Nick Jonas, Bernadette Peters Book 'Smash' RolesMonths before the premiere, NBC's 'Smash' has added two big names to its already impressive roster. Broadway-bound Nick Jonas and stage legend Bernadette Peters will guest star on the midseason musical drama.

According to NBC, the actors won't be playing themselves. However, they will be singing in their episodes.

Jonas will play Lyle West, a hot sitcom star who started his career as a child actor on Broadway. The show that gave him his start was written by Tom (Christian Borle) and directed by Derek (Jack Davenport).

Peters will play Leigh Conroy, Ivy's (Megan Hilty) mother. Peters' character is a Tony award-winning actress who is now living vicariously through her daughter.

Bernadette Peters checks in to Ugly Betty

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 11th 2008 4:38PM
Bernadette PetersOkay, now that it's behind us, we can say that Lindsay Lohan's turn on Ugly Betty was pretty lame. However, I have hope that other guest stars will do much better. Therefore, the news that Broadway star -- multiple Tony winner -- Bernadette Peters will appear on Ugly Betty is a good thing. Just the name of the character she's playing, Jodie Papadakis, is funny.

Please, please, let this be a sign of good things to come, because Ugly Betty could use an injection of good stuff. So far this season, the show has lurched around searching for its comedic soul.

miss piggy; the muppet showAs the ranking #2 fan of The Muppets here at TV Squad (Adam definitely has me beat), I'm happy to announce that season two of The Muppet Show will be available on DVD on August 7th. It's been about 2 years since season one came out on DVD and fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for more.

Season two is a 24-episode set with classic guest appearances by Bob Hope, George Burns, John Cleese, Milton Berle, Elton John, Bernadette Peters and Julie Andrews, just to name a few. The bonus material includes The Muppets Valentine Day Special, a pilot which aired two years before The Muppet Show came on air. It features Kermit and Mia Farrow, and is hosted by little-known Muppet 'Wally'.

Boston Legal: Guantanamo by the Bay

The sexy Bernadette Peters(S03E22) The opening of this episode made me laugh out loud throughout the entire credits. It's things like this that remind me why David E. Kelley is as successful as he is. So brilliant.

The line of the night had to be, "Human rights are so yesterday." I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Having Denny and Alan work on this case together was perfect. Without getting on my soapbox, I loved the statement it made about the Iraq war and the current state of the government but more importantly it pointed out that, like Alan & Denny, Americans who have different points of few can all work together for a common goal. As a liberal, who often insists he is right, I consider myself schooled.

Law & Order SVU: Choreographed

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 29th 2006 12:01PM
olivia benson(S08E09) I can't decide what I liked better about this episode-- Bob Saget or the return of Mariska Hargitay. Det. Olivia Benson comfortably slipped back in to being Det. Elliot Stabler's partner without much fanfare. No fanfare, really. She barely got a "Welcome Back" from Elliot. Casey was cold toward her, even though Olivia came back in time to help her get a conviction on a rape case. I think Det. Munch gave her the warmest reception. All these police types: bottling up their emotions! Sheesh!

Tony Awards to go on without a host

by Annie Wu, posted May 25th 2006 9:28AM
Radio City Music HallIt was recently announced that the 60th annual Tony Awards will go hostless this June 11, because "the 60th Anniversary show is bigger than just one host". Or maybe no one wanted to step up and take the chance of getting ripped apart by the public if things don't run smoothly. Anyway, instead of following the lone emcee tradition, this year's show at Radio City Music Hall will be carried by 60 different stars, including Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Bernadette Peters, and Hank Azaria.

Back in 2004, MTV's Video Music Awards went hostless, and I remember feeling somewhat disoriented while watching it. Whether this was because I was watching MTV or because it was hostless, is still up for debate.
