Anna Paquin Grows Up

Enough beating up on former child stars! In recent years, we've seen plenty of 'em manage to reach adulthood sans embarrassing detours into jail or drug rehab.

Raymond Controversy Erupts at TCA

You gotta love Les Moonves. In an era when network execs never seem to meet a politically correct, over-rehearsed, innocuous soundbite they don't like, CBS's chairman and CEO is the rare bird that speaks his mind — regardless of the consequences. Case in point: At CBS's portion of the Television Critics press tour on Sunday, Moonves hinted to reporters that he could see his flagship comedy Everybody Loves Raymond returning in fall 2004 with or without series creator Phil Rosenthal and star Ray Romano.
