Jenna Elfman Has a Dharma Initiative

Jenna Elfman still believes in Dharma.

Hi-larious. That's the word coming out of Jenna Elfman's mouth, midconversation, as she picks up the phone for this TVGuide.com Q&A. What is the gifted comedienne in the midst of describing? That was the first topic at hand as we used the occasion of the DVD release of Dharma & Greg: Season One to chat up Elfman — fresh from Courting Alex's abbreviated run — about her sitcom hits, misses and lessons learned, the Dharma- read more

Was This TV Season Harsh to New Shows?

Reunion, Love Monkey and Commander in Chief

Reunion. Threshold. E-Ring. Invasion. Emily's Reasons Why Not. Love Monkey. Commander in Chief. Heist. What do these shows have in common? They all debuted at some point during this soon-to-wrap TV season, yet each saw their run either cut surprisingly short or handicapped by irregular scheduling. Was 2005-06 the worst year ever to sample a new show? Were the networks especially hasty in deciding the fate of freshman series? TVGuide.com consulted a panel of experts with unique points of view to examine this strange little season gone by. Are New Shows Getting Short Shrift?Jeff Bader, executive vice president of ABC entertainment programming and scheduling, dismisses the suggestion that prime time is a crueler-than-ever proving ground for new series.

Hi, Matt! I just read that ...

Question: Hi, Matt! I just read that Out of Practice is going on hiatus again and may even be canceled. Please say it ain't so! I adore this show. The script is so tight. The characters and the actors who portray them are brilliant, and the show has me crying with laughter whenever I watch it. Why, oh, why won't they move it back with Two and a Half Men, where it was rating fairly well and was safe? Answer: It is true that with The Amazing Race now airing Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET, Out of Practice and the much worse Courting Alex are for now in limbo again. It's a fact that every comedy on CBS wants that time period following Two and a Half Men, but it looks like The New Adventures of Old Christine has it tied up for the rest of the season. And if the numbers (and the quality) hold, it may well inherit that slot again in the fall. Of all the shows that tried out that spot this season, Christine is my favorite, but I'd like to see CBS give Out of Practice a second chance, if only because I ... read more

THE RACE IS ON... WEDNESDAYS?

If you get dizzy during this item, please remain seated with your head between your legs. OK, here we go: CBS has decided to yank Out of Practice and Courting Alex, and to move The Amazing Race into the sitcoms' Wednesdays-at-8 time slot, effective next week. Taking Race's old berth on Tuesdays will be reruns of various CSI shows, of which, thank heaven, there are enough to go around.

On those rare occasions when the...

On those rare occasions when the networks realize they've made a grievous mistake and fix it, it seems only right that we should acknowledge it and say thanks.

So thanks, CBS, for doing the right thing by The Amazing Race, and more important, for the show's family audience, by moving the show back to an earlier time period. As has been much discussed since the show was moved to 10 pm/ET this spring, with a season far superior than last fall's "family" edition, the new time period was simply on too late for many of its fans to watch it live. Starting next Wednesday, April 5, Race will now air Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET for (presumably) the rest of the season. (Crime-drama repeats will take over Race's slot, and struggling freshman sitcoms Out of Practice and Courting Alex will di read more

Ed's Pal Glad to Be Courting Alex

Josh Randall, Courting Alex

It was a tall order — literally — finding the right man to play opposite statuesque Jenna Elfman on CBS' Courting Alex, which makes its Wednesday-time-slot debut tonight at 8:30 pm/ET. In the end the sitcom opted to pair Josh Randall, the man formerly known as Ed's Dr. Mike, with the woman formerly known as Dharma. Here, Randall speaks with TVGuide.com about his alter ego's certain swagger and weighs in on how Alex avoided the grim fates suffered by Emily, Jake and that familiar Monkey. TVGuide.com: Jenna is 5'10" and you're over 6 feet tall. I have to think that Courting Alex's casting office looked like basketball tryouts.Josh Randall: [Laughs] You know, I happened to come in at a read more

On the Bubble
The early word on what the networks will renew next season

Kevin James, The King of Queens

This week the networks began meeting with ad-agency execs to talk about what's in development for the 2006-07 season. That means it's time for producers of current shows with less-than-robust ratings to start worrying about getting picked up for next season. Here's what industry insiders are telling the Biz. ABC: The network's comedies are having a tough year in the ratings, but you can't cancel all of them. Rodney, Hope & Faith, Crumbs and Less than Perfect aren't likely to make the cut. According to Jim, George Lopez and Freddie have a chance of returning. Since ABC has two more hours to program in the fall now that football has moved to NBC, shows that would otherwise be doomed have a chance. We're talking Invasion and Commander in Chief. Their survival depends on the strength of the network's new-program development. CBS: Another season of The King of Queens depends on whether the n read more
