HBO’s VINYL, which has its first-season finale Sunday April 17, and is renewed for next year, deals with the rock music scene in New York of the 1970s. Between two of the executive producers, Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese (who directed the premiere episode), a lot of knowledge about the milieu, the era and the environment has gone into this tale of struggling record mogul Richie Finestra, portrayed by Bobby Cannavale. Ray Romano, known for starring in the half-hour comedy EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, the hour-long dramedy MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE and his stand-up work, has a change-of-pace role on […]Read On »

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, the second spin-off of the long-lived and still top-rated NCIS, airs on CBS Tuesdays at 9 PM, right behind its progenitor. The U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service in New Orleans is a little more laid-back than its East Coast counterpart, or even the Southern California branch we see in NCIS: LOS ANGELES (now in its new night, Mondays at 10 PM). Audiences originally met Scott Bakula’s Special Agent Dwayne Pride and some of his crew – Special Agent Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black), Special Agent Meredith Brody (Zoe McLellan) and coroner Dr. Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder) – on […]Read On »

TNT’s series MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE returns for the second part of its second season tonight. The well-regarded comedy/drama concerns a trio of lifelong friends – series co-creator Ray Romano’s divorced Joe Tranelli, Andre Braugher’s stressed family man and car dealership owner Owen Thoreaux Jr. and Scott Bakuka’s less than successful actor Terry Elliott – who are wading through the treacherous waters of life’s middle years together. In addition to having a strong stage career, Bakula is something of a science-fiction/horror icon, given his years on QUANTUM LEAP and STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE, his lead role in Clive Barker’s film […]Read On »

On a more serious note, he says MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, which returns in the summer, has both a strong female and male audience. “It’s not just a guy show,” says Romano. “The women are strong characters on the show too. The guys are real, so it’s not just […]Read On »
