'Touch' leaves us wanting more

Back in January, when Fox aired the pilot for "Touch," I was quite impressed with the show's ambition. It's truly unlike anything else on TV.

Thursday night's episode seemed to serve as a second pilot. (The actual pilot has been widely available online and elsewhere since January, since Fox really wants this show to take off).

And once again, we see that Martin's son Jake - who narrates the show but never speaks - obsesses over numbers, this time the number 5296.

New season of 'Shore' touts 'fist pumps, baby bumps'

There was a whole lot of bleeping, bickering and blaming on Thursday night's "Jersey Shore: The Reunion."

It was reminiscent of the Seaside Heights-set reality show, to say the least.

At one point, The Situation - who recently made headlines when he confirmed he's seeking treatment for a "prescription medication problem" - dramatically walked off set. The reality star, whose real name is Mike Sorrentino, needed some fresh air after a heated argument with Snooki.

'Community' and the exploding ego

After last week's big ratings gain for "Community," the show really seems to be hitting its stride.

Thursday night's episode was an improvement on last week – and, since it centered on Abed, there was plenty of weirdness to go around.

When the owner of a celebrity impersonator service (a man who looks remarkably like French Stewart) came to collect on Abed's debts – due to Abed's obsession with re-enacting famous movie scenes – the group agreed to appear at a bar mitzvah in the guise of celebrities.

Avoiding 'Hunger Games' hysteria? May the odds be ever in your favor

You may not be aware, but a little independent film called "Hunger Games" was released today.

We kid, because seriously how could you not know that the movie, which some say might eclipse the 'Twilight' frenzy, has arrived? Tons of tweets, articles and anticipation by fans proceeded the release of the tale of Katniss Everdeen's fight for survival during the televised fight-to-the-death known as the Hunger Games.

Based on the young adult book series by Suzanne Collins, the film was selling tickets like crazy before the first midnight screenings early on Friday morning. Book sales increased both online and at brick-and-mortar establishments, like the Soho Scholastic store which, according to the New York Daily News, was enjoying a frenzy of fans picking up the novels (published by Scholastic.)

Friday Top Five: Survival stories

One might argue that “The Hunger Games” is the most eagerly anticipated adaptation since “Twilight” or “Harry Potter.”

The film, based off Suzanne Collins' young adult novel, is set in a post-apocalyptic society where 12- to 18-year olds are forced into a televised battle to the death. An original plot, for sure, but the survival theme certainly isn't new to cinema.

Many movies pit protagonists against one another, the forces of nature or government agencies. But whether the story is based on fact or fiction, the main character often has to struggle to survive. Here are some of our favorite survival stories:
