Is Steve Carell planning to exit 'The Office'?

Judging by an interview Steve Carell gave BBC radio while promoting his movie “Date Night,” Carell's run on “The Office” may be coming to an end.

Carell said his contract only runs through next season, the show's seventh. When the interviewer asked if he planned to stay on after that, Carell said “I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.”

Carell’s film career, on the other hand, shows no signs of slowing down. “Date Night,” his action comedy with Tina Fey, has performed fairly at the box office, and he’ll have two films out this summer: the animated feature “Despicable Me” and a comedy co-starring Paul Rudd, “Dinner for Schmucks.”

Would you still watch "The Office" without Michael Scott?

"Gods and Monsters." "Chicago." "Kinsey." "Dreamgirls."

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"?

Yes, the movie version of the Stephenie Meyer novel is the next film on Oscar winner Bill Condon's agenda. Condon, who earned his Academy Award for his "Gods and Monsters" script and helmed "Dreamgirls" - for which Jennifer Hudson picked up a trophy - will direct the fourth film in the "Twilight" saga.

TV recap: 'Glee' brings it 'Home'

I usually reserve my tears for “American Idol” (yes, this season has been that bad), but Tuesday night “Glee” had me bawling.

There was so much emotion packed into the hour, along with the usual hilarious one liners.

From Finn’s distress over his mom moving on years after the death of his dad to Mercedes’ battle with her self image, it was all pretty moving.

The first post-'Tonight' interview with Conan O'Brien goes to ...

CoCo “60 Minutes.”

Conan O’Brien, currently popping up in venues around the country with his “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television” tour, will speak for the first time since he left his post at NBC with correspondent Steve Kroft.

The interview will air Sunday, May 2. When O’Brien departed from NBC in January, he agreed not to conduct any interviews in print or broadcast until May 1, according to The New York Times.

While the show will roll snippets from O’Brien’s tour, it will also focus on his decision to leave NBC rather than push the "Tonight Show” back a half-hour to accommodate for Jay Leno’s return to late night.

Although O’Brien is restricted from criticizing NBC or Leno, Kroft told the Times that O’Brien “flirts” with those restrictions in the interview. Set your DVRs now.

TV recap: Old school 'Parenthood'

It seems like last night’s theme was revisiting the past.  Kristina’s thinking about going back to work, Adam breaks out some old school dance moves and Crosby and Jasmine hit the reset button on their relationship.

Crosby is spending time with Jasmine and their son.  I suppose now that she’s gotten the pesky “Hey, guess what, you’ve got a son I didn’t tell you about, I kept you from him for five years and I alienated you from my family in the process” business behind them, everything is cool.  Crosby decides he wants to get to know her better and asks her on a date.  There’s a bonding scene with Jasmine, Crosby and Jabbar that in my opinion would have been much cuter had it not taken place in the bathroom.  (So glad there were no sound effects!) But they are bonding.  And Crosby and Jasmine do some overnight bonding of their own.

Drew finally gets a little something to do in an episode.  He’s crushing on a classmate and he’s planning to go to a school dance. Drew goes to good old Uncle Adam looking for dance lessons, and finds a few problems. FULL POST

If you ever thought the stars of MTV’s “The Hills” act pretty immature, you aren’t the only ones.

In honor of the show’s final season, the website Babelgum.com has released a video of children acting out scenes from the show.

Tiny versions of Audrina, Heidi, Lauren and the gang quip memorable phrases such as “Oh my God” and “Are you going to Brody’s party?”
