Emmy Watch: As TV Splinters, Key Categories Get Squeezed

You wouldn't compare a McDonald's Extra Value Meal to an expensive dinner at a five-star restaurant.

Monday Playlist: Dreary Deception, Return of Birth, Bunheads, Bachelor

The one thing a potential guilty pleasure can't afford to be guilty of is boredom. Just look at the current standard-bearer: ABC's outrageous Scandal, with its whiplash plotting and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue delivered at such hyperspeed you don't have time to dwell on the berserk absurdities, because you're having such a blast. NBC's tepid new mystery-soap hybrid Deception (10/9c) deceives itself if it thinks it belongs in that gonzo company.

What's Happened to Madonna?

Madonna is no stranger to controversy. The singer has been known for her provocative behavior since she shot to fame in the 1980s. So why's everyone making such a fuss over her recent antics?

Out of the Madonna drama loop? Here's a quick catch-up: In the past two weeks, the "Materiel Girl" flashed her nipple during a concert in Istanbul, was spotted riding piggy-back on her boy toy Brahim Zaibat in Florence, Italy, mooned an audience in Rome, and projected a swastika over the face of French politician Marine Le Pen during a show in Tel Aviv. read more

Premise: An antiques-appraisal series that turned out to be a ratings gem in PBS's attic. The simple format has `Roadshow' traveling around the U.S., evaluating family heirlooms and found items. It's based on the long-running (since 1978) BBC show of the same name. `Antiques Roadshow FYI,' an offshoot featuring reports on antiques and collectibles, and updates on items that had been appraised on `Roadshow,' debuted in January 2005, with Lara Spencer as host.
