‘So You Think You Can Dance’: No Uglies

After listening yet again to producer Nigel Lythgoe’s incessant talk of personal growth and the journey, we’ve begun to suspect that Oprah is a silent backer of this series.

‘So You Think You Can Dance’: Down With Tyce D'Orio!

As the producers prodded the dancers to reveal the complex psyches behind their personas, we learned such scintillating facts as Lauren likes to pretend she’s Asian and Dominic thinks every foreign accent is French. Maybe this is the show’s way of reminding us that you can dislike the artist but still like the art.

The ‘Entourage’ Guilt/Pleasure Index: All That and a Bag of Dildos

Our DVR summary of tonight's episode read, "Ari mishandles a secret script." What? Ari? Who's that? Wait, now we remember him — he's the short one who shouts a lot and jerks around like he's been shot by a Taser. Yes, after several painfully dry weeks, Hurricane Ari returned last night in full force!

‘Hidden Palms,’ We Hardly Knew Ya

In the last ever episode of Hidden Palms, we finally learn who killed Eddie — a heretofore unsolved mystery that had very few viewers on the edge of their seats. The CW managed to pack about eight episodes' worth of material into the hasty wrap-up of the doomed teen soap. Here's how it all shook out.

Remember how Vince selling his house and shuffling everyone out into the streets was going to shake up the foundations of this show? Yeah, not so much. It's business as usual as the boys crowd into Drama's condo and resume their familiar antics: Drama blusters, Turtle smirks, E frets, and Vince does whatever it is that defines his character, along with occasionally batting his eyelashes. No wonder this is the one show we can't stop watching–slash–can't stop hating ourselves for watching!

‘So You Think You Can Dance’: Jessi Should Have Stayed In the ICU

After that dreadful Lion King ripoff at the beginning of last night's So You Think You Can Dance, we Googled choreographer Tyce D’Orio to see what relevant credits, if any, he has to qualify him for creating “Broadway-style” routines. We found Tyce had a single credit on the Great White Way: He was an associate choreographer on the flop Beach Boys musical Good Vibrations. Enough said.

‘Hidden Palms’: Eddie's Mom Has Got It Going On

Lots of stuff happened during the two fun-filled hours of last night's Hidden Palms, though in the end, things aren't any clearer than when this "whole night event!" started. Can't wait for next week's series finale, when we'll finally learn who really killed Eddie. And we care. No, really, we do.
