A few weeks ago we interviewed James Roday from "Psych" (returning Friday, August 7 at 10pm on USA). And when we say "we," we mean all the legions of dedicated Psych-Os that sent in their questions for Roday via Twitter.

'Scrubs': To Renew Or Not To Renew?

May 4th, 2009 12:03pm EDT
With news last week that ABC was considering carrying on Scrubs for a ninth season, the question buzzing around Hollywood was: Can Scrubs go on without J.D.?

The eighth season was supposed to be the last. After NBC decided not to renew the show last year, ABC, which had been producing the show since its premiere in 2001, took up the option to air the series, with the expectation that it would be the final season. Most of the main cast members have either stated that they wouldn't return for another season (Zach Braff, Judy Reyes) or have been cast in new television pilots (Donald...

Parks and Recreation
It may be a terrible thing to be fired by Dr. Cox on Scrubs but Aziz Ansari knows how to rebound. Aziz was nice enough to join us and discuss his time on Scrubs and his new show, Parks and Recreation in which he plays a "cynical" character working with Amy Poehler.

He says, "We thought the show was over after seven years and we all got this bonus year so we're all very excited about that. We don't know if ABC is going to continue airing the show or not - it will all depend on this season. I think eight years is a great run. I'm very thankfu...

'Scrubs' Is Back!

January 6th, 2009 10:02am EST
Last winter NBC announced that they would not be picking up Scrubs for an eighth season. When a bizarre fantasy world episode concluded the season that was shortened by the writers' strike, fans were left with a bad taste in their mouths. Could this really be the end of the fun dramedy that we had grown to love?

Slowly, the rumors began to circle that the actors had been asked to come back to work to make more episodes. Die-hards held out hope, and it became a reality when ABC announced that they would be airing a new season of Scrubs in January 2009. ABC Studios has actually...

The news ends long-running rumors he is leaving the hit show, along with creator Bill Lawrence and co-star Judy Reyes, after the series' eighth season, which premieres in January.

Celebrity Serial Daters

September 16th, 2008 9:15am EDT
John Mayer
In Hollywood, the dating circle seems to be so small that most celebrities share boyfriends and girlfriends and swap spit left and right. The time between significant others seems to get shorter and shorter as well. Last week's tabloid cover may show a huge celebrity breakup and the week after it will feature the same exes and who they're already dating next. And although this isn't the case with all of Hollywood, there are a few we like to call Celebrity Serial Daters.

John Mayer uses his smooth rock star status to make the ladies fall for him, but seems to break their hearts just a...

The pair, which ended its brief fling last November, was spotted cuddling up at a California restaurant on July 26th. And pals confirm they are dating again.

Supporting Superhero: A Look At The Stand-Out Film Roles Of Jason Bateman

July 1st, 2008 10:11am EDT
Jason Bateman
In the early part of his career, Jason Bateman was known as the cute sandy haired boy from the wholesome TV family. Beginning with Little House on the Prairie and taking it through "Silver Spoons" (where as the best friend he became part of the extended family) and "Valerie," he wore that role like it was his own skin. Only as he aged (like with 2001's "Some Of My Best Friends" and later with the critically acclaimed "Arrested Development") did he start to include sarcasm into his portrayals, opening up a world of possibilities for him to steal scenes in a number of feature films.

Hollywood's Sexiest Funnymen

In Hollywood there seems to be an everlasting stereotype that actors are extremely good looking and almost immortal. They are the untouchable eye candy on the screen. It doesn't matter what their personalities are like, we still idolize them and their looks.

Then there are those actors who seem to have very down-to-earth personalities and are so funny that you can't help but find them sexy. According to Psychology Today online, "The allure of male humor is so strong that female laughter may have evolved as a signal of sexual interest."

Here is our list of the top Hollywood sexy ...

Today's Top TV Duos

May 6th, 2008 8:37am EDT
The Office
What motivates audiences to watch TV shows? Why spend time on a series that will, in all likelihood, repeat storylines, invent contrived hook-ups and ultimately regress into something that challenges the viewer to wonder why he/she even began watching in the first place?

What's worse is that the viewers know this is going on. People sit in front of the boob tube every night knowing that Paula's going to say something stupid (scripted?) on "American Idol" and one of the "ER" doctors (models) is going to sleep with either another doctor (model) or endure an emotional breakdown due to a ...
