2004 Summer Olympics: Women's Fencing
I think 19-year-old Mariel Zagunis is supercool. Miss Girl Power won the United States its first gold medal for fencing in 100 years! Kudos to her also for getting admitted to Notre Dame — where they're big on fencing — even though she's deferred for a year to focus on her swashbuckling skills. But one question comes to mind: Why do I even give a fig about this Oregonian girl's triumph in a fringe sport? My best friend Troy (who's one of the Fighting Irish himself) says: "Everybody I know is crazy over the Olympics this year. It allows us to take pride in being American without having to involve the government or election drama. It's totally nonpolitical." Troy's definitely on to something there. This is the good kind of reality TV, unlike...

Big Brother 5
Marvin is mouthy in this episode! He's not "pandering to the marketplace" for votes to keep himself in the house, he says. A read more


Oprah Winfrey showed up for jury duty Monday at Chicago's Cook County Criminal Court and was actually assigned to a murder trial! Winfrey, who will earn $17.20 a day for her service, told reporters she didn't think she'd be picked because she's too opinionated. "I'm just hoping it doesn't take longer than a week," she added, "because I've got shows to do." Please, everyone knows the new season of Oprah doesn't start for another month. Nice try, O. read more

Finally! BB5's Jase Evicted

Big Brother 5's Jase Wiley was the unofficial (and very manipulative) leader of the Four Horsemen alliance. As fans will recall, Jase annoyed the housemates with his constant personal grooming and incessant chatter about his imagined resemblance to Brad Pitt. (Yeah, riiight.) Not only did his abrasive, in-your-face behavior make him the most hated man in the house, but according to Nakomis, he really did make a stink with his tendency to pee on things! Here, the 28-year-old (supposed) volunteer fireman from Decatur, Ill., clears the air about the Goth girl's claim, his relationship with superperky Holly and his constant lying. We think he's telling the truth this time...

TV Guide Online: Are you upset about leaving the house?
Jase Wiley:
It is feeling good, to be perfectly honest. I was ecstatic to be out of the house.

TVGO: Really? That's surprising.
My days were done. I came to play hard read more

A hunky FBI agent, a 35-year-old amputee, an unhinged drill sergeant and a young, female sheep farmer are among the 18 contestants competing in Survivor: Vanuatu, Islands of Fire, premiering Sept. 16 on CBS. The latest crop of wannabe actors were unveiled on this morning's Early Show. (For a look at the two new tribes, go to All-Star sweethearts Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich were on hand to weigh in with their early faves — and give host Julie Chen some late-breaking scoop on their upcoming nuptials. Asked whether the ceremony will be televised a la Ryan and Trista, Brkich teased, "It's a pretty big possibility." And in an unbelievable coincidence, so is their divorce! read more

Gilmore Girl's Summer Dish

On last season's Gilmore Girls finale, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) finally heated up her long-simmering romance with short-order cook Luke (Scott Patterson). Of course, we at TV Guide Online are too impatient to wait until Sept. 21 (when Season 5 begins) to find out what happens next. So here we catch up with Graham, who dishes her TV love life, fires back at GG's critics and tells how she spent her summer vacation (with Vin Diesel and Jeff Bridges!).

TV Guide Online: Are Luke and Lorelai now officially a couple?
Lauren Graham:
We're going down that road. It's time to do that, but the story has to stay complicated and not easily resolvable because that's good storytelling. I do know that this year we have David Sutcliffe back [as Christopher, Lorelai's ex], which is a relief. Last year, it was decided that Lorelai couldn't say to Rory, "Your dad can't drive you to Yale because he's on another network." [Sutcliffe co-starred read more

With horror hybrids all the rage, New Line Cinema is plotting a new showdown between Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, studio execs are in talks with Spider-Man helmer Sam Raimi for a sequel that would pit the two horror icons against Ash, the antihero at the center of Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy. If Raimi passes, word is New Line will merely introduce another character or just stage a new face-off between Freddy and Jason. Worst-case scenario: They'll be forced to come up with a completely original idea. Let's hope it doesn't come to that. read more
