Car Crash Victim Sues Megan Mullally

February 19th, 2011 11:30am EST
Megan Mullally
Megan Mullally is facing a lawsuit for allegedly driving through a red light and crashing into another car in 2009.

Wendy Kim claims her Mercedes incurred almost $15,000 worth of damage from the accident, in which both women sustained minor injuries.

Kim has now filed legal documents at Los Angeles Superior Court demanding Mullally pays for the repair costs, but so far the actress has refused because she insists she is innocent of any wrongdoing.

Mullally claims the traffic light was yellow when she drove through it and that Kim's "negligence" resulted in the crash, reports TMZ.com.

Returning Mid-Season Shows: What's Worth Watching?

January 4th, 2011 12:00pm EST
The new 'American Idol'
We’ve already been over what new shows are premiering mid-season. There are lots of returning favorites as well, and some promise to be some of this year’s highest-rated programs. Others are sure to be stinkers. Here’s our guide to what’s returning, and what’s worth watching.

‘V’ – ABC, Jan. 4

Starring Elizabeth Mitchell (‘LOST’) as FBI agent Erica Evans and Morena Baccarin as the leader of the visitors, this season kicks off after a long hiatus. ABC calls it “a show we’d like to run as uninterrupted as possible.” Time will tell if the long wait has dented the show’s audience. Anyo...

Are Film Remakes Worth The Risk?

October 8th, 2009 10:37am EDT
Fame
In these tough economic times, film studios are producing more and more remakes. Though some cite the financial insecurity of the viewing public, many simply argue that there is just no originality anymore, and why take a risk on a "new" idea when you can simply bring back what has since become a cult classic?

All films can be considered risks, however, especially when "date night" at the movies takes a middle class couple's expendable income. Not one of the top 10 films at the box office this summer was a remake. Perhaps that is because these new-old movies have versions sitting on Blo...

Can The Remake Of 'Fame' Reinvent Itself Or Surpasses Its Predecessor?

September 23rd, 2009 10:15am EDT
Fame
There are a lot of movies about the angst and the hope of high school, and even a few musicals set in that time period, but none of them were quite as devastating or as memorable as "Fame." The film came out in 1980 and is about the life of an ensemble cast of talented teenagers as they enroll in an extremely competitive performing arts high school. Only the best of the best get into the New York High School of Performing Arts, and those that do get in must prepare for four years of grueling practice and soul crushing criticism. The students learn that they must lean on one another and on a...

Pre-Season 2009 TV Report Card: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

September 21st, 2009 12:30pm EDT
Desperate Housewives
Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?

MAJOR NETWORKS

ABC: B

The Good: The dramas are what keep us coming back to ABC. Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, FlashForward, and V are worth looking forward to. The one comedy that stands out and may hold itself against NBC's stellar comedies, Modern Family, is worth a few episodes past the pilot.

The Bad: Dancing With The Stars is extremely popular, however sometimes too much of a ...

Check Out '30 Rock' Season 3 On DVD Sept. 22

September 20th, 2009 7:48am EDT
30 Rock
On the third season of "30 Rock," Liz Lemon tries to avoid jury duty by dressing as Princess Leia, Jenna stars in a biopic about Janis Joplin, and Steve Martin plays a fabulously wealthy agoraphobe. Liz increasingly yearns for a normal life while she navigates two doomed relationships, one with a little person, whom she initially mistakes for a child, and the other with a neighbor, who doesn't realize people have allowed him to skate through life because of his impossibly good looks.

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

March 7th, 2009 11:35am EST
Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

What To Watch In March? Spotlight On Mid-Season Shows

March 4th, 2009 9:37am EST
Cupid
Once upon a time in a magical land called Hollywood, harried and somewhat unkempt writers bit their nails down to the quick awaiting news on if their pilots would receive full season orders, be given solid "Nos," or worse: be relegated to the limbo that is "mid-season replacement" territory.

Such shows aren't guaranteed to air at all, particularly if the initial fall line-up (the shows that network executives felt had the most potential) succeeds. And if mid-season shows do get a shot after premature cancellations, there is no guarantee they will find an audience, considering so many ...

Megan Mullaly is 'Fame's' New Singing Teacher

February 23rd, 2009 1:21pm EST
Megan Mullally
Before High School Musical, there was a real musical high school. 1980's Fame showed the struggles of a class at the New York Academy of Performing Arts. This year, a remake will launch a whole new class and Megan Mullally will teach them how to sing.

"I play the singing teacher," Mullally said. "We sing at a karaoke bar so I have to get up and sing a song, 'You Took Advantage of Me' by Rodgers and Hart."

That scene in the movie will be a rare look at the TV and Broadway star performing for a bar full of drunk crooners. In real life, she can't rock the karaoke mic.

A Look At The Evolution Of The Web Series

September 10th, 2008 11:46am EDT
Chelsea Handler
It's pretty apparent that the emergence of original programming on the internet, debuting at only minute-and-a-half to three minute clips, was geared directly at the teenage set-- playing into the whole shortening attention span and need to get their entertainment from the same rectangular box that they get the research for their term papers and with which they network and communicate with friends. Web series, as they were deemed, didn't officially become an official part of new media until they began to gain widespread popularity with lonelygirl15, a video blog from a so-called teenage gir...

Spotlight On Movies That Became Musicals

August 28th, 2008 10:30am EDT
The Little Mermaid
Fans of movie musicals know that most of their favorites, like "Grease," "West Side Story," "The Sound of Music," and "Oklahoma!" were adapted from popular Broadway plays. However, the trend in recent years has been to flip that formula around by taking a big-screen hit and trying to turn it into a small-stage sensation.

Disney has had great success with its theatrical adaptations, starting in 1994 with the critically-acclaimed "Beauty and the Beast." The hits kept coming with stage productions of "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins," and, most recently, "The Little Mermaid."

Fifty-four percent of those who participated in a recent tvguide.com poll say they will not miss Rosie O’Donnell when she exits The View in June. A surprising statistic given that ratings have risen significantly – 17 percent – since O’Donnell joined the daytime talk show last September.

Forty-eight percent say that they would be opposed to The View adding a male voice to the panel, while 34 percent say it would depend on who the male co-host is.

Approximately one-third chose Megan Mullally to replace O’Donnell, with frequent View guest co-host Sherri Shepherd tied for second p...
