A&E cancels The Cleaner

The_Cleaner_Benjamin_BrattWhile a lot of shows seem to be thriving in cable, in the last couple of days, two series have bitten the dust. TBS dumped The Bill Engvall Show after three seasons, and now A&E Network has canceled The Cleaner, opting not to give the drama series another year. Hmm... does that mean Benjamin Bratt is available to return to Law and Order?

Probably not. Been there, done that, you know. But the TV pro is now unemployed although I doubt that'll be for long. The Cleaner just never really clicked for A&E. It was as intense as the network's hit reality show, Intervention, but it wasn't nearly as compelling.

Patrick Swayze succumbs to pancreatic cancer at 57

Patrick SwayzeSome more sad news from Tinseltown. Movie star and recent television star Patrick Swayze has lost his 20 month battle with pancreatic cancer at his ranch in Los Angeles. He was 57 years old.

Barbara Walters will air the actor's final television interview in a one hour special titled Last Dance tonight at 10 PM eastern/9 PM central on ABC.

He's probably best known for his work on the big screen in movies like Ghost, Dirty Dancing and (of course) the timeless Road House, a movie that became a cult sensation for all the wrong reasons and helped birth the sense of humor of MST3K and Rifftrax's Michael J. Nelson. But like all Hollywood actors, he made his presence known on the small screen, and his reach goes much further than his recent venture into cable drama glory with A&E's The Beast.

New TV on DVD releases this week

Simpsons DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

How can so many TV DVDs be released on one day and still there isn't one that I want to buy? The only one of the below sets that I might be interested in getting would be Simon & Simon. And that's only because it's one 80s action drama that I never got into for some reason but feel I should catch up on. But there's plenty of stuff for fans of every type of show, from Sons of Anarchy to The Smurfs.

  • The Beast - Season 1
  • Cracker - The Complete Series
  • Dexter - Season 3
  • Dirty Sexy Money - Season 2
  • Eli Stone - Season 2
  • Everybody Hates Chris - Season 4

A&E cancels The Beast

patrick swayze the beast
Though it probably comes as no big surprise, sources are saying that the Patrick Swayze drama about a rogue FBI agent, The Beast, won't be returning for a second season. While A&E has told Variety that no official decision has been made, word is that episode 13, which aired at the end of April, will be the series' last.

I've been watching I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here!, which is a terrible revelation to make about myself, but in the three hours of my life that show has taken from me, I've come to a few conclusions: 1. My life needs more meaning, and 2. Lou Diamond Phillips is kind of a bad-ass.

I bring this up because apparently, there had been talks of The Beast continuing with someone other than Patrick Swayze in the lead in case Swayze's poor health prevented him from continuing on the show. Phillips recently guest-starred on the series, and I would love to see him on television (in a situation in which he wasn't getting eaten by rats).

(10PM, A&E) 1st season finale
The future of 'The Beast' remains up in the air, largely because of star Patrick Swayze's ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer.

But in the season ender, viewers will get a few answers to questions surrounding his FBI agent Charles Barker.
Most of the action revolves around Barker's pursuit of the Red Gauntlet operation, a case that has dogged him throughout his career.

He receives some very pertinent info in the form of a list with the names of six people involved with Red Gauntlet, and with Ellis, Todd and Conrad's help, he tries to track them down. It's imperative that he does, lest they find him first.

Bones'Bones'
(8PM, Fox)
In a treat for fans, the show's second new episode of the week finds Brennan and Booth rocking out with their, uh, bones out, when a creepy case forces the duo to delve into the world of skeletons and death metal music.

The Jeffersonian team gets mixed up in the bizarre case when it's discovered that a death metal band in Norway is using an actual human skeleton as part of its stage act.

The remains of the day turn out to be an American, more specifically a death metal musician named Mayhem, from a band named Spew, but that's not the episode's biggest surprise, as the case sparks Brennan and Booth to 'fess up their own musical tastes to each other.

I'm getting bored with The Beast

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 6th 2009 5:02PM
The Beast - I love Patrick Swayze as much as the next guy... assuming that the next guy is generally aware of Patrick Swayze, has seen him in a few movies and usually enjoyed his performances and finds his battle with cancer as inspirational as anyone else's battle with cancer. I'll even go so far as to say I'm really enjoying Patrick Swayze's performance in A&E's new series The Beast. But ... man, aside from that this show is getting all kinds of dull! In the beginning we got this promise of Swayze's character getting this new partner, but what he didn't know was this his new partner was recruited to be a double agent put in to spy on him.

We're four episodes into a thirteen episode run and that hasn't happened yet. Instead, we get these tag scenes at the end of each episode that cra-a-a-awls that storyline along. Other than that it's another generic FBI procedural. Only one that's terribly acted, and almost as badly written. Except for Swayze. 99% of the time he's on the screen he's rocking it and owning it. The other 1% ... well he's giving an odd smile that makes it look like his face is breaking.
