MONDAY (1/10)

  • Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo, 8 P.M.): "James Lipton conducts an interview with actor and funnyman , star of The Truman Show (1998), Man on the Moon (1999) and the Ace Ventura films." This would be an example of a "yes man" interviewing the Yes Man.
  • Lie to Me (FOX, 8 P.M.): "When Cal (Tim Roth) is asked to determine if a mental hospital patient is being held against his will he begins to question his own sanity." When you go from Reservoir Dogs to a television series, it's natural to question yourself occasionally.
  • Castle (ABC, 10 P.M.): "Castle and Beckett interview a top magician (Gilles Marini) after the owner of a magic store drowns in Houdini's legendary water torture tank." Now that's a man who can make magic happen.

VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel and the Handsome Men’s Club

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Late Night, Specials, ABC, Video,

Whether you’re watching it for the first time, or for the fifth time—this is some funny s**t.

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards special, the host gave us an inside look at the HMC, a.k.a. the Handsome Men’s Club.

Several items were on the agenda during the club’s meeting yesterday. Are Robert Pattinson and Taylor worthy of induction—or are they merely cute? (The Office‘s John Krasinksi already fills the club’s “cute” quota.) Should be allowed to change his name to “Handsome” Hawke? (Answer: Yes.) Is Jimmy Kimmel good-looking enough to even be in the club—let alone be it’s president?

Find out what happens - and who betrays Kimmel - in the video above.

Gilles Marini Talks About New Brothers & Sisters Role

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC,

Gilles MariniI’m already looking forward to my Sunday nights this fall.

Gilles Marini recently confirmed to Us Magazine that he has sealed a deal to appear on Brothers & Sisters next season. The gig would keep the Dancing with the Stars contestant on ABC for an undisclosed number of weeks. “I got a call that producers wanted to write a part for me. I’m thrilled it worked out and that I get to prove myself. The writers and I had a long conversation, and they wanted to know who I am, inside and out,” Gilles said. (I’m sure many other women would like to know him inside and out as well….)

In announcing the news, the 33-year-old also revealed a possible spoiler.  “I haven’t met Rachel [Griffiths] yet, but I know it’s going to be a great [partnership].” So does this mean that Sarah will get to make out with another ballroom hunk in a storage room?? (She had a brief fling with ‘s character this past season.)

At this time it’s unclear whether the upcoming sequel is also in Marini’s future. “Hopefully I get a phone call real soon!” Gilles stated.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC,

Gilles MariniYou have to hand it to the team behind —they know a hot man when they see one.

Earlier this year, the producers nabbed former Dancing with the Stars contestant for a brief (and steamy) storyline with actress Rachel Griffiths. Now they are looking to recruit another ballroom star for the upcoming season.

DWTS’ Latest Injured Stars: Steve Wozniak and Steve-O

Steve-OSteve Wozniak

The Dancing with the Stars benchwarmers might want to start warming up.

Less than a week after replacing two of the program’s female celebrities, the producers are now facing several injuries on the male side.

Although he surprised audiences with a Jackass-less waltz last Monday, Steve-O is struggling to make it to Week 2. “A physical therapist has told me that nerves are being pinched in my back, and it is in spasms because of inflammation related to torn muscles. I’m doing everything I can to let it heal—icing it, taking Advil, drinking water, visiting a chiropractor and continuing to be worked on by the physical therapist. I’m still rehearsing every day, but walking through my salsa routine rather than practicing the physical stunts and tricks that are incorporated into it. It is going to be a risky routine that I hope to pull off,” the 34-year-old said in a statement.

Cheryl Burke and Gilles MariniJulianne Hough and Chuck Wicks

Since we’re now just over a week away from the start of , here’s a little backstage scoop to get you warmed up:

Julianne Hough: Three months ago the two-time champion announced she would be taking a hiatus to pursue her music career. So what made her change her mind? A boy.

Hough said ABC used her real-life boyfriend (singer Chuck Wicks) to rope her back in. “It was a last minute deal,” she wrote in her blog. “I was set on taking this season off and then last minute the show asked me to do it because they had asked Chuck to do it and they thought it would be cool if we danced together.”

“At first I still said no because I wanted to focus on my music,” Julianne explained, “BUT then I thought about it for a day and figured this out. I can still write, go on tour and work on Julianne Hough the country singer because Chuck will be my partner and that will be a huge luxury.”
