Carolyn Hennesy of 'Cougar Town' and 'General Hospital' Is On The Prowl

by Michael Maloney, posted Mar 3rd 2010 2:00PM
Carolyn HennesyWhat do the breakout characters of sexy real estate agent Barb on 'Cougar Town' and savvy lawyer Diane on 'General Hospital' have in common? Both are played with deft timing and comedic perfection by actress Carolyn Hennesy.

By day, Diane is one of the few (if not only) people in Port Charles who gets to tell mobster Sonny Corinthos what to do. By night, Barb is Gulf Haven's woman on the prowl. In tonight's episode of 'Cougar Town' (9PM ET, ABC), Barb places an ad in a newspaper (ask you grandparents, kids) for an errand boy and it's answered by none other than Courteney Cox's TV son Dan Byrd (Travis).

AOL TV recently caught up with Hennesy, who gave a preview of the episode and shared how 'Cougar Town' and 'GH' work together to keep her one of ABC's busiest -- and funniest -- stars.

Gone Too Soon: 'Freaks and Geeks'

Freaks and Geeks
Created by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, 'Freaks and Geeks' is one of those rare television treasures that no one saw or appreciated until it was too late. Okay, that's unfair. Critics, the press and the loyal fans who did find the show on NBC immediately knew that it was something special. Unfortunately, it didn't find wide enough appeal to last beyond its first season.

Ironically, the show's cast of virtual unknowns now reads like an all-star comedy troupe, which is a testament to the brilliant casting that went on behind the scenes of the show. Finding such talented kids, and then coupling them with brilliant writing crafted on of the most revered television shows of all time.

Sheryl CrowGrammy-winner singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow has been tapped to appear in three episodes of the hit comedy series 'Courgar Town.'

Crow's past TV and movie appearances were mostly as herself and involved singing. However, she does have some acting experience from having played roles other than herself in movies such as '54' and 'The Minus Man' as well as in TV series such as 'Cop Rock.'

Sheryl Crow will have to tap in her acting skills for her 'Cougar' gig as the singer will not be playing herself.

Small spoilers about her role coming up!

ABC Greenlights Comedy from 'Scrubs' Writers

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 1st 2010 9:35AM
ABC logoABC really loves dealing with Bill Lawrence and his crew, don't they? 'Scrubs' has been on far longer than anyone expected, and 'Cougar Town' is now on its way to a second season. It seems like Steve McPherson and company haven't been deterred by the poor ratings of 'Scrubs,' since he's ordered a pilot from two of the show's writers.

'How to Be a Better American' is about a middle-aged man who goes on a journey to be a better man, dragging his unwilling family along with him. It's a single-camera comedy that will be run by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley, longtime members of Team Lawrence; they will also be writing the pilot.

No casting news yet, so the show is more of a concept than anything else. But it sounds kind of like 'The Middle' in an RV, which actually wouldn't be so bad. As long as they don't have a kid who whispers to himself, they'll be OK.

'How I Met Your Mother' Creators Ink Deal With Fox

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Jan 25th 2010 10:10AM
Although we're still awaiting crucial plot details on the popular CBS series 'How I Met Your Mother,' that hasn't stopped show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas from thinking about their next move.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the duo has inked a large deal with 20th Century Fox TV to produce a new untitled comedy series, set to hit the marketplace sometime this week.

What will the show be about? Details are scarce; however, the report says the show will be in the same vain of 'How I Met Your Mother' as it follows a Pittsburgh-based couple and their friends.

"The new show is similar tonally to 'HIMYM' and investigates the next chapter, the next stage of adulthood," Bays said.

Bill Lawrence on the Cougar Town renewal and Scrubs missteps - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 16th 2010 11:06AM
Bill Lawrence at the Winter 2010 TCAsDuring ABC's portion of the press tour (which feels like a month ago already), the network had its Wednesday night comedy showrunners on for a panel. Surpisingly, Bill Lawrence actually let Steven Levitan of Modern Family and Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline of The Middle speak for a good portion of the time, though he had a few things to say himself, not the least of which was that Conan's letter saying no to 12:05 on NBC was a "ballsy" move.

You knew I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to speak to Bill while he was there, especially with Cougar Town getting picked up for a second season and the new Scrubs trying to find its way after a shaky start. The conversation we had is after the jump.

(Oh, and it's always amazing to me that I can talk to Lawrence for maybe 15 minutes, cut out 3500 words, and still have 2500 words left. The man can talk a blue streak.)

Not Just 'Friends' Anymore: Ranking the Cast's Post-Show Careers

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Jan 13th 2010 1:15PM
Could it be a better day for fans of 'Friends'?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has greenlit the new comedy series 'Mr. Sunshine,' starring Chandler Bing himself, Matthew Perry.

The single-camera show was conceived and written by Perry, alongside Alex Barnow and Marc Firek, who together worked on shows like ''Til Death' and 'Family Guy.'

The show centers around a 40-year-old San Diegan having a mid-life crisis. Perry joins 'Friends' alum Courteney Cox on the newtork, whose show, 'Cougar Town,' was recently renewed for a second season.

With news of another 'Friend' potentially making their way back into our primetime lives, we thought about the different career trajectories that each cast member has experienced since the show ended in 2004. In lieu of anything scientific, here's our rankings of how they've fared over the years.

On 'Cougar Town,' Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox reunited to share the small screen for the first time since the 'Friends' finale in 2004. But, Kudrow's new role was a far cry from that of loveable Phoebe on the iconic sitcom.

Kudrow played acid-tongued Dr. Evans, a cruel dermatologist who belittles her patients and ultimately makes time with Jules' ex-husband Bobby.
