Ratings: Scandal Shoots to New Highs

Tony Goldwyn, Kerry Washington

What's next for Cam on Bones now that we know about her relationship with Arastoo? — Elizabeth
ADAM:
There will still be a great deal of secrecy around the relationship. "Cam would like this to be a secret because it's slightly unprofessional to be having an affair with one of your underlings," creator Hart Hanson tells us. "She decides the fate of the interns even more than Brennan does. So it's an uncomfortable position for her, but she's managing to keep it compartmentalized." Or at least she is until it impacts her relationship with her daughter. "It has an effect on Michelle and that's the next story we tell," Hanson teases. "What secrets do you keep and for what reason?"

Ratings: Two and a Half Men, Scandal and 30 Rock Hit Highs

Jon Cryer

Sorry, Angus. People are still watching Two and a Half Men.

Days after a video surfaced of Angus T. Jones calling his hit sitcom "filth" and urging fans not to watch it, Men matched its season high Thursday with 13.8 million viewers and a 4.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Men was the only show of CBS' lineup not to dip. The Big Bang Theory (17.1 million, 5.4) was still the night's ...

Rove LA Video: Rashida Jones Reveals Her Scar from Michael Jackson's Chimp

Rove LA

It's safe to say that Rashida Jones did not have a normal childhood.

As the daughter of mega-record producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, the Parks and Recreation star grew up in the posh Bel-Air neighborhood with such other future celebrities as Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Nikki Hilton and... read more

Top Videos of the Week: Best of Liz & Dick, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones' Holiday Song

Rashida Jones and Jimmy Fallon

'Tis the season to get into the holiday spirit — and this week, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones helped viewers do just that, with a holiday medley set to the most popular songs of the year. Meanwhile, some pranksters decided to play a practical joke on Black Friday shoppers by dressing up as Target employees and giving the customers some (misguided) information about the store's deals.

Check out those clips in our Top Videos of the Week, as well as a terrifying Brazilian hidden camera stunt, an Inception­-inspired parody of 7th Heaven's marijuana episode, the best of Liz & Dick, and more.

I want some Parks and Recreation news, STAT! — John
NATALIE:
Is a Pawnee progeny on the way? It would make sense, now that Ben and Leslie are tying the knot. But then why is Ann looking at sperm donors? "She's on this whole self-discovery kick and she is exploring all of her options for her future," executive producer Mike Schur tells us. Who else thinks that Jean-Ralphio will be involved somehow?

Give me some Revolution scoop! It's going to be a long four months! — Sarah

Top Moments: Paula Abdul Gets Trippy on Dancing, Homeland Cranks It Up to 11

MC Skat Kat and Paula Abdul

Our top moments of the week:

12. Least Favorite Follow-Up: Knowing how gravely she deprived us of ear-piecing screams and uncontrollable tears last year, Oprah Winfrey resurrects her "Favorite Things" — except it's not the "Favorite Things" we know and love. As part of a making-of documentary — during which O thinks she's getting high from pigs in a blanket — the episode features only 30 handpicked military spouses, who do their best freak-outs, but it's all a little flat. Let's face it, strength is in numbers. At least we'll always have SNL.

11. Best Origin Story: This is the true story... read more
