Patricia Heaton
Danny DeVito and Patricia Heaton were among the Hollywood stars rocked when an earthquake hit Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon.

A 4.2-magnitude quake, centered 24 miles northwest of downtown L.A., shook the city and several aftershocks followed.

The former "Everybody Loves Raymond" star Heaton quickly took to Twitter, asking fans, "Was there an earthquake in LA? My desk just shook like crazy", before adding: "Whoohoo! Earthquake LA! Life is precarious, people - carpe diem!"

Pauley Perrette was on the set of her hit series "NCIS" at the time of the tremors, and she updated her followers ...

TNT Cancels 'Men Of A Certain Age'

July 18th, 2011 8:05am EDT
Men Of A Certain Age
Beloved comic Ray Romano's latest show Men Of A Certain Age is to be axed due to poor ratings.

The funnyman, who wrote and starred in the popular sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond for nine seasons, signed a deal with TNT in 2009 to pen the comedy, which focuses on the lives of a middle-aged man and his two college buddies, played by Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula.

However, after just two seasons, network executives have decided not to move forward with the show for another series, blaming the axing on viewing figures.

A spokesperson says, "TNT has been proud to be a part of Men of a Cer...

'Men Of A Certain Age' - The Best Humanity Has To Offer

November 17th, 2010 10:37am EST
Men of a certain age
“Men of a Certain Age” must have been a tough sell. I imagine if anyone other than Ray Romano had gone into a TNT pitch meeting and attempted to sell the network on the idea of three middle aged men contending with real life problems, they’d be laughed out of the office and told to come back when they had vampires or singing teenagers.

Men of a Certain Age season one is available now on DVD

Season 2 premieres December 6 at 10/9c on TNT.

Thankfully Ray Romano was behind “Men of a Certain Age” and was able to use his considerable talents to bring this truly delightful show to the airwaves....

Recap: 'The Middle' Season 2 Premiere

September 23rd, 2010 12:18am EDT
The-Middle-tv-15.jpg
"The Middle," which follows the antics of the quirky Heck family in Indiana, entered its second season on ABC Wednesday night. It also marked the show's first guest star of the season: Doris Roberts. Yup, the mom from "Everybody Loves Raymond." She reunited with "Middle" lead and "Raymond" star Patricia Heaton, playing the teacher of youngest child and strange, whispering savant, Brick (named after the Indianapolis Brickyard).

It's the first day of school, and the Hecks' morning ritual is spiraling into cereal-spilling, teeth-brushing, "shut up"-flinging bedlam. Axl's barel...

Why You Should Be Watching 'The Middle'

March 10th, 2010 10:30am EST
the middle
Contrary to modern belief, the sitcom (or “comedy” for those born after 1995) has not been derailed. Yes, that little thing called reality TV has made networks almost forget about that television genre that made the ‘80s, and part of the ‘90s, so great. But, fret not. Networks haven’t completely forgot about sitcoms.

With new favorites like Modern Family and Glee and older favorites like How I Met Your Mother and The Simpsons dominating the ratings, there’s the little-show-that-could called The Middle that may have slipped off the radar.

Set in the small fictional town of Orson, Indiana, ...

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...

The Ten Greatest Of The Decade: TV Shows

December 14th, 2009 9:30am EST
Best TV Of The Decade
As the decade reaches its conclusion, you'll undoubtedly come across many lists. Lists that purport to tell you the best, the top, the cream of the decade as they relate to pop culture. You're also certain to come across many lists that claim to rank the "greatest" of the ten year period from 2000-2009. But what does that really mean?

"Greatest" should be something entirely different from what we usually associate with these lists. Mostly, these lists claim to rank the best - something that is only truly possible were a listmaker to, say, see every single movie in a given decade. If...

Patricia Heaton Q&A On Her New ABC Series 'The Middle'

August 26th, 2009 10:12am EDT
Patricia Heaton
Patricia Heaton is back with another TV comedy. Now, we know what you're thinking. She already tried to follow up Everybody Loves Raymond with Back to You, that newsroom comedy. Well, this one is back in her wheelhouse.

ABC's The Middle stars Heaton as a married mother raising her family in middle America. Each of her kids have their own special demands, and the first episode already has her wearing a Superwoman costume for a last minute school presentation.

As a working mom herself, Heaton knows The Middle is all too real. She was happy to share her experiences, both real and dramat...

The 2009 Emmy nominees will be announced Thursday morning and despite recent changes to the voting system, Emmy voters just can't seem to stray away from the same old outcome. Sure, 30 Rock gets showered with love, but how many more times does Mariska Hargitay need to make the cut?

Interview: Nicole Sullivan Rocks!

Nicole Sullivan
(TJAGS weekly column) It was 9:30 PM, on a Thursday night, and I was in the middle of dinner and (more than a few) drinks at a local establishment. My phone starts vibrating in my left pocket, I don't recognize the number. I sheepishly answer and on the other end is the unmistakable voice of Nicole Sullivan (MADtv, The King of Queens, Rita Rocks) asking if this was a good time to speak. Our interview, scheduled earlier in the day, had been postponed -- I had thought, wrongly -- to another day.

She did not want to impose and explained we could reschedule. "Nonsense," I said, "we can st...

Being Green Is Great, But Is Hollywood Taking Recycling Too Far?

Is there such a thing as a show-a-holic? A glimpse at the TV guide shows certain names keep cropping up time and time again attached to new shows. Could certain actors be addicted to starring on TV? And will they do anything to keep working whether the show is a quality one or not?

Isn't addiction classified as doing something to the point of excess, even after the point at which the person knows it's not healthy for them anymore? If the answer is yes then there are a few actors working today who show signs of needing serious career detox and rehab.

Oh these cold winter months. In years past we could warm ourselves with the knowledge that our favorite shows would return in the new year and provide us with solid entertainment until May. Unfortunately all that changed this year.

With the Writers Guild of America still on the picket lines, faithful television watchers must look elsewhere for new entertainment. This means venturing into the uncharted realm of expanded digital cable. Nestled within this wasteland of depravity and cooking shows lies BBC America. Is it a beacon of light in the darkness?

Remember These Overused Catchphrases?

Ever cringe whenever a television character keeps on saying the same remark over and over again? A lot of fans can't help but associate certain TV characters based on their most popular catch phrase, and this isn't always a good thing.

From "Have mercy!" to "How you doin'?" we can't help but remember certain catch phrases because these characters have used them over and over… and over again.

A good chunk of the most overused catch phrases in television history have come from the popular 80s sitcom "Full House." Just mention this show and three phrases will come to mind: Uncle Jes...
