VERY CLOSE FRIENDS

At last! In Thursday night's sublime Friends season finale, Joey (Matt LeBlanc) kissed longtime crush Rachel ( Jennifer Aniston)! Plus, Ross (David Schwimmer) hooked up with fellow paleontologist Charlie (Aisha Tyler), and, rather than accept a marriage proposal from David (Hank Azaria), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) reunited with ex-boyfriend Mike (Paul Rudd). But, although love was in the air, our favorite part was still watching ultracompetitive Monica (the underrated, if not u read more

Tina Fabulous Jeers Bachelor's Tears

After Andrew's shocking decision to eject Tina Fabulous from his Bachelor pad last week, we figure this guy must be sipping a little too much of his Firestone wine. After all, TV Guide Online pegged the 22-year-old Wisconsin-bred bombshell as a shoo-in for bridal bliss. Oh well, his loss! Here, Tina — who's now a TV correspondent in Milwaukee — tells why she won't shed any tears over the millionaire who got away.


TV Guide Online: How did the name Tina Fabulous come about?
Tina:

Tina:
I think we weren't seeing eye-to-eye on having a family. I'm still young, and I want my career to come first.

CBS Eyes Big Changes this Fall


For a network that preaches stability, CBS is giving its schedule an eye-popping shake-up, adding seven new shows and moving established hits The King of Queens and JAG to new nights. Not surprisingly, CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves downplays the risk of audience confusion the moves may cause. "Viewers have a hard time keeping up no matter what you do — there's already a lot of confusion," he says. "But when some of the shows you move are already appointment viewing, their fans will move with them."

Still, the network will have to maneuver a tough road next fall, especially given that five of its new shows are dramas, two of which will face off against some of the most popular shows on primetime. Look for CBS to have more success with its two new comedies, Two and a Half Men and The Stones, both of which will follow read more
