Hardly Knew You: The Short-Lived Shows of 2010

by Rich Keller, posted Dec 20th 2010 5:40PM
'Lone Star,' which garnered huge pre-season buzz, was cancled by FOX after only two episodes.Not everything is a long-running classic in the fickle world that is television. You may feel that your show has the right mix of acting, writing and directing to be a favorite for indefinite first-run and syndicated airings, but the viewers may have other ideas.

And when that happens, your show could disappear before the cover art is even dry for the complete series DVD set.

The year 2010 had no shortage of these short timers. In fact, the 2010-2011 season has already seen not one, not two but three series that bowed out after only two episodes. This, despite long-promoted hype and pre-season buzz. Mentioned here are the 2010 programs that had shorter runs than the presidency of William Henry Harrison.

Rowdy Plays Hardball With a Judge on 'The Deep End' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 19th 2010 2:20AM
The Deep End, Norbert Leo ButzSometimes you have to play hardball with an old colleague to set things right in the world. That's just what Rowdy does on 'The Deep End' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC) when he appeals to a judge who plans on keeping his client in prison.

But he's innocent! Just like the kid who was innocent so many years ago, who ended up on death row even though someone else confessed to the crime later! Yeah, sometimes the justice system sucks.

Are you watching 'The Deep End'? Don't believe all the bad reviews, because it's quite entertaining.

Review: The Deep End - Pilot (series premiere)

The Deep End: Pilot
(S01E01) "Are we supposed to love this job or hate it?" - Dylan Hewitt

I like this show! Let's face it. Grey's Anatomy is dying, and The Deep End is Grey's Anatomy (the early years, that is), only with lawyers. It's got plenty of snappy dialogue, romantic sparks, inter-office power struggles, handsome people in nice clothes, office sex, Black-Eyed Peas tunes and cupcakes! What's not to love?

'The Deep End' Stars Billy Zane & Tina Majorino On Who You'll Love to Hate - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 20th 2010 9:00PM
ABC's newest Thursday night drama, 'The Deep End,' takes the sex, romance and friendships of 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Private Practice' out of the hospital, and sets them in a law firm instead.

With Billy Zane as Cliff, the big bad boss they call the Prince of Darkness, and Tina Majorino as Addy, the frazzled first year who's eager to please, the two are complete opposites on the show -- and, apparently, in real life, too. "I'm most like Addy," Majorino admits. For Zane, it's a toss-up between his character and ... the receptionist?

Watch our interview to find out what to expect from the show (premieres Jan. 21, 8PM ET), and what show the stars are watching -- or should be watching -- on TV.

Dollhouse - Friday January 22, 8 pm, Global/Fox


EDITOR'S NOTE: The 'Dollhouse' finale has been postponed to January 29th. The Haiti fundraising telethon will air in its place.

While most TV viewers are excited about the new shows starting up, Joss Whedon fans are taking it on the chin again as 'Dollhouse' comes to a close. But there are some signs the show may live on, as 'Buffy' and 'Angel' did before it, in the world of comic books. At the very least, fans can tease themselves with trips to a couple of viral websites where Echo's world lives on. Check out the site for the Rossum Corporation, a rebel Ditch the Tech site, the issues-driven Not A Doll site and of course, get all the updates at Joss-central - Whedonesque.com.

The Show Girl Sounds Off on 'The Deep End,' 'Archer,' '24' and 'Nip/Tuck' - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 15th 2010 1:30PM
Katee SackhoffYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I have a preview of ABC's new legal dramedy 'The Deep End' -- which is sort of like 'Grey's Anatomy' at a law firn -- straight from stars Billy Zane and Tina Majorino. I also get funny lady Aisha Tyler to beg another 'Arrested Development' alum (they already have two!) to come on her new animated comedy 'Archer.'

Then there's Katee Sackhoff. She's officially my new favorite actress, and now she's on '24,' but her answer to my sort of controversial 'Nip/Tuck' question -- why did they get all soap opera-y and keep your character but replace you with Rose McGowan? -- is equal parts lovely and hilarious.

Want more? Email me TV questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com -- who knows, I might just give you an answer on the show. Now watch, enjoy and come back next week for more. Until then, happy TV watching! -- By Maggie Furlong
