The Goodwin Games premiered Monday night on FOX.  It is the brain child of How I Met Your Mother co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and long time episodes such as “Okay Awesome,” “Game Night,” and “Mary the Paralegal,” as well as more recently “The Bro-Mitzvah,” the tale of Barney’s bachelor party. 

The show is the story of the three Goodwin siblings, who are suddenly pit against each other in a battle for their eccentric father’s inheritance.  HIMYM fans will immediately recognize Becki Newton as Chloe Goodwin from her role as Quinn, the stripper Barney almost married.  Chloe is an...

TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

May 25th, 2012 12:07pm EDT
Revenge Cast
Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-c...

Becki Newton
Actress Becki Newton is pregnant with her first child. The former Ugly Betty star has confirmed she is expecting a baby with her husband Chris Diamantopoulos, whom she wed in May 2005.

However, the happy news has caused a headache for executives at NBC - they are having to push back the premiere of her new TV series Love Bites.

Writers are also having to take steps to adjust Newton's character in the show, according to USA Today.

A spokesperson for NBC network explains, "She plays a virgin (in the pilot episode), so we have to make adjustments to that."

Weekly Fashion Wrap Up for the week of September 14
There were so many losers this week we didn't have room for all of them, and so our winner list got cut a bit short. Was it the MTV Awards or Fashion Week in NYC that brought out the worst in people (or their stylists)? You decide!

THE LOSERS

Holly Montag: It's not even a question. Holly Montag is definitely our worst dressed of the week.

Emmy Voters, Please Recognize These Shows & Stars!

Big Love
The 2009 Emmy nominees will be announced Thursday morning and despite recent changes to the voting system, Emmy voters just can't seem to stray away from the same old outcome. Sure, 30 Rock gets showered with love, but how many more times does Mariska Hargitay need to make the cut?

Here are some names we'd like to see on the roster this year (in alphabetical order):

Big Love (HBO) - Ok Emmy voters, it's been three seasons. It's time to get over your aversion to the icky polygamy premise and embrace the TV bliss that is "Big Love." After a two year break (damn writers' strike!) the sh...

'Ugly Betty' Season Three Finale

May 22nd, 2009 10:59am EDT
Ugly Betty
Well, here it is, people! It's the two-hour "Ugly Betty" Season Three finale. That means this recap is a two-for-one and that we've got a lot of ground to cover. Let's waste no time…

Now that former playboy Daniel Meade is a devoted husband, the media is going gaga for him (with the tabloids dubbing him "Prince Charming"). Even as he and Molly leave the hospital following her collapse, the paparazzi are waiting and ready to snap shots of the happy couple.

Having all this attention on Daniel annoys Wilhelmina to no end. She's still reeling over Claire's abrupt ascent to Vice-...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: 'In the Stars'

Ugly Betty
Betty and Marc are finally looking to take their careers to the next level. Betty gets an excellent performance review from Daniel, and Marc gets an "adequate" review from Wilhelmina (which, by Willy standards, is good), but the positive reinforcement doesn't matter in either case. When Cal Hartley saved Meade Publications from financial ruin, part of the deal was that Meade would institute a hiring freeze. Consequently, Betty and Marc can't get promoted to editors at Mode, and they're majorly bummed.

As the Mode staff gathers to review spreads for the upcoming wedding issue, Wilhel...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: 'The Born Identity'

May 8th, 2009 12:55pm EDT
Ugly Betty
On last week's "Ugly Betty," DNA test results showed that baby William's mother is Wilhelmina and not Christina. This week we find Christina still devastated by that news. She has apparently been ditching work, leaving the ever-loyal Betty to cover for her. (An assistant can cover for a seamstress for days on end, and no one notices? C'mon, Mode.) Finally, the two gal pals meet for drinks and a round of darts (thrown at a picture of Wilhelmina's face), and Betty convinces Christina to come back to work.

But when Betty arrives at Mode the next day, there's no sign of Christina. Eve...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: 'Rabbit Test'

Oh, how the tables have turned on "Ugly Betty." Wilhelmina rides the subway to work, and Daniel takes the bus while Betty arrives in a limo (courtesy of her rich boyfriend). And yes, Wilhelmina and Daniel look about as traumatized by those experiences as you'd imagine.

Things have taken a turn for the worse at Mode. All the hope and promise that was established in the last episode has been tossed out the window. Come to find out, Mode's "Sex Issue" completely bombed, and the company is running out of viable financial resources. Daniel and Wilhelmina are now low on their personal c...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: The Sex Issue

Ugly Betty
Obvious plot devices are afoot on Ugly Betty. Ignacio leaves to take Justin camping with Elena and her nephews, which means... Betty and Hilda are free to run amok! In this episode, aptly named "The Sex Issue," it seems like almost everybody tries to get a little action.

First, we've got Hilda and Archie. They are embarking on their new relationship, but Hilda seems unenthusiastic overall. Then, there is Wilhelmina, who is missing Connor something terrible. Daniel and Molly try to broaden their comfort zones; and Betty and Matt toggle with the idea of taking their relationship to...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: 'A Mother Of A Problem'

March 13th, 2009 12:48pm EDT
Ugly Betty
It seems that in every "Average Person falls in love with Rich Person" story, Rich Person must have an evil parent that disapproves of Average Person. Thus, it goes without saying… Now that we know Matt is loaded, he must have a scheming, elitist mother who doesn't think Betty is good enough for her son.

Betty doesn't see this age-old cliché coming though - and Matt is partly to blame. We begin at Betty's house where Ignacio is cooking everyone breakfast on a Saturday morning. Matt comes over too, and, in the course of conversation, he remarks that his mom is dying to meet Betty. ...

Well, the nation's financial crisis has officially come to "Ugly Betty." From companies in shambles, to potential federal bailouts, to families losing homes, this episode is not short on economic hardship.

Now that Connor has run off with millions of company dollars, Meade sits on the brink ruin. Betty heads off to work dressed in (almost) head-to-toe black, afraid of looking too cheerful when the company is in such dire straits. She can't help but be a little happy though. Matt sends her jellybeans and a balloon at work and calls her to make flirty small talk. They have dinner pla...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: Things Fall Apart

February 27th, 2009 10:11am EST
Ugly Betty
If you were among those who were happy that Daniel and Wilhelmina were finally in loving, fulfilling relationships… last night's "Ugly Betty" probably crushed your dreams, huh? The title of the episode pretty much says it all: Things fell apart.

It all begins with Betty making herself a Facebook page. (Really? A twenty-five-year-old New Yorker who is working in the media isn't already Facebooking?) Elena is in California, so Ignacio is moping around the house. Daniel is sick and has checked into a fancy hotel where he can watch cartoons and receive pampering. Wilhelmina is being ...

Wow. Nurse Elena is patient enough to make homemade pomegranate juice, and she's got Ignacio pumped to go for walks in 30-degree weather! What a gal. Elena, Ignacio, and Claire get major air-time in this ep, and it makes for one of the better "Ugly Betty" episodes this season.

We begin with Betty receiving a phone call from Claire Meade who has been caught stealing mascara from a drug store. Betty dashes off to foot the bill (for which the totally loaded Claire doesn't seem to have the cash). And when Betty later talks to Daniel, Claire's odd behavior starts to make more sense… ...

Okay, so Betty really is moving back to Queens. Now, you may be asking, "Ummm…Didn't she just move to the city at the beginning of the season?" And you would be absolutely right. I don't get the short-lived story arc either. Maybe it was too hard to keep her family involved in the plot when Betty wasn't living under their roof - or, maybe with the current economic recession, the Ugly Betty writers wanted to toss a bit of reality into the storyline. But I say, "Boooooo." Personally, I liked Betty living in the city. It was a good shake-up from the previous seasons.

Anyway, whil...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: Sisters On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown

January 23rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Ugly Betty
When we last saw Betty, her dad had just been taken to the hospital - so it's no surprise that last night's "Ugly Betty" opened on a downer note. Ignacio has just had a quadruple bypass, which means that Hilda, Betty, and Justin are analyzing his every cough.

Betty goes crazy making lists to remind the fam of Ignacio's needs. But after two weeks in Queens, she has to get back to her life in Manhattan. She returns to her apartment where we find that Amanda is genuinely happy to see her roomie again - and a little confused that it was Ignacio, and not Betty, who had the heart attack...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: Dress For Success

January 9th, 2009 10:13am EST
Ugly Betty
So "Ugly Betty" is back from the holiday hiatus, and last night's ep quickly taught us three things:

1. Yes, Betty's YETI program storyline does have potential. Brilliant move to bring Marc in too - it gives the whole thing continuity.

2. Hilda is still getting random little subplots. This time, she is re-launching her salon as a salon-boutique fusion (aptly named "Hilda's Beautilities").

3. Love triangles (or is it a quadrangle in this case?) are hard to follow. I'm talking to you, Daniel/Molly/Connor/Wilhelmina.

We begin with Betty gushing over her idol Jodie Papadakis (pl...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: Bad Amanda

December 5th, 2008 12:21pm EST
Ugly Betty
One of the biggest (yet somehow subtle) "Ugly Betty" plot progressions may be taking place. Are Betty and Amanda…friends? Maybe this plot turn is predictable, but I still find it oddly satisfying.

The ep actually begins with Betty and Amanda at odds. Being her moocher-self, Amanda has Betty singlehandedly paying for all of their food, utilities, and rent. What's worse, when Amanda finally pays off a credit card, she "celebrates" with a shopping spree. Understandably, it's driving Betty bonkers. After some prodding from Hilda, Betty lays down the law and demands Amanda cover her h...

'Ugly Betty' Recap: When Betty Met YETI

November 21st, 2008 11:10am EST
Ugly Betty
Sure, there have been many good individual episodes of "Ugly Betty" this season… But the show's overall plot hasn't moved forward in any substantial way. Betty is still a plucky assistant for a flakey-but-decent-hearted playboy. That being said, last night's episode may have set the stage for future intriguing "Betty" plot developments.

We begin with the smug Nick Pepper returning to Mode for a casual visit. You may remember that Nick was Alexis' assistant (and Amanda's rival) way back when. Well, he left Mode, and through the program herself.

She goes to the YETI offices, ...

Another week, another episode of "Ugly Betty" in which Betty winds up a flustered mess. With all the big wigs and editors at Mode leaving for an annual Editors Retreat, Betty convinces Daniel to let her do final approval for the upcoming issue. The cover theme is "Eye of the Fashion Storm," and she sees a big career opportunity in the works.

While Betty makes career inroads, Wilhelmina still pines after Connor - in her own diva way, of course. At the retreat, Connor speaks to the group about Meade's marketplace struggles. The company's magazines aren't pulling in enough money, and...

Ugly Betty" star Becki Newton was an absolute cutie at the Tribeca Film Institute Benefit Screening of the movie 'Quantum of Solace' held in New York City on November 11th. If only we could all look this good in basic black!

The Outfit: A Dolce & Gabbana stretch black sateen bustier dress.

Sassy Factor: Becki keeps it all simple, but classy from the dress down to her make-up.

Sticking to the basics is sometimes best - a little blush on the cheeks, black mascara, enough eye-liner to make the eyes pop and a bit of eye shadow to create rosy lids. Hair pulled back ...

So what was the best thing about last night's "Ugly Betty" ep? Hands-down, it was: Amanda, Amanda, Amanda. She got the best lines and shifted between catty, shallow, clueless, and then pretty darn sweet.

But anywho, the episode actually begins with a flustered Betty. She's still crushing on her neighbor, Jesse, and she's really cranked up the flirtiness dial. She waits in front of their building to give him an "extra" coffee that morning, and he casually gives her a demo of his band's latest songs. They make small talk and plan to get together at Betty's place later that night. ...

So last night's "Ugly Betty" felt more like "Mean Girls 2" to me -- and not just because "Mean Girls" star Lindsay Lohan was making another guest appearance. Sure, Wilhelmina is almost always mean, but she's driven by career ambitions and power hungriness. Mark and Amanda are mean too, but they're driven by insecurities. But as I watched Kimmie mercilessly taunt Betty, I scratched my head. Why's Kimmie so mean? From what I can tell, Kimmie gets her kicks from picking on Betty Suarez, plain and simple. And the seemingly endless cycle of Kimmie tearing into Betty (for no really compelli...
