With COMMUNITY airing a three-episode Season 3 finale marathon tonight, Yvette Nicole Brown who plays the outspoken Shirley Bennett on the series chatted with ASSIGNMENT X about the season and where the show could go in Season 4. Here’s what she had to say … ASSIGNMENT X: Every time you watch the show, you don’t know what you’re going to get – it must be like that for the actors when they get the scripts. YVETTE NICOLE BROWN: It’s an acting exercise every week. Will I be doing a drama? Will I be doing a musical? I love it. Where …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Kyle Killen is wide AWAKE

NBC’s AWAKE, which airs its series finale next week, is a show that unfortunately did not find an audience. Partly a police procedural – its hero, Jason Isaacs’ character Michael Britten, is a Los Angeles police homicide detective – AWAKE has another component that makes it unique. Following a terrible car accident, Michael awakens to one reality where his wife has survived the crash but their teenaged son is dead; when he goes to sleep, he wakes up in another reality where his son is alive but his wife has perished. Cases in one reality also turn up in different …Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Bombshell” – Season Finale

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Theresa Rebeck Director: Michael Morris Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: May 15, 2012 My biggest regret of the entire 2011-2012 TV season – sticking with NBC’s Broadway musical series SMASH to the bitter end. And it’s been a hard pill to swallow. It’s a show that started off strong, and then, through a series of bad decisions and one awful storyline after another, destroyed the show’s entire existence. The story was all about finding the right Marilyn Monroe for a new Broadway production – and …Read On »

NBC’s SMASH, set in the world of Broadway musicals, has its first season finale tonight at 10 PM. Never fear – the show has been renewed for a second season. This year, one of the main plotlines has been the rivalry between veteran musical chorus member Ivy Bell, played by musical theatre veteran Megan Hilty, and New York newcomer Karen Cartwright, played by Katharine McPhee in her first scripted TV series lead. McPhee, a Los Angeles native, shot to pop fame as the runner-up in the 2006 fifth season of AMERICAN IDOL. Since then, she’s appeared in feature films, including …Read On »

Stars: Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 11, 2011 As NBC mulls the fate of PARKS AND RECREATION (it would seem an impossibility that they wouldn’t bring it back, even for a truncated season), the fourth season finale “Win, Lose Or Draw” proves why the show shouldn’t be on the bubble, and deserves a few more seasons of its well-oiled comedy. Like THE OFFICE, PARKS AND RECREATION derives its humor from the mockmentary approach. There’s a little more fluidity with the PARKS …Read On »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Previews”

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 »

TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Publicity”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Theresa Rebeck Director: Michael Mayer Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: April 23, 2012 You can’t help wondering, sometimes, if SMASH creator Theresa Rebeck, who is also a playwright, has had more than one run-in with a movie actor. In “Publicity,” an episode she wrote, she’s got more fun and games going with Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman), the movie actress brought in to play Marilyn in order to attract investors and an audience. But once again, the story line moves away from the show and more into the …Read On »

While it’s hard to get a straight answer out of COMMUNITY star Joel McHale, while speaking at today’s NBCUniversal Summer Press Day 2012, he did address the recent voicemail of Chevy Chase chewing out creator Dan Harmon for chewing him out during the wrap party for not shooting a scene in the finale. “There are four more voicemails coming out,” says McHale dead-pan. “That will make it a nice series. There is going to be a book on tape … or CD and it will be read out loud by Samuel L. Jackson.” McHale then goes on to say, again …Read On »

While at today’s NBCUniversal Summer Press Day 2012, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES actor Daniel Gillies hinted that he’s not completely done with THE VAMPIRE DIARIES even though his character Elijah Mikaelson had left town at the end of “All My Children” and he is also starring in the new NBC medical drama SAVING HOPE debuting on June 7. “I have not entirely left THE VAMPIRE DIARIES,” says Gillies. “Fortunately we film at different times during the year. I’m deeply indebted to what [THE VAMPIRE DIARIES] has given me, but this show [SAVING HOPE] takes precedence. I love [DIARIES executive producers] Julie …Read On »
