"I want you to know, it's a real honor having met you, and something else I didn't tell you is my dad was an alcoholic," Arquilla said tearfully. "It ruined his life. It made it hard on me, and we never reconciled, but ... I did reconcile. I reconciled this week with him, and you're the guy that allowed me to do that ... I'll be forever grateful."

(S05E10) You know what? I'm just going to ignore that crazy "Michael kinda-sorta-kidnapping Meredith" subplot tonight. I'm going to view the failed intervention and the ridiculous chase in the parking lot the same way my wife views my back hair: disgusting and useless, but not a deal-breaker. My wife's willing blindness has saved our marriage; I hope by following her lead, I'll save this review. You people don't want to hear me rant (again) about how silly/unbelievable/prosecutable Michael is anyway.
If you excise those ten minutes, you're left with a fairly good episode that ends with, perhaps, the strongest closing stinger in the show's recent memory (and that's saying something, considering that The Office is probably the best show on TV when it comes to abrupt, last-second mood changes).
The season premiere will profile Chad, a gifted athlete who suffers from an addiction to crack cocaine. Chad, once a part of Lance Armstrong's cycling team, now spends his days panhandling, abusing drugs, and drinking. Also on the slate for later this season is Intervention: After Treatment. This one-hour special will feature a panel of past addicts brought together in a Los Angeles studio for a candid discussion about how the intervention changed their lives.
Intervention returns on Monday June 16th at 9 pm. ET/PT on A&E.
Of course, that's what Time Warner, HBO's (and our) parent company, said in a statement. But according to a statement from Albrecht, the resignation was tendered at the request of his TW bosses. Right after the incident happened, Albrecht was supposed to take a leave of absence so he can continue alcohol treatments and work with AA that he had discontinued, but other incidents involving assaults against women were revealed, prompting TW to ask for the executive's resignation.
The network's COO, Bill Nelson, will assume Albrecht's duties on an interim basis until a successor is found. Albrecht had been with the network since 1985.
During his monologue last night, Late, Late Show host Craig Ferguson talked about all the craziness that Britney Spears has been going through lately (wearing no panties, shaving her head, in and out of rehab - maybe), but he refused to dump on her about it all. He talked about his own bout with alcoholism, and said that even though there's no real evidence that Spears has any alcohol/drug problem, "she clearly needs help."
Ferguson does a great monlogue, because it's very chatty and seems to be a combination of scripted material and just off-the-cuff talking with the audience, and when he talks about his own problems it takes the late-night monlogue to a different level that others don't have. More Jack Parr than Jay Leno.
For the record, we here at TV Squad still feel it's our duty to dump on Ms. Spears, when and if she deserves it.
So, what do you think? Should Rob Lowe's character, Senator Dreamy McCallister, be excused for voting against gay marriage when the measure wasn't going to pass anyway? Was it okay for him not to make a stand, when he had an education measure he wanted to pass? I'm going to have to say no. He admits that he regrets the vote, but he also wanted Kitty to come and work for him. And he is good at getting what he wants. But low and behold, he has a cute gay brother. Oh please no. Oh please no.
It's titled Prime Suspect: The Final Act and chronicles detective Jane Tennison's last case before retirement (she's almost 60 now), involving the search for a missing 14 year-old girl, a case that's a lot more complex than she first realizes. It also involves Tennison's heavy drinking and blackouts and sadness. OK, so it's not the most uplifting drama.
Actually, Helen Mirren has always given fantastic performances in these shows (she has won an Emmy for Best Actress and the show itself has won three Emmys), and Goodman says that this one is no exception. The state of Florida even figures into this last episode.
If Without a Trace is so realistic, maybe it'll win something for that teen sex orgy scene.
Oprah opened her show by apologizing to viewers for trusting Frey so blindly that she called up Larry King when he was defending his lies book and voiced her support for him. To Frey's face, she said, "I really feel duped." Then, she proceeded to take him down. Inch by inch. God, I love this woman.
