'The Voice' Recap: Pharrell Tries To Go Country And Adam Pitches
Things are getting dicey on The Voice. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams are filling up their squads for season seven, and spots are starting to be harder to come by. Let's see who got the good news, who didn't luck out - and who got the unfortunate montage treatment - in this recap of Tuesday's action.

Starting off the night is 15-year-old Katriz Trinidad from our hometown of San Diego, California. She's performing Etta James' "At Last." What is with these songs that keep reminding us of Will Champlin?! Anyway, Katriz sings like she's twice her age and quickly...

Howard's Pitch On 'The Big Bang Theory' - Season 8 Episode 3 Recap

Howard's Pitch On 'The Big Bang Theory' - Season 8 Episode 3 Rec
Howard's pitch idea looked awesome... for a few seconds.

After an episode of watching some pretty fantastic pitches not quite make it to the end of a gymnasium and the epic pulled shoulder from throwing an imaginary baseball on a Nintendo Wii, Howard's idea to throw the first pitch at the Angels' game using the Mars Rover prototype was awesome.

It was a shame that the rover was moving at roughly 1 meter per minute. Even that, though, was probably better than if he had tried to throw the first pitch properly; 60 feet and 6 inches is an awfully long way for a guy Howard's size.

'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little Weird

'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little
That was... interesting.

The crossover episode between Family Guy and The Simpsons was an interesting idea that could have had a lot of promise - and before we get into it here, the episode was not bad by any means - it was just weird.

The writers at Family guy clearly made a huge effort to please The Simpsons` audience by proving on a number of occasions that The Simpsons has been a far more successful show for a lot longer than Family Guy. Even during the final 'fight scene' between Peter and Homer there was a direct reference to the awards literally being thrown in Peter's face by Hom...

Tamala Jones Previews 'Castle' Season 7: 'This Might Be My Favor
Fan favorite Castle left audiences with a shocking ending last season, as Richard Castle never made it to his third wedding. But now we can finally get answers: tonight's season seven premiere, "Driven," picks up right where last season's finale left off.

Earlier this week, we sat down with Castle star Tamala Jones - who plays medical examiner Dr. Lanie Parish - to quiz her about the premiere episode and what else might be in store for season seven.

What was it like for Tamala to wait for resolution to the cliffhanger? "It was torture!" she laughed. "I say this all the time, I'm a huge Ca...

'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Finale Recap: Ray Magically Fixes All Of Life's Problems

September 29th, 2014 10:13am EDT
'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Finale
Tensions are running high in "The Captain," "Ray Donovan's" second season finale. And for one reason above all: this season has so many concurrent storylines running all at once that it would take a minor miracle (or act of God) to be able to close them all out in a single hour.

Less, really, when you consider "Ray Donovan" usually wraps things up by the 45-minute mark.

But here are the many things "The Captain" has to take care of:

The fallout from the botched weed robbery.

Steve Knight being a creeper.

Cookie menacing the Donovans.

Ed Cochran menacing different Donov...
