Is Bret Michaels Settling Down?

Bret Michaels

Just six months ago, Bret Michaels was recovering from a near-fatal brain hemorrhage, a health scare that could have cast an ironic pall over the title of his new VH1 reality series, Life as I Know It (premiering tonight at 10/9c). Thankfully, the rocker survived, emerging with a renewed commitment to his career and to ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Off the Map First Look

Off the Map

"Grey's in the jungle!" That's the nickname the actors on ABC's new medical drama Off the Map have given their series, which will likely premiere in early 2011. But the producers, including Shonda Rhimes (who also created Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice), prefer to think of their new bush baby as "Indiana Jones with scalpels." And after getting down and dirty with the sweaty cast in Hawaii earlier this month, I can see why.

The story finds ... read more

Matt's Picks: October 18-21

Raising Hope

How I Met Your Mother (Monday, 8/7c, CBS)
House's loss is Mother's gain, as Jennifer Morrison begins a recurring role as the new woman in Ted's life. Sparks fly when Ted encounters Zoey, an outspoken activist passionately committed to saving the landmark building that's slated to be torn down for the new GNB headquarters — Ted's architectural dream project. In other House news regarding a famous Jennifer, you're not seeing double, but ... read more

Keck's Exclusives: JAG's David James Elliott Returns to CBS on CSI: NY

David James Elliott

One of CBS' biggest stars is coming back to the network! David James Elliott, who starred as Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb, Jr. on JAG from 1995-2005, has been cast on CSI: NY. And it's an awesome role.

David will play Russ Josephson, the ex-husband of Sela Ward's new investigator, Jo Danville. (Expect Jo to crack a joke about being Jo Josephson.) David will debut in an early January episode he is now shooting, and producers tell me there's a possibility he could come back for more... read more

Matt's TV Week in Review

Danny Pudi, Joel McHale, Donald Glover

A very selective look at the shows and various other TV odds and ends that stood out for me this week:

STUNT OF THE WEEK: Live from New York, it was 30 Rock. (And the following comments apply only to the early version. Couldn't really imagine sitting through it again to see how and where they tweaked it.) Much as I wrote many years ago when ER pulled off a similar stunt, I hope they take a nice bow and promise never to do it again. There were some inspired moments, as there usually are on this show — and I couldn't get enough of Julia Louis-Dreyfus' surprise cameo as "Flashback-Liz" (as real-time Liz notes, "My memory has Seinfeld money"). But most of what worked had little to do with the thinly sliced meat of the actual episode.... read more

Double Exposure for Indira Varma

Indira Varma

She's got nothing but man trouble! Brit actress Indira Varma — best known as the doomed wife Niobe in Rome — stars in BBC America's twisted crime series Luther (premiering Sunday, 10/9c), where she plays Zoe Luther, a top-flight attorney who is emotionally terrorized by her detective husband (Idris Elba). Varma is also joining the cast of Fox's Human Target (returning 11/17) as filthy-rich philanthropist Ilsa Pucci, a gig that finds her playing boss to the show's three morally dubious security guys... read more

A Mad Dash to the Finish

John Slattery

"Who is Don Draper?" was the opening line of Mad Men this season. As it concludes, will dapper Don (Jon Hamm) be any closer to the answer? "Absolutely, conclusively," insists John Slattery, who plays fellow adman Roger Sterling. "Don came through his divorce, started the new business and survived his own personal cauldron. He ends the year transformed."

Beyond that... read more

Watercooler: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hellions

Taylor Armstrong, Kyle Richards

9021-oh yeah! There's some new Housewives in reality-TV town and these messes are not messing around. After five iterations of the look-at-us luxury franchise, Bravo finally rounded up some Real monied mamas instead of another batch of foreclosure-bound, "who the hell is that?" social climbers. We're talking sports and casino moguls. Former Disney kids. A woman who feeds her dog breakfast in bed, mmkay? Beverly Hills, you had us at Jiggy.
