Sherry Lowe, Cynthia Giudici and Catherine Giudici
She had the groom, the ring and the wedding date. All Catherine Giudici needed was a dress. The graphic designer — who met her fiancé, Sean Lowe, on Season 17 of The Bachelor and will marry him live on ABC on Jan. 26 — recently hit a Los Angeles bridal salon.

1. Breaking Bad
What a way to go out — with a bang, on a tragic yet triumphant high, at the peak of popularity and notoriety. What could be more satisfying than that? There wasn't a wasted moment or unexplored opportunity for suspenseful conflict in the intense last chapters of AMC's masterful thriller, charting Walter White's ultimate descent into criminal infamy. Bryan Cranston brilliantly captured the character's mood swings, from wounded pride to murderous rage to sorrow over the family he lost due to his dark machinations. No maddening ambiguities in this grand finale...
The sweet sounds of Michael Bublé will once again serenade viewers during the holiday season when the Canadian crooner headlines his third annual NBC special (Wednesday at 10/9c). "This year, the show is more music-driven and diverse," says Bublé, who included...
The morning show wars may soon be heading to Lifetime. The cable network is looking at adapting Top of the Morning, based on the book of the same name by former New York Times reporter Brian Stelter, into a two-hour TV movie.
The book follows the cutthroat world of morning TV, where ABC's Good Morning America has recently surged while NBC's Today has stumbles in the wake of several missteps — in particular, the messy departure of co-anchor Ann Curry. Also likely to be addressed: GMA anchor Robin Roberts' battle with cancer and triumphant return to the show.

Best Soap: Days of Our Lives and General Hospital (tie)
Hey, we tried to pick one over the other — really, we did — but we simply couldn't. NBC's Days of Our Lives, the soap that once costarred Satan, continued to wow us with its awesomely trashy shocks: Stefano hires a hit man to cut off Rafe's penis! Sonny is forced to deliver his boyfriend's baby! Kristen beds a drugged-out priest and gets it all on video! But mostly Days did what it does best — bring us deeply involving relationship drama with characters we've loved and cherished for decades. Its Emmy Award for Outstanding Daytime Drama in June — the show's first in 35 years — was well-deserved.
My Little Pony Yule Log
The TV yule log has become an unlikely holiday hit across the country every Christmas morning, as TV stations crank up the holiday tunes and keep their cameras trained on a crackling fireplace for hours on end. This year, The Hub Network is enlisting its cult-fave cartoon, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, to put a twist on the tradition.

Question: Announcing a plan to take their top dramas off the air to avoid reruns is one thing, but how do you think ABC is actually going to fare for the next couple of months while Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Once Upon a Time and Revenge take two-month breathers? I am a fan of the airing-consecutively strategy, but I'm afraid they won't stick to this model, because quite frankly, the new shows they are using as substitutes in these timeslots don't look very good. What happens if something bombs? Will they have no choice but to rush these signature shows back to the air sooner?
Kate Meets Castle's Dad
James Brolin returns as Jackson Hunt, the estranged dad of Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), on the Jan. 13 episode of ABC's Castle. He meets his son's fiancée, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), but for most of the episode, she's unaware that the CIA operative is her future father-in-law (he keeps his identity secret to protect his undercover work). "That introduction comes later and is far more awkward," says Fillion.
Who Shot the Daytime Soap? logo
What went wrong? Daytime soaps are currently enjoying one hell of a ratings renaissance but it wasn't that long ago that they were considered dead as disco. How did such once-mighty shows as Guiding Light, As the World Turns, All My Children and One Life to Live get the ax in quick succession? Were there people at the networks who secretly wanted them gone? If so, why? And how come our beloved soaps are suddenly so damn hot again? Will it last?
