Billy Bush started out by asking if 'How to Make It' is the new 'Entourage.' Bell had undoubtedly heard the comparisons before. "I think it's inherently a different show than 'Entourage,' but it does satiate that cool, young hip thing ... a group of friends kind of figuring things out," she said.
"You gotta make sure you're not pulling faces," she said. "'Cause I pull faces a lot. I'm like, Yeah look at me, I'm crazy!"
She instead suggested that actors and actresses need to "make sure you're kind of posing in your face a little." This is so the still shots will look flattering, though Chelsea Handler suggested that makes it even less like the real thing.

This week, I answer questions about Ghost Whisperer, How to Make It in America and Better Off Ted.
The series starred the soulful Lake Bell as Laura Daughtery, a marine biologist who encounters a strange creature on the ocean floor. She writes up her report, only to have it confiscated by the government in the name of national security.
Meanwhile, nerdy teen Miles (Carter Jenkins, whom I predict has a huge career ahead of him, though not if he keeps signing on for shows like the short-lived Viva Laughlin) stumbles across a strange egg on the beach and takes it home. Imagine his surprise when out hatches a weird amphibious creature that emits an even weirder electrical current.
With the announcement that the unaired pilot of Aquaman would become a downloadable video courtesy of iTunes I began to ponder all of the television shows that took place, or featured characters that lived, under the sea. After some extensive research (about five minutes) I discovered that there weren't many. So, as a public service to you, the dedicated TV Squad reader, I present the following list of underwater shows. Please put on your wet suits.
Surface: This on the list first because it was the most recent show telecast that featured underwater creatures. Only lasting one season on NBC (despite a strong fan base) the show starred Lake Bell as an oceanographer who is attacked by an unknown life-form in the Pacific Ocean. After that initial encounter, things go a little bonkers on planet Earth, including stars falling from the sky into the water, and unknown creatures washing up on public beaches. A cliffhanger episode was aired at the end of the first season, but was left up in the air due to the show's cancellation.
