Abby's trip to NCIS Los Angeles is set

Pauley_Perrette_NCISCircle the date on the calendar. On November 24 -- that's right before Thanksgiving so you might be busy with other stuff -- don't miss NCIS: Los Angeles because Pauley Perrette's Abby will be guesting. She won't just be on a monitoring talking to the folks in L.A.; she'll be in the City of Angels.

Goth Abby in the City of Angels? We knew it was coming. But how oxymoronic. All that sunshine is counter to the dark vibe, although if you ask me, Abby is a walking oxymoron. She's a scientist in love with forensics who is covered in tattoos, has a dog collar as a necklace and likes pigtails.

Anyway, back to the crossover. Michael Ausiello's sources have leaked to him at EW.com that Abby's visit to the Left Coast is a major plot point. Abby is not there by choice; she's been abducted.

Anyone could write a better headline than EW, so prove it

The new cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring a pants-less David LettermanThat bastion of journalistic excellence, Entertainment Weekly, unveiled their new cover and (surprise!) Letterman made the cover. It features the Late Show host without pants, which in any other context would be the lowest selling issue of EW since Ernest Borgnine forgot to put on underpants.

My problem isn't with the picture, although it seems it probably should be. It's the headline. Is "Oh, Dave" the best they could do? Hell, "Where the Wild Things Are" would be ten times better and save a fifth of the print space. Write a better headline in the comments section below and we'll feature the best ones in a future post.

HIMYM cast embodies the best of 2008 for EW

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 19th 2008 2:02PM
How I Met Your Mother cast as the Jonas Brothers (and fans)No one's accused the cast of How I Met Your Mother of having a collectively crummy sense of humor. Quite the contrary; every time I've seen them either in person or in a behind-the-scenes video, they always seem to be goofing around and having fun. At the very least, I'd imagine that neither Jason Segel nor Neil Patrick Harris allows things to get too heavy on the set.

So when Entertainment Weekly asked the cast to pose as various celebrities in a "The Best of 2008" pictorial, I'm sure they didn't need much time to say yes. In the pictorial, the cast portray the Olympic 4x200m relay team, the Jonas Brothers, and the cast of the Indiana Jones and Sex and the City movies. Finally, Segel and Alyson Hannigan pose as Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, respectively, during the VP debate. It might have been more interesting if they reversed roles in that photo, but I guess Segel didn't have the legs for it.

Harold Perrineau clarifies his comments

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 3rd 2008 12:03PM

PerrineauYou knew that Harold Perrineau's comments were going to cause a bit of controversy. You also knew that he would have to clarify some of the comments a few days later. Here is that clarification.

The Lost star admits to Entertainment Weekly that "I should probably think more before I say things," referring to comments he made that he was irritated with how producers deal with black characters on the hit ABC show and the fact that Michael couldn't be redeemed and have a happy ending with son Walt. He explains that he was just making an observation as a black man and that he wasn't angry at how the story played out, he was just disappointed. He loved working with the cast and crew and wouldn't be surprised if he came back to the show in the future. He also lists his three favorite and least favorite moments on the show.

My prediction? We haven't seen the last of Michael. He'll be back on the show some way, somehow.

Michael Ausiello leaves TV Guide for Entertainment Weekly

by Joel Keller, posted May 28th 2008 4:20PM
Mike AusielloWe've been hearing rumblings, published and otherwise, that TV Guide was in trouble, especially the venerable print edition. Earlier this month, for instance, the title's new owner, Macrovision, took over and immediately announced its plans to keep the online version of the magazine and either sell or shutter the print version, which has been published since 1953.

So the following news might not be much of a surprise: Michael Ausiello, TVG's scoop and spoiler maven, is taking his perky writing style and massive Rolodex to Entertainment Weekly, where he'll write for the TV sections of both the magazine and website starting July 2.

Oh, and how did we find this out? Mike sent us (and probably hundreds of others) the press release announcing his arrival. Never said the guy wasn't good at self-promotion.

Stephen Colbert: An Entertainer of the Year

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 24th 2006 7:03PM

Stephen ColbertEvery year, Entertainment Weekly picks their "Entertainers of the Year," and this year's list includes inevitable choices like Sacha Baron Cohen and YouTube, plus odd choices like Project Runway. Also on the list is Stephen Colbert, and also "Stephen Colbert," the character he plays on The Colbert Report. EW has an interview with the star and his alter-ego.

Colbert talks about everything from his infamous speech at the White House Corresondent's Dinner to getting Warren Beatty and Annette Bening to act confused on his show. He also introduces us to his new word for 2007. It's "Colbertainment," as in Colbertainment Weekly.

I have to admit that when The Colbert Report first started, I thought his "character" would get old really quick, something that was good for here and there or for a limited time but nothing a comedian could sustain and grow over a period of time. But I was wrong. I was wrong about NBC's remake of The Office too, so these things happen.

What to get Jim Halpert for Christmas

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 2nd 2006 8:40AM

John KrasinskiThis is the kind of advertising that I hate. It disguises itself as some sort of pop culture piece, one that's tied into the holiday season, but it's really just a way to mention a lot of products, list the company web site, and get some advertising in. It's Entertainment Weekly's Holiday Gift Guide, where they pick a celebrity or TV/movie character and list items you could get for that person. You know it's bogus because the gifts picked are either ridiculously obvious or don't really make any sense at all.

  • Battlestar GalacticaHave you checked out Trivial TV? It's a great site about, well, TV of course. But it has an incredible search engine for TV schedules. Type in the day, month, and year and you can see the TV network schedules for that night! Very cool.
  • Paul Davidson has two TV-related posts up at his blog this week. One is Prison Break: The Drinking Game, and the other is about Battlestar Galactica and Lucy Lawless' fingernail.
  • Ken Levine has some thoughts on the O.J. book/TV special (written before they were canceled).
  • Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch blog says that John Stamos has pumped so much life into ER that the show just might be renewed for a 15th season.
  • A TV Guide reader tells Matt Roush that the reason why Jericho is a hit is because "it's Lost for Republicans."

The Biggest Watercooler Moments of All-Time

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 17th 2006 11:32AM

I Love LucySince TV is in everyone's home, it's one of the pop culture things we can all talk about. Entertainment Weekly lists their 10 Big Watercooler Moments, those moments on TV shows that we were all talking about the next day at work (or school).

While some of their choices are obvious and deserving to be on the list (Lucy going into labor on I Love Lucy, Ellen DeGeneres coming out on Ellen, Maddie and David finally doing it on Moonlighting, the "Who Shot J.R." ep of Dallas), are they really serious when they list the episode that Michael J. Fox left Spin City? Really? Hey, I like Fox, but was his character (or even the show) that important and talked about? I think that Fox announcing he was ill was certainly something we all talked about, but I don't think that it should be on this list. Especially considering what EW left off the list: the finales of M*A*S*H*, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Friends; several Seinfeld moments (that was the topic of discussion every morning after where I worked), and the final episode of Newhart with Suzanne Pleshette.

I mean, Felicity cutting her hair? Gah.

  • Great episode of Heroes last night, eh? TV Addict has an interview with stars Adrian Pasdar and Milo Ventimiglia.
  • I don't believe this story at all. It just seems like some bs someone made up because Mario Lopez is doing so well on Dancing with the Stars.

Kevin Federline thinks Steve Carell is pimp, yo

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 29th 2006 8:19AM

Kevin FederlineAh, the wit and wisdom of K-Fed.

In a free-wheeling interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mr. Spears sounds off on a variety of topics: on being the most talked about person the past few years (?), what song he'd sing for his American Idol audition, his collection of Nike shoes, why he's a lot like Sammy Davis, Jr., what food he sneaks into movie theaters, why the Batmobile is badass, and getting his "GED and stuff." He also talks about his recent guest role on CSI.

Everytime I see this guy I think of his horrible performance at that teen awards show. How is his album doing, anyway?

  • New on DVD: they give the sixth season of Gilmore Girls a B+, the second season of The Office an A, the first season of My Name Is Earl an A, and season two of Grey's Anatomy an A-.
