Nancy Travis Was All Smiles Talking About 'Last Man Standing' on 'Good Day LA' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 25th 2011 11:30PM
Nancy Travis, 'Good Day LA'Nancy Travis was all smiles when she stopped by 'Good Day LA' (Weekdays 9AM PT on Fox) to talk about her new show with Tim Allen, 'Last Man Standing.' She talked about what a good time she's having with the show, and she's not the only one. With the show averaging more than 11 million viewers after three episodes, it looks like the audience and ABC are having a good time, too.

We did laugh at one of her responses. When she was told, "You do not play that standard common-sense wife with the buffoon husband," Travis responded with, "No, I go after him and call him on his stuff." Which, of course, is the textbook definition of the common-sense wife with the buffoon husband.

Kyle Chandler Could Join FX's 'Powers,' Juju Chang Exits 'GMA' and More TV News

Kyle ChandlerCoach and Mrs. Coach could be reunited soon -- sort of.

According to Deadline, 'Friday Night Lights' star Kyle Chandler is being courted to star in a new FX drama, 'Powers.' The show is a procedural that takes place in a world where superpowers are normal (not to be confused with TV Squad's most-anticipated fall pilot, '17th Precinct,' a procedural that takes place in a world where magic is normal), and Chandler is reportedly reading the script now.

Chandler's 'FNL' costar Connie Britton has already signed on to star in Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' at the network, meaning the Taylors could soon be network costars, if not on the same show. (Hey, take what you can get. It's way more real than those recurring 'FNL' dreams ...)

Gerard Butler Describes His Ideal First Date (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 17th 2010 1:30PM
According to Gerard Butler, his ideal first date involves either a spur-of-the-moment helicopter ride to an exciting destination, or something reminiscent of the Mike Myers film 'So I Married an Axe Murderer,' he said on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Doesn't that sound like fun, ladies?

Butler clarified the latter scenario by describing a charming scene from the movie where Myers and Nancy Travis go on a date in San Francisco and use everything they come across as part of their night out.

TBS loves Engvall

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 11th 2008 3:00PM
Bill Engvall ShowWhere are the family comedies these days? They're a rare commodity on the big three plus Fox, and even if you include the animated clans on The Family Guy and The Simpsons and American Dad, you can count the family-type comedy shows on one hand.

However, TBS has a throwback family comedy, one in The Cosby Show mode, and they're sticking with it. TBS's The Bill Engvall Show has just been given a third season renewal. The sitcom will be back in the summer 2009 with ten new episodes.

I've watched The Bill Engvall Show and enjoyed it. It's meant to evoke Cosby, but I also found a lot of Everybody Loves Raymond and Home Improvement in it as well, and that's a good thing. Engvall's a funny guy, and he's greatly aided in the show by sitcom vet Nancy Travis as his smart, attractive spouse.

The Bill Engvall Show -- An early look

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 12th 2007 10:32AM

Bill Engvall and Nancy Travis

I don't think I would be stretching the truth too much if I said that the family sitcom is pretty much dead on network television. I mean, with the exception of According to Jim and perhaps Two and a Half Men, there has been a dearth of successful family comedies on the air since the departure of Everybody Loves Raymond and Arrested Development a few years ago.

All the Bill Engvall you need

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 14th 2007 11:02AM

bill engvallAnna mentioned back in November that TBS was creating a pilot for Blue Collar comedian Bill Engvall, best known for his "here's your sign" routine. Now we know that the new series will be called The Bill Engvall Show (what else?) and will star Engvall and Nancy Travis. Engvall will play Will Pearson, a family counselor and father of a teenage daughter and two boys. Travis will play his wife, Susan.

Much like a majority of Engvall's comedy, the new show promises to be a simple, family-friendly comedy shot in typical multi-camera fashion in front of a studio audience. The series debuts sometime this summer.

Fans of Engvall's stand-up can also catch him March 25 at 9:00 p.m. on Comedy Central in a new special: Bill Engvall: Fifteen Degrees Off Cool.
