'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

FX Renews 'American Horror Story'

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 31st 2011 2:15PM
American Horror Story RenewedAfter scoring record ratings for the network, FX has renewed 'American Horror Story' for a second season.

"It's one thing to have the ambition and guts to reinvent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience -- it's something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up," John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks, said in a statement. "Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Glee' and now 'American Horror Story,' which will be scaring FX's viewers to death for many years to come."

Dylan McDermott Was a Waiter to the Stars in His Dad's Restaurant (VIDEO)

Dylan McDermott, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Dylan McDermott used to rub elbows with celebrities on a regular basis, which must make for some awkward flashbacks when he meets them now that he's one as well. On 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), he recalled waiting tables at his father's restaurant, where he served people like Michelle Pfeiffer and John Belushi.

We were pretty impressed with McDermott seemed to remember exactly Belushi's order, even after all these years. "He had the same thing faithfully," McDermott said. "He'd have the scrambled eggs with potatoes and toast and bacon and just put ketchup on everything."

EXCLUSIVE: Watch the First 5 Minutes of 'American Horror Story' Here (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 30th 2011 11:00AM
'American Horror Story' on FX'American Horror Story' is one of the weirdest, creepiest, genuinely jump-out-of-your-seat frightening TV shows we've ever seen.

From the minds of Ryan Murphy (of 'Nip/Tuck' fame) and his 'Glee' co-creator Brad Falchuk, 'American Horror Story' has been stamped with the "psychosexual thriller" genre thanks to the many murders, inexplicable phenomena and haunted happenings in the Harmon family's new L.A. home.

But you don't have to wait until the show premieres (Wed., Oct. 5, 10PM ET on FX) to see what I'm talking about -- AOL TV's got the first five minutes of the premiere exclusively for you right here.

Stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy are nowhere to be found in this video though. Rather, the series kicks off with a set of young twins in 1978 being warned that the house doesn't take kindly to intruders. A dead animal and some body parts in jars later, and the twins learn the lesson that the Harmons will have to learn again and again in present day: People who go into that house don't tend to come back out.

Check out the video and tell us what you think in the comments. Will you watch 'American Horror Story'?

Dylan McDermott Knows What Women Want on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 29th 2011 5:15AM
Dylan McDermott, 'Chelsea Lately'It's always a bold claim when any man claims to know what women want. Only Mel Gibson ever really figured it out, and that's only because he could read their minds. But Dylan McDermott took his boldness one step further by talking about it on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

So, not only does he claim to know what they want, he's going to put it to the test right there in front of a woman. And his theory was actually pretty simple.

"I think the most important thing to a woman is talking to them," he said. "Men want to have sex." And there it is.

New Promo for FX's 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 27th 2011 6:00PM
American Horror Story'American Horror Story' (premieres Wed., Oct. 5, 10PM ET on FX) is still somewhat of a mystery -- there's a troubled family living in a haunted house, plagued by horrific things -- and FX's previews aren't helping matters any. But boy, are they creepy.

Described as "addictive," "terrifying" and "sexy," the new "Creators" trailer claims that the show has everything you love about a thriller, but nothing you expect.

From the minds of 'Glee' co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, this new psychological thriller is decidedly darker than their song-and-dance-filled Fox hit.

Starring Dylan McDermott as Ben Harmon and Connie Britton as his wife Vivien, the spookiness starts when the Harmons move from Boston to L.A. Rounding out the star-studded cast is Jessica Lange as the Harmon's neighbor, as well as Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Denis O'Hare and Frances Conroy.

Also just announced is 'Heroes' alum Zachary Quinto as a gay interior designer who used to own the Harmon's new home.

Curious? Check out the trailers right here and tell us what you think.

TNT Cancels 'Dark Blue'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2010 6:15AM
Cast of 'Dark Blue'Even the addition of Tricia Helfer to the cast couldn't save 'Dark Blue': The gritty undercover cop drama has become the latest show consigned to the junkyard this fall.

According to The Futon Critic, a spokesman for TNT confirmed that the network will not be ordering a third season of the series.

Although it stars Dylan McDermott and is executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, 'Dark Blue' has struggled with ratings and reviews. The second season only managed to rake in an average of 2.25 million viewers, making it the least-watched of TNT's summer offerings.

Wearing a Wire Leads to Disaster on 'Dark Blue' (VIDEO)

Wearing a Wire Leads to Disaster on 'Dark Blue'Going undercover to catch a criminal must be a fairly stressful job. Still, if you're going to do it, at least make sure that you're good at keeping a straight face. On the latest episode of 'Dark Blue' (Wed., 9PM ET on TNT), the team uses a crook to ensnare a crook. But after that ... things go horribly wrong.

[Spoiler alert.]

A twenty-year-old is killed by a loan shark for his gambling debts. So the 'Dark Blue' detectives send fellow criminal Billy (Rick Hoffman) in with a wire, in order to record a confession from the bad guy. Billy gets his confession. But he's terrible at hiding his emotions. When the loan shark fesses up, Billy smirks. No! Don't do that! Now the bad guy knows that Billy is a snitch.

George Lopez Picks a Tattoo, With Some Help From Kat Von D (VIDEO)

George Lopez Picks a Tattoo, With Some Help From Kat Von DIs getting "ink" a good idea or not? George Lopez must consider this question. He's 49 years old, and thus far, he has no tattoos. But all of that may change tonight.

On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS), George talks with legendary tattoo artist Kat Von D. And she gives him a bunch of different options for works of art that he could have permanently inscribed into his skin. Here are some of the options:

1) A tattoo of Kanye West's "Twitter" page.

2) A tattoo of a United States passport. (This being a sly "illegal immigrant" reference on Kat's part.)

3) The names of Lopez's wife and daughter. (Aw! How cute!)

4) A "Golf or Die" tattoo. (Which refers to George's love of ... golf -- duh.)

So those are the options! They're all fairly good -- or awful, depending on your point of view. Which one should George go with?

On 'Dark Blue,' Ty and Carter Get "Jacked" by Drug Dealers (VIDEO)

On 'Dark Blue,' Ty and Carter Get 'Jacked' by Drug DealersHow far undercover is too undercover to go? On 'Dark Blue' (Wed., 9PM ET on TNT), our heroes infiltrate the underground world of drug dealers. But they may have gone too far, this time around.

[Spoiler alert.]

Ty and Carter (played by Omari Hardwick and Dylan McDermott) try to perform a "sting" operation. In this case, though, they seem to have gotten too close to the criminals. Not only do they get outsmarted, but they also lose the money they brought to buy drugs -- which was part of the sting. How do they lose it? They get robbed.

Also, Carter gets bashed on the head by one of the criminals, and is knocked unconscious. See, this is the "danger zone" with going undercover. If you get too mixed up with the bad guys, then there's always the chance that you're just giving them the upper hand.

Dylan McDermott, 'Dark Blue'This week, I've got scoop on the new season of gritty cop drama 'Dark Blue,' which star Dylan McDermott promises will be more romantic. Need proof? New star Tricia Helfer in a makeout session with a pair of handcuffs sounds sexy enough to me.

I also toast the return of 'Mad Men,' and get a surprise visit from Sally Draper herself, Kiernan Shipka, who says there'll be comedy and some great moments for her character this season. (Watch until the very end to hear her surprising list of favorite bands.) Then I dish about new makeover/reality dating series 'Plain Jane' with the show's host and fairy godmother Louise Roe, who also has some style tips to share.

'The Middle' - 'The Bee' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 4th 2010 2:30AM
Eden Sher, 'The Middle'(S01E16) The Hecks went on their first road trip, as we found out something that Brick is really good at, and something that happens more often than families would like to admit. I've had my birthday forgotten more than once by my busy family, and it made me feel about as small as Sue did.

However, I was never given the level of power Frankie gave her over the family trip to Chicago. Guilt is certainly a powerful agent in making potentially poor decisions.

As for Brick, it shouldn't come as a real surprise that he's a great speller. With his nose constantly in books his parents probably couldn't even read, how could he not be?

Jane After Dark: Ally McBeal, season one

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 25th 2009 3:03PM
Ally McBeal, season oneIt's always interesting when you've been hearing about a series for years and then finally sit down to watch it. All the little pieces and pop references of Ally McBeal are starting to come together, like Fishisms, The Biscuit, dancing babies and Vonda Shepard. I have seen the light. Well, at least season one of the light.

I mentioned in my preview last week that Ally McBeal seems like a mix of The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd and My World and Welcome To It. Having reached the end of season one, I still feel that way, with maybe a little Buffy the Vampire Slayer thrown in (hey, don't throw things at me, Ally looks like Buffy).

Molly Dodd because Ally is funny, desperate, strong and cute. My World because of all her fantasies, though not always in cartoon form as was the case with John Monroe / James Thurber.
