Sen. Barack Obama is looking for total TV domination on Oct. 29.
Not only will the Democratic presidential hopeful reach out to Americans via three major broadcasters with a 30-minute "closing argument" TV spot, but Obama will also hit the cable circuit, making his fourth appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Obama, who will appear via satellite from the campaign trail in Florida, last appeared on the program on April 21, the night before the Pennsylvania primary. While this latest visit comes as the Daily Show celebrates its highest monthly ratings ever ...
Pushing Daisies, Sen. Barack Obama
Barack Obama's 30-minute ad may be pre-empting the World Series, but it won't uproot ABC's airing of Pushing Daisies.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has decided to air Daisies in its usual 8 pm/ET time period Wednesday, ending weeks of discussion. ABC wasn't mentioned when Obama's campaign first bought the roughly $1 million half hours from NBC, Fox and CBS, and the Alphabet has kept mum since. One source, however, claims ABC ...
This episode took a step back from the "let's divide the camp of heroes" arc and dealt primarily with the messy Petrelli family and its tale of three sons. Arthur Petrelli has already proven to be quite a baddie, but tonight, his game got mental, pitting his sons against one another and their mother. Papa Petrelli also brought Mohinder into the fold while Daphne was sent on a disturbing mission, Claire found comfort from an unexpected acquaintance and Hiro and Ando chose their path ... or had a path chosen for them.
In this episode, Nora wanted money from investors, but found herself in need of a little self-confidence. Likewise, Saul wanted to not be bored, but was in need of a goal, Sarah wanted a new job, but was in need a better salary (and a nanny!) and Kevin wanted to make partner and impress Scotty's family, but was in need of a hug. As the name of the episode says But as the Rolling Stones remind us (and as the name of the episode implies), you can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need. Would that be true for the Walkers? Let's find out.
Mad Men's second season is now behind us, leaving viewers to ponder the possibilities of what lies in store when the show returns for its recently announced third season. If we know creator Matt Weiner, there's no telling where the stories of Don Draper & Co. will go. But based on what we know right now, we compiled the questions we'd most like to see answered and even took our best guess at how it will all shake out. Don't like our theories? Share your hypotheses and own burning questions after the jump.
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
As Mad Men drew its riveting second season to a close, the world as these characters knew it was coming to an end — both inside and outside of Sterling Cooper. The fears and uncertainties caused by the Cuban missile crisis gave rise to folks getting their lives in order, either by correcting the wrongs of their pasts, growing into the adult they have been pretending to be or confessing a secret and releasing the hidden burden they have been carrying. As death loomed, so did the promise of new life. As confession healed, it also tormented. As power was attained, it was also lost. And the man we've known as Don Draper has accepted that he and Dick Whitman are two sides of the same coin, realizing that his hope (and the hope for the rest of these characters) to see tomorrow rests on finding that comfortable middle ground between the two extremes.
Sarah Shahi and Damian Lewis, Life
In this tough, low-rated TV season, NBC is the first network to reshuffle its lineup. What's the Peacock's solution? Crime night!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, starting Wednesday Nov. 5, NBC will present a block of crime dramas: Knight Rider at 8 pm/ET, Life at 9 pm (moving in from Fridays at 10), and the return of longtime staple Law & Order at 10 pm.
Details on the other programming tweaks after the jump.
The mother and brother of Oscar-winning actress and onetime American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson were found slain in their home on Chicago's South Side on Friday, the apparent result of domestic violence, say law enforcement officials. Police also said Hudson's nephew was missing from the scene; as of Saturday morning the 7-year-old had yet to be found.
Police told the Chigago Tribune that one suspect in the double homicide ...
While Don Draper is washing his sins away in the Pacific, Pete Campbell is losing an account over in-law squabbles and Sterling Cooper's partners are allowing the agency to be sold, at least one of Mad Men's characters has it together: Peggy Olsen. Or does she?
One thing we know for sure is that she now has a new office to go with that new hair cut. And while Peggy probably cares most about getting away from that noisy Xerox machine, actress Elisabeth Moss was more than ready for Peggy's new 'do. "I was so glad to be rid of that ponytail," Moss says. "I wore it every day, with a few exceptions. You just have no idea how badly I wanted it gone."
After the jump, Moss teases a "satisfying" answer to viewers' questions and Peggy's big confession.
