David Cassidy Suing SonyDavid Cassidy claims he's owed a small fortune of profits from 'The Partridge Family.'

According to CNN, the actor is suing Screen Gems, CRT Holdings, Sony Pictures Television and Sony Pictures Entertainment in Los Angeles Superior Court.

"For nearly 40 years, defendants have swindled Mr. Cassidy out of his rightful share of the profits from 'The Partridge Family,' and when Mr. Cassidy has inquired as to the matter, have lied to him so as to continue to conceal their deception," the lawsuit says.

Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that the defendants aren't staying true to Cassidy's contract and are continuing to scam him.

Richard Hatch pushes David Cassidy, 'Celebrity Apprentice'New competition, but apparently it's going to be the same old Richard Hatch. Utilizing the same aggressive, manipulative and controlling techniques that won him the first season of 'Survivor,' Hatch came into 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Sunday, 9PM ET on NBC) with both barrels blazing.

He volunteered to be the first project manager for the men's team, and then allowed a minor pushing scuffle with fellow contestant David Cassidy to escalate into a boardroom blowout.

"Did you push, as an example, David off? Physically push him," Donald Trump asked Hatch.

"Not physically, intentionally ever," Hatch answered carefully.

Gary Busey Is Terrifying in the First 'Celebrity Apprentice' Promo

by Jean Bentley, posted Jan 12th 2011 11:15AM
Gary Busey, Celebrity ApprenticeIn this first promo for the upcoming season of 'Celebrity Apprentice,' this year's gang of unlikely star contestants tell a dude in a suit (what, The Donald was busy?) why they're qualified to be the next champion.

Let's just say their answers probably wouldn't get them a business-related job anywhere else other than an NBC reality show -- LaToya Jackson's "I'm an entrepreneur, and a Jackson" and Nene Leakes' "When I walk into a room, I own it" aren't actual things you can put on your resume. Jose Canseco's menacing bat swing and Gary Busey's terrifying gaze might get me to think twice, though.

Susan Dey is Missing From 'Partridge Family' Reunion on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 2nd 2010 12:00PM
The majority of the 'Partridge Family' cast, including David Cassidy, Danny Bonaduce, Brian Forster and Suzanne Crough, reunited this morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). However, Shirley Jones and Susan Dey were missing; Jones was apparently on tour and unable to attend, but the cast was at a loss to account for Dey.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Bonaduce addressed Dey's absence first. "The only way you can reach Susan Dey is, I think, by teleprompter. She does not come out of the cave as far as I can tell," he said.

Watch the video after the jump.

'The Partridge Family Cast': Where Are They Now?

Partridge Family where are they now

Where are 'The Partridge Family' stars now? They invited you to 'C'mon Get Happy,' but did the cast of 'The Partridge Family' follow its own advice? David Cassidy, Danny Bonaduce, Brian Forster and Suzanne Crough are among the stars of the classic 1970s musical sitcom that reunited this morning on NBC's 'Today.'

Some of the TV family members have stayed in the public eye since their days of donning crushed velvet and singing 'I Think I Love You,' while others have long since gotten off the pop culture bus. Here's where the Partridges flew following the cancellation of the series in 1974.

One show renewed by ABC Family, one show canceled by ABC Family

Ruby & The RockitsAll of you David Cassidy fans* out there are out of luck.

ABC has canceled his new show Ruby & The Rockits. It seems like the show just started ... well, that's because that's pretty much true. The show will be axed after only one season.

Anyone who wants to see the show renewed for a second season will have to start a campaign like the nut campaign that saved Jericho for another season. I don't watch the show, so I'm not sure what you could mail to ABC Family to get their attention. Maybe rubies? Rockets?

A Partridge Family reunion? C'mon, get happy!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 4th 2009 2:07PM
The Partridge FamilyThe Partridge Family was one of those cheesy 1970s sitcoms that was horribly predictable, sugary-sweet, and much of the plot revolved around David Cassidy's fluffy hair. And yet, I loved it, right down to the sappy song they played at the end of every episode.

If you, too, are a closet fan of The Partridge Family, here's your chance to catch a mini-reunion of the singing family. David Cassidy plays David Gallagher on the ABC Family show Ruby & The Rockits. Shirley Jones -- who played his mom on The Partridge Family -- will once again play that role on Ruby.

Ok, here's where things get complicated. In real life, Jones is Cassidy's stepmother. She's also mom to his co-star and brother Patrick Cassidy, who plays Patrick Gallagher on Ruby. Meanwhile, David's brother Shaun Cassidy serves as executive producer, and brother Ryan is the show's set decorator.

Now if we could just get Danny Bonaduce and Susan Dey to guest star as traveling musicians passing through town in a colorful bus, a whole lot of lovin' is what they'd be bringin'!

CW wrap-up: Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place, Life Unexpected - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 4th 2009 8:28PM
Life UnexpectedThe CW's TCA panels today were full of beautiful people. It seemed like all the shows were about young pretty things in scandalous situations. Even the highly-anticipated Vampire Diaries didn't look much different, except some of the over-sexed high schoolers were vampires. But one show shined through the pretty clutter in the CW's new slate. Too bad we won't see it until early 2010.

That show is Life Unexpected, which CW programming head Dawn Ostroff described as "Juno meets Gilmore Girls." After seeing the pilot, I can agree with that description. It's sweet, warm, even a little bit hokey. In fact, it feels like a show that would have been on the old WB network. What the heck is it doing on the CW?

My top five TV guilty pleasures

by Paul Goebel, posted Jun 19th 2007 9:36AM

After you have spent as many hours watching TV as I have, you grow immune to the out of date idea that television rots your brain or that it's the opiate of the masses or any of the other nonsense that has been spouted throughout the years. However, even though I love television and make no excuses for that love, there are a few shows that I am almost ashamed to say that I love. Here are the top five shows that I can't get enough of.

1. Big Brother
I look forward to this show every summer. Ever since season two, when Dr. Will showed that it's possible to be the biggest prick in the house and still win, I am always amazed by BB.
