Not since Charlie's Angels cast David Doyle as a bosom buddy of Farrah, Kate and Jaclyn has an actor been placed in as heavenly a situation as Oded Fehr, the ladies' man among the female docs on the new CBS drama Presidio Med.
"I'm outnumbered in a very good way," he tells TV Guide Online, referring to the show's 5-to-1 gals-to-guys ratio. "Working with all these women is just lovely. The set is so relaxed. There's a really great atmosphere."
It's certainly a drastic change from Fehr's last TV gig: NBC's short-lived, male-dr read more

"I feel like it's a good year," she tells TV Guide Online. "There's lots of different stories going on. Each character gets to have their time."
To Tony's chagrin, Janice will be secretly making time with Mafia captain Ralphie Cifaretto (Joe Pantoliano). What have these two psychos got in common? A mutual penchant for cocaine and very kinky sex. (We'll say no more.) In the past, Janice shot an abusive fiancé and dated a narcoleptic who kept falling asleep on her. With that lousy track record, it's a good thing she'll be seeing a shrink.

"I've been on shows that the critics loved that tanked and shows that sucked that [did well] so, who's right?," she muses. "I don't read more
