Madonna stalker in police custody

Madonna is likely breathing a sigh of relief right now: The Los Angeles Police Department tells CNN that Robert Dewey Hoskins, the man who's been convicted of stalking Madge and who escaped from a southern California mental hospital on February 3, has been apprehended.

Police tell CNN that he's now in police custody after being caught in Long Beach, California.

Investigators tell CNN that Hoskins, 54, already served his sentence in the Madonna stalking case and was just receiving treatment at the southern California facility. Detectives told CNN Friday that the facility where Hoskins was being held wasn't secured because he had already served his prison time.

However, the LAPD has a court order for Hoskins to be in a facility receiving mental health treatment until the end of August 2012. Police warned the public in an earlier statement, "Hoskins is highly psychotic when not taking his medication and has very violent tendencies."

'Bachelor' host talks Casey's elimination

Whenever controversy breaks on "The Bachelor" and its spin-offs, chances are that host Chris Harrison will find his way into the middle of it.

It was Harrison who was criticized last summer for his handling of "Bachelorette" contestant Bentley Williams, who admitted on-air that he'd rather do anything else than connect with "Bachelorette" Ashley Hebert, and then walked off the show.

Harrison admits that what happened last summer forced him to take a more proactive role in dealing with now-former "Bachelor" contestant Casey Shteamer.

A merry scumbag Christmas on '30 Rock'

In the spirit of the holiday, NBC gifted us with an hour-long Valentine’s Day episode of  "30 Rock." Everybody at TGS was looking for love in their own strange way.

Liz enjoyed a leisurely morning in bed with Criss, a tube of potato chips and a hilarious video of someone getting injured. (Love, Liz Lemon style!)

Criss convinced her to abandon her League of Women Voters Day plans and celebrate Valentine’s Day with him. But first, they needed a proper dinner table. It was time for the ultimate relationship test: IKEA.
