Community Season 3 spoilers: Annie's rival, Jeff's father and Chang's... rise to power?
Williams, who is best known for playing The Wire's Omar, the stick-up boy with a strong moral code, will appear in at least three episodes...
Question: I just looked up Men in Trees on TV Guide's handy-dandy directory and was shocked and dismayed to find that it had been moved to Fridays at 10 pm/ET, the death row of the television world. Why? Any insight would be appreciated. I was really looking forward to Grey's Anatomy and Men in Trees together again. Wishful thinking, I suppose.
Answer: Well, if Big Shots (the new drama following Grey's this fall) fares the way last year's Six Degrees did, which from what I've seen so far would be the right way to go (into oblivion: talk about smarmy), maybe Men in Trees could shift back there the way it did last season when Six Degrees collapsed. I couldn't agree more; Grey's and Trees made such a nice fit, and with Ugly Betty starting the night, what an enjoyable three-hour block. The good news about the move to Fridays is that expectations won't be so great, and with Trees already sitting on so many unaired hours from last season, I'm reasonably convinced ABC will just let it alone
Nip/Tuck stars Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon will receive seven-figure bonuses on top of their standard five-percent salary increases for the coming Season 5, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter. The bump bolsters each actor's total compensation to about $125,000 for each of 22 episodes.... Once she pops out Tom Brady's progeny, Six Degrees stunner Bridget Moynahan has a deal set up at ABC wherein she will either get her own starring vehicle or be cast on one of the network's 2008-09 pilots, says Variety.
Hi all. I've been checking ABC's website periodically to see when they might make a new episode available and I'm happy to report the wait it over. I'm not sure how they'll be rolling out the remaining episodes, but I'll keep you posted.If you have any comments please feel free to post them here. I'll add my two cents soon.
Two of my first Trivial Matt'rs blogs were dedicated to my early thoughts on the 2006-07 TV season, and at long last I have a few minutes here to revisit that "forecast" and see how I did. This is literally the first time I have looked back at those blogs, so here we go.Brothers & SistersI said: "Expectations were modest" given "foreboding backstage shuffles," but "by the end I was pulled in." Outcome: Lotsa critical acclaim and an early Season 2 pickup by ABC!The ClassI said: "The cast threatens to be unwieldy, but... I smell another [How I Met Your] Mother." Outcome: Some avid fans, some "decent" ratings, but no renewal yet. (Oh, and they shed one cast member.)RunawayI said: "The concept is nifty" and "good casting."Outcome: Far from a runaway hit, it was shelved after just a few airings.VanishedI said: "I need more answers, or at least hints of answers." Outcome: Fox's answer was, "Nope," and Vanished... quickly did just that.HeroesI said: "This show will be full of surprises...
