'American Idol' Recap: Dexter Roberts Goes Home In A Shocker + Power Rankings

'American Idol' Recap: Dexter Roberts Goes Home In A Shocker + P
Well...this is embarrassing. It seems the Power Rankings have become about as useful as one of Keith's comments.

Yes, this season's favorite, Dexter Roberts, went home last night in a result that left me flabbergasted. He was a guy with a guitar. He sang country. He clearly was more popular than Sam Woolf who'd already been voted off previously. How exactly does this guy go home so soon?

It's a mystery that shows this series is getting more unpredictable. Likely spurred by the lack of unified voting base - it's not just tween girls texting, it's likely that weird middle-aged guy with a mo...

'Survivor: Cagayan' – Has Tony The Opportunist Overplayed His Hand?

April 17th, 2014 12:06pm EDT
Tony Vlachos during the ninth episode of SURVIVOR: CAGAYAN
Previously on, Survivor: Tony gave his idol to LJ, and LJ reciprocated, knocking two idols out of the game. When Kass flipped, the power shifted to Tony and LJ’s alliance. A new ‘special’ idol was hidden in camp, but the Hidden Immunity Idol Spencer found was just an ordinary one.

At Tribal Council, Morgan was the next voted off the island. Nine are left – who will be voted out tonight?

After Tribal Council, the remaining Survivors returned to camp. When Tony leaned his torch against a tree, he knocked over all the other torches, but walked away without picking them up. He was angry that...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: 'You Be Illin''

April 17th, 2014 11:46am EDT
Grey's Anatomy
Doctors treat sick patients all the time, but what happens when the doctors of Grey's Anatomy become the patients? We found out in this week's episode after a nasty flu made its way around the hospital.

After a patient sneezes on Arizona, she immediately knows that she'll be sick later in the day. Apparently it's some sort of sixth sense she's developed, which Alex mocks her about. She's not the only one, though - the hospital becomes overrun with patients dealing with flu-like symptoms and the staff starts to (literally) fall down one by one.

Arizona’s intuition forces her to move up her...

'American Idol' Top 7 Recap: Things Start Getting Weird

'American Idol' Top 7 Recap: Things Start Getting Weird
It's time to recap 'American Idol' with a skull-crushing cold and about half-a-bottle of Robitussin in my belly.

Look out. Things are about to get weird. Y'know, like letting rival contestants pick which song each Idol will sing.

Caleb Johnson sang "Family Tree" by Kings of Leon

Keith Said: That was a great choice. It really highlighted your strengths.

J-Lo Said: It's dangerous to put you first in the lineup: Now everybody else has to raise their game.

Harry Said: It sounded like a song that could be on your record.

The Verdict:

Are we completely certain Caleb isn't already in Kings ...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Season 10 Episode 19 I'm Winning

April 16th, 2014 4:57pm EDT
Grey's Anatomy
Okay. Jumping right in... Christina gets nominated for a Harper Avery award, and while everyone else makes a big deal, she tries to play it cool. Meredith is seething with jealousy, but she covers it well, going overboard in showing her support by planning a champagne toast. Bailey is also very jealous, and at first refuses to talk to Christina about the nomination. Bailey has been stuck on her genome mapping project, and is just waiting for a breakthrough, hopefully one that can save the life of the boy with no immune system, who still hasn't been able to come out of his isolation. While w...

'Supernatural' Season 9 Episode 18 Recap: Spoiler Alert!

April 16th, 2014 10:55am EDT
Supernatural
"Supernatural" is notorious for not only breaking the fourth wall, but demolishing it with a sledgehammer and a wicked smile. This week's episode, the beginning of the end of season 9, follows in that same tradition using the uber-villain Metatron as the narrator, and treating his manipulations like the calculated whims of a writer.

Grab your favorite ascot and let's dive in, shall we?

Welcome Back, Cas!

Castiel's trenchcoat is a sight for sore eyes. He's still bravely moving trying to help all the angels he can with his stolen grace that has rendered him unable to fly. A warbli...

'Fargo' Recap: Memorable Moments From The Pilot 'The Crocodile's Dilemma'

'Fargo' Recap: Memorable Moments From The Pilot 'The Crocodile's
FX is on a roll. The network has consistently put out quality original television, like Justified, The Bridge, and The Americans. (But let’s ignore Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management.) They take risks in programming and allow the show runners to control their product without too much interference. That’s why it’s safe to start watching any new FX series with high expectations. Fargo, which is loosely based on the Oscar-winning 1996 film, is the newest addition to the stellar FX roster.

Characters Worth Remembering:

Lester Nygaard: As King of the Sadsacks, Lester (Martin Freeman) is meekne...

'The Following' Season 2 Episode 13: The Downfall Of Mike

April 16th, 2014 5:00am EDT
The Following
Well, The Following 2.13 concluded on a resoundingly tragic note, as Mike pumps bullets into Lily, to the horror of Ryan and Max.

Neither lifted a weapon to stop him. They hoped their appeal to Mike's humanity might have stopped him, and it almost did. Of course, it could be argued that what Mike did was in humanity's best interests, given Lily's propensity for dealing out death. I'm assuming here that she's indeed dead - you clearly never know for sure on The Following - and short of someone's head being blown clean off, you never know for sure on any television show.

But was Mike's pu...

'Dancing With The Stars' Disney Night Sees First Perfect Score And Shocking Elimination

"Dancing with the Stars" heralded a new concept this evening, a first for the series. Each dance was to be based on a famous Disney movie during Disney Week. This week had guest judge Donny Osmond behind the table critiquing the contestants. Osmond won Season 9 of the series and has an inside track on what the judges want. He said, "I feel like I'm home" and went on to discuss his long history with Disney, as his brothers were discovered by Walt Disney himself. Unfortunately this would be Cody's last week in the ballroom, as he was voted out of the competition.

New Dance Round:

'Bones' Season 9 Episode 21: Freezing and Thawing

April 15th, 2014 10:15am EDT
Bones TV series
A strong triple-threat Bones 9.21, with a great case, and two relationships pitched into interesting and important developments.

The case begins with the mystery of how a dead body can be composed of pieces that apparently died at three different times. The solution involves cryogenics - the freezing of bodies and brains for later revival, at a time when we can do that, and, in the case of the frozen brain, construct a body to go with it, too. This is not science fiction -- not the freezing part, in any case, which has been occurring in labs around the world for years. When you inject ...
