The CW has not only given Surviving the Filthy Rich (née How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls) yet another new title Privileged it has recast one of its lead roles. Anne Archer, aka she who barely survived Glenn Close's bunny-boiling rampage, now will play grandma to the pair of Hilton-esque celebunots being tutored by JoAnna Garcia's Yale grad. Marsha Mason plays Grams in the original pilot, so it's goodbye to the Goodbye Girl? Matt MitovichRelated:• 90210 Anchors CW's All-New Tuesday
Question: I'm a faithful reader of yours, and I'm hoping that you might share what you've heard about the possibility of Lifetime's Side Order of Life returning for a second season. It didn't seem to get much attention after its premiere, but I found it to be a charming little show for Sunday evenings to help me ease back into the work week. I particularly enjoyed Diana-Maria Riva's performance as Vivy. It was great to see a strong yet vulnerable woman fighting a devastating disease with such grace and aplomb, not to mention being treated as sexy and desirable without being skeletal-thin! There was enough resolution in the finale that I can accept it as the series ending, but I would enjoy checking in to see how these characters have proceeded with their lives. Any word on its fate?
Answer: No word yet. Lifetime is currently in development mode, shooting two pilots (one with Lorraine Bracco and one with Beau Bridges and Anne Archer), and I'm told that once they're completed, the
I'm not the official TV Guide blogger for Moonlight, but I just wanted to start off tonight's Ghost Whisperer post by saying how much I enjoyed watching both shows back-to-back. Ghost Whisperer + Moonlight = Freaky Friday on CBS, and I think they're a perfect supernatural fit. Now then, on with the show!Welcome to The Underneath?At (last) season's end, I felt that Melinda's return from death would alter her connection to the afterlife, making it more malevolent than she's prepared to deal with. Now, at (this) season's beginning, my initial feelings concerning the crossroads on which Mel stands, is that Grandview is turning into a similar place to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Hellmouth. Not quite as... Hellmouth-y, but the similarities between "the underneath" getting ready to burst at any time in Grandview, and Sunnydale's Hellmouth hurling all varieties of demons and vampires from underground can't be denied. The difference seems to be that Grandview may be a kinder, gentler wellspri...
Josh Schwartz's superbly entertaining NBC premiere Chuck is bringing on The O.C.'s own Rachel Bilson for a multi-episode run as a romantic option for the titular geek, says USA Today. For more on Chuck and the season's other new shows, listen to the special TV Guide Talk podcast, featuring me, Ausiello and Roush and available Friday. Martin Mull has joined the TNT light-drama pilot Family Man, playing William H. Macy's older brother who can barely hold down a job at Astroburger. (I'm already laughing!) Also per the Reporter, Anne Archer has boarded Lifetime's Family Practice pilot as the Kennedyesque clan's matriarch, opposite Beau Bridges. Lifetime has inked a deal to develop a comedy project starring identical twins Natalie and Nicole Garza. Judy Davis and James Purefoy (Rome) will topline Diamonds, a $15 million miniseries about a lady senator whose daughter is murdered in Africa, says Variety.
OK, again, digging yall who checked in last week. The fun we had, huh? And what better way to recover from the lost joys of The Land of the Lost than with some love for the City of Brotherly Love. As bhm1304 guessed last week, the best FX sitcom youre not watching is
Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.Granted, while its not really always sunny here, as a right proud Philly boy who just spent Labor Day wandering Center City, reading in Rittenhouse Square and chowing down on The Continentals insane crab Pad Thai, I have to say that this town does indeed rock.Much like this dirty little gem. Centered on foul-mouthed pub owners Mac, Charlie and Dennis, his barmaid sister Sweet Dee and a still unnamed coffee-shop waitress who could teach Friends Gunther a thing or two about stealing scenes, Sunny is best compared to Seinfeld
if Jerrys posse had less morals and raging drinking problems. Once Danny DeVito joins in for season 2 as Dee and Dennis...
