Matt Dillon and Shelley Long shine on 'Modern Family'

The best episode of "Modern Family" thus far was probably "Fizbo," so you knew that Cam's "needy clown" alter-ego would make another appearance.

On Wednesday night's "Modern Family," Mitchell banned him from appearing at Lily's birthday party, since he would take away the attention from Lily.

Mitchell even implied that Cam was a bad parent: "Well, if the shoe fits..."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Will Lindsay or Charlie turn things around first?

Lindsay was reportedly all set to do David Letterman’s “The Late Show.” Then, oops, she wasn’t! Did her dad have something to do with this?

Plus, Charlie Sheen’s now giving Lindsay advice! Seriously? Charlie… giving Lindsay… advice?!

Here’s what I’d like to know: Who will turn things around first? Lindsay or Charlie? I really think it’s a tough call. Every time either of them takes a step in the right direction we cheer for them, hoping they’re on the right path. And then some new drama unfolds and we lose our faith that they’ll ever turn things around.

Google gets into the 'Spy' game

Before celebrity snark ran rampant on the Internet, there was Spy magazine.

The mag came to an end in 1998, but in an effort to help you relive those memories - or introduce you to the mag if you missed it the first time around - Google has cultivated a digital collection of back issues.

Created in 1986 by authors and editors Kurt Andersen and Graydon Carter along with publisher Tom Phillips, the magazine was far from afraid to cast a humorously critical eye on some of the big personalities of the time. As Carter has explained to CNN, the "rough idea" was "for a magazine that would be about New York, that would be based on journalism, would be funny and look reasonably good." FULL POST

‘Top Chef’ gives us the next Iron Chef

Last week, I laid out my complaints about this All-Stars season of “Top Chef”: The contestants aren’t being challenged enough. It doesn’t feel like we’re getting enough personality. The stakes don’t seem very high.

Problems solved. All of them.

With a hilarious Quickfire and a truly difficult Elimination Challenge, this might have been my favorite episode of the season.

The kids are all right on 'American Idol'

“American Idol” had a total Gleek moment on Wednesday night.

It was group night, the notoriously difficult point in Hollywood week when contestants must come together to work on a song and a little bit of choreography. Nerves are usually frayed, and there are tons of tears as the groups work through the night to hone their performances.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention “The Minors,” a group made up of 15- and 16-year-olds whose mamas were there the whole way, urging, cajoling and at times almost threatening them along the path to tighter harmonies.
