'The Voice' Recap: Pharrell Tries To Go Country And Adam Pitches A Sitcom

'The Voice' Recap: Pharrell Tries To Go Country And Adam Pitches
Things are getting dicey on The Voice. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams are filling up their squads for season seven, and spots are starting to be harder to come by. Let's see who got the good news, who didn't luck out - and who got the unfortunate montage treatment - in this recap of Tuesday's action.

Starting off the night is 15-year-old Katriz Trinidad from our hometown of San Diego, California. She's performing Etta James' "At Last." What is with these songs that keep reminding us of Will Champlin?! Anyway, Katriz sings like she's twice her age and quickly...

Adam Ferrara Previews The Return Of 'Top Gear'
Tuesdays are now officially the best day of the week, because Top Gear is back on History. After not one but two breaks, Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood are returning with four more adventures to wrap up the fourth season of the craziest and most entertaining show on wheels.

Naturally, we couldn't wait to find out what our favorite hosting trio has in store for the next month. So we connected with Adam last week to see what he'd tell us about what's ahead for Top Gear - and what other trouble he's gotten into.

There's still a lot of good stuff coming in the final four episode...

'The Voice' Recap: Adam Quips, Anita Comes Back, And The Blind G
After the first week of blind auditions, the next wave of The Voice is rolling on with two more hours of singers hoping to impress Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams. If you need a reminder, Team Adam has three of twelve artists, Team Blake and Team Gwen each have four, and Team Pharrell is ahead in the count with five. How many more people will get added to the lineup in this round? There's only one way to find out.

Batting leadoff on Monday night is Chicago native John Martin. John's rendition of "Sweet Pea" attracts three of our four coaches: Gwen, Pharrell a...

Tamala Jones Previews 'Castle' Season 7: 'This Might Be My Favor
Fan favorite Castle left audiences with a shocking ending last season, as Richard Castle never made it to his third wedding. But now we can finally get answers: tonight's season seven premiere, "Driven," picks up right where last season's finale left off.

Earlier this week, we sat down with Castle star Tamala Jones - who plays medical examiner Dr. Lanie Parish - to quiz her about the premiere episode and what else might be in store for season seven.

What was it like for Tamala to wait for resolution to the cliffhanger? "It was torture!" she laughed. "I say this all the time, I'm a huge Ca...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Trust Issues' - Diane Says Goodbye

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Trust Issues' - Diane Says Go
After last week's surprising premiere that landed Cary in some serious hot water, showed that Finn still has some claws that he's willing to use, and pushed Peter into a political corner, Alicia Florrick is going to need some serious help in this week's episode of The Good Wife. Thankfully, Taye Diggs has some time off from Murder In The First, and so he's coming to the rescue. Kind of. And Diane finally makes the leap she's been threatening to for weeks now. Everything is not okay, but things are looking pretty good in chapter two.

While Cary remains behind bars, Alicia visits, telling hi...

8 Potential Breakout Stars In Television

8 Potential Breakout Stars In Television
You know them: the actor who's really good at what they do, but for whatever reason, doesn't get as much attention as they deserve. Maybe they're on a show that doesn't have a huge audience. Maybe they get less screen time than their costars. Maybe they ought to have won several awards by now and they've never even been nominated. But you love watching them every week, and you just wish everyone else would give them more respect already.

The 2014-2015 TV season has quite a few of those actors, several of whom are poised to break through to bigger story arcs and wider acclaim. Whether they'...

John Barrowman Dishes On 'Arrow' Season 3, New Album, And Concert Tour

John Barrowman Dishes On 'Arrow' Season 3, New Album, And Concer
There's nobody busier than John Barrowman. The multi-talented star recently hosted ABC's summer series Sing Your Face Off, then released his first independent album You Raise Me Up, and starting October 8 we'll be able to enjoy him as a regular on The CW's hit Arrow. If you're keeping score, that means he can wow studio audiences, cover a Demi Lovato song, menace Starling City, make time for his legion of fans, and look fantastic doing all of it.

We caught up with John earlier this week to discuss the reception to his album, his plans for a corresponding concert tour, and what fans can loo...

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'A Lifetime Of Secrets'

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'A Lifetime Of Secrets'
What the heck is Jokers Wild? You've probably asked yourself that question this week. The answer is, a new sketch-comedy series from the genius minds behind Impractical Jokers, who were actually sketch comedians to begin with. It's more out there and inappropriate than Jokers, with all the same banter and gamesmanship that you know and love.

Sal, Joe, Q and Murr open the show discussing their long-running friendship and the theme of secrets. This leads into a bit where they're guests on a daytime talk show with classic chat show hostess Sally Jessy Raphael (and yes, that's really her). Sa...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'In Poor Taste Buds' - Murr Goes Numb

September 26th, 2014 8:56am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'In Poor Taste Buds' - Murr Goes
It's time for more unnecessary embarrassment with the return of Impractical Jokers. In this week's episode, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr once again prove that they are not athletes in any way, shape or form, and then break out an old challenge that last left Sal squirting a stranger with a water gun and Q slapping himself - literally. How are they going to fare this time? Not much better.

Challenge #1: Tennis Chumps
It's "do and say what you're told" time, this time while posing as tennis coaches in outfits that do not flatter any of the four Jokers whatsoever. Sal has a very high-pitched grunt, a...
