Sue's 'Sex' out at O

Sunday night is getting less steamy.

Oxygen's "Talk Sex" call-in show with colorful septuagenarian educator Sue Johanson is ending its run after six seasons, the cable network announced on Tuesday.

The final show airs Sunday at midnight.

Fallout for 'Hannah'?

"Hannah Montana's" latest wasn't the greatest.

Sunday's installment - the first new episode of the Disney Channel show to air since news of 15-year-old series star Miley Cyrus' controversial pictorial in Vanity Fair broke and the June issue of the magazine was distributed - attracted 3. …
