The Big Lie on ''Til Death' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jun 20th 2010 11:30PM
The Big Lie on ''Til Death'Well, this is the end of ''Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox). It's the last episode ever of the sitcom, so you might even say that this is the "death" of ''Til Death.' But we would never make an obvious joke like that.

The show has chronicled the 20-year marriage between Eddie and Joy Stark (played by Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher). Every marriage has its ups and downs, of course. And perhaps in every marriage, there's a dark secret hidden from the other partner. Or maybe not. But Eddie, at any rate, does have a dark secret -- which involves a lie that he made to his wife. However, his lie is a little odder than most.

Gilbert Gottfried on ''Til Death' (VIDEO)

Gilbert Gottfried on ''Til Death'Gilbert Gottfried is perhaps best known as "that comedian with the annoying voice." On the most recent episode of ''Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox), Gottfried uses that voice to excellent effect. He barges into Joy's (Joely Fisher's) home, and begins a conversation involving breast size and, well, male member size. Good stuff!

'Til Death' Is Really, Really Over

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 24th 2010 9:50AM
'Til DeathFox has confirmed some news that has been in the cards for a while: ''Til Death' has been cancelled after four seasons. Like so many other shows before it (*cough*cough* 'According To Jim'), it has avoided the axe for much longer than anticipated. ''Til Death' was even given an honor usually given to only science fiction on Fox: the Friday Night Death Slot.

Actually, by the time the show even got to its fourth season, the only consistent part of it was Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Eddie Kaye Thomas and Kat Foster, the next door newlywed couple that was half of the central premise of the original show, weren't even there anymore.

The best part of the Variety article was Brad Garrett's response to the situation. When they mention the showing having a 0.4 rating, he replied, "Give me a month and I'll take it to a zero." The network responded with dead silence. Those people have no sense of humor.

Poor Brad. At least he has those 7-Up commercials to keep him going.

Brad Pitt Proposes to Joy on 'Til Death' (VIDEO)

Til Death, Brad PittA porn mustache on Brad Pitt in real life is just ... ugh (though, let's face it, it's better than that Allen Ginsberg beard he's been sporting). But even worse when he's a cartoon character.

That's just what we got on 'Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox), when an animated Pitt proposed to an animated Joy. His kids were there, but no sign of Angelina Jolie. Just as well. She probably would have pulled a 'Lara Croft' and kicked Joy's ass. Hmmm ...

'Til Death: The new According to Jim?

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 28th 2009 7:01PM
Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher of 'Til DeathEvery year, there's a show that's on the top of viewers' "You mean that's still on the air?" list. Whether the show was good or not, it was one that hung on in obscurity for years and years, getting just enough of an audience to keep it going. You know the shows I'm talking about: The Facts of Life. Wings. Yes, Dear. Matlock.Just Shoot Me. George Lopez. King of the Hill. JAG. Heck, even the great Scrubs was at the top of this list for many people for awhile (still might be for some).

But for the last five years or so, the reigning champ of that list was According to Jim, both because of its inexplicable longevity and its questionable quality. Now, with Jim Belushi's vanity project finally gone, it looks like another show has taken its place: FOX's 'Til Death.

The network just doesn't want to let the show die. Every time the show is in a low-rated slot, the network moves it to one that's higher-profile in an attempt to boost ratings. Case in point: the Brad Garrett sitcom will be replacing Brothers on Sundays at 7, starting January 10, after football's regular season is over.

Fox wants Dollhouse to fail early

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 16th 2009 9:10AM
DollhouseFox has given the release date for the premiere of Dollhouse, as well as their new musical comedy Glee and several other shows. However, I wanted to focus on Dollhouse for a moment.

Once again sitting in the Friday night Death Slot of 9 PM, this time it doesn't even have a lead-in of another sci-fi drama. This time, starting September 18, the lead is 'Til Death starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher.

The only reasonable hypothesis I can reasonably come up with is that Fox wants to broadcast all thirteen episodes of season 2 during the 2009 calendar year before they finally pull the plug on this show. This would mean that the entire run of Dollhouse would have been during 2009.

In short, if you really want the show to make it to a third season, I recommend buying a hundred copies per household member of the DVD set for season one. Otherwise, I don't see it happening.

Til Death dumped by Fox...for two weeks...for now

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 30th 2008 12:16PM
Til Death windowPrimetime Wednesday seems to be the toughest night of all for TV programmers. There's not one network that seems to do particularly well in the 8-9 p.m. time slot, and the juggling has begun. Fox yanked Do Not Disturb weeks ago, admitting it was a dud.

Now the Brad Garrett-Joely Fisher sitcom Til Death will be off the air for two weeks, effective immediately. In that time slot, instead, we'll be seeing more House, albeit repeats. Still, you watch, those reruns will do markedly better than the sitcoms did.

Til Death, to be frank, has regressed this year. I defended the renewal of the show when Fox gave it a third season, based on the episodes I watched last spring. But the comedy has really strained since its season premiere in September. There's no other way to put it -- Death is in the death throes and should be put out of its misery. This two week hiatus should be the end of the series.

The Inn is in, but Kelsey & Patty are dumped

by Allison Waldman, posted May 10th 2008 12:36PM
Patty and KelseyFox has made the call, and it's a big "see ya later" for Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton. But their loss is someone else's gain. The pilot for the Jason Bateman directed comedy series The Inn has been picked up for a 13-week commitment, while Back to You has been axed. The Brad Garrett-Joely Fisher sitcom, Til Death, meanwhile, has been given another year.

Bateman, who starred in Arrested Development -- the Emmy-award winning comedy that the network dumped unceremoniously because of low ratings -- was behind the camera for The Inn pilot. The show, which is about the haves and have-nots in a fancy, five-star New York City hotel, has a promising cast of funny folks including Niecy Nash (Reno 911!), Jerry O'Connell (who looks like Jason's twin), and the really hilarious Jesse Tyler Ferguson (remember him on The Class -- he was so funny!).

FOX's press tour gala - Simpsons, swag, Santa Monica - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 24th 2007 10:02AM

Fox

Two days of presentations from FOX wrapped up with yet another outdoor "all-stars" party. FOX held its gala at the Santa Monica Pier just in time for out-of-town TCA members to see the sunset and the Pacific Ocean.

While there was plenty of swag in sight (mostly various sizes of dolls from The Simpsons), you had to earn it!

Party attendees played carnival games (ring toss, shooting baskets, knocking down bottles with baseballs, popping balloons with darts) in order to take home prizes.

Fox orders up more episodes of 'Til Death, Standoff

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 16th 2006 7:05PM
standoffFox has picked up the back nine episodes of the new comedy, 'Til Death, starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. Even though the show hasn't done much in its Thursday night timeslot, Fox thinks there is an audience out there for this sitcom. Fox thinks that 24 and American Idol will draw in more viewers to the network when they begin in January.

The network has also ordered six more episodes of Standoff, starring Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt (and Gina Torres for all you Firefly fans). A rep for the network says it didn't order the full back nine (considered a full season) because there isn't going to be any room for a full season once 24 and American Idol begin.

Fox extends 'Til Death's hiatus

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 3rd 2006 2:23PM
'til death cast'Til Death will stay off the air for an extra week after the World Series because star Brad Garrett is holding up production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Garrett was very unhappy with the latest script. That's actually a good reason to postpone a show... to make the script better. Unfortunately for Brad, it might not matter that much. The show is taking a beating on Thursday nights against Survivor and Ugly Betty. It'll be interesting to see that episode when it does get made, to see what Garrett considers a 'good' script.

'Til Death: Pilot (series premiere)

by Tom Biro, posted Sep 8th 2006 11:57AM
Brad Garrett and Joley Fisher of 'Til Death(S01E01) A lot of times when a big show, especially a sitcom, goes off the air, we see a series of spinoffs, or almost spinoffs, leading from it. When Everybody Loves Raymond left the airwaves at CBS, you could have seen it coming that Brad Garrett's character would have been perfect to have on his own. Well, howabout the best of that world, plus a whole new gig. FOX's 'Til Death plays Eddie, a schoolteacher whose new neighbor is a newlywed (12 days in or so) who also happens to be the new vice principal at the school Eddie works at.

If you'd seen any of the advertisements for the show, then you have probably gotten a pretty good idea of the style of humor on the show. That isn't to say that you know all the jokes already at all, but it's fun to see the complete and total difference between Eddie, his wife Joy (such a happy name!), and newlyweds Jeff and Steph (oh so cute with the rhyming names!). Even with all the jaded comments that Eddie makes about marriage, he and Joy have a really great time together, even if it is while they are eating snack food on the couch and watching Ellen together. You can actually see the money lines just flowing out of this show, with about halfway through the premiere being the moment when Jeff sees that all the things Eddie believes will happen to their marriage aren't just figments of his imagination. No pool table for you, young man!

fox logoLast, but certainly not least, we are giving you a preview of the shows that FOX has planned for the fall season. We've already discussed ABC, CBS, and NBC's new shows. Let's just say that our TiVos are going to be working overtime this fall.

For FOX, we're covering comedies Happy Hour, 'Til Death, and The Winner. And the dramas are Justice, Standoff, Vanished, and The Wedding Album. The network was kind enough to send us the DVD screeners but, since we can't technically "review" them, we're just going to give you a short preview and our initial thoughts.

FOX picks up Brad Garrett's new sitcom

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 28th 2006 11:52AM
Brad GarrettWell, FOX isn't waiting for May upfronts (when all the networks release their fall schedules) to announce that they have picked up two new shows for the fall. One is Til Death, which stars Everybody Loves Raymond's Brad Garrett as a married man (Joely Fisher is his wife) who lives next to a younger married couple. Vanished is another conspiracy drama, and stars Christopher Egan, Gale Harold, Rebecca Gayheart, and John Allen Nelson.

In other fall news, NBC has picked up all of the Law and Order shows for yet another season.
