Cesar Millan takes his lessons across the globe

Cesar Millan is on a mission way bigger than what he has embraced before.

"'The Dog Whisperer' to me is a show that had a passion, and it helped me save relationships," Millan said. "But that dog already has a house and has a family and everything is beautiful. But then you go outside of America and you realize that [unlike in ] America where 4 to 5 million dogs die every year, around the world 600 million die. So it's a global problem."

The dog behaviorist recently launched "Cesar Millan's Leader of The Pack" series on Nat Geo Wild, in which he travels the world trying to assist "unadoptable" dogs.

Ratings in for Oprah Winfrey's interview with Lance Armstrong

It was hard to ignore the equal opportunity present in Oprah Winfrey's interview with Lance Armstrong, the first part of which aired on OWN Thursday night.

Alicia Keys will sing national anthem at Super Bowl

Alicia Keys has been tapped to sing the national anthem at February's Super Bowl XLVII.

The "Girl on Fire" songstress will belt out the Star Spangled Banner during the pregame festivities at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. As was the case in the past, you'll catch her performance prior to kickoff. (And if we may, Ms. Keys, you might want to brush up on those lyrics - we all still remember what happened with Christina Aguilera.)

Of course, Keys joins a long list of legends who have sung the nation's anthem ahead of the Super Bowl, including Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey and more.

The Super Bowl airs on CBS February 3, with Beyonce performing during the Halftime show.

Michael J. Fox on the idea of his son dating Swift

One of the funnier parts of the Golden Globes, aside from a supposedly drunk Glenn Close, was when Tina Fey called out Taylor Swift and told her to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son, Sam.

It's presumed Fey was joking, and we never did get to see whether Swift was really trying to talk to Sam at the Awards or not. If she was, however, Sam might want to prepare a better introduction for his dad.

Lisa Whelchel joins Tyler Perry movie

After going on her first audition in 33 years, Lisa Whelchel is proud to say she landed the part.

The 49-year-old actress will appear in "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas," her first role since "The Facts of Life Reunion" in 2001.

"I play the role of Nancy Porter, the country school principal," Whelchel told People magazine. "I'm having fun!"

She'd previously mentioned when she exited the last season of "Survivor" that she was open to new opportunities in entertainment.  "I'd host, I'd do a sitcom," she told the magazine of the possibilities in her post-"Survivor" life. "Really, I've got a lot of opportunities."

"Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas" is expected to bow December 13.
