Oh, honey. No wonder she was sent home.

A couple of weeks ago, I clued you in that a popular Grey's Anatomy couple would be getting engaged and married in the Sept. 23 season premiere. Sworn to secrecy, I could only reveal that the newlyweds-to-be were one of these three couplings: Callie and Arizona, Alex and Lexie or Owen and Cristina.

NBC's sleeper-hit summer game show takes the network's current penny-pinching ethos and turns it into a virtue: The show's stars (aside from chef-turned-host Guy Fieri, who adds just the right amount of extra cheese) are cheap, common household objects like Kleenex boxes, paper clips and water bottles. They're used in challenges that must be completed in 60 seconds for players to advance towards the $1 million jackpot....
As almost everyone on the planet knows, The Oprah Winfrey Show will come to an end this spring after 25 years of groundbreaking interviews, emotional reveals, multiple awards and the best giveaways ever.

Now, almost five years later, the city's unofficial documentarian returns with If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise (tonight, 9/8c, HBO), only to find a way of life that once almost drowned now being smothered in a slick of oil...
Cripes, there wasn't a secret safe last night on True Blood! Before the opening credits even rolled, we found out what Sookie really is: A faerie. Not that it took a Mensa membership to figure that out, after that freaky dream sequence a few weeks back, with all the chicks running around in flowy dresses and soft lighting. Either she was gonna turn out to be a pixie of some sort, or our girl was an escapee from a tampon commercial. But still, the truth finally came out and now we have something to work with...
