Theyre back. Miamis busiest plastic surgeons are back in business, but theyve moved operations to Los Angeles, where they hope theyll duplicate some of their successes. The Nip/Tuck duo have a rough start, but soon, Sean and Christian have everything they think they want.TV Guide hung out on the red carpet at Saturday's Nip/Tuck season premiere screening at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. While newly ultrathin star Joely Richardson was a no-show, and her former beau, John Hensley (who plays her son Matt on the FX series), slipped by reporters, some cast and crew were willing to share stories.Dylan Walsh tells us that with Sean McNamara and Christian Troy moving to sunny Southern California, a new angle was offered to the series: "something we havent done before farcical humor... with Sean working on a medical show ['Hearts and Scalpels'] as a technical advisor has freed us up to make fun, silly fun, of our show, medical shows, TV, the indu...
Ocean of Fear: Worst Shark Attack Ever by Tim Calver/Discovery Channel
It's just like the sleazy mayor in Jaws says: "You yell, 'Barracuda,' everybody says, 'Huh? What?' You yell, 'Shark,' you've got a ratings smash in the middle of summer!" Discovery Channel's Sunday-night Shark Week special, Ocean of Fear: The Worst Shark Attack Ever, brought the cabler its best numbers ever for the annual feeding frenzy. The Richard Dreyfuss-narrated Shark Attack hooked 3.9 million total viewers, way more than 2003's Anatomy of a Shark Bite (which scared up 3.2 million). The 20th "Shark Week" runs through Saturday. In related news, Daryl Hannah, John Schneider and Armand Assante have signed on to star in Hallmark Channel's three-hour Shark Swarm, about... oh, come on. Read the title.
John Schneider, You've Got a Friend
John Schneider has gone from playing a good ol' boy on the enduring 1979-85 hit Dukes of Hazzard, to more fatherly roles like Clark Kent's dad on Smallville, to serving as the role model to a 12-year-old orphan in Hallmark Channel's You've Got a Friend (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET). He spoke to us about his journey.
TV Guide: Tell us about You've Got a Friend.Schneider: It's a fantastic movie to sit and watch with your whole family, which is very important to me these days — there seems to be less and less of that out there. It's a great story about the importance of big-brother relationships and fathers. I [think] it's really importan
The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra has scrapped a Dukes of Hazzard-themed July show featuring drop-bys from John Schneider and Tom Wopat, because some community members find the classic TV series which costars a Confederate-flag-emblazoned car racist and offensive. "It's a huge shock to me that in this day and age, people could be so narrow-minded," Schneider tells the Associated Press, adding that those in charge should examine "their knee-jerk reactions to someone else's prejudice and bigotry." The Pops, which consulted with a head-shaking NAACP, says in a statement, "We decided that some of the messages conveyed in the program are not consistent with [our] efforts to reach out to all [people]." Besides, they thought they'd be getting Jessica in a bikini.
John Glover, Smallville
While Clark, Lana, Lex and the rest of the Smallville "kids" ride their own romantic merry-go-round, something is quietly percolating between two of the elders, no less than Lex's dad and Clark's mom. To best ascertain Lionel's intentions toward the widow Martha Kent — as well as find out what he really thinks about Lex's own honey, Lana — TVGuide.com chatted up the prominent patriarch's portrayer, John Glover. (Smallville airs Thursdays at 8 pm/ET, on CW.)
TVGuide.com: OK, the first question I want to ask is: The mane, is that all yours?John Glover: Yes. [Chuckles] No extensions, no anything.
TVGuide.com: Do you think his leonine look is part of what makes Lionel such a force to be reckoned with?Glover: A lot of it, sure. Look at Sampson. And look at wha
SmallvilleThe 100th episode reairs in what needs to be the last repeat until July. Seriously, I'm in repeat overload. I've actually had to find other things to do with my time. Like, read. And although I do agree reading is FUNdamental, for a TV-obsessed girl like me, it's just not normal. So next week can't come fast enough, 'cause for the first time in five weeks, we'll get a new Smallville episode, and a little birdie tells me a certain fine guest star may make an appearance. That little birdie? The TVGuide.com listings.
OK, since this is the second time I've seen "Reckoning," and I know from the beginning Jonathan Kent is going to die, it's not as fun. For instance, I still have that damn James Blunt "You're Beautiful" song rattling around in m
John Schneider, Smallville
"Reckoning," the 100th episode of WB's Smallville (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET) lived up to the hype with the heroic, if not altogether unexpected, death of Jonathan Kent, who perished doing what he's done for much of the show's run: protecting adopted son Clark's secret. But what did original cast member John Schneider think of the patriarch's passing? TV Guide spoke to the actor about his reaction, what he is most thankful for, and more.
TV Guide: How do you feel about the way your character bowed out?John Schneider: I thought it was really, really good. For me it was reminiscent of The Red Badge of Courage. There was a character in The Red Badge of Courage who refused to die laying down. I th
Tom Welling, Smallville
Last week, WB's Smallville (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET) finally pulled the trigger on its much-trumpeted 100th-episode death, as John Schneider's Jonathan crossed over to that big farmhouse in the sky. Seeing as Clark's pop all but died at the hands of Lex's own dad, is one of comicdom's all-time great rivalries ready to rumble?
"It's a turning point," says Tom Welling, Smallville's young Man of Steel. "The episodes we're doing now are even better, I think, than what we've done in the past. From [here] on, the show is going to be very different from what it's been. We're finally going to be what the audience wanted the show to be."
What many Smallville fans wanted the show to be was darker, mor

Question: There are rumors going around that the rest of Smallville's season will be heavily focused on the possible romantic relationship between Lex and Lana. Is there any truth to this?
Answer: I'm afraid so, Matt. "Clark's relationship with Lana is going south because he's back to keeping secrets," reveals exec producer Al Gough in an interview I cribbed from my colleague, Damian J. Holbrook. "They're not sleeping together because he's got his powers back and he doesn't know what'll happen. [And] as Clark continues to lie, we'll see Lana and Lex growing closer." (For more on the fallout from Smallville's 100th episode — including an interview with John Schneider on the death of Jonathan Kent — go out and buy the new issue of TV Guide magazine when it goes on sale tomorrow. Please. I get a nickel for every copy sold. Honest.)
