After missing a court date, “Jessie’s Girl” singer Rick Springfield was arrested in Los Angeles earlier today for a charge relating to a 2011 DUI conviction.

Last month the singer was expected to appear before a judge to prove that he had completed a court-ordered alcohol education program as part of a plea deal he struck with prosecutors two years ago to avoid jail time.

However, he failed to appear, and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday. Police went to Springfield’s Los Angeles home on Friday, and he was taken into custody at Lost Hills Sheriff's Station.

Expectations are high for Joss Whedon's SHIELD live-action superhero series. While animated series based on comics have flourished ever since Batman: The Animated series broke onto the scene in the early 90s, live-action shows based on comic books are hit-or-miss. They require a larger budget to showcase super powers and outlandish costumes and mutants. Despite this, we were able to point out the five best live action TV shows based on comics - and managed to cut down the worst to five.

What Can We Expect To See In Season 4 Of 'Californication'?

Californication Season 4
So, “Californication” is returning soon, and everyone’s favorite blind-in-one-eye leading man David Duchovny reprises his role as the perpetually creatively-blocked novelist Hank Moody. And I bet you real money he’s going to be having sex with people this season. Lots of sex. That he’ll feel bad about later.

Actually, that’s the entirety of “Californication.” Hank Moody has sex, feels bad about it later, then does it again. But gosh if he isn’t just so darn loveable.

I know the show is about that cycle. I know the show is supposed to be about how Hank Moody is a sex addict, and how he’s t...

Spotlight On Australian Entertainers

What is it about Aussies that Americans find so fascinating? Is it the cute accents? The laid-back attitudes? The "party animal" reputations? It could be a mix of all of these traits. It could also be because, although we speak the same language and our cultures have many similarities, many of us know very little about Australia. That strange yet familiar vibe makes those down under denizens appear exciting and mysterious - an irresistible combo!

Since Americans are also fascinated with celebrities, it's no surprise that so many awesome Aussie entertainers have found fame in the U.S. ...

'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew': One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

3/3/2008 10:49am EST
Without The Office or 30 Rock to get me through these cold Thursday nights, I’ve had to turn to VHI to fill my TV watching needs (because God forbid I actually, you know, pick up a book or something). Thankfully they have put the kibosh on "I Love the 80's" reruns. I like that show just as much as the next person, but how many times can I see Lea Thompson wax nostalgic about Hyper Color t-shirts? (Answer: 11).

Now, instead of filling the air waves with the comedic stylings of Rick Springfield, comically riffing on Ms. Pac Man, we get celebrities in rehab! Except they aren’t exactly ce...
