Pioneers of Television

If I counted right, you can hear Betty White say "I'm the luckiest broad on two feet" at least three times during the course of the "Funny Ladies" retrospective that kicks off a new season of PBS' Pioneers of Television (check tvguide.com listings). Who could or would want to doubt her? The evidence is right there in clips and stills from this living legend's earliest TV appearances in the 1940s and '50s, establishing her as a versatile broadcaster and gung-ho performer even before Lucille Ball made us fall in love with her — and blazing a trail for all who would follow.

Wednesday TV in Review: Chelsea, Face Off, Middle, Harry and More

Face Off

Knock knock. Who's there? Chelsea. Chelsea who?

No, make that Chelsea why? The answer to the question posed in NBC's squalid new sitcom Are You There, Chelsea? (8:30/7:30c) is "not really." Based on late-night spitfire Chelsea Handler's potty-mouthed party-girl memoirs — but dropping the Vodka from the title because that might be, you know, offensive — this smutty but toothless misfire puzzlingly reduces Handler to a supporting role: that of a mousy, whiny born-again sister to the fictional Chelsea, played by That '70s Show's Laura Prepon with a one-note husky-voiced crassness that grows stale long before the first scene (in a women's jail cell) ends with Glee's Dot Marie Jones leering at Chelsea. Which is maybe the only sexual advance Chelsea spurns. As long as she can be on top. Which she mentions a lot.

As Passions star Galen Gering...

As Passions star Galen Gering forewarned TVGuide.com, Sheridan (McKenzie Westmore) did not initially recognize Luis when the heiress found her not-so-dead lover all beaten up in Hawaii. Next week, Sheridan unwraps Luis' bandages in the hospital and gets an eyeful of his handsome (albeit bruised) face at long last! "We definitely had a laugh. It's totally a soap-opera moment," Westmore says. "This reunion is big for the fans because Sheridan and Luis haven't seen each other in seven months."

Passions devotees who root for...

Galen Gering, Passions

Passions devotees who root for "Shuis" — the popular Sheridan-and-Luis pairing — are worried to see McKenzie Westmore romancing Adrian Wilson's Chris. Particularly since they've known all along that Luis, as played by Galen Gering, isn't really dead — he was merely written off temporarily due to a delay in the actor's contract negotiations last year. After a six-month absence, Luis will return to Passions on March 8 to find Sheridan married to Chris! Here's what Galen has to say about that and much more.

TVGuide: Is the contractual conflict that necessitated Luis' exit all cleared up?
Galen Gering:
There were some misunderstandings, but suffice it to say that everything's worked out great. It's good to have a little break and come back fresh. It'll be exciting for the story line and for those loyal fans, bless their hearts.
