Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

2 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the producers of Dancing With the Stars were brainstorming the weekly themes for Season 20.

I totally understood the corporate cross-promotion of last week’s Disney theme, and the emotionally charged Most Memorable Year motif of the week before that. But I’m struggling to figure out the exact components that made up this week’s Spring Break theme, other than the obvious climb in temperature that we’ve seen since Punxsutawney Phil poked his head out in February and reminded us he’s useless.

Even though a handful of Monday’s routines revolved around beachy themes, »

Scorpion Finale Recap: Bird's-Eye View

2 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you’re anything like me, you went into Monday’s Scorpion finale feeling a little skeptical.

Even though the CBS drama was taking on its most extravagant case yet, it also involved Walter clinging to life on the edge of a cliff. As in, the leader of Team Scorpion and the protagonist of a show that’s already been renewed for a second go-round. Knowing full well that Walter would likely survive this ordeal, you may have worried, like I did, that the season ender would lack the very suspense it was hoping to create.

Fortunately — even though Walter made it out alive, »
