OMG, guys. Thursday marks the return of MTV's "Awkward" for its second season. Obvi, we're just as uberklempt as you. Last season saw Jenna finally DTR (define the relationship) with Matty ... by going for his BFF Jake. Ouch! And not to totally hit shuffle on the subject, but poor Jenna also found out that the author behind that hurtful letter that haunted her all season was her own mother. Drah-ma! Ashley Rickards, who plays Jenna, spoke to Show Tracker about the show's sophomore season -- "I cant wait for the viewers to see it and react.

For those who were wondering about the zoo-like setting at Lakers' media day … Was this merely setting the stage for an "insane season"? Pau Gasol, probably the most-sensible, well-grounded star, might have been the best Lakers player to answer the question. “Well, we'll see,” Gasol said on Monday. “We can make it insane and it can be insane in different ways. We just have to keep it to the direction we want it to be.” Having a semblance of control would be a nice change for Gasol after a chaotic and wildly uncertain year.

Reporting from Green Bay, Wis. -- Have the Philadelphia Eagles assembled the "Dream Team," or is this another fantasy football roster built to disappoint? That's just one of the pressing questions heading into this NFL season. A few of the others: Did the lockout truly favor those teams with an established coach and quarterback, or can the teams that really had to cram in this compressed off-season make the grade? Will the Peyton Manning saga be a pain in the neck for the Indianapolis Colts all season?

“Arrested Development” fans, the wait is (almost) over: The cult favorite will make its highly anticipated return next spring with at least 10 episodes - possibly more. The news, first reported by the Huffington Post , was confirmed by a Netflix spokesperson. Rumors of an “Arrested Development” revival have surfaced repeatedly ever since the critically beloved but but ratings-challenged sitcom was canceled by Fox in 2006. Last year, Mitchell Hurwitz and the entire cast reunited for the first time at the New Yorker Festival, and announced plans for a new, limited-run season and a possible movie.

DENVER - The worst game the Ducks played this season before Wednesday was here in their opener, a 6-1 loss capped by Colorado Avalanche rookie Coach Patrick Roy threatening to break through a glass partition to fight Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau. That image has lasted longer than what happened afterward: the Ducks embarking on a seven-game win streak and a 15-2-1 roll. Back in Pepsi Center on Thursday, the Ducks (43-16-7) went through perhaps their most spirited, contact-filled practice of the season, a night removed from their horrific showing in a 7-2 loss at woeful Calgary.

When: Noon. Where: StubHub Center. On the air: TV: Unimas; Radio: 1330. Records (2013): Chivas USA 6-20-8, Fire 14-13-7. Record vs. Fire (2013): 1-0. Update: Chivas USA goes into a new season with new owners, new hope and 12 new players. All that translated into an unbeaten preseason but the team starts with a clean slate Sunday against a Chicago Fire squad that just missed the playoffs last fall. Sunday's game will mark a homecoming of sorts for the Fire's Mike Magee, the reigning MLS MVP and a longtime fan favorite with the Galaxy who hasn't played here since being traded to Chicago 10 months ago. Magee is likely to play some minutes but he may not start Sunday.

The Victorian-era detectives of "Ripper Street" have been granted a stay of execution, thanks to Amazon, which ordered a third season of the BBC series that had been canceled last year. The online retail giant announced the new eight-episode season as part of the launch of its Amazon Prime Streaming Video service in the United Kingdom. The third season will stream on Amazon in the United Kingdom before it airs on BBC One, where the first two seasons aired. BBC America, a co-producer of the series, will air the new season after it has aired in the United Kingdom on BBC One. Currently, Amazon does not have streaming rights for the show in the United States.

As the Cactus League opens for play Wednesday, the most immediate story line is not difficult to determine: Is there really a rivalry between the Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks? The Dodgers won the National League West. The Diamondbacks complained when the Dodgers jumped into the Chase Field pool to celebrate the division title, then mocked them for sending A.J. Ellis to Australia to promote the season opener rather than, say, Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers and Diamondbacks face each other Wednesday and Thursday, then once more in Arizona, then twice in Sydney, in the opening series down under.

It's the first workout of spring, so naturally it's time for the "what if" game. Hey, it's never too early. In today's exciting edition we ask: If Josh Beckett does win the fifth spot in the Dodgers' rotation and Paul Maholm goes to the bullpen as he said he'd be willing to do, who moves out? The bullpen is more crowded than living quarters in a submarine. They brought back late-season addition Brian Wilson and signed Chris Perez and Jamey Wright in the off-season, to go along with Kenley Jansen, J.P. Howell, Brandon League, Paco Rodriguez and Chris Withrow.

With renewals from nearly all of their ticket holders, the Dodgers have suspended sales of new season seats. Tickets for individual games go on sale Friday on the team website and Saturday at Dodger Stadium, with prices ranging from $10 to $150. The Dodgers divide individual games into four categories - based on projected popularity - and price them accordingly. For example, a seat on the reserved level could cost $45 on a bobblehead night, $35 for an April fireworks night, and $25 for a midweek day game.

Welcome to center stage, Arian Foster. Your 231 yards rushing Sunday not only landed you a spot in the Houston Texans' record books — and were only 26 yards shy of what you amassed in six games as a rookie last season — but they helped your team pull off a 34-24 stunner over Indianapolis. That was just the second time in 17 tries the Texans beat the Colts. "We heard all off-season that our running game wasn't efficient," said Foster, whose opening-game rushing performance was topped in NFL history only by O.J. Simpson's 250 for Buffalo against New England in 1973.

Hang on to your deerstalker cap: Sherlock Holmes is not dead. This news may come as a shock to some, not least to John Watson, the doctor played by Martin Freeman in "Sherlock," the BBC's contemporary adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective stories. The critically acclaimed show, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the title detective, returns to PBS on Sunday. The new season picks up two years after the last one left off, with Holmes having faked his own death by supposedly leaping from St. Bartholomew's Hospital.

“American Idol” has done the unthinkable: It's gone back to basics. After years of trying to find its mojo with high profile judges and format switches, the aging singing franchise has dialed it down for its latest season, which premieres Wednesday and Thursday. Last season proved to be a disaster for the one-time ratings and talent juggernaut. Ratings hit a record low and the talent -- as fierce as some contestants were -- took a backseat to the petulant behavior between superstar judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
