September 22nd, 2011 7:55pm EDT
Desperate Housewives
With the new fall season starting in September, a lot of TV on DVD titles have turned out over the last few months to help fans catch up with favorite shows. I do mean a lot. So many that it'd be a deluge of reviews if we were to write them all up individually. To keep from drowning you in print, but still keep you up to date, here's a quick look at many of the new titles that have arrived recently.

TV Cancellations, Renewals And Shocks, Oh My!

May 14th, 2011 3:04pm EDT
The Event
They’re goin’ down like flies.

This week, FOX tear-gassed its on-the-bubble shows, and NBC and ABC have taken similar approaches. Either pilot season has produced some very promising material, or the networks are getting violent. Either way, there are a lot of casualties.

Let’s start with the good news: Among shows in trouble, NBC’s ‘Chuck’ has been renewed for one more season, but the caveat is that it’s just one more season, and a 13-episode one at that. Still, it’ll provide plenty of closure for fans. NBC’s ‘Parenthood’ was also granted another wish from the network’s genie, with i...

Star TV Couples for Valentine's Day 2011

February 14th, 2011 9:31am EST
The Good Wife
The marriage relationship is the staple and backbone of our society—and the same goes for the TV Land universe. Besides the requisite cop and law shows and all the TV trends in between that have come and gone, marriage and family shows have always been the rock. As television shows have evolved (and censorship has denigrated) so have the way couples have been shown relating to each other. Lucy and Ricky Ricardo (I Love Lucy) slept in twin beds and Lucy most times resorted to manipulation to get her way, or she whined and cried until she did. Mike and Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch) never had ...

Autumn Reeser
Actress Autumn Reeser is expecting her first child with her writer/director husband Jesse Warren.

The former The O.C. star, 30, revealed the news during an appearance on late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, after confessing she was feeling self-conscious about her figure in her little black dress.

Initially joking about having a beer gut, she told presenter Kimmel, "I wanted to wear it (the dress) but I was a little nervous about wearing it tonight because it's a little tight and I'm carrying a little extra weight... I drank a lot of beer before I came here... No, I'm preg...

Fall TV: What's Surviving, What's Thriving, And What's Dying

November 11th, 2010 10:25am EST
Mike & Molly
We've reached a breaking point in the Fall TV season: almost everything that's still around will likely survive the season (key word: almost). It's becoming clearer which new shows are hits (hint: not many), and there are already several casualties. Let's run down the list.

The already renewed

CBS has picked up all five of their new shows: 'Hawaii Five-O,' 'Mike & Molly,' '@#$% My Dad Says,' 'Blue Bloods' and 'The Defenders.' Each show has performed admirably, but none can be called a runaway hit. CBS, though, has the least holes in its schedule and can be proud that viewership is up ...

Fall TV Ratings: What's Hot, What's Not

October 8th, 2010 9:30am EDT
Cloris Leachman
We're only two weeks into the fall season, and we have two series cancellations. Let's see if we can keep up this "one canceled show a week" deal. For the record, the goners are FOX's 'Lone Star' and ABC's 'My Generation,' both of which got dismal ratings. Production was also halted on the Jimmy Smits drama 'Outlaw' and it's not looking good for ABC's 'The Whole Truth' either. By next week there will likely be more network victims.

As of this week, no huge new hits have emerged. FOX's 'Raising Hope' is doing fairly well following the hot 'Glee' and was awarded this week with a ...

'No Ordinary Family' 1x02 Recap: 'No Ordinary Marriage'

October 6th, 2010 1:05pm EDT
NOF George
The episode opens, and Jim is on the run. He leaps onto the roof of a nearby building and his momentum causes him to skid right off the other side. Thankfully, there's another small ledge beneath that, and he's able to jump safely.

His earpiece rings, and George is on the other line; he chides him on his landing- it must make it difficult to hide a super-human man when he's denting in the pavement all across the city.

Jim wants to spend less time talking about his technique and more time getting directions to the robbery he's apparently on his way to stopping. The cops are still over thre...

Michael Chiklis No Ordinaary Family
ABC’s new fall show No Ordinary Family is aimed at the ordinary family. In the first episode, a suburban family of four obtains super powers in a plane crash. They return to their normal lives with the powers of strength, speed, mind reading and genius. Michael Chiklis plays the strong father.

“Look, the superhero element in the context of a family drama, it just lends itself where these guys [the writers and producers] can just let their imaginations run wild,” Chiklis said. “It just opens up so many different worlds that we can enter. It makes it exciting and, potentially, extremely ent...
