Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani
Chynna Phillips got the boot on Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars, and TVGuide.com users are angry.
NBC has ordered six more Harry's Law scripts, Deadline reports.
Say it ain't so, George. T.R. Knight, once upon a time the beatific BFF of all the Grey's Anatomy gals, is this week's guest rapist on Law & Order: SVU? He can't believe it either, and in this week's episode (NBC, 10/9c), which provides new cast members Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino with their best showcase yet, Knight is thoroughly convincing as a family man who never stops protesting his innocence, though the evidence is damning. Told that DNA doesn't lie, he sputters, "Neither do I!" as he literally sweats out this ordeal. But never forget this is SVU, known for the outlandish twist, so when the DA declares, "You have got to be kidding me!" at a critical juncture, you wonder if she's ever watched this show. Bravo to Knight for his bravura work here. He has been missed.
Who's that girl? It's Rachael!
Rachael Harris will guest-star on an upcoming episode of New Girl, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The consummate comedian — whose credits include...
Now you see her; now you don't. New Girl — the first new show to get picked up for a full season — is going to be scarce for much of October.

Might stewardesses follow Playboy Bunnies into cancellation? Pan Am kept losing altitude in Week 3, with just 6.42 million viewers aboard.
That's down from 7.75 million viewers a week ago — and from 10.87 million when the ABC program took off. And among 18-to-49-year-olds, the rating has swooped down from 3.1 to 2.5 to 1.9, Nielsen overnights showed. That trajectory is not good.
Preceding the 1960s drama about stewardesses at 9/8c, Desperate Housewives was down 10 percent, luring 8.46 million viewers and a 2.7 demo rating, which tied a series low (vs. last week's 9.03 million/2.9 demo rating).
Charlie's Angels may not be long for this world. The ABC series was Thursday night's lowest-rated show as ratings plunged 20 percent.

Dancing With The Stars
Overwhelmed by all those two-hour reality shows? You're not alone, and even the networks admit that it's a lot to watch. But they still benefit from those supersized series — so expect to see even more shows go the expansion route.
Two-hour episodes used to be rare, and reserved for special milestones. But what was once a stunt is now the norm, as two-hour series like Dancing with the Stars, The Sing-Off, The Biggest Loser and The X-Factor all take up loads of on-air real estate — sometimes eating up as much as four hours of programming a week (if lengthy results shows and recap specials are included).
Can you believe it's already time to narrow the X Factor field to just 32? Ready or not, here it comes... but not before we see the rest of the "ensemble" performances and one last round of (sometimes embarrassingly bad) solo performances. So, who made it to the semifinals? And which category will each judge be mentoring? Let's find out...
