Tommy Chong Reveals Why He "Can't Be the Stoner" on Dancing

Tommy Chong, Peta Murgatroyd

Tommy Chong has a reputation to uphold.

It's 4:20 on the dot when Chong calls (10 minutes ahead of our scheduled interview time) to discuss his journey thus far on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars — and, for a man who's parlayed several decades of pot jokes into a career, that can't be a coincidence.

Larry Hagman to Appear Posthumously on CBS' I Get That A Lot

Larry Hagman

Larry Hagman fans will be able to see the dearly departed Dallas star on the small screen this spring.

Hagman, who died in November, will be featured on the CBS special I Get That A Lot, in which celebrities masquerade as ordinary people and then act like they're not stars when they're inevitably recognized. The actor filmed his segment in September, and appears as a salesman offering free samples of barbecue sauce, according to the network.

Thursday TV in Review: Rotten Rob, Finder, Person of Interest and More

The Finder

There's a deadly serious competition brewing this calendar year regarding a peculiar sort of bragging right: Who has the worst new comedy of 2012? Is it ABC, with the clumsy drag farce Work It? NBC, with the shrill swill of Are You There, Chelsea? (Fox doesn't enter the fray until this weekend with the launch of the negligible animated ...

Matt's Weekend Picks: March 11-13

Battle of Los Angeles

Fringe (Friday, 9/8c, Fox)
Hard to imagine the show topping its most recent episode — the haunting "Subject 13" flashback into Olivia and Peter's childhood — but any story that puts Walter Bishop center stage is worth watching, and this week the mournful mad scientist is busy trying to delay the damage he's done to the wall between universes. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, the Fringe Team is on the case of thieves who defy gravity. Now let's see Fringe defy the gravity of those Friday night ratings.

Battle of Los Angeles (Saturday, 9/8c, Syfy)
Gotta give Syfy bonus points for cheekiness. On the same weekend the big-budget alien-invasion adventure Battle: LA hits the big screen, Syfy's knowingly cheesy... read more

Why Fans of Lost, Cinco de Mayo, and Lindsay Lohan May Want to Check Out Machete

Machete

Uh, wow. Robert Rodriguez's Mexploitation-inspired Machete might seem, at first glance, to have a limited audience. It's about a Mexican man who kills his enemies with, yes, machetes, and is an offshoot from Grindhouse, the Rodriguez-Quentin Tarantino collaboration that did only slightly better box office than the cult classics that inspired it. But the Machete trailer Rodriguez cheekily released to coincide with Cinco de Mayo suggests his film may have something for almost everyone. To wit:

Losties: Show veterans Michelle Rodriguez and Jeff Fahey have key roles.

Arizonans: The new trailer thoughtfully opens with a ... read more

Without Hope, All Is Lost

Today’s TV sermon, inspired by tonight’s wonderfully entertaining Hurley-centric episode of Lost, is all about hope. About not giving up hope, even when the TV gods seem to be working against our innate optimism that all good things come to those who patiently wait and watch.I have hope for Lost, always have had. The show may never regain the mass audience of its first season, and that was probably inevitable. As the show got denser and the island more cluttered with new characters and enigmas, not all created equal, the impatient among us gave up, screaming “not another Twin Peaks!” and drifted away to more predictable shores. Their loss. Even at its worst, which arguably came in the ill-conceived six-episode “pod” last fall, Lost is still one of TV’s most ambitious and spectacular productions, blessed with a fascinatingly diverse cast (this year, largely underused until now) that reveals new depths with each flashback into their back stories.

Celebrity Duets: An Inside Look

Hal Sparks, Wayne Brady, Lucy Lawless and Carly Patterson, Celebrity Duets

You've seen them dance. You've seen them lose weight. You've even seen them ice-skate. Now it's time for celebrities to grab a mike and start singing. The contestants on Fox's Celebrity Duets will have a little help from well-known recording artists such as Clint Black, Macy Gray and Chaka Khan, so we're hoping the audience will be spared the torture of another William Hung. But with Simon Cowell wearing the executive-producer hat, anything is possible. The show (premiering Aug. 29) is hosted by Wayne Brady and features eight celebrity "nonsingers" — wrestling champion Chris Jericho, actress Lea Thompson, Queer Eye lifestyle expert Jai Rodriguez, Xena's Lucy Lawless, actor Cheech Marin, Olympian gymnast Carly Patterson, Fresh Prince's Alfonso Ribeiro and comedian Hal Sparks. The warbling wannabes will be competing for $100,000, to be donated to the read more
