Halloween brings two truly frightening prospects to the Hamptons in this week’s Revenge – and I’m not even talking about the two deaths that occur during the episode.
First, there’s the ever-increasing chance that Conrad will be elected to public office. If ever something was worth a campaign bus-sized shudder, it’s that. Then there’s also the growing certitude that Victoria – already known for her Lady Macbeth style of child-rearing – is going to come face-to-face with the spawn she gave up years ago. Elsewhere, Jack makes an unlikely ally and Nolan… oh, poor Nolan. Read on as »

A young boy recently enjoyed a moment in the limelight when he got the opportunity to share the stage with "The Boss."
A YouTube video, uploaded on March 18, shows a young boy on stage with Bruce Springsteen during a concert in Brisbane, Australia.
"This was the chance in a lifetime for the young fan," wrote YouTube user "TheLouie01," who uploaded the awesome clip.
In the video, the boy can be seen singing Springsteen's 2003 hit "Waitin' on a Sunny Day" to a cheering crowd before doing a knee slide with the music legend.
Though few details are available about the video, a blog post on Springsteen's official website noted that a "lucky boy" had shared the mic with "The Boss" during Springsteen's March 16 concert in Brisbane.
The kid had apparently been singled out after he was spotted with a red cap in his back pocket -- a style that mirrored Springsteen's »

As a child of the '80s, I was exposed to Bruce Springsteen with Born in the U.S.A. But as I went to college, I became more educated in his music, and it led me on a hell of a journey. He's writing about experience and real life. "Darkness on the Edge of Town" spoke to me: It was gritty, real and raw. And the escapism in a song like "Thunder Road" - everybody should want that sense of freedom sometimes. Seeing Bruce in concert, I'm always amazed at what the crowd gives and what Bruce gives. It's a gang and it's a mentality, »

The CW president Mark Pedowitz has something for the Orwellian year 1984. In his first TCA appearance in 2011, he walked onstage to Alphaville’s 1984 hit Forever Young. Today he took the TCA podium to Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 anthem Born In the U.S.A. to present the CW’s midseason slate anchored by Sex And The City prequel The Carrie Diaries, which too is set in 1984. Pedowitz said he likes “the simplicity of 1980s” and believes that the nostalgia factor will bring older audiences to Carrie Diaries. He has no problem with that, stressing that broadening out the CW audience has been a priority for the CW and is reflected in the network’s fourth quarter ratings where the CW was virtually flat in the core 18-34 demo and up in total viewers. And Pedowitz said he was actually flattered by NBC topper Bob Greenblatt’s jab during the NBC TCA session that »
