She's been an elementary school spy, Little Pete's friend, the Key, a nurse, a snarky rich girl and so much more. Now, she's ready to graduate to a criminal profiler. (Well, a criminology student who has a gift for profiling and a dark past.)

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Trachtenberg is teaming up with 'Gossip Girl' honchos Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage to produce and star in the project at The CW. The series only has a script order so far.

Were you watching Eric McCormack and Sherry Stringfield in the Lifetime original movie 'Who Is Clark Rockefeller?' on Saturday night? If so, did you see the whole movie? Apparently, an awful lot of people didn't. Both Comcast and DirecTV viewers have reported that the Lifetime signal cut out after the first 57 minutes of the broadcast.

Review: The New Adventures of Old Christine - Truth or Dare

The New Adventures of Old Christine: Truth or Dare
It's always nice to see that the men Christine falls for are as damaged as she is. Well, one of her suitors tonight is anyway. Things continue developing intimately between Christine and Max (Eric McCormack), until she gets a text from Mr. Harris. You remember Mr. Harris, don't you? Ritchie's former teacher who was so gorgeous that Matthew and Richard developed weird fixations on him as well.

That's right. Blair Underwood is back, reprising his role as Mr. Harris. And while he remains as handsome as ever, things couldn't be more complicated between him and Christine as they were tonight.

'The New Adventures of Old Christine' (8PM, CBS)
Old Christine has a new love dilemma, but trust us, you're not gonna feel too sorry for her. Just as the wacky single mom seems to have found love with therapist Max (
Will & Grace' star Eric McCormack), guess who's popping back into her life? How 'bout a certain Mr. Harris (Blair Underwood), a.k.a. Ritchie's former teacher, the hottie who dated and dumped Christine when things got a little complicated with their relationship. Mr. Harris returns and wants to get a little somethin'-somethin' started with Christine again ... who will she choose? Let's be honest, with Christine, the bigger concern is that she'll somehow end up losing them both.

Review: The New Adventures of Old Christine - A Whale of a Tale

The New Adventures of Old Christine: A Whale of a Tale
The title pretty much gives it all away, if you didn't see the promos. I saw them, and yet I must have forgotten them, because I was still in for a surprise when Eric McCormack bent over to help Christine with her flat tire. Things have been jumping around a bit with this series, as if we're getting things somewhat out of order. Either that, or they just really trying to make things self-contained.

Sometimes, they act as if Matthew is still living at Christine's, like the last new episode, and then he's back at his new place with Richard. But when they're here, there's no indicating that Richard and New Christine are expecting. Instead, Richard is completely focused on the bachelor pad aspect of it.

The new girl in Matthew's life was written pretty well, particularly in how much she was into Matthew -- even after catching him sniffing her bra -- and how much she was clearly made uncomfortable by "Rick."

Review: The New Adventures of Old Christine - Nuts

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 12th 2009 12:35PM
The New Adventures of Old Christine(S05E07) I guess the fate of Marion Ross was handled off-screen, because Matthew and Richard are settling into her old digs, and she was nowhere to be seen this episode. Now that I think about it, though, she could be shacking up in Matthew's old digs out in the backyard. It would make for a pretty funny callback to have her character pop back up. Maybe even act as if Christine didn't even know she'd moved in back there.

I wasn't as impressed with the forced obligatory "we're different but now we're roommates" storyline for Matthew and Richard. Hopefully, now that it's out of the way, the writers have some ideas of some fun things they can do with the mismatched pair. In five seasons, we've not seen a great deal of interaction between them, but their differences could make for some good comedy.

Review: The New Adventures of Old Christine - Dr. Little Man

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 22nd 2009 3:28AM
Eric McCormack(S05E05) This could turn out to be the single most important episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine. Dare I say it was "a very special episode of" The New Adventures of Old Christine? Oh, who am I kidding, things will never change, but isn't that why we love it.

It was a lot of fun seeing Eric McCormack as Matthew's mentor in therapy, as well as his office-mate. That's an easy way to set him up for a recurring role on the show for awhile. And they gave him a shady past, which is an easy way to write him off the show at a moment's notice.

He was there to give Christine someone new to bounce her craziness off of. I absolutely loved their first scene together. Christine all hopped up on diet pills from the '70s, dressed like Maude and working as a temporary fill-in as Matthew's secretary. Every week Julia Louis-Dreyfus cracks me up with just how undignified she's willing to look for this role.

TNT pulls the plug on Trust Me

Trust Me duo
On paper, Trust Me looked like a sure fire hit. I tuned in week after week to watch the show, so I consider myself a loyal viewer, but I have to be honest. The show never took off. Bob got it right in his early look, Trust Me had all the elements for something special, but it just never jelled. TNT has cancelled Trust Me after one season.

The guy in charge of TNT programming, Michael Wright, implied that a drama set in the advertising business was just a little too inaccessible for viewers. And that was the issue; not enough Nielsen numbers.

Trust Me might be going bye-bye

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 19th 2009 10:02AM
Eric McCormack Trust MeAre there any big fans of TNT's Trust Me out there? I'm really curious to find out. I like the show, but it still hasn't hooked me. I thought it started out with a lot of potential, and the charismatic leads – Eric McCormack and Tom Cavanagh – are great, but that's not enough to keep me coming back every week.

I guess most viewers feel the same way. Trust Me has been getting killed in the ratings for weeks, and now it looks like the show might never get a chance to find its groove. McCormack is reportedly ready to move on. He's been cast as the lead in an ABC comedy pilot produced by Tad Quill (Dirty Sexy Money).

TV Squad Ten: Canadians who shine on US TV

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Mar 9th 2009 5:01PM
Cobie SmuldersIn case you didn't know, I'm Canadian. That being said, I watch tons and tons of American TV, partially because our main English channels -- CTV and Global, just to name two -- mostly air US shows. And, let's admit it, I enjoy a lot the shows created by my friends south of the border.

Since there are more TV shows produced in the US and because actors can make more money down south, a lot of Canadian actors go to the USA. to work (or try to get work in a US show shot in Vancouver or Toronto). Here I present you with ten Canadian actors currently starring in lead roles in various primetime US TV shows. Did you know these ten actors were not from the US?
