Tonight’s guests include actor Mark Ruffalo, Fran Lebowitz, and national security expert Gen. Michael Hayden.

Given contemporary sensibilities, he might have first made the scene today as “Plus-Sized” Domino. But Antoine “Fats” Domino, Jr. embraced his nickname from the start and has never tried to shed it with any Weight Watchers commercials...

Last night, the majority of the finalists for this final year of Idol were revealed. Tonight, the final two join the stage – and then the Top 10 immediately take the stage, one at a time, to compete for votes from viewers.

This is the third episode of this new Craig Ferguson talk and comedy show – and finally, I was able to catch up and see the first two episodes, which premiered last week in a double header. The premise is to choose a topic from history, present six “qualifiers” for that topic – worst medical advice or political blunder, for example – then winnow them down, one by one, until you have a weekly winner. This new show retains Shadoe Stevens from Ferguson’s Late Lat

The winnowing continues, and the first eight semifinalists are announced, in this slow but steady march to March, and the end of the final American Idol season. And tonight and tomorrow, the Idol who started it all returns, as a guest judge and to perform: Kelly Clarkson.
