Jimmy Smits Returning to TV in NBC Legal Drama

jimmy_smits_west_wing_flagIs it a step down for Jimmy Smits that he'll only be a Supreme Court Justice in a new NBC pilot? Some might think so since his last stint on NBC was as Congressman Matt Santos who became the President of the United States on the last season of 'The West Wing.' However, in the pilot that John Eisendrath is putting together, Jimmy Smits has agreed to play a judge for NBC.

Not any judge. The character is a strict interpreter of the constitution, a 'by the book' Supreme Court Justice (there are only nine at any one time), who steps down from the bench so he can return to the law as an attorney who specializes in fighting constitutional injustices.

Ally McBealYesterday, PopWatch broke what may be the most exciting DVD news since, well, ever: 'Ally McBeal' is finally coming to DVD.

So listen up, studios: Here are seven TV shows we're dying to see on DVD.

Best '80s TV Shows

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 13th 2009 6:00AM
Family TiesIt may have been the Me Decade.

But in TV land, the sisters were doin' it for themselves and finally getting respect as cops, war nurses and working moms; iconic shows like 'Hill Street Blues,' 'St. Elsewhere' and 'L.A. Law' would forever change (for the better) cop, medical and legal dramas; and no idea was too high concept to fill a primetime spot (time-travelling physicist? check; housewife-turned-CIA op? check; New York City beauty in love with a subterranean monster? check).

The bottom line: They all add up to 10 years of fine channel surfing -- and our awesome list of the 40 best series of the 1980s.

Seven retro network promos to leave you confused, delighted - VIDEOS

by Eliot Glazer, posted Dec 30th 2008 10:02AM
abcWhile ABC, NBC, and CBS have historically remained in a cutthroat battle for viewers, each network has shared one common trait: come the season of network promotional campaigns, all actors must be prepared to look absolutely ridiculous.

After the jump ... Remember this pop cultural gem (video below) that gained traction on the Net not too long ago? The sheer oddity of the clip alone forces us to ask ourselves several questions: do these people all live together? Why is Marla Gibbs dressed like an astronaut? Does Bea Arthur do everybody's shoppingl? CAN'T NELL CARTER JUST SIT DOWN AND REST HER FEET FOR A SECOND? (Seriously, give her a break!)

Corbin BernsenGSN has announced the pickup of a new gameshow called How Much is Enough hosted by actor Corbin Bernsen.

The show, which is produced by BBC Worldwide America, is a contest to see which contestant can win the most money without being the greediest. The game begins with five "Money Clocks" ranging in value from $1,000 to $5,000. In each round players secretly buzz in as the amount of money is shown on the clock in an attempt to capture the second-highest amount of money each time. Whoever rings in last, and scores the highest amount of cash goes home empty handed.

Hot guys cast in Old Christine, Lost

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 27th 2006 2:02PM
blair underwood; rodrigo santoroThe hunky Blair Underwood has signed on to play a recurring role as a "hunky new teacher" at Richie's school, on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Underwood joined the cast after a pilot he was in, called Company Town, didn't get picked up by the networks. Most recently, Underwood co-starred in NBC's failed LAX with Heather Locklear. I swear, he doesn't look like he's aged a single day since he was on LA Law.

In other casting news, that really hot Brazilian actor from Love Actually is joining the cast of Lost. His name is Rodrigo Santoro and, in case the name and the reference don't ring any bells, he played the co-worker who had the hots for Laura Linney in the movie. Not sure what role he's playing on Lost, but then again I don't really want to know in case it ruins something.
