The Biggest Loser has returned for a 15th season and it looks to be a good one. I cried six times and mentally vowed to work out tomorrow morning at least four, so all is right in Biggest Loser land (sponsored by Subway). You know what you sign up for when you turn on this show: tears, transformations, screaming, sweat and probably a vomit montage. Tonight’s premiere certainly delivered all of those in spades.

Newsflash, guys: All along, Miley’s been acting this way because she wants attention. I’ll pause while you pick your fallen monocles off the floor.
The 20-year-old revealed her dastardly strategy this morning on Today, telling Matt Lauer that her notorious VMAs performance “went exactly as planned” — after all, “it’s a month later and we’re still talking about it.” And when Lauer asked Cyrus if she’s surprised by the attention she’s been getting lately, Cyrus answered, “Not really. I mean, it’s kind of what I want. I’m an artist so I’m hoping I get a little attention. Otherwise, my record sales might be a little sketch.”
Quelle surprise! What’s next, the notion that men find Scarlett Johansson attractive?
Sean Hayes has many talents: He sings, he dances, he inspires me to buy Will and Grace box sets. But as last night proved, his trademark frantic energy isn’t exactly enough to carry a workplace/family sitcom.
Sean Saves the World strives to be both funny and relatable. In practice, it’s both of these things at varying — but rarely intersecting — times. The first scene opens with Sean, a grown man, sticking a metal knife deep, deep into the depths of a broken toaster. Luckily, he’s just acquired his daughter, Ellie (Samantha Isler) as a new roommate; perhaps she can teach him about electrical currents.
Too much talk and too little action is not a good thing, and that’s what we saw as NBC’s rebooted police drama Ironside premiered Wednesday night. Why? Well, it was just … boring. In the 1960s, the show was a hit starring Raymond Burr, but its new incarnation doesn’t have a good shot at connecting with a modern audience.
Starring Blair Underwood as Robert Ironside, an aggressive, sexually charged officer in the NYPD detective unit, the show depicts the life of a paraplegic officer. Due to a huge settlement with the city, he’s been given his own building and his own team but still has to report to a boss. The pilot opens up with the detective aggressively questioning a suspect involved in a kidnapping. Ironside displays a mixture of extreme cockiness and intimidation, maintaining a macho attitude in spite of his disability. You can’t blame him, though. In his line of work, he needs to establish a presence. The first episode takes us through Ironside’s dealings with his office while flashing back to moments preceding his handicap.

Welcome back, Michael J. Fox. I mean Mike Henry. No wait — welcome back, Michael J. Fox, and nice to meet you, Mike Henry. After appearing on other shows in guest stints and recurring roles, Fox is officially back to TV business as he leads his own single-camera comedy series, The Michael J. Fox Show. READ FULL STORY
That would be the promise of a few cool cameos from the cast of Breaking Bad, which Fey slyly implies as a possibility in the promos below. Sure, she immediately backtracks, admitting that Saturday Night Live has no such thing planned — but we can dream, can’t we?
In any case, watching these promos sort of feels like coming home to the old Fey-era SNL — a comforting notion, considering how much the show will change this year. (The countdown to Late Night with Seth Meyers begins… now.) Sure, any Fey-hosted episode will necessarily feature plenty of big-name cameos (Amy?!) and callbacks (Palin?!) — but more importantly, it’ll have a backbone formed by Fey’s strong writing and zillion years of SNL experience. And if the promos are any indication, she clearly hasn’t lost her touch since 30 Rock ended.
Watch here — especially if you’ve ever wanted to see blurred footage of Fey’s chest. I know, I really buried the lead.
As the cool kids (and the contestants on MTV’s The Challenge) say, the O.G.s are back! Tonight kicks off season 5 of the Emmy-winning reality series The Voice. And as longtime fans of the show know, things will be a little more familiar this season thanks to the return of all four original judges: Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green.
After CeeLo and Christina took last season off (and were replaced by one-namers Usher and Shakira), they’re ready to return to their red spinning chairs. So to get you all in the mood for tonight’s shenanigans, here’s our rundown of what we want to see from this “original” season:
CeeLo’s animal of choice: First, it was Purrfect the cat, and then it was Lady the bird. So what furry friend will be joining Team CeeLo this season? My fingers are crossed for a baby tiger with a monkey literally on its back! READ FULL STORY
SPOILER AHEAD: If you haven’t seen Sept. 18′s America’s Got Talent finale and don’t want to know who wins, stop reading now!
After six finalists battled it out in Monday’s performance finale, it was time to reveal the season 8 winner of America’s Got Talent. Out of magician Collins Key, country singer Jimmy Rose, opera trio Forte, comedian Taylor Williamson, dancer Kinechi Ebina, and singer Cami Bradley, America chose….
A Parks and Rec gag reel that’s as long as an actual episode of Parks and Rec? That sounds like LIT-trally the greatest thing that has ever existed.
Warning: NSFW language ahead, along with many scenes of Chris Pratt giggling.
