes the identity of the "Pepperoni Profit" [sic], screaming at unsuspecting tourists to "stop the bus, turn off the key and get your butts in here!" The ones who oblige him score a slice — and a front-row seat to the spectacle of this season's first Celebrity Apprentice challenge, debuting tonight with a two-hour premiere.

Backstage at American Idol: The Top 13 Revealed

American Idol Top 13

American Idol stage manager Debbie Williams switches on her microphone and trumpets the night's marching orders to a packed-to-the-rafters crowd of more than 800: "There's gonna be stuff you agree with, stuff you disagree with. Let us hear you! Spit it out!"

But Williams doesn't really need to pump up this crowd. Inside a massive studio at CBS Television City in the heart of Los Angeles, this season's electrifying new crop of singers, along with the unexpected, lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry between judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, has created so many good vibrations that the infectious, light-hearted energy has already super-charged the audience. "Lightness! That's the word," says veteran Idol vocal coach Debra Byrd, who says she's in love with the changes to the show (including getting to the Top 10 much faster) wrought by executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick.

Cheers & Jeers: American Idol's J. Lo Note

Jennifer Lopez

Jeers to American Idol for bringing its live results show to a screeching halt to promote Jennifer Lopez's new video, "On the Floor."

With more than 10 minutes left in the telecast, host Ryan Seacrest disingenuously asked J. Lo and her fellow judges if they'd reached a final verdict on the last of the three "wild cards" they were selecting. "It's live TV — we just need a couple more minutes," Lopez pleaded unconvincingly.... read more

Brett Butler on Addiction, Charlie Sheen and Working with Chuck Lorre

Brett Butler

Charlie Sheen may think that he's winning, but Brett Butler knows he's fighting a losing battle.

It was 13 years ago that ABC and producers Carsey-Werner opted to pull the plug on Butler's hit sitcom, Grace Under Fire, after deciding that her addiction to painkillers left her in no condition to continue working. Now living on a farm in Georgia and celebrating 12 years of sobriety, Butler says she's still aghast at the events that led to her show's... read more

New Fringe Trailer Revealed!

Fringe

In an alternate universe, all promos would be this cool. As part of Fox's ongoing campaign to tout Fringe's move to Fridays (complete with a shout-out to one of our shout-outs), they've whipped up another "Fridays Reanimated" trailer that's both mind-bendy and chockfull of crazy-cool bits. Ya got your Walternate, your Sam Weiss, some Peter-Olivia lip-locks, a floating guy, the East River vortex, even a few built-in clues (maybe?) to what may be coming up in the brewing war between our world and that wonky one with all the amber. Check it out after the jump.. read more

Cheers & Jeers: Larenz Tate Gets Justified

Larenz Tate

Cheers to Justified for turning Larenz Tate back into a Menace II Society.

The charismatic actor first broke out as teenage gangsta O-Dog in the Hughes Brothers' 1993 inner-city saga. Since then, he's mostly played nice guys in movies like Love Jones and on TV series like FX's Rescue Me. The cable net's top-notch crime drama let Tate cross over to the wrong side of the law as a violent convict who flees a halfway house — and who happens to be the ex-brother-in-law of Deputy U.S. Marshal Rachel Brooks (Erica Tazel). She teams with Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) to track him down.... read more
