'NCIS' Recap: Legend Part 1

April 29th, 2009 11:12am EDT
NCIS
The episode opens on the unfortunate new NCIS spin off crew, in a two episode effort to introduce to you the spin-off of a spin-off… so, really the Bellisario version Law and Order: Criminal Intent or CSI: New York… in other words, practically doomed to fail from the start. After the credits roll we move back to DC, with Tony and McGee in a typical banter. With Ziva taking a private call, it can only be assumed it is setting up for her leaving the country later in the season. Why? Any time music is cued on Los Angeles is a dreaded place. The last time the crew was there former director...

TV's Best Crime Shows In Transition

January 22nd, 2009 11:42am EST
CSI
Television's best crime show, CSI, enters a new era Thursday night as the first episode of the post-Grissom era. William Petersen had appeared in all but two of the episodes since first airing in 2000. CSI actually got its start on Friday nights, but was moved to Thursdays after Survivor when it started gaining some notice. This was back when Survivor was the hot new sensation, and naturally the viewers stuck around to fall in love with CSI.

The show changed the landscape of crime television. Now you can find a miscellaneous crime drama on every night of the week, including...

Diddy To Make Guest Appearance On 'CSI: Miami'

November 18th, 2008 4:05pm EST
Diddy
NEW YORK (AP) - Sean "Diddy" Combs is becoming a prosecutor - at least on television. CBS says the rapper has agreed to a two-episode appearance on "CSI: Miami."

The network says Combs will portray a prosecutor who doesn't get along with police Lt. Horatio Caine, played by David Caruso. CBS said Tuesday that Combs' episodes will probably air in mid- to late winter.

Combs drew praise for his role in the ABC movie "A Raisin in the Sun."

Another rap artist, Nelly, has had a recurring role this season in "CSI: New York."

Not Just On TV Anymore: Favorite Series Are Now Just A Click Away

September 29th, 2008 11:01am EDT
30 Rock
Not everyone has TiVo. As nice as it would be to come home late from work or class and be able to flip on 30 Rock or SportsCenter even though they aired hours before, some do not have that luxury. For some, if a show is missed, it is gone forever. The luckless viewer is resigned to hope for repeat airings or, for those most unfortunate, future syndication. However, a new day has dawned for those left in TiVo's shadow.

Now, many of the major broadcast and cable networks have engaged the possibilities of integrated marketing. With the increasing popularity of the Internet and the prolife...

Our Favorite TV Ensembles

June 12th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Lost
An ensemble cast is a group of actors in which each character/actor is assigned an equal level of importance to the story. Sometimes even if there is an established "main character," a show can be considered an ensemble because individuals are treated with the same care and development as everyone else on the show.

This sort of cast style gives the audience a chance to connect with several different characters rather than just one; if a viewer does not like one of the characters or cannot relate to them, there will be several more to choose from. It creates very broad storylines and v...

CBS Adds New Night Of Comedy, Not Much Else For 2008-09 Season

May 15th, 2008 10:59am EDT
New Adventures of Old Christine
Every year, the upfront presentations have a different theme. Ok, so that's not always the case, but it would be pretty cool if it was, right? This year, however, there definitely seems to be a theme emerging. NBC's presentation in April, which seemed to be heralding in an era of change, proved to be a red herring. As this week has shown us, the theme this year is not change. It is stability.

For CBS, leader in overall viewers for the past several seasons (although it is being challenged by Fox in that category this year), sticking with the status quo makes sense. Due to that fac...

Where Are They Now: The Cast Of 'Family Ties'

April 8th, 2008 1:00pm EDT
Family Ties
Family Ties, a wildly popular 80's show about an Ohio family, originally premiered on NBC Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. in 1982. Steve and Elyse Keaton (Michael Gross, Meredith Baxter-Birney) were products of the 60's love and peace hippie movement. They were smart and professional; Elyse was an architect and Steve was in public television. Their politics were liberal.

Oddly enough, their offspring included the ultra-conservative Alex (Michael J. Fox), who was into all things Wall Street and Republican, and Mallory (Justine Bateman), who was an airhead into designer jeans and boys who were ...
