Elisha CuthbertThough her recent venture with ABC, 'The Forgotten,' was short-lived, Elisha Cuthbert is trying again with the network.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has cast the actress as the lead in its comedy pilot, 'Happy Endings.'

The sitcom, written by David Caspe, centers on a couple who break up at the altar. Though not together anymore, the former bride and groom still want to share their four best friends, which creates a complicated social circle.

It Looks Like It's Over for 'The Forgotten'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 3rd 2010 3:02PM
The ForgottenChristian Slater needs to pick better TV shows. Or at least pick TV shows that have some sort of chance of surviving. That's easier said than done, of course, or I'd be the most successful programmer in network history. Last year Slater starred in the short-lived 'My Own Worst Enemy' (a show I actually kinda liked) and now it looks like ABC's 'The Forgotten' is going to be short-lived too, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The March 23 episode was supposed to be the season finale, but ABC is pulling the show before then and the March 9 episode will be the season finale instead (no episode on March 16 either). And since ABC doesn't seem to have enough faith in the show to even let a couple more episodes air, we can pretty much bet that those "season finale" tags will be changed to "series finale" tags.

Maybe Slater should star in one of those 'NCIS'/'CSI'/'Criminal Minds' spinoffs that seem to happen every year. I can picture that.

ABC Forgets 'The Forgotten'

by Laura Prudom, posted Mar 3rd 2010 11:45AM
the forgottenFor those of you finding ABC's freshman drama 'The Forgotten' less than memorable, ABC seems to share your opinion.

Rather than letting Christian Slater's new crime procedural run its course, the network plans to pull the March 23 episode, originally designated as the show's first season finale, and has dubbed next week's episode the season (and probably series) ender instead, the Live Feed reports.

This follows the Alphabet's earlier decision to replace the March 16 ep with a 'FlashForward' clip show (ouch).

Two Join 'Matadors' Pilot

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 16th 2010 4:01PM
ABC logoIt looks like we're going to have another legal drama on TV, but at least this one looks like it might have a twist to it. ABC has cast the two lead roles for 'Matadors,' about two battling families who also happen to be filled with attorneys. One family has a private practice while the other works for the state. The Hollywood Reporter describes it as a "Romeo and Juliet-style drama" because the two lovebirds come from each of those battling families.

Michelle Borth, who currently co-stars on ABC's 'The Forgotten' (though I'm guessing not for long) will play Juliana, while Zach Gilford will play Alex, the guy who Juliana will fall in love with. The woman's name is Juliana? Well, at least they didn't name the man's character Roman or something like that.

Gilford plays Matt on 'Friday Night Lights.' He's not a regular anymore but did make appearances this season.

Elisha Cuthbert Joins Christian Slater on 'The Forgotten' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 10th 2010 3:12AM
<a href='My Own Worst Enemy' didn't fare so well with viewers, but maybe Christian Slater will have better luck with 'The Forgotten' (Tues., 10PM ET on ABC). He stars as Alex Donovan, an ex-cop who takes on cases after they hit a dead end with the police.

Looks like Elisha Cuthbert doesn't plan on spending too much time as Kim Bauer on '24,' because she's joined The Forgotten Network. All she has to do is "show up," so how hard can that be?

Elisha Cuthbert and Christian Slater on Finding 'The Forgotten'

by Chris Jordan, posted Feb 8th 2010 4:30PM
Come Tue., Feb. 9, Elisha Cuthbert, who's had some memorable scenes in her career, is joining Christian Slater on the ABC mystery drama 'The Forgotten' in a recurring role. It's not the first time the two have worked together -- they paired on the big screen in the 2007 dark comedy 'He Was a Quiet Man,' in which she played a quadriplegic and Slater an office drone with homicidal fantasies.

On 'The Forgotten,' Cuthbert's Maxine Denver joins a team led by Slater of non-professionals who help law enforcement identify Jane and John Does. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced series, which premiered in the fall, marks a new television venture for Cuthbert, who's best known as Kim Bauer, daughter of Jack Bauer on Fox's '24,' and for the movies 'Old School,' and 'Love Actually.'

We chatted with Slater and Cuthbert about the similarities between 'Quiet Man' and 'The Forgotten' -- besides the dead bodies -- and about how 'The Forgotten' has started to solve real-life John and Jane Doe mysteries.

Christian Slater Goes Back to School and Gets GED (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 5th 2010 11:52AM
Christian Slater, star of ABC's 'The Forgotten,' appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' and discussed his decision to go back to school and get his GED as a way to show his children the importance of a good education.

"I was working from the time I was nine years old. So, school was not very important to me; it wasn't a great priority," Slater said. "And then, when I had kids, I want them to obviously get a full education ... I didn't want to lose the argument. So, I figured the best thing to do is to go and at least take some action, get the GED."

Elisha Cuthbert Joins 'The Forgotten'

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Dec 8th 2009 11:00AM
Elisha Cuthbert, famous for her role as Jack Bauer's daughter (Kiefer Sutherland) on '24,' will be appearing in a six-episode arc on ABC's drama 'The Forgotten.' The Hollywood Reporter says that Cuthbert will take on the role of Maxine Denver, a Chicago professional who is forced to put aside her skepticism when the Forgotten Network helps solve a case.

Cuthbert first appeared on the scene with mini roles in 2003's 'Old School' and 'Love Actually.' She then worked on other film and television projects, including appearing as a judge on the Canadian version of 'Project Runway.' In 2010, she'll breathe life into the animated cat Cleo, a cartoon kitty with wealthy feline parents, in Imagi Entertainment's 'Cat Tale,' along side Jerry O'Connell and Billy Idol.

What are the odds your favorite (or least favorite) show will be canceled?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2009 2:30PM
HankA couple of weeks ago, I did a post about the shows that were "on the bubble," the ones in danger of being canceled. Now AOL TV has given the odds on what shows might not be coming back.

A lot of shows on the list won't surprise us: Hank, The Forgotten, Numb3rs, Gary Unmarried, and 'Til Death (each either gets low ratings or has been on for a while), but there are several that I think will actually make it to a another season, including The Good Wife and Parks and Recreation.
