The Big Bang Crew Get Their Comic On

Jim Parsons

At the risk of mixing nerd metaphors, "The Justice League Recombination" — a DC Comics-themed episode of The Big Bang Theory — promises to cause many disturbances in the force. Penny is back with Zack (Brian Thomas Smith), that Tall Drink of Manbot from last season who makes Leonard feel positively pubescent.

"The writers and I were thinking ... read more

Laura Ling Previews Her New Gig on E! Investigates

Laura Ling

While fashion postmortems and true Hollywood stories still make up the bulk of its programming, E! has added some gravitas by tapping journalist Laura Ling as the new host of its documentary series E! Investigates. Tonight at 10/9c, Ling — who endured 140 days of captivity in North Korea after being detained while reporting along the Chinese-North Korean border in 2009 — examines the struggles faced by military wives when their husbands return home from combat. "These spouses are experiencing their own posttraumatic stress. They say goodbye to their husbands, and when they return, often they're not the same," says Ling, whose ordeal helped her bond with the wives.

Watercooler: Fashion Show Outfits the Real Housewives and Inspires Us

Dina Manzo

OK, Bravo really needs to do a Battle of Its Network Stars. They tried something similar back in 2005 with various reality vets from Survivor, The Apprentice, et cetera, but watching last night's Fashion Show — which tasked the designers with making-under the flashy-trashy Real Housewives of New Jersey and Orange County — it became clear the network that's given us so many catfights, bitchy confessionals and borderline personalities has a treasure trove of "stars" within its own ranks to pit against one another.

The Best in Soaps 2010

Don Diamont and Heather Tom

Best Soap: The Bold and the Beautiful

How can one show be both gloriously uplifting and dirty as hell? That's the marvel of B&B! After back-to-back Emmy wins as best soap, this CBS serial should make it three in a row thanks to its daring lung-cancer plot involving big mama Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) who nearly chose death over life. Episodes with Stephanie visiting the homeless on L.A.'s Skid Row, and giving them a chance to tell their life stories, made for important and transcendent TV. read more

How a Former Hooker is Making a Difference

"It is a calling," says Annie Lobért, sounding like a preacher. Though the blonde hair and a generous helping of makeup make her appear more showgirl than altar girl, Lobért is doing God's work with Hookers: Saved on the Strip, a three-part Investigation Discovery miniseries that began last week.
