This week's episode features the return of not one but two bachelors, a shocking allegation, and my collapse into caveman talk when my fiancée and fellow recapper, exhausted by all the drama, falls asleep.
Dance Your Ass Off
The Secret Life of the American Teenager
8 pm/ET ABC Family
In last week's season premiere, John Schneider suffered the same fate portraying Grace Bowman's father as he did playing Clark Kent's father on Smallville: His character was killed off the show. Tonight his death is mourned by everyone who knew him, especially Grace, who was in a fight with her dad before he got into a plane accident. She's also plagued with guilt because she believes her actions (forsaking her vow of chastity until marriage by sleeping with Jack) are to blame for his death.

In this week's episode, the pressure rises as the guys try to stay in the competition until next week, when Jillian will visit the remaining bachelors' hometowns.
Hello, and welcome back to our recap. With me as always is my beautiful and brilliant fiancée, who this week predicted not only what bachelors would get roses, but did so in the correct order. She also saw this Jon and Kate thing back in 2005.
The episode begins with Jillian taking the guys on a train trip across Canada. They pass snowcapped mountains, lush trees, and reflecting lakes. Wes, the country singer from Austin, Texas, asks if one of the bodies of water is a lake or an ocean. Yeah, dude. It's the Canadian Ocean. We know Austin is landlocked, but come on. It has a very lovely lake.
In this episode of The Bachelorette, whiskey is consumed and one guy goes home voluntarily. Plus: a very intriguing look at future events.
In a word, The Bachelorette's Jillian Harris says that having a bevy of would-be beaus vie for her affections — versus when she competed with a gaggle of gals over Bachelor Jason Mesnick — has been "great."
"It's definitely been a roller coaster," she says in Part 2 of her TVGuide.com video Q&A. "It's way harder being the one calling the shots."
In the clip below, Jillian also opens up about the big question mark that is country crooner Wes, and how she went into this show with a kissing "quota" that has since gone kablooey.
"It's so abnormal to be kissing ...

As R.E.M. sang, "It's the end of the world as we know it." Actually, it's just the end of Season 2 for the college drama, though Kappa Tau is hosting an "End of the World" party. The doomsday festivities coincide with some inner turmoil Casey is experiencing as she feels torn between her feelings for both Max and Cappie. This leaves Casey too busy to help Ashleigh, who's been accused of sabotaging a homecoming float. Meanwhile, Dale and Calvin attempt to help each other abide by a mutual purity pledge they take.

In this week's episode, the guys film a Western, crazy David confronts calculating Juan, and Wes somehow manages to yet again work in the song he wrote for Jillian.
Jillian Harris, The Bachelorette
This Monday night on ABC's The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris says she found herself in a situation she was "really uncomfortable with" as "the tables were turned" and she was forced to do something which she, when trying to woo Bachelor Jason Mesnick, did not care for at all.
Also in Part 1 of her TVGuide.com video Q&A, Jillian shares her take on talk that would-be beau Wes is in this purely to promote his music career. She also reveals whether Bryan was right last week in claiming that he got cut after suffering "shrinkage" during ...
Mel Gibson, Jon and Kate Plus Eight
It's been a big week for family feuds. Rescue Me's Tommy had to deal with his demons, Breaking Bad's Walt had a crisis on the homefront, and even the Republican Party had to decide... Okay, look. We're just bringing up family because we want to talk Jon & Kate. The whole situation freaks us out. Just like a certain number seems to freak parents out. You'll see what we mean at the end of our Top Moments, crazy eights edition.
On this week's episode of The Bachelorette, one guy gets a little demanding of Jillian's time, a rivalry emerges, the Harlem Globetrotters and Martina McBride swing by for some reason, and four guys go home. Hi, and welcome back to our recap. With me as always is my lovely fiancée, who will contribute her thoughtful, incisive, and occasionally intemperate remarks.
