Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terri Edda Miller & Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 7, 2012 It’s not enough, apparently, that the producers of CASTLE spent most of Season Three teasing us with the will they/won’t they relationship between author and dilettante crime fighter Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett. It’s not enough that they spent this entire season doing the same. They had to spend the entire season finale needlessly and ridiculously teasing us with “Always.” We do […]Read On »

Stars: Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, William Levy, Maria Menounos, Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: May 8th, 2012 Well, partly surprisingly and partly not, DANCING WITH THE STARS: The Results double elimination show once again demonstrated the importance of the fans’ votes. Taken out too early, perhaps, were Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower who were in second place after Monday’s show but were untimely dismissed tonight. Not so shocking was the elimination of Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She had landed at the bottom of the judges’ scores time and time again so even though […]Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writer: David Marshall Grant Director: Robert Duncan McNeill Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: May 8, 2012 As SMASH nears next week’s Season 1 finale, one can’t help but scratch their head at how a once promising show sunk so low, so fast. While I still admit to being fascinated by a handful of characters and the backstage antics pertaining to the Broadway music itself, it’s the misguided decisions where the writers have forced their generally well-written characters to partake in that just strips the show of […]Read On »

It was game on tonight on DANCING WITH THE STARS. All couples brought out their best moves and tricks. Some worked, some faltered. But, with a double elimination coming their way Tuesday, this wasn’t the time to play it safe. William Levy & Cheryl Burke topped the leader board tonight with a perfect 30 in their first round. The couples’ second round dances were accompanied by another male or female pro of their choice. Levy & Burke choose Tony Dovolani to grace the floor with them during their Paso Doble, keeping them in first place at the end of the […]Read On »
