After his elimination from The X Factor on December 1, 15-year-old Brooklyn rapper Brian Bradley, aka Astro, stopped by TV Guide Magazine's office to chat about his performances during the competition, advice he'll always remember from the judges, and his plans for the future.

The people have spoken, and they are all saying one thing: TLC's Virgin Diaries is going to be better than your first time.
Last night's double elimination on The X Factor was filled with more than the usual drama.

Our top moments of the week:
12. Better Late Than Never Award: Con man Frank O'Hara (special guest star William Shatner) has spent most of his daughter's life on the run. So when he returns to town on Psych to try to redeem himself with Juliet in time for her 30th birthday, she is obviously skeptical. But Frank does what he does best to win her back: He figures out a way to deliver the bad guys to the front door of the police station. "It was a good plan, dad," Juliet tells him. "It was the least I could do," he responds. Well, there's also the little matter of what he's going to get her for her birthday. Bigger is better, dad.
11. Best Acceptance: Max Braverman, who suffers from Aspergers, has always been a handful, but when he runs...
Fox has unveiled its midseason schedule, and not surprisingly, American Idol will fill the X Factor-sized hole on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and of course Ryan Seacrest will kick off the show's 11th season on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 8/7c.
Always a popular (if sometimes contentious) topic in my Ask Matt forum, Fox's Bones refutes any notion that its heart isn't in the right place in this week's ultimately touching episode (9/8c). Ralph Waite (forever Papa Walton to many of us, though nowadays better known as Jethro's dad on NCIS) makes a welcome return as Booth's grandfather, bearing some unwelcome news that has the very pregnant Bones (Emily Deschanel) wondering how best to reach ...

Dancing With The Stars
Dancing with the Stars determined the winner of its Mirrorball trophy to an audience of 19.45 million, but its 4.1 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, down some 20 percent from a year ago, was its lowest-rated fall finale of all time, according to Nielsen overnights.
Some selective highlights and mini-reviews to get you through the long holiday weekend:
Last week, she was a hapless office assistant on Up All Night. Tonight, in the same time period on a different network, she's an insufferable sibling who makes Thanksgiving a chore, as Saturday Night Live vet Molly Shannon shows off her range, playing Frankie's demanding sister Janet on ABC's The Middle (8/7c). A holiday visit to Frankie's mom and dad (Marsha Mason and Jerry Van Dyke) becomes a recipe for disaster: "Stir in one broken toy, one passive-aggressive sister and let stew overnight ... Take unresolved issues and soak in alcohol." Frankie insists that "Everybody in one house is what makes holidays special," but anyone who's ever spent the festivities sleeping on an air mattress will relate to this first-rate episode.
