It would have been a typical television handling of events: Teen star leaves successful series for college, teen's character leaves TV home for art school, loyal audience bids the character farewell, cast moves on with the business of entertaining. But the series is the top-rated "Roseanne," which will not handle the turn of events in typical TV fashion when the show returns Sept. 14. The teen is Darlene Conner, the sassiest daughter in America's first television family.

Daytime TV talk show ratings have surged this season, and the jockeying between the competing shows has been heating up. Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday welcomed back fan favorites, the British cousins Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie Mcclelland, to her Warner Bros.-produced syndicated show. The frilly pink-dressed girls' initial visits more than two years ago were instrumental in helping DeGeneres recruit legions of teenagers and young women to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," as well as her YouTube channel.

Sara Gilbert of "The Talk" is engaged to Linda Perry, her girlfriend of more than a year, the co-host announced Monday on the show. The proposal, which was elaborate, is best captured by the notoriously shy Gilbert herself, who shares the event in the video down below -- definitely worth watching to hear all the intricacies. Be warned: It involves a love song, a breakup song, a picnic, a guitarist, a daydream, a string section and horns, T-shirts, moms, friends and musician John Waite.

Sara Gilbert, who grew up on TV's "Roseanne"--playing Roseanne Conner's acerbic and willful daughter Darlene--graduates with honors from Yale Monday. (Gilbert makes her final appearance as Darlene tonight on the series finale.) After graduation, Sara, like those Ivy League alums Jodie Foster and Brooke Shields, returns to show-biz full time. In fact, a 25-minute documentary that Gilbert produced and directed turned out so well it has been invited for screening at several film festivals. . . .

About 50 animal rights supporters--including one dressed in a rabbit costume--demonstrated Saturday outside Cybill Shepherd's home in Sherman Oaks, complaining that the actress profits from a cosmetics company that they allege tortures mice when testing products. The protest, sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, targeted Shepherd for her work promoting L'Oreal cosmetics.

Sara Gilbert is nobody's lost child. The heady young actress who plays loudmouth Darlene on ABC's "Roseanne" wanted to set the record straight about a recent TV Guide story on teen superstars that read: "Sara bends down, her hair falling over her face; she clutches her hands around her knees and sways like a lost child." "That was a lost reporter," Gilbert, 15, shot back. Gilbert's trademark smirk prowled across her mischievous face at the image of herself as a downtrodden child star.

Ratings for Friday's premiere of "Threshold" were hardly out of this world. CBS' two-hour debut of the sci-fi thriller -- about a team of scientists investigating an extraterrestrial craft that touches down in the Atlantic -- averaged a so-so 8.4 million viewers, according to early figures from Nielsen Media Research. The first hour stumbled against NBC's "Dateline" (9.7 million), though "Threshold" perked up later and won the 10 p.m. slot. On the WB Network, the sitcom premiere "Twins" (3.

In "Poison Ivy," (selected theaters), Drew Barrymore plays Ivy, a teen seductress with a Kewpie doll mouth, a strategically placed tattoo and heels. Using her carefully honed wiles, she infiltrates a wealthy, massively screwed-up L.A. family and throws everybody for a loop. There are a lot things on this movie's mind. The problem is, there's isn't much of a mind.
