The Show Girl Talks 'Covert Affairs,' Shark Week & Tony Robbins (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 9th 2010 10:00AM
'Covert Affairs' stars Chris Gorham & Piper PeraboAre you still looking for a sexy new summer TV show? Let me officially recommend 'Covert Affairs.' It's fun and 'Alias'-ish with a pretty impressive cast. Not enough? Let stars Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham sell you on it then.

If your tastes lean more toward the feel-good uplifting kind of shows, self-help guru Tony Robbins will motivate you to watch his new specials 'Breakthrough with Tony Robbins' because, in his words, it isn't "namby-pamby B.S." (In my words, the man takes everyone to Fiji to relax and refocus. Where do I volunteer?) I also have a TV event that, at this point, needs very little promotion: Shark Week! What can I say, I'm a fan.

According to reports, Underwood has joined the cast of 'The Event,' a new drama pilot about a conspiracy to assassinate the President, in which a regular man (Jason Ritter) finds himself caught in the middle. How very '24' of NBC. [Hollywood Reporter]

USA getting involved in Covert Affairs with Piper Perabo

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 31st 2009 2:00PM
Piper PeraboPiper Perabo's most recognizable roles have been in the Cheaper by the Dozen films, as well as a turn in Coyote Ugly. And yet, hers is one of those names unique enough to remember. Someone at USA recalled Perabo well enough to cast her in Covert Affairs, a pilot about a young CIA trainee abruptly called up as a field operative. While she thinks it's because she's so awesome and all, it turns out that it has more to do with some secret in her past.

In other words, she may be woefully unprepared for the cases she finds herself involved in. At least she'll have Christopher Gorham (Harper's Island) on hand to help her navigate, though I wouldn't trust him. Plus, he's blind which limits his abilities in the field.

For those of you tracking which of the Harper's Island alumni would be the first to land regular work elsewhere, it looks like it was the most unstable of the bunch. I guess that means Gorham won't be available for that Weekend at Bernie's style reunion special.

Here's a preview of the Harper's Island series finale

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 6th 2009 8:04PM
How would the remaining cast of CBS' Harper's Island like to die? That's one of the things you'll see in this video below. There's also footage of the two-hour series finale, which airs this Saturday.

And I'm sorry to fans who question my using the term "series finale" when it's the season finale and the show could always come back. Well, I'm basing it on the fact that this was meant to be a limited series and that CBS quickly moved the show to Saturday nights because of low ratings.

Ugly Betty: Curveball/The Fall Issue (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 22nd 2009 8:09AM
Ugly Betty

On last night's two-hour season finale of Ugly Betty, Henry came back to New York to warn everyone that there's a killer going around killing all of the wedding guests one by one. Well, no, but Christopher Gorham came back to possibly screw things up between Betty and Matt.

Was this a good season finale? Is the show as good as it used to be? Does it deserve to get another season (though it's moving to Friday nights next season, always a sign that it's on its way out)?

Harper's Island moving to Saturday night

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 27th 2009 7:27PM
Harper's IslandOh, fans of this show are going to be ticked.

CBS is moving their new murder-mystery series Harper's Island to Saturday nights. Guess the ratings just weren't what the network wanted, so starting next week the show will air on the night of reruns and movies. But don't worry that this is a sign that the show will vanish from the schedule altogether. This was created as a limited-run series and CBS says they'll show all of the episodes, just on another night (though I wouldn't bet on a second season).

I know what these networks are doing. It's all part of their master plan to make Saturday nights a "must-see" night of television again, an attempt to recapture of the glory years of shows like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Carol Burnett Show, and The Bob Newhart Show. Someday all of the best show will be on Saturday nights and we'll be home in our Slankets watching them.

Here's what's happened on Harper's Island so far

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2009 8:03PM
Sure, sometimes recaps can be unnecessary, but sometimes they're actually welcome, especially if you missed just an episode or two and you want to get caught up. Below is a summary of what has happened so far on CBS' Harper's Island, which airs tonight at 10. It's actually a good little recap for those of us who missed the first two episodes (of course, the full episodes are available too). Catch up before there are so many episodes you say to yourself, "eh, I don't have time to watch this!."

Ugly Betty brings back an ex

by Kona Gallagher, posted Apr 22nd 2009 5:09PM
christopher gorhamWhen Ugly Betty moved production to NYC, not everyone made the jump to the east coast. Most notably, Christopher Gorham, who played Betty's geeky-hot boyfriend, Henry, left the show. However, Michael Ausiello is reporting that Gorham, who has been seen recently on Harper's Island, is reprising his UB role this season.

As Betty fans know, our titular heroine has moved on to her Yeti classmate Matt (Daniel Eric Gold). Since Betty can't seem to focus on one guy at a time, Henry of course has to come back to New York. What confuses me about this entire storyline is that it seems very... familiar.

Will Harper's Island usher in a new way of programming television shows?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2009 3:02PM
Harper's IslandBack in January, I mentioned that I am going to give Harper's Island a shot. I've been a little antsy about getting involved in yet another continuing drama (and one that could be canceled at anytime), but this was filmed and is being marketed as a limited-run series. Somewhere between a mini-series and a regular season, and that makes me feel a little better about taking the time to watch it.

Of course, one could argue that shows like Kidnapped and Daybreak were also shows that were designed for a limited run, but NBC and ABC didn't market those shows the way that CBS is marketing this one. The ads for Harper's Island make it very clear that it's only going to be on for a short time. In the TV ads, they're very specific about the dates the show will run (April 9 to July 2), and the people behind the show are calling it "an event." It's a smart way to do it, and the TV ads have actually been clever and well-done.

Sure, I'll give Harper's Island a shot - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 14th 2009 3:03PM
Harper's IslandI'm a big fan of mysteries, but it's hard to watch them on television. I'm talking about the onslaught of serial TV shows that we've seen the past couple of years. For every Lost or Heroes we've had, we've had an infinite number of shows that didn't make it, such as Daybreak and Kidnapped. It's easy to get frustrated and disillusioned when you start to watch a continuing drama and the show doesn't even get past its first 13 episodes. ABC pulled Daybreak after a handful of episodes and then put the rest online. NBC did the same with Kidnapped (it was also on Saturday nights, which didn't work out either).

But I'm going to give Harper's Island a shot.

Harry Hamlin heads to Harper's Island

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 5th 2008 6:02PM
Hamlin dancingWhen CBS presented their upfront last May, one of the more intriguing dramas was a murder mystery/slasher film/whodunit about a wedding party on a Seattle island. It was called Harper's Island and projected for mid-season. The preview played like a cross between Ten Little Indians and Twin Peaks to me, and I liked what I saw. I certainly plan on giving it a try when it shows up on CBS.

It's still slated for early 2009, only now the actor playing the groom's loud, fun-loving and duplicitous uncle is going to be Harry Hamlin. He has been added to the Harper's Island cast as Marty.

Katie Cassidy joins Harper's Island

by Brett Love, posted Aug 6th 2008 8:30AM

Katie Cassidy - Supernatural, Harper's IslandI don't know if I can think of a tougher gig on television than being a girl on Supernatural. Things just never seem to go well for any of them. The good news is that the show seems to be acting as a springboard and many of the actresses have been able to land on their feet with good roles.

Adrianne Palicki moved from playing Sam's sweetheart, Jessica, to Friday Night Lights. Alona Tal, who played the controversial Jo, moved right into a regular spot on Cane. It was short lived, but still a nice credit. And now they're joined by Katie Cassidy, the season three demon, Ruby. She's been added to the ever changing cast of Harper's Island. She takes over the role, originally played by Samantha Noble, of the bride whose wedding is the setting for a whole mess of murders. Now, if we can just get someone to hire Nicki Aycox, the sinister Meg.

Ugly Betty gets a Queens welcome

by Erin Martell, posted Jul 19th 2008 9:33AM
America FerreraWhile Ugly Betty's move to New York City might not have been good news for the show's crew, Queens residents couldn't be happier to have the Suarez family in town. Fans welcomed the comedy series with a block party-style celebration in Jackson Heights, Betty's home base.

Actors America Ferrera and Tony Plana attended the event and thanked fans in both English and Spanish. The Ugly Betty cast and crew have already been seen filming in their new, more authentic surroundings. As Allison mentioned, America Ferrera was recently spotted riding a motorcycle in Brooklyn (dressed as Betty Suarez, of course).
