Well it's official. Allison Janney can do everything. Act. Sing. Ice skate with Smurfs. Hell, she even makes Mr. Sunshine watchable.
Last night, the multiple-Emmy winner once again saved the show with a pitch-perfect performance of the musical variety ...
"It was the most surreal experience of my life," Allison Janney says of dueting with five-time Grammy winner James Taylor for Mr. Sunshine's March 16 episode. The singer guest stars on the ABC comedy as Billy, the ex-husband of Janney's Crystal. Turns out the exes had a lounge act and reunite to sing Leon Russell's "A Song For You," which Janney says "is probably one of the hardest songs to sing for someone who hadn't sung since stepping off the 9 to 5 stage over a year earlier."

I love Hawaii Five-0, but how long is McGarrett's investigation into his father's case going to last? — Melinda
ADAM: Not as long as you might think: Co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski promises that many of the "champ box" mysteries will be solved by season's end, including who or what exactly John McGarrett was investigating and who replaced the stolen money from the evidence locker. "I think fans will be really surprised at how deep we go and how much we learn by the end of the season," Zbyszewski says. "That's not to say that we're not going to continue to explore the McGarrett mythology anymore, because there plenty more to milk in Season 2."

If you hadn't heard — the screams of those irate Cougar Town fans were quite loud — Matthew Perry returned to series TV last night on Mr. Sunshine. And since almost every outlet known to man has run a review of his new sitcom about the misanthropic manager of a sports entertainment arena (mostly unkind assessments of the reworked pilot, the forced writing and the abusive decision to ...
Matthew Perry, Timothy Olyphant
Some very significant Wednesday night comings and goings in what has turned out to be an incredibly busy TV week. We welcome back an old sitcom Friend with conflicted emotions, but there's no doubting our enthusiasm for the return of a certain soft-talking, fast-shooting U.S. Marshal, and there's no hiding our sorrow as we bid farewell to a modern classic about small-town Americana and the game of life (also: football).
According to Allison Janney, it only took one line of dialogue to convince her to return to series television after a four-year absence.
"'Have you seen a small white pill with some Spanish written on it?'" she said, quoting her Mr. Sunshine character. "I read the first line that Crystal said and I knew I was going to play it."
After playing White House press secretary (and later Chief of Staff) C.J. Cregg on The West Wing for six seasons, the 51-year-old actress says she was looking for a role as far from the morally upright C.J. as possible. Crystal is the pill-popping, narcissistic owner of an arena and the boss of Ben (Matthew Perry), who seems to be going through something of a...

In ABC's midseason comedy Mr. Sunshine, Matthew Perry plays Ben, a self-involved manager of a middling sports arena — or, in Perry's words, a previous version of himself.
"I like to say this character is me five years ago," the actor said Sunday during the show's session at the Television Critics Association fall preview. In the first episode, Ben suffers a crisis of conscience when his would-be girlfriend Alice (Better Off Ted's Andrea Anders) leaves him on his 40th birthday. "I'm very in touch with that selfish guy trying to have a better life."
