David

Our Eight Favorite TV Davids

by Jane Murphy, posted Mar 3rd 2011 4:00PM
David DuchovnyThe name David is king on TV, or nearly. Remember 'Starsky & Hutch'? Starsky's first name was David (who knew?). 'Dave' has had its own sitcom ('Dave's World', the '90s show starring Harry Anderson), and it is a go-to name for talk (nighttime's David Letterman and David Susskind, 'This Week''s David Brinkley and 'Today''s founding father, Dave Garroway).

One of the biggest TV stars of the last two decades, David Duchovny, (at right) once scored an Emmy nomination playing "David Duchovny." The 'X Files' and 'Californication' star made a riotous appearance on 'The Larry Sanders Show,' playing a side of "himself" that was strangely attracted to Larry.

Let's take a look at more TV Davids, Daves and, yes, even Davys.

'Lost' - 'Lighthouse' Recap

Jorge Garcia & Matthew Fox, 'Lost' - 'Lighthouse'
(S06E05)
Jack took center stage this week, in more ways than one. The character of Jack has always been frustrating to me, and I've realized it's because he's so well written and well-rounded. With many of the characters, you can safely anticipate their behavior, but Jack has thrown in a few surprises along the way.

Yes, his default setting seems to be stubborn, bull-headed anger, but we see enough of the introspective and thoughtful Jack that it's frustrating to see him succumb so completely to that mule side of his personality. Through the use of the Jack story we saw in tonight's flash-sideways, we actually got to witness both versions of Jack in one episode.

David Canary Is Leaving 'All My Children'

david_canary_all_my_children_abcOne of the biggest stars of daytime, David Canary, has chosen not to renew his contract with 'All My Children,' in large part because of the soap's relocation to Los Angeles according to Soap Opera Network. ABC hasn't confirmed the information, but the creator of 'All My Children,' Agnes Nixon, did. And prior to her confirmation, David Canary's daughter Tweeted about it to David's fans.

David Canary has been on 'All My Children' as Adam and Stuart Chandler since 1983, winning five Daytime Emmys (out of eleven nominations), and he's a fantastic actor. The roles of Adam and Stuart have been integral to the show, even after it was revealed that Adam was responsible for shooting – and killing – Stuart last year.

Review: NCIS - Power Down

NCIS did something so great on tonight's episode that I'm surprised I haven't seen it done on another procedural until now. If you haven't seen the show yet, I won't spoil it, but I will say that it was a complication that really made the show.

There were moments for DiNozzo to reference all kinds of TV shows from the past, a chance for Gibbs to prove that there's nothing he can't handle with aplomb, and even the opportunity for Abby to show that sans Cafe Pow, she's still the sharpest lab tech in NCIS. More on the case after the jump.

Review: NCIS - Endgame

People who don't watch NCIS usually think the show is all about the military, all about forensics, all about criminal procedures, etc. Well, an episode like this is a perfect example of how character-driven the show actually is. Leon Vance has not been as interesting as the director of NCIS as Jenny Shepherd was, but the look into his back-story we saw with this episode may be a game changer. For one thing, he has some wife.

But as much as the Vance story and his weird connection to Kai drove the show, it may be the sad sack McGee subplot that resonates. Poor probie. Tough luck, McGeek ... or McDigit, as Tony dubbed him. The redhead was a looker. Tony and Ziva were impressed. Oh well ... more after the jump.

Rescue Me: David

Michael Zegen and Maura Tierney
(S05E19) "This is all above board. It's underground of course, but it's above board." - Needles

What's that old saying? Chances are someone else has already said it better than you... or something like that? Well, this whole season of Rescue Me I've been looking for the right words to describe just how exactly I felt about it. There hasn't been a bad episode this season and I doubt any of the final three will disappoint either, but still - something has just been off.

Well, leave it to the show's co-creator, Peter Tolan, to put it in simple English at the TCA: when dealing with a shorter season (as in 13 vs. 22 episodes), you can focus on the quality of each episode (rather than being forced to move on to the next immediately). That's what I meant to say.

Upcoming docs: Trains, kings and other things

by Adam Finley, posted May 3rd 2007 8:03AM

slanted screenHere's a few specials airing over the next few days for you science and history types:

Tonight at 8:00 p.m., Crash Science: Trains premieres on the National Geographic Channel. The special looks at how scientists have made trains safer.

On May 6 at 10:0 p.m., the National Geographic Channel delves into new evidence regarding King David and King Solomon in Lost Kings of the Bible. Did they really exist, or is it just mythology? I'm sure I don't know, but I'm a firm believer in David's anti-giant policy.

Which couple is most annoying on The Amazing Race?

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 9th 2006 6:26PM
most annoying couplesA quick promo/contest/text message type thing appeared near the end of The Amazing Race last night, asking viewers to vote for 'Most Annoying Couple' on The Amazing Race. I found this funny because the show always tended toward positive votes, like 'VIP' for the episode. But not last night. I thought it was a great question that was worth more than just a text message... it's worth an all-out discussion, people!

The three candidates for 'Most Annoying Couple' were David and Mary, Sarah and Peter, and Rob and Kimberly. They all definitely lead the pack for 'Most Annoying'. (I'd show pictures of them, but CBS' website doesn't have any!)

Let's break it down after the jump, and you'll see who I find most annoying. Feel free to chime in down in comments.

Witch Doctor coming to SciFi

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 16th 2006 11:33AM
ben edlundThe networks have announced there upcoming shows at the recent Television Critics Press Tour, and the SciFi Channel is no different. There's a few science fiction programs I dig, but not enough to really call myself a science fiction fan. However, one show did jump out at me, and that's Witch Doctor, mostly because it was created by Ben Edlund, creator of The Tick. Defined as a "dramedy," the show will focus on David, a sick man who finds normal Western medicine cannot cure him. This leads him to a supernatural doctor and "the supernatural world that exists unseen all around us." David ends up with those same powers and takes over the magical clinic. Given Edlund's contributions to shows like Angel and Venture Bros., this could be pretty cool.
