Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

May 15th, 2014 2:40pm EDT
Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.

SUNDAY:

ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

How Many Sharks Have Your Favorite Shows Jumped?

April 19th, 2014 10:00am EDT
Supernatural
In the fickle word of entertainment, it's rare when a television show makes it through its first season. For the lucky shows that do, they risk jumping the shark, Hollywood's term for a show's cringe-worthy decline due to over-the-top or nonsensical plotlines. Has your favorite long-running series like "Supernatural" or "The Good Wife" made the leap? Read on to find out...

"Supernatural"

It's a little baffling that the CW's sci-fi show is bringing in some of its best ratings yet in its ninth season. It's mind-boggling to realize that after nearly 200 episodes, "Supernatural" is s...

CBS Renews A Ton Of Shows

March 13th, 2014 3:16pm EDT
The Good Wife
CBS issued renewals to NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, Criminal Minds, Person Of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, 2 Broke Girls, The Millers, Mom, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours. Add to that the renewal of The Big Bang Theory, and CBS just renewed a whopping 20 shows.

Not being picked up, but still not cancelled, are The Mentalist, Intelligence, Hostages, and The Crazy Ones. I would definitely rule out Intelligence and Hostages. Both failed to grab huge audiences. I think The Mentalist will prob...

Every four years, the Winter Olympics inspires nations through through extreme snowy sports, the human spirit and a centuries' old flame. As much as I enjoyed the tear-jerking interviews and the incredible performances, I'm glad the Olympic torch has been extinguished and the television can resume its regularly scheduled programming.

2013 Fall TV Preview: The Returning Shows On The CW & CBS

September 4th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Arrow
The CW and CBS are complete opposites. The CW shouldn't be in business, and CBS is THE business. The CW aims for teenagers to lose their sh!t on social media. CBS aims for the median age of the people in my office. I've never understood the Blue Bloods audience more than in the last year. My interest in The CW is odd and possibly unhealthy. I'm endlessly fascinated with its shows and attractive actors. I'll watch Reign just for Adelaide Kane. I'm not endlessly fascinated by CBS. CBS lulls me to sleep. I never wrote about Elementary's "Pilot" because I went to sleep mid-episode. I never watc...

Melanie Griffith has signed on to play Scott Caan's mom on CBS cop drama Hawaii Five-O.

Five Ways 'Hawaii Five-0' Got Awesome Again

February 4th, 2013 2:30pm EST
hawaii five-0
It's not uncommon for television shows, especially one's that are incredibly popular in their first season, to experience a bit of a sophomore slump.  CBS's bikinis and bombshells remake of "Hawaii Five-0" experienced creative backslide in its second season after a blockbuster debut.  Thankfully, it wasn't a "Heroes"-esque decline and there have been major strides this season to regain the high-octane crime drama it once was.  Here are the five ways "Hawaii Five-0" got awesome again, and reattained its guilty-pleasure status.

The Top 10 TV Shows That Should Be Brought Back, Rebooted Or Just Re-Run

October 5th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Miami Vice
TV remakes are either hit-or-miss, but with hollywood lacking many new ideas (seems like every other show is a crime drama or takes place in a hospital these days) we've thought of a few classic shows that we think would make the cut and stick around for a while -- if they're done correctly.

There are a number of old shows from the 70s and 80s that have been brought back in recent years, some with all new casts and edgier than their predecessors, and others featuring some of the original cast members. Others were revamped entirely, and some casting decisions killed a couple before they wer...

Taryn Manning on Her New Single, 'Hawaii Five-0' and Stereotyping

September 6th, 2012 10:30am EDT
Taryn Manning
Taryn Manning is secure in her identity. The singer, actress, dancer and fashion designer is busy with a variety of projects, but her strong personality shines through in everything that she pursues, including her recently released single "Send Me Your Love", her forthcoming album Freedom City, and her return to CBS's Hawaii Five-0.

"Send Me Your Love" is a dance anthem that features the DJ/producer duo of Sultan and Ned Shepard, but it boasts a much deeper lyrical meaning than your typical electronica tune. "This song's about my love story with faith and God," explained Taryn, who wrote...

When you’re watching an episode of “Hawaii Five-0,” you’re guaranteed three things: gratuitous shots of Hawaii’s obscenely beautiful landscapes and shorelines, violent murders and adrenaline-packed action scenes. The cop show’s admittedly rocky second season ended with the team briefly united before Steve traveled to Japan to finally meet the infamous “Shelburne,” and peril striking back Chin Ho and Kono back in Hawaii.

TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

May 25th, 2012 12:07pm EDT
Revenge Cast
Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-c...

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Angling For Role In The Next 'Hangover'

Get Him To The Greek
Sean 'Diddy' Combs has sparked rumors he is fishing for a cameo role in the next The Hangover sequel after he was spotted meeting with director Todd Phillips.

The rapper has been pursuing an acting career over the last few years, landing a two-episode role in CSI: Miami, a slot on Hawaii Five-0 and a part opposite Russell Brand in 2010 comedy Get Him to the Greek.

He also won his first Oscar in February after working as an executive producer on sports documentary Undefeated, which was named Best Documentary Feature at the Academy Awards.

10 Favorite Small Screen Scene-Stealers

I once had dreams of becoming an Emmy-Winning actress, but thanks to a traumatizing audition for a middle school drama club and being roughly a few inches shy of Snooki-esque shortness, those dreams never panned out. I’m happy to leave the acting to the professionals, and admire their work as a fan and critic. For this television-aholic, there’s nothing better than beholding a great actor who steals every frame of their scenes.

Hawaii Five-O actor Alex O'Loughlin is taking a break from filming the hit TV show to address his dependency on prescription drugs.

He will take a break from the show to focus on his recovery, but is expected to rejoin the cast once his rehab stint is concluded.

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'I Helu Pu' (2.16)

February 14th, 2012 3:10am EST
Hawaii Five-O
Hawaii Five-0 does its damnedest to break its formula this week, but that doesn't invigorate the show as much as you might think. Quite the opposite: it actually does a little damage.

As we start, Lori Weston's got a lot of blood on her hands...literally. She walks out of the bathroom and we find out that she's in a hospital, asking after Steve and getting in trouble with Lieutenant Governor Denning for causing an international incident. Denning reminds us that he assigned her to this task force, so perhaps he'll end up reassigning her elsewhere.

Eighteen hours earlier, everything i...

Hawaii Five-O
After some reruns, Hawaii Five-0 finally brings us a new episode. This one involves a law enforcement officer who meets a bloody end in an airplane bathroom. Not the way I'd want to go out.

Upon arriving at the crime scene, Danny realizes that he knew the victim, U.S. Marshal Dave Collins. Chin reports that there are two missing passengers - the felon Dave was transporting, Sal Painter (that's Sons of Anarchy's Theo Rossi) and another man posing as Rick McGuire. Five-0 immediately moves to talk to the key witness against Sal, Holly Malone (White Collar's Gloria Votsis), who tips th...

After last week's underwhelming Hawaii Five-0, we finally find out who Shelburne is...and that's pretty much it.

We get a flashback to 1992, where Steve is having a talk with his father (William Sadler, if you forgot). Dad is sending Steve and Mary Ann back to the mainland. "It's not safe for you here anymore," he says. This doesn't go over well with teenage Steve, but present-day Steve totally gets it. And is totally following Joe, until he gets a call about a delivery truck being hit. What got stolen? Something that needed to be snuck past Customs.

Hawaii Five-O
This week's Hawaii Five-0 wins for "Most O's in an Episode Title." Unfortunately, that's about all it wins, as it's a rather lackluster return for a generally great show.

Who would hire a professional killer to off a teenage girl? That's the question of the week when Emily Winter is discovered deceased. Her father (Clayton Norcross) has no idea why his daughter would be targeted, but tells Steve that she stole a check from him and wrote it out for five thousand dollars. We discover that this was in order to help her friend Karen (Courtney Coleman), who's being blackmailed over her...

'Hawaii Five-0' Producer Apologizes For Offending World War II Veterans

Hawaii Five-O
TV bosses behind hit show Hawaii Five-O have apologized to American World War II veterans for filming an upcoming episode during their Pearl Harbor anniversary tribute last week.

Dozens of Pearl Harbor survivors and military officials congregated at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu last week to remember the lives lost during the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian naval base in 1941.

However, the group became enraged when a Hawaii Five-0 film crew neglected to alter its shooting schedule out of respect for the deceased and instead forged ahead with filming a scene in ...

Hawaii Five-O
We've come to Hawaii Five-0's fall finale, and it encapsulates the season to date: perhaps not remarkable, but watchable, and leaving us wondering where it's all going.

When a dead body (who later turns out to be quite alive) is found inside an abandoned bunker, it's up to our heroes to close the case and still make it to Chin's wedding. This involves live grenades, a perp dumpster diving, and a run-in with newly-promoted Captain Fryer (Tom Sizemore). The man they found is Fryer's prime suspect in the murder of Bridgett Turner. His wife (that's NYPD Blue's Gail O'Grady) has no idea...
