From a homeless kid to king of the world – Leonardo DiCaprio turns 38 years old today!Leo landed his first major break on the popular sitcom "Growing Pains" in 1992 – joining the cast in the final season as Luke, the homeless boy who was invited to live with the Seavers. Even though the series was canceled shortly after he joined the cast, it was (obviously) just the beginning of DiCaprio’s career! Leo went on to star as Romeo in "Romeo and Juliet" and of course as Jack Dawson in "Titanic," skyrocketing him to international heartthrob status. Today, the "Departed" star is one of the most versatile actors of our generation … and he’s still the spitting image of Luke! But how has the rest of the cast held up?

The seventh series of Emmy award-winning How I Met Your Mother is now available to own on DVD and to celebrate this release we’ve taken a look at the top five, all-time running jokes in the show:
1) Slap Bet
Spawning a slapmania of story lines including Slapsgiving, Marshall and Barney’s infamous ‘slap bet’ is hands-down (no pun intended) the funniest running joke. When Marshall and Barney make a bet over Robin’s past, the loser is to be punished with a slap. Lily is appointed the “Slap Bet Commissioner,” and ultimately, after a few misunderstandings, she awards Marshall 10 slaps he can use all at once, or five slaps he can dole out whenever he sees fits. Barney chooses the five slap option, but this proves to be an ill-conceived decision, because, as Ted points out, Barney’s never going to know when the next slap will come and »

When The L.A. Complex premiered in April, it made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The Canadian transplant’s first episode attracted only 646,000 viewers and a paltry 0.3 rating, making it the lowest-rated broadcast drama debut of all time. In the weeks to come, things barely improved: the series, now in its second season, has never come close to breaking 1 million viewers, and its July 25th episode drew just 390,000 pairs of eyes. That’s worse than Quarterlife, guys. Quarterlife!
But the few hundred thousand people watching The L.A. Complex each week know something that you don’t: The show is good. »

CNN is looking to add reality "nonfiction" programs to its weekend lineup. A CNN exec tried to make the move sound not-so-bad by pointing out that MSNBC has long aired "nonfiction" programming in the form of Lockup. I don't think that made anyone feel better.
Desmond Tutu and eight other Nobel Peace laureates are protesting NBC's military themed reality series Stars Earn Stripes, accusing the series of trivializing war and presenting it as entertainment.
Thank goodness. The Voice is changing the unpopular battle rounds for its third season. This time, the other coaches will get a chance to steal the losing singer for their team. Unfortunately, they're also adding a knockout round that sounds like a chance to make sure one part of the show is really frustrating.
Where are they now? VH1 can tell you.
The network just released details on its upcoming series "Miss You Much." The eight-episode, half-hour show will premiere in 2013.
"Miss You Much," hosted by Catherine Reitman, will profile three celebrities each week and look at what their lives are like now, and ask them the burning questions fans are dying to know.
"There's one or two people where I think you'll go, 'Oh, that's what happened to them!'" Reitman said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "They laugh about some of their trauma from their past, some of the stalkers they experienced ... to share the details with some of us who were such extreme fans when they were at their peak is a real opportunity for them."
"Miss You Much" will feature:

The L.A. Complex Set Visit Preview: Teasers for Season 2
During our recent visit to the set of The L.A. Complex in Toronto, we had the opportunity to sit down with executive producer Martin Gero, who talked to us about the big developments from season 1 and how they will affect the characters going forward. Here's what's in store for season 2 of The L.A. Complex:
Abby's Big Chance. Despite making the decision to head back to Toronto in the season 1 finale, Abby decided to stay in Los Angeles when she got a call about booking a small movie gig. “It’s a small, two-line part in a movie. But it’s a job," Martin explains. "That one doesn’t go as planned. Alan Thicke is joining the show for a bunch of episodes. He’ll be playing this character named Donald who is the star and executive producer of a 7th »

Alan Thicke, former "Growing Pains" star and talk show and game show host, stopped by the set of "Duets" last week and the show's host Quddus told "Good Day La" (weekdays at 7 a.m. Et on Fox in Los Angeles) he was impressed by his moves with the ladies.
Robin had similar things to say about his dad before "Duets" launched. "He's pretty much always been giving me little tips here and there. He tells me to get my charm and my game together. He pretty much leads by example. »

Just when you thought Adam Sandler had hit bottom and could only improve upon a lackluster string of film’s that have to make you question the quality of his earlier gems, he proves it can always get worse. From Sean Anders (the director of Sex Drive) and David Caspe (creator of Happy Endings) comes one of the most unoriginal comedies in years. Recycling the ‘disastrous wedding’ trope that I’m sad to say was actually done better in Meet the Parents—a film I also abhor—we’re made to watch a bunch of despicable people be despicable while a slew of Sandler’s real life friends join the fun so you can laugh at their inclusion rather than the stale, raunchy jokes coming from their mouths. That’s My Boy‘s only redeeming feature becomes the constant guessing of who may show up next.

"I wanted to take a minute to say I'm very grateful and I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to break you into fatherhood," said Don, leading up to the big reveal. "I wasn't the first to make you a grandfather, but Jessica and I have your fifth grandbaby."
Et was exclusively on set of The Talk as Donny received the good news, and moments after the big reveal, he disclosed an emotional backstory to the announcement that made his son's surprise that much more of a blessing »
However, Robin said he didn't mind sharing his dad with Kirk during those years, as the baby-faced actor unwittingly contributed to the success of Robin's love life at the time.
"No, because luckily, he didn't hit on any of the girls on the set," Robin answered with a laugh. "He left them all ...

With so many reality singing competitions on TV, ABC is hoping to raise the bar with its new series "Duets", a show that partners an amateur hopeful with a superstar singer on the live stage. But don't expect mentors Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Robin Thicke and Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles to spin around in big red chairs. These celebrities are hitting the road to find the next voice.
The biggest draw for Thicke, however, who has only had one song succeed on the pop charts (2006's "Lost Without U"), is being introduced him to a whole new audience.
HuffPost TV chatted with the new reality singing judge about his new gig on "Duets", what her learned from his dad ("Mr. Smooth") and what "morning coffee on the veranda" (a reference he made as a mentor on "The Voice") really sounds like.
What made you want to join ABC's "Duets"?

R&B singer-songwriter Robin Thicke traveled across the country to find potential singing partners for Duets, this year's 53rd singing competition premiering on ABC tonight. In honor of the occasion, we asked Thicke, whose parents Alan Thicke and Gloria Loring wrote and sang the themes for Diff’rent Strokes and The Facts of Life, to weigh in on some of pop's strangest pairings. "Once you have two energies, it's all about how the energies come together, you know? It could be explosive or completely boring," he says. And no, we didn't ask him about "Ebony and Ivory" because, really, hasn't it all been said?Bone Thugs-n-Harmony decided to sample Phil Collins's “Take Me Home” for their 2003 single “Home.” Collins was so cool with it, he sang the chorus himself, earning him the nickname Chrome Bone from the group. Robin’s Response: He hasn’t heard it. “I like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. »

Robin Thicke may play the sexpot role well, but the handsome soul singer says his personal anxieties can be wearing, especially now that he's about to become a TV star.
"Being in front of a camera makes you so sensitive, and insecure, and you know, an alcoholic," jokes the 35-year-old musician with Zap2It at a press conference for his new show "Duets" on Thursday (May 17). "It's so hard not to want to drink at the end of these days sometimes."
The new ABC music competition series, debuting May 24, pairs star recording artists Thicke, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Jennifer Nettles, along with two undiscovered talents of their choice in a battle to give the best performance as a duo. Thicke joined the show initially for "selfish" reasons, feeling it was an opportunity to bridge his more soul-centric music onto pop radio, but later found it was also a chance »
