John Stamos
It's hard to imagine that it's been 20 years since we were first introduced to the Tanner family, Winnie Cooper and Kevin Arnold. What happened to some of our favorite prime time stars two decades after they charmed us on the small screen?

Full House (1987-1995)

"Full House" was a show about talk show host Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) who was raising his three girls with his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and his best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) after his wife Pam is killed by a drunk driver. You laughed, you cried and you learned a lesson all in one episode.

Lost star Josh Holloway has been voted the "hottest hunk" on TV. The heartthrob actor, who plays bad boy Sawyer in the hit show, topped the poll in In Touch Weekly magazine. His co-star Evangeline Lilly - who plays Sawyer's love interest, Kate, in the Emmy-winning series - admits she can understand why Holloway has become a sex symbol.

She is quoted on the MSNBC website as saying: "He's the guy who opens doors, carries bags for women and makes sure they feel protected. They're very endearing qualities."

Handsome Holloway, who tied the knot with wife Yessica last year, beat a host ...

Jake in Progress
Burt Bacharach ("What's New Pussycat?", "Do You Know the Way to San Jose"), who was honored Thursday with two 2005 Grammy nominations, will stop by the fictional offices of Magnum PR when he guest stars as himself in an episode of Jake in Progress filming this week in Los Angeles.

The episode finds Bacharach serenading Annie (new series regular Charlotte Ross) at the office, much to the irritation of Jake (John Stamos), who is stressed that his ex-fiancee is once again working with him. The episode will air next year on ABC.
