Alyssa Milano Says Growing Up on TV Was 'Humiliating' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 26th 2010 4:00PM
Dealing with puberty is difficult enough, but just imagine what it must be like to grow into adulthood on national television. Alyssa Milano began to develop into a woman while starring on 'Who's the Boss?' and the show's writers used this in an embarrassing episode involving her character's first training bra, she said on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

"At the time, [it] was so humiliating, because I started developing as little girls tend to do and the writers wrote it into the show. It's hard enough going through puberty let alone doing it on television. Then, after that episode aired -- I was, like, 12 -- anytime I got recognized ... people would always comment." Milano said.

'Romantically Challenged' Debut Is Challenged in Ratings

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 20th 2010 4:00PM
Romance isn't the only thing that's proving challenging for ABC's new sitcom 'Romantically Challenged.' Apparently, its ratings are facing an uphill battle, too.

According to the Live Feed, the Alyssa Milano vehicle delivered "average" ratings on its Monday night debut, with a reasonable 11.6 million watchers and 3.1 in the adult demo. For any other timeslot, the bow would likely have been seen as a success, but with an epic lead-in from 'Dancing With the Stars' (which captured 20.8 million viewers and a 4.7 share), plus a couple minutes worth of overrun from the reality hit which likely boosted the numbers from 'Challenged,' the midseason sitcom could be in trouble before it's even begun.

(S01E01) Alyssa Milano is one of those actresses certain segments of the population gravitate to. Her latest project brings her back to her sitcom roots, in more ways than one. From the first scenes in the restaurant the "gang" hangs out in, 'Romantically Challenged' had all the trappings of an old school buddy sitcom.

What to Watch: April 19

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 19th 2010 6:00AM
'Romantically Challenged' (9:30PM, ABC) series premiere
Former 'Family Guy' writer Ricky Blitt created it, Emmy winner James Burrows directed the pilot and 'Who's the Boss?' and 'Charmed' star Alyssa Milano returns to the tube in this comedy, about a newly-single mom and attorney who's more than a little nervous about re-entering the dating scene after her divorce. Rebecca (Milano), in fact, hasn't dated "since Clinton was in office," and the fact that she's the mother of a 15-year-old son doesn't make finding a new love match any easier. Nor does her younger sister, Lisa, a sweet, protective woman who is way more sexually adventurous than Rebecca. Lisa's definition of making it two second base: a threesome.

Alyssa Milano On Returning to TV, Loving Twitter & Being 'Romantically Challenged'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 12th 2010 9:00AM
Alyssa Milano, 'Romantically Challenged'Alyssa Milano is no stranger to network television. She practically grew up before our eyes on 'Who's the Boss?,' proved how naughty she could be on 'Melrose Place,' was bewitching on 'Charmed' and played Earl's crazy third wife on 'My Name is Earl.'

Now she's trying her hand at romantic comedy ... but don't expect 'Bachelor'-style dream dates or lovey-dovey relationships on 'Romantically Challenged' (premieres Mon., April 19, 9:32PM ET on ABC). Milano plays Rebecca, a recently divorced, dating-impaired 30-something with a group of friends as tragically unlucky in love as she is.

AOL TV talked to the multifaceted Milano about returning to TV, her iconic roles, Twitter, baseball and why she says that, before marriage, she was "the worst dater on the planet."

The Show Girl Talks Love with Alyssa Milano, Flashbacks with Sally Field & More (VIDEO)

Very few TV freebies could get me to devote a chunk of my weekly talk time to them ... but a personalized Maggie Furlong Adventure Doll? You have to see her in action to believe it. (Thanks CMT's Adventure Country!)

I also talk with 'Romantically Challenged' star Alyssa Milano about which fellow Twitter-happy ABC star she wants as her TV ex-husband on the new show. Then I hit the set of 'Brothers & Sisters' during their big flashback episode to catch up with the show's matriarch, Sally Field. Her comments on the young Walkers, their secrets and her own memories of the '80s will crack you up.

Another Delay for Alyssa Milano and 'Romantically Challenged'

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 7th 2010 8:00AM
Alyssa Milano's new series, 'Romantically Challenged' is bumped down to an April 19th premiereIt must be frustrating for stars when their new shows, which are supposed to premiere at a certain date, keep getting pushed back. Not only does that keep their professional lives on hold, but it probably gives them a feeling that the networks are not too thrilled with their product.

Such is the case with Alyssa Milano's new ABC comedy 'Romantically Challenged.' Previously given the premiere date of next Monday, April 12th, the show has been moved back a week to April 19th. The most likely reason for the change is for the show's lead-in -- 'Dancing With the Stars' -- to squeeze in another two-hour stint to pump up their ratings. In a counter-opinion, Alyssa gave this as the reason for the date switch on her Twitter account: "No freakin' clue."

As a former teenager who crushed (all right, still crushes) on Milano, my opinion is probably jaded. Nevertheless, she should be given a chance to succeed or fail. Here's hoping ABC is priming her for success rather than cutting their losses where they can.

Alyssa Milano Is 'Romantically Challenged'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 30th 2010 8:05PM
Alyssa MilanoNo, that's not an assumption on the actress' amorous ways, although I'm willing to put that assumption to the test if she's particularly irked by it.

The 'Who's the Boss,' 'Charmed' and 'Melrose Place' star has landed a new sitcom on ABC that can easily earn some steam since it's airing after 'Dancing with the Stars.'

'Romantically Challenged,' a sitcom about a recent divorcee looking for signs of life after marriage, will start airing on Monday, April 12 after 'DWTS.' The show is created by former 'Family Guy' writer Ricky Blitt and James Burrows has been tapped to direct it.

It sounds ridiculously simple and run-of-the-mill in terms of creativity, but sometimes the simplest ideas have the potential to catch fire. Does the show have the potential to be hot or will it go up in flames?
