Celebrity Watchlist: Joe Bastianich Sings the Praises of Glee, Idol and Charlie Sheen!

Joe Bastianach knows the culinary world. Not only is he a judge on Fox's MasterChef — which returns for a second season on Monday at 8/7c — he operates three wineries in Italy and 18 restaurants across the country with business partner-celebrity chef Mario Batali. But Bastianich isn't only about food. If necessary, he claims he could make a living by singing for his supper.

The restauranteur can carry a tune and is drawn to shows that feature singing like Glee. "Those kids are fantastic," he tells TVGuide.com. "I love it because I sing, so I sing along with them." As for fellow Fox reality show American Idol, he boasts, "I'd go on there and win if I wasn't so damn old."

Ask Matt: Go, Peggy! Plus White Collar, Big Bang, NCIS, and More!

Question: I'm starting to think Elisabeth Moss is going to have a major problem to deal with next summer: deciding which Mad Men episode to submit for Emmy consideration! Peggy has always been one of Mad Men's most complex and intriguing characters, but this season it just feels like Moss and the writers providing her material have been stepping it up more and more in each episode. I can't decide which Peggy moment has been my favorite so far this season: her dabblings in '60s counterculture, her moving reaction to the news of Trudy Campbell's pregnancy, her clever takedown of the horrid new art director, or any of her scenes with Don in the heartbreaking "The Suitcase" episode. What really is blowing my mind is that we're only about halfway through this season of Mad Men. If it's this good already, I can't even imagine how great the climactic episodes are going to be! I just wanted to check in and see if you have been enjoying Peggy lately as much as I have been... read more

Premise: An inexplicably enduring sitcom about seven stranded castaways on an uncharted desert isle. Despite a critical bashing, the show became a pop-culture phenomenon after it was released in syndication; and spun off three TV movies (including the immortal `Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island') and two Saturday-morning cartoons, one set in outer space (`Gilligan's Planet'). Gilligan's first name was never mentioned in the nearly 100 episodes.
