'Dancing With The Stars' Week One Recap: Fails, Flops And One Amazing Performance

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One Recap: Fails, Flops And One Am
It was a tense first outing for many of the new couples on the first episode of "Dancing with the Stars." The judges were expecting big show-stopping numbers, but instead were disappointed with many of the celebs' routines. While there were a few bright lights, it looks to be a season of criticism where the celebs will be working double time to score with both the judges and fans. The total points a couple can get per dance routine is 40.

New Dance Round

Dance: Jive

Scores: 9, 9, 9, 9 = 36

While Alfnoso Ribeiro may have the edge as a semi-professiona...

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 10: The Great Weed Money Caper

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 10: The Great Weed Money Caper
Listen, it's no secret that the peanut gallery of "Ray Donovan" are not pleasant people. They're in a crime drama- thus, they must be criminals. Or those complacent to the actions of criminals.

So for the most part (other than Shorty- sweet, beautiful Shorty), we're looking at a group of "bad" people.

But "bad" doesn't necessarily mean "mentally unhinged." At least, it didn't until last night's episode of "Ray Donovan," entitled "Volcheck."

The hour had a very distinct structure. "Here is the cast of 'Ray Donovan,'" the episode explained to us. "Now watch as each one of them slowly loses...

Master Of Sex: Best Moments From 'Below The Belt'

Master Of Sex: Best Moments From 'Below The Belt'
“Below the Belt” was not one of Masters of Sex’s best episodes. It highlighted many of the problems with this very uneven season. Every individual episode is brilliantly written, with witty dialogue and subversive plotting. However, the season as a whole is brimming with issues. Many of the plots and characters have gone so off track, including Libby going from bored housewife to demonic racist to her old self again with no explanation and Betty’s domestic problems with the pretzel king.

Yet, as with every episode, there are plenty of amazing moments in “Below the Belt.” Here are a few of ...

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Season 6 Ep 9 Recap: There Will Be Bloodwork

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Season 6 Ep 9 Recap: There W
Cancer, colonoscopies and conspicuous consumption. This was the least entertaining episode of this show I have ever watched and would have stopped watching immediately if it were not my job to recap. It just could not end fast enough.

If you recall from last week, the NJ ladies are preparing for a Florida trip, mainly to get Teresa Guidice out of her element (where plea deals and jail sentences swirl around her), but also for the women to discuss plans for Dina’s charity event.

By the end of the hour, both Teresa G. and Amber have begged out of the vacation.

The lives of Teresa and Joe G...

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 36 Recap: Jury Fury
On the last episode of Big Brother 2014, a BB Rewind completely restarted last week's game. This means that the Head of Household, Veto Competition and Ceremony, and Nominations were completely invalid from the previous week on Big Brother 16. Now the houseguests must do everything again, but better.

Trust Me

Caleb Reynolds wins the "Seed Saw" competition redo. Frankie Grande mentions how he trusts Caleb, but knows not to feel safe about his game life this week. This is a good sentiment because Caleb, Cody Calafiore, and Derrick Levasseur celebrate Caleb's win because they believe it se...

'The Strain' Season 1 Episode 10 Recap: Take my (Undead) Wife, P
This was an unfortunate week (day, really, even though to us at home it feels week-ish) for Ephraim Goodweather.

All the guy wants is to reunite with his ex- he already hacked the head off her new man with the blade of a shovel, so that's the perfect opportunity to make a move. But as "Loved Ones" proves, vampires that specifically go after the ones they are just terrible news for everyone.

Last week's episode teased a great quest for Kelly's life, and this week doesn't disappoint. Except that we get about twenty minutes into this grand quest and Kelly jams a blender blade into Matt's ch...

‘Extant’ Season 1, Episode 12 Recap: 'Before the Blood'
“Extant’s” penultimate episode “Before the Blood” reveals just how vulnerable everyone is to the Offspring’s abilities—including him. Julie uncovers Odin’s true motives for Ethan and John desperately wants Molly whole again.

“Extant’s” 12th episode opens with Katie spinning an outrageous tale to Shawn about escaping the Seraphim. While her shipmates were killing each other, she boarded a pod and floated around space a la Sandra Bullock in “Gravity” for two years. That is until she was rescued by a French shuttle, which docked her back onto the Seraphim.

There are two major red flags with ...

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 35 Recap: The Rewind Activated
Last night on Big Brother 2014, the remaining five houseguests found out what temptation cost them. To the remaining houseguests, host Julie Chen announced that all the games this week needed to be redone. This means Frankie Grande (the current biggest target in the house) is no longer safe. But he habitually escapes eviction when necessary. Frankie's game is also helped by the Bombonators blind loyalty to one another.

Victoria, Master Manipulator?

Victoria Rafaeli starts to breakdown about being evicted this week. Derrick Levasseur uses this opportunity to gain more of her trust.

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Episode 5: Dating Is In Fashion

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Episode 5: Dating Is In Fashion
It’s fashion week on TSP and some are wearing their “singleness” better than others.

Kerry and Tripp are still an item. They had date two in Brooklyn at his art studio where they do some painting. They start off using brushes, then throwing the paint, then rolling around in it on the floor. (It was like a scene out of ‘Pollack’.)

Tripp is good-looking, fun, he enjoys her company and tells her she’s beautiful. He even cares whether her mom approves of him.

As she is an art consultant and he is an artist, plus they are both only children, I think these two could be soul mates who really un...

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 34 Recap: Welcome to the Freak Show
Frankie Grande won his way to the final five on Big Brother 2014. Of course, this means he's the house's main target. But getting out Frankie seems impossible this week because he's the Head of Household. The Big Brother 16 houseguests are completely unaware that by pushing the Rewind button, the entire week is invalid, which makes Frankie eligible for eviction. This week's eviction nominees Victoria Rafaeli and Cody Calafiore may get a second Big Brother 2014 life this week.

General Nonsense

Cody starts developing paranoia about being evicted this week. Caleb Reynolds worsens the sit...
