Poor Paula, she was devastated to learn that networks typically don't keep their lowest rated shows.
Today it was announced that NBC's upcoming sitcom adaptation of Chelsea Handler's memoir Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea has found its 20-year-old version of Chelsea Handler in Laura Prepon, a TV veteran who is 30, and a mere five years younger than Chelsea Handler's (alleged, because, come on) current age. We're not saying Laura Prepon won't do a decent job, but nevertheless, this means it's time to cast other comedians' memoirs with their TV-inappropriate counterparts. Because you know TV executives would do half this crap.
Maybe it's all the sale-priced Valentine's Day chocolate I bought this morning, but next season's new shows are starting to sound good.
So think of Mad Love as How I Met Your Mother if that show had begun when Ted met the mother, instead of looking back at everything that unfolded in the years leading up to it. But, you know, way less funny. Not only is this new CBS series about friends andcouples, but they also hang out in a bar that is nearly identical to the one on HIMYM.
Every Who down in Whoville loved Christmas a lot, but Michael Gambon, who was guest starring in the Doctor Who Christmas special, did not.
The International Toy Fair is happening in New York this week, and we were surprised to see that AMC's The Walking Dead has become the latest TV show to get action figures, after only six episodes. While zombie toys are always a good thing, we can't help but be disappointed that the lackluster horror series got toys, when some of our favorite current TV shows didn't. Here are some toy lines we wish they'd announced instead.
Love is in the air today, and so is lovely TV news.
Oprah gets even more money? Happy Friday, Oprah! Is Oprah's wealth ever news though?
This show is not, nor will it ever be, Grey's Anatomy. However, last night's episode, which I primarily watched because it featured the return of Xander the rapist, delivered a major shock that I totally didn't see coming. And that's saying something because when visiting Shondaland, I almost always have a hunch of what's coming (except for Dell's demise, because that was just mishandled and I still can't really talk about that). Anyway, this twist threw me for a loop... and in a good way. [Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't watched.]
After covering pawn shows and fat shows, it is now time for "Cable Showdown" to tackle two of our favorite wedding shows in all of cable: TLC's Say Yes to the Dress and WEtv's My Fair Wedding with David Tutera. Both are great shows about adults believing in fairy tales, but which is the superior effort? We break down each series to its fundamentals and make our case below.
