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

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

Matt's Weekend Picks: March 4-6

Kathy Griffin

The Defenders (Friday, 8/7c, CBS)
One week before she begins a limited run on Broadway — and let's hope HBO or somebody records THAT show! — the irrepressible Kathy Griffin goes to Las Vegas in a guest shot on this struggling courtroom drama. She is cast to type as a brash insult comic sued for offending one of her audience victims (What, Joan Rivers was busy?) In the subplot, the son of a hotel owner turns to buddy lawyers Nick and Pete for help after he wakes up to find a casino host strangled in a hot tub. What are the odds he's guilty? ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: John Travolta To Be a Sweathog Again

Welcome Back Kotter

After years of sending his regrets, John Travolta has finally agreed to reunite with his fellow Sweathogs for a Welcome Back, Kotter 35th anniversary reunion at April's TV Land Awards. (Perhaps Tom Hanks reconnecting with his former Bosom Buddies costars at last year's show had a little something to do with convincing him!)

Good for Travolta for hopping on board, considering he... read more

Was The Bold and the Beautiful Too Bold for TV?

Katherine Kelly Lang and Adam Gregory

Did daytime's naughtiest, nerviest soap suddenly get cold feet? The Bold and the Beautiful seemed headed toward a near-incestuous romance between young couturier Thomas Forrester (Adam Gregory) and his dishy stepmom Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang). Then, outta nowhere, Thomas backed off and started hitting on several gals his own age — a bit too desperately if you ask us. His oddball behavior even has his uncle Thorne (Winsor Harmon) suspecting the kid might be gay. What's this all mean?

"We are not backing off ...
