Who Are TV's Sexiest Men?

November 21st, 2014 1:00pm EST
Matt Bomer
People magazine rightfully declared Aussie-born actor Chris Hemsworth as "The Sexiest Man Alive." The actor, who has impressive bulked up for roles in "Marvel's The Avengers" and Thor 2: The Dark World, has definitely earned the title. But this blogger, who loves all things television, couldn't help but wonder: who television's sexiest men alive? Here are my top 10 picks in no particular order.

White Collar's Matt Bomer
While "White Collar" may be shuffling off to that great TV vault in the sky, star Matt Bomer's career is just beginning its stratospheric rise, thanks in part to his...

“Hawaii Five-O” star Alex O’Loughlin and his girlfriend Malia Jones have tied the knot. The actor's publicist confirmed the pair recently wed in Hawaii, but no further details were released.

O'Loughlin and Jones became pround parents six months ago after welcoming their first child together, son Lion, in October.

The couple also have two other children from previous relationships: O'Loughlin has teenage son, Saxon, and Jones has son Spike, 4.

How Many Sharks Have Your Favorite Shows Jumped?

April 19th, 2014 10:00am EDT
Supernatural
In the fickle word of entertainment, it's rare when a television show makes it through its first season. For the lucky shows that do, they risk jumping the shark, Hollywood's term for a show's cringe-worthy decline due to over-the-top or nonsensical plotlines. Has your favorite long-running series like "Supernatural" or "The Good Wife" made the leap? Read on to find out...

"Supernatural"

It's a little baffling that the CW's sci-fi show is bringing in some of its best ratings yet in its ninth season. It's mind-boggling to realize that after nearly 200 episodes, "Supernatural" is s...

'Hawaii Five-0' Season 4: 5 Spoilers You Need To Know

CBS Corporation
It has felt like eons since May sweeps rolled out their suspenseful best.  Luckily, our favorite shows are gearing up for a new season of drama, comedy and tweet-worthy moments.  For CBS' "Hawaii Five-0," that means applying the sunscreen, waxing the surfboard, and dusting off your favorite bulletproof vests.  

The season 3 finale ended with Kono and her ex-gangster boyfriend on the run from the Yakuza; Danno reuniting with his erstwhile girlfriend played by the adorable Autumn Reeser; and an imprisoned Wo Fat and a visiting Steve McGarrett under siege by the kingpin's enemies.  Season 4 m...

50 Hottest Celebrity Guys Of 2012

Hottest Guys of 2012
Who are the sexiest guys in music, film and television? We narrowed our picks down to 50 in our annual list, spotlighting those who made our hearts skip a beat when we watched them perform.

Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey bared quite a bit in "Magic Mike," while "The Avengers" actors got our blood flowing with their explosive action scenes.

We lusted after Chris Hemsworth in "Snow White And The Huntsmans" and felt a little bit giddy when rumors swirled that Justin Bieber broke up with Selena Gomez (he didn't.)

British imports The Wanted and One Direction also caught our fancy, as ...

When you’re watching an episode of “Hawaii Five-0,” you’re guaranteed three things: gratuitous shots of Hawaii’s obscenely beautiful landscapes and shorelines, violent murders and adrenaline-packed action scenes. The cop show’s admittedly rocky second season ended with the team briefly united before Steve traveled to Japan to finally meet the infamous “Shelburne,” and peril striking back Chin Ho and Kono back in Hawaii. The third season starts on Sept. 24, so grab your coconut cocktails and prepare for the five spoilers you need to know...

TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

May 25th, 2012 12:07pm EDT
Revenge Cast
Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-c...

10 Favorite Small Screen Scene-Stealers

March 12th, 2012 2:00pm EDT
neil patrick harris
I once had dreams of becoming an Emmy-Winning actress, but thanks to a traumatizing audition for a middle school drama club and being roughly a few inches shy of Snooki-esque shortness, those dreams never panned out. I’m happy to leave the acting to the professionals, and admire their work as a fan and critic. For this television-aholic, there’s nothing better than beholding a great actor who steals every frame of their scenes.

Here is a list of my favorite scene-stealers:

'Hawaii Five-O' Star Alex O'Loughlin Enters Rehab

March 4th, 2012 10:10am EST
Alex O'Loughlin
Hawaii Five-O actor Alex O'Loughlin is taking a break from filming the hit TV show to address his dependency on prescription drugs.

The Australian star, who plays police chief Steve McGarrett in the cop show reboot, has checked himself into rehab in order to wean himself off pain pills he has been taking following a recent shoulder injury.

He will take a break from the show to focus on his recovery, but is expected to rejoin the cast once his rehab stint is concluded.

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'I Helu Pu' (2.16)

February 14th, 2012 3:10am EST
Hawaii Five-O
Hawaii Five-0 does its damnedest to break its formula this week, but that doesn't invigorate the show as much as you might think. Quite the opposite: it actually does a little damage.

As we start, Lori Weston's got a lot of blood on her hands...literally. She walks out of the bathroom and we find out that she's in a hospital, asking after Steve and getting in trouble with Lieutenant Governor Denning for causing an international incident. Denning reminds us that he assigned her to this task force, so perhaps he'll end up reassigning her elsewhere.

Eighteen hours earlier, everything i...

After some reruns, Hawaii Five-0 finally brings us a new episode. This one involves a law enforcement officer who meets a bloody end in an airplane bathroom. Not the way I'd want to go out.

Upon arriving at the crime scene, Danny realizes that he knew the victim, U.S. Marshal Dave Collins. Chin reports that there are two missing passengers - the felon Dave was transporting, Sal Painter (that's Sons of Anarchy's Theo Rossi) and another man posing as Rick McGuire. Five-0 immediately moves to talk to the key witness against Sal, Holly Malone (White Collar's Gloria Votsis), who tips th...

January 17th, 2012 2:04am EST
Hawaii Five-O
After last week's underwhelming Hawaii Five-0, we finally find out who Shelburne is...and that's pretty much it.

We get a flashback to 1992, where Steve is having a talk with his father (William Sadler, if you forgot). Dad is sending Steve and Mary Ann back to the mainland. "It's not safe for you here anymore," he says. This doesn't go over well with teenage Steve, but present-day Steve totally gets it. And is totally following Joe, until he gets a call about a delivery truck being hit. What got stolen? Something that needed to be snuck past Customs.

January 3rd, 2012 2:07am EST
Hawaii Five-O
This week's Hawaii Five-0 wins for "Most O's in an Episode Title." Unfortunately, that's about all it wins, as it's a rather lackluster return for a generally great show.

Who would hire a professional killer to off a teenage girl? That's the question of the week when Emily Winter is discovered deceased. Her father (Clayton Norcross) has no idea why his daughter would be targeted, but tells Steve that she stole a check from him and wrote it out for five thousand dollars. We discover that this was in order to help her friend Karen (Courtney Coleman), who's being blackmailed over her...

'Hawaii Five-0' Producer Apologizes For Offending World War II Veterans

December 14th, 2011 10:36pm EST
Hawaii Five-O
TV bosses behind hit show Hawaii Five-O have apologized to American World War II veterans for filming an upcoming episode during their Pearl Harbor anniversary tribute last week.

Dozens of Pearl Harbor survivors and military officials congregated at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu last week to remember the lives lost during the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian naval base in 1941.

However, the group became enraged when a Hawaii Five-0 film crew neglected to alter its shooting schedule out of respect for the deceased and instead forged ahead with filming a scene in ...

We've come to Hawaii Five-0's fall finale, and it encapsulates the season to date: perhaps not remarkable, but watchable, and leaving us wondering where it's all going.

When a dead body (who later turns out to be quite alive) is found inside an abandoned bunker, it's up to our heroes to close the case and still make it to Chin's wedding. This involves live grenades, a perp dumpster diving, and a run-in with newly-promoted Captain Fryer (Tom Sizemore). The man they found is Fryer's prime suspect in the murder of Bridgett Turner. His wife (that's NYPD Blue's Gail O'Grady) has no idea...

When I was a kid, I never liked school buses. This week's Hawaii Five-0 reminds me of that feeling - although thankfully I was never kidnapped by a drug cartel.

Do you recognize the shooter from the opening teaser? You should. That's Aimee Garcia. She's currently also playing Jamie Batista on Dexter. Here she's working for a drug cartel that would like its cocaine back. Her co-conspirator is played by Rick Gomez, who just appeared on Burn Notice as a kidnap victim. They're just two of the many familiar faces that populate this action-packed episode.

This week's Hawaii Five-0 feels like a sweeps episode. Our hero held at gunpoint by a former friend and in need of rescue? Definite attention-getter. Thankfully, "Ki'ilua" doesn't stop there, keeping hold of us through the hour.

Before we get to that point, though, we must deal with the murder of investigative reporter Bethany Morris (Kaytlin Borgen), who gets yanked out from under her bed like Maggie Grace in Taken. The obvious question is "What was she working on that got her killed?" Seems Bethany was a whistleblower poking her nose around in corporate business. Nothing you have...

Fans React To Bradley Cooper Being Named 'Sexiest Man Alive'

Fans are having interesting reactions to People Magazine's selection of Bradley Cooper as Sexiest Man Alive. Some good and some confused. I'm hearing talk of a facebook group requesting a recall of the winner. Some actors have having their fans go into overdrive posting on the internet how People got it wrong. Here are some possible candidates should People do a California recall on Bradley Cooper:

Michael Fassbender: Cooper is cute but Fassbender is like Adonis! Ironically, they got the wrong Cooper. Fassbender is Cooper in German. Maybe its a mix up?

An admission: I love the Fast & Furious films. So give me Hawaii Five-0 taking after the Fast & Furious films, and I'm a happy girl.

The show opens big, with Honolulu Police cruisers trying to catch a speedy flame-red set of wheels and finding a whole host of beautiful cars inside locked shipping containers. One of them has a dead body sans fingerprints in the trunk. This allows us to use Hawaii's car culture as the episode's backdrop. (It also means Lauren German gets primped as if she's trying to channel Michelle Rodriguez - if Rodriguez's Letty had driven a bait car.) There are ...

What do you do when a plane with a corpse in it crashes down? You call the best cops in Hawaii and hope they can make sense of it. Welcome to Hawaii Five-0.

That is, when they're not watching B-movies in Danny's new dive of an apartment. In all honesty, I think Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin would do great if Mystery Science Theater 3000 ever came back. Their banter belongs on a Rifftrax.

Back to the case: the corpse belongs to an ICE agent. That's how we meet Jeff Morrison (Masi Oka's former Heroes costar Greg Grunberg), who was the deceased lady's boss. Jeff is taking the situati...

Dear Television: please stop feeling compelled to do 'theme' episodes for holidays.

Rarely are holiday-related episodes that good; most of them don't have much substance to them beyond the gimmick of whatever special date they're centered around. (A rare exception was NBC's Life, which had a second season episode entitled "Black Friday," but that episode was good because it was well-written and acted, not necessarily because of any particular festive addition.) This week's Hawaii Five-0 started by evoking reminders of The Blair Witch Project and didn't really improve from there.

When a beloved college volleyball coach (Joe Toro) gets killed in his own locker room, Five-0 is on the case. The coach was living in the guest house of an affluent couple, Karl and Trisha Joyner (Rob Duval and Meredith Monroe), which gives Danny room to gripe about being underpaid and over-shot at.

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's "name that guest star" week on Hawaii Five-O. Did you spot all the familiar faces? Unfortunately, they don't make up for the underlying flaws that are appearing to be common to this season.

A faux-Jaws opening leads us to discovering the hand of Blake Spencer, a salvage diver. (If you want to see my reaction to the resulting scene in Max's office, just watch Steve's face.) Into The Blue this is not (except for the mutual presence of Scott Caan).

Steve and Danny are soon learning about a mysterious next gig that may be the reason Blake ended up in pieces....

Music Review: 'Hawaii Five-O' Soundtrack

October 10th, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Hawaii Five-O
TV soundtracks can be ways to discover new music, or just for a studio to cash in on a hot property. CBS Music's Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs From The Television Series is a bit of both.

It wouldn't be the first time that a soundtrack has come out for sheer merchandising purposes. There are a lot of those, where songs clearly end up in a TV show just to push a single or so that a CD can be made up later. Heck, even some of the soundtracks that come out after a season aren't very good.

Hawaii Five-O's disc curiously takes the opposite tack from most soundtracks: the CD is billed on Amaz...

Thanks to this week's Hawaii Five-O, I've found another reason to dislike camping: you just might find a corpse in the tent. Not cool, show. Not cool at all.

Steve and Commander White (Terry O'Quinn) - who's put in for a transfer to Pearl Harbor - have their bonding session broken up by this development - the body is that of a SEAL named Clay Garcia. Max tells Steve that the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but White and Garcia's wife Marissa (Sarah Roemer) aren't so sure. Looking over the evidence again (after Steve needles him into doing so), Max declares that G...
