NBC was back with another hour-long prime-time telecast of U.S. Olympic swimming trials Tuesday night. Brendan Hansen (right) and Eric Shanteau finished 1-2 to qualify for the 100m breaststroke as Hansen’s longtime nemesis and Shanteau’s Japanese training buddy Kosuke Kitajima — portrayed as quite the evil troll by commentators Dan Hicks and Rowdy Gaines — lurked in the shadowy stands above the pool. He even clapped when the race was over. That imp! READ FULL STORY

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!
What is your damage, typically shirtless man-child Adam Sackler? You look like an “If They Mated” result between a Prometheus creature and Gilligan. You were presented as an enormous doucheboat (that you built all by yourself, gettin’ by with a little help from grandma’s $800 a month) on the premiere of Girls. Then in the last four episodes you became more complex — romantic, even — and I could tell I was supposed to warm up to you. You told Hannah you loved her, posted hundreds of “SORRY” fliers along a building, and carried a mattress and a chair down the stairs for Marnie. You were the best worst boyfriend in Brooklyn.
But you snapped right back to your old self at the end of the season 1 finale, so I’ve decided I have had it with your evil ways! (Until season 2, of course, when I’m sure I will love to hate you even more.)
Yes, Nick Offerman is hilarious as Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. And it stands to reason that the man married to the incomparable Megan Mullally would be the cat’s meow. (He watches The Bachelor, y’all!)
But I have to say that what put me over the moon for Offerman was his appearance on the Kathie Lee and Hoda hour of the Today show this morning. He and his Casa de mi Padre costar Will Ferrell showed up wearing bath robes and sipping drinks to promote their Spanish language movie. But the most striking thing about the interview for me was that it was the first time I saw Offerman without his trademark Ron Swanson mustache. And I have to say that it was… delightful.

Kristin Chenoweth arrived on the red carpet of last night’s 2011 American Country Awards to prove that, despite being a television and Broadway star, she was going to be the cohostess with the mostest. Talent, that is! Not that country fans needed much convincing, as the singer-actress made two things very apparent from the get-go: She’s a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll. See the photo of Chenoweth, in a stunning emerald chiffon dress, that seemed to have everyone asking the same question around the Internet today, “I thought Pushing Daisies got canceled?”
