October 25, 2006: I'd Like a Table Next to These!

This was the second of the three episodes to start off with some slight show of athleticism. The pilot had the guys playing racquetball and in this one basketball. For the amount of sports they seem to play, you'd think Jeffrey would be a little better skilled or maybe a little less injury-prone. What was he doing when he busted up his elbow? Simply holding his arms in the air? I hope old age isn't quite as sad sack as Jeffrey makes it out to be. I guess I also hope that I don't think I'm cool when I'm really just stuck up like John. Of course, combine those and that's my life now, so maybe I can at least hope for a sitcom down the road. Hey, speaking of sitcoms, this one was quite funny, yet again. OK, so it's predictable and lame in some parts and has virtually no chance of making it (I guess if Fox was able to air multiple episodes of War at Home while the World Series was in a rain delay, then any show has a shot), but there's still enough laughs to keep me interested. In this e... read more

Parents' Guide: What's New for Preschool?

PBS' Curious George

Over the last few weeks, TV Guide correspondent Robert Edelstein previewed a spate of new programs for preschool audiences. After he was done (and ate a box of animal crackers, washed down by a juice box... ), he debriefed TV Guide's family editor, Michael Davis. Michael Davis: What was the best new series of the bunch? Robert Edelstein: I completely loved Curious George (PBS, premiering Sept. 4). To me, it hit the ever-elusive triple: It's spirited-enough fun for kids, it's got sophistication — within its presentation — to be way more than tolerable for adults, and it has enough warm and fuzzy references to the Curious George we remember. But the secret of its success is found in three words: William H. Macy, the voice of the narrator. OK, I guess that's two words and one ini read more

WHO WANTS CHIPS?

Warner Bros. Pictures, having already delivered Starsky & Hutch and The Dukes of Hazzard to the big screen, will next bring moviegoers a feature version of that '70s show CHiPs — appropriately tapping That '70s Show's Wilmer Valderrama to fill Erik Estrada's distinctively snug motorcycle cop pants. Somewhere, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Mario Lopez are sobbing. read more

IMAGINE THIS CASTING

Lindsay Lohan will star in an independent film about the murder of John Lennon, Variety reports. Chapter 27 features Lohan as a Lennon fan who befriends Mark David Chapman (played by the actress' rumored new honey, Jared Leto) days before he kills the singer. The former Beatle himself has yet to be cast, but I'm going to go ahead and rule out Wilmer Valderrama. read more

Did you go to the TV Guide ...

Question: Did you go to the TV Guide party after the Emmys? Pick up any good scoop from intoxicated partygoers?Answer: Yes! My gig cohosting TVGuide.com's first-ever webcast (yes, that was the "huge event" I hinted at last week) turned me into a news-gathering fool. Check TVGuide.com later this week for my interviews with such special guests as Desperate Housewives' Mark Moses and Cody Kasch, That '70s Show's Wilmer Valderrama, Lost's Terry O'Quinn, Scrubs producer Randall Winston and Last Call's Carson Daly. Who's a little Mike Wallace-in-the-making? C'mon? Guess. Go ahead. No, not Carson Daly. Guess again. No, not Dan Manu. I'll give you one more guess. (Crickets) Oh, just forget it. The answer is me! I'm the little Mike Wallace-in-the making. read more

Ashton's Punk'd Secret Revealed!

When Punk'd prankster Ashton Kutcher made his That '70s Show cast mate, Wilmer Valderrama, think that his new hot rod had been totalled, we thought he was ruthless. But, it turns out, he was merely righteous! "The reason that happened," the Butterfly Effect leading man explains, "is because I got to work [at the Fox hitcom] one day, and these two clowns [Valderrama and Topher Grace] had stolen all my furniture out of my dressing room and hid it in the closets. "I called up security," he continues, "and had them come. We were going to call the cops [before the jig was up]. So [slaughtering what appeared to be Valderrama's car] was just payback." Despite the no-holds-barred trickery behind the scenes of That '70s Show, Kutcher insists that he isn't out to one-up his costars professionally. The idea that, as Demi Moore's high-profile steady and Hollywood's newest matinee idol, he has somehow moved beyond the sco read more
