Scott Adsit Talks With Starpulse About His Show, '30 Rock'

April 16th, 2009 10:09am EDT
Scott Adsit
In the pilot episode of the Emmy Award winning 30 Rock, Scott Adsit's character, Pete Hornberger, is fired. In an example of art imitating life, Scott himself was, at least at first, also being cut from the show. While Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) was trying to save Pete's job from Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) on camera, Tina Fey was trying to save Scott's job in the cast from Executive Producer Lorne Michaels, off camera. Scott was nice enough to discusses with us that very incident along with his roots at Second City, his time on Mr. Show, his favorite moments on 30 Rock and answers some reader qu...

A Conversation with 'Lie To Me' Star Monica Raymund

February 4th, 2009 10:49am EST
Monica Raymund
(TJAGS is a weekly column) Every year I try to pick a new drama to watch and make it my "new show" that I follow for the season. This does not always work out (see: Love Monkey and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). I had decided that Lie to Me was going to be this year's show, based mainly on my appreciation for Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction). Due to circumstances, I was out of town and I never got a chance to watch the two episodes I had recorded on DVR when, coincidentally, I was contacted and asked if I wanted to speak to one of the stars, Monica Raymund. I agreed, of course, and ...

Art Imitating Life Imitating Art: Q&A With 'Pushing Daisies' Writers Chad & Dara Creasey

January 9th, 2009 11:31am EST
Pushing Daisies
At first the tale of this up-and-coming Hollywood power couple sounds like the plot to one of the romantic comedies they've made their "bread and butter on." They met in the Peter Stark producing program at USC, started writing together, fell in love, got married, started writing for television, moved to a house in the Hollywood Hills and lived happily ever after. Not bad for a couple in their late twenties. How did "a pseudo-intellectual Jew from the Upper East Side," and a man "from the plains of Colorado" get so lucky?

"Chad and I come from extremely different backgrounds," said ...

The Twelve Episodes of Christmas Television Gave To Us

December 14th, 2008 12:00pm EST
Mystery Science Theater 3000
Every year around this time, holiday specials fall on network TV like snowflakes, a comforting blanket of tradition and familiarity. But while those classics may be festive enough for some, we prefer a more modern take on the holiday season. From the heart-warming to the hilarious to the possibly offensive, here are twelve holiday-themed episodes from some of my favorite contemporary shows that put me in the Christmas spirit:

"Forgiveness and Stuff" (Gilmore Girls, Season 1 Episode 10)

Spotlight On Kristin Chenoweth

November 12th, 2008 10:00am EST
Kristin Chenoweth
With the voice of an angel and enough charm to wrap cynical Aaron Sorkin around her little finger, Kristin Chenoweth has spent a long time in the celebrity spotlight, yet always just on the outer edges.

Born Kristi Dawn Chenoweth 40 years ago, this Oklahoma-born girl got her start singing in church choirs and studying voice at Oklahoma City University. She earned a degree in musical theater and a MA in opera, and she then moved into pageant life by getting runner-up in the Miss Oklahoma contest of 1991 - a loss that she still jokes about fake-bitterly in interviews.

Due to the writers strike, many shows stayed on the air this fall even though their ratings were poor. The future doesn't look so good for programs such as Bionic Woman, Journeyman, and K-Ville. There are, however, several dramas that cemented their places in our "must see" lists.

5. "Dexter" - While this show has never really delivered on the intimate look into a psychopath that it seemed to promise in its initial previews, it does remain one of the more entertaining pieces of pulp on television. This season saw Dexter's underwater burial ground discovered, causing...

Matthew Perry Re-Visits 'Friends'

July 25th, 2007 7:00pm EDT
