Glee will take on the topic of teenage sex tonight, airing an episode titled "The First Time" for the reason you might expect: two couples will share their first sexual experience with each other.

In response, the Parents Television Council has issued a statement condemning the storylines, which will center around Blaine and Kurt, Rachel and Finn.

“The fact that Glee intends to not only broadcast, but celebrate children having sex is reprehensible,” said PTC president Tim Winter. “The gender of the high school characters involved is irrelevant. Teen sex is now more prevalent on TV than adult sex and Glee is only playing into that trend. Research proves that television is a teen sexual super peer that can, and likely will, influence a teen’s decision to become sexually active. Fox knows the show inherently attracts kids; celebrating teen sex constitutes gross recklessness.”

This isn't the first time the PTC has called out Glee for sensationalizing sex.

What do you think? Is it wrong to air a storyline based on teenagers having intercourse?

Conan O’Brien is resurrecting an old standby tonight.

For the first time since moving to TBS last year, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will join O’Brien on stage. Conan tweeted the news via this pic from New York, where he's broadcasting this week. He's not looking too pleased about the insults to come:

Triumph and Conan

Technically, O’Brien’s content from NBC is property of that network, but the TBS host has already brought the Masturbating Bear back without repercussions.

It's go time for Triumph tonight. This sock puppet pooch drops comedic bombs on foolz like no other, and we can only pity who his victim(s) might be.

If you haven't seen this crass canine in action, you're in luck. We've dug deep and posted Triumph at the premiere of Star Wars: Episode II below ...

Lady Gaga will sit down with ABC's Katie Couric for a TV special that will air three weeks from tonight. Its title is short, sweet and holiday-themed:

A Very Gaga Thanksgiving.

The special promises an intimate look inside the private life of the pop superstar, who will perform eight songs - including "Marry the Night," "You and I," "The Edge of Glory," "White Christmas" and "Lady and the Tramp" with Tony Bennett.

The audience: Her own friends and family.

"We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon. This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers," says Couric.

"She will impress you, delight you and surprise you."

The 90-minute special (November 24, 8 p.m. ET) will also feature an interview with Couric, who will sit down at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Manhattan.

At Gaga's alma later, the women will discuss the New Yorker's music, her relationships, her rise to stardom, her life in the spotlight ... and her love of deep-fried turkey and waffles, which she'll make with the help of chef Art Smith.

Can't miss TV if you ask us!

The '90s sure are enjoying quite a rebirth lately. First, Beavis and Butt-Head returned on MTV. Now, it looks like Homey will soon play that again on Fox.

Two all-new special episodes of In Living Color, both a half hour in length, will air in spring of 2012 as part of the network's 25th anniversary celebration.

Keenen Ivory Wayans, who created and starred on the sketch comedy show (with pretty much all of his family), will act as host and executive producer.

If the specials featuring new cast members are a hit, In Living Color, which ran originally for five seasons and 127 shows, could return full-time in the fall.

Aside from the Wayans', the show introduced the world to Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Ann Inaba and Jim Carrey, featured in this classic below:

Charlie Sheen is officially headed back to television.

FX has picked up Anger Management, outbidding two other networks for a series that will feature Sheen as a therapist with a short temper and will be based on the 2003 movie that starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.

The sitcom will premiere with 10 episodes next summer, with FX already agreeing to 90 more if ratings are strong.

"We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie's acting talents - and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play," says John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks. "Two and a Half Men has been an outstanding component of FX's schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well."

This will mark the actor's first gig since he was fired by CBS for being positively insane.

Will you tune in to Sheen's upcoming series?

Beavis and Butt-Head are returning to MTV with new episodes tonight. No, this isn't 1997, the network is really bringing back the animated, slacker dumbass duo.

Mike Judge's cartoon, developed as a farcical, moronic but not inaccurate satire of the network's main programming at the time - music videos, those were the days!! - has officially been revived, with the titular characters ridiculing MTV's present-day fare.

That means Teen Mom and Jersey Shore jokes galore.

Beavis and Butt-Head Picture

"This show would rule if they showed them actually getting pregnant." Beavis on 16 & Pregnant. "This guy might be stupider than us." - Butt-Head on Sitch.

The material is new (and endless), but the idiots remain the same. Or have they? Will we see a more mature side of the terrible tandem after all this time?

Don't count on it, but by bringing back a slow, awkward, '90s style cartoon, MTV is certainly going against the grain. Whether it works remains to be seen.

Are you psyched for the return of Beavis and Butt-Head?

The Talk will have something to ... talk about in the form Aisha Tyler (Ghost Whisperer, Friends, and currently Archer) to the panel of the CBS daytime show.

Tyler joins Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood. The contracts of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were not renewed.

She previously guest-hosted on CBS' answer to The View, which celebrates its one-year anniversary this month, and made her debut today.

Can Aisha Tyler jumpstart The Talk?

As part of an attempt to revamp the year-old show, CBS has rotated in a string of guest hosts; Kris Jenner did a stint, as did Molly Shannon.

Back in 2009, Tyler shot an eponymous talk show pilot for ABC that was described as a hybrid between daytime and late-night talk shows.

It didn't really pan out. Hopefully this will!

Over 27 million people tuned in for the season nine premiere of Two and a Half Men, anxious to see what all the Ashton Kutcher-related hype was about.

Since then, however, ratings have dropped steadily for the CBS sitcom, which remains one of the most-watched show on television, yet has lost about 10 million households since its September opener.

Charlie Sheen thinks he knows the problem and, no, he isn't about to blame Ashton Kutcher's sordid personal life. The actor simply tells INF Daily that the show isn't very good, he's "extremely disappointed" with the way producers are "handling what I left behind" and ratings are poor because:

"People aren't stupid ... not all of them."

What do you think, readers? Whose version of Two and a Half Men do you prefer?

"Everyone was so welcoming," Pickler told People of the shoot. "I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and I'd love to do it again, but at the end of the day, I want to be on the radio."

As viewers will find out later this season, Austin has other famous relatives, as well: Billy Ray Cyrus will soon show up as the character's dad.

Bullying. It's all the rage these days ... pun not intended.

Girl Fight, the Lifetime movie based on a true story of a teen beating in Florida, premiered last night. What was so important about this particular story?

A self-described brainiac, 16-year-old Haley enters her senior year of high school determined to have some more fun. Enter the popular girls led by Alexa.

Alexa welcomes her into the fold after she does her a few favors, but not all of the popular girls like her. Soon enough, Haley is being full-on cyber-bullied.

After that, Facebook taunts give way to physical violence.

Anne Heche and James Tupper, a real life couple, play Haley’s parents.

Girl Fight is trying to tell a bigger story than that of Victoria “Tori” Lindsay, the girl assaulted in Lakeland, Fla. Lifetime producers call the film "universal."

It depicts the tragic world of bullying, but also sends a message of forgiveness, says Jodelle Ferland, 16, plays Haley, the girl attacked by her peers.

“She’s just a normal girl trying to fit in. How she got through it [the attack] showed a lot of courage. She was angry, but she never wanted revenge.”

She described the movie as instructive because it helps families deal with issues, such as violence and resolving conflict - breaking the cycle at last.

It's a strong message. As Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and countless other stars have told us in recent months, bullying is a cycle that must be broken.
