'American Idol' Recap: Top 12 Girls Perform
Last night, American Idol 2015 concluded its first week of live performances. Wednesday night the top 12 Idol guys gave a nice round bowl of talent. Unfortunately, the top 12 girls didn't quite live up to the standards the guys set the previous night.

Some of the top 12 girls did produce some stellar American Idol performances. A handful of the performers on Thursday blew us a way. So anyone of those top ladies could make it a season for a woman winner. Here's our run through of the top 12 girls.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap ‘Staring At The End’– Student Becomes Teacher

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap ‘Staring At The End’– Student Becomes Tea
“I don’t like questions without answers,” Herman (Geena Davis) declares in a voiceover kicking off “Grey’s Anatomy’s” thirteenth episode.

It’s fair to say ambiguity is Herman’s enemy especially when packaged as an inoperable tumor living in her head. But, unlike Arizona who is doggedly trying to find a life-saving cure to preserve her future, Herman’s more interested in creating a lasting legacy.

In doing so, she takes on every in vitro surgical procedure within the Tri-State area to teach Arizona. Except for Bailey’s patient. Given Herman’s limited life span she’s pretty selective about...

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'The Kanes' - Meet The Parents

February 27th, 2015 9:05am EST
Archer
Season six of Archer has gotten some mileage out of how terrible a grandmother Malory is going to be (four words: "in a white church"), so it's natural that the show would now introduce baby AJ's maternal grandparents. That's the premise of "The Kanes," in which Archer meets Lana's parents and Lana's parents meet the insanity that is Archer.

Heading to San Francisco for this family reunion, we get the full briefing: both of Lana's parents hail from academia, which somewhat explains how she ended up as a protester before joining the spy game.

But Claudette and Lemuel Kane don't know that; ...

'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Isn't Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

February 26th, 2015 6:04pm EST
Keeping Up Wiht The Kardashians
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner are a whole lot richer after inking a record deal which will keep the family's hit reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians on TV for at least another four years.

The deal, secured by Kris, is worth a reported $100 million and is the biggest in history for a reality TV series.

The new contract also includes spinoff shows, like past hits Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

"You'll be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian family," a source told the New York Post's Page Six on Wednesday. "Th...

'Archer' Star Aisha Tyler: 'The Insanity Is Nigh For Lana'

'Archer' Star Aisha Tyler: 'The Insanity Is Nigh For Lana'
Tonight's episode of Archer focuses on Lana Kane and her parents, Claudette and Lemuel Kane (voiced by CCH Pounder and Keith David). With the parents coming to town, this was the perfect time for us to sit down with the voice of Lana, the ever-witty Aisha Tyler, to ask how much of Lana she sees in herself, if maternity has made Lana a bit nicer, and how crazy the Archer cast really gets.

"I think the insanity is nigh on Archer for Lana," teased Aisha. "That’s about all I can tell you, but she’s about to enter a world of reckless pain for in a few episodes, so I think that will be very fun....

'The Americans' Recap: Phillip's Job Crisis

'The Americans' Recap: Phillip's Job Crisis
In this episode, we learn that Phillip is as screwed up as his wife. Sure, Keri Russell’s Elizabeth character was separated from her family, brutally raped by a superior, and forced into a fake marriage with a guy she didn't know. But Phillip had to do the dirty with a guy with manboobs as part of his training. He’s straight. And did I mention manboobs?

His seduction of the CIA program head’s underage daughter Kimberly (and how far he might have to take it) is torturing him. It’s especially squicky because she’s around the same age as his daughter. Isn’t turning her to the cause almost a d...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta Kills Someone Off

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Kinda-Sorta
Is anyone else noticing that "It's Always Sunny's" title gags are starting to lose a little steam?

As solid as this season has been (astoundingly solid, considering how badly most shows sag once they hit the decade mark), that "Sunny" trademark of turning the episode title into a punchline has't been the same lately.

Episode titles like "Charlie Work" and "Psycho Pete Returns" just hang there. They describe the episode just fine, but there's no punch.

Remember how things were in the early seasons? Like when Dennis and Dee quit the bar to start new, super-successful dream jobs. Then, sec...

Survivor: Worlds Apart Premiere – And So It Begins

February 26th, 2015 12:27pm EST
Survivor
Yeehaw! It’s the 30th season of Survivor, and we’re going all cowboy this year! 18 plucky Americans, divided into three tribes, are jounced through the jungles of Nicaragua in the back of a pickup truck to meet our boy in blue, Jeff Probst.

Our contestants have been chosen based on their work styles. The White Collar group (the ones who make the rules,) Blue Collar (the ones who follow the rules,) and No Collar – those crazy freethinkers who live to break the rules. Why, there’s a No Collar fellow right now! You can tell because he looks vaguely like Fabio and has attached white feathers t...

'Empire' Recap 'Lyon's Roar' Jamal’s Coming Out Song

February 26th, 2015 11:56am EST
Empire - FOX
The last time the Lyon’s family put on a united front—that wasn’t a publicity stunt---was right before Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) went to prison. Sadly they’re even more divided now that she’s out.

Inspired by her and Lucious’ sexual reunion, Cookie wants to bring the whole family together for a Lyon’s legacy album and accompanying documentary. It will kill two birds with one stone: make Lucious immortal and mend family ties (at least some of them.) Basking in the day after hookup, Lucious (Terrence Howard) agrees. But Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) warns him about seconds.

“You want Cookie’s n...

'The Middle' Recap: "Steaming Pile of Guilt'

February 26th, 2015 11:49am EST
The Middle
The funny thing about how forgetful Frankie and Mike are with Brick (and with everything in general) is how much they expect themselves to not remember. That is just the nature of forgetfulness: you might recognize this trait in yourself, but that might only make you powerless to stop the inevitable. The extent of their neglect of their youngest child has become so thorough that they have a set of tricks for covering their tracks, like delaying his birthday to the following year. But it has gotten to the point that the usefulness of these tricks has been exhausted (they delayed his birth...
