by Kelly Woo, posted Jan 29th 2007 5:45PM

Grey's Anatomy on ABCWill Grey's Anatomy soon be George-less? MSNBC.com's The Scoop reports that a source says T.R. Knight is upset by how the network/show handled the aftermath of co-star Isaiah Washington's uses of a homophobic slur.

According to the source, Knight was asked to keep quiet about the initial incident, which happened on set. But then, Washington caused a furor by using the word again at the Golden Globes while trying to deny he'd ever used it in the first place.

What to watch Mon., Jan. 15

Golden Globe Awards

Stars -- they're just like us. They go to parties, get wasted and say things they shouldn't, too. That's what makes the Golden Globes the best awards show. Not only do we see movie and TV stars in the same room (Leo and Lilly! McDreamy and Meryl!), the celebs really let loose. Steve Carell, Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis all gave hilarious speeches last year.

Check out TV Squad's picks to win in each category.

The Golden Globes: Best Actress -- Drama

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 11th 2007 6:04PM

Patricia Arquette of Medium The species known as television viewers (scientific name blearyeyeus videoboxus) are an odd sort. When it comes to comedies we tend to converge on the same watering hole . . . in other words, we all like to laugh and we watch many of the same shows as our friends do. When it comes to dramas, though, the species can be a bit picky. Take me, for example. I'm a big fan of shows like ER and Bones, but have never watched an episode of Grey's Anatomy or Lost. There are others who are big fans of those two shows, but can't stand ER or Bones.

Why do I bring this up? Well, when it came time to write the post on the Golden Globe nominees for best actress in a drama the pickiness surfaced. That's why, rather than me writing 'Never watched the show' in my analysis of the five nominees, I decided to turn this post over to some of the other members of the TV Squad staff to give their opinions of the actresses and who should win.

So, thanks in advance to Anna, Jen, Brett, and Jay, and let's begin after the jump.

The Golden Globes: Best Actor - Musical or Comedy

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 9th 2007 2:25PM
Alec Baldwin on 30 RockThe Golden Globes were very kind to NBC this year, weren't they? Each nominee in the Best Actor - Musical or Comedy category this year is part of the Peacock family; the male leads from each of the network's Thursday comedies is joined by an old favorite, who happens to be in a show produced by NBC Universal that airs on an NBC-owned network. It was all kind of a surprise, since one might expect to see Charlie Sheen or Neil Patrick Harris here. But it's an NBC party and everyone is invited, and it's hard to argue with any of these choices.

So... who will win? Who should win? I'll let you know after the jump.

Jason Bateman and wife expecting first child

by Richard Keller, posted Jun 14th 2006 4:04PM

Pround Parents-to-beWhat do you do when your critically-acclaimed but ratings poor sitcom gets canceled? Well, you make babies, of course!

During an interview on a Los Angeles radio station last week, 37-year-old Jason Bateman, former star of Fox's Arrested Development, announced that he and wife Amanda Anka were expecting their first child. Anka is five-and-a-half months pregnant with a baby girl. Bateman, who married Anka back in 2001, says they are very excited about the upcoming birth and are currently poring over baby name books to find the perfect one.

Before his role on Arrested Development, for which he won a Golden Globe back in 2005, he made his name as a child actor starring in such 1980's hits as Silver Spoons and The Hogan Family. He recently appeared as a patient on the NBC comedy Scrubs. Anka, daughter of singer Paul Anka, has appeared in such shows as Diagnosis Murder and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Globes vs. 24: Globes win

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 18th 2006 11:04AM
NBC's gamble paid off. Last year, the Golden Globes got its butt kicked by new episodes of Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. So, NBC moved the Globes to Monday night where it faced part two of the 24 season premiere. The Globes prevailed, capturing an estimated 18.7 million viewers, which is about 2 million more than watched the awards show last year. 24 ended up with an estimated 14.9 million viewers.

I guess I'm not too surprised by that story. ABC dumped its programming and CBS ran repeats so all those viewers had every reason to flip to NBC. Personally, I chose 24 over the Globes. I find awards shows to be disappointing because the winners never say anything interesting.

Let's face it - awards shows are mostly lots of boring stuff with the occasional exciting moment when the awards you care about come up. To make things more exciting for you, though, TV Squad has come up with this fun-filled Play-Along-at-Home game to help occupy your time during the more mundane moments. We're not saying this is a drinking game, but, you know, if you wanted to make it a drinking game, or a potato chip eating game, or whatever, you could do that.

Here's how you play along. Just keep score at home (or drink, or eat a chip, or whatever you want) everytime you see the following things happen during the broadcast of the Golden Globes:

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 16th 2006 10:05AM
Oh, regrets. I really shouldn't have turned down the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's request to present an award at the Golden Globes tonight. After all, that's a darn fine goody bag the presenters get:

  • Trip for 2 to Antarctica (plus cold weather gear) with Quark Expedition, $22,000
  • Trip for 2 to Canada, for a diamond-cutting and polishing experience, $15,000

The Golden Globes home game

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 15th 2006 8:09AM
NBC has created a game on its website to go along with the live telecast of the Golden Globes, which air on Monday night (8-11 pm EST). It will feature a film and television trivia game that parallels whatever is happening on the Globes. It looks like the website is also going to have polls up as each category is announced so the internet can vote for who it wants to be Best Actress or whatever, and the results will appear in real-time up until the winner is announced. I think it would be interesting to see who people are hoping will win each category, compared to who actually wins.

You know what the website needs, that it doesn't have? A Golden Globes drinking game. Somebody kisses Jack Nicholson's ass? Take a drink! Someone does an impression of Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch? Drink! Scripted, playful banter between presenters falls flat? Drink up!
