Critic's Notebook: Tonys and Tragedy on Sunday Night

Neil Patrick Harris

And by tragedy, we're not taking sides (or expressing too much schadenfreude) over Miami's climactic loss to Dallas in the NBA finals — although I'm sure ABC is weeping over being denied a seventh game to milk some more ratings juice out of this match-up. Before we discuss what went down on Game of Thrones, a few thoughts on a sparkling night of Broadway entertainment courtesy of the Tony Awards.

Once again, host extraordinaire Neil Patrick Harris brought the house down — albeit the uptown Beacon, since the mammoth Radio City was otherwise engaged — taking as his inspiration this year's much honored musical ...

Mary McCormack Puts Her Pregnancy In Plain Sight

Mary McCormack

U.S. marshal Mary Shannon is going to be a mom? That's a scary thought. On this week's episode of In Plain Sight (Sunday, 10/9c, USA), while dealing with a naive Amish witness, the Witness Protection Program agent discovers a recent sexual encounter has left her pregnant. "Her reaction to the news is not good," Mary McCormack says of her grumpy workaholic character. "She never planned to be a mother, so her reaction is shock, denial, avoiding telling her mom and sister — and weighing all her options"...

In Plain Sight's McCormack: Mary "Has No Interest in Being Pregnant"

In Plain Sight

"What is it with babies? I don't get 'em!"

Tough-as-nails workaholic U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack) uttered those very words in the first season of In Plain Sight. Now, three years later, an unexpected pregnancy will force Mary to finally face the music and, maybe, understand motherhood during what might be her toughest assignment yet.

"Mary's not into the physical changes, she's not into the miracle of pregnancy. She has no interest in being pregnant or being a mother," McCormack tells TVGuide.com. "I don't know what... read more

Mary McCormack

Mary McCormack, who is five months pregnant with her third child, sits down with TV Guide Network's Hollywood 411 to reveal how USA's In Plain Sight plans to deal with her — and her character's — pregnancy.

"I think it's nice for women who watch the show to see what pregnancy actually looks like," she says. Unlike actresses who portray pregnant women, there will be no stunt boobs. "Tune in to see the real boobs!" she promises. Viewers will also find out in short order who fathered U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon's baby. Could it be her on-screen partner Marshall Mann?

Matt's Weekend Picks: April 29-May 1

Mary McCormack

The Cleveland Show (Sunday, 8:30/7:30c, Fox)
An ill wind is blowing through Fox's "Animation Domination" lineup — well, the Seth MacFarlane variety, anyway. In a crossover sweeps stunt, a hurricane storms its way through Stoolbend (Cleveland Show), Quahog (Family Guy) and Langley Falls (American Dad). On Cleveland, the storm wrecks the Brown/Tubbs family vacation plans. On Family Guy, the stress of the storm (never easy on dogs) drives Brian to overindulge in questionable substances. And on American Dad, the hurricane wreaks havoc on the Smiths, who foolishly decide to ride it out at home. As for Springfield... The Simpsons go to the Jersey Shore, so apparently they didn't get the memo.

For Mary McCormack, Stardom is In Plain Sight

Mary McCormack, In Plain Sight

It takes real cojones to call a powerful producer a fathead while auditioning for a TV series. That's just what Mary McCormack did to Steven Bochco when he was casting Murder One back in 1994. "Steven was making fun of my pretentious head shot, and I finally said to him, 'Shut up, you big fathead, I have to read now!'" The room went dead silent — until Bochco laughed. McCormack won a leading role, as well as a nickname — "Fatty" — and a lifelong friend. "Steven's my hero for starting off my career," McCormack says, "and for paying off my college loans." The actress has parlayed her gutsy, smart-mouthed persona into a successful career, with credits that include Howard Stern's Private Parts — her "favorite job ever" — The West Wing and ER. And she earned a Tony nomination for her uproarious turn as an overheated German stewardess with dominatrix read more

Never the Bride

Hey gang, today you're getting a special treat, two for one recaps! First up ("Never the Bride") is the episode that will go down as the one that was supposed to make Mary look "hot," but ended up making her look like a caricature of a Vegas stripper. I'm not quite sure if we're supposed to think she looks ridiculous... she's clearly out of her comfort zone in this Brandi-inspired getup, but suddenly every male in the episode loses the ability to speak once they sees Mary's magical boobs. Calling hair and makeup! Time for a do-over! She looked more like a hooker than someone who's had a "hot" makeover. She was more of a "hot mess." I'm sorry to go on about this, but it did bug me. On to the show! We start off in Hawaii, six months ago with a couple making out in a hammock. Missy Pyle (how awesome is she!) plays a newly married wife who begs her husband to stop his "deals" while on their honeymoon, and forever after. She says it's immoral and dangerous and she doesn't care about the ... read more
