A&E cancels The Cleaner

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 26th 2009 3:40PM
The_Cleaner_Benjamin_BrattWhile a lot of shows seem to be thriving in cable, in the last couple of days, two series have bitten the dust. TBS dumped The Bill Engvall Show after three seasons, and now A&E Network has canceled The Cleaner, opting not to give the drama series another year. Hmm... does that mean Benjamin Bratt is available to return to Law and Order?

Probably not. Been there, done that, you know. But the TV pro is now unemployed although I doubt that'll be for long. The Cleaner just never really clicked for A&E. It was as intense as the network's hit reality show, Intervention, but it wasn't nearly as compelling.

Warehouse 13: Duped

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 26th 2009 2:42AM
warehouse 13 duped(S01E08) Warehouse 13 finally delivered an insane episode worthy of the show's strange and ridiculous premise. Steve Rubel's bewitched disco ball mated with Lewis Carroll's magic mirror to make Myka switch places with Carol's "Alice," who turned out to be a really creepy serial killer. Now this is the kind of stuff I wanna see.

If you ask Syfy's marketing folks, tonight's ep was all about the guest stars, Eureka's Erica Cerra and Niall Matter. They were serviceable as married grifters addicted to a cool little artifact, but they were pushed to the background just like Tricia Helfer and Joe Flanigan before them. "Duped" was really all about watching the Warehouse team do some much-needed bonding (and bringing the weirdness and the screwball comedy elements to the forefront, of course).

Which one of Courteney Cox's old Friends would you like to see on Cougar Town?

by Mike Moody, posted Jul 23rd 2009 12:03PM
cougar town, abc, courtney coxWe all knew this was gonna happen.

Along with Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox starred in one of the most popular ensemble TV comedies of all time. It's inevitable that at least one of her former Friends co-stars will eventually show up on her new ABC comedy, Cougar Town, for a guest spot. Even show creator Bill Lawrence knows that this is something the TV Gods demand.

"You and I both know that we'll do that eventually," Lawrence told EW's Michael Ausiello about the possibility.

But don't expect to see any of Cox's old friends visiting Cougar Town any time soon. ABC is set on selling the show's star and not potential guest actors this fall, Lawrence said.

TV Stars' Guest-Starring Dream Roles

by AOL TV Staff, posted Apr 16th 2009 6:00AM
"'30 Rock' is just brilliant. I love it. Tina Fey is a goddess."

The biggest fans of actors are fellow actors, and we applaud those TV stars who appreciate shows other than their own.

We asked some of our faves which series they'd like to guest star on -- and ran into sci-fi lovers, crime-scene enthusiasts, Liz Lemonites ... and a few surprises along the way.

See which shows stars daydream about appearing on.

A Brady and a Broadway blonde check in to Samantha Who?

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 5th 2008 5:08PM
Flo HGuest stars can be good and guest stars can be not-so-good, but this one sounds like a winner to me. EW's Michael Ausiello has an exclusive report that Florence Henderson will be on Samantha Who?

And if you think Christina Applegate kind of looks like she could be related to Florence, you're not alone. The Brady Bunch veteran has been cast as Samantha Newly's grandmother, Jean Smart's mama. And if that's not blonde goodness and potential hilarity for you, TVGuide.com has another exclusive; Christine Ebersole will play Sammy's aunt. In the very same storyline!

Lindsay Lohan brings mayhem to Betty, will guest judge Project Runway

by Kelly Woo, posted Sep 21st 2008 10:06AM
This season of Project Runway lost some star power when Jennifer Lopez pulled out of judging the final runway shows due to a "foot injury" (which apparently didn't hamper her in a triathalon the next weekend).

But the reality show plans to make up for it. Access Hollywood says that Lindsay Lohan will be the guest critic in the premiere of the sixth season, the first with new producers and a new network in Lifetime.

Lohan's already in New York for her guest role on Ugly Betty, and the cast can't believe the "mayhem" she incites everywhere she goes. Ana Ortiz told ABC News Radio, "It really puts it into perspective the bubble that she has to live in ... people yelling at her and cussing at her. It's unbelievable."

Monk: Mr. Monk's 100th Case

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 6th 2008 12:39PM
Eric McCormack on Monk(S07E07) Too often when a show reaches an anniversary, like say 100 episodes, the producers feel the need to mark the occasion with an extraordinary entry. That was what happened with Monk.

To commemorate the 100th episode, they created Mr. Monk's 100th Case, and using a show within a show format, celebrated Adrian Monk, a modern day Sherlock Holmes. San Francisco's defective detective

Thank goodness it all worked! I was afraid we were going to get a clip-laden, down-memory-lane type of show with nothing remotely intriguing. No, writer Tom Scharpling and company were more clever than that.

Five memorable -- but less celebrated -- Star Trek guest stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 17th 2008 11:05AM
Roger C. CarmelThe legacy of Star Trek includes many memorable guest stars, Joan Collins as Edith Keeler in "City on the Edge of Forever," Ricardo Montalban as Khan on "Space Seed," Jane Wyatt as Spock's mother on "Journey to Babel." And those are just the ones that come first to mind.

But what about the less celebrated stars who appeared on ST? There were many who made a great impression because of the larger than life character they were given to play, and the ability to seize the spotlight.

Here are five of my favorite, and most memorable, though less celebrated, Trek stars...

How I Met Your Mother: Aldrin Justice

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 23rd 2006 9:55PM
How I Met Your Mother(S02E06) Sometimes having guest stars on your sitcom is a boon; seeing well-known actors or other celebrities mix with the established cast is great to watch and makes the episode memorable. But a lot of other times, bringing in a guest star dampens the chemistry of that established cast and slows down the comedic flow of the show, almost bringing it to screeching halt.

This week's HIMYM episode has two guest stars: Bryan Cranston as Ted's touchy boss, and Jane Seymour as Marshall's testy law professor. And, in this case, one guest star gave us a good result and the other gave us a bad one. I'll tell you who's who after the jump. You might be surprised at who I thought was the chemistry killer.

My Name Is Earl season two -- an early look

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Sep 20th 2006 1:43PM

Jason Lee as Earl HickeyI managed to get a copy of the first three episodes of the new season of My Name Is Earl yesterday, and I watched the first episode "Very Bad Things" last night. After a successful first season and a summer of wondering how the show will evolve, I, at the very least, got a chance to get some perspective on how things will go.
