Miley Cyrus dealt with body images after starring in the Disney Channel's hit series "Hannah Montana."

The 22-year-old says that producers pushed her to conform to a certain standard that caused "some body dysmorphia" while playing teen Miley Stewart and the show's eponymous pop star alter-ego on the kids' series.

"From the time I was 11, it was, 'You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing,'" she tells the September issue of Marie Claire magazine. "Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 1...

'Supernatural' 7.13 Recap: Daddy Dearest

2/4/2012 8:29am EST
As “Supernatural” fans, I’m sure we’ve all faced the feat that is explaining the show to friends we’re trying to lure to the dark side. It was difficult in the first season, so add a few dozen deaths of the main characters, one missing soul, an Apocalypse and an one reverently stored trench coat, and it’s damned near impossible. “Supernatural” is wonderfully and horrifically complicated, just how I like it. So I was taken aback at how the show returned with a straight-forward, simply told episode, especially after the last time-warping extravaganza. “The Slice Girls” was directed by pr...

Canceled and Ended Shows in 2011
Ask the typical American to name 20 currently airing primetime television shows and they probably can't without doing some serious thinking. They'd probably even ramble off a few that were cancelled during the year or the year before without even realizing it.

In 2011 a myriad of television shows come to an end with over 80 leaving the airwaves, most of which you probably never even heard of (some were so small we didn't even include them in this year-end roundup).

Some had tearful goodbyes after long runs (Oprah, Big Love, Rescue Me), and others were canceled so fast we hardly even knew ...
