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

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 9th 2010 9:00AM
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.

The Show Girl On 'Future Food,' 'United States of Tara' & 'Lost' Geeks (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 26th 2010 9:00AM
Future FoodI'm addicted to cooking shows, but my new fave is so much more than just food and kitchen skills -- 'Future Food' is all about changing the way we approach eating through molecular gastronomy. It's smart, it's fun, it's educational and, yes, it'll make your stomach growl. What more can you ask for?

This week, I also dive a little deeper into two other must-watch shows with scoop on new alters for 'United States of Tara''s second season, straight from star Toni Collette, and a celebrity spewing about why she loves 'Lost' almost as much as I do.

The Show Girl Talks 'Justified,' 'Minute To Win It' & 'All My Children' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 12th 2010 9:00AM
What do you get when you cross Timothy Olyphant and a supremely cool cowboy cop role? 'Justified,' FX's new drama. I get the scoop on costars (like Walton Goggins from 'The Shield') and dream guest stars (is Rose Byrne busy?) from Olyphant himself.

I also try to keep up with mile-a-minute 'Minute To Win It' host Guy Fieri, who beat me at foosball, then swiftly branded me with the nickname Foosinator. If you think he's funny on 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,' just wait till you see him host a game show. Bonus for soap opera fans: I visit Pine Valley to act up with Erica Kane, a.k.a. 'All My Children' star Susan Lucci.

Michael Cudlitz, 'Southland''Curb Your Enthusiasm' is the best therapy ever. No matter how bad your day was or what horrible things you might've done, Larry David can always make you feel like a saint. And now, the show is in syndication -- hooray! Star Cheryl Hines dishes about her all-time favorite episodes.

I also hit the colorful 'Yo Gabba Gabba!' set to catch up with their regular art guru, Mark Mothersbaugh, who'll actually be performing with his band Devo on the show this season. Then I go undercover with 'Southland' star Michael Cudlitz on some unofficial police business -- a.k.a. kicking in doors and blowing things up -- and get scoop on his character's love life.

Anthony Bourdain Has 'No Reservations' About Sandra Lee, Bradley Cooper Or His Kitchen Skills

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 8th 2010 6:45PM
Anthony Bourdain, 'No Reservations'Anthony Bourdain isn't trying to get people to like him, and that's exactly why we adore him.

As host of Travel Channel's 'No Reservations,' we've seen Tony eat anything and everything on his culinary adventures -- and, at least once an episode, we're also treated to his usually curse-laced rants. Consider it the sparkly candle on top of an already amazing Kwanzaa cake. (More on that in a bit ...)

We caught up with the globetrotting foodie -- who'll have Bill Murray on the show's Hudson Valley episode tonight (Mon., Feb. 8, 10PM ET) -- to hear more about his biggest food loves, his problems with Bradley Cooper and why a simple 'Semi-Homemade' cake on TV haunts his dreams.

RuPaul's Drag RaceYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I talk to the Queen of the Internet, Cindy Margolis, and the Queen of ... well, queens, RuPaul. Both ladies are working it on reality TV -- the '90s pinup on dating show 'Seducing Cindy,' and the '90s 'Supermodel' songstress on season 2 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' Amazing.

To bring the show back to reality a bit, I also dig in to 'Lost.' (Hey -- I didn't say which reality.) If you haven't heard, we've got a brand spankin' new weekly show dedicated to the addictive, obsessive show I call my #1 favorite. And we're taking fan questions starting ... now.

Regina KingYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

In honor of 'Southland''s glorious return to our TVs (Tue., 10PM ET on TNT), I got star Regina King's take on whether or not her character, Det. Lydia Adams, should hook up with Ben McKenzie's character, Det. Ben Sherman. The words "cutie" and "animalistic" are part of her answer ... tell me you're not curious.

I also have some behind-the-scenes fun with 'Human Target' star Mark Valley, and share a few of my Golden Globe predictions. (Yay, 'Modern Family'! Sorry 'Cougar Town.')

Gordon RamsayYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

While everyone else is worried about being on Santa's "good" list this holiday season, I'm much more interested in the bad boys of TV. This week, I've got fun stuff from three of the baddest, starting with 'Californication' star David Duchovny, who dishes about the show's season finale (Sun., Dec. 13, 10PM ET on Showtime) and makes fun of Twitter.

I also have the scoop on Gordon Ramsay new show 'Cookalong Live' (Tues., Dec. 15, 9PM ET on Fox), and talk a little trash with the champ of TLC's latest reality show 'BBQ Pitmasters.'
