'Parenthood': The Best Show You're Not Watching

February 28th, 2012 1:10pm EST
parenthood cast
It’s not a stretch to say that while most Americans are struggling through the current economic crisis, Hollywood is battling its own creative recession as the industry continues to sink its money into remakes of old shows, superhero franchises and classic fairytales.

This is why it’s a crime against television that NBC’s “Parenthood” is so unacceptably under-watched and underappreciated. This cape-free show follows the lives of three generations of the tight-knit, wine-loving Braverman clan. With drama that's unflinchingly genuine, the show doesn’t just tug on the heartstrings, it downr...

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

October 14th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
dennings, behrs
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

NEW SHOWS

“2 Broke Girls” CBS Mondays 8:30 P.M. EST

“2 Broke Girls” is a snappy, odd couple sitcom about Max (“Thor’s” Kat Dennings), an uber-sarcastic and cynical waitress who takes in Caroline (Bet...

'Hawaii Five-O' Review: 'Kame'e' (2.03)

October 4th, 2011 2:09am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
Thanks to this week's Hawaii Five-O, I've found another reason to dislike camping: you just might find a corpse in the tent. Not cool, show. Not cool at all.

Steve and Commander White (Terry O'Quinn) - who's put in for a transfer to Pearl Harbor - have their bonding session broken up by this development - the body is that of a SEAL named Clay Garcia. Max tells Steve that the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but White and Garcia's wife Marissa (Sarah Roemer) aren't so sure. Looking over the evidence again (after Steve needles him into doing so), Max declares that G...

Notable 2010 Celebrity Deaths

December 31st, 2010 8:00am EST
2010 Celeb Deaths
Fortunately, 2010 wasn't a big one for celebrity deaths. In 2009, several notables died, including Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze and Farrah Fawcett.

May was a particularly bad month, in which stars such as Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper passed away.

Casey Johnson, Johnson & Johnson heiress and fiancee of reality star Tila Tequila, died January 4 from diabetic ketoacidosis.

"All My Children" patriarch James Mitchell died on January 22, weeks shy of his 90th birthday. The cause was chronic obstructive pulmonary disease complicated by pneumonia.

Samaire Armstrong's 'Dirty Sexy' Thigh-High Boots

Samaire Armstrong
Former "Dirty Sexy Money" star Samaire Armstrong showed up at the Art Mere Art Pere Night benefitting the Livestrong Foundation in Hollywood on Thursday wearing an eye-catching pair of black boots over her skinny jeans. Hot, hot, hot!

We haven't seen too much of the actress since her ABC series was canceled in 2009. She stars in the upcoming film "The Last Harbor."

The actress made headlines in 2008 ago after tackling "personal issues" in rehab. She was dropped from the ABC show but later rejoined the cast after cleaning up her act.

Familiar Faces In 'Parenthood' And Other Primetime Series

February 23rd, 2010 4:11pm EST
Parenthood
Throughout the Olympics, NBC has been heavily promoting their new show "Parenthood," which airs its first episode on March 2 at 10/9c. This premiere marks a return to form for the network (filling holes left by the Jay Leno mess) and the return of several familiar faces to primetime.

"Parenthood," based on the 1989 movie of the same name, is an hour-long dramedy featuring an ensemble cast led by Peter Krause of "Six Feet Under" and to a lesser extent "Dirty Sexy Money" fame and Lauren Graham in her first regular TV role since "Gilmore Girls" ended its seven year run in 2007. As fans of...

We'll Miss You 'Dirty Sexy Money'

July 18th, 2009 10:22am EDT
Dirty Sexy Money
Most of America is cutting corners these days - bringing lunch to work, cooking looking for happy hour specials, perusing the sale rack. But if there's one vestige of indulgence left, it is spying on the scandals and seductions of the Darling family of ABC's Dirty Sexy Money, which returns July 18.

The show was canceled in the spring, but the network was kind enough to burn off the remaining episodes, as it has already done this summer with the dearly departed Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone.

In the television landscape of reality competition shows and barely unscripted reality shows, ...

Alexis Jones Bridges Communication Gaps Between Men And Women

Alexis Jones
Alexis Jones is mostly known for her stint on Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs Favorites, and on her season she made it almost all the way to the end by playing with integrity and a sense of confidence that managed to be inspiring without being intimidating. Since her time on reality TV came to an end, Jones has spent much time traveling across the country and up to Canada on motivational speaking gigs, and she has also founded the non-profit "i am that girl", which, as a brand, is "chick empowerment with an edge." On May 31st 2009, Jones and her "i am that girl" co-horts threw what they hoped ...

TV Wish List for 2009

December 29th, 2008 12:37pm EST
True Blood
It is time to bid farewell to the television of 2008 and welcome 2009 with open arms, but let it be with a sweet, friendly warning. TV viewers are fickle. One day we'll love your show, and the next we'll hate it. Sometimes all you have to do is steer a little off course, or introduce an irritating character, and then we abandon you to the cold. Yet TV viewers can be fiercely loyal, sticking to a show through seasons of awful dialogue just because we remember when it was great. The Writer's Strike put a real damper on new shows and old shows alike this year, but 2009 has a clean new slate to...

Five Shows You Aren't Watching...But Should Be

5 TV Shows You Should Watch
There are plenty of great television shows out there but let's face it - we don't all have the time to watch every single one. Here are the top five shows that you should check out.

5. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX)

This off-the-wall sitcom is often underrated because it doesn't air on a major primetime network. Similar to the pointless yet hilarious humor of Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is about four friends living and working in Philly. Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and Dee (Kaitlin O...

ABC's Dirty Sexy Money returned for its first episode since the writers' strike halted production last winter. The show features a star-studded cast. Peter Krause, best known for his role as Nate Fisher on Six Feet Under, stars as Nick George. Nick is the family lawyer for the richest family in New York, the Darlings. Nick helps the patriarch, Tripp Darling, played by Donald Sutherland, keep his family out of trouble, but his underlying motive is to find out who killed his father, a former employee of the Darlings.

The episode surrounded a fancy birthday party for Nick, and the t...

'Sons Of Anarchy' Continues The Dysfunctional Family Drama

September 18th, 2008 10:12am EDT
Sons of Anarchy
Cable programming seems to have a trend other than sex going on. Yes, cable dramas are more violent and vulgar than anything that's found on the standard network lineup. However, cable also seem to love the dynamics that center on families.

The newest offering from the desperately controversial FX is Sons of Anarchy, a show about a biker gang in Charming, California. The series follows Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the future leader of the biker gang and stepson to the current leader Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman).

Jax is still close to his mother Gemma (Katey Sagal) and try...

TV Stars Who Deserve Emmy Nominations On July 17, Part 1

July 8th, 2008 11:55am EDT
Boston Legal
Last week, I helped the Emmy panelists decide upon which series to cast their vote for, and now it's the actors' turn.

The Emmy blue ribbon panel received a group of lists from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last week. These were top ten lists from which they were to select the five nominees for the big Emmy show. They will view select episodes from each nominee and base their decision on what they see.

It's nigh on impossible to glean an accurate impression from a small sample, especially when it comes to acting. Many characters are given complex arcs from which the...

ABC Stresses Stability, Not Ingenuity, With 2008-09 Schedule

May 14th, 2008 8:28am EDT
Ugly Betty
NBC got a jump start on the other broadcast networks with its "in-front" presentation last month, which occurred a full six weeks before the traditional upfront period. At that time NBC, mired in last place amongst the Big Four (poor CW barely registers as a blip and therefore does not count), presented a bold, dynamic and risky 2008-09 year-round schedule.

In the weeks that followed, there was naturally some speculation as to whether or not the other networks would follow NBC's lead and change the rules of the game. ABC, which unveiled its 2008-09 plans yesterday, was the first to...

Fantasy TV Crossovers

Neil Patrick Harris on How I Met Your Mother
Our fantasy TV crossovers are just that - fantasies. So why not put Neil Patrick Harris on Scrubs? Or pair two immortals together? The odds of these things happening are, well, probably a million to one. Nonetheless, we can't help but wish and hope.

How I Met Your Mother and Scrubs

With all the hoopla surrounding Britney Spears' appearance on "How I Met Your Mother," Alicia Silverstone, who was rumored to be playing the doctor to whom Spears is a receptionist, decided to postpone her appearance on the show. Instead, "Scrubs'" Sarah Chalke stepped into the role of the dermatologist r...

TV Spotlight: 'Brothers & Sisters' Producer Greg Berlanti

February 29th, 2008 1:00pm EST
Brothers & Sisters
Dick Wolf, David E. Kelley, Shonda Rhimes and Joss Whedon have all done it. You may be wondering what IT is exactly. They've all at some time point created a spin-off or expanded their TV show into a franchise (see Law & Order). They've all done crossovers between their shows, if you count the backdoor Private Practice pilot on Grey's Anatomy last season.

But those crossovers would not have been possible if they didn't all share one common trait: all of them are showrunners who have, in recent memory, shepherded multiple television shows, sometimes across different channels.

TV On DVD Recommendation: 'Six Feet Under'

February 8th, 2008 2:08pm EST
Six Feet Under
A very eclectic recommendation for a very eclectic series that those without premium channels have only heard about. Alan Ball's ("American Beauty") landmark HBO series "Six Feet Under" seamlessly blended family drama and whimsical fantasy into the morose confines of a funeral home.

"Six Feet Under" tells the story of the Fisher family. They are a Southern California clan no more dysfunctional than the usual 21st Century family with a few wrinkles: they run a funeral home and their patriarch, Nathan Fisher, Sr., (Richard Jenkins) is hit by a bus in the series premiere.

Celebrity Fashion Review: The Darling & Beautiful PYTs

It seems that Hollywood is being flooded with Pretty Young Things (PYTs) more so than ever these days. And where there is a red carpet you can expect to see these darlings and beauties showing off the latest designer fashions, which they can no doubt afford.

We love how young "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere (18) always manages to keep her look fresh and current. At the Jan. 31 L.A. premiere of the movie "The Spiderwick Chronicles" Hayden was a picture of beauty sporting a knee-length red dress with side pockets. The essence of gold was upon her as she polished off her look with ankle s...
