Christina Applegate, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If someone were to ask which show of the late '80s and '90s would spawn some of the most acclaimed and successful actors of the modern generation, no one would have picked FOX's raunchy hit 'Married... with Children.' On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Christina Applegate marveled at the success the cast has seen.

While she's enjoying another career renaissance with 'Up All Night,' Ed O'Neill is finally getting some industry recognition for his work as family patriarch on 'Modern Family.' Meanwhile, Katey Sagal has been working steadily through the years, finally striking Golden Globe for her gut-wrenching performance on 'Sons of Anarchy.'

Christina Applegate Is Giving the 'Up All Night' Writers Tips on Writing a New Mom (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 7th 2011 5:00PM
The cast of 'Up All Night' are pretty much all raising young children in their personal lives: Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph, Nick Cannon, and Christina Applegate are all new-ish parents. Applegate stopped by 'The View,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) where she talked about the similarities between her real parenting life and her character Reagan's, and explained that she's given tips to the show's writers based on her own experience.

Before she even agreed to do the show, Applegate told the producers she needed special provisions to account for her daughter. She had a nursery built on-set, and her daughter spends a lot of time there while they're shooting. "They had to built me a room for her ... it's got her toys and a crib, and she takes her naps there and walks around," Applegate said.

'Up All Night' Series Premiere: Parenting and Partying Don't Mix (VIDEO)

'Up All Night' - 'Pilot'['Up All Night' Season 1, Episode 1 - 'Pilot']

There's a sweetness that really surprised me throughout the premiere of 'Up All Night' (Wed., 10PM ET on NBC). To be honest, I wasn't sure if Will Arnett could pull off the role of a normal human being, but he absolutely nailed it. His chemistry with on-screen wife Christina Applegate was so authentic, I believed their love completely.

It was the little moments they shared, and some clever editing by the writers to make it feel real. After a fight over who was or wasn't awake at what time to take care of the baby, we cut quickly to the next morning where it's kisses and quick apologies. This is a couple we can root for together, because they're in this together.

Reviews: 'Free Agents' & 'Up All Night' Stars Contend with Babies, Scene Stealers and Meltdowns

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 13th 2011 11:00AM
The good news about 'Up All Night' (10PM ET Wednesday, NBC) and 'Free Agents' (10:30PM ET Wednesday, NBC) is that they are among the better comedy offerings for fall.

It's true that the broadcast networks' half-hour offerings for fall are not strong, but I'm not trying to damn these two shows with faint praise. Given time to work out a few kinks and settle into a rhythm, they may provide some quality guffaws going forward.

To their credit, neither show overindulges in sentimentality. It's hard to walk that fine line between sincerity and sarcasm in a comedy, and though each show is a bit broad here and there, neither of these shows overindulges in the kind of false, cynical patter or the unearned, warm-and-fuzzy mawkishness that sinks so many network sitcoms.

Christina Applegate Keeps Interrupting DJ Pauly D's Interview (VIDEO)

Christina Applegate & DJ Pauly D, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Usually, when the first guest slides down to the couch on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) to make room for the next guest, they keep to themselves. They may occasionally chime in with some banter, but Pauly D wasn't prepared for Christina Applegate.

While Jay Leno was talking to the 'Jersey Shore' star about working an event for Kim Kardashian, he kept insinuating that Kim and Pauly had a relationship that went beyond professional.

"Now is that still going on with the new husband?" Leno asked, implying a sexual relationship.

"She's my friend. She's a really cool girl; the whole family," Pauly said, and then Applegate's voice could be heard abruptly saying, "Yeah, right."

Sasha's Dancing Breaks Christina Applegate's Heart on 'SYTYCD' (VIDEO)

Christina Applegate, 'So You Think You Can Dance'The final six contestants took to the stage on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX), giving us yet another strong night of performances. But one performance early in the program had the judges all choked up, including guest judge Christina Applegate.

Sasha Mallory took to the stage with last season's runner-up, Kent Boyd, for a contemporary piece that simply wrenched at the heart strings. Sasha has always been a brilliant technical dancer, but Applegate did a great job of summing up the difference between technical brilliance and brilliance.

She explained that she sees dancers who can do all these things technically perfectly and "I don't care." But to Sasha she said, "you put your finger against a wall and you break my heart."

Ed O'Neill on Being the 'Modern Family' Patriarch

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 17th 2010 5:02PM
Ed O'Neill of 'Modern Family''Modern Family' is a repeat tonight, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to give fans a little taste by posting the quick talk I had with Ed O'Neill in January. It was the last day of the press tour, and the critics were in the middle of an epic day of set visits; one of the most fun aspects of the day was that were able to wander through the sound stages at 'Family' and talk informally to the show's stars.

I found O'Neill in the kitchen of the house where his character, Jay Pritchett, lives with his trophy wife Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and old soul stepson Manny (Rico Rodriguez). As my fellow critics were beckoning me to get on the bus to go to the next set, I asked Ed a few questions about how Jay has changed this season, and what he thinks the legacy of 'Married... With Children' might be.

Julianne Moore, Maria Bello Among Big Name Talent on Nets' "Wish List"

by Audrey Fine, posted Jan 27th 2010 1:00PM
Julianne MooreOnce upon a time, hot shot movie actors would never have deigned to stoop so low as to appear on -- gasp --- TV, but thanks to big screen talent like Glen Close ('Damages'), Alec Baldwin ('30 Rock') and Laurence Fishburne ('CSI) having made the leap, more and more "A listers" have begun to think of the old boob tube as less, well, boob-y.

In fact, during any given pilot season, the networks compile a "wish list" of movie stars they'd love to get their mitts on and this year's no different. The Hollywood Reporter details that this time 'round, Oscar nominee Julianne Moore and indie darling Maria Bello rest atop the list for several of the more meaty female roles.

It seems that Moore, who's been dipping her toes into the television pool with a [much-mailgned] guest arc on '30 Rock' would be the dream addition to the Peacock net's take on PBS' long-running 'Prime Suspect.' ABC, too, has its eyes on Moore for its upcoming comedic drama 'Scoundrels' but has also approached Bello and former box office heavyweight-turned-compulsive-tweeter, Demi Moore about the role of a mom who tries to get her family of small-time criminals back on the straight and narrow.

Guess who's coming to Sesame Street?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 21st 2010 10:40PM
There are few signs in this crazy business that you have become an indelible and beloved member of the pop culture lexicon than getting a cameo appearance on an episode of Sesame Street. Case in point: Gallagher, O.J. Simpson and Kanye West have yet to appear on an episode of Sesame Street.

Well, would you want West teaching your kids the difference between "near" and "far," things that are yellow and why George Bush hates black people?

Some upcoming episodes of the long running PBS kids' show will include appearances by Christina Applegate on Jan. 25, Hugh Jackman on Jan. 27, Debi Mazar and Sarah Jessica Parker on Feb. 16 and Paul Rudd and Eva Longoria-Parker on Feb. 18.

Applegate coached O'Brien on the proper way to record a raw piece of dialog, then, courtesy of studio magic, the clip was sped up to resemble the voices of the three famous singing rodents.

Carrie UnderwoodIt's been a busy fall for multi-platinum recording artist Carrie Underwood. In early November, the 'American Idol' winner released her third studio album, 'Play On,' and reprised her role as co-host of the CMA Awards, along side Brad Paisley. But she's also been in the Christmas spirit this season, as indicated by her two-hour variety special, 'Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special,' which airs tonight at 9PM on Fox.

The show will feature musical performances as well as skits, pairing Underwood with Dolly Parton, Kristin Chenoweth, 'Idol' season 7 winner David Cook and Christina Applegate.

Underwood recently spoke to reporters via a conference call about her special, plus her own thoughts on the holiday season. Here's what she had to say.

Jane After Dark: Sexy Samantha talking Greek in Scrubs

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 13th 2009 10:00AM
Dirty Sexy Money Season 2Several DVD sets came my way this week, so I did some marathon viewing sessions for Jane After Dark. I'm brand new to some of these, so you'll get the stark, raw newbie version. But I'll start with one I've watched since the beginning ...

Dirty Sexy Money: The Complete Second and Final Season. I really liked this show at the beginning. It had all the elements of a great series, including excellent actors (starting with Donald Sutherland, Jill Clayburgh, and Peter Krause) and intriguing storylines with rich people, sex, murder, and mystery. But by the time they got to season two, the storylines just seemed to fizzle out. I would love to hear your thoughts on why Dirty Sexy Money didn't work. Crummy writing? Poor use of great actors? Too many characters to keep track of? Poor timing with the writer's strike occurring in the middle of its run, resulting in ten months between seasons?

Bonus features: Directing the Darlings (behind the scenes with director Jamie Babbit); A Total Knockout (a day in the life of Natalie Zea, who played Karen); Dirty Sexy Crafty (a featurette about the food on the set); Faux Pas (bloopers); deleted scenes.

Emmy Wish List: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

by Mike Moody, posted Jul 15th 2009 2:31PM
toni collette united states of taraLet's be honest. There are really only four or five real contenders for this category, and most of them were nominated last year. But it's not like the talented Tina Fey (30 Rock), Mary Louise-Parker (Weeds), Julia Louise-Dreyfus (The New Adventures of Old Christine) and America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) don't deserve the recognition. They all fit the bill, and most of their shows were damn good this year.

I'd be happy to see any one of them go home with the gold on Emmy night. I'd also love to see some recognition for Christina Applegate's work in Samantha Who?, a great show that got the ax earlier this year.

The new Chipettes: What nightmares are made of

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 14th 2009 3:03PM
The SqueakuelI'll admit, I watched a lot of Alvin and the Chipmunks when I was little, despite all its awkward 80s animation tendencies and general pointlessness. I even kind of liked it. When the Chipettes joined the gang, bringing even more high-pitched sass, I felt no need to cry shark-jumping (probably because the phrase had yet to be coined and I hadn't gotten to that Happy Days episode).

The Chipettes animated on the small screen were kind of girly and cute. The Chipettes in Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel are what you see before you die.
