Tichina Arnold Gushes About Her 'Happily Divorced' Role on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 4th 2011 6:15PM
Tichina Arnold of 'Happily Divorced' on 'The Talk'The title 'Happily Divorced' refers to Fran Drescher's character on the TV Land sitcom, but it would be hard for anyone to sound happier than Tichina Arnold did on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), talking about her role on the show.

Arnold has been on some popular and long-running sitcoms, including 'Martin' and 'Everybody Hates Chris.' But she gushed about her 'Divorced' co-stars and seemed truly thankful to land the role of Judi Mann, Drescher's best friend on the show.

"I was so happy when I booked this gig because Fran, of course, is just, she is television," said Arnold. "And she just knows her stuff and she's amazing to work with. And she knows, she's very smart. Really, really smart. So she and I have bonded."

The CW schedules its Fall Preview in the middle of Daytime Emmy coverage

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 25th 2009 4:42PM
The Vampire DiariesThe CW certainly seems to have embraced their new goal of pushing the entire network in a very "female" direction. They've scheduled their new fall preview special on Sunday, August 30 at 6:30 PM, smack between a special spotlighting the top ten moments from The Tyra Banks Show and their red carpet coverage of the night's Daytime Emmy Awards.

That's nestled in a huge bed of estrogen from where I'm sitting. No wonder a show like Reaper didn't make it if this is the new demographic The CW is seeking. The manliest shows on the network are Supernatural and Smallville, and both of those do well with the ladies, certainly better than Sock did. Other than that, it's Gossip Girl, 90210, The Vampire Diaries, America's Next Top Model -- how did this happen?

It's almost all teen dramas now, and it's definitely skewing female. They managed to abandon comedies and African-American featured shows in one fell swoop by canceling Everybody Hates Chris and The Game, and they dumped the hellishly fun Reaper. All that's left is pretty people pouting. Is this what America wanted out of our fifth network?

Are We There Yet? coming to TBS, and bringing Terry Crews with it

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 15th 2009 5:04PM
Terry CrewsTBS started the 100-episode order with the Tyler Perry family of sitcoms. And now they're at it again with a similar offer on the table for a television adaptation of Ice Cube's film Are We There Yet? Even better, they've nabbed Everybody Hates Chris' Terry Crews to play Nick, the role Ice Cube played in the film and its sequel.

Crews was always the funniest character on Everybody Hates Chris, and seeing him as the fish out of water marrying into an instant family should give him plenty of opportunity for laughs. It's nice to see that shows featuring predominantly African American casts are still being developed somewhere since they've left network television completely now with the cancellation of The CW's comedies.

CW Cancels 'Privileged,' 'Reaper' and More

by Andrew Scott, posted May 20th 2009 11:00AM
PrivilegedCW is cancelling four of its series -- two dramas and two comedies, says Variety.

One of the biggest shows to get the ax is 'Privileged,' which aired on Tuesdays after the popular '90210' reboot. 'Privileged' remained on the 2009 bubble in true roller-coaster fashion, with earlier rumors of a midseason pick-up. There were even reports that the network would re-air the show's first season in the summer.

However, today's cancellation ends all talk -- a decision that series creator Rina Mimoun called "truly heartbreaking," according to the Ausiello Files.

Also getting the boot from the CW is 'Reaper.' 'Reaper' was in a similar position last year as one of the network's bubbled shows, but still managed a 13-episode pick-up for midseason. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for next season's lineup.

Wife Swap'Wife Swap' and 'Supernanny'
(8PM & 9PM, ABC) 5th season finales
In this corner: It's the Schults family, whose members love Halloween so much that they cover their walls with fake blood and operate a creepy haunted house.

And in the other 'Wife Swap' corner: The Smith fam, led by 63-year-old dad Allen and 54-year-old mom Christine, two no-nonsense parents who don't allow their teens to watch TV or surf the Internet ... so you can imagine the friction that ensues when the families' moms swap households for a week.

Meanwhile, 'Supernanny' Jo is tackling some sticky family issues of her own, as she ties to calm down four violent, fighting siblings and the church employee dad who's all about spanking vs. timeouts.

(9PM, NBC)
Several dramas that have been brewing for weeks explode in yet another smartly written, superbly acted episode of 'FNL': An accident with his grandma forces Matt to admit he needs his mom's help in caring for his granny, while Riggins is uncharacteristically unselfish in order to help Lyla snap out of her self-destructive funk and Tyra gets some much-needed confidence boosting from her mom.

But it's beleaguered J.D. McCoy whose situation takes a turn for the worse.

The QB's dad has belittled his beaten down son all season, and when the teen finally stands up to the old man, the senior McCoy crosses the line from screaming creep to physical abuser.

(8PM, The CW)
What kind of trouble could Chris and Greg possibly get into at a Fat Boys concert? None ... unless they've used a pair of fake IDs to get into the age-restricted show and then get caught up in a raid of the concert venue.

Which they did. And which they do. Elsewhere, Rochelle tries (the operative word) to throw a surprise party for Julius, and Drew becomes a consumer advocate.

When Chris' bro orders a pair of x-ray glasses that don't allow him to see through walls (and other things a randy teenage boy might want to see through), he goes after the company who sold him the faulty glasses and demands satisfaction. Or, at least, a refund.

It's the beginning of season 4.5, but it's also the beginning of the end for the show, as tonight's installment kicks off a string of 10 new episodes that will lead to the series finale.

But (Star)buck up, 'BSG' devoted, because the remaining episodes promise to be epic (producers have hinted that several of them may even be super-sized), beginning with tonight's revelation of the final Cylon.

Yep, no waiting around for this big reveal, as the identity of the fifth Cylon happens while Adama and the Colonial crew ponder the condition of Earth and get more than a little frakkin' freaked out over their shocking discovery.

Anyone wondering what to put in Monk's Christmas stocking this year can start with an extra-large bottle of antibacterial gel; the germaphobe is going to need it when he agrees to help three homeless guys (particularly unkempt homeless guys) investigate the death of their friend.

Meanwhile, 'Psych' pals Shawn and Gus have their own holiday case, as a little girl begs them for help in getting a mall Santa out of jail.

Of course, there's more to the story where Santa and his little helper are concerned, and they're not the only ones with a secret: Shawn is trying to keep Gus from finding out that Shawn and Joy, Gus' sister, got busy under the mistletoe.

The CW's new Sunday lineup...complete with pooper scooper

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 26th 2008 10:03AM

The Drew Carey show is one of those shows you'll see on the CW's Sunday lineup.To the programming monkeys over at The CW: Do you really believe that you are an honest-to-goodness competitor in the market right now? Because, if you were, then you would probably be doing something more than just relying on the teen angst shows that populate your weekday schedule.You would probably be trying again to get original programming up and running on the weekends, as well. Particularly on Sunday nights.

Sadly, you're not doing this. In fact, according to the most recent press release you sent out, you're pretty much caving in on Sundays. Instead of giving viewers some new shows to try out, or even reruns (or, as you say, encores) of your more popular programs, from 5-8 pm you're giving us first season episodes of Everybody Hates Chris and The Game, second season episodes of The Drew Carey Show and first season episodes of Jericho. The only people I can see being even remotely happy about this schedule are Jericho fans.

heath ledger'Doomed to Die? 13 Most Outrageous Hollywood Curses'
(8PM, E!)
Was Heath Ledger's death really just part of a curse on 'The Dark Knight'? Were the deaths of four cast members of the 'Poltergeist' series a coincidence, or were those flicks also cursed?

And what about the dead rock stars at 27 curse ... Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison ... coinkydink or fate?

Those are a few of the well-storied curses the E! folk explore in this special, which also includes scoop on the alleged Billy Bob Thornton Curse (several of his co-stars have died untimely deaths, including Bernie Mac, J.T. Walsh, John Ritter and the aforementioned Ledger) and the so-called Curse of James Dean's Car.

Talk about calling a do over! Thirtysomething single Bella ('Grey's Anatomy's' Elizabeth Reaser) visits a psychic who tells her she has just one year to find her true love, or she's likely to end up alone.

As if that wasn't enough to send her biological clock ticking, ticking, ticking, Bella's also told that she's already met -- and dated -- the man of her dreams, meaning she's gotta pull out the titular list of exes to reconnect and see which one was The One who got away.

Sure, it's an only-in-TV land premise, but Reaser is a delightful, quirky, and, thankfully, happier character than she was as 'Grey's's' trauma-prone Jane Doe. Although, considering Doe's woes, she'd almost have to be ...
