Kristin Bauer in True Blood

“The other day I realized as long as I’m in this business, I’m going to be hungry. The camera really does add 10 pounds. I’m trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV. It’s a good incentive to stay slim and is probably adding years to my life.”

-‘s Kristin Bauer (Pam) on the pressures of being thin for her role.

MONDAY (8/9)

Before the first elimination, there’s a day-night group date.” Rejects being rejected by rejects? This is Must See TV!
  • Last Comic Standing (NBC, 9pm):  Season finale. “The winning stand-up comic is revealed.” I look forward to hearing nothing about this person for years to come.
  • Huge (ABC Family, 9pm):  “The campers get anxious when they hear it’s time for their first weigh-in.” The results will determine whom they face in the ring.

MONDAY (8/2)
  • The Bachelorette (ABC, 8pm):  Season finale. “Ali arrives in Bora Bora with two guys (Chris L. and Roberto) and one rose. Her family are also there—-and they do her no favor by liking both bachelors equally.” Her family said it was so hard to choose in this loser-loser situation.
  • The Good Guys (FOX, 9pm):  “A crime family dispatches an assassin to kill a man in the Witness Protection Program after Dan accidentally exposes the man’s identity.” He forgot to adjust his privacy settings to “Friends Only.”

(Warning: NSFW language ahead.)

I never thought I would find myself saying this, but Jessica Simpson does a lot better in this cameo than I ever imagined she would.

Granted, I expected very little. And really - how hard could it possibly be to call Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) an “a**hole”?

True Blood's Bill and Sookie

“Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! [Laughs] But our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-racking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.”

-True Blood‘s on filming love scenes with his Anna Paquin, his real-life fiancee.

MONDAY (7/19)
  • Behind the Music (VH1, 8pm):  “ is profiled through interviews and archival clips. The R&B star discusses his relationship with TLC’s Chilli.” I’d hate to say things are still “chilly” between them, but…
  • Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10pm):  “Jane clashes with her new boss (Donnie Wahlberg).” You have to hang tough with that guy.
  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season finale. “The three beauties left are paired with celebrities to party the night away. They then don’t get to sleep it off, but instead must film a commercial about Las Vegas. One player folds like a house of cards from the sleep deprivation.” Beauty sleep is for suckers who can’t afford plastic surgery.
