'Extant' Recap: Progress is a Scary Thing
12 hours ago
The Extant two-hour special event launches us back into time when Molly first learned about what happened on the Aruna. After successfully averting a major, simulated on board crisis, she leaves the mock spaceship just as Sparks walks into the large room to deliver the news. He's clearly choked up as he tells them about the "oxygen explosion" that claimed the lives of the entire crew -- including his daughter. Fast forward to the present, Molly is showing Sam the transmission Ethan decrypted in the last episode. She knows the baby is alive and she has a plan to get Alan to tell her exactly where it is.

14 hours ago
Well, we are heading into the home stretch, So You Think You Can Dance fans! This week the top six dancers will perform with some of our favorite All-Stars as they try to dance their way to the finale. Who will win accolades this time?

Buckle up, folks. This is the So You Think You Can Dance live blog! »
'Big Brother 16' Recap: Zach Gets Zinged, Sabotaged and Betrayed
15 hours ago
The Zingbot's arrival is usually the best episode of the season. But for Big Brother 16, it's also the worst. Tonight we get plenty of great zingers at the expense of the HGs, but we also see the entire house plotting against the most entertaining person on the show. It's hard to enjoy the Zingbot when Zach is on his way out the door, especially since it's at the hand of his best friend and after another Team America mission set him up as the fall guy. »
'Top Chef Duels' Prediction: Who Will Survive Week 3?
20 August 2014 12:00 AM, PDT
It looked like Brooke Williamson had the judges eating out of the palm of her hand during last week's Top Chef Duels when she won two challenges and twenty thousand bucks. But when it came down to executing a big-top themed three-course meal, it was Shirley who emerged the ring leader. Shirley's presentation and sense of whimsy had her flying high while Brooke juggled furiously to keep up.
Fans of Williamson have reason to rejoice: she may be down, but she's not out. Brooke competed against Marcel Vigneron in The Knockout, and prevailed. Now she's guaranteed a spot in the final round and a second chance to re-enter the Duels.
'So You Think You Can Dance' Top 6 Predictions: Which 2 Dancers Will Go Home?
20 August 2014 12:00 AM, PDT
It was another amazing round of So You Think You Can Dance performances. Sadly, we also had to bid farewell to Tanisha Belnap and Rudy Abreu. This couple, who were paired together this season, were both pretty emotional as they were sent home. Thankfully, I had my tissues handy. Suffice it to say that goodbyes will only get harder, dance fans, as we move toward the season 11 finale.
So who shined this week, and who is in danger of seeing their So You Think You Can Dance dreams end? Let's try and determine who may be going home based on this week's dances. »
'America's Got Talent' Predictions: Who Will Be the Final 5 to Advance from the Quarterfinals?
19 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT
It's the end of an era, or at least the end of the quarterfinals for America's Got Talent's season 9. The last 12 acts took aim and fired their performances in the direction of all those in attendance at Radio City Music Hall and across the screens of millions of viewers. And those watching at home either found it very easy or very hard to vote this week.
Full disclosure, people: sadly, I expected a lot more high-quality entertainment than we've seen these past several weeks, and this week was no exception.
'America's Got Talent' Recap: The Final 12 Quarterfinalists Perform
19 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT
Fresh off my first-ever five-for-five prediction perfection, it's time for the final group of America's Got Talent quarterfinalists to hit the stage for a shot to advance to the Top 24. The voters, the judges and, most especially, me got it right last week, so here's hoping things play out as they should once again.
There have been very few shaft jobs this time around (Flight Crew Jump Rope! I hope you guys love how much I harp on your untimely elimination at the hands of these judges!), which is both comforting and disconcerting. Because it also means the level of talent isn't quite where you'd hope it would be. »
'Dance Moms' Recap: The Moms are Proven Right as Abby's Plan Backfires
19 August 2014 12:40 PM, PDT
As the weeks fade from summer to fall, Dance Moms remains the same. We know Abby will have a reason to place the usual suspects on the bottom. We know that Abby will not be happy with anything that is imperfect, yet she admits in the opening of this week's episode that she has no group routine. What? She's the choreographer who always knows what is best. With the group heading to a National Championship, I'm afraid that Abby's demands will reach a new high. »
'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 21 Premiere Recap: 22 Move Forward with Striking Selfies
18 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT
America's Next Top Model is back with 31 of the freshest contestants we've seen since, er, last season, and that's not all that's new. By the time the hour is over, however, nine contestants' modeling futures will end up in the gutter while the remaining 22 get a nasty little surprise.
If any in the group had majored in math, they would have figured this week's results were too good to be true: the largest group to make it to the 'show' was cycle 20's 16 models. So ... what gives? Kelly Cutrone is the bearer of bad news at the end of the premiere, so we'll save it for then.
'The Fosters' Mid-Season Finale Recap: Who Betrays Callie This Time?
18 August 2014 2:31 PM, PDT
In last week's episode of The Fosters, Callie lost her faith in Wyatt after he left her side to chase after Liam, Mariana decided she wanted to see Ana and Stef began to deal with her grief over losing the baby.
In this week's mid-season finale, "Someone's Little Sister," Callie turns to Robert Quinn in an effort to save Girls United, and Lena finally returns from that camping trip with Jude. Read on to find out if the 10th episode of The Fosters season 2 delivers the heart and heartache we have come to expect. »
'Under the Dome' Recap: Barbie Doesn't Know Who He Can Trust on the Outside
18 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT
With just a few episodes left of Under the Dome, there still seem to be more questions than answers. But perhaps it can all be answered with the mysterious red door that Pauline drew before the dome came down. This week, Barbie realizes that not everything is great outside the dome as he tries to make contact with Julia. Meanwhile, Big Jim appoints himself sheriff and tries to stick his nose into everyone's business, yet again. »
'American Idol' vs. 'X Factor' vs. 'Rising Star': Who Sang 'Billie Jean' Better?
18 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT
There are certain artists that are hard to cover because, well, how can you live up to the original? Take Michael Jackson, for instance. Many of his songs are considered classics. But what happens when you change up the arrangement completely and manage to make people forget that it's a Michael Jackson song? That's where today's Music Battle comes into play.
Everyone knows "Billie Jean." But Chris Cornell included a completely brand-new rendition on his 2007 album. And it looks like that is the version that has become standard on singing competition shows.
'The Bachelorette' Interview: J.P. Rosenbaum on Impending Fatherhood, Baby Names, and Contestant Advice
18 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT
From singleton to dad-to-be, it's been a whirlwind three years for The Bachelorette's J.P. Rosenbaum. First, the construction manager beat out 24 other eligible men vying for the affections of Ashley Hebert during the show's seventh season. He then married his lovely bride in a televised wedding officiated by Bachelorette host Chris Harrison.
Now he faces the biggest adventure of all: parenthood. I spoke to J.P. Rosenbaum recently to learn how he's reacting to his latest life change.
