Toks Olagundoye Is One Of ABC's 'The Neighbors'

Toks Olagundoye Is One Of ABC's 'The Neighbors'
ABC's The Neighbors picks up its second season tonight, and BFTV touched base with actress Toks Olagundoye - who plays the alien Jackie Joyner-Kersee - to chat about the show, what it means to portray an otherworldly being, and the unconsidered perks of being an actress.

How exactly do you decide to play an alien? Do you go over the top, like John Lithgow's beloved character in 3rd Rock From The Sun, which The Neighbors is oft compared to? Toks told us, "I would love to say that I'm a very Method actor, because that seems to be the popular thing to say, but I'm really not. I think that I r...

Reginald VelJohnson
Tonight's episode of ABC's The Neighbors is chock full of comedic talent. Reginald VelJohnson, known and loved for his role as Carl Winslow on the Alphabet's Family Matters, guests as Jackie's father in a Thanksgiving story. BFTV spoke with Reginald on Thursday to ask him about the role, and being "that guy" that we remember from so many other things.

"It was a fun concept that they presented to me and I went with it," Reginald said. "I play the father of Jackie Joyner-Kersee on the show, and I had to interpret this alien being."

"The scenes that I had with Toks Olagundoye, who plays Jack...

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

10/8/2013 6:00pm EDT
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...

Fall 2013 TV Report (So Far)

10/5/2013 2:06pm EDT
Sleepy  Hollow
Here’s how the Fall TV season has been shaping up.


ABC doesn’t have a lot to celebrate about. Once Upon A Time and Revenge are both down season-to-season, yet up from last season’s finales. So, really, you could say they are even for the night. Their new drama, Betrayal, however is a disappointment. Low ratings. Does ABC have anything ready to replace Betrayal though? They’re already definitely going to cancel the much lower rated Lucky 7 (an almost certainty), can they afford to axe two shows?

CBS has a nice strong lineup of returning shows, all performing well. FOX’s shows are ...

2013 Fall TV Preview: The Returning Shows On ABC

9/3/2013 11:46am EDT
Modern Family
Welcome to Week 2 of the 2013 Fall TV Preview. ABC kicks things off for the third year in a row. I wrote about the critics disdain for ABC president Paul Lee last week, but they acknowledge ABC's success with its veteran shows. Revenge and Once Upon A Time enter season three this month. Grey's Anatomy is entering its tenth season. Castle's on season six. The Neighbors and Nashville got a second season. ABC struggles to develop and maintain new shows. I don't know why. How futile is network analysis with the growth of streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix? Network analysis is interesti...
