Keck's Exclusives: NBC's Chase Casts Annie's Dad

William Sadler

An upcoming two episode arc of NBC's Chase will introduce viewers to the fugitive father of lead character, Deputy U.S. Marshal Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish). It was the search for her father that originally kicked off Annie's lifelong "chase."

Cast in the role of William Frost is character actor William Sadler, who was seen earlier this season in the premiere episode of CBS's Hawaii Five-0 as the father of Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin). That character didn't fare so well, and Annie's dad could also wind up dead if she doesn't act fast... read more

Walt Willey Weighs in on All My Children's New Love Triangle

All My Children

All My Children has spent months percolating a romance between Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her crusty mountain man Caleb (Michael Nouri) and so far her fiancé Jack — played by the marvelous Walt Willey — has remained pretty clueless. But he's about to wake up and smell the triangle. This week, David (Vincent Irizarry) comes out of his coma and remembers it was Kendall (Alicia Minshew) who shot him, and that finds an emotionally frazzled Erica leaning on Caleb, rather than Jack. On February 1, Jack catches the two of them in an embrace. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with Willey who — just like a whole lotta Jack and Erica fans — ain't too wild about this turn of events... read more

Football's Ratings Blitz

Sunday Night Football

Back in February 1983, when watching TV meant tuning in to ABC, CBS or NBC, 106 million people watched the final episode of M*A*S*H. Legend has it that the water pressure in New York City showed a noticeable drop during the commercial breaks. For 27 years, the M*A*S*H finale stood as the most watched TV show ever, and in an era when the average home has more than 100 channels to choose from, it seemed impossible that any single broadcast could amass that type of audience again.

But Super Bowl XLIV capped what had been a storybook season for the New
Orleans Saints, playing for a city that only a few years before gave viewers the horrific images of Hurricane Katrina... read more

Watercooler: Only Skins Deep?

Skins

Unless you've been living under a rock where pop-up ads, Twitter feeds and word of mouth are forbidden, you know that MTV revealed its Skins last night. And while less frisky than the source material — the scorchingly brazen British series about drug-addled, sex-obsessed teens — the U.S. version wants to shock as much as the kids want to boff.

Does it succeed? Well, like the characters in search of hooking up, sort of. Following the template.... read more

Question:
What on earth were the writers thinking when they wrote the January 11 episode of The Good Wife? All the lawyers and investigators acted in a disgusting and sleazy manner, and the gratuitous violence against women done by the male investigator was unforgivable. One more repugnant episode like this one and I won't be watching the show. — Ruth

Matt Roush: I'm betting your reaction is exactly what the show's writers were hoping to evoke (that week, the script was credited to show creators/executive producers Robert and Michelle King). Maybe not the "I'm quitting you" thing, but revulsion for sure. The entire purpose of the episode was to show our quasi-heroes in a negative light. These are not saints, not even Alicia. And I'm glad the show allows us to see that her moral quandaries don't stop with her husband but often extend to her work. Even good lawyers and good wives play dirty, and The Good Wife expects the viewer to be able to handle that. It's refreshing to see a mainstream network drama go a little dark once in a while. That's why they call it drama... read more
