DVR Divas: The 2010 Emmy Nominations Made Us (Mostly) Happy

by Kelly Woo, posted Jul 12th 2010 3:30PM
Connie Britton, Kyle ChandlerYear after year, I've tuned into the Emmy nominations only to end the morning feeling bitter and disappointed that my favorites yet again didn't get nominated.

Then, last week -- shock of shockers -- Emmy got it ... well ... more right, with Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler earning much-deserved, much-delayed nominations for their fine work on 'Friday Night Lights.'

But of course, there were still outrageous snubs (where is 'Community'? Katey Sagal?!) and Patricia Chui joined me to talk about who got robbed of Emmy nominations.

Plus, we chat about the sad turn of events on 'So You Think You Can Dance.'

angelo, top chefWhat's-His-Face is totally winning this season of 'Top Chef.'

OK, so it's a bit early to be placing our bets on who might take the title of 'Top Chef: D.C.,' considering we can't even remember half of the cheftestants names. But Joel Keller and Chris Harnick join me to make early predictions.

Plus, we discuss the possible replacements for retiring CNN host Larry King. Seacrest in? Will Piers Morgan will take on the mantle?

DVR Divas: Bad Boys of 'The Bachelorette' and 'Entourage'

by Kelly Woo, posted Jun 28th 2010 12:00PM
The Bachelorette'The Bachelorette' and 'Entourage' are guilty pleasures that I can't quite stop myself from watching. ABC's dating reality franchise has an abysmal track record when it comes to relationships -- only two couples who met on the show have gotten married and most broke up a millisecond after the season ended). And HBO's once-glamorous, once-humorous comedy isn't really either anymore.

So why do viewers like myself keep watching? Well, one way for a show to keep our interest is SCANDAL, like tonight's big 'Bachelorette' twist. Divas crew and I dissect the latest rumors and spoilers about Ali Fedotowsky and her suitors, plus talk about our (unhealthy?) need to keep watching 'Entourage.'

DVR Divas: Fighting 'Whale Wars' on the High Seas

by Kelly Woo, posted Jun 4th 2010 5:50PM
Whale WarsWhile you were chowing down on turkey on Thanksgiving Day or toasting with champagne this past New Year's Eve, Captain Chuck Swift and Peter Hammerstedt were chasing down whaling ships in frigid Antarctic waters.

They're part of a group called the Sea Shepherds, a marine conservation society, and their battles against whalers are documented on Animal Planet's hit series, 'Whale Wars.'

Season 3 begins tonight at 9PM ET, and Swift and Hammerstedt stopped by our studio to chat with myself and fellow TV Squad editor Patricia Chui about what to expect (lots more danger), the operation's new ship (named for a generous game show host) and how they got involved with Sea Shepherds.

DVR Divas: Season Finales of 'Lost,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Dancing With the Stars'

by Patricia Chui, posted Jun 2nd 2010 11:51AM
Greys AnatomyAs we head into summer, most of us TV addicts regard the finale season just passed with a combination of sorrow and relief -- sorrow that our favorite TV shows have ended (some of them for good), and relief that with less TV to watch, maybe we'll actually start being productive around the house for once. (Yeah, right. After all, there's always 'Wipeout.')

Our DVR Divas panel of Joel Keller, Patricia Chui, Andy Scott and Kelly Woo, unwilling to let go, took one last nostalgic look back at this season's big finishes -- from hugely anticipated series finales ('Lost,' '24') to big series finales ('Grey's Anatomy,' 'Dancing With the Stars') to endings that seemed anticlimactic ('The Office').

DVR Divas: First Impressions of New Fall TV Shows

by Kelly Woo, posted May 24th 2010 12:00PM
Undercovers on NBCEvery May, as all the hottest television shows are wrapping up their seasons, the networks like to tease us with what's coming up the following fall. It's called upfronts week, and this year's announcements of cancellations, pick-ups and schedule changes were particularly explosive.

We invited TV Guide Magazine's senior critic, Matt Roush (@RoushTVGuideMag), to discuss the new shows (J.J. Abrams' 'UnderCovers' looks hot!) and the biggest scheduling moves ('Big Bang Theory' to Thursday!). Also joining me (@kellyaoltv) were news editor Andy Scott (@aolandy) and editorial assistant Chris Harnick (@chrisharnick).

Watch what we had to say about upfronts ...

DVR Divas: Is Thursday Night on NBC Still Must-See TV?

by Patricia Chui, posted May 17th 2010 12:16AM
Community: Modern WarfareOn Sunday's upfronts conference call, NBC unveiled its fall lineup -- and one of the surprises was that sophomore sitcom and critical darling 'Parks and Recreation' would not be part of the fall schedule, but would be moved to midseason.

'Parks,' of course, is part of NBC's Thursday-night lineup, otherwise known (in one of the most insidious and effective examples of TV advertising ever) as "must-see TV." Historically, it's been a powerhouse of a night, since the '80s it's boasted such successes as 'The Cosby Show,' 'Friends,' 'Seinfeld,' 'L.A. Law' and 'ER.'

But have Thursday nights on NBC always been great? How does the current slate of shows compare to past blocks of programming? Does the lack of a strong ensemble drama cripple the lineup irreparably (and can 'Love Bites,' which will be filling that 10PM slot, save NBC's Thursdays from a season of 'The Jay Leno Show' and 'The Marriage Ref')?

Patricia Chui, Kelly Woo and Chris Harnick talk about bubble shows such as 'Law and Order,' 'Mercy,' 'V,' 'The Human Target' and other shows from The CW, ABC, NBC, Fox and CBS and what their chances are for renewal.

Patricia Chui, Brooke Tarnoff, Denise Warner and Kelly Woo talk about how and why 'Parenthood' has become one of NBC's nicest surprises. Welcome back, Lauren Graham!

DVR Divas: 'Bones' and Other TV Couples, the Return of 'Glee'

by Patricia Chui, posted Apr 12th 2010 4:30PM
Bones'Bones' just aired its 100th episode, and used the occasion to tease Bones and Booth's potential romantic relationship with a kiss ... that happened in the past. Is the show, by trying not to pull a 'Moonlighting,' toying with fans too much?

Patricia Chui, Chris Harnick, Andrew Scott and Denise Warner (of Girls on Pop fame), in discussing how the 'Bones' 100th episode may be the last straw for loyal viewers, reminisce about other will-they-or-won't-they TV couples (Mulder and Scully, Jim and Pam, Ross and Rachel) and whether or not they ruined their shows.

Also: We're psyched for the second-half premiere of 'Glee,' and we tell you what's in store for the 'Glee' kids this season -- as well as what the show needs to do to keep being great.
