Betty White News of the Day: She's Going to Be on 'The Middle'

Betty WhiteIt seems like there's a new piece of Betty White news every day, doesn't it? Either someone has created a Facebook page to get White to host 'Saturday Night Live' or she's in a Super Bowl commercial or has actually signed a deal to host 'Saturday Night Live.' That's not a bad thing at all. I'd rather see daily news about White than about what celebrity is going to be on 'Dancing with the Stars' or which actor is sleeping with which actress.

Here's the latest from everyone's favorite veteran TV star: she's going to guest star on an upcoming episode of ABC's 'The Middle.'

White will guest star on my favorite ABC comedy as a librarian who goes after Brick because he has a lot of overdue library books. I assume she'll butt heads with Frankie or Mike too. This episode will be the season finale of the show (it has been renewed for a second season).

That's why I recognize Brick from The Middle!

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 21st 2009 2:09PM
atticus_shaffer_brickYou know how sometimes you see an actor or actress and they look so familiar, but you can't remember where you saw him or her, or what the TV show was? That's how I've been with the little boy who plays Brick on The Middle. His name is Atticus Shaffer, and since the ABC sitcom began this fall, I've been scratching my head over him. Where did I see him before?

Turns out that it was on a commercial for AIG. Yes, AIG, that huge insurance company that was a big part of the economic collapse. The company that was too big for America to let fail.

My Big Bang theory: The Middle's Brick is another Sheldon

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 31st 2009 10:00AM
Like a stray dog that works his way into your heart, I think I've fallen in love with The Middle. I didn't want to get so attached, because -- quite frankly -- ABC's track record for sticking with quality shows isn't so great. I'm still mourning Pushing Daisies. But The Middle is nothing like Pushing Daisies, nor does it fall into the quirky, clever mode of other shows that ABC has been promulgating for years. Ugly Betty is quirky. Better off Ted is quirky. Dirty Sexy Money was quirky. Quirky's the word.

Philip Marlowe back in action

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 12th 2006 2:04PM
Humphrey Bogart MarloweThere's a scene in Woody Allen's Manhattan in which he makes a list of all the things worth living for -- the Jupiter Symphony, Groucho Marx, his ex-girlfriend's face, etc. Whenever I make my list of reasons not to end it all, hard-boiled detective fiction always makes the list - books by Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Patricia Highsmith; films like The Crack-Up, Detour and The Big Sleep. So, I reacted with a mixture of excitement and trepidation when I read that ABC will be reviving Chandler's most famous creation - Philip Marlowe - for TV.
