Pauley Perrette just started her ninth season as crime lab tech extraordinaire Abby Sciuto on NCIS, and while at CBS’s North Hollywood studios after a press event regarding the TV industry’s use of Twitter,  she says she disliked the concept of online social networking until she found out how it could be used. “This women and children’s shelter in Sylmar that is very close to my heart was closing,” says Perrette. “We knew [it would take] one million six [to keep it open]. Literally, we take people off the downtown streets of L.A. and put them in this beautiful place. […]Read On »

Robert Lennon Director: Niels Arden Oplev Network: CBS, Tuesdays @ 10 PM Original Telecast: September 20, 2011 Some crime procedural TV series have a genuinely original take on how to tell stories about murder investigations. Many other crime procedurals copy one another, changing a few details to avoid confusion and lawsuits. UNFORGETTABLE is one of the latter. True, no other character on television has our heroine Carrie Wells’ (Poppy […]Read On »

Stars: Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, Garrett Morris, Matthew Moy, Jonathan Kite Writers: Michael Patrick King, Whitney Cummings Director: James Burrows Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 19, 2011 You can’t stop mediocrity. Every year, half of the new shows wallow in a sameness that you can never quite escape. Whether it’s the umpteenth drama featuring cops or doctors or the 10,000th comedy featuring “friends.” CBS launches 2 BROKE GIRLS which is another one of those “friends” shows about two girls who are broke who strike up a friendship and try to find a way out of their horrible […]Read On »

FLASHPOINT is a series that is not only filmed in Toronto, it’s actually set in Toronto. The show concerns a Canadian SWAT team, which provides Canadians with a homegrown action drama and Americans with a window into how our northern neighbors handle violent crime and hostage situations. In one of those odd international scheduling situations, Season Four of FLASHPOINT began earlier in June in CTV, while in the U.S., Season Three is concluding on CBS tonight. This makes discussing spoilers a somewhat tricky issue for leading man Enrico Colantoni, who stars in the series as Sgt. Gregory Parker. Toronto native […]Read On »

One of the bigger strategic moves CBS made for their Fall 2011 Schedule is moving venerable warhorse CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION off its normal Thursday night perch at 9:00 to Wednesday at 10:00 pm to make way for the new J.J. Abrams produced series PERSON OF INTEREST. While speaking to the press today regarding their new schedule, Kelly Kahl, Senior Executive Vice President, CBS Primetime, explains that the CSI franchise (CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, CSI: NY, CSI: MIAMI) is alive and well even when the shows occasionally move. “Each [CSI] is winning its time period,” says Kahl. “It’s not like […]Read On »

While producer J.J. Abrams is known for his mind-bending, mythology-soaked series like LOST, ALIAS and FRINGE, CBS just picked up his latest production PERSON OF INTEREST created by MEMENTO scribe Jonathan Nolan. While CBS is not in the business of mythology-heavy genre shows, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler spoke to the press today about how this show will fit into its brand – especially by giving it the plum CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION slot on Thursday nights at 9:00 pm. “You have high-tech meets street vigilante and featuring very real, vivid characters,” says Tassler. “It’s a strong franchise and has […]Read On »

CBS announced its Fall 2011 schedule today and the network made some pretty aggressive moves to its schedule – all of which will strengthen its weak spots and cushion new shows. Some of the big moves include CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION vacating the Thursday at 9:00 slot its held for years and moving to Wednesday nights at 10:00 pm. Venerable comedy hit RULES OF ENGAGEMENT moves to Saturday nights at 8:00 pm in a grand CBS experiment of opening up more original programming on that graveyard of a night. And THE GOOD WIFE is sent to Sunday nights at 9:00 […]Read On »

Breaking News: Why CBS moved RULES OF ENGAGEMENT to Saturday Nights!?

Every year, there’s one programming decision that seems to be either incredibly stupid or quite inspired. The jury is still out on which category CBS’s attempt to move their sturdy comedy RULES OF ENGAGEMENT to Saturday night at 8:00 to anchor a new comedy block falls in. If Friday is TV’s death slot, than Saturday is a graveyard of weekly network repeats and news programs. To try and get a foothold back on Saturday by the networks would take a genius move. By using RULES as an anchor (it has a 22-episode order) to allow repeats for some of their […]Read On »

THE GOOD WIFE’s Julianna Marguiles takes time off the set to promote her hit drama’s second season. Playing a lawyer, says Marguiles, 44, isn’t unlike that of portraying a doctor on ER. Things happen very quickly, sometimes in a ridiculously short period of time, all for the sake of good drama. TAKE 1 On how, unlike in real life, things happen very quickly on TV… “Well, it has to because it’s only a 42-minute show,” says Marguiles. ” I mean, my husband is a lawyer, and the first time he saw (the show) — he wasn’t a big television watcher.  […]Read On »
