'Eastbound & Down': Oh my God, they killed Kenny Powers!

The beginning of the end started in Arlington, Texas, with a cameo from Seth Rogen.

Having Rogen as the closer telling women, “What you know about money girl,” and subsequently being hit by a truck was brilliant. It looked like Kenny Powers was going to get the call we’ve been waiting three seasons for him to get.

Meanwhile, KP was sitting at home in Toby’s room, reminiscing. He told the gang that he was ready to move on from the Toby life, saying, “Thank you Christ for allowing all this awesome stuff to happen.” I wake up every morning and start with that prayer.

Courtney Love apologizes to daughter...on Twitter, of course

On the heels of her controversial Twitter posts - which sparked the ire of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and rocker Dave Grohl - Courtney Love serendipitously reunited her band Hole for the first time in 15 years over the weekend.

New York Magazine's Vulture reports that the singer took the stage with the grunge group in Brooklyn, New York, on Friday night. (Video of the performance is at the link.)

The last-minute show, held at Williamsburg's Public Assembly, saw the group’s original lineup - Love, Patty Schemel, Melissa Auf der Maur and Eric Erlandson - take the stage for two songs. It was the band’s first time playing together since 1999.

A 'Firefly' reunion on 'Castle'

When Adam Baldwin showed up to film his guest appearance for Monday night's episode of "Castle," he felt like he was going back home.

"It was like putting on an old comfortable brown coat or worn boots," Baldwin told CNN.

That "brown coat" reference is purposeful. Not only are fans of Baldwin's – and "Castle" star Nathan Fillion's – much beloved, short-lived show "Firefly" called "browncoats," there is also a scene where Baldwin's roguish character, detective Ethan Slaughter, makes off with Castle's brown coat.

'Mad Men' delivers a knockout punch

[The following post contains spoilers for the April 15 episode of AMC’s "Mad Men."]

Sunday's show opened with a screening of the old drivers ed chestnut, “Blood Runs Red on the Highway,” and it could not have been more fitting for Pete, who had a rough go of it in this episode.

On his quest to obtain a driver’s license, he attempted to woo Jenny, a high school student (ew) in his class. The flirting was coming along creepily until a chiseled meat tower nicknamed "Handsome" (a play on “Hanson,” get it?) swooped in and usurped Pete as Jenny's crush of choice.

Elsewhere, Peggy ran into Ken during her lunch break and he was cryptic about his reason for being at the diner. He later confided that he’d met with a literary agent about turning his collection of sci-fi short stories – written under the nom de plume Ben Hargrove – into a book.

Ryan O'Neal battling prostate cancer

Ryan O'Neal is facing a cancer diagnosis once again, but the 70-year-old actor remains optimistic.

As he reveals in a statement to People magazine , O'Neal was "recently diagnosed with stage 2 prostate cancer." While he was "shocked and stunned by the news," he says he still has a reason to feel fortunate.

In a previous statement, O'Neal erroneously said he had been diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer.

"It was detected early, and according to my extraordinary team of doctors, the prognosis is positive for a full recovery," he says in the statement.

'The Killing': The family Michaelski

[The following post contains spoilers for the April 15 episode of AMC’s "The Killing."]

With everything that’s happened in the lives of our characters, it’s hard to believe the Rosie Larsen case is only at day 17.

But if Sunday’s episode was any indication, things are about to pick up: We finally have our first major suspect (or just another red herring) of season 2.

Linden and Holder are back to talking over cases in the car again, and while they went over the contents of Rosie’s bag, Holder mentions he knows a guy who can give it a real examination.
