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."
And leave it to Hank's dear old dad, Eddie (Henry Winkler), to further complicate matters...
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.
Dr. Mike Dow
Whether they shoot heroin, compulsively tan or sleep with a hair dryer on the bed, loving someone with an addiction is a 24-hour challenge. So we asked My Strange Addiction's specialist (and Freaky Eaters counselor) Dr. Mike Dow for tips on being part of the solution instead of the problem.
TV Guide Magazine caught up with Forest Whitaker on the set of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, the CBS spin-off debuting February 16 in which he stars as FBI Agent Sam Cooper. He was happy to talk about his new procedural and also about Brick City, the Peabody Award-winning reality show that he produces about the struggles of Newark, New Jersey and its mayor Cory Booker. The riveting series — a sort of nonfiction version of The Wire — returns for Season 2 on February 6. (Sundance Channel, 8/7c)
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Now that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills two-part reunion has wrapped, we figured this would be the perfect time to look back on the ladies' first season and what they left us with last night. Other than a burning need to see the upcoming "Producers' Cut" of the Dinner from Hell that Andy Cohen tweeted about last night. Hurry up and schedule that thing, Bravo! Until then, chew on these goodies...
