Nine scenes from 'Sex and the City 2' appear online

Once upon a time, a popular HBO series filmed three alternate endings just to keep the rumor mill from churning. Today, the franchise’s second film is just two weeks away from the box office and the rumor mill is no longer needed.

Nine scenes from “Sex and the City 2” recently showed up online, leaving little to the imagination.

But is an exotic vacation or an ex-boyfriend enough to surpass the more than $55 million “Sex and the City” brought in during its first weekend at the box office in May 2008?

Adam Lambert likes Bowersox for the 'Idol' win

Guess who Adam Lambert thinks is going to win “American Idol” this season?

Looks like last season’s runner-up is Team MamaSox all the way.

Lambert told he’d like to see Crystal “MamaSox” Bowersox for the win next week during the finale.

“I think Crystal is great,” Lambert told when asked who he’d love to see win this season.  “I love her anti-establishment attitude.”

Lambert was a favorite to win last season, but ultimately came in a surprising second to winner Kris Allen. During their season, Lambert was very much considered the “anti-establishment” contestant with his guy-liner and flashy performances.

Bowersox is the only female left in the competition and has been a favorite of both fans and the judges for most of the season.

Charlie Sheen is staying with 'Two and a Half Men'

After weeks of reports claiming that Charlie Sheen was ready to move on from CBS’ “Two and a Half Men" at the end of this season, it looks like the actor has had a change of heart. Sheen signed a new contract for the show yesterday.

"To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I'm looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights,” Sheen's rep, Stan Rosenfield, told CNN in a statement on behalf of the actor.

The speculation began in April with reports that Sheen wanted out of the hit series, which has been on CBS for seven seasons. Rosenfield confirmed to CNN that the actor did tell friends he was ready to make an exit, adding that Sheen’s contract with Warner Bros. was up this year although CBS has contracted the show for at least two more seasons.

TV Recap: One down, one to go on '24'

Spoiler alert! You know the drill... if you haven't seen this week's episode of "24," don't read this post.

"24": Day 8 - 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Wow! Welcome back Bauerites. I think its beginning to hit me. Slowly, but surely, it's sinking in. The end is indeed near and for every episode that goes by, it means we are closer to the conclusion of our beloved "24." One down, one to go.

After last week's thrilling episode, I was really dialed in to the previews for this week's show. Then again, as that high-speed thrill adventure ended, I also knew Jack's revenge-soaked campaign would continue in full force, and President Logan was in the on-deck circle.

As characters go, the depth of my dislike for President Logan could best be described as "the size of Nebraska." Logan is highly unlikable, and as we discussed in past blogs, Gregory Itzin is doing an outstanding job in this role. The proof? Itzin racks up solid performances in scene after scene with his underhanded, smarmy badness. Its been a delight to watch his (A) slimy brand of persuasion, and (B) the speedy arrival of his impending doom. More on that later. FULL POST
