Linda Evans Assures Ann Curry That She Doesn't Actually Hate Joan Collins (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 12th 2011 2:00PM
Yesterday, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales prepared for 'Today''s (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) interview with former 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans by staging a hair-pulling catfight of their own. Wednesday, Evans stopped by the studio herself to relive the classic scene with Ann Curry.

Curry asked if it was hard for Evans to be so hateful to Joan Collins, and Evans seemed taken aback by the implication. "I love to do stunts ... Barbara Stanwick got me involved in stunts when I did 'Big Valley,' so this was a lot of fun, it has nothing to do with hate, it was just choreographed," she protested.

TV hosts will normally do anything to ensure their hair doesn't get ruffled. But to prepare for their interview tomorrow with former 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans, 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) co-hosts Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie got into an old-fashioned, hair-pulling catfight ... in jest, of course.

After playing footage of the classic 'Dynasty' department store throw-down between Evans and Joan Collins, Guthrie and Morales were inspired to fake slap, hair-pull and strangle each other.

"It looks like so much fun!" Guthrie exclaimed, fighting through laughter.

Joan CollinsEarlier this year the much-vaunted 'Dallas' reboot became a reality. Now, in news to gladden the hearts of fans of shoulder-pads, sequins and shoving matches everywhere, Joan Collins has said that she'd love to return to TV for a second round of 'Dynasty,' should the opportunity arise.

And that's not all. She reportedly let slip that there may even be a script in place. According to 'The Sun,' Collins said she's been in "constant contact" with 'Dynasty' creator Esther Shapiro, "and apparently they've written a script."

But, Collins added, "I can't tell you anything about it -- it's top, top secret. ... I would love to be Alexis again because it was a great role."

by Maggie Furlong & Jean Bentley, posted Jun 22nd 2011 9:00AM
We used to watch 'The Real World' and 'Road Rules' religiously, and then MTV combined those powerfully awesome forces to create 'The Challenge.'

Well now we're old(er) and we're still inexplicably excited for their latest fight-to-the-death challenge, the series' 11th incarnation, 'The Challenge: Rivals' (premieres Wed., June 22, 10PM ET on MTV).

The Challenge: Rivals

Of course, looking through their slideshow of supposedly epic rivalries, only a few familiar faces from the old days truly stand out: Wes and Kenny, Adam and CT, Johnny and Tyler, Nehemiah and Evan, Paula and Evelyn and even Robin and Aneesa. We're not saying the rest of the eight teams battling it out aren't vicious (we know better than that), they're just not sparking any vivid memories.

So we thought we'd remind TV lovers what a true battle royale looks like -- here, our list of TV's Greatest Rivalries.

Six Other TV Prequels We'd Like to See

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 18th 2011 5:30PM
DynastyIf you haven't heard, they're making a big-screen prequel to the classic '80s primetime soap 'Dynasty' (which debuted 30 years ago last week). It will be set in the 1960s -- probably an excuse to get some of that 'Mad Men' feel -- and will show how Blake Carrington came to power and met Alexis.

It's hard to say how many people will actually go to a theater to see a movie based on a 25 year-old nighttime soap. Are even 'Dynasty' fans waiting for a prequel? Maybe if they cast Jon Hamm and Angelina Jolie to play Blake and Alexis (or they keep it on the small screen, which makes more sense).

Remembering John Forsythe: "Goodbye, Angels"

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 2nd 2010 6:00PM
John ForsytheIf you grew up in the '70s, odds are you remember hearing John Forsythe's voice but not seeing him. The 92-year-old actor, who passed away April 1 in Santa Ynez, Calif. due to complications from pneumonia, was the voice of Charlie Townsend, who ran the Charles Townsend (Detective) Agency, on 'Charlie's Angels' from 1976-1980.

Even though 'Angels' featured empowered women, it seems they never made a move until Charlie gave them the go-ahead. Charlie was often shown from the back of the head (another actor subbed for Forsythe) surrounded by bikini-clad women.

New TV on DVD Releases This Week

The Price Is Right logoHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

It's not every week that you see four different DVD sets for game shows released, but that's what we have this week: "Best Of" sets for 'The Price is Right', 'Password', and 'Match Game '73', as well as a special set for the Richard Dawson 'Family Feud' episodes. I actually might buy the first three (not really a big 'Family Feud' guy). Having DVDs for classic episodes of those three game shows might be fun.

I'd like to see someone come out with a sampler DVD set of short-lived game shows or even well-known game shows that will never get their own full sets.

  • 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold' - Vol. 3
  • 'Beverly Hills, 90210' - Season 9
  • 'Doctor Who' - The End of Time, The Waters of Mars, and The Complete Specials
  • 'Dynasty' - Season 4, Vol. 2

They're remaking Upstairs Downstairs

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 13th 2009 7:26AM
upstairs_downstairs_PBSBefore Dallas and Dynasty and Falcon Crest and Knots Landings captured the imaginations of American viewers, there was a British soap import that was even more compelling.

From 1971-75, PBS aired the British upper crust soap Upstairs Downstairs. And now Upstairs Downstairs is going to be remade. It'll be filmed and shown in England first before coming to America in 2011.

What made Upstairs Downstairs classic television – it won Emmys, BAFTAs and Golden Globes – was the way it depicted of the British class system. Upstairs you had the rich, privileged Bellamy family. Downstairs there were the servants who worked for them. The lives of all these characters intertwined in a well-written, brilliantly acted drama series.

As the seventh season commences, the cases continue. Tonight it's a flashback to 1966 and the events on a ship known for suicides, but the real crux of the show was more current. What's going on with Lily Rush since her near-death experience last year? When the case against Kitchener seems to be going soft, her reaction makes me wonder if our Lily is contemplating going Dirty Harry (Harriet?) on us.
