Exclusive: Cast Shake-up at The Bold and the Beautiful

Adam Gregory

Don't assume that Daytime Emmy on your mantle means job security! Drew Tyler Bell won the Outstanding Younger Actor trophy just this past June for his role as Thomas Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful but he's now been replaced on the CBS soap by former... read more

Watercooler: Bachelor Pad Smells Like Teen Spirit

Tenley Molzhan

Oh my god, did you hear what Tenley said about Elizabeth? She like, totally, called her out for doing "it" with Kovacs in the shower. I know, right?!

Wow, what a crowd of overgrown high schoolers. Using language like "the outsiders," "the cool kids" and the ever popular "clique," the remaining Bachelor Pad dwellers devolved into vicious, unruly teens last night as they jockeyed for social supremacy within the house. It was like that Wild Kingdom scene in Mean Girls, only with giant fake breasts, oddly hairless, overworked torsos and Chris Harrison as the befuddled principal.... read more

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman Team Up for The Switch

The Switch

Pretending to be friends on film was easy for Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, who take their more than decade-long friendship to the big screen in the new comedy The Switch, opening August 20.

"It's the kind of chemistry you can only hope for," says director Josh Gordon. "These two have known each other since their 20's, they've partied with each other, so it was great. They showed up on set with more back-story than we ever could have given these characters... read more

Elizabeth Hubbard Looks Back at Her Wild Ride on As the World Turns

Elizabeth Hubbard

It's bad enough we have to say goodbye to As the World Turns next month, but the thought of not having Elizabeth Hubbard on TV is just too much to bear! A member of daytime royalty and a two-time Emmy winner, Hubbard plays Oakdale megamogul Lucinda Walsh with a fresh, freewheeling inventiveness that always makes her scenes unpredictable and a little bit dangerous. Hubbard demands that we watch her every move with rapt attention — even after 26 years in the part — and that means she doesn't always obey the producers and stick to the script. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the ballsy, irrepressible Hubbard about all things ATWT — the cancellation, her upcoming reunion with Larry Bryggman (Dr. John Dixon) and what it's like to drive her bosses batty... read more

Roush Review: Few Laughs in Melissa & Joey, Big Lake and Kids' Death

Kids in the Hall

Memo to the gods of summer TV: Enough already! These are the dog days of August, I understand that all too well (as I wring out my socks after every muggy walk home from work), but the last thing we need in this summer of original-programming bounty is a pack of actual barking dogs pretending to be comedies.

Two make their bow Tuesday night, with back-to-back episodes challenging you to make it to that second half-hour.

First up: ABC Family's retro snooze Melissa & Joey, or: The Manny. Not Manny as in the wonderfully precocious Manny (Rico Rodriguez) of Modern Family, but male nanny, Who's The Boss? style.

Joey Lawrence fills that role, as "Joe," a down-on-his-luck commodities broker who lost his fortune and family in a financial meltdown. Let me be the first to say: "Whoa." He moves in, platonically, to work ... read more

Will Big Lake Sink or Swim?

Big Lake

Turns out you can go home again—you just might not be welcome there. In the new scripted comedy Big Lake (premiering tonight at 10/9c on Comedy Central), Chris Gethard stars as Josh Franklin, a failed financial whiz kid who flees the big city for his Pennsylvania hometown. But Josh's folks aren't exactly thrilled to see him—especially since he lost their nest egg on failed investments.

"His parents outwardly hate him at this point—they take their aggression out on him, and deservedly so," says Gethard, an accomplished improv comic who landed the role after impressing exec producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay on the set of Ferrell's new comedy The Other Guys... read more

Melissa & Joey: Take Two

Melissa and Joey

Following their success with last year's TV-movie My Fake Fiancé, former teen stars Joey Lawrence (Blossom) and Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains It All; Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) are reteaming for a new sitcom, Melissa & Joey (premiering tonight at 8/7c on ABC Family). The premise? When local politician Mel Burke suddenly finds herself responsible for her teenage niece and nephew, help arrives in the unlikely form of Joe Longo, a former Wall Street trader who moves in as the family's "manny." Can you say, "Whoa?!"? ... read more

Cheers & Jeers: The Big C's Oliver Twist

Oliver Platt

Cheers to Oliver Platt for continuing to defy typecasting on The Big C.

The enormously versatile character actor reunites with Kinsey costar Laura Linney (and director Bill Condon) on Showtime's new cancer comedy as her immature estranged husband. And while you wouldn't necessarily picture the pudgy Platt and the still-smokin' Linney together, his impish charm helps him pull it off... read more
