What does Bravo have cooking for 2011?

With four new series and brand new seasons of guilty pleasures like “The Rachel Zoe Project” and “The Real Housewives," Bravo is gearing up for one entertaining year.

Jewel and former “Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi will star in “Platinum Hit,” a new competition reality show featuring 12 aspiring songwriters. The series, to premiere summer 2011, will test the contestants' “creativity, patience and drive,” according to the network.

Reality programs “Million Dollar Decorators" (about L.A.-based interior designers with lavish budgets) “Pregnant in Heels” (which follows a Manhattan-based maternity concierge as she attends to her upscale clientele) and “Rocco’s Dinner Party” (on which chefs will compete to impress Rocco DiSpirito and his famous friends with the "ultimate dinner party") are also new to Bravo’s lineup.

Take a look at Andrew Garfield as 'Spider-Man'

Andrew Garfield did a lot of yoga and pilates to get into that Spidey suit, and now Sony Pictures has unveiled a first look at how Garfield’s efforts paid off.

For the 27-year-old British actor, who began shooting “Spider-Man” back in December, donning the iconic costume is nothing short of a dream come true.

"I feel like a kid in my pajamas," Garfield told the U.K.’s Guardian at the time. "I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized. I don't take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next few months."

Mitchell's past comes back on 'Modern Family'

Mitchell's past comes back on 'Modern Family'

Kudos to "Modern Family" for keeping us guessing. On Wednesday night's episode, not only was it revealed that Mitchell had a momentary, eight-year-old fling with ex-girlfriend Tracy, but he suspected the short red-headed person she was speaking to was their son!

Cam's response earned him this week's MVP status, starting off with "Mmm, mm hmm," followed by this instant classic: "Mitchell, I need to have my reaction."

That reaction manifested itself with, "You don't just tell your partner you may have a baby with someone else and expect them to go back to eating a delicious and inventive meal like it's nothing!"

Rooney Mara goes goth for 'Dragon Tattoo' role

“Dragon Tattoo” fans, David Fincher is ready to take you for a ride.

According to W magazine, which spoke with the crew tackling the Stieg Larsson best-seller and features photos of transformed “Tattoo” lead Rooney Mara, the script deviates a fair amount from the book.

Investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (played by Daniel Craig) “is less promiscuous,” the magazine reports, while the pierced-and-tattooed computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Mara) “is more aggressive.”

'Top Chef': One dish, two dish, who cooked blue fish?

'Top Chef': One dish, two dish, who cooked blue fish?

Psychological strategy; justifiable eliminations; a rare glimpse of camaraderie among contestants? Now THAT’S an episode I can get excited about!

After my complaints last week about the All-Star format failing to live up to expectations, this week I saw things from a completely different angle (oh yeah, that’s a pun on the fishing theme of the episode; expect more).

There was no quickfire challenge this week; we waded immediately into the elimination challenge. The chefs had five hours to catch their own fish and then two hours to cook them for a beach party. This was done in teams of three. (I am VERY ready for the team challenges to be over, as are some of the contestants.)
