'Parenthood': Just smile

It's all about taking care of business of one sort or another on "Parenthood" this week.

Crosby and Adam were getting ready to be interviewed about The Luncheonette. Crosby's part of the interview seemed to go very well. When he stepped out to grab one of his guitars, the reporter talked to Adam about how he got involved in the business. He told the story of losing his job and Crosby coming to him with the idea about the studio just when he needed it.

Turns out the reporter found that angle more interesting, and Adam ended up on the cover...with no mention of Crosby.

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Gird your loins, PTC and others who may be offended by this: "Modern Family's" Lily is expected to drop the "F" bomb in next week's episode, appropriately titled "Little Bo Bleep." [EW]
  • Zooey Deschanel and Channing Tatum are the latest to bring their talents to "Saturday Night Live." Tatum will make his "SNL" debut February 4 alongside musical guest Bon Iver.

  • "Desperate Housewives" looks like it will truly end when its final season wraps up this spring, because the creator is shutting down hope for a movie. Marc Cherry said at the TCAs that after eight years, "I think we're done." [HitFix]
  • The ex-wife and widow of the late Robert Kardashian have claimed that Khloe Kardashian isn't the attorney's  biological daughter, and Khloe is not pleased.

I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low… YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are)." [Radar Online/TMZ]

ABC shuffles schedule for spring

ABC shuffles schedule for spring

The good news from ABC's Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday is that "Cougar Town" isn't disappearing, as some fans have feared. (ABC said as much when the Courteney Cox comedy didn't appear on its midseason lineup, assuring fans that it would be back eventually.)

But, those who are anxious for "Cougar Town's" return are going to have to wait and see for a premiere date, because the network still doesn't have one yet.

"The reality is, I think 'Cougar Town' is having one of its best seasons," ABC president Paul Lee told press on Tuesday. "We haven't yet landed on where it's going to go, but it's tentatively in there for March." So expect an actual premiere date "in a couple of weeks," Lee added.

Blue Ivy youngest person to enter Billboard chart

Blue Ivy's parents, Beyonce and Jay-Z, are known for selling out shows and crafting chart-topping albums, so it's not a surprise that the newborn has already set a Billboard chart record of her own.

According to Billboard, since proud dad Jay-Z released his song "Glory" on Monday, it's already entered the R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart at No. 74.

And since four-day-old baby Blue drops a guest verse of cries following her delivery on January 7, and is credited for her contribution as "B.I.C.," the newborn is now the youngest person ever to land on a Billboard chart.

How'd Laura Prepon prep for 'Chelsea?' With vodka, of course

How'd Laura Prepon prep for 'Chelsea?' With vodka, of course

NBC's adaptation of Chelsea Handler's best-selling books may not have "vodka" in its title, but Handler made sure actress Laura Prepon had plenty of the spirit to go around.

To help Prepon prepare to play her on "Are You There, Chelsea?,"  "I sent her a case of Belvedere to start," Handler explained in a phone call last month.

That case lasted "for about maybe a week and a half," Prepon admitted. "All of my friends, they pre-game at my house, and have drinks before we go out. So that was an awesome gift."

Justin Bieber wants to grow up at his own pace

Justin Bieber's 18th birthday is looming ahead in March, and while he aims to one day be known as more than a teen sensation, he isn't going to start singing from a more adult perspective just yet.

"There are people who try to grow up too fast," the pop star tells V magazine. "They’re 18, so they’re like, I’m not a kid anymore. People need to know I’m not a kid anymore. But at the end of the day, I’m not completely grown-up. I’m still learning."

As a result, it doesn't sound like the Biebs will take the usual "I'm not a teen star anymore" PR route, complete with more risque career moves and photos of the star engaging in, shall we say, more grown-up activities.
