Love Monkey

Tom Cavanagh Gets Lead in New ABC Drama

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 9th 2010 4:15PM
Tom CavanaghI'm rooting for Tom Cavanagh. 'Ed' not only entertained me, it changed my life (but that's a whole other post). He hasn't had much luck since leaving that show, TV series-wise anyway. 'Love Monkey' was a good show but short-lived, and 'Trust Me' was a huge disappointment and vanished after one season (he has fared better in key minor roles on shows like 'Eli Stone'). But now Cavanagh has been cast in another role, and it's completely different than his other lead roles.

According to Michael Ausiello, Cavanagh had landed the lead role in the pilot for the new ABC drama 'Edgar Floats.' He'll play a police psychologist who is also a bounty hunter, so I'm thinking it's will be sorta kinda a mix of things like 'CSI' and 'Castle' and 'House.' No, he last name won't be floats. The title actually refers to him being adrift in his personal life.

This makes me want to get out my 'Ed' videotapes, and pray once again that the show will be released on DVD at some point.

Rainn Wilson: action star - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted May 30th 2008 8:01AM

Rainn WIlson - The OfficeIt just has a ring to it, don't you think? I doubt that we'll see Rainn bulking up Stallone-style to save the world with a knife and his guile, but he did just land a role in Michael Bay's Transformers 2. It doesn't really get more action movie than that. Wilson will play a college professor to Shia LaBeouf's Sam. It will be interesting to see how much, if any, Schrute makes it into the character.

But wait, there's more. Fans of the gone but not forgotten Las Vegas will be happy to learn that Josh Duhamel will be returning for the sequel. And fans of ridiculously hot girls will be happy to know that FHM's Sexiest Woman In The World, Megan Fox, is also returning. A warning, that FHM link is safe for my workplace, but might not be for yours. If you can't wait for Bay to finish all of those CGI sequences to get your Rainn fix, you can also catch him this summer in The Rocker as a failed drummer who gets a second chance at fame. That one also features Teddy Geiger (Love Monkey), and the trailer is after the jump.

Medium: Head Games

by Brett Love, posted May 3rd 2007 11:00AM
Jason Priestley(S03E20) "Head Games" marks the beginning of the star studded, three part, season three finale. It was a good way to kick things off. There is a murder case for Devalos to prosecute, a new friend(?) for Allison, a new head doctor for Joe, visions that may or may not be correct, a new baby... just a lot going on. It's a good thing there are three parts to this.

Seeing as how the episode opened with Walter Paxton (Jason Priestley), let's start there. The dream within a dream open was very good. The head in the pantry came as quite a surprise, and led to a great Joe moment. He was so calm and forgiving when he woke up in the dream, but so frustrated and fed up when he woke up for real.

No more procedurals for CBS

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 20th 2006 12:28PM
jerichoCBS executives are looking to diversify their primetime line-up, and with good reason. From the three CSI franchises, to Without a Trace and Cold Case, the network has an awful lot of procedural dramas. Luckily, the execs recognize that and they've given themselves (and everyone else) an order to get creative. Already, they're working on a 1970s drama about wife swapping and the sexual revolution, a show about the women's movement, and a comedy from one of the Borat writers. The weirdest thing they have lined up is an American version of the U.K. hit, Viva Blackpool. Variety describes it as "a musical thriller featuring characters belting out top 40 songs." This fall season saw some unusual shows for CBS, including Jericho and Smith (which was already canceled). Last year's attempt to be different was Love Monkey, which was also canceled. CBS entertainment prez Nina Tassler says the hard part has been getting studios to pitch their edgier stuff to the network, which has always had a bit of a stuffy reputation.

It's like '90210' all over again!

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 19th 2006 11:03AM

The cast of 90210Maybe no one realized this yet. Or, maybe no one really cared. During the 2005-06 television season, seven alumni of FOX's Beverly Hills, 90210 have appeared or will appear in a regular series.

Do you doubt me? Do you think it isn't true? Do you think I have way too much time on my hands? Well, the last may be true, but that's not the point.

Click on, dear reader, for the proof that you seek.

CD Review: Teddy Geiger from Love Monkey

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 8th 2006 9:25AM
Teddy GeigerIt's really too bad that Love Monkey was canceled so quickly (though VH-1 is going to show the reruns and also unaired CBS eps later this month). It could have really acted as a springboard for Teddy Geiger, the 17 year old music wonder who co-starred as Kenny, the musician discovered by Tom Cavanagh's character. But it might not matter, because judging from this debut album, this kid's on his way to a major career.

tom cavanagh; love monkey; vh1Thank you, VH1!

The music network will air all eight episodes of CBS' cancelled Love Monkey beginning next month. That's five episodes we haven't seen, since CBS prematurely pulled it from the schedule (damn you, CBS!).

The first three episodes of Love Monkey (the ones we've already seen) will air back-to-back starting at 7 pm (ET) on April 11. The remaining episodes air weekly on Tuesdays at 9 pm (ET).

Kid from Love Monkey has a new CD

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 22nd 2006 8:01AM
love monkey teddy geigerTeddy Geiger, also known as 'Wayne' on the unfortunately-cancelled Love Monkey, has a new CD that is streaming on AOL Music. You remember Teddy, right? He was like John Mayer, except without all the weird facial expressions. During one episode, he and Tom Cavanagh shot his video to the song, "For You I Will", which is on his new album. I listened to it and it actually made me a little bit sad because I liked Love Monkey and I wish it would return. Oh well. Hopefully it'll make a star out of this kid.

No love lost for Love Monkey

by Richard Keller, posted Mar 20th 2006 11:28AM

Tom Cavanagh is a Love Monkey no
moreIt looks like Love Monkey, which was yanked off of the CBS Tuesday night schedule after only three episodes, is really and truly dead, according to E! Online.

According to the Watch With Kristin column the potential talks with UPN and then the CW did not pan out. In addition, it seems that the lead Love Monkey, Tom Cavanagh, is up for a new pilot, while Larenz Tate, who played Shooter, will be starring with Joe Pantoliano in a new CBS drama series called Waterfront.

With Pantoliano's luck in television lately (the cancelled CBS dramas Dr. Vegas, and The Handler) Mr. Tate may be looking for another series sooner than he thinks.

Jay Mohr's community service

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 10th 2006 1:04PM
jay mohrJay Mohr isn't going to be hosting the new season of Last Comic Standing, but he is coming back to NBC. This time he'll be starring in Community Service, a comedy about an arrogant New Yorker who travels to a small Ohio town to win back a girl. Unfortunately he doesn't win her affection, but he does wind up stuck in the town doing community service; hence the name of the show. Christopher Wiehl of Love Monkey plays a local cop and football hero. I'm going to file this under "wait and see." I like Jay Mohr, but he doesn't always fare well unless he's given the right show.

Things I Hate About TV: TV!

Love MonkeyYeah, I love TV and I write about it...but boy, sometimes I just hate it.

Case in point: last week sucked for television. You can have your Olympics, but it's also the week that we saw the last episode of Arrested Development, the cancellation of Love Monkey, and the (probable) cancellation of Surface. Ugh.

Love Monkey shelved after three episodes

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 9th 2006 1:40PM
Tom Cavanagh of Love MonkeyAccording to TVGuide.com, CBS has shelved Love Monkey after three episodes. It will be replaced by the new edition of The Amazing Race.

I've got to be honest with you; I'm a bit surprised about this. I'm not really sure what the ratings for the show have been, but they couldn't have been so bad that CBS decided to pull the plug so soon. Usually creative shows like this get a little more of a chance to develop and find an audience.

Yes, the show had some problems: the dialogue was sometimes mumbled to the point of incoherence, the narration was irritating, and it seemed like Tom Cavanagh's character could do no wrong, seemingly solving all his problems by the end of each episode (I mean, last week he proved that not only is he a great A&R guy, but a fine music video director and editor, too!). But the show had enough going for it that it deserved another chance. Maybe we'll see it after sweeps are over.
