Mourning the end of 'Glee'

I have such mixed emotions about “Glee.”

Tuesday night is the season finale, and while I am super excited to finally be reaching the Regionals and for Quinn to hopefully get that baby out of her belly, I still have to deal with the fact that this is the end of the first season.

It was such a good one, though I could have done without the super long break between the initial episodes and the final ones. But what a way to go out, with what I suspect will be a battle royale between New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline!

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Plea deals, sex tapes and Snooki

Happy Tuesday! There's so much to discuss, so let’s just do this:

The big news today is about Charlie Sheen – apparently that plea deal involving Sheen working with a theater group by day and sleeping in a jail cell at night fell through. (Hmm...we wonder why? Maybe because it wasn't such a bright idea in the first place?)

So now Sheen and his legal team must return to court in July, but what does that mean for his show, “Two and A Half Men”? Will they delay shooting the new season to accommodate Charlie? "Showbiz Tonight" will be hunting down the answers to that hot topic!

'Kate Plus 8' gets solid ratings

Katie G.’s still got it.

The mom of eight had stiff competition on Sunday, between the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Celtics game, the Stanley Cup finals and the MTV Movie Awards, (and, um, the premiere of “The Next Food Network Star”; I couldn’t have been the only one with that scheduling conflict) but TLC’s back-to-back “Kate Plus 8” specials weren’t hurting for viewers.

While EW’s Ken Tucker thinks the two hours of Gosselin family fun could have just as aptly been titled, “The Horror, The Horror,” 3.4 million tuned in for the first 60 minutes, featuring the sextuplets' sixth birthday, while 3 million were watching for the second hour-long special, “Inside Kate’s World," according to EW.

The next "Kate Plus 8" special will air July 11.

MTV apologizes for Movie Awards profanity

MTV awards shows have never had a reputation for clean language. But as critics have pointed out, Sunday night’s Movie Awards was more profane than usual.

According to THR, one reviewer caught over 100 swear words for the two-hour ceremony, with only some of them caught by the censors. It was so noticeable that "Twilight" star Peter Facinelli started his acceptance speech for the Best Movie award on behalf of the "New Moon" cast by saying, "I've never heard the word [expletive] used so many times in one evening," before proceeding to use the curse word as often as possible (except when thanking Stephenie Meyer, because she's Mormon).

As a result, the network has issued a statement of apology, “to those in our audience who were offended by any objectionable words that might have slipped by for the live airing.”

'The Bachelorette': The contestant who has two faces

Last night on “The Bachelorette,” Chris told the 14 remaining contestants that, for a second week, there will be one group date and two individual dates.

Roberto got the first individual date, and Ali put on her best “Flashdance” blouse for the occasion. Ali, who reminded us once again that she’s afraid of flying, took Roberto on a helicopter ride to the top of a random skyscraper. The two had dinner plans, but since it was located on top of a neighboring skyscraper, they had to walk across a tightrope to get there.

As Ali and Roberto kiss on the tightrope from about 20 stories up, Ali said she’s never had a first kiss like that before - true, most people don’t kiss on tightropes. After changing into dress clothes (where’d the extra clothes come from?) and having dinner, Ali, who appeared to be exposing her bra strap, gave Roberto a rose, so he’s safe.
