Parents, your worst nightmare has officially arrived. With all of the prank shows on TV nowadays, it was only a matter of time before some network came up with a opportunity for kids to embarrass their folks nationally. And thanks to Disney Channel, that nightmare comes in the form ofÂ Code 9 (tonight, 7:30pm ET). I knew something was askew last week when my kids (ages 9 and 7) told me I had to sit down and watch “this cool new show” with them. They thought the idea of children making their mom and dad look silly was the funniest thing [...]
Disney Channel took inspiration for its latest original film, Let It Shine, from the classic play Cyrano de Bergerac, then added some 8 Mile and Footloose-like drama to deliver a refreshingly uplifting story about staying true to oneself. The film debuts Friday, June 15 at 8pm ET/PT. The mouse ears ventures out of its usual comfort zone for this music-driven film, as the story is set in the world of hip-hop, rap and gospel music. Everybody Hates Chris star Tyler James Williams plays Cyrus DeBarge, a shy teen whose heartfelt rhyme about his childhood friend Roxie â€” who is now [...]
It might seem a little sacrilegious during the holidays to refer to a piece of technology as a savior, but the DVR can certainly be your best friend with so many great specials, movies and sporting events airing this time of year. Our favorite dramas and sitcoms take a well-deserved break to make room for more seasonal fare, and tonight is a great example of the entertainment cup running over. So set that DVR to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun this evening.
By Stacey Harrison Follow @ChannelGuideSRH The cast and crew of Good Luck Charlie have gone through a lot together, but up till their most recent stint, that hadnâ€™t included leaving the comforts of their Los Angeles studio.

In the festive flick â€” which premieres tonight at 8 on Disney Channel â€” the Duncan family embarks on a family vacation that despite everyoneâ€™s best intentions quickly turns positively Griswoldian, as the family becomes separated and must race to reunite [...]
1. You’re at a magazine rack and can only pick three magazines. Which ones do you pick? Hmm, thatâ€™s hard. Probably Teen Vogue, Seventeen and something guilty pleasure, like US Weekly or one of those magazines. 2. If your TV only aired three shows, which three would you want? True Blood. Community. (In the background, to boyfriend Matt Prokop, â€śThree shows from the tv, babe?â€ť) And Workaholics. 3. What has been your strangest celebrity encounter? Probably when I went up to J.J. Abrams because I was the biggest Lost fan, and he knew who I was and was a fan [...]

By Tom Comi For those of you who will for one reason or another be up at 4 am ET tomorrow with no desire whatsoever to watch the Royal wedding, we here at Channel Guide Magazine have you covered. For every network that is covering the over-hyped vows, there are countless others that are offering a potpourri of programming choices. With that in mind, here is what we are officially deeming our “Un-Royal Best Bets,” which is subjective at best when you consider that all of these shows are airing just after midnight on the West Coast and shortly before [...]
by Karl J. Paloucek This past Wednesday, the nominations went out for the 37th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, which is where a lot of the kids’ shows get recognized.
