Hollywood veterans sign on to 'The Event'

You may not know the name Bill Smitrovich, but you're probably familiar with his work: He's been in 89 movies and TV shows since 1982, according to IMDB. He's probably best known as the father from the series "Life Goes On," and playing military figures in the hit movies "Independence Day" and "Air Force One."

He's also gotten quite the promotion on NBC's conspiracy thriller series "The Event," playing the vice president to Blair Underwood's President Martinez. On Monday night's episode, he told reporters in a conference call, we find out a lot more about Vice President Jarvis.

"It’s always nice to have your character be revealed in some way, and the depth of that character, because of this episode, will be revealed as well," he said. "But it also sets up great conflicts - inner conflicts - for this character. There are a lot of monsters out there who wear cuff links and get millions of dollars a year and I happen to get caught up in this cesspool of promises from those kinds of people."

'Sarah Palin's Alaska' draws big ratings

Almost 5 million viewers tuned in to the Sunday night premiere of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

TLC announced that the début episode of the new show drew 4.96 million total viewers, making it the No. 1 program launch in TLC history among households, besting the “What Not to Wear” series launch in 2003. The new show features a glimpse into Palin’s life in her home state and is scheduled to initially run for eight weeks.

While "Palin's" ratings were big, last year's break-up announcement on TLC's “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” continues to reign as one of the network’s biggest draws to date, with more than 10 million viewers.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Do you feel sorry for Rachel Uchitel?

Alleged Tiger Woods mistress number one, Rachel Uchitel, is finally breaking her silence today: She's now admitting to having an affair with Tiger Woods. Uchitel told the U.K.’s Daily Mail that she wants people to know who she really is.

In the interview, Rachel reveals that she regrets sleeping with Tiger, saying “I will never, ever do that again.” Apparently, Uchitel threw herself into a slew of bad relationships after she lost her fiancé in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and says her search for a perfect man evolved into a “love addiction” akin to alcoholism or a drug addiction.

So I have to ask, do you feel sorry for Uchitel? Post your comments here.

In the video – which can be viewed at GQ's website – Michele is seen wearing a short skirt and and open shirt while straddling Monteith's shoulders; tearing off her jersey and pulling open Agron's top; making like a naughty teacher in a black blazer, bra and panties; and asking for a book on sex education.
