The iconic grey suit and red bowtie have returned: Pee-wee Herman is back and heading to HBO for a special filmed presentation of his Broadway show, The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway.
The 90-minute comedy show is not unlike an extended version of his Emmy-winning Pee-wee's Playhouse series, which ran for four years on CBS. Pee-wee ran in Los Angeles a year ago and is currently playing in New York's Stephen Sondheim Theatre, where it has been met with favorable reviews.
"It's cyclical," Reubens said at Friday's Television Critics Association's winter preview sessions. Reubens appeared via satellite from New York in full Pee-wee attire. "If you wait long enough...

Yum-O! For her October 29 Halloween episode, foodie and Halloween fiend Rachael Ray is serving up an episode packed with 3-D effects and suitably outré appearances by Pee-wee Herman and magicians Penn & Teller. Good thing the two-time Emmy winner is as fearless as she is fabulous.
TV Guide Magazine: Where did you come up with the idea to do a 3-D episode?
Ray: We went to this conference, and the men who created the Real-D technology were there. They showed us scenes from The Departed and [had] a showing of Kung Fu Panda in Real-D that was amazing. So I called ...

Chuck gives Oscar (Paul Reubens) a piece of her hair so he can find out the truth about her smell. Emerson tells Ned he has a daughter but later blames carbon monoxide poisoning as the culprit for his sharing mood (but we know the potato was inserted in the tailpipe after he shared that information). High as a kite from a mood enhancer, Lily tells Olive Chucks her daughter. Oh my! All sorts of secrets came out of hiding tonight.On the run from Ned after he told her hes responsible for the death of her father, Chuck goes to the only other place she knows shes welcome: Olives. And because its the last place he thinks to look, Ned scours the city before knocking on Olives door. But now that she and Chuck are friends, Olives not about to give her up. I was happy Chuck got to tell someone the real story of how she died and was resurrected by Ned, even if Olive ending up not believing her. I may have mentioned it before but Ill mention it ag...
Tonight we finally learned why Ned decided to become a pie maker and how he became so set in his ways. The smell of pies reminded 9 year-old Ned of his mother and feeling safe, loved, and warm. He knows he cant eat the pies but he derives pleasure from making them nonetheless. Years later when Chuck buys cupcake pans and suggests offering cup-pies on the menu, we get a glimpse of how averse Ned is to change. Can you really blame him? I cant even imagine the trauma of having a bearskin rug come alive beneath me.I really enjoyed Chuck enlisting Olive in her scheme to get the Darling Mermaid Darlings (DMD) back in the water. Hard nut Lily really likes torturing Olive and I like seeing just how far her invective will go. Olive does her best to put Phase 2 in motion but Lily passes her fleeting smile off as gas. Our mystery death of the week involves apprentice Anita Gray. She works for olfactory genius Napoleon LeNez (Chistopher Sieber), who is publishing a book on smell. Wh...

The past few weeks have been trying ones for anyone who cares about TV and the potentially devastating impact the ongoing writers strike could have on the current season and beyond. Which is why, being a cockeyed optimist and all, Ive been cautiously thanking the fates ever since hearing that the Writers Guild and the producers alliance are going back to the negotiating table on Monday. No guarantee, of course, that this will mean a quick end to the standoff that has shut so much production down already. But hey, its Thanksgiving week, so lets stay in a thankful and hopeful mode, OK?In that light, here are 10 more reasons to be thankful about the current week in TV as we head into the Thanksgiving break.1. Were still in a sweeps month, which has allowed us most nights to live blissfully in denial that a strike is even happening, since new episodes continue to abound (including over most of this long holiday weekend). Depending on what happen...
Question: I saw an advanced screener of Pushing Daisies, and you were right: The show is amazing! Any scoop on how the rest of the season will play out?
Answer: You may've heard that producers were hoping to borrow Masi Oka for a guest stint, but NBC put the kibosh on it at the 11th hour. The show won't be hurting for guest stars, though, since sources tell me exclusively that Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens, has inked a deal to play the potentially recurring role of Alfredo Aldarisio, a traveling homeopathic antidepressant representative/salesman. All together now: mekka lekka hi, mekka hiney hooray!
