by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2011 4:07AM
Jenna Fischer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jenna Fischer had a surprise for Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). It wasn't that she's pregnant, as that's become pretty obvious by now. As Fischer stated, "You want to tell people or else they think you've just been on a big food binge or something."

But while that cat has been let out of the bag, she did save an exclusive bit of information for Leno and his audience. When he asked her if this was the first grandbaby for her parents, she responded, "This is the second grandchild, but the first grandson."

She then told him that he'd just gotten the exclusive on the gender of her baby, which was very exciting for Leno. "So like a lot of girls, you were saving yourself for Jay," he joked.

Steve Carell, James SpaderThe new 'Office' boss has Michael Scott's blessing ... sort of.

Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott on 'The Office' for seven years, said he thinks James Spader is a great addition to 'The Office' cast.

"I think it's an excellent choice," Carell told Access Hollywood. "I think it's great and he will infuse all this new energy into the show."

'Boston Legal' veteran Spader will reprise his role from the Season 7 finale, Robert California, and replace Kathy Bates' CEO character. Spader's character originally interviewed for Michael Scott's vacated branch manager position. Fans will learn the character was hired to run the Scranton branch, but then quickly worked his way up the corporate ladder to become the CEO of Dunder Mifflin Sabre.

'The Office' Couple Expecting: Jim and Pam Will Have Another Baby

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 14th 2011 2:45PM
Jim, Pam, The OfficeJenna Fischer will successfully avoid the tried-and-true baggy clothing/large purse pregnancy cover-up when 'The Office' returns this fall.

The actress confirmed to Vulture that her character, Pam, will also be expecting when we return to Scranton for season 8. " Pam will be pregnant when the season starts," she told Vulture.

While some shows have to scramble to come up with a believable story as to why a character is pregnant (see: 'Bones'), a bun in the oven actually makes sense for Pam and her husband, Jim, who already have a toddler.

Amy Poehler, Lea Michele and More Comedy Actresses Dish Career Ups and Downs (VIDEO)

Amy PoehlerWhat happens with you throw Amy Poehler, Jenna Fischer, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Julie Bowen and Teri Hatcher into a room together? Hilarity.

The aforementioned funny ladies gathered as part of The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable series to discuss their big breaks, best moments and those bad jobs everybody in the industry seems to have had.

In the video, Poehler attributes the success of her transition from improv to 'Saturday Night Live' to her experience with the Upright Citizens Brigade.

"It's very difficult to comment on your own career," Poehler said, with the other women nodding in agreement. "It's very strange, you kind of want to leave it up to other people to dissect it."

'The Office' star Fischer wasn't shy about revealing details of her career. She admitted to working as a telephone psychic and spending three years working at a car wash.

The Office, Michael's Last DundiesIt's Michael Scott's last Dundies ceremony on 'The Office,' but he's not leaving without one heck of a show.

If these promo clips from the appropriately titled 'Michael's Last Dundies' (Thursday, 9PM on NBC) are any indication, the episode will be one to remember.

Watch for Meredith's big win and surprising kiss, a war of words between Ryan and Pam (over crack and breadsticks, naturally) and a very, very nervous DeAngelo (Will Ferrell).

Will DeAngelo be able to fill Michael's shoes?

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 23rd 2010 3:00PM

SurvivorThis is either a hiccup or a sign of things to come: Ratings for most of the shows that aired last night were down, according to the Live Feed.

The ratings winner was CBS, who aired 'Survivor,' 'CSI' (which tied its all-time series low, with 13.3 million viewers and a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo) and 'The Mentalist.'

Fox placed second with 'Bones' and 'Fringe,' which pulled in 8.8 million and 5.9 million viewers, respectively.

Meanwhile, things didn't turn out well on the NBC front: 'Community' hit a series low, with a measly 3.9 million viewers,' while 'The Office' (6.4 million) and a double-feature of '30 Rock' (4.2 million, 5.2 million) hit season lows.

Also hitting a season low: ABC's 'Private Practice,' with just 7.4 million viewers.

'The Office' - 'Secretary's Day' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 23rd 2010 12:01AM
(S06E22) We haven't heard from the folks at Dunder Mifflin Scranton for almost a month, and it's refreshing that the first episode back, the antics are generally related to office-specific issues. Well, at least the better part of the episode was office-related.

Fey and Carell Prove That The Gap Between TV and Movie Stardom is Disappearing

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 5th 2010 4:02PM
Steve Carell and Tina Fey in 'Date Night'Let me start this post off by getting this out of the way right now: I have no idea whether 'Date Night,' the new big-screen comedy from Tina Fey and Steve Carell coming out on Friday, is any good, or whether it'll make any money. From what I can see from the ads, it isn't looking promising, but good movies have been victimized by bad ads for as long as TV and movies have co-existed.

What has been the most remarkable about the promotion and marketing of this movie, though, has been this: Nothing, from the movie ads to the breathless previews on entertainment channels, to any of the print stories, are making a big deal that this movie is headlined two (gulp) television stars. And it's the career paths of both Fey and Carell that make this so refreshing.

TV 101: Canaries In The Mineshaft (Pt. 1) - When Characters Become Caricatures

by Jay Black, posted Mar 26th 2010 11:21AM
Sometimes I feel like doing this to MY TV, but I'm married.One of my least favorite internet memes is the race among people who frequent TV blogs to be the first one to comment that a show has "jumped the shark." I'll take a busload of LOLCATS and Epic Beard Men if it means that I won't have to see "JTS!" four minutes into a show's pilot episode.

That said, the fact that JTS has been defanged by ubiquity doesn't take away from its ability to be a useful tool for analyzing pop-culture. Shows tend to weaken over time and the JTS moment is a fun way to decide where, exactly, the wheels came off.

In thinking about JTS, it occurred to me that there are a few warning signs that a show is about to jump. Today I'll be looking at the first in a series of canaries in the mineshaft: when characters become caricatures.

But on the latest episode of 'The Office,' Dwight meets a new girl -- Isabel -- who seems to change his mind about Angela. Dwight seems instantly lovestruck. "What's your blood-type?" he says to Isabel, using a new all-time classic pick-up line. Angela becomes enraged, and then romantic matters progress between Dwight and Isabel. "You are an impressive specimen," he says to her; and then they -- well, you'll just have to watch for yourself.

The Office, Andy and Erin kissYes! Yes! Yes! No, we're not re-enacting the Meg Ryan diner scene in 'When Harry Met Sally.' We're celebrating the fact that Andy and Erin kissed on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC).

And doesn't it seem appropriate that it would happen in a dump? We're not saying their relationship is dumpy in any way, but just that it's been a long and rocky road to get this far, with the '12 Days of Christmas' debacle and everything else. And it's so sweet how she put her little coat around him. Go, Andy and Erin!

One Man Does a Duet of TV's Greatest Themes

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 17th 2010 7:15PM
One man bands have always creeped me out. They never brought joy or happiness to my life. Even as a very, very small (in height, not width) child, they always looked like steampunk jukeboxes trapped inside some kind of twisted mechanical music machine that mocked their every step with annoying oompah-pah tunes.

One man, or rather two of him, have changed my perception on that phobia forever. Musician Fredrik Larsson has put together a beautiful rendition of TVs greatest tunes using nothing but a keyboard, an acoustic guitar and a DNA perfect clone of himself.

Trust me when I tell you this: the 'Charles in Charge' theme never sounded this, well, listenable.

Mindy Kaling of 'The Office' revealed today on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' that her character's first name, which is Kelly, could be an homage to Kelly Ripa, and Craig Robinson's character, whose last name is Philbin, could very well be a tribute to Regis Philbin.

It all seems even more plausible when Kaling points out that Philbin's son-in-law, Michael Schur, works as a writer on her show.
