My Name Is Earl
This ep started off a little slowly, with Lorelai ogling the Twickum house, pointlessly bantering with Luke over Star Wars, then adopting a dog as the most obvious Rory replacement ever. Let's get to the good stuff already! I started getting seriously impatient with loony-tune T.J's over-the-top antics. (Smashing a huge hole in Lorelai's house? Come on, now — I know Stars Hollow does quirky, but this guy makes Kirk look normal.) Things definitely picked up in the last 15 minutes when Rory went to see Luke at the diner. She looked totally crushed when she walked in, then completely devastated when Luke told her about the engagement. Her poor, sad face broke my heart. (Though I do have to say Alexis Bledel looks absolutely gorgeous this season. I'm not sure exactly what's changed since last May; maybe it's the longer, flowy hair?) I'm with Lorelai — he shouldn't have told her, even just as filler in an awkward conversation. Then again, if Lorelai wants to
[Editor's Note: The Teen Choice Awards were rebroadcast on Wednesday night on the TV Guide Channel.] I have to say right away, our TV Guide Channel kicked butt on the official red carpet two-hour preshow, and I'd state this even if I didn't work here. Kimberly Caldwell, Rosanna Tavarez and Chris Booker were awesome hosts and set the proper tone for Fox's awards show. Speaking of which…8:00 pm Gwen Stefani opens the show with her No. 1 hit "Hollaback Girl." Can I stress how much I love the original, unedited version and how much I detest the edited version? I know it's network TV, but why perform the song if it has to be edited? Sing "Rich Girl" or something else. All those "shhh" sounds go right through me. OK — got that off my chest.8:06 I said this about the MTV Movie Awards and I'll say it here. How does Andy Dick continue to get booked on these awards each year? So. Not. Funny.8:12 Jim Car
Every time we think Gilmore Girls can't possibly surprise us again, the beloved WB dramedy (Tuesdays at 8 pm/ET) goes and does just that. And so, for that matter, does its cast. Take, for instance, Alexis Bledel. This year, the 22-year-old ingenue took her character, virginal brainiac Rory, from all-night cramming sessions to one-night stands, got herself cast against type as a Sin City hooker and, in this TVGuide.com interview, gave up a rare insight into her real-life romance with her former leading man, American Dreams heartthrob Milo Ventimiglia. What will she possibly do for an encore? Read on and find out!TVGuide.com: What do you think of the new, sexual Rory?Alexis Bledel: It's been different. I hope that it's more about relationships than it is about just her being slutty.
TVG: Since you have such great chemistry with Matt Czuchry (Logan), I'd say that's
If there's any justice in the world, come September, Gilmore Girls leading lady Lauren Graham will be standing on stage at the Shrine Auditorium clutching a certain gold statue with sharp, pointy wings. Of course, when it comes to the annual Emmy derby, justice can be an elusive thing — and that's particularly true for WB stars. "Lauren should have been nominated 110 years ago," asserts Gilmore's creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino. For her part, the 38-year-old actress prefers not to dwell on such matters, insisting, "Most of the positive stuff that's happened to me has just dropped out of nowhere." Well, there's certainly been a lot of positive stuff going on in Stars Hollowland this season, thanks in large part to the long-awaited romance between Graham's Lorelai and Scott Patterson's Luke. During a shooting break on the show's Burbank, Calif., set, Graham opened up about Girls' current creative an
Even before making his Gilmore Girls debut last week, Matt Czuchry knew very well how we would react to his character, Yale sophomore Logan. Not only does the smart-mouthed Ivy Leaguer push the buttons of America's sweetheart, Rory (Alexis Bledel), but his snobbery is rivaled only by that of her persnickety grandmother, Emily.
"I could tell people were going to hate me on sight," the baby-faced 27-year-old shares with TV Guide Online. "Logan is completely unapologetic. He'll go off in the summer and crash Daddy's yacht into a buoy, and his dad will fly him away in a helicopter so he won't have to deal with any of the consequences.
"Obviously, this guy is 180 degrees different from Rory and from her past boyfriends, so how could the audience not be kind of spun out when they see him come on? But," he adds with the snicker of a born pot-stirrer, "that's what we're going for."
