'Supernatural' 7.19 Recap: The Odds Aren't Ever In Their Favor

4/21/2012 8:30am EDT
ackles and padalecki
It’s probably inappropriate if I say I’d like to be a “fancy lady.” The moniker makes it seem alluring, like a woman who wears the finest dresses detailed with gold buttons and a bustle and rides side-saddle. It sounds like the heroine in Keira Knightley’s next movie. Only an old-timey ghost on “Supernatural” could make the world’s oldest profession sound romantic and cool.

“Of Grave Importance” is a decent installment that finally reunites Bobby’s ghost with the Sam and Dean.

The episode begins, not with the massacres of teenagers, but with Dean stress-eating on the hood of their l...

Susan Lucci of All My Children
It's going to be a miserable Thanksgiving holiday for fans of beloved soaps All My Children and One Life To Live - plans to resurrect the long-running TV shows online have been scrapped.

All My Children wrapped up its 41-year run in September and One Life to Live will shut down in January - but fans were hoping both soaps would live on as web series.

However, bosses at Hollywood production company Prospect Park have abandoned plans for an online-only resurrection of the shows, despite signing deals with many leading cast members.

Prospect Park boss Jeff Kwatinetz says, "In the end, the c...

Bosses at production company Prospect Park announced earlier this year that they would make new episodes of the cancelled daytime series for an online TV network. However, fans were let down when the plans were scrapped, amid rumors Lucci had refused to commit to the project.

Today sees the final hour of Spooks, the BBC's long-running and critically acclaimed espionage drama. After ten series and almost a decade on the air, the show signs off after its 85th episode on BBC One at 9 PM tonight.

The show first aired on May 13, 2002, telling the stories of a crack team of agents for Britain's elite spy agency MI5. It rose to become an institution of British TV, its ten series (seasons) virtually unheard of for a serial drama and more than that of other feted shows like Waking The Dead and Wire In The Blood.

Along the way, it showcased a number of talented actors...

Veteran actress Susan Lucci has taken aim at ABC chief Brian Frons in her new autobiography for axing legendary soap opera All My Children.

TV bosses announced earlier this year that the longrunning beloved show would come to an end later this month as part of a cost-cutting initiative.

One Life To Live
After last week’s announcement by ABC Daytime about the cancellation of long running and beloved soaps, 'All My Children' (AMC) and 'One Life to Live' (OLTL), I posted an article to the soap fans on my site, Red Carpet Closet entitled: 'Soap Fans, What the Heck Happened?' Well, they came out in droves and I heard them loud and clear. It is no secret that fans of the genre are notoriously supportive of the shows and the actors. So how did such a rapid decline in the ratings happen? One name kept coming up again and again as a reason for their demise: Brian Frons, president of Daytime f...

Kelly Ripa Heartbroken Over 'All My Children' Axe

4/15/2011 8:25am EDT
Kelly Ripa
Actress-turned-TV personality Kelly Ripa is devastated about the cancellation of her former show All My Children, calling the shock axe "like losing a member of your family."

The blonde beauty was a series regular from 1990 until 2002 and met her husband Mark Consuelos on the long-running series, after he joined the drama in 1995. They have since had three children together. TV bosses at ABC announced on Thursday that the show, along with One Life to Live, would not be renewed - and Ripa admits she's sad about the cancellation, as the series holds so many fond memories for her.

Lea Michele
Matthew Morrison's fiancée Chrishell Stause called off their engagement after suspecting the actor was cheating on her with his Broadway pal Lea Michele.

The 31-year-old actor, who now co-stars with Michele in hit TV show Glee, proposed to All My Children star Stause in 2006 after dating for two-and-a-half years. However, their romance hit a stumbling block in June, 2007 when tabloid reports suggested Morrison was enjoying a fling with Michele.

The pair both dismissed claims of a romance, and while Stause insists it was a "false rumor," she admits Morrison did little to calm her fears o...

Josh Duhamel would love to revisit his soap opera roots - because he enjoyed his stint on "All My Children" so much. The "Transformers" star got his big break playing con artist Leo du Pres on the daytime program from 1999 to 2002, and even won a Daytime Emmy for Best Supporting Actor before his character was killed off.

But he insists he isn't too famous to revisit the small screen - especially because his on-screen demise was left open-ended.

He tells radio station 104.3 MYfm, "You know what? I would love to do that (return), actually. I would.

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six

Dancing With The Stars
It was a night filled with diversity on Dancing With The Stars. Almost everyone performed a different type of dance, Michael Flatly, the Lord of the Dance, took Len's position for the night as a guest judge, and all the stars joined together to coordinate a hip hop routine.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke were the first to take the floor, performing a Viennese waltz. Maurice was skeptical on dancing a ballroom-esque number because he had not done so since week one of the competition. He claimed his mind was on overload. He didn't get too bad critiques, but he did wind up with t...

After Misty May's painful farewell, no one was eliminated last week on Dancing With The Stars. However, the competition wasn't going to take last week's votes and scores lightly. Everything carried over from last week, making people like Rocco DiSpirito work even harder for a chance to dance another day.

This week the stars were assigned to dance either the tango or the samba and were judged accordingly. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was cracking down this week claiming that by week four of the competition, people needed to start taking critiques and the dances seriously.
