CBS' new View wannabe got off to an awkward start, to say the least. Despite Julie Chen's insistence that she and her five — count 'em! — cohosts had "instant chemistry," mostly it just came off as forced merriment....
Start spreading the news. Patti Stanger is storming New York for her fourth season of Millionaire Matchmaker (Tuesday, 9/8c, Bravo), but from what Los Angeles' most caustic Cupid tells us, she doesn't exactly have it made in Manhattan when it comes to her East Coast clients. Here, she lets loose on the core issues plaguing the Big Apple's moneyed singletons...
The stars of the naughty CBS prime-time soap Falcon Crest (1981—1990) were together again for the first time in two decades on October 12 for a discussion hosted by TV Guide Magazine senior editor William Keck at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, in honor of their upcoming 30th anniversary and last month's Season 2 DVD release.
If The Vampire Diaries is supposed to suffer from a second-season curse, someone forgot to send the supernatural romance the memo. Feeding the public's continuing thirst for vampire love, lust and blood, Season 2's ratings have been steady and fan frenzy has multiplied. The CW's highest-rated series' place in the TV firmament was cemented when Nina Dobrev, who plays long-suffering teen heroine Elena Gilbert (plus her evil vamp doppelgänger, Katherine Pierce), was chosen for Jimmy Fallon's buzzy Emmy opening number. "We're definitely not in a sophomore slump," says exec producer Kevin Williamson. "The actors are still so enthusiastic."
Cartoon Network's latest venture into live-action is its most sophisticated series yet. A mix of teen angst and intricately serialized storytelling, Tower Prep is set at a mysterious, isolated school where kids with special powers are kept against their will — ostensibly to learn how to master their abilities. "This was an idea that always intrigued me ever since I went to boarding school some years back," says series creator Paul Dini, a popular comic-book writer and animation producer (Batman Beyond), who spent a year as a writer on Lost. "I wanted to take what is ...

She's back, bitches! Big Brother 12 firecracker Rachel Reilly, a Las Vegas cocktail waitress before she became a reality-TV villainess, has landed a recurring role on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Did it turn out to be the real thing?

Jennifer Grey trades her Dancing With the Stars spangles for hospital gowns when she guests as the mother of a mysteriously ill baby on tonight's House.

It was the question every Mad Men fan was asking during the Season Four finale, and smirking Roger Sterling summed it up perfectly: "Megan, out there?" Don Draper's impulsive decision to pop the question to his secretary Megan was certainly the whopping shocker of the night, but it wasn't the only one. Turns out Joan didn't have her abortion after all (how's that smirk doing now, Roger?), while Peggy is practically inventing the women's movement, albeit in Topaz pantyhose. Shortly before the finale, TV Guide Magazine spoke to Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner to get his thoughts on a mad, mad, mad, Mad Men season....

The first season of AMC's conspiracy thriller ended with a relatively action-packed episode that answered some key questions while leaving others hanging. James Badge Dale's intelligence analyst Will Travers finally put together all the pieces of the puzzle to determine how API, his thinktank, had manipulated tragic world events for profit and confronted one of the masterminds behind the plan, Truxton Spangler (the brilliantly chilling Michael Cristofer). Meanwhile, Will's ex-bedmate, Andy (Annie Parisse), was revealed to be an operative — who was sadly unable to save widow Katherine Rhumor (Miranda Richardson) from being murdered in the middle of Central Park...
