CBS Adds Dramas Starring Jonny Lee Miller and Dennis Quaid

The upfront event for top-rated CBS typically has the smoothness and confidence of a long-running Broadway musical that makes other productions in the area look like dinner theater.

Wednesday afternoon's event, which included an entertaining rap-opera number by NCIS L.A. star LL Cool J and lyric soprano Danielle de Niese, was no different. CEO Les Moonves, bragging about the network's position of strength, summed up his pitch to advertisers in four syllables.

"Blah," he began, concluding, "blah, blah, blah."

The biggest news was the announcement that Two and a Half Men, having re-secured the services of wily man-child Ashton Kutcher, was being moved to Thursdays and teamed with The Big Bang Theory.

The theory is that this will defeat other networks by creating an impenetrable force field of howling sitcom laughter.

While Dennis Quaid has been shedding light on his latest flick, Soul Surfer, his brother Randy Quaid has been in the news with wife Evi – under a dark cloud.

The troubled couple has been on the run from police since failing to appear in court several times for a felony vandalism arraignment stemming from an October 2010 incident.

Dennis, 56, who has remained relatively quiet on his brother's disappearance and criminal record, finally acknowledges that Randy, 60, is in his thoughts.

"I love my brother," Dennis told PEOPLE recently while promoting his film at L.A.'s Luxe Hotel. "That's all I can say. I love my brother and I miss my brother. That's all I'm going to say."

Sarah & Matthew Join a Roster of Celebs Using Surrogates

Expanding their brood, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced this week they are welcoming twin girls via a surrogate.

By not revealing any details about why they chose a surrogate, Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, have left many of their well-wishing fans with questions.

For example, what is a surrogate? They are women, often with children of their own, who offer to carry the babies of couples who experience infertility. The most common variety, known as a gestational carrier, carries an embryo provided by the couple, and has no genetic relationship to the child in question (the womb-for-rent scenario). Other surrogates use sperm provided by the couple, but their own eggs.
