Emmy RoundtableJulianna Margulies, Connie Britton, Christina Hendricks, Regina King, Melissa Leo, Katey Sagal and Kelly MacDonald walk into a room ... no, this isn't the setup of a lame joke, it's what happened at the Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable.

These seven talented ladies -- all of them Emmy contenders -- gathered to discuss all things TV.

In the clip below, the women talk about the difference between film and TV work, and why working in TV is easier when you have a family.

"I like them both," Margulies said. "I don't not want to have my kid and I don't not want to have my job, so you make it work. And you sleep when you're dead."

'Southland' Cast Ramps Up for Season 3

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 26th 2010 5:45PM
To kick off the week and celebrate 'Southland' going back into production this Thursday in L.A., TNT hosted a cocktail party for select TV critics and journalists to mingle with the 'Southland' cast.

The overall consensus: everyone is ready to be back at work.

The cast and producers were all very tight-lipped about what's in store for season 3 of their critically-acclaimed, network-shuffled show (premieres January 2011), but they were very chatty regarding just about everything else.

'227' Cast: Where Are They Now

by Chris Jordan, posted Mar 3rd 2010 11:00AM
227 castWhere is the '227' cast now? NBC's 'Today' show stopped off at '227' today during its Classic TV Families Reunion Week. While the address might not be immediately familiar to some, it's significant as the series was one of the few '80s shows to feature an African-American cast.

'227,' which ran from 1985 to 1990, starred Marla Gibbs, who at that point was known best as the sassy maid from 'The Jeffersons.' Gibbs played a mom in a Washington, D.C. middle class neighborhood, while sexy Jackée Harry became the series' breakout star and the late Helen Martin had the best lines.

What's the cast up to now? Find out after the jump.

So 'Southland' fans: have you been watching the repeat episodes of the show on TNT? I would hope so, since you battled hard and long for the show to come back.

When the network picked up the show from NBC, there were several new episodes that NBC didn't show. Those start on TNT March 2. Here's a sneak peek.

Regina King Talks 'Southland,' New Partners and Getting Physical

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 11th 2010 10:00AM
Regina KingRegina King is about to have a lot more men in her life.

She's already one of the only female officers on 'Southland,' a show chock-full of testosterone. But since we last saw her toting a shotgun, saving lives, fighting gang violence head-on and seeing her partner get shot, her character, Det. Lydia Adams, is also now looking for love, and a new partner.

AOL TV caught up with King to talk about being on TNT now (premieres Tues., Jan. 12, 10PM ET), the new batch of episodes we'll see in a few weeks, getting more physical on the show and how many fans have found 'Southland' since the show founds its new home.

Regina KingYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

In honor of 'Southland''s glorious return to our TVs (Tue., 10PM ET on TNT), I got star Regina King's take on whether or not her character, Det. Lydia Adams, should hook up with Ben McKenzie's character, Det. Ben Sherman. The words "cutie" and "animalistic" are part of her answer ... tell me you're not curious.

I also have some behind-the-scenes fun with 'Human Target' star Mark Valley, and share a few of my Golden Globe predictions. (Yay, 'Modern Family'! Sorry 'Cougar Town.')

'Southland' on TNT Preview: Cast & Producers Talk What to Expect

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 7th 2010 3:00PM
As TNT's premiere of 'Southland' draws near, fans are no doubt wondering what to expect from the show that NBC so swiftly canceled before its second season could even premiere.

In an exclusive clip we saw from the first new episode -- which will begin airing after the original seven episodes from season 1 premiere on TNT (Tues., Jan. 12, 10PM ET) -- you can tell that the action picks right back up where it left off.

AOL TV got the chance to chat with 'Southland' stars Ben McKenzie, Michael Cudlitz and Regina King, as well as executive producers Ann Biderman and Chris Chulack. As should be expected, they're all incredibly excited about their new home, their big commercial-free cable premiere, the extra 6-plus minutes of bonus footage that'll also debut with the premiere and the future of the show.

Here are some of the biggest questions they tackled, head-on ... 'Southland'-style.

TNT picks up Southland (probably)

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 24th 2009 2:00PM
When NBC canceled Southland before the second season even had a chance to debut, online fans went into "Save Southland" mode. They went on Twitter, wrote letters to NBC and Warner Brothers, and tried to get the network to reconsider their decision, Jericho-style. Well, NBC is still not going to air the show, but Nikki Finke is reporting that TNT is going to pick up the show and start airing the first season as early as next week.

But she says that the deal isn't set yet because TNT and NBC can't come to terms on money (of course). In fact, an insider tells Finke that the "behavior from NBC has been unbelievable and amazingly f***ed up - even for them - which is saying something."

Of course, there's no word yet on whether TNT will simply buy the first season's worth of episodes and whatever they filmed for the second season or if TNT will actually produce more new episodes.

Goodbye Southland

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 8th 2009 10:07PM
Oh, this is going to tick off sooooo many people.

NBC has decided to cancel Southland! They have finished filming six episodes for season two but NBC suddenly pulled the plug on the show. There's still a chance that a cable network could pick it up. I can picture the show on FX or TNT or USA. Or maybe NBC could put it on Bravo? Nah, then they'd have no room for Real Housewives of Bangor, Maine.

Southland: Derailed (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 22nd 2009 9:25AM
SouthlandThis was only the seventh episode of Southland but it was also the season finale, due to it starting after ER ended its run.

I'm still of two minds about this show. While it's obvious it's a "quality" show, I want more Adam-12 and less ensemble cast dramatics. Did you catch the scene with the lady with the chicken nuggets? That actually happened in real life a few months ago. (Yes, I mentioned chicken nuggets before the big shooting at the end!)

The show is coming back this fall but will move to Friday nights at 9 (thanks Jay). That's probably not a good thing.

Southland: Sally in the Alley - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 1st 2009 11:16AM

I think I'd like Southland a lot more if it just focused on the cops played by Ben McKenzie and Michael Cudlitz. I find myself getting less interested when they cut away from what they're doing. I think Southland should be like a fictional version of Cops, showing the two cops inside the car talking and then going to various calls during the hour. I know, you're thinking, that's just Adam-12. But I really liked Adam-12!

Southland -- An early look - VIDEO

southland early look nbc hulu

, the gritty new police drama from film producer Ann Biderman, puts the spotlight on the dark and grimy corners of Los Angeles as seen through the eyes of uniformed cops and plainclothes detectives. Unfortunately, the series premiere is mired in cop show clichés and forgets to deliver anything we haven't seen before.

The first episode – stream it now or watch it below, a week before it debuts on NBC – owes a lot to NYPD Blue, Homicide: Life on the Street and countless other cop shows that came before it. It's a procedural with a large cast about cops struggling to balance "the job" with their personal lives.

NBC likes Police (but there might not be room for it)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 7th 2009 12:03PM
NBC logoI was afraid this might happen to new shows.

Brett told you last June about a new show from ER producer John Wells titled LAPD. Well, the show has been retitled to Police, and NBC is still interested in it. However, not only is the number of episodes ordered under dispute (they're looking for 12, but NBC might want six instead), there might not be a place on the schedule for it. Jay Leno is taking up the 10pm time slot Monday through Friday later this year, so they might only want it for a short period of time. And that's if they have room for it at all.
