How will Benjamin Bratt do on Modern Family?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 4th 2010 10:05AM
modern_family_benjamin_brattLast night there was a fresh, new episode of Brothers & Sisters on ABC. I was so elated that I nearly jumped from my chair to see a non-rerun. Well, this week were sorta/kinda back from vacation as a bunch of shows will be airing new shows. For that, I say, "Hooray!"

One I'm really looking forward to seeing is Wednesday's Modern Family with Benjamin Bratt guesting as Manny's father. The reason for my anticipation is this: I haven't liked any of the guest turns on Modern Family thus far this year. I thought Shelley Long was over-the-top as Jay's ex-wife, the mother of Claire and Mitchell; Fred Willard was basically a cameo as Phil's dad; and in one episode, Elizabeth Banks and Ed Norton embarassed themselves as bizarre characters.

Don't tell Nancy Grace her show is a joke

by Bob Sassone, posted May 21st 2009 6:22PM
Here's a tip: if you're invited to be a guest on a talk show, it's probably not the best strategy to insult the host and say you're embarrassed to even be on the show. That's what happened to a guest on Nancy Grace's CNN Headline News show the other night. This guy has actually been a guest on her show before, but I'm assuming never again.

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Suburbs

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 17th 2009 9:55AM
Chuck(S02E13) Memo to NBC: Idea for product placement on Chuck. All the computers and cell phones are great, but what about Excedrin, Tylenol or Advil? In this episode alone, Chuck's brain activated the Intersect so many times that he should have needed something extra strength to deal with the killer headache he had to have had when he finally got out of the top secret Fulcrum initiation lab. I was ready to reach for two tablets myself, what with all the flashing and colors and weird old stock footage.

Anyway, this was the Happy Valentine's Day show, which is why last week's pre-empted episode was re-slotted so this one could land in closer proximity to the holiday. It made sense, then, for there to be some good Chuck and Sarah flirting. Not flirting with each other, just flirting with the idea of them flirting with a real relationship. It looked good there for a while. More after the jump.

Who are your favorite guest stars on The Simpsons, and what's your favorite episode?

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 13th 2007 2:20PM

simpsonsSince the very first season, The Simpsons have had numerous guest stars. Some have only appeared once, while others have returned again and again. Now, with the eighteenth season recently wrapped up and no end in sight, The Simpsons have had roughly twelve billion guest stars. That number might not be accurate, but I think it's close.

I mention this because our friends at AOL (which owns TV Squad), want to know who your favorite Simpsons guest stars are. If your brain needs a bit of prodding, you can check out this list I made a year ago, but I think my fellow Simpsons fans should be able to come up with a list of actors just fine on their own.

Oh yeah, and AOL also wants to know what your favorite episode of all time is, so be sure to mention that, too.

So, start filling up the comments, folks. The most popular choices will be featured on AOL TV sometime in the near future. We'll keep you posted.

American Idol lines up celebrity guests

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 25th 2007 7:01PM
gwen stefaniAmerican Idol has an impressive guest list of artists for the rest of this season. Guests include Tony Bennett, Bon Jovi, Barry Gibb, Jennifer Lopez, Lulu, Martina McBride, Peter Noone, Diana Ross, and Gwen Stefani. Looking at that list, it's pretty obvious there will be themes including disco, rock, pop, '50s, country, and lounge.

First of all, I'd love to see Diana Ross be a guest judge. I think her zanyness could rival Paula's and maybe even make Paula look sober.

I think the biggest 'get' is Gwen Stefani, who is on top of her game right now. I guess she knows where her fans are. There's no doubt (har, har) that Gwen's young fans are the same people who watch Idol.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look as though any of these celebrities will actually perform. Idol's press release lists the celebs as "coaches" and "guests". So... they'll be helping performers choose and prepare songs and probably also be guest judges. Performers scheduled for this season are former Idol contestants Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler.

It was a guest-a-rama on SNL... and NBC ruins the surprise

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 13th 2006 9:02AM
Alec Baldwin, Martin Short, and Steve MartinMan, that must have been a hell of an after-party Saturday night, huh?

Saturday's episode, hosted by Alec Baldwin, set the record for guest cameos: Tracy Morgan, Tina Fey, Steve Martin, Martin Short, Tony Bennett, and Paul McCartney all showed up to help bring some juice to what turned out to be a middling episode (the Nancy Pelosi sketch and the Baldwin/Martin sketch were good, as was Alec's line, "Bobby McFerrin raped my grandmother," but that was about it). Some of the participants, like Short and McCartney, were true surprises, but the others weren't. Why? Because NBC's promotions department are a bunch of putzes, that's why.

More hosts to fill in for Ebert

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 20th 2006 3:05PM

ebertWhile recovering in the hospital from cancer surgery, the syndicated Ebert and Roeper has had a different guest host on every week to fill in for Ebert while he recovers. Now that it's been revealed that Ebert is actually going to be spending more time in the hospital than he initially thought, even more hosts have been lined up to keep the show going as he convalesces. The guests, which will appear on the show until the end of September, include Aisha Tyler, Fred Willard, television writer John Ridley, entertainment reporter Toni Senecal, and Chicago Tribune movie critic Michael Phillips. It is still uncertain when Ebert will be able to return to work, but I hope it's sooner rather than later. Having guest critics on is fun and all, but I do miss Roger.

Casting call for Battle of the Wedding Singers

by Adam Finley, posted May 9th 2006 6:35PM
cakeAre you between the ages of 21 and 99? Are you also a man or woman? If you are, I just want you to know that's totally awesome. Oh yeah, and New Line television has sent out a casting call for a new reality series called Battle of the Wedding Singers in which two wedding singers compete at the same wedding reception. The bride, groom, and all of their guests then vote on who they think the best singer is. The loser is then taken out into the street and shot in the head. Or so I assume, there's not much information. The idea of a competition for something that doesn't really require much more than mediocre vocal talent doesn't seem especially appealing to me, but at least the rest of the show sounds incredibly boring.
