Cee Lo Green Makes 'Parenthood' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 19th 2011 3:00PM
It was an NBC crossover last night on 'Parenthood,' (Tues., 10PM ET on NBC) as 'The Voice' judge Cee-Lo Green stopped by Adam and Crosby's makeshift music studio to record a song for a 60s tribute album. The guys had had recruited Cee Lo with the history of the place, touting the fact that Janis herself, along with Jerry Garcia, had recorded there, and scrambled to get the downstairs studio finished in time for the session.

But once they got started, Cee Lo didn't like how it was sounding and left, leaving Crosby and Adam to think he was irritated with Adam's goofy dance moves or the studio's sound quality. But just when they were down in the dumps, Cee Lo came back to give it another shot, pledging to try to sound less like Janis and do the song in his own style. It worked, and Adam and Crosby finished the first job in the new chapter of their "lemonade stand."

'Parenthood' Premiere: Haddie Turns Out to Be a Bad Influence on Alex (VIDEO)

['Parenthood' S03/E01 -- 'I Don't Want to do This Without You']

When your daughter's dating a recovering alcoholic, as Haddie is on 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC), you might fear that he'd be a bad influence on her. Sure, he's in recovery, but that's no guarantee he won't relapse, or that some elements from that darker side of his life won't impact her.

And while Haddie's been rebelling a lot more of late, she's still supposed to be the good girl who makes good decision. Luckily, Alex (Michael B. Jordan) seems like a solid guy who really cares about her. More importantly, he's taking his sobriety very seriously.

Unfortunately, that makes it even harder when he's dating a high school senior who wants to go out partying where there's a lot of drinking ... and maybe do some drinking herself.

Erika Christensen on Her 'Parenthood' Adoption Journey & Being a Braverman

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 13th 2011 12:00PM
Erika ChristensenTaking part in the wild family dinners that are a constant staple on NBC's 'Parenthood' could be intimidating to some, but not Erika Christensen.

The 29-year-old actress, who plays straitlaced lawyer Julia Braverman-Graham on the NBC drama, has three brothers and a sister-in-law and intimately understands the complicated dynamics that come with growing up in a big family.

"To me, it just feels kind of comfortable, this group that inherently has ties that won't really break," she told AOL TV in advance of 'Parenthood''s third season premiere (Tue., Sept. 13, 10PM ET on NBC). "The underlying love is really nice because you know if you have a spat, it doesn't matter. I feel the same way about the characters and the actors [on 'Parenthood'] -- we all know we're in it for the long haul, so any differences we may have, we know that we're going to get through them somehow. You just have to."

Actually, Christensen and her costars are close both literally and figuratively -- many of them live within two miles of one another, and she's known Dax Shepard, who plays her brother Crosby, for a decade.

Below, Christensen shares with AOL TV what those crazy Braverman dinners are actually like, which guest star the 'Parenthood' cast is most excited to welcome back and what's in store for Julia and her husband, Joel, as they attempt to adopt a baby.

She thought that might be too much for the Friday morning audience on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).
