Amazing Race's Kent and Vyxsin: The Globetrotters Were "Very Appalling"

A 30-minute penalty for taking a cab to the Pit Stop instead of going by foot doomed Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business , but the real drama came at the Roadblock when the Globetrotters accused Vyxsin of stealing Flight Time's gnome mold. "I didn't take it," Vyxsin tells TVGuide.com. "It was pretty clear on the episode the way they showed it when I put mine on the bottom shelf. I talked to the chocolate teachers and everybody said, 'No, of course, you didn't take it.'" Of course, that wasn't enough to stop the Globetrotters from taunting the Goths — behavior Kent dubs "pretty disgusting." See what else they have to say about the Globetrotters and which team should not be underestimated. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Kent-Vyxsin-1032603.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Top Moments: Office's Fond Farewell, Vampire Diaries Shockers and a Cheesy Race

13. Kiss and Don't Tell Award:  After  American Idol  woman scorned Pia Toscano sings her anthem "I'll Stand By You" on  Dancing with the Stars  (her all-but-confirmed beau Mark Ballas' show), Tom Bergeron gets right to the point: "Is he a good kisser?" Coy as ever, Toscano laughs it off and replies, "He's a wonderful person." We'll take that as a yes. But seriously, enough with the cageyness. It's really wearing on your 15 minutes. 12. Most Cringeworthy:  At first, Paul Reiserseems like a good sport for showing up for his The Tonight Show with Jay Leno  appearance even though his NBC sitcom was canceled last week. But naturally, the comedian wasn't going to let the awkward sitdown pass without lobbing a few grenades. "NBC, to my knowledge, they don't traditionally make bad decisions," he tells Leno. "I don't know what your experience is..." And then: "When you're the last-place network, you don't want to jeopardize that. You found your niche; stay there."

The Amazing Race: Cheaters Never Prosper...Or Do They?

Whenever I watch an episode of The Amazing Race, my emotions tend to stay within a certain level. I may be impressed by the various countries they go to, anxious to see which team will win a footrace to the pit stop, or touched that a team learned so much about their connection in such a short amount of time, but I tend to walk out of every episode of The Amazing Race feeling pretty okay. Not this time.

Amazing Race's Jet and Cord: It Would've Been "Really Cool" If Someone Told Us the Answer

They survived back-to-back close-call legs, but cowboys/brothers Jet and Cord McCoy couldn't make another comeback on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business Sunday. After Jet was the only Racer to redo the Roadblock of measuring the length of Liechtenstein — and was left out of the answer sharing circle — the fan favorites had their fates sealed when they were U-Turned by the Globetrotters in Zermatt, Switzerland. Still, the self-proclaimed "lone rangers" don't think their independent style of racing hurt them in a leg where so many teams worked together. "If we had an alliance with the Globetrotters, I think in the same situation, they would've done exactly what they did," Jet tells TVGuide.com. "An alliance might give you that warm, fuzzy feeling, but I don't know if it's going to save you." See what else the Season 16 alums have to say about their exit, if they would've used the U-Turn and why Gary rocks. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Jet-Cord-1032262.aspx?rss=breakingnews

TV Ratings: 'Beyond the Blackboard' CBS movie helps secure win on Easter

Fast national ratings for Sunday, April 24, 2011.Easter Sunday signaled a win for CBS, with ratings up slightly across the board from last Sunday. "Beyond the Blackboard," CBS's TV movie starring Emily Van Camp, aired opposite her old stomping ground, "Brothers & Sisters" on CBS. FOX made it a very Homer Easter with two episodes of "The Simpsons" and a re-air of the movie, but they didn't make much of a ratings splash. NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" was up slightly from last week, but their latest endeavor "America's Next Great Restaurant" hit its series low.CBS had the highest average viewers (9.1 million and a 5.6/10 share). ABC came in second (7.7 million, 4.6/8), NBC in third (6.0 million, 3.6/6) and FOX in fourth (3.1 million, 1.7/3). ABC won the 18-49 demo with a 2.2 rating, followed by NBC (2.0) and CBS (1.7). FOX had a 1.2. Sunday hour by hour: 7 p.m. CBS: "60 Minutes" (10.3... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/tv-ratings-beyond-the-blackboard-cbs-movie-helps-secure-win-on-easter.html

Top Moments: Dancing's Sex on a Stick and a Surprise 30 Rock Cameo

Our top moments of the week: 12. Best Freudian Slip:  On  The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business , Flight Time has a Freudian slip — literally — as he falls flat on his butt while transporting Sigmund Freud's couch to the University of Vienna. But we think the meaning was lost on him altogether since he describes the psychoanalyst as such: "He used to have dreams about sleeping with his mama and all that kind of crazy stuff." 11. Worst Scapegoat:  Phillip asks Steve if the two divided parts of the tribe can share one rice can on  Survivor: Redemption Island , but Steve declines. Their disagreement escalates quickly, culminating in Steve calling Phillip a "lunatic." Rather than walk away, Phillip turns the fight into a race war and says that "anytime somebody of my color" starts a fight, the person is a lunatic. Yes, Phillip, that's it -- it's not because of your CIA ramblings, your tiny pink briefs or the feather on your head that you claim came out of thin air.
