Allison Janney, Anna Faris
All season long, I've been likening CBS's freshman sleeper Mom to gritty sitcom foremothers like Roseanne and Grace Under Fire (shows on which executive producer Chuck Lorre famously spent time before his current CBS heyday). That comparison rings especially true in the first-season finale (Monday, 9:30/8:30c), as third-generation mom-too-soon Violet (Sadie Calvano) gives birth while her own imperfect mother, Christy (Anna Faris), and caustic grandma Bonnie (Allison Janney) look on with emotional empathy.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has gotten hitched, Us Weekly reports.
Evans, 20, married her boyfriend of three months, Courtland Rogers, in a North Carolina courthouse. Her sister, Ashley Evans Wilson, told Radar Online, "Our whole family is shocked because they have not been dating very long. At this point, after all that she has been through, she should know better than this."
Teen Mom' star Farrah Abraham will be staying on your TV screen.
Abraham told Us Weekly that she's in the midst of signing onto her own reality show. "I'm just closing it," Abraham said. "It's gonna be just about me and my life."
My Teen is Pregnant and So Am I
We've seen 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, but now TLC is taking the pregnancy reality genre to a new level: pregnant mother-daughter combos!
On the new special My Teen Is Pregnant and So Am I, viewers will follow two sets of mothers and daughters as they each journey through nine months of pregnancy.
Teen Mom's original cast members are moving on.
Beavis and Butt-Head
Ready for more Beavis and Butt-Head? MTV hopes so, as the cable network is re-launching the animated series from Mike Judge nearly two decades after its original debut. But will the show, which thrived in the '90s — when the M in MTV still stood for music — work today? Judge and MTV President Van Toffler, a self-described B and B fanatic, think so. Here's how they plan to bring the chuckling chuckleheads into the 21st century...
Beavis and Butt-Head
Ready for more Beavis and Butt-Head? Hope so, because MTV is bringing it back this fall. Series creator Mike Judge (the big brain also behind King of the Hill and the movie Office Space) and MTV President Van Toffler, a self-described B and B fanatic, spoke to reporters Friday at the fall TV previews about why it's coming back and how it'll be different.
Fans of the original series, fear not: Beavis and Butt-Head are the same emotionally stunted man-children you remember from their 1993-1997 run on MTV. In fact, it'll mostly seem like no time has passed at all. "I didn't want to do a big, conscious forcing of modern stuff on them, only when it makes sense," Judge says. Millennial nods will include one episode in which the pair sees Twilight and decides they want to "get chicks" by becoming supernatural creatures themselves. So they...
Catelynn and Tyler
From her first appearance on MTV's 16 & Pregnant, Catelynn Lowell's story has been a bit different from the rest of the cast. Not only was she was the sole teen to give her baby up for adoption, she's also the only one who has remained with her boyfriend of the time, Tyler. While Catelynn calls Tyler her soulmate, she says not to expect wedding bells any time soon. "We're too young!" she says. TVGuide.com caught up with the 19-year-old about her relationship with Tyler, how she's handling the decision to give up Carly and which fellow Teen Mom cast member she's closest with.
Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham has received plenty of criticism about her role on the MTV reality series, but she says she still views herself as a role model.
"I believe I've earned that title," Farrah tells TVGuide.com. "I take time and give advice to other teen moms and teenagers ... and it helps their lives."
The Iowa native was first spotlighted on 16 and Pregnant before becoming one of four cast members on the spin-off. The only single girl of the group, Farrah eventually revealed that her daughter Sophia's father died months prior to her being born. When Season 3 premieres Tuesday (10/9c), cameras will once again follow Farrah, who tells us all about her breast augmentation and why she's "not a whore."
Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner
Think Twilight influences pop culture? Check out the 2010 list of the most popular baby names.
The Social Security Administration revealed on the Today show Isabella was the top name for girls last year, while Jacob was the most popular name among boys. Isabella, called Bella for short, is the lead character in the Twilight book series and is portrayed by Kristen Stewart on-screen. While Bella's vampire boyfriend Edward, played by Robert Pattinson, didn't make the cut, Bella's best friend-werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) did. The series' fans are either in the Team Edward or Team Jacob camp, but clearly Team Jacob won in the baby-naming arena.
