Jack Davenport Takes Center Stage

January 30th, 2012 2:20pm EST
Smash
NBC's Smash is full of stars, but the one you don't know - that you should know - is British actor Jack Davenport.

In the ambitious new series (starting February 6 at 10), he plays Derek Wills, director of the Marilyn Monroe musical and not the kind of man who'll be winning a congeniality award anytime soon. Derek is complimentary one minute and cringeworthy the next. He's the kind of boss we'd all hate to have but whose results can't be dismissed either. It's a role where many actors could focus on the negative and make him a tyrannical, unlikeable mess. Davenport, however, brings ...

NBC Cancels 'Mercy'

Mercy
Michelle Trachtenberg and James Van Der Beek are the latest TV stars looking for work - their medical drama "Mercy" has been canceled after its first season.

Trachtenberg stars as a nurse in the hospital series, featuring Van Der Beek in a recurring role as a womanizing doctor.

But chiefs at NBC have declined to commission a second series of the show, which launched last September.

The news comes after the recent cancellation of a number of high-profile TV shows, including Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter's hit NBC series "Heroes" and long-running cop drama "Law & Order."

Scrubs
Long-running medical comedy "Scrubs," "FlashForward" and Alyssa Milano's new TV series "Romantically Challenged" have been axed as part of a cull by bosses at ABC, according to reports.

Network chiefs have allegedly declined to commission a second series of Milano's comedy, which received mixed reviews after its launch last month.

Scrubs, which was rebooted for a ninth season, has also been cancelled along with sci-fi drama "FlashForward" and sitcom "Better Off Ted," according to Entertainment Weekly.

"Scrubs" star Zach Braff sparked rumors earlier this year that the show would be axed a...

Which TV Show Should Be Saved From Cancellation?

May 5th, 2010 10:51am EDT
Melrose Place
It's that time of year again. The various networks are deciding what to keep and what to throw out as they put together their 2010-11 primetime schedules.

As usual, some shows are canceled early ("Eastwick," anyone?) while others eek it out through the season, desperate for renewal ("FlashForward," "Heroes," and so on).

Network execs are looking at a new crop of freshman dramas, comedies, and reality shows, and they need to make room on their schedules. As a result, poor performing series are given the boot.

So as we say goodbye to some of our favorites that are gone for good ("24," "Lo...

"FlashForward" star Dominic Monaghan is transforming his backyard garden into a graveyard, complete with zombies and his own tombstone.

The star, who is famous for his menagerie of snakes, spiders and moths, has a new fascination with the undead - and he wants to entertain guests in his version of a burial ground.

He says, "I have this really steep hill in my backyard... I'm building these two staircases that intersect and take you to dead ends. At the end of the dead ends there's going to be a table for two people and a chess set and a zombie buried in the ground. I'm getting a tombstone...

TV Wishlist for 2010
2009 is officially ending and 2010 is beginning. What this year means for the entertainment world is anyone's guess, but there will probably be some blockbusters, some brilliant indie films, a few surprises and disappointments, and then excitement for the following year. On television there have been some great new shows, such as "Glee" and "Modern Family," and some older shows that are going strong, like "24" and "Criminal Minds." But every once and awhile fans have to think about what little things they'd change in their favorite shows, and here's a look at a TV Wishlist for 2010.

Remote Control Battle: TV Both Men And Women May Enjoy Together

November 16th, 2009 9:00pm EST
Remote Control Battle
A Woman's Perspective: Remember when sitcoms used to make jokes about how men and women watch television differently? The sloppy, somewhat aloof husband character would always be zooming through the channels, flicking the remote faster than his perky, pretty, younger wife could keep up. She'd then snatch the remote and pause on each channel achingly slowly, narrating not only what was occurring in the scene on screen but also what she hoped or thought would occur next.

Not only did men and women watch differently, though, what they watched was always assumed to be different. Men had the...

Which New TV Shows Should Be Saved?

Eastwick
The television networks are axing shows that aren't performing or haven't had a chance to perform (The Beautiful Life: TBL, Southland) and are giving full-season orders to those that are meeting expectations (Glee, FlashForward, etc.).

There are several new shows this year that are currently on the fence - and they could be either canceled or given a chance to find the necessary audience to keep them alive.

Which shows do you think deserve to stay on air? Vote in the poll, and let us know in the comments!

New Fall TV: Keep It Or Kill It

fall tv keep or kill
It's that time of year. You've checked out the new shows and by now you know if you love them or hate them. Networks are either ordering additional episodes of their fledgling series or quietly letting them burn off until nobody notices they are gone. And some networks stayed cautiously conservative by looking back to previous television icons and failing miserably (we are talking to you, NBC).

Check out the crop of new series and whether we think they should stay on the air or be put out of their misery. Let us know if you agree!

Pre-Season 2009 TV Report Card: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

September 21st, 2009 12:30pm EDT
Desperate Housewives
Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?

MAJOR NETWORKS

ABC: B

The Good: The dramas are what keep us coming back to ABC. Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, FlashForward, and V are worth looking forward to. The one comedy that stands out and may hold itself against NBC's stellar comedies, Modern Family, is worth a few episodes past the pilot.

The Syfying Of Science Fiction Is Both Good & Bad

August 29th, 2009 2:00pm EDT
True Blood
Everyone seems really into vampires lately. Sexy vampires that have steamy vampire sex with each other all the time. If not vampires than it's people with psychic abilities (Psych) or people that travel through alternate dimensions. And that's just on television. These days a major blockbuster movie can't make a return without aliens (District 9), killer robots (Transformers) or wizards (Harry Potter). We live in a time where Quentin Tarantino is playing with alternate history (Inglourious Basterds) and weepy chick flicks are about time travel (The Time Traveler's Wife).

Two Sci-Fi Shows We Can't Wait For This Fall: 'V' & 'FlashForward'

July 9th, 2009 10:08am EDT
V
Science fiction has taken somewhat of an upward turn in recent years, becoming attractive to more than the small cultish fan groups and growing to the universal mainstream.

With the success of shows like "Lost," "Fringe," "Heroes," "Battlestar Galactica" and "X-Files," sci-fi is steadily becoming worth investing in by the bigger networks.

Starting in the fall, ABC is releasing two new big sci-fi shows to the mainstream to see if we have a taste for it, and if you're any kind of sci-fi fan at all, these are the new shows you should be looking forward to.
