SANDY 'SHORE.' Most of the "Jersey Shore" cast is reuniting for an MTV and United Way "Spring Fix" concert and fundraiser for superstorm Sandy at Six Flags Great Adventure on March 23 -- conspicuously minus Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio. The event will also help thank 50 college students giving up spring-break frivolities this week to help rebuild New York and New Jersey communities.

'BACHELOR' BABY. Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick -- the season 13 "Bachelor" star who proposed to Melissa Rycroft but rescinded and married runner-up Malaney instead -- have had their first child. "We welcomed the most beautiful healthy baby girl to our family today, Riley Anne Mesnick," the new dad tweeted March 14. Mesnick has a son, Tyler, 8, from a previous marriage.

FINALES. Gina McDonald was cut from "The Biggest Loser," leaving Danni Allen and Jeff Nichols as two finalists, plus either Jackson Carter or Joe Ostaszewski depending on viewer votes, live Monday night at 8 on NBC.

PREMIERES. "Dancing With the Stars" premieres Monday night at 8 with "Bachelor" Sean Lowe, singer Wynonna Judd and actor-comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley among the season 16 hoofers... Joey Lawrence and ESPN's Charissa Thompson host ABC's celebrity diving competition "Splash," starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday... and at 10 Tuesday it's TLC's next "Little People, Big World" special, "Conquering Mount St. Helens."

RECAPS. Private chef Khristianne Uy is the first winner of "The Taste" ... Curtis Finch Jr. is gone from "American Idol," and Sebastian Royo is the first chef axed from "Hell's Kitchen" season 11..."Survivor: Caramoan -- Fans vs. Favorites" booted Brandon Hantz... New York City's Tori Nichel is off "Fashion Star"... "Project Runway" does not heart Amanda Valentine... and David "House" Greathouse will no longer "Face Off."
