Riley Cooper made a splash upon his return to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. The controversial receiver, who came back to practice after a video  of him using a racial slur had surfaced, caught three long passes for touchdowns. Cooper, who has apologized publicly and to his teammates for the video  that went viral last week, declined to elaborate on what type of professional help he received during his four-day hiatus from training camp. Eagles Coach Chip Kelly also declined.

Ming-Na Wen possesses the power of persuasion. Producers for NBC's "The Single Guy," as well as those behind "The Joy Luck Club," weren't convinced Wen was right for the roles she eventually got. But Wen talked them into casting her. "Single Guy's" Trudy, the smart-alecky, neurotic art-gallery manager, "was a non-Asian specific role," explains Wen over lunch at a downtown restaurant. It came down to "me and a bunch of Caucasian actresses." But Wen made producers laugh.

Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, schooled deeply in Chicago Blackhawks tradition, summed up his years there in about a 15-second sound bite, managing to cover it quite succinctly. “Young guy. Old guy. Single guy. Married guy. With children,” Sutter said on Thursday about his life changes in Chicago. Then he moved from his personal history to the rich Chicago sporting landscape. “Lots of sports,” he said. “Two baseball teams. Football team. Got great basketball team.

Rodney Dangerfield can relate. So far this season, rookie NBC sitcoms "The Single Guy" and "Caroline in the City" rank as the fourth and fifth most popular series on television. Clearly, the audience is watching. But, like Dangerfield, the two shows don't get no respect from most critics and industry insiders. The unanimous refrain: The season has produced no true breakaway hits; these newcomers got lackluster reviews and have garnered great ratings only because of their time slots.

Jonathan Silverman is keenly aware of the pros and cons of starring in a television series. Though the 29-year-old actor has appeared in more than 18 movies (including both "Weekend at Bernie's" comedies) and headlined on Broadway in Neil Simon's Tony Award-winning "Broadway Bound," he isn't a household name or face. But that's all about to change. Silverman is starring in the new NBC comedy "The Single Guy," in which he plays--who else?--a single guy.

Sometimes I long for my single days. This usually happens on weekends, when I'm settling down with a book after a quiet dinner at home. I'll start thinking about how, only a few years ago, Saturday night (or Tuesday or, come to think of it, any night) meant I'd be out partying. But wedding bells, as the song goes, have broken up that old gang of mine. Those times of running through town, wild as a pack of dogs on garbage day, are done. And I say to myself: Face it, old man.

Tonight marks the debut of NBC's heralded, singles-tilted Thursday night lineup, which finds two new comedy series being safely enfolded by hit returnees. "The Single Guy" is expected to draw a big audience because it airs between "Friends" and "Seinfeld." And "Caroline in the City" is expected to draw an even larger audience because it's hammocked between "Seinfeld" and "ER."

Bradley Cooper, star of “The Hangover 3,” may be Hollywood's most well-adjusted mama's boy.

The man knows his entertainment, his sport and his theater. "I hope we get to play him a few more times … this year," Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said. Sutter was speaking about the Kings and Anaheim, and specifically, the Ducks' incomparable Teemu Selanne. The pause was a creative way of throwing puck proceedings forward to the playoffs, going beyond the finale of this regular-season series between the Kings and Ducks. This, in fact, was Saturday morning, many hours before the Kings' hard-fought and tense 2-1 victory over the Ducks, which featured one waved-off goal and enough emotion to fill the cavernous Staples Center, a rarity in the regular season.

I had to watch an episode of "Prison Break" the other night just to remember what a man is -- refresh me, "Prison Break." That's because I had also watched this marshmallow of a pilot called "What About Brian," an ABC drama that premieres Sunday. "What About Brian" is "Prison Break," except the prison is a man's feelings and escape involves eluding the warden of his doubts, and we're talking maximum-security misgivings.

A romantic comedy about a hunky guy who gives up sex for Lent sounds smirky, and "40 Days and 40 Nights" is that--but it offers more. That's because it was directed by that most subversive of filmmakers, Michael Lehmann ("Heathers") from a script by a terrific first-time writer, Robert Perez, who's in tune with Lehmann's dark, gleeful sense of humor.

At the wardrobe department for the NBC's "Seinfeld," it's easy to imagine that the show's characters are real. In a cluttered back room tucked inside a cavernous sound stage in Studio City, there's Jerry Seinfeld's closet. The shelves are loaded with stacks of solid-colored T-shirts, the kind Seinfeld's character often wears, and they're all meticulously folded as if the fastidious, fictional Jerry arranged them himself.

"The Single Guy" (Jonathan Silverman) was in good company Wednesday as the comedy and its four neighboring Thursday night series grabbed the five top spots and helped propel NBC to first place in the prime-time standings last week. The figures from Nielsen Media Research showed that CBS was runner-up in households for the second week in a row but came in fourth among the 18- to 49-year-old viewers most coveted by advertisers. NBC continues to lead for the season and in the February sweeps.
