What's more, from 2002 to 2009, the U.S. Open will have been played in the New York area four times.

"Glee" fans may appreciate the special tribute to the late star Cory Monteith at the Emmys on Sunday, but at least one group isn't so happy. That would be the family of Jack Klugman, the actor who starred in two big 1970s hits, "The Odd Couple" and "Quincy, M.E.," and who died last December. Klugman's son Adam is calling out the Emmy organizers for extending a special honor to Monteith -- the Canadian actor who died in July of heroin and alcohol poisoning at age 31 -- while tossing his father into the routine "In Memoriam" reel that will include many lesser-known actors and behind-the-scenes personnel.

Tommy Lee Jones has never been one to suffer fools but he may also not be a fan of Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell's quirky comedy. Although the 66-year old actor was on hand at Sunday night's Golden Globes to celebrate his film "Lincoln," which was nominated for seven awards, including one for Jones' portrayal of the wigged, limping Thaddeus Stevens, Wiig and Ferrell mocked Jones' other 2012 film, the dramedy "Hope Springs. " During the presentation of the best actress in a drama award, Wiig and Ferrell made up silly plot lines for each of the five nominees' films, including Meryl Streep, who played opposite Jones in a film about an old married couple PHOTOS: Golden Globes 2013 red carpet "Merial Streep," says Wiig.

Halloween is my favorite time of year. And I love to be scared. Over the years, I've been through my fair share of theme park mazes, independent haunted attractions and backyard spookfests. I even dress up every Halloween as a chainsaw-wielding maniac in a hockey mask and scare the neighborhood kids at the haunted house on our block.

But I've never experienced anything like McKamey Manor . > Photos: Inside the McKamey Manor backyard haunt in San Diego On Friday night I went through the backyard haunt tucked behind the three-bedroom, brick-and-stucco home of Russ and Carol McKamey in an otherwise ordinary San Diego subdivision near Poway.
