‘Candidly Nicole’ Episode 6 Gives Throwback Tribute to ‘Beverly Hills 90210’

August 28th, 2014 8:29pm EDT
Candidly Nicole
It was the greatest show of all time, according to Nicole Richie, who took advantage of her throwback Thursday airtime to school lil sis Sophia on the show that changed the world. Considering her sissy prob wasn’t even born when the teen drama invaded our small screens in the early ‘90s, her ignorance of the illicit escapades of Brenda, Kelly and Dylan aren’t too surprising. Like any big sis, Nicole’s got her covered by dragging her down memory lane--where cell phones were nonexistent (unless you were Zach Morris) and looking someone in the eye wasn’t Emily Valentine creepy—via a “9-0-Tour-...

August 28th, 2014 4:20pm EDT
SYTYCD
Last night's So You Think You Can Dance 2014 performance finale proved why Valerie Rockey, Zack Everhart Jr., Jessica Richens, and Ricky Ubeda all deserve a shot at the title of America's favorite dancer. The night was full of jazz, a touch of hip hop, and an abundance of contemporary. Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, and Guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson gave less criticims and more praises for each dancers' journey to the finals of So You Think You Can Dance season 11.

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 28 Recap: Folding Under the Pressure

'Big Brother' 2014 Episode 28 Recap: Folding Under the Pressure
Many Big Brother 2014 fans have been unhappy with the favorable ways CBS has edited Youtube Star Frankie Grande. On last night's episode, he was edited in villainous way. One of America's favorite players, Groundskeep Donny Thompson, suggested that Team America's mission for the week be to save him. The third member of Team America, Derrick Levasseur, was on the fence about the idea, but Frankie was completely against it. This could be setting him up to become the new antagonist of Big Brother 16.

Donny enters into the Diary Room and gets the newest mission for Team Ame...

'Motive' Season Finale Recap And Review: 'For You I Die' - Angie's Past Is Revealed

'Motive' Season Finale Recap And Review: 'For You I Die' - Angie
In the season finale of Motive, we finally get answers about the League of Nations trial slash Angie's past subplot that's been running through the whole cycle. Unfortunately, somebody really cool has to die for that to happen. We're just going to guess there's more than 30 seconds of Warren Christie in this episode.

The story begins not in the present day, with a flashback to the fateful call Angie and Cross responded to ten years ago. It's a domestic disturbance with Alfonso Dyer holding his wife at gunpoint. There's no right way out of this situation, and it ends with both Alfonso and h...

6 Bombshell Discoveries From ‘Extant’s’ Double Episodes’
Double the episodes, double the trouble for Molly, which was made all the more apparent by the major bombshells dropped on last week’s bundle episodes 7 and 8 (“More in Heaven and Earth” and “Incursion”)and the explosive discoveries just keep coming if you peeped the promo for tonight’s “Extant event.” But let’s focus on what we already know: Molly’s major alien baby drama, Ethan’s rapid transition to being a real boy and Julie’s beau’s hidden agenda. Where should we start?

1.Ethan’s Better Than You- John’s constant attempts at turning Ethan into a human boy have been, for the most part, f...

‘The Singles Project’ S1 Episode 3: Failing Chemistry 101

‘The Singles Project’ S1 Episode 3: Failing Chemistry 101
Man stealing, stalking and set ups. Oh, yes.

As I continue to watch this show, I’m beginning to vacillate between physical pain and boredom. The theme of this week’s episode was No Chemistry – some real and some imagined.

There were dates galore though: Lee and a woman named Saida, Brian and Nichole, Tabasum and Vedent, Kerry and Chris, Ericka and Francesco, Joey and a room full of guys at the Hell’s Kitchen haunt, Boxers.

Lee has yet to take my advice and date Ericka. I think these two know that once they start seeing each other, it will be the end of dating other people. For all they s...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Recap: Paradise Says A Fond Farewell To, Uh... What's-Her-Nuts

August 27th, 2014 8:25am EDT
Bachelor in Paradise
Yesterday was tough. Night sweats. Day sweats Full-body, uncontrollable itching. And all because we had to wait another day to find out if Graham actually accepted AshLee's rose (note: if you actually suffered symptoms because you had to wait a day for more "Bachelor in Paradise," please call an ambulance. And then a good psychotherapist).

But at long last, the wait is over. AshLee said those fateful words: "Graham, will you accept this rose?"

And Graham took a minute to think it over, then fled the stage at full speed. And when we pick up tonight, Graham's still fleeing. And sweating. Re...

'Bachelor in Paradise' Recap: Cody/Macklemore is a Sweetheart, AshLee is a Dangerous Nutcase

August 26th, 2014 8:40am EDT
Bachelor in Paradise
Is anyone drawing up a flowchart for "Bachelor in Paradise?" Because this is a show that needs ample flowcharting. It's difficult enough that our kooky tropical dating show is a hefty two hours long, but it's near impossible to keep track of the many love triangles, love quadrangles, and love parallelograms that have cropped up among our many Paradisers.

Example: Michelle likes Robert, but Robert likes Sarah- oh, and Graham is, like, totally into Michelle, even if Graham has been going steady with AshLee this WHOLE TIME, and then Cody shows up and puts the moves on Michelle but now Kalon ...

'Under the Dome' Season 2, Episode 9 Recap: Spirals, Spirals Everywhere

August 26th, 2014 8:12am EDT
Under the Dome
Put aside that Emmy chatter for a moment. It's time for a series that couldn't win an Emmy if there was an entirely separate ceremony just for shows about domes.

It's "Under the Dome" time, people. And in true "Under the Dome" form, this week's episode- "The Red Door"- was both charmingly stupid and stupidly fun.

Let us begin.

"The Red Door" is an exciting hour, but one of the side effects of introducing an entirely new setting (the great Domeless; the outside world) is that we've got all kinds of players scattered across a vastly increased landscape. Luckily, the episode ties everyone ...

'RHONJ' Season 6 Episode 7: You Gotti Have Heart

'RHONJ' Season 6 Episode 7: You Gotti Have Heart
So the drama of the first responder party has been put to rest, and everyone is supposedly friendly again. But tranquility is the kiss of death on reality TV, meaning I couldn’t wait to to see what new commotion – real or manufactured -- awaited the Jersey gals.

With other franchises, to shake things up the housewives are often sent on a trip where cabin fever or too many cocktails get the ladies in each other’s faces. Something tells me that that ploy isn’t necessary with this group, as they don’t need a distant land or booze to get them screaming at one another. So, instead of taking th...
