Tony Awards: Let's (Again) Put On a (Hostless) Show!

For the second year in a row, CBS' broadcast of the Tony Awards will be host-free, Playbill.com reports. Instead, a cavalcade of big-name actors will engage in awkward banter before bestowing the awards on June 10. Presenters include Liev Schreiber, David Hyde Pierce and Kevin Spacey, all of whom are currently gracing the Great White Way, as well as past Broadway babies like Vanessa Williams, Neil Patrick Harris, Rainn Wilson and William Petersen. Marg Helgenberger will be there, too. (We hear she attended a Broadway show once.) — Reporting by Raven Snook read more

You mentioned that you have ...

Question: You mentioned that you have recorded CSI this season. What have you thought of the miniature killer and the whole Liev Schreiber-as-Keppler arc? Answer: I love the miniature-model-making serial-killer story line. It's the sort of thing that elevates CSI above most other procedurals, and certainly is the sort of gripping, bizarre brainteaser I count on this show to deliver (and which I find lacking in the two spin-offs). I was intrigued by the Keppler story line and found it a reasonably effective way to sustain interest during the period when the show's star was taking a much-publicized (and no doubt well deserved) sabbatical. I'm a big fan of Schreiber. Anyone in the New York area this spring is advised to check him out on Broadway in Talk Radio, where his electrifying portrayal is 180 degrees different from his tightly wound work as the haunted Keppler. Killing him off seemed a bit abrupt and tidy, but otherwise, it was an interesting departure in what has been a relativel ... read more

February 8, 2007: The Return of Grissom

It's time for everyone to disagree with me again. When my opinion about an episode sways drastically one way or the other, it usually means everyone will think the exact opposite. So here's your chance. This was the best episode of the season! If there were still any lingering questions about Keppler possibly showing up in a few episodes with Gil, they are all gone now. Last week, what I thought was a clear assumption that Keppler killed this "Amy" girl wasn't true at all. And thinking he killed the guy he thought raped her also turned out to be false. So I guess Mike really was trying to put his past behind him and move on. He was a cop that killed an innocent man, but in the end he actually didn’t seem that dirty compared to his buddy Frank. Man, Frank was really just going to hand the gun over so they could finger his buddy for the murder? That's crazy. And now, Mike is gone. A tough break since we finally saw some real emotion when he slammed the pimp's head into the table.... read more

February 1, 2007: Meet Market

Miss me? Nah, didn't think so. You guys did such a great job with the recaps last week, I seriously thought about making myself busy again and just letting you write it up again. But I couldn't go another week without CSI. I kind of wish I did, though.Now, I told you last week that I would watch the episode over the weekend and then comment on it, and I didn't. So here's my comment. I watched the first 20 minutes, and then decided I'd much rather be playing Madden. Does that say enough? I couldn't rely on that option this week, though, so I toughed it out. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzHow's that for a recap of this week's episode? OK, I'm just kidding. I'll discuss it a little bit. I'm sure it will be split down the middle with people that liked it and those that didn't. But I have to admit, last week there were more comments about the episode being boring than I can remember in a long time. I can certainly picture many of those comments being cut and pasted into this week's commentary, too. The ... read more

I love your column, but I get ...

Question: I love your column, but I get the distinct impression that you don't like my favorite show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, because you very seldom write about it. Now I am perplexed. Where is Gary Dourdan? It seems to me that every episode that airs, he is on less and less. Why bring the new guy in to replace Grissom? Why not give more airtime to the regulars? Who can I ask this of, if not you? Answer: If I don't write much about CSI, it's a result of the fact that even the most popular of procedurals don't generate as much mail as more serialized dramas, cult shows, etc. I have always been a fan of the original CSI, and still am. As for Warrick: He's not going anywhere, but the reality is that he's part of an ensemble, and his fans are never going to be satisfied with his supporting status in many episodes. That said, I'm a bit puzzled as well, because when Grissom left, didn't he tell Warrick that he was the unsung hero of the CSI team or some such thing? You'd think that ... read more

Tonight's Preview: CSI vs. CSI?

Earlier this week, I heard someone in the office remark that Liev Schreiber, the temporary new guy on the CSI block, looks more like a skeevy killer than a crime-scene technician. Maybe so, but his inscrutable demeanor, his oddly fussy mannerisms (watch him at breakfast in tonight’s episode) and his unorthodox work practices make his character of Michael Keppler a fascinating new addition to the first and best show in the CSI franchise, as long as he lasts. (Won’t be for long, as William Petersen will return next month from his theatrical sabbatical.)Last week the empathetic, enigmatic Keppler seemed as much profiler as CSI, and in tonight’s episode, he continues to reveal psychological shadings unusual for this show-telling a colleague that he prefers to think like the killer rather than identify with the victim, which only clouds his judgment.Keppler’s judgment comes under scrutiny in this first-rate episode, co-written by series executive producer Carol Mendel... read more

In Praise of Dwight Schrute

Now there's a line I never imagined I'd find myself typing: "In Praise of Dwight Schrute." Before I explain further, can I just say: How awesome are Thursday nights this season?This week, I truly needed escapism (I have a number of friends who are directly affected by the Time Inc. cutbacks that were announced Thursday, a very sad development for a very battered business), so I opted to watch the ABC lineup in more or less real time, and was richly rewarded.First, Ugly Betty. Sheer delight. Couldn't be happier for its, and America Ferrera's, Golden Globe wins. In especially fine form this week: Becki Newton as Amanda, who's a scintillating hoot even when she's manipulated into planning treachery against Daniel or calling our Betty a "stumpy troll." I also love how Betty is introducing Daniel to the finer things in life, like slices (although that looked like a full pizza) at the corner parlor and, gulp, karaoke. Took the sour taste of this week's American Idol auditions right out of... read more

January 18, 2007: Gil Who?

No, no, no. I'm just kidding with the title of my blog. I wouldn't want to start a quarterback controversy here. Is the show better off without William Petersen? Is the fresh blood of Liev Schreiber a nice jolt of energy? Can no one ever match up with Gil Grissom? All very good questions, which I can let you decide. But let me share my thoughts. Hello, Mr. Mike Keppler. A nice dark, mysterious intro followed by him walking up to the body and touching it. Good start, buddy. And right there we begin a show filled with attitude, as Catherine chastises him for touching and explains how they do things in Vegas. Ain't no messing around in the Vegas crime lab. It wasn't just Cat, though. Almost everyone seemed a little on edge with the new guy in town. There was Sofia telling the Doc not to whistle as he cuts people open. Sara, jawing a bit with the slacker detective. Even Keppler was able to get in on it when Catherine asked him how he knew all the deaths were related, and he firmly said,... read more
