You don't have to wait until the next incarnation of The Bachelor to see Chris Harrison on your TV again. The host/matchmaker has paired with Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba to anchor TV Guide Network's red carpet coverage, starting with September's Emmy Awards. "What most people don't know is that this goes back to my true passion — live TV," Harrison, who also hosts Hollywood 411, tells TVGuide.com. "I started there as a local sportscaster in Oklahoma City and that will always be my love. It's kind of what I live for." But how does red-carpet coverage compare to his Bachelor/ette duties? Find out, and see what Harrison has to say about the Bachelorette finale and why a Friend should be the next Bachelor.
Kiptyn and Reid, The Bachelorette
Becoming the runners-up on The Bachelorette made Kiptyn Locke and Reid Rosenthal the most obvious front-runners to be the next Bachelor - but which would you prefer?
Neither one is set on the idea, but neither is ruling it out, either.
"It's something I'd think about," Kiptyn told reporters, while Reid was a little bit more hesitant: "I have been thinking about it and I'm not sure yet."
Given The Bachelorette's terrible track record for bringing couples together long-term, why would Jillian Harris and her new beau, Ed Swiderski, rush to move in together?
"Why not? We are madly in love, we love being together, our relationship is easiest when we're together," Harris told TVGuide.com. "It's just the most simple answer: We're so excited to be together."
The two announced during The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose that Harris will move into Swiderski's Chicago apartment in September. They plan to wed within a year.
The couple has overcome some hurdles, including Swiderski's initial inability to, uh, take things to a physical level in the Fantasy Suite. Swiderski said he was...
This season's After the Final Rose special features Jillian reuniting with the guys she rejected, Reid getting a giggly offer, and Ed explaining his green shorts.
The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris
In the season finale of The Bachelorette, Jillian chooses her man after some well-timed eruptions and a not-that-surprising surprise return.
The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris
Did The Bachelorette's Jillian Harris take the advice of TVGuide.com users in Monday night's season finale?

TVGuide.com readers are hoping for what would be the most dramatic Bachelorette outcome ever: Jillian Harris choosing Reid Rosenthal, a bachelor she's already rejected.
Forty-one percent of more than 2,800 voters in an online poll want Rosenthal, the most recently jilted bachelor, to win Jillian's heart. The previews for the finale show him returning. But would she take him back over her two final two suitors?
Ed Swiderski, the businessman from Chicago who exited early on in The Bachelorette to keep his job, returned to fight for Jillian, and has garnered more than...
On Monday night's finale of The Bachelorette (8/7 CT) cute and kooky Canadian Jillian Harris must choose between her final suitors, Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke (or perhaps the recently rejected Reid Rosenthal, who appears in finale promos). Given the series' terrible track record, who do you think Jillian should end up with? (Vote in poll below.)
But before Jillian hands out that final rose, let's look back — at both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — to see where all the contestants are now...

What's in store for Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson during the new season of SVU? — Crystal
MICKEY: Executive producer Neal Baer tells me the unofficial theme of Season 11 is "Benson and Stabler against the world." First all up in their grill is Wentworth Miller, who guest-stars as a cop with whom Benson will both clash... and make sexy eye contact! Next, Emmy winner Christine Lahti's ADA Sonya Paxton will be kickin' a-- and takin' names, which won't sit well for Stabler initially, and Benson ultimately.
I'm going crazy because there hasn't been any news on Criminal Minds. Please, tell me something about Hotch's future! — Francesca
MATT: You and many other Mega Buzz readers seem rather concerned about the gun that went off during Hotch's unexpected season-finale face-off with the serial killer known as the Reaper. Well, you should know that ...
In this week's sort-of episode of The Bachelorette, the men tell all, discuss the "man code" and Wes, and pretend it isn't totally weird that Reid isn't there.
