Following in the wingtipped footsteps of costar Jon Hamm, the Emmy nominee hammed it up hilariously as Steve Austin — not the wrestler, or the Six Million Dollar Man, unless you're blind or senile — a Rhode Island congressional candidate/owner of a local paintball facility. Sure, his literally infantile platform (and his even-less-authentic-than-Julianne-Moore's accent) might have seemed silly, but is "I'm a baby" any more ridiculous of a campaign-commercial theme than Christine O'Donnell's "I'm not a witch"?
Still, Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy...

Lee Majors, who kicked off his career as young buck Heath Barkley in the 1965-69 TV western The Big Valley, has been tapped to play his old character's father, Tom Barkley, in a 2011 big-screen remake. "I have a beard I've been growing since July because they keep pushing back the start date," says Lee, who will get to kiss Jessica Lange (as his wife Victoria Barkley) before he's bumped off. "The story's very true to our original pilot. They just backed it up a few years so you get to know the father and set up his affair with another lady."

Even as the former La Flor and Espada tribes merge into one, two distinct factions are illuminated this week as Marty continues his attack against Jane while power-players Sash and Brenda ponder their next move. Upon returning to camp from Tribal Council, Marty stands by everything he said about Jane: If she makes the final three, she's a guaranteed million-dollar winner. The Marty camp — including Fabio, Dan and Benry — have a plan to blindside Jane by telling the camp they're voting for NaOnka, thereby flushing out her hidden immunity idol and sending Jane packing. Jane, however, has a team of her own in Chase, Purple Kelly, NaOnka and Holly, with Sash and Brenda as the swing votes. Brenda admits that her relationship with Chase has drifted over the past few weeks, and because he's such a worrywart, she's unsure if she can trust him in an alliance...
If your kids start asking about shape-shifters and alternate universes, don't be too scared. They may just be soaking in the Science of Fringe (fox.com/fringe/fringe-science), a joint effort between Fox and the nonprofit Science Olympiad group (recently honored by President Obama) to develop lesson ...

The country-music industry sure is a welcoming bunch. While the genre's heavy hitters — like big winners Miranda Lambert and fiancé Blake Shelton — were the guests of honor at last night's 44th annual CMA Awards, Nashville also rolled out the red carpet for stars from Hollywood, the sports world and even Vegas showrooms.
Here's who we spotted on the rug:
Better with You star Joanna Garcia arrived with ...
For a show that's all about sweets, the Top Chef: Just Desserts final four sure were bitter last night.
By the time they reached the elimination challenge — to create an anniversary cake for the famed, fabulously adorable cake maker Sylvia Weinstock and hubby Ben — the remaining pastry cheftestants had trashed each other so much, it was hard to tell who was behaving the most hatefully. Overdramatic urchin Zac whined to the judges about uber-grumpy Morgan, who proved ...
Since the late 1990s, British imports such as Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Dancing With the Stars and American Idol have become ratings blockbusters in the United States. But stateside success has eluded one of the biggest Brit hits of them all.
It's Top Gear, the rollicking reality/talk-show hybrid from the BBC that features three British automotive journalists gabbing about cars and performing elaborate and occasionally breathtaking stunts and challenges. The series, which has been shown here on BBC America, has been a worldwide sensation for almost 10 years and was recently the subject of a 60 Minutes profile. The studio ...
