"Big Brother" is a ridiculous show, but dagnabbit it's summer and sometimes the ridiculous is welcome. BB17 has its two-night premiere June 24 and June 25, with plenty of new twists ahead (expect the unexpected!) and the reality show's first transgender houseguest.

Edie Falco's nurse-with-addiction-issues dramedy is ending on June 28. Here's the synopsis for Season 7, Episode 12, "I Say a Little Prayer": "Jackie gets offered a job - and wants Zoey to come with her."
