The Ray Rice scandal is getting its own TV special. The Reelz network announced today that it will air "Ray Rice: Celebrity Bad Behavior" at 10 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 23). According to a press release, the OK! TV production is the network's way of "gearing up for the launch of TMZ Hollywood Sports," which premieres Sept. 29 on the network.

BEIJING -- In a candid and sober state of the union address this morning, Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji said the government would run a record budget deficit this year to prop up China's slowing economy while it continues to reform failing state-owned businesses.During his speech, which ran 33 pages, Zhu once again pledged not to devalue the nation's currency and to hammer away at endemic corruption that has contributed to protests across the country.In a clear reference to the recent crackdown on China's first opposition political party, he also urged the nation to maintain stability in a year of politically sensitive anniversaries, including the 1989 massacre of pro-democracy demonstrators near Tiananmen Square.

You can't put a price on wisdom, but you can put a price on wisdom.com: $475,000. That's right, the Internet domain name "wisdom.com" was recently bought for nearly a half-million dollars. That doesn't include any business property or even a Web site -- just the name, six little letters ending with dot-com, that two-syllable pulse of our age. If you think shelling out that kind of money for an online address is a little excessive, prepare to be amazed. The name "broadband.com" is on sale for $6 million, while "in.com" could be yours for $10 million.

Ross Johnson, was trying to find a way to boost the price of his company's stock. Here's an excerpt from "Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco," by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar:"There were other ways to boost the stock price, of course.

When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

[UPDATE] The premiere of CBS "Thursday Night Football" drew an average audience 20.8 million viewers making it the second highest rated show on TV behind only NBC's "Sunday Night Football. " The size of that audience for the Ravens 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers is a big victory for CBS on a very large gamble that viewers were ready for another weeknight of primetime football. CBS is charging advertisers the second highest ad rate on TV, $500,000 for a 30-second spot, by promising the Thursday night games will draw 20 million viewers combined with the simulcast on the NFL Network.

The final season of "True Blood" is here, and after three seasons  of definite misses, only the most devoted of fans (or those of us who  feel a compulsion to complete things) are here. Let's dive right in,  since the show does. The Set-Up Sick vampires are running amuck in Bon Temps, an unfortunate side  effect of the hep V-poisoned "True Blood" from last season. The federal  government is only really protecting major cities, making towns like Bon Temps easy pickings for the “Hep Vs.” The first 2.5 minutes of the s eason opener is a giant fight scene at Mayor Sam Merlotte's (!

When President Bush's popularity sagged, White House chief of staff John Sununu had to go. That failed to distract anyone who disliked the president. What bothered them was the recession, not Mr. Sununu's brusque manner. Still, almost any president would have done the same thing. In fact, the president of France, Francois Mitterrand, just did.Since the local elections last month repudiated the ruling Socialists, allowing them a scant 18.3 percent of the vote, all France was waiting for him to replace Prime Minister Edith Cresson.

"Halt and Catch Fire (HCF): An early computer command that sent the machine into a race condition, forcing all instructions to compete for superiority at once. Control of the computer could not be regained. " -- the show's title card We are introduced to AMC's newest white male antihero, Joe MacMillan, in an opening scene that calls to mind another character that fit that description. In a very "Breaking Bad"-esque cold opening, Joe runs over an armadillo in his sports car. He looks at the creature, stuck in the grill of his vehicle, with a blank expression.

Journeys of one kind or another - emotional, physical, spiritual - are at the heart of Colman Domingo's 2012 play "Wild with Happy," receiving its Baltimore premiere at Center Stage . There isn't just a road trip in this work, but a car chase. Domingo always seems to be on an eventful ride, too. The Philadelphia-born playwright and actor had a speech impediment as a child, so he retreated into books and writing. He majored in journalism when he entered college, but taking an elective course in acting led him in a whole new direction.
