It's hard to tell who's more excited about Kin Shriner's February 19 return to General Hospital — him or us! The most beloved third wheel in suds history, Shriner's Scotty Baldwin was married to Laura (Genie Francis) back when she famously fell in love with Luke (Anthony Geary). Will the poor guy finally get revenge? According to an ABC rep, "Scott Baldwin returns to Port Charles as most of the town is gathered at the Haunted Star for a Valentine's Day party and the first person he sees is Luke. Things will escalate very quickly between the two of them." TV Guide Magazine spoke with Shriner — a veteran of 12 serials — about the best job he ever had...
Shannon Woodward, Lucas Neff
We knew it wouldn't be all grins and giggles when three networks decided to stake out comedy ground on Tuesdays this season, cannibalizing the audience with too much of a quirky thing. Sure enough, the laughter ended last week for two of the night's more offbeat sitcoms: Fox's Ben and Kate and ABC's Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, both abruptly if not unexpectedly yanked from the schedule.
If there's an upside, it's that we get more to love, at least for now, of Fox's underappreciated Raising Hope (8/7), now airing back-to-back episodes off and on for several weeks.
Our top moments of the week:
15. Creepiest Misunderstanding: When New Girl's Jess discovers that one of her students is drawing mutilated deer, Nick thinks it's a warning sign of his impending homicidal tendencies. So he investigates. Of course he and Jess get caught red-handed at his house, where they learn that he doesn't want to kill his teacher, he's just working on a graphic novel. But there are stillhorrors to behold: The feisty older woman who lives with the student isn't his mom; it's his girlfriend.
14. Wettest Hook-Up: Get your minds out of the gutter, readers! When Mindy tries to orchestrate a casual hook-up with...
Prepare to see Uncle Jesse like you've never seen him before. On Tuesday's The New Normal, typical ladies' man John Stamos begins his guest arc as Brice, a new co-worker of Jane's (Ellen Barkin) with an indeterminate sexuality. Gay, straight, or something in between — you'll have to wait until the episode airs to find out. But one thing we will reveal is that, no matter Brice's sexuality, Stamos and Barkin do get a little hot 'n heavy!
Full House reunion
No way, Jose!
The cast of Full House — minus Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — gathered Saturday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show's premiere and...
Yeah, we know. After months of blasting the "hit song" of the summer in the car, in the gym and at home, it feels like having to listen to the ubiquitous "Call Me Maybe" one more time could drive someone over the edge. But what if instead of Carly Rae Jepsen's vocals, it was Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) singing a slowed-down arrangement as she explores the single life in New York?
Glee's Ryan Murphy Tweets Spoilers: The first group song, Sam's new lady and a break-up
Glee has recycled the most overplayed and stale pop songs to great success for three seasons, whether it be the Warblers' a capella take on Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" or the New Directions' first group performance of the karaoke staple "Don't Stop Believin'." So who's to say the glee clubbers can't achieve the same success with the current must-have songs of the summer? We examined the best and brightest offerings from Top 40 radio to offer the show's writing staff a few friendly suggestions for the new season. You're welcome!
Glee, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer
The Glee waiting game is over. At least a little. When announcing Fox's 2012-2013 TV schedule, entertainment president Kevin Reilly finally gave Gleeks a glimmer of what Season 4 will look like following the New Direction seniors' graduation. Instead of selfishly making Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) hang around McKinley next year like Lima losers, the show will follow the duo to a performing arts school in New York — where they'll run into the likes of Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker — while also still keeping up with New Directions. But will the show be able to pull it off? We look at why this approach may or may not succeed...
John Goodman and Roseanne Barr
This fall, the networks want to party like it's 1992. It was 20 years ago that stars like Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Kirstie Alley and John Stamos ruled the sitcom world. Now they're all back, and signed on to star in new comedy pilots this spring.
The trend started this season with Tim Allen's successful return to TV as the...
John Stamos is returning to Fox.
The former Glee guest-star has landed the leading role in Fox's Little Brother pilot. Stamos, best-known for playing Uncle Jesse on Full House, will portray...
Parminder Nagra is seeking to end her marriage of three years.
The Alcatraz star has filed for divorce from husband James Stenson, citing "irreconcilable differences," TMZ reports.
