Former Survivor castaways are teaming up for the ultimate alliance: to eliminate cancer. The CBS reality show has joined Stand Up 2 Cancer to form a fundraising team for this year's SU2C Team Challenge. The movement is being led by Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn, who embodies the spirit of a true survivor after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma last year.
"That word 'survivor' holds so much meaning in my life," Zohn tells TV Guide Magazine. "Survivor is a game that touches upon every part of you as a human being, but we all know that cancer is not just a game."
Zohn is being joined by...
Audiences are most familiar with Jimmy Fallon sitting behind his desk on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. However, as the funnyman prepares to host the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on August 29, NBC has released new promos of Fallon wandering the halls of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce—donning his best '60s attire—in three hilarious Mad Men spoofs.
"We made it for our show [Late Night] because we spoof all the shows," Fallon tells TV Guide Magazine. "We asked the Mad Men people for their blessing and they said you can shoot it on our set if you want to!"
The first promo aired...
Jeers to Big Lake for achieving the impossible: making Chris Parnell unfunny.

During his 1999-2006 tenure at SNL, he was like the second coming of Phil Hartman, a chameleon who held sketches together with dead-on deadpan timing. Parnell finally went viral with the digital short "Lazy Sunday," then exited SNL to explore greener prime time pastures. His outlandish cameos...
It's the return of a familiar face and a farewell in the fourth episode of Law & Order: SVU, TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively. First, Gloria Reuben will reprise her role as U.S. Attorney Christine Danielson from several years back and reunite with SVU chief Neal Baer, her former ER producer.
"We're bringing back characters we love...
Don't assume that Daytime Emmy on your mantle means job security! Drew Tyler Bell won the Outstanding Younger Actor trophy just this past June for his role as Thomas Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful but he's now been replaced on the CBS soap by former...
Oh my god, did you hear what Tenley said about Elizabeth? She like, totally, called her out for doing "it" with Kovacs in the shower. I know, right?!
Wow, what a crowd of overgrown high schoolers. Using language like "the outsiders," "the cool kids" and the ever popular "clique," the remaining Bachelor Pad dwellers devolved into vicious, unruly teens last night as they jockeyed for social supremacy within the house. It was like that Wild Kingdom scene in Mean Girls, only with giant fake breasts, oddly hairless, overworked torsos and Chris Harrison as the befuddled principal....
Pretending to be friends on film was easy for Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, who take their more than decade-long friendship to the big screen in the new comedy The Switch, opening August 20.
"It's the kind of chemistry you can only hope for," says director Josh Gordon. "These two have known each other since their 20's, they've partied with each other, so it was great. They showed up on set with more back-story than we ever could have given these characters...
It's bad enough we have to say goodbye to As the World Turns next month, but the thought of not having Elizabeth Hubbard on TV is just too much to bear! A member of daytime royalty and a two-time Emmy winner, Hubbard plays Oakdale megamogul Lucinda Walsh with a fresh, freewheeling inventiveness that always makes her scenes unpredictable and a little bit dangerous. Hubbard demands that we watch her every move with rapt attention — even after 26 years in the part — and that means she doesn't always obey the producers and stick to the script. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the ballsy, irrepressible Hubbard about all things ATWT — the cancellation, her upcoming reunion with Larry Bryggman (Dr. John Dixon) and what it's like to drive her bosses batty...
Kids in the Hall
Memo to the gods of summer TV: Enough already! These are the dog days of August, I understand that all too well (as I wring out my socks after every muggy walk home from work), but the last thing we need in this summer of original-programming bounty is a pack of actual barking dogs pretending to be comedies.

Two make their bow Tuesday night, with back-to-back episodes challenging you to make it to that second half-hour.
First up: ABC Family's retro snooze Melissa & Joey, or: The Manny. Not Manny as in the wonderfully precocious Manny (Rico Rodriguez) of Modern Family, but male nanny, Who's The Boss? style.
Joey Lawrence fills that role, as "Joe," a down-on-his-luck commodities broker who lost his fortune and family in a financial meltdown. Let me be the first to say: "Whoa." He moves in, platonically, to work ...
Turns out you can go home again—you just might not be welcome there. In the new scripted comedy Big Lake (premiering tonight at 10/9c on Comedy Central), Chris Gethard stars as Josh Franklin, a failed financial whiz kid who flees the big city for his Pennsylvania hometown. But Josh's folks aren't exactly thrilled to see him—especially since he lost their nest egg on failed investments.
"His parents outwardly hate him at this point—they take their aggression out on him, and deservedly so," says Gethard, an accomplished improv comic who landed the role after impressing exec producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay on the set of Ferrell's new comedy The Other Guys...
