What does "Arrested Development" star Jeffrey Tambor eat when he's in town? Crab cakes from Faidley's? Corned beef from Attman's? Turns out the actor, who plays George Bluth Sr. on the show, had a craving for a sandwich from the deli at Eddie's of Mount Vernon. Tambor gave a talk Saturday as part of University of Maryland Baltimore County's homecoming celebration, and swung by Eddie's afterward.  Liam Flynn, proprietor of the Station North ale house that bears his name -- and also an "Arrested Development" fan --spotted Tambor's shiny black car and security detail in front of the neighborhood grocery store.

Are you rap-phobic? Do you avoid rap shows on television because you're afraid they'll show nothing but crotch-grabbing gangstas and rump-shaking hotties? Do you believe that all rap is based around boasting, violence and misogyny?If so, then you should make an appointment with MTV. Because if Arrested Development's hour-long performance on "MTV Unplugged" (at 10 on the cable channel tonight, and again at 10 p.m. Sunday) doesn't change your mind about rap music, nothing will.Although pop fans are probably familiar with the Grammy-winning group through such singles as "Tennessee," "People Everyday" and "Mr. Wendal," hearing Arrested Development on the radio or watching its videos only hints at its distinctive nature.

Netflix, riding high on the critical success of their show "Orange is the New Black," seems likely to order more episodes of "Arrested Development. " Meanwhile, protesters have targeted both the Zimmerman verdict and the virtual slave labor of the for-profit prison industry, hooking their protests on Zimmerman's acquittal and Bastille Day, respectively. Finally, a fellow in Australia found that sexism was alive and well when he prepended a "Mr. " onto his resume and quickly reversed his job prospects.

We loved that song. While Mama was at work, my younger sister Reagan and I used to blast Arrested Development's "People Everyday." The hit was on the radio, like, every 10 minutes during the summer of '92. As I cranked up the volume, I'd call out to Reagan, who was always in the bathroom mirror experimenting with her hair: "Girl, the jam's on!" She'd fly into the living room - one side of her head done, the other side looking like she had been in a fight. And we'd hurriedly move the coffee table out of the way for our own Soul Train.

It's hard to say whether or not good things really do come to those who wait. But as the members of the rap group Arrested Development learned, sometimes good things can come from simply having to wait.As evidence, take the group's wonderfully precocious debut album, "3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life of. . . ." It doesn't take too many hearings for any listener to realize there's a lot of wisdom packed into these grooves, as the group addresses everything from the place of the church in today's African-American community ("Fishing for Religion")

Robots [Fox] $30 Robots is a visually stunning, computer-animated, family comedy from the creative team of Ice Age. The best of the extras are the original Robots short used to pitch the movie; a decent "making of" featurette; a mini-documentary on the Blue Man Group, who collaborated on the score; an informative look at the creation of each character, including interviews with the voice actors; and laid-back commentary with director Chris Wedge and...

"Cop Killer,'' that invidious record by that mediocre rap star,Ice T, continues to cause controversy. A recent appearance by Ice T at College Park brought out the usual band of police, their families and supporters to protest the rap musician's effete effort at social commentary. Though he didn't perform ''Cop Killer,'' Ice T did excoriate the police for protesting ''when they should be out catching criminals.'' Ice T would probably look genuinely confused if someone were to suggest that police officers have the same rights of free speech he seems to think belong exclusively to rap musicians.

Nobody expects critics to make nice. Where others are obliged to be tactful and polite, we're allowed -- indeed, expected -- to snipe at all targets, no matter how benign or beloved. We can make caustic cracks about anything from Amy Grant's perkiness to Michael Bolton's hair. Hey, it's our job.So why do I feel guilty about not liking the new Arrested Development album, "Zingalama- duni" (Chrysalis 29274, arriving in stores today)?It's not as if there aren't things to like about the album.

A few weeks ago, sitcom writer Mitchell Hurwitz had a brief Sally Field moment. His offbeat freshman show Arrested Development was nominated for seven Emmys, including best comedy, on the heels of taking top honors from the Television Critics Association. He said his first happy thoughts ("Wow. They really like us.") were followed by mild panic ("What do you think they like? What should we do now?"). Despite the show's success with critics, Arrested Development remains Fox's lowest-rated comedy.

If you don't think the way we watch TV is in the midst of monumental change, ask yourself: Has any new network series of late generated nearly as much excitement as the return at 12:01 a.m. Sunday of “Arrested Development” on Netflix? The offbeat sitcom about the Bluth family, one of the most dysfunctional clans in TV history, was canceled by Fox seven years ago because it was deemed to have too small an audience to be profitable for network TV. But network TV is now seven years closer to its dinosaur grave, and Netflix appears to be booming with a new business model of distribution for TV shows that aren't on TV. Exhibit A is “House of Cards,” the Maryland-made political thriller starring Kevin Spacey as House Majority Whip Francis Underwood.

Heading into a game against No. 1 Kansas on Sunday, Tennessee knows it needs every ounce of talent from every player. Now the Volunteers are down to six scholarship players because four were suspended indefinitely after being charged with gun possession. A police report included officers saying they smelled marijuana coming from a car and saw an open container of alcohol during a traffic stop just hours after the team defeated Memphis on Thursday. Senior forward Tyler Smith will be missed the most.

Liza Minnelli loves Whitesnake. No, really: Judy Garland's diva daughter -- the triple-threat showbiz legend who has won an Emmy, an Oscar and myriad Tonys -- totally digs the hard, head-banging '80s band. She even has them on her iPod. "Honey, I'm a dancer -- I love rock!" says Minnelli with the verve and volume of a teenager demanding a heavy-metal encore. "I love Whitesnake! You bet!" A phone call with the one and only L-I-Z-A is like chatting with an exclamation point. She's a pip, a hoot, an honest-to-goodness name-in-lights star.

Spending long periods of time in an enclosed space, with no contact with the outside world, can do things to a person. Just ask Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and star Zach Braff, who have been toiling away at their show - shot at a deserted hospital in the San Fernando Valley - for half a season now, with no one having seen their work. "I think as actors, we were a little bit extra-wacky and silly, and I think the scripts were a little more surreal and crazy," Braff says. Viewers will finally get to see the extra-wacky fruits of their labor when Scrubs begins its fifth season on NBC tonight at 9. The late start stems from the fact that the network opted for only four comedies on its fall schedule, with My Name Is Earl and The Office filling the 9 p.m. Tuesday hour that was Scrubs' primary home the past couple of seasons.

1. Most Groan-Inducing Red Carpet Line So many contenders for this award. Carson Kressley, the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star, was firing quips like personal assistants. To Cynthia Nixon, dressed in brown, he said, "I think you look delicious in it - chocolately delicious." But his shining moment came when interviewing Project Runway's Heidi Klum, who was wearing a Christian Dior floral dress. Kressley said, "It's Dior, and it's Diorable." 2. Best Revenge on the Red Carpet Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria was snubbed in the awards last night (three of her co-stars were nominated)
