'Corner Gas's Nancy Robertson Returns to TV on 'Hiccups'

'Corner Gas's Nancy Robertson just can't get away from working with her real-life husband and long-time co-star, Brent Butt. The two both star in the Butt-created sitcom 'Hiccups', with Robertson playing Millie Upton, a children's author with anger management issues, and Butt as her quirky life coach. 'Hiccups' also features Laura Soltis ('The Guard') as Millie's long-suffering publisher who has to deal with the fallout from her star author's frequent freak-outs, and David Ingram ('Doc') as Millie's sleazy agent. We caught up with Robertson to chat about working with Butt again, her own Millie-esque moments and why she doesn't want Millie to have any love interests....

Sundays With Seth: 'Cleveland Show,' 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad' Recaps (VIDEO)

['The Cleveland Show' - 'Little Man on Campus'] ['Family Guy' - 'Baby, You Knock Me Out'] ['American Dad' - 'Stan's Food Restaurant'] This week was all about characters stepping into new roles and finding out that you're never too old to realize your dreams, even if you didn't know they were your dreams. That was the case with Lois, as she embarked on an impromptu women's boxing career. Cleveland fought to recapture some of his high school glory by coaching the high school baseball team to the state championship. And Stan sought happiness in the restaurant business. In each case, there was someone in the dreamer's corner, backing their play and really doing so for their own personal gain. Isn't that just how friends and loved ones are? In the case of Stan, he really should have known better. Roger?...

The Wire: Margin of Error

(S04E06) "Don't try this shit at home." -- Norman Wilson The Sunday before the all-decisive primary, and the candidates are in the pews, not to mention working the congregations after the service. Meanwhile, Bodie's crew, now under Marlo's thumb, works the corner. There's no day of rest for politicians or corner boys. This is not a good week for the cops -- the Major Crimes Unit is a joke under Sgt. Hauk and the commander installed by Rawls a couple weeks back. ...

Which Show Do You Like Better: 'The Hills' or 'The City'?

Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner (Hollywood) you have 'The Hills,' which lost original star Lauren Conrad but still boasts endless drama as well of two of the biggest villains on reality TV, Heidi and Spencer. In the other corner (New York City), you have 'Hills' offshoot 'The City,' starring LC pal Whitney Port, who's learning to make it on her own in the big, bad ... well, city. Two sibling shows, two different scenes ... which one do you prefer? ...

ABC Puts Up Its Dukes in Nicollette Sheridan 'Housewives' Drama

In this corner: Former 'Desperate Housewives' star Nicollette Sheridan ... in this corner: ABC, as the network has hired an attorney and is set fight back against the lawsuit Sheridan has filed against her former employer. According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has hired an employment litigation specialist attorney in Los Angeles, with the intent of making Sheridan and her attorneys fork over private documents related to her assault and harassment lawsuit against ABC and 'Desperate Housewives' creator Marc Cherry....

Don Cherry Interview: He's Nothing Like You'd Expect

Canadians just can't get enough of Don Cherry. Whether you love him or hate him, everyone has something to say about the country's most opinionated sportscaster. But judging by the number of people who tuned into Part One of the CBC miniseries 'Keep Your Head Up, Kid: The Don Cherry Story,' there's a lot more love than hate for the iconic Mr. Cherry. Fans of Cherry -- and his adorable dog Blue -- are in for a treat next spring, when CBC airs Part Two of his life story, 'The Wrath of Grapes,' which focuses on his storied tenure co-hosting 'Coach's Corner.' Like many things in Cherry's life, the miniseries was a family affair. His son Tim wrote it, and his daughter Cindy helped out with the costumes for the character of her mother Rose, played by Sarah Manninen. (Jared Keeso reprises his role as Cherry.) We caught up with the surprisingly soft-spoken Cherry last week to chat about what it was like watching his life story on the small screen -- and man, he is nothing like we thought he'd be!...

What's it gonna take to see Jerry Orbach Way?

If you spend any time in New York City, you'll notice that a lot of the streets have two names, the actual name and the ceremonial name. Stretches of NYC streets are named after Peter Jennings, Humphrey Bogart, and Joey Ramone, among others. So you'd think if you were the family of the late Jerry Orbach, it would be pretty easy to get a street or corner named after the Broadway legend and Law & Order stalwart. Think again. The New York Times reports that Orbach's widow, Elaine, has been turned down in her quest to have the corner of 53rd St. and 8th Ave., where the two used to live, named in Jerry's honor. Apparently the community board that governs that corner turns down all renaming requests on principle, wanting to keep the cityscape it governs as clutter-free as possible. But Elaine Orbach is determined; she intends on brining Jerry's 96-year-old mother and one of his sons to tonight's board meeting. Maybe Jerry's mom can guilt them into naming the corner after him.

New promo for Friday Night Lights

With the return of Friday Night Lights right around the corner (it premieres on Wednesday, October 28, at 9PM on DirecTV's 101 Network), there's been a lot of talk about who's returning, who isn't, and just what the heck is gonna happen now that Eric (Kyle Chandler) is coaching the East Dillon Lions and not the Dillon Panthers anymore. There's been plenty of news, too, regarding new characters and how the good-bye arcs for favorites like Matt (Zach Gilford), Tyra (Adrianne Palicki), and Lyla (Minka Kelly) are going to play out Well, DirecTV has finally released a short promo for the new season and guess what? Despite the fact that it features new footage (as opposed to a recycled season three montage), it gives us absolutely nothing. But it is pretty damn cool to look at. The set up of a tornado-esque storm ripping apart Dillon and culminating in a rift across the football field while everyone just sort of casually watches and walks away is pretty poetic. You know what else would be poetic? Seeing Eric...

Coach's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

Benjamin "Coach" Wade became the latest victim to succumb to the chaos in his tribe on Thursday night's episode of 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,' as the once formidable Villains lost even more ground to the reinvigorated Heroes. The Villains had a tough time re-grouping after last week's ouster of 'Boston' Rob Mariano and, after a "bowling for carbs" reward saw the heroes win their third straight challenge -- and chow down on pizza galore -- morale dipped even lower. Back at Villain central, as per usual, people began jockeying for position. Scheming Sandra Diaz-Twine hatched a plan to save her -- and fellow weak link, Courtney Yates -- "I'll be like, 'Hey Russell, Coach wants you gone.' And I'll bet that Russell [Hanz] will believe me and get rid of Coach," Sandra plotted. Read the interview after the jump....

Things I Hate About TV: The 'what's next' bug thing

The moving graphic in the lower left corner of my television screen has officially gotten out of hand (I think Adam would agree). Rather than just letters rolling in and out to tell me what's up next, it has become quite distracting. I realize that's the point: to get me to notice the crap in the corner, but I'd rather watch the show. Most recently, I was watching something on VH1, when a purple 'Z' actually whooshed up and covered the entire screen and then faded away to tease whatever the hell it was teasing. I don't even know what it was for, I just know it was too much! Also, on USA Network lately, Wynonna and Cowboy Troy keep dancing around in the lower lefthand corner of my screen to tell me about the upcoming season of Nashville Star. Conveniently, they kept popping up when subtitles were on the screen. Arrrgh! And, guess what? The network played promos for Nashville Star in every break. So, give me a break. I guess this is the networks' way of getting around that pesky TiVo fast-forward that we're...

Say Goodbye to Coach Tanaka, 'Glee' Fans

Coach Tanaka is taking his broken heart and moving on from Lima, Ohio. Yes, 'Glee' has parted ways with Patrick Gallagher and the lovelorn football coach he portrayed. Yesterday, TV Guide reported the addition of Dot Jones in the recurring role of a female football coach, leaving audiences to assume she'd be working with our favorite lovesick coach, but now comes word from the same source that Gallagher has been dropped from the series. A bit weird to announce his replacement before his departure, right?...

Coach Gets Emotional on 'Survivor' (VIDEO)

Things got a little intense when Coach got emotional on 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS) tonight. First he starts talking about how there's never been anyone on the show like him, but that he doesn't need anyone to validate him. Then he does a 180 and says, "Why doesn't anybody ever say anything good about me? Am I that bad of a person, man?" We did kind of feel for the guy when he got all weepy, though. Man hug! Watch the video after the jump....

What to Watch Friday, May 1

'Wife Swap' and 'Supernanny' (8PM & 9PM, ABC) 5th season finales In this corner: It's the Schults family, whose members love Halloween so much that they cover their walls with fake blood and operate a creepy haunted house. And in the other 'Wife Swap' corner: The Smith fam, led by 63-year-old dad Allen and 54-year-old mom Christine, two no-nonsense parents who don't allow their teens to watch TV or surf the Internet ... so you can imagine the friction that ensues when the families' moms swap households for a week. Meanwhile, 'Supernanny' Jo is tackling some sticky family issues of her own, as she ties to calm down four violent, fighting siblings and the church employee dad who's all about spanking vs. timeouts....

Bake-Off! 'Ace of Cakes' vs. 'Cake Boss'

In this corner: Champ Duff Goldman, star of the Food Network's custom cake show 'Ace of Cakes.' Every week at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md., Duff and his team of hipster bakers build confections that defy both imagination and gravity for events such as weddings, movie premieres and the Super Bowl. And in this corner: Contender Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's 'Cake Boss.' Each week at Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, NJ, Buddy and his crew (most of whom are family members) create equally elaborate cakes for customers ranging from Sweet Sixteens to the American Museum of Natural History. Surely there's room on TV for two wildly creative cake artists? Yet fiercely partisan fans of each show have been taking sides and letting their preference be known. (Just Google "Ace of Cakes vs. Cake Boss."...

The Class: The Class Learns About Hurricanes

(S01E03) I saw a rough-cut version of this episode about a week ago; it was so rough that the video time stamp was sitting not only in the corner of the screen, but in the corner of the TV picture Kyle and Aaron were watching. But no matter; the jokes were the same. It's sort of ironic that, in this episode, the storyline that had the least amount of plot -- Kyle and Aaron watching Holly do one of those "poor schmuck reporter in a hurricane" reports -- had the most laughs. I mean, who didn't laugh when Holly got knocked cold by a stop sign? Anyway, the rest of the episode shows that The Class is going in a funny direction. It also shows that it's willing to take some time and figure out which stories work and which don't....
