From LA Examiner: 'The Voice' Returns to LA; 'Community' Cross Over With 'Chuck'; Rob Huebel Reminisces Over 'Childrens Hospital'; 'Castle' Photos...

"The Voice kicks off season two with auditions in Los Angeles"

The Voice has been traveling all around the country this summer, first with the semi-finalists from the first season hitting select cities on their first ever musical concert tour, and then with season two audition stops from coast to coast. But let's face it: season two really didn't feel like it was officially beginning until they touched back down on southland soil, hitting Los Angeles' own The Forum for two days of non-stop crooning...

"Nerds rejoice! A Community and Chuck cross-over coming to NBC!"

Last season on Community Abed (Danny Pudi) took his love of all things pop culture a step farther than most.

We didn't want to let the finale pass without acknowledging the brilliance that came out in this season's episodes-- from the old-timey play the gang put on to the undercover work in a children's psych ward, to the adult bar mitzvah and the fact that Valerie revealed herself to really be a man last season but still carried on this year as herself, as if nothing had happened. So we caught up with Rob Huebel to reminisce a bit, but also to look ahead to what's to come next year... [MORE]

"Castle's season four premiere sees Beckett back on her feet + return of Josh!"

Sometimes a show you love and are eagerly anticipating returning with brand new episodes remains a mystery almost up until its return date. Thankfully, though, Castle is not one of those shows! ... [MORE]
