Get ready for 'The Bachelorette'

The last time we saw Ali Fedotowsky, she walked away from "The Bachelor" Jake Pavelka due to work commitments at Facebook.

Now, Fedotowsky has chosen love over work.

The San Francisco native, who finished fourth in the most recent "Bachelor" competition, has quit her job to become the next "Bachelorette." The sixth season of the popular dating show begins May 24 on ABC.

TV Recap: Three weddings and Matt Damon on '30 Rock’

Editor's note: You know how it goes - if you hate spoilers, stop reading now.

Sadly, last night’s “30 Rock” season finale fell a bit flat. As a rule of thumb, sitcoms usually fall short when you take the characters out of their element, and this one definitely did with three weddings in three separate places.

But there were two highlights: Liz may finally have a chance at love and the possibility that we won't have to hear what might be the worst Boston accent in the history of accents next season.

Yep, Jack has ended the love triangle he's been caught in. Nancy, played by Julianne Moore, is sent packing back to Boston after Jack finds out Avery (Elizabeth Banks) is pregnant with his child. This leaves us wondering what kind of father Jack is going to be, and how drastically his character is going to have to change to be a dad. Let’s hope that Jack doesn’t go soft on us.

Shonda Rhimes responds to 'Grey's Anatomy' finale

Editor's note: You know how it goes - if you hate spoilers, stop reading now.

Shonda Rhimes knew what the reaction was going to be to the finale of her show, "Grey's Anatomy." On the "Grey's" writers blog she wrote, "You [all] are shouting, 'Shonda, what do you have to say for yourself? WHAT?'"

It was an intense two hours of television. One that left the audience shaken, angry and, if they were anything like, me, bawling. When the stoic Dr. Bailey cries, you know it's bad times at Seattle Grace.

In the first few minutes, shooter Gary Clark enters the hospital, looking for three people in particular. We've seen this depressed character before - the writers have been teasing this storyline for several episodes. He lost his wife to a surgery done by Richard Webber, and chief-of-surgery Dr. Derek Shepherd made the order to pull the plug. Little Grey, Lexie, did the awful deed.

'Captain America' to be filmed in London?

How’s this for irony: the forthcoming "Captain America" film won’t be shot in America.

Not exactly patriotic, but the comic book icon, who’s superhero costume is made up of the U.S. flag, will be shot overseas instead of in Los Angeles because it’s more economical. Marvel Studios begins shooting “Captain America: The First Avenger,” which stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Hugo Weaving in July in London, where the story is partially set.

But the studio, which was acquired by Walt Disney Co. last year, decided it was easier to do things this way because the story is set in Europe and will feature several scenes in London, but those tax incentives sure sweetened the deal.

Life after '24'...

When it comes to TV, I'm easy going. Color me a casual viewer of a few shows I kind of like, and a devout fan of a few I really love. So, when the news came that my all-time favorite show, "24," was ending, I began to fathom the harsh reality of knowing that the show I loved for eight seasons will be no more. At some point, I'll be "Bauer-less", but where will I go? What will I watch now?

I'm a big fan of shows like HBO's "Entourage", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Eastbound and Down," but they're all between seasons at the moment and otherwise unavailable. I religiously watch HBO dramas "Treme" and "The Pacific," but one is a spring runner, and the other is the dreaded "mini-series"... egad.

After careful consideration, I've decided I need a break from the drama. Jack Bauer has some big shoes to fill, and it requires more time. I'm in a transitional stage, and I think its going to be comedy for a while.

PTC denounces ‘$#*! My Dad Says’

The show hasn’t even premiered yet and the Parents Television Council already doesn’t like it.

Since the network chose to stick with the same expletive used by the Twitter account it's based on, the PTC had no choice but to “denounce” the program, which is slated to air at 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays in the fall.

In a statement, PTC President Tim Winter said that “CBS intentionally chose to insert an expletive into the actual name of a show, and, despite its claim that the word will be bleeped, it is just CBS’ latest demonstration of its contempt for families and the public. There are an infinite number of alternatives that CBS could have chosen but its desire to shock and offend is crystal clear in this decision.” FULL POST
