'Real World' Star Ryan Knight, 29, Found Dead On Thanksgiving Mo
"Real World New Orleans" star Ryan Knight was found dead at a friend's house early Thanksgiving morning.

The reality star, 29, partied with his pals on Wednesday and appeared to have choked on his own vomit, a friend told TMZ.com.

Those who spent the evening with Knight prior to his death claim the star had taken "some pills."

Girlfriend Jemmye Carroll posted a collage of the two of them on Twitter:

Words will never be enough to justify the connection we shared and the pain I will forever feel. RIP @Knight_MTV pic.twitter.com/EUzeoLEwdr

'The Mindy Project' Recap: Blind Dates, Double Dates, Online Dates

November 26th, 2014 11:02am EST
The Mindy Project
What’s most impressive about tonight’s episode is how tightly plotted it is and how uniform the themes are. Usually, there is a clearly an A plot and a B plot and maybe a few little one liners for the cast. Tonight’s plots are interweaved together, showcasing these cartoonish characters as being more of family than anything else.

Annette is overbearing, over involved and judgmental, and Mindy does a great job of putting up with her. But when she interrupts her erotica bath with Danny, it’s another final straw that makes Mindy decide to take action. That means setting Annette up with a very...

'New Girl' Recap: Bangsgiving

November 26th, 2014 9:15am EST
New Girl
The best sitcom episode concepts are ones that result in stories that seemingly write themselves. A few weeks after “Background Check,” the triumphant high point of Season 4, “New Girl” followed its own lead by keeping the majority of Thanksgiving in the loft (or “Bangsgiving,” as Schmidt insisted). The holidays and being confined to one space are classic situations that lead to people making significant revelations. And Schmidt’s plan to have everyone bring a date for someone else to dinner was a recipe for amplifying that formula many times over.

Schmidt may have wanted the matchmaker...

'The Voice': Top 10 Eliminations Put One Coach Against The Ropes
Tuesday night was another elimination night on The Voice - and the results were incredibly interesting.

As the show narrowed its roster from ten to eight - with just three weeks left in season seven - one coach is now down to their final artist (and it's not the coach you might suspect), while the reveal of America's vote proved to be telling for two singers.

But the eliminations were also blunted by the reminder that the pair of performers let go will remain eligible for the "wild card" finalist spot previously revealed last week.

It was three-time champion Blake Shelton who got the wor...
