Steven Weber lands a sitcom at NBC

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 23rd 2007 2:01PM

Steven WeberSteven Weber's a really good actor, and NBC must like him a lot. He's going to star in a new sitcom for the network called Zip.

The comedy is about a guy named Trip Stringer (only on TV can someone have a name like that) who is broke and lives in Beverly Hills and always tries to come up with get rich quick schemes with the help of friends. Hopefully this won't be another Knights of Prosperity.

Here's hoping fourth time's the charm for Tim Daly

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 6th 2007 10:20AM

Tim Daly and Kate Walsh of Private PracticePoor Tim Daly. Ever since Wings ended back in 1997 he hasn't had much luck in the television world. Sure, he's had a number of successful guest appearances, and he did have a good run as the voice of Clark Kent/Superman on the WB's Superman: The Animated Series, but those don't really count. Where his luck has been failing is on series where he has had a leading role.

It's not like the shows themselves were bad. Quite the contrary, all three shows that Daly starred in were decent critical successes. In addition, Tim himself was credited by professional and fan alike as having a strong performance in all these shows. The problem was either the fan base wasn't strong enough to keep the shows on the air or the networks just decided they had a more successful show to fill the spot.

Tim Daly may be the McHottie on the Grey's spinoff

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 7th 2007 6:33PM
tim dalyAccording to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Tim Daly is poised to take a leading role in that spinoff to Grey's Anatomy that everyone is all hyped up about. He'll guest star in a two-hour episode that is meant to be the launching point for the spinoff. His character is described as "handsome, sincere, like a McDreamy." He'll have some competition for Resident Hunk because Taye Diggs has already signed on to the spinoff.

Series creator Shonda Rhimes is reportedly planning a spinoff to Grey's Anatomy, starring Kate Walsh, whose character Addison Shepherd is about to leave Seattle Grace Hospital. The spingboard episode is set to air in May.

Paul Adelstein, formerly of Prison Break, is also set to co-star in the two-hour episode though his role is not clear. There will also be a female psychiatrist and a female fertility specialist in the springboard episode and (presumably) the spinoff.

Which is better: Must-See now or Must-See then?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 19th 2006 3:33PM

Friends When NBC announced their new Thursday night schedule, a lot of people (including NBC) started to say that this was "Must-See TV" all over again. And not only does Newsday's Verne Gay agree, he thinks that the new schedule is better than the old one.

What do you think? There were many different "Must-See" Thursday night schedules on NBC over the years, so we could pick and choose. Some had Frasier, some had Wings, some had Mad About You. But let's make it an even 10 years ago. The 1996 "Must-See" Thursday night schedule was Friends at 8, The Single Guy at 8:30, Seinfeld at 9, Suddenly Susan at 9:30, and ER at 10. The schedule now is My Name Is Earl at 8, The Office at 8:30, Scrubs at 9, 30 Rock at 9:30, and ER at 10.

The Five: Favorite TV lineups of all-time

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 22nd 2006 5:17PM
Bob Newhart Show1. CBS, Saturday nights, 1970s: Come on, how can you miss with shows like Bob Newhart, All in the Family, Mary Tyler Moore, and The Carol Burnett Show. I think Carol Burnett was one of the first shows that my mom let me stay up late to watch.

2. ABC, Friday nights, 1970s: The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family. Yeah, that's right, The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family! You got a problem with that? My sister and I would go down to the corner store and stock up on candy, chips, and ice cream, and then race home to watch Marcia get hit in the nose with a football. Good times.

  • Every year, TeeVee.org creates an elaborate April Fool's web site. This year it's the TeeVeePedia!
  • Ken Levine describes his first directing gig, on a Wings episode in the mid 90s. (Side note: I was an extra on a Wings episode several episodes before this and I probably met Ken. Life is funny.)

Tim Daly cast in new ABC drama

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 9th 2006 8:43AM
tim daly nine livesSigh. I really wish Eyes was still on. Tim Daly was so terrific in that show and, quite frankly, it makes me sad to see him move on to something else. Stupid, I know. He's a great actor (and quite a hunk) and it's awesome that he's getting work. So, I'll get over it and tell you about his new role and cross my fingers that this show does well (and is good!).

He was just added to an ensemble cast of an ABC drama called Nine Lives, about nine people whose lives collide when they are all part of a botched bank robbery. Daly is a terrific comedic actor, but his IMDB bio shows he has quite an extensive acting resume in dramatic roles. Co-stars include Dana Davis (aka Cora Briggs on Veronica Mars) and Scott Wolf (Party of Five).

The Five: Stars I'd like to see back on TV

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 19th 2006 10:14AM

Bruce Campbell1. Bruce Campbell: The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. was one of the great short-lived shows of all-time. A really entertaining mix of western and science fiction, with a perfect star. Campbell later had roles in Ellen and Jack of All Trades, but it's been a while. I can picture him in a clever private eye type show, or maybe a smart comedy. Whatever is, he should be back on TV (and I don't mean those Sci-Fi Channel flicks...)
