Stars: Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh Writers: David Kohan, Max Mutchnick Director: James Burrows Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 24, 2012 One of the biggest surprises about the new CBS comedy PARTNERS is how safe it plays its premise. That turns out to be both a good and a bad thing. It follows architects Louis (Michael Urie) and Joe (David Krumholtz) as they navigate their long-term professional career and their own personal love lives. The twist (if you can call it that) is Louis is gay and Joe is straight. In the pilot, Joe …Read On »

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Jon Favreau Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 17, 2012 What happens when you take the brains behind one of the most successful horror television series, SUPERNATURAL, and combine the brains behind LOST, ALIAS and the relaunch of STAR TREK and mix it with the guy who directed IRON MAN and IRON MAN 2 – a pretty damn good pilot. REVOLUTION is the interesting idea from Erik Kripe (SUPERNATURAL), JJ Abrams (LOST, ALIAS) and Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) about …Read On »

With Season 1 of DALLAS just wrapped, the successful TNT continuation of the classic CBS series, we’ve seen one of the rare instances where characters from an original series have been expertly integrated into a next generation saga. As executive producer and occasional director of DALLAS, Michael M. Robin knew the risks and rewards of bringing such an iconic show back. We spoke with Robin at a recent Paley Center event in Beverly Hills promoting the THE TELEVISION OUT OF THE BOX exhibit featuring props, wardrobe and sets from classic Warner Bros. Television projects. Here’s what he had to say …Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Revelations” – Season Finale

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre & Robert Rovner Director: Steve Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: August 8, 2012 The build up was intense, the results, not quite what I expected. Still, the DALLAS Season One finale “Revelations” was only partially intriguing, somewhat suspenseful and not hardly at all surprising. Perhaps, it was because my expectations were too high. Or maybe it was because I was led to believe I could expect above average greatness, every time, ever week. This week, arguably, the …Read On »

TV Review: GO ON – Season 1 – “Pilot”

Stars: Matthew Perry, Laura Benanti, Julie White, John Cho Writer: Scott Silveri, series created by Scott Silveri Director: Todd Holland Network: NBC, Tuesdays Original Airdate: August 8, 2012 As Los Angeles Times reviewer Mary McNamara just observed, television has done very well with both psychotherapy (FRASIER, THE BOB NEWHART SHOW) and Matthew Perry (FRIENDS) in the half-hour comedy genre. Putting the two together seems like a good idea. The first twist in GO ON is that Perry’s character, snarky and closed-off radio sportscaster Ryan, is a patient rather than the therapist, which works very well. When we meet Ryan, his …Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Family Business”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Bruce Rasmussen Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: Aug 1st, 2012 As we reach the end of Season 1 DALLAS, I can’t help but feel sad, TV depressed that is. After all, a show finally comes around that can not only peak my interest but also keep it throughout the entire season. Now, granted the season is only ten episodes – note to producers: that’s not enough – but still after one episode of ANGER MANAGEMENT and …Read On »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Julia Cohen Director: Michael Katleman Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 25th, 2012 It’s only episode number eight of DALLAS and yet we are at cliffhanger number 33 already. We last saw John Ross being driven away in a police car. Not able to explain his DNA under Veronica Martinez’s fingernails, John Ross (Josh Henderson), no surprise, is arrested for her murder. But, as always, there is more to this case than meets the eye. John Ross refuses to give …Read On »

Despite an uneven first season, NBC renewed SMASH for a second season and brought in new showrunner Josh Safron to get the show focused. At the NBCUniversal Summer 2012 Press Tour, Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt discussed the changes on the horizon and why they were made. “I’m inordinately proud of SMASH on so many levels,” explains Greenblatt. “The complexity of producing that show every week is just incredible. And as a television producer and as a Broadway producer, which I once was, I am in awe of what we can do on that show every week. It’s a big soap …Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Collateral Damage”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 18th, 2012 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again the DALLAS theme is one of the best TV theme songs ever, instrumental or lyrical. And to boot, the show, too is one of the best ever. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new DALLAS inspired other ’80s nighttime soap operas – as they were once called – to be revamped. The return of FALCON CREST and KNOT’S LANDING may be just around the …Read On »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 11th, 2012 Not many shows can be resurrected so beautifully as DALLAS has been. The new cast fits nicely in with the old cast and together they are creating one of the best new dramas in years. Josh Henderson leads the cast as John Ross perfectly. He has the sinister DNA and charming personality of his dad J.R. (Larry Hagman) which allows him to woo those around him and yet he’ll be the first to …Read On »
