Felicity Huffman Translates - in Spanish! - for Eva Longoria at 'ALMA Awards' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 19th 2011 5:45AM
'2011 ALMA Awards''Desperate Housewives' took home the award for Favorite TV Series at 'The 2011 ALMA Awards' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC). The American Latino Media Arts Awards honors the Latino community, so it was no surprise that Eva Longoria spoke on behalf of the show after creator Marc Cherry.

But the women did have a little bit of fun with it when Felicity Huffman chastised Longoria for not speaking in Spanish. She then proceeded to speak in Spanish, translating what Longoria was saying in English.

That said, while Felicity hung in there very well, she did start to struggle the further they went along. In the end, though, it was a very cute bit, shaking expectations and having a little bit of fun.

'Desperate Housewives' to End After Season 8

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 5th 2011 4:30PM
Desperate HousewivesYou'll have to look elsewhere for your soapy domestic drama come May 2012, because that's when 'Desperate Housewives' will conclude its eighth and final season. Although ABC hasn't yet sent official word, the network is expected to announce the big news at Sunday's Television Critics Association panel. UPDATE 8/7/11: ABC has since made it official.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the news was completely unexpected considering all four of the show's big stars -- Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Eva Longoria -- had signed on for two more years, and creator Marc Cherry had publicly stated he wanted the series to run for nine seasons.

(S06E20) "His name was Eddie. Everyone thought he was harmless." - Mary Alice

Let's get it out of the way right now: this week's episode, 'Epiphany,' is no 'The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,' the show's 100th episode which starred Beau Bridges last season and had the same episode format. No matter, this week's installment offered us a nice walk down memory lane, including scenes with Mary Alice (above with 4-year-old Eddie, while showing us why the latter became to be the Fairview Strangler.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'We All Deserve to Die' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E19) "Sometimes ... we let it in." - Mary Alice about "Evil"

After months without mentioning the strangler storyline, 'Desperate Housewives' finally let "Evil" back in and treated us not only with hints and, sadly, a new killing, but also with the identity of the culprit!!!

We first saw the person in the second episode of the season. My immediate instinct was that the strangled was a young man with whom Julie may have had a complicated "thing" with and that I didn't think it was Julie's ex (played by Steven Weber). In comments TV Squad readers left to my review of that episode, most fingers were pointed at Danny, McCluskey, Ana, Angie, Roy, and Katherine. Of course, as more episodes aired, people were added to the list while others were removed. Did you guess right? The answer coming up!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'My Two Young Men' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E18) "You should never trust family photos. They are designed to be deceiving." - Mary Alice when describing the Van De Kamp's photos

Last week's episode set a lot of storylines in motion: Preston and Irina's upcoming wedding, Sam becoming a part of Bree's life, Katherine and Robin potentially becoming a couple, and Patrick eventually finding the Bolens. This week, these four storylines continued to be developed and questions were raised as we fast approach the final episodes of this season of 'Desperate Housewives.'

Before I comment on these four storylines and the fact that Preston still has the worst fake mustache in TV history, I must warn you that the next new episode will air on April 18. That means we will have to wait close to a month before getting new dish on our favorite Wisteria Lane residents!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Chromolume #7' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E17) "I know that you have a secret." - Gaby to Angie

'Desperate Housewives' titles are always found in lyrics of songs written by Stephen Sondheim. This week's unusual title is no different. 'Chromolume #7' is a song in the musical 'Sunday in the Park with George.' More precisely, the Chromolume #7 is a color and light machine featured in an act of the musical.

The title fits with Mary Alice's commentary at the end of the episode saying that it's not always easy to see people's true colors and that people hide their true nature from us every day. This week, we got confirmation on Angie's secret, we learned who Sam really is, we discovered how Gaby acted when she was a high profile model, and we met Preston's girlfriend and mustache!

(S06E16) "You may envy our lives, Gaby, but it's nothing compared to how we envy yours." - Bob to Gaby

After last week's episode centered around Robin, I expected this week's installment to put the main ladies back front and center. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the 'Desperate Housewives'' writers hadn't forgotten about some of the background characters and decided to give them center stage this week.

'The Chase' offered us tidbits about Penny, Karen McCluskey, Andrew, Celia and, two of my favorite recurring characters, Bob and Lee. While introducing a new cryptic character named Sam ... For sure, he has a secret agenda that will rock Wisteria Lane.

Felicity Huffman Explains Rambling 'Golden Globes' Speech (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 25th 2010 4:00PM
Felicity Huffman explained her rambling, incoherent introduction of the head of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association during the 2010 Golden Globes on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) today.

According to Huffman, she got confused by the teleprompter and things fell apart spectacularly from there. "In slow motion, it was like, 'No! There's Meryl Streep and Paul McCartney and they know I'm an idiot. No!'" Huffman said while acting out a slow-motion fall.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Lovely' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E15) "Hello, there!" - Roy to Robin

When Susan and Mike decided to have Robin live under their roof at the end of the last 'Desperate Housewives' episode, it was pretty much a given that her presence on Wisteria Lane would shake things up a bit. As expected, the men and teenage boys drooled all over her while the ladies wanted her off their block asap!

Even if I knew Robin would stick around for a while -- Julie Benz's stay on the show has been extended from three to an unknown number of episodes, by the way -- I never expected her to get a full episode centered around her, especially so soon. It almost looks like Marc Cherry and co. are ready to have her permanently move to Wisteria Lane, don't you think?

Not only did Robin have an impact on all ladies and their families, which helped change their minds about Robin, but the character's background got fleshed out rather rapidly. We may even know more about Robin after only two episodes than we did about the Applewhites at the end of their season!

(S06E14) "Stink, stank, stunk." - Lynette to Dr. Graham

Before going on a short hiatus, Desperate Housewives treated us with a so-so episode. This week's episode introduced an almost unrecognizable Julie Benz as stripper Robin (see above), whom Susan takes under her wing; offered us a funnily stinky performance from Frasier's Jane Leeves, which helped Tom and Lynette grow as a couple; put Angie and the Solises at odds as Danny and Ana were ready to take their relationship to the next step; and had the Bree-Orson storyline take a turn that I'm not enjoying at all.

Review: Desperate Housewives - How About a Friendly Shrink?

(S06E13) "The number one rule to a successful dinner party: keep discussion about your marriage to a minimum." - Mary Alice

Let's face it, all the Wisteria Lane residents need some one-on-one time with a shrink. From past episodes, we know that Tom and Lynette need to discuss their issues with the loss of the baby, Lynette's need for control and Tom's frustrations; while Orson and Bree need to cope with her affair with Karl and Orson being in a wheelchair and acting like a spoiled brat. This week, we can add that Gaby and Susan need to get over their need for competition and accept their children as they are; Bob and Lee must deal with their marital problems; and Angie needs advice so she can let new people in her life, aka Ana as Danny's new girlfriend.

Out of our favorite Wisteria Lane residents, only five met with a shrink and that includes Katherine, whom we finally (!) get news of.

(S06E12) After a dramatic plane crash and the housewives wondering what could happen as they tried to cope with their losses, it's time to return to normal life -- as much as one can have a normal life on Desperate Housewives that is -- on Wisteria Lane.

We resume about month after Karl's death. Julie and Susan learn what Karl left them in his will; Bree tries to get Orson to move back home; Lynette wants to know what will happen to her job; Gaby and Carlos try to get Juanita in a school. As for Katherine, she is still missing in action this week as she is still locked in the loony bin.

Review: Desperate Housewives - If...

Desperate Housewives
(S06E11) "No one knows who survived that terrible plane crash. Or more importantly, who didn't." - Mary

The plane crash that happened in episode "Boom Crunch" left us wondering if some of the Wisteria Lane citizens would make it alive or not. My predictions were that Karl, Celia and Mona would die. Some TV Squad readers predicted that Lynette would lose one of her yet-to-be-born twins because she threw herself in harm's way to protect one of the Solises kids.

Desperate Housewives' first episode of 2010 confirmed some of our predictions while treating us to the much advertised what if/ flashfoward episode of the series.

Which prediction was right? Answers and my two cents about the "what if" sequences, and more, coming up!

Gone Too Soon: Sports Night

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 14th 2009 7:04PM
Sports Night
A lot of times, when a show that we love gets canceled way too early in its run, we like to trot out the mantra: "It was before its time." But looking at a television landscape with The Office, 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation (and that's just one night on one network), I really do think Sports Night may have been too innovative for its own good.

Creator Aaron Sorkin even wanted the sitcom to air without a laugh track, but ABC balked and there is one evident in the first season. It was dropped by the second season, but unfortunately the show was dropped as well after only 45 episodes.

Character relations were front and center, and the humor was much more subtle and dry. In 1998, comedies were still dominating the television landscape, led by traditionally formatted shows like Frasier, Friends, The Drew Carey Show and ABC's TGIF lineup. Maybe the very non-traditional Sports Night should have been an hour long, and acted more like FOX's Ally McBeal.
