'Army Wives' - 'Collateral Damage' Recap (Season Premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 12th 2010 12:20AM
After what seemed like more than a year, 'Army Wives' finally returned to Lifetime, picking up pretty much where we left off. That's good news for some, and not such good news for others. With a flash of a gunshot, the season was off and running, with plenty of drama and turmoil. For more on Fort Marshall, the tribe and Roxy's bun in the oven, read on after the jump.

Stephen Colbert wants to be The Worst Person in the World

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 16th 2009 5:42PM
Stephen Colbert is angry at Keith Olbermann. He's not upset that Olbermann named him a Worst Person in the World, he's upset because Olberman didn't name him a Worst Person in the World. In this clip, Colbert tries to get on Olbermann's list. His plan involves a baby and a puppy.

We also learn a new term: "junk buffing."

Mark Sanford was on The Colbert Report last year

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 25th 2009 2:32PM
The weirdest part of that Governor Mark Sanford press conference yesterday wasn't the odd detail he gave or the lies he told his staff about this whole affair/hike, it was the girl in the background behind Sanford who kept smiling broadly. Perhaps the next time a cheating politician has a press conference he should do it with his back against a wall.

Anyway, Stephen Colbert tackled the subject last night. He has a unique take on it because he actually interviewed Sanford back in early 2008 as part of his "Better Know" series (the interview was repeated earlier this year). Here's the whole episode (the Sanford segment is first).

Army Wives: Great Expectations

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 8th 2008 9:41AM
Army duo(S02E12) There were too many story lines in this episode, too many threads pulled from the fabric. It felt like they were setting up the show for the end of the season and building suspense. For that reason, it felt very disjointed to me.

Claudia Joy's parents, Randall and Charlotte -- nicely played by Len Cariou and Marsha Mason -- have settled in the Holden's house as they deal with their marital/financial issues. The kind of money problems most families are facing in this country right now are not like this, so it's hard to relate. It's also hard to buy that his gambling has never impacted on Claudia's life before. Her hero worship has blinded her to his flaws, but how can you keep money troubles that secret?

Marsha Mason to guest on Army Wives

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 10th 2008 12:02PM
Marsha on BroadwayKim Delaney is not Quinn Cummings, but the actresses share one thing in common: Marsha Mason as a mom, on screen that is. Army Wives has cast Marsha Mason, Oscar-nominated actress for The Goodbye Girl, as Claudia Joy Holden's mom. She will be appearing on at least two episodes this season, visiting Fort Marshall and her daughter, the general's wife.

Marsha, who is actually has been Oscar-nominated as Best Actress four times in all (Cinderella Liberty, Chapter Two, Only When I Laugh), will guest on Army Wives as Charlotte Meade, Claudia's socialite mother. Her relationship with her daughter is strained and her visit comes without warning.

Army Wives: Season One - DVD review

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 6th 2008 1:11PM
Army Wives DVD setJudging by the Nielsen ratings Lifetime is raking in for Army Wives in its second season, this show has found its audience. It actually started last spring when Army Wives was a national surprise -- to everyone in the business outside of Lifetime, which picked up the show when ABC passed.

It's still amazing to think that ABC had a chance to put this show in their schedule and let it get away. Their loss is Lifetime's gain -- and they're feasting on it.

If you missed the first season of Army Wives, and didn't get into the show until the fifth episode -- like me -- then you'll be glad to know that Army Wives: The Complete First Season is now available on DVD. It's a great set, too, with some very nice bonus features and quality commentaries.

Army Wives: Leaving the Tribe

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 30th 2008 10:22AM
Army Wives partial cast(S02E04) If there's one thing about Army Wives that bothers me, it's that life is rarely this tidy. With a few exceptions, this episode was about as neat and organized as Frank Sherwood's sock drawer. If you know that character, you know what I mean.

The really good part of the show dealt not with the wives, but with the husbands. Michael Holden, usually the Rock of Gibraltar, finally was shown to be in pain.

It was fitting that Michael wouldn't make it easy for Claudia Joy to find out what was bothering him. A general doesn't show his soft underbelly, not even to his wife.

The twist of having George's sister, Leah, appear was a good development. It was unexpected that the sister of the guy who bombed the Hump Bar would approach the Holdens, but it worked because it gave Claudia Joy a chance to counsel Michael.

So You Think You Can Dance: Charleston and Washington, D.C. auditions

by Kristin Sample, posted May 30th 2008 12:02PM
Dan Karaty, Mary Murphy, and Nigel Lythgoe
(S04E03) Last night we joined Cat, Nigel, Mary, and Tyce in Charleston, South Carolina for more auditions. I, for one, am getting sick of the two-hour audition shows already. We talked about this last week and I have to point it out again: maybe if they showed more dancing, these audition shows would be better.

Cat assured us at the beginning of the program that Charleston would not disappoint as SYTYCD went there in season two. Who did they find in South Carolina? Natalie, Dimitri, finalist Heidi and none other than Travis Woll, season two's runner-up. In the second hour, Mary and Nigel headed to D.C. where they were joined by Dan.

Find out what happened in both cities after the jump.

Stephen Colbert drops out of presidential race

by Jen Creer, posted Nov 5th 2007 3:20PM
Stephen ColbertHe's out! Stephen Colbert is not going to be America's next president, or indeed, even the next presidential candidate.The South Carolina Democratic Executive Council voted to keep Stephen Colbert's name off the primary ballot, which pretty effectively ends his presidential campaign. Nevertheless, Colbert would not be Colbert without making a showy public withdrawal.

Colbert has been running for president in South Carolina, and chronicling his campaign adventures on The Colbert Report. Despite Colbert's position as a mock Republican, he campaigned as a Democrat, probably -- as The Huffington Post notes -- because it was less expensive to file as a liberal.

Stephen Colbert's presidential dreams crushed

by Annie Wu, posted Nov 2nd 2007 9:43AM
Stephen ColbertReally, how long did anyone expect this to go on?

Earlier on Thursday, the South Carolina Democratic Party decided to keep Stephen Colbert's name off the ballot, saying that he didn't meet the national standard of viability and didn't seem to be campaigning to win. Plus, the state party would have had to pay $20,000 to the state election commission to have Colbert's name on the ballot. $20,000 is an awful lot for a drawn-out joke.

Stephen Colbert to throw ice cream

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 21st 2007 4:24PM

colbert ice creamIf you haven't yet tried Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream ice cream from Ben and Jerry's, you should. It is the most "just okay" ice cream you'll ever taste. Your tastebuds will be bombarded with a cavalcade of average, middle-of-the-road flavor.

Okay, so AmeriCone Dream never did much for me. I'm more of a Phish Food man, what can you do? However, on July 7, Colbert will be doing something Phish has never done: he'll throw the first pitch at a RiverDogs baseball game in Charleston, South Carolina (his hometown). He won't be throwing a ball, however, he'll be throwing a pint of AmeriCone Dream. I'd like to see the entire game played with a pint of ice cream, but that probably won't happen. Jerry Greenfield, the "Jerry" in "Ben and Jerry's" will catch the pint. Let's hope he does, because I'm pretty sure getting conked in the head by a pint of frozen ice cream is kind of painful, especially if one of those waffle cone shards get wedged in your eye.

In addition to tossing his ice cream, Colbert will also sit in on the radio broadcast during the game.

MSNBC and FOX News to air debates this spring

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 9th 2007 6:33PM

MSNBCMSNBC has just announced that they will air the first debate of the 2008 Presidential campaign. The network will have the first Democratic party debate at South Carolina State University on April 26. A few weeks later, on May 15, FOX News will air the first Republican party debate from South Carolina.

Um...wait a second. The election isn't until November of 2008 but the debates are already starting this April? More than a year and a half before the election? Has this always been done? I usually pay close attention to these things but I can't remember them starting this early before.

Then again, all the supermarkets and drugstores had Christmas candy on the same shelves as Halloween candy a few months ago, so I guess everything starts early these days.

Lifetime places order for Army Wives

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 2nd 2006 6:14PM
lifetime logoThe Lifetime cable television network has ordered 13 episodes of Army Wives, a drama about spouses living on a military base in South Carolina. The ensemble cast includes Kim Delaney (NYPD Blue) and Catherine Bell (JAG), who have both had recent guest appearances on popular shows including The O.C. and Law & Order: SVU.

The series is based on the book, Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives, by Tanya Biank. Like the book, the series will be about the pressures on military spouses (there's one man in the mix) and the traditions they are expected to uphold.

Army Wives is set to premiere in March 2007.
