MelrosePlace

Alyssa Milano Is 'Romantically Challenged'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 30th 2010 8:05PM
Alyssa MilanoNo, that's not an assumption on the actress' amorous ways, although I'm willing to put that assumption to the test if she's particularly irked by it.

The 'Who's the Boss,' 'Charmed' and 'Melrose Place' star has landed a new sitcom on ABC that can easily earn some steam since it's airing after 'Dancing with the Stars.'

'Romantically Challenged,' a sitcom about a recent divorcee looking for signs of life after marriage, will start airing on Monday, April 12 after 'DWTS.' The show is created by former 'Family Guy' writer Ricky Blitt and James Burrows has been tapped to direct it.

It sounds ridiculously simple and run-of-the-mill in terms of creativity, but sometimes the simplest ideas have the potential to catch fire. Does the show have the potential to be hot or will it go up in flames?

Dr. Mancini Slugs His Son on 'Melrose Place' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 17th 2010 7:46AM
Melrose Place, Dr. Mancini"He's not your son, Dad, he's mine." If you can wrap your head around that sentence, then you're probably loving 'Melrose Place' (Tue., 9PM ET on The CW).

"You will never get close to my child," said Dr. Mancini (to his son). "You will not talk to him. You will not write to him. As far as he's concerned, you don't exist." Uh, excuse us, Doc, but in case you weren't listening, you're not the kid's dad. Or who knows, maybe you are.

Then they proceed to have more words and a knock-down drag-out fight with shattered glass and all! Awesome.

Melrose PlaceIf you're going to drug a girl and leave her for dead, you best expect some consequences, dude. Like ending up in the hospital with multiple contusions. Take a hint from the folks at 'Melrose Place' (Tue., 9PM ET on The CW).

And what's worse is when the person you called a whore ends up being your doc. That "do no harm" thing? Not gonna happen, buddy. Even if what you said is true.

TV Show Promos That Are Better Than the Shows

by Daynah Burnett, posted Dec 7th 2009 2:00PM
If a show's promo ad looks good, you can reasonably expect the show to be equally awesome. Sounds fair enough, right?

Unfortunately, we've noticed that even the most unwatchable television with the most boring characters can manage to look great in 30-second snippets.

So, in honor of tonight's 'Gossip Girl' episode (oh, please. like Serena's actually going to die in a car crash), we've compiled a list of TV's worst shows with the best promos.

'Gossip Girl'
Having slunk its way down to pure unadulterated camp, it's surprising that Chuck and Blair haven't begun winking and nodding at the camera by now. Even more surprising is how their clever 'WTF' promo campaign is actually more entertaining than the show itself. OMG, indeed.

If Heather Locklear Can't Save 'Melrose Place,' What Can?

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 19th 2009 1:29PM
The CW was hoping the triumphant return of Heather Locklear, the eternal "special guest star" of the original 'Melrose Place,' would boost the alarmingly low ratings of the CW reboot. But, alas, it seems that not even a scheming vixen like Amanda Woodward can do much to help the struggling series.

The Live Feed
is reporting that Locklear's appearance on the tenth episode of 'Melrose Place,' which aired on Tuesday, had little to no effect on the ratings. In fact, the show was only up 14 percent from last week's ratings, which were at an all-time low for the series.

Heather Locklear was nominated for four-consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama) for her performance as Amanda Woodward, the ambitious and manipulative head of D&D Advertising, in the original 'Melrose Place.' The series ran for seven seasons on Fox from 1992-1999.

What to Watch: November 16 - 22

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 16th 2009 2:00AM


Melrose Place (Wednesday, November 18, 10 pm, Global/CW)

From the sweeps guest-star pool, the new 'Melrose' has reeled in a mighty big fish. Heather Locklear reprises her role as Amanda Woodward tonight, and she starts things off by walking into her agency and axing half the staff, including Caleb. I want to stand up and cheer just writing about it. Basically, Locklear is gonna come in and run a clinic. Topics include scaring the crap out of employees, how to wear a mini skirt, and how not to get trapped on a sinking ship of a show.

TV Shows Most Likely to Be Canceled: We Made the Odds, Now Place Your Bets

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:11PM

It seems like just yesterday we were greeting the lineup of the 2009-2010 television season; every show was equal, and no show had a better chance at success than any other. What a difference a few weeks make, as now some series are already looking down the barrel of a shotgun, ready to be canceled with barely a few episodes out the gate. Television is a cutthroat world indeed -- here we look at the series that are currently on thin ice, and the odds that they'll come out the other side.

Don't agree with our odds? Let us know!

ABC:

'Ugly Betty'
It wasn't long ago that 'Ugly Betty' had its supporters in droves, proclaiming its brilliance to the heavens. Now, alas, the show seems to have been abandoned, allegedly returning this season only so it has enough episodes in the vault to qualify for syndication. Which it does, so there!
Odds of Cancellation: 2 to 1

The Simpsons vs. 'Melrose Place': Which Side Are You On?

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 3rd 2009 3:00PM
Ashlee SimpsonIt's the Simpsons (the family, not the Fox animated series) vs. 'Melrose Place' -- and it's starting to get ugly.

Very ugly.

The latest salvo: Today, an anonymous source from the show blasted Ashlee Simpson-Wentz on Fox411, claiming that "Ashlee was kicked off 'Melrose Place' because she was a total diva on set, late all the time, and deeply disliked by fellow cast members.''

Simpson-Wentz has been under fire all week. Yesterday, another anonymous 'Melrose'-er told US Mag that the show hired her "because they needed a good name to help create buzz but she was embarrassingly bad. Producers cut her down as much as possible.''

Straight Actors, Gay Characters: Our Faves

by Liane Bonin, posted Nov 2nd 2009 7:30PM
It's a good (or at least a slightly better) year to play gay on prime time TV, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

Eighteen regular characters on scripted TV are either gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, an increase of 2.6 percent over last season. Of course, not every character that is gay is played by someone who is. Here's a look at some of the straight guys who aren't afraid to play against personal preference and buck musty old stereotypes at the same time.

That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power. Admit it, we've all gone to bed at some point in our lives after watching something scary on TV, and we've pulled the covers up over our heads. It's not real, yet it has the power to make us afraid. Very afraid.
