'Supernatural' Scares Up a Spin-Off Webseries (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 14th 2010 6:45PM
Avid 'Supernatural' fans are certain to remember the names Ed (A.J. Buckley) and Harry (Travis Wester), a very different demon-hunting dynamic duo than the hunky pair of Winchesters we've come to know and love, and founders of the ill-advised paranormal investigation team, the Ghostfacers.

From as far back as season 1, Ed and Harry have brought their own brand of bumbling, semi-suicidal "ghost facing" to our screens as part of the 'Supernatural' universe, but on April 15, coinciding with the series' landmark 100th episode, the Ghostfacers will launch their very own Webseries on CWTV.com.

Lucky 'Super' fans who attended Creation Entertainment's recent "Salute to Supernatural" convention in Los Angeles already got a sneak peek at the spooktastic (and undeniably hilarious) Webseries, but now, thanks to the magic of the Internet, you can see it too. Check out the preview after the jump.

Stella Left for Dead After Swimming Pool Scuffle on 'CSI:NY' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 8th 2010 4:26AM
Stella Left for Dead on 'CSI:NY'Mac's (Gary Sinise) right-hand woman, Det. Stella Bonasera, has been known to go all fearless Rambo in past seasons of 'CSI:NY' (Wed., 10PM ET on CBS). Last night she took things to another level. While scoping out a bad guy's lair, the baddie attacked, throwing her into a swimming pool. A major underwater scuffle ensued, with Stella (played by Melina Kanakaredes, who does all her own stunts) just out of reach for the gun that would have put an end to it. When choking her didn't work, he proceeded to bash her head against the pool ledge.

Det. Don Flack (Eddie Cahill) stormed in and was able to shoot the bad guy in the leg. But Don had bigger problems -- spying her floating body, blood dripping from her mouth. Was he too late?

Fans Can Investigate 'CSI' at MGM Grand Las Vegas

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Feb 28th 2010 3:14PM
You get to inspect the crime scene at MGM Grand Las Vegas' CSI: The Experience.Fans of the original 'CSI' can try their hand at solving a murder right in the middle of the massive MGM Grand Las Vegas.

'CSI: The Experience' offers visitors families (and other visitors looking to escape the constant "dinging" and "blooping" of slot machines) a chance to follow a simulated murder case from the initial crime scene to a selection of the most likely suspect.

While the attraction's designers struggled in vain to make it a compelling and vibrant way to kill an hour or so, the exhibit is essentially a course in basic forensic science and observation.

On a recent trip to Vegas and the MGM on business, I decided to scoop up my magnifying glass (which I always take with me on vacation) and give it a try.

Harold Perrineau Stopping by 'CSI: NY' as Well as 'Lost' This Season

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 22nd 2010 11:00AM
Harold PerrineauMichael is scheduled to return to one of the realities of 'Lost' this season, but that's not the only place we can expect to see Harold Perrineau this spring. According to Entertainment Weekly, Perrineau is schedule to guest star on an April episode of 'CSI: NY.' He'll be playing the role of a death row inmate who must fight for his life during a prison riot.

The part that gets interesting for fans of the crime procedural is that Sheldon Hawkes will be in the prison along with Perrineau's character. What he's doing there hasn't been revealed, but there's apparently a connection between his past and Perrineau. I thought it might have more to do with his recent financial troubles, but perhaps there are secrets in Hawkes' past that will make his recent troubles seem like child's play.

Things are looking up for Ugly Betty... perhaps

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 10th 2009 10:18PM
ugly_betty_glassesIf you're an Ugly Betty fan, you might be wondering why ABC has been treating the show like a stepchild lately. I know I've wondered why the Peabody-award winning, Emmy-winning, universally hailed, feel-good show was getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop. Instead of a big, splashy Season 4 premiere, Ugly Betty was sort plunked onto the schedule on Friday night at 9 p.m. in mid-October. There was little fanfare and the ratings were underwhelming.

Well, things might be changing for the better for Betty -- like her gradual on screen makeover. With the cancellation of Eastwick, ABC has confirmed to AfterElton.com that Ugly Betty will move to Wednesday at 10 p.m. It won't happen right away, but if ABC is smart, the sooner they can shift Eastwick out of that slot and hand it over the Betty, the better.

CBS breaking out line of grown-up TV video games

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Nov 10th 2009 3:04PM
The ghost of Paul Lynde can soon play the iPhone game of Hollywood Squares.The term "adult video games" sounds admittedly dirty, so we'll steer clear of that and call CBS Consumer Products' upcoming line of TV series-based titles "grown up."

CBS announced in a press release that they're breaking out a line of games related to hit shows that aren't exactly on the kids' radars -- what with their rock n' roll and their Hula-Hoops and their "Beavis and Buttheads." You'd expect to see console or computer games based on The Clone Wars or Battlestar Galatica, but Diagnosis: Murder and Hollywood Squares? What would Paul Lynde say?

But, those latter two shows are on the list, with a PC & Mac game heading our way in 2010 for Diagnosis and an iPod Touch and iPhone game of Squares coming next year.

Jorja Fox on CSIThe latest puzzler for the 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation': How to stop a ratings slide that began with William Petersen's departure last season and has continued into a new season, during which the granddaddy of forensic procedural dramas has lost its crown as TV's top-rated scripted series to 'NCIS'? Answer? Stunts, starting with extending Jorja Fox's return to the show from temporary (five episodes) to indefinite.

Laurence Fishburne to do three-part CSI crossover

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 13th 2009 10:08PM
laurence_fishburne_csiGenerally speaking, the CSI franchise has been a ratings juggernaut for CBS. Still, this season the original CSI has been declining a bit. It started last season when Laurence Fishburne took on the role of Dr. Ray Langston, becoming the main man on the show with William Petersen exiting.

Well, in an effort to perhaps pump up Fishburne's popularity, CBS is doing something unique. For the first time, a CSI character -- Langston -- will crossover to the other two shows in the same week, all part of the same story.

Will it work? Probably. Crossover stunts are always fun and it'll give viewers who watch one of the CSI's or two, to sample the other. That's not as weird as it sounds. I only watch CSI, not NY or Miami.

No, no, please, not a Criminal Minds spinoff

Oh, no. Please. CBS, please don't. I know it's tempting when you see the NCIS: LA ratings -- number two for last week, topped only by NCIS! -- but please, refrain. What am I talking about? CBS is pushing a spinoff of Criminal Minds, asking the show's executive producer Ed Bernero and executive producer Chris Mundy to come up with a variation on Criminal Minds. Hmm... Criminal Minds 2.0? Son of Criminal Minds? Criminal Guts?

TV Squad Ten: Most visceral shows

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 27th 2009 1:02PM
Michael C. Hall is Dexter Morgan on DexterA good show can keep you so entertained that you're willing to fight sleep to watch the rest of it. A great show physically keeps you awake.

It gets into your bloodstream and forces more adrenaline into your heart.

It turns the synapses in your brain into ferrets on espresso that dash back and forth between the lobes and fires your mind on all of its cylinders.

It is visual cocaine, which is much healthier than actual cocaine and doesn't require a frequent visitor punch card for an eyes, ears, nose and throat doctor.

These are the shows that assault all five of the senses or less depending on how good of a health plan you've got.

What to Watch Wednesday, April 29

(9PM, ABC)
It's the 100th episode of the series, and one of the final four of the season, so it's only fitting that 'The Variable' delivers some major scoop.

This one's Faraday-centric, as the shaggy physicist begins to unveil all that he knows about the island. At the end of 'Some Like It Hoth,' Faraday showed up on the island as a scientist working for the Dharma Initiative. That factors into tonight's revelations, which also includes Mrs. Hawking and the truth about her connection to Charles Widmore.

And all this is leading up to the fifth season finale – the penultimate 'Lost' season finale ever – in which, rumor has it, another major Gilligan bites the dust.
