The Amazing Race Welcomes Returning Favorites

Amazing Race

If at first you don't succeed, race, race again.

Roush Review: Being Human and More Weekend TV

Being Human

A few nights ago, when Modern Family's Cameron-as-Fizbo tried on a court jester's shtick for size, Mitchell offered this dour rejoinder: "There goes the theory that an English accent makes everyone sound smart." I don't think it's Anglophile snobbery that has me celebrating the return of Being Human to BBC America's lineup Saturday night, while being left as cold as a cadaver by Syfy's spotty remake. The original is simply a much better show.

Better acted, for sure, and it's not just a matter of dialect. There's an intensity to the British original, even when it's going for droll humor, that's lacking in the shrill and... read more

For those not in the loop, a little background: After being elected Partridge, Minnesota's mayor at the tender age of... read more

Big Bang Theory's Mama Speaks Out!

How-ard!! With two short but knife-sharp syllables and a whole lot of nosy questions, Wolowitz's overbearing mother on The Big Bang Theory is quickly establishing herself as one of television's great unseen characters. Think Charlie from Charlie's Angels or Rhoda's Carlton the Doorman, but with a Noo Yawk accent and louder. Much louder. We dialed up the actress responsible for the hilarious holler, Carol Ann Susi, whose on-camera credits include Seinfeld's famous episode with Keith Hernandez, "The Boyfriend." And, yes, she really sounds like that in real life.
