Don Cheadle Goes for Laughs In the "Bold and Dangerous" House of Lies

Don Cheadle

Don Cheadle realizes he's best known for dramatic roles in such films as Crash, Hotel Rwanda and Traffic. But he finds it odd that so many viewers aren't expecting to see him flex his comedic muscles from him in his new series House of Lies.

"I do it all the time around my friends," he tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's not a... read more

2011's Best Episodes: Flights and Tights and the Final Friday Night Lights Goodbye

Friday Night Lights

From Oprah's surprisingly low-key farewell to the year's most soul-crushing break-up on The Good Wife (Kalicia, no!), the year was packed with fantastic hours of television — pretty much all of which we watched. There were teary goodbyes (Friday Night Lights' Texas forever! Smallville's tights and flights!), tense face-offs (why can't all CIA interrogations take place on the front porch of a cabin, like on Homeland?) and of course we made room for a little Glee (because certain underdogs deserved it). Which made the list. Tune in all week for our top 25.

Here's the fifth batch in our weeklong countdown of 2011's best episodes (Catch up first with Episodes 25-21, Episodes 20-16, Episodes 15-11 and Episodes 10-6. Or browse the full list here.):

5. "Finale," Smallville

Our TV Holiday Wish List — What Do You Wish?

Parks and Recreation

'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give Cougar Town a premiere date. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Steve Carell get awards recognition for his Office role. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Castle and Beckett finally get together. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, stop all the incest on TV!

Ask Matt: Globes Weirdness, Dexter, Person of Interest, Charlie Sheen, and More!

Jim Caviezel, David Costabile

Send your questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I often appreciate the Golden Globes because they show greater range in the nominations than the Emmys, which tend to nominate the same people long after the bloom is off the rose. However, this year's nominees are just weird. Boss and American Horror Story instead of Breaking Bad, Justified or The Good Wife (or Friday Night Lights, if it was eligible)? Callie Thorne? Jeremy Irons? ...

Top Moments: Virgins' Horrifying First Kiss and Mother's Big Twist

Virgin Diaries

Our top moments of the week:

15. Worst Christmas Surprise: Andy is only asking for trouble on The Office when he invites his new girlfriend to the Christmas party at Dunder Mifflin where, in case you forgot, his ex-girlfriend still works. And you know what he gets in his stocking? Trouble. On the advice of an equally broken-hearted Robert California, Erin gets wasted at the party and winds up in a close hug (and maybe more?) with Robert, much to Andy's chagrin. What exactly were you expecting, Nard Dog?

14. Worst Break-Taking Moment: After not sleeping with anyone other than her boyfriend Spencer in more than six years, Jess is understandably worried that she won't be adventurous enough in the sack for her new guy, Paul (the equally adorkable.... read more
