Will Chynna Doing 'DWTS' Derail Album on 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 2:00AM
Chynna Phillips, 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'Wilson Phillips is one of the biggest musical acts of all time, so it's a big deal that they've decided to reunite for an album. 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On' (Sun., 9PM ET on TV Guide) is set to chronicle the creation of that album, but right away it hit a major hurdle when Chynna Phillips had to tell bandmates Carnie and Wendy Wilson that she'd agreed to be on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

She was surprised that they weren't as supportive of this "huge opportunity" for her. Carnie was concerned about the album they'd committed to do, while Wendy couldn't seem to get her jaw hinge to work. It was certainly a huge blow, but it might have gone over easier had Chynna told them that this was a huge opportunity for all of them.

Katie Cazorla Is Excited by All Her Celebrity Guests on 'Nail Files' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 3rd 2011 6:39AM
Lorenzo Lamas, 'Nail Files''Nail Files' (Tue., 10PM ET on TV Guide) is certainly a different foray into reality television. The series follows Hollywood nail salon owner Katie Cazorla, but she's not like most reality people in Hollywood.

During a special launch party, she is so charmingly giddy and excited about all of the celebrities who stop by, from Carnie Wilson to Lorenzo Lamas and even Erik Estrada. The show kept cutting to "talking head" clips of her clapping her hands and squealing in excitement.

It's kind of cute that she gets so star struck considering she works in Hollywood. We particularly got a kick out of her reaction when Lamas explained that his fiance had already heard of the place because she'd found out about it.

69 Percent of TV Guide Readers Won't Watch Leno

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 12th 2010 10:06AM
Internet polls are always a little squiffy when it comes to interpreting actual raw data. But if I were Jay Leno right now, my chin would be quivering right about now.

TV Guide conducted an online poll of their readers and 69 percent of the respondents said they used to watch Jay either on 'The Tonight Show' or his short-lived 'Jay Leno Show' but won't when he returns to the post local news time slot.

Another 15 percent said they would watch Jay in his new time slot, 12 percent said they never watched him in the first place and the remaining 4 percent were undecided.

Everyone Loves Ellen on 'Idol'

Ellen DeGeneres judges on American IdolJust about everyone seemed to love Ellen DeGeneres's debut on 'American Idol' this week, including viewers and fellow host Kara DioGuardi. TVWeek.com reports that ratings for Ellen's Tuesday night debut were up one percent versus last year's first episode in Hollywood (although they note that the first episode on Hollywood always gets a bump in ratings). The site also reported that 27.7 million people tuned in, the most viewers the show has had this season.

DioGuardi lauded Ellen's debut to TV Guide, explaining that Ellen "knows more about music than you think she does" and saying she was a good judge of talent who speaks to contestants "with kindness, but also had criticism in there."

How The Young and the Restless got Eric Braeden back

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 7th 2009 4:04PM
Sometimes it's true that all's well that ends well. And sometimes to reach that happy ending, arms are twisted, feelings are hurt, and bad blood is spilled. In the case of The Young and the Restless and actor Eric Braeden, there was a good deal of acrimony on both sides. The fact that Braeden is back in the fold now and he will continue as Victor Newman for the foreseeable future, doesn't obscure the fact that it was a nasty situation.

TV's highest paid stars, starting with Charlie Sheen

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 5th 2008 8:03AM
Charlie SheenOn Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen plays a vulgar playboy, a shallow guy who's more interested in booze, women and having a good time than being responsible and working hard. The role has earned him a couple of Emmy nominations and a lot of money. A lot of money. In fact, in a new poll from TV Guide, Charlie Sheen is the highest paid actor on TV, making $825,000 per episode; in a season of 23 shows, that comes out to nearly $20 million.

That's more than he could make in the movies, and unlike films, Charlie can keep on raking it in on Two and a Half Men for years. The show is a huge hit in syndication, so more episodes will simply mean more money down the road.

Right behind Charlie on the list is fellow CBS leading man, CSI's William Petersen. He's making $600,000 an episode. He's only doing ten episodes this season, but since he's also an executive producer on the series, he's probably making even more.

TV Squad Soap Report: Beth Ehlers reporting for duty to All My Children

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 16th 2008 8:32AM
logo tvsIf there's one thing about success in the entertainment business it's this: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. That means if something is working on another show, steal/borrow the idea. As I've pointed out before, the soaps are inspired by movies and TV shows all the time, including Ugly Betty and The Devil Wears Prada and 24 and anything else that the daytime dramas can adapt into the soap opera format.

The latest form of flattery will be on All My Children with the introduction of Beth Ehlers as a new character in Pine Valley, Lieutenant Taylor McBride, a U.S. Army vet who has recently been deployed in Iraq.

Comic-Con Countdown: Saturday, July 26th

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 16th 2008 8:02AM

Saturday will be just as busy as Friday at the San Diego Comic-ConSaturday -- a time of rest and relaxation. A time to put your feet up, grab a lemonade, open a book, and let the cool, summer breezes gently rock your hammock as a lazy July day passes. Of course, that's if you aren't attending the San Diego Comic-Con. Then, it's out of your bed, quick shower (if any), breakfast-on-the-go, and right back into the queues to see your particular favorites talking about their television shows.

Like Friday, Saturday at Comic-Con will be packed with television goodness. This is the day that many of the big guns come to play. Shows like The Office, Lost, Battlestar Galactica will be making appearances. They will be joined by newcomers Chuck, Dollhouse, and Pushing Daisies. There will even be an appearance by the recently single Sarah Silverman. There's also a good bit of television animation being featured, particularly by Nicktoons and B.E.T. Animation.

In order to make sure you get the most out of the money you paid to get into the convention, we here at TV Squad are providing you with a complete list of television-related panels for that day. If you are interested in seeing what else is going on July 25th you can review the official full schedule at the Comic-Con website. Remember, times and appearances are subject to change and seating in all event rooms is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Contrary to rumors, 24 will be 24 episodes next season

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 26th 2008 8:21AM
Keifer Sutherland with a 45There's been some scuttlebutt stirred up to suggest that next season's two-hour 24 prequel TV movie will be considered part of the 24 hours in Day 7, therefore leading some to think that there'll only be 22 episodes. But how could there only be 22 hours in a day, right? Well, TV being what it is, I'm sure they'd find a way to do two hours in one -- other shows do! -- but that won't be the case. There will be 24 hours, 24 episodes in the 2009 season of 24.

Part of the reason for all this confusion is an interview that actor Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty) gave to Premiere.com. Carlyle, who will be playing someone who'd been a mentor to Jack, said that the 24 TV movie, which is meant to cover what's happened since the end of Day 6 with the new Day 7, would apply to the Fox episode commitment. He told Premiere.com, "This is two hours in real time, and there'll then be 22 episodes."

Stump the King: Tim Russert

by Paul Goebel, posted Jun 23rd 2008 1:06PM

Tim RussertI'd like to begin this week's offering by adding my thoughts on the untimely death of Tim Russert. I didn't know him personally, so anything I could say about the man would pale in comparison to all the nice things his friends and co-workers have already said.

What I will say is that the irony of Russert dying on Father's Day weekend so soon after writing his book, Big Russ and Me (which chronicled his life with his father as well as his son Luke), is so thick that twenty years from now, it will be hard to believe that it happened the way that it did.

As a guy who rarely watches the news and gets most of my information from The Daily Show, I appreciated Russert's informative and entertaining style of reporting.

TidalTV launches TV-like online video service

by Brad Linder, posted Jun 11th 2008 3:02PM
TidalTV is a web-based video service. But it doesn't look anything like YouTube, Joost, or even Hulu. If anything, it looks like the service you get from your cable or satellite provider.

The TidalTV display is laid out like an electronic program guide with a video window in the corner. You can click on the video to bring up a full screen version. Or you can click on the program guide to flip channels. There's also an on-demand section if you don't want to watch the scheduled programming stream.

Steven Weber is getting Psyched

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 10th 2008 8:40AM
Steven WeberShawn Spencer's family is growing. First, there's his mother, Madeline, coming to Santa Barbara for a visit, in the personage of Cybill Shepherd. And now comes news that another major television star is coming on board for a guest role. Steven Weber will be appearing in an episode of Psych as Shawn's Uncle Jack.

Jack is Henry's brother, although I don't see a big resemblance between Corbin Bernsen and Steven Weber. However, if the character is more like Shawn, that will give Weber a chance to play it wild and wacky. Maybe he'll be like his Brian Hackett incarnation on Wings.

According the TV Guide, this Psych episode sounds sort of like a Raiders of the Lost Ark/National Treasure adventure. Uncle Jack comes to town in search of a treasure. He has a map to a hidden Spanish cache of goodies and enlists Shawn and Gus in his search. Now you just know that James Roday will be pulling out a bullwhip and Fedora.

Weber, by the way, is expected back on Brothers and Sisters next season as Sarah's part-time lover. When the show wrapped, their romance was still humming.

Michael Ausiello leaves TV Guide for Entertainment Weekly

by Joel Keller, posted May 28th 2008 4:20PM
Mike AusielloWe've been hearing rumblings, published and otherwise, that TV Guide was in trouble, especially the venerable print edition. Earlier this month, for instance, the title's new owner, Macrovision, took over and immediately announced its plans to keep the online version of the magazine and either sell or shutter the print version, which has been published since 1953.

So the following news might not be much of a surprise: Michael Ausiello, TVG's scoop and spoiler maven, is taking his perky writing style and massive Rolodex to Entertainment Weekly, where he'll write for the TV sections of both the magazine and website starting July 2.

Oh, and how did we find this out? Mike sent us (and probably hundreds of others) the press release announcing his arrival. Never said the guy wasn't good at self-promotion.
