Mike & Molly is television's latest answer to how fat we are as a nation, and who better for the job than mass appeal sitcom guru Chuck Lorre? Well, a lot of people, if what you're looking for is something thoughtful, and better than a clunky collection of bad fat jokes. But what's that, CBS? You're not looking for that? You just want a hit? Oh. Then this will probably be great for you.
So many new DVD sets! So little time/space! Barring our sudden ability to manipulate time and space, we're gonna do these rapid-fire style. Do not feel slighted, little DVD sets -- you are all important. To somebody.
I will never doubt Terry O'Quinn again. Ever.
The much advertised (nay, relentlessly advertised) premiere of The Event is finally happening tonight, so therefore the show's two biggest stars -- Jason Ritter and Blair Underwood -- participated in a media call to face their fears of early cancellation and meandering plot focus. Highlights of said call (parts of which were actually kind of reassuring!) after the jump.
It's safe to say that Syfy's Battlestar Galactica is one of the best television shows of all time, so it isn't a complete surprise that any role that a veteran of the show takes seems like a downgrade. Still, some of the cast members have fared better than others following the show's end. With one of the key players now starring on fall's much-hyped Hawaii Five-0, we were inspired to rank all of the major actors' post-BSG stints. Who is still flying high and whose career has turned into a pile of space detritus? See our list below, ranked from best to worst.
It may seem unlikely that an original HBO gangster drama with a stellar cast and Oscar winner Martin Scorsese behind the camera would have much, if anything, in common with the gang of overly-tanned fist pumpers wreaking havoc on both clubs and our nation's intelligence. But I was surprised to find plenty of similarities between Boardwalk Empire and Jersey Shore beyond both of them being set on the sandy shores of the Garden State. Some things just never change, especially in South Jersey.
Finally, ham you can eat in the bathroom.
Everyone knows Chuck is a spy series, but it's just as much a comedy series and a key element of that comedy is Chuck's best friend and sidekick, Morgan Grimes. With the new season kicking off this week, and Morgan recently integrated into the CIA's Team Bartoswki, we were happy to sit in on a conference call with actor Josh Gomez and executive producer Chris Fedak to debrief us on how the season will start and where it will end up.
Most supporting characters on TV deserve their side roles because additional screen time would quickly wear out their appeal. But The Office is reportedly considering shifting the show's focus from whoever's the new manager of Dunder-Mifflin to one of the existing characters once Steve Carell leaves after the 2010-11 season. It's an intriguing idea that we think might make sense for plenty of other series. Here are the scene-stealing characters we'd most like to see take center stage:
"We've got to go back to the island, J.J.! We've got to go baaack!"
