What to Watch: TV Picks for November 14 - 20

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 14th 2011 9:35AM

Bones - Thursday November 17, 9PM ET/PT, Global/Fox

I do enjoy it when 'Bones' decides to have a little bit of fun with their murder scenes. This week, they find their victim shrink-wrapped with a Prince Charming doll. Turns out, the woman worked for a toy company headed by guest Morgan Fairchild, who always adds a dash of creepy camp when she turns up. Meanwhile Sweets prepares for his gun certification, despite the fact that Booth still objects to him carrying a weapon.

Nancy GraceCable news legal expert Nancy Grace has found herself in some legal hot water of her own.

The CNN Headline News host was sued for $15 million for "not honoring an agreement to have her long-term associate, Patricia Caruso, act as executive producer of her new syndicated show 'Swift Justice,'" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Caruso alleges that she and Grace discussed a potential new show over a lunch meeting in 2008, which then turned into 'Swift Justice.' They supposedly had a verbal agreement to work together.

Sing 'Hallelujah,' because 'Lost' vet Terry O'Quinn is returning to TV. Well, at least if his new ABC pilot gets picked up. The former John Locke will play the main villain in Marc Cherry's hourlong drama about good and evil forces in a small Southern town. [TV Line]

The Parents Television Council is at it again, this time targeting the ABC pilot 'Good Christian Bitches.' The organization slammed the show as an "affront to women" and denigrating the "world's largest faith." [Deadline]

Singer Ciara is picking up some pom poms for a guest spot on The CW's 'Hellcats.' The singer tweeted that she's in Vancouver filming for the show. No word on what kind of character she'll be playing, or if she's appearing as herself. [Perez Hilton]

Ann-Margret joins Jaclyn Smith on 'Law & Order: SVU'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 23rd 2010 1:02PM
Ann-MargretWell, this episode of 'Law & Order: SVU' is turning into a greatest hits of sexy women from years gone by. Actually, that's not quite accurate. Both of these women are still quite attractive. We already told you that former 'Charlie's Angels' star Jaclyn Smith will be appearing in an episode of the NBC drama on March 31. Now another famous star has been added to the episode.

Ann-Margret will appear in the same episode. TV Guide says that she'll play a woman who starred in commercials in the 1970s who gets involved in the case that Stabler and Benson are working on. Smith will play a detective involved in the same case. And if that's not enough beautiful TV women for you, what if we add Susan Anton and Morgan Fairchild to the mix? This episode is shaping up to be more 'Diagnosis: Murder' or 'Murder She Wrote' than 'Law & Order: SVU,' but it sounds like fun.

Well, I don't know if any episode of any 'Law & Order' show can be described as "fun," but this sounds like it could come close.

Nip/Tuck: Manny Skerritt

Katee Sackhoff as Dr. Teddy Rowe on Nip/Tuck.
(S05E19) "Namaste home at night and play with that thing, oh yeah!" - Nurse Linda

I clearly don't have the same set of skills as Manny Skerritt or else I wouldn't own a TV and would therefore have never seen this episode of Nip/Tuck. As this week's patient-du-jour, Manny "I've got a Tyrannosaurus prick" Skerritt reminded me of how funny this show can actually be. The guy that got breast implants in season two comes to mind. However, if there's one lesson to learn from Manny's "addiction," it's that just because it feels good doesn't make it right.

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Sensei

by Richard Keller, posted Dec 1st 2008 11:26PM

(S02E09) This season we've met Sarah's high school nemesis, who turned out to be a rogue spy, Chuck's ex-girlfriend, who turned out to be a rogue spy, and we had a return of Bryce, who was a spy from an opposing agency. This week, we met John Casey's former sensei, who is now a rogue spy. This brings me to a few conclusions...

First, the CIA really has a horrible retention program for its employees (most likely due to the pudding cups being eliminated from the cafeteria). Second, other than Chuck, his immediate family, and the employees at Buy More, everyone else is a rogue agent. Therefore, this little trio of agents will be eliminating the bad seeds from California for the next 22 seasons. Well, at least there's the job security.

Katee Sackhoff joins Nip/Tuck, and other casting news

by Brett Love, posted May 19th 2008 8:24AM

Morgan FairchildWith Battlestar ending, and Bionic Woman ended, the lovely and talented Ms. Sackhoff could use a new gig. Why not Nip/Tuck? Sackhoff is set to join the FX series for a four episode arc as Dr. Theodora "Teddy" Lowe. She's said to present a challenge for Sean (Dylan Walsh).

But wait, there's more. What's better than Katee Sackhoff on Nip/Tuck? How about some Morgan Fairchild? She will be appearing for one episode as a movie star. I suppose we could debate which is actually better, but for me, there is just something about Morgan Fairchild. Whichever you prefer, both are nice additions for the show. Read on past the jump for more casting notes from Caprica, Warehouse 13, and that crazy sounding House spin-off idea.

MyNetwork may drop the telenovela thing

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 18th 2006 8:32AM
morgan fairchild; bo derek; fashion houseAccording to The Hollywood Reporter, MyNetwork is considering scrapping its current all-telenovela programming. The network is a Fox creation to keep WB/UPN affiliates alive after the networks merged to create The CW. MyNetwork debuted in September and it airs thirteen hours of dramas, five days a week, with recaps on Saturdays. The first two telenovelas on MyNetwork are Fashion House, starring the very plastic Bo Derek and the equally plastic Morgan Fairchild, and Desire, which each averaged a measly .7 rating in their first thirteen weeks on the air. New drama Wicked Wicked Games, starring Tatum O'Neal, and others have rated poorer than that since they debuted earlier this month.

Does anybody watch the telenovelas on MyNetwork? I hear the promos for them all the time on the radio and they sound so terrible... and not good terrible but just terrible terrible.

Catching up with Summer Glau

by Brett Love, posted Oct 22nd 2006 1:02PM
Summer GlauNewstalkZB did an interview with Summer Glau as a lead up to her appearance at Auckland's Armageddon Pulp Expo. You can get audio of the conversation at their site. She talks about some of her recent TV work, including The Unit and The 4400. They also touch on what kind of projects she would like to tackle in the future. Her dream list involves a western, a period piece, and a movie about ballet. The tasty nugget from the interview is Summer's mention that she and Joss Whedon are "talking about doing a little something together."

But if just hearing Summer isn't enough for you, tonight you can see her too. She stars in The Initiation Of Sarah, which is part of ABC Family's "13 Nights Of Halloween." It looks to be another of the network's cheesy, but fun, movies. Sisters Sarah (Mika Boorem) and Lyndsey (Summer Glau) are starting their first year of college. While pledging sororities they manage to get pulled into a battle of good vs. evil. The cast also includes Morgan Fairchild, Jennifer Tilly, Joanne Garcia (Reba), and Tessa Thompson (Veronica Mars). If you like that ABC Family style, it should be worth a look.

"Supersoaps" coming to myNetworkTV

by Brett Love, posted Sep 5th 2006 11:09AM
Bo Derek of Fashion HouseAs we all get ready to welcome in the new CW network, it stands to reason that the merger must have left a few stations out there holding the bag. What is to become of them? The answer for some is that they will now be a part of News Corporation's myNetworkTV. The network begins airing its two original programs Tuesday, September 5th.

Those programs are Desire and Fashion House. Modeled after the popular telenovelas, each show will run five days a week, Monday through Friday, with a recap on Saturday. Rather than the endless run that normal American soap operas have, the myNetworkTV shows are each planned to run 65 episodes. As they come crashing to what promises to be a hectic conclusion after 13 weeks, two new shows will debut to run for the next 13.

Desire kicks off the night at 8PM. It is the story of brothers Louis and Alex Thomas. On the run from the mob, they make their way to Los Angeles. There, they both fall for the same woman and complications ensue as they deal with that and the mob gets ever closer. Desire is adapted from 2004's Mesa Para Tres (Table For Three).
