Pauly D steps away from the 'Shore' with new show

On his new show "The Pauly D Project," Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio shows why he's probably one of the only "Jersey Shore" kids who could have a career outside of reality television.

Thursday's premiere of the "Shore" spin-off brought all of the famous catchphrases and flirtatiousness Pauly D's known for, but it also works hard to show the softer side of one of cable TV's most popular alpha males.

We kick things off with an opening theme song that definitely needs some work in my opinion, but I'm also not 16 and can't help but think my younger cousins would love it.

'Twins' sequel 'Triplets' in the works?

Looks like it could be “Twins” for actor Eddie Murphy!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the comedian could soon star in a sequel to the 1988 comedy "Twins," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito - playing their brother from another mother.

Universal and Montecito Pictures are said to be in talks about the follow-up film, "Triplets," which would reportedly recast Schwarzenegger and DeVito as brothers Julius and Vincent, who find out they actually have a third sibling, played by Murphy.

Sheldon meets Spock on 'The Big Bang Theory'

At long last, Sheldon came face-to-face with Leonard Nimoy... sort of.

Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory" saw Sheldon debating whether to open the box for a classic "Star Trek" transporter toy, because doing so would decrease its value.

He was visited in a dream by his Mego Spock action figure, voiced of course, by Nimoy. He urged him to open the box because playing with a toy is only logical.

Friday's Top Five: High school reunions we want to see

High school is the stage upon which many life-long memories, both good and bad, play out - and no one knows this better than Hollywood.

Some of the best movies and TV shows have been set in fictional high school classrooms, whether the intent is to inspire, a la "Stand and Deliver," petrify (for some reason, "The Craft" is coming to mind), invoke sentimentality or light-heartedly mock the truisms of being a teen.

When a TV show or movie gets it right, we tend to become so attached to those characters that we'd happily tune in or plunk down a movie admission fee to see how they turned out after graduation.

Jaleel White responds to ex's abuse allegations

“Dancing with the Stars” competitor Jaleel White has responded to an ex-girlfriend’s claims that he was physically abusive toward her.

The actor - best known for portraying Steve Urkel on “Family Matters” - told E! News in a statement that while he “would love to go detail for detail refuting [Bridget] Hardy's claims about the specifics of what was our relationship,” he can’t: “The family court judge made it very clear to me any public discussion of our case and ordeal would be held against me in a court of law,” he explained.

Hardy, who is the mother of White’s young daughter, told Star magazine recently that White became violent during a 2010 incident when she confronted him about being unfaithful. Police did look into the allegations at the time, but concluded there wasn't enough to warrant the City Attorney's Office to "take a look."

9/11 hero's mom offended by Daly joke

The mother of a 9/11 hero has reportedly taken Carson Daly to task for his gay joke.

"The Voice" host apologized Wednesday for a joke he made that morning on his syndicated radio show regarding the passengers who recently subdued a JetBlue pilot.

"Most of them were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas...it was like a bunch of...well-trained dudes, thank God," Daly said. "With my luck, it would be like, 'This is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco...'Uh, we're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.'"
