Saturday Night Live Best of Will FerrellTo include 'Saturday Night Live' on your resume can mean you are one of the world's best comics. This illustrious crew includes the likes of Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Steve Martin -- all of whom also have been immortalized in their very own 'Best of Saturday Night Live' DVDs.

However, no one has had extensive library of hilarious skits and moments like Will Ferrell does. So much so that this week marks the release of his third volume of 'Saturday Night Live: The Best of Will Ferrell.'

Jimmy Smits, Kathy Bates Series Picked Up by NBC; 'Mercy,' 'Trauma' Canceled

by Andrew Scott, posted May 14th 2010 3:25PM
Jimmy SmitsOn the heels of 'Law & Order's' cancellation, NBC announced today that it has picked up four new series for next season -- three dramas and one comedy -- and will be parting ways with newbie medical dramas 'Mercy' and 'Trauma.'

Among the dramas headed to the Peacock net is 'The Cape,' starring 'ER's' David Lyons as a policeman who is framed for a series of murders and is forced to go into hiding. Determined to be reunited with his family, Lyons' character becomes his son's favorite superhero ('The Cape') and quickly "takes the law into his own hands."

Meanwhile, 'West Wing' alum Jimmy Smits will return to the network in the drama 'Outlaw,' about a Supreme Court justice who quits his job to go work for the little man.

Rounding out the list of dramas is the latest legal series from David E. Kelley ('The Practice'; 'Ally McBeal'), 'Harry's Law.' The show stars Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates as a lawyer who unexpectedly starts her own firm with characters portrayed by Brittany Snow and Ben Chaplin.

Rock of Ages: Opening Night in Toronto
- Tuesday May 11, 6:30 pm ET, Citytv

Citytv presents a news special at the Toronto opening night of the musical 'Rock of Ages', playing at the Royal Alex. I'm not really sure what to make of this, to be honest. The cynic in me says it's hardly news, that it's Toronto-centric and reeks of brown-nosing. But on the other hand, I do like the idea of bringing a Toronto event to the whole country via the airwaves, and I love that an entertainment show is going to feature stage actors and producers we've probably never heard of instead of the same ten skinny blondes we usually see on the red carpet. And then there's the "face-melting hits" (according to the press release): songs by Asia, Journey, Styx, Pat Benatar and more.

Six NBC Shows on the Bubble

The past season was a tumultuous one for NBC, what with the Jay Leno experience turning the primetime schedule into a whirl. The fact that Leno's ten o'clock show was a disaster resulted in NBC scrambling to fill in during the second season. Fortunately, at least one legit hit has emerged -- 'Parenthood.'

Still, as the network contemplates the future, there's really six programs that could be called on the bubble, teetering between a pick up or a cancellation. So what is the likelihood that NBC will renew these shows? Here's our take:

'Miami Medical' - 'Pilot' Recap (Series Premiere)

(S01E01)
Like CBS's other medical drama for this TV season, 'Three Rivers,' 'Miami Medical' is very earnest and filled with moments that strive for poignancy. The fact that it doesn't succeed is less a reflection on the network than the creators. At least CBS gets credit for realizing that 'Miami Medical' was less that the sum of its aspirations and planted it in the little viewed Friday, 10 PM time slot.

Mercy, Irish and Italians FightWhat do you get when you put a bunch of Irish and Italian people in the same hospital waiting room? A big fight, that's what.

At least, that's what happened on 'Mercy' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) when the Fighting Irish got to live up to their name. Anyway, they were in the right place for all of those resulting cuts and scrapes. Kudos to Chloe for some kick-ass fire extinguisher skills.

Michael Imperioli Cast as Cop in ABC Drama

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 3rd 2010 12:44PM
michael_imperioli_nbc_headshotOn 'The Sopranos,' actor Michael Imperioli excelled at playing Christopher Moltisanti, a goodfella in every sense of the word. A made man. Definitely on the wrong side of the law. Since the HBO series has ended -- and even before that -- Imperioli has found work on the other side of the badge. He's doing it again. Michael Imperioli will star in '187 Detroit' for ABC, a new cop drama.

The premise of '187 Detroit' is kind of 'The Office' meets 'NYPD Blue' in Michigan. It's a funny take on a Detroit homicide squad if they were to have a documentary crew following them around on cases. Imperioli will be Fitch, the hot-tempered, veteran detective who boasts an impeccable record for closing cases and catching killers.
