Question: I'm enjoying The Blacklist thus far and would watch it for James Spader's performance alone, but I'm also enjoying the stories as well. NBC is sticking to a formula that has worked before, albeit on a sister network. The intriguing loner, at odds with a government agency, solving the case of the week with the help of his associates, with a through story that's addressed for a few minutes at the start and end of each episode, just enough to keep the serial nature of the story going. Am I the only one who thinks that The Blacklist is Burn Notice with a network budget? If the show is successful, NBC will end up as an expensive version of USA Network. Not there's anything wrong with that. — Rick
Mae Whitman, Matt Lauria
Parenthood's Matt Lauria admits that he had a hunch early on that Mae Whitman was his (TV) soulmate.
"Mae and I both, within the first couple of episodes, thought that we had really landed on something special," Lauria tells TVGuide.com. "So we both put our whole hearts into it."
Thankfully, this was no instance of puppy love. In the final moments of last Thursday's season premiere of the heartwarming family drama, Ryan returned home from military duty and...
What a difference a year makes. Last September, Parenthood faced a shortened 15-episode season after three years of high critical praise but lukewarm ratings. But thanks in no small part to Kristina's heartbreaking battle with breast cancer, the tearjerker family drama transformed from bubble show to buzz show. Now the NBC series returns for a full 22-episode season on a brand new night, Thursdays at 10/9c.
"Moving us to Thursdays was a vote of confidence from...
Parenthood has booked Friday Night Lights alum Jurnee Smollett for a recurring role, TVLine reports.
Smollett will play a smart and feisty woman named Heather whom Kristina (Monica Potter) hires as her campaign manager when she decides to run for office. The arc will reunite Smollett with her FNL producer Jason Katims, as well as Matt Lauria with whom she worked on the show's final two seasons.
Last year was a tough season for Parenthood, on-screen and off-screen. The show kept viewers reaching for the tissues when Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter) battled breast cancer, while her niece Amber (Mae Whitman) struggled with her feelings for a former soldier suffering from PTSD. Behind the camera, the perennial bubble show had been renewed for 15 episodes — shorter than the usual 22 — and ended its season way back in January. However, seven months later, the show has been renewed for a full 22-episode season and has been moved to...
Josh Stamberg is moving into Parenthood, TheWrap reports.
