Martin Short Is 'The Burning Beekeeper' On New 'HIMYM'

2/7/2012 8:12am EST
himym
How I Met Your Mother returned with a new episode last night, kicking off sweeps month for CBS. Expectations are running high, with HIMYM in its highest ratings season ever. Things got a little more crowded on Monday nights as the second season of The Voice moved into its new timeslot across the dial on NBC. The Peacock went for the bold move of premiering the singing reality competition right after Super Bowl XLVI, and over 40 million people stuck around after the game to watch. It will certainly be one of the more interesting ratings showdowns of the season.

The Bachelor
This week's episode of The Bachelor was fairly tame compared to the mystery guests, catfights and dramatics of the previous four, but it's evident that Ben is starting to take each girl a bit more seriously, though some more than others: can you blame him for seeming hooked on Courtney after she takes him skinny dipping?! Read on for a full recap!

The Bachelor, Horses, Date
Finally, some action! Though not the kind Bachelor Ben Flajnik might have been hoping for: the girls are getting cattier with eachother in the competition of his affection, a verbal feud erupts during the cocktail party and an unexpected departure proves that Ben is pretty sure of what he doesn't want in a girl.

In this episode, Ben and the women jet off to Park City, Utah, home of the famous Sundance film festival, where Rachel gets picked for a one-on-one date. In true show-y Bachelor fashion, a helicopter whisks she and Ben off to what was probably supposed to be a relaxing and romanti...

Emily Maynard Is The New 'Bachelorette'!

1/18/2012 4:00pm EST
Emily Maynard
Last summer, Emily Maynard tweeted that she didn't "want to be the Bachelorette" on the then upcoming season of ABC's hit series of the same name - but that was just after appearing on the 15th season of The Bachelor, which culminated with an engagement to star Brad Womack. The couple went through a very rocky engagement and subsequent breakup just six months after filming ended (Emily accepted Brad's proposal in November 2010, but the public didn't find out until the show's season finale the following March), and Emily wasn't interested in putting herself through the whole process again.

'The Bachelor' Recap - Episode 2 Delivers With Catfights, Tears And Lots Of Drama

1/10/2012 1:59pm EST
Group Date
After a slow start, the second episode of The Bachelor delivers: there are catfights and competition, a change of scenery, two one-on-one dates, plenty of steamy-hot tub moments, one very awkward group date, and of course, rivers of tears from Jenna the Blogger. In other words: we get what we tuned in for!

The girls are plucked from the LA and whisked to Sonoma, California, Ben’s hometown, and more commonly known as wine country. After the requisite ‘ooh’s’ and ‘aah’s’ over their new digs, Ben announces he has a date card – for Kacie, the administrative assistant from Tennessee.

Hollywood is a great place and the parties that I’ve had the chance to attend are sometimes the biggest events on the calendar every year. I’ve done a lot of parties in my years on the entertainment beat. If it’s movies, television or video games, events they all know how to throw some of the biggest parties.

I will always say that as long as the event has food and liquor, reporters will sign up to cover the party or the event without a problem! To tell you the truth I’ve done the same and sometimes that’s almost the only reason it’s worth attending some events. Especially...

Last weekend, the world of reality television came together to celebrate everything that is reality television. I must say that we just lost a few more brain cells because of the launch of Reality Rocks Expo. It just shows us that enough people like reality television enough that they would agree to pay $35 dollars to go see their favorite reality performer. I refuse to call them stars because in full reality, they have not done anything to get the star treatment that they are.

It’s not like sleeping with as many women or men in a big house rigged with lots of cameras is going to m...

'Bachelor' Bachelorettes Let Loose On Season Villain Michelle Money – Reality TV Highlights, March 6-12, 2011

Michelle Money,
“Bachelor” fans wait all season for the truth to spill out during each season’s Women Tell All special, and this season’s special was no exception; although, the truth that came out may not have been the truth viewers were expecting.

Yes, the women came down hard on Michelle Money for all the cruel things she said during the season, but it wasn’t really the things she said that bothered them; what bothered the women was that the Michelle that got to know in the house was NOTHING like the woman they saw in episodes. They felt confused by her two personalities and were beyond hurt that she w...

'Bachelor' Recap: Michelle's Meltdown (And The Women Tell All)

3/8/2011 11:20am EST
The Bachelor
Let’s be honest. After a pretty awesome tease for the requisite ‘Women Tell All’ episode of “The Bachelor,” the last thing we wanted to do was listen to Brad rehash his journey from most hated man in America to whatever he is today. Nonetheless, Brad is what we got. He likes getting slapped across the face, fangs, “Fangs,” and a good game player. He dislikes embalmers. He feels better about seeing the women on this tell-all than he did the last time. The concept of the recycled bachelor will always be absurd.

There are gross parties with Bachelor/Bachelorette alums advertising a second se...
