Watercooler: What Did You Think of Pan Am's Virgin Flight?

Christina Ricci

Ladies and gentleman, we have liftoff!

Pan Am hit the air last night and to say we're high on ABC's stylish airborne soap is an understatement. Nothing like Mad Men (to which it's been unjustly compared) aside from being set in the '60s and having fabulous costumes, the drama here is juicier and faster-paced than that of Don Draper and company. It's also super fun.

And while it may take a few weeks to differentiate some ...

Exclusive: The Bold and The Beautiful's Bradley Bell Dishes on Jacob Young, Usher and More

Bradley Bell

Bradley Bell's no fool. The exec producer of The Bold and the Beautiful has Emmy winner Jacob Young — fresh from his scorching performance as badass boozer JR Chandler on All My Children — back in the role of Rick Forrester starting today. Young played the fashion-industry scion during the character's troubled teen years from 1997 to '99.

"Those were great times with Jacob and he's an even more exciting, intense and unpredictable actor now," says Bell, who nonetheless insists he's not bringing Young in to "take over and steal the show. We will slowly immerse Rick back into the Forrester ...

Terra Nova: Dinosaurs Rule in Fox's Ambitious New Sci-Fi Saga

Jason O'Mara, Stephen Lang

After what seems like 85 million years of anticipation, Fox's dinosaur adventure Terra Nova finally premieres tonight. To mark the occasion, Fox has given TV Guide Magazine this exclusive piece of promotional art. The shot mixes a live-action photo of series stars Jason O'Mara and Stephen Lang (taken on location in the Australian forest) with a computer-generated image of a rampaging carnosaur — one of the first dinosaurs to be seen tonight.

The special effects team knows that its dinosaurs could make or break the show. "Once audiences see the best [of CGI], they ...

Ask Matt: The New Season, Plus Fringe, Mentalist, Prime Suspect and More!

Question: Last year the TV season came and went without a breakout hit, and with more cancellations than usual. I'm interested in the strategy that the networks seem to be going for this year to make up for the extremely lackluster last season, especially over at Fox. I don't know exactly what Fox's expectations for The X Factor were, but I'm guessing that they're somewhat disappointed today. 12.5 million seems a bit of an underperformance, especially given that Two and a Half Men had double that many viewers. I was really surprised that New Girl (which I found absolutely delightful) not only matched Glee's numbers, but in fact did significantly better. Given that New Girl had been available online for several weeks prior, I'm surprised that so many people tuned in. This is perhaps a bit reminiscent of Fox's bold move in previewing the pilot of Glee in the spring after Idol, which paid off ...

Matt's Guide to Monday TV: The New Season

Rachel Bilson

As opening nights go, last Monday's kickoff to the fall season was pretty spectacular. Now with the two Charlies laid to rest (and Sheen charred at the celebrity roast), we'll see how Two and a Half Men holds up, along with the rest of CBS' comedy lineup. Add some high-profile dinosaurs to the mix this week, and it should be another fascinating night.

First, the new shows ...

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
