Do you prefer "fashion victim" or "ensembly challenged"?: The cast of "Clueless" reunited for an Entertainment Weekly photo shoot for the mag's "All-Star Reunion Blowout" feature and sat down with "Good Morning America" to talk about their iconic '90s teen flick. While the late Brittany Murphy (a.k.a. Tai) was missing from the group, the cast reflected fondly on their scripted Beverly Hills high school years. When asked what they thought their characters would be today, Alicia Silverstone (a.k.a. Cher) was quick to the kicker: "married to her brother." Like, duh.

(P.S. Where was Paul Rudd, anyway?)

Bye, bye, bye: Meanwhile, on the second elimination episode of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," Joey Fatone and his pro partner, Kym Johnson, were booted from the disco ball trophy running this week. The pair performed a quick-step to one of the strangest renditions of Radiohead's "Creep" we've ever heard in episode 3, leading them to a relatively solid score of 22.5. (Judges are really loving their ability to tack on those half points this season.) But they were unable to wow in the end -- getting the boot from the bottom two, saving Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower. Next week: double elimination. What not to do when you're expecting: And finally, put your fists in the air, because the sixth and final season of "Jersey Shore" kicked off on MTV this week. The housemates wasted no time letting us know that this season won't be quite the same. Snooki's with child, Mike's just out of rehab, and Deena and J.Woww both are in committed relationships. But then again, some things never change: Vinny and Pauly D. rekindle their bromance to the max while Sammi and Ronnie are dating, but not dating, but totally dating. But only when she's not being lame or when he's not drinking. It's very complicated. But at long last and after five seasons, the producers are letting them officially share a room in the house together. The season premiere also comes with the announcement that Snooki, being the responsible mom-to-be that she is, wants to get her own place, where she won't be tempted by tequila shots, house music, and other non-maternal pleasures that flow freely on the shores of Jersey.

What did you watch this week? Did you catch the premiere of the last season of "30 Rock"? Did you see Boston's own Caitlin Michael's on "The Voice"? Or were you busy defending the honor of Big Bird on Twitter post-debate?
