Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel
Can Jimmy Fallon survive his Late Night competition? With Conan O'Brien departing for the Tonight Show, fans of O'Brien's occasional sharp edges might depart for Jimmy Kimmel Live — but those who tuned in for O'Brien's heart might find a better soul mate in Craig Ferguson of the Late Late Show.
Fallon brings youth and energy to the Late Night desk, but no one knows what else. Looking ahead to his debut Monday, check out the hosts' strengths, weaknesses, and occasional tendencies to overshare.
Anastasia Griffith, Carly Pope
We said, "Give this star a show," and they gave her one. Anastasia Griffith (aka Ellen's sis-in-law on Damages) has scored a gig on Trauma, NBC's drama pilot about first-response paramedics. Griffith will play ...
Sarah Silverman and her two executive producers are threatening to quit The Sarah Silverman Program after Comedy Central said it plans to slash the show's budget by 20 percent, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Although the series has yet to receive a third-season renewal, Silverman, along with Dan Sterling and Rob Schrab, informed network brass that they cannot continue the show at the reduced price because ...
Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience
So much for world domination.
Despite plenty of hype and a weekend theater-invasion tour, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience opened second to Madea Goes to Jail, earning $12.7 million. The soft opening was well below industry expectations, which had the trio earning about twice as much. Fellow teen idol Miley Cyrus' 3-D picture, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds, opened to $31.1 million last year.
Madea Goes to Jail locked in the top spot for the second consecutive week with $16.5 million, putting its 10-day tally at $64.9 million.
Nipping at the Jonas Brothers' heels was ...
McLean Stevenson (M*A*S*H), Terry O'Quinn (Lost), Leslie Hope (24)
We really should've known better. We waited two weeks for Brothers & Sisters' "shocking death," when all along we should have realized that what the network had been teasing for weeks (months even, among insiders) in the end wasn't all that shocking — especially when it didn't even really happen.
Oh well, maybe we're all patsies. But to make ourselves feel better, after the jump are the TV deaths that actually delivered a gutshot and had us talking about a character's demise the next day — for all the right reasons.
Melissa George, Cole Hauser
Abruptly exiting Grey's Anatomy didn't leave Melissa George out of work for long. The Aussie beauty has in short order joined the ensemble cast of CBS' as-yet-untitled legal drama about federal prosecutors based out of Manhattan.
George, says the Reporter, will play a Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney who ...
Relationships are never easy, especially for the guys and gals of Rules of Engagement. TVGuide.com caught up with Patrick Warburton — who plays married man Jeff — to get the scoop on what we can expect from the couples in the new season (premieres March 2 at 9:30 pm/ET on CBS), and what David Spade is like when the cameras are off.
TVGuide.com: What can we expect for this upcoming season?
Patrick Warburton: [Jeff] ends up with a new buddy who is gay, unbeknownst to him, so he has to kind of deal with that. He's played by Orlando Jones, who was fun to work with and a good guy. We also have a new character. His name is Timmy and he's the assistant to Russell. He's very refined and witty and sharp and classy and Spade is on the other end of that spectrum, so you put the two of them together and there's just a great humor and chemistry. So we've opened up the show a little bit.
TVGuide.com: What do you think of Jeff and Audrey's relationship as far as getting under each other's skin?
Warburton: Jeff and Audrey can say horrible things to each other, but it comes from a place where they love and respect each other. Jeff's not a total gripe either. He's also attracted to his wife and that's ...
Kim Raver, Alyssa Milano
Lipstick would seem to be running out. That is, Lipstick Jungle's chances of a pick-up by NBC.
On the heels of Lindsay Price being cast in the ABC pilot Eastwick, Kim Raver has landed a female lead in Inside the Box, the new drama being exec-produced by Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and set at a Washington network news bureau.
Raver will play Samantha ...
Paul Harvey, the distinctly voiced news commentator whose radio career spanned nearly 60 years, died on Saturday in Arizona, a spokesman for ABC Radio Networks tells the Associated Press. He was 90.
A cause of death was not immediately available. Harvey's passing comes less than a year after that of his wife and longtime producer, Lynne.
"My father and mother created from thin air what one day became radio and television news," Paul Harvey Jr. said in a statement. "So in the past year, an industry has lost its godparents and ... millions have lost a friend."
Known for his staccato voice and trademark delivery of "The Rest of the Story" (a feature through which he anecdotally recalled the lives of famous folk), Harvey's career ...
