The Show Girl Talks Conan O'Brien, 'Tacky House, & 'Glee' Rivalries (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 30th 2010 9:00AM
Conan O'BrienThis week, I've got the scoop on Conan O'Brien's Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour (psst! get info here), including the many celebs who popped by to make his L.A. dates even more amazing. Can't wait to have Conan back on TV with his new TBS talk show in the fall.

I also talk to celebrity designer and 'Tacky House' host Thom Filicia about the one supposedly style-savvy celeb he'd love to de-tackify. Then I get the dirt on the rumored 'Glee'-'Modern Family' rivalry straight from 'Glee''s resident bad girl Jessalyn Gilsig.

Rob Corddry in Childrens' HospitalThis week, I check in to see what's happening on 'Childrens' Hospital,' the hilarious Web series-turned-Adult Swim show, and let series creator and star Rob Corddry explain why he's in clown makeup and covered in blood, for those who aren't familiar. (One note: 'Childrens' Hospital' is not actually for children.)

I also have the dish on 'Happy Town,' ABC's new murder-mystery drama, and talk about the pressures of cooking for TV's funniest family -- um, hello? 'Modern Family'! -- with 'Top Chef Masters' contestant Rick Tramonto.

The Show Girl Talks 'Justified,' 'Minute To Win It' & 'All My Children' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 12th 2010 9:00AM
What do you get when you cross Timothy Olyphant and a supremely cool cowboy cop role? 'Justified,' FX's new drama. I get the scoop on costars (like Walton Goggins from 'The Shield') and dream guest stars (is Rose Byrne busy?) from Olyphant himself.

I also try to keep up with mile-a-minute 'Minute To Win It' host Guy Fieri, who beat me at foosball, then swiftly branded me with the nickname Foosinator. If you think he's funny on 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,' just wait till you see him host a game show. Bonus for soap opera fans: I visit Pine Valley to act up with Erica Kane, a.k.a. 'All My Children' star Susan Lucci.

Tyler Labine, 'Sons of Tucson'Are you a fan of war dramas like 'Band of Brothers'? What about love stories? According to retired Marine captain Dale Dye, HBO's latest 10-part miniseries, 'The Pacific,' has it all. Dye worked as their military training adviser, and he promises me that 'The Pacific' isn't just for guys. Honestly, I could listen to his stories all day -- the man has lived.

Another guy who tells a mean story? Tyler Labine, formerly of 'Reaper' and now playing leading man and dad-for-hire on 'Sons of Tucson.' Don't know about his new show? I let him give you the scoop.

Regina KingYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

In honor of 'Southland''s glorious return to our TVs (Tue., 10PM ET on TNT), I got star Regina King's take on whether or not her character, Det. Lydia Adams, should hook up with Ben McKenzie's character, Det. Ben Sherman. The words "cutie" and "animalistic" are part of her answer ... tell me you're not curious.

I also have some behind-the-scenes fun with 'Human Target' star Mark Valley, and share a few of my Golden Globe predictions. (Yay, 'Modern Family'! Sorry 'Cougar Town.')

Nurse JackieHappy New Year!!

2009 was an amazing year for TV fans -- and definitely a wonderful year to be The Show Girl -- but 2010 is looking like it might just top it.

Looking back at the best TV this past year, you can't forget our favorite new pill-popping medical professional (sorry 'House'!), a hilarious 'Modern Family' and the most lovable high school Glee club ever.

But 2010 promises us an 'UneXpected' twist on life, more of Mr. Nice Spy 'Chuck,' 'Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham's big return to primetime and (sniff! sniff!) the end of 'Lost.' Will you be watching? I know I will ... after all, it is my job.

And yes, it's a crazy fun job, but I couldn't do it without you guys. So if you want more TV scoop about your favorite shows, just email me your questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com. And, as always, happy TV watching!

Bear GryllsYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

Everyone has crazy dreams, but mine are usually TV-related. Like the one I had that was all about 'Man vs. Wild' host Bear Grylls. Yeah, I know I'm not alone there. He's just so ... talented and professional, right? Right, and we go on quite an adventure this week.

I also have a little sneak peek of season 8 of '24' -- including an introduction to two new cast members -- and a I get into it about 'How I Met Your Mother''s mother. Is it Rachel Bilson? Should it be? Does anyone still care? Personally, I just can't wait to see star Neil Patrick Harris' sure-to-be-legendary song and dance number in the 100th episode.

While everyone else is worried about being on Santa's "good" list this holiday season, I'm much more interested in the bad boys of TV.
