It's just another day on the set of "Glee" and Lea Michele, who plays spirited songstress Rachel Berry, is in her schoolgirl attire, roaming around with a salad in hand and a female companion by her side. Then John Stamos walks by. Michele plays it cool, greeting him casually. But as Stamos passes, the reaction that has shadowed him throughout his career reveals itself: "Oh, my God. That's Uncle Jesse," Michele's friend says in a muffled voice. Actually, it's John Stamos.

QUICK TAKES All-Star Game no hit The midsummer classic has turned into the midsummer snooze. Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, played in Anaheim and broadcast on Fox on Tuesday night, drew only 12.1 million viewers, its smallest audience ever. That was a 17% drop from the 2009 game, which averaged 14.6 million viewers. The previous record low was the 2005 game, which was played in Detroit and averaged 12.3 million viewers.

It was the last day that many of the doctors, nurses and other hospital favorites would work on an "ER" scene together.

The actress, best known for her turn on "Twin Peaks," has been heating up the dial lately as television's lady love du jour.

Here is John Stamos, back from the television dead in "Jake in Progress," a new series from ABC (previewing Sunday before taking its regular post Thursday), and looking very well indeed. As someone who has never watched a single episode of "Full House," the series that kept him busy with the Olsen twins for the better part of a decade -- really, I would tell you if I had -- I can't compare the post-teen idol to the boyish grown man.

America's squeaky-clean sitcom heartthrob is all grown up, recovering from a couple of personal hard knocks and about to launch his new ABC romantic comedy, "Jake in Progress." But none of these new turns in his life explains why people keep burning up his cellphone with messages that sound like rap lyrics: "Yo, yo, yo, P. Diddy, I'm your man." "You go, Puffy, I'm all for you." Blame Paris Hilton, of course. Or whoever supposedly hacked into her Sidekick and posted her address book online.
