Family groups are going to just love Accidentally on Purpose

I was never a big fan of Dharma & Greg (and by "never a big fan" I mean "I really disliked it"), but I'll give Jenna Elfman's new sitcom a shot. It's about a thirtysomething film critic who gets pregnant after a one-night stand. Family and parents groups, you can open your e-mail programs right now if you want to get your media campaign to get this show canceled underway early. Here's a sneak peek at the show.

More about CBS's plans for the new season

Jenna hairWe're still over 24 hours away from CBS making their official announcements about the new season, but apparently pre-upfront news is as plentiful as upfront news, so here we are with more information about what CBS will be telling us tomorrow. In addition to the already leaked three dramas that are a go -- Alex O'Loughlin in Three Rivers, Julianna Margulies in The Good Wife, and LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell in the NCIS spin-off -- today we've learned about three more new shows.

Jenna Elfman is back on TV with a new sitcom. In 2006, she tried a CBS comedy called Courting Alex that failed to click, but she had a five-year run on ABC with Dharma & Greg. The actress toplines Accidentally on Purpose, playing a film critic (and I hope whatever publication she writes for doesn't go belly-up like so many others these days) who accidentally gets pregnant after a fling with a younger man. I'm laughing already.

It's a boy for Jenna Elfman

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 30th 2007 4:06PM
jenna elfmanIn other baby news, actress Jenna Elfman gave birth to a boy last week. She and her husband, Bodhi, named their son Story Elias. He weighed 7 pounds, two ounces.

Jenna has been laughing through her pregnancy and birth. When she was late term, she did this trash-talking basketball video with her belly hanging out. And the official statement about her birth is just as funny. It says Story is already a fan of "classical music, a clean diaper, mom's boobs and long naps. Story wants to give big props to his mom for all her hard work." Cute.

Hopefully we'll be seeing Jenna on television sometime soon. She had a short-lived show, Courting Alex, last season but it wasn't as good as she is.

Jenna Elfman and her baby play basketball - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 23rd 2007 9:03AM

jenna elfmanIf you've been searching the Web today trying to find video of a pregnant woman playing basketball, I'd like to say, "welcome."

At the bottom of this post, courtesy of Funny or Die, is a short clip featuring actress Jenna Elfman taking part in a game of B-ball, complete with trash talk and everything. That might be kinda humorous, but add in the fact that she's also pregnant and I'd say that's pretty damn funny. Elfman has a lot of great lines, but my favorite comes toward the end as she's walking off the court and tosses the ball away.

I'd love to see a whole series done this way, with Elfman playing a different sport in every video. I've always been a fan of Elfman's, though I never really liked Dharma and Greg. Funny, that.

Anyway, check out the video below. It does contain some bad language, so be warned.

Brothers and Sisters: Game Night

by Jen Creer, posted Apr 16th 2007 1:32AM
Sarah and Justin Walker(S01E19) Meh. I really like Brothers and Sisters and I am a really big cheerleader of this show. But this episode wasn't really stellar. I am a big enough geek that I have done some background research on the show and I know that the episodes don't all have the same writers, and perhaps that explains some of the unevenness in the episodes. I guess they aren't going to let me come and hang out with them in LA if I say that this episode wasn't the best example of writing, are they? No, wait, that's not fair. It was just a fairly contrived episode.

Television isn't giving up on Jenna Elfman... or vice versa

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 2nd 2006 8:04AM
jenna elfmanCBS has a lot of confidence in Jenna Elfman. Her comedy, Courting Alex, didn't even last for half a season on CBS, but the network is already creating another show just for her. She has reportedly signed a development deal with CBS and is now searching for a scriptwriter.

Is Elfman worth it? She's hot and funny and, according to Joel, she's "sexy in a non-threatening way". Is she worth hanging onto?

Mid-season television preview

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 1st 2006 8:02PM
Now that 2005 is behind us, we can look forward to new and returning favorite shows all this month on television. What will you be watching?

South Beach (Wednesdays, UPN) Two hot, New York City working-class bachelors leave the big city behind to follow one of their girlfriends to South Beach, FL, only to discover that she has a new boyfriend. They get mixed up with the rich and famous in the club scene. After viewing a sneak preview on UPN's website, it looks like a guilty pleasure like The O.C., except with more sex and no high school. Jennifer Lopez is the executive producer and it co-stars Vanessa Williams as a club owner and mother to one of the main characters. South Beach premieres on Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 8 pm.

Does Jenna Elfman deserve another show?

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 31st 2005 8:42AM
Jenna Elfman in Courting AlexIf you've been watching CBS a lot lately (especially if you're watching football), you probably haven't been able to avoid the ads for Courting Alex, a new sitcom starring Jenna Elfman. You don't really learn anything about the show, as the ads only show Jenna dancing in hot pants and a bikini top, hair and make-up done up to the maximum. Then as the dance music blares and she wriggles around, Jenna stops and says, "Why am I dressed like this? I play a lawyer!" and she flirtingly walks off-screen.
