'Terriers': Hello. Is It Me You’re Looking For?

If you’re not watching “Terriers,” the best new show of the fall, check out my reasons why you should be.

If you are watching, let’s (finally) talk about last night’s episode, “Sins of the Past.” Or as I like to call it, “So That’s How We Got Here.”

Quick check of what we learned last night: how Hank and Britt met; how Hank got kicked off the police force; what led to the end of Hank’s marriage; and how Hank let his old partner, Mark, down. Turns out, it’s all tied around a rape case that happened three years ago.

'Detox' might be the last time you hear Dr. Dre rap

After what appeared to be a musical self-exile, Dr. Dre is back to releasing original material: The music legend has released “Kush” on iTunes.

The Snoop Dogg and Akon assisted track is the first official single from Dr. Dre’s long-awaited album, “Detox.” The record was first announced by the good Doctor back in April of 2002, and more than eight years later, the album is set for a first quarter release in 2011.

In excerpts from the cover story for their December/January issue, XXL Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief, Vanessa Satten, gets the 45 year-old to open up about the album and where it stands rights now. Dr. Dre admits that the project almost never saw the light of day.

Tony Parker in sync with wife on divorce

Eva Longoria and her soon-to-be-ex husband, NBA star Tony Parker, agree on at least one thing: They’re both sad about filing for a divorce.

On Thursday afternoon, Parker posted the following on his official Facebook page: “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Eva and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.” (It sounds familiar because it’s the same statement Longoria tweeted Wednesday.)

Parker posted the statement after providing an elusive interview before a Spurs basketball game against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. “This is a difficult time right now for me and Eva," he told reporters according to CNN affiliate KSAT in San Antonio. "Everything else is our private life.”

Paramore and B.o.B. rock out for his birthday

After finally meeting at their 2010 VMA rehearsal in September, "Airplanes" hit makers B.o.B. and Paramore's Hayley Williams have been making surprise guest appearances at each other's shows every chance they get.

In late October, Williams shocked B.o.B. fans at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee (her hometown), with their first off camera performance of "Airplanes."  Next it was in Dublin, Ireland where B.o.B. and Williams rocked the O2 arena. Finally, the duo hit up MTV EMA's in Madrid as guest performers (and Williams displayed her white wing pants).

Then, while performing in London this week, Paramore brought B.o.B. on stage during a performance of their hit "Misery Business" to wish him a happy birthday. Williams then conducted the sold-out crowd of 15,000 in singing happy birthday to B.o.B.
