Magnum P.I.-turned-NYPD Commissioner Tom Selleck tops the list of cops, but CBS' rookie hit has also gotten Donnie Wahlberg — who traded NKOTB for the LAPD in NBC's underrated 2002-2003 crime drama Boomtown — back on the beat as his son, hotshot detective Danny Reagan. Meanwhile, Nicholas Turturro, who served seven seasons as Det. James Martinez on ABC's NYPD Blue, has rejoined the force as Sgt. Anthony Renzulli, the seen-it-all partner of newbie patrolman Jamie Reagan...
It's time to discuss an important matter, folks. A problem affecting millions of people across the country, some who have gone years without knowing it or seeking help. An epidemic, really. It's a condition we have come to identify as IAFS. Idol Audition Fatigue Syndrome, a painful, at times devastatingly severe reaction to too many American Idol tryout episodes...
Diagnosis: Breakup? All's not sunny for Hamptons doc Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) and his rather coldhearted girlfriend, Dr. Emily Peck (Anastasia Griffith), on tonight's Royal Pains when the two physicians clash. "They are going to have their biggest fight yet," reveals executive producer Andrew Lenchewski. "It's going to start as something medical that illuminates the larger divide between them, and the types of relationships that they each want to be in."

Grease Sing-A-Long (Friday, 7/6c, Oxygen)
You can do the hand jive and croon along to "Summer Nights," turning your TV room into a karaoke parlor, as Oxygen kicks off a "Gleek-end" of musical programming with a sing-a-long version of the hit musical movie. While you ask yourself how long it will be before Glee devotes an entire episode to this teen favorite, buckle up for a 12-hour Glee marathon on Saturday, starting at 11/10c in the morning, featuring episodes from the first two seasons (including the tributes to Madonna, Britney Spears and The Rocky Horror Picture Show)...
TLC is hitting the pre-teen party circuit. Outrageous Kid Parties, the cable network's next series, will deliver exactly what the title promises: a look inside big-budget, out-of-control kiddie parties. Insiders describe it as a cross between TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras and MTV's My Super Sweet 16.
The Bold and the Beautiful can be wildly goofy and trash-tastic — and we do love that! — but the CBS soap turns deadly serious for its 6,000th episode on February 7. That's when stage 4 lung-cancer patient Stephanie Forrester, played by Susan Flannery, and several actual lung-cancer survivors — including Desperate Housewives star Kathryn Joosten and Chinese opera diva Zheng Cao — will attempt an intervention to convince Nick (Jack Wagner) that he needs to deal with his addiction to cigar smoking. TV Guide Magazine got a rare chance to speak with the ultra-private, four-time Emmy winning Flannery — herself a cancer survivor — and got her take on this groundbreaking story.
