Madison and her fangs might be gone, but Michelle, who keeps threatening to use her fists on any of the 13 other remaining bachelorettes who get in her way, is still very much alive. So keep your dukes up, ladies. But now Michelle has a problem she can't blame on her competitors: She must rappel down the side of a skyscraper, and she's afraid of heights. And Chantal, who's afraid of water, gets to go skin diving. Dates? Or torture? (And don't forget Emily and planes last week.) The group date is an appearance on Loveline with Mike & Dr. Drew, and when the dust settles 11 gals remain. — Paul Droesch

In the annals of Bachelor history, no villain has been more hissable than Brad Womack (Booooooooooo!!!), the Austin saloonkeeper who spurned both Jenni and DeAnna in 2007. Brad says that has paid dearly for his sins ("I hit rock bottom"), and that therapy has made him more kissable. He hopes. We'll see, beginning tonight, when he meets the 30 gals he'll be sifting through over the next two months. A dentist, an undertaker and a "manscaper" are among them. But first there's an encounter with Jenni and DeAnna. Then the first gal out of the limousine slaps him. Hard. — Paul Droesch

Dancing with the Stars
It's time once again for the celebrities to help design the costumes! From what we saw last week, Kelly may be putting Louis in a loud floral print, and Michael's designs may have Anna cursing him in Russian. However, let's hope Michael didn't spend too much time working on wardrobe at the expense of practicing, because he only narrowly escaped elimination last week by winning a dance-off against Louie Vito. Two stars exited in a double elimination last week, and tomorrow night two more will go.

In classic page-turner fashion, The Memory Keeper's Daughter opens on a dark and snowy night, with a fateful childbirth, the implications of which resonate over the next 20 years of secrets and lies, joys and sorrows.
Lifetime chose well in adapting Kim Edwards' best-seller, which tells the best kind of what-would-you-do yarn. If the TV-movie is more labored and less affecting than the emotionally taut novel, it's ultimately satisfying and is just the sort of high-end tearjerker Lifetime should continue making.
The story's irresistible hook comes early, as Dr. David Henry (Dermot Mulroney) is forced by weather and fate to deliver his own wife's baby, a "perfect" son. But there's a surprise twin: a girl with Down syndrome — this being 1964, he calls her a "mongoloid" — and he's so appalled he orders his adoring nurse, Caroline (Emily Watson), to whisk her to an asylum, telling wife Norah (Gretchen Mol) that Baby Phoebe died.

Can the professional marriage between Vince and Ari be saved? This burning question scorches its way with white-hot comic intensity through the second half of Entourage's ridiculously entertaining third season (Sundays, 10 pm/ET, HBO).
When last we saw our Hollywood lads, back in August, movie star Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier) had just broken up with — as in, fired — his volatile agent, Ari Gold (Emmy winner Jeremy Piven). The fallout is like something from a turbocharged romantic comedy, with money and movie deals acting as aphrodisiacs in a ruthless mating dance.
"I can't just be friends," insists a desperate Ari, engaged in a literal tug-of-war for Vince's loyalty and affections with his foxy new agent, Amanda (the sizzling Carla Gugino), who has certain seductive assets Ari can't quite match. There's no business as low as showbiz, and Entourage revels in it.
