A&E's hit show Storage Wars is rigged — at least according to a lawsuit filed by Dave Hester.
In the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, the former host claims that he was fired from the series after complaining to producers about the alleged rigged practices, which he says include producers planting valuable items in the units.

We know Richard Castle will do anything for his partner/muse/lover Detective Beckett. But on Monday's episode of Castle (10/9c, ABC), that might (literally) cost him a lot.
Exclusive: Castle recruits Star Trek alum for Comic-Con episode
The Storage Wars-inspired episode, titled "Secret's Safe with Me," finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) looking into the auction of a storage unit that may be connected to a woman's murder. There's just one problem: Beckett doesn't have enough time to get a warrant, so the only way to protect what may be key evidence is for Castle to join in on the bidding...

When a young programming executive at the History channel first pitched the idea of following a group of Louisiana Cajuns who hunt alligators, "the poor guy got laughed out of the room," says the network's president, Nancy Dubuc. But instead of dropping the idea, he kept bringing it up — and kept getting laughed at.
"But by the fourth meeting, you had to pause," Dubuc says. "If somebody is as passionate as he was about something, what's the harm in letting them run with it?" That germ of an idea turned into Swamp People, an unlikely hit that ...

Just two years ago, MTV was struggling to find its footing. Network staple TRL had ended, onetime hit The Hills was on its way out, and ratings were in a downward spiral. MTV faced its biggest identity crisis yet — then along came Snooki and Co.
Now, led by the crass stars of prime-time phenomenon Jersey Shore, MTV can easily be crowned the biggest winner of the summer of 2011.

"I think in the 30-year history of MTV, this has been...
