Kathy Bates on Former Show Harry's Law: NBC Treated Us Like Sh--

Kathy Bates

Kathy Bates says NBC treated her former show Harry's Law like sh--.

"I think they treated us like sh--," Bates told reporters on Friday at the Television Critics Assocation presentation for her FX show American Horror Story: Coven. "They kicked us to the curb. They disrespected us. They disrespected our 11 million viewers every week. And I think they're getting what they deserve."

Despite being canceled after two seasons, Harry's Law earned four Emmy nominations, including two for Bates and one win for guest star Paul McCrane.

Amnesia, Moles and Cougars — Oh My! 24's Most Ridiculous Storylines

Elisha Cuthbert

24's Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and less-than-plausible story lines have always had an uneasy alliance. Every really bad day of Bauer's packs so many plot devices into 24 hours it's hard to always keep things fresh. Here are a few of the most ridiculous plotlines the writers of the Fox series conjured up over eight seasons:

ER Vet McCrane on Directing Miami Medical: I Avoided the Helicopters

Hot Topic: Meet the Bauers

Nothing brings a family together like a bunch of purloined suitcase nukes. Or so we gather from 24 this season, which apparently has split the fan base over whether it was a good idea to reveal the Big Bad from this and last season to be Jack Bauer’s own brother: the sniveling Graem—played by one of TV’s most reliable go-to villains, former ER irritant Paul McCrane. (Think maybe Jack can arrange for a helicopter to fall on this creep as well?)As usual, I’m willing to go along for the ride, trusting it won’t take us into Kim Bauer-meets-the-cougar territory. This storyline is just the latest of many risks taken by this show, which has ruthlessly killed off favorite characters (starting with the death of Jack’s wife Teri at the end of the first season) and brought Jack back from the dead, both literally and figuratively, prompting allegations of shark-jumping almost from the start. To which I say, and always have said: Phooey!I loved the way they revealed... read more

Exclusive Casting Scoop on 24, Boston Legal!

Infamous show-killer Rena Sofer (Blind Justice, Coupling) is joining 24 for a mult-episode arc, a well-placed source confirms. The General Hospital Emmy winner will play the wealthy, Bel Air wife of returning evildoer Graham, played by Paul McCrane. (And I was only half-joking about the show-killer thing. Me like Sofer.) Also, ex-Surface star Lake Bell will reprise her Boston Legal role of Sally Heep for two episodes this November. Now in totally unrelated news, our friends up North weren't the only ones who had the privilege of watching the second episode of Grey's Anatomy a whole week ahead of time. (Hint: I'm talking about me!) And as much as I loved last night's premiere, Episode 2 is so much better. You guys are gonna flip! read more
