News Brief

Allentown Morning Call: Did 'General Hospital' kill the Golden Goose? We miss the Quartermaines' typically wacky Thanksgiving dinners that usually ended up with the ordering of pizza. There are now very few Quartermaines left to share the holiday, which wasn't even celebrated this year -- owing largely to the death of Emily, one of the most perfect soap-opera characters.

Louisville Courier-Journal: Botched casting and unsubtlety spoil 'Brothers & Sisters'. ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" is a fine, upstanding member of the Quality Network TV Club. The drama, created by acclaimed playwright Jon Robin Baitz and TV whiz kid Greg Berlanti, is built on real-life matters such as the Iraq war and fierce political partisanship. The cast is a full court of TV royalty, with two-time Oscar winner Sally Field as the queen. So why do I dislike this show so very much?

This is Nottingham: Strictly Come Dancing judges Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood will apparently kiss and make up after a having a huge row live on air during Saturday night's show. "Some people reckon one of them will be eating humble pie." Viewers saw former "EastEnders" actress Letitia Dean get the boot after going head-to-head with Alesha Dixon in the dance-off.

Glens Falls Post-Star: Perhaps part of country music legend Bill Anderson's success has been his adaptability through the decades. In addition to having his own syndicated variety on television during the 1960s, Anderson was the first country star to host a network game show, starring on ABC's "The Better Sex." He also appeared for three years on the network's soap opera "One Life to Live" and served as host of several shows on The Nashville Network.

Kotaku: Shooting on the Dragon Ball Z hasn't started yet and the cast is still being assembled. Jamie Chung will be playing Goku's wife, Chi Chi. Chung cut her acting chops as herself in reality show "The Real World," three episodes of "Days of Our Lives" and as a Hooters girl in Adam Sandler's I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.
