They're watching you! No, it's not paranoia — it's the premise of NBC's summer psychological thriller Persons Unknown (premiering Monday at 10/9c on NBC).
Created by screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), the 13-episode series ...
So did anyone else bleeping notice the amount of bleeping-bleep bleeping times the MTV folks didn't bleep out a presenter or winner's potty-mouth at the Movie Awards last night? It was bleeping ridiculous, especially since the cusses that slipped past the censors actually killed the humor the producers must have been going for. That harness gag between Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg would have been so much snappier if we weren't all so distracted ...
Friday Night Lights - Zach Gilford
Cheers to Zach Gilford for scoring an emotional touchdown on Friday Night Lights. Ex-Panther quarterback Matt Saracen may have graduated from West Dillon High, but the deeply sympathetic character has thankfully stuck around the Texas town, delivering pizzas, taking care of his Alzheimer's-stricken grandma (Louanne Stephens), interning with a misanthropic artist (John Diehl) and clinging to his college-bound girlfriend (Aimee Teagarden).

Smash His Camera
(Monday, 9/8c, HBO) Before Lady Gaga began singing about paparazzi, Ron Galella was the most infamous shooter in the trade, sued by Jackie O and punched by Brando. This award-winning documentary tells his side of the star-gazing story.
(Tuesday, 9/8c, Fox) The first season ends with New Directions competing at Regionals, though not without some Sue Sylvester mischief—and a special-delivery baby drama from Quinn-to distract the singing heroes.
It's no secret that Larry David is said to have a prickly personality — he's managed to parlay that reputation into HBO's longest-running series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, which hilariously parlays that persona to its "Heart-of-Darkness" extremes. Some interviewers use their profiles of him to either complain or marvel over his tetchiness.
David was polite, friendly even, when I interviewed him for TV Guide Magazine's current cover story about Curb Your Enthusiasm's premiere on the TV Guide Network, as well as the debut of a new bonus series, Curb: The Discussion, which offers celebrity panelists analyzing Larry's eccentric behavior. We met in his office in Santa Monica — there's a putting green in the hall leading to his office, and another inside it. He asked me if I'd mind if he swung a golf club during the interview, but only did it a couple of times before sitting and getting down to business.
His office has a faux-poster advertising his appearance in The Producers (Curb's Season 4 storyline), some baseball-stadium photos, and a gigantic print featuring a clown alongside the legend, "Jokes that injure others, waste time, hurt records, are never jokes. Let's think twice." (This piece of art has appeared, briefly, on the show.) And though he was resolute in his refusal to discuss plot points in Curb's upcoming eighth season (which will air on HBO in 2011), a few out-of-context plot points on the white board in his office read: ...
Tim Roth, Lie To Me
The quivering lip. The raised brow. Human lie detector Cal Lightman can read you like a book. But just as fun is interrogating Tim Roth for clues about Lie to Me's return Monday at 8/7c on Fox...
Now this is Big Love! Days of Our Lives will celebrate the life, and honor the passing, of legendary actress Frances Reid with a farewell that's unprecedented in soap history. The beloved veteran, who played Salem matriarch Alice Horton from the show's debut in 1965 until her health became too fragile in 2007, died last February at age 95. On June 9, Days viewers will learn that Alice is rapidly declining, at which point several characters from the past will gather for a final visit...

Rue McClanahan, who passed away June 3 after suffering a massive stroke, is remembered fondly by her former costars. "Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasured our relationship," Betty White, McClanahan's costar on The Golden Girls, said in a statement. "It hurts more than I ...
