Bryan Cranston Plays Lyndon B. Johnson In Newest Broadway Biopic
Bryan Cranston, first known for his part in 'Malcolm In The Middle', and his (in)famous portrayal as the Chemistry teacher-turned-drug lord, Walter White in AMC's blockbuster series 'Breaking Bad' has a new role, not on the big or even the small screen, but rather on broadway.

Cranston will be playing the part of the the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson, in the broadway biopic, 'All The Way,' which takes it's name from the popular running slogan "All the way with LBJ."

Not a terribly happy looking guy, that LBJ.

Actor Bryan Cranston can boast about sharing a bed with Julia Roberts - even if the actress was fully clothed and he was cold and naked under the sheets.

The former Malcolm in the Middle actor co-stars with Roberts in Tom Hanks' new movie Larry Crowne, and admits he loved playing the Oscar winner's husband.

However, there was one bedroom scene he'll always remember.

Sons of Tucson, a mid-season entry from FOX, stars Tyler Labine (Reaper) as Ron, a down-on-his-luck schmo who is recruited by three kids to play their dad. Their father is in prison for some kind of financially-related crime, so they move to Arizona where he keeps a house. They need to get accepted into school so that people don't ask questions, and that's where Ron comes in. Yes, in this show, the kids are responsible, while the 30-something is the slob.

Why You Should Be Watching 'The Middle'

3/10/2010 10:30am EST

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

1/16/2010 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...

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...
