Fall TV's Biggest and Best Guest Stars

by AOL TV Staff, posted Sep 6th 2011 2:00PM
Ray Romano, Charisma Carpenter, Seth RogenWhile some shows have lured famous movie stars into leading roles, other shows are taking a more temporary approach this fall with big-name guest stars booked for short-term stints on the small screen.

Fall TV will host several major reunions that you definitely won't want to miss. Terry O'Quinn will head back to the island for a stint alongside former 'Lost' costar Daniel Dae Kim on 'Hawaii Five-0,' while Ray and Debra are back together (sort of) when Ray Romano stops by 'The Middle' to visit his former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' costar Patricia Heaton. And let's not forget 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters playing a married couple on an episode of 'Supernatural' this season.

Wanna know who else is heading to TV this fall? Check out some more of the biggest and best guest stars, including 'The Wire' alum Michael K. Williams (Omar!), Oscar-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson and crooner Josh Groban in AOL TV's fall guest star gallery.

'Parks and Recreation' Season 3, Episode 12 Recap

by Joel Keller, posted May 6th 2011 1:00AM
'Parks and Recreation' - 'Eagleton'
['Parks and Recreation' - 'Eagleton']

Sometimes the simplest episodes of a sitcom are the better ones. Even though 'Eagleton' wasn't as jam-packed with laughs as some 'Parks' episodes have been, it was one of my favorites of the season, mainly because a lot of the humor came from what we've learned about Leslie Knope -- and to a lesser extent, Ron Swanson -- to this point.

We know that Leslie loves Pawnee like no one else, but most of all, she's a loyal and attentive friend (despite what Slate.com may think). So to find out that she had a friend that betrayed her makes things very interesting; we want to see how Leslie reacts to someone who's done her wrong.

It turns out that she doesn't react very well. From spiteful old photos to tossing garbage to stuffing used coffee filters down someone's pants during a fight, we found out that you don't want to cross Leslie Knope. Ever.

Craig Ferguson, Parker PoseyOn 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Parker Posey told a story about a dream she had with a counting sheep. The sheep was counting, not her.

Ok, the story was totally lame, except for the part where Craig Ferguson called it sexy. "If you're Scottish, it's a sexy dream." We swear, Ferguson is always much more entertaining than his guests.

Bored to Death: The Case of the Stolen Skateboard

Parker Posey
(S01E04) "I'm almost done. Just three more tugs!" - Ray

After I screened the first three episodes of Bored to Death early last month, I had resigned to not watch it ever again. For the most part, save for Ted Danson's performance, there wasn't much I found funny about the show. Add in last week's weirdo installment featuring Jim Jarmusch and I wasn't sure what to think. Given the premise of the show, last week's episode didn't even feel like the same program. It was like they took a script from something else and just had the Bored to Death ensemble act it out.

But then HBO went and renewed it for a second season and I figured, hey - maybe I'll cover the rest of the season for TV Squad. Well, I'm glad I did. Despite numerous shortcomings, "The Case of the Stolen Skateboard" is easily the best episode of the series thus far. And Ted Danson? Still very funny.

The What the *#@#%! Were They Thinking? Award nominees

by Joel Keller, posted May 30th 2008 2:02PM
TVS AwardsWhen Keith and I were discussing some of the awards that we were going to do for the TV Squad Awards, we initially thought that doing an award about miscasting was going to get us a ton of nominees. Then we started thinking about it, and we couldn't come up with too many names off the tops of our heads. It seemed like our readers were equally flummoxed, as our call for considerations got less nominees than many of the other categories. I guess casting directors and producers are doing a much better job these days, since it seems like Elizabeth Röhm-esque casting disasters are happening less often.

But some names did emerge, which I'll list after the jump. The Squadders will choose the winner, and you'll get a chance to select the Readers' Choice for this award in the poll at the end of the list. So, here are the four people whose casting made us wonder just what the heck people in Hollywood are thinking:

FOX cancels Jezebel James; no one is surprised

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 24th 2008 7:04PM
The Return of Jezebel JamesWell, this isn't a big surprise: TV Guide's Mike Ausiello has just found out from FOX that The Return of Jezebel James has been canceled after three episodes. Jezebel James was the first project for executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino since she and her husband, Daniel Palladino, left Gilmore Girls after the show's sixth season.

Reviews for the show -- including mine -- were largely negative; almost all of them cited how Sherman-Palladino's unique writing style and pace were thrown off by the studio audience / laugh track used for the show. FOX obviously didn't have any confidence in the show, because it was airing episodes on Friday nights after cutting its initial order from 13 episodes to 7.

The Return of Jezebel James -- An early look

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 11th 2008 11:03AM
The Return of Jezebel JamesIf you're a fan of Amy Sherman-Palladino -- which pretty much means you were a fan of Gilmore Girls -- you've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of her new FOX sitcom, The Return of Jezebel James.

Unfortunately, if you're a fan of Sherman-Palladino's, you're going to end up pretty disappointed. The two episodes that FOX sent out for review were not only devoid of laughs, but uncomfortably paced as well. The pacing is something that's important to note, given the unique dialogue that AS-P and her husband, Daniel Palladino, are known for.

But the most disappointing thing about the show is that it's miscast, in the biggest way possible.

FOX cuts episode order for The Return of Jezebel James

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 14th 2007 8:24PM

Return of Jezebel JamesThis is what's known, in network-speak, as "we really don't have any confidence in your show."

FOX has cut the episode order for the new comedy The Return of Jezebel James. The original order was for 13 episodes, but now the network has reduced the order to 7. The network says that they always planned the show to be a midseason show and seven episodes is all they need right now, but it can't be a good sign. This follows news that the producers had changed the show's setting from Hoboken to Brooklyn because they "wanted her to have a loft instead of a brownstone."

FOX's press tour gala - Simpsons, swag, Santa Monica - TCA report

Fox

Two days of presentations from FOX wrapped up with yet another outdoor "all-stars" party. FOX held its gala at the Santa Monica Pier just in time for out-of-town TCA members to see the sunset and the Pacific Ocean.

While there was plenty of swag in sight (mostly various sizes of dolls from The Simpsons), you had to earn it!

Party attendees played carnival games (ring toss, shooting baskets, knocking down bottles with baseballs, popping balloons with darts) in order to take home prizes.
