"Coach" Wade Voted Off "Survivor Tocantins"

On yesterday's penultimate installment of "Survivor: Tocantins" Benjamin "Coach" Wade became the twelfth castaway voted out of the game. The episode began with Coach asking JT and Stephen to please not send him to Exile, a request that fell on deaf ears. Later, the final five met Jeff for the Reward Challenge, which had the castaways navigating a maze, building a pole and using a sandbag to knock down three targets. JT crushed the competition and easily won the challenge, earning him an overnight trip to a private retreat. He chose Stephen to go with him and decided to send Coach to Exile. After telling the others he didn't plan on eating while at Exile, Erinn called Coach a martyr causing Coach to shoot back "Hit me with your best shot, Pat Benatar". The next day the tribe reconvened for the Immunity Challenge which consisted of balancing between two walls using only your hands and your feet. Erinn was the first to fall followed by Stephen and then Taj. JT and Coach battled it out until finally Coach dropped giving JT the win. At tribal council only JT stayed true to Coach, while the other three voted him out, making him the fifth member of the jury. Now only four remain, who will outwit, outplay and outlast the others and take home the $1 million? Tune in to Sunday's three hour season finale to find out!

Shawn Johnson finished second with a 56 out of 60, followed by Melissa Rycroft with a 55 out of 60. Ty Murray placed last with a 48 out of 60.

Victor & Tammy Jih Win "Amazing Race 14"

Yesterday, on the season finale of "The Amazing Race 14" sibling lawyers Victor and Tammy Jih crossed the finish line first and won the $1 million grand prize. The episode began with the final three teams flying from Beijing, China to Maui, Hawaii. Once there, they drove to beach access location #118 where they learned they had to season and carry a 145 pound pig 200 yards to a barbecue pit. Victor & Tammy and Cara & Jaime both had trouble transporting the pig, allowing Margie & Luke to take the lead. When the task was completed the teams were instructed to McGregor Point where they got on jet skis and searched through 100 buoys for their next clue. Once they found one, the teams drove to a Hana Highway surf shop where the final Roadblock awaited them. One team member had to search among 300 surfboards for eleven that featured sights they encountered in each leg of the race. Luke chose to do the task and started off strong, lining up the first nine boards correctly. However, he got stuck on the last two giving Victor the chance to catch up and ultimately overtake him. Victor and Tammy then made their way to King Kamehameha golf course where they crossed the finish line and won the race. Jaime & Cara eventually came in second followed by Margie & Luke in third.

Joan Rivers Wins "Celebrity Apprentice 2"

On tonight's 3 hour "Celebrity Apprentice" season finale, comedian Joan Rivers beat poker player Annie Duke and won $250,000 for her charity. The episode began with the final two picking their teams for the last task. Annie chose Brande Roderick, Dennis Rodman & Tom Green, while Joan picked Herschel Walker, Clint Black & Melissa Rivers. Trump then explained that the final task was to create a pre-theater party and silent auction promoting Kodak and the Cirque du Soleil show "Wintuk". On Joan's team, everything was running smoothly until Joan got into an argument with her event planner, causing the design firm to quit on both Joan and Annie. That left the two teams scrambling to find replacements to design the party. Annie ended up calling some designer friends, while Joan's charity came to her rescue. Annie also got lots of people to donate and bid on her items, while celebrities like Kathy Griffin showed up to support Joan. When the party was over the two teams met Donald one last time in the boardroom. He revealed that, unsurprisingly, Annie won in fund raising: $465,725 to Joan's $150,830. She also won in charity integration, but Joan outperformed in the other three criteria: product placement, guest experience & celebrity attendance. We then joined Trump live in New York where he was joined by last season's final two: Piers Morgan and Trace Atkins, who both felt Joan should win. In the end, Trump agreed and crowned Joan the new "Celebrity Apprentice".

Debbie Beebe Voted Off "Survivor Tocantins"

On yesterday's "Survivor: Tocantins" 46 year old principal Debbie Beebe became the eleventh castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Debbie approaching JT and Stephen about possibly turning on Coach and voting him out. The guys contemplated the idea, but also wondered if they should vote Debbie out. Later, the tribe met Jeff for the Survivor Auction. Several contestants won food, but the last item proved to be the most valuable - a video from home. All the castaways gave their money to Taj, who then found out her husband was back at camp. However, Jeff informed Taj that if she and her husband went to Exile, the rest of the tribe would get to see their loved ones too. Taj immediately accepted the offer and made her way to Exile with her husband. Back at camp, the others were greeted by their loved ones - that is if you consider an assistant coach a loved one. After the visitors left, the tribe reconvened for the Immunity Challenge. Each contestant had to maneuver an obstacle course and then memorize ten arithmetic symbols to complete a math equation. JT jumped to an early lead, but Stephen was able to overtake him by memorizing all ten symbols on his first try, earning him immunity. At tribal council the alliance of Taj, JT, Stephen and Erinn decided to keep Coach and instead vote out Debbie, who became the fourth member of the jury. Now only five contestants remain, who will be the next to go?

Allison Iraheta Voted Off "American Idol"

On tonight's "American Idol" results show, Allison Iraheta became the tenth finalist voted off the show. Yesterday the remaining four singers performed rock songs and were mentored by Slash. The judge's loved Adam but weren't too crazy about anyone else. The contestants also paired up and did duets - Alison sang with Adam while Kris sang with Danny. After the viewers voted, Ryan revealed the fate of each finalist one by one. He first sent Kris to safety followed by Adam and then Danny. Thus, Allison had received the least amount of votes and was eliminated. Next week the final three perform two songs - a judge's choice and a contestant's choice. There will also be performances by Jordin Sparks and Katy Perry. Which guys will make it to the final two? Tune in next week to find out!

However, when the viewer votes were added the bottom two switched places and it was Lil Kim who was sent home. Now only four stars remain, who won't make it to the finals?

"Sisters" LaKisha and Jennifer Hoffman Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 14"

On yesterday's "Amazing Race 14" sisters LaKisha and Jennifer Hoffman became the eighth team eliminated from the show. The episode began where last week left off - with Phil giving all four teams a new clue which instructed them to a street mall where they had to search for a Travelocity roaming gnome. Once they found a gnome, they were told to board motorized bicycles and ride across Tianimann Square to the Dongdan subway station where a Detour awaited them. The choice was between painting each others faces like Chinese characters or taking the orders of a table of Mandarin speaking diners. Victor and Tammy, who speak Mandarin, were the only team to choose the waiter task. When they completed it, they were confronted by the second and final U-Turn of the season. Victor and Tammy decided to use the U-Turn on LaKisha and Jennifer which forced the sisters to complete both Detour tasks. Next up the teams traveled to a street market where they found a Roadblock. One team member had to eat a full plate of Chinese delicacies - grasshoppers, beetle larvae, scorpion and starfish. Victor and Tammy finished first and made their way to the Pit Stop, the "Eagle's Nest" Olympic stadium. When they arrived they were awarded with a trip for two to the Galapagos Islands. LaKisha & Jennifer and Cara & Jaime were neck and neck at the Roadblock, but a stop to pee by Jennifer caused the cheerleaders to take the lead. Thus, LaKisha and Jen arrived last and were eliminated. Next week the final three teams race for the Finish Line on the season finale! Which pair will take home the $1 million? Tune in Sunday at 8pm to find out!

Clint Black, Brande Roderick & Jesse James All Fired from "Celebrity Apprentice 2"

On tonight's penultimate episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" Donald Trump fired Clint Black, Brande Roderick and Jesse James. The show started with the contestants waiting to see if Joan Rivers would return for the upcoming task. Luckily, she did and the teams were given their next challenge. They were instructed to create a new jingle and 30 second radio ad for Chicken of the Sea tuna. Unsurprisingly, Clint was picked as project manager for KOTU, while Annie stepped up on Athena. Even though they were down one person and competing against a Grammy winner, Annie and Brande worked hard on both the jingle and the commercial. Over on KOTU, Clint took complete control and rarely listened to Joan or Jesse. After both teams gave their presentations, the Chicken of the Sea execs picked a winner. In the boardroom Donald announced that, shockingly, Athena won. On KOTU, Trump had no choice but to fire project manager Clint. But the night wasn't over yet, as the final four were called back into the boardroom where they were told they would be interviewed by season one winner Piers Morgan. Piers grilled all the contestants and asked them why they felt they belonged in the final two. Back in the boardroom Trump heeded Piers' advice and fired Brande and Jesse. Next week the final two, Joan and Annie, battle it out in the 3 hour season finale! Who will be crowned the new "Celebrity Apprentice"? Tune in Sunday at 8pm to find out!

Sierra Reed Voted Off "Survivor Tocantins"

On yesterday's "Survivor Tocantins" 23 year old model Sierra Reed became the tenth castaway voted out of the game. The episode began with Stephen and JT explaining to Coach and Debbie why they voted Tyson out and didn't tell them. While they were wary at first, eventually they accepted it probably because they had no other option. Later, the castaways met Jeff for the Reward Challenge which had the survivors answering questions about their fellow tribemates based on what they thought the group consensus would be. Each correct answer would allow them to chop one of their opponent's three ropes. Stephen lasted the longest and was awarded with a home cooked meal from a local family and a trip to a hot spring. He chose Taj and JT to come with him and sent Erinn to Exile. Back at camp, Coach and Debbie approached Sierra about reforming the Timbira alliance but Sierra wanted no part of it. When the others returned from their reward Coach twisted the story and made it sound like Sierra approached him about starting an alliance. The next day the tribe competed in the Immunity Challenge which consisted of using grappling hooks to retrieve three bags and then navigating a ball through a large table maze. Coach won both rounds earning him his first individual immunity. At tribal council Stephen and JT stuck with the original plan and voted Sierra out, making her the third member of the jury. Now only six castaways remain, who will be eliminated next?

Matt Giraud Voted Off "American Idol"

This week nothing could save Matt Giraud, as he became the latest contestant voted off "American Idol". On Tuesday the remaining five singers performed Rat Pack songs and were mentored by Jamie Foxx. For the most part, the judges liked everyone and didn't have too much criticism. Yesterday, on the results show the bottom three was revealed to be Matt, Kris and Adam which came as a shock to everyone, including the judges. Ultimately, it was Matt who received the least amount of votes and therefore was eliminated. Next week's theme is rock music and will feature Slash from Guns N' Roses as the mentor, as well as performances by Daughtry and No Doubt. With only four contestants left, it's now anybody's game.
