Tony Shalhoub Joins The Cast Of Showtime's 'Nurse Jackie'

8/20/2014 11:52pm EDT
Tony Shalhoub
Tony Shalhoub has landed a recurring role and joined the cast of Showtime's dark comedy Nurse Jackie.

The former "Monk" star will play an ER doctor named Bernard Prince on the show, the pay TV network announced on Wednesday.

Shalhoub's character replaces that of star Peter Facinelli, who will not return to the series for the upcoming seventh season.

According to Variety, Shalhoub's character will have a "great bedside manner" and work well with boss Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith). He'll also "offer Jackie (Edie Falco) something she desperately needs -- a friend."

"Nurse Jackie has...

Another New TV Series Cancelled: 'We Are Men' Axed After 2 Episodes

10/10/2013 8:20am EDT
We Are Men
Poor ratings has resulted in another TV cancellation for the 2013-14 season. "We Are Men" has been pulled from the air after just two episodes.

Critics haven't been kind to the show, which stars Jerry O'Connell, Tony Shalhoub, Chris Smith and Kal Penn, calling it "lazy" and "outdated" when it premiered last month.

The comedy centered on four single guys living in a short-term apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their failed romances.

O'Connell confirmed the cancellation on Twitter, writing: "We Are Men cancelled. What a fun ride. Love those guys."

The CBS show is th...

Gabriel Macht: The Smartest Actor On Television

12/1/2011 11:00am EST
Gabriel Macht is a genius.

It isn't in the conventional sense. Measuring him by his IQ - whatever that may be - wouldn't do him justice. Neither would examining his lengthy filmography of over twenty years. Yet spend a few minutes in his company, and it becomes quickly apparent that he is brilliant. It's in his verbal acuity, which would make many professional writers envious. It's in the thought he gives to even the most casual of conversations. He's just plain smarter than you or me.

He's not the type to need to prove that to anyone. Yet with the success of USA Network's original...

Summer Lovin': Two New Summer Shows To Love

8/31/2011 3:00pm EDT
There’s nothing I love more than being swept off my pop culture-lovin’ feet by a new television series. For this television-aholic, it feels like being given an invitation to an exhilarating alternate reality, and I have this lovin' feeling for two summer shows. I worship them so much that I’m not even obsessing about the impending start of the fall season (Kidding, less than three weeks, people!).

Here are two shows that I’m head-over-heels for. One is a sophisticated legal drama set in the core of the Big Apple, another is a guilty-pleasure reality show about a real basketball wife.

Paul Newman Tribute Planned for 'Cars 2'

3/2/2011 10:04pm EST
The Cars sequel will feature a touching tribute to late movie icon Paul Newman, who voiced the role of Doc Hudson in the 2006 original.

Newman's car character will not appear in the new movie, but Newman and Doc will be honored, according to director John Lasseter.

He tells the Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames blog, "We have a lovely tribute to Paul in the movie, but we didn't feel it would be right to include him or the character."

Newman's Hudson was a former champion racecar before a terrible accident ended its career. He became a doctor, life coach and elder of Radiator Springs - the for...

2010 Emmys: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

8/28/2010 1:00pm EDT
2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.


'Glee,' HBO's 'The Pacific' Land Massive Emmy Nominations

7/8/2010 10:26am EDT
Hit TV musical "Glee" is set to be the toast of the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards after landing a massive 19 nominations.

The comedy about a group of high school students in a choir club will fight for the Outstanding TV Comedy prize against "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Modern Family," "Nurse Jackie," "The Office" and "30 Rock," which has taken home the title for the last three years.

"Glee's" leading stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele have been nominated in the male and female categories for the outstanding comedy actor awards, while their co-star Chris Colfer has received a best supporting...

Puppies & More On 'Monk'

11/2/2009 2:19pm EST
Mr. Monk is not having an easy few weeks. First Sharona returned and opened his heart up all over again, a reminder of his past and how far he's come, and last week he made a best friend only to lose her. Sniff sniff. And who cares if that best friend is just a cute dog? Any dog owner was probably bawling by the end of the "Monk" episode, because even an OCD anxiety ball like Monk could be won over by a pair of sweet big eyes and a little paw.

A pretty girl like Amanda is sleeping over at her new boyfriend's house, and she coos at his nice Australian Shepherd dog. She goes to cook him b...

'Monk' Recap: Sharona Returns

10/27/2009 2:00pm EDT
It has been so long since "Monk" was full of deep, poignant emotion, but it's no surprise that it hit the audience with an emotional punch due to Sharona's return on the show last week. Sharona, for those of you just tuning in, was Monk's original nurse/assistant for the first few seasons. She was replaced abruptly by Natalie, and there are some fans who still believe the show has never been the same without her. I'm included among those fans. I still love the show, but there was a fire and an attitude that Sharona added to the cast which has been missing. It was back at full power in "Mr. ...

'Monk' Recap: 'Mr. Monk And The Voodoo Curse'

9/28/2009 1:20pm EDT
Last week's episode of "Monk" was one of the best we've seen for several seasons now, which was both a surprise and a delight. The case was interesting, the facts took some time to work together, there was a high speed chase, and Natalie lost her freaking mind. Monk even hugged her willingly! It looks like a voodoo curse was put on this show, the positive kind.

"Mr. Monk and the Voodoo Curse" starts out with a little league team practicing in a park. One of the hitters, a little boy, keeps trying and failing to hit the ball. His patient coach eggs him on, and politely chats with an elder...

'Monk' Recap: 'Mr. Monk and the Critic'

9/21/2009 8:21am EDT
Last week's episode of "Monk" was one of those rare occurrences when it wasn't about whodunit, but rather about how they would prove it. The 'who' became pretty obvious early on, but the 'how' is the real question. It involved Natalie being even more annoying than usual, and unfortunately now that she was proven right she'll probably continue to be in weeks to come. Anyone else still miss Sharona? It's been so many seasons but her guest starring at the end of this final season is so exciting.

Monk and Natalie are out in the community theater because Natalie's daughter Julie has a role i...

The 61st Emmy Awards: Who Should Win And Who Will Win

9/18/2009 3:44pm EDT
Neil Patrick Harris
You may have forgotten since there is about a 47-month lull between the nomination announcements and the actual awards ceremony, but the Primetime Emmy Awards are coming to your living room on Sunday evening with everybody’s favorite human being, Neil Patrick Harris, serving as host for the evening.

Hopefully, the choice of somebody known for being funny and having talents that extend beyond being able to sit still for a perfect haircut and remembering the names of contestants will show a marked improvement in the quality of the ceremony with the return to Emmy ceremonies of yore where b...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk Takes the Stand

9/14/2009 7:45am EDT
Now fans of "Monk" have seen the obsessive compulsive detective solve over a hundred cases now, but rarely has anyone questioned his methods during a court procedure. The show usually ends once Monk solves the case and the murderer gets taken away, and then we completely miss the next stage of the legal system with the judge and the jury and the verdict. Now it seems that Monk would have to regularly testify in court to his findings, but last week's episode was the first time we saw it happen. It is just as awful as you might expect, so you have to wonder ... how did Monk put away all those...

'Monk' Recap: 'Monk Is One Strange Duck'

8/24/2009 2:08pm EDT
Monk Recap
Even after eight seasons, the theme song of "Monk" is still so fitting and amusing. It is a jungle out there, and poor Monk is all alone. Last week's episode was rather cute, with Monk meeting a whole new group of people he has no ability to connect with. That's okay though, because they can't really connect to anyone.

Monk and Natalie took the weekend off to visit some of her friends, and apparently he was too uncomfortable to speak to any of them. Their car breaks down and they're stuck in the desert for a little while. Monk sees a UFO that night, and as expected, it freaks him out. H...

'Monk' Recap: 'Mr. Monk and the Foreign Man'

8/17/2009 10:56am EDT
Hey, did you know that twelve years ago Trudy Monk died in a car explosion and no one has been arrested for it yet? Any fan of the show "Monk" certainly knows this fact, since it has been bludgeoned into our head since day one. Trudy was the light of Monk's life! Without her he fell to pieces and lost everything! Twelve years have gone by and it is still the center point of his character, but the good thing is to know that they promised her case will be resolved by the end of this season. I wonder sometimes if they waited to solve it because they didn't know how to write Monk without the gu...

'Monk' Is Back For Its Final Season On USA

8/10/2009 11:26am EDT
It's official, the last season of "Monk" has premiered and now there are just 15 more episodes left until the end of this Emmy-winning comedy. It's a bittersweet kind of realization, although by now the show really has worn out some of its welcome. It was still one of the most successful shows on USA and paved their way for the 'Characters Welcome' angle ... because there is no character quite like Adrian Monk.

This episode guest stars Elizabeth Perkins from "Weeds," and her character Christine has plenty of Celia-like traits to her. The show starts with Monk and Natalie waiting in a li...

Tony Shalhoub Talks About 'Monk's' Final Season

8/6/2009 10:11am EDT
In one of the smartest moves a television show can make, the upcoming eighth season of "Monk" will be its last, ending its popular run on a high note. In a Q&A with Golden Globe, Emmy, and SAG award winner Tony Shalhoub, the actor fielded questions about the final season and the impact "Monk" has had on both television history and culture.

Shalhoub stated, "We certainly don't want to go too long and have the quality start to wane and just limp to the finish line. We want to go out while we feel really that we're doing great work and delivering really strong episodes. We want to go ou...

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

7/16/2009 3:17pm EDT
How I Met Your Mother
To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...

Move Over NBC, USA Is Stealing Your Glory

7/10/2009 12:02pm EDT
In the world of television, the big networks - NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX - are typically considered to be the "A" team, or the major leaguers of TV stations. Now they have a bit of competition.

The network we are most confused by is NBC. NBC used to be a ratings powerhouse with its "Must See TV" marketing campaigns. Weeknights were appointment television nights for millions of viewers tuning in first in the genesis of it all, the 1980s with Hill Street Blues, The Cosby Show, Cheers, and LA Law. The 1990s came in strong with ER, Friends, Frasier, Mad About You, Seinfeld, and the last of...

TV Honorees That Don't Deserve Recognition At The Emmy Awards

6/9/2009 10:12am EDT
Emmy Awards
Nominations for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday, July 16. The Emmy Awards are a bit like the Gold Glove Award in baseball: There's no apparent reason behind the process of selecting recipients, and once you make the short list you're virtually guaranteed a spot for life.

Many blame the Television Academy's awkward way of determining television's best for the pallid variance between what's actually good and what the nomination list purports. Academy members (terribly busy producers, writers, directors and actors) are sent scant screeners by agents representin...

Bitty Schram Returns To Guest Star In Final Season Of 'Monk'

3/25/2009 8:48am EDT
USA Network has announced that original show cast member Bitty Schram will guest-star in an episode of the eighth and final season of the critically acclaimed original series Monk.

The last season of the hit show, which stars Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG winner Tony Shalhoub, started production this week in Los Angeles and will debut this summer.

Schram co-starred on the show from its inception as Monk's beloved nurse and "Girl Friday" sidekick, Sharona Fleming. During season three, her character moved back to New Jersey with her son to re-marry her ex-husband.

"We couldn't th...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk Fights City Hall

2/25/2009 1:54pm EST
When you remember that Trudy Monk has been dead for eleven years, it starts to make Adrian Monk a little less sympathetic and a little crazier.

Then again there are people who never get over their spouses, and Monk has a tendency to obsess over things (understatement of the year) so it makes sense. Last week's episode of "Monk" was the finale of season seven, and now it is just a matter of time before season eight begins and the show officially ends. That thought is more depressing than Monk never finding Trudy's killer, so let's move on.

In "Mr. Monk Fights City Hall," Monk can'...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk And The Magician

2/17/2009 9:10am EST
The seventh season of "Monk" is rounding down now with only one more episode left to go, and then the eighth will be the final season of this phenomenally charming show. Thinking about it ending is too depressing, so instead let's talk about the newest episode, 'Mr. Monk and the Magician.' A secondary character Monk has come to know and somewhat loath/love dies, and it is up to Monk to solve the case for his friend.

Kevin (Jarrad Paul) is Monk's annoying neighbor who just never shuts up, and he has appeared in several episodes of the show before this one. He is a sweet tempered ...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door

1/26/2009 9:51am EST
Following up an episode where Adrian Monk is a jerk the entire time, the newest one brings out the sweetest - and most painful - side of everyone's favorite obsessive compulsive detective. In the past seven seasons, Monk has met a great deal of people, some who used him for their own means or pretended to be his friend for nefarious purposes. Other than those who surround him (Natalie, Stottlemeyer, Disher), he has no one in his life, and even those friends do use him for solving cases or their livelihoods. Monk finally meets someone who might just love him for him ... and can't believe in ...

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk on Wheels

1/19/2009 11:07am EST
There are times when Adrian Monk goes too far, or rather that the show "Monk" lets him go too far. He is a quirky and disturbed character, but generally very likable and sympathetic. Usually if he does something callous or inconsiderate, especially to his assistant Natalie, it is played for laughs. In the last episode, "Mr. Monk on Wheels," he pushes her one step too far and walks over the edge of weirdly funny to straight out jerk. Monk was not enjoyable to watch, but the show got back on track after acknowledging what a fine line the writers have to walk between 'eccentric' and 'annoying....

'Monk' Recap: Mr. Monk's Other Brother

1/14/2009 11:16am EST
It is time to watch the last of "Monk" season seven and mournfully await the last season beginning in the summer. It really is time for the show to end; better now than years down the line when it is unwelcome. Still, what will everyone do without the best detective in the world?

There's one person who needs Adrian Monk this week, and that is Jack Monk Jr. That's right, Monk has a little half-brother played by Steve Zahn who is a convict escaped from prison. He is wanted for the murder of a female prison guard, but he swears he did not do it. Zahn plays much the same role as he always...
