Gilbert Gottfried on ''Til Death' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Apr 19th 2010 1:20AM
Gilbert Gottfried on ''Til Death'Gilbert Gottfried is perhaps best known as "that comedian with the annoying voice." On the most recent episode of ''Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox), Gottfried uses that voice to excellent effect. He barges into Joy's (Joely Fisher's) home, and begins a conversation involving breast size and, well, male member size. Good stuff!

That Was Quick: FOX Pulls 'Sons of Tuscon'

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 5th 2010 6:25PM
Sons of Tucson From the very first commercials for Fox's 'Sons of Tucson,' it was hard to imagine the show lasting. It looked like a vehicle designed for Jack Black that fell in Tyler Labine's lap - three kids hire a bearded, chubby slacker to pose as their dad when their real father goes to prison. Labine even says, in the debut episode, that he is going to "rock it hard."

It was your standard non-standard family unit (undoubtedly with heart) that has been the bread and butter of sitcoms for decades. Precocious kids, a funny guy with a bit of a beer tummy - how could it fail?

The TV Squad Podcast: Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref,' 'DWTS,' March Madness, and More!

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 25th 2010 5:11PM
Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref'After a few stops and starts, we finally managed to get Tom Papa, host of NBC's 'The Marriage Ref,' to join us on the podcast. He talks with Jason Hughes, Danny Gallagher and me about the new show, who his favorite couple has been so far, managing a panel with Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Madonna, and exactly what he thought of the Leno-Conan debacle that gave his show that Thursday at 10PM ET opening.

Tom joins us about 18 minutes into the podcast and stays with us for about 25 minutes. Before and after, Jason, Danny and I talk about:
  • How March Madness messes with our DVRs and why networks can't send out live DVR updates,
  • The new cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' and the importance of Pam Anderson's breasts this season,
  • Two shows that are finally getting killed off: one good ('Scrubs') one not so good (''Til Death'). We also talk about what shows have been on the "Can't Kill 'Em" list in recent years.
  • Picks of the week, and more.

Run time is 1:13:08.

You can listen to the podcast below, or download from here or by subscribing to our RSS podcast feed. It is also available via iTunes. Feel free to leave us feedback in the comments or drop us a line at tvsquadpodcast [at] gmail [dot] com.

As always, the music at the beginning and end of the podcast is "Life" by Justin Trawick.

'Til Death' Is Really, Really Over

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 24th 2010 9:50AM
'Til DeathFox has confirmed some news that has been in the cards for a while: ''Til Death' has been cancelled after four seasons. Like so many other shows before it (*cough*cough* 'According To Jim'), it has avoided the axe for much longer than anticipated. ''Til Death' was even given an honor usually given to only science fiction on Fox: the Friday Night Death Slot.

Actually, by the time the show even got to its fourth season, the only consistent part of it was Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Eddie Kaye Thomas and Kat Foster, the next door newlywed couple that was half of the central premise of the original show, weren't even there anymore.

The best part of the Variety article was Brad Garrett's response to the situation. When they mention the showing having a 0.4 rating, he replied, "Give me a month and I'll take it to a zero." The network responded with dead silence. Those people have no sense of humor.

Poor Brad. At least he has those 7-Up commercials to keep him going.

''Til Death' Canceled

'Til Death''Til Death' is, well, dead.

According to Variety, Fox has officially pulled the plug on the comedy series after a lifespan of four seasons.

Star Brad Garrett confirmed the news earlier today to Zap2It, saying, "The other night, we got an 0.8 [rating]. Once your mom stops watching, you're an 0.4. The network said, 'What do you suggest?' I said, 'If you give me one more month, I can take you to a zero.' And there was dead silence."

On Sunday, Fox aired two episodes of ''Til Death,' which took in just 2.5 million and 3.3 million viewers, respectively.

Brad Pitt Proposes to Joy on 'Til Death' (VIDEO)

Til Death, Brad PittA porn mustache on Brad Pitt in real life is just ... ugh (though, let's face it, it's better than that Allen Ginsberg beard he's been sporting). But even worse when he's a cartoon character.

That's just what we got on 'Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox), when an animated Pitt proposed to an animated Joy. His kids were there, but no sign of Angelina Jolie. Just as well. She probably would have pulled a 'Lara Croft' and kicked Joy's ass. Hmmm ...

Eddie Encounters an Almost Naked Doug on 'Til Death' (VIDEO)

Til Death, Naked DougIf you've had a roommate, chances are good you've had this happen. You run into the person getting a snack, and he or she is practically naked.

Eddie said it best when encountering Doug getting a midnight snack on 'Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox). "Wow. So much of you, so close to my food."

And you've gotta hand it to Timm Sharp for baring almost all. That takes you-know-what.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Twelve shows a'stinkin'!

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 12th 2009 10:00AM
HeroesOn the twelfth day of Festivus, TV gave to me ... twelve shows a'stinkin'!

Being the endless wasteland that it is, television has no shortage of bad product. Mind you, "bad" is always a matter of opinion. This year saw the end of According to Jim after eight years of decent ratings while in terms of quality it lasted about seven years too long. What follows is my own opinion and at the end of each item in the list, I will quote everybody's favorite critic, Jay Sherman.

12. Heroes – This show was great in the first season, then with only brief glimpses of greatness in the later seasons, the writers and the network proceeded to dump it in the trash, rub it around some sewage and finally make it have a one night stand with Andy Dick. IT STINKS!

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

'Til Death: The new According to Jim?

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 28th 2009 7:01PM
Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher of 'Til DeathEvery year, there's a show that's on the top of viewers' "You mean that's still on the air?" list. Whether the show was good or not, it was one that hung on in obscurity for years and years, getting just enough of an audience to keep it going. You know the shows I'm talking about: The Facts of Life. Wings. Yes, Dear. Matlock.Just Shoot Me. George Lopez. King of the Hill. JAG. Heck, even the great Scrubs was at the top of this list for many people for awhile (still might be for some).

But for the last five years or so, the reigning champ of that list was According to Jim, both because of its inexplicable longevity and its questionable quality. Now, with Jim Belushi's vanity project finally gone, it looks like another show has taken its place: FOX's 'Til Death.

The network just doesn't want to let the show die. Every time the show is in a low-rated slot, the network moves it to one that's higher-profile in an attempt to boost ratings. Case in point: the Brad Garrett sitcom will be replacing Brothers on Sundays at 7, starting January 10, after football's regular season is over.

FOX hopes The Rednecks & Romeos will be the next That '70s Show

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 3rd 2009 2:04PM
That '70s ShowFOX has only two live action comedies on their fall slate: 'Til Death and Brothers. As someone who's seen Brothers, I can see why they'd be concerned that this isn't going to be enough. So, if you're FOX and you haven't had a good long-running comedy hit since That '70s Show, what do you do? Find the guys who worked on that and see what the've been up to, of course.

Co-creator and executive producer Mark Brazill has been developing a new multi-camera comedy. "We'll take it!" It's just a spec script right now? "Okay, find the right cast and -- we'll take it!"

Like '70s, The Rednecks & Romeos is a coming-of-age comedy. Based somewhat on Brazill's own experiences, it's about a family trying to get by after the father loses his dealership business and the family home to bankruptcy. That may hit pretty close to home for a lot of people these days.

Could My Name Is Earl jump to Fox?

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 3rd 2009 9:05AM
my name is earl cast

According to industry scuttlebutt, My Name Is Earl is on the ropes and at risk of being canceled by NBC. Nikki Finke is reporting that it's practically a done deal at NBC, but Earl could be moving to Fox.

It's not just the lousy Nielsen ratings that have done the shaggy-dog sitcom in, it's also the rising production costs. NBC has an entire line-up that's bleeding in the ratings, so surgery is required. It is very likely that Earl will get the ax.
