Starz, FX Pass on 'Kennedys' Miniseries, Former 'Big Brother' Contestants Face Prison Time and More

by Chris Harnick, posted Jan 11th 2011 3:00PM
The KennedysHistory's ousted 'The Kennedys' miniseries continues to look for a home: Starz and FX have passed on airing the series.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, with Starz and FX out of the running, there are very few options for the controversial project. Disney and NBC Universal executives reportedly had a role in having the series yanked, so their networks are out.

HBO is working on its own project on the Kennedy legacy, leaving Showtime as one of the last cable networks that could save the project. Another possibility is releasing the series directly to DVD. Given the buzz around it, sales and/or ratings will probably be high.

"Most of the cable nets are part of huge media companies, so they're all subject to the same pressures," Brad Adgate, media buyer and TV analyst for Horizon Media, said. "This might go straight to video."

'Parks and Recreation' - 'Galentine's Day' Recap

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 12th 2010 1:16AM
parks and recreation(S02E16) Ron Swanson nailed it tonight. I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with Justin (Justin Theroux), and Swanson summed it up perfectly: he's a tourist. Justin is really only interested in stories. It's been bugging me the entire time he's been on the show, because he seems like a perfectly nice guy in some scenes and a total jerk in others -- but now it all comes together.

Also nailing it? Andy's band. I not only loved his songs (I would totally make them my Valentine's soundtrack), but I enjoyed his befuddlement with the entire situation and his frustration with not being able to tell if the gig was a success or not, due to the lack of ladies flashing him.

Review: Parks and Recreation - Leslie's House

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jan 22nd 2010 12:29AM
parks and rec
(S02E15) So, Leslie's still a little bit crazy, huh? Have we really never seen the inside of her house before? That seems kind of weird to me, but I don't think the writers would have randomly made her a hoarder if we had been in a previously clean place. Anyway, I love how they used her messy house to set up the procession of rec center teachers coming into her house to help with the dinner party. I love it when Leslie's personal life is at odds with her professional one. She wants to do the right thing all of the time, but she is only human after all, and Justin is really hot.

Justin Theroux Lands Major Recurring Role on 'Parks and Recreation'

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Nov 17th 2009 11:26AM
Multihyphenate actor-writer-director Justin Theroux is all set to park himself on TV next year -- and TV, if Theroux's track record is any indication, will be so much the better for it. Writer Michael Ausiello reports on his Entertainment Weekly blog that the 38-year-old big-and-small screen star is joining the cast of NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.'

While he'll be playing things all platonic opposite Rashida Jones' Ann (who is playing things all more-than-platonic with Paul Schneider's Mark), Theroux is a very possible love interest for Amy Poehler's Leslie.
