Is There Too Much Cursing on TV?

2010 MTV Movie Awards

There sure is a hell of a lot of foul language on television these days.

You may have noticed some profanity if you sat through the MTV Movie Awards on June 6. Always a rollicking event where celebrities can cut loose in a way they wouldn't on a traditional trophy show, the telecast was laced with so many vulgarities that whoever was in control of the "bleep" button couldn't keep up... read more

The CW Sinks Its Teeth Into Moonlight

Alex O'Loughlin

Alex O'Loughlin fans got a bloody good summer treat when the CW acquired all 16 episodes of Moonlight, the Aussie actor's short-lived but beloved vampire detective show. "We get letters and e-mails about Moonlight all the time," says CW entertainment chief Dawn Ostroff. "And so we thought it would be interesting if we aired it following The Vampire Diaries."

Moonlight (Thursdays at 9/8c, The CW) follows the perpetually 30-year-old private investigator Mick St. John (O'Loughlin), his hedonistic buddy Josef (Jason Dohring) and Beth Turner (Sophia Myles), a young reporter whose chemistry with Mick threatens her relationship with her human fiancé. Around to cause trouble... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Jimmy Kimmel Shoots — and Scores!

Jimmy Kimmel and Ricardo Reyes

Cheers to Jimmy Kimmel for a comedic slam dunk.

ABC's late night funnyman has used his prime time Game Night specials to introduce an unlikely (but hugely likable) new sports superstar: Ricardo Reyes. The 5'7", 41-year-old busboy at Barney's Beanery in Hollywood is a master of the Pop-a-Shot mini-basketball game. So far he has defeated LeBron James, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom and Carmelo Anthony. And no one's even come close to Ricardo, who often doubles the NBA All-Stars' scores. For his latest triumph, Kimmel rewarded Reyes with a 2011 Ford Mustang. With that kind of a suave ride, Rico could fit right in with the New Jersey Nets.

Fatal Attraction Hits General Hospital

Jason Thompson and Brianna Brown

We can't say we didn't see this coming. But it's still a stunner. On July 2, General Hospital surgeons Lisa Niles (Brianna Brown) and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) will get drunk and hit the sack while his wife, Robin (Kimberly McCullough), is away in Africa working with AIDS patients. That's not the surprising part. Lisa and Patrick were lovers back in college so it was only a matter of time before the past reared its naughty head. This is what throws us for a loop:

"Lisa is going to get very obsessive with Patrick and we will go into a Fatal Attraction story," says the soap's Emmy-winning head writer Bob Guza... read more

Watercooler: Double Exposure's Singularly Annoying Markus

Double Exposure

Forget Arizona's immigration mess. We really need to increase security on our TV borders. Because this Eurotrash-hole Markus Plinko or Klinko or whatever needs to go the hell home.

High-pitched, high-maintenance and bitchier than a Real Housewives reunion, the screechy mess... read more

Summer TV Review: Top Chef D.C., Hot in Cleveland

Top Chef D.C.

Paradox of the week: Top Chef D.C. is something old (going into its seventh season) yet somehow feels new and fresh, while TV Land's original sitcom Hot in Cleveland is new but feels instantly old-hat — and we're not being ageist about the accomplished sitcom dames in the show's overqualified cast.

Both series premiere Wednesday night and are likely to be breakouts in this incredibly cluttered summer of non-stop cable. Chef is an established reality-competition hit and gets off to a confident and scenic start (with a multi-task Quickfire challenge on the Newseum rooftop), while Cleveland is old-fashioned comfort-food TV comedy that's essentially critic-proof. That's due to the canny casting of the beloved and on-a-roll Betty White as a cranky old... read more
