Keck's Exclusives: Hard Times for Two and a Half Men

Jon Cryer

As if being stuck acting opposite a naked Ashton Kutcher weren't tough enough, Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer tells me his character, Alan, will "take Viagra for a romantic encounter that does not occur, and thus [is] stuck in an inflamed state."

No help needed from the... read more

Keck's Exclusives: First Look at Big Bang Theory's Star Trek Reunion

The Big Bang Theory

When The Big Bang Theory beams back Sheldon's archnemesis, Wil Wheaton, on the October 13 episode, the Star Trek: The Next Generation alum will be joined by Brent Spiner, aka Commander Data. While Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has despised Wil ever since he failed to show at a sci-fi convention, exec producer Bill Prady believes that "of all the Star Trek characters Sheldon would love the most, we thought Data, the android [who has] trouble fitting in and wants emotions, is... read more

As Seen and Heard on TV: Matt's Week in Review

Amy Poehler and Adam Scott

Hey, network TV, turns out we kind of missed you over the long, reality-clogged summer. You showed back up, so we did, too. Some bleary-eyed musing to follow.

Starting with the Shocker of the Week, by which I mean the solid but hardly spectacular early numbers for Fox's mega-hyped The X Factor, opening to about half the business American Idol typically commands. I consider this a punishment for Simon Cowell's ghastly America's Got Talent, which this year rewarded yet another soon-to-be-forgotten singer. Blech. To be fair, by any other standards, X is an instant success, and puts Fox into a competitive position on two historically tough nights. But no matter Fox's spin... read more

Keck's Exclusives: How Victor Garber Became Charlie's Angels' Charlie

Victor Garber

Just three days before its September 22 premiere, ABC's new Charlie's Angels finally settled on an actor to replace Robert Wagner as the voice of detective agency owner Charles Townsend — former Alias star Victor Garber. "They were in a panic. I think my agent was negotiating with someone in the Emmys audience," says Garber, who has the same gentlemanly grace as the late John Forsythe, Charlie on the original series and in two feature films. "This is an out-of-the-blue, out-of-body experience. I'm just happy they settled on me."

Matt's Guide to Weekend TV: New and Returning Shows

Joshua Jackson

This busy premiere week is far from over. Here's a night-by-night look at how the weekend is shaping up this fall, with some thoughts on the new-season pilots, several key season premieres, and other highlights.

FRIDAY

The Night in a Nutshell: If you're not a CBS loyalist on this low-viewership night, then it's best to have a healthy appetite for cult TV. CBS is expected to rule as usual, with the new A Gifted Man grafting the popular voices-from-beyond genre of Ghost Whisperer and Medium with a medical procedural, leading in to CSI: NY (which barely got renewed this year) and Blue Bloods. Once again, Fox's mind-blowing Fringe and the CW's undying Supernatural duke it out for out-there enthusiasts, with the underrated spy thriller Nikita taking over Smallville's old time period. NBC enters the game in mid-October, launching the final 13 episodes of Chuck alongside the third supernatural offering in the 9/8c time period: the fairy-tale/mystery hybrid Grimm. Reality fans will soon be able to choose among ABC's transplanted Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Shark Tank and Fox's Kitchen Nightmares.

Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson

The biggest surprise of Monday night's big Two and a Half Men season premiere may have been the unexpected appearance of Dharma & Greg stars Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson.

While much of the episode's secrets had already leaked — from the death of Charlie Harper to the funeral appearance of his old girlfriends — the show managed to keep the cameos by Elfman and Gibson a complete secret.
