From Freaks and Geeks’ Kim Kelly to Cougar Town’s Laurie Keller, Busy Philipps has made a career out of playing lovable loudmouths. Off screen, the actress possesses the gift of gab as well, which is why we invited one of our small screen faves to call in to this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast! And call in she did. In a freewheeling discussion, Busy tells us all about her “disheartening” frustration with the lack of support from Cougar Town’s previous network, ABC, as well as some big changes for Laurie this season on the comedy’s new home of TBS. She also reminisces about her formative days on Freaks and Geeks, while also discussing being pregnant for the second time —and the bigger boobs that come with it!

Busy then provides some behind-the-scenes intel on how the Cougar Town set is unique when it comes to balancing work and parenting. Not only that, but the actress plays a few rounds of Jessica Shaw’s latest game — 7 Degrees of Busy Philipps!

But that’s not all. Jessica and I also size up the new American Idol judges panel. Is Nicki Minaj too over the top? Does Mariah Carey have anything of interest to say? And is Randy Jackson the only one willing to actually critique anyone? We give our first impressions of the first episodes and name some early favorite contestants as well.

InsideTV Podcast: Is Mariah Carey the most boring 'American Idol' judge...ever?

Other than a possibly manufactured feud with Nicki Minaj that she appears to want no part of, has Mariah Carey added anything to the American Idol judging panel? Considering all the vocal expertise at her disposal, we hoped she’d have some legitimate constructive criticism to share with this year’s auditioning contestants. Instead, she merely smiles, says yes or no in as boring a manner as possible, and then goes back to praying that her fellow female judge does not light into her again. Mariah’s yawn-worthy entrance onto the American Idol stage is just one of the first impressions Jessica Shaw and I will be breaking down on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast.

Also up for discussion on the new season of Idol: Is Randy the only judge actually willing to criticize? How are we feeling about the steady stream of inspirational sob stories being shoved down our throats? And does Keith Urban deserve better than being forced to play peacemaker between the two feuding divas? Also, who are our early favorites among the contestants? Click on the audio player icon to hear our thoughts and see if you agree. (The American Idol discussion beings at 24:00.)

But first, it’s time to get busy with one of our TV favorites — Busy Philipps! That’s right, the Cougar Town star calls in to talk about the comedy’s big move to TBS, her boobs getting a lot bigger (due to her pregnancy, natch), and what’s in store for her character coming up. She also shares some memories from her Freaks and Geeks days and plays a few kick-ass rounds of Jessica’s new game — 7 Degrees of Busy Philipps. READ FULL STORY

To reunion or not to reunion? That is the question for James Van Der Beek in the 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23' premiere

Any actor who has appeared on a successful, well-loved ensemble show has one question that haunts him forever after the series finale: “When are you guys going to get together for a reunion?” The season 2 premiere of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 takes that question head-on.

In the kick-off to the show’s sophomore season, which airs tonight, James Van Der Beek, played by James Van Der Beek, debates whether or not to pursue a reunion show for the cast of the turn-of-the-millennium teen drama that made him a star, Dawson’s Creek. SPOILER ALERT for those of you who don’t want to know any details about who from the Dawson’s bunch shows up. But for everyone who wants a peek into the production of this meta, reunion-within-a-reunion episode, read on.
