EXCLUSIVE: Jenna Elfman to Guest on 'Shameless' Finale

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 4th 2011 12:30PM
Jenna Elfman, best known as half of 'Dharma and Greg's' title couple, will guest star in the second season finale of Showtime's 'Shameless.'

The drama, which stars William H. Macy as the patriarch of a struggling Chicago family and Emmy Rossum as his eldest child, returns Jan. 8, but we'll have to wait until the twelfth episode of the season to meet Elfman's character.

The actress plays Jill, "a woman with a dangerous past and an awkward present," according to the network.

When the new season of the show begins, the Gallagher clan is sweltering through a hot Chicago summer and Fiona, Rossum's character, is working at a trendy nightclub while her siblings Carl (Ethan Cutkoski) and Debbie (Emma Kenny) run a day-care center out of the family home. (That sounds like a terrific idea for the chaotic Gallagher household, right? More people on the premises?)

Jenna Elfman Loves Getting to Make Out With 'Cute Boys' on Movie Sets (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 9:15AM
Jenna Elfman and Craig FergusonThere are certain perks to being a movie star, and Jenna Elfman has been very lucky to enjoy one of the big ones. "I get to make out with awesome guys a lot," she said on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

Luckily, her husband of 20 years is also in the acting business, so he understands. As strange as it is that Elfman says she tells her husband, "I'm gonna go make out with him today," about whoever her co-star is, at the same time it makes for a good level of honesty in their marriage.

"Am I supposed to pretend that I don't like making out with all these cute boys when I come home?" Elfman asked Craig Ferguson. "I cannot live with those secrets."

That statement probably has a lot to do with why her husband is so okay with what she does. She's so completely open and honest in their relationship, how could he not trust her implicitly?

Giving Birth on 'Accidentally on Purpose'It's finally happening. Billie (Jenna Elfman) is going into labor on 'Accidentally on Purpose' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on CBS). But Billie is still having trouble with the whole pregnancy thing, and she desperately wishes that she could hear some music while giving birth. Zack (Jon Foster) responds by singing her a song. The song he chooses is... 'Push It' by Salt-N-Pepa. Interesting selection! Although it is kind of appropriate, considering what Billie is trying to do.

Watch the video after the jump.

Fake Labor on 'Accidentally on Purpose'What's the best way to get out of a speeding ticket? On 'Accidentally on Purpose' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on CBS), the preferred method is to... fake labor pains during a pregnancy. Billie (Jenna Elfman) and Zack (Jon Foster) get pulled over by a cop after driving too fast, and then the very pregnant Billie spills her soda all over her lap. "Did your water just break?" the confused cop says to Billie. "...Yes," she says.

And now, Billie's two male friends have a difficult decision on their hands.

CBS orders a bit more Accidentally on Purpose

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 4th 2009 9:02AM
jenna_elfman_accidentally_cbsCBS Monday night comedies have been doing pretty well so far this season, as far as the ratings are concerned. The Big Bang Theory is challenging Two and a Half Men for top Nielsens for a sitcom; How I Met Your Mother is doing as well or better than last year, and the new kid on the block, Jenna Elfman in Accidentally on Purpose, has benefited by being smackdab in the middle of all that established comic success.

CBS has ordered five additional episodes of Accidentally on Purpose. It's not a ringing endorsement, but it does give the show a chance to improve on what it's done thus far.

Back in the Primetime Saddle

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 30th 2009 5:00PM
This season, some of TV's heaviest hitters have resurfaced with new roles and new shows. How will it pan out for our small-screen darlings? Will it be a full-fledged comeback (Alec Baldwin), a nice way to make a living for a few seasons (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) or a mere blip (Matthew Perry)? Here's my handicap.


Patricia Heaton returns in 'The Middle'
(Premieres Wednesday September 30th, 8:30 pm, ABC)

Type Cast? Heaton plays a flustered, harried mom in small town America, with a husband who helps out mostly with cutting remarks. And yet, this role is a big improvement over Debra on 'Raymond'.

The women of Cougar Town are obsessed with sex

Courteney_Cox_Cougar_TownSome of you may think that TV Squad is filled with cheerleaders, that we all love TV so much that we rarely pull out our swords and skewer a show. Well, this should change your mind. I tuned in to Cougar Town last night and, I have to say, I was appalled. I thought I had seen what is likely the worst sitcom of the season -- Accidentally on Purpose -- but Cougar Town has surpassed it in badness.

Let me preface the rest of this criticism by saying that I was a loyal viewer of Friends. I liked Bruce Springsteen's video Dancing in the Dark. Scream was a hoot! I've been following Courteney Cox's career for years and I think she's terrific. She's funny and pretty and self-deprecating. I went into Cougar Town with high hopes. In other words, I have good will for Courteney Cox, like Jenna Elfman.

Accidentally on Purpose: Pilot (series premiere)

(S01E01) Watching Accidentally on Purpose, thoughts of Seth Rogen danced in my mind. Not Seth, actually, but the film Knocked Up. This is the second year in a row that CBS seems obsessed with that film. Last season, it was Worst Week, with a schlubby Kyle Bornheimer channeling Rogen's goofy lack of grace. It didn't work and Worst Week bit the dust. Now we have Jenna Elfman in the Katherine Heigl role, knocked up by accident after a one-night stand, albeit with a twist. Instead of a schlub, Jenna's fling is a boy-toy named Zach.

And there you have the premise of Accidentally on Purpose. Are you ROFL? Will you LOL? Read on after the jump.

AOL TV got the dish on the new show, straight from Elfman, including whether she thinks the pregnancy was an accident or planned, if she's anything like free-spirited Billie and what YouTube video makes her smile.

Jenna Elfman is pregnant on TV and off

Jwnna Elfman in Accidentally on PurposeOn her new CBS sitcom, Accidentally on Purpose, Jenna Elfman plays a woman who picks up a guy, has a one-night stand and winds up pregnant. It may be a case of being overly practical, but in real life Jenna Elfman has gotten pregnant because, as she put it, "My character's pregnant the whole first season, so I said, 'It's a good time to have another baby, because we won't have to hide it."

Isn't that a good reason to have a baby? Elfman, who's married to actor Bodhi Elfman, is already a mommy. She and Bodhi have a two-year old son named Story. Hmm, you think they're ever tempted to sing, "Here's the story of a kid named Story..."?

TV Squad previews CBS's new shows

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 2nd 2009 2:00PM
cbs_logoGenerally speaking, CBS had a strong 2008, developing one bona fide hit drama -- The Mentalist -- even though shows like The Ex-List never found an audience or a critical plaudit. Ironically, I liked The Ex-List based on the screener I reviewed last summer, so go figure. Sometimes a preview can inform you about a show's potential and sometimes it's just the best it'll ever be.

CBS has shared previews for the new season and we've had a chance to take a look. There are star vehicles for Jenna Elfman, Alex O'Loughlin and Julianna Margulies, which would seem logical based on the success of Simon Baker as The Mentalist. CBS is counting on familiar, popular TV stars to win over audiences. Will the strategy work? It's probably too soon to tell.

More about CBS's plans for the new season

by Allison Waldman, posted May 19th 2009 12:03PM
Jenna hairWe're still over 24 hours away from CBS making their official announcements about the new season, but apparently pre-upfront news is as plentiful as upfront news, so here we are with more information about what CBS will be telling us tomorrow. In addition to the already leaked three dramas that are a go -- Alex O'Loughlin in Three Rivers, Julianna Margulies in The Good Wife, and LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell in the NCIS spin-off -- today we've learned about three more new shows.

Jenna Elfman is back on TV with a new sitcom. In 2006, she tried a CBS comedy called Courting Alex that failed to click, but she had a five-year run on ABC with Dharma & Greg. The actress toplines Accidentally on Purpose, playing a film critic (and I hope whatever publication she writes for doesn't go belly-up like so many others these days) who accidentally gets pregnant after a fling with a younger man. I'm laughing already.

It's a boy for Jenna Elfman

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 30th 2007 4:06PM
jenna elfmanIn other baby news, actress Jenna Elfman gave birth to a boy last week. She and her husband, Bodhi, named their son Story Elias. He weighed 7 pounds, two ounces.

Jenna has been laughing through her pregnancy and birth. When she was late term, she did this trash-talking basketball video with her belly hanging out. And the official statement about her birth is just as funny. It says Story is already a fan of "classical music, a clean diaper, mom's boobs and long naps. Story wants to give big props to his mom for all her hard work." Cute.

Hopefully we'll be seeing Jenna on television sometime soon. She had a short-lived show, Courting Alex, last season but it wasn't as good as she is.

Jenna Elfman and her baby play basketball - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 23rd 2007 9:03AM

jenna elfmanIf you've been searching the Web today trying to find video of a pregnant woman playing basketball, I'd like to say, "welcome."

At the bottom of this post, courtesy of Funny or Die, is a short clip featuring actress Jenna Elfman taking part in a game of B-ball, complete with trash talk and everything. That might be kinda humorous, but add in the fact that she's also pregnant and I'd say that's pretty damn funny. Elfman has a lot of great lines, but my favorite comes toward the end as she's walking off the court and tosses the ball away.

I'd love to see a whole series done this way, with Elfman playing a different sport in every video. I've always been a fan of Elfman's, though I never really liked Dharma and Greg. Funny, that.

Anyway, check out the video below. It does contain some bad language, so be warned.
