Aliens in America

Aliens in America gets axed

Aliens in America
Two weeks ago, I posted about Aliens in America's Adhir Kalyan landing an important recurring role on FX's Nip/Tuck. At the time I reported that news, it was unknown if The CW comedy would be renewed or not but it sure didn't smell good for the series since Kalyan, one of the show's star, got that other gig and rumors claimed that Scott Patterson was shopping around for a new job.

The grim reaper made a new victim: Aliens in America was canceled this week.

Aliens in AmericaIt's unknown if The CW's comedy Aliens in America will be renewed or not for a second season. However, we can get a hint from the fact that one of the show's stars landed a role, mind you a recurring one, on a well-established series.

Adhir Kalyan, who plays Raja on The CW show, landed an important recurring role on FX's Nip/Tuck.

Miss Guided: Homecoming (series permiere)

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 19th 2008 9:22AM

Judy Greer(S01E01) I'm not quite sure what to make of this show. It's hard to decide what I like and don't like considering that the show is really not that unique. For example, I've always been a fan of Chris Parnell but his work on Miss Guided pales in comparison to the stuff he does on 30 Rock. The same goes for Brooke Burns but if I had to choose, I'd rather see her in those jeans she wore on Dog Eat Dog.

Judy Greer is super funny. Her guest spot on Two and a half Men was brilliant in my opinion. So when she got her own show, I was interested to say the least.

Aliens in America -- An early look

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 30th 2007 11:30AM

Dan Byrd and Adhir Kalyan of Aliens in America

I'm trying to decide on my feelings about Aliens in America, the new comedy premiering Monday at 8:30 on the The CW. When I first reviewed the show back in June as part of a preview of The CW's new shows, I said that it actually had some potential However, after reviewing the re-shot pilot and the episode following it, I'm not too sure anymore. Oh, as a coming-of-age comedy about a boy just trying to make it through high school it has its moments. But, there are just some elements to the show that leave me uneasy. More about that uneasiness later in the review. For now, let me talk about the premise of the show, which you can see after the jump.

It's TV Squad's guide to the 2007-08 fall premiere dates

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 25th 2007 11:05AM

Pushing Daisies -- one of the new shows on the 2007-08 fall scheduleBefore beginning this post on premiere dates for the upcoming 2007-08 fall television season I want to mention a few shows that you won't be seeing on the list. They are: Arrested Development, Charmed, Joey, Everwood, Gilmore Girls, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Reba, 7th Heaven, Kidnapped, Vanished, and Standoff. Why, pray tell, am I not including these programs on the list? Because they've all been CANCELED!!! Face it, Everwood is not coming back in any way, shape or form. Let's get past that and move on!

What you will be seeing are the premiere dates for Heroes, Reaper, Bionic Woman, America's Next Top Model, Bones, and Survivor. At posting time the dates for ABC's season premieres had not been given out; therefore, they will not appear on the list. Of course, we could just make up the premiere dates for Samantha Who?, Pushing Daisies and According to Jim, but that wouldn't be very professional of us, would it? That's okay, because ABC's season doesn't really start until Lost begins airing anyway.

Are the stars out tonight? CW's summer press tour party - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 22nd 2007 8:40AM

The CW

While The CW appears to have some great new shows for the 2007-08 TV season (Gossip Girl; Aliens in America and Reaper), its summer press tour "all-stars" party could have used a few more, well, stars.

I get that the new Supergirl was stuck on set up in Vancouver (or maybe Argo City?) -- but were Chloe and Jimmy on deadline at The Daily Planet? We know it's "no flights, no tights" for Kal-El, but couldn't Tom Welling have hopped on the LuthorCorp jet? Alas, no one from Smallville or either of the brothers from Supernatural or Tyra Banks (America's Next Top Model) made the CW shin-ding held at the trendy Pacific Design Center's Fountain Plaza in West Hollywood on Friday night.

Fortunately, the atmosphere made up for the lack of high profile star power. Food by Wolfgang Puck, open bar (including Big Apple Martinis courtesy of Gossip Girl) and a Pinkberry frozen yogurt station kept the press from griping too much.

CW - executive session, fall season preview - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 21st 2007 7:00PM

The CWThe CW's got some funny sitcoms both old (Everybody Hates Chris) and new (Aliens in America -- more on that later), but the network's funniest asset is Paul McGuire, executive vice president, network communications.

Before introducing Dawn Ostroff, president entertainment, The CW, McGuire fires off some zingers to get the reporters up and running.

Of the recycled tote bags that The CW gave to the press (perfect for hauling all our cable swag home), McGuire quips, "They're made entirely from recycled billboards, including some from Hidden Palms -- or as some dirt bag reporter called it -- 'Hidden Ratings.'"

The CW press tour preview - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 20th 2007 10:59PM
The CWYou know you've moved on in the TV critics press tour from CBS to its sister network The CW by the pages -- those helpful young men and women who direct members of the press to where lunch is being served. They also bring handheld microphones to the reporters during the sessions so their questions can be heard.

I'm betting that the CBS pages are wearing the same polyester red jackets that I did way back when Murphy Brown was on the air.

The CW pages wear green coats, and the pages themselves all look like models. Many of them are hotter than the actors on the CW shows themselves. (And the stars on CW shows are pretty hot!) I wonder how many of the pages (actors, too, I'm betting) are thinking, "I should be on a show," as they're running a microphone over to a reporter.

TV Squad previews The CW's new shows

by Richard Keller, posted Jun 13th 2007 12:01PM

We review the upcoming CW shows in this postThe CW is in a tough spot this season. After losing a good portion of their heavy hitters due to cancellation (Reba, 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls), the network is basically starting from scratch. Only two of their scheduled nights, Thursday and Friday, remain intact. The rest of the schedule features at least one new show a night. And, being that we are TV Squad, we have a number of pilots to review for these new shows.

Some of the pilots reviewed on the DVD screeners we were sent are still in the 'work in progress' stage; yet, they still give a sense of the show's subject matter. In this post Brett, Paul, Keith and I will be previewing Aliens in America, Gossip Girl, Life is Wild and Reaper.

Aliens are coming, good news for Chris?

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 4th 2006 1:01PM
outer spaceA new pilot called Aliens in America has been picked up by what will soon be known as the CW. The comedy will focus on a shy nerdy kid living in a small Wisconsin town whose mother invites an exchange student to live with the family. The mother hopes the new friend will help her son become more popular, but the exchange student turns out to be Muslim. Sounds like another wacky comedy about cultural differences. Right now there's just not enough information to get me too excited about this show, but who knows, it could be good. The best news to come from this, however, is that the show is being described as a possible companion to Everybody Hates Chris, meaning Chris Rock's sitcom may actually make the transition to the CW after all. Very cool, says I.
