Maureen McCormick Signs Copies of Her New Book
Maureen McCormick will forever be known as “Marcia Brady” to most of the television-watching public but her talents reach much further than just 70s sitcom sister. She’s a songwriter, a singer, she’s worked in musical theater and she became a reality television show favorite thanks to her appearances on VH-1’s Celebrity Fit Club (where she won in 2007) and two CMT shows, “Gone Country” (2008) and its spin-off “Outsider’s Inn”(2008).

Still 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'

June 15th, 2011 6:16pm EDT
Thank goodness season six of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” premiered on Sunday evening, filling the void of what otherwise would have been a moment without the most under-talented, over-exposed family in television clambering desperately for attention. Ryan Seacrest and the other kind folks at E! have ensured another fun-filled summer of Kim and…what are the rest of their names again?

This family has definitely clawed its way into the public conscious, but with no identifiable skill set between the ten of them and a series of shameless, money-grubbing product endorsements, they have c...

Christopher Knight
Actor and reality TV star Christopher Knight has lashed out at the "lazy" journalism that incorrectly linked him to an assault and battery case.

The Brady Bunch star was caught up in a legal spat after he was falsely accused of an attack on an accountant earlier this week - but the reports had the wrong Chris Knight.

It’s quite hard to narrow down the best TV Christmas episodes ever. To help accommodate this dilemma, I am limiting myself to three classic TV specials – cartoons, variety shows, what have you. The rest will be regular TV segments from some of your favorite series. Here, in my opinion, are my favorite Christmas episodes of all time. Are they the best? Not necessarily. With a certain degree of schmaltz, you can’t always expect the best. In descending order:

How 'Modern Family' Is Saving The Family Sitcom

January 16th, 2010 10:15am EST
Modern Family
This article hopefully will serve as an adequate mea culpa. In a fall article we mentioned that 'Modern Family' was weak, formulaic, and full of hyperbolic stereotypes. In short, not worth staying on the ABC schedule. It did not take the recent Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Series- Musical or Comedy to change our view.

Thanks to a day off and time to kill on Hulu, we watched the second episode of the show. Needless to say, lunch was skipped, all remaining episodes were viewed, and we realized how unrepresentative a pilot can be. Now we are such unwavering fans of the show th...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Hits the Road

September 25th, 2009 2:03pm EDT
There were a lot of hits on last night's episode of Sunny -the gang hit the road, Mac hit a cyclist with a beer bottle, and Dee hit Mac with a jar full of urine.

It all started with Frank's seemingly simple idea to take a road trip to the Grand Canyon, but like every plan these characters come up with, that idea quickly went to hell. It wasn't too difficult to predict that the gang would never make it out of Philly, but that didn't make the ride any less hilarious.

The gang was probably less than a mile from the bar before things started unraveling. Annoyed by a slow cyclist in fron...

But hey, it was a joke," wrote McCormick on her blog on Fancast.

Maureen McCormick Thankful Barry Williams Didn't Take Her Virginity

October 14th, 2008 4:33pm EDT
Maureen McCormick
Former child actress Maureen McCormick is thankful she didn't lose her virginity to Brady Bunch co-star Barry Williams - because she's convinced the tryst with her on-screen brother would have sent her spiralling into a deeper depression.

McCormick speaks candidly about her long-running battle with drugs and depression in her forthcoming book Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice.

The Most Underrated & Overrated Influential TV Shows

August 22nd, 2008 9:28am EDT
Miami Vice
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and on television it often appears to be the only form of creativity. Yes, ever since Milton Berle first stole a joke for "Texaco Star Theatre", TV has been a wild west of borrowing material and copying good ideas until they've become completely stale. Many of these ideas were so good, in fact, that their resonance is still felt today, and that's when a show crosses over from being copied to being influential.

Over the years, many shows have been considered influential. From "The Dick Van Dyke Show" first showing both the home and office l...

'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!' & Other Memorable TV Quotes

July 14th, 2008 8:45am EDT
When the television became available in the early 20th century, who would have ever thought it could became such a vital part of pop culture and media coverage? These days the "Boob Tube" still holds power over even the most casual of viewers with its advertising campaigns and storytelling prime time shows.

The television is used to entertain as well as inform, and over the years thousands of shows were created to catch the attention of the public. Only so many shows are able to grab the love and approval of audiences, and even less than that stay memorable after years pass on. Here a...
