From just about the minute people heard that NBC was developing an adult musical series about Broadway show-business, ‘Glee‘ comparisons and contrasts flew left and right. Now that ‘Smash‘ has come and establish itself as a separate entity, will ‘Fame‘ face the same stigma upon returning to TV? Will ‘Fame’ face greater scrutiny now that ‘Glee’ is headed to New York, or will people remember which came first? Who’s behind the new series?
With ‘Glee‘ season 4 fast picking up its pace for a September 13 debut, most of the new footage and promotional images we’ve seen came from Kate Hudson’s sexy NYADA dance instructor Cassandra July, but what of Sarah Jessica Parker? To date only precious few details have been released about the former ‘Sex and the City’ star’s turn with the singing graduates, so what role will she take in the coming season? And how would you like a first look?
After years and a number of Emmys earned playing obsessive-compulsive USA detective ‘Monk,’ Tony Shalhoub has his pick of the litter when it comes to new roles. Is it any wonder then, that he’d eye a return to comedy on the TV landscape’s most popular network for comedy, CBS? But who might the character actor play following the fastidious Adrian Monk, and what show would bring him back to the small screen?
Never fear, fans of ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ anxiously awaiting the show’s sixth season. A little applied physics never hurt anybody, at least seriously enough to delay taping. Well, actually applied physics could kill any number of people based on its principles alone, but not today! Despite a (reportedly) gruesome car crash, actress Mayim Bialik will live to hold Sheldon Cooper’s hand once more. But did she leave a piece of herself behind?
Haven’t you ever been groggily watching ‘The Price is Right’ one morning, only to find yourself thinking, “boy, that reasonably priced set of crystal stemware would seem more obtainable if it were presented by a handsome chap, rather than this distractingly attractive gal?” Word for word, you say? Well, good news everyone! ‘The Price is Right’ is about to become equal opportunity, and you could be the next one to come on down!
Sad news to report today, as former ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ star and noted acting teacher Ron Palillo died this morning of a heart attack, at the age of 63. Palillo was reportedly found by his lifelong partner Joseph Gramm early this morning in their Beach Gardens home, before being taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. The news was reported by one of Palillo’s close personal friends.
It’s been kind of a slow day for TV news, what with most of the major Television Critics Association press tour panels having taken place, but in some cases a slow day is just the calm before the storm. That’s why we’re equally delighted, bewildered and horrified to announce that ‘The Brady Bunch’ will be gracing our TV screens once more in the near future, with a rebooted cast. Also, Vince Vaughn is behind it. Yeah, it’s that kind of day.
When enough stars leave a series, you’d think it might be time to throw in the towel. ‘The Office‘ doesn’t seem to be able to take the hint, but now ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ is about to amputate its arguably most well-received leading man. No, don’t worry, Patrick Dempsey will still be around, but Seattle Grace Hospital is about to lose some serious steam when Eric Dane leaves the series for ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9. But will his exit be addressed?
For those still worried about ‘The Office‘ season 9, what with its ever-diminishing array of stars following the departure of James Spader, show-runner Paul Lieberstein, Mindy Kaling, and eventually the reduced presence of both B.J. Novak and Rainn Wilson, there’s good news! In addition to a finalized deal for Clark Duke to join the series, ‘The Office’ season 9 has just picked up yet another fresh-faced regular in actor Jake Lacy. But, who will the former ‘Better With You’ star play?
Whether or not you followed the first season of ‘Once Upon A Time,’ you should know that the hit ABC series delves into quite a bit of classic fairy tale mythology, everything from traditional Grimm to an overload of Disney characters. Now, following the Comic-Con 2012 reveal that the Storybrooke characters could take a trip to Neverland, might someone be headed over the rainbow as well?
We all know that ‘The Office‘ is going to look pretty different next year, what with Mindy Kaling and James Spader departing, Paul Lieberstein stepping down as show-runner, Ed Helms, John Krasinski and B.J. Novak all taking on reduced roles, and Dwight potentially spinning off, but who’s going to actually join the ensemble? We also knew that Catherine Tate would join ‘The Office’ season 9 as a new series regular, but the latest reported to join Dunder-Mifflin is a pretty ‘Kick-Ass‘ former ‘Greek’ star.
‘Community‘ fans are the first people to single out NBC for disregarding the show, by either never giving enough promotion, or changing its show-runner without so much of a phone call, and the newly-released official schedule for the fall is just icing on the cake. So just how long will we have to wait for fresh episodes of ‘Community,’ or even ‘30 Rock?’
