WEEK AHEAD: Destiny's Child Say a Stylish Goodbye
SUNDAY, SEPT. 4: With Vince (Adrian Grenier) heartbroken over his failed relationship with Aquaman costar Mandy Moore and Ari (Jeremy Piven) still fighting to be a Hollywood power player after getting fired, can the boys of Entourage get their lives back on track in the season finale of the hit HBO show? See if brotherhood prevails when the episode airs at 10 p.m. ET.
THURSDAY, SEPT. 8: Fashion and music will converge once again at the second annual Fashion Rocks concert, which kicks off New York City's Fashion Week. The event will mark Destiny's Child's final televised appearance before they disband. There will also be performances by Gwen Stefani, David Bowie, Joss Stone, Tim McGraw, Shakira, Duran Duran, Nelly, Rob Thomas and others. Sugar Ray frontman (and Extra host) Mark McGrath and Without a Trace star Poppy Montgomery host the stylish evening, which takes place at Radio City Music Hall and airs in a two-hour CBS special on Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. ET.
The O.C.: Expect more teen angst – and some adult woes thrown in for good measure – with the premiere of the third season of The O.C. As we revisit our Southern California cast of characters, Kirsten (Kelly Nichol Rowan) may get out of rehab, but will she stay sober? And last season, we left off with Marissa (Mischa Barton) intervening in the fight between Ryan (Benjamin McKenzie) and Trey (Bradley Stryker) – and shooting Trey in the back. Can Trey survive his gunshot wound? Tune in as another dramatic chapter of the FOX show begins at 8 p.m. ET.
FRIDAY, SEPT. 9: She's battled postpartum depression and Tom Cruise's criticism and now Brooke Shields is returning to Broadway to star as murderess Roxie Hart in the long-running revival of Chicago. It's familiar ground for the former Suddenly Susan star, who's made several trips to the Great White Way: in last year's Wonderful Town, playing Rizzo in Grease and Sally Bowles in Cabaret. Things are already looking good for Shields' foray back to the stage. In a recent review, Variety noted that "Shields sounds like the very vaudevillian Roxie had long dreamed of being, lacking only the cigar."
