'Chicago P.D.': The highs and lows of season 1

What started as the Chicago Fire spin-off quickly turned into a show all its own. And I can say that confidently as someone who actually watched Chicago P.D. before I went back and started Fire.

The world of Voight, the sometimes-dirty cop, and his Intelligence Unit was one of doing whatever it took to catch a criminal, and even more so, doing whatever it took to get revenge. And after a season finale cliffhanger that made viewers question everything they knew about Voight, it’s time to look back at the season as a whole — what got us hooked and what we could’ve done without.

'Joe Millionaire' winner gives her take on 'I Wanna Marry 'Harry"

When Fox announced its new reality series, I Wanna Marry “Harry”, many viewers flashed back to 2003 and the days of Joe Millionaire – a.k.a. the first time women were fooled into fighting for a man’s heart on TV, only to find out he wasn’t who he said he was.

But other than the whole Prince Charming angle, is there much of a difference between Joe and “Harry”? People asked Joe Millionaire winner Zora Sabrina (formerly known as Zora Andrich) to chime in. As she put it, “Just when I thought they’ve covered every reality show idea … Fox is at it again! I suppose it has been a decade, so in all fairness, a good deceptive reality show was due.” READ FULL STORY

'Chicago P.D.' finale: Who shot [spoiler]?

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the Chicago P.D. season finale, stop reading now!

In the world of Chicago P.D. nothing is black and white. After all, the man at the head of the Intelligence Unit was in prison not all that long ago. But could he be going back?

That’s the question that fans are pondering after the final 30 seconds of that finale, in which Voight walked onto a crime scene that housed Jin’s dead body. Jin. As in a member of Voight’s Intelligence Unit. As in a member of this family we’ve come to love. And as in the (lovable) rat who’d been reporting to Internal Affairs all season, a fact that Voight had earned just half an hour earlier. So had Voight pulled the trigger and killed his own man? My gut tells me no. Voight has a thing with killing cops, and at the end of the day, he did love Jin. Then again, wouldn’t that make for an interesting season 2? R.I.P. Jin. I’ll miss your weekly bursts of brilliance. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy strip down for a revealing interview -- VIDEO

There are many mysteries in this world, from Big Foot to the Bermuda Triangle. But there’s one mystery that’s about to get solved: Which Chmerkovskiy brother needs a bigger hat?

Let me explain. During a photo shoot for People in which Dancing With the Stars‘ Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy wore nothing but Pharrell-inspired hats on their crotches, the brothers also sat down for an interview. “Covering up” with nothing more than a towel/blanket — can you say luckiest interviewer ever? — the Ukrainian sex symbols played a game of “Him or Me.” The questions included things like who works out more, who had more girlfriends growing up, and, of course, who needs the bigger hat. Get it?

Another important note from the video? Maks’ life motto: “When in doubt, take off your shirt.” I’m telling you, guys, this is pure gold.

Watch the nearly naked brothers dance around and chat below: READ FULL STORY

Yes, the boys have died a lot. READ FULL STORY

Why 'Survivor' is still kicking butt 28 seasons in

It was a debacle. The battle of the sexes twist didn’t work. The cast was unlikable, including one dude who called himself Troyzan and another dude who called himself Tarzan. It was ridiculous. So when Survivor: One World signed off in the spring of 2012, many wondered openly about the health of the franchise that gave birth to network reality TV way back in the summer of 2000. Maybe it was finally time to snuff Survivor’s torch.

Except that’s not what happened. Ever since then, Survivor has been so hot that Michael Skupin may burn his hands on it again if he stands too close. There have been four installments since One World (a.k.a. The Season That Shall Not Be Named) and each has been absolutely riveting, culminating with Survivor: Cagayan, in which immunity idol hoarding Jersey cop Tony and cerebral underdog Spencer will continue to battle it out in tonight’s finale along with Ninja Stealth Woo and Chaos Kass. It has been the most consistent run of reality excellence the show has ever had. The question is: How the hell does that happen in season 28? Sure, there have been other reality shows that have seemingly lasted forever — The Bachelor, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars — but none can claim to be this good this late in its run. So, what’s in Survivor’s secret sauce? READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': How was Erin Andrews' first season?

Heading into this season of Dancing With the Stars, Erin Andrews was known for being a former contestant and the woman on the sidelines at sporting events. But could she ditch the locker room talk for discussions of hip thrusts — and keep up with Tom Bergeron’s witty one-liners? To keep things short and sweet, I think the answer turned out to be yes.

I wasn’t quite on Team Erin when the season started. In fact, I think I was actively trying not to be. I found some of her jokes annoying; I thought she was awkward at times. But week after week, she wore me down. I started to appreciate the way she’d ask the questions everyone wanted answered. And as time went on, Erin got more comfortable and started firing back at anyone who threw a line her way. She got sarcastic — and suddenly, I approved. READ FULL STORY
