Exclusive Interview: UGLY AMERICANS creator Devin Clark reveals the Season 2 dark side of New York City

The characters of UGLY AMERICANS | ©2011 Comedy Central

The world of New York City is not what it seems in the Comedy Central animated series UGLY AMERICANS (which has its second season premiere tonight). In the hilariously bizarre series (which features animation in the EC Comics vein), Mark Lilly is our hero – a social worker for the Department of Integration who has to deal with zombies, demons and wizards on a regular basis. The key to UGLY AMERICANS success is it plays everything very seriously, deriving the comedy out of the outlandish situations surrounding our hero. Creator Devin Clark spoke with ASSIGNMENT X this week in an …Read On »

Stars: Callie Thorne, Marc Blucas, Mehcad Brooks, Scott Cohen, Patrick Johnson, Hannah Marks Writers: Liz Kruger & Craig Shapiro Director: Kevin Dowling Network: USA, Wednesdays @ 10 PM Airdate: June 29, 2011 USA’s new series NECESSARY ROUGHNESS (which has nothing, outside of football, in common with the 1991 feature of the same name starring Scott Bakula) fits in with the network’s lineup of quirky professionals taking quirky jobs. Indeed, the show has a modestly original premise – certainly no one is going to come away grumbling, “Oh, not another dramedy about a therapist treating professional sports figures!” Based on the …Read On »

Network: NBC Original Telecast: June 29, 2011 A one hour results show for THE VOICE? Really? NBC didn’t feel the need to stretch it to two hours plus? What is wrong with these people! Well, all I can say is Thank you!  Thank you NBC for the most painless results show in the history of these reality singing competitions After whittling the contestants down to four finalists (one from each of the Coaches Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera), it’s now time to crown a champion.

While speaking with John Noble at last week’s Saturn Awards where he took home a Best Supporting Actor prize for his work on the Fox series FRINGE, ASSIGNMENT X caught up with him for this exclusive chat about the forthcoming Season 4. While he was tight-lipped about revealing too many secrets, he did give his thoughts on what he would like to see happen now that Joshua Jackson’s character Peter has ceased to exist on the show after saving the universe in the Season 3 finale. “I haven’t talked to the writers,” Noble admits. “I try to get stuff out …Read On »

Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: June 28, 2011 Now here’s what an AMERICAN IDOL finale should look like – four worthy performers battling it out for the crown. Four quality singers. Four singers who would all make kick-ass albums. And four coaches who currently have pop cultural relevance and are powerhouses in their own right. Hail THE VOICE. The show kicked off with the four Coaches Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton tackling another Queen song – “Under Pressure” and doing it justice. It was much better than their Queen butchering a couple of …Read On »

Network: NBC, airs whenever the network wants it to air Original Telecast: June 28, 2011 The question keeps coming up over and over again as I sit and watch hundreds of people make fools of themselves on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. Why? Why? Why? Don’t these people have loved ones advising them not to go on television and embarrass themselves? I don’t get it. Yet, they keep on coming. Many like Rak & Tak, a married couple, both doctors apparently, aspire to be singers. There is one very, very big, humongous, ginormous problem with their dream – they can’t hold a …Read On »
