The plot thickens. In an effort to do damage control after my recent report that ABC plans to end both All My Children and One Life to Live, a rep for the network emailed me and other suds reporters over the weekend with a tip that veteran scribe Lorraine Broderick has been re-hired as head writer at AMC.
No surprise here. The current head writers, Dave Kreizman and Donna Swajeski, have not been successful and were at the end of their contracts...
Paula Abdul, you have been served.
Long considered the premiere voice of crazy on reality TV, MC Skat Cat's former sidekick is now a mere whisper of weird compared to the bonkers verbosity that is Gary Busey. For weeks, Celebrity Apprentice's wild-eyed Yoda has been offering gems of staggering inanity far more bizarre than even Ms. Abdul's advising American Idol contestants to paint doors with their voices and walk thru them. Or whatever that was...
Someone seems to die in every Desperate Housewives season finale, but I've heard nothing about this year's. Have you? — Kimberly, Austin
Hold on to your napkins! We've heard Susan's macaroni and cheese can be foul — but could it be fatal?
Cheers to The Borgias for bringing Derek Jacobi back where he belongs: in a steamy Roman period piece.

The magnificent British actor first made his name with American audiences as the titular stuttering Roman emperor in the gleefully hedonistic '70s miniseries I, Claudius. Since then, he's appeared in myriad period pieces...

Question: I would like to know your opinion about the Kalinda/Peter reveal on The Good Wife. My initial reaction was concern for Kalinda's and Alicia's friendship. However, in the past week, I have become intrigued by the potential fallout. Not only will this revelation shake the Florrick family, but after two years into the series, it could impact characters like Kalinda, Will, Cary and Eli in a way that the original scandal never did. Also, while overall viewership remains strong, Wife's 18-49 demo has been rather low this season. New competition from Body of Proof will probably not help the situation. Should fans of The Good Wife be concerned about potential cancellation or at least be prepared for a scheduling change for season three? — Rose
Matt Roush: This twist is what we like to call a bona fide bombshell. Couldn't come at a more advantageous time for the show, which thrives on personal and workplace conflict...
Enrique Murciano and Cote de Pablo
NCIS (Tuesday, 8/7c, CBS)
The office watercooler is going to explode when Ziva introduces her new boyfriend — Without a Trace's Enrique Murciano as Ray — to her nosy co-workers. But he's not the only new-ish face making waves. Special Agent Barrett (Brothers & Sisters' Sarah Jane Morris) returns to clash with Gibbs, as she takes lead on a case that may be connected to a port-to-port serial killer, a storyline that continues into next week's episode. Well into its eighth season, NCIS continues to steamroller the competition — which this year includes ABC's No Ordinary Family, which signs off probably for good with a season finale pitting the family of accidental superheroes against the sinister Mrs. X (Lucy Lawless), who has young JJ in her clutches...
It's a good thing Heidi Klum has a great sense of humor. Just moments after telling TV Guide Magazine that she definitely wasn't slime-appropriately dressed, the Gucci-clad supermodel was covered in the famous green gunk at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on April 2. But a little slime shouldn't rattle the host of Lifetime's Seriously Funny Kids, who has learned to expect the unexpected as part of every workday. "I love the challenge of interviewing 12 kids in a day and not knowing what I'm going to get at the end of the day," said Klum. "You laugh all day because they're just silly. They just dance around the set."
She confirms that her other reality show, which will include hubby Seal...
The warlocks were out in full force for the first date of Charlie Sheen's live tour in Detroit on Saturday night — but the crowd quickly turned against the former Two and a Half Men star, who abruptly ended his show after one hour, amid hecklers and boos.
Sheen's profanity-laced live act, which was loosely structured around a faux mobile app called "The Masheen," kicked off with two porn stars singing the National Anthem to a packed crowd of 5,000 at the Fox Theater. Sheen then appeared to a rowdy standing ovation with his...
One Life To Live
It's no April Fools' joke. At the very end of today's episode of One Life to Live, viewers learned that the killer of creepy psychopath Eddie Ford (John Wesley Shipp) is none other than Matthew Buchanan, the high-school junior played by Eddie Alderson. We all know Matthew's mom ...
Think it's easy, being a contestant on American Idol? Try being a 16-year-old who has to squeeze three hours of school into a murderous schedule of rehearsals, fittings, video shoots, guest appearances and chats with the press. For Thia Megia, who was given her walking papers Thursday night, it's an experience she'll always treasure. But the first word out of her mouth when you ask her how she's feeling?
