Charlie Sheen may have been ousted from “Two and a Half Men” in favor of Ashton Kutcher. But don’t think for a second that he’s out of the television game. According to insiders, he is thisclose to inking a deal for a comeback show. You know, because he’s been gone for so long. We have no idea exactly what the series will be—beyond that it’s created by Charlie for Charlie—but rumor has it that there will be 10 episodes in the first season. The word on the street is that Sheen is working with Lionsgate TV on the show and that TBS has been the highest bidder so far, only the network claims that isn’t the case and that they aren’t even in discussions. Huh?
Perhaps sometime this week we’ll hear what Charlie has planned for this new show. But in the meantime, we’d like to gift him with eight concepts for his return to the small screen. Keep reading »
Who knew “The Bachelorette” could teach us such important lessons about grammar? (If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT.) The drama of this week’s episode all stemmed from that moment when Bentley Williams told Ashley Hebert that he’d like to leave the show with a “dot, dot, dot.” Well, this week, Ashley finally got her period. (As in the end of the sentence, not her monthly flow.) But not after losing one of her prime contenders and pissing off, oh, almost all of the guys. After the jump, the good, bad, and the WTF of last night’s episode.

“When I first got the script, I thought [Tara's new direction] was great … I think [Tara] needed a new lease on life. She totally comes back more zen, and she’s a feisty season one Tara who we all loved … I don’t think [Tara] was expecting [a lesbian relationship]. I think it just happened. I think it was one of those things where you just fall in love with who you fall in love with. I don’t think she labels herself as one thing or the next. She just started hanging out and the next thing you know, she was in love. I don’t think she was in love with Eggs. Every time she was with him she was either stoned or under a spell. I don’t think that was real. I think it’s going to take her some time to realize that, but I think what she has now is a little more significant.”
—Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara on “True Blood,” talks to Entertainment Weekly about her character’s plot twists in season four. In last night’s episode, we discovered that Tara had run way from Bon Temps, is now going by the name Toni, and has a girlfriend. Woo-hoo! I’m thrilled Rutina thinks that she and her new love have staying power. Here’s hoping no one offs this new lady. [EW] Keep reading »
It all started when Justin Bieber wore a Kelly Kapowski T-shirt to the MuchMusic Video Awards. Shortly after, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, who of course played Kelly on “Saved by the Bell,” decided to wear a Justin Bieber T-shirt to the premiere of “Horrible Bosses.” “I’m just trying to show the love back,” said Tiffani. “He’s adorable.” [NY Mag]
But things got way, way, way more meta from there… Keep reading »
Hands down, “Mob Wives” has been my favorite new show on television for its delicious trashiness. Last night’s season finale over-delivered in the drama department. And, as Renée Graziano would put it, we all had front row seats. After the jump—the good, the bad, and the head-scratching moments. (Also, SPOILERS!) Keep reading »
Last night’s season premiere of “True Blood” was as sprinkled with faerie dust as I ever could have hoped for. Since HBO decided to release the first six minutes of the episode weeks ago—which is kind of like the television equivalent of a drug dealer giving you your first dose free—I was wondering what tricks Alan Ball and crew would have up their sleeve. (If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT.) And this was the big twist: although Sookie is only in the faerie realm for a few minutes, she was missing from Bon Temps, Louisiana, for a year and two weeks. In fact, everyone—from sheriff Bellefleur to Bill to Jason—had presumed her dead. The joy of last night’s episode was catching up with all the characters we love and seeing where they ended up a year later, sans Sookie.
After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF of the episode. Keep reading »
