Frances Fisher

Frances Fisher may have joined ABC's new drama pilot Partners, but she'd really like to work on one of the network's other shows.

"Modern Family, of course," Fisher tells TVGuide.com. "[It's] very unique [with] well-drawn characters, well-played by very talented actors and insightful writing."

DVD Pick of the Week: May 29, 2007

The Andy Griffith Show - The Complete Series courtesy Paramount

Alright, I'm cheating a bit for my "Pick of the Week" for May 29th because I'm picking something that isn't a DVD - Weeds Season 1 on Blu-ray. Besides being in high-def, this release fixes a major problem present with the DVD release; it's widescreen. I tried to sit through the first few minutes of Weeds when it was released on DVD, but it was framed poorly, and I shut it off in disgust. Now I have a chance to watch the show in widescreen, AND in high-def, and that makes me very happy. The disc also contains the extras from the DVD release; commentaries, interviews, and more.My DVD pick would have to be the complete series of The Andy Griffith Show. While I think CBS/Paramount is screwing the fans with the bonus material on this set, it's still a nice set. They've included "Return to Mayberry," the TV movie, and The Make Room For Daddy Andy Griffth Show Pilot on this set, along with all the episodes of the show.I'm sure some of you have children, so I'd like to recommend one of my f... read more

Into each life some rein must fall: Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood, Rawhide

Question: I used to watch Rawhide as a kid, and I remember trail boss Gil Favor, my favorite guy on the show, leaving near the end and Rowdy Yates taking over. Why did that happen? Thank you, and let me just say that while you recently joked about how you ramble, I appreciate your in-depth answers.


Answer: Why, thanks, Steve — I shall not disappoint on this one. The actors left the show for the usual reasons: money and ratings. Rawhide, a CBS success after launching in January 1959, had gone through a long string of producers and had fallen in the ratings, from sixth in 1960-61 to 13th the next year, 22nd the year after that and 44th the following year, so changes were in order. Eric Fleming, who played Favor, was let go, and a young guy by the name of Clint Eastwood, who played assistant trail boss Rowdy, got a promot read more

Premise: Cattlemen drive their herds across the Great Plains in this iconic Western. Gil Favor was the trail boss, assisted by Rowdy Yates (a breakout role for Clint Eastwood), with a great theme sung by Frankie Laine. After the series ended, Eastwood became a global superstar in a series of spaghetti Westerns for Sergio Leone.
