THAT'S A-MOHR-É!

In a segment airing on Friday's Access Hollywood, actor-comedian Jay Mohr (Jerry Maguire) reveals that he and girlfriend Nikki Cox (Las Vegas) are engaged to be married. "It's going to be a winter wedding," adds a spokesperson for Cox. read more

Scoop! Days of our Lives hustler...

Scoop! Days of our Lives hustler Brody Hutzler (Patrick) will report to the set of NBC's Las Vegas on Monday to tape a guest gig. His role? A sexy masseur who oils up and rubs down Ms. Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, General Hospital) in the March 10 episode. Hold on a sec: Vanessa abandoned the daytime suds for prime-time TV and she's still getting sensual healing from my fave soap hunks? No fair! read more

I wanted to know your take on ...

Question: I wanted to know your take on NBC's scheduling changes after the Olympics. I personally think that NBC may be putting itself in a grave situation. First I need to talk about the moving of Law & Order to Wednesdays, an hour earlier, at 9 pm/ET. This is a horrible time slot considering its competition. I have to give up Law & Order because I already tape Veronica Mars while I watch Lost. Again Scrubs was denied a Thursday time slot (post-Earl when The Office ends in March). And I feel that NBC is trying to annoy Dick Wolf. First, Trial by Jury was canceled, they move Law & Order to Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET and now they are airing Conviction Fridays at 10 pm/ET (the same slot as Trial by Jury) when they should pair it with Law & Order: Special Victims Unit since many SVU fans are going to watch because of Stephanie March reprising her role as Alexandra Cabot. Also, Deal or No Deal and The Apprentice are the lead-ins to the underappreciated Medium. They should have kept read more

What a great column for ...

Question: What a great column for TV-trivia buffs! There should be some kind of site that deals with questions about performers in commercials. But since I know you know — and I don't and would like to — who is the long, lean, lovely blonde in the Old Navy spots that ran after Carrie Donovan's passing? Thanks for watching.


Answer: No, no, Mike, thank you for reading. It sounds like you're thinking of model Molly Sims of NBC's Las Vegas. But she not only appeared in those ads after the 2001 death of Donovan — a New York Times fashion editor — but she also worked with her to shill for the chain.

You may also have caught her in various fashion print ads over the years, as well as in the Victoria's Secret catalog and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. And she's not only cover material, she's read more

I'm often quick to criticize NBC...

I'm often quick to criticize NBC when it blunders, which sometimes seems like a full-time job. And it's pretty clear the network is still far from perfect — witness the bungling of The Book of Daniel, buried on Fridays where low ratings would almost certainly have doomed it, even without a religious-right protest that scared away spineless advertisers.

But when NBC does something right, as in a series of aggressive moves announced over the weekend, it seems only right to take notice. Among the highlights:

Ta-ta, West Wing: Calling it quits was inevitable, but even so, I feared that NBC would, out of desperation, try to keep the franchise going after President Bartlet passes the torch to his successor. Thankfully, that will not be the case, and the show will wrap up with a retrospective and series final read more

NBC RENEWS TWO, SHUFFLES OTHERS

In other Peacock Network news, both My Name Is Earl and The Office have been picked up (and deservedly so) for next season, Will & Grace's eighth and last season will conclude May 18 with a one-hour retrospective and an hourlong finale, and, post-Olympics, The Apprentice and Deal or No Deal will call Monday home, pushing Las Vegas to Friday. Meanwhile, Law & Order will air an hour earlier on Wednesdays — opposite Lost. Now that's criminal intent. read more

Now I am not a prude. In ...

Question: Now I am not a prude. In fact, I am an ex-sailor who seldom passed up a chance to feed my prurient interests when opportunities presented themselves. But does it seem to you that this season's episodes of Las Vegas are heavy on raunch and short on plot? Even the now-obligatory musical guest of the week serves little more purpose than to feed the sleazefest. Characters I used to invest in emotionally are no longer interested in anything but making pointless and vulgar comments about their coworkers and guests. I come away from watching an episode wanting to take a shower to wash off a vague sensation of feeling dirty. If I wanted that, I would read Hustler or watch the films made by some of the guest stars of a recently aired episode concerning a porn convention at the Monticello. Las Vegas (the show) needs to clean up its act. Answer: I'll let this rant stand without comment since I don't regularly watch the show. (It never particularly appealed to or offended me on the ... read more

Las Vegas Bets on "Golden" Guests

Las Vegas' James Lesure with Kelly Clark and Gretchen Bleiler

NBC's Las Vegas is coming down with Olympic fever. For tonight's episode (airing at 9 pm/ET), three top U.S. snowboarders — two of them 2002 gold medalists — will be the reigning celebrities at the show's Montecito Resort & Casino and star in a two-and-a-half-minute "minimovie" to promote the 2006 Winter Games at the end of the show. According to Olympics host NBC, the strategy of embedding hopefuls in a prime-time drama before the games is unprecedented. The idea came from Las Vegas creator and executive producer Gary Scott Thompson, who says he wanted to take advantage of his network's preparations for broadcasting the 2006 Games in Torino, Italy, beginning Feb. 10. "If NBC has the Olympics, then why can't we get some Olympians?" Thompson says.   read more

Arrested Development Blame vacation...

Zach Braff, Scrubs

Arrested Development Blame vacation hangover, but I'm betting I missed about half of the references to AD's imminent cancellation or (please!) move to another network, and the not-desperate ratings stunts they cribbed from other shows. Of course, I don't even have to say this, but please write in with what I've left out. There was the promise before the credits that someone would die and that the show would be live, the 3-D tomato toss and the flashing SaveOurBluths.org. So as not to break the third wall, that thinly veiled plot about raising money for a new attorney opened the door for the Bluths to beg for their survival, and to discuss whether they'd received help from the Home Builders' Organization (HBO, for those of you not yet over those hangovers) or if they'd have to read more
