Sarah Paulson and Craig Ferguson Touch Their Noses With Their Tongues (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 21st 2011 4:45AM
Sarah Paulson, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'For some reason, Sarah Paulson was nervous coming onto 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). She was nervously touching Craig Ferguson's hands, and admitted that hers were a bit wet.

This led to a discussion on the lengths of giraffes' tongues, and then finally theirs. They didn't pull them out for measurement, but did showcase some nice nose-touching skills.

Paulson loves animals, but isn't such a big fan of zoos. When Ferguson said she should go to good zoos to fight off being sad for the animals, she responded with, "A good zoo is somehow better because they're not actually trapped behind bars at a good zoo?"

Cupid: My Fair Masseuse (series finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 17th 2009 8:05AM

Oh, Cupid remake, we hardly knew ye.

So the show is dead and gone. It won't be renewed by ABC and it's not going to be saved by another network. At this rate, with Cupid and Studio 60, some people are going to start calling Sarah Paulson a "show killer." That's silly, of course.

So why didn't this Cupid make it further? Just not good enough? Did it pale in comparison to the Jeremy Piven original? Too many quirky, light shows already on TV? Nothing to grab viewers? The cast?

Cupid: Left of the Dial (season finale/series finale?) - open thread

When a Cupid remake (the original starred Jeremy Piven) was announced months ago, a lot of fans wondered if an update was even necessary. So here we are after the season finale, so I have to ask...was an update even necessary? How did it compare to the original? Should the series come back for another season?

Cupid: The Great Right Hope

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 15th 2009 10:29AM
Cupid ABC Bobby Cannavle(S01E03) This episode really lacked the charm and spirit of the first two. We did get to see the kooky Julie Hagerty as Claire's kooky mom. That was a plus. But you know a show isn't winning you over when the star's designer T-shirts are more interesting than the plot.

Only three episodes in and the Cupid cancellation rumors are swirling. According to some sites, the show is already dead. I might have been upset about Cupid going bye bye two weeks ago. Today, not so much.

I won't weep for a show that delivers warmed over fluff instead of compelling stories and interesting characters week after week. The first two episodes weren't amazing, but the charming cast, some great guest stars and the show's optimistic spirit managed to make them watchable. Tonight's ep dragged, the story and the couple of the week were straight outta dullsville, and Trevor and Claire's banter is getting old fast.

(S01E02) Like I wrote last week, the success of Cupid 2.0 will hinge heavily on the guest stars. Luckily, this week's guest stars were great.

Erik Palladino and Julie Ann Emery (as Mick and Riley) gave me the warm fuzzies as Cupid's latest couple of the week. I enjoyed their chemistry so much that I was able to forgive the stock "surprise twist" that reared its witless head in the third act.

Cupid: Pilot (series premiere)

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 1st 2009 1:00PM
Bobby Cannavale Cupid ABC(S01E01) Call me a hopeless romantic, but I was charmed by the series premiere of Cupid 2.0.

ABC's original Cupid from 10 years ago, also headed up by executive producer Rob Thomas, was a smart, playful and quirky hour of television that looked and felt like nothing else on the air at the time. ABC's promos for Thomas' remake made this new show look silly and the quirkiness look forced. Thankfully, that's not the case – for the most part.

Bobby Cannavale plays Trevor (played by Jeremy Piven in the original), a New York City bartender who claims he's Cupid, the god of romantic love. Expelled from Olympus, he's given the task of bringing one hundred couples together here on Earth. Trevor goes about his plan under the watchful eye of Sarah Paulson's Dr. Claire McCrae (Claire Allen in the original), a psychiatrist and best-selling self-help book author assigned to monitor Trevor's release from a psychiatric hospital.

Bobby Cannavale and Sarah Paulson talk about the return of Cupid - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 30th 2009 1:11PM
Sarah Paulson and Bobby Cannavale of CupidTen years after ABC prematurely cancelled Rob Thomas' dramedy Cupid, the alphabet net has decided to give it another go. The new version of the show, which premieres Tuesday at 10 PM ET, now stars Sarah Paulson and Bobby Cannavale in the roles originated by Paula Marshall and Jeremy Piven, respectively.

The premise is the same: Trevor Pierce claims to be Cupid, exiled from Mt. Olympus, and he needs to find true love for 100 couples before he is allowed back home. After Trevor is arrested for one of his stunts and sent to a psychological hospital, singles self-help guru Dr. Claire McCrae is assigned to keep track of him as he makes his way in the outside world. This time around, the show is set in the fast paced and cynical world of New York, complete with all the modern touches of dating in the late '00s (Maybe Cupid will have a Twitter account).

I spoke to the stars of the new Cupid last week. While I was on the phone, I asked Paulson about what happened on her previous series, Studio 60. I got a pretty interesting response...

5 Questions With: 'Cupid''s Bobby Cannavale and Sarah Paulson

by Andrew Scott, posted Mar 16th 2009 6:00AM
"Well, the real mythology of Cupid is that he does end up marrying a mortal named Psyche. It's the basic pretense of the thing that that's what would happen if we were lucky enough to go for 100 episodes." - Sarah Paulson

'Veronica Mars' creator Rob Thomas' other cult hit, 'Cupid,' is officially returning to the small screen -- albeit in slightly different form.

This updated version stars Sarah Paulson and Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale. Cannavale plays Trevor, (a role played in the original by 'Entourage''s Jeremy Piven), a love-struck New Yorker convinced he's Cupid, the god of love. Paulson plays his psychiatrist, Claire, whose traditional views on amour couldn't be more opposite from her patient's.

Will they continue to butt heads? Will they eventually grow to love each other? AOL TV recently sat down with Cannavale and Paulson to find out more about television's newest 'Cupid,' premiering Tue., March 31 at 10PM on ABC.

New ABC Dramedy 'Cupid'

by Andrew Scott, posted Mar 10th 2009 6:00AM
New ABC Dramedy TV Show 'Cupid' TVWhat It's About: Trevor Pierce (Bobby Cannavale), who claims to be Cupid, the God of love, must set up 100 couples in New York City so that he can return to Mt. Olympus. Meanwhile, his actions are monitored by his psychiatrist, Dr. Claire McCrae (Sarah Paulson), who must learn to deal with Trevor despite having a much more practical outlook on love. This incarnation of 'Cupid' is a remake of 'Veronica Mars' creator Rob Thomas' late-'90s cult series starring Jeremy Piven. (Thomas is hands-on this go-round, too.)

Who's In It: Bobby Cannavale, Sarah Paulson, Rick Gomez, Camille Guaty

Where You've Seen Them: A regular fixture on television, Paulson most recently co-starred in the Aaron Sorkin dramedy 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.' Cannavale's career has spanned both the big and small screens, with roles in everything from 'The Station Agent' to 'Sex and the City'; he also won an Emmy playing Will's boyfriend Vince on 'Will & Grace.' You probably recognize Guaty, though you may not know from where. She starred in the short-lived series 'The Nine' and had recurring roles on 'Prison Break' and 'Las Vegas,' among others.
