Who Was Sent Home On ‘Big Brother’ Last Night?

7/24/2015 8:32am EDT
BB17
The Audrey Show’s been cancelled. And it’s a real bummer. 90% of the interesting content from BB17 has come from her actions, gameplay, and personality. If she hadn’t played so hard, so fast, she probably would have made it much further in the game. People in the house loved her and wanted to be a part of her positive story, but the constant rumor mongering turned people against her hardcore. However, she also set the tone for the entire season. If she didn’t play so hard, maybe the other players wouldn’t have followed her leave. Who knows what the season will hold without her? Without the ...

'Suits' Recap: Harvey And Mike Go 'Toe To Toe' With Travis Tanner

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Toe To Toe' - Can You Ever Trust An E
It wouldn't be a season of Suits without a guest appearance from Travis Tanner, who once again wreaks havoc in Harvey's life on multiple levels. But "Toe to Toe" is less about Tanner and what another fight with him says about our favorite TV lawyer - plus, how far will Louis go to undo his past misstep? Everyone's on the edge this week, and that includes the audience on the edge of their seats.

Harvey's still trying to get his stuff together, and that includes hallucinating Donna in bed with Tanner (Eric Close), which prompts him to head back to Dr. Agard (Christina Cox) for another shrink...

'BB17' Week 4 Veto Rundown

'Big Brother' Review: Memorable Moments From Week 4 Veto, Audrey
How can the season with the best feeds in years be such a disappointing TV show? Many feed watchers were excited to see this episode after everything that happened before the veto ceremony, only to see a watered down lie on the air. What narrative are they trying to sell? That Shelli is a victim of Audrey? Making it look like this wasn’t planned from the start (it was) makes Audrey look more paranoid than in reality. Is all of this in service of not making the season’s only solid showmance, not the villains? Because it’s far too late for that.

Worst of all, after weeks of complaining, the ...

‘AGT’ Best Gems Among A Cluster Of Mishap Performances

'America's Got Talent' Recap: The Best Performances From Week 2
Last night, America's Got Talent 2015 cut contestants for a second week. Last week, we noted that a lot of the acts were underwhelming. Sadly, this week on America's Got Talent, things went from okay to very bad. A few of America's Got Talent's early favorites really stumbled. We saw people forget their lines and others give lackluster performances. Among the cluster of mishaps, a few performers did manage to shine.

They made us and guest judge Michael Bublè excited to see what they could do in the next rounds. Here are the best performances from the second week of cuts.

‘RHONY’: Carole Embarks On London Journey & More

7/22/2015 8:40am EDT
Real Housewives Of New York City Season 7 Episode 16: 'London Ca
Every now and then, a reality show actually gets real. This is one of those times, with a very poignant episode that has Carole embarking on a trip to England -- with castmate and fellow widow, Dorinda by her side -- to retrieve her husband Anthony's ashes from the church where the urn has been housed for the past fifteen years, because it is being torn down.

Carole was married for five years to JFK Jr.'s cousin and best friend, Anthony Radziwill. Carole eventually became best friends with John Jr.'s wife, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.

Carole and Anthony met as journalists at ABC News. She c...

'The Fosters' Season 3 Episode 7 Recap: 'Faith, Hope, Love'
On last night's episode of The Fosters, each family member dealt with a situation that tested their faith. Their faith in humans, god, and themselves was tested by others. However, through it all, they let love guide them to the right answers.

Past Mistakes

Stef tells Callie that they saw AJ and her kissing. Due to that, they want him to stay with Rita until Mike gets his foster license. Later that night, they inform the children about AJ's sudden departure.

However, they leave out the real story behind it. Much later, Ty visits Mike's house. He wants AJ to run away with him. Therefore, ...

'The Bachelorette': 'The Men Tell All' Didn't Tell Us Much

7/21/2015 6:31am EDT
The Bachelorette
With just a week before the season finale, The Bachelorette gives us its traditional The Men Tell All episode. Will the men really tell all? Will these two hours of reality TV be fraught with controversy, thanks to this- the "most controversial season" of The Bachelorette, ever?

The answer: No!

But it was still reasonably entertaining. Let's recap.

Like any The Men Tell All, this one's rife with Bachelor cross-promotion. So we open not with the men telling all, but with an extended plug for Bachelor in Paradise. We don't need to recap a promo, do we? You could just watch this one, right ...

'The Strain' Recap: Less Science, More Bloodsucking, Please!

7/19/2015 10:55pm EDT
The Strain
Hey, remember that awesome (also, gross) worm barf from last week's The Strain premiere? Well, there's none of that in our second episode, "By Any Means." Not a single barfed worm. It's kind of a shame.

I'm being serious (kinda)- because "BK, NY" introduced a heap of new neat concepts, and because "By Any Means" slams on the brakes and plays it very close to the vest with its newly-introduced vampire powers (worm barf, blind vampire schoolchildren), it can feel a little stale.

Setrakian (Old Setrakian, that is) does almost nothing the whole hour but flip through old books and yell surly o...

Last Night's 'Hannibal' Was The Freakiest. Thing. Ever.

7/19/2015 6:42am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Digestivo"- an alcoholic drink served at the end of a formal, multi-course Italian dinner. Sometimes it's grappa (brandy made from grapes), sometimes it's limoncello (lemon liquor). Typically, the digestivo is meant to help digest (well, duh) the massive pile of food you just consumed.

Oh, and in case you didn't get the memo (thanks for the short notice, NBC), Hannibal airs on Saturday night from now on, and for the rest of the season. Saturday night is where TV shows are dumped and left to die. And Hannibal will almost certainly not get that season four, but now there's a movie in the ca...

This Week's 'Strike Back' Flashback

'Strike Back' Flashback: Cinemax Season 3 Turns Up The Heat
We're two weeks away from the final season of Strike Back, and that means it's time for one last Flashback. Cinemax season three (season four overall) continued to improve the show for a number of reasons, and was basically the starting point for the series as we're about to rejoin it. It's rare to see a program that legitimately continues to top itself every single year, but Strike Back accomplished that in spades.

This season sees Lt. Col. Locke (Robson Green) officially take command of Section 20, which was a big plus for the series. Firstly, it's Robson Green. He knows the TV medium in...
