Yvonne Strahovski and Cheryl Ladd
As NBC's spy caper Chuck heads toward the series finale, the final batch of shows will focus on Chuck and Sarah's past. On the emotional December 30 flashback episode, we'll finally be introduced to Sarah's mother, Emma, played by former Charlie's Angels star ....
The final season of Chuck is underway, and nervous fans are unsure of what to make of the titular Nerd Herder working without the Intersect.
"I'm a little hesitant to actually tell you if he'll actually get it back or not," co-executive producer Chris Fedak told reporters on a call to promote Friday's episode, "Chuck Versus the Bearded Bandit" (8/7c, NBC). "Chuck with the Intersect was a little too easy. We wanted to have more fun this season going back to Season 1 and Season 2 Chuck where things were difficult and complicated and he had to come up with his own Chuck solutions to problems."
Cheers to Cheryl Ladd for her divinely twisted guest appearance on NCIS.

The former Charlie's Angel got in touch with her devilish side as Mary, the doctor who snared the affections of coroner Donald "Ducky" Mallard (a never-more-charming David McCallum) after they met online. (DiNozzo's rendition of "Ducky's in Love," to the tune of Ricki Lee Jones' "Chuck E.'s in Love," was a nice touch.) But don't believe everything you see on the Internet: She turned out to be a psycho who murdered cheating military men via unwittingly self-induced overhydration.
Bloody Mary wanted to show Ducky something he'd never seen before, and in the process, Ladd showed us something we'd never seen before — her range as ...
As Fox takes a pause before the World Series moves back to St. Louis for the final game(s) starting Wednesday, tonight's main event is a supersized two-and-a-half hour live performance show of The X Factor (8/7c), begging the question: Is bigger actually better?
Before NBC's Chuck signs off, the spy caper will finally introduce us to Sarah's never-before-seen mother.
Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh
Charlie's Angels has seen a number of faces take on the duties of a crime-fighting angel: Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, Tanya Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Demi Moore.
Fall TV: Retrace three generations of Charlie's Angels
Now, Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor will join the ranks of their near-exclusive club — one that comes with both halos and fighting skills and even a billionaire boss. The three new angels certainly have some big high heels to fill, but they, along with a much fitter and younger John Bosley (Ramon Rodriguez), are ready for the challenge.
"I don't think there's...
Charlie's crime-fighting angels are still all the rage!
Not only will ABC have a new trio of femme fatales in the Charlie's Angels reboot, but CBS' NCIS has just snagged one of the alums for a hot role.

Las Vegas' Cheryl Ladd ages gracefully in Though None Go with Me (inset).
Cheryl Ladd, grandmother? Have we come to that point? Sort of, but not really. In the Hallmark Channel presentation Though None Go with Me (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET), Charlie's onetime Angel disappears behind old-age makeup to play Elizabeth Leroy Bishop, a woman who relates stories from her colorful and oft-times turbulent life — Amy Grabow plays Elizabeth as a young woman — to a grandchild. As anyone who has seen Ladd on Las Vegas knows, it must have taken a lot of powder to make this heavenly beauty look anything but robust.

Las VegasWell, they didn't call this episode "Down and Dirty" for nothing. A porn convention takes up temporary residence at the Montecito, which means I can't write about half the things that happened; I'm going to take the high road and remain somewhat family-friendly. Let me just say that there was an ample amount of adult-oriented puns, situations, fun porn movie titles and a cameo from some guy I've never heard of named Ron Jeremy. (That's the story I'm sticking to.)
Let's move on to things of the Barry Bostwick persuasion, shall we? Called on to direct Big Ed's TV commercial, it turns out his character used to date Ed's wife, Jillian. Let's see, Cheryl Ladd and Barry Bostwick. A few Googles later and I find out that back in the day (1978), Barry was in a Se
Don't get me wrong; I'm beyond happy that the men and women of the Montecito are back, but it's a little bittersweet. While skinny-mini Lara Flynn Boyle is in as the new casino owner, Marsha Thomason is out. I really liked Nessa, despite the fact the show never quite knew what to do with her. Nessa's disappearance into the British version of the witness-protection program isn't the only thing causing some serious frown lines for poor Ed. His entire crew is scattered all over the place: Danny hasn't been hanging around since his dad died; Delinda has been ignoring her pop; Mike's been working as a valet again; Mary's supposedly enjoying life with her cute lawyer boyfriend; and Sam's nowhere to be found. So that leaves Big Ed to handle Boyle's Monica Mancuso by his lonesome. Per Mancuso's orders, Ed has to get Danny to come back to work, leaving his No. 1 guy to reenlist Mike and Sam. Mary and Delinda remain on the outside — for the time being anyway.
