Our top moments of the week:
15. Most Cringe-Worthy: During his The Tonight Show with Jay Leno visit, the host asks Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino about adapting his well-documented pick-up skills for Italian ladies on Jersey Shore's Season 4 abroad. To really get into the moment, Sitch calls upon a confused and slightly ...
The three-hour launch of Bachelor Pad's second season won Monday night in viewership (6.87 million) but finished second among the industry-prized 18-to-49-year-old demo, scoring a 2.2 rating, according to Nielsen overnight figures.
Compared to last year, the program stayed even in the demo and grew in total viewers by 8 percent from 6.37 million. And it was No. 1 among all the female demos — all in all, a respectable start. ...
Viewers tuning into the Bachelor Pad premiere might've been expecting a Jake and Vienna showdown, but instead the one-time Bachelor gave his ex-fiance the immunity rose. Host Chris Harrison calls the decision the stupidest thing Jake could've ever done. Harrison shares his insight into the move that shook the house up and why Vienna's boyfriend Kasey will prove to be the strongest player this season. Plus: Why does Harrison think Justin "Rated R" would've done well in the game had he not been cut Week 1?
Even in the heat of August, there's still some trash that just smells like roses.
Oh come on, you know you love it. Ever since ABC announced that it was bringing back last summer's Bachelor Pad, fans of the dating-and-mating series have been salivating over the drama being drummed up for round 2. After all, just the reunion of notorious exes (and famewhores) Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi was enough of a reason to toss aside your rational thought and take a peek. Would she cry? Yes. Would he try to excuse his hateful behavior during their televised break-up? Over and over. Would the rest of the house be able to compare? You betcha...
Jake Pavelka and Kasey Kahl
Bachelor Pad's Kasey Kahl entered the competition with one goal in mind: Beat Jake Pavelka.
"He was the only guy that I really cared about beating," Kahl told TVGuide.com. "I've got the girl, I've got the love and now I'm going for the money and to oust Jake."

Chris Harrison: Bachelor Pad premiere will be three hours
After an explosive breakup, Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka are reuniting for the reality show, and Girardi is joined by her current boyfriend, The Bachelorette's Kasey Kahl. His Season 6 castmate Craig Robinson tells TVGuide.com in the video below that that there's definitely some animosity there — which is the understatement of the year if you've seen the preview.
While J.P. may seem like the front-runner on The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison says that bumps are ahead for him and Ashley. In this week's chat with Harrison, he dissects each of the dates, talks about Ames' upcoming stint on Bachelor Pad, and hints that next week one of the guys may not choose to forgo their individual room to stay with Ashley in the fantasy suite.
Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi
The Bachelor Pad premiere is going to be a whopping three hours, host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com.
"I would never say this about any TV show because I honestly don't think any TV show deserves to be three hours, but I don't even know if three hours is enough for Bachelor Pad," Harrison says. "ABC looked at the footage and can't believe it ... That just goes to show you how good and mind-blowing it's going to be."
