Keck's Exclusives: Hawaii Five-0 Regular Booked to Law & Order: SVU

Taryn Manning

Watch out Hawaii Five-0. Vultures are circling your seriously underused star Taryn Manning, who was originally described to me as a series regular but has barely appeared on screen as Steve McGarrett's little sis, MaryAnn.  F/X's Sons of Anarchy had wanted Taryn to... read more

Critic's Notebook: Giving Thanks (and No Thanks)

Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, John Noble

Before we settle in for a nice long Thanksgiving weekend, some thoughts on a few of the TV shows and headlines that caught my eye over the last few days—some of which makes me thankful, some not so much.

THANKS to Fox for suddenly making the midseason interesting with its bold scheduling moves in the new year — though NO THANKS to some of the side-effects (especially involving Fringe) and NO THANKS to breaking the news late on a Friday night, as if we somehow wouldn't take notice... read more

Superhero Sidekicks Take the Spotlight on Cartoon Network's Young Justice

Young Justice

It's not easy being a superhero sidekick. They get no respect, what with overbearing mentors who never think they're ready for the big time. But in the new Cartoon Network series Young Justice, when a new generation of crime fighters is told to cool its heels, they won't take no for an answer. Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis finally get their chance to save the day, but they must do it in the shadows... read more

Nancy O'Dell on Joining Entertainment Tonight and OWN

Nancy O'Dell

When Nancy O'Dell left Access Hollywood at the end of 2009, she thought she would get a bit of a break. Turns out, she was wrong. "Ryan [Seacrest] had too many jobs, and some of the rest of us had to take over some of them," jokes the future co-host of Entertainment Tonight; she joins the show as a special correspondent in January and will take over as co-host when Mary Hart leaves at the end of the season. But in all seriousness, between hosting duties, a second book (Full of Love) and endorsement deals... read more

The cranberry sauce won't be the only thing shaking this Thanksgiving. For the second straight year, ABC is airing a concert special by Beyoncé to funk up your Turkey Day.

Norm Macdonald

Guess who's coming to dinner? Norm MacDonald joins the Hecks at their Thanksgiving feast, bringing a little snark to the table as Mike's tent-dwelling brother, Rusty. The wonderfully deadpan Saturday Night Live vet gives us a little taste of what to expect from tonight's episode of The Middle. ...

Better With You's JoAnna Garcia Talks Babies and Marriage

Joanna Garcia

JoAnna Garcia knows plenty about rocking a chic baby bump. After all, she donned a preggie pillow not once but twice as knocked-up teen Cheyenne on Reba. Now she's wearing it yet again as Better With You's free-spirited Mia, who's pregnant and engaged to a guy she's known for just seven weeks.

But there's still one thing making the 31-year-old actress understandably nervous ... read more

Dancing With the Stars Upset! Bristol Palin Didn't Win

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas

The night may have belonged to Dancing's newly-crowned champion, Jennifer Grey, but the conversation in the ballroom after the finale was all about the woman who came in third, Bristol Palin.  There was relief in many quarters that she hadn't won, and wide admiration for the way she'd handled the firestorm of criticism about her inclusion in the final three.

"I really respect the way Bristol handled all that controversy," says contestant Florence Henderson. "She's a tough kid. I remember being 20 and having to ... read more

Watercooler: Has Glee Become The St. Kurt Show?

Chris Colfer

OK, we've made no secret of our admiration for Glee's bullying story line and have nothing but love for Chris Colfer. It's an important topic and the kid is like seven layers of fabulous, playing the fear and humiliation of a high-school abuse victim. But between his dad's heart attack and the bullying stuff, it's starting to feel like he's the only student at McKinley worthy of a real story arc this season.

Again, the topic is being handled wonderfully, from the teacher-parent meetings, to the way the guys stepped up to defend him against closet-case Karofsky, to Sue's vow to watch his back. It's just that ... read more

Cartoon Network's CGI movie Firebreather Has Daddy Issues

Firebreather

High school, for any kid, is tough enough. But if you're half-human, half-Kaiju (a "monster" in the Godzilla genre), it's a mess. Cartoon Network's first original CGI movie, Firebreather, follows 16-year-old Duncan Rosenblatt (voiced by Jesse Head) as he deals with his unique appearance (scaly skin, pointy teeth, etc.), superhuman abilities, typical girl troubles and an estranged father the size of a skyscraper who now wants a relationship with his son.
