Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer
It's a Grand Slam for charity when Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal play back-to-back exhibitions today and Wednesday. The tennis aces, who usually meet only in the finals of major tournaments, will face off on consecutive days in their respective home countries of Switzerland and Spain, with proceeds going to their charitable efforts in Africa.

TGIT! For the first time since its 2003 debut, makeover series What Not to Wear leaves Friday to take up residence on Tuesday evenings. (9/8c, TLC. Tonight's target: a law student who could double as a pole dancer.) In honor of the big move, hosts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly share some holiday fashion do's and don'ts to keep you off their naughty list. ...
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but for TV, it's kind of a bleak week, ya'll.
Just take last night. While we did find a few originals to keep us busy, the pickins' were slim and, no surprise, mostly reality-based. There was the Survivor finale featuring the franchise's dumbest final four, the Phaedra-Kim snipefest on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Discovery Health's awesomely titled The 8-Limbed Boy, apocalyptic harbinger Bridalplasty, and of course Sarah Palin's Alaska. Or as PETA surely likes to call it, "Snuff Film Weekly."
Some of you saw it coming. A lot of you didn't. Whatever the case, last Friday's General Hospital cliffhanger couldn't have been more delicious! Theo Hoffman, the cranky hypochondriac who is suing the hospital for malpractice, was revealed to be the Balkan! This international crime lord — played by the terrific Daniel Benzali of Murder One fame — seems to be seeking revenge on supermodel Brenda Barrett for the death of his son and now he's secretly wormed his way onto her legal team. It's fabulously creepy! TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with Benzali, who gave us a tantalizing hint of doom to come.
Yvonne Strahovski unveils her new PETA ad, featuring her rescued pooches Chazzie and Wilbur, exclusively for TV Guide Magazine. Unlike in other celeb PETA ads, the actress — who plays Chuck's improbably hot CIA girlfriend on the NBC cult hit Chuck — doesn't bare all. Instead, she donned wings to play her dogs' guardian angel for the animal rights group's "Adopt, Don't Buy," campaign.

Question: I was just watching Human Target, and as someone who lives in San Francisco, I was wondering how often shows are actually shot on location and what are the factor conditions. I get a San Francisco vibe from Human Target, which I didn't get from Monk. Both Dexter and Burn Notice take place in Miami, but I usually get more of a Los Angeles vibe from Dexter. Many shows have episodes that take place at universities and I swear I am always looking at the UCLA campus.
Alanna Ubach scares the hell out of men — and it's proving to be a brilliant career move. The actress currently juggles gigs on two hot cable series, playing Thomas Jane's sexually voracious next-door neighbor Yael on HBO's Hung and Ray Romano's pushy lady love Michelle on TNT's Men of a Certain Age.
In tonight's episode of Men (10/9c, TNT), Michelle spends the night with Romano's character, Joe, then gives him a macho crotch grab before dashing out the door for work. It throws Joe for a loop and straight into the arms of another woman...
The Yuletide episodes of The Closer are true standouts every season, and this one's got it all: holiday hilarity, family dysfunction and, of course, murder. The two-parter opens tonight at 9/8c on TNT with a death on Christmas Eve in a case that threatens to dash everybody's holiday plans. "Brenda [Kyra Sedgwick] and Raydor [Mary McDonnell] always fight to gain control of cases, but they're fighting to give this one away," says exec producer James Duff.
Things get even screwier after Brenda's parents (Frances Sternhagen and Barry Corbin) show up...
