TR Knight Gone?

TR Knight Gone?

Posted by Dustin on 05.28.2009 at 11:19 am

E! News’ Marc Malkinis reporting that T.R. Knight will leave “Grey’s,” while Katherine Heigl waits to learn if her character Izzie will die.

Rumors have run rampant for awhile now that T.R. wanted off the show. Marc says the tension between him and creator Shonda Rhimes had become “unbearable.” ABC and Knight’s rep won’t comment.

Katherine Heigl has come underfire for “diva-like” behavior lately. Things were rumored to become ugly between her and the show when she withdrew from the Emmy race last year because she felt her character wasn’t given Emmy material. However she’s gone on record saying she wants to stay, if the show will keep her. More recently she’s been rumored to have been dropped from a new Julia Robert’s romantic comedy for demanding a larger salary than everyone else, but her publicist denies those rumors.

Harper’s Island: The Mystery Deepens!

Harper’s Island: The Mystery Deepens!

Posted by Dustin on 05.24.2009 at 4:42 pm

I’m trying to remember what all happened last night on “Harper’s” to give some kind of a recap, but let’s just say that last night is a bit fuzzy 🙂

Everyone began to realize there was a killer on the island. Abby showed Henry and JD the stash of clippings her father kept, how he was tracking a possible Wakefield clone. JD reminded them that Kelly kept swearing she had seen Wakefield alive, so they decided to dig up his grave. The Sheriff didn’t stop them either, he wanted to see himself if Wakefield was there. In the grave was a skeleton, but are we sure it’s him?

Trish told her sister that Richard had been cheating on her with their step-mother! However the step-mother really did love Thomas Wellington, Trish could see it in her eyes and the way she reacted to his death. Something odd was definitely going on with the mother and Richard. They also began to suspect maybe Richard killed Thomas, and decided to deal with him. Unfortunately he’s been dealt with, as he had a spear driven through his chest at the end of the episode!

JD snuck off near the end, and was seen by the little freaky girl who talks to ghosts. He put his finger up to his lips so she didn’t say anything. Something is going on between the two of them as well, I’m not sure what though. I think she knows who the killer might be! Anyways, JD went off and knocked on a door of a house. The guy with the burnt face opened it and JD went in to talk to the guy!

Thoughts On Ugly Betty’s Season 3 Finale

Thoughts On Ugly Betty’s Season 3 Finale

Posted by Dustin on 05.22.2009 at 8:18 pm

So here are my thoughts on the Season 3 Finale for “Ugly Betty.”

First of all, I have to say I loved the finale! It was great, possibly one of the best finales I’ve seen so far this season. A mix of happiness, sadness and enough mystery that doesn’t eat away at me.

First, I was so sure Claire had an affair with Cal and the result was Daniel. While they had an affair, and there was a baby, it wasn’t Daniel! She lied and claimed she had an abortion, but at the end of the show we saw her burning an adoption certificate. Who is the baby? My money is on Henry!

Willy tried to blackmail Claire over the abortion to get her to resign as acting VP of Mead Publications, but she refused. In fact, Cal sided with her and felt Willy’s role in the company needed reevaluating. Uh oh! Willy then hired some guy to find Connor, thinking he had enough money to get her back in. This confused me, as the way she made it sound, she was planning to use the money to buy Mead out from Cal? How do you use money stolen from a company to buy it? Only on TV?

Betty and Marc ended up going for the same job at Mode after one of the assistant editors died. They were both qualified and Willy and Daniel couldn’t decide, so they flipped a coin . . . and Betty got the job!

Her happiness however was short lived. Henry returned and complicated things with her and Matt. Matt asked Betty to move in with him, she was apparently hoping for a marriage proposal. She ended up kissing Henry, which Matt saw. Betty tried to tell Matt, but never found the time. He confronted her saying he knew they kissed, she didn’t tell him, it was over.

Later Matt surprised Betty with some news. His dad offered him a job at Mode and he took it, he’s now Betty’s boss! Okay Matt has officially entered creepy stalker land! He had no interest in publishing anymore, wanting to go into art school. Now all of the sudden he wants to do be there why? To just lurk over Betty? I’m sensing Betty is either going to quit next season over him, or Henry will come in to rescue her.

The sad part of the episode came with Molly’s death. We all knew she wasn’t going to live, but I guess I hoped a miracle would happen. In a way it did. She was present to see Daniel win some award for Mode, but it was her ghost that was present through the episode. Molly had died back at their apartment and appeared to Daniel as a ghost!

Gilles Marini confirmed to Us Magazine that he’s officially signed the deal to appear in an unknown number of episodes of “Brothers and Sisters.” The part? It has to do with working with Rachel Griffiths (Sarah Walker). Seems like he might be a love interest, as Sarah was last scene searching for love on the net.

New Show Descriptions:

“MELROSE PLACE”
In an elegant Spanish-style apartment building in the trendy Melrose neighborhood of Los Angeles, a diverse group of 20-somethings have formed a close-knit surrogate family. Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton, the original “Melrose Place”) is the landlady, still beautiful at 40, and a central figure in the lives of all her tenants, especially handsome and rebellious David Breck (Shaun Sipos, “Shark”). Sydney started an affair with David despite her turbulent history with his estranged father, Dr. Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro, the original “Melrose Place”). Both father and son learned through experience that Sydney was not above using blackmail to control people. Another tenant, high-powered publicist Ella Simms (Katie Cassidy, “Supernatural”), once considered Sydney her mentor, but their friendship was destroyed by betrayal, and Sydney threatened to evict Ella and ruin her career. Sydney also played a pivotal role in the career of Auggie Kirkpatrick (Colin Egglesfield, “All My Children”). After they met at an AA meeting, she became Auggie’s sponsor and encouraged his dream to become a chef. Now a successful sous chef at the trendy restaurant Coal, Auggie has been avoiding Sydney since she began drinking again. The other tenants include Lauren Yung (Stephanie Jacobsen, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), a medical student in desperate need of money to pay her student loans, and Jonah Miller (Michael Rady, “Swingtown”), an aspiring filmmaker who has just proposed to his live-in girlfriend Riley Richmond (Jessica Lucas, “Cloverfield”), a first-grade teacher. The newest tenant, 18-year-old Violet Foster (Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, “7th Heaven”), has just arrived in LA with her own secret connection to Sydney. When a bloody body is found floating in the courtyard pool, David is the leading suspect. However, as the police are soon to discover, almost everyone living at Melrose Place had a reason to want the deceased out of the way. An updated version of the popular 1990s series, MELROSE PLACE is from CBS Television Studios with executive producers Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer (“Smallville”). Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth”) is the director and executive producer of the pilot.

“THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE”
The life of a high-fashion model appears glamorous and sexy, but as every new model quickly learns, behind the beautiful façade is a world of insecurity and cutthroat competition. Two teenage models who are about to discover this world for themselves are Raina Collins (Sara Paxton, “Last House on the Left”), a stunning beauty with a secret past, and Chris Andrews (Benjamin Hollingsworth, “The Line”), a strikingly handsome Iowa farm boy. When Raina makes an unforgettable impression at a show introducing the new line from designer Zac Posen (appearing in a cameo role), she steals the spotlight from her friend Sonja (Mischa Barton, “The O.C.”). Sonja has been out of the country for mysterious reasons and is now desperate to reclaim her standing as the reigning supermodel. While Raina and Sonja live at the top of the fashion food chain, Chris is starting at the bottom, having just been discovered by agent Simon Lockridge (newcomer Dusan Dukic) of the Covet Modeling Agency, which is owned by former supermodel Claudia Foster (Elle Macpherson, “Friends”). At his first photo shoot, Chris’ inexperience almost derails his career until Raina comes to his rescue, showing him how to relax and work the camera. That afternoon, Raina brings Chris to the “models’ residence” where she lives along with other young hopefuls, including Marissa Delfina (Ashley Madekwe, “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”), Egan (Jordan Woolley, “As The World Turns”), Issac (Corbin Bleu, “High School Musical 2”) and the current alpha-male-model known as Kai (Nico Tortorella, “Twelve”). At an exclusive industry party that night, Chris is again impressed by Raina’s generosity when she steps aside to make sure Sonja lands a job that will resurrect her career. However, after an ugly scene with Simon, Chris is left to question whether he can survive in this world of dangerous excess and fleeting fame. THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE is from Katalyst Films in association with CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Ashton Kutcher & Jason Goldberg (“True Beauty,” “Punk’d”), Karey Burke (“True Beauty”), Mike Kelley (“Swingtown,” “Jericho”) and Carol Barbee (“Swingtown,” “Jericho”). Christian Duguay (“Coco Chanel”) directed the pilot.

“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”
Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, “DeGrassi: The Next Generation”) and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, “Everwood”) are still trying to cope with their grief and move on with their lives. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her sadness from the world. As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, “Army Wives”). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, and Elena has no way of knowing that Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans, while his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder, “Lost”) is the embodiment of vampire violence and brutality. Now these two vampire brothers, one good, one evil, are at war for Elena’s soul and for the souls of her friends, family and all the residents of the small town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Alloy Entertainment and Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”). Marcos Siega (“Dexter”) directed the pilot.

and it went to Kris Allen.

So was the right choice made? Honestly, I’m shocked, I thought Adam would have won. Some have already pointed out that Kris probably got a lot of help in the votes from the Gokey fans, which I guess if you think about it, is true. You either loved Adam or Danny, and most fans of one hated the other. So with Danny out, I think Kris got a big boost from his fans.

I think both will have great careers, but again . . . are we destined for yet another season when the runner up outsells the actual idol?

Leave your own thoughts!

90210 Season Finale

90210 Season Finale

Posted by Dustin on 05.20.2009 at 12:28 pm

So with 90210 now over, I wanted to post some thoughts on the finale, as well as the show in general.

First up, I really started getting into the show, more than I thought I would. I’d like to see a bit more stories with the older crowd, not just the originals, but also Annie and Dixon’s parents. I feel they started them, but kept dropping them. For example, Debbie’s desire to get a job. It’s only been mentioned a few times, I’d like to see them follow through with it as a real story. Also as someone in the shoutbox pointed out, where the hell did Tabitha go? Then there is Donna’s story that I felt was only somewhat resolved. I hope we see more of her, and Brenda, next season.

I really started liking the idea of Ethan and Silver as a couple, but we know Ethan is leaving, so that one is gone.

Watching Adriana say goodbye to her baby was heartbreaking, but I love her and Navid. I was honestly expecting Ty to die and Navid to be arrested for his death. It would have set up a good who-done-it.

Naomi SERIOUSLY needs some medication, otherwise she’s going to explode. I did however love when she told her sister “It’s my house, I paid for it, I’ll have a party!” Oh wrong thing to say though as her sister is one huge bitch, and I wonder how long it will take her to figure that one out? Liam probably won’t tell her that they slept together, but I bet she finds out somehow. That’s two boyfriends Jen has seduced!

Annie probably gave her best performance all season at the very end when she told everyone at Naomi’s party off, then reported it. However what, or who do you think she ran over? A person? An animal? It was just a lump in the road so we couldn’t tell. Clearly Annie’s in deep sh…. next season!

Ordered for Midseason: New Dramas “Miami Trauma” and “The Bridge”

New Alternative Series “Arranged Marriage” and “Undercover Boss,” Comedy “Rules of Engagement”

CBS, the only major broadcast network to grow its audience in all key ratings measures this season, announced today the addition of four new series to strengthen its already top rated primetime lineup for the Fall 2009-2010 season.

The new series include three dramas and one comedy. Chris O’Donnell and LL COOL J star in NCIS: LOS ANGELES, a spinoff from the hit drama NCIS; THE GOOD WIFE stars Emmy® Award winner Julianna Margulies in a legal drama about a steadfast wife and mother who boldly returns to work as a lawyer when her husband is imprisoned for a high profile political scandal; THREE RIVERS, a medical drama that stars Alex O’Loughlin as the head of a renowned transplant surgery team, and ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE stars Golden Globe Award winner Jenna Elfman in an ensemble comedy about a successful, single journalist who accidentally gets pregnant by a much younger man.

The freshmen series will join 18 returning series on the current CBS schedule.

CBS will return the season’s #1 drama/scripted program – CSI; #1 comedy – TWO AND A HALF MEN; #1 new series – THE MENTALIST and the #1 news magazine – 60 MINUTES, along with two franchise reality series – SURVIVOR and the six-time Emmy Award winner THE AMAZING RACE.

The other returning series include: THE BIG BANG THEORY, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, CSI: MIAMI, NCIS, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE; GARY UNMARRIED, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI: NY, GHOST WHISPERER, NUMB3RS, 48 HOURS MYSTERY and COLD CASE.

Ordered for midseason is a new fast-paced medical drama, MIAMI TRAUMA, from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer; the new police drama THE BRIDGE; the returning comedy RULES OF ENGAGEMENT; and the new alternative series ARRANGED MARRIAGE and UNDERCOVER BOSS.

On the strength of its scripted series, and the success of its two reality franchises, CBS will win the 2008-2009 television season in viewers, its sixth victory in the past seven years, and in adults 25-54 (projected tie with Fox). CBS is the ONLY network to post ratings gains over the last season in all key measures: +12% in viewers, + 3% in adults 18-49, and +8% in adults 25-54.

This top-rated schedule will serve as the springboard to introduce four new series – all of which have established franchises as a lead-in.

The 2009-2010 schedule:

On Mondays at 8:00 PM, the critically acclaimed ensemble comedy HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER opens the night and serves as a strong lead-in for the new comedy ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE at 8:30 PM. From 9:00-10:00 PM, television’s top comedy TWO AND A HALF MEN and the genius comedy THE BIG BANG THEORY form a power comedy hour. CSI: MIAMI, a perennial time period winner, completes the night at 10:00 PM.

On Tuesdays, NCIS kicks off the night at 8:00 PM, providing a seamless lead-in for its spin off NCIS: LOS ANGELES at 9:00 PM, followed by new legal drama THE GOOD WIFE at 10:00 PM.

Wednesday returns intact with the comedy block THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE and GARY UNMARRIED from 8:00-9:00 PM, as well as the crime drama tandem of CRIMINAL MINDS and CSI: NY from 9:00-11:00 PM.

On Thursdays at 8:00 PM, SURVIVOR returns to the time period it has won every year since 2004. And from 9:00-11:00 PM, CBS is pairing television’s #1 drama, CSI, with television’s #1 new series, THE MENTALIST.

On Friday, CBS plans to add the popular drama series MEDIUM at 9:00 PM, starring Emmy Award winner Patricia Arquette, to its top-rated Friday night lineup, forming a hauntingly compatible two-hour block with GHOST WHISPERER at 8:00 PM. NUMB3RS caps the night at 10:00 PM.

The Saturday night lineup remains intact, anchored by the night’s highest-rated show, 48 HOURS MYSTERY.

As always, 60 MINUTES kicks off Sundays at 7:00 PM, followed by the six-time Emmy Award winning reality series THE AMAZING RACE at 8:00 PM, which leads into the new medical drama THREE RIVERS at 9:00 PM. The crime drama COLD CASE anchors at 10:00 PM.
