New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 23rd 2009 6:00PM
Alfred Hitchcock PresentsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Finally, season 4 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents is on DVD. I say finally because this season contains one of my favorite episodes of any TV series ever, "Man with a Problem," with Elizabeth Montgomery, Gary Merrill, and Peter Mark Richman. It has a great twist ending (you can watch it here). I have to start buying this show on DVD.

The Golden Age of Television DVD is a Criterion Collection set and includes some great live TV episodes, including "Marty," "Days of Wine and Roses," "The Comedian," "Requiem for a Heavyweight," "No Time For Sergeants," "A Wind from the South," and "Bang The Drum Slowly." Also comes with extensive commentaries and interviews and a booklet.

If Heather Locklear Can't Save 'Melrose Place,' What Can?

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 19th 2009 1:29PM
The CW was hoping the triumphant return of Heather Locklear, the eternal "special guest star" of the original 'Melrose Place,' would boost the alarmingly low ratings of the CW reboot. But, alas, it seems that not even a scheming vixen like Amanda Woodward can do much to help the struggling series.

The Live Feed
is reporting that Locklear's appearance on the tenth episode of 'Melrose Place,' which aired on Tuesday, had little to no effect on the ratings. In fact, the show was only up 14 percent from last week's ratings, which were at an all-time low for the series.

Heather Locklear was nominated for four-consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama) for her performance as Amanda Woodward, the ambitious and manipulative head of D&D Advertising, in the original 'Melrose Place.' The series ran for seven seasons on Fox from 1992-1999.

Melrose Place: Cahuenga - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 18th 2009 1:02PM
LocklearWell, last night was the BIG night on the new Melrose Place, the return of Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear). Judging from Locklear's entrance, she really did shake up things on the show.

A question for fans of the original: did this make you watch this episode even though you weren't watching the new show? And for fans of the new show who really aren't familiar with the original: are you excited by Locklear being on the show?

What to Watch: November 16 - 22

Melrose Place (Wednesday, November 18, 10 pm, Global/CW)

From the sweeps guest-star pool, the new 'Melrose' has reeled in a mighty big fish. Heather Locklear reprises her role as Amanda Woodward tonight, and she starts things off by walking into her agency and axing half the staff, including Caleb. I want to stand up and cheer just writing about it. Basically, Locklear is gonna come in and run a clinic. Topics include scaring the crap out of employees, how to wear a mini skirt, and how not to get trapped on a sinking ship of a show.

Here's the first look at Heather Locklear's return to Melrose Place

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 13th 2009 2:02PM
Can Heather Locklear save the new Melrose Place? Who knows. But she makes her big return as Amanda next week, and here's the scene. By the way the staff looks at her when she's walking down the hall it's like she rose from the dead or something. Not sure why the other blond in the scene turns around and the first thing she looks at are the Amanda's shoes.

What are the odds your favorite (or least favorite) show will be canceled?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2009 2:30PM
HankA couple of weeks ago, I did a post about the shows that were "on the bubble," the ones in danger of being canceled. Now AOL TV has given the odds on what shows might not be coming back.

A lot of shows on the list won't surprise us: Hank, The Forgotten, Numb3rs, Gary Unmarried, and 'Til Death (each either gets low ratings or has been on for a while), but there are several that I think will actually make it to a another season, including The Good Wife and Parks and Recreation.

TV Shows Most Likely to Be Canceled: We Made the Odds, Now Place Your Bets

by Bryan Enk, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:11PM

It seems like just yesterday we were greeting the lineup of the 2009-2010 television season; every show was equal, and no show had a better chance at success than any other. What a difference a few weeks make, as now some series are already looking down the barrel of a shotgun, ready to be canceled with barely a few episodes out the gate. Television is a cutthroat world indeed -- here we look at the series that are currently on thin ice, and the odds that they'll come out the other side.

Don't agree with our odds? Let us know!

ABC:

'Ugly Betty'
It wasn't long ago that 'Ugly Betty' had its supporters in droves, proclaiming its brilliance to the heavens. Now, alas, the show seems to have been abandoned, allegedly returning this season only so it has enough episodes in the vault to qualify for syndication. Which it does, so there!
Odds of Cancellation: 2 to 1

The Simpsons vs. 'Melrose Place': Which Side Are You On?

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 3rd 2009 3:00PM
Ashlee SimpsonIt's the Simpsons (the family, not the Fox animated series) vs. 'Melrose Place' -- and it's starting to get ugly.

Very ugly.

The latest salvo: Today, an anonymous source from the show blasted Ashlee Simpson-Wentz on Fox411, claiming that "Ashlee was kicked off 'Melrose Place' because she was a total diva on set, late all the time, and deeply disliked by fellow cast members.''

Simpson-Wentz has been under fire all week. Yesterday, another anonymous 'Melrose'-er told US Mag that the show hired her "because they needed a good name to help create buzz but she was embarrassingly bad. Producers cut her down as much as possible.''

Straight Actors, Gay Characters: Our Faves

by Liane Bonin, posted Nov 2nd 2009 7:30PM
It's a good (or at least a slightly better) year to play gay on prime time TV, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

Eighteen regular characters on scripted TV are either gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, an increase of 2.6 percent over last season. Of course, not every character that is gay is played by someone who is. Here's a look at some of the straight guys who aren't afraid to play against personal preference and buck musty old stereotypes at the same time.

That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power.

Very afraid.

CW Orders More 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Melrose Place'

by Scott Harris, posted Oct 22nd 2009 2:45PM
Vampire Diaries It's a good day for the walking dead, as The CW has announced episode orders for both 'Vampire Diaries' and 'Melrose Place.'

The news comes as no surprise for 'Vampire Diaries', which has been picked up for a full season. The series, which follows the lives and afterlives of a group of young humans and vampires, is adapted from a popular line of novels and has become one of the network's few breakout hits.

More Vampire Diaries to be forthcoming

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 22nd 2009 8:02AM
The Vampire DiariesThis vampire thing could be getting to the point of oversaturation. Bram Stoker is to blame for inventing the concept. However, vampire fans and those that frequent Hot Topic can rejoice because the CW has ordered a full season of the freshman series The Vampire Diaries. This is opposed to the still-struggling revamp of Melrose Place which has only had five additional episodes requested of it.

Between True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and the ever-immortal Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which I still count despite being long off the air), you'd think television has had enough of our fanged friends. Perhaps other series should start involving vampires in order to boost ratings.
