While reality show hits seem to wane and wax over the years, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee says he expects DANCING WITH THE STARS to remain on the schedule for years to come. “Obviously each year the casting sometimes tells you where it’s going to come out. Although, I have to say we started with a weaker cast this year, and with J.R. [Martinez] winning it, it was a wonderful storyline,” says Lee. “Look how much THE BACHELOR has lasted and done so strongly for us. It’s romantic. It’s right in the heart of our brand, so I personally …Read On »

If Fox has it’s way, they definitely want to keep him in the IDOL fold, …Read On »

On NBC’s CHUCK, now on Friday nights at 8 PM as it winds up its fifth and final season, the title hero played by Zachary Levi is still juggling his Buy More workplace and his secret identity as a spy.

Washington,D.C.native Krinsky’s background in standup comedy has served him well in his role as Jeff, who until earlier this season has been wandering around …Read On »
