Analysis: In the Battle for TV's Future, The Networks Start Fighting Back

Kevin Bacon

When Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly stood in front of reporters in January and proclaimed the death of pilot season, he drew a good amount of ribbing from the competition.

Reilly was making the case for torching the broadcast primetime model as we know it — starting with the annual tradition of everyone developing everything all at once. It was a grand pronouncement, particularly in an industry that talks big but can rarely turn on a dime. Nonetheless, change is afoot, and Reilly's not the only one flipping the script.

Rake: Is Greg Kinnear TV's Most Likable Antihero?

Greg Kinnear, Miranda Otto

Stop us if you've heard this one before. Fox's new drama Rake features a main character who, despite being pretty great at his job, is a complete trainwreck in every other aspect of his life.

But unlike the Dr. Gregory Houses or Don Drapers littering the past and present TV landscape, Rake's protagonist, defense attorney Keegan Deane, is a bit less rough around the edges. Indeed, most of the time, he's quite the charmer, which probably has something to do with the fact that he's played by Greg Kinnear.

"Greg's kind of perfect because there is this likability about him that people are prepared to forgive all sorts of things," creator and executive producer Peter Duncan, who created the Australian drama of the same name that inspired the Fox series, tells TVGuide.com... read more

Thursday Review: Rake, a Community Farewell, Vampire Turns 100

Greg Kinnear

Fox enjoyed eight seasons of great success with House, a high-concept medical procedural about an incorrigible, deeply flawed medical genius. I'm not sure I could make it through eight episodes (I've seen two so far) of Louse — also known as Rake (Thursday, 9/8c) — which must have been pitched to Fox, via the series' Australian roots, as "House in a courtroom," a high-concept legal dramedy about an incorrigible, deeply flawed law maverick.

Greg Kinnear Talks Returning to TV in Fox's Rake

Greg Kinnear

He's the man you want on your side, especially if you're a serial killer. Greg Kinnear stars in the new Fox ­legal dramedy Rake as Keegan Deane, a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney so bad at life that he lives in a dump above a Chinese restaurant and has to beg for a ride to work. Keegan is being hounded by the IRS and is frequently roughed up by his bookie, but thanks to his humor, smarts and naughty-boy twinkle, he's a superstar before the jury. And, really, who... read more

Rake First Look: Fox Asks "What Would Keegan Do?"

Greg Kinnear

Keegan Deane, the lovable mess at the center of Fox's new drama Rake, isn't exactly the guy you want to ask for advice.

Winter TV: Get scoop on the must-see new shows

However, that's just what Fox is doing in a series of new promos for the show. In the exclusive clips below, the show asks "What Would Keegan Do?" in a number of everyday situations, including taking a nap or teaching your kid how to drive. Needless to say, we don't think viewers will find Keegan's suggestions helpful — unless they're seeking tips on what not to do.

Rake, based on an Australian series of the same name... read more

Rake's Greg Kinnear on His Brilliant, Tragic Character: "He Learns Nothing"

Greg Kinnear

Rake star Greg Kinnear says he's nothing like his disheveled, broke, womanizing character, but executive producer Peter Tolan begs to differ.

"[On Day 1], Kinnear showed up drunk with a hooker named Tammy on his arm, claiming it was a part of his process," Tolan joked Monday at Fox's Television Critics Association winter TV previews, reading from his "journal" that also poked fun at the controversy over Girls' nudity, dining at Les Moonves' house and not ever speaking of Dads. (This, by the way, comes from the guy who previously took off his pants at a TCA panel.)
