Cheers & Jeers: The Bachelorette — Kasey Strikes Out!

The Bachelorette

Cheers to The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky for cutting screwy Kasey loose.

It may have been hard to tell what the mush-mouthed ad exec was saying — even with the subtitles during his love poem! — but there was no mistaking the fact that he's bughouse loony. In a frightening attempt to prove he was there to "guard and protect her heart" (an oft-repeated phrase that no doubt launched a thousand drinking games), Kasey got a tattoo of a heart with a shield and 11 studs, representing the 11 studs who were chasing after her. (Ew.)... read more

But while she and her suitors enjoy the sights, the real question remains: Will Ali enjoy the sight of Kasey's new "love shield" tattoo when she goes on her first two-on-date with Kasey and Justin?

Cheers & Jeers: Scoundrels' Sweet David James

Scoundrels

Jeers to Scoundrels for not living up to its title.

ABC's summer crime dramedy (at least I think it's trying to be funny) suffered a huge loss when Neal McDonough was reportedly sacked after three days of production because the devout Catholic refused to shoot sex scenes with costar Virginia Madsen. McDonough brings a riveting malevolence to every role he plays, from sleazy DA David McNorris on Boomtown to psycho killer Dave Williams on Desperate Housewives. He surely would've lived up to the name of Palm Springs crime family patriarch Wolfgang "Wolf" West.

Here's the real crime: McDonough was replaced by David James Elliott, a likably generic TV hunk best known for his role as straight-arrow military man Harmon "Harm" Rabb on JAG. But on Scoundrels, Elliott seems... read more

Who is being replaced on Desperate Housewives? Going into its seventh season, the ABC series is looking for a new Penny, the daughter of Tom and Lynette Scavo.

Ask Matt: True Blood Boiling Over? And More!

Question
: Welcome back! This question is a two-parter. I'm in love with True Blood. It's so often described as lurid, melodramatic, overripe, etc. But the glory of the show is that it's all of those things while also containing moments of startling humor or tenderness, where we actually find ourselves caring about the characters, be they supernatural or just plain natural. That tension is what makes.... read more

Scoundrels' Virginia Madsen: It's Fun to Root for the Bad Guy

Virginia Madsen, Scoundrels

Take it from Virginia Madsen: Sometimes being bad can feel oh-so-good.

"Sometimes it's really fun to root for the bad guy," Madsen tells TVGuide.com of her new ABC dramedy, Scoundrels (premiering Sunday at 9/8c).

Madsen plays Cheryl West, the matriarch of a family of criminals. When her husband Wolf (David James Elliott) is sent to prison, Cheryl decides she and her four children — ditzy aspiring model Heather (Levin Rambin), young and smart Hope (Vanessa Marano), and twin boys (both played by Patrick Fleuger), one of which is a dim slacker while the other's a sharp lawyer — are going to go straight. Of course, things don't exactly work out that way... read more
