Welcome to tonight's very special "Taylor loses her damn mind" episode! But we have to build up to the full-bore craziness that breaks out at Brandi's ill-conceived beach party ("I thought I'd get all the girls together! In a small space! With lots of alcohol! It'll be Fun!). I mean, you can't just dive into this kind of mental breakdown without some build up. And "RHoBH" is nothing if not good at the slow burn. Still, strap on your straight jackets; it's going to be a bumpy ride to Crazy Town. To kick things off, we start on a happy, »

This is somewhat uncharted territory for "The X Factor," since American viewers have no idea what a Thursday hour-long elimination show is going to look like on Fox's new hit talent show. Our hunch? It'll look a lot like an hour-long "American Idol" results show. But let's find out for sure... 7:59 p.m. Et For what it's worth, I used a picture of Rachel Crow with this recap because I'm 99 percent sure she isn't going home tonight and I won't be spoiling anything. If she does? Well, that's just Crazy Town, folks! 8:01 p.m. Sorry, but I'm still confused by »

"It's just a little ping." This is what Derek Hough jokes of the injury he suffered while rehearsing for tonight's Dancing with the Stars. Sure, he looked fine while dancing with sister/guest star Julianne to an incredibly challenging jive, but is he Ok? And will he be able to compete next week? Plus, what is going on with the Crazy Town voting on this show?! "Yes, I dislocated my shoulder," Derek confirmed to us after the show. "This week it was bothering me a little bit. I had pain in my neck and I was overcompensating and it went into my shoulder." But fear not, Hough fans. Derek insists the injury won't keep him from the ballroom. »
A bunch of new interviews with the cast and Jane Espenson showed up in recent days. In random order:

Gjr: Are there any teasers you’d like to share of what we can expect in season one? Will there be guest stars?
On Tuesday, Parenthood returned for its 16 episode third season with an episode that encapsulated all that is good about the show. After an extended hiatus, we were thrust back into the lives of the Braverman family, where Adam is thinking about a career change, Julia wants to adopt a baby from the coffee girl at work, Crosby still isn't over Jasmine, and Sarah's trying to come to terms with turning 40, losing her child, and reuniting with a former flame. Not to mention, we've already seen arrests, a dance party, and the emergence of Drunk Haddie, and it's only episode one.
With a series of new storylines opened up in "I Don't Want to Do This Without You", where could things go for Team Braverman?
""Hey, If you're Not Using That Baby...""

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Pearl Jam Twenty Trailer I'll admit it: My interest in Pearl Jam has been waning. Don't get me wrong, I own all their albums, have »

Steve Brodner is a decidedly liberal, politically-charged, modern day Norman Rockwell meets Al Hirshfeld who satirizes the political arena by way of illustration and caricature. If you watched Warren Beaty run for Senator of Straight-Talkin’ Crazy Town in Bulworth or picked up a copy of Esquire, The Progressive, The Village Voice, or Harper’s Magazine in the last 30 years you’ve probably seen his work. If not, you can catch Brodner’s work on his every other weekly or so Slate V web series Smashing Crayons. I’m guessing the title is a play on the drawing techniques preschoolers and the artist’s three decades worth of frustration with government powers. At least that’s what it looks like. Whimsical cartoons with light, curly lines and vibrant colors fill each installment while Brodner’s voicever highlights whatever unsavory political issue is making headlines at the moment. »

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they responded to a domestic disturbance call between Shifty Shellshock and his girlfriend -- only to realize he had a few outstanding warrants, so they arrested him. We're told when cops arrived on the scene, they looked up Shellshock, real name Seth Binzer, and discovered the outstanding warrants before they even investigated the disturbance. He was picked up around 10:35 Am and booked into Van Nuys jail shortly after noon. »

Does anything say “romance” quite like a Valentine’s Day edition of The Bachelor? I mean, seriously, you’ve got one man, six ladies, gallons of booze, discarded bikini tops, mind games, tears, indiscriminate open-mouthed kissing, and horizontal shenanigans in the back of a limousine. Wait, what’s that? Doesn’t sound like your definition of a fun, sexy time? Then you probably just haven’t studied The 10 Simple Rules for Dating ‘Bachelor’ Brad Womack. Just like the man in question, I bet you’re “so excited” to get started. So without further ado…

Things begin ominously this week on The Bachelor. Brad takes the eight remaining women — D-Cup, Tragic Mom, Crazy Town, Embalmer, Shopgirl, Teeth, Other Blonde, and Whatshername — to scenic Costa Rica, then points to an active volcano in the distance. Suddenly, I can’t shake a mental fast-forward to Chris Harrison making an announcement at the most dramatic rose ceremony ever: “Ladies, there is only one rose left. Whichever one of you does not receive a rose will be driven to the mouth of the volcano and hurled into its fiery depths, a sacrifice to ensure our continued Monday night ratings »
