Will Chynna Doing 'DWTS' Derail Album on 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 2:00AM
Chynna Phillips, 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'Wilson Phillips is one of the biggest musical acts of all time, so it's a big deal that they've decided to reunite for an album. 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On' (Sun., 9PM ET on TV Guide) is set to chronicle the creation of that album, but right away it hit a major hurdle when Chynna Phillips had to tell bandmates Carnie and Wendy Wilson that she'd agreed to be on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

She was surprised that they weren't as supportive of this "huge opportunity" for her. Carnie was concerned about the album they'd committed to do, while Wendy couldn't seem to get her jaw hinge to work. It was certainly a huge blow, but it might have gone over easier had Chynna told them that this was a huge opportunity for all of them.

Katie Cazorla Is Excited by All Her Celebrity Guests on 'Nail Files' (VIDEO)

Lorenzo Lamas, 'Nail Files''Nail Files' (Tue., 10PM ET on TV Guide) is certainly a different foray into reality television. The series follows Hollywood nail salon owner Katie Cazorla, but she's not like most reality people in Hollywood.

During a special launch party, she is so charmingly giddy and excited about all of the celebrities who stop by, from Carnie Wilson to Lorenzo Lamas and even Erik Estrada. The show kept cutting to "talking head" clips of her clapping her hands and squealing in excitement.

It's kind of cute that she gets so star struck considering she works in Hollywood. We particularly got a kick out of her reaction when Lamas explained that his fiance had already heard of the place because she'd found out about it.

In the Midst of a Swell Season, 'Supernatural' Wins TV Guide Fan Favorite Poll

by Maureen Ryan, posted Dec 6th 2010 10:15AM
In the grand scheme of things, how important is one magazine's Fan Favorite poll? Perhaps not all that important.

But I must admit, I was quite cheered to learn that 'Supernatural' won TV Guide's first annual Fan Favorite poll, and thus the CW show will get its first-ever TV Guide cover with the Dec. 13 issue (it hits the stands Dec. 9).

Sure, it's fun to see Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles pull their best 'Zoolander' faces for the cover (that is always entertaining). But the cover represents additional recognition for the drama, which it richly deserves. As I noted in my review of Friday's episode, 'Supernatural' is having one hell of a good season. Will end up being as truly glorious as season 4 or season 2? Who knows, but 'Supernatural' always seems to do well with its even-numbered seasons.

In any event, in its sixth season, the show has essentially reconfigured its DNA in highly intriguing ways instead of resting on its laurels. I can't think of many shows that were this creative this late into their runs. There aren't a lot.

Everyone Loves Ellen on 'Idol'

Ellen DeGeneres judges on American IdolJust about everyone seemed to love Ellen DeGeneres's debut on 'American Idol' this week, including viewers and fellow host Kara DioGuardi. TVWeek.com reports that ratings for Ellen's Tuesday night debut were up one percent versus last year's first episode in Hollywood (although they note that the first episode on Hollywood always gets a bump in ratings). The site also reported that 27.7 million people tuned in, the most viewers the show has had this season.

DioGuardi lauded Ellen's debut to TV Guide, explaining that Ellen "knows more about music than you think she does" and saying she was a good judge of talent who speaks to contestants "with kindness, but also had criticism in there."

How The Young and the Restless got Eric Braeden back

Sometimes it's true that all's well that ends well. And sometimes to reach that happy ending, arms are twisted, feelings are hurt, and bad blood is spilled. In the case of The Young and the Restless and actor Eric Braeden, there was a good deal of acrimony on both sides. The fact that Braeden is back in the fold now and he will continue as Victor Newman for the foreseeable future, doesn't obscure the fact that it was a nasty situation.

What's the best episode of all-time?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 12th 2009 3:32PM
Seinfeld
I don't mean of one particular show, I'm talking about the best episode of any TV series? Not an easy thing to do. Just think of how many shows and how many episodes we've had in 60+ years. The new issue of TV Guide is out, and while the full list of the 100 best episodes isn't online yet (here are #'s 100-81), we do know some episodes in the top ten (TV Guide did a similar issue back in 1997).

The number one ep? "The Contest" from Seinfeld. "Chuckles Bites The Dust" from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and "Opie The Birdman" from The Andy Griffith Show are up there too, as is the pilot episode of Lost and the "College" episode of The Sopranos. What's the first episode that comes to mind when you think of great TV?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 23rd 2009 6:00AM
Check us out, dishing about 'Lost' on the TV Guide Channel!

I have a confession to make: I could talk about the mysteries, love triangles and time flashing on 'Lost' all day.

Now I have a little shameless promotion: Other people like talking 'Lost' with me too. Namely my fellow fans John Fugelsang and Teresa Strasser at TV Guide's 'TV Watercooler.' They invite me on their show each week to dish about what's going on and spill a few sneaks about what's to come.

A little fuzzy about what happened on the season 5 premiere? Check out our chat from this week's episode after the jump. Still want more? Read our A-to-Z Guide, watch full episodes online and read our recaps to prep for the rest of this phenomenal season. And don't be shy! Comment if you have questions that need answering. Like I said, I never got tired of this topic.

TV Guide drops The CW from their grid

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 13th 2009 8:03AM
The CWI don't watch anything on The CW, but I know that there are a lot of people who do. Gossip Girl, Supernatural, Smallville, 90210, One Tree Hill, Privileged. It's always the last channel in the ratings of the big five networks (including ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC), but these shows have their fans. So it's a little odd that TV Guide would drop the network from its grid (scroll down).

Yup, the long-running magazine says that there just isn't enough room to list all of the channels now, so they've gotten rid of The CW and other channels recently, including MTV and their own TV Guide Network (though that was just sold to Lionsgate).

Mad Men, Weeds studio buys TVGuide.com and TV Guide Network

Lionsgate
Hey, if this means more coverage for Mad Men, I'm all for it.

Lionsgate, the studio that produces both that AMC show and Showtime's Weeds, has bought both TVGuide.com and The TV Guide Network. This may come as a surprise to readers who thought that they were sold a couple of weeks ago to someone else. Turns out that deal was final yet and Lionsgate came in quickly with another offer and it was OK'd.

TV Guide sold for a dollar

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 16th 2008 1:04PM
TV GuideMonths ago I suggested that all of TV Squad's writers and readers should pool their money and buy TV Guide. Turns out that if we had done that we would have paid too much money. The magazine just sold for $1.00.

That's not a typo, and I'm not talking about the cover price being reduced. TV Guide itself was actually bought from Macrovision this week for $1.00.

TV Guide picks the best pilots (and gets it wrong)

Lost
I'm sorry, but while I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion about "best this" and "best that" (not to be confused with "favorite this" and "favorite that"), sometimes such a list has some entries that just make you scratch your head so much that you have to throw the whole list away and start over. Case in point, this list of the 10 Best TV Pilots from the new issue of TV Guide.

While I'm not going to sit here and argue about shows on the list like Lost, The Sopranos, and Alias, I am going to take issue with the inclusion of Desperate Housewives, The Shield, and Football Wives. Honestly, are these true representatives of the best first episodes of TV shows? Forget about what the shows became (great shows can often have so-so early episodes), just the first episodes themselves. Was there truly anything special about Desperate Housewives that would place it ahead of...oh, I don't know, 400 other shows in the history of television?

TV Guide goes all ABC (for one issue)

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 19th 2008 3:01PM
TV GuideIndustry staple magazine TV Guide will be co-opted by the Walt Disney-owned ABC network for its August 25th issue. The issue will have 21 ad pages, all of which will be promoting ABC. It will also contain a DVD with a sneak-peak at ABC's fall shows.

To me, this willingness of TV Guide to prostitute itself out for an issue is an example of how print media is in decline and how desperate TV Guide must be for advertising dollars. On the other hand, TV Guide is released with such frequency that people will likely forget such an advertisement onslaught by a single network by the following week. If CBS wanted to do the exact same thing the following week, I doubt TV Guide would say "no."

If you're an ABC fan, this issue could become something of a collectible. If you're not, then it'll probably just be annoying. With the existence of the Internet, does anybody even subscribe to TV Guide anymore?

TV's highest paid stars, starting with Charlie Sheen

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 5th 2008 8:03AM
Charlie SheenOn Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen plays a vulgar playboy, a shallow guy who's more interested in booze, women and having a good time than being responsible and working hard. The role has earned him a couple of Emmy nominations and a lot of money. A lot of money. In fact, in a new poll from TV Guide, Charlie Sheen is the highest paid actor on TV, making $825,000 per episode; in a season of 23 shows, that comes out to nearly $20 million.

That's more than he could make in the movies, and unlike films, Charlie can keep on raking it in on Two and a Half Men for years. The show is a huge hit in syndication, so more episodes will simply mean more money down the road.

Right behind Charlie on the list is fellow CBS leading man, CSI's William Petersen. He's making $600,000 an episode. He's only doing ten episodes this season, but since he's also an executive producer on the series, he's probably making even more.
