Beloved 'Jersey Shore' star and reality show personality, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino recently found himself in a bit of a pickle, when he was indicted for tax evasion. As it so happens, Sorrentino's nickname is not "The Pickle" (though, that would be awesome), but "The Situation," which applies just as well to the occasion at hand -- at least, that's what everyone who works in television news who covered the story seems to think.

Beloved (but also maligned) series 'LOST' turned 10 last night -- in TV time, that means last night marked with 10th anniversary of its very first show -- and Jimmy Kimmel took the opportunity to check in with one of the show's original stars: Walt!
The rules of Jimmy Kimmel's 'Name That Famous Celebrity' are simple: celebrity spotter Yehya describes famous stars to a pair of, well, other famous stars, who then must determine who the heck Yehya is talking about while wearing blind folds. It's a game of skill and quickness and probably a little bit of intuition.
Most people who have a hit show, indie accolades, and scads of awards and nominations before the age of thirty would probably take the time to attend their high school reunion and check in with everyone else they attended school with. Do you have a hit show, guy from English class? You, the girl who was mean to me in P.E., were you nominated for an Emmy? But Lena Dunham isn't like that, and the star and creator of 'Girls' didn't even both to attend her own high school reunion.
Like anyone who lived through the '90s, Jimmy Kimmel loved 'Friends,' but while being a fan of the television staple is wholly understandable, the depth of his affection is, well, perhaps not. Kimmel hosted 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston on his show last night, and while she might have expected to chat about her latest movie, 'Life of Crime,' and share some fun tidbits and anecdotes, the host had other ideas.
If you've ever seen the press room at a major awards show, you know how strange and dizzying an experience it must be for the winners -- just a lot of people screaming questions at them while they clutch their new award and try to process the whole thing -- but we've finally found something much, much more bizarre.
LeVar Burton's beloved 'Reading Rainbow' may be coming back to us -- and soon, thanks to a very profitable Kickstarter campaign -- but that doesn't mean it's going to look exactly like it did in its first incarnation. And that's okay! Turns out, Burton is hip to the changing media landscape (again, he used Kickstarter to fund the new show), and that includes social media, especially Twitter.
Actress Eva Green has never balked at a nude scene -- her very first film, 'The Dreamers,' even featured some shots of her in the buff, and she'll next be mainly nude for 'Sin City 2.' The actress is comfortable with this stuff, and understands when it's important and essential to a part. But that doesn't mean that her family, especially her dad, is onboard with this particular facet of her career.
Daniel Radcliffe hit up Comic-Con this past weekend to promote his new film, 'Horns,' but the 'Harry Potter' star was determined to have some fun away from the glare of the spotlight. Fortunately, the charming star was in the right place for that, and he did it quite handily...by dressing up as Spider-man. Where else can a full-grown man dress up as a superhero and not get a second glance? Point to Radcliffe.
Ah, yes, the hard-hitting questions with Jimmy Kimmel! The late-night host sent some of his crack 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' team down to San Diego for Comic-Con 2014 to get a real sense of the costumed crowd, including asking them the tough questions. You know what he asked? You want to know, too, don't you? Don't be shy. Don't play coy.
