TV Goodbye: Shows That Ended & Shows That Were Cancelled In 2011

December 31st, 2011 12:00pm EST
Canceled and Ended Shows in 2011
Ask the typical American to name 20 currently airing primetime television shows and they probably can't without doing some serious thinking. They'd probably even ramble off a few that were cancelled during the year or the year before without even realizing it.

In 2011 a myriad of television shows come to an end with over 80 leaving the airwaves, most of which you probably never even heard of (some were so small we didn't even include them in this year-end roundup).

Some had tearful goodbyes after long runs (Oprah, Big Love, Rescue Me), and others were canceled so fast we hardly even knew ...

Q&A: Kelsey Grammer Talks ABC's New Series 'Hank,' His Health And More

September 28th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Kelsey Grammer
Kelsey Grammer should mean gold for any TV series. His long run on Cheers and Frasier is legendary, and he keeps popping up as Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons. It didn't quite work out for Back to You, but that certainly wasn't his fault. His new show, Hank, could be the next winner in his stable.

Hank is a disgraced Fortune 500 honcho who has to adjust to small town sitcom life. Moving back home with his family provides a culture clash with Grammer clinging to the sort of highbrow luxuries familiar to Frasier Crane. Reality provides the humor.

Over the summer, Grammer presented the new...

Spencer Grammer
ABC Family's series Greek wraps up its second season on June 15. Star Spencer Grammer gave Starpulse.com a preview of things to come in the final round of shows.

""We have a father daughter weekend," Grammer said. "That will be fun. Jerry Lambert plays my father on the show, so he's going to come back. That will be fun. There's like a fight. There's like a football thing or something. It's pretty funny what I've read. I was laughing out loud actually. There's some really good jokes in it."

Grammer already goes back to work at the end of August on season three, which promises to d...

A Look At The Evolution Of The Web Series

September 10th, 2008 11:46am EDT
Chelsea Handler
It's pretty apparent that the emergence of original programming on the internet, debuting at only minute-and-a-half to three minute clips, was geared directly at the teenage set-- playing into the whole shortening attention span and need to get their entertainment from the same rectangular box that they get the research for their term papers and with which they network and communicate with friends. Web series, as they were deemed, didn't officially become an official part of new media until they began to gain widespread popularity with lonelygirl15, a video blog from a so-called teenage gir...

Five Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows At Comic-Con

August 8th, 2008 10:31am EDT
Heroes
Two weeks ago, nerds, geeks, and those "just going to San Diego for the weekend to check out the beaches" poured into Comic-Con 2008 in all their "Babylon 5"-clad glory.

Comic-Con is an ever-evolving beast. It started as a few dozen collectors meeting in a basement in San Diego to trade and discuss comics. Now it is an event so massive it shuts down an entire city for the weekend.

Comic-Con also holds a tremendous amount of power nowadays. Nervous directors unveil scenes from their latest superhero big-screen opus to the attendees, well-aware that a lukewarm response could spe...

Gay Characters On TV? No Big Deal

August 7th, 2008 8:35am EDT
Ellen Degeneres
Remember a few years ago when entertainment magazines hailed the coming of gay television? With hits like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Will & Grace drawing millions of fans on both sides of the gay fence it seemed like a veritable gay revolution was at hand. Then "Will & Grace" stopped being funny, "Queer Eye" ceased being entertaining, and Ellen became the straightest lesbian to ever host her own talk show.

Was the gay television boom dead, or had it retreated into the closet waiting for a brand new coming out party? Where have all the dude loving dudes gone...

Writer Dee Doyle
On behalf of Starpulse.com, I was invited to attend the ABC Family Party on Friday, July 25, at the beautiful Omni San Diego Hotel. The annual comic convention was sold out and full of exciting exclusives, hilarious panels, and brand new information, but I was surprised to find that the ABC party turned out to be my favorite part.

There were several of its best known stars wandering around the terrace, including stars from "Kyle XY" Jaimie Alexander and Matt Dallas, and they were greatly encouraging the press to learn all about their brand new show "Samurai Girl." The lovely star Jami...

Our Favorite TV Nerds

There are two types of TV nerds, the first comprise many of the Starpulse staff, geeks totally in love with TV. Our biggest conundrums tend to revolve around choosing whether to DVR Bones on Monday or just pay for it on iTunes because Greek and The Big Bang Theory are already set to be recorded.

The second type of TV nerds is the geeky television characters us normal nerds strive to become. Sadly we have no hope of achieving such levels of nerdvana so for now we're just going to look at some of the best TV nerds currently making the airwaves a bit smarter.

Wow, we're already at the finale! Kristi Yamaguchi, Jason Taylor, and Cristian de la Fuente are the final three, and tonight we decide who wins. Last night we had a freestyle round and a cha-cha to the death!

I'm still not certain how Cristian made it into the "Dancing With The Stars" finals, but I can't really think of anyone else to be there *cough* Shannon Elizabeth *cough* so they've got as much of a shot at winning as the other two couples. We've made it this far, let's take it home.

Is 'Quarterlife' A Cornerstone?

January 3rd, 2008 12:33pm EST
Quarterlife
Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick's "Quarterlife" begins with its main character, Dylan (Bitsie Tulloch), asking, "What is a blog?" and following it up with, "We blog to exist, therefore we -- are idiots." Living up to her answer, Dylan then proceeds to post videos of her friends and roommates online without their consent, as well as videos of herself pondering the existential questions plaguing her mind.

With her introspective narration, Dylan seems to be channeling her inner Angela Chase, but the series' exploration of the minutia of life and love makes it feel more like the cousi...
