Chris Klein
Actor Chris Klein will make a TV comeback this summer, following a two-month rehab stint.

The American Pie actor has signed on to star alongside Elijah Wood in the new comedy, Wilfred, reports The show, which will premiere in June, is based on an Australian sitcom of the same name.

The show will debut almost a year to the day after Klein was arrested after failing a sobriety test when his car was pulled over by cops on an Los Angeles freeway. It was his second DUI arrest in five years. He was busted on a similar charge in 2005.

Klein was charged with two misdemeanors and s...

Brittany's TCA 2011 Blog: FOX - 'Chicago Code,' 'American Idol,' 'Terra Nova,' & More

Chicago Code
FOX had its Television Critics Association presentation Tuesday, and from my front-row (literally) seat, I confirmed what I felt has been the case for awhile: while the network has consistently strong dramas, it still needs to find some reliable comedies - at least when it comes to ones that aren't animated.

Here's how the day played out:

The Chicago Code

The highlight of my day was easily the presentation for Shawn Ryan's new drama, The Chicago Code (premiering February 7). Given Ryan's pedigree as the creator of The Shield, The Unit and the recently axed Terriers, the buzz - and the ex...

'The Good Guys' Really Cancelled This Time

The Good Guys
Bad news for fans (including myself) of FOX's The Good Guys: this time, it really is cancelled.

Though the show's been prematurely reported as cancelled numerous times, my information comes from a reputable source: RonReaco Lee, who played unlucky snitch Julius Grant for most of the show's run. I had a chance to chat with RonReaco on Thursday night while he walked the red carpet for his new BET series, Let's Stay Together, and when I asked about the fate of The Good Guys, he told me it's over.

"The people who liked it really liked it," he said. "But there weren't enough of you."

'The Good Guys' 1.20 'Partners' Recap and Review

The Good Guys
If this really does turn out to be the last episode of The Good Guys, the show went out with a bang.

Jack and Dan are having lunch at the cafe that apparently has the "best pancakes in Dallas." This puts them in prime position when a guy skips out on his check. Dan being Dan, he decides to go through the window rather than the door (breaking a $300 window to handle a $6.52 (plus tip) crime) in pursuit - a pursuit that's short-lived when a guy walks in front of Jack and collides with him, leaving him on the ground in pain. Unsurprisingly, Dan is unconcerned.

When they get back to t...

'The Good Guys' 1.19 'Cop Killer' Recap and Review

The Good Guys
No, The Good Guys has not been cancelled. Not as of November 30, anyway.

The bad news is it may very well be. We're down to the final two episodes of season one, and things aren't looking so hot. Many sites have given up on the show already and considered it as good as dead (which may be where some of that false cancellation buzz comes from). It's a shame, really, because this whole season has brought us an offbeat, funny way to spend our Friday evenings, shown us that Colin Hanks may be the best 'straight man' in TV comedy, and proven that Bradley Whitford has absolutely no shame....

Chris Klein
Actor Chris Klein has returned to work following a two-month rehab stint stemming from an alcohol-related arrest in June - to film a cameo role on TV series The Good Guys.

Klein, who spent four days behind bars, pleaded no contest to the DUI counts and was released on bail after agreeing to enroll in an alcohol education program.

He checked himself into Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab facility for two months of treatment in...

What To Watch: Summer 2010 TV

5/14/2010 10:44am EDT
Summer TV 2010
There used to be a time when summer television was all reruns and special events, like baseball games and the occasional Olympics. Then it became a reality television zone, giving life to such mind-numbingness as CBS’ Big Brother, a show about thirteen insipid individuals put in a house and made to play inane games and “back door” each other for a chance at a half a million dollars. More and more, though, networks are scheduling new shows for the summer block that are quirkier, non-formulaic, and even character driven. What was once a wasteland is fast becoming a haven for smaller, niche sh...
