The Real Housewives of Washington D.C.: Power Players? Get Real!

Catherine Ommanney, Stacie Turner, Mary Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Michaele Salahi

The following is a special guest review by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd

The fantasy cast of The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. would feature Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and the fearsome Cheney sisters. Not only do these women wield real influence in the capital, they're also the ones you'd want on your side if you ever found yourself in a knife fight in a Hong Kong alley.

But on Bravo, connections are less important than claws. So instead, interspersed with shots of the Washington monuments, we get five women on the periphery of the periphery of power, so far outside the marbled inner sanctum that it required ... read more

Adrienne Barbeau Gets Ready to Soap Up on General Hospital

Adrienne Barbeau

Yo, Adrienne! She's famous for playing kickass broads — from Broadway's original Rizzo in Grease to divorcee Carol Traynor in the landmark sitcom Maude to the snake charmer Ruthie in HBO's Carnivale — and now Adrienne Barbeau is doing it again on General Hospital.

Suzanne's goodwill ambassador is international mega-model Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo)! Barbeau is a pro at conquering new genres and winning new fan bases. After Maude, she turned horror-flick scream queen (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing). Later, she became ... read more

Critic's Notebook: ABC at TCA

Michael Chiklis

Wait and see. That's a fairly typical approach to the fall TV season this time of year, as pilots are being tweaked and strategies put in place to launch a new crop of shows.

But for ABC, rocked in the last few days by the abrupt resignation of its entertainment president Steve McPherson, a wait-and-see attitude permeated the network's entire Sunday presentation on the TCA circuit.

Question: I was wondering what you think about this season of Rescue Me so far. I thought last week's episode was one of the best they have done in a while. I like that the show refuses to compromise or tack on happy endings. Just when it looks like Tommy will finally make an effort to be a good father or husband, something happens and ... read more
