A Night Out with Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman

What's better than breakfast meat and smoother than the jazz stylings of Duke Silver? That'd be Nick Offerman, the Parks and Recreation star who so brilliantly embodies Ron Swanson — director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department and proud libertarian. As the sitcom winds down Season 3, we plied the deadpan actor with cocktails for a peek behind the moustache.

Matt's Weekend Picks: May 13-15

Tom Welling and Erica Durance

Smallville (Friday, 8/7c, The CW)
After 10 seasons of learning-curve, rite-of-passage superheroics, how better to graduate Clark Kent from Smallville than a super-sized two-hour series finale. Michael Rosenbaum returns as Lex Luthor (as fans chant, "It's about time"), and there will be appearances as well ...

Nia Vardalos

If the gropes foisted upon Andy by his sister-in-law Angela look a little too natural in tonight's episode of Cougar Town, they should — guest star Nia Vardalos is costar Ian Gomez's real-life wife.

Exclusive: Phil Keoghan Signs New Deal, Sticks With The Amazing Race

Phil Keoghan

It's another non-elimination round for Phil Keoghan, who has just signed a new deal to continue for several more years as host of CBS' The Amazing Race.

Under the new deal, Keoghan has now been named a co-executive producer of the Race (an acknowledgement that he's already deeply involved with the show's production). "Most of what I do [on Race] is behind-the-scenes," Keoghan says. "My energy has been consumed with other duties besides just being in front of the camera. I've always enjoyed that side of it."

Dancing With the Stars Backstage Report: Romeo's Last Dance

Chelsea Hightower, Romeo

He may have been the most surprising contestant in Dancing With The Stars history. No one, least of all the judges, thought when the season started that they'd be falling in love with the son of Master P, and so disappointed to see him go.

Watercooler: The Voice is a Battlefield

Casey Weston, Tim Mahoney

Well that was... Huh.

Last night, The Voice, which has been awesome, kicked off its Battle Rounds to start paring down the contestants and, well, all we can think of is Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Singers.

By having two members from each of the coaches' teams perform the same song — at the same time — the sing-off bordered on a scream-off at certain points, with enough vocal aerobics and clashing notes to confuse even the most dogged DVR remote. Which one was wailing? Who was flat? And did they really need to pit a Niki against a Vicci?

Cheers & Jeers: The Good Wife's Sensational Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman

Cheers to Sarah Silverman for acquitting herself well on The Good Wife.

The outrageous comic played it straight — well, for her anyway — as the owner of an adulterous dating website who became a suspect in the murder of one of her clients. Silverman held her own in dramatic scenes opposite the formidable Julianna Margulies, as her character's non-monogamous philosophy caused Alicia to ponder her extra-marital attraction to law-firm colleague Will Gardner (Josh Charles).

How The Voice Found Its Singers

The Voice

America's got talent, but not everyone is lining up to audition for TV's growing number of singing competition shows. That's where Michelle McNulty, the casting director for NBC's new hit series The Voice, comes in. McNulty and her team spent months tracking down performers in clubs, at rehearsal studios, on YouTube and via personal contacts in order to find the right contestants.

TV critics have been impressed with the caliber of talent on The Voice, particularly in the premiere episode — and credit much of the show's early success to those performances. "We were looking for singers that might not audition for American Idol or any of those other competition shows," McNulty says. "We were looking for real artists"...
