What's the deal with Auggie Anderson, the blind CIA tech ops agent on Covert Affairs?
It's not every day that you see a blind guy manning a computer station containing international government secrets—and that's exactly the point. "It is an extreme choice and we haven't really seen it done before," says exec producer Dave Bartis of Auggie, played by Christopher Gorham.

Cheers to Psych for adding slap-shtick to its repertoire.
The USA Network hit is known for the witty repartee between fake psychic Shawn (James Roday) and his trusty partner Gus (Dulé Hill). But the comic highlights of the Season 5 premiere, in which the duo got mixed up in a Romeo & Juliet-style dispute between warring Chinese triad gangs, were the fall-down-funny fight scenes. Most of them involved Shawn getting his (wise)-ass kicked, and Roday — no doubt assisted by a stunt double — pulled them off with aplomb...

Jeers to Hot in Cleveland for proving it's not hip to be square.
TV Land's old-school sitcom went back in time to miscast '80s nice-guy pop star Huey Lewis as bad-boy rocker Johnny Revere. (He was almost as convincing as Greg Brady when he posed as rock star Johnny Bravo.) Reuniting with old flame Victoria (Wendie Malick) at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame event...
The American public has a love-hate relationship with soccer, so it was fitting that the U.S. national team's recent run at the World Cup was both exhilarating and maddening. Though they had a tendency to surrender early goals, the squad's scrappy resilience earned them new fans — and impressive TV ratings. "I thought we played pretty well for the most part," midfielder Landon Donovan says of his team, which lost a frustrating game to Ghana in the Round of 16...
