Look Who's Back! '90s Stars Return to TV

by Stephanie Earp, posted May 30th 2011 4:00PM
With the US networks' upfronts completed, it's time for us TV writers to start picking out trends from the announcements. Is the crime drama dying? Is comedy 'back'? One trend for 2011's fall TV that's hard to miss is the return of a large handful of '90s and early 2000s TV stars who've been away from the small screen.

It's sort of like all the popular kids from high school went off to college, where they majored in things like the comedy-horror movie, highly publicized relationships and dubious art house films, and now they're back -- a little older, a little wiser and with way better hair. Welcome home, kids.

Sarah Michelle Gellar in 'Ringer,' The CW

Plot Summary: Gellar plays twins -- one a washed-up recovering alcoholic, the other a high-society wife. When wifey disappears under mysterious circumstances, Miss Intervention takes her place, only to discover her sister's life is way more messed up than her own.

Californication -- An early look

CalifornicationFive years after the end of The X-Files, David Duchovny is back on the small screen! Okay, he did guest star here and there since then but coming this Monday, he is back as a regular on a series.

Duchovny will play Hank Moody, a self-destructive writer, in Showtime's Californication. TV fans who are used to seeing Duchovny portray The X-Files' Fox Mulder and haven't seen much of his other projects will be placed outside of their comfort zone when watching him play Hank Moody, especially if they tune in Californication without knowing what it's about.

Desperate HousewivesAfter watching "Getting Married," Desperate Housewives' third season finale, most viewers were wondering if Edie survived her suicide attempt. Even if the episode didn't leave us with a wide number of cliffhangers, we did ask ourselves other questions such as how long Gaby and Victor would stay married, how long before someone finds out Bree is not pregnant, how would Lynette cope with her illness, and how would Susan and Mike's marriage turn out to be. We have some answers for you!

Spoilers warning!

The Office - Hardest working cast in show biz - VIDEO

rainn wilson of the officeSheesh. You'd think that winning an Emmy would buy a cast some time off. Not so for the crew over at Dunder Mifflin. Michael has been covering the webisode mystery since July. But that isn't all that NBC had the cast up to this summer. While clicking around Comcast's On Demand service today I came across the NBC fall preview. Between promos for their various shows, there were eight little scenes from The Office. Everyone gets to play, but the focus is mostly on Dwight, Pam, and Jim. If you are a fan of the show, you will enjoy it. I'll not spoil it for you by quoting, but there are some classic Dwight lines. And thanks to the power of the internet, you won't even need Comcast to see it. Watch the video, sans previews, after the jump.

NBC sneak peek: Tina Fey and Jeff Goldblum yes, Andy Richter no

by Bob Sassone, posted May 11th 2006 3:01PM
Tina FeyWe'll have full coverage of all the network upfronts next week, but here's a little preview of the news we might hear.

NBC has given the green light to Tina Fey's show about a late night variety show (a lot like Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60, which has also gotten the green light) and the dramas Friday Night Lights, Heroes, and Raines (with Jeff Goldblum), as well as the comedies Community Service, 20 Good Years, and The Singles Table.

The loser in all this? Andy Richter. His Andy Barker, P.I. (produced by Conan O'Brien) has been turned down by the network.
