Stars: Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O’Connell, Kal Penn, Chris Smith, Rebecca Breeds Writer: Rob Greenberg Director: Rob Greenberg Network: CBS, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 30, 2013 In what should have been the worst TV comedy of the fall season, turns out to be one of the best. WE ARE MEN, for all its awkward attempts at sexist humor, provides the backdrop for what is  the freshest new comedy on any of the networks. It also is a stand-out among the CBS comedies, because unlike the disjointed THE CRAZY ONES, it feels like a mini-movie. Give credit to creator Rob […]Read On »

For its first four seasons, THE LEAGUE, the half-hour comedy created by Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, was a staple for FX Network. Now FX is moving THE LEAGUE to its new outlet FXX for the show’s fifth season, which debuted Wednesday September 4 at 10:30 PM, following fellow FX transfer IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, which is now on FXX Wednesdays at 10 PM. Asked about the move, Paul Scheer, who plays THE LEAGUE’s much-bullied Andre, quips, “I was just happy that FXX isn’t a p**n channel.

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

Dimension Films presented the premiere of SCARY MOVIE V on April 11th at the Cinerama Dome, Hollywood. It was a very crowded carpet full of electronic press and photographers, and they put photographers in two sections. Landing up standing by the glass doors to the theater a lot of the stars did not stop or were in a hurry to get inside, so most of us in that section shot whomever we could get to stop. Walking into the theaters were the stars of the movie, which included: Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Heather Locklear, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Jerry O’Connell, […]Read On »

McQueen, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Dreyfuss Writer: Peter Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg Director:Alejandre Aja Distributor: Sony Home Entertainment/Dimension Films Suggested Retail Price: $34.95 Not since SNAKES ON A TRAIN has a mainstream feature film so embraced its inner cheesiness and heralded it proudly in its marketing campaign then last summer’s PIRANHA. Released in 3D, it featured so much gore and nudity (not to mention a glorious underwater girl-on-girl ballet), that it clearly honored its exploitative roots as a remake of the 1979 Joe Dante directed original. Granted, Dante’s film was […]Read On »
