David Cassidy Suing SonyDavid Cassidy claims he's owed a small fortune of profits from 'The Partridge Family.'

According to CNN, the actor is suing Screen Gems, CRT Holdings, Sony Pictures Television and Sony Pictures Entertainment in Los Angeles Superior Court.

"For nearly 40 years, defendants have swindled Mr. Cassidy out of his rightful share of the profits from 'The Partridge Family,' and when Mr. Cassidy has inquired as to the matter, have lied to him so as to continue to conceal their deception," the lawsuit says.

Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that the defendants aren't staying true to Cassidy's contract and are continuing to scam him.

Lewis Black Puts Craig Ferguson In His Place on 'The Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Lewis Black, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson likes to sit back and laugh at the foibles of his guests on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on CBS). He's been more than open about his own dark past with drugs and alcohol, so he's coming from a place of commiseration with many of their struggles.

But Ferguson has more than just his past to consider, as pointed out beautifully by Lewis Black. Ferguson was ribbing him about still touring in a bus like the Partridge Family, when Black took the joke a step further and indicated he travels with a fetal pig as well.

Ferguson gave him a startled look, and Black went off. "Don't give me a look like I'm nuts," he shouted. "You're talking to a robot. You're drinking out of a snake glass."

Partridge Family where are they now

Where are 'The Partridge Family' stars now? They invited you to 'C'mon Get Happy,' but did the cast of 'The Partridge Family' follow its own advice? David Cassidy, Danny Bonaduce, Brian Forster and Suzanne Crough are among the stars of the classic 1970s musical sitcom that reunited this morning on NBC's 'Today.'

Some of the TV family members have stayed in the public eye since their days of donning crushed velvet and singing 'I Think I Love You,' while others have long since gotten off the pop culture bus. Here's where the Partridges flew following the cancellation of the series in 1974.

Taking our cue from 'The 12 Days of Christmas,' we bring you a dozen holiday-themed episodes rich in tidings of comfort and joy.

A Partridge Family reunion? C'mon, get happy!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 4th 2009 2:07PM
The Partridge FamilyThe Partridge Family was one of those cheesy 1970s sitcoms that was horribly predictable, sugary-sweet, and much of the plot revolved around David Cassidy's fluffy hair. And yet, I loved it, right down to the sappy song they played at the end of every episode.

If you, too, are a closet fan of The Partridge Family, here's your chance to catch a mini-reunion of the singing family. David Cassidy plays David Gallagher on the ABC Family show Ruby & The Rockits. Shirley Jones -- who played his mom on The Partridge Family -- will once again play that role on Ruby.

Ok, here's where things get complicated. In real life, Jones is Cassidy's stepmother. She's also mom to his co-star and brother Patrick Cassidy, who plays Patrick Gallagher on Ruby. Meanwhile, David's brother Shaun Cassidy serves as executive producer, and brother Ryan is the show's set decorator.

Now if we could just get Danny Bonaduce and Susan Dey to guest star as traveling musicians passing through town in a colorful bus, a whole lot of lovin' is what they'd be bringin'!

Cash for TV clunkers

The FlintstonesThe "Cash For Clunkers" program ends tonight at 8PM, which is probably a good thing because we won't have to hear the term "Cash For Clunkers" anymore. But what about TV cars? Which famous television autos are in such bad shape they should be traded in? TV Tango has a fun list that includes the Beverly Hillbillies car and Columbo's old Peugeot.

It's a clever list, and includes the new vanity plates each car would have.

MASHIn AOL TV's continuing countdown of the best TV shows of each decade, we're back to break down the 1970s, a decade when the cop dramas were less gritty, the families were close-knit and the sitcoms were sprinkled with serious social commentary.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 13th 2008 6:02PM
Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Lots of complete series sets this week, including two you probably thought you'd never see, Quark and Ultraman. I have no nostalgic memories of Ultraman, but Quark was a show I enjoyed. It's also neat to see shows like The Shari Lewis Show or DVD.

I wonder why the Back To You set isn't a complete series set instead of just Season 1? Maybe it was already in production before the show was canceled.

  • Back To You - Season 1
  • CSI - Season 8
  • Charlie and Lola - Vol. 1-8
  • The Deputy - Best Of
  • Life with Derek - Season 1
  • Lil' Bush - Season 2
  • Lovejoy - Christmas Specials
  • Nash Bridges - Season 1
  • The Partridge Family - Season 3
  • Quark - Complete Series
  • Rules of Engagement - Season 2
  • The Sarah Silverman Program - Season 2, Vol. 1
  • Scott Baio is 45... - Seasons 1 and 2
  • The Shari Lewis Show - A Shari Lewis Christmas
  • SpongeBob SquarePants - Who Bob What Pants
  • Survivorman - Season 2
  • That 70s Show - Complete Series
  • Ultraman - Complete Series
  • The Unit - Season 3

Top 15 hottest moms on television

by Paul Goebel, posted Apr 18th 2007 11:05AM
Teri HatcherWelcome to TV Squad Lists (formerly 'The Five'), a feature where each blogger has a chance to list his or her own rundown of things in television that stand out from the rest, both good and bad.

Being newly single, I've been spending a lot of time these days thinking about the perfect woman. More often than not, my thoughts end up drifting into the realm of television and all of the perfect women there. So I decided to compile a list of the ten hottest moms on television. Unfortunately, there were way too many to fit on a top ten list, so I expanded the list to fifteen. This was a tough list to compile and I'm sure many of your favorites are absent, but I doubt that anyone can refute the fifteen below.

Susan Mayer - Desperate Housewives (Teri Hatcher) Hatcher has always been smoking hot but it wasn't until Desperate Housewives that she became a TV mom. The best part of her character is how Susan is continually clumsy, awkward and unsure of herself and still manages to be hot.

Cowsill suffered from emphysema and osteoporosis. Oddly, Cowsill's brother Barry disappeared during Hurricane Katrina, and his body was found four months later.
