Mario Batali May Know More About 'Suburgatory' Than Cheryl Hines (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 7th 2011 7:10PM
Mario Batali may be a 'Suburgatory' super-fan. With star Cheryl Hines a guest on 'The Chew' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) the celebrity chef gushed about how much he's enjoying the absurdist suburban comedy, and updated Hines on some tune-in info about her own show that even she wasn't aware of.

"It's always nice to see that the suburban world is a little artificial, as I might imagine," Batali observed, after Hines described the many fake aspects of her character Dallas. "I noticed that they added yet another opportunity to view it," he continued. "Last night at 9:30 they started the series again from the pilot, so on Tuesday nights at 9:30 you can view it and Wednesday nights at 8:30 for the original, right?"

Cheryl Hines, 'The Rosie Show'Cheryl Hines worked her way into the world of professional acting through many of the classic routes like being a waitress and bartender. But she revealed on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN) that she had a rather different job as well, and one that did require a bit of acting.

By unique, though, we apparently mean her and four other women who looked remarkably like her ... and Janet Leigh, apparently. The women were part of a daily recreation of the classic 'Psycho' shower scene.

Cheryl Hines plays an over-the-top, crazy-eyed, 'Stepford Wives'-style supermom on the new absurdist suburban comedy 'Suburgatory.' She told the ladies of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) that she drew some inspiration for the character from her mother.

"I took a page from my mom," Hines said, pointing to her in the studio audience. "My mom always says you need a little glitz and glamor, and if you got it, flaunt it."

Cheryl Hines, 'Chelsea Lately'If you're Cheryl Hines and someone sends you pornography based on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' you're going to have to check it out. On 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), she admitted that she did take a peek at it.

If for nothing else, you'd want to know what the guy picked to play a porn version of Larry David looks like. She agreed that it was a very weird thing to see.

"It makes sense with my character," she said of her own porn counterpart with a coy smile.

City Dad Meets Suburban Mom, Thinks Her Too Trusting on 'Suburgatory' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 29th 2011 12:45AM
'Suburgatory' - 'Pilot''Suburgatory' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on ABC) follows the perhaps rash decision of single father to move his daughter from the bright lights of Manhattan to the suburbs. But this surreal little community is more like a cross between 'The Stepford Wives' and 'Edward Scissorhands' than any real suburban neighborhood.

Teenager daughter Tessa is understandably freaked out and uncomfortable in her new environment, but it's nice to see that the writers haven't forgotten that her father George would be just as out of place. We loved both of them freaking out over how quiet it is at night.

Charlie SheenWhile you may feel some Charlie Sheen fatigue, the former 'Two and a Half Men' star isn't running out of steam just yet.

According to TMZ, Sheen's live show -- he's going the route of Conan O'Brien -- sold out in 18 minutes. Yes, 18 minutes, a TicketMaster record.

Sheen announced on his official site that the $1 from every ticket sale will go to help those in Japan who have been affected by the earthquake and resulting tsunamis. The actor is also selling T-shirts adorned with the phrase "Duh, winning."

In other Sheen news, '30 Rock' star Alec Baldwin took to his Huffington Post blog to tell the troubled actor that he "can't win" in his fight with the studios. However, he did offer this advice: "But you know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology."

On March 20, TLC plans to air a special about the actor.

In other TV news ...

Cheryl Hines Talks About Her All-Girl, Semi-Nude VacationActress Cheryl Hines has been starring on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' for eleven seasons now. So it stands to reason that she could use a little time off. On 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), she discussed a highly sexy all-girl trip to Mexico, much to Craig Ferguson's consternation.

Cheryl went to the beach, accompanied by a group of female friends. Here's a quick list of what their trip involved:

1) Tequila shots.
2) Semi-naked 'Slip 'n Slide.'
3) Skinny-dipping.
4) Eating at a restaurant with two naked girls, whose breasts were only covered with "corn tortillas." (A nice touch, in that it's kind of a nod to Mexican cuisine.)

The Show Girl Gets 'Dirty' with Mike Rowe, Talks 'In Treatment' & 'School Pride' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 22nd 2010 10:00AM
Mike Rowe, 'Dirty Jobs'Mike Rowe does a lot of 'Dirty Jobs,' but this week I get him to do the one job that millions of people around the world do every single day, often multiple times a day. Any guesses? He also shares cold, hard cell phone picture evidence (shown here) that a lemur bite is serious business, and says he'd love to romance the main character on one of TV's funniest shows.

I've also got details on the latest season of 'In Treatment,' including new castmembers Debra Winger and Amy Ryan and what the airing schedule is like this year, since they love to change it up and confuse us all.

Then I catch up with Cheryl Hines and Denise Cramsey to talk about their new reality-renovation show 'School Pride,' which they say has "the biggest impact of any renovation show ever" ... and judging by the emotion it stirs in me, I might have to agree.

TV Moment of 2009: 'Seinfeld' Reunion on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

by Meg Prossnitz, posted Dec 27th 2009 9:00AM
Larry David -- Curb Your EnthusiasmIt wouldn't be a new season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' without Larry David doing something with a self-serving purpose.

After running into Cheryl and discovering that she liked things better when Larry had a job, Larry becomes enthusiastic about a 'Seinfeld' reunion, though he has a hard time convincing Jerry of his change of heart.

When the reunion gets picked up, Larry comes up with another one of his wacky schemes -- this time, to cast Cheryl as Amanda, George Costanza's ex-wife. This weaves in the running gag that barely any of that cast, especially Jason, realize: that George is based on Larry. Luckily for Larry, the scheme doesn't blow up in his face like it usually does.

Review: Curb Your Enthusiasm - Seinfeld (season finale)

Jason Alexander and Jerry Seinfeld
(S07E10) "It's the Seinfeld reunion! That's a big deal!" - Cheryl

Yes, it is a big deal. A little over eleven years after we saw Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and George behind bars, the reunion we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. I'm not sure if this even counts as a category to classify TV shows, but last night's Curb Your Enthusiasm season finale was easily the best "show within a show" episode I've ever seen... of any show.

Jane was kind enough to step in for me and write up last week's penultimate ep and I actually waited until last night to see that one as well -- I watched them back to back. I was struck by how well it all flowed together; how much it actually felt like we were watching a real episode of Seinfeld, even during the table read. However, seeing it play out, scene by scene, in the finale? Talk about nostalgia.
