    CBS has shelled out a big pilot production commitment to Magnum P.I., an update of the classic 1980s Tom Selleck series set in Hawaii.

She and her tribe of friends mix tropical beaches with the seedy underbelly of international crime and modern espionage, even as she tries to unravel...

The missile strike marks the first time that American soil has been struck by a foreign military since December 7, 1941 when Japan attacked a US Naval port at Pearl Harbor and...

Meanwhile, George - who split from on/off girlfriend Lisa Snowdon last year - recently revealed he thinks 2006 will be the year he settles down.
