'Switched at Birth' Stars Lea Thompson and Katie Leclerc Preview Their New Show

Lea Thompson, Katie Leclerc, Switched at BirthBeing switched at birth isn't exactly an experience many people can relate to.

But Lea Thompson, star of ABC Family's new series 'Switched at Birth' (premieres Mon., June 6 at 9PM), assures AOL TV there is plenty in the series, about two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally brought home from the hospital by the wrong families, that will feel familiar to viewers.

"A lot of families have adoptive children, egg donors -- it's all about nature versus nurture, and whether you love someone just because they're your blood or whether you love someone because of the experiences you had with them," she says. "I think everybody can relate to that. I certainly can. For my character, I think she's just like 'Oh my gosh, great! There's more people in my family that I can love!'"

I'm worried about Jane Doe

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 28th 2008 3:00PM

Lea ThompsonSo what did you do yesterday? I spent the entire Sunday watching detective movies on The Hallmark Channel. Of course, when I say "detective movies" it sounds like I was watching old film noir flicks from the 40s and 50s. Actually, I was watching Murder, She Wrote, Perry Mason movies, and Matlock.

Yes, I have the social life of a 70 year-old woman.

I've always been a sucker for these shows, going back to the NBC Mystery Movie and Columbo and McMillan and Wife. Those shows were probably better produced and written than the stuff you see on Hallmark Channel, but I think the new shows are quite entertaining and fun, and it's good to see favorite familiar faces on TV again: the McBride movies with John Larroquette, the Murder 101 movies with Dick Van Dyke, and the TV movie series I'd like to talk about, Jane Doe.

To put it simply, I'm worried about Jane Doe.

Celebrity Duets: 7 Perform

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 7th 2006 11:17PM

Wayne Brady, host of Celebrity Duets(S01E02) Welcome to the second review of Celebrity Duets, now on at its regular time. Thanks for sticking with me, despite the poor decision I made last week when I thought Lucy Lawless should have been the celebrity to be let go from the competition. From the comments I read you thought that she did much better than I did. Well, you won't have to worry about that now, because I will only be covering the talent portion of the show. The judging will either be covered by another one of our talented TV Squad writers (beautiful people one and all), or not at all.

So, without further ado . . .
