Cheers: Desperate's Latest Twists

Cheers to Desperate Housewives for hitting a high note with its first post-twister (and last pre-strike!) episode. From the welcome return of M*A*S*H veteran Mike Farrell as Victor's cold-blooded father (who knew B.J. could be such an SOB?) to the Frasier-level farces involving Bree's gay roofer and Ida's ashes, it was a delight. Yet it had moments of genuine pathos as well, like when Lynette saw her family emerge from the rubble (though I wouldn't have minded if bratty Kayla hadn't made it). And how about Carlos going blind? I just hope it lasts longer than SVU's "Blinded" debacle — and the strike doesn't last much longer for Desperate fans.• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on Celebrity Apprentice, the "new" Law & Order and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

May 20, 2007: Getting Married Today

Well, they said the final scene would be a shocker, and they were right. I am speechless. You know how much I love my Edie. Would it be too much to ask to have Carlos heroically and miraculously walk in during the very first scene this fall and save her? I do not want this show to go on without Nicollette Sheridan. Yes, Edie is not one of the four main housewives, but the show would not be the same without her. Soap operas have had people hang themselves and be saved at the last minute. Until I get a confirmation, I'm going to spend this entire summer believing Edie is not dead. Just call me DID — "Dave In Denial."Except for that ending, I was very happy with this season's finale episode. I thought it had the perfect Desperate Housewives blend of drama and comedy. I expected to be satisfied after seeing that departing coexecutive producer Joe Keenan was one of the writers (along with talented fellow coexec producer Kevin Murphy). Besides having the same job title for all those ... read more

Malcolm Cast Preps for Middle's End

Friday, Jan. 13, turned out to be a truly bad-luck day for Malcolm in the Middle. That's when the cast members learned that the Fox sitcom, now in its seventh season, had gotten the ax. "There was some sadness," Bryan Cranston, aka Malcolm's bumbling dad, Hal, tells TVGuide.com, adding that he and his TV wife, Jane Kaczmarek, shared an embrace and a few tears upon learning their fate. "We realized it's about how much fun you have along the way," philosophizes the actor, who felt that Malcolm could have easily gone on creatively for another year. "But I can't complain. We'll have done 151 episodes. It's been fantastic. It's going to be good read more
