Can 'Damages' Be Saved by DirecTV?

by Allyssa Lee, posted Apr 2nd 2010 2:24PM
Yes, it may be down for the count amid less-than-stellar ratings and no official word on its renewal. But FX's legal thriller 'Damages' may not be done just yet.

EW.com is reporting
that Sony is in talks with cable company DirecTV about teaming up to produce the fourth season of the critically-acclaimed and Emmy-winning drama.

If that is the case, DirecTV will share the cost of production for 'Damages'' upcoming season, just like it had done previously with NBC's 'Friday Night Lights,' another critically-acclaimed but ratings-challenged drama, according to the Ausiello Files report. And similar to its deal with 'Lights,' DirecTV will air the fourth season of 'Damages' on its 101 Network first, and then on the FX network at a later date.

Robert Culp on 'I Spy': Three Memorable Moments

by David Hofstede, posted Mar 25th 2010 9:00AM
Robert CulpBill Cosby received most of the accolades, including an Emmy Award, for his groundbreaking work on the action/espionage series 'I Spy.' However, it was co-star Robert Culp, who played Kelly Robinson opposite Cosby's Alexander Scott, who was the series' true MVP. Not only did Culp hold his own in the comedic banter that helped make 'I Spy' a hit that ran for three seasons, he also wrote several episodes that rank among the series' finest shows.

The dashing Culp, who also appeared in classic episodes of 'The Outer Limits' and 'Columbo,' and costarred in 'Greatest American Hero,' died yesterday at the age of 79. For those wishing to remember him in his signature role, here are three 'I Spy' episodes, also scripted by Culp, to get you started.

Happy Birthday, Victor Garber!

by Allyssa Lee, posted Mar 16th 2010 12:00PM
Pop culture fans might know him as the intriguingly bristly spy daddy Jack Bristow from 'Alias.' Or perhaps as the benevolent shipbuilder who warned Kate Winslet about the lifeboats in 'Titanic.' Or as the guy who took over Albert Finney's spot as Daddy Warbucks in that television version of the musical 'Annie.' Whatever your introduction to Victor Garber, you know that there is just something about the TV, movie and stage actor that is indelibly irresistible. Victor Garber is like the acting version of bacon: he has a tendency to make everything he's in that much better. He acts. He sings. He kicks some major ass. And what's more, he looks great doing it.

He of the dulcet singing voice, boyish good looks and dashing demeanor is turning an august 61 years old today, and we can think of no better way to celebrate Victor Garber than by having our own Victor Garber appreciation day.

Victor Garber, how do we adore thee? Let us count the ways.

'Dancing With the Stars': Who Waltzes Away With a Win?

Pamela AndersonIt's that time again. The celebrities have been gathered from across the sports and entertainment spectrum to show off their ballroom skills (or lack thereof) on season 10 of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., March 22, 8PM ET on ABC).

This year, there aren't any outsized fan bases among the participants, as there was last season with Donny Osmond, who took home the show's mirror-ball trophy over competition that was a little more polished on the dance floor. Hopefully, that means the results will be decided more by dance ability than popularity. Here's how we rank the season 10 contestants and their odds of winning:

Caite Upton and Brent Horne Amazing RaceTwo teams are already gone, and nine teams are still running around the world in 'The Amazing Race 16.'

by David Hofstede, posted Feb 24th 2010 4:30PM
Charlie's angelsFor classic TV fans, there's nothing like owning every episode of a beloved series on DVD. However, sometimes the wait to complete the run of a favorite show is longer than anticipated. And sometimes, sadly, it doesn't happen at all.

New season releases on these 10 shows have been missing for a long time, but if you're a fan don't give up hope. Both 'Leave it to Beaver' and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' are now back on track after years of non-activity, so anything is possible.
