Sandra Bernhard, GCB
The God-fearin' ladies of ABC's GCB are about to face their biggest adversary this side of Satan when the fabulously outrageous Sandra Bernhard guest stars on the ABC soap's May 6 season finale (or series finale, depending upon ABC's pick-up plans).
Bernhard plays Jewish eco terrorist Debby Horowitz, who kidnaps the ladies at the ground-breaking of the Condos for Christian Living, a resort they've invested in.
For the women of GCB, the most important book is obviously the Bible. But for many real Southern women, both past and present, there's also the testament of Scarlett O'Hara.
"I feel like if you're a girl in the South, you know Gone with the Wind better than anything," Leslie Bibb, who plays GCB's Amanda, tells TVGuide.com. "Scarlett O'Hara is such a quintessential Southern woman." So it only makes sense that when Carlene (Kristin Chenoweth) and Ripp (David James Elliott) decide to renew their vows on the first of two new GCB episodes airing Sunday (9/8c on ABC), they'll go with Gone with the Wind-themed nuptials for...

Question: Just wondering about Terra Nova and the rumors that they'll be shopping it around to another network. It took them pretty much forever to get the first season prepared, I'm assuming because of the special effects. If they wind up on another network, that probably means a smaller budget, faster production, fewer dinosaurs, more focus on the people, character-driven stories, etc. Right? Sounds entertaining to me. (I do confess, though Terra Nova struck me as a bit of a mess in some ways, I was looking forward to seeing how the story played out.)
"It wasn't a campaign. It was a bad reality show," concludes political operative Steve Schmidt (a forceful Woody Harrelson) toward the end of HBO's controversy-stirring Game Change (Saturday, 9/8c), a searing, sizzlingly well acted docudrama about the decision "to create a dynamic moment" in the 2008 presidential run of John McCain (a salty but sanguine Ed Harris) by selecting "a game-changing pick" in fellow maverick Sarah Palin, "the best actress in American politics."
Philadelphia Cream Cheese won't be spreading the good word during GCB.
Kraft has decided that it will no longer advertise its cream cheese during ABC's midseason show, which is based on the book series Good Christian Bitches, TMZ reports.
If the characters of GCB were any more colorful, they'd be musical cartoon animals. Like My Little Pony crossed with a drag revue penned by Tennessee Williams.
Originally titled Good Christian Belles (and before that, Good Christian Bitches), ABC's new Southern-fried farce is full of big hair, over-the-top characters and the kind of empty-calorie fun one has while getting gossipy with their gals and gays: It's snappy, loud and sure to tick off a ...
With Desperate Housewives leaving the airwaves in a few short months, ABC may be looking to see which show can fill the sexy, soapy high heels of the women of Wisteria Lane.
Enter GCB, the network's new drama, which follows a desperate (ex-)housewife — spurned former mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb) — who returns to Dallas after her cheating husband leaves her high and dry. But her hometown isn't exactly welcoming. Rather, Amanda encounters a group of back-stabbing, manipulative women (including Kristin Chenoweth's Carlene Cockburn ) who want to bring Amanda down.
GCB welcomes Sheryl Crow and Sandra Bernhard
Despite the catty similarities, the GCB cast is quick to point out that Dallas isn't the new Fairview. "It's not as broad a comedy," David James Elliott tells TVGuide.com, calling the show a mix of...
About as subtle as a Texas tornado, GCB storms onto ABC with hopes of delivering Sunday-best ratings. While Desperate Housewives limps into the sunset, this gaudy, bawdy send-up of gossipy Dallas church divas has a brash, giddy energy reminiscent of happier times on Wisteria Lane.
