TV Guide Magazine's Cubicle Confessions gets wild when survival expert and Man vs. Wild star Bear Grylls stops by for an exclusive video interview. Grylls shares his essential survival tips, stresses the importance of never wasting good pee and even reveals the most disgusting thing he's ever eaten! Check out the video after the jump...
For such a critical night of the week as Thursday, you'd think the networks could do better than deliver a pile of new $#*! to their lineups. But with the exception of the CW's already premiered and very promising Nikita, the three new series premiering this Thursday are among the very worst of a lackluster fall lot.

Let's take them in sequential order. Starting at 8/7c with ABC's My Generation, about which I said in TV Guide's Fall Preview issue: "Welcome to 'Gen Zzzz' — as in: Wake me up when these stereotypes get over themselves. Generation's originality gap squanders its distinctive tone and promising young cast."
To elaborate: Bundling tiresome clichés in fancy but irritating new wrapping, My Generation follows nine members of an Austin, Texas high school's Class of 2000 a decade after graduation, as a documentary camera crew follows them around — as it did back in 2000, although apparently that documentary was never released...
Supernatural (Friday, 9/8c, the CW)
Cult alert: This long-running horror show moves to a new night. The story picks up a year after last season's apocalyptic finish, with Sam mysteriously emerging from his hellish purgatory to interrupt brother Dean's domestic bliss. Time to rejoin the fight against evil, this time with the help of their mother's family, led by Grandfather Samuel (The X-Files' Mitch Pileggi). Supernatural follows the final-season premiere of Smallville (8/7c), which is titled "Lazarus" and features a guest appearance by John Schneider as the fallen Jonathan Kent. Sounds like it's going out with a bang...
Hide your socks and your $1600 designer shoes, because the Survivor: Nicaragua crazies have finally come out to play! We learned about Espada and La Flor's more colorful characters in last night's episode, including conflicted swim teacher Holly, who is still torn about voting off former ally Wendy. It seems Wendy left some of her crazy back on the beach, because Holly starts freaking out on the rest...

Headstrong Tiffani Faison came in a close second to winner Harold Dieterle in the show's first season. She's...
ABC's Modern Family might look a bit different when the clan returns tonight at 9/8c. "Lily gained about 700 pounds," says Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell, one of the tot's adoptive pops. "OK, I'm exaggerating. But it's amazing how much she's grown in such a short amount of time."
He could easily be describing the show itself. In a mere year, the hilarious and unabashedly emotional family comedy has ...
On Dexter, no prop is more iconic than the box Dexter Morgan uses to organize blood slides of his victims. And, TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively, star Michael C. Hall gave an original box to his doctor after successful treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year. "He's an oncologist, and I noticed he had his own collection of bone marrow blood slides," says Hall, recovered and back at work on Season 5 (premiering September 26 on Showtime). "Towards the end of my treatment ...
Remember the series My Three Sons? It's looking like Season 8 of NCIS could be subtitled Our Three Fathers. Not only did the kickoff to the season center around Gibbs Sr. — aka Ralph Waite — but teasers were pointedly offered for the imminent returns of DiNozzo Sr. and Ziva Sr. Perhaps the theme music could be temporarily replaced with a nice chorus of that old John Hiatt song, "Your Dad Did."
Warning: This performance may contain a trace of nut. When Days of Our Lives needed someone to play the funeral director at a pet cemetery, they handed the part to French Stewart. The former 3rd Rock From the Sun funnyman will appear on the NBC soap September 27 and 29 in scenes involving Brody (Eric Martsolf) and the theft of his mom's remains. Stewart is popping up a lot lately: He will guest on ...
Dancing with the Stars
"Were you surprised?" asks host Tom Bergeron moments after the show. "I was really surprised. I thought he'd go at least three or four weeks." The "he" in question is David Hasselhoff, the first star bounced from the new season of Dancing With the Stars.
But Hasselhoff knew
