It seems like forever since the last episode of 'Army Wives' was on Lifetime. It was actually August 2010, but with characters as strong and interesting as those in the "tribe," it didn't take long to get right back into the drama of their lives.

In fact, after the opening 'catch-up' scene at Denise's, the show jumped right back into the action with the promise of an exciting year ahead.

'Army Wives' Ends Season 4 on a High Note, But Was It the Last?

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 24th 2010 5:00PM
army_wives_lifetime_castOn Sunday night, 'Army Wives' fourth season came to a finish and the ratings were superb. The finale of Lifetime's top drama was the most watched episode of the season, drawing 3.9 million viewers, with a 3.0 in household ratings.

It's not surprising that the show did so well in the ratings, since 'Army Wives' is coming off one of its best seasons. But there is one nagging question for fans since Lifetime has yet to announce a fifth season pick-up: was this a series finale?

The question is a legitimate one since for the first time in the show's history, there was no major cliffhanger ending. No explosion at the Hump Bar, no lingering health concerns, no soldiers missing in action for any member of the tribe. In fact, if you look at the couples individually, things look pretty good for the 'Army Wives' families.

Mark GordonVeteran TV producer Mark Gordon, an executive producer on shows such as 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Criminal Minds' and 'Private Practice,' has been accused of and formally apologized for using racial slurs at a table read for the spin-off of Lifetime's 'Army Wives.'

He was reported to Lifetime's human resources department, which then reported him to ABC Studios.

Soldiers Sing Army Lullaby on 'Army Wives' (VIDEO)

Army Song Lullaby on 'Army Wives'On 'Army Wives' (Sun., 10PM ET on LIFETIME), Colonel Frank Sherwood kindly volunteered to watch Sarah Elizabeth when Roland and Joan's babysitter backed out at the last minute. But he couldn't get her to sleep. Time to call in reinforcements: Major General Michael Holden.

[Spoiler alert.]


"The only thing I can remember soothing the boy was her singing," said Michael. "Singing," said a skeptical Frank. But he launched (hesitantly) into the Army fight song: "First to fight for the right / And to build the nation's might / And the army goes rolling along..."

Michael soon joined in. As the two burly soldiers sang the patriotic duet for the little tyke, it did the trick.

Lifetime Eyeing 'Army Wives' Spinoff

by Audrey Fine, posted May 10th 2010 1:00PM
Variety has reported that Lifetime is looking to spin off its successful 'Army Wives' drama. The project, which is still in the nascent stages of development, will be created by 'Wives' writers, Bruce Zimmerman and T.D. Mitchell, and will focus on Brigid Brannagh's character, Pamela Moran.

The new series would position Pamela as divorced from Chase, her elite "Delta Force" husband, and re-joining the ranks of her old Charleston, S.C. police force.

Last September, Lifetime posted a "Which 'Wife' Should Get a Spin Off'" thread on its message boards. Pamela and Sally Pressman's single mom/bartender "Roxy," were cited most often as the characters viewers would like to see on a new show. Does this mean Roxy will be next? Stay tuned, true believers.

'Army Wives'' 4th season had a strong debut in April and, over the last two seasons, was the highest-rated original drama on basic cable within the coveted women 18-49 demographic.

Seven Shows That Could Use a Time Jump

by Rich Keller, posted May 3rd 2010 2:03PM
'Heroes' is one of seven shows that could use a time jumpOver the last few seasons a number of shows -- 'One Tree Hill,' 'Desperate Housewives,' 'Lost' -- have used the concept of time jumping to generate public interest and open up new storylines. Now, 'Brothers & Sisters' will be making a small time jump between this season and next. Money was on this show, 'Gossip Girl,' or 'Phineas and Ferb.' to make the jump.

This, as usual, got us to thinking of other currently running programs that could use a time shift to freshen them up. Subsequently, this led us to put our thoughts down on the hyperlinked paged for debate and comment. After the jump are but a few examples and how a time jump could benefit them.

New TV on DVD Releases This Week

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 8th 2010 6:04PM
Stargate SGUHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

'Studio One' is one of those shows I wasn't sure they'd ever release on DVD. Sure, it's an important, classic shows, but I wondered if they'd bother releasing them and if some of the tapes were erased or in horrible condition. There was a big 'Studio One' set released last year, and this week we have 'Twelve Angry Men' and the Rod Serling dramas in separate sets. Really great stuff, and well worth getting if you're into TV history.

Or you could buy season one of 'Gary Unmarried.'

  • 'Army Wives' - Season 3
  • 'Fraggle Rock' - Wembley's Egg Surprise
  • 'Gary Unmarried' - Season 1
  • 'The Guild' - Season 3
  • 'JAG' - The Final Season
