Matt's TV Week in Review

The soundtrack for the last week in TV — and virtually every other medium — was provided by the late and lavishly lamented Whitney Houston. Her sudden, untimely death on the eve of the Grammys helped boost that annual spectacular to its highest ratings since the peak of the Thriller furor (a statistic reminding us of the equally resounding loss of Michael Jackson in 2009). LL Cool J, the Grammys' engaging host, opened the show with a prayer — when's the last time that happened? — as the proceedings took on the feel of a celebration and memorial, when they weren't busy crowning Adele the new Queen of Pop. (And how much fun was she on 60 Minutes?)

Network Pilot Watch: An Early Look at What's Trending for Fall

Remember last fall's The Playboy Club and Charlie's Angels? Both shows quickly fizzled — but their failure didn't sour the networks on period dramas or remakes. Both trends are hot again as pilot season gets underway this winter.

Exclusive: Shirley Jones Gets an ABC Family Reunion with Cassidy Kin

I think I love this: Shirley Jones will guest-star on ABC Family's Ruby & the Rockits, playing mother to David and Patrick Cassidy, her real-life stepson and son, has learned exclusively.

Shaun Cassidy, another of the actress' sons with the late actor Jack Cassidy, executive-produces the new comedy. He joked that Jones got the role the old-fashioned way.

"She slept with the producer," he tells "Although in her defense, I was two years old at the time and afraid of the dark."

Fox Casts Lead in New Shaun Cassidy Pilot

A British Invasion...? If only. U.K.-born Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) has landed the lead in Inseparable, a prospective pilot for Fox, says the Reporter. Pitched to the network before the strike by Shaun Cassidy (Invasion), the drama is pegged as "a modern-day Jekyll-and-Hyde tale" in which a partially paralyzed forensic shrink harbors a split personality — his other self being a charismatic criminal. Inseparable, it should be noted, has not yet been picked up by Fox as a pilot. But with this pre-season being so unusual, networks are in some cases locking up talent first . read more

Will Invasion be back this ...

Question: Will Invasion be back this fall? I love that show

Answer: Under normal circumstances, I'd say something really mean to you for asking such a ludicrous question. But since I have some Invasion poop to impart, I'm going to restrain myself and just be thankful someone asked an Invasion question at all this week. Now, while I was talking to Tyler Labine about Boston Legal, the Chatty Cathy shared with me a personal conversation he had with series creator Shaun Cassidy about what would have happened during Season 2 of Invasion. True, I wasn't exactly the most religious Invasion viewer, but I know big scoop when I hear it: "Shaun told me Larkin was going to [be presumed dead]. I was going to get all militant and shave my head, and Russell and I were going to join forces against Tom. Tom was read more

As a fellow Invasion fan, ...

Question: As a fellow Invasion fan, what did you think of the series finale? I thought it was pretty close to perfect —  it would have been perfect if we had a second season to look forward to. So much action, so many questions answered and so left unanswered. The possibility that Larkin would start the second season as a hybrid — along with the subtext I read into Russell and Mariel's relationship — promised more emotion along with the sci-fi for a second year. Now that CW has passed on picking up the series, do you think Shaun Cassidy and company might pull a Joss Whedon and release a feature movie to tie up the loose ends and continue the story? Answer: For my analysis of Invasion's first-rate finale, check out my Dispatch from the morning after. As to Invasion's future, it's an awfully long shot. The show would have to do well in the afterlife: in repeat viewings on Sci Fi or wherever, and in DVD sales for sure, which is what helped Joss Whedon make his dream of a movie version of read more
