'Ed' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Ed cast
Last week marked the 10th anniversary of 'Ed,' which certainly has a plum spot on our list of great shows that were canceled too soon. The fine dramedy that revolved around a barrister/bowling alley proprietor and his quirky fellow Stuckeyville-ians premiered on NBC on Oct. 8, 2000. And though its four seasons whizzed by all too quickly, we can't say we hardly knew ye, 'Ed' ... in fact, we knew ye, and loved ye, quite well.

ABC Replacing Almost Entire Cast of 'Edgar Floats' Pilot

tom cavanagh edgar floatsTom Cavanagh can't catch a break these days. First, his TNT series 'Trust Me' was yanked after one season, and now, ABC is replacing him as the lead in the upcoming drama pilot 'Edgar Floats.'

But Cavanagh isn't the only actor getting the boot from 'Life' creator Rand Ravich's upcoming character-driven procedural. The network has opted to replace almost everyone in the cast, including Alicia Witt, Derek Webster, Alex Solowitz and Raoul Trujillo, according to the Ausiello Files.

The only survivor? Robert "T-1000" Patrick, who can seemingly still dodge a bullet almost 20 years after 'Terminator 2.'

Tom Cavanagh Gets Lead in New ABC Drama

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 9th 2010 4:15PM
Tom CavanaghI'm rooting for Tom Cavanagh. 'Ed' not only entertained me, it changed my life (but that's a whole other post). He hasn't had much luck since leaving that show, TV series-wise anyway. 'Love Monkey' was a good show but short-lived, and 'Trust Me' was a huge disappointment and vanished after one season (he has fared better in key minor roles on shows like 'Eli Stone'). But now Cavanagh has been cast in another role, and it's completely different than his other lead roles.

According to Michael Ausiello, Cavanagh had landed the lead role in the pilot for the new ABC drama 'Edgar Floats.' He'll play a police psychologist who is also a bounty hunter, so I'm thinking it's will be sorta kinda a mix of things like 'CSI' and 'Castle' and 'House.' No, he last name won't be floats. The title actually refers to him being adrift in his personal life.

This makes me want to get out my 'Ed' videotapes, and pray once again that the show will be released on DVD at some point.

Get ready to feel sad after tonight's Scrubs

by Bob Sassone, posted May 6th 2009 4:20PM
This is probably an odd thing to say in a post at a TV blog, but you probably shouldn't look at the video below. It's not exactly a spoiler in the strictest sense, but it does show what will definitely be a very special moment in the history of Scrubs. It really does feel like a series finale, not a season finale, so I'm curious to see how they handle things if the show does return for another season.

Can Trust Me be saved?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 5th 2009 2:01PM
Trust MeI'll admit that I'm not too thrilled with TNT's new drama Trust Me yet. I want it to be much better than it is.

Of course, the key word there is "yet," because we all know that TV shows can get better as they go along in their first season, and even into their second. Unfortunately, we now live in a fast-paced TV world where shows have to pretty much be a hit from the get-go. Sure, shows on premium cable networks like HBO andf Showtime often get a longer honeymoon because there's less ratings pressure, but for the most part, shows either have to be a big hit early, show growth over the weeks (in general or in a certain demographic), or have to have a lot of "buzz" that cancels out (at least temporarily) any notions of a cancellation (like Gossip Girl).

But Trust Me? The ratings are in free fall.

Trust Me: Before and After (series premiere)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 26th 2009 11:01PM
Trust Me(S01E01) Have you ever had one of those shows that you wanted to truly love, because you've always liked the stars and you're into the premise of the show, but you end up only liking it? That's how it is with me and Trust Me.

Don't get me wrong, it's a pretty good show. An entertaining hour. But it's also an hour that is filled with so many obvious flaws that can't be overlooked.

Trust Me - An early look - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 22nd 2009 11:57AM
Trust Me
I will guess that a lot of people think that the reason why we have another cable drama set in the world of advertising is because of the success of AMC's Mad Men. And while the honors that the 60s-based show probably gave TNT execs an extra reason to look at Trust Me and put its production into overdrive, the show has actually been in the works for a while.

The comparisons are going to come though. The shows are very different. Judging from the first two episodes, they're not only different in setting (2009 Chicago vs. 1960 NYC) and tone (faster paced, with more obvious humor than Mad Men), they're not really going for anything deep or tackling any big issues.

J.D.'s brother returning to Scrubs

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 18th 2008 8:35AM
One of the greatest guest stars in Scrubs, nay, in television history will make his triumphant return soon.

Tom Cavangagh told TV Guide he will make another guest appearance on Scrubs as J.D.'s older brother Dan before the final season's hourglass runs out of mortality sand.

Cavanagh confirmed the news by saying the "chances are 100 percent" that he'll get to go back on the show this season. Cavanagh will also star in the TNT show Trust Me with Will & Grace star Eric McCormick and Scrubs regular Sarah Chalke.

Truth in Advertising is now called Trust Me

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 24th 2008 9:22AM
Trust MeCan two cable shows about the advertising world co-exist? Of course they can. With 12 Law and Orders, 9 CSIs, and 57 reality shows where sexy people live in a house, I think we can have two shows about advertising.

Trust Me is the new name of the TNT series Truth in Advertising. It stars Eric McCormack (Will and Grace) as Mason and Tom Cavanagh (Ed) as Connor, best friends who also run an ad agency. Unlike Mad Men, it's set in the present day. Also unlike Mad Men, it's set in Chicago. See? Two big differences right there.

Eli Stone: Heartbeat

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 4th 2008 1:11AM
Eli Stone(S01E10) The title of this episode was called "Heartbeat" because Eli's case involved a heart transplant -- two actually -- but "Reflections" might have been more appropo. Eli awakened in Nate's body and continued to find himself reliving his brother's life ten years before. And not on just any day, but the day that their dad died.

Overall, this was a particularly interesting episode because it seemed to lay the groundwork for where Eli Stone is going. Since it's likely that the show is going to be renewed -- deservedly so -- the prospect of Eli getting that surgery which may correct the aneurysm that's causing his visions, may not be happening after all.

Truth In Advertising is a go at TNT

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 1st 2008 4:23PM

TNT logoMy first thought when I heard about TNT's Truth In Advertising, which has just received the go ahead for 13 episodes, was "oh, they're just doing that because of the critical success of Mad Men." And who knows, that might be true, but this show by itself sounds awfully intriguing.

I mean, come on, look at this cast: Eric McCormack (Will and Grace), Tom Cavanagh (Ed, Eli Stone), Sarah Clarke (24), Monica Potter (Boston Legal), and Griffin Dunne (Law and Order: CI, 3 lbs.). And it's from the same people who bring us The Closer, so you know it's going to be of some quality. And it's really great to see Cavanagh and McCormack back on weekly TV again (oh, when oh when is Ed coming to DVD?).

Scrubs: My Inconvenient Truth

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 9th 2007 1:31AM
Scrubs: My Inconvenient Truth(S07E03) Based on the first two episodes, I was tentatively hopeful that the final season of Scrubs was going to be a good one. Now, after this third episode, my confidence in Bill Lawrence and company is almost fully restored after last season's awkwardness and inconsistency.

What worked this week? Well, having Tom Cavanagh come back to play J.D.'s older brother Dan always helps. But, like last week, we had a refreshing lack of insanity, punctuated by some funny situations that came out of the characters' personalities instead of zippy lines.
