VIDEO: Royal Pains' Reshma Shetty Says Fans Are Torn Between Raj and Adam

Reshma Shetty

Just as Royal Pains' Divya is torn between two men, so are viewers about whom she should choose.

"People are broken up between the two," Reshma Shetty says. "I've had people say, 'You have to marry Raj, he's so sweet,' and some people say, 'Adam is hot, you have to marry Adam.'"

A Royal Mess on Royal Pains

Royal Pains

Diagnosis: Breakup? All's not sunny for Hamptons doc Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) and his rather coldhearted girlfriend, Dr. Emily Peck (Anastasia Griffith), on tonight's Royal Pains when the two physicians clash. "They are going to have their biggest fight yet," reveals executive producer Andrew Lenchewski. "It's going to start as something medical that illuminates the larger divide between them, and the types of relationships that they each want to be in."

And leave it to Hank's dear old dad, Eddie (Henry Winkler), to further complicate matters... read more

Question: I've noticed the last few years that shows that were "summer shows" started bleeding into the fall or having new episodes in the winter. I think season 1 of Damages was one of the first. It started in the summer but did not end until the fall, which made it hard to stay with once the regular shows started up. But now other cable shows are doing this, including splitting their seasons and airing them at other times. The Closer, White Collar, Burn Notice, and now Royal Pains, which started as ... read more

Roush Review: A Thursday Logjam

Perfect Couples

Because Thursdays weren't already crowded enough, guess who's joining the party?

In case you hadn't heard, American Idol is now setting up shop on Thursdays in the 8/7c hour, providing more intense competition to a time period that already includes a hit sitcom (The Big Bang Theory), a brilliant cult comedy (Community), a guilty-pleasure reality hit (Wipeout) and, resuming new episodes in a week, a guilty-pleasure supernatural hit (The Vampire Diaries).

Question:
What on earth were the writers thinking when they wrote the January 11 episode of The Good Wife? All the lawyers and investigators acted in a disgusting and sleazy manner, and the gratuitous violence against women done by the male investigator was unforgivable. One more repugnant episode like this one and I won't be watching the show. — Ruth

Matt Roush: I'm betting your reaction is exactly what the show's writers were hoping to evoke (that week, the script was credited to show creators/executive producers Robert and Michelle King). Maybe not the "I'm quitting you" thing, but revulsion for sure. The entire purpose of the episode was to show our quasi-heroes in a negative light. These are not saints, not even Alicia. And I'm glad the show allows us to see that her moral quandaries don't stop with her husband but often extend to her work. Even good lawyers and good wives play dirty, and The Good Wife expects the viewer to be able to handle that. It's refreshing to see a mainstream network drama go a little dark once in a while. That's why they call it drama... read more

Royal Pains: Winter Season Scoop!

Royal Pains

USA will air the second half of Royal Pains' Season 2 beginning January 20, so fans don't have to wait until summer to hit the Hamptons again with HankMed. TV Guide Magazine went in search of scoop at The Paley Center for Media's screening and panel discussion, held November 8 in Los Angeles.

The first January episode takes place at a three-day charity golf tournament benefiting the hospital. Jill is on a team with a boozy couple (the woman is played by Amy Sedaris) and a once-promising pro hindered by a degenerative muscular disorder in his hand (Tom Cavanagh). While Hank tries to fix him, he practices his game on Jill. "In the first episode back, one of our own actually gets sick and Hank has to work his diagnostic magic," Reshma Shetty (Divya) teases. The medication leads to a few loopy hospital bed confessions and makes Hank rethink a past love-life decision... read more

Royal Pains' Winter Season: Time for Second Chances

Mark Feuerstein

In the golf world, the term mulligan means a do-over, or to start fresh. The term is mentioned often in the winter season premiere of Royal Pains not only because most of the episode takes place during a Hamptons Heritage golf tournament, but because many in Hank Med's orbit are in serious need of second chances. Will Hank and Evan be able to start anew with formerly estranged father, Eddie, after finding out he's been digging into their boss' past? Will Divya break it off with Raj and start over after her passionate kiss with Adam or will she continue down the path to an arranged marriage? TVGuide.com talked with the stars and executive producers... read more
